Really quick.  We re-structure Ryan and Levitre and Re-sign Poe.  We also drop Loilolo.  

This draft is designed to lock down one starter, a return specialist and a whole lot of guys that will step into starting roles within two seasons.  

Draft:

1.  Isaiah Wynn, OG (UGA), 6-2, 300lb.  Hey, if value and need falls into you lap, you don't hesitate.  Wynn is ready to step into the starting role right now.  He supplants Schweitzer and is a foundation player for a decade.  Matt Ryan feels better.  

2. Josh Jackson, CB, (Iowa), 6-1, 192lb.  A big, gifted CB with ball hawking skills.  He falls this low because he simply has not played much.  He will need a season to get "seasoned."  I like him as a possible replacement for either starter, if and when we need some cap relief.   

3.  Ade Aruna, DE (Tulane), 6-4, 265lb.  Takk developed this season.  Beasley will be coming back to his pass rushing role....I am very optimistic.  Aruna is a physical specimen with great desire.  He needs a lot of training and I think Coach Bryant will love having this guy to develop.  In 2019, we should have a pretty nasty group of pass rushers wreaking havoc.   

4.  Foley Fatukasi, DT (U of Conn), 6-4, 315lb.  He is big man with some athleticism.  I like him as a rotational DT that can give our starters some much-needed rest.  

6.  Braxton Berrios, WR (U of Miami), 5-9, 186lb.  He is simply a tough SOB that catches the ball.  His route running is refined and under control.  He is an obvious comparison to Edelman and Amendola.  He also returns kicks.

7a.  Martez Carter, RB, (Grambling State), 5-7, 205lb.  He has speed and agility.  He also has great vision and is a reliable receiver.  

7b.  Ryan Izzo, TE, (FSU), 6-5, 250lb.  He is a blocking TE with hands that are already better than Toilolo.

Aruna in this draft takes the slot often taken by Duke Ejiofor. Whatever we may think of Quinn's game management or selection of an offensive coordinator, we can trust him to make a good choice between the Dukes and Acunas. Of the draft. The main thing most everybody agrees on is that we need a third young pass rusher to take our pass rush to a higher level.

Izzo is supposed to replace Lolo?? Really? 

He is a good blocker and has better ball skills.  Toilolo is expensive for a guy that does not provide much beyond blocking.  Most of his receptions come to him when the defense completely neglects him.  To me, he is a mediocre talent that can be replaced by a 7th round blocking TE.

Not bad, Would like to get a taller Receiver in an earlier round. Really like the Carter and the Wynn picks. I suppose your tackle pick would be dependent on weather Poe stays or not ?

Yeah, I thought about that, but I think we will be dipping into WR pools in subsequent drafts.

Think on offense a number of these guys were not used specific to his skill set. I think this includes Toilolo. Just me specifically, holding judement as far as skill position, seems weird to acknowledge but I can't be shore anybody needs replacement judging by how we under executed. Execution has nothing to do with your skill set, that's coaching and preparation.

I like Lolo as a role player but that's all he is and he can and should be replaced. He has been the same thing for 5 years. Sark all of a sudden hasn't  broken him.

Okay, in football either your playing a role, your the QB, or your somebody like Julio. The problem we had is those players strengths (roles) weren't utilized. Wasn't just him, Coleman wasn't utilized correctly (his role), Gabrielle wasn't used correctly (his role). Dude if your getting rid of guys because they are role players you would have to cut probably 80 to 85% of our roster. Not just us, that's every team, aside from QBs and unstoppable freaks like Julio, the rest of the roster are role players.

Not saying he's bad because he is just a role player, but he can be replaced probably for better at the same or lower price tag. I agree alot of players weren't utilized correctly. Just don't think he should be safe because of that reason. If we look at TE as a weakness I think he's the one on the chopping block.

Value vs cost is what I'm thinking he means.. If you can get another player at less cost and more talent, why not ?
