As you all should know by now, I'm an address the trenches kind of guy. A strong OL/DL can mask issues elsewhere. Playing in the trenches is also the most grueling so having quality depth is key IMHO. We got Cordy Glenn but he hasn't played 16 games in 2 years. If he goes down, our season is toast unless...
1.21 Isaiah Wynn, OT/G, Georgia
We need a starter at RT, and Isaiah Wynn has the ablity to come right in and start IMO. There aren't a lot of OT prospects who can help us, which is why I'm addressing it in round 1. When looking at impact/need, the best thing that can happen to this team is that we address the trenches in the draft.
2.46 James Daniels, OC, Iowa
Center was always our biggest need and with Bodine gone, we'll finally address it. Daniels comp seems to be Rodney Hudson, who went 2.55, so I'm hoping he'll still be available at 2.46. If not Billy Price or Mason Cole are adequate picks as well. One of those 3 should be available, which is why I don't address Center in the 1st round.
3.77 James Looney, DL, California
He fits the mold of an oversized DE/undersized DT that we like to rotate in. Looney had the second best SPARQ score of all DL in the draft, and is a disruptive force which we need behind Geno. Before you dismiss this pick, take a look at this video and tell me we don't need someone that can penetrate the backfield like Looney: https://youtu.be/qlITvRiRRdA
3.100 Antonio Callaway, WR, Florida
1st round talent that drops to the 3rd round due to character issues. He didn't play in 2017 due to suspension but the guy is a baller. Compared to Antonio Brown by some, this guy can get it done on the field. We usually take at least one player in this architype.
4.112 Shaquem Griffin, OLB, Central Florida
To those addressing LB early in their mocks, there's plenty of quality LBs in the mid-rounds. Example #1
5.151 Mike McCray, OLB, Michigan
5.158 Terrell Edmunds, S, Virginia Tech
I don't see safety has big of a need as others, but if Edmunds drops to the 5th which I could see he would be a good pickup here.
5.170 Ian Thomas, TE, Indiana
He's an athletic TE. Good to have some competition in camp
7.249 Jacob Pugh, OLB, Florida State
7.252 Scott Quessenberry, OC/G, California
7.253 Dane Cruikshank, CB/S, Arizona
