Dylan Moses & Jonathan Taylor: 2020 Centerpieces

I was bored and headed over to draftnetwork.com to try an updated mock with our current draft position.  You guys should try it.  It’s a blast.  Here are my shot playing armchair GM

 

•  1st: Dylan Moses is an absolute animal.  Runs a 4.46 40 at 240 lbs.  All Pro talent. Needs some work in man coverage, but is elite in zone.  He also blitzes downhill like shot from a cannon. Moves Debo over to play to his strengths.  A LB corp of Moses, Debo & Foye is special.  Each of them are sideline to sideline erasers
 


•  2nd: Jonathan Taylor:  averaged 2,000 yards per season for three years.  Runs a 4.42 40 at 5’11 and 220 lbs.  

 

•  2nd:  Jaylon Johnson:  if he is still on the board here you can’t pass him up.  Leader of a great Utah defense.  Long, athletic with incredible ball skills.  Allowed just 9 completions and 112 yards in conference play this year.

•  3rd:  Jonathan Greenard - The best value in my draft is Greenard.  A wrist injury in 2018 may cause his stock to fall, but he was dominant for Florida.  Despite missing a month this year he had 16 TFL, 9 sacks and 41 QB pressures.  He also sets a fierce edge and dominates in the run game.

 

•  4th:  Richard LeCounte III:  not sure he makes it past the 3rd round, but he is a solid Rico replacement if we need to clear CAP.  He is projected to go 10th overall in 2021 draft so this is great value

•  5th:  JR Reed - Amongst the most undervalued players coming.  He is a leader and a bruiser in the box.  Great Neal replacement


•  6th:  AJ Dillon   He isn’t a natural runner, but the dude is simply so much fun to watch.  The first 2 minutes of his highlight package are epic

I love the idea of linebacker with first pick, not sure if we go running back that high but the rest of that would be amazing. SEC heavy I love it 

Taylor is just special.  But you’re right, this is an extremely deep RB class.  We could get Harris or Edwards-Elaine in the 3rd round

Not interested in a RB in the 2nd personally. And at LB Clemson’s Isaiah Simmons is a future All Pro. He is better than all LBs in the nation 

Simmons will be gone.  But Moses was the better prospect 4 months ago.  It’s just a matter of if he is fully recovered.  
 

I can agree a running back may not be ideal in the second round.  Edwards-Helaire in the 3rd is a solid option.  Maybe then we grab Marvin Wilson, DT, with our first 2nd round pick.  That dude reminds me of Grady

The best ability is availability. 4 months ago Tua was a better QB prospect than Joe Burrow. Moses is always hurt. He has been hurt 2 seasons out of 3. Some guys bodies can’t take the pounding. I love Edwards-Helaire in the 3rd. Love Marvin Wilson too. Although I’m partial to Kinlaw but he probably won’t be available when we pick in the 1st

A broken foot doesn’t concern me very much.  Ligaments are the concern.  I wouldn’t call him injury prone just yet

I like Taylor,  but he's got a ton of miles with the Wisconsin offense, and if you look at past Wisconsin running backs,  there have been very few that have done anything in the league because of the high miles. 

Moses to me (as an Alabama fan) isn't anything super special.  Honestly,  I see him as JAG, but one of the better players on a less than stellar Alabama defense. 

I wouldn't use our first on either of these two,  but maybe our second second round pick on one.

Me I don't care about the miles because after his rookie contract is up we should let him walk anyway. No more high priced RBs. Use em while they're young and move on. Taylor is Turner reincarnated though. I want to see him dragging bodies for us.

Yeah... but I think Taylor has a little more burst. 

 

Still a lot of carries already.

I think they're close to the same. I think Taylor is the more agile runner and probably better receiving chops, but Tuner was just as fast in his prime. He was a 4.4 guy too. It is a lot of carries, but he earned them. Use him for 4 years and let some other team deal with the decline. He's not even 21 years old yet.
