wow was he really rated that high?! i was draft ignorant last year. wasnt even paying attention. this is the first year ive gotten into it so forgive me haha.

 

all the sudden im liking Lee more and more. why do some people keep calling him a bust? i know he got injured but alot of star players get injured and come back to do just as well.

 

Yeah, last year people were really down on the receiver class, especially before Tavon became the flavor of the month right before the draft. The consensus was the both Watkins and Lee would go before anyone last year. In fact, Watkins had a down year and Lee had a great one (basically the opposite of this year), so many had Lee as the better prospect. 

 

Of course, like everything in sports, it's "what have you done for me lately?" so Lee's down year has overshadowed his great one last season. People forget he was 4th in the Heisman voting too. I'm not saying I'd take him higher than Watkins (mainly because of his injury, but the talent is there for him to be the best receiver in the class), but Lee's still a top 3 WR IMO. If you were to just look at their best seasons, Lee - as well as Cooks - have more impressive campaigns on their resume than Watkins.

Ebron. Some bias here, but I think he's either a stud or a bust, not much in between. 

 

Ebron obviously has the skill set to become a freak TE...but value wise, I'd rather draft a TE in the 4th like the kid from Iowa than spend a 1st on Ebron. 3 TDs in Carolina's explosive offense? I know it's not the end all be all, but ESPN's scouting report on him (for TE specific traits) have his big play and separation skills as exceptional. Again, that's his freak athletic ability. But competitiveness, ball skills (highest drop percentage among all top TE prospects) and his blocking are all rated average to below average.

 

I just think more than likely, he's going to be a guy who makes 1 or 2 plays a game you're amazed at...and either disappears or drops the ball the rest of the time. 

he just seems to be more of a "between the 20's" guy.  explosive after the catch but still somewhat unproven when fighting for the ball in smaller areas such as the red zone.

pretty much all mocks have Mack as at top 5-6 pick, if he falls out of the top 10 to 11-15, would that qualify is having slid?

It won't happen anyway. Scouts are looking at him as a hair below Von Miller's talent while also saying he has 10 times better character. He is a top 4 lock.

I meant to say I took a big slider ....sorry

 

"I have a big slider" to "I took a big slider" is a little unnerving, if you get my drift...

All 3 of the top QB's have a decent chance to drop. Will they? I really can't say.

 

If I had to pick a slider, I'll say Aaron Donald. I think Jernigan may go before him because of his arm length and versatility. After that, there's a lot of teams in the late teens and twenties that run a 34, so Donald may not be a fit for them.

Ebron. When you go team by team, pick by pick, a logical argument can be made against every single time until the Pats at 29. Here's hoping we take in spite of the arguments against should we be so fortunate.

Gil Brandt said some teams have him rated below Jimmy Garoppolo on their draft boards.

 

I think he's gonna be a great value pick and someone teams regret passing on (provided he can prove durable).
