It's just an example, we had Money and edge free agents, TB with no money resign Barret. Those types of "no movement" is something that I don't like. Remember when we wasted some Manning years with horrible defenses? Yes, sometimes agressive FA pays up.
Lawson was a example. Expect turay and Lewis to have breakout years is hope, not plan.
I hope so
I do think as you get later and later on the LT spot, the more likely they arent going to be ready for day 1
I do think that Eichenberg MIGHT be there
As well as Leatherwood, and Christianson (BYU)
Eichenberg may be the most ready for NFL (Day one), but
All 3 may need some polish before they start at LT
At 21: Radunz is my favorite option to get the most important need filled right away with a stud OT. I love his game, he's got some nasty to him and good feet, moves really well in space too he's my kind of OT. Rankings are all over the place but this guy probably won't make round 2 and he's my favorite OT in this class. Need plus value here IMO.
At 54: Friermuth is my favorite TE in this class. Now I realize everything's about measurables and athleticism and everyone's swooning over Pitts who is a fine prospect. But guys like Friermuth who bring a safe target across the middle that DBs will bounce off of offer a lot of value to your QB. When this guy gets the ball in the secondary you can see the DBs hate taking him on. Guys like that can have a wear down effect on a secondary which will always have value even in an age where speed is more valued than ever. This would be need plus value as well.
At 127: Amari Rodgers is going to be a fine slot receiver in this league. Teams will feel him right away too. Good chance he goes off the board before this point but him being in play here is a testament to the depth of this class, which means there are other options to finish up your WR room with this pick no matter how this draft goes down.
CB and WR have multiple guys I like in rounds 3 and 4, as both groups are very deep. I think from an efficiency perspective getting those two rooms some help makes sense in those rounds.
