Key F.A. Lost:

UC Weston Richburg 

LB Devon Kennard 

OG Justin Pugh 

The Team: They found their future QB and OLT. Now they have to get their old beat up QB some weapons. Nothing helps a QB more than a dangerous RB who the defense has to respect. Plus, Jones and Darnold can help each other out on the East Coast translating to the NFL. 

The Player: Jones the II is a pure speed back with some top elusiveness outside and on the second level. "A nightmare for defensive coordinators to prepare for," Texas HC Tom Herman said. "A special player who is right up there with the best running backs in the nation." He is Jamaal Charles all over again.

He has really grown and developed in his three years at USC. "I'm so proud of Ro-Jo," Clay Helton said. "Everybody knows he's a great runner. But when you really look at where he is from day one when he started at USC to where he is now, he's become a better pass-catcher out of the back field. He's becoming a better 3rd-down pass-protection guy. He's really becoming a more complete player, and an every-down player. When he first came, he was a kid that you knew you could hand the ball to. Now he can go play 60-70 plays in a game, and you know he can function, and function extremely well." Freakishly strong for a smaller back.
He ran through tackles this season more than ever before. "He's got horse legs," USC RB Stephen Carr said. "It's going to take a couple of body shots to take him down." He can make you miss in a flash.

Runs behinds his eyes as well as anyone, and is great at reading blocks. "He reminded me of Jamaal Charles of the Kansas City Chiefs. That type of skill set," Martin said. "Just a guy who runs and it’s easy for him. It doesn’t look like he’s working hard and he’s running by everyone." Plus, he was the best home run hitter in the FBS.
He has the speed that every team needs. "He's got great potential," said an NFC scout. "He's what you want: dynamic." Flash, bang, and he is gone. 

He can score from any spot on the field. "I haven’t seen him get run down yet," Martin said. "No one has run him down from behind. Unless a guy has a good angle on him, I don’t think anyone is going to catch him. It’s good to have a home run hitter who can do that." But he also can get the tough yard or two inside.
Explosive bursts on the second level. "Once he sees a hole and he hits it," his teammate Aca'Cedric Ware said. "There's no catching him." He can change an Offense and a game with one well blocked lane.

The Team: They Colts have to take some pressure and hits off of Luck. It starts with a legit talent at OLT.

The Player4/08 Chuks Okorafor: Moving Backwards Part VI.

The Reason: The owner said that they need a big RB to help Luck be all that he can be. "You put [Luck] on that field heeled up, and all the sudden you put an Edgerrin James type of player, maybe, with that bigger, faster, stronger, and let this man continue the job that he’s already begun to do," Irsay said. "This is going to be a special place to be, and a special place to play." Jones also does a lot to help a bad O-line look good.

Their QB has taken a beating the past couple of years, and they have refused to help protect him. That has to stop.

The Team: Ever one knows the Colts have to get multiple OLs to help their O-line. 

The Player: Price can slide over and shove the DT slanting into him until he almost knock him over. Great balance and heavy hands in pass pro. He can move forward to the second level and shove the LB almost off his feet. When he plays with his arms extended he is very tough to beat.
He can use his nice quick feet to shuffle sideways and use his long arms to stuff the rusher. Great strength, to hit and turn the DT with his upper body. Tough guy who plays hurt. Great six-inch punch to the inside shoulder of the DT in the rush that pops him sideways and instantly out of the rush. He just stones guys in pass pro. I mean, they just stop. 
Nice job going wide to take the inside rusher going wide, so the ORT can take the outside rusher. Stays in his lane and lets defenders cross from every direction, and then smartly picks up the one who finally rushers his lane. 
No trouble moving straight forward, and hitting the LB on the second level. He just doesn't get moved backwards in pass pro. One of the most powerful ORG/OC I have seen in pass pro. Great strong hands. Lunges a little forward sometimes, but once he gets his big mitts on the DT he is done. I'd like to see him more balanced blocking forward. He is extremely well balanced in pass pro.
Terrific in pass pro when he short sets. He plays with nice balance and always plays with great strength. Wisconsin stopped rushing his lane in the 3rd quarter. Not as well balance against the run. He will get high sometimes when he starts moving the DT backwards.

The Reason: Their QB has taken a beating the past couple of years, and they have refused to help protect him. That has to stop. They are still one of the worst run teams in the NFL. They really need an OLT, and an OG. The good news is that there are a ton of 2nd Round OLs in this Draft, and one might slip into the 3rd (also Will Hernandez would be nice pick in the 2nd): Ragnow, Price, and Bozeman.

QB Mike Glennon

OC Joe Hawley

The Team: They have their QB. "Score more points, that is one issue," Koetter said. "The number two biggest issue is we can’t get pressure with a four-man rush. I’m not telling anybody any big secrets here. Those were our two biggest things that need to be addressed." Now they need a guy or two who can hit the QB, or cover so their rushers have time to hit the QB. They garnered the least amount of sacks in the NFL last season.

The Player: He was much better in 2016. He had some kind of break down in the off season. When he returned he was not near the player he was in 2016. He was a lock top ten pick coming into last season. Now? I would not be surprised if he dropped out of Day Two. He seemed to be playing in a fog for half of 2017.

I have no idea what he will be as an NFL player, and I don't think anyone else can say with certainly either. He was not the player or person he was in 2017 that he was in 2016, when everyone wanted to draft him. No one can say for certain that he will ever be that person again. If he struggles in interviews, like I think he will, he will go in Day Three (unless there is a team that are suckers for lack of character players).

Alabama: He is so explosive upfield when he is locked in. He can burst inside the TE, and if the OLT doesn’t help, the QB is going down. He does a nice job covering the RB sneaking out of the backfield. Great job chopping the ORT's arm down, and dipping to the QB. He looked like he was finally playing mentally like he did last season against Alabama.

Auburn: They were dropping him off in coverage a lot against Auburn. Then they lined him up at DT, but that didn't go very well. He barely affected the game. They seemed to change his role this season. He was a player who they always wanted to move forward. Now, they seem unsure. 

FLA: He consistently plays stand up OLB. He will cover the RB sneaking out of the backfield on the screen. He can be physical at the point, and power Rip inside to the RB. Terrific job putting speed to power to knock the blocker back, and burst inside. Nice job sliding inside to get in front of the RB on the drive. He will lose the edge to a big power blocker sometimes. But he does a great job chasing guys down from behind. 

Miss ST: He can look so blah and uninterested on the sideline, but on the field he hustles and finds a way to get himself into positon. He beat Rankins with an inside move to hit the QB on the first play he rushed. He can rush upfield past the ORT with a shoulder fake. Great quickness to make the big blocker miss. Nice timing to leap up in the QBs face when he can't quite reach him. Terrific burst to the ORT's outside shoulder, and Dip into the QB with some nice smoothness. Flashes some 2016 dominances sometimes.

CB Kyle Fuller

The Team: They need help all over the field. They need to start building the defense. They are running a 3-4 scheme that needs guys who can hit the quarterback.

The Player: Hand does a great job getting up field. Great job stunting inside. Freakish player. They have to play him out of position on the edge, and he was getting some passrush. He might end up being a 5-Tech, or inside rusher. He can get up field fast. Nice job slanting inside and turning up field to the QB.

He just kept looking like an elite edge guy in the Champ game. Then they put a TE on him, and he punch him off and went and sacked the QB, like a veteran OLB. Only he's the size of a 280-pound 5-Tech. He can also rush right up the middle like an elite 3-tech. He is such a unique player that he is difficult to classify. The best comparison might be Flowers. An elite athlete at DE, with the size of a 5-Tech.
He looked great in the champ game against Clemson. He finally looked healthy and twitchy. He can move inside and hold off the big ORG, and hold his position on the outside shoulder. He has a nice burst up field to the QB, when the OLT gets out of position. Terrific job stunting inside. They will line him up as a stand up rusher, and he will set the edge with some power. Takes on the pulling OG as the stand up rusher, and still sets the edge. 

The Reason: Best player available pick.

He gets nice He did a good job getting back in slide drill. Showed nice aggression pulling outside. Great form and technique moving outside in pass pro from OC. Smooth and controlled. He stopped moving when the rabbit slipped. He moved smoothly and natural when the rabbit went nuts in mirror drill. One of the best I've seen inside.

The Team: It is near impossible to figure out what the Pats needs are right now. Like most teams we haven't even entered free agency, and no one knows what we will pick up and/or lose. But the Pats have a couple of other issues that other teams aren't facing. Like namely the best player on their team not named Brady is talking about retiring from the NFL, to go make 5-Mil a year to fake wrestle with a bunch of goofs.

As a Pats Fan I'm furious. As an old dude I get it, maybe more than Gronk. So the Pats have to be peeking at tight ends here, and least with one eye wide open. And you know the old axiom, "once you start talking about retirement than you are retired." Gronk has the charisma to be an actor, but he doesn't have any sign of chops yet. But he is funny on camera. So I'm not sure the WWE is really his thing. 

The Pats have a lot of ways to go here, and a lot of guys working on it. "There are a lot of people that go into that [team building]. The three names that you mentioned [Dave Ziegler, Monti Ossenfort, and Richard Miller], and many of the other pro personnel and college scouts that work under or with those people and help to bring information to the table that either gets used or followed up on or is used in comparisons to try to analyze and evaluate players and talent," BB said. "The scouting department is a very hard-working group. They have to cover a lot of [dudes]. The volume that they handle, it's a mountain of information and not all of it is easy to get. 

"You have all the current NFL players, which you can probably add several hundred to the list of players that are in the league, that are on active rosters, because you have all the injured players and then you have players that slide on and off rosters over the course of the season: some of those practice squad players, some of those veterans who are on or off for other competitive reasons as needs arise of various teams. 

"Then you have all the college players and another hundred and some underclassmen that just declared that need to be evaluated. Some of those we anticipated. Some of them we didn't. When you put it all together, the information and evaluations, as I said, it's an incredible volume plus you have all the injury information, character and personality and other things like that that aren't really part of a football evaluation of a player on a football field. It's another component that's a part of it. Again, those guys do a great job of pulling all of that together. They work very hard at it. Nick and Monti and Dave on the college and pro end, respectively. They do a great job. As I said, they have a lot to handle. The volume is enormous." But with Brady in his forties, they have to build an elite power run game.

As Brady's body inevitable declines, they will need to help and protect him more and more each month. As we saw in the Playoffs, the League has turned so far into the pass first ask questions later offenses that the Playoffs were dominated by the teams that could run the ball. The Pats had a great run game. Adams is better than any RB they had on the roster last season. 

If they want to host the Champ Game again next year, their number one priority is to get Brady some elite help, and not a bunch of guys he makes better. If Gronk is gone, and the old axiom is that once you are talking about retirement your are retired, than they will have to go TE at 31 or here (and they will have to go TE just in case anyway). A WR need is a need for a Number One, but not just another guy. Only they have a specific brand of WR they seek: small, ultra quick (under 6.0 in 3-Cone and/or under 4.0 in Short Shuttle), and great hands. 

I went with the most elite and explosive offensive player left on the Board.  

The Player: Combine: Great Tape. Great mover on the field. He rarely had to turn and bail. He plays it so he can watch the QB. Those are the guys I like. The guys who can eye the QB and the WR. Those are the guys get the INTs. His 4.5s should shove him into the 2nd. There are a lot of early teams who would love to snag a Corner like him early in the 2nd. Nice quick pedal. A little tight in transition. A little tight in second transition. Great opening hips in open drill. A little slow in pedal in W drill. 

Oliver is one of my favorite prospects in this Draft. I love how he moves. He flies down field half turned and 3/4 turned as fast as anyone this Draft. He has elite feet moving backwards. He has a great backpedal. Plays a little too much off. But he shuts down the right side. He can stay in pedal moving backwards for 20-yards. He can make plays on the ball in the air.

The Reason: I'm not sure they need a CB. They still have the two Jones' boys who didn't play at the end of last season. But Oliver is too good to pass up here.

Second Choice: Josh Adams RB

The Team: They just switched a 29-year old QB for a QB who will be 34-years old next season. They better get the best blockers they can find and build a wall of humanity in front of him.

The Player: Ragnow is a tank right in the middle of the line. You cannot move him in the rush. He is elite in pass pro. Nice job filling the hole on inside runs. Nice job moving the NT, turning him and sealing him with power and leverage. He missed most of last season, but NFL guys know what he is all about. He started for three seasons. He was voted team captain. Plug and play OC. 

He has a great base to absorb the shock of big inside rushers. "He's a tough guy and a leader in that locker room," a scout said. "He's got the personality that you want your center to have and he's got good strength. I see him as an early starter in the league." Great heavy hands that stop DTs instantly.

The Team: The Pack picked up the best TE in free agency, but still need a third edgerusher. 

Rogers is getting old and recovering from injury. Getting a big TE to help him make some easy throws over the middle, and be a giant deep threat who can track and snag the bad throw, could prolong his career. 

The Player: Hubbard seems more smooth than quick twitch, but he has that knack for keep moving towards the quarterback. Too much of a one move guy, who is still learning to counter on the run. Terrific job against the Jet sweep to his side. 
He decided to stay in school, and didn't have as much production as was expected. Played the run better. He can beat the ORT to the edge, and get out to the flat and hit the RB. He will drop out of the rush, when he gets stuffed on a stunt inside, and sprint out to the flat and cover the RB. 
He has nice speed, quickness and aggression on the stunt inside. He came to college as a 6-4, 205-pound safety. He has put on 60-pounds of muscle in the past three years. 
He is so fast around the corner and into the QB that he makes OLT miss. Terrific speed rusher with a great rip around the corner. Plays that shoulders squared Option defense that you see a lot now, only he can go and hit the QB when he keeps it. 
He can blast up field five yards and pressure the QB on the screen, and jump and tip the pass. Nice speed stunting inside. Nice job protecting the edge, when he extends his hands and keeps his head up to read the play. He can power through the block of the bigger guy, moving sideways to protect the sideline. 
He can chip on the tight end, and still move laterally to stay in front of the QB rolling out to his side. Terrific hands an feet. Misses the snap sometimes. Great initial burst. I love his blast off. He can use it to turn speed to power, and get the ORT on skates. Then shove him off and sack the QB. Doesn't always seem to do a lot, and then he slips o ff the O-Tackle and hits the QB. Nice dip around the Corner on the OLT. I love the way he uses his hands. Nice club into the Dip and Rip.

The Team: The Bengals really fell apart last season. They need to get some character guys, who teammates can rely on. Taking a few Seniors with great character, as much as talent, is what this Franchise really needs. Or just go for the top talent who dropped because of character concerns.

The Team: Fitzpatrick is nearing the end, and there was talk of trading him this off season. Getting a big WR who can help out whatever young QB they pick up. And maybe help Palmer be effective for a year or two longer. Which could everything for this Franchise. 

The Player: Cain has turned himself into a great weapon on the Day Two level. He can leap up over the CB, on the third level, and seems to catch it effortlessly. He really is a big guy when you see him line up in front of a CB. Nice job shuffling his feet in front of the CB before the break. When you go high to him in the endzone he snags it every time. He just consistently finds an opening in the endzone.

"I'm pleased with Deon," Swinney said. "He's not going to practice, and that's really what is best for him. He's going to be here every day. He's in the meetings. He's worked out. He is going to be at practice every day. But the biggest thing with Deon is we have just removed that competitive piece of football. I really don't need to see him run a comeback, to be honest with you."
He can really get up high, dive out, and snag he uncatchable ball out of bounds. Elite catching radius. Nice job reaching out his hands in front of his body when the ball is coming right into his chest. He doesn't let the ball hit is body. Great hands catcher. Nice Redzone target. He can shove off the Jam, and get wide open on the release.

"I am not worried about the football side of Deon Cain," Swinney said. "The football side of Deon Cain is going to be special if I can get him dialed in on other things that really are more important. So we have really just removed the competitive part of this spring because I don't want him to get distracted. I want him to stay focused on what he is doing and handling his responsibility to this University and to this football program."
He can get himself open in pattern with a great fake step outside, and burst inside. 
"He didn't have to come back here. He could have packed up and move on and said, 'hey the heck with that,'" Swinney said. "But that is what I love. He has manned up. He appreciates it. He really does. He appreciates the opportunity he has got here. He recognizes he has some things that he has got to improve in and that is what he is doing." He has the size to be a great blocker.

The Team: If they go DB or OLT in the 1st, they will have to go QB here. 

The PlayerFalk is a unique prospect for a QB. He didn't really play with any NFL talent, but he won games. He doesn't have the strongest arm. He has show more arm strength at the Combine. .He is an Air Raid QB who might have a chance, because they put a ton of pressure on him. He was better in 2016.

He made some great throws in practice at the Senior Bowl. I think his floor is 64. If he is on the boards the Pats could take him to end the 2nd. If BB wants to continue coaching the Pats, he has to get the next QB in this Draft. I like Falk more than most because of his 2016 season. 

His coach put a ton of pressure on him. He showed some clutch play, that wasn't Brady like, but it was close. They were forced to go for it on 4th down almost every time, because they had no punter. He came through more than he didn't. Throws well on the run. Knows when to throw the ball away. 

The Reason: Rivers will afford them another year or two to develop a young QB. This could be the perfect fit for Falk. He can sit and learn for or three, and try to exorcize the Air Raid QB out of his soul. 

Second Choice: Mason Rudolph QB
