  1. To me, his comp is Terrell Suggs. He's already got NFL level hands. He also has a quick first step. I'd definitely take him at 31.
  2. Used CBS's big board. I believe that several highly-touted rushers will fall to the second round. Several very good ones will also be available at the top end of the third. Again, we draft three first-year starters and a few more guys that will replace high-priced contracts next year Sign Draft Trade 1st Rd Pick (31) to Chicago for their 2nd (36) and 4th (100). Chicago takes DeShone Kizer Harris, Rivers, and Eflien start day one. All plug and play guys with high IQ's. Justin Evans provides an excellent back up for Keanu. Tanoh is the Shelby replacement for next year. Bucky Hodges has 1st-round talent and a 7th round motor. Quinn gets him motivated and he becomes a nice complement to Hooper. Josh Harvey Clemons will push Campbell hard at WLB, and will also have the capability of competing for the backup SS position. Depth Chart
  3. I don't think Obi is going in the first. I also wouldn't be surprised if Lamp slid to the second as well.
  4. I made that exact same trade in my first 2017 mock. I still think that it's a viable one. I had Bowser in that one too, although much later.
  5. Very interesting. I don't mind Watson at one. I pretty much agree with that. Your EDGE rankings are very interesting.
  6. Looking at his tape, he's definitely got the tools. He can be a speed to power guy from day one. The problem is he has no idea what to do with his hands. He seems to be smart enough, though. He also seems to be a bit slow off of the snap, but I believe that's because he's going off of the ball instead of first movement. He will be a good player in time, but he's not a first rounder. We should trade back if we are targeting him.
  7. I understand your logic, but my perspective is different. It's like having a coupon for paper towels. As an allegory, if I can get a bunch of Brawny really cheap and it hasn't been on sale in forever, I'm buying up the store and stocking up. I could buy a few after I've gotten all of my other groceries at regular price, but I'd rather get all of the Brawny I can, because all of that regularly priced stuff will always be there. I will be rich in Brawny, and Brawny is the best. That could also work, but I'd rather take on the pass rush early. If you get your DE/OLB in this year's draft, then it frees you to take care of DT early next year and get a gamechanger. I'd still love to get a guy like Larry Ogunjobi this year, but I'd do that 3rd round or later. I'm going pass rush early. I'm not apposed to going OG in the first or second either. As long as one of our first two picks addresses the rush. Personally, I want us to trade down for extra picks this year just so we can stockpile at multiple defensive positions.
  8. That's exactly why I'd take an Edge guy early. Maybe even two of them. The guaranteed money for both Shelby and Reed will pretty much be paid out this year. If you get two really good edge guys out of this draft that can outperform them, then you can save cap for next year by cutting both. It's been stated that Crawford will play inside. I just believe when a draft is really deep at a certain position, you must capitalize. It doesn't happen that way very often.
  9. I wouldn't unless we traded down for more pics. Any draft that doesn't address the pass rush in the first two rounds is aloof considering this draft class. Contrary to popular opinion, this draft has enough talent to get serviceable INTERIOR LINEMEN through the 4-5 rounds. Guys like Feeney, Dorian Johnson, Dion Dawkins, Pat Elfien, Ethan Pocic, Isaac Asiata, etc will be there between the 2nd and fifth rounds. That list doesn't even include the list of OT's that are best suited to move inside. There aren't a lot of elite OT prospects, but there are plenty of interior linemen that will fit our system. We need a bookend DE to pair with Vic. That person wasn't on the roster last year, period. We saw flashes from vets, but no consistency. We need to address that early in a EDGE-rich draft.
  10. Fanspeak using CBS's board (updated 4/11/2017). If this happens, the pass rush is fixed, you get a very solid OG, and a dynamic backup SS. 31: R1P31 EDGE CHARLES HARRIS - Solid DE in any configuration. MISSOURI 63: R2P31 EDGE DEREK RIVERS - SLB day one. Beasely becomes LEO/RDE only. Imagine Beasley, Harris, and Rivers all rushing together. YOUNGSTOWN STATE 95: R3P31 C PAT ELFLEIN - Starting RG day one. Compared to Travis Frederick OHIO STATE 136: R4P29 EDGE TANOH KPASSAGNON - Can play base DE and move inside as well. Allows us to move on from Shelby in 2018 and save cap. Achilles are 2-year injuries. VILLANOVA 174: R5P30 S JOSH HARVEY-CLEMONS - SS depth and can play WLB. Potential Boom pick. LOUISVILLE 249: R7P31 LB JALEN REEVES-MAYBIN - Potential Boom pick at WLB. Has speed in spades. TENNESSEE
  11. Good to see that Quinn made the visit to observe. He's a teacher too. Hopefully we will continue to see our guys improve from year to year.
  12. My prediction is that Joe Mixon will get drafted late and go on to be the best back out of this draft. The team that takes a chance on him will ultimately be rewarded by his play. They'll take a good amount of heat for it, though.
  13. The comp for Tru's contract is Darius Slay. When Slay got his, Tru new exactly what to ask for. I'd imagine that the difficulty in signing him was not the overall contract amount, but the structure of it. The front-loaded deal should be a sign as to what they plan to do cap wise. We will see a Free deal and a MR2 deal very soon.
