Key F.A. Lost:

The Team: What in the hell are the Packers doing picking here. They now have to think about moving on from Aaron Rogers.

The Player: Lock was the 2nd best QB in this Draft, but he showed up at the Senior Bowl with smaller hands than NFL GMs like for their QBs. Measurement matter. He has smaller hands (9-inches) than the minimum measurement for NFL QBs. He was not great at the Senior Bowl, but he won the start. 
I think he the most NFL ready (for whatever that means for a rookie QB), because I have seen him go through his progressions across the field to his forth option.
"We played a Heisman Trophy winner a few years ago [Mariota]," Wyoming HC Craig Bohl said when asked about Lock. "And I don't think this guy is too far off." He s a little short, but has similar size and arm to Rogers.

In fact, he looks like he might have a better arm. "Mizzou QB Drew Lock flies unfairly under the radar. Lock is a superstar," Dari Nowkah (SEC Network) said. "Perhaps anyone who doesn't appreciate him now will appreciate him when he is winning football games on Sundays." Missouri plays mostly against more talented teams in the SEC. 

Nice thrower to the 3rd level when he has a clean pocket. Nice job stepping up into the pocket and throwing a Dime in traffic. He knows how to throw the ball up down and all around defenders to complete the pass. He can consistently throw to his second and third receivers. He has some speed, and can run for the first down. 

2018 OUTLOOK: Became just the ninth SEC QB and 112th FBS QB to pass for more than 10,000 yards in a career with his 204 yards at South Carolina (10/6) … His three TD passes at Purdue moved his career total to 82, sixth-most ever among SEC quarterbacks … Moved into second place on Mizzou’s all-time career passing list in the season-opener against UT Martin (9/1), throwing for 289 yards and four scores, his ninth career game with at least four passing TDs … It was also his 24th career game with more than 200 passing yards … His 225.9 passer rating in the game was the sixth-best mark in program history … Had four touchdown passes against Wyoming (9/8), tying Andre Woodson for the seventh-most touchdown passes in SEC history with 79 … Set a new career high in completions during that game, completing 33-of-45 attempts … Passed for three TDs in the first half at Purdue (9/15) to move his career total to 82, ranking him sixth in SEC history as he passed Eli Manning (Ole Miss) on the conference’s all-time career passing TD list … Threw for 221 yards against Georgia (9/22), the 27th time in his career he has thrown for at least 200 yards … It was his 14th straight game with at least 200 yards through the air … Followed that with his 15th straight game of more than 200 yards after going 17-for-36 for 204 yards at South Carolina, doing so without three starting WRs, who missed the majority of the game due to injury.

The Reason: 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. 

They have some contracts coming up along the D-line. They got a weapon for Rogers. Now they have to get a passrusher to help the defense.

The Team: Dolphins need to do everything to help their QB. . 

The PlayerJonah 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: Williams can play all over their line and improve one of them instantly.

Key F.A. Lost:


The Team: They need a big DL who can play in the two-gap 3-4 system.

The Player: Wilkins is the real deal. He plays a lot of Nose Tackle, when I don't think he is a nose tackle. He is at his best as a 3-Tech. 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: It looks to me like they will address the lines in this amazing D-line Draft. This is a pure best player available pick. Wilkins should be a top ten pick. 

Second Choice: Jonah Williams OL

Key F.A. Lost:


The Team: They have to get some weapons for their QB. .

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

Second Choice: Daniel Jones QB

Key F.A. Lost:


The Team: Getting a big WR could do nothing but help Cam. 

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: Metcalf is a giant WR, who may have pumped himself up too much, and his Bio is almost done. 

The Reason: They need to do everything they can to help their QB to get back to the Super Bowl. And we all know how much the Panthers love to draft big WRs.

Key F.A. Lost:


The Team: The Brown have so much friggin' 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: Baker doesn't have the best ball skills of the CBs in this Draft. But he has been shutting down SEC WRs all season. Either he or Greedy Williams is going to be the top Corner, likely because of whichever one runs the best Forty at the Combine. 

2018: Has started all eight games thus far, with 26 total stops, two interceptions (team high) and eight pass breakups (team high), one tackle for lost yardage, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery...first interception came on first series of South Carolina game...second pick -- and seventh of his career -- came in first quarter vs. MTSU...pre-season All-America 1st team by Associated Press.

The Reason: This is a pure best player available pick.

The Team: Now I'm not saying that Running back is the only need the Viking have. What I'm saying is that Spielman did such a great job addressing all his needs in last years Draft that the only need I had left was RB. There will be other needs on Draft day. 

The Player: Jacobs is a freak athlete. His ability to make guys miss with great cuts is a great NFL trait. He has freakishly strong legs, which is a must for an NFL RB. He showed everything you need in an NFL RB last season. Including pass pro, and catching the ball out of the backfield.

Key F.A. Lost:


The Team: They need 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. 

Vrabel is build a terrific defense down in Tennessee. It could be scary the next few years if he can pick up a Number One Corner. 

The Player: Fant has the speed to get open down the Seam, which really helps open things up for the WRs outside and in the Slot. 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. 

He will be drafted higher than people think when he shows his athleticism at the Combine. "He’s such a talented player and he’s done so many things in this league and proving himself as an elite player," WR Nick Easley said. "He’s really good and defenses are going to key on him all day. We should be able to take advantage of that.” He garnered a lot of attention from coverage, which left other guys like Hockenson wide open.  

He was doubled to death last season. "We have a lot of guys out there that are weapons and [Fant's] right there at the top of the list," Stanley said. "Maybe defenses based off of certain coverages they run against one our route concepts are able to take him away more so than a different person. Again, it just comes back down to what the defense does and the play that we have against that certain defense." So his stats were not as good as expected. That has to improve. 

2018: Season totals include 39 receptions for 519 yards and seven touchdowns . . . ranked ninth in the Big Ten with seven touchdown receptions . . . saw action in 33-7 win over Northern Illinois as offense gained 209 net rushing yards . . . three receptions for 10 yards in opening win, including a 1-yard scoring reception for 13th career touchdown.
Hawk-Item: Nineteen career touchdown receptions are most ever by an Iowa tight end and ranks fourth in school history . . . 19 career TDs ranks third best among Big Ten tight ends all-time . . . ranks 37th in career receiving yards (78-1,083) . . . four career games with multiple touchdowns . . . led the nation’s tight ends with 16.5 yards per catch average, and 11 touchdown receptions, which is also an Iowa tight end record, in 2017 . . . one of 10 true freshmen to see action in 2016.

The Reason: He could be the guy that takes their offense to a new level.

Key F.A. Lost:


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. 

The Player: Allen is a big 285-pound base end, who can play OLB. He can cover, and pressure the QB. Against Temple he showed his cover skills with 2 PBUs. He also had 4 TFLs, and sacked the QB twice. He showed size and ability to hit with speed, and forced a fumble as well. He is the most versatile rusher in this Draft. He plays with great pad level and strength. His ability to club the ORT's hands down, and Dip past him seemingly at will is incredible. 

He likes to line up at an angle, with a hand down, as a Wide-9 or 11 rusher. But he can also rush standing up as an OLB, and inside up the middle. He also drops and can cover the RB out of the backfield. He is much bigger than Harold Landry, but his knack for hitting the quarterback is not as advanced as Landry's yet. But any team that wants multiple fronts is going to love Allen. He can play anywhere along the front seven. 

2018 (SENIOR): Preseason All-America selection by Phil Steele’s and Athlon Sports... on the Bednarik Award, Bronko Nagurski Trophy, Wuerffel Trophy and Ted Hendricks Award Watch Lists... picked up a sack and three tackles vs. UMass (9/1/18)... registered five tackles and 0.5 TFL at Wake Forest (9/13/18)... grabbed five tackles, a half sack and recovered a fumble at Purdue (9/22/18)... posted 4.0 TFLs, 2.0 sacks on eight tackles with a forced fumble, two pass breakups and a quarterback hurry against Temple (9/29/18)... picked up his second career interception and added six tackles and 0.5 TFL at No. 23 NC State (10/6/18)... earned ACC Defensive Player of the Week with seven tackles, including three TFLs for 10 yards and a sack vs. Louisville (10/13/18) and added a blocked extra-point... totaled six tackled with a sack and 1.5 TFLs against No. 25 Miami (10/26/18)... recovered a fumble, totaled four tackles, two pass breakups and two quarterback hurries at Virginia Tech (11/3/18).

The Reason: They are always looking for OLB/DE to fit in their defense. Allen could line up all over their defense and hit the QB.

Key F.A. Lost:


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

They are still looking to replace Richard Sherman.

The Player: Polite is as quick and athletic as any rusher in this Draft. He also uses his explosive COD to get around blockers to the QB and RB. He is shorter than ideal, but it doesn't seem to hurt him in the speed rush. Arm length will be critical for him at the Combine. 

Overview: Finished his career with 78 tackles, 26.5 tackles-for-loss, 15.5 sacks, eight forced fumbles and four pass break ups in 32 games played… Became the fourth Gator in history with at least eight career forced fumbles, joining Clifford Charlton (15 –1984-87), Guss Scott (11 – 2000-03), and Alex Brown (9 – 1997-2001).

2018: Declared for the NFL Draft following the season… Appeared in all 13 games and started five… Recorded 45 tackles on the season and led the team with 17.5 TFL, 11 sacks and six forced fumbles… Led the FBS and tied Charlton’s 1986 single-season school record with six forced fumbles… One of two players in the country to record at least five forced fumbles and 10-plus sacks… Fell just 0.5 tackles-for-loss shy of tying Alex Brown’s 1999 season for the 10th-highest single-season total in school history.

The Reason: He is a perfect fit for this Defense. 

Second Choice: Byron Murphy CB

The Team: 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.   

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.  

The Player: Sweat is a top SEC rusher. He looked great against Alabama and at the Senior Bowl. He has a great first step in the rush, and can take one long stride that really gets the ORT out of position. He will line up inside in an Odd front, and can stunt behind the NT, and still hit the QB. 

CAREER: One of the most feared edge rushers in America, who makes his presence known in the backfield … Coming off a year in which he tied for the SEC lead in sacks and tackles for loss … Teams with Jeffery Simmons to become the first SEC Coaches First-Team duo to return the following year … Elected to return to MSU for his senior year following a dominant debut season and likely to be a high pick in the 2019 NFL Draft … Came to MSU as one of the top junior college pass rushers and played his freshman season at Michigan State … Enrolled at MSU in January 2017.
2017 JUNIOR SEASON: A first-team All-SEC selection in his first season, starting all 13 games … Played outside linebacker in the 3-4 and defensive end in the 4-3 … Joined Jeffery Simmons as the two became just the second duo in the SEC West since 2003 to both earn first-team All-SEC honors … Became the first Bulldog to lead the SEC in sacks since 2005 with 10.5 for a loss of 64 yards … Tied for eighth nationally in sacks … Also had 7.5 sacks in SEC only games, which tied for the league lead … Produced 11 games with at least 0.5 tackles for loss … Ranked seventh in MSU single-season history in sacks … The only player in the SEC to earn SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week honors three times (vs. Kentucky, Texas A&M, Arkansas) … Tied for the SEC lead in tackles for loss with the fifth-highest total in MSU single-season history (15.5)

The Reason: 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. 

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. 

Second Choice: Deebo Samuel WR
