Nixon is a boss tackle for the Gators who could compete with Dotson and Frederick is the second best OC/OG player in the draft behind B. Jones. He could replace Larsen or at least sure up our depth inside and allow Meredith to move back to tackle. Frederick could eventuall replace Joseph when the time comes if he does well enough.
I dont think Swope would be a great fit, Id like Stills more than him. Id take either of them over Danny Amendola for sure tho.
Why don't you like Fauria? Bigger, faster and stronger than Stocker. Big kid good hands good blocker, should of gone early 3rd.
Bwall, I think we are finally on the same page lol.
My top 5:
Brian Winters, OT - Kent State
@Aecon, I love that you mentioned that Howard linebacker in your list. He really impressed me to this week. I think he'll be a solid starting linebacker in a few years. He would be on my list if we hadn't already drafted Brown last round.
Bwall, I live in Gainesville. I know who Xavier Nixon is lol. I said I have the same guys on my board besides Fauria. I think he'll be a 6th-7th round pick in the draft. I know people try to compare him to Gronk, but I don't see it. I wouldn't mind taking a risk on him in the 5th maybe, but he's not a 3rd rounder IMO (Btw, he pulled his groin again the other day in practice. I think this is three times in 2 years).
& Have you ever seen Swope or Stills play? Swope may not be speedy, but he runs great routes, has great hands, and is tough and physical enough to play at the next level. I think Stills lacks NFL physicality and drops too many passes to be chosen over Swope.
1. Rick Wagner - In all honesty, I thought he was gone already. He would've been a 1st or 2nd round draft pick if he had jumped to the NFL last year. I think reuniting him with his college line coach will do wonders for the guy. A steal if he falls ten more picks.
2. Ryan Swope
3. Marcus Lattimore
4. Le'Veon Bell
5. Kenny Stills
6. Travis Kelce
7. Jon Bostic
8. Zeke Motta - Best remaining FS in the draft
9. Xavier Nixon - Should have been a special OT. Injuries and inconsistent teammates doomed his once promising outlook. Will probably be a 5th rounder.
10. Stansly Maponga - Probably the best pure pass-rusher remaining in the draft. People are down on him because of his lack of height, but he's the type of athlete we could really use on our team Would be a great grab with our late 4th or 5th.
