Sheldon Cooper Posted October 31, 2014 Share Posted October 31, 2014 We know we are picking in the top 10, maybe top 5. A look at the current percieved 10 best prospects.1-Leonard Williams DE/DTHonestly I think his production can be found in every rd of the draft. I do not want him in the top 10.2-Marcus Mariota QBI know we dont need a QB but I think this guy is going to be a franchise QB in the NFL. He is worth a top 10 pick.3-Cedric Ogbuehi OTI have not even looked at him one time since we have a LT from last years top 6 pick and RT is not something you draft in the top 10. 4-Vic Beasley OLB 3-4I know he will get Von Miller comparisons taken at this part of the draft but I dont see Beasley as half the player Miller is. TFL and sacks are comparable in jr sr years. Vic is 10 lbs lighter than Von though and does not impact the run the same IMO. I like his speed and strength for his size but I am concerned that someone will draft him expecting Von Miller and not get that. 5-Brandon Sherf OTThis dude is a beast run blocking. He is not the pass protector that Jake is and again I would rather get a left hand dominant RT in rd 2.6-Jamies Winston QBLike Big Ben I think he will be a good QB along with whatever other comparisons you may draw. We dont need QB but he would not be my choice anyway.7-Amari Cooper WRGood possesion reciever, but too many drops and he is nothing special catching the deep ball. Best reciever in this class but top 10 is too soon for him. 8-Randy Gregory DELong but lean. And his production is pedestrian in the big ten no less. I could have a change of heart but for now I have doubts that do not belong in the top 10. 9-Andrus Peat OTNot a lot of push in run game, gets pushed back into QB too much vs pass. He doesnt hit target on the second level like a top 10 tackle should. Again we dont need a RT #1 but that is the value in this draft. I just like Tyrus Thompson better than these guys in rd 2 anyway. The gamble is the run on OT's that happens in rd 1 every year. 10-Todd Gurley RBOther than Mariotta, this is the one top ten talent I have few reservations about. I love how he gets the corner with speed. I love him catching the ball and getting in the open field where his stiff arm is lethal and effortless. He will even leap over diving tackles. He can go over the top at the goal line. My lone concern with Gurley is tough yards in tight spaces. He can be had if you get him before he gets started. He is a little too easy to go down for a feature back too. I want to see some Eddie Lacy in him to ease these concerns. He is a home run hitter when its blocked up for him and that may be enough. The NFL is tight places to get through up the middle and that is my concern and where I want to see him be special. Everything else is Adrian Peterson like.People flip out when I say Marcus Mariota is the safest pick in the top 10. That is my opinion. If we pick 6 or 7 I have no problem with Gurley so long as I see some tough yds between the tackles. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
