The Team: What in the hell are the Packers doing picking here. They now have to think about moving on from Aaron Rogers. He's friggin' nuts. The stuff that came out since the HC was fired is nuts. That's why he didn't win six Super Bowls. It's not because of the HC. It's because he's nuts. Their TEs are old and getting slower every minute. 

The Player: 3/18 AJ Hockenson: The Best TE in 2019 Draft, But...

The Reason: The Packers new guys have to show some love to their Diva QB, who likes to write plays in the turf. There is a ton of turmoil in Green Bay. Getting him a bit TE who can block will help to calm things with Rogers. He would make a great compliment to the aging Jimmy Graham. Hockenson can take over the blocking duties, and take the physical stuff off of Graham. So he can run free down the Seam. Then take over in a year or two as learns the system.  

Last season may have been the finally straw for Rogers odd and caustic personality. If he doesn't win? Is he worthy it? This could be the best place for Lock, because he will get a couple years on the bench to watch, but not learn from (Rogers ain't gonna help him), a HOF QB. Plus, he is similar sized and armed as Rogers.

The Team: The Dolphins have already hit their top off season priority accomplished: screw the Pats over. "Two things that stand out immediately when you meet Brian are his football intelligence and leadership skills," Miami GM Chris Grier siad in a press release. "Brian is widely respected throughout the NFL. He paid his dues in New England working in personnel, on offense, defense and special teams, which helped him build a great understanding of what it takes to win. If you talk with anyone who has played for him or worked with him, you will hear about his ability to lead and get the most out of people. Brian sets a high standard for his players and coaches and we are completely aligned with our vision on how to build a successful organization." The Pats have lost another DC, and current don't have one on their roster. 

They hit on Defense big time in last years Draft. So look for more of an Offensive Draft this year. Though they just hired a DC HC. However, Brian Flores knows that without a great QB, he won't be an HC for long. They can stick with Fitzpatrick this year and pick up a QB in next years Draft. Or, pick up a cerebral QB like Brady here, and let him learn for a year behind an old veteran QB who know how to win in the NFL.

The Dolphins got their stop gap QB, who can hold the team together. They need to use this season to develop a young guy. Lock has some Farve in him. But he is going to need some time. 

Dolphins need to do everything to help their QB. That starts with the O-line, again. 

The Player4/03 Daniel Jones: The Best Pure Pocket Passer. But...

The Reason: The Dolphin still need a long term play at QB. They need to take a guy who is the opposite of Tannehill. They need a smart QB, who isn't going to run around like a jack rabbit and get himself injured and IR-ed. 

The question is does Flores realize that he isn't a DC any more. He will struggle to coach QBs. That is always the question with DC HCs. Do they understand that there job security is based on their QB. Floes knows he can build and run an Offense. But he is not a DC anymore. His question now is can he build a team? Half of which is offense run by a QB. Can he develop a QB like BB did with Brady? Or is he solely at the mercy of his GM and OC?

Either way if the Dolphins don't find and develop a young QB they will all loose their jobs. Jones isn't the best prospect ever. I think he is more similar to Manning than Brady. He is a but of dud personality like Eli. He has an arm more like Payton. He is not a crazy fierce competitor like Brady. But he is smart and cerebral like Brady. Flores better learn here, that his head coaching career is tied directly to whatever QB he picks up next. Fitzpatrick will be a side note.

Fitzpatrick, while a Patriots killer, is a stop gap. He is better than Tannehill, but he might be older than Alex Smith. This is a one year deal, which is perfect for Jones. He can sit and learn for a year, and study an Pro style offense. He is not ready to step in. He played in that wacky spread offense were he never went under center, and never did a five or seven step drop.

The Team: They need a big DL who can play in their 3-4 system. It looks to me like they will address the lines in this amazing D-line Draft. This is a pure best player available pick. Burns tested as a top Edge guy athletically at the Combine. 

Matty Ice ain't getting any younger. "This is my 19th year as an owner and one of the things I've learned is that Matt plays much better vertically than horizontally," Blank said. "I don't think we're complete in terms of the offensive line. I think it'll be an area of great scrutiny and activity during the draft." They are not happy with their O-line and will be looking for some big uglies early. 

The Player: Burns made a ton of money at the Combine. I had him a shade below Polite, and now Polite looks like a 2nd, and this is probably too late for Burns. He measured out as one of the elite athletes in this Draft. I was not expecting that. A 10'9" Broad jump is an incredible explosion number. 

He showed he could get to the QB at FLA ST. He actually had a great season. I did not think he would reach double-digits sacks. He has Long tall legs. He can get a little gawky. Needs to use hands more. He showed some heavy hands at the Combine. Nice COD in open field. Nice blast off. He has great hands and made a great catch off his shoe tops at the combine. Nice feet moving sideways. 
Elite natural athlete. He can really move in coverage drills and catch the ball. Love the way this guy moves in space. He is a 3-4 OLB. He was one of the best movers in space at the Combine. Elite testing numbers at the Combine will move him up into the top half of the 1st. 
He really looks the part. If you look at him vs. Polite, he wins. But I’m not sure he has that knack for hitting the quarterback. Polite does. Burns gets a lot of pressure because of his size and athleticism, but doesn’t reach the QB. He gets lost in the pocket a lot, and can’t find the ball, but it still disrupts the offense. 

CAREER: Appeared in 38 games with 25 starts and recorded 124 tackles, including 39.5 for loss with 24.0 sacks, seven forced fumbles, seven pass breakups, three blocked kicks and two fumble recoveries…sacks total of 24.0 ranked fifth in program history…ranked eighth on FSU’s all-time career tackles for loss list with 39.5.
2018: Started all 12 games and recorded 52 tackles, including 15.5 for loss with 10.0 sacks, eight quarterback hurries, three forced fumbles, three pass breakups and one fumble recovery…named fourth-team All-American by Phil Steele…first-team All-ACC…Bendarik Award semifinalist…earned Team MVP and Defensive MVP honors…voted team captain…ranked first in ACC and eighth in NCAA with average of 0.83 sacks per game…average of 0.3 forced fumbles per game ranked third in ACC and 31st in NCAA…ranked fifth in ACC and 28th in NCAA with average of 1.3 tackles for loss per game…led ACC with 15.5 tackles for loss, 112 TFL yards lost, 10.0 sacks and 94 sack yards lost in conference play.

The Reason: They have to get an Edge guy to help hit QBs. They picked up three OLs this off season. So I don't see them going OL. Burns is a freak athlete who can play on the Strongside at OLB in their defense. The could go NT here and take Christian Wilkins, but I think he is less a NT, and more of a 3-Tech. 

As long as Grady Jarrett is unsigned they have to go DT here.

The Team: Both their starting QBs got injured last year. Smith broke his leg, and might be done, and McCoy never really was. He is a good backup, but no one has seen him as a starting QB.  They have to get a young guy who can learn for the next year or two and then step in an start. Though it looks like they might need a starter this season. They might not have the choice to pass on a QB in the 1st. 

They have to get some weapons for their QB. And they have to get a young guy to grow behind their 40-yard old or so QB.

The Player: Gary had his best seasons as a rusher when they lined up up inside at 3-Tech to rush. His first two years he was an inside rusher. He is a super athletic freak and can burst off the Tape. But not enough to make me happy. I question his instincts. He has everything else. If puts is all together and stays healthy he could be the best rusher from this Draft. 

Gary is a huge guy. He really looks the part. But he doesn’t have that knack for hitting the quarterback: 2016 1 Sack, 2017, 6 Sacks, 2018 3.5 Sacks. He has to stay on the field. He lacks moves in the rush that you need in the NFL. Consistently wants to use speed to power and bull rush. Elite blast off. He has to learn to use his hands better. When he sheds the OL he hits the QB. 

He kept screwing up drills at the Combine by guessing, but did a great job recovering once he got himself out of balance. Great feet moving backwards. Smooth athlete when he isn’t trying to cheat the drill. An official 4.58 Forty at 277-pounds is incredible. 

Great mover on the field. Wow, he is great moving backwards. Elite Mover. Great COD moving forward to backward. Nice inside slap. Elite closing burst. He showed a great spin at Combine. Nice burst forward. He has hands like feet trying to catch the ball. Needs to shed OL's hands faster and quicker. 

Gary is a phenomenal freak athlete. He has not been as productive this season so far. Than he got injured. But he still has all the skills that made him a top prospect coming into this season. He finally got back on the field against Penn State. 

He showed his great blast off against Penn ST, but his instincts were a little rusty. He has to size to be a great two-gapper. But he is at his best when he can just burst inside or outside the OT. He has such a nice inside move that he scares QBs out of the pocket. It was so good to see him back against Penn ST.

Junior (2018): Preseason All-Big Ten selection (East Division). Named Defensive Lineman of the Week for his performance against Western Michigan. Made six stops with one solo tackle and a shared tackle for loss at Notre Dame (Sept. 1), and was credited with one quarterback hurry. Recorded seven tackles against Western Michigan (Sept. 8) with one sack and a quarterback hurry. Registered one quarterback hurry with three overall tackles against SMU (Sept. 15). Tailed two solo stops, both for loss, against Nebraska (Sept. 22) with one sack. Made four total tackles at Northwestern (Sept. 29), Wisconsin (Oct. 13).

The Reason: Gary is a trick or treat prospect. If he stays healthy he could be one of the best picks in the Draft here. But if he can't stay healthy he could be a very frustrating story. He needs to lose some weight and bulk and work on more flexibility.  

If they can't get a QB here than they have to get someone to help the old QB they got left.

The Team: They have to get some blocking for Cam. He takes a beating. Getting an OLT who can take away worries on the blindside will lengthen Newton's career. 

They did not draft an interior OL in the past two Drafts, even though they lost one of the best to Free Agency.

The Player: 4/05 Clelin Ferrell: 2018 Bio. Updated.

The Reason: They need to do everything they can to help their QB to get back to the Super Bowl. Dillard can play all over their line and improve one of them instantly. I think he is a plug and play OLT.

The Team: Giant have the worst O-line in the NFL. Yup that's about it. 

The Player: Jonah Williams slides back like a cat in pass pro. He stays low and wide, but he keeps his hands outside as well. He has to do a better job keeping his hands inside. Great job in play action moving the D-end back. Then holding on by the LOS for the whole play. He really does not kick slide as much as I'd like. He shuffles back like an OG a lot. Great job blocking down on the DT. 

He could be a great Guard if he doesn’t work out at OLT. He can block down on the DT and shove him to the ground, and then go and seal the LB. He gets movement to the left when he blocks down on the DT to the side. He can step outside and drive the OLB into the Safety on the Goal line. A great power run blocker. A true drive blocker on the goal line. 

Williams was a guy I wasn't completely sure about. But he has looked like an NFL OLT this season. He plays with great balance moving forward, and nobody recovers from a great move by the rusher better than he does. Great hands and when he grabs shirt the rush is done. 

Junior (2018): Secured the starting right tackle spot as a freshman and moved to left tackle as a sophomore, earning All-America recognition ... named the FWAA/Outland Trophy Offensive Lineman of the Month (September) ... started all 37 games of his Alabama career (22 at left tackle, 15 at right tackle) ... helps open holes for the nation’s 30th-ranked rushing offense (216.9 ypg), the No. 1 scoring offense (54.1 ppg) and the No. 2 total offense (564.3 ypg) ... the Tide’s offensive front also ranks tied for third nationally in fewest sacks allowed at 0.63 per game ... has 31 knockdown blocks on the season, the second highest number on the team ... has graded out at 90 percent or higher in all eight games this season, for an average grade of 91.9 ... has only missed three assignments in 453 snaps at left tackle for a success grade of 99.3 percent ... has not allowed a sack all season and just one pressure ... selected as a Midseason All-American by The Sporting News and ESPN.com while earning Midseason First Team All-America recognition by the Associated Press ... preseason first team All-America honoree by five major outlets ... named to the Outland Trophy Watch List to start the year

The Reason: I think Williams is an NFL OLT. If not he cannot fail as an OLG. And he might be able to play ORT. Coincidentally Jonah can play all three positions.

The Team: Dillard is the most athletic OL in this Draft. Spielman loves his best available athletes. They are switching to a Zone blocking scheme. Where athleticism is even more important. They want their OLs blocking on the move laterally to open cut back lanes for the RB. This system fits him to a T. 

They will likely take a big OL here to help the OL. Though they did sign two free agent OLs that coast them some money. Ford could easily be a plug and play OLG for them as he learns to play on the left side for a move to OLT. Or they can put him in at ORG or ORT to battle as a rookie. 

The Player3/28 Andre Dillard: Best OL In The Draft, But Nothing!.

The Reason: I'm not saying that Dillard is the best OLT prospect in this Draft. I'm saying he is the most athletic OL on Tape. That is what I think will make him great. He might need a little more time than Jonah Williams, because he didn't play in the SEC. But he has the athleticism to great in the Zone block system. 

Spielman loves the best athlete available philosophy. Jacobs is that guy here.

The Team: Vrabel is building a terrific defense down in Tennessee. It could be scary the next few years if he can pick up a another CB. Logan Ryan is in the final year of his contract. They don't really have a 3rd corner, or anyone behind the two Patriots CBs they stole. 

They needs to get a weapon to help their young QB. But I'm not a fan of the WRs here. However there is a big tall fast guy who can catch the  ball like a WR available. 

The Player: Murphy turn into a great player during the season. He was the best Corner in college football the second half of the season. He can get tough at the point on a WR Screen. He slammed the WR blocking him back into the WR trying to catch the bubble screen, and he knocked the ball out. Usually takes the WR who runs the deep route when Twins line up in front of him. He can put a big hit on the TE when he catches the ball in front of him. He reminds me of Logan Ryan.

Ohio State: He will pretend to cover the WR, even when he turns to block him, and continuing retreating so he can’t touch him. He will slightly curve over the middle deep sometimes when he sees the Dive. He will attack over the WR, on the WR screen to the slot guy on his side. That is the most physical I saw him get so far. He has some snap turning and running outside. 

He likes to turn and run 3/4ers after the snap. Great feel for the WR behind. He runs easily with the deep WR. He just doesn’t struggle with anything athletically. He doesn't rush inside to stop the run very much. Mostly waits outside. But he is a tough tackler. He can get to the RB on the edge and knock him back on his butt with a fierce form tackle. He is a pure finesse CB. 

Great job moving back and angling outside. He will stay covering his man, even when he is watching the RB run up the middle. He has no interest in moving inside to help out in the run game. But he will step up when the RB bounces it outside to his side. He will knock the out of bounds when the RB gets down the sideline. He might be the most physical run defender at CB.

Murphy is a marvel on the field. He should go higher than this. But if he is the Board they cannot pass on him. Elite cover guy that consistently shut down the WR on the QB's right all season. Great feet and smooth hips make him elite. His speed at the Combine will determine how high he goes. I really like this kid. He is tough in the run game. He has to run faster at his Proday. He needs a 4.4 next to his name to go this high.

A 4.55 was a 2nd Round number for him. That is why he prefers to play off. Whoever has no trouble with him in Off is going to get a good one on Day Two. Great quick pedal. Great feet. Smooth transition. Quick tight pedal. Instant transition. Love his hips. Nice burst out of transition where he turns his back to the QB. Elite adjustment to the ball. Great quicks out of transition. Nice click and close. Nice transition. Great acceleration out of break. No drop in first gauntlet. No drop in 2nd gauntlet. 

2018: Started all 14 games at cornerback in 2018 ... five tackles as a starter against Auburn in the season opener ... also made five stops in the win over North Dakota ... five tackles, including one for a loss, and four pass break-ups in the win at Utah ... two tackles against Arizona State ... six tackles, two tackles for loss, a forced fumble and a pass break-up in the win over BYU ... had four tackle in the win at UCLA ... six tackles and two pass break-ups at Oregon ... notched four tackles in the win over Colorado ... had three tackles, including half of a tackle for loss, at California ... seven tackles, including half of a tackle for a loss, and also had an interception in the Husky win over Stanford ... made six tackles in the UW win over Oregon State ... had two tackles and made an interception in the endzone in the Apple Cup win at WSU ... named the MVP of the Pac-12 Championship Game, when he scored the game's only touchdown on a 66-yard interception return ... also had another interception in that win over the Utes ... also earned the Husky coaches' defensive player of the game for the Pac-12 title game ... two stops against Ohio State in the Rose Bowl

The Reason: This is a best player available pick, or maybe I'm just trying to find a way for Fant to drop. Would Vrabel give up this pick (Fant) for 32 and 64? There have been discussions about trading up to between 15 and 20, just about the time the finalized a deal with the Titans and Vrabel to have of week of preseason practice together. What a coincidence. 

This will benefit both teams a ton on the preparation aspect for next season. "Clearly you know all the head coaches, but you have a better relationship with some of the other ones, and Bill is one that I have a better relationship with. So it was, 'Hey, we’re putting in to play you guys in the preseason. And Bill was like, 'Can we come to Nashville and practice?'" Vrabel said. "I think that would be a great idea. We practiced against the Patriots when we were in Houston. And I feel like they are a good team to practice against just because of the same expectations. Trying to get stuff done. Trying to get things accomplished but not fighting or anything." Another positive aspect of this meeting could be a trade.

You don't trade for a slot, you trade up for a player. "According to a source, the Patriots have had preliminary discussions about trading up in the 1st round," Hannable wrote. "The source indicated the Patriots are looking at the 15-20 range. If the Patriots were to do this, using the draft pick value chart, it would likely take their 1st round pick [32], a 2nd round pick [64] and a 3rd round pick [101]." 19 would be the perfect place to pick up Fant. 

He is an athletic marvel, who can also block. They also could be looking at a QB here. But I think the QBs Lock and Jones will be gone. It will be very interesting to see if this deal can be worked out. The other outside guy could be N'Keal Harry, who I think will be the second best WR in this Draft. He played in the Slot a lot, but lined up primarily on the QB's left. He is a phenomenal talent and just a freak on the field like Fant. 

Second Choice: Trade Pick to Patriots so they can draft Noah Fant TE

The Team: They need help on offense. They need a young QB and an RB. Unless of course, Tomlin sees a great young OLB/passrusher who can fit in his defense. A WR to attempt to replace Antonio Brown wouldn't hurt.

They need help on defense. "The game has changed," Colbert said. "Look, we sacked the quarterback at a very good rate, but our takeaways are not very good at all. It’s really reflective on the players we have back there. What we want to look at, what we want to value looking forward, is let’s value the takeaway-capable guys who have shown they’ve been able to do that in college." They will be looking for some speed off the edge.
They have always loved the Edgerusher in the 1st Round. "Our game has always been about getting physical players who can come off the edge and close off the edge and make a tackle," Colbert said. "But are they doing that at the expense of not making plays on the football? We have to maybe try to find that balance and maybe be more open to the concept that the game is constantly changing, and if you want playmakers in the back end, then find someone who has done it." They have been getting the pressure.
But the the INTs on the backend. "You would think that it would. But sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn’t," Colbert said. "Artie Burns had five great interceptions as a senior at Miami, and right now Artie is trying to find his game. He had more interceptions than all but one other cornerback in that draft. You hoped that would transfer and early it showed that it might, but right now he has to re-find it." I got your huckleberry. 

The Player: 4/02 N'Keal Harry: The Best WR In The Draft, But...

The Reason: Harry is a freakish WR, who I think will develop into a Number One. I'm not thrilled with the Bolden comparisons, but he does kind-ah reminds me of Antonio Brown.  

Baker is not the best guy at getting INTs. But he will start across form Haden and give them some great man coverage.

The Team: Pete Carroll is always looking for passrushers, especially speed rushers. 

They are still looking to replace Richard Sherman.

The Player: Greedy got a little high in transition. "Definitely, I’ve got to step that up," Greedy said. "And get that right. And get the right technique." He has to sink his hips better in pedal. 

Needs to work on his pedal. "They’re going to get a guy who works hard," Greedy said. "A guy dedicated to winning. Definitely put the team first. Always grew up playing football. Get a man who knows the responsibility. Who wants to come in and have a big impact on the team,″ He has to sink his hips better. 

He does not always look like he is interested in tackling. "I put a high priority on tackling just in general for our team and I don’t think we can change that depending on whatever position it is," Matt Patricia said, as I was sticking Greedy in at 8. "You’ve got to find the right balance because obviously the biggest thing they’ve got to do is be able to cover in those situations. But understand that some of the players on the other side of the ball are pretty good, too. They’re going to catch the ball and what you want to make sure that happens is that they’re tackled right away and they don’t turn those plays, whatever they are, into bigger plays." He could fall out of the top ten. 

But there are just not a lot of guys with his size, speed, and cover instants. His best transition was when he flipped around and put his back to the QB. Then he tracked it and went up and snagged it over his head. Good click and close. He got low and used the feet. He stop working out at the Combine do to cramps. 

No drop in first gauntlet. No drop in 2nd gauntlet. Greedy is a Redshirt Soph. So he was able to declare. They had more Redshirt Sophomores declare than ever before this year. He has great size and feet. He can play the ball in the air like a WR. We will see his size and speed at the Combine. If he has the track speed, like his field speed, he will be a top ten pick. 

Smooth hips turning upfield. Ultra focus on WR gives him an edge in the passing game, but he can be taken advantage of in the run game by running the outside WR deep and running behind him. Great quick feet when he turns and runs. I'd like to see more jabs and chucks from him, but his ability to turn and run without contact fits today's NFL. 

Overview: Tremendous cover corner that capped his LSU career as a finalist for the Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back … First Team All-America in 2018 after earning third team honors as a redshirt freshman in 2017 …Two-time first team All-SEC selection … Played in 24 games with 24 starts during his LSU career … Led the SEC in interceptions in 2017 with six … Finished career with eight interceptions, 71 tackles and 28 passes defended … Cornerback with a big frame ... Has great instincts and tremendous ball skills ... Full name is Andraez but goes by Greedy … Grandmother nicknamed him Greedy when he was young … Older brother Rodarius is a starting cornerback for Oklahoma State … Grew up playing youth league football with Devin White.
SOPHOMORE SEASON (2018): Started all 12 regular season games at cornerback for the Tigers … Did not play in the Fiesta Bowl, instead opted to make himself eligible for the 2019 NFL Draft … Finalist for the Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back … First team All-America from Walter Camp, Football Writers and American Football Coaches Association … Second team All-America from the Associated Press and Sporting News … First team All-SEC for second straight year from the AP … Capped year with 33 tackles, two interceptions, 11 passes defended … Registered a career-best 10 tackles in win over Ole Miss … Interceptions came in wins over Southeastern Louisiana and Auburn … Broke up three passes in win over Arkansas.
REDSHIRT FRESHMAN SEASON (2017): The top freshman cornerback in all of college football … Started every game at left cornerback for LSU … Totaled six interceptions for 32 return yards … The third player in the SEC since 2008 to lead the league in passes defended and interceptions …Became the first LSU player since Craig Steltz in 2007 to lead the SEC in interception … Finished with 38 tackles, 17 passes defended and 11 pass breakups … Intercepted passes against BYU, Chattanooga, Arkansas and Texas A&M for no return … Took the opening pass against Syracuse 28 yards for his third interception of the year … Also had an interception for four yards in the Citrus Bowl against Notre Dame.

The Reason: Seahawks are known for taking chances on talent over character, like Frank Clark. If his knee checks and he is on the Board, this could be his landing spot.

Za'Darius Smith Edge
John Brown WR 

The Team: They have never recovered from the loss of Steve Smith. They have not even tried. They have not drafted a WR on Day One or Day Two in the past three Drafts. No wonder Jackson looked so terrible in the Playoffs.

Ravens need an Edge guy to help their defense. Sweat just keeps proving he is a top Edge guy over and over again. This is such a typical Ravens pick. 

The Player2/20 Marquise Brown: The Best Pure Speed WR In 2019 Draft. But...

The Reason: How can your QB help you win when you don't give him anyone to throw too. But they need an edge guy just as much as a WR. Best Player Available. 

He reminds me of Patriots killer Terrell Suggs, who was not the most athletic rusher ever, but was fierce and had a great knack for hitting the quarterback.

Second Choice: AJ Brown WR
