This is the player who bothers me more than any other as to the thought of passing up a play maker at #19. Hard to watch him and not be reminded of Tavon Austin- so many great plays to look at, here's one I like because of the release, play starts at 5:05 and you can see an iso of his fantastic release at 5:22
So fast, so quick, so smooth and this dude is strong. He short, but he's Steve Smith size at 5-9 3/4 190 lbs. As to the lack of height I say screw it, put him in the slot and good luck to opposing secondaries covering him and Wallace, with Hartline working the sidelines and Rishard Matthews doing his thing. Hopefully Gibson comes back full strength, we'll see.
The question is, can you wait on a RT? I keep seeing a late round solution in Matt Patchan, who looks healthy to me and the talent is undeniable.
Can you wait for a RT??
1. WR Brandin Cooks
2. OLB Kyle Van Noy
3. OG Trai Turner
4. TE CJ Fiedorowicz
5. MLB Preston Brown
6. OT Matt Patchan
7. Take a flier on whatever good OL ina deep draft is available- Charles Leno, Wesley Jouhnson, Spencer Long, Anthony Steen, Zach Fulton, maybe a late round flier on a WR/KR like John Brown or a talented wild card like OLB Adrian Hubbard or DT Demonte McCallister. Plenty of options. To me Patchan could be the key, and I've become a believer after researching a bit as to what happened to him as per the litany of injuries- two scooter accidents, shot in the park, I doubt those things are going to happen again. Worth the gamble imo, big payoff if he stays health, the talent is there.
