The Team: The Cards did a great job chocking-off the season so they get the First pick. Now they have to do something about it. They also did a good job getting their rookie QB some playing time, and let him get accustom to playing in the NFL. So they could look for a weapon here. 

But the top two players in this Draft are DLs: one inside Williams, and one outside Bosa. I think they need help on the D-line both inside and outside. So either one is an easy option. However, Williams could fill in a DT and NT for this defense, and maybe even some 5-Tech if they want to go that way. No one got to the QB faster than Williams last season, period. 

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: He reminds me more of Aaron Donald when he was at Syracuse than any player I have seen since. He burst up into the backfield as quick and fast as Ed Oliver, only like Donald, he finds the ball carrier. No one got to the QB quicker than Williams in this Draft. No one got to the RB quicker on inside runs in this Draft than Williams. Donald did it for a few years, and Williams was a one-year wonder. He has to prove he can as durable as Donald. But if you want a guy to hit and Sack the QB, Williams got there faster in 2018 than Bosa ever did.

"He’s a lot different than the other guys," Saban said. "The other guys that have played that position have been big power guys and don’t have a lot of range. This guy has got a lot of range and he’s really slippery."

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: Quinnen has declared, Rs-Soph rarely do, but this year it seemed they all did. He was the best DL all season long. I just can't see how the Cards 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.

The Team: The 49ers did great. They hit a winning streak that can only help them next year. They could certainly use some weapon to help poor Jimmy-G, but they will take whatever leftover super impact DL is left after the Cards pick. And there are impact RBs and WRs all over the 2nd and 3rd Rounds. 

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: In this scenario they get the guy they want, Bosa, is on the Board. They need an Edge guy, and are really a little overloaded with inside DLs. If Bosa is gone they will likely trade out of this pick by trying to hock Haskins to the highest bidder. They might do that anyway. Because they really need some guys to help their QB, and will have no trouble finding an EDGE guy five, ten, or fifteen picks down the line.

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:).

Read the books that Support this Website. As thousands of fans have already done and enjoyed.

The Team: The Jets are another team that did a great job choking off the season to move up into the Top Three. And like the 49ers they could use some impact players on offense, especially OLs. And like the 49ers they have to get some weapons for their young QB. Getting an extra 2nd and 3rd, could be four young impact players on offense to save their young QB: 2 WR, and an RB, and an OL or two. 

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. Williams and Allen are the two fastest guys to the QB in this Draft. 

The Reason: I gave them Allen last month when they were still trying to win, and had the 8th Pick. So why change now New Jersey Fans?

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.

The Team: This is a tough call. They should go QB here, but I don't think Gruden is a  Haskins guy. They took three DLs last year, but damn! 13 Sacks on the season! That is pitiful. Ferrell is the rusher I seem to have rated higher than most. I don't know what Tape the others are watching. 

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: 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: They can take a top passrusher here, and cover other needs later.

The Team: Another team that choked their season to death. They went from pick 11 to pick 5 in about a month. That's just sad. 

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: 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. 

2018: Won the Ted Hendricks Award, awarded to the nation’s top defensive end … Bednarik Award semifinalist … consensus first-team All-American, earning selections by AFCA, AP, Sporting News and Walter Camp … with the AP selection, became Clemson’s first two-time, first-team AP All-American since Terry Kinard in 1981-82 … ACC Defensive Player of the Year … first-team All-ACC … unanimous first-team AP All-ACC selection and earned AP ACC Defensive Player of the Year…voted as a permanent team captain … credited with 53 tackles (19.5 for loss), 11.5 sacks, four pass breakups, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries including one recovered for a touchdown in 691 snaps in 15 games (all starts).

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.

The Team: Giants took an RB in last years Draft. Now they need a QB. This is a tough pick. Haskins is a spread QB, like Goff. The team that takes him will have to change their offense completely for him, like the Rams did with Goff. He has to be drafted by an HC who was an OC. 

The Player: Haskins might be the best QB in this Draft. But damn he is young. He is also a one-year wonder, and the least experienced QB in this Draft. That math usually doesn't work well. He also is a Spread-QB who had half-field reads most of the time at Ohio ST (all of the time?). He reminds me of Goff (who was also a half-field guy). The team that Draft's him is going to have to runt he Rams offense. If they don't want to get fired? 

The Reason: Shurmur was an OC before he became an HC. If they don't take a QB again, it will be more tragic than funny. However, Shurmur was an OC before he became an HC. So this could work out nicely for the Giants if they can keep the exceedingly young Haskins on the bench. 

Second Choice: Not Much.

Key Free Lost

 

The Team: They have committed completely to getting a new QB. If they don't get a QB in free agency than they will be stuck picking in this Draft. This Draft is really full of Day Two QBs. They will get pumped up because they are QBs, but this is the worst QB Draft in a long while. 

The Player: Murray is another one year wonder who is woefully inexperienced. Pretty much everything I wrote about Haskins is the same. He is not Baker Mayfield. He is at least two inches shorter than Mayfield. Mayfield also was a starter for four season and redshirted one. He was the most experienced QB coming out last year. And I didn't like Mayfield last year either. I though he was too small. 

"It’s hard to play outside the pocket in the NFL. It’s hard to last in your career playing that way. We’ve seen that. If he’s under 200 pounds, it’s hard to last in your career that way," Bill Polian said. "The way offense is now played probably negates the height issue somewhat. But Drew [Brees] is 6 feet. Russell is probably 5-11. If he’s 5-9, that’s a different kettle of fish."

Mayfield was listed as three inches taller than Murray on the OK Bio, and 25-pounds heavier. Murray was the most electric QB in college football last season. But he also played behind the best O-line if college football last season. He is another guy who is going to have to have the offense changed completely for him. 

"We need accurate height, weight, hand size," Polian said. "The height matters. And the thickness matters. Your comparison is Russell Wilson. If he’s shorter than Russell Wilson [he is], that would give people pause. But he’s a much better passer and he’s probably faster as a runner than the kid in Baltimore. So if the height and the weight check out, you’re at least talking about somewhere in there, late first round to early second round. That’s where [Jackson] went."

Doug Marrone was an offensive guy in the NFL. He was an assist head coach twice, and was the O-line Coach as well both times, and not necessarily the O-Coordinator (it's a mystery;). So he was is sort of an OC-HC guy. Like Haskins, he has to play for an OC-HC who can build the offense around him and his strengths. 

"You’re talking about having to try to find entirely different passing lanes and windows in the NFL. In the spread offense in college, things are different," Polian said. "Everything is all spread out, and the passing windows are different. But he’s really fast. He’s a shifty runner. He can really throw the ball. The passing skills are exemplary. He’s accurate. There’s a lot to like. The answer is: stay tuned."

Murray has to play for an OC-HC, because he cannot play in a conventional NFL drop-back offense. Everything (even more than Haskins, who has more conventional NFL size and played in the pocket more at Ohio ST) has to be changed for him to succeed in a Goff-like offense. 

So if Marrone can put his old school biases behind him (unlikely), this could work out well for everybody. If they take him, Marrone has to commit to more run-and-shot and spread schemes. Having him five step and sit in the pocket and throw over the O-line and D-line is not going to work. He has to rollout and throw on the edges with have the half-field reads to find lanes to throw and run through. 

Plus, I no longer like Murray, because he made me agree with Bill Friggin' Polian. "That’s a huge if," Polian said. "I don’t think playing the quarterback position you can play two sports. You just can’t. It starts with the commitment. The entire conversation starts with that. If he wants to play both, that’s a very poor risk." Biggest risk in the Draft. 

The Reason: They have to move on from Bortles. However, Marrone is more of an old school coach. Se he likely will be voting against this pick. So we will see how much say he has in this process.

The Team: They have to go DB early to help their defense. Their back seven was their weakness area as a team last season. They were finally able to draft some good DLs and LBs the last two years. Now Patricia has to sure up the secondary. As a group their record was terrible because of their defensive talent. They have to talent-up the D. 

The need for a rusher was desperate last year, and could be even more so if Ansah leaves. Either way this is just too perfect a fit to happen. 

The Player: 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. 

He has the size to stop the big WRs, and the speed and quicks to run with the quickest and fastest small WRs. He stays and plays as low as the tiny spread WRs outside. He has a knack for when to hop back, turn, and when to stand in the way and take the WR out of his pattern. Ignores the run a lot, as he stays locked on the WR. 

The Reason: As a group, they only had a pathetic 7 INTs on the season. I mean as a whole, their entire defense had 7 INTs. Greedy Williams has that knack for getting his hands on the ball for INTs. 

HCs that used to be D-Coordinators want defensive players in the 1st.

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 Draft 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 and East Carolina couldn't do anything to stop him. When the QB had the ball after two seconds Oliver hit him. 

He hurt himself in that game (ankle I think). I think he should pull a Bosa and start preparing for the Draft (which he did). He has nothing left to prove at Houston. But he is such a high character kid that he might try and comeback and finish out the season (he didn't). East Carolina was his best game of the season, and he shut it down after that game for the Draft. 

Oliver is marked by his unrelenting attack on the QB. "He’s just so good you have to look at him schematically and think of ways to try and account for him," Niumatalolo said. "He's that dynamic and that disruptive." He is pure explosion up field. 
He got into the backfield faster and more consistently than anyone in this Draft. "He’s a great football player, and there are going to be a lot of different schemes that he’s going to face this season," HC Applewhite said. "He’s going to get everything from snap count, to perimeter runs, trap blocks and double teams and triple teams. He’s going to see it all." He gets into the backfield so fast that he struggles to find he ball.
East Carolina completely changed their offense to have the QB throw the ball outside in less than two second every snap. “He has a unique skill set. You don’t get a chance to see these guys but maybe once every 10 years," ECU HC Montgomery said. "The ultimate respect for a player like Ed is knowing that offenses are spending multiple hours on trying to find different ways to slow him down in the run game, in the pass game. It’s not as simple as putting two and three [blockers] on him. It’s about strategic details, being able to adjust and adapt." He is a top five pick. 

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: I don't see it with this kid in the 1st. I think it is ridiculous to draft an ORT in the 1st. But if their is one team that needs an ORT in the 1st it is Denver. 

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: Taylor played better this season. I don't see it though. He is a solid Day Two ORT, but guys have been building him up as a top ten OL in the 1st. However, he would definitely help the Broncos. 

2018: Declared for the NFL Draft following the season… Played in all 13 games and started 12 at right tackle… Florida's offensive line allowed just 18 sacks over the course of the entire season, which ranked 20th in the country and third among SEC teams… Garnered Second Team All-SEC honors from Athlon Sports… Named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll

The Reason: Flacco ain't gettin' any younger.

The Team: I'm not a big fan of taking an ILB in the First. However, White is one of the hottest prospects right now and we all know the Bengals have needed ILB for years. Getting a guy who can lead the D for Patricia would be a big deal for him and his Defense. 

The Player: White is the prototype Mike. He is a Mike Singletary type ILB. He is not only a sideline to sidelined tackler, but he can run a defense like Mike. The most interesting aspect of his game is that when eh got injured the LSU got all disheveled. They couldn't get someone on the field to set up the defense. They lost, because they lost their leader on defense. When he came back the D was put back together again. 

The Reason: They need a leader on Defense, who isn't a nut job. A guy who can turn into a great leader to keep their D together, and not tear it apart at the worst possible moments. 

I still think they need an OLT. 

Second Choice: Jonah Williams OT
