I'm not sure who he meant by his 26th pick to Cleveland

 

He said Ryan Shazier, who is a LB

 

But he put CB, so that could mean Bradley Roby

 

I don't think we draft Moses at 28 even though he may be our first pick

 

I have a feeling someone is going to trade for our first in order to get Jimmy Garoppolo before the second round starts

If we get Moses I hope it is in the second via a trade.

In that scenario I'd grab Benjamin or Cooks.

I like moses but I think 28 is too high for him

I don't see us trading, based on DG's comment last season regarding trading down.

Think he reaches a bit for the Panthers, glad he is no longer here

I think we're exactly in Moses' range (most have him as a late 1 early 2).  So he wouldn't be a reach at all.  And I think he truly will be in the discussion for 28, along with Verrett/Fuller at CB, and several WR's. 

 

Obviously, a lot will be determined by what we do in FA.  If we don't get at least a stopgap at LT, then the chances are that OT jumps way up on our team needs.  However, if the draft comes and we haven't picked up a FA and we don't go OT at 28, then I think we should steel ourselves for Bell as our starting LT.  Although I think WR will be their desired position, need may trump that playmaker they have talked about.

At 28, there will be no values at LT.  Moses, in my opinion is just a future RT.  Botonio is a possibility for LT because of his quickness, but don't think he starts his first season.

I'm not a huge Benjamin fan. I think he has potential, but he scares me (in a bad way) more so than any other WR. I'd prefer Cooks or OBJ if we go WR.

I've heard some analysts say that Moses looks more comfortable on the left side, but until this past year, played RT at Virginia.  So I think (hope) that he may be one of those guys that can be solid at either tackle spot.  And if we don't sign one in FA, he may be all that's standing between Bell starting at LT.

 

Now there are other guys that I have heard mixed things about.  Mewhort and Botonio are two guys that I've heard good things about, but some think both will be better suited at Guard, and Brandon Thomas is another guy I like, but he is probably only a RT.  So I guess we'll need to trust our talent evaluators to cut through the over analysis that we get from analysts..

I hear you - I like the idea of Benjamin more than what he has put on tape. He is very inconsistent in his effort and it's strange that he wasn't the #1 receiver on his team.

I'm liking OBJ the more of his tape that I watch. Would not at all be disappointed with him in the first.

    • Those generally aren't set until August or so. No way of really telling the games that will be worth being nationally televised beyond the basic rivalries that are big draws anyway (Pens vs Caps, for example) until after all the roster moves get settled and coverage of practices and preseason games start giving everybody an idea of where teams are talent wise. I expect us to get at least a few NBC games, because our division has too many big draws for us to get completely shut out of national games.
    • By the by, Einstein, Brexit alone caused 338m in debt for Manchester United. A 27.5% increase in one fiscal quarter. See, if you can muster enough brain cells, you'd know the weakened pound plays a factor. No billionaire is gonna change the economy. So your insane theory about EPL money being a game changer for attracting all the elite stars and prospects fails... tremendously. Especially since the top producer in your league is fugged 2-3 years from now.  You better hope Brexit doesn't collapse either. Your precious billionaires would press that escape button ASAP leaving the EPL in horrible shape even with the TV money.  Those 'broke ass' Real and Barca fans won't have to worry about that. :)
