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.

    • They have a replacement in Okafor for Davis. Both him and Randle played well down the stretch while Davis was out. Randle is a guy I would potentially look at as well. With NO obviously going after Zion, Randle has already turned down his player option and is a FA. If Thad turns is no longer and option, I think Randle would be a good fill in at PF for the Pacers. 24 years old and averaged 21 and 9 playing off the bench half of the year last year.    It would be nice to unload McDermitt's contract and put that extra 7.5M/yr elsewhere.    As I said earlier in the thread, we have quite a few holes to fill on a capped budget and I wouldn't be surprised if some of these guys (Thad, Bogy, CJ) decline offers from the Pacers and move on. 
    • I think you will see another WR drafted....or a TE. Funchess will likely be gone...Hilton is a year older. Even if Cain and Campbell are both what they hoped for...there is still room to develop another Day Two pick at the position. We will see though.
    • Agree. It's just the logic that gets me. It's wishful thinking (or homerism) to think that Foles doesn't impvoe a Blake Bortles-led offense.   And had Luck not come back healthy...I would bet there is a pretty decent chance that Foles is a Colt. But I am grateful that he did.
    • Interesting. The Colts are #1...but the LAR are #2. Two distinct roster building styles.   I think SF gets a bit slighted here. They have a great HC and a young QB who was lighting it up before getting hurt. He should be able to return just fine...and they have a ton of young talent and cap space.   Honestly, NO has a lot of young talent..but an older QB.   "Set up for the future" doesn't really mean as much in the NFL as it does other sports...unless you are Patriots (and the future doesn't really seem to matter). But it's a better place to be than not.
    • i don't get the Foles hate..... I think Brissett is a decent QB and deserves a chance, but I'm not afraid of letting him go.
