If we're in around 12... attempt to trade down to low teens/20 and go with Eifert while picking up another 4th... doubt we'd get a third but you never know if there's someone desperate enough.
Go FS/CB/DE in round 2 - which ever is the BPA with the 2 picks.
Would like to see them toy with the idea in these last few games of moving Jerry to RT and giving Samuda a look at RG which if it was an option could mean a ZBS LG could be on the billing in rounds 3 or 4 to solidify a young athletic OL of Martin/Draft Pick/Pouncey/Samuda/Jerry.
I'd also like to see Reed [TE-Florida] or Toilolo [TE-Standford] in rounds 3 or 4 also. to give us a nice young, athletic, target rich set of TE's - added to Clay and keep Fasano around for a year or two leadership within that group.
i'm not a woerner top pick guy either...if i can get mingo which seems crazy to me given his tools and how he's gonna test with our top pick i run the card up...no question in my mind...i get that he lacks strength in his upper body and will be liability as a run defender but i would take that guy right now as my pass rush specialist opposite wake and develop the rest of his game in a nanosecond...those tools are too damn good and on that length...
give me mingo...he's a top 5 talent imo
i don't see jarvis jones as the end all be all prospect at olb...i just don't get they hype there...i fail to see elite rush tools and get off the ball and when i hear von miller like prospect i say pump the damn brakes
hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
Jones is still the top OLB prospect.... might even be looked at as a LB by 4-3 teams.
The kid gets it done on the football field, unlike Mingo.
The next Von Miller is a bit ambitious... but he's a more well rounded player than Von Miller was at aTm. It's not as if you snuffed out Von Miller anyway. There was a time you didn't buy into him either.
Hell, Jones' sack/forced fumble on one play vs. Alabama in the 1st quarter of the SEC title game was more than Mingo has ever done against Alabama in 4 games.
It's just incredibly ironic to point out Jones being run at by Alabama, and turn around and chirp out Barkevious Mingo in the same breath. That poor kid has been dominated his entire career by Bama running right at him.
anyways like i said prior i'm fine if you and i disagree about mingo...no problem...the production hasn't been there all that much this year...i'll bet on the upside length and tools...
we can disagree about jarvis jones also...i'm not seeing top 5 worthy pass rush talents there...
I'm not as high on Mingo, Werner or Dion Jordan as some of you. Someone compared Jordan to JPP and JT...he might have the build of JT but he's no JT and JPP has him by 40 lbs. I've not seen Jordan do anything but speed rush, he gets owned every time they run at him, he can't bull rush...he's strictly a speed rusher and I don't see elite pass rushing tools from him. I like his athleticism and the fact that he can drop back in coverage but that's OLB tools for a 3-4 team IMO. Mingo is another guy that I think is a better fit for a 3-4 as an OLB. I just didn't see enough as a DE for LSU to make me think this guy was elite. Sam Montgomery made a heck of a lot more plays for that defensive line. Werner I've never been very high on but I think he has a lot more functional strength and decent explosion to be good at the next level but he's not top 15 IMO.
