What's also so great about this pick is, is that it leaves us in position to take almost any other player we want tomorrow. Even Nick Martin can play Guard. We can literally go BPA at 48 and not have to worry about taking doubles at a position. Whitehair might be available and we can get the best Guard in the draft along with the best Center. We can get Spriggs if we wanted at Tackle. McKensie Alexander at CB, Andrew Billings at DT, Kevin Dodd at DE, Myles Jack or Jaylon Smith if we choose at ILB, Kamalei Correa at OLB. That's 8 options right there and only 1 of them has to fall to 48. Going to be an exciting day 2, especially in round 2!
Unfortunately, our 2 and our 4 will not get us the 33rd pick. Not even close.
Our 4 is worth 62 points. That moves us up only 6 spots. From 48 to 42. That's all.
If you want to go to the top of the round, you have to give up our 3. Do you REALLY want to do that?
I sure don't.......
I wouldn't be surprised to see them still add Whitehair or Seumalo to compete with or Replace Thornton for that Guard position. Probably more like Seumalo because I think they are probably looking for somebody that is a really solid player that can sit behind Thornton, while also being able to take over the position if necessary. I suppose you could go with Whitehair, but Thornton won't have much room for error until Whitehair takes that over. Plus I think Whitehair will be gone by our pick at 48.
Definitely, my grandfather lived in Baltimore for a while and grew up watching him. He still pulled for Indy but always referred to them as Baltimore. I wasn't allowed to say the name Irsay in my house. The game sure has changed. I wish I could go back in time when players didn't get flagged for breathing on a player and defenses were actually feared by offenses.
