Morgri Off-season draft #2

1 post in this topic

Well my first draft and off season topic missed quite a bit, but hey, who expected me to be even close to right? With that being said, watching the Senor bowl coverage, looking at our true needs, I've come up with my second and final draft until the week before the draft. A little more real look at it this time.

1. Chance Warmack

Rivera said himself in an interview not long ago that he expected the line play to better after Cam got hit near a league high through the last 8 games last season. I do expect Gross to be back, Kalil will be back from injury and Silatolu will be better. That said we need some more talent to take over for Hangartner and Bell (who has been pretty solid). You win at the line a scrimmage, and giving our RB's better lanes, and Cam more time to throw could make an immediate impact at the beginning of the year.

2. Quinton Patton

Seems high right? I don't think so, watching a reviewing a lot of film this guy is one of the best route runners I've seen. He has incredible control on his feet, can cut on a dime and make defenders miss on the screen. Great at getting separation even when there isn't much room. He has strong hands, catches almost everything that goes his way. I think he will be one of the steals of the draft. Also, Gettleman seems to have a thing about drafting wide receivers high in the draft.

4. Phillip Thomas

With 2 safeties possibly leaving us (Nakamura + Martin), I think we will look for depth at this position.

5. DT

7. K

That's all I got.

    • Times change and things evolve. Have you noticed that this year's draft class is the best in many years in the secondary? While the rules may be changing, have you noticed how defenses and players have changed as well? A guy like Fournette could be the thing we need to take advantage of the fact that this year and last year, CBs are being drafted once every 6 players and this year safeties are going to be drafted a ton as well. I think it was Linville and I who were thinking the same thing, that if you really want to get ahead of the current NFL, you do something no one else is building their teams to stop. I'd love to see us get into a real power running game, not a great running game because your QB gets as many yards as your lead back, but a running game that forces the D to not have extra DBs on the field causing play actions to be unstoppable. Maybe I am wrong, but it seems like NFL defenses are trending towards not being able to stop a great running game.
