Introduce your draft picks...
RD 1 - 32 Steven Morris CB A 6'2'' 205 pound corner with good cover skills, he will be inserted into the Dime position. He could see some time at one of the safety positions and Coach Knight is as high on him as he was Tyjuan Grant. RD 2 (ATL) - 38 Spencer Hargrett QB Coach Knight scouted the prospects before the draft to put out his publication on the sleepers, but what he found was arguably the best QB in this years draft. He seems the heir apparent after this year to Dozier, as his contract will be up and Houston looks to part ways with him--at least that is what is going through the rumor wire. RD 2 (NYG) - 52 Ameriol Watts ROLB Getting into the second round and further we start to see the overalls disappear real quickly and this is where the GMs make their money. How well did they evaluate talent in the short amount of time they have. Well Watts found himself going to the Texans who are in need of a ROLB after dealing Mario Williams last year to the Giants. He comes in with good block shed, tackle and hit power; his acceleration needs to improve but he might overtake the starting role by midseason. RD 2 - 64 De'Vaghn Moore SS The Texans are/were in dire need of a safety and this class didn't prove worthy after the first two were off the board by the 5th pick. Houston did get a project with some upside, this guy can bring the hit power (97) and he is a pretty solid tackler (84). Can he learn an NFL zone and cover man-to-man well enough to get onto the field? RD 3 - 96 Ivan Dupriest DT Sedrick Ellis should be retiring any moment now and even though Dupriest is 17 points rated lower (64) then Coles (81), he should challenge and see some snaps at the position. He has a pretty quick first step and can shed a block better then Coles, but lacks in the power and finesse move department. Another project in the works. RD 4 (NYG) - 116 Braylon Wright K Wright has already met with the coaching staff and management, he will be paid some compensation and then will be cut shortly afterwards. He still wonders how he was picked in this slot and only the internet knows why. RD 4 - 128 Kenneth Fields FB Fields will not be invited to camp when the team gets together to prepare for the 2017 season and defend their back-to-back title defense. RD 5 - 160 T.J. Snotherly C RD 6 - 192 Tommy Ulm C Tarleton State These next two picks really intrigue the Texans' coaching staff, Snotherly and Ulm come in with better blocking attributes then 9 year vet Cody Wallace despite being 10 and 5 points overall rated. They both won't overtake former 2nd round draft pick Antonio Johnson for the starting job at center, at least not any time soon. RD 7 - 224 Lary Calvin LOLB Mr. Irrelevant... He does have good speed and acceleration (90 & 87) and can knock a head off every once and a while (80 Hpow). He will ride the bench unless injuries accumulate and forced into action. He doesn't tackle well and struggles to get off of blocks.
I like that pick!! Mean Green
New Faces in the Big Apple Round 1 Pick #9 (TB) - MLB JJ Glashen The UTEP product was the reason the Giants traded away CB Dekendrick Seymour and their 1st round to move up. Glashen will start immediately in the Giants front 7, replacing the injury prone David Hawthorne who was not resigned this offseason. JJ's speed and tackling ability made him an easy pick for the Giants staff. Round 1 Pick #10 (Pitt) - CB Falo Watson Falo Watson was another easy choice for the Giants, one of their must gets on their draft day big board. With back to back first round picks in the top 10, the combination of Glashen and Watson was their desired route. Falo is an extremely fast CB with very good coverage skills. He will see plenty of playing time in multiple DB sets. Round 2 Pick #41 (TB) - QB Ben Neil Clemson QB Ben Neil being taken 41st overall is just another sign that Shane "Bust" Boals is on his way OUT of New York. After signing QB Anthony Anderson in Free Agency, the GMen picked up some reassurance in Neil. Ben has excellent power and solid accuracy under center. However, his most intriguing quality seen by the Giants is his pocket presence. One of the most aware QBs coming out of college, Neil will make a great replacement for Anderson. Besides, what is better than having 2 quarterbacks kick your teams worst nightmare to the curb? Round 3 Pick #84 - HB Lache Williams Welcome speed. Towson HB Lache Williams is a very fast running back and former Maryland transfer. The Giants did not resign HBs Ahmad Bradshaw nor Daniel Thomas and wanted another back to come in and continue a consistent 3-back rotation. Williams is that guy. His speed and acceleration will excite Big Blue Nation and he will be a huge threat in the passing game out of the backfield. Round 5 Pick #148 - CB DeMarcus Willis CB DeMarcus Willis was the last of the Giants draft picks to be given a contract and just another prospect that does not come from a major college football D1 program. The Giants have a knack for finding talent outside of the big names in college football (Corey Mays - Citadel, Gerron Jenkins - Alcorn St., Chytee Whavers - Florida, Jordan Shipley - Texas) and Willis has promise to be another solid football player. Willis is another very fast CB and has decent coverage skills. What makes him a good CB prospect is his ability to find the football and get to it. His jump height is AMAZING. He is also not made of glass like other NFL Cornerbacks (Mike Jenkins anyone?)
Eagles Draft Class 1st Round(25th) Leighton Cooksey DTThe Eagles wanted to continue building their defensive line, and Cooksey was the DT they wanted to pair with Julius Washington. His speed(94 ACC), power(90 STR), and tackling(88 TAK) will help sure up the middle of the defensive line. 2nd Round(46th) Arron Douglas DEThe Eagles were hoping he would would fall to their 2nd round pick, they love his potential playing on the opposite side of last years rookie pick, Kenerious Butler. Douglas is another player with speed(85 ACC), power(88 STR), and tackling(88 TAK) that will help sure up our frontline. 2nd Round (57th) Darnell Nixon LTNixon comes to the Eagles as a left tackle that is a good pass and run blocker(Both at 85). What the Eagles liked most was his IQ as a rookie(80 awareness). He can come in and start at LT and continue to progress. 4th round(110th) Tevyn Dyer CBThe Eagles continued with the defensive minded draft, by drafting Dyer in the 4th round. He is a solid CB with good speed(96 ACC), man coverage(89), zone coverage(82) and has good hands(75 CTH). His size at 6'2 and jumping(99), give the Eagles an athletic CB out of the Nickel. Along with last years picks CB Montrell Mack and FS Ciante Gilbert, the Eagles have solidify their secondary. 4th round(115th) Lyndell Riddick WRThe Eagles other offensive pick was used to help give Matt Ryan another weapon on offense in shotgun situations. At 6'3, Riddick has good speed(91 SPD, 94 ACC), IQ(80 AWR), can catch(80), and can break tackles and get away from defenders(81 TRK, 92 SA, 85 JKM). He is expected to be the 4th starter as well help in the return game.
RD 1 - Pick 16 - LOLB Tavaris Hopkins Tavaris will fill a huge hole for us at LOLB very nicely. He has great quickness and block shedding abilities that will compliment ROLB Crawford very well. These two together will make a great tandem in the 3-4 and quiet possible polish off one of the best linebacking cores in HK. RD 1 - Pick 19 - WR Evan Boyd Evan is a great route runner that will compliment the deep threat of Adrid Butler very well. He'll be our #2 from day one, giving the Chargers a 1-2 punch at WR they've been missing for a very long time. RD 2 - Pick 48 - RE Stan Jurado
Stan is a perfect fit for our 3-4 scheme. While his original position is RE, he'll probably be moved over to the left side to compliment RE Dante Spencer. This addition coupled with our already strong LB core makes our front seven very dangerous. RD 3 - Pick 66 - CB B.J. Hunt Hunt will add great depth at corner position. Hes slotted to be our nickle / dime corner and will definitely see some action on kick / punt coverage. RD 3 - Pick 80 - HB Dric Richmond What attracted San Diego to Dric was his speed. After releasing both Mathews and Foster this offseason and essentially emptying out HB core, finding depth in the draft was a must. A great value pick in round 3, Dric looks to be a great backup for the speedy Chris Johnson. Being able to plug Dric in and not lose a step in the speed department will be a huge plus. His 83 CTH rating is also very attractive option in the pass happy San Diego offense. RD 3 - Pick 93 - LG Diamond Douglas After losing some aging veteran depth on the o-line this offseason Douglas is a great addition late in the 3rd round. He has great size and strength and is a great compliment to the Chargers two young stud starting guards. RD 4 - Pick 112 - QB Luke Papagianopoulos After releasing QB Tim Tebow this past offseason, the Chargers were looking to add a pure pocket passer to backup QB Hayden Boone. Drafting Papagianopoulos in the 4th round gives them the depth they were looking for. RD 6 - Pick 176 - Mark Richards A pure depth addition here. Drafted and signed as our third MLB with the hopes he does nothing more then play special teams. RD 7 - Pick 208 - WR DeMarcus Gist DeMarcus was a great value pick for us in round 7. He has great speed and is a great return man. Hes primed and ready to come in and be a great special teams player for us. Hes currently also slated to be our KR / PR.
ROUND 1, 1ST PICK Cameron Hayes, FS Ball-hawk and heavy-hitter out of that hotbed of defensive backs, the University of Wisconsin. Hayes will look to fill the void left by the departure of Troy Polamalu. ROUND 3, 14TH PICK Evan Daich, QB Good passer and with a high football and tons of upside out of that hotbed of quarterbacks, the University of Wisconsin. With the quarterback carousel that the 49ers currently find themselves riding, he may get a shot early. ROUND 3, 19TH PICK Terrance Watkins, DT
A big run-stopper out of that hotbed of defensive lineman, the University of Alabama. Watkins will find his way into the defensive line rotation early, especially on rushing downs and distances.
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS2017 DRAFT Coach CA moves to the NFC West and has his first draft experience with the Seattle Seahawks
2ND ROUND LOLB ARTIE SIMMONS #50 AKRONSimmons will come in and start at the LOLB position. Glad we got him as he was on our board. Our team didn't have many needs but the LB position was one that had to be shored up. Simmons has good speed, tackling and moves to get into the backfield and blow shit. RE LOGAN ANGUIANO #94 AUBURNAnguiano will come in and provide depth at the end position and might even have the chance to start. Besides LB, this was our biggest need to fill in for depth. 3RD ROUND ROLB ELISHA BOOKER #50 UTEPBooker was traded to us in a deal with the Carolina Panthers that worked out great for the both of us. Booker will start opposite from Simmons and replace an aging James Anderson. A very young group of linebackers are now in Seattle with Simmons, Booker and Jaxon Houston. 4TH ROUND P KALEN PORTER #3 AIR FORCEPorter replace our lowly rated punter and has some very good attributes. We fired our other punter and Kalen will be booting balls for the Seahawks, hopefully not too much though.

2017 Carolina Panthers Rookie Class HB Lache HallHall immediately will come in and be the starting HB for the Carolina Panthers in 2017. Hall replaces the legendary Adrian Peterson after a disastrous Super Bowl. WR Keeylon BoltonKeeylon will be another significant piece to the Carolina offense. Bolton will be the starting slot WR in an offense that runs a lot of three wide formations. TE De'Arius JewettIn a draft day move, the Panthers traded their third Rd pick to acquire this beastly TE. At 6'7 and 255 pounds, Jewett will be one of Cam Newton's favorite targets. RT Jase RileyJase is one big dude from the North. He won't have much impact in his rookie year, but look out for his second season!
TERRY GASHEN - CB IOWA Will start at nickel UPDATE THIS MAN HAD 2 picks in his first NFL action uh oh
