Draft Kelvin Benjamin

I think I would prefer Benjamins over Evans because due to lack of NFL QB every catch Evans made were unconventional. Every highlight is about Manziel running all over the place and then heave it to the wide open guy. It would have been nice to watch Evans operate with a QB that can step in the pocket so he could finish his route instead of broken plays.

 

I have to disagree.

 

Evans is a stud. Huge down field threat and very explosive with the ball in his hands. Evans leads Watkins, Matthews, Landry, Beckham, Cooks, and Robinson with catches of 20+ yards. He also has sure hands only behind Landry with a 3.51% drops percentage.

I think it's safe to say we're going to take 2 WR's.  Who would be your second pick? 

 

(Assuming who may be there in the late 2nd)

(1) Kelvin Benjamin

(2) Davante Adams

 

Loves Beckham but pretty sure he'd be long gone. Same with Moncrief. Would love to have "KB" and "Coleman". Imagine that receiver duo. Two 6'5" receivers added to a 6'5" TE (Olsen) with another 6'5"QB in Cam throwing them the ball. Good luck NFC South corners. Yall midget corners can get out of the way.

ESPN has him as around the 32nd best prospect so let's make it happen.

 

CBS has him as the 29th.

 

But, I'm really just waiting on Mayock's mock. I love that dude! I really do. He's the only guy I really pay attention to.

I'd be very happy if we drafted Kelvin Benjamin because Cam throws the ball high and with Kelvins length I'd be helpful

So you think we're going to take another receiver with our second round pick?  I was thinking we could go after another receiver maybe with our 3 or 4th round pick.  But hey, they doubled up on DT's last draft.  For argument sake's, let's say we did take another receiver with our 2nd round pick.  My choices would be:

 

(1) Martavis Bryant - 6'4

(2) Brandon Coleman - 6'5

 

*Of course, if KB is still available, TAKE HIM.

 

Now, let's say we didn't take a receiver with our 2nd round pick.  Either we traded that pick or went after an OT and decided to go after another receiver later on in the draft.  Potential guys I would like to have that should be available would be:

 

(1) La'Damian Washington - 6'4

(2) Bruce Ellington - 5'9 - he's projected to be a 2nd/3rd round pick, but I think he's going to be taken a little later.  His height may be an issue to some NFL scouts.

I wouldnt doubt if we go WR consecutively.

 

I would have to say that taking Bryant in the 1st would be a huge reach. I dont see it happening. A lot of fans will probably be upset with that pick. Nor can I see your 2nd scenario.

 

 

 

"IF" I was Gettleman, this would be how I would go about the draft "right now":

 

(1) Antonio Richardson, OT

(2) Beckham? / Landry / Adams

(3) Moncrief / Coleman / Bryant / CB

I can't get into Adams, I've tried and watched and watched for something to pop out. It hasn't. To me his game compares to Josh Huff as far as being tough and possessing running back-esque skills with the ball in his hand. But Adams is better with the ball in the air, but far less explosive than Huff. I don't see how these guys are separated by 2-3 rounds.

40 times are overrated. They're measured in artificial conditions. They're not on the field of play, and they're not in pads. Remember when Steve Smith was drafted, his reported 40 times was at or near 4.6. But when he was on the field (in his prime), I challenge you to find a faster man in pads.

 

I want to draft Jordan Matthews. I think he'll end up being a steal even at our first rounder. This guy set the SEC record for yards in the toughest conference against the toughest defenses in college football, and with those defenses constantly double and triple teaming him.

The reason he had all those 20+ yard catches might be because the play breaks down and he finds himself behind the safety a lot. I just haven't seen enough of his route running ability on tape. Also the A&M's OL give him so much time get himself open. But he's very good at those 50/50 balls.

Getting Benjamin and then Matthews in the second would be a steal

 Benjamin has the speed to stretch a defense vertically as he torched Florida and cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy to the tune of 212 yards on nine catches and three scores.

Benjamin was on fire late in the season as he dominated the competition. Benjamin is a mismatch nightmare with a ton of upside. He has to work on his hands as he drops too many passes.
