Name a top 20 prospect you expect to be a bust


Recommended Posts

I'm gonna say Mekhi Becton OT.

 

I think it's great that he is so quick for someone his size but that's the thing too... he's already so massive at a young age. 

 

Typically players get bigger the older they get.

 

On the other end of the spectrum though i strongly believe Wirfs will be one of the best OT in this class.

I would say Jordan Love, but he isn’t a top 20 prospect in my eyes. As for someone in the top 20, I’ll go with Grant Delpit. He’s a decent prospect, but he has so many flaws IMO

Love will be the best QB in this class

The guy the jets pick

 

Like Jamal Adams? I'll take him on my team. I would take Darnold too. Neither are busts. Too early to tell for Quinnen Williams.

I would say Becton too.  And for the same reason.

However, since you already chose him, I'll say Brown because of his 3-cone time.

Either Epenesa or the guys that go to Cinci and Cleveland. 

Ohio is the black hole of NFL football. 

Epenesa will most likely fall to 2nd round. His combine was absolutely horrendous.

I'll name a few. Herbert (can't read defenses or coverages). Andrew Thomas (capped ceiling in a great OT class). CeeDee Lamb (I can see the NFL catching up to him. May not be as dominant. Curious how he'll adapt. Was used in a huge offensive program in college with two no1 overall picks at QB). Tua (Injury concerns. Can he play a full schedule when he barely played half that in college without getting hurt (team being ahead in blowouts and removed at halftime))? Javon Kinlaw (knee tendonitis. could it affect his play? Could it shorten his career)? A.J.Epenesa (Only fits in the right scheme. Poor combine, slow).

 

That's just part of the first round. Lot of holes in this draft. There will be a lot of busts as well.

    • I'd say divide everyone into two groups. Those who want a shot at the Colts, and those who want another team. If only one person wants another team, they get it. That way you at least have a few that are vested in non-Colts picking.   After you clear as many non-Colts folks as possible, do a lottery for everyone (lottery with team selection order).   Purely my opinion, but I think first come first serve hurts interest level. And I think it's important to try and be fair, but also match folks to a team they are interested in. 
    • I'm going to believe this tweet over the one you posted. Just seems too far out of character for Ballard to offer MORE than 15.5 per year for Watt.   Charles Robinson @CharlesRobinson Unless the #Colts, #Browns and #Titans are straight up lying, this is not what I’ve been told. I’ve been told by multiple Watt suitors that the $23 million guaranteed in Watt’s Arizona deal was near ceiling for their total $. Teams were trying to get Watt for roughly $12 mil per.
    • I agree but I’m starting to think it’s inevitable. Guard market is a little younger and cheaper in free agency. So we go that way or draft a guy that can start day 1. I would draft if him regardless of LT plans
    • My "in general" thoughts on Oke....  He's a great kid, hard worker, but average traits. He was a slightly above average ILB at Stanford. IMO, he was/is undersized for an ILB/MIKE. He was the best Stanford had to fill the middle, so I understand why they had him there. Stepping up to the NFL though is a challenge in the middle. He succeeded when his scope was limited to passing downs LB. He was given more snaps, and played earlier downs last year, and simply struggled. He's never really been a "fast processor" (like Leonard is), but his bigger issue IMO is simply vs the run, and especially in traffic. He's not been physical enough to shed a lot of blockers, and isn't fast enough processing or agility wise to avoid the blocking in the first place.   Maybe the game slows down for him in year 3? Maybe he picks up good weight and strength? IMO, he'd have to significantly improve in both those areas to grow into a 3 down guy. May sound simple, but it's a lot to ask though. If he can't, we need to look at going back to a MIKE by committee situation. I know it doesn't sound ideal, but the Walker/Oke combo in 2019 was pretty darn good. Both did well at their limited rolls. Walker was a tackle machine, and Oke did much much better focusing on the passing game. That said, the fly in the ointment though is the rip/liz stuff added to the D. I think that impacted a lot of guys in pass coverage including DBs and LBs. Good for some, bad for others. Year 3 will be interesting.   As far as FS, I'm cautiously optimistic there. Good the first half of the season when playing downhill vs what was in front of him. Very poor the second half when QBs started testing him. IMO, same weaknesses he had in college. He's a monster hitter, but get's burnt on the back end. I do think he can take a step forward this year so long as he's committed to re-working his game, and being more disciplined. That said, FS is a wildcard to me. And back to the rip/liz impact, if we continue to play more C3 single high, traits like Hooker's will be missed. 
    • In support of East Streets view...    what I’ve read about Williams since he joined the Giants is...   disappointment.  Underachiever.  And when his play started to tick up what I read was...    sure, he’s playing better now...   it’s his contract year.    Personally....   not a big fan of players like this...   Clowney too.   There’s a term for players like this....    coach killer.    They're paid to be great.   And they flash greatness from time to time.  It’s a tease.   But not nearly enough to be worth their money.   They’re paid on their reputation, but ultimately they rarely give you enough bang for the buck.    Pass.
