MOSteelers56 Posted April 9, 2019 Share Posted April 9, 2019 1st- Clelin Ferrell- Edge - I think he will immediately improve our rotation in the front 7. He can rotate with Dupree and Watt on the Edge and he can put his hand in the dirt in pass rush situations in subpackages. He'll improve his game and take over for Bud next year. 2nd- Justin Layne- CB - I think he might turn into the best CB in the draft. He's big and athletic. He'll immediately be our best jump ball defender and will be waiting in the wings to replace Haden when he leaves. He will turn into what Burns should have. 3rd- Darnell Savage- FS/CB - I think this dude comes in and improves our subpackage game. He's a hitter and takes the ball away. He can rotate around at nickel and FS. He'll step in and play kind of a hybrid FS/Slot/$LB. I see Savage as a Honey Badger type and will greatly improve our defense. 3rd- Mecole Hardman- WR - Hardman is a straight burner. He's not huge but he makes up for that with speed in spades. He provides something we don't have, and that is speed in the slot. I think he plays fairly limited snaps his rookie year while he learns to become a better route runner and how to beat jams. We have some guys who will be ahead of him on the depth chart so we can bring him along slowly. I think we carry 6 WRs this year with Switzer being our 6th and return man. 4th- Foster Moreau- TE - He's a big tough kid that is more athletic than given credit for. I think he ends up being a steal in the 4th. I see him being a little like George Kittle coming out. Known as a blocker but is a little underutilized in college. I think he steps in as our #2 and becomes a much better pro than he was in college. 5th- Bobby Okereke- ILB - He is a heady, athletic guy. I think he replaces LJ Fort's ST role his rookie year. Eventually he might become a MACK. 6th- Isaiah Buggs- DL - Give Dunbar another former protege to work with. Maybe he develops into Alualu's replacement. 6th- David Sills- WR - We apparently love the dude. He doesn't really do it for me. He's a big body guy, but I'm not sure he's got the hands to overcome his lack of athleticism. 6th- Trevon Wesco- TE - This guy is a mauler. He will make the team and replace Grimble. He's a big, nasty blocker that can catch the ball every now and then, but doesn't need the ball thrown his way a lot. He will be a core ST guy/move blocker. I think he's a guy that can really help a team. 7th- Garrett Brumfield- IOL - He's a smallish interior O-lineman. Maybe he can develop into a backup one day.
