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
I think Zack Martin is better than recent guards like Zeitler, DeCastro, Cooper, Warmack.
Jernigans really good with his hands separating and disengaging in the run game. The guy just knows how to use leverage and hands to get off blocks.
Jake Matthews clearly best tackle past 2 years. I just have players at other positions rated higher than him overall.
Bridgewater's last grade was because I was worried about his size but I have no doubt he is a franchise quarterback. He is so damn accurate. He's good with his eyes moving safeties and goes through his progression well. He also is pretty good when having to improv.. made a few Manziel type plays in the 1st half against Miami..There's a lot to like. I was just concerned with him being listed 196 on Louisville's roster. He has had a few minor injuries at Louisville and been nicked up already. But I don't see that as a problem. Brady looked like a toothpick in college and still does anyway. Besides that torn acl in 08 he's never missed a start. Houston will take him 100% O'Brien doesn't take that job without taking Bridgewater #1.
Murphy is an edge setter without elite explosion but makes up for it with good snap anticipation. High motor guy that can win the edge with quick hands, walk tackles back with his bull rush.. and counter to the inside. He may not always be a double digit sack guy every year. But he is the right place in the right time pass rusher with a complete game. Kind of like a Rob Ninkovich type player. He has a good arsenal in his pass rush and can play frontside blocks.
Jimmy Garoppolo was really close to making this. But I'm not sure if he is a franchise quarterback so I gave him a 2nd round grade
Garoppolo has a chance to rise in the Shrine Game/practices and the Senior Bowl/practices
any reason you don't have bortles up there?
Manziel is going to be a big time playmaker at the next level. Sure he's going to be a headache off the field at times but I'll be floored if he gets out of the top ten.
Kyle Van Noy is way underrated. Very instinctual three down linebacker. I think he goes top 25.
Trent Murphy will be a real solid pro. Reminds me of Bjorn Werner last year. Does everything, wows you with nothing.
I too believe Mack goes top ten ahead of Barr...
Verrett from TCU is one of the top thirty two players in this draft IMO. The only reason for him to fall is size.
Another guy who has my attention is Richard Rodgers from Cal. I'm not talking top thirty two here but I think he'll work his way up to maybe the second round.
One other thing. Its hard to figure out where David Fales' stock is but thats the QB I'd keep an eye on.
