Your Top 8 Priorities For Pick Number 18

Recommended Posts

Okay, here's the rules...

 

We'll assume these 10 players are certainly going to be gone by 18... Of course nothing is guaranteed in the draft, but for argument's sake, let's assume these 10 will be out of reach:

 

QB

Carson Wentz

Jared Goff

 

RB

Ezekiel Elliot

 

OL

Laremy Tunsil

Ronnie Stanley

 

DL

DeForest Buckner

 

Edge

Joey Bosa

 

LB

Myles Jack

 

DB

Jalen Ramsey

Vernon Hargreaves

 

So if these 10 are gone, if you rank your top prospects for our pick 1 - 8, we would be guaranteed to land at least one of them no matter what the 7 picks beforehand are. We would take the one left with your highest ranking, but you could definitely get someone on the list. 

 

Here is mine off the cuff, maybe I'll refine the list later:

 

1. Jack Conklin - really high on this guy's ability, I think he's got what it takes to be a plus player in the NFL as well as an immediate starter at guard or tackle.

2. Andrew Billings - is an impact player at NT, would be helpful in collapsing the pocket. 

3. Robert Nkemdiche - rare athlete, character issues are a concern.

4. Sheldon Rankins - my one hesitation is I'm not sure whether he's really a good scheme fit, but he might fit in some way and I think he's going to be a good player at the next level.

5. Ryan Kelly - warming up to the idea of taking a center in round 1, although I doubt Grigson would do that.

6. Vernon Butler - I like the guy's movement skill for his size, that's rare and you can't coach it. 

7. Taylor Decker - I'd be fine with Decker if the Colts staff likes him enough.

8. Noah Spence - Obviously concerns exist here on the character side, but he could wind up being the best (or at least one of the best) edge rushers in this (admittedly weak) draft.

I like your first pick, I also like Kelly. I haven't looked much into D.

aiight i'll play

 

1. Andrew Billings-Pretty much exactly what you said. Will help collapse the pocket along with fixing the run defense. Makes our Dline a strength on the team

2.Taylor Decker-Yeah I realize I probably overrate him a lot, but I really like this guy. He's big AND mobile, which tells me he'd do well in our ZBS scheme. Would solidify RT and would allow us to focus a bit more on D in the future.

3. Darron Lee-Still gotta do some research on him, but liking a lot of what i'm seeing so far from him. He's a good tackler and not bad at coverage at all. I think he could be a great leader on defense

4. Noah Spence-Used to absolutely love this guy and thought we HAD to take him at 18. His red flags have kinda turned me off though. Still a good player and easily the best PURE pass rusher in this draft.

5. Mackenzie Alexander-Would probably be higher if we hadn't had gotten Robinson, but having a stacked secondary certainly helps. People say he's overrated due to lack of picks and deflections, but that's cause no one throws to him

6. Jack Conklin- Not as high on him as other people (heck i'm probably the only one who'd take Decker over Conklin) but Jack is still good. He'd fix RT as well. (note if we select Conklin, we better get Allen as well so our line can have three Jacks)

7. Reggie Ragland- Kinda overrated (actually really overrated) but he's really great at tackling. Would fix the run defense immediately. Great instincts. Can compete right away. Just don't ask him to go into coverage.

8. Leonard Floyd- Another good pass rusher. But he still needs a lot of coaching. I think he has the potential to get to double digit sacks, just don't expect it year one.

    • Sure it matters.  Intent always matters in any action.  Its the major difference between Murder 1 and Manslaughter, for example.
    • Like always, injuries will help shape the final roster.....   Unfortunately.....
    • One thing is for certain this year (on paper so far) we are going to either lose a talent on WR, RB or TE depending on what direction they lean on. If we keep only 5 wr’s thinking that Hines is interchangeable, we lose out on either Fountain, Pascal, Johnson or Rogers. If we think keep 6 WR’s, we sacrifice that by going 3 rb’s and give up on Ware, Williams or Wilkins. And at TE, you risk a cut to either Cox, Travis or Hetges.    Now some of these guys could make it to the PS but not all of them. Highly unlikely we would run with 2 TE’s but if they view DF in a split type WR/TE role, anything is possible. Could either Williams or Wilkins make it to our PS, idk. Every time Wilkins runs the ball, he gets 5 yards it seems, you would have to think another teams seriously takes a look at that option and we all know how much praise CB has poured out on Williams RB abilities. As for the WR’s no way around it, we are going to lose a talent from this pool. Johnson, Pascal, Ishmail, Fountain, Hogan or Rogers, all of these have a talent ability to make several teams rosters and be an upgrade to several teams. DF better ball out at a 13 million product for us risking losing one of these young talents or some fans will never like DF regardless of what he does if he is just average and then off the team after this season. He would essentially become the teams flogging project if he isn’t a star imho. 
    • Watery eyes, runny nose, difficulty breathing... I must be allergic to reading stories like this...   Faith in humanity restored!  
    • It depends on how many out of the current group they feel they can safely keep on the practice squad. I think 4 is kind of crazy, but when you look at keeping a plethora of tight ends and maybe an extra runningback on active roster, you start factoring Ebron and Hines in as receivers more than tight end and runningback, as we will likely see those two split out more than in a traditional role. That's the beauty of versatility.
