OC Joe Bitonio 

OG Kevin Zeitler

OG TJ Lang

OLB Jamie Collins

Key F.A.:


Key F.A. Lost:

QB Brock Osweiler

QB Josh McCown


WR Terrelle Pryor

WR Andrew Hawkins

The Team: We don't need no stinking Quarterbacks.

The Player: Chubb is the man. He is a freak of nature who turns the corner on OT's like a runaway train going around a bend, unless it falls it is hitting everything in sight.

The Reason: They took a passrusher instead of QB with the 1st pick in the Draft last year. So why not do it again! They could have the bestest pair of edgerushers ever.

Second Choice: Josh Rosen QB



Defense: 4-3

*Saquon Barkley

RB Penn ST

5-11, 223, #26, (U) 4.33, 38" Vert, 10'10" Broad,

QB Geno Smith

OG Jerry Jones

TE Matt LaCosse 

DE Jason Pierre-Paul

OLB Mark Herzlich

ILB Keenan Robinson

LS Zak DeOssie

Key F.A.:


Key F.A. Lost:

CB Coty Sensabaugh

DT Jonathon Hankins

The Team: Giants took a QB in last years Draft. SO the question here is do they think Davis Webb is the answer to replace Eli.

The Player: Barkley is a phenomenal talent. He is not just an elite athlete, he has all the skills, intangibles, and instincts that make a great RB.

The Reason: If they don't take a QB than they have to take a weapon who can help Webb in years to come.

Second Choice: Sam Darnold QB



Defense: 3-4

*Josh Rosen


6-4, 220, #3!


2017 Picks:

1 (20) Garett Bolles, OLT Utah
2 (51) DeMarcus Walker, DE FLA ST
3 Carlos Henderson WR Louisiana T
3 (101) Brendan Langley, CB, Lamar
5 (145) Jake Butt, TE, Michigan
5 (172) Isaiah McKenzie, WR, Georgia

2016 Picks:

1 (26) Paxton Lynch, QB Memphis
2 Adam Gotsis, DT, Georgia Tech
3 (98) Justin Simmons, DB, BC
4 (136) Devontae Booker, RB, Utah
5 Connor McGovern, G, Missouri
6-176 Andy Janovich FB Nebraska
6 (219) Will Parks, S, Arizona
7 (228) Riley Dixon, P, Syracuse

Key F.A. Signed:

Malik Watson OL

Ron Leary OG

DT Domata Peko

NT Zach Kerr (R)

Key F.A.:


Key F.A. Lost:

Russell Okung OLT

OLB DeMarcus Ware

CB Kayvon Webster

The Team: I am starting to believe that Darnold will stay in school. Though is tough to believe that he can pass up that Lottery ticket. You'd like all kids to stay in school, but one injury can cost them Millions that they never had or ever see again. If Darnold stays Rosen goes first. 

The Player: Rosen is tough prospect for me. I don't think he was good after he was hit in his first couple seasons. However, he has been very good at getting up after getting hit, and throwing the next pass accurately this season. He has also shown a knack for making the big play in the clutch this season.

The Reason: Seriously! Have you seen their QBs play?

Second Choice: Sam Darnold QB



Defense: 3-4

*Harold Landry


6-3, 250, #7


2017 Picks:

1 (15) Malik Hooker, FS, Ohio State
2 (46) Quincy Wilson, CB, Florida
3 (80) Tarell Basham, DE/OLB Ohio

4 (143) Marlon Mack, RB, S. Florida
4(144) Grover Stewart DL Albany Ga.
5 (158) Nate Hairston, CB, Temple
5 (161) Anthony Walker, LB, Northwestern

2016 Picks:

1 (18) Ryan Kelly, C, Alabama
2 (57)  T.J. Green, S, Clemson

4 (116) Hassan Ridgeway, DT, Texas
4 (125) (from Green Bay) Antonio Morrison, OLB, Florida
5 (155) Joe Haeg, North Dakota State

FS Darius Butler

Key F.A.:


Key F.A. Lost:

TE Dwayne Allen

DT Zach Kerr (R)

SS Mike Adams

The Team: They are still one of the worst run teams in the NFL. 

The Player: Laundry is a great football player. He has that knack for running past the OT's outside shoulder with incomparable consistency. He has been playing injured all season, but when he got on the field he just kept hitting the QB. 

The Reason: I think they reach for a WR or OG here, or just go top edge rusher. 

Second Choice: Courtland Sutton WR or Quenton Nelson OG



Defense: 3-4

*Brice Love

RB Stanford 

6', 202, #5, 


2017 Picks:

Key F.A. Signed:

QB Brian Hoyer 

FB Kyle Juszczyk

WR Pierre Garcon

WR DeAndre Carter

OG Jeremy Zuttah

DT Earl Mitchell

ILB Malcolm Smith

DB Waun Williams

Key F.A.:


Key F.A. Lost:

Colin Kaepernick QB

WR Torrey Smith

The Team: With Jimmy-G at QB the Niners will win more games than they should, now that they have a QB. The Pats will not have pick 33 or 34, and it could go as low as pick 37. 

The Player: Love is a gilder on the field. When he heads outside he looks like he is ice skating outside, and then you notice that he beat three defenders who had angles on him to the sideline. Elite speed. Plus, he has been playing injured. He was getting killed against Cal. Then I saw him limping off the field, with his ripped up ankle, and wondered how he is even playing. Then he came out in the 2nd half, and run for a 57-yard TD run in the 3rd. Elite speed, smarts, instincts, and toughness. Plus, he was still great picking up blitzers in Pass Pro against Cal. Plug and play superstar.

The Reason: They have to get some weapons for Jimmy-G. They have to take their top rated offensive weapon here. 

Second Choice: Calvin Ridley WR



Defense: 3-4

*Minkah Fitzpatrick- 

DB Alabama

CB Prince Amukamara

Key F.A.: 

Key F.A. Lost:

QB Jay Cutler 

QB Brian Hoyer

WR Alshon Jeffery

The Team: They need help all over the field. They need to start building the defense.

The Player: Fitzpatrick is a phenomenal leader and football player. He can play Safety and Corner. I think he can step into the NFL and be a top Corner. Plus, if he struggles he could be an All-Pro Safety. 

The Reason: Best player available pick. 

Second Choice: Derwin James Safety



Defense: 3-4

Josh Allen

QB, Wyoming

OLB Jarvis Jones

Key F.A.:


Key F.A. Lost:

DE Calais Campbell

OLB Alex Okafor

SS Tony Jefferson

CB Marcus Cooper

The Team: They need a reboot at QB. Palmer is done.

The Player: Allen is a phenomenal athlete. He also has a great gun on the run. He will unleash some wild throws sometimes. He is not Wentz, but he can take a beating and keep on ticking. 

The Reason: They can replace an old QB named Carson with a young QB named Carson.

Second Choice: Derwin James Safety



Defense: 4-3

Key F.A.:  


Key F.A. Lost:

OG Kevin Zeitler
OLT Andrew Whitworth

DT Domata Peko

The Team: The lack of discipline has finally caught up with the Bengals. They need to draft character as well as talent.

The Player: James is a do it all Safety. He can play Cover One and Cover Two like a Free Safety. He can walk up into the box and stop the run like a Strong Safety. And he can line up on the line like a linebacker, and make plays at the line or blitzing into the backfield.

The Reason: Best player available.

Second Choice: Connor Williams OL

The Team: When you don't address your needs in the Draft than you get worse the next year. It is amazing to me that GMs and Coaches don't understand that Drafts are about team building. They only addressed five of their top eleven needs in last years Draft.

The Player: Darnold says he is staying in, and I believe him. He has trouble finding his third option. He looks at his first two options, and when they aren't open he instantly starts running around the pocket with amazing consistency. But he doesn't just take off. he is amazing at finding his third or fourth option while running around the pocket (usually to his right), while then trying to find some space to throw. 

The Reason: The Jets are so desperate for a reboot that they will select Darnold even if he doesn't declare. 

Second Choice: Connor Williams OL

ILB Manti Te’o

The Team: Sooner is better than later to take a young QB, and start developing him behind Rivers. Getting Jackson a year or two in their system would be a great boon for a running QB like Jackson, who has to learn to trust his arm in the pocket more than his feet.  

The Player: Jackson is a great unique talent. He is the best running QB in this Draft, and I see that mostly as a negative. He was the best player in college football over the past two seasons. But what makes him unique is what made Vick unique. While he is an elite runner with the ball in his hands, he is also a very skilled passer who can win a game with his arm. I think Darnold is the most clutch thrower in this Draft, but you cannot really say that he is more clutch than Jackson.

The Reason: Chargers can take Jackson here and let him sit on the bench behind Rivers for a year. And if they are lucky they can afford to play Rivers for two more years, as they try to convert Jackson into a pocket passer. But knowing them they will screw it up. Worse ownership in the NFL 

Second Choice: Connor Williams OLT

Key F.A. Lost:

RB Latavius Murray

TE Mychal Rivera

ILB Malcolm Smith

CB DJ Hayden

The Team: They need some help in the middle. They have some great edgerushers that are struggling because they get no inside push. 

The Player: Wilkins is the real deal. He plays a lot of Nose Tackle, when I don't think he is a nose tackle. I don't like the way they use him in their two-gap system. I think he will explode in the NFL in a one-gap system. But he does a great job stacking and shedding, and finding the ball right in the middle of the line. He is also much better at bursting up the middle and hurting the QB than Hurst.

The Reason: Some think Hurst is a better prospect than Wilkins. But Wilkins is better at finding the QB, the RB, and the ball. Hurst has to show he can find the ball better. 

Second Choice: Maurice Hurst DT
