They should go TE all purpose back with both 3rds.

RB and TE are the two things on my wish list.

If Thompson or another good safety falls though...

Hopefully Monty comes to us in the 3rd. He is someone I really want. 

I know we didn't exactly fleece the Raiders with the trade if anything it was fair value but I expected to pay more

We won the trade on the draft trade value charts.

Considering who we traded up for too...idk, I feel like we won handily.

Yeah value wise this was great. If Taylor's medical was fine...no brainer.

Putting Taylor's 2018 college film to the computer vision test, the first thing that jumps out is that he kept defenders at least five feet from his quarterback on passing snaps at the second-highest rate among FBS tackles. On third down and more than 6 yards to go (one way to select for more "obvious" passing downs), he ranked first in this metric. Measuring his ability to maintain leverage on rushing plays on first down (preventing a defender from stopping the gain of rushers), Taylor ranked third among FBS tackles.

Basically feels like the draft where we jumped up a bit to grab Cam Robinson at the top of the 2nd.  Hopefully this goes as well as that has looked at times.

 

Really badly needed to get ourselves a starting RT option, and this feels like a much more appropriate place to grab Taylor.  The Taylor at #7 hype was crazy to me.  #35 though...that's solid.

Kinda sounds like one of these gambles where he could end up with knee (and back?) issues that become more chronic eventually.  But if he's healthy and generally good to go for 4-5 years...ehhh...that's still a really good value if he plays well.

 

Certainly fits the mentality they apparently want to get back to.  Though it'll be interesting to see how that approach jives with Flip and BDN.
