Lets get to business. Of these listed guys, who and when would you take them... Hhhhmmmmmmm
Caleb Brantley, DT, Florida: Brantley was charged over the weekend with suspicion of misdemeanor battery for allegedly knocking a woman unconscious on April 13. He was once considered a potential first-round pick. With his legal situation looming large, it's likely that Brantley will slide to the late rounds or go undrafted.
Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan: Charlton carries a fairly high grade from yours truly, but his lack of consistent production at UM and average postseason workouts have hurt his draft standing. Charlton would have been well-served to compete at the Senior Bowl in January, but he opted to decline an invitation. Without a strong NFL Scouting Combine or pro-day performance in his back pocket, he might find himself as a fringe first-rounder now.
Jourdan Lewis, CB, Michigan: In another case of alleged domestic violence looming over a 2017 draft prospect, the former Michigan corner has gone from likely Day 2 selection (Rounds 2-3) to potentially going undrafted. Lewis faces a misdemeanor charge for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend last month. He pled not guilty at his arraignment last month. A jury trial is set for July 24 and three teams I've spoken with said they won't draft him with a trial date still in his future.
Takkarist McKinley, DE, UCLA: McKinley had surgery on his right shoulder in March to repair a torn labrum and fracture in his shoulder socket. The recovery time is typically 4-6 months. I've spoken with teams who believe he could be on the PUP list to start the season. McKinley's talent will likely land him in the first round, but it probably won't be as early as some have projected.
Tim Williams, OLB, Alabama: This one has become unanimous with NFL teams I've spoken to. Williams has first-round talent, but won't hear his name called in the first round and might not hear it called until Round Three. Williams has failed drug tests, was arrested for carrying a pistol without a permit last September and scouts say he has a difficult time adjusting to complicated defensive schemes. He has talent, but there are too many things working against him not to fall.
