  1. Talk about destroying angles. I'd never seen anything like Johnson -- I was shocked he fell so far that year, even coming from a small school. I don't think Etienne is as fast as Johnson, but I think he's probably a better developed player.
  2. Hopkins and Breeland could be nice move pieces. But, yeah, otherwise this is just an abysmal year. Let's hope some relative unknowns step it up.
  3. Early on, I'm a big fan of Weaver, Willekes, Okwara, Coe, and Coleman at EDGE. On the interior, I'm watching Leki Fotu with some interest as a mid-late rounder with NT potential. Can't wait for the season to get rolling!
  4. Paulson Abedo interests me. It's still early, so I'll probably update with a list in a few weeks.
  5. Bookmarked. Already working on next year. Thanks for all your efforts.
  6. Exactly what I did, but I almost went with Little first. I'm strongly considering OL early. Too many questions after Brown's departure, Wynn's injury, Cannon's age and injuries, Thuney's contract next year, lack of a swing tackle, etc. AJ Brown could feast over the middle, though. If we could snag him here, then I'd trade up for Butler, which would give us a big slot and a prototypical X. Great potential for them to develop behind Edelman and Gordon/Thomas, respectively (although Edelman is more of a Z than a pure slot). Realistically, we'll probably try to trade down and push picks into next year so we had ammo to go up and get a QB in 2020. I like a ton of the 2nd round DB and WR talent, so there's a lot of value there if we miss out on a top DL or TE, which would be ideal at this spot if available -- imagine Dexter Lawrence on that line, or Noah Fant running the seam? Exciting stuff!
  7. Fant Oliver Samuel JJAW Harry (close for me; different roles as I see it) Morgan McLaurin
  8. McLaurin is over 6' and nearly 210. I don't think he's that small. 4.35 vs 4.31 is a pretty slim margin. I like Isabella, but McLaurin is a 4 down, top 40 player for me with cleaner routes and extensive special teams experience.
  9. This one is tough for me. I like this safety class, all for different reasons; their roles and responsibilities are pretty varied and I could see 7 or 8 of them having solid careers. Lots of strong second rounders for me. I hate choosing between some of these players. CGJ Abram Thornhill Mullen Oruwariye Love Baker Most of those were really close. Difficult list.
  10. Jackson is more refined right now, but Omenihu is more versatile and tested as a better athlete. Year one, Jackson; year two, Omenihu. Now if it's a matter of a top 50 pick vs top 100 pick, Jackson all the way. But what do I know.
  11. I like this as a thought experiment. Brailford -- better athlete and no open court case (https://www.laramieboomerang.com/news/local_news/granderson-charges-still-pending-as-draft-approaches/article_c3aa773c-3420-5a2e-b8e2-ba7f02027e4e.html) Jackson -- showed ability to bend last season, showed ability to anchor against the run this season, better overall stats in fewer games without the benefit of monster teammates Crosby -- this is a tight one; didn't like Ximines as well against the run, but liked better against the pass (although neither one has film that really excites me, but Crosby seems to have more upside and faced better competition) Allen -- in three years, Omen will probably be better, but Allen is a solid DL who can play base end and then kick inside to 3-tech; he's more advanced and gives you quality snaps right from the get go, although he may never progress much farther than good rotational player Hollins -- like his athleticism and ability to play in space; he could be a Collins, KVN, or Barr type LB in the right system
  12. They're my ideal trade partner if the Patriots want to move up (32 + 73 seems like a good starting point). 4 picks vs 12 picks. Good match. Otherwise, I've heard they like CGJ and Thornhill, but we'll see.
  13. Interesting choice not to run the 40. I don't think it matters since he holds the all time record for the 60 at Ohio State. Great numbers for him all around.
  14. Gary has much better technique and polish against the run, though. I'll bet he sees far more snaps during the season, even if Burns gets some flashy sacks as a sub rusher. I agree with @jrry32 regarding Burns. He's already started to lose weight (down several pounds at pro day vs Combine), and I didn't see a player who can win if his fast first step is countered.
  15. I was a bit surprised that he didn't hit three feet, but it's not awful, either. He clearly shows jump ball prowess on tape. I think he's the best contested catch specialist in the draft.
