Draft Comparisons

Adderley is a CB/S that's got the speed for the back half and CB, but isn't disciplined/reliable and might be better utilized at SS, nearly identical to how Sean Davis was viewed. I think either could play deep as well. Marcus Williams also comes to mind but I think Williams was a more reliable last line guy.

Jarrett was a smaller than ideal DT with the athleticism of a LB and a huge motor.

Simmons was dominant because he's a swelled up DE playing inside. A freak athlete at that size. Not because he was technically sound, or core strong. I think he's a 5 that needs to be in a attacking 34 scheme.

Adderley is either a FS or a CB. Playing him at SS is a waste of his talent. Sean Davis isn't nearly the playmaker or cover talent that Adderley is. Adderley can be fooled by play fakes, but he's not the technical mess that Davis was. Davis was a raw, athletic guy who hit hard, but was also prone to a ton of missed tackles and mistakes on the back-end. That's not at all Adderley.

Grady Jarrett was athletic for his size, but he was known for being an undersized nose who was an absolute ox and sneaky athletic. The guy didn't come close to having the athleticism of a LB. Oliver doesn't have the power game that characterized Jarrett. They're just not that comparable.

Simmons is country strong, dude. He's freakishly strong for his size. There's a reason people have compared him to Suh. He's nothing like Adrian Clayborn.

Simmons is more explosive and quick than he is powerful. There's natural strength there for sure, since when he commonly gets too tall he's not completely rooted out every time, but his game is quickness not power. If he's expected to sit in there and be stout it's not going to happen.

Jarrett's weakness was his size and his ability to consistently be stout. He would've gone a lot higher otherwise. His game as an undersized DT has always been about explosive movement and hustle.

Fair enough on Adderley. Without any film against better talent it's a hard projection imo.

Well he’s not breaking any tackles, but he can sure catch the ball.

I don't really like it.  Even tacking on a "faster" Kyle Rudolph, Fant is just a completely different sort of Athlete all around.

I'd almost swing in the opposite direction and say Kaden Smith is probably a more apt "Kyle Rudolph" type projection.

Darnell Savage and Budda Baker

I kinda wanna draft Savage but neither seem like they would be utilized to their potential as a free safety.

A lot of similarities for me as well too, Savage maybe better at playing down hill where Baker may be a little better at the back pedaling portion of a safety’s game.

I've got a softball to lob up, that i'm surprised not to have seen in this thread yet:

Emanuel Hall = Mike Wallace.

 

I don't know that he'll be as successful as Wallace has been, landing in the right offenses to take advantage of his skillset.  But if Hall is going to find a way in the league, it's going to be following in pretty much that exact mold just burning downfield and hopefully holding onto the football when it arrives.  Lid-lifting Nines for days sort of specialist.  Makes him kinda hard for me to place because if he does end up as successful at it as Wallace, he's worth something.  But a "poor man's Wallace" is an infuriating player who isn't worth much imo.  Fine line with such a feast/famine style specialist.

Pittsburgh Nate Washington if he lands in a not so great situation. Pittsburgh Mike Wallace if he lands in an ideal spot.

I posted this in the 49ers forum and the 3 yrs from now thread. I've been on this for a while now.
