TKP Mock Draft Rd 4 - Complete

If you would like to still join, there are a couple of people with 3 or 2 teams, so just let us know which one you would like, and we will slot you in.

Round 4 has a 1 hr. time limit. If the 1 hour time limit expires, I will make a pick using any list that the GM for the team has sent me in advance (send lists to TheBACreturns [at] gmail [dot] com) or in the absence of a list, I will use the GBN Big Board with a little discretion so as not make an obvious dumb pick (i.e. Kansas City won't be taking a QB in the 1st round this year).
.
.
Please utilize the Embeded Google Sheet. The spreadsheet contains the draft order (RD1-6) by team, team needs, and GM with a fairly comprehensive list of prospects based on the GBN Big Board (as well as several other prospects that did not make the GBN Big Board). I will try to keep the spreadsheet and thread updated as often as possible... Good luck!

Trey Pipkins, OT, Sioux Falls
Height: 6-6. Weight: 309. Arm: 33.88. Hand: 9.63.
40 Time: 5.12. 10-Yd: 1.75. Three Cone: 7.61.
Bench: 16. Vertical: 33.5. Broad: 9-6.
Projected Round (2019): 2-3.

4/13/19: Pipkins was in the running with Syracuse defensive tackle Chris Slayton as the best player at this year's East-West Shrine. The 6-foot-7, 307-pound Pipkins has good length and a nice build to him. He showed nice feet in the position drills, and also used his size, length, and strength to tie up edge rushers in the pass-rushing one-on-ones. Pipkins faces a big jump in competition, but after some developmental time as a backup, he could be a starter. After his strong week in St. Petersburg, team sources said they thought that Pipkins would be a second- or third-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Very interesting 1-2 punch for the Giants at RB now. I was considering taking him for the Ravens in a few picks

If David Montgomery wasn't still on the board, PHI would have taken Love a few picks ago at #127. I thought about going defense and hoping to see if one of the RBs was still available at #138, but appears it wouldn't have gone the way I wanted if i had done that.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Love isn't going to be able to play until late in the season, but Love is a great prospect with more upside. The Giants with Barkley and Gallman, wouldn't have to rush to get him on the field.

When he does get healthy, he could return kicks at bare minimum.

Same thing with PHI and their RB depth -- Howard, Sproles, Smallwood, etc etc etc. Need a RB because so much year over year turnover at the position, always having one on a cheap rookie deal moving forward isn't bad business if you can find a guy who pops.

I like the pick for NYG.

Atlanta Mock Draft Retrospective

1 11 Ed Oliver IDL Houston
2 62 Jaylon Ferguson EDGE Louisiana Tech
3 79 Amani Oruwariye CB Penn State
4 117 Trey Pipkins OT Sioux Falls
4 137 Mecole Hardman WR Georgia

First two rounds, ecstatic. Could not have gone better. Two major needs, getting guys that are at our near the top of the boards in their positions.

Third and fourth rounds, I'm happy with the CB there, but In retrospect, I would've been better served taking the OT from Alabama State, Tytus Howard, and gotten another CB in the fourth. Trey Pipkins is a guy that some talent and the Falcons have been looking at him, but I think OT was more of a need than CB, so I should've gone OT first. Mecole Hardman was a value pick, taking him from the local school, with the thought of maybe replacing Mohammed Sanu in a year.

Rounds 5-7, with the two fifths, I'd've gone RB and LB for depth, and then maybe a depth S in the seventh.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

There is no way Ferguson is on the board at #62. That's a great pick.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Yeah, I thought about acknowledging that in the summary. Was really lucky to be able to move back up into the second to get him.

San FranJose Mock Draft Retrospective

1 2 Quinnen Williams IDL Alabama
2 36 Nasir Adderley S Delaware
3 67 Isaiah Johnson CB Houston
4 104 Anthony Johnson WR Buffalo

First round, I probably should have gone with the EDGE Josh Allen, but Williams is too good of a player to pass up. I wasn't able to pick up a really strong EDGE later in the draft (potential for depth in the sixth, maybe), but it's possible that Solomon Thomas can slide out and play EDGE opposite Dee Ford.

With the rest, I filled the major needs in the secondary and at WR, getting potentially a couple of starters. I'm not as conversant with SFJ'S depth needs, but probably would've gone EDGE and IOL with their two sixth rounders.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Cleveland Summary

2 49 Ben Burr-Kirven, LB, Washington [Auto Selection]
3 80 Juan Thornhill, S, Virginia
4 119 Sean Bunting, CB, Central Mich

The gem of this class is landing OBJ with the 17th pick. After that, safety and CB are the two biggest needs that I see for Cleveland. I know some lists have said LB, but I think the Browns have some really good depth already, but many of them are younger players and I think some will step up this year. Heading into this thing I was hoping to the S Taylor Rapp would fall into my lap in the second round and GISHokie scooped him up the pick before at 48 and I was stuck in meetings and missed out on my second option, Darnell Savage S from MD with the auto pick. Burr-Kirven may work out as he is better in pass coverage than most LBs and the NFL is trending more toward the pass by the year.

I was hoping to take Justin Layne, CB Mich St with the 80th but needed to fill the safety spot and went with best available. Layne went a few spots later and in the third round I took Bunting, who seemed to be rated right around this spot on a couple of draft ranking sites I was using. Had I been able to take a safety in the 2nd and a CB in the 3rd, I likely would have grabbed an OT/IOL with the fourth and went after IDL and another CB in with the 5th.

I thought about trading up as there were a lot of good safeties on the board going into the second, but the Browns just don't have the picks this year to get a decent offer together.

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

Cincinnati Summary

1 14 (from Atl) Devin Bush, LB, Michigan
2 42 David Edwards, OT, Wisconsin
2 45 (from Atl) Homebrew Daniel Jones, QB, Duke [Auto Selection]

Cincy always feels like they are a few pieces away from putting a solid team on the field. LB is by far their most glaring need and I didn't think Devin White was going to be on the board at 11. ATL looking to trade the 14th/45th plus some change for the 11th/72nd/110th worked out really well. I was able to get who I believe to be the second best LB in the draft at 14 and pick up a second rounder at the cost of the 3rd and 4th, which I might have been looking to package to move up for Andy Dalton's heir anyway. Had Drew Lock slipped a few more spot I would have jumped on him at 42. Picking up a OT for the right side should help Cincy get Mixon, who looks like their most consistent weapon, more involved. I missed 45th the pick and thankfully the autodraft folks decided on QB over TE as the Bengals have Eifert/Uzomah and I don't think they needed to go after a TE this year. Getting Daniel Jones at 45 fits really well as he will not be needed right away and I think he can be an above average QB in the NFL.

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

NYJ Draft Summary

1 3 Josh Allen EDGE Kentucky
3 68 Julian Love CB Notre Dame
3 93 Tytus Howard OT Alabama State
4 105 Jalen Hurd WR/RB Baylor

In reality, if Bosa and Williams go 1-2, the Jets are most likely trading down out of the third spot to accumulate more picks to help fills holes in a patchy roster. In a QB-driven league, all it takes is one team to fall in love with one guy and have him still be there at #3 for the Jets to make out like a bandit as teams try to jump in front of the Raiders, Bucs, and Giants. It's clear that general public doing mock drafts always seems to forget that someone makes a big move for a QB every year. I think four go off the board in the first round this year: Murray, Haskins, Lock, and Jones. I don't particularly love any of them. I will be mildly surprised if the Jets don't trade down, even if it means staying in the top-10 or so.

Having said all that, I went Allen who could be the best EDGE in the class and profiles as a high level starter from day one. Jets sorely missed out on a pass rush last year, and having Allen could change things. Without a second round pick as a result of the Darnold trade last year, the NYJ waited patiently into the third. Without anyone looking to move up to #68, the Jets took CB Julian Love, who widely has a Round 2 grade. He profiles as a slot CB and should help shore up a DB room that sorely needs help. Later in the round, the Jets took Tytus Howard, the highest rated OT left on the board. He will need some seasoning and development but profiles as a starter on the OL and also had a Round 2 grade on a few other sites I was looking at. I was very surprised he was still on the board at #93. In the fourth, I went with WR Jalen Hurd, who started his career playing RB at Baylor. He gives Gase a talented and versatile player to scheme with around Darnold in creative short yardage and goal line packages.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

I'm really jealous about that Tytus Howard pick. If I was thinking straight, I would've taken him ahead of you in the third. Good pick.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

IND Draft Summary

1 16 Brian Burns EDGE Florida St.
2 43 Jerry Tillery IDL Notre Dame
3 88 Yodny Cajuste OT West Virginia
4 129 Terry McLaurin WR Ohio State
4 135 Michael Jackson CB Miami

This would be a "we're going streaking" draft haul for the Colts. You get the best pure speed pass rusher in the class while ultimately only giving up a late 2nd rounder. Put Burns in a rotation with last years draft picks in Kemoko Turay and Tyquan Lewis as well as Justin Houston and Jabball Sheard and you have a pretty formidable group.

Getting Jerry Tillery after trading down 9 spots in the second is also amazing. As I said when I made the pick, he is probably in play at the Colts original #26 pick, so getting him here is a steal. His gap penetration and elite hand usage are perfect for the Colts gap shooting scheme.

I really wanted Amani Oruwariye, but getting a solid left tackle prospect here is a win. If he can develop in the next year, the Colts will be able to let Anthony Castanzo walk in free agency and have one of the best and youngest lines in the NFL.

Love Terry McLaurin. Possibly a target for the Colts at the end of round 2, I think this is pretty low for him. Local kid from Indy and was overshadowed at Ohio State by Parris Campbell, but I think he could be a solid player to pair with TY Hilton and Deon Cain.

To be honest, I'm not in love with the last pick. We need a CB, and Jackson has some upside. I really wanted Shawn Bunting.

I feel good about this haul. Positions to be addressed in the remainder of the draft would be safety, linebacker, and tight end. Ultimately, while I love this draft, I think it's very unlikely that Chris Ballard trades up like I did for Burns. But I can dream.

I really like what you did with IND in this draft. Good maneuvering to get really talented players at spots where there was still value in the pick.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Thanks, I thought the board fell to them well. Realistically, I see them trading out of the first round and grabbing a third second rounder or maybe a future pick. Indications are the front office thinks players in mid-first through the second are comparable in talent level

I think every front office is thinking that, too, which will make it difficult to trade back in the real draft. Some are thinking that talent level seeps well down into the third as well.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Carolina Draft Summary

1 26 Andre Dillard - OT - Washington State
2 47 LJ Collier - EDGE - TCU
2 59 Darnell Savage - S - Maryland
3 77 Will Grier - QB - WVU
3 89 Nate Davis - G - UNC - Charlotte
4 115 Isiah Buggs - DL - Alabama

I loved my draft. All my primary needs were addressed and the rest of the draft was going to be addressing depth. The fact that Dillard was still there when I traded back was great! LJ Collier might have been a bit of a reach, but we have something that we can work with in him. Seeing as how Ninonvich was taken after Collier, i probably would have taken him with this pick. No complaints about the rest of my draft. Darnell Savage will go great with Eric Reid in the back end. Will Grier is a nice pickup. We can let him Kyle Allen battle it out in camp for the backup spot. I'm looking to put Nate Davis in that starter role for left guard. Everyone here in Charlotte is talking about moving Moton to left LG, but let him be the swing tackle. Darrell Williams is only signed to a 1 year deal and you can slide Moton right in if/when he leaves for more money next year. Isiah Buggs is going to push Vernon Butler for that backup spot along the IDL. Butler will be gone after next year, but having Buggs there may be able to light a fire under him.

With the rest of my picks (1 in the 5th and 1 in the 6th)
TE - Greg Olsen will be gone after next year and Ian Thomas will be the no.1. Need to still be able to run two - TE sets
WR - Hogan and Torrey Smith have 1 year left on their contracts. Need to have a WR developing behind them (I probably would have picked Miles Boykin)

PHI Draft Summary

1 25 Dexter Lawrence NT Clemson
2 38 Deionte Thompson S Alabama
2 57 Max Scharping OT/IOL Northern Illinois
4 127 David Montgomery RB Iowa State
4 138 Bobby Okereke LB Stanford

In the first, Eagles drafted to a strength by taking Dexter Lawrence, who will benefit greatly from learning under Fletcher Cox while continuing to rehab his knee injury. The Eagles have solid line depth, and this was a best player available pick. It was a close call at the end between Lawrence and OT Andre Dillard, but Dillard struggles in run blocking (coming from a Mike Leach offense, not a surprise), and run blocking is key for NFL success. If S Johnathan Abram was still on the board, he would have been the pick.

PHI has two second round picks and I aimed to address S and OL with them. Once SanFranJose went with Adderley at #36, I didn't think both Thompson and Rapp would make it all the way to #53 (especially with GB, CLE, CAR, and several other teams needing a S still to pick). Darnell Savage was also in play for PHI in the second round, but I think he profiles more as a slot CB more than he does a starting S, and I wasn't sure he'd be around either. So when JAX was looking to trade down, I jumped at the chance to move up from #53 to #38 at the cost of #163 -- pick value of 395.8 headed out and a whopping 520 returning to me. The difference in value is roughly the #94 pick in the draft, too good to pass up.

Having made the trade, I went with Deionte Thompson over Taylor Rapp at #38 as Thompson is more of a coverage S. Then later in the round at #57, I went with Max Scharping, who can play either OG or OT. He is a mauling mean player who could step right in at RT and eventually take over for Jason Peters at LT. He was rated very low on the GBN big board we were using relative to other draft sites. I went with Scharping over Tytus Howard, Yodny Cajuste, and Kaleb McGary due to his versatility and experience playing all over the line. EDGE Jaylon Ferguson was in play, but I didn't think I could get a solid OT waiting into the fourth.

With no third rounder as a result of the Golden Tate trade, PHI waited until the fourth round to address other needs. I think David Montgomery could be the best back in the class, and having a capable RB on the roster on a fourth round rookie deal is good business - he definitely won't last this long in the real draft, and joins a versatile backfield with Sproles, Smallwood, Howard, and Clement. A better football situation than fantasy football situation. He would probably start for the Eagles in 2020. With the last pick in our draft, I went with Bobby Okereke, a LB who would probably see the field on ST and on passing downs. Probably undersized for an every down role, but is capable in rotational/situational snaps. Kingsley Keke was also in play at #138.

NY Giants Draft Summary

1-6 Montez Sweat - EDGE - Mississippi State
1-17 from Cle - "Greedy" Williams - CB - LSU
2-37 Greg Little - OT - Mississippi
3-95 from, Cle, N.E. - Will Harris - S Boston College
4-108 - Lamont Gaillard - IOL - Georgia
4-132 from N.O. - Bryce Love - RB - Stanford

Most people look at the Giants and see a glaring need for a QB and I don't disagree, but I feel David Gettleman is not trying to solve this QB issue this year, and his job and Pat Shurmur's might hinder on that. I do think that it is probable that they over draft Daniel Jones at pick 17, if they are to address the issue this year. Giant's got a fantastic return for the OBJ trade. They already got a starting safety out of the deal, add a starting corner, a young safety to groom it's from just the picks in that deal, and I think they have become a vastly improved team. I was also able to get a starting RT and Center out of this draft to FINALLY fix the offensive line, so that they can use Saquon to the best of his abilities now in his prime. I also got a fantastic pick that will come in handy late in the season with Bryce Love. He would have went higher if it wasn't for a late season injury at Stanford.

In reality, I hope that the Giants are able to trade the 17th pick for another pick in the 2020 draft, so they have draft capital to move up to get one of the prime time QBs available.

All in all, I think the Giants would improve to an 8-8 team with my draft.

VTFG,

I agree that this looks like a good draft, but is Sterling Shepard your no. 1 WR? I would have taken a WR instead of Bryce Love..Barkley is the main guy, but I think that Gallman and Perkins are "good enough"...Good draft though...a lot of needs were addressed

I had back to back picks in the 5 round and thought Stills might make it there. I agree WR is a glaring hole. I don't expect the Giants to be able to fill all of them because they have way to many holes. After doing this exercise, I think maybe I should have grabbed Stills before love, and see if he came around in my back to back picks in the 5th round, which are very early.

I will add Golden Tate is our new #1. ;)

What's
Important
Now

Hope Tate plays better than he did in Detroit. Between Shep, Engram, and Tate...that's a solid core..

Honestly, I have no idea what to think of Tate being added to the team. He's a slot guy and we have too many people that can play there Engram and Shep. They need a big bodied outside receiver for sure.

Chicago Draft Summary

3 87 Lonnie Johnson - DB - Kentucky
4 126 Jaquan Johnson - S - University of Miami

Chicago didn't really need a lot, but I was happy with this draft. Have a big physical CB to go opposite Kyle Fuller and also address safety with Jaquan Johnson. With my last pick, I probably would have gotten another WR.

Denver Draft Summary

1 10 Kyler Murray - QB - Oklahoma
2 41 Chris Lindstrom - G - Boston College
3 71 Joe Giles-Harris - LB - Duke
4 125 Kris Boyd - DB - Texas

I'm happy with this draft even though I know that Elway would not draft Murray if he was there at 10. Murray bring some excitement and has a little bit of "Russell Wilson" in him at QB. He's going to have to add good weight all over(I think the most he could get up to and still keep his speed is 215) . Chris Lindstrom is a monster on the interior and will do well with opening holes for Lindsay. Joe Giles-Harris is a tackling machine and will be one of those players that you will not hear a lot about, but your turn around and he has 13 tackles. I'm not sure if Kris Boyd will be a starter but he will provide depth and thats what you're looking for in the 4th round.

Jacksonville jaguars draft summary

round 1 pick 7 Jacksonville - Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State
round 2 pick 53 Jacksonville from Bal (via Phi) Chase Winovich EDGE Michigan
round 3 pick 69 Jacksonville - Kelvin Harmon WR NC State
round 3 pick 98 Jacksonville from LAR (comp) Darrell Henderson RB Memphis
round 4 pick 109 Jacksonville - Bobby Evans OT Oklahoma
round 5 pick 163 Jacksonville from PHI
round 6 pick 178 Jacksonville

jags went from 1 game away from the super bowl back to a 500 football team last year, most of the issues were QB play which they addressed in free agency with the signing of nick foles but he is not the QB of the future and honestly outside of a cameo magical run in philly hasn't instilled a lot of faith in me as GM. me and tom caughlin don't have the same views on big dick nick. which is why I drafted Dwayne haskins in the 1st. Ill let him sit a year under the tutelage of nicky.

In the 2nd with the lose/ trade of dante fowler last season the Jags needed help on the edge winovich wasn't the first choice here but hes a pour mans JJ watts and can be a play maker and has a motor for days. plus I think his energy and attitude will be a nice addition to this D which has the potential to be back on the top of the league sooner rather than later.

3rd round Kelvin Harmon is a great route runner and a big guy that can go up and get the football and catch in traffic. hell compliment an already young receiving core of DJ chark, DD westbrook, and marquise lee coming off ACL surgery. they'll be young but full of explosive play makers.

also in the 3rd round, the steal of the draft In my opinion, explosive elusive RB that can catch out of the backfield, do it all back. the loss of TJ yeldon as the 3rd down back and the who knows what dumb thing leonard fournette will do next leaves the jags with Alfred Blue and Thomas rawls to vets that can teach this young guy the ropes and share a lot of the same skill sets. im really in love with this pick. I expect him to contribute right away on 3rd downs and in the return game.

4th round Bobby Evans OT out of Oklahoma help add some depth in a major area of need for the jags.

late round picks 5th and 6th, I would have been looking to pick up a TE (there were still some very talented ones left on the board that I would have grabbed in the 5th) and in the 6th I was going to sneak in and grab a DB (mook Reynolds was going to be my homer pick, I think had not missed his SR season I would have been getting a late day 3rd/4th round pick in the 6th round)

overall extreamly happy with what we got, our QB of the future, playmakers on both sides of the ball, and potential probowl/ star power even later on in the draft.

Wanna win put boobie in! Let boobie spin coach!

Good Looking Draft...but I could see Coughlin going DB first round and trading Ramsey...he does not like malcontents..or even the hint of you being a malcontent..

yeah I agree, I don't think there is any way in heck that he goes QB. I think hell go Dline, either montez sweat (miss st) or juwaan taylor LT from UF.

#Bapn ain't EZ

Wanna win put boobie in! Let boobie spin coach!

Yeah, I see OL (or TE Hockenson) as the most likely play in the first round for them.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Arizona Draft Summary

1 1 Nick Bosa EDGE Ohio St.
2 33 Dalton Risner OT/OG Kansas St.
3 65 Chauncey Gardner-Johnson FS Florida
4 103 Daylon Mack IDL Texas A&M

Although I feel good about the players Arizona gets here, I would have liked to accumulate some more picks because their roster is pretty bad. However, I just really liked the players available with the first three picks.

Apparently there are rumors now that AZ is not going to take Kyler Murray, so they could go in this direction. I think Bosa and Risner are easy plug and play game-changers from day 1. CGJ is one of my favorite players in the draft, and although he's not really a need for them, he is a playmaker, and you always want to add those whenever possible.

I actually confused Daylon Mack with Renell Wren from Arizona St, which is who I wanted to take since I like him better. But either way they get a body on the inside.

I would have like to add more weapons on offense for Rosen/Murray but the value wasn't there and you can find contributors on Day 3 especially at receiver. Plus, I think Kingsbury will believe he can scheme open his receivers rather than needing top tier talent. But, I would focus on WR/TE and some more line help with the rest of the picks.

to be fair, you could take Renell Wren with the next pick since he's still on the board and the hypothetical next pick is yours

Houston Texans draft summary
1st round 23 pick Houston - Garrett Bradbury IOL N.C. State
2 round 54 pick Houston from Sea... Isaiah Prince OT Ohio State
2 round 55 pick Houston - Trayvon Mullen CB Clemson
3 round 86 pick Houston -Josh Oliver TE San Jose State
5 round 161 pick Houston -
6 round 195 pick Houston -

this was a tough draft, with definite needs on the OL I had to address those early, the quality of potential starting OL play drops off significantly after the 1st couple rounds. addressed those needs in the first and 2nd with 2 oline guys that were both high on my board. pulling an interior line guy/ center this early in the draft in the first but I think bardburry can anchor this oline for years to come. heres to hoping hes the next jeff Saturday as im not a great evaluator of OLine talent but im trusting my scouts on this one. he and Prince will be counted on to contribute right away and keep desean Watson clean in the pocket and not running for his life for seasons to come.

in the 2nd round on back to back picks mullen addresses a major need for Houston and is a long rangy corner who hopefully can secure the starting backside DB position.

3rd round we snagged josh oliver, I really like his atheism at TE and he can take some pressure off deandre Hopkins, Will fuller and Keke Coutee. I expect him to challenge 2nd year Miss st TE Jordan Thomas for playing time right away.

5th and 6th I would have been looking to add a safety, the secondary for Houston needed help adding depth and players that can compete for playing time. the 6th and final pick of the texas I would have been looking to add some depth at either RB or more line depth. I would have really had to have done some research here to try and find someone who would be a contributor, as much as they need OLine help I probably would have went RB in hopes that he would be able to contribute on special teams immediately.

overall I wasn't extremely happy with the draft, a lot of picks that I was interested in snuck off the board before I could grab them, I tried to move picks around but with not a ton of picks it was tough. im happy with the first 2 as they address needs and can play right away but this draft lacks the "star power" to get the fans excited. lucky Houston's in a wide open division with most of the teams sitting right around .500 the Texans went on a 9 game win streak last year after starting out 0-3 and finished with a record of 11-5 before losing to inner division rivals the colts in a game were they could only mustered up 7 points and Desean Watson lead the team in rushing yards with 76. one can only hope that addressing the line will help jump start a run game that really struggled with lamar miller and putting a ton of the run game responsibility on Desean a year after an ACL tear.

Seattle Draft Summary

1-21 Jonathan Abram, S, Miss State
3-84 Justin Layne, CB Mich State
4-124 Jalen Jelks, EDGE, Oregon

Had we gone deeper, I would have liked to get either a target for Russell Wilson or some protection. Rebuilding LOB is high priority for the Seattle brand and the 2 DBs selected have good size for that role.

I feel Jelks could have an immediate impact in the 2-deep for Seattle.

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Maybe Seattle will be able to pick up a few picks before the draft if they trade Frank Clark..

Maybe.

Seattle was very limited, and I didn't get any trades completed.

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Holy mother of deals...

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/26587040/sources-clark-dealt-chiefs-1...

Clark, who had yet to sign the $17.128 million franchise tag given to him by the Seahawks, has agreed to a five-year, $105.5 million deal that includes $63.5 million guaranteed, sources told Schefter.

The Chiefs parted with their 2019 first-round draft choice, which is 29th overall, and will send the lower of their two 2020 second-round draft picks to the Seahawks, sources told ESPN. The teams also will exchange third-round picks this year, sources told ESPN.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Would have taken Zach Allen in this case at 21. Abram with 29 unless I could trade it down.

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

I would have taken Abram at #25 with PHI for what it's worth. Interesting what-if wrinkle

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

The Seahawks will probably all trade down for more picks.

Nice pickup for the Chiefs, though I'm unsure about the cost. They gained a 2020 2nd for losing Dee Ford, and gave that and this year's first for Clark and a huge contact. Is he that much of an upgrade over Ford?

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

The other thing is the Chiefs are moving to a 4-3 under Spagnolo and Clark is a stud 4-3 DE and very stout at the point of attack.

What's
Important
Now

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

SEA will almost definitely not stay at #21. You tried to trade back the whole draft, but I think SEA will definitely make that happen to accumulate more picks. SF has moved up into the late first round in the past to have the fifth year option on a guy they liked, and SF's second (#36), third (#67), and sixth (#176 might be enough to move up for SEA's first. Or could maybe pick up a first in next year's draft.

Edit: OAK, NE, NYG, and CIN also have plenty of draft capital to move into that range if they want to.

New England Draft Summary

1-22 Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma
Bit of a troll pick against the Steelers. Speedster who can get that quick separation but also the ability to take the top off the D.

2-64 Gerald Willis, IDL, Miami
Provides depth at the position. Chance to contribute right away. Kinda risky pick, but could payoff.

3-73 Ryan Finley, QB, NC State
Could not believe he was still available this late. Could be the long term solution at QB after Brady retires. Limits mistakes, good accuracy.

3-85 Austin Bryant, EDGE, Clemson.
Evil laugh. Very athletic. I'm liking the idea of him and Michael Bennett teeing off on AFC East O-lines

3-97 Jace Sternberger, TE, Texas A&M
Acceptable replacement for Gronk in a deep TE draft. Similar size and speed. High quality producer in the college game.

3-101 Germaine Pratt, LB, NC State
Solid prospect.

Had the draft gone longer, I was considering taking a good Wes Welker-type WR. Somebody reliable, cerebral, deceptively fast, and a coach's kid. Somebody like Hunter Renfrow out of Clemson.

I was also going to get a late round safety, probably Jamon Reynolds out of Texas A&M-Commerce

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

I was gonna comment that if NE didn't take Renfrow at #252, then someone should check on Belichick to make sure he's feeling ok!!

Minnesota TKP Mock Draft Retrospective
1 (18)- Christian Wilkins DT, Clemson
2 (50)- Irv Smith Jr TE, Alabama
3 (81)- Michael Jordan OT/OG Ohio St
4 (120)- Blake Cashman ILB Minnesota

I think a Viking's fan would be really happy with Wilkins and Smith as the 1st two picks. Wilkins should plug in as a rotational lineman if Griffin is healthy but has enough potential to replace Griffin if he has a set back.
Redskins fans know Capt Kirk does his best work inside 20yds. Smith will be an excellent option for Cousins especially since Rudolph can't be counted on for more than 8 gms.
Minnesota has had one of the worse olines in the NFL the last 2yrs. Michael Jordan has the size and technique to develop into a solid right tackle who could eventually move to the left.
With the 4th rndr I took the hometown LB that is twofold need and sentimental. Minnesota would like to move Barr to a DE position which creates a need at ILB. Blakeman has potential to develop into a every down linebacker.
With rounds 5-7 I would have used those picks for a larger RB, two more OL (interior), and a safety.....

Washington Redskins Draft Summary

1 (15) Jonah Williams OT/OG Bama
2 (46) Paris Campbell WR Ohio State
3 (76) Connor McGovern IOL Penn ST
3 (96) Mark Fields CB Clemson

I really just wanted nothing but Offensive lineman as part troll part venting the fact that we have gone down 3+ lineman each of the last 3 years. But I couldn't pass up Campbell in the mid second since our WR corps is garbage. I also picked Mark Fields since no good lineman seemed to be available and our secondary is also garbage.

With Bruce Allen's infatuation with anything Bama, you actually might have nailed that first round pick
