Its early but I went ahead and did a 4 rounder


1st: Xavier McKinney 

https://thedraftnetwork.com/player/xavier-mckinney/HiCzMNstl1McKinney is Versatile, think a more athletic harder hitting Minkah Fitzpatrick.  He fits what we need And want.  He's perfect for our zone style and has the ability to cover the nickel (remember that was the big reason Hurney liked Gaulden so much). 


2nd: Alaric Jackson


Jackson had 23 starts at LT and some people thought he was a borderline 1st rounder at OT. 

His teammates Wirfs who has been at RT and is a freak, has taken over and dominated at LT the first few games this season as Jackson has been out with an injury.  Jackson has a LOAD of potential at OG and the panthers have a need there.  The former LT can come right in and solidify that left side next to Little for the next couple of years.


3rd: Darnay Holmes


This CB class is L-O-A-D-E-D

Holmes is going to be a combine freak, he has Elite speed with solid size. 

The NFL is going more and more to a pass happy league with more and more 3-4 WR sets.  You need more than just 2 good CBs in this league.  The Bronco's 2015 D, the front 7 got all the credit.  But that CB trio they had was just as big.  


4th: Cam Akers


Look, I know this staff seems high on Scarlett.  But its clear that they arent as much as we think, with the amount of snaps CMC is getting.  Rivera says over and over at press conferences that they need to find ways to get him some rest.  

Getting him a good, legit compliment is one way.

Akers was HIGHLY touted coming out of HS and is a freak.  He has good size and speed.  He has improved his pass catching ability.  The big thong that seperates him is he can pass block better than many RBs



I like the safety pick, lets be honest we all want that position pick. I don't know much about McKinney but is that taking him a bit high? Maybe a good year for a trade back? The other guys I have never heard of though a guy who can play guard sounds useful. I really like that he has the same name as the goth general that sacked Rome. Listening to Joe Marino's podcast he says outside the Top 10 the strength of this draft is CB, WR and edge. I think we might be able to pick up a really good WR and that's tempting since I'm still not sold on our WR unit.

  Interesting that you use the TDN mock. I thinks its much better than fanspeak. I did one on there the other day and got Paulson Adebo in the 4th. LOL.

I'm all about OL early again. Would love to add Wirfs but he's looking like he'll end up in the top 10 so far.  I'd take C/G Biadasz in the mid to late first because we'll need to seriously look into help on the interior as well with Van Roten's contract expiring, Larsen's play and it would give us a chance to get out of Paradis' contract in the future.  Center looks solid this draft too so not opposed to waiting until day 2 either.  I pulled the following when I ran the draft network sim:

1(16) Tristian Wirfs, OT, Iowa

2(48) Shane Wade, CB, OSU

3(80) Lloyd Cushenberry III, C, LSU

4(112) Ross Blacklock, DT, TCU
