McShay's Latest Mock: Eli Harold OLB Virginia.


Recommended Posts

I want some of our super scouts to tell me why I want this guy at 29.  I look at the film and see good use of arms extended, yet slow to shed blockers.  Also concerned about another player on the Colts that cannot set the edge.

 

I will go BPA DT or OL at this pick, if not I am going to throw out RB or safety.  I want a big up front on D....

I will add the rest of McShay's mock here too.

I've been scouting him recently, and he's alright.

 

He is forsure a project with potential to be a GREAT role player, edge setter, and good (enough) pass rusher. He needs to add strength and some bulk to be very successful. I'd trade back and consider him, but I don't like him at 29.

We have way too many OLB's to be drafting one in the first round.

Not really. Only two pass rushers on the roster and both are near the end.

Oops, forgot about Newsome, but he is far from a sure thing.

I agree....I do like his athleticism, but we really do not need another 'raw' pick.  Especially in the 1st round.   :thmup:

The better pick would be Marcus Peters the CB from Washington.  This would give us 2 shut down corners

McShay shows him available.  I don't want to make the Good Doctor Mad, but everything depends on the 3 picks in front of us....Detroit, Pittsbirgh, and Dallas.  The three best bigs besides Leonard Williams are eaking soooo close to the Colts.  Malcom Brown, Arik Armstead, and Eddie Goldman....if these guys are gone, we may go with Peters.  

 

I hope we do not go RB with this pick due to BPA......Please :)

With Mathis, Cole, Walden, Werner, and Newsome, there is absolutely no playing time for another OLB so to draft one in the first round is ridiculous.. especially with the fact that Cam Johnson and Adongo still show promise.

Cole & Mathis: old

Werner: bust

Walden: pass rush is not his strong point

Newsome: potential, but that's about it

Johnson and Adongo: have shown next to nothing

drafting a pass rusher would be far from ridiculous

You draft for beyond year 1.

I wouldn't care if we drafted a pass rusher but I find it ridiculous to draft a 1st round OLB who would only be on the practice squad.

No player draft before the 6th round would ever hit the PS.

Then I see it highly unlikely that we draft one in the first round because they probably haven't given up on Werner and they would have cut Walden already with everybody else we have.

No they wouldn't. We can roster all of them. Just cut Cam Johnson.

And then there's the possibility that Mathis starts the year on the PUP list. 

 

There's zero possibility that anyone drafted in the first round winds up on the practice squad.

    • We shall see. I think if he does anything close to what Lewis did last year he will stick. Lewis wasnt incredible but he did show the tools they thought he had when they drafted him. We need that same thing from Banogou this year or its probably curtains.
    • And as announcers have said, at home we swept, Mets, Dodgers, Padres, and Cardinals. Need reds to be help this week against brewers    And tomorrow starts a series with the Mets in NY. @NFLfan are you going to go to any of them? I saw the tickets were cheap.    I am going to the Marlins Cards game on Tuesday, close to home, in the second section from home. Will be my 5th game there this season. 7th overall   And will give a recap of AZ tomorrow, since I got back   
    • Agree with most of this, but Tannehill's accuracy was never really an issue. Those Miami teams he played for were just bad lol. Some horrible OLs. They finally started building the team correctly, and even Fitzmagic looked good.   Looks like TN is going all-in a bit for the next couple years, so wouldn't be surprised to see their O ask more from Tannehill. Running the wheels off Henry will only get you so far.
    • I wasn't big on landing Wentz but having said that sometimes a change of scenery can change a QB's career. Get with the right team = great run game, good coach than many things can change. There wasn't anyone that ever mentioned Ryan Tannehill as a top 15 QB when he played for the Dolphins, he was considered average by most and many Dolphins fans thought he was bad. Look at him in Tennessee though with Henry and better coaching. He went from average at best to good in most peoples minds. His accuracy is a lot better in Tennessee and with Henry being the focal point that allows Tannehill to make less mistakes and use play action effectively.    In reality, Wentz even has more physical tools than Tannehill has.
