What's so great about Tuitt...not seeing it. What sticks out to you? I don't agree with more than a few of your rankings, but definitely like a fresh look and a different perspective which you're offering. Seem low on Mack too, who I really like. Also Hageman?
This isn't a one year fix. You don't win in free agency. We're finally trying to build long-term. It will come down to how we draft.
1. Eli Apple, William Jackson III, Zeke Elliott, Robert Nkemdiche
2. Karl Joseph, Jonathon Bullard, Cody Whitehair, Emmanuel Ogbah, Bronson Kaufusi
3. Christian Westerman, Joe Dahl, Kenneth Dixon, Justin Simmons, Blake Martinez
Day 3. CJ Prosise, Victor Ochi, Kevin Byard, Alex Collins, Jordan Howard, Isaac Semuelo
When you think how many DEs and DTs are usually taken in round 1, it's pretty interesting to see how little consensus there is over whether anyone is a worthy first-rounder. I like Easley a lot I have to say, but he's torn both ACLs now and that has to be a concern. Donald can be unblockable in college, but I agree he could end up only being a nickel rotation player in the pros. DaQuan Jones is a guy I like a lot, but you'd struggle to put him in Round 1 territory.
It's really not a deep class for d-line at all.
I want to like Derek Carr (love the tools, the arm, the winning mentality), but I can't get enthusiastic about him as a high first round talent. I certainly would be very nervous drafting him to start in the coming season. He gets too pumped up and starts overthrowing everything. Way to jittery a player for me, not sufficiently in control of the adrenaline. When the NFL-level heat comes on, I don't like the thought of how that natural "nervous energy" would manifest itself. With a clipboard in his hands for a season or so he might calm down, but then I wouldn't be taking him in the top 10, or top 20 for that matter.

this list was from before bowl season.. I am in the processing of updating it now and it looks a bit different. Will post a new thread by the end of the week. Thanks.
