  1. He’d be a top 3 pick if he could come out
  2. Mykal Walker has some of the same traits that I saw in Jamie Collins when he came out. I think he has the tools to be an every-down LB who can do a little bit of everything. He can take on blockers (powerful hands allow him to stack and shed with ease), he can rush the passer, and he can cover a little bit. Big fan of his.
  3. I think the TE, RB, WR, and LB class is absolutely loaded. The talent at TE is insane. For reference, Cole Kmet would be my #5 TE in this group. The DL group has some big, quick fatties at NT in Wilson, Brown III, and Shelvin. Twyman is already one of my favorite 3-techs too. Edge has two long, uber athletic prospects in Noah Taylor and Rousseau. Both will be first rounders easily. Hutchinson is a wrecking ball anywhere on the DL. I really love the LBers though. Parsons is a rare talent at LB, and Cameron McGrone is very similar to him, just a little raw, but they are both scary good. I see 5 linebackers who could be first rounders. WR class could be even better than the 2020 class surprisingly. OL has potential to be great as well. If Trey Smith declared this year, he probably would’ve been OG #1.
  4. My early prospect list for 2021. Could be a really strong class. Quarterbacks: Trevor Lawrence, Clemson Justin Fields, Ohio State Trey Lance, NDSU Jamie Newman, Georgia K.J.

  5. I just think the FO likes Kazee and Rico too much. Next year is a great FS class though, so I hope that’s our first pick in 2021. Just to name a few: Jevon Holland, Oregon Trevon Moehrig, TCU Richard Lecounte III, Georgia
  6. It’s clear the Falcons wanted some competitive, tough players who love the game of football and are thirsty to get on the field. They all have a competitive attitude and are ready to get to work. Have some versatility and athleticism to their game too.
  7. I think we will look at this pick as a steal in a couple years. Think he will be better than Campbell after he gets some experience.
  8. Guarantee Terrell, Davidson, and Walker start at some point this year.
  9. Coverage Spacing - He's got a surprising amount of range considering he isn't overly bursty or dynamic. But he's sharp — shows good instincts and can shade and drop versus layered routes to understand where the QB wants to attack. Does well in deep half and underneath zones, specifically. Acceleration - He's confident. He doesn't bring a lot of explosive range and if you isolate him in C1, you can work the sidelines against him. But he's quick to step down or flash from hash and he's got effective ability to step down from off coverage if you're working him in the intermediates. Tackling - Needs to make sure he stays disciplined with his strikes — he can come in hot or high or tempt referees with his strike zone. But that said, he's an imposing hitter and brings a lot of wood, running his feet through contact and also showing confidence as a wrap up tackler to avoid giving up extra yardage. Zone Coverage Skills - Wouldn't sign off on a lot of deep middle reps but he did serve that role in addition to half field and shallow zones. He's sharp and doesn't get baited into poor positioning as easily as many of his colleagues in the class. His lack of length and explosiveness ultimately cut down on his ball production. Ball Skills - Got a bunch of his production in one shot against TCU (2018). His consistency squeezing the catch point or extending through the body is limited but he's most consistent to buzz underneath throws and take away the football from underneath while sinking. Good body control to adjust to the football as it arrives. Competitive Toughness - He's physical! Like how he punches and collapses point men in swing routes or designed WR screens. Effort as a rally defender isn't elite but he's into the action or if the ball comes his way, you're going to get plus effort to discard blocks and square up tackles. Should be a four down option with special teams role in the NFL. Flexibility - Surprising torso mobility to turn and adjust as a pass defender. He's done well to maximize his tackle radius as well, leaning into challenges as needed. He's not the most fluid isolated in space and transitional quickness in speed turns or click and close aren't prominent qualities — but also not liabilities. Feet/COD - He's fairly controlled here. Not naturally explosive or dynamic to attack and trigger but he does build momentum quickly after the first few strides — and more importantly his shallow adjustments to ball carriers is adequate to stay balanced and not step down too flat. Man Cover Skills - He'll do well to wall off the MOF when covering from the slot but his turn and run speed and upside is only moderate. He's physical at the LOS when you leave him down to press and that can allow him to disrupt timing but generally speaking I like him better in shallow zone and box defender than playing with his back to the ball. Versatility - He was put in a lot of roles in a multiple Cal secondary. Think his football IQ will aid him in carving out a clear role as a depth player. Will be a viable special teams contributor and if you get the right compliment at FS you could see him wrestle his way into a starter role to stay in the intermediate areas of the field. --- Best Trait - Football IQ Worst Trait - Tackling Discipline Best Film - Washington (2019) Worst Film - Utah (2019) Red Flags - None Player Summary - Jaylinn Hawkins is a sharp mid- to late-round prospect who should find success in a depth role at the pro level. There's an opportunity here for him to seize a role as a starter if he's able to work with a rangy free safety to help mask deep layering of coverage and protect the defense vertically. Hawkins is a stout tackler — but he needs to cut down on some of the simple mistakes regarding his tackling. He can be a bit too reckless and give away free yardage with unnecessary roughness.
  10. Had 6 picks in 2018. 3 of which came in a bowl game against TCU.
  11. Think he’s pretty good in zone actually. Reads the QB nicely and has solid closing speed. Only watched 2 of his games (hard to find), and he flashed a little, but I didn’t get a large sample size really so I can’t speak on him with 100% certainty. Didn’t have him ranked that high because of that, but he could be a good player. He should stick.
  12. Tried telling people Curtis Weaver was a little overrated. I mean he got a bulk of his sacks against Portland State, UNLV, and Wyoming. Slowish feet, a little stiff, and meh effort. He got shut down by some trash tackles too. Has upside, but Steven Means ain’t losing snaps to Weaver.
  13. I like him a lot. Had him as a 3rd-4th rounder. He’s incredibly stout versus blockers, and his closing speed is fantastic. Watch his game versus USC. He was the only guy on that defense doing anything. Can rush the passer and play the run off ball. Perfect SLB prototype. You guys will love his hard nosed style of play.
  14. Some guys I’m still pretty high on: - Amik Robertson, CB, Louisiana Tech - Bryce Hall, CB/S, Virginia (could convert to S) - Troy Pride Jr., CB, Notre Dame - Reggie Robinson, CB, Tulsa - John Reid, CB, Penn State - Dane Jackson, CB, Pittsburgh - Kindle Vildor, CB, Ga Southern - Troy Dye, LB, Oregon - Akeem Davis-Gaither, LB, App State - Cameron Brown, LB, Penn State - Mykal Walker, LB, Fresno State - K’Von Wallace, S, Clemson - Kenny Robinson, S, West Virginia - Alohi Gilman, S, Notre Dame - J.R. Reed, S, Georgia - Geno Stone, S, Iowa - Curtis Weaver, DE, Boise State - Khalid Kareem, DE, Notre Dame - Trevis Gipson, DE, Tulsa - Michael Danna, DE, Michigan - James Lynch, DL, Baylor - Leki Fotu, DT, Utah - Jason Strowbridge, DL, North Carolina - Rashard Lawrence, DT, LSU - Tyler Clark, DT, Georgia - Eno Benjamin, RB, Arizona State - Anthony McFarland Jr., RB, Maryland - Joshua Kelley, RB, UCLA - Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR, Michigan - Joe Reed, WR, Virginia - Harrison Bryant, TE, Florida Atlantic - Thaddeus Moss, TE, LSU - Ben Bartch, OT, Saint John’s - Michael Onwenu, G, Michigan
  15. I’m so glad we took him. You can tell he loves the game, and that he’s always going to give it his all. He’s got an incredible motor and aggressive mentality that I think we were sorely lacking on the defensive line (anti-Beasley). Pair that with his quickness and violent hands, and you got a real problem for offensive lineman.
  16. He’s a dynamic playmaker. Think Randall Cobb.
  17. This guy is a beast. Super happy with this one.
  18. Please give me Uche, Baun, or Madubuike.
  19. I would love Burgess. Like you said, he has great range and instincts for the position. Also think he’s great in the box, either as a NB or SS. Think he can basically do it all.
  20. Every CB ever drafted has been burned at some point, but I don’t expect you to understand that. Crazy to think that players coming from college aren’t finished products, isn’t it?
