    A lot more to go so you never know but it just feels like we picked a player that isn't something we absolutely need.

    I have a feeling they are going to address the o-line with their next pick.

    Speed off the edge, is that actually possible?

    baun is too small for LB that Patricia likes...but Okwara is a reach for sure.

    They did get a good grade though for picking him.

    Didn't check the box of being related to a current player....


    but yea, surprised just as you are to see that Baun is still available. Wonder what that is about.

    Okwara seems pretty light for an edge in Patricia's defense.

    small pass rushing lb he is around 230 lbs...that is not a good size for someone coming off the edge.

    There is our guard. Instead of two bad players fighting for two spots, now dahl and wiggins fight for one.

    Some conflicting reports

    Draft Scouting Report:

    Rating: 81

    Strengths:

    Consistently wins with vice grips for hands
    Knows how to reset his hands if blockers counter him
    Has just enough foot quickness to mirror, above-average at second level
    Stellar balance in his anchor

    Weaknesses:

    Just an average athlete for the guard spot
    Routinely plays with minimal knee bend at all
    Could get a little more powerful in his lower half

    Second Report

    Guard/center prospect whose run-blocking and pass protection tape are polar opposites. He's not a natural bender and the hand placement is rough, making sustaining blocks a challenge. However, the narrow base as a drive blocker turns into a wide, balanced base in pass sets. He's a terrific processor of twists and blitzes who expedites his process and finds his work. If a team can improve the hands and body control they might have something, but he's more likely a backup option for teams targeting pass protection inside at guard or center.
    Strengths

    Offers potential center/guard flexibility
    Continued improvement throughout the season
    Good base width and lateral slides in pass pro
    Very effective in handling twists
    Ties quick punch with rapid recognition to alter his targets
    Smooth skip pull and lateral footwork
    Ability to run second level blocks vertically on outside zone
    Finds his target and pathway as climb blocker
    Plays with desired aggression

    Weaknesses

    Plays too tall landing run blocks way up the frame
    Unable to sink and create leverage points
    Inconsistent adjustments to stunting defenders
    Slow to activate hands and land them accurately
    Narrow base for man blocking causes him to melt off
    Body control can get away from him
    Could struggle against NFL length in protection

    I walked away for a minute thinking we weren't picking for a bit. Anyone know what we gave up to move up. I don't know if we really needed to move up to get him, did we.

    Jackson probably won't start so you still get to see Dahl and Wiggins, and Garnett, and Aboushi, and maybe Benenoch possibly Benzschawel. Wow, that's a lot of Guards.
