    Jacksonville 2015 Draft Grades

    JAX came into the draft with no major holes in the starting lineup for the first time in about 5 years. This draft was going to be used to address some needs to replace overpriced, declining vets and add depth at other positions. The goal was to find the heir apparent at ROLB, MLB, and TE. With stud Rookie MLB Zuzek going in the top 5, the Jax mind trust turned their attention to Marks, who over the offseason, led to Kellen Winslow's release. Winslow has had a dramtic physical regression the last few years, and at almost 10M/year, Marks is a major upgrade.

    Biggest Surprise: RE Antonie Bellamy - 85 overall - 2nd round - Bellamy finaly fills a void at the pesky RE position that JAX has struggled with for years. With Bellamy and Dunbar at end, the pass rush should finally make the next step

    Biggest Bust: MLB Oliver Drake - 70 Overall - 3rd Round - Drake was selected int he hopes that he would show some flashes in training camp that he could step in for Poslusky. He will have to makes some huge leaps in his rookie year to even stay on the roster for 2016.

    Bills Draft Recap:

    Picking dead last has its drawbacks. Having a roster thats already filled with depth makes roster decisions very difficult. This draft for the Bills was really about finding roles/players that we wouldn't otherwise have. With so little time left in the cycle to develop talent, cutting veterans is a risky proposition in order to take a lesser talented, younger player. In picking players that have unique skills, the Bills were able to justify the roster decisions.

    1st round, 32nd overall pick - CB Isaiah Smith - Word is that the Bills really coveted CB Tamarcus Finley that ended up going to the hated Chiefs but they had 2 CBs they liked in round 1 and they ended up with Smith here. He's taller than most CBs, has better wheels than any of the CBs on the Bills roster, has top notch man coverage skills already and has soft hands. Expect him to see 5th CB/rotational/situational roles until he has time to work on the other key areas like zone, press and play recognition. Down the road Smith should be a star, but we likely wont see it in his first or even 2nd year.
    [​IMG]

    2nd round - HB Kahlil Russell - You won't see much in the way of attributes on Russell but what you will notice is his tremendous size at 250+ pounds and his tremendous trucking ability. Going back to what we said from the get go, this draft was about finding talent/roles that the Bills wouldn't otherwise have and Russell fits the bill here. His arrival means the Bills will likely offload one of their other backs unfortunately, and I know they like all of them for different reasons. Russell is a talent that must stick though, he brings the pain and with Buffalo's offensive line being one of the best in the league, Russell could find a niche in the Bills stable.
    [​IMG]

    3rd round - P Nico Midgett - One of the strangest characters and strangest names in all of football, Midgett bring his impressive NCAA record setting resume to the pros. He's quirky, speaks fluently in over 10 languages, and knows how to kick the shit out of the football. Midgett will be a kickoff specialist as well as a booming punter, allowing the Bills to play field position as they often like to do. The Bills now have maybe the longest/biggest leg duo of any special teams unit in the league. Departed P Shaun Powell should not have any trouble finding work elsewhere however, he will be great for another team.
    [​IMG]

    4th round - WR unknown - Cut

    5th round - FS Peniel Dorsey - All the Bills wanted in a reserve safety was someone who could run and hit. Dorsey fits the billing. Nothing special here - just a special teams player that likely won't see much time on the field. Has wheels though, which led to the cutting of veteran SS Chris Prosinksi, who has since caught on in Pittsburgh.
    [​IMG]

    6th round - WR Trey Glass - Coach K has preached to the league for quite some time about the value of the "undrafted," unscoutable players at the end of the draft. Trey Glass is one of those valuable players. Word on the street is that Kansas City has also snagged one even better in WR Kenny Timm. In any case, Glass brings world class speed and agility to the WR position and at 6'1, still can run some good routes to get open. Unfortunately he has a lot of holes in his game, but don't be surprised to see Buffalo try to get him the ball a few times a game to see if he can pop a big play here or there and draw double coverage with his record breaking speed.

    7th round - LB unknown - Cut

    New England Patriots Recap:

    1st rounder- WR Treon Patrick
    Most people speculated we were after Phraroah Phillips with this pick, but had we of been, we would have traded up much higher to insure we got him. We have Jay Macon and even though we traded for a QB in the pre season, we had no interest in grabbing Phillips with this pick. It came down to between Patrick and a CB (granted had we of known we were going to have our RG retire on us after the draft, we would have taken Kendrick Rose). Instead, with the retirement of Steve Smith, we decided to take Patrick. Patrick has 97 speed with 94 acceleration and almost 90 agility. He's another Steve Smith in the making. After seeing how our offense worked the last 3 weeks of the regular season and the entire playoffs with Smith out due to injury, we realized Ted Ginn wasn't going to be able Smith's replacement and had to go in the draft. We only gave up the 17 and 30th overall pick to grab him, and a 3rd rounder (we had the Colts 3rd rounder that we held onto) so we felt like it wasn't that big of a loss. Overall, I'm happy with Patrick and feel like it was a good pick for us.

    2nd rounder- LT Nikolas Voger
    Nikolas came in with pretty solid attributes in the 80's in strength and all of his blocking attributes. He'd be a great replacement for whenever Soldier decides to hang it up and would be a guy we kept in the organization for as long as we could to develop. He probably won't see the field too much this year though. Still a good pick for our 2nd round.

    3rd rounder- TE Drew Vayo- 79 speed, 86 catching, 72 Run Blocking-
    With the top two TE's on our board gone (didn't expect them to fall) we took a chance on Drew to be our third tight end behind Gronkowski and Hernandez to give them a breather every now and then. He's nothing spectacular, but is a decent enough replacement for when these guys get tired. Nothing special or flashy from this 3rd round pick, but saved us from having to pick anyone up in free agency.

    4th rounder- RG Matthew Marcinhes -
    Kind of took a chance on this guy but he has 87 strength 79 PBK, and 84 RBK so he'd be a nice project that could pan out given the time. He probably won't see the field much, but could be used in the future.

    4th rounder- CB Brandon Thomas
    We liked Thomas because he was tall (6'2) and fast (93). His coverage skills aren' too bad either starting out. 82 MCV and 78 ZCV. He also has 72 catching so he should be able to bring down some interceptions as well. He's going to be our 5th CB but he is staying on the team for now.

    5th rounder- LOLB Cody Cox
    Not a bad pick here. Terrible coverage skills but 85 block shedding, 86 agility, and 92 hit power will jump out at you. Solid player that probably won't see the field too much, but we're hoping he can lay some big hits on guys in the Special Teams department.


    Rest of our picks were spent on guys that didn't make the team.

    Panthers Draft

    1st Round: DE Marvin Walker (82 OVR)
    89 SPD, 74 STR, 86 ACC, 81 BSH, 79 PMV, 82 PUR
    Walker is a super athletic pure pass rushing DE which our defense was sorely lacking. While we have Charles Johnson who does a great job against the run and getting to the qb, we didn't really have anyone that dynamic coming off the edge. Walker will be our 3rd DE and see plenty of action in nickel and dime formations, he could be a big contributor as a rookie.

    Traded 2nd and 3rd Round picks for Rolando McClain (85 OVR)
    The Panthers needed an upgrade at MLB badly and instead of getting into a bidding war for a player like AJ Hawk we decided to take matters in our own hands and trade for McClain who the Raiders had on the block

    4th Round: WR Craig Ogletree (74 OVR)
    90 SPD, 89 ACC, 77 CTH, 70 CIT, 80 SPC, 94 JMP
    Ogletree ended up being the pick here as we wanted to a young WR to develop. Ogletree has decent hands and jumping ability. He needs to refine his route running and get better catching the ball in traffic but with enough reps he could be a contributer by the end of the season.

    The other drafted players did not make the team.

    The Broncos entered the 2015 NFL Draft holding the 4th overall pick as well as 3 second round picks. The goal was to grab one of three superstars on the offensive side of the ball, QB Jordan Parks, HB Xavier Waters or QB Pharaoh Phillips. Denver's front office staff had inside information that Parks was going first and the Dolphins, who held the third pick, had no interest in Phillips and instead coveted either Waters or MLB Brandon Zuzek. That gave Denver false hope that Phillips would fall to them at 4. (about 90 real world minutes before the draft, RRAHx2 pm'd me and offered the #2 pick for my #4 and a 2nd/3rd etc....I turned him down, thinking he would take Waters and Phillips would fall to 4..whoops)

    1st -- MLB Brandon Zuzek
    An all around stud. Will be All-Pro caliber for 10+ years.
    ZuZKE.PNG


    2a -- DE Jamel McClain
    Big hoss the Broncos needed to stabilize the defensive line following the retirement of Cory Redding. Allows the team to move back to a true 3-4. (he is actually a 82 overall, not sure why the picture says 66)

    2b -- CUT

    2c -- QB Will Meyers
    Solid prospect, big arm that could develop into a starter.
    WMYERS.PNG

    3 -- CUT

    4 -- OLB Tyrell Stephens
    One of the best 3-4 pass rushers in the draft, honestly almost missed him because my wife was talking to me.
    tstephens.PNG

    5 -- TRADED

    6 -- FB Matu'u Tuiloma
    Power runner who can be used in short yardage. Needs to develop blocking.

    7 -- CB Landrum
    Will be cut soon.

    The Dolphins went into the draft holding the 3rd overall pick and were looking for Brandon Zuzek or Xavier Waters in a best case scenario. Miami was expecting to get the All Star MLB Zuzek since Waters seemed to be the next best RB out of a draft class since Adrian Peterson himself - but they would quickly found out after the second pick that they would be getting a face lift on offense.

    1sta - Xavier Waters HB 83 OVR 6'0 190 lbs
    Waters is a flat out burner who could become a top 5 back within a year or two. He has 97 speed and 95 acceleration so his ability to hit the hole and go all the way is a danger every time he touches the ball. The only place he is lacking some serious ability would be in Stamina and Trucking which could be easily bumped up and improved on after a season. He also has a development rating of Super Star so hopefully we can get another season under his belt and see what he is truly capable of.

    1stb - Corion Stephens WR 77 OVR 6'4 218 lbs
    Stephens is the receiver that Miami needed. He is 6'4 and has some great potential - He also came in with a Super Star development rating but what really caught my eye was his 85 catching and 89 speed and acceleration for his 6'4 height. He had a hell of a week one grabbing 7 passes for 100+ yards and a touchdown so it seems like this was definitely worth the pick.

    2nd - Patrick Reseau TE 64 OVR 6'7 254 lbs
    Don't let Reseau's overall rating fool you; he has 85 speed/85 acceleration/85 agility/80 catching/81 spectacular catching. The only rating he has that isn't impressive would be his 20 awareness rating that is just murdering his overall rating. I firmly believe he is the best Tight End in the entire draft and some might say I picked him too high but the Dolphins needed upgrades on offense so it was well worth it to me.

    3rd - Ben Stifle LG 74 6'5 309 lbs
    Great guard prospect that has some good acceleration overall for his position. I'm hopeful to see him grow into his own some time throughout this season and into the next.

    4th - Rodney Smith WR 71 OVR 6'4 204 lbs
    Decent speed for his position and has some stellar route running for a rookie wide receiver. He is currently playing at the slot position and we are hopeful he can blossom into a decent weapon.

    5th - Zach Richmond QB 75 OVR 6'2 225 lbs
    Really below average back up quarter back whom may be able to win SOME games for us if we absolutely needed him to come in for an injured Tannehill but that's about it.

    6th - CB Cut.


    Overall grade: B+

    Five out of my seven picks in this draft are now starters and more than likely will stay that way. These players are game changers for the Phins offense and are definitely a great start to getting this franchise back on track. Getting two players with super star development definitely helps the grade here too.

    If his awareness wasn't completely trash, I am sure he would be atleast 80 OVR.. once I get this CAR offense down, I might be able to win some good games. but I figure hell even if I don't win a game, atleast he will be a fun QB to play with.

    New York Jets Draft Picks 2016
    [​IMG]

    The coaching staff tried everything they could to get to #1 OVR in this draft to snag QB Jordan Parks, the only player they really wanted, but they just couldn't get a deal done. With 11 draft picks (3 in the first round) and not a lot of roster spots the Jets went to their plan B and decided to trade some of the picks for useful players and draft backups that hopefully had a talent edge over the current ones.​
    Traded TE Tony Moeaki and 3rd round pick (80th pick overall) to the Giants for FS Antrel Rolle - Moeaki was a luxury as the team had a more athletic TE in DJ Williams waiting in the wings. The plan was to also draft A.Sacco in the draft but he went way earlier than the coaching staff expected, guess they should've scouted TEs a bit more heavily. Rolle is an aging vet but still has the skills to hold down the #3 safety spot.​
    Traded 3rd round pick (89th pick overall) to the Colts for WR TY Hilton - Eddrick Hightower is taking over for Santonio Holmes on the outside and couldn't be risked on special teams anymore, so the team made the move to get a cheap speedster to handle return duties.​
    1 (7) - DT Jesse Crenshaw (78 OVR) - [Traded #16 overall and #31 overall to the Titans for #7 overall] - 6'1" 334 lbs, 89 STR/85 PMV/86 BSH/84 PRC- The team couldn't get into the top 2 spots of the draft and only had 4 players with a 1st round grade, Parks, Waters, Phillips, and Crenshaw. The other 3 players went in the Top 3 so the coaching staff traded up to snag Crenshaw. DT wasn't an immediate need but Terrance Cody picked up a hefty FA contract 2 years ago and may be shown the door in the final year of his deal if Crenshaw comes on strong. That very well could be the case as Crenshaw is a beast. At the very least he will be a great backup as Kenrick Ellis is talented but after multiple years in the league he still has trouble digesting a playbook.

    1 (25) - HB Al Fancher (52 OVR) - 5'10" 188 lbs - 96 SPD/90 ACC/94 AGI/99 ELU/98 JKM - The Jets had a 2nd round grade on the explosive Fancher but didn't expect him to last till the middle of the 2nd round and he was the highest player left on the board so they pulled the trigger. It was a tough call but they had to let last years HB draft pick Brian Richardson go to fit Fancher on the roster. Fancher needs to work on his NFL conditioning and ball security but there is no doubt this kid is a weapon in the open field.

    2 (16) - WR Derrick Brasilford (66 OVR) - 5'11" 188 lbs - 95 SPD/98 ACC/81 CTH/89 RLS - WR wasn't a need but the coaching staff was looking for even slight depth upgrades and he fit the bill. Brasilford certainly has some holes in his game as he's not the most elusive or agile speed receiver and struggles to make catches over the middle but he was an upgrade over the teams old 6th WR Cedric Brooks. Brasilford has shown an ability to beat a guy off the press and will fill out the receiving depth chart and in a few seasons could even start.

    4 (16) - HB DJ Greenwood (52 OVR) - 5'8" 195 lbs - 96 SPD/96 ACC/86 ELU/94 CAR/90 SPM - The Jets were kind of surprised Greenwood was still available at this pick and ran the card up to the podium. Dion Lewis wasn't as happy as he was kicked to the curb just as fast. Greenwood has to work on his conditioning but will be part of a 3 headed attack at RB and can even teach the other 2 backs a thing or two about ball security.

    4 (25) - LT Matthew Graham (68 OVR) - 6'6" 328 lbs - 74 PBK/84 RBK/90 IBL/97 STR - Graham is very raw but has an elite physical toolset. His power is going to be more effective on the right side of the line in the pros and the Jets coaching staff wasted no time switching his position. Graham will take a bit of time to develop but the coaching staff has high hopes he could one day be the starting RT. Drafting him forced RT Austin Howard off the roster despite objections from some of the coaching staff.

    5 (16) - QB Kyle Mills - *CUT* - The board had gone almost completely dry and no one left on it would've made the team so the Jets starting taking a stab at UDFA types. Mills was the top rated QB of the group but showed terribly in rookie mini-camp and was cut.

    6 (16) - QB Mike Haverstein - *CUT* - Mike wasn't even an effective camp arm and got his pink slip real fast.

    7 (16) - TE S.Goode - *CUT* - The only thing the scouts knew about Goode was that he was solid at the point of attack for a TE. That proved to be his only strength and wasn't worth the roster spot.


    GRADE: C+

    We can't give an above average grade to this draft as the team failed to land Jordan Parks, but the Jets Plan B worked almost flawlessly. The only guy they didn't get that they were targeting was P Nico Midgett who they would've taken in the 3rd round if they still had their 3rd rounders. Losing him to their division rivals sucked, but DJ Greenwood is a great consolation prize. The team got 5 quality backup players, all of whom could one day start for the team. Getting TY Hilton and Antrel Rolle will also come in handy in case of injuries and fatigue.

    San Francisco 49ers Draft Recap

    The 49ers looked to fill open roster spots in their secondary as well as provide youth to an aging linebacking corp. On the offensive side of the ball, the team's primary concerns were to shore up the interior offensive line and find a playmaking receiver. While San Francisco was able to fill the majority of it goals for the draft, the inability to find a quality lineman may be a problem that lingers into the season.

    Round Pick Position Name College Height & Weight OVR Grade Depth Chart Notable Attributes
    1 12 CB Johnathan Jones Arizona 6'2", 203 lbs 79 A- CB #3, Nickel MCV 81, ZCV 78, PRC 84, AWR 80[/B]
    San Francisco go the man they wanted at #12. Johnathan is a smart player with solid athleticism and coverage skills. Though he will be the #3 corner on the depth chart, look for him to see the field often.
    2 12 CB Marc Morales Florida State 6'2", 219 lbs 71 B- CB #5, ST SPD 94, ACC 93, AGI 91, MCV 79, ZCV 77[/B]
    The 49ers again went CB in the second round and were pleased to find Marc still available. He will need time to learn the playbook, but is the most athletic corner on roster.
    2 32 QB Chase Weymann Texas 6'4", 236 lbs 66 C Back-up THP 93, SAC 79, MAC 81, DAC 72[/B]
    With rumors swirling of a Kaepernick trade, the 49ers drafted Weymann with the hopes that he could compete for the starting job. He has a strong arm and good short-to-medium accuracy, but lacks consistency.
    3 12 WR Deangelo Montgomery Louisville 5'10", 195 lbs 61 B WR #5, KR/PR ACC 91, AGI 90, RTE 89, ELU 89[/B]
    The 49ers liked Montgomery from the first time they saw him and were pleased to see him still available at the 12th pick of the third round. Smooth, quick, elusive, and polished. However, repetition will be key to his success.
    4 12 ROLB Kenny Salaam FAU 6'4", 252 lbs 65 B OLB #4 PMV 90, FMV 82, PUR 86, ACC 84[/B]
    With no interior offensive lineman on the board, the 49ers turned to adding depth to the linebackers. Kenny is raw and has never learned anything other than getting after the quarterback.
    5 12 LOLB Torrian Gemette Marshall 6'5", 250 lbs 63 D Cut SPD 82, ACC 80, AGI 89, FMV 78, PUR 80[/B]
    Continuing with the LB depth, the 49ers took a shot on Torrian. Though a good athlete, his lack of an outstanding skill cost him a spot during pre-season.
    6 12 MLB Dominique Nutall Army 6'1", 238 lbs 69 B- MLB #4, ST ACC 91, AGI 85, PRC 78, TAK 78[/B]
    The front office feels that they have a potential starter in Nutall. With the top three MLB on the roster over 30, Dominique will be groomed to succeed. He is a football player that finds his way to the ball.
    7 12 MLB Sterlin Smith California 6'3", 252 lbs 63 C Special Teams SPD 82, ACC 85, AGI 85, TAK 78, POW 82, BSH 76[/B]
    Without anyone left on their board, San Francisco took a flyer on a MLB from nearby Cal. With his surprising athleticism and nose for the ball, Smith made the 53 man roster. He should be a special teams standout.

    All in all, the 49ers were happy with the players drafted, though a bit disappointed with the OVR rating for some. Time will tell whether this draft will be considered a success in the Bay Area.

    Kansas City Chiefs 2016 Draft
    [​IMG]
    The Chiefs exited the 2015 season ignominiously, failing to make the playoffs for the first time this cycle. Coupled with their 10-6 record, the Chiefs didn't even have the benefit of a top draft pick. But with a renewed commitment to the draft process (aka actually using a spread sheet and better scouting than the haphazard normal way we did things) they were optimistic about their chances. The Chiefs explored moving up in the draft but ultimately decided against it.​
    1st Round, Pick 20: CB Tamarcus Finley
    Tamarcus Finley.JPG
    The Chiefs biggest position of need was CB going into the draft. The Chiefs made that need even greater by trading stalwart nickel CB Javier Arenas to the Titans for the first pick in the second round. Fortunately, the Chiefs hit a homerun with Finley. A CB with elite speed, great play recognition and solid coverage skills, Finley has already impressed the KC coaching staff and may crack the two deep. As it stands, he represents an excellent nickel back.​
    2nd Round, Pick 1: OT Cody Adcock
    Cody Adcock.JPG
    Having filled their most pressing need, the Chiefs were free to go best player available. The Chiefs had considered going OL with their first pick, but selected Finley. Adcock represented a great pick with solid RBK, IBL, STR, AGI and AWR for a rookie OT. The only thing keeping him from being an elite talent is his pass blocking. As a backup, Adcock can learn from one of the best in Branden Albert before hopefully stealing a starting gig.​
    2nd Round, Pick 20: DT Nick McGovern

    McGovern represented another value pick for the Chiefs. The DT from Iowa has great raw skills, including 95 STR. As the backup behind Dontari Poe, McGovern will always be fresh when he comes into the game, giving him the opportunity to work on his block shedding and power moves.
    3rd Round, Pick 20: CB Blaine Favors

    Favors became an instant hit with the KC staff. Despite coming in behind Finley, Favors jumped three other CBs in the system to steal the dime spot. With elite speed, jumping, and play recognition almost as good as Finley's, Favors and Finley look to be a great tandem down the line. (Really wish we had more time in the cycle. These two could be a ridiculous pair of corners down the line).
    4th Round, Pick 20: P Joel Bellow

    Bellow was a need pick, as the Chiefs had decided to gain some cap space by letting their veteran punter go. A solid pick, hopefully Bellow is swiftly forgotten from lack of work.
    5th Round, Pick 20: WR Kenny Timm

    Head Coach Baron has always been an innovator in Madden and it's no surprise that he struck gold with another patented, Kansas City-exclusive decision to raid the lower ranks of the WR draft class. Timm is a physical freak: 6'5'', 211 lbs 99 SPD, 98 AGI, 81 STR, 86 ELU, 97 JMP, 80 RLS; Timm also has exceptionally soft hands with 86 CTH, 70 CIT, and 85 SPC. Really, the only thing keeping Timm from being a Calvin Johnson is his shit awareness and his route running. With Dwayne Bowe's injury in the season opener, Timm will start. That faith was well-deserved as he opened with 6 catches for 107 yards.
    6th Round, Pick 20: OT Khari Wallace

    Wallace is a developmental prospect at OL but has great size and stats. He and Adcock should spell the rest of the Chiefs O-line to keep everyone fresh.
    Overview: The Madison-V.J. Smith-Paul Andrews draft may have had the better stars, but this draft has a ton of depth and some elite talent for the Chiefs. Finley and Favors are two solid corners, Adcock is a great backup and Timm may be the steal of the entire draft.
    Grade: Fuck modesty, this gets an A.

    Tampa Bay Bucaneers
    3rd Round: DT - Ibraheim Dawkins 6'4" 303 USC
    The Bucs needed more muscle in the interior coming off the bench. Dawkins 90 STR, 80 PMV, 87 ACC, will be a nice complement to McCoy & Brockers.​
    4th Round: ROLB - Jarvis Jefferson 6'1" 234 Vanderbilt
    Jefferson's role will be depth playing behind L. David, Jarvis has a nice coverage skill set with 81 SPD, 83 TAK, 83 HPW, 79 ZCV, 70 PRC.​
    (No 1st or 2nd round picks, picks 5-7 did not make the cut.)
    OFFSEASON SCORE: A
    DRAFT SCORE: C

    Atlanta Falcons drafted players that made the roster:

    1st rounder- LB Justin Wallace (80) 6'2 241
    88 TKL, 87 HPW, 86 SPD, 87 PRC, 84 PUR.
    We had Wallace as a first round grade right behind Brandon Zuzek as a MLB. We were elated to see that he dropped to us at 26. He lacks top ACC at 76 but the rest of his attributes fit right in line for what you would want out of his position. Falcons finally address their MLB position with confidence.

    3rd rounder- OLB Tyren Hill- (76) 6'1 236
    We liked Tyren for his coverage abilities as an OLB. He has 85 SPD, 84 PRC, 71 ZCV. He was a definite target in the 3rd round and was happy to see him still around.

    5th rounder- TE Simuel Gresham (59) 6'3 239
    This was a total blind pick as Gresham was not scouted. He came in with some decent tools as a TE with 84 SPD 82 ACC 74 CTH and 72 RBK

    6th rounder- WR Maurice Leopard(69) 6'0 220
    After hearing about Baron's success story with Keller's advice on trying to take a smaller school guy that was unable to be scouted, I decided to take my luck on one as well. Leopard was a very good surprise. His 98 SPD 87 CTH 81 RTE should be able to fit nicely as trade bait or a 4th/5th WR as Atlanta has some great depth at the position.



    Overall, We were able to get an instant starter in Justin Wallace that we feel could be a true 100 tackle guy in the first to sure up a position that needed upgrading. Hill at OLB gives us nice depth and feel he could work well in rotation and in ST. TE Gresham will be a nice RBK option for us that can line up in big sets and surprise you with his play making abilities on PA. Leopard is a bit of a wild card as he has tremendous physical abilities but probably will not get the snaps to prove his worth without any injuries.

    Overall Grade: B-

    Can't seem to get on the connected careers website, so I'll add the pictures in later.

    With limited firepower in this years draft (trading picks to move up last year and used picks to acquire OLB Zach Brown from TEN), I knew I had 3 holes to fill. I needed a run blocking TE, a return man, and another back. After trading Antrel Rolle away for Tony Moeaki and a pick right before the draft, I gave myself a ton of flexibility moving forward, while filling one of my holes. After grabbing the HB in the 1st, I used my remaining picks to move up into the 2nd round to grab my retun man.

    1(17): HB Deshaun Whitmore, 83 overall
    Whitmore was the 3rd rated back on my board, with the 2nd rated back going one pick ahead of me at 16. While I do like Whitmore, he doesn't do anything all that well. He has decent speed (90), decent truck (74) an good elusiveness (89), but he doesn't bring any specific strengths to the table. It'll be interesting to see how he actually plays, as I have a 78 overall back playing behind Wilson already. The one thing I do like about Whitmore is his ball security (97 car).

    2(30) WR Jeremy Miller, 73 overall
    With my availability for the draft running out, I scrambled to trade up with the Patriots and get one pick in before I left. I used it on a returner, Jeremy Miller. Miller's WR ratings aren't particularly great (69 RTE, 71 CIT), but he has 97 speed and 95 return. With essentially no good returners on my roster, I knew I needed some to find that dynamic somewhere.

    I had 3 2nd round picks and was looking at Whitmore in the 2nd.

    Yeah, you just can't worry about projections. Two years in a row, I traded back because I thought my late projected guy would still be there in the 1st. Both years I was burned for doing so.

    I thought about waiting, but I didn't have a 2nd aat the time so I just pulled the trigger.
