right now i'm guessing conklin falls to the jets and they fix 2 big issues at once.  i don't think decker would be the pick since he seems destined for the right side.

if conklin is not there, i could see them trading back as they only have 6 picks.  i just don't think mccags will take a defensive player at 20.

I think is between Spence, Floyd or Lee.

But idk if both Floyd or Lee will be there at 20, and Spence has the off the field problems.

MacC needs all of his draft picks to contribute at a level appropriate for the Round selected.  I worry that Leonard Floyd has too much bust potential.  That skill set/profile tends to do better in college where they can run around T's than in the pros where the linemen are generally quicker.

What recent NFL Edge defender has the same measurables as Floyd?  Maybe Ware after bulking up.

If we stay at 20, we gotta go Lynch or which ever pass rush specialist they believe in... I just don't believe in selecting a RT there. It's too easy to get that in FA or in other rounds

I'd rather they take a sure thing OT than reach on a QB or pass rusher, especially Floyd. The bust rate on Floyd and Lynch is way higher.

Dear god, no. I wouldn't even take Connor Cook in the 4th round.

Went back and watched most of Cook's games. There's no doubt in my mind he can play at the next level. I think he needs a year to settle down and make smarter throws, because a lot of his passes are forced short throws in traffic. IMO a lot of those throws have to do with the offense they run at MS, they run a lot of crossing routes and are not a vertical offense. If you watch the games, a very high % of his forced throws are on target and even caught.  Some are just bad, which is where I believe he needs to settle down and be smarter. 

He has high velocity (though, not the best deep ball), sometimes amazing accuracy (overall good accuracy), good footwork, delivers accurately under pressure, comes from a pro-style offense, athletic (can run, but it's not his first instinct), goes through progressions (would like to see improvement here as well), very good awareness, and he'll play tough through injury. I'm not going to put too much emphasis on how much he's won in his career, but there's a lot of smart people who have said "you've never seen a loser in college win in the NFL". He's only been blown out once in college and that was his final game against Bama in the playoffs (which he played decently despite being injured). He gets the ball out really quick, there's no denying this. I haven't seen anyone keep count of how quick he gets the ball out, but he does it better than most I've seen at the college level (not saying I've watched many in depth). That said, I would still like to see improved anticipation. I don't have the all-22 access (if there's a free site that anyone knows about, please let me know), but I've seen throws with perfect anticipation from him, and I've seen some that were late.

Another knock against him is his completion percentage. Throughout the day, I watched 5 games from 2015, and I wouldn't be shocked if his receivers as a whole dropped 35-40 balls on the season. So, I'm not putting too much stock into that. Some of his incompletions are solely on him, and are dangerous. This is also where he needs to settle down. I think he's used to getting the ball out so quickly that he's found a niche when it comes to trying to fit the ball in tight windows. This is also a real concern.

He does a lot of things well, there were a few plays I watched today that Cook read perfectly presnap, knew his guy would be open, purposely looked off the LB/DB and came back to a wide open receiver for the 1st down. 

I understand that people don't like him, but I really believe the only legitimate knock against him is his forced throws translating to the NFL. It's a real concern, one that I'm willing to take because after watching all these games today, I'm convinced that Michigan State only has about 15 plays in their playbook. 

 

Criticize this if you want, but I'm very convinced he'll be taken in the first round.

floyd or decker (if decker falls)... but def floyd if he falls to 20... I looked at the grading scale and noah spence seems to scream 2nd rounder. If both Decker and Floyd are gone, i can see them going Eli Apple
