Draft Picks Watch: Jan 28

I kind of want to hang on to the Portland pick, it could end up around 24th, you can find a good player there and develop them.

Imagine a world where we end up in the lottery with our pick and get Detroit's lottery pick...and both end up being in the top 3. I don't think I could take it.

Right now, the Detroit (Charlotte) hold the 10th pick in the draft. If somehow that pick lands in the top 5, who get the pick? Charlotte or Detroit (Top 8 protected).

Detroit pick is top 8 protected, so if they move up into the top three it goes back to them.

Forgot about Detroit's pick having protection. I'd settle for it being the #9 pick. That could get us a damn good player in this draft class if all the top guys come out.

I'm a bigger Julius Randle fan than Parker. Not saying I dislike Parker bc I love the kid a lot. I just feel like Randle is destined for instance impact as a rookie. There are knocks on him like how he uses his left hand too much or has short arms. But, the kid is just a nasty, all around player.

 

If I was a team picking in the top3, I'd easily go with Randle. I believe that he's the safest player in this draft. Easily a 16-18ppg/10rpg player in his rookie season.

JMM shut him down, what do you think NBA PF's are going to do to Randle?

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
