I actually wouldn't be mad with those 2 as our first 2 picks. I see Obi going between 26-36 though

Sorry, I actually like Obi, I was specifically referring to that Obi > Adams tweet

Thanks for posting some of Ethan Young's tweets.  He's an interesting guy to follow.  But I confess a lot of what he analyzes is a bit above my paygrade.  I'm not great at watching film and identifying a player's strengths & weaknesses, at least in isolation...  I can see when a unit is or isn't playing well, but trying to identify the whys is tough for me...

So much still to learn!  Draft season is fun in terms of comparing different analysts' takes on top prospects and trying to see whether I can spot what they're talking about!

With our moves in free agency, safety is less of an urgent need for me so I've not been paying too much attention to the commentary on Jamal Adams..  Still hoping we go either DE or Offensive Skill Player at #8.

This is the same guy who raved about Bradberry, right?

I bet we can come up with an amazing stat based analysis for combine measures. I did one for WR. I would have to dig through my rubbage

Jamal Adams leadership skills alone are first rounder worthy. He was the first true freshman team captain in LSU history.

Damn I did not know. Fun fact of the day.

I've only seen video clips but Hooker seems like more of a ball-hawk where Adams seemed more physical. If Adams' physicality is of the Tres Boston style that's just flinging his body and corkscrewing off the runner then I'd rather not. He's been my top choice until now but I'm easily influenced I guess.

Wouldn't rule out Hooker at 8. Coleman is very very solid and we recently extended him but he's not elite, not even close in his all around game, and is up there in age. Hooker would offer us an elite Earl Thomas like presence in our secondary and a young one on a cheapish contract for 5 years if we grabbed him, so doubt having Coleman would prevent that.

But would certainly bet on a top DE or Fournette over him. But if DG's preferred DEs and Fournette are gone would not be surprised to see Hooker. Think he's a better prospect at a tougher position to find an elite player at than Adams. Though I do like Adams a lot too and would be good with him at 8.
