Bradley Pinion P 

Key F.A. Lost:


The Team: With Jimmy-G gone, they season is over. 

The Player: The Great Bosa plane was starting to take off and then crashed. He hurt his knee. Rumor has it that he will sit out the rest of the season to protect his future and Draft statue, And while I don't like it, I certainly cannot disagree with that decision. Though the competitor in him still might come out. 

The Reason: They have to get some weapons for Jimmy-G. However, there is not a top five talent on offense in this Draft, beside a QB or two (though an offensive player or two will get pushed up for needs:).  

Second Choice: Ed Oliver DT

The Team: Now that they have a QB, they can start to build a winner again. If I am the Cards, I have to be thinking heavily about Harry here (especially after that USC game;). Getting an elite WR prospect for him to grow with, could change this Franchise for over a decade. 

The Player: Williams is having he best season of all the DLs in this Draft. He has been unstoppable. They play him all over the line in Odd and Even fronts. He has taken over as they guy other teams try and double first, from Raekwon. He had the best defensive game of the year against LSU (I had him with 4 sacks), and had the most impressive sack of the Season against Miss ST. He has become the player we thought Ed Oliver would be this season. 

Some scouts are rightly comparing him to Aaron Donald this season. On run play they double teamed Raekwon, and Williams Swam over the OG, and slammed into the RB a split season after the hand off. That was Donald like smarts, explosion, and quicks. In the first five games he had 10 tackles and 4 TFL, in the next four (or so;) he had 20 Tackles, 9 TFL, and 5 sacks (and he had a couple of Sacks against Miss ST:).

Sophomore (2018): Powerful defensive lineman who redshirted in his first season at UA ... gained valuable experience on special teams and in a rotational role on the defensive line as a redshirt sophomore before working his way into the starting nose guard spot this season ... totaled a team-high 12 tackles for loss (-49 yards) and ranks second on the Tide with nine quarterback hurries to go with a safety and one pass breakup ... added 43 tackles and four sacks (-26 yards) to his 2018 line ... named a semifinalist for the Bednarik Award, presented annually to the nation’s top defensive player ... earned Midseason Second Team All-America recognition from the Associated Press ... named the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week and the Bronko Nagurski National Defensive Player of the Week by the FWAA for his performance at LSU ... selected as the Bednarik Award Player of the Week for his efforts against Missouri and at LSU ... named SEC Co-Defensive Lineman of the Week for his play in Orlando against Louisville and SEC Defensive Player of the Week following the LSU contest ... selected as one of the defensive players of the week by the Alabama coaches for his efforts against Louisville, Arkansas State, Ole Miss, Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee and LSU.
LSU: Earned numerous weekly awards for his play against the Tigers including defensive player of the week recognition from the Alabama coaches ... selected as the Walter Camp and Bronko Nagurski National Defensive Player of the Week and the Bednarik Award Defensive Player of the Week to go with SEC Defensive Player of the Week accolades from the conference office ... paced the defensive unit with a career-high 10 tackles and 2.5 sacks (-18 yards) to go with a career-high tying 3.5 tackles for loss (-19 yards) ... played a key role in holding LSU to only 196 yards of total offense, including just 12 yards on 25 total carries in the shutout.

The Reason: We don't know if Quinnen will declare, Rs-Soph rarely do. But if he does I just can't see how the Card could pass on him. This is what you really want when you draft that young QB. You want him to look great, and lose every game so you can get another top five pick.

Second Choice: N'Keal Harry WR



Defense: 3-4

Earl Watford ORT
Greg Robinson OLT
Orson Charles FB
Rod Streater WR
Ray-Ray Armstrong OLB
Carl Davis DT
Breshad Perriman WR
Rashard Higgins WR 
Briean Boddy-Calhoun CB
Trevon Coley DT 
Da'Mari Scott WR 
Pharaoh Brown TE 

Key F.A. Lost:


The Team: The Brown have so much stinking young talent from three straight drafts of twice as many picks as everyone else. So who the heck knows what they will do. 

The Player: Harry is a phenomenal freakish talent. He still has some brain farts that will make you crazy (like FAIR CATCHING a punt at the 3-yard line against USC). But he is so much faster than everyone else on the field that when he puts that elite size, speed, and hands on display, with some smarts, he is a top five pick. 

The Reason: It is tough to pass on a number of edge guys here. But they need to get some players who can help their young QB as quickly and as soon as possible. Trading down is a big possibility here, for a big OLT: Jonah Williams, or Greg Little. 

Second Choice: Ed Oliver 3-Tech

Key F.A. Lost:


The Team: Raiders are in full tanking mode. Gruden will do everything to lose the rest of the game this season already. Kind-ah sad. 

The Player: Ferrell has gotten better this season. He looks more and more like a top five pick every time I see him play. I thought Bryant was a little better than he was last season. However, he has shown himself to be much better than Bryant this season. When all is said and done, he might be the second Edge guy taken after Bosa. 

The Reason: I had him in an early pick to the Raiders before last season's Draft. So why change it here?

Key F. A, Lost:


The Team: The Bills got their young QB in last years Draft, and really want to tank this season to get a super impact player again. Once their young QB starts working out, they will not have a shot at a top Five pick again. Oliver's drop is not an indictment of his talent, but a matter of circumstance in the most talented D-line ever. Some top-five DL talent is going to fall out of the Top Five. 

The Player: Oliver is a marvel. I watched him against East Carolina. He was awesome. The coaches changed their offense specifically to avoid Oliver at all cost. They completely schemed against him, because of his ability to be unblockable at 3-Tech. He finally got his first Sack, and had two on the game (three in his last two game). Even before his first Sack of the season, he was a force of nature that East Carolina couldn't do anything to stop him. He hurt himself (ankle I think), and he should pull a Bosa and start preparing for the Draft. He has nothing left to prove at Houston. But he is such a high character kid that he might comeback and finish out the season.  

The Reason: The Bills need some help on the interior D-line. Oliver could drop a little in next years Draft because of his terrible start, and then the injury. The Bills know that Brady hates inside pressure, and Oliver is tied for first getting inside pressure on QBs.

Second Choice: Another team who could not pass on N'Keal Harry WR

The Team: They are still one of the worst run teams in the NFL. Wilkins would be a top five DL-talent in any other Draft, but this is really a great fit for him. Plus, he is from Springfield , Mass. So you have to like him!

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: I think they reach for a WR or OG here, or just go top DL.

The Team: Another AFC East team looking to tank the season with their rookie QB. They still need someone who can hit Brady. 

The Player: Allen might be the most undervalued player in this Draft. He reminds me of Von Miller. Both were pure 3-4 OLB in college. Elite burst and speed to the corner. Elite bend around the edge. If he tests as well as Miller, he could go top five.

The Reason: Teams need more and more DE/OLB who can be multiple. Allen can rush from anywhere. He has that quick twitch knack for hitting the quarterback. 

Second Choice: (they would love-love-love) N'Keal Harry WR

Key Free Lost


The Team: They really need help on offense. Love is the best offensive weapon available. However, the last thing they need is another RB. What they really need is a WR to replace Allen Robinson. 

The Player: Fant has the speed to get open down the Seam. He can really move, from the Slot. He looks big, but he has that knack for getting open deep. He can line up with his hand down. And run a skinny Post past the OLB, for the easy looking TD in the Redzone. Great big hand to catch the ball effortlessly. TMIWTMIL. 

The Reason: They have to find a target for their QB that can change the defense. I focused on Fant's ability to get down the Seam. Because that is the easiest throw for a QB, and really hurts defenses. It would be a huge reach, but I think he is the best player left who can help their QB the most.

Second Choice: They would kill to get N'Keal Harry WR (but would they give a 2nd or more to trade up and snag him;)?

The Team: Well, they don't need a passrusher here, with Bradley Chubb and Von Miller going nuts (but if Josh Allen were still on the Board it could get interesting;). They need a nose tackle, as Peko is not getting any younger.  

The Player: Tillery is the most undervalued player in this Draft. He has cooled off lately. He has 7 sacks early in the season, and hasn't had one in a little while.

SENIOR SEASON (2018): Selected Midseason All-America by Sporting News (first team), The Athletic (first team), Sports Illustrated (first team) and Associated Press (second team). Named to the Pro Football Focus College Team of the Week after two sacks and a forced fumble in win over No. 14 Michigan. Recorded four sacks, forced a fumble and added two QB hurries in win over No. 7 Stanford. For his performance against the Cardinal, named Walter Camp Defensive Player of the Week, Bronco Nagurski National Defensive Player of the Week and Reese's Senior Bowl Senior of the Week. Team-best seven sacks as part of 21 total tackles (7.5 for loss)
Added four hurries and three forced fumbles

The Reason: I am giving them Tillery because I would absolutely hate to see him lined up between Miller and Chubb. YIKES!

The Team: Of the leftover needs from last years Draft, I have DE/Passrusher as the top two. I love Bryant, but the depth in this Draft is phenomenal at D-end. 

The Player: Bryant is just as athletic as Ferrell, but doesn't always look like he has the same pass rush instincts. He seems to want to stack and shed a little too much, and not just blast off in the rush. Might be better off in a two-gap system than Ferrell. 

Terrific job jamming the ORT up and back, and then shoving him off, and diving back to tackle the RB trying to run inside of him on a draw. He is such a rare quick athlete. Terrific against the run. Great hands in the rush. Knows how to control the blocker. 

Overview: Defensive end who has been a part of Clemson’s two-deep rotation for his entire career … Entered 2018 with 109 tackles, 20.5 tackles for loss, 12 sacks, 20 quarterback pressures, four pass breakups, two caused fumbles and an interception in 1,140 snaps over 36 games (14 starts) in his career … preseason second-team All-American by Street & Smith’s … preseason third-team All-American by Phil Steele … preseason fourth-team All-American by Athlon … No. 32 player in the nation in the preseason by Sports Illustrated and No. 57 player by NFL.com … No. 7 defensive end in the nation in the preseason by Lindy’s … preseason first-team All-ACC by Street & Smith’s … preseason second-team All-ACC by Athlon and Phil Steele.
2018 (11/3): Made a season-high six tackles at Texas A&M … recorded two sacks among his three tackles against Georgia Southern, collecting team co-defensive player of the week honors … added another sack at Georgia Tech … posted four tackles in comeback win vs. Syracuse … made one stop at Wake Forest … contributed two tackles vs. NC State and one tackle at Florida State.

The Reason: They took two corners in last years Draft. So now they can sit here and take the best available passrusher on the Board. 

Second Choice: Austin Bryant CB
