In response to mbeaulieu07's comment:
Could say the same thing about Urban or even a Stinson, IMO. I think Urban is pretty underrated by most publications.
I'm still hoping they target front 7 (where we agree) or Kelvin Benjamin in Rd 1... don't really see a true TE outside of Ebron that I like in that range and that includes Niklas, ASJ and Amaro.
Yeah I'm not seeing a TE I'd spend a 1st on either. CJ or Niklas in the 2nd, by all means but none in the 1st. I want to go front 7 in the 1st and more preferably front 4. I'm just not seeing a lot of LB's I'd spend a 1st on either. Not overall impressed with Ford. Think he's a bit 1 dimensional for a 1st round pick, Van Noy might sneak in there but for some reason he doesn't scream 1st rounder to me either, Attaochu to me you can put with Murphy, Smith, and Van Noy and roll the dice with any of them in the 2nd. But, unless Ealy falls (Something I don't see) or you want to convert Donald to a elephant (possible) I just don't see any LB I want to spend a 1st on. This draft is looking more and more to me as you either grab Tuitt, Nix, or Hageman in the 1st or you trade back to no later than the mid 2nd.
Mid 2nd you should have your choice of Niklas, CJ, Smith, Attaochu, Van Noy, Murphy, D. Jones, or Ferguson.
As for WR, after watching some more film I'm not seeing a large difference between Benjamin and Moncreif (well other than 2"). Clearly Benjamin has the size you drool over but Moncreif has blazing speed with great size too. They both have similar catching ability and similar route running. I think the prime difference is who was throwing them the ball and the offense they ran. You flip programs and I think Mocreif would be the back of the 1st prospect while Benjamin would be the late 2nd.
I also wouldn't rule out Coleman either. Even recovering from his knee injury he still out ran Benjamin and his hands improved through the season so he can learn. The biggest question for me is if he can learn the system. Reports are Harrison is having a hard time grasping basic routes so is it the season they played for or the player? If it's the player and Coleman can get the system he could be a prime example of a player in a bad system then otherwise might have goen top 20 in a receiver friendly system.
Coleman could very well be in the picture... the size and connection is certainly there... just a matter of where he's targeted. If we're talking Rd 3 or preferably Rd 4, then I'd more OK with it than if we're talking Rd 2. There are a number of kids that I like over him in this class.
Yeah, 3 inches and 20 or so pounds on Moncrief... I just think he presents more matchup problems for a defense and I'm a guy who really likes Moncrief.
Believe it or not, McShay has Latimer in Rd 1 of his latest mock, for whatever that's worth.
