Tell me some of your favorite prospects for 2021


Recommended Posts

I'll be 100% honest with you guys I don't know near the amount of prospect this year as I have in the past 10 years. With the uncertainty at QB and not knowing what picks we would have I just  avoided looking into prospects plus the whole covid shortened season and guys opting out was just a mess to me. Now that we know what we have tell me some of your favorite prospects for the year. Early round guys mid and late so I can begin to binge some game film.

Payton Turner, DE Houston

Ifeatu Melifonwu, CB Syracuse

Tylan Wallace, WR Oklahoma State

Hamsah Nasirldeen, SAF Florida State 

Greg Newsome, CB Northwestern

Liam Eichenberg, OT Norte Dame

Jabril Cox, LB LSU

 

I'm a big fan of all these guys. I would add Jaelon Darden WR, North Texas, and Shaka Toney, DE PennState, Robert Rochell, CB. I think Dardon could be a good solution if Campbell can't stay healthy and I think Toney could be a good late round flyer on a potential undersized pass rush specialist. Robert Rochelle is a small school guy with all the physical traits Ballard loves.

The guy I really like will be long gone. Pitts from Florida. He's listed as a TE but he's really a big receiver and a huge mismatch anywhere on the field. Also like friemuth (sp), the TE from notre dame. Kadarious toney and nicole collins. And I like kyle trask. I just cannot  understand why he's rated so low. His pro day is going to be interesting.

Walker Little, LT Stanford.  6' 7" 320 LBs.  I could really see Ballard surprising everyone with this pick.  He was a heavily recruited 5 star tackle from Texas who went to Stanford.  At the start of the 2019 season he was projected to be an Outland Trophy Winner and a top 10 draft pick.  He injured a knee in the 1st game of 2019 and missed the entire season.  In 2020 he opted out to concentrate on preparing for the draft after declaring for it in Sept 2020.  I believe the Pac 12 eventually cancelled their season due to Covid.  He has not played in two years but was considered one of the top tackles in 2019 before his injury.  He is the classic under the radar player who could turn out to be a real stud when he takes the field.

I think Little played in roughly 20 games,  with about 12-14 as actual starts over his time.    So, he has very little actual tape to grade.    Anyone drafting him will be working on mostly projection.    What might he be someday?    His medical reports will be HUGE for him.   Still,  I find it hard to see him going in the first round now unless he tests shockingly well in the next two months.

 

So, I see him more likely to be picked in the 2nd round...   or even the top of the 3rd if something doesn't go well (medical reports or athletic testing)    A real boom or possible bust for the team willing to gamble.    I hope we can grab him at pick 54,  but I'm not holding my breath.    He could easily be grabbed before that.   Or not.   He's a risk on a number of levels.

If the Colts go OT in the first,  then Turner is high on my wish list for our 2nd round pick.  

 

From what I read,  he has lots of the traits that Ballard values.    I think there's a good match for Turner and the Colts.

Appreciate you including the school and the position along with the name.   Too many posters here don’t do that.   They just give a name. 
 

Thanks.....      :thmup:

Yeah I finally got around to watching the tape and he definitely jumps out. I also thought about taking him in the 2nd. As you said, it’s a perfect match. Especially if Melifonwu (who is also a perfect match) is gone.

If we could land Eichenberg (Q's future left side partner) in the 2nd round, that'd be awesome.  This guy would step right in to the left talk spot and he and Nelson would dominate for YEARS to come!
