My thoughts at 42


Recommended Posts

Of course, these rankings have little to do with Ballard's board, but it's all I have to go with....

 

Obviously, if they trade out, this becomes moot. I studied 6 "Big Board" rankings. B/R, PFF, D. Jeremiah, CBS, Sporting News, and Walter's. I would like to start with the TE position. Here is where each had their first TE slotted. It is obviously not a high end year for talent at the TE position. Based on these rankings, I would guess that TE will not be the pick at #42.

 

NFL.com - #60

PFF.com - #60

B/report - #51

CBS.com - #72

SP/news - #42

Walter's - #64

 

I also rule out RB, QB. Edge is unique in that there are a lot of talent available between 35-48...but I don't see them going d-line again this draft early. Not because they are only drafting for need, but because those positions will lose out to those needed (If they're =, go with the need). 

 

Wr is kind of odd. I looked at trade value, and moving up 5 spots from the #42 spot to get "that WR" that might fall, is a 50 point jump. That is the exact value of our 4th rounder at #122. Do I think Ballard would give a 4th to move up 5 spots? Really doubting it....but let's look at it anyway. Here is the same sites and where they place WR from #37 - #42... One slot outside that is put in ( ). 

 

NFL.com - None

PFF.com - None

B/report - #41 Alec Pierce (#36  Justyn Ross.....#43 Khalil Shakir)

CBS.com - None

SP/news - #41 John Metchie

Walter's - None (#43 George Pickens)

 

OT is similar

 

NFL.com - #42 Tyler Smith (#43 Bernhard Raimann)

PFF.com - None

B/report - None

CBS.com - #40 Daniel Faalele

SP/news - None

Walter's - None (#36 Nick Petit-Frere)

 

IOL

 

NFL.com - None (#36 Kenyon Green)

PFF.com - None

B/report - #42 Kenyon Green

CBS.com - None

SP/news - #39 Zion Johnson

Walter's - None

 

 

DT

 

NFL.com - #37 Travis Jones

PFF.com - None

B/report - #39 Phidarian Mathis

CBS.com - None (#36 Devonte Wyatt)

SP/news - None

Walter's - #42 DeMarvin Leal

 

CB has a few more options.

 

NFL.com - None

PFF.com - #37 Daxton Hill

B/report - None

CBS.com - #37 Kyler Gordan

SP/news - #40 Jalen Pitre (#36 Roger McCreary)

Walter's - #37 Kaiir Elam, #40 Andrew Booth Jr.

 

 

NFL.com - #39 Lewis Cine

PFF.com - #41 Jalen Pitre (Also listed as a CB earlier)

B/report - None

CBS.com - #38 Kerby Joseph

SP/news - #38 Daxton Hill, #40 Jalen Pitre

Walter's - None

 

LB even more

 

NFL.com - #38 Christian Harris

PFF.com - None (#36 Leo Chenal)

B/report - #38 Devin Lloyd

CBS.com - #39 Chad Muma

SP/news - None (#43 Christian Harris)

Walter's - #39 Quay Walker

 

So in consensus, LB and EDGE are positions hitting their sweet spot between 36 and 48. We'll have to see what they do.......here is Edge to make my point...

 

NFL.com - None (#44 Nik Bonitto)

PFF.com - #38 Nik Bonitto (#43 Drake Jackson, #44 Josh Paschal)

B/report - #40 David Ojabo (#46 Drake Jackson)

CBS.com - #42 Jermaine Johnson (#44 David Ojabo, #45 Travon Walker, #46 Myjai Sanders)

SP/news - None

Walter's - #38 Logan Hall (#46 Drake Jackson)

Common sense says a WR or OL at 42. 

but I reallllly like Logan Hall --- pass rusher --- and Howell, the QB. I think the draftniks are sleeping on Howell and he could go a lot higher than they think...

At this rate, I would think we trade back, but if we don't I like at 42:

Tariq Woolen CB

Christian Watson WR

George Pickens WR

 

Other than that, I'd rather trade back at this point.

Agree.  At this point, my preference will likely be a trade-back unless my top pick is there, but my top 4 if we can’t trade are:

 

Christian Watson

Travis Jones

Kyler Gordon

George Pickens

Oh, Travis Jones is my 5th, and my trade down targets would be Abraham Lucas, Calvin Austin, and Skyy Moore...

Great analysis but this makes me think we will trade down for more picks ...

    • Coutee was a late waive (last cut day) by Houston that surprised a lot of folks, and we jumped on him quickly (I think it was around the time we knew TY would miss time). I don't mean necessarily that someone will grab him for a starter roll, but he'll get grabbed by someone (PS or 53). He's been in the league 4 seasons, but not sure he's met the accrued 4 year stipulation (weeks on 53). Strachan and Patmon both have a little film out there which will interest teams. Patmon has a bit of a rep for not being a my-ball guy, so that likely hurts him. Strachan is seen as raw with a high ceiling so teams are more likely to romanticize lol. All three would at least make it to a team, 53 or PS. But I think Strachan is the most likely claimed for a 53 spot. 
    • This happens every year with a late round pick. Fans go crazy and they wind up doing nothing. I just don’t get invested in that late of a draft pick because chances are slim they contribute.
    • Its not that Strachan was only a 7th round pick, so who cares?    Ballard and the scouts think they’ve uncovered a Diamond in the rough.   He’s 6’5” and 225 and runs 4.5.   And he played zero high level football until he came to the Colts.    Think of all of our draft video’s over the years where Ballard says we want traits, high level traits.   Those are things you can’t coach up.   And you can’t coach up 6’5” 225 and 4.5.   But we can coach up his ability to read defenses and the routes that he runs, and even his hands.   Those you can make better.    If you’re hung up on the round we drafted him in, think of it this way….  Had he gone to a Big Boy school like Georgia,  or Notre Dame, or USC, he likely would’ve been drafted higher.   The kid has raw talent.   We’ve given Patmon two years of polishing, odds are we’d like to give Strachan the same. 
    • I think they keep 6, and that Strachan makes the 53 man squad. As for Patmon, the guy looks like a TE these days. Been pumping that iron overtime. 
    • Probably more to do with the Colts and Chargers are fringe playoff teams that could be battling for the postseason that late in the year.  Should be a big game for seeding or possibly an actual playoff spot.
