i hope Brandon Jenkins from FSU slips to the 2nd. He's out for the year with an injury but DAMN can he rush the passer. Geno Smith in the 1st him in the 2nd would give this team cornerstones for the O and D to add with Mangold and Revis
first , get rid of that carsalesman we call GM. then we can position ourself to get rb Lattimore from S.Carolina. and cut or trade mr.glass (S.Greene ) for a draft pick. don't want to gamble on a qb in a first round again.
I see the Jenkins situation similar to that of Jared Crick this past year. A first round talent who falls cause he was out due to injury all year. However, I don't think Jenkins falls all the way to the 4th round like Crick did. I can see him impressing at the combine and going late 2nd or early 3rd round.
I would definitely take Jenkins though. I thought coming to this year that he was the best 3-4 OLB prospect. Yes, better than Jones & Mingo.
lattimore would be ideal for this team.. but than again so would a wr, qb, ol, or lb
Barkley is the top rated QB as of now, with Geno rapidly gaining ground.
Barkley, as you may know is a USC product with prototypical size and arm strength to make all the throws. However we've seen this out of every USC QB and how do they usually fair in the pros.
Geno Smith has decent size and good speed for a QB, although he's a little light in the azz, 215lbs (as of now, I'm sure he'll bulk up).
Manuel is a big kid with a rocket of an arm, in fact he is Josh Freeman all over again. If he can limit his lapses, he can carry a team with his arm.
Things will change as the season and combines come and go, but as of right now, it's hard not to like what Geno is capable of and want him first, followed by Barkley.
I heard someone mention Bray from Tenn. but that guy is missing the "it" factor.
Until a player reaches these PA numbers, lets not talk about how good they are.
The Following PA's are when sample size stabilizes
50 PA: Swing %
100 PA: Contact Rate
150 PA: Strikeout Rate, Line Drive Rate, Pitches/PA
200 PA: Walk Rate, Groundball Rate, GB/FB
250 PA: Flyball Rate
300 PA: Home Run Rate, HR/FB
500 PA: OBP, SLG, OPS, 1B Rate, Popup Rate
550 PA: ISO
Trade down and get additional 2nd and 4th.
1- Tyler Bray Tennessee QB
2- Chase Thomas Stanford OLB
2- (trade down) Desmond Trufant Washington CB
3- Tevin Reese Baylor WR
4- James Hurst North Carolina OT
4- (trade down) Zach Ertz Stanford TE
5- Josh Boyce TCU WR
Definitely too early for mocks but we need playmakers on offense and defense!! I love Zach Ertz though. He's been stuck behind Fleener and Toilolo at Stanford but he can be a great TE given his size and jumping ability. I, also, really like Josh Boyce. He's bigger and faster than Kerley and was the better WR in college.
Don't watch college football much but we need a WR!
