Some "Experts" Thoughts on our Draft

Recommended Posts

I've read a time or two now that some pundits "think" that our first 4 picks could start for us this year.

 

So Rock at CB over whom? Desir, Wilson or Moore?

 

Banogu is easy as he'll likely be the SAM and a designated rusher.

 

Okereke would likely have to beat out Walker for the MIKE position, which he comes in as a higher pick and better measurables, but, can he call the defense?

 

Campbell is easy as well as he'll likely start as the slot receiver on day one.

 

If this happens and makes any of Desir, Wilson, Moore II, Adams or Walker back-up/depth pieces then we're in great shape defensively in my opinion!

 

Additionally, the 8 position players that were drafted the average RAS Score is 8.225. That is amazing athletic ability added across the board!

Wilson has the best chance at being a backup. Moore is a dog so I don’t see anyone beating him out right now. They would have to be very good.

Just thinking about this... Since DL already has a year in the system, do you think it's possible they move him to MIKE, and let him call the defense, and give Okereke the WILL spot? I think Darius could be a heckuva MIKE in our system too.

It's crazy to me that even though he's going into in his 3rd NFL season, & after drafting Ya Sin & Tell, Quincy Wilson is still the youngest corner on our roster.

Rock Ya-Sin: May 23, 1996 (age 22 years)
Marvell Tell III: August 2, 1996 (age 22 years)
Quincy Wilson: August 16, 1996 (age 22 years)

That is crazy. He probably should of stayed in college another year.

I mean it's possible. As I recall in the nickel they essentially do the same thing? In the base 4-3 the roles are different though.

 

I'm sure the staff will find ways to get 3 guys on the field at LB with 4.5, 4.58 and 4.6 flat 40 times.....

I will say we will be in great shape if guys that played a ton of snaps like Wilson end up being backups.

The 2 years experience that he already has at the NFL level will likely end up being far more valuable than playing 1 more year at Florida, especially 2 years from now when he's up for a new contract.

I wouldn’t be so quick to kick Walker out of the starting lineup. Dude was pretty darn good last year.

No one's beating out Walker for anything. He's too good. Because people are playing more nickel and dime than ever before, there'll be plenty of playing time for Ya-Sin, Marvell Tell III, etc. 

 

And all the Times that we play a base package with 3 linebackers, that's when Okereke and others can come in the picture.

 

Plenty of playing time for everyone

In some packages  Walker Leonard  and okereke could be on the field at the same time

Interesting that you think some of these are easy....

 

I'm not sure any of our rookies will START on Day 1.

 

Rock?     I don't see it.

 

Banogu?      Don't see it.

 

Campbell?      Hilton and Funchess,  I don't see it.   

 

Okereke?      He's a LONG way from starting.

 

I think these guys will start,  someday down the road.   Maybe next year.    Or, if the starter gets hurt this year.     But this year,  I think all our guys are depth or practice squad.

 

And I'm not down on our class at all.   They will play,  they will contribute,  but I don't see anyone starting and certainly not Day 1.

With Banogu and Campbell I meant they will be holding a specific position as SAM and Slot and consider those starters even though they may be specialized spots....

 

Rock and Okereke will certainly have a tougher hill to climb for sure.

Injuries happen at times during the year. Every year.  I am pretty sure these 4 will get on the field at some point.  They just won’t be day 1 starters.

I think this one is pretty straightforward.

 

Rock and Desir at CB.

 

Moore at the Nickel, where he excels and can be utilized as a blitzer.

 

Wilson will be the Dime.

    • I think there is a very high chance Love is there at the middle pick. We could move up for Herbert trading our 1st and one of our seconds. We have the capital to do whatever we want.    I'd say Love, Herbert, Eason, and maybe Hurtz has much higher upside than JB, and is much farther along at this stage than JB was his last year in college. 
    • Some other things I've read lead me to believe their scheme doesn't ask for a lot of pre snap ID, which is counter to some of the reviews. It's on my list to check out. IIRC, the scheme is closer to a Chud scheme than a Reich scheme, but I could be mis-remembering. If that's the case, I can understand his greeness in that area.
    • I am surprised at the lack of football knowledge exhibited by some people on here.  How long will you make excuses for Brissett?  I said before the season, and check my posts, that Brissett is a mediocre QB at best who will never get better.  Why do I say this?  First of all, I am coming from a coaching perspective as I have coached for over 15 years.   Brissett only has success when a strong running game sets up play action and wide open receivers.  When a receiver is challenged, Brissett almost always avoids throwing the ball.  He locks onto his first read and if that player isn't open, he looks to check down.  He holds the ball far too long.  He is very inaccurate on plays where accuracy is most apparent.  Remember, even 3rd string QBs in the NFL can usually hit wide open receivers.  He seems like a really good person and people like him.  But to give him another year as starting QB, I would expect pretty much the same thing next year.  And that is just another year of wasted talent around him.  Now, the problem is, I don't know if there is a better option coming out of college considering where we draft.  And there are no free agents worth signing.  I would actually rather have a combination of Nick Foles as a bridge QB with a developmental QB then another year of Brissett.
    • Honestly I've not done enough research to say who I like best right now. My uninformed gut says Burrow, Love, Herbert, Tua, Eason, Hurtz in that order. I think it will likely end up being Burrow, Herbert, Love, Eason, Tua, Hurtz, but that's just a guess. I've seen enough of Fromm (live and TV) to know I don't like him. The injury history with Tua probably rules him out as well. Cinci is going to take Burrow, so he's out. So really it'll likely come down to Love and Herbert, with maybe Eason. We'll see.    I'm in the research mode right now. After I'm done reading up on their scheme, supporting rosters, reviews, stats, etc.. I'll start watching film over the holidays. I'll likely post stuff along the way. Individual stuff at first, then some comparative. 
    • Fans wills always go ballistic . If that is the case who in this draft will be there with our pick is the bigger question . I dont see any instant surefire starters that will be around and the cost to move to the top of the draft will be enormous. Why I see Brisket starting with a qb being groomed a year or waiting for the next draft loaded with qb talent .
