  1. prob best one ive come up with so far Jones = RT Waletzko = LT project, insurance for Becton Malone = sub-package pass rusher to start out but has the tools to get to the QB consistently
  2. went in a slightly different direction (this is if we attack OL in free agency) - we can really go hard to fix our defense
  3. Noticing draftnetwork and pff are all over the place as far as where some of these guys will fall.
  4. Gunna give cliff notes on a few players: I'm a big Fightin Irish fan - this kid Hamilton is an effin unicorn! Jamal Adams times 10. Also great run stopper - was a big problem for us. Aspects that really jump out to me: Football IQ: I haven’t seen many prospects in my time that see the game as cleanly and calmly as Hamilton. He moves at a different speed than the rest of the players on the field—both faster and slower when needed in both instances. He’ll pick up on keys from a deep post alignment and attack swiftly, oftentimes beating his LBs to the spot. But when he’s closer to the line of scrimmage, he’s content to slow-play the ball and allow the play to declare itself with patience before calling upon his elite athleticism to attack and rally to the football. Refined as a deep coverage defender and as a B-level/nickel defender against both the run and the pass. Versatility: What do you want him to do? He’ll do it. Seriously. I knew coming into my film study that he had the athletic profile to play all over the field but was blown away at just how diverse of a defender he was. Deep post safety, robber, sack WILL linebacker, nickelback, walked up on the line of scrimmage, the punt team—you name it. Hamilton has rare athletic gifts and they’ll allow him to fill a plethora of roles and reps on defense. He’s going to be a total headache to account for ahead of each and every snap for opposing offenses and has the potential to disrupt plenty of opposing concepts if the defense has a read on what they’re trying to accomplish each week Run Defending: Literally a cheat code in the run game. I’ve watched him fit up interior gaps from 12-15 yards of depth with consistency and without issue in uneven levels on the defense. His perimeter work, both from high-post alignment and in the nickel, is excellent. He’s swift to drive and attack blocks, beating them to the spot and then uncovering to square up the ball-carrier. He’s an effective tackler and his range is out-of-this-world good in this capacity. There's much more to him and if anyone wants me to post the full scouting report, I will. FS/CB Daxton Hill - projected as FS/Nickel Corner - figure play him inside. or at FS (depends how they would decide to play Hamilton), he also fits our system - perfect for cover 1 & cover 3. Football IQ: Hill has very impressive instincts and awareness. He shows the ability to read the quarterback's eyes in zone coverage and allows him to take him to the spot. He is quick to read and diagnose run plays and is very good at sniffing out screens and pick pattern concepts. Versatility: Hill is an extremely versatile player at the back end of this defense. He can play single-high free safety, nickel, outside corner, and even has aligned as a dime backer. His blend of athleticism and toughness are exactly what NFL defensive coordinators are looking for out of a defensive back as it allows them to be creative on where he is utilized. Competitive Toughness: A true football player. Hill is as tough as they come and always looks to deliver a blow upon contact. He plays the game the right way, playing through the whistle and always hustling to the ball even when the play goes the opposite way. His intensity and passion are evident and he plays much, much bigger than his frame should allow. Special Team: With Hill’s straight-line speed and toughness, he projects to be a rockstar on special teams from day one. He was very good playing special teams for the Wolverines covering kicks early on in his career and he will certainly be an asset in that phase of the game at the next level. WR Jalen Tolbert - hadn't seen this guy until today, watched some tape myself - kid is a baller! Ideal Role: X or Z receiver Scheme Fit: Scheme-versatile traits Run After Catch: Tolbert has a good mix of size, speed, and power that allows him to be a tough tackle running with the ball after the catch. Talbot has the speed to simply run away from defenders that he knows that he is faster than and he has the strength to power through smaller defenders and arm tackles to pick up extra yardage. Ball Skills: This player has flashed spectacular plays to showcase his ball skills. He does a good job of tracking the ball in the deeper portions of the field and if need be can use one hand to haul the pass in. He can make all of the tough catches with a defender draped over him but needs to improve on making the simple catches. At times, Tolbert has concentration drops in relatively easy pass-catching situations. Competitive Toughness: Tolbert's competitive traits come out in two aspects of his game. When blocking, Tolbert is a high-effort guy and tries to impose his physicality on defenders. And the other trait that shows his competitive toughness is his ability to make catches with defenders draped all over him. Tolbert shows determination and toughness to absorb the contact and still compete to catch the ball Big Play Ability: Tolbert has exceptional big-play ability. He has the speed to get on top of defenders and stack them so he can haul in the deep pass. He also is a threat on short to intermediate routes to score from wherever on the field. TE Jeremy Ruckert - another guy I wasn't super familiar with because I've been locked onto Tre McBride. *NOTE* I just started mocking heavy for this year the past couple of weeks.... learning about diff guys every few days. I like him a lot, not sure if I love him, Ohio State TEs always seem to transition to NFL kinda meh or worse. Hopefully he bucks the trend. Ideal role: Starting tight end, featured move piece Scheme tendencies: Split flow zone, 12-personnel-heavy groupings, vertical seam stretch in play-action. Hands: Ruckert’s hands are terrific—he hasn't been given very many targets but he certainly made the most of them. There are a number of eye-popping one-handed receptions on his resume in traffic and in tight congestion and those plays, along with good concentration on tight-window throws (Clemson, 2020) showcase how impactful he can be when the field is congested. His hands and length offer a large catch radius to help out his quarterback in instances in which the throw isn’t made with precision accuracy. Competitive Toughness: I appreciate how hard Ruckert plays despite never being a focal point of the offense. He’s got very good functional strength for a player of his stature, he plays fast and with enthusiasm as a blocker and will be a stout presence on leveraged blocks on the edge. He’s not a mauler in the run game but his role, if crafted with angular blocks, will be an impactful one for the running game. Big Play Ability: If you need a tightly-contested reception, you’d do well to throw to Ruckert if the defender has their back turned. He’s got good concentration and strong hands to squeeze the ball, making him dangerous and valuable in the red area. But expecting him to help create explosive plays in the passing game may be an ambitious ask. G Cole Strange - depth for now, hopefully develop into a RG (note - from small school, he def has the tools, but level of competition - gunna need some time to adjust) He also 6'6 301lbs Ideal Role: Developmental starting guard Scheme Fit: Zone Competitive Toughness: Strange is a nasty blocker with ideal temperament. He brings the fight on every snap and his motor always runs hot. He gets after people and keeps battling through the whistle. He has the edge teams are looking for. Balance: Strange is an aggressive blocker but is also controlled. He has good contact balance while playing with good bend and leverage. Overall, his coordination and weight distribution is ideal. Anchor Ability: Strange absorbs power well with his firm anchor. His commitment to playing with good bend and leveraged hips enables him to drop his anchor and hold his ground. His initial pop in his hands and stout anchor make it difficult for opponents to rush through him. Power at POA: Strange is a people-mover in the run game. His firm punch, leveraged hips, and powerful leg drive enable him to displace defenders and wide lanes. He has NFL-caliber power to exchange in the trenches. Football IQ: Strange’s football intelligence shines on tape. He has terrific spatial awareness and ability to adjust in pass protection. He has excellent timing in the run game and understands body positioning.
  5. You only spend on LT in top 8-9.... and we have one. We can get C at 10. Tyler Linderbalm will be there - makes more sense than wasting it on a LT we dont need or reaching for Center that will surely be there at 10
  6. One is already where he needs to be = plug and play - Hutchinson. Thibs has the upside, but you have to pray that the Jets can help him hit his PROJECTED ceiling. I don't trust the Jets or their luck in that department - give me the sure thing
  7. it's dicey. I like Hutchinson better. Slightly. Interesting article to read: THE PROS FOR BOTH PASS-RUSHERS Hutchinson, the PFF College Defensive Player of the Year, has several positives. At 6-foot-6, 265 pounds, he has an ideal blend of size, agility, power and technique. His 73 quarterback pressures led all Power 5 defenders, while his 25 stops against the run ranked eighth among the same group. While all the physical attributes are there, the ability he has shown as the leader of Michigan's defense is what makes Hutchinson the special kind of prospect worthy of the No. 1 pick. The Wolverines' coaching staff raves about Hutchinson's intangibles; his work ethic coming back from a broken leg in 2020 to take the Michigan program over the hump has become the stuff of legend. With him checking all the on-field and off-field boxes, it's difficult to see how he'd become a bust at the next level. But that can also be said about Thibodeaux, as the Oregon star's future plans don't just include football accolades. In fact, he wants to open his own school one day and be a force for change. He is a prospect with special physical tools and a special human being. Thibodeaux has the kind of get-off at the line of scrimmage that is almost unheard of for a 6-5, nearly 260-pound defensive end. Prospects with this kind of size and explosiveness don't need much in the way of pass-rushing moves to be an impact player, even at the NFL level. In fact, Thibodeaux earned a 91.5 pass-rushing grade this season without many pass-rushing moves to speak of whatsoever. If Thibodeaux can refine his bull rush and a counter off it, he can start racking up sacks from his first day in the NFL. Pairing him early in his career with a quality defensive line coach at the next level will be massive for him. THE CONS This is where Hutchinson separates himself, as it's difficult to look through his tape and find much to complain about. That's not too surprising, considering his 94.7 overall grade is the second-highest single-season mark we've ever awarded to a player since we started grading in 2014, behind only Ohio State defensive end Chase Young‘s 96.0 overall in 2019. Yes, that's higher than the grades of Nick and Joey Bosa, Myles Garrett and Bradley Chubb, who were all considered elite prospects in their time. However, the biggest difference between the Michigan star and many of the top defensive ends of the past decade is age: The 21-year-old Hutchinson is a senior, and Dion Jordan in 2013 was the last defensive end who went in the top three and wasn't a true junior. After three years at Michigan, Hutchinson wasn't close to a top-10-caliber prospect and was coming off a nondescript season that ended with a broken leg after just 149 snaps. He definitely qualifies as a bit of a one-year wonder. We can't say the same for Thibodeaux, a five-star prospect who put up 10 sacks as a freshman All-American in 2019. He has been the focal point for opposing offenses to game-plan for since he stepped onto the field. His biggest negative is that he hasn't fully developed from that player with elite traits who could impact the game via sheer physical advantage. Thibodeaux's weaknesses are obvious yet also very coachable. He too often still eschews pass-rushing technique for trying to out-athlete opposing tackles. If his initial move doesn't land, he is often stuck doing a whole lot of nothing — it's why you often saw some relatively quiet performances from him during the season. Of his 48 pressures this season, 27 came in three games — against Cal, UCLA and Oregon State. HE NFL COMPS Watching Hutchinson play, it's difficult not to hark back to former Chiefs and Vikings defensive end Jared Allen. Allen was 6-6, 265 and had several ways to win: He could beat you to the edge, beat you with power or beat you with his hands. Very much like Hutchinson, Allen made a living collapsing pockets and never being taken out of plays as a pass-rusher. For Thibodeaux, his get-off presents so many problems for opposing offensive tackles that it's easily the most distinct aspect of his game. Most NFL players with comparable first steps, however, don't have the kind of frame and size as Thibodeaux. And that's why the best comp for what Thibodeaux brings to the table is former Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora. Umenyiora came out of Troy weighing 279 pounds and still ran in the 4.6s in the 40-yard dash before trimming down to play around 260. At that size, his ability to get upfield was as good as it got in the NFL. Thibodeaux could easily be a similar kind of sack artist in the league. THE BOTTOM LINE With two elite prospects at a high-value position, there's really not a wrong answer here for the Jaguars or Lions at the top of the draft. To chase Thibodeaux's theoretical “upside,” though, one has to admit that Hutchinson's “upside” is nothing to sneeze at either. Hutchinson has every physical tool necessary to be among the elite edge rushers in the NFL. At that point, chasing what one player could be when another already is would be an unnecessary risk with such a premium draft slot at No. 1 overall. Why draft a lottery ticket like Thibodeaux when Hutchinson is like cash in the bank that can still accrue massive interest? The only question left to be answered is whether the Jags or Lions will agree.
  8. Tre McBride (my clear favorite, must draft early 2nd if available imo) FULL Scouting report: Trey is a 4th year Senior who aligns at TE for the Rams offense. He is a good athlete with regards to agility and movement skills. In the run game, he's not an over powering inline blocker but he plays with physical toughness at the point of attack. In the passing game he has excelled as the primary receiving target for that offense. He does a good job uncovering and plays with sufficient straight line speed. His football instincts makes him effective against zone defenses. He displays good, strong hands to make catches away from his frame. He has enjoyed success as the primary target on offense and has been extremely productive. On 3rd downs, he is a versatile asset that displays the skill set to align at H, FB, TE or Y. His toughness, speed and agility projects him well as a core special teams player. Ideal Role: Y or F Scheme Fit: Spread offensive scheme, multiple offense FILM EVALUATION Written by Drae Harris Games watched: SDSU (2021), SJSU (2021), UNM (2021) Best Game Studied: UNM Worst Game Studied: SDSU Hands: He has good hands and catch radius. He easily catches the football when contact is imminent. He doesn't allow the ball to get into his frame and has very strong mitts to pluck the football out of the air. Route Running: Theres noting glaringly deficient with his ability as a route runner. He certainly has the speed and agility to separate. However with regards to nuance in the position, I feel like McBride still has room for improvement to maximize his separation Versatility: This players versatility may be his strongest attribute. He is equally proficient at aligning at Y, F, H or FB. He also projects as a good core special teams player, as well. Competitive Toughness: He displays good competitive toughness, particularly as an inline blocker. He is also good in contested catch situations, showing competitiveness as well. His functional strength is effective for playing in tight alignments and working in the box. Ball Skills: He has good ball skills along with outstanding hand eye coordination. He does a good job tracking the deep ball. He also shows good hands to secure the catch and his catch radius is going to provide his quarterback with a big target. Blocking Skills: McBride is a willing inline blocker. He is not overpowering but does a good job of holding the point of attack to stay sticky and engage in defensive linemen when called upon to occupy. Football IQ: He plays with good IQ. He is instinctive and crafty as a route runner. He also shows his IQ to not run into zone coverage underneath; instead choosing to sit down and make himself available to his quarterback. RAC Skills: He has proven through his big plays that he has value after the catch. He is a good athlete who will threaten the defense with his elusiveness in space Pass Protection: He is a willing pass protector. He is physically tough and competitive which helps him where he lacks true technique in pass pro. Big Play Ability: He is a big play TE who has been extremely productive. He has been their primary receiver and the person their offense runs through.

New York Jets Cade Hall EDGE, San Jose State Trades: TRADE 1 RECEIVED Round 1 Pick 4 Derek Stingley Jr. CB, LSU Round 3 Pick 69 Kingsley Enagbare EDGE, South Carolina Round 1 Pick 8 Andrew Booth Jr. CB, Clemson Round 2 Pick 43 Trey McBride TE, Colorado State Round 3 Pick 74 Kyler Gordon CB, Washington Round 2 2022 Draft TRADE 2 RECEIVED Round 2 Pick 51 Isaiah Spiller RB, Texas A&M Round 4 Pick 113 Hassan Haskins RB, Michigan Round 2 2022 Draft Not sure about WR Drake London falling to the 2nd round... websites projecting him anywhere from early-mid 1st round to early 2nd round. draft network has him as 2nd round value. PFF has him as 1st round value. Either way - dude is 6'5 210, strong hands, very good route runner, good RAC (especially for such a big guy), now this is why I love him for the Jets: Ball Skills: He has outstanding ball skills. He has an uncanny ability to track the deep ball. He also has an outstanding catch radius and jumping ability. So even off targeted throws he can clean up and make the QB look good. & Big Play Ability: He is a big-play threat whenever his number is called. He has the speed to beat you vertically and he will likely win the contested catch. He’s a surprisingly dangerous runner with the ball in his hands, as well. Those Wisconsin LBs are everything I love in a defensive player. They play mean and hard, especially chenal - known as the meanest/toughest enforcer in the Big 10. If hits you square - you're feeling it the next day. Like him for a lot of forced fumbles resulting from hard hits at the next level. ' The rb spiller draws comparisons to Joe Mixon...him and carter would compliment each other perfectly
  10. Not singling you out per se... ive seen a lot of people with the williams pick at 10 - i feel like it carries risk... as with any knee injury. They of course say he will make full recovery bla bla bla... but risk the 10th pick to do it?
  11. He’s supposedly gunna make a full recovery and will retain his 4.3-4.4 speed. It’s a risk but you look at the ceiling... it may be worth risk (if they decide to trade back tho) while mocking, I did a trade back with philly in a couple mocks where I got their 2 1st rounders (15,16), 2nd (51), 2022 4th. I’m not sure if you guys like that but I think it’s a solid return. Seattle’s 10th pick, 15, 16, and 3 2nd rounders - could plug a lot of holes Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  12. To be fair, when you look at last year, he caught everything passed in his vicinity from Darnold - even the bad throws away from his body. His route tree is just severely limited.
  13. wayyyy too early to gauge when guys will go. I guess, being that it's a bye week ill do one and edit this post later but it's too far out to realistically gauge how it goes beyond the top 10... will list scouting reports too. set up our picks as far as vegas odds for us and seattle (3 & 14) and I didn't make any trades... Took FS (extremely versatile), C, and OLB edge rusher but also can fall back into coverage https://www.profootballnetwork.com/kyle-hamilton-notre-dame-s-nfl-draft-scouting-report-2022/ https://www.profootballnetwork.com/tyler-linderbaum-iowa-oc-nfl-draft-scouting-report-2022/ https://www.profootballnetwork.com/nik-bonitto-oklahoma-olb-nfl-draft-scouting-report-2022/
  14. Got in at .04, .05 (had 3000 shares by then), then another 375 shares when it was at 0.29... just holding it - see what it is in a year or 2... then see what's up. I also have a couple shares of ETH
  15. Nah in mocks i did on thedraftnetwork, PFF and fanspeak - he was going late - 6th/7th
  16. TE Kenny Yeboah, Ole Miss CB/S Trill Williams, Syracuse (biggest surprise for me that he didn't get drafted) C Drake Jackson, Kentucky CB Shakur Brown, Michigan State
  17. C Drake Jackson, Kentucky - grab him in 6th maybe? short arms, but he's fast, smart, good hand placement, solid initial punch. worth a flyer in 6th imo. has 4 years of experience in sec
  18. If you want to protect your QB, it would behoove you to pick guys that fit your scheme or else get guys who can't move and your RB sucks and/or QB gets destroyed. I agree with not going for a small guy like that. As an ILB I wouldn't care those measurable or even the tweener SS/LB 225-230lbs... as long as they have the speed that goes with the tweener size
  19. Moore gives us a HR threat but not exactly sure why they grabbed a WR after keeping Crowder, drafting MIms last year, signing Davis & Cole (Cole being depth piece), and we still have Berrios who's a good WR3/4... We have a gaping hole at RB and CB. And of course broncos trade up the very next pick to grab Javonte Williams. I'm not mad at the pick because he was a projected 1st rounder, and it gives Wilson a true burner across the middle. He gets comparison to Steve Smith Sr. It's a bold comparison, we will see if it translates.
  20. I like in this order for round 2, don't want the edge rusher: RB Javonte Williams, North Carolina (5'9, 212lbs) - He's my RB1 in this draft, reminds me of a bigger, more violent version of Aaron Jones. Just plays mean and he can move too. 4.55/4.58 40, not burner speed, but for a guy his size - like getting hit with a freight train. https://www.cbssports.com/fantasy/football/news/javonte-williams-nfl-draft-profile-fantasy-football-fits-scouting-report-pro-day-stats-40-yard-dash-mor LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, Notre Dame (6'1 1/2, 221lbs) - I have a bias towards ND players, but most people would say this guy would fit on our weak side in the 4-3, he's kind of a tweener between LB and Safety at his size, but I love that he's explosive, quick, and agile. He plays a very physical brand of football, excellent blitzer, and he can fall back into coverage and cover the slot/te or RBs down low. He may need to work on his processing a bit, but with the coach we have I feel like all the physical tools are there for him to become an all pro LB. Top CB on Jets Draft Board
  21. 1. Obvious QB pick 2. Most promising Edge rusher in draft - pair him with Lawson 3. Plug and play RG Wyatt Davis, big time Mauler that is agile and good in space - fits our scheme that requires athleticism, speed and agility on the line. 4. made a trade with the 3rd rounder 2nd pick - didn't trade back too far, and was able to get a 2023 2nd... they wouldn't give me a 2022 3rd so I tried to a 2023 2nd with it and no other picks... it worked. Drafted RB who fits our new scheme, fast stop-go RB who can make sharp cuts, great pass catcher, 6.6 yds a rush. 5. RT Spence Brown, eventual starter... let him sit/play in spots for a year and then start - looks promising. 6. CB Trill Williams - Yonkers guy +, gets comparison to James Bradberry, high football IQ, physical, versatile man/zone guy, best either at wide corner or safety. If a team is looking for a Swiss Army knife to play the matchups with in the secondary, Williams can be that guy. 7. TE Tommy Tremble - we need to replace our TEs, I started with this guy, solid route running, can play FB like lead blocker. Can line him up in the lot. 8. Didn't like anything traded back for 2 picks and took best player available in Bobby Brown III - projected 1 technique. 9. EDGE Patrick Jones II - subpackage rush guy. very solid pass rushing skills. 10. TE Kenny Yeboah - gets comparisons to Chris Herndon, without the off field bs.
