I haven't made my mind up yet on this Wilkerson kid Mb, lol. Mayock likes him but Mayock should know better. Level of Competition alone dictates a 1 round drop.
At 17 I'm all about getting a safe pick. I want the player to be in a position of need such as OLB, DE, or OL. But it has to be a safe pick. If Watt makes it to 17, we run up there but I would wait to see if he's there at 12. DAL, WAS and HOU are all threats to take him. All are 34 teams. WAS has to get rid of Haynesworth and Watt would make a ton of sense. One of those teams is taking Prince Amukamara. WAS could take Jones or Green so HOU is my biggest worry at 11 to take Watt because Wade Phillips is switching to a 34 and Watt fits the bill. Other than MIA who is set at DE teams between 12-16 are all 43 teams where A. Smith, Kerrigan and even Jordan make better sense than Watt.
If BB stays put and Watt is gone I'm taking best OT or Pouncey. I just don't see any other options. I'll look at Kerrigan hard but I don't think BB would take a conversion type this high. I will also look at Jordan but I don't think he's a good fit at 34 DE yet. He could grow into it but he'd be another nickel DL rush end. This is why with all the picks we have, we need to package one of them, 60, 74, or 94 and just go up and get Watt or Jones or someone who can be an impact player.
I'd even go 28/17 to land Miller. If you consider we could be picking at 1-5, 2-1, 2-28, 3-10 and 3-28 and we're a freakin 14-2 team, why the heck not?!?!?! We could be basically picking as a 2-14 team and a 14-2 team if you look at where our picks are. The only teams that come close are: DEN 1-2, 2-4, 2-14, 3-3 and SD 1-18, 2-18, 2-29, 3-18, 3-25. We have 1 more pick than Denver in this range and the same picks as SD but ours are better at each spot except the last one.
I want one headliner, Watt or Miller. With 28 or 33 we move back to get a pair of 2nds and start rebuilding the OL.
