Early Prediction: First Overall Pick?

Like I understand the thought process of wanting to protect Trevor Lawrence but RT #1 overall is just a terrible value when you can get a solid veteran RT for fairly cheap in free agency or later in the draft. I think Jacksonville should look to move the pick so they can address multiple needs. I'd call Philadelphia and ask them if they'd be interested in swapping #1/#33 for #15/#16/#19.

Didn't think Neal played very well against Georgia either, not terrible like others on the Bama line but not anywhere near what a can't miss 1# should play like. Body of work he is still top 5 but if Hutch is dinged by one game, so should be Neal

I think it's going to be Neal. Protecting your QB is necessary, even at the right side. Pass rushers line up all over now, due to match-ups and athleticism. RTs are becoming just as important as LTs, IMO. 

I think Thibodeaux, Hutchinson and Hamilton are better players, however.

You can find an average starting RT pretty easily in free agency or later in the draft. Premium pass rushers are one of the hardest things to find in the NFL.

I don't see it. I think he's better in all aspects. 

That might be true. My greater point is that they have similar styles. I wonder if a guy like Hutchinson having a different game might make a difference.

Can you elaborate on this? I'm curious.

Josh Allen coming out was a super athlete who could do a bit of everything, including dropping into coverage. Wasn't the strongest or most physical EDGE, though. He's a good player who still has a lot of potential. I'd just say his game is more finesse. I think Thibodeaux is a better version of that. I don't want that to sound like I'm saying Thibodeaux doesn't have heavy hands or power, but I see him as more finesse than Hutchinson is. I think stylistically, Hutchinson is more of a contrast to Josh Allen. If you're looking for a very physical guy to put across the field from Allen, I think Hutchinson better fits that mold. But that may not necessarily be what Jacksonville wants.

Oh I see what you’re saying now. I totally forgot jax has the first pick. Yeah if you want the higher floor physical guy take Hutchinson. Thibs is more bendy pass rusher type with more athletic upside, though he’s no slouch in the strength department himself.

We were using Chaisson opposite of Allen as a Sam in base so based on that we should be looking more thibs but ultimately it's still unknown if we stay a 3-4 or go 4-3. 

If we go 4-3 I can see hutch being a slightly better fit

Wonder whether Hamilton could be in play 1#. Safety is extremely important in modern NFL, Jags do have a decent pass rush compared to the rest of their team. Probably not be he is outstanding player 

There's 0 chance Hamilton goes 1.  It's likely gonna be a Lineman or edge.

I want Neal. They need to do everything possible this off-season to give Lawrence the best chance to succeed. Cam Robinson is a FA, Andrew Norwell is a FA, Brandon Linder is always banged up, Jawaan Taylor stinks. 
 

Protect him and get him weapons.
