Most Underappreciated Colt

I agree with this assessment of Willis but why does the Staff continue to believe he is the future?  It's clear to me that his strength is at the LOS and anything else he doesn't have the athleticism to compete.  This analysis came after just a rookie season, lets see if this kid shows us all wrong!

Same reason they said JB was "their guy" all the way up to signing Rivers (and drafting Eason).... 

Coach speak. I think Ballard has a tendency to "project" as well. I think he overshot on all the Banogu SAM talk, and this draft, I think he's oversold Blackmon has a FS. Purely my opinion though.

NONE of us ate the JB soup that was force fed to us by the staff but their actions of signing Rivers says they were wrong.  I cant argue with Ballards tendency to project as this is the most valuable trait known to a SCOUT but they will indeed overshoot more than hit.  Banugo looks like an airball and I think Ballard went for the homerun with Blackmon but only time will tell.

There were several that ate that soup, and asked for seconds lol...

 

 

I'm actually OK with Banogu, but I just don't like the fact that we've taken like 4 2nd and 3rd round DEs in the past 3 years (prior to 2020) and still had to go sign Houston. That's a lot of draft capital. Hoping Turay works out. Banogu is a total project. 

 

And I really like Blackmon. I think he'll end up as the SS though. Given the system he came from, and watching the film, I just don't see the range require for FS. I certainly could be wrong. I think he'll end up displacing Willis for at least passing downs.

 

But yes, time....

Nothing like throwing at the wall and seeing what sticks mentality!  I too question the many 2nd-3rd rd projects as I believe this far up in the draft should be more proven commodity than projects.  I'm not questioning Ballard and Staff but like you this isn't passing the eye test.  Let's hope these early rd picks squashes our eye test!

Hooker, AC, Smith Walker, all come to mind as under-rated players.  

 

AC would probably be my top pick though.  Guy just doesn't miss games.
