Me too. I was thinking or hopo gana he would last til the 5th.
What are Your thoughts On jarvis jones/OLB as a prospect and potential target next year?
If our Front office weren't such ******s neglecting the WR and TE positions, I'd have been pumped to go D top 5 picks next draft:
OLB, CB, FS, DE, ILB in first 3 rounds.
Unfortunately the reality is we have no speed or playmakers on O and need a #1 and 2 WR and starting TE. Rest of O should suffice (with mid round OL depth).
I haven't keyed on Jarvis Jones yet...got one of his games DVR'd but initially I would say he's got a heck of a burst, natural pass rushing skills, plays with good leverage, strong hands too. I need to see how he looks in pass coverage but I think he may be the top OLB in this draft right now.
It would have been nice to get a WR in this draft but 3 games into the season the only ones that have caught a pass in every game are Kendall Wright and Alshon Jeffery...and I'm not convinced Alshon Jeffery won't balloon up after this season...I just don't trust that kid. The WR class, as a whole, is a bit disappointing this year. Everyone was up in arms about Stephen Hill who in the first game had 5 catches for 89 yards and 2 TDs...he's been blanked the last two week...didn't even have a catch against us...actually had a drop. His route running is awful and his hands are pretty bad. Rueben Randell has 1 catch for 4 yards, Justin Blackmon who was supposed to be a stud and really the only target for Jacksonville has 4 catches for 31 yards. That's not to say that these guys won't bust out next year after a year of experience but I'm not sure how much help Tannehill would have gotten from this group this year.
I was hoping for Mohammed Sanu in the last draft. Any idea how hes done the first 2 games?
If we could get a Greg Jennings type impact FA especially at WR or CB, and resign our own main cogs...My ideal draft at this point would go something like
1. Werner/Mingo DE
2. Sean Porter OLB
2. Steadman Bailey WR
3. Zach Ertz TE
3. Bacarri Rambo S
If we don't sign a starting FA CB, which I don't think we will, we need to CB early, round 3 at the latest. I know TE has a need, but think it can wait til round 4. Other than that your draft looks solid.
