Who gets drafted higher/lower than expected?

Recommended Posts

Kyler Murray, I think Arizona does take him at 1.

he was named Big Ten LB and defensive POTY

This is irrelevant. He is a monster though. I really like him and have a hard time believing he won't be a huge success in the NFL.

I think that after the combine especially, Greedy Williams will go higher than he should. I think that he's an end of Round 1 guy at best from what he does/has shown on film, but his athleticism, length, etc. will propel him up draft boards.

I was thinking the opposite, I could see Greedy slip into the first few picks of the 2nd, maybe Indy at 34. 

Pittsburgh could easily go Baker or Murphy. Eagles take Jacobs. Chiefs go Baker or Murphy. Not much need for a corner in the 1st.

Someone who wants to play press-man who needs a CB is going to fall in love with Greedy, I'm willing to bet.

I am legitimately concerned that like 5-6 edge guys go in the top 10, to be honest.

Let's hope so it pushes Devin White or Ed Oliver down to us at 11.

It is a pretty stellar EDGE class at the top, though.

I expect him to go in the top 20, although i would not at all be annoyed if he's available for the Rams to pick up. 

I'd say this is pretty much established at this point after that combine. My worst fear is Pittsburgh taking him at 20. 

Depending who's on/off the board I wouldn't mind us taking him at 11.

Running backs in general are going to be drafted much later than they are expected by many pundits I've seen, but honestly still far earlier than the majority of them should be, imo.  For example, Miles Sanders had a good combine... and is probably in consideration as the #2-3 RB of the draft now...  Projections are that he'll go in the 2nd after his combine, but I think he's still on the board in the early third, and think his actual value is a 4th.  Montgomery and Henderson are also guys often projected a full round ahead of where they imo will be drafted, and a full 2 rounds ahead of where they'd be drafted if this RB class wasn't so underwhelming. As a fan of a team that needs RB talent (Chicago), I'm honestly pretty nervous we're going to end up forcing a pick and reaching on a guy, because I'm not sold on any of them atm.

Moving on, WR is a position grouping where people are going to be WAY underdrafted this season, simply because there is pretty absurd depth at the position... Two in particular I'm high on are Andy Isabella and Terry McLaurin... both of whom are imo going to get drafted a full 1.5 rounds or more behind where they should be selected.  Isabella I think eventually comes off the board mid-late 3rd (when he's worth a very late first, or first half of second rounder) and McLaurin I can see being available into the mid 4th, when he's got enough physical tools to be a consideration around the 2nd half of the 2nd round.  My team doesn't even need receivers this year, and I'd still go out of my way to get both, in my ideal draft, just on value alone.

I think McLaurin could go early 2nd and Boykin could go late 2nd

Maxx Crosby could go in the 3rd

Hoping Crosby doesn't and falls to us in the 5th he could be a real 3rd down pass rush specialist with his ability.

Devin White top 5. That’s pretty high for an off ball MLB these days. Even though he is a stud

Higher than expected

Brian Burns - Won't get out of the top 10

N'Keal Harry - Will he get past the Redskins at #15?

Trayvon Mullen - Wouldn't be shocked if he broke into everyone's top 3 cornerbacks

Connor McGovern - Round 2 Lock and wouldn't be surprised to see in the first round

Justice Hill - Weak RB class so someone could reach on him in the 2nd round.

Lower than expected

Cody Ford - He could be in for a slide, 4th or 5th round.

Kelvin Harmon - Draft is loaded at WR and he could be passed over until the 4th or 5th round.

A lot of mocks have Oliver a lot lower than what I would expect. You would think, after seeing Donald tear up the league, teams would be all over an explosive, short,  super productive DT prospect, but it seems many scouts struggle to adapt and can't get the idea of behemoth interior linemen out of their head.
