Receivers and Tight Ends

Wide Receiver:

Amari Cooper (1)
Kevin White (1)
DeVante Parker (1)
Phillip Dorset (1) – IN the right offense, coach, and QB he could give you a ton, and also a good punt returner. In the wrong system could be a complete bust.
Breshad Perriman (1)
Nelson Agholor (1-2) I put Agholor over beckham becaused beckham hasn’t played in 2 years and big receivers that can field punts like Agholor are rare.
Dorial Green-Beckham (1-2)
Devin Smith (2) –  The one thing that stands out about him is you never see him drop a ball and he has an UNCANNY ability to track down and catch deep balls. Theres a spot in the NFL for guys like him but he’s also sorta a boom or bust pick because he does nothing else other than catch bombs.
Rashad Greene (2) – Kinda like a poor mans Devante Parker
Jaelen Strong (3) – Already covered him.
Sammie Coates 4 He will drop an occassional ball but is athletic enough to give you some big plays. However, I just can’t picture him ever being a starting receiver in the NFL and I’m not gonna spend .more than a 3rd round pick on someone I cant see starting right away
Devin Funchess If he were a bit faster he’d be a first round pick. Could be a great value in round 4-5.
Tight Ends
Maxx Williams (1-2) – This is the most complete tight end I’ve seen in some time. He can REALLY REALLY block and catch too.  He doesn’t seem like the greatest athlete but not bad. If you really need a tight end I’d take him in round 1 if not probably round 2-3
Clive Walford 4-5: Nice body but not a real instinctive blocker. Inconsistent hands
Jesse James* 4-7: Not enough tape to see him blocking but the QB favors him in the passing game which tells you something
MyCole Pruitt* udfa – Has too much of a lag and windup from when he decides to do something and when he does it.
*Only one game available

Defensive ends and rush linebackers

Owamagbe Odighizuwa (1-2) – easily the best pass rusher in the draft. He’s not a 3-4 OLB, he’s strictly a 4-3 DE.
Randy Gregory (1) – not a 4-3 DE.  STrictly a 3-4 LB
Trey Flowers (2-3) – easily the most productive 4-3 end in the draft. Stricctly a 4-3 DE..
Shane Ray (1)
Alvin Dupree (1)
Danielle Hunter* round 4- developmental –
Nate Orchard round  4 – developmental
Arik Armstead (1) – 3-4 DE – this guy is a 3-4 DE or 4-3 DT, should be grouped with defensive tackles.
Preston Smith (2) – 3-4 DE – this guy is a 3-4 DE or 4-3 DT, shoudl be grouped with defensive tackles.
OLB – Name, Scheme (Projection) :
Dante Fowler Jr (1)
Vic Beasley (1)
Eli Harold (1-2)
Lorenzo Mauldin (2-3)seems about right
Kwon Alexander (3) – this guy is playing a 4-3 OLB.  He seems talented but hes not a DE.
Hau’oli Kikaha (3) -Could be really good. The most relentless high effort guy in the draft but not the most fluid. Also not sure he has the length to get around blocks in the NFL.  Definitely worth a 4th rounder though cuz if nothing else he’d help your special teams.
Davis Tull (3-4) – seems about right but he’s a DE not a OLB

Offensive Line

Pure Left Tackles
DJ Humphries (FL) – Long arms, good athlete. Best natural left tackle so far. Can probably start at left tackle day 1.
Cedric Ogbuehi (A&M) Is right there with Humphries for top natural day 1 left tackle.
Right Tackle/left tackle??
Andrus Peat (Stanford)- Ultra long arms and massive man. Damn good run blocker. I would say he’s most likely of all these guys to be a pro bowler i’m just not sure it’s at left tackle. My initial thought when I saw him he made me think of John Runyan who probably had more pancakes then any player in NFL history.
Ereck Flowers (Miami)- like his attitude and run blocking. Is he long enought to play left tackle? Looks more like a natural right tackle to me. Could start at guard as well. Will maul people but will get beat around the edge occassionally
Jake Fisher*** – (Oregon) Excellent utility developmental prospect.  Nice athleticism. Could start at any position on the line and excel.
La’el Collins (LSU) (also listed at guard) – I dont think he’s a day 1 starter at left tackle but can probably develop into a good starter at any position on the oline other than center. Is a step less athletic than the other guys on this list.
TJ Clemmings (pitt) – An octave less athletic than the other guys.  Massive kid. Developmental prospect. I probably wouldn’t mess with him before round 4.
Brandon Scherf:  A slightly more physical version of Jake Fisher. Can play at a high level at any position on the line.
Laken Tomlinson – Good quickness and good athlete but probably a 3rd-4th round type prospect.  Could develop into a starter but is not as good run blocking as some of the tackle prospects…solid but not spectacular.
Arie Kouandijo – massive run blocker will likely struggle in pass protection. Not sure how bad of an issue that would be but he can definitely run block.
AJ Cann (South carolina) – Big man but not all that athletic. More of a waist bender doesn’t use hands all that well. Good prospect but probably more of a late day 3 or undrafted type guy
Josue Matias (FSU)- Similar to Cann
Tre Jackson – don’t really see it with this guy. Is fairly uncoordinated and not very physical. More of an undrafted prospect type guy.
Hroniss Grasu*** – Definitely a good center prospect. Good technique, good hands, good feet. Plays textbook and bends his knees. Better quickness than pure speed.
Cameron Erving*** – He plays left tackle at FSU so it’s hard to evaluate him as a center. To me he’s a good utility player but I dont see him in the same ballpark as Grasu at center.
Reese Dismukes – Physical redheaded white boy. Has some slight waist bending qualities which you don’t want in a center, but decent mid to late round prospect.
Guys I would target:
Jake Fisher: 2nd best utility player behind Scherff. I love Scherff but not at top 10 in the draft. With Fisher you could get mostly the same player as Scherff a full round later.
Hroniss Grasu: Elite center prospect could start at guard as well and play at a high level.


Here is how I would rank them:
1. Jameis Winston
2.  Mariota?? (he doesn’t have the right instinctual mental makeup but his athleticism and dedication might be able to make up for it).
3. Bryce Petty (I’m not sure about his accuracy but everything else looks good)
4. Sean Mannion – (Very very accurate arm – goes thru his reads well.  I’d never heard of him til now. What happened to him in 2014? His biggest liability is he can’t move)
5. Brandon Bridge – (Decent athlete.  Love the way the ball comes out of his hand)
6. Anthony Boone (he will have good knowledggeof nfl schemes and can probably compete for a backup job…he’s right on the cusp of his instincts being bad enough to not make my list, but I kept him on there mainly cuz David Cutliff is his head coach and Cutliff is a QB guru)
7. Devin Gardner – (not enough film to do a correct evaluation but what I see he looks pretty decent)
Those are the players (except for Mariota) that dont have inherent limitations with their inborn mental makeup.  Not to say they will all (or any of them) will be worth a damn – most of them will probably get cut and the ones that dont will more than likely compete for backup jobs, but upstairs if their arm strength and accuracy are where it needs to be they’re at least capable of running an nfl offense without shitting the bed like Sanchize or Geno.
Grayson, Hundley, Wallace, Carden, Fajardo, & Taylor Kelly don’t make my list. Grayson and Hundley might make good backup QBs but they are lacking qualities that will cause you endless frustration.  Some people might disagree but I just don’t wanna deal with shitty  instincts in a QB. I know I made an exception with Mariota but his style of play should minimize his limitations. Taylor Kelly I couldn’t get a good evaluation on but his arm looked too weak to me.  Some of these QBs not on my list will likely get drafted pretty high and some of them will go on to be starters. I believe in the end the reasons why they don’t make my list will be revealed, especially when you look at value.
Value Steals:  Petty, Mannion, Bridge.  These are the guys you’re most likely to get a steal on. If you can get Petty in the 3rd round or Mannion or Bridge in the 4th or later rounds you might have really found something to work with. Most likely none of them amount to anything but there’s a decent chance they do.
