Jacksonville Jaguars (2013 - Pres) 1. Jacksonville Jaguars –Trevor Lawrence /QB/ Clemson

With the first pick in the draft the Jags secure the future with Trevor Lawrence. He will be the face of the franchise for the next 15 years and has all the potential to be a consistent top 5 quarterback in the NFL.


New York Jets (2019 - Pres)  2. New York Jets – Zach Wilson /QB/ BYU

The Jets should move on from Sam Darnold and collect picks to help build the rest of the roster. Taking Wilson with the 2nd pick allows them to bring in a young gam changing quarterback who can grow with all the talent they should surround him with. Not to mention Wilson might have the highest ceiling of all quarterbacks in this draft.


Miami Dolphins (2018 - Pres) 3. Miami Dolphins – Penei Sewell /OT/ Oregon

Tua needs protection if he is ever going to have a chance to develop into what everyone thought he was last year. With the selection of Sewell Tua’s bind side is secured for the foreseeable future, you can move Austin Jackson to right tackle where he will have a chance to flourish. Allowing you to have one of the best young tackle tandems in the league.


Atlanta Falcons (2003 - Pres) 4. Atlanta Falcons – Rashawn Slater /OT/ Northwestern

The Falcons decide to stay with Ryan for another year. Slater comes in day 1 and can play either left tackle with Matthews kicking inside or left guard keeping Mathews at tackle. Either way Atlanta’s offensive line becomes much better, and Matt Ryan should be able to stand in the pocket all day dissect defences.


Cincinnati Bengals (2004 - Pres) 5. Cincinnati Bengals – Ja’Marr Chase /WR/ LSU

A LSU reunion in Cincinnati, Burrow gets his #1 target from 2019 back when they both played at LSU. With Chase opting out this past season he is still the clear #1 receiver in the draft, him and Burrow should have no trouble getting re-acclimated and finding success similar to what they did in college.


Philadelphia Eagles (1996 - Pres) 6. Philadelphia Eagles – Justin Fields /QB/ Ohio St.

A new era in Philly Wentz is gone and Hurts does not have the tools to be a elite level quarterback in the NFL. The rebuild starts now the Eagles take Justin Fields who has all the tools to become a top10 quarterback at the next level.


Detroit Lions (2017 - Pres) 7. Detroit Lions – Jaylen Waddle /WR/ Alabama

the Lions add a much needed playmaker in Waddle who is the most electric player in this years draft. Do not be fooled by Smiths production at the end of the year if you watch Alabama’s early games when Waddle was healthy its clear he was the #1 option in that offence. Waddle also offers you value in the return game being able to break it off for 6 at any given time.


Carolina Panthers (2012 - Pres) 8. Carolina Panthers – Trey Lance /QB/ North Dakota St.

The Panthers get the future of the franchise with Trey Lance a tall strong mobile quarterback with a good arm. Lance is a perfect modern day quarterback who can hurt you with his arm or legs as shown by running for over 140 yards in the only game he played this past year. The panthers can take there time with Lance and ease him into the game considering they still have Bridgewater for the next year, although I think it will be tough to keep Lance off the field.


Denver Broncos (1997 - Pres) 9. Denver Broncos – Patrick Surtain II /CB/ Alabama

The Broncos come away with the #1 corner in this years draft who has been groomed form birth to play the corner position. Surtain II dad played 11 years in the NFL and its clear he has shown his son a few things. Surtain II should come in and be a starting corner game 1 for the Broncos.


Dallas Cowboys (1964 - Pres) 10. Dallas Cowboys – Caleb Farley /CB/ Virginia Tech

The Cowboys get to fill a major need on there team without reaching, Farley offers so much upside at 6’2″ and 197 pounds he can match up with any receiver. Farley will a huge impact for the cowboys defence and should make a instant improvement.


New York Giants (2000 - Pres) 11. New York Giants – DeVonta Smith /WR/ Alabama

With Smith falling out of the top 10 the Giants cant help themselves and get arguably the best receiver in this years draft. Daniel Jones needs weapons, with the addition of Smith he stretches the field. Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram should have a easier time getting open underneath and in  the middle of the field.


San Francisco 49ers (2009 - Pres) 12. San Francisco 49ers – Kyle Pitts /TE/ Florida

Adding Kyle Pitts to this offence should be illegal. San Fran gets a dynamic player who can be used in similar ways to Travis kelce moving him out wide or keeping him on the line. The niners offence with Kittle and Pitts will prove to be the biggest miss-match for defences, no one will can cover Kittle now imagine trying to stop 2 of those guys in Shanahan’s offence.


Los Angeles Chargers (2020 - Pres) 13. Los Angeles Chargers – Christian Darrisaw /OT/ Virginia Tech

The Chargers get some much needed help along the O-line Darrisaw can play left tackle solidifying the blind side for Herbert. In back to back drafts the Chargers come away with two of the most important position’s creating stability and hope for the future of the organization.


 Minnesota Vikings (2013 - Pres) 14. Minnesota Vikings – Gregory Rousseau /EDGE/ Miami

Rousseau is on of the most talented raw players to come out in recent memory only playing 1 season as a edge rusher, in that season he led the country with 15.5 sacks while at Miami. Mike Zimmer’s coaching staff has been known to turn raw pass rushers into productive players in the league, so taking Rousseau with the 14th pick seems like the most ideal fit for both player and team.


New England Patriots (2000 - Pres) 15. New England Patriots – Micah Parsons /LB/ Penn St.

Parsons was a consensus top 10 pick to start the season he is a freak athlete that can be used all over the field. Bill will be running the pick up himself if Parsons is still there, his ability to do multiple things as a line backer is what Bill covets from that position.


Arizona Cardinals (2005 - Pres) 16. Arizona Cardinals – Jaycee Horn /CB/ South Carolina

Patrick Peterson is leaving in free agency and the Cardinals draft his replacement with Horn. He is a long, tall, and fast corner showing all the natural  ability to come in and play press or bump and run and be successful. The Cardinals get there CB-1 to continue building this teams young talented secondary.


Las Vegas Raiders (2020 - Pres) 17. Las Vegas Raiders – Kwity Paye /EDGE/ Michigan

Another big school guy for Mayock, Paye should bring some much needed help to the Raiders pass rush.


Miami Dolphins (2018 - Pres) 18. Miami Dolphins – Zaven Collins /LB/ Tulsa 

Flores gets his linebacker that can do it all similar to Parsons Collins can do multiple things from the linebacker spot. Collins versatility allows him to line up as a pass rusher along the edge on 3rd down as well s playing the traditional linebacker roll.


Washington Football Team (2020 - Pres) 19. Washington Football Team – Samuel Cosmi /OT/ Texas

Whoever is under centre week 1 they will be thankful to have Cosmi playing left tackle blocking for them. Cosmi will come in from day 1 and be the left tackle for Washington being a major upgrade from what they had there last season. Cosmi still has room to grow into his 6’7″ frame and should continue to grow and get better at the next level. Starting 34of 35 games Cosmi is a great investment for the future of this team.


Chicago Bears (1974 - Pres) 20. Chicago Bears – Alex Leatherwood /OT/ Alabama

The Bears need help wherever they can get it along the offensive line, and thats exactly what they get in Leatherwood at 6’5″ 312 pounds Leatherwood can play either guard or tackle for you. Playing both left tackle and right guard during his time at Alabama Leatherwood might project better at guard for the NFL, but I would still give him a fair shot at tackle considering he played the lsat two seasons starting at left tackle in the SEC.


Indianapolis Colts (2002 - Pres) 21. Indianapolis Colts – Liam Eichenberg /OT/ Notre Dame

Now that the Colts have Wentz under centre it would be a smart investment to protect him if you don’t want to see a repeat of what happened last year in Philadelphia. Along with the retirement of Castonzo, Eichenberg should fill that role nicely starting the last 3 seasons at Notre Dame playing left tackle.


Tennessee Titans (1999 - Pres) 22. Tennessee Titans – Azeez Ojulari /EDGE/ Georgia

The Titans pass rush needs help the Clowney experiment did not work and they find themselves again looking for a 3-4 pass rusher. Ojulari fits there scheme and brings athleticism that no none else offers at this position on the Titans. Ojulari’s burst, bend and flexibility are all great tools he shows he will be able to add to his game and should get even better in the NFL.


New York Jets (2019 - Pres)  23. New York Jets – Travis Etienne /RB/ Clemson

Etienne is arguably one of the most dangerous prospects in this years draft. The jets need weapons all over the field and Etienne Fills the running back hole along with being a home run hitter he can take it the distance at any given time during the game all you need to do is put the ball in his hands.


Pittsburgh Steelers (2002 - Pres) 24. Pittsburgh Steelers – Alijah Vera-Tucker /IOL/ USC

With the retirement of Pouncey as well as Villanueva most likely leaving in free agency the Steelers would be grateful to have someone like Vera-Tucker on the team. Vera-Tucker played tackle and guard during his time at USC. Although his body suggest a move to guard at the NFL he played very well last season at left tackle and I would like to see him start there and prove he cant do it before being moved to guard. Worst case scenario Vera-Tucker can be a pro bowl guard in the NFL best case he turns into the starting left tackle its a no lose situation fo a team that needs help at both positions.


Jacksonville Jaguars (2013 - Pres) 25. Jacksonville Jaguars – Kadarius Toney /WR/ Florida

Urban Meyer was known for having some of the fastest most dynamic teams in college football I would assume he does something similar on the NFL. With his first selection outside of Lawrence he wastes no time in getting one of the the best run after the catch athletes in the draft. In addition to what Toney brings on offence he should become the starting punt and kick returner as well.


Cleveland Browns (2015 - Pres) 26. Cleveland Browns – Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah /LB/ Notre Dame

Owusu-Koramoah is hybrid of linebacker and safety he is at his best when covering tight ends and playing the alley in big nickel. He will be able to play the will in traditional fronts and move around almost being a positionless player in passing situations. He will be at his best if used similar to a player like Jeremy Chin was this past season.


Baltimore Ravens (1999 - Pres)  27. Baltimore Ravens – Rashod Bateman /WR/ Minnesota

Lamar gets his prayers answered with one of the top route runners in this years draft, Bateman can play opposite of Hollywood Brown and be the true X this offence has been searching for. Bateman has a great catch radius with strong hands and he is a willing blocker all things that make him fit what the Ravens are looking for.


New Orleans Saints (2017 - Pres) 28. New Orleans Saints – Jalen Phillips /EDGE/ Miami

Underrated and not talked about enough Jalen Phillips is a premiere edge rusher that can do everything for you. Jalen is 6’5″ and 258 pounds he has size, speed, power and position versatility, he plays the run just as good as he rushes the passer. New Orleans finally gets there long awaited edge rusher.


Green Bay Packers (1980 - Pres) 29. Green Bay Packers – Terrace Marshall Jr. /WR/ LSU

If Rodgers isn’t going anywhere it might be time for the Packers to cave and finally draft a receiver in the first round. Marshall Jr. fits what the Packers tend to go after in receivers being 6’3″ 200 pounds he has a slim build but has produced every season while at LSU even after Burrow left he still had double digit touchdowns and averaged more than 100 yards receiving per game. Opposite of Davante Adams he should be able to feast and great production his rookie year.


Buffalo Bills (1974 - Pres) 30. Buffalo Bills – Najee Harris /RB/ Alabama

A great season for the Bills, but all year the offence was missing a run game. With the culture and weather in Buffalo Harris is a tremendous fit fro the Bills he can be a true bell cow carrying the ball 25-30 times a game, not to mention what he can do in the pass game staying in to block or receiving Harris can help you in every way possible. With Harris the Bills can have a solid run game and make Josh Allen better than he already is.


 

Kansas City Chiefs (1972 - Pres) 31. Kansas City Chiefs – Jalen Mayfield /OT/ Michigan

Its safe to say the Chiefs biggest problem this year was the offensive line, Mahomes is possibly the best quarterback to play the game Andy and the Chiefs know this and will get him the protection he deserves. Mayfield has a ton of potential he can play right or left tackle or kick him inside to guard where he should dominate.


Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2020 - Pres) 32. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Joseph Ossai /EDGE/ Texas 

With the possibility of Shaq Barrett not returning the Bucs get his replacement in Ossai who himself is a freak athlete can do what Barrett did for this pass rush. Ossai has a knack for creating turnovers and his motor never stops a high effort and impact player for a superbowl wining defence wont be fun for the rest of the league.

Shayne’s Top 5 Players To Watch At The Senior Bowl

Photo by:draftwire.usatoday.com/

Ian Book

photo by: sb nation.com

Background- Ian is a 22 year old, born in El Dorado Hills, California on March 30, 1998. Ian was a 3 star recruit coming out of high school and the 22nd ranked quarterback in his class. In his freshman season he redshirted not suiting up for any games. In his RS freshman season he managed to appear in 10 games, while only starting 1 game he picked up his first win and start on that day. IN his RS sophomore season he took over the starting job in the 4th week of the season against Wake Forest. Winning every game for the rest of the season, unfortunately losing in the CFP semifinals against Clemson. In his RS Junior season he started every game for the Irish going 11-2 with a bowl game victory. Ian also took home the team’s offensive player of the year award as well as breaking multiple school records. In his final RS senior season Ian led the Irish to a 10-2 record, failing to get by Alabama in the CFP semi finals. Ian was named a team captain and third team all ACC quarterback, along with finishing second all-time in Notre Dame quarterback career completions, yardage, and passing touchdowns. 

 

Strengths- Ian is an excellent athlete, showcasing his abilities consistently in his time at Notre Dame. Ian showed an uncanny ability to escape the pocket and extend plays, some of Notre Dame’s biggest plays came off Ian breaking the pocket and making magic happen. Quick and light feet go along with his tough and rugged running style, Ian picks up a lot of extra yards when he decides to scramble. He flashes greatness in the passing game with some wow throws, displaying touch and accuracy. Ian throws with a lot of velocity in short area’s and has shown to have pretty good touch when leading receivers on deep throws. 

 

Weaknesses- Ian suffers from inconsistency in the passing game. Some throws are great while others leave you scratching your head. His deep ball can flutter and hang up in the air on occasion which will lead to turnovers at the next level. Ian has a poor sense for pressure in the pocket along with a less than ideal mental clock. He can hold the ball for way too long creating negative plays opposed to just throwing it away and trying to live for another down. Ian’s size is another detriment to him coming in at 6’0” and 210 pounds he is below the ideal size for a starting quarterback in the NFL. Ian needs to improve his ability to make multiple reads. Currently he looks to his first option and if it’s not there he usually breaks the pocket and tries to create something off script. 

 

Player Comp- Trace McSorley 

 

Summary- Ian is a fun exciting player that can energize a team in short bursts at the next level. I believe he will end being a long term backup that can come in and win you multiple games and give your team a fighting chance. Some of his deficiencies can be improved upon at the next level such as his progressions and pocket awareness. Ian has a great ability to make something out of nothing in the passing game and his athleticism will allow coordinators to feature him in the run game as well. Ian should be picked somewhere on day 3 between the 5-6th rounds. I do believe a team might fall in love with his talent and raw abilities and tale him as early as the 4th round. In his career at Notre Dame Ian earned multiple awards and ended with 8948 passing yards 72 passing touchdowns to 20 interceptions, along with 1517 rushing yards, 17 rushing touchdowns.

 

Liam Eichenberg

photo by: uhnd.com

Background- Liam is a 23 year old, born in Cleveland Ohio on January 19th, 1998. Coming out of high school he was a 4 star recruit, and the #67th ranked player in the nation as well as the #6th ranked offensive tackle on ESPN 300 list. His freshman season he redshirted not seeing the field at all. His sophomore year he saw action in 5 games, not becoming a full time starter until his junior season where he started all 13 games, allowing just 3 sacks. In his senior season he again started every game allowing 0 sacks and only 9 quarterback hurries. In his graduate senior season he again started all 13 games and was named first team all ACC by the associated press for offensive tackle.

 

Strengths- Liam has very good intelligence to go along with a NFL ready body. At 6’6” and 302 pounds he will be able to help from day 1. He has good athleticism showing on multiple occasions he can get to the 2nd level to block linebackers. Liam has power in his hands once he gets them on you it’s rare someone can shed the block. His intelligence is on full display when picking up stunts and late blitzes with ease. Liam has shown a good anchor in pass blocking taking a step back and resetting. He also does a great job of turning defenders and creating running lanes. In combination with his light feet and ability to pull he will find a starting spot early in his career.  

 

Weaknesses- Liam’s biggest weakness comes from speed rushers, he can fall victim to fast bendy rushers that can take the corner faster than him. As a result he sometimes over sets trying to compensate and can be beaten back on the inside with crossover like moves. On occasion his hands can get outside the defenders chest, which could lead to some holding calls at the next level.  

 

Player Comp- Mike McGlinchey

 

Summary- Liam has a NFL ready body with good athleticism and light feet. Starting every game for 3 consecutive seasons at Notre Dame and earning first team all ACC in this past season. He will come in on day 1 and contribute to a team, i believe he will benefit from being selected by a run heavy team. Currently Liam is better at run blocking than pass protection, while his deficiencies in the pass game can be improved with good coaching. He would benefit from going to a team like San Francisco who gets their lineman on the move and reaching to the 2nd level where Liam excels. I can envision Liam going early in the 2nd round, while he has a couple of things to work on he has the right size and intelligence for the position. A good coach will turn him into a productive starter at the next level. 

 

 

Marvin Wilson

Background- Marvin is a 22 year old, born in Houston Texas on September 5, 1998. Coming out of high school he was a 5 star recruit and the #1 defensive tackle prospect, along with being the #1 recruit in Texas, and ranked the #4 overall player on ESPN’s top 300. Marvin found his way on the field in every season at Florida St. where he played as a true freshman. In his sophomore season he appeared in every game managing to start 5. In his junior season he had established himself as a full time starter and team captain, before suffering a season ending injury. He returned for his senior season and played in 6 games before suffering another injury. 

 

Strengths- Marvin has excellent explosiveness/ initial quickness when getting off the line. He shows quick aggressive hands when pass rushing, to go along with his burst. Shows a variety of moves when pass rushing from swims, rips, hump-moves, as well as stack and shedding defenders. Will sometimes use the long arm to create space and leverage defenders. Has very good instincts and awareness for the game, always has his eyes in the backfield. Marvin lined up all over the D-line from 0 technique through 5 technique showing his versatility. Does a great job of shooting gaps in the run game. Along with getting in front of reach blocks using his IQ and athletic ability.    

 

Weaknesses- Marvin doesn’t have an ideal body type for a NFL defensive tackle, he has very skinny legs for someone weighing 305 pounds. He carries all his weight in his top half. Thus leading to his problem with run defence, Marvin will get blown off the line if doubled teamed. He also has a lot of trouble anchoring and holding his ground in the run game. He can be a victim of playing too high. Marvin rarely gets under blockers and drives them back, his bull rush is almost nonexistent. In addition Marvin is only playing about 50% of the snaps in the games I viewed. Another thing he struggle’s with is a second move. If his first pass rush moves is stopped he doesn’t show the ability to counter and shed the block, oftentimes staying engaged with a blocker. Marvin has a history of injuries which is a huge red flag for NFL teams, players with a track record of getting hurt in college tend to continue that at the next level (ex. Sidney Jones, Jaylon Smith).

 

Player Comp- Grady Jarrett

 

Summary- Marvin has great potential to become a starter at the next level if he can get his body right and put on some weight in his lower half. He flashes a variety of pass rush moves as well as the ability to shoot gaps and be disruptive in the run/ pass game. Although his lack of power in his lower half will most likely keep him off the field on early downs/ running plays. His skills translate best to 4-3 defence where he can play 3 technique and focus primarily on rushing the passer. Currently with his lack of production, injury history and inability to stay on the field in obvious run downs I can see him being selected in the middle to bottom half of the 2nd round. Some teams will fall in love with his potential, if he can fix the issues he has with his lower half, and become more powerful he will have a long NFL career. Some of his issues can easily be fixed with good coaching such as leverage and countering/ second pass rush moves when engaged with a blocker. All the tools are there and it’s clear he has room to grow and can be better in the NFL than he was at Florida St. 

 

Amari Rodgers

Background- Amari is a 21 year old wide receiver born in Knoxville Tennessee on September 23rd, 1999. He was a 4 star recruit coming out of high school where he was recruited by schools such as; Clemson, Alabama, USC, Duke, Florida St, Tennessee and LSU. Amari was the 72nd overall ranked player coming out of high school according to ESPN’s top 300. Coming from great bloodlines Amaris father is Tee Martin the national champion quarterback from the university of Tennessee. While at Clemson Amari managed to play every season becoming a starter in his sophomore year. As well as receiver he was used in the return game, returning punts in all 4 years at Clemson. Unfortunately Amari suffered a torn ACl in the spring of 2019, he was back in action 166 after the injury suiting up for week 2 of the season, showing his resilience, determination and effort he put into his recovery.In his sophomore year (2018) Amari received all ACC academic and honour roll sections. In his junior year (2019) Amari received the Brandon Streeter award given to a Clemson student-athlete across all sports who overcomes injury to excel on the field. In his senior year at Clemson (2020) Amari was a semi-finalist for the Biletnikoff award, named first team all ACC by the associated press and PFF, voted as a permanent captain, and had career highs in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns. 

 

Strengths- Built or the next level, thick lower half coming in at 5’10” and 210 pounds. Amari excels when the ball is in his hands making people miss and showing superb contact balance and agility. Runs more like a half back than a receiver determined to get to the end zone, rarely going down on first contact. Additionally he has shown a good level of football IQ knowing when to settle into zones and become an available target for his quarterback. Amari is also well versed in returning punts showing good hands and an ability to get some positive yards. While he did not get many explosive plays returning punts he still averaged 7+ yards in every season at Clemson. A hard working intelligent player who can come in day 1 and contribute to a team. 

 

Weaknesses- Amari’s lack of height and elite speed will most likely limit him to the slot at the next level. He is not a true deep threat that can vertically challenge defenses, combined with  running a very simple route tree. In his time at Clemson most of his touches came from designed plays and quick routes such as slants, screens, drags and outs. His catching radius is limited and he can sometimes be a victim of double catching the football. Amari had an ACL tear in the spring of 2019, only missed 1 game and was back in 166 days. 

 

Player Comp- Deebo Samuel.

 

Summary- Amari should be picked somewhere in the 3rd round, being able to immediately contribute to a team as a punt returner and slot receiver. Although I can see a team falling in love with him and taking him at the bottom of the 2nd or top of the 3rd round. I believe he would fit best in a west coast system that utilizes athletes in space and gets the ball in their hands. Teams like San Francisco, Kansas City, New Orleans, L.A. Rams, Carolina and Arizona would all be a great fit for Amari and the talents he brings. He should have a decent NFL career and could end up being viewed as highly as players like Deebo Samuel and Curtis Samuel, if he lands in the right system. Where he ends up will have a big impact on his career, the right team will get the most out of him like Clemson did. Inversely some teams might find it hard to get a 5’10” guy with just ok speed on the field consistently. 

 

Carlos Boogie Basham Jr.

photo by: roanoke.com

Background- Carlos boogie Basham Jr. is a 23 year old born December 16, 1997 from Roanoke, Virginia. He was a 3 star recruit coming out of high school, once at Wake Forest he decided to redshirt his freshman year. His mom’s friend gave him the nickname boogie when she used to watch him as a child for the sole reason of, his love to boogie. The name stuck and that’s what he has gone by ever since. Boogie has had an extremely productive career at Wake Forest setting school and NCAA records. Such as 23 consecutive games with a tackle for loss, 2nd most sacks in a single season by a Wake Forest defender, and all ACC honours at defensive end. Through his career at Wake Forest he had 173 total tackles, 36.5 tackles for loss, 20.5 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, and 8 pass deflections.

 

Strengths- Boogie meets all the physical requirements coming in at 6’5” and 285 pounds an ideal body to play defensive end at the next level. He must have been born around water because his swim move is outstanding. While he offers a variety of pass rush moves the swim especially sticks out as his go to and most successful move. To go along with his quick and violent hands is his on field intelligence. Boogie always has his eyes in the backfield, does a great job of setting the edge, playing read options and keeping contain. He also showcased his versatility playing multiple positions along the defensive line. When lined up in the interior he feasted on guards and centres quickly beating them and taking advantage of the mismatch. Boogie rarely gets moved off his spot and shows good play strength when playing the run. He is a technician with an endless motor chasing plays 30 yards downfield. Never gives up and puts in the same amount of effort whether the games 0-0 or his team is down by 30. 

 

Weaknesses- Boogie does not have great power when rushing, rarely uses a bull rush move. He is not very flexible or bendy struggles trying to dip and get underneath offensive lineman. Has ok speed and quickness rarely wins with speed moves or getting around the corner. He won’t be able to beat NFL offensive lineman with his athletic ability alone, he is going to have to be someone who wins by effort and technique at the next level. These issues are compounded with his leverage problem, most of his moves come with him almost standing up which will be a problem at the next level. 

 

Player Comp- Brandon Graham

Summary-  Boogie can come in on day 1 and help your team. His best fit would be as a 4-3 defensive end where he can specialize on third down and be moved along the line to create mismatches with guards and centres. I have Boogie going somewhere early to mid 2nd round. I believe some teams will love the hustle, motor, effort whatever you want to call it. He gives u everything he has 100% of the time, there’s no quit in him. He should be able to fix some of his leverage issues with coaching, and if he can add some power to his game he will turn into a productive full time starter at the next level. If he puts it all together i can envision him having a career similar to Brandon Graham, stout against the run, sets the edge and can average 8-10 sacks. Boogie is an intelligent hard working player who has already shown he can develop pass rushing skills, there’s no reason to think he won’t continue to grow at the next level.

Shayne’s 2021 Mock Draft 2.0

Photo by:Matt Cashore/Associated Press

Round 1

 1. New York Jets= Trevor Lawrence – QB – Clemson 

The Jets get what they thought they would back in 2018, a true game changing quarterback to build the franchise around. 

2.  Jacksonville Jaguars= Justin Fields – QB – Ohio St.

Minshew mania has cooled off,  the fans in Jacksonville will be thrilled to get Fields. He will be able to take the offence to new levels that Minshew could not. 

3. Dallas Cowboys= Penei Sewell – OT – Oregon 

The Cowboys need to re-sign Dak, and when that happens the first priority should be keeping him protected. The Cowboys get exactly that with one of the best offensive tackles to come out in the last couple of years. 

4. New York Giants= Gregory Rousseau – EDGE – Miami 

The Giants go with the top pass rusher a year ago, before opting out Rousseau had 15.5 sacks in the 2019 season. He is still very raw and has the potential to get even better in the NFL.  

5. Washington= Trey Lance – QB – North Dakota St.

The Dwayne Haskins experiment has failed in Washington. Ron Rivera wants a new QB and he gets his  wish with a great prospect who has all the tools to turn into a top 10 QB. 

6. L.A. Chargers= Patrick Surtain II – CB – Alabama

Chris Harris and Casey Hayward both have expiring contracts in 2021. With Harris having an out after 2020 as well as Hayward only costing 2 million of dead cap if he is cut, saving 8 million dollars. Most likely the Chargers will only keep one if any so bringing in the top corner prospect in this year’s draft seems like a no brainer.   

7. Miami Dolphins= Micah Parsons – LB – Penn St.

Yes Tua needs weapons but there is no way Brian Flores passes up the top defensive player in this year’s draft. Parsons can do everything you need of him at linebacker and offer pass rush help. He should be an immediate impact player for this already dangerous defence. 

8. Cincinnati Bengals= Ja’Marr Chase – WR – LSU

Burrow has been very impressive so far in his rookie campaign, that being said he could still use more weapons. A.J green looks washed, Higgins seems to be emerging and Boyd makes a very good slot receiver. Adding Chase to that would give Burrow a very good trio of young receivers he can grow with. 

9. Carolina Panthers= Caleb Farley – CB – Virginia Tech 

Tall, fast, long, and physical everything Rhule wants out of his players Farley fits perfectly in Carolina’s defence. 

10. Atlanta Falcons= Kwity Paye – EDGE – Michigan 

The Falcons go back to the pass rushing well after multiple swings and misses on that position. I think this time is different selecting Paye they go with a big physical player opposed to the lean athletic rushers they have gone with in the past. 

11. Detroit Lions= Dylan Moses – LB – Alabama 

The Lions get a QB for the defence Moses is a tone setter who can contribute immediately and help a lacklustre Lions Defence.

12. Minnesota Vikings= Creed Humphrey – IOL – Oklahoma 

The Vikings upgrade the interior line with possibly the best guard prospect in this year’s draft. Making life easier for Dalvin Cook should scare opposing defences. 

13. New England Patriots= Zach Wilson – QB – BYU

The Patriots get a young electric quarterback who can offer them running ability as well as passing allowing Bill Belichick to really make a new offence around Wilson. 

14. Denver Broncos= Shaun Wade – CB – Ohio St.

The Broncos need corner help and Wade is the answer he can play outside as well as inside in the slot. He is an aggressive player who can help in the run game along with the passing game. 

15. San Francisco 49ers= Wyatt Davis – IOL – Ohio St.

The 49ers game is built off the run and getting arguably the best guard in the draft is a huge impact for their offence. 

16. Chicago Bears= Alex Leatherwood – OT – Alabama 

The Bears get a player who can contribute from day one to a struggling offensive line, Leatherwood has been playing tackle but might project better to guard in the NFL. Wherever the Bears choose to use him he should be a big help to them. 

17. Cleveland Browns= Joseph Ossai – EDGE – Texas 

The Browns go with Ossai who can play opposite of Myles Garrett, Oliver Vernon’s contract is up after this year and the Browns would  be wise to not re-sign the aging pass rusher. Who has had very limited production so after this season.  

18. Indianapolis Colts= Dillon Radunz – OT – North Dakota St.

The Colts are in the conversation to trade for quarterbacks like Darnold and Haskins if they get a new QB or go with last year’s draft pick Eason, the smart move would be to protect him. Radunz can come in and play left or right tackle and help the Colts strong O-line get even better. 

19. Philadelphia Eagles= Jaylen Waddle – WR – Alabama 

After Waddle’s ankle injury he might slip a little in the draft if this scenario happens you can bet the Eagles will be running the card up for him. Waddle is a game changer on offence and special teams.

20. Arizona Cardinals= Jaycee Horn – CB – South Carolina 

The Cardinals offence has been very good this year with Kyler taking another step, But the defence has been a sore spot for the Cardinals. Horn has been an emerging star this season; he has size and speed he can come in and learn from Peterson who has a very similar physical profile. 

21. Miami Dolphins= DeVonta Smith – WR – Alabama 

Tua gets one of his college weapons to come in and make the offence more dangerous. Smith has an amazing catch radius and never drops anything, between him and Parker there should be no incomplete passes when Tua is throwing the ball.  

22. Jacksonville Jaguars= Kyle Pitts – TE – Florida 

The Jags already got their new QB and now they get him a weapon that can grow with him. Pitts is the top TE in this year’s draft and can come in day 1 and be a top 10 TE in the NFL he has all the athletic ability in the world. 

23. L.A. Raiders= Azeez Ojulari – EDGE – Georgia 

The Raiders need pass rushing help Mike Mayock stays true to form by selecting another player form a big name school in Ojulari. Ojulari is a very raw player who has amazing hip bend and potential if he can live upto it he will be a great pass rusher at the next level. 

24. Tennessee Titans= Jay Tufele – IDL – USC

The Titans take one of the top DT in this year’s draft, Tufele and Simmons can both be versatile to move around and play end or tackle in the Titans 3-4 defence. The addition of Tufele should improve the Titans run defence and offer interior pass rushing.  

25. Tampa Bay Buccaneers= Jayson Oweh – EDGE – Penn St.

The Bucs add another pass rusher in Oweh who can add to the rotation of Barrett and Pierre-Paul. Pierre-Paul will also be in the last year of his contract, the addition of Oweh would allow the Bucs to move on from Pierre-Paul. 

26. New York Jets= Pat Freiermuth – TE – Penn St.

The Jets get Lawrence, his new best friend in Freiermuth, He is an all around TE who can help the Jets in the run game as well as the passing game.  

27. Baltimore Ravens= Paris Ford – S – Pittsburgh

The Ravens Defence is missing a centre fielder losing Earl Thomas there  has hurt them this season. Ford has the speed to play centre field song with the physicality to come down in the box and he can make an immediate impact in the secondary. 

28. Buffalo Bills= Samuel Cosmi – OT – Texas 

The Bills could use an upgrade on their offensive line specifically at tackle, Daryl Williams’ contract is over after this season and the Bills would be wise to get another young offensive lineman under cost controlled rookie contract.

29. Green Bay Packers= Rashod Bateman – WR – Minnesota 

Packers fans rejoice you finally get what you have been waiting for, a wide receiver. Bateman is possibly the best route runner in the draft and can be an amazing Z receiver opposite of Adams. 

30. Kansas City Chiefs= Trey Smith – IOL – Tennessee 

The Chiefs walk away from this draft with arguably the best Guard, who can come in and protect Mahomes for the next 10 years. 

31. New Orleans Saints= Rondale Moore – WR – Purdue 

I can just imagine Sean Payton being up all night crafting plays that have Kamara and Moore on the field at the same time along with Thomas. The miss matches you could make and the versatility you get from those 3 players would give defenders nightmares. Moore also gives you dynamic game changing ability on kick and punt returns, he is a threat to score every time he touches the ball. 

32. Pittsburgh Steelers= Daniel Faalele – OT – Minnesota 

Pittsburgh adds depth and youth to an aging offensive line. Faalele is 6’8” 400 pound monster who can fit in perfectly with the physicality the Steelers love to play with. 

 

Round 2

 

33. New York Jets= Travis Etienne – RB – Clemson

34. Jacksonville Jaguars= Jackson Carman – OT – Clemson 

35. Dallas Cowboys= Eric Stokes – CB – Georgia 

36.New York Giants= Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah – LB – Notre Dame 

37. Washington= Rashawn Slater – OT – Northwestern 

38. L.A. Chargers= Josh Meyers – IOL – Ohio St.

39. Miami Dolphins= Najee Harris – RB – Alabama 

40. Cincinnati Bengals= Liam Eichenberg – OT – Notre Dame 

41. Carolina Panthers= Jalen Mayfield – OT – Michigan 

42. Atlanta Falcons= Kyle Trask – QB – Florida 

43. Detroit Lions= Marvin Wilson – IDL – Florida St.

44. Jacksonville Jaguars= Aidan Hutchinson – EDGE – Michigan 

45. New England Patriots= Chris Olave – WR – Ohio St. 

46. Denver Broncos= Quincy Roche – EDGE – Miami 

47. San Francisco 49ers= Tyson Campbell – CB – Georgia

48. Chicago Bears= Tyler Shelvin – IDL – LSU

49. Cleveland Browns= Asante Samuel Jr. – CB – Florida St. 

50. Indianapolis Colts= Paulson Adebo – CB – Stanford 

51. Philadelphia Eagles= Chazz Surratt – LB – North Carolina 

52. Arizona Cardinals= Carlos Basham Jr. – EDGE – Wake Forest 

53. Miami Dolphins= Alijah Vera-Tucker – IOL – USC

54. L.A. Rams= Walker Little – OT – Stanford 

55. L.A. Raiders= Cameron McGrone – LB – Michigan 

56. Tennessee Titans= Hamilcar Rashed Jr. – EDGE – Oregon St. 

57. Tampa Bay Buccaneers= Christian Barmore – IDL – Alabama 

58. Seattle Seahawks= Israel Mukuamu – CB – South Carolina

59. Baltimore Ravens= Terrace Marshall Jr. – WR – LSU

60. Buffalo Bills= Jaylen Twyman – IDL – Pittsburgh

61. Green Bay Packers= Brevin Jordan – TE – Miami 

62. Kansas City Chiefs= Amon-Ra St. Brown – WR – USC

63. New Orleans Saints= Jabril Cox – LB – LSU

64. Pittsburgh Steelers= Chuba Hubbard – RB – Oklahoma St.

Should the Eagles move on from Zach Ertz?

photo by: theeagleswire.usatoday.com

 

With another loss Sunday coming at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers it is fair to assume the Eagles are a let down this year. Should they even bother with trying to win the division? A playoff berth will almost certainly end in a loss and more disappointment for eagles fans everywhere. If your like me and don’t see the birds flying high this year you might already be looking ahead to next year. With the Eagles currently being an estimated $68,000,000 over the 2021 cap things look bleak heading in to the future there will be no extra money to bring in free agents next year the onus must be put on drafting. Whether you believe in Howie’s ability to draft good players or not that will be the only option next year and frankly a different conversation for another day.

 

With Zach Ertz demanding a new contract, wanting to be paid like Kittle, having a heated verbal confrontation with the GM, and lack of production this season what would make the Eagles want to extend him? Through 5 games this year Ertz has a total of 20 catches on 35 targets,135 yards and 1 TD, not bad but definitely pales in comparison to Kittle who through only 3 games has a total of  23 catches on 28 targets, 271 yards, and 1TD.  With two less games Kittle’s production and efficiency top Ertz. Don’t forget about the other tight end the Eagles have in 25 year old Dallas Goedert who through 3 games this year has a total of 13 catches on 18 targets, 138 yards, and 1TD. While also being a better run blocker than Zach Ertz is as well as being more dynamic after the catch 68 of Dallas’ 138 yards are from YAC (yards after the catch) opposed to Ertz who has 34 of his 135 yards come from YAC. Even though Dallas missed 2 games so far this year he has more yards and the same amount of TD’s as Ertz, all while being five years younger and the #2 tight end on the team imagine if he got all the targets Ertz did.

 

While Ertz has been a long time favourite of Carson Wentz this season has looked different, is something missing? There is a clear disconnect with them which shows up in games only having a 57% completion rate when throwing to Ertz is the lowest of his career with the next lowest being his rookie year where caught 63% of passes thrown his way. Through Ertz’ career he has varied in this statistic but no other year has been this bad; 2013=63%, 2014=65%, 2015=66%, 2016=73%, 2017=67%, 2018=74%, 2019=65%. A fair question to ask is Ertz getting older and slowing down or is the disconnect mental? Regardless neither of those will help you get a new contract.

 

Ertz is 29 now and will be 30 in November with only one year on left on his contract after this year, if the Eagles do not plan on resigning him I believe it would be best to move on form him at the trade deadline. The Eagles would free up around $5,000,000 in cap space for next year which we established earlier they desperately need. The Eagles have to make a decision on who they want to extend Ertz or Goedert they can not keep them both and both have expiring contracts in 2021. With that said I would personally go with the tight end that is five years younger and gives you more after the catch along with better run blocking not to mention they wont have to pay Goedert what they would have to pay Ertz who believes he should be paid like the #1 tight end in the NFL. So if the Eagles come to the same decision it would be wise to move on from him this year with a probable loss next week to the ravens that would put the Eagles at 1-4-1 which would almost guarantee they don’t make the playoffs if the played in any other division in football, luckily for them they play in the NFC east. Even though a playoff berth is still possible I don’t think this team will do anything if they get in. I believe it would be wise to look forward to the future and re-build this aging line up.

 

As it stands the trade deadline will be November 3rd, the Eagles need to be sellers this year and come out of this season with more draft picks the roster is getting very old and they are way over the cap next year moving Ertz will help in both of those concerns and could really help a contending team. With that said the Eagles will need the right offer, yes I think they should move on from Ertz but not for anything less than a 2nd round pick. Of course theres options for a player swap or player plus picks deal but if its just picks I could not let him go for anything less then a 2nd. Ertz is having a down year but he is arguably the third best tight end in the NFL behind Kittle and Kelce, the Eagles goal is to get better long term if they move on from Ertz for a 4th round pick for example it just is not worth it at that point I would just keep him for next year and re-sign Goedert and let Ertz walk after his contract. The Eagles still have to compete next year and with the way Howie has been picking a later round pick would not contribute to the team, leaving them worse off and still approximately $63,000,000 over the cap (if they make no other moves).

 

Some potential landing spots for Ertz would be Seattle, Arizona, New England, and the New York Jets. All of the teams mentioned have a 2nd round pick in the 2021 draft.  Seattle who could be one piece away from winning it all this year would be a good fit, Olsen’s deal is over after this season and the tight end room in Seattle is less then ideal, giving Russ a security blanket while having DK over the top and Locket in the middle would make the Seahawks offence unlimited. Seattle has been known not to value there picks as highly as other teams in the past. Arizona has a chance to go farther then some people may think while they might be more than one piece away it has been clear watching them this year the offence needs more reliable options for Murray. Hopkins has been great but they can not rely on him making 10-15 catches every week to win Ertz would come in right away and provide another threat on offence forcing the defence to chose between doubling Hopkins or Ertz either way the other should flourish, both players are used to being doubled this would make everyone more dangerous in the Cardinals offence. The Cardinals traded for big name pass catcher in the offseason and it worked out great maybe they do it again and find similar success. The Patriots proved two years ago they are willing to move on form a 2nd round pick with no problem trading for Sanu. Ertz is miles ahead of the player Sanu is and was at the time of the trade so the Pats shouldn’t have a hard time letting go of a 2nd for Ertz. If they do trade for Ertz  and they decide to pick up Bell the Patriots offence would now consist of Cam Newton, Zach Ertz, Le’Veon Bell, Julian Edelman, and Sony Michell. Making them contenders once again while paying almost nothing for superstar players, seems like a Belichick move to me. Finally the Jets they are no where close to contending but Joe Douglas came form Philadelphia and there is a good possibility he still loves Ertz and the Jets are one of the few teams who can actually pay Ertz what he wants in a extension. The Jets need all the help they can get offensively and Ertz has proven to be a great option for young quarterbacks whether they keep Darnold or draft a new QB both would love to have Ertz around. the Jets also have an abundance of picks next year with two 1st round picks and two 3rd round picks so they might be a bit more willing to move on from there 2nd round pick.

What to expect form the Eagles in week 2

What to expect form the Eagles in week 2

 

With a disappointing week 1 in the past its time to look ahead to week 2 with the Eagles taking on the Rams at 1:00pm Sunday. Last week the Eagles struggled with injuries on both offence and defence, going into the game the Eagles were missing 8 starters; Andre Dillard(LT), Brandon Brooks (RG), Alshon Jeffrey (WR), Lane Johnson (RT), Miles Sanders (RB), Javon Hargrave (DT), Derek Barnett (DE),  and Will Parks (S) he was expected to start in big nickel packages. On top of all the injuries they came into the game with, more players unfortunately suffered injury. Brandon Graham (DE) was taken out of the game and evaluated for a concussion ending his night early along with Jack Driscoll who started at right tackle for the injured Johnson, leaving the Eagles with the 3rd string option Jordan Mialata. Vinny Curry also left the game with a hamstring injury that is expected to keep him sidelined for 4 weeks. While Desean Jackson often looked injured or in pain during week 1, along with playing a limited number of snaps  he said he is healthy and ready to go for week 2. Now for some good news Lane Johnson, Miles Sanders and Javon Hargrave are all expected to make their season debut this Sunday against the Rams. Brandon Graham is out of concussion protocol and expected to play Sunday, Barnett is listed as questionable but was a full participant in practice on Friday so hopes are high he will play too.

 

Coach Pederson said earlier today (Friday) that Nate Herbig would get the start at right guard on Sunday, creating starting offensive line that should consist of Jason Peters, Isaac Seumalo, Jason Kelce, Nate Herbig, and Lane Johnson respectively. Driscoll will serve as the backup tackle/ guard along with Matt Pryor my assumption is Pryor will be backing up the left side while Driscoll takes care of the right having played both positions in college as well as starting at right tackle last week. The addition of Lane should instantly make the Eagles better across the board on the line, although I am still worried about Herbig having to go up against Aaron Donald. Herbig struggled last week going against a very good Washington front this week it gets even harder having to go up against the best defensive tackle in the NFL. I expect Kelce to help and double team Donald when possible but if he can create 1 on 1 matchups with either Herbig or Seumalo its going to be another long day for Wentz neither of them can block Donald alone. Last week Donald wrecked drives for the Cowboys throwing around all-pro Zack Martin, Connor Williams, and Joe Looney like they were children, Donald has the potential to do what he did last week and blow up drives he can single handedly change games. The Eagles have to make stopping Donald a priority, whether its quick passes, moving the pocket, rolling out, or the screen game the coaching staff has to do a much better job helping Wentz then they did last week. Pederson credited the lack of roll outs, and moving pockets to unsuccessful first down plays last week that is a horrible excuse, he could have changed the game plan at halftime once he seen his O-line could not keep wentz upright. Not to mention he should have already had that in his game-plan the coaches had a whole offseason to prepare for Washington knowing what they had on their D-line and failed to come up with alternative ways of keeping Wentz clean, which resulted in 8 sacks for Washington.

 

If the Eagles plan on winning this week the coaches need to figure out more creative ways to keep Wentz safe because he wont do it himself. This is the type of player Wentz is it comes with the good and the bad sometimes Wentz can stay alive and make a play 40 yards down field, other times he gets sacked for holding the ball to long or trying to elude every pass rusher apposed to throwing it away. You cant blame every sack on the O-line or the coaches last year Wentz has a total of 607 throws and only 10 throw aways along with 37 sacks and 9 fumbles lost showing that he threw the ball away 0.016% of his passes. Coming into his fifth year he has shown no improvement on this since his rookie year so i firmly believe this is the player you get in Carson Wentz, like it or hate it i don’t see it changing anytime soon.

 

On a more positive not the Eagles defence looked good against Washington, they generated a good pass rush at the start of the game which can only be improved upon now that Hargrave is coming back so they should find some success against an average interior Rams O-line. Pressure is the key to victory for the Eagles in this game Jared Goff is notorious for playing bad under pressure. Last year Goff played in seven games where he was pressured 20% or more he had a combined completion percentage of 63% in those games, throwing for 6 touchdowns and 7 interceptions while only managing to win two of those games giving him a record of 2-5 when pressured more than 20%. I believe this to be an accomplishable task for the Eagles D-line considering the talent they have at that position. Last week against the Cowboys Goff was 21-30 for 275 yards with no touchdowns and 1 interception boasting a completion percentage of 64.5%. Of Goff’s 20 completions 13 came through play action accounting for 112 yards, Goff’s longest throw of the day was for 31 yards and 17 of his 20 completions all came under 10 yards, with 7 of them being behind or at the line of scrimmage. Out all those throws Goff only had 80 yards through the air meaning that his receivers accounted for 195 yards after the catch. What I am conveying to you here is that Goff will not win the game he is a good game manager but if the Eagles can stop the run and make him have to pass downfield that is a recipe for disaster when it comes to Goff. If the Eagles can pressure Goff and make tackles at the catch point there is no reason for them not to have a dominant day on defence.

 

The Rams two biggest threats on offence are Woods and Kupp, I expect Slay to follow Woods as he did McLaurin in week 1 with Kupp in the slot he should be matched up against Robey-Coleman who said earlier this week that he is extra pumped to play his former team. Slay found success in week 1 being targeted 6 times and only giving up 3 completions for 30 yards and no touchdowns while also having 3 total tackles. Robey-Coleman only gave up 2 completions himself for 30 yards and no touchdowns while having 2 tackles. Woods and Kupp are a much more difficult matchup for the Eagles but as I said earlier if the Eagles can pressure Goff he will be off in his accuracy, if Slay and Robey-Coleman can just do there job and not give up any big plays I think the Eagles will be fine. A main factor will be stopping the run, one of Jim Schwartz’s favourite things to say has a huge impact on the game. As stated above Goff had 112 of his 275 total yards come off play action if the Eagles stop the run they would also be eliminating the threat of play action forcing Goff to stand in the pocket and deliver throws which he has proven he is not capable of when under pressure.

 

In summary the Eagles should see a much improved offence with multiple starters returning, I do expect Wentz to bounce back as well as the coaches having more ways to move Wentz and keep him clean. Miles Sanders gives Wentz another dynamic option in the passing game along with a major improvement to the running attack, having Lane back will give Wentz more time in the pocket as well. The defence should also see improvements heading into week 2 with a healthy D-line they need to wreck havoc in this game and take it over for the Eagles. Doug Pederson has never started his career 0-2 and the Eagles are a resilient team that you can expect will be ready to prove all the doubters wrong, almost as if they enjoy being the underdogs. Its hard not to panic after a disappointing week 1 but we have to remember there was no preseason and it will take teams sometime to acclimate to the regular season, I can guarantee you the Eagles will look different in week 2 and most likely the Rams will too. This should be a tough game that I can see going either way, if the Eagles can stay healthy and put pressure in Goff’s face I see them winning this game, if they can’t it might not be such a fun day in Philly.

3 Bold Predictions for the Philadelphia Eagles

3 Bold Predictions for the Philadelphia Eagles

With the upcoming season still in flux there is no certainty we get all 16 games or a season at all. That being said I am hoping we get a full season call it being naive or overly optimistic, I just can’t imagine going 20 months without the NFL. So for everyone that is hoping and praying there is a season like me here are some bold predictions for the Eagles to help curb your appetite. 

1) JJ Arcega-Whiteside has a breakout year. Last year was disappointing to say the least for JJ he had high expectations coming into his rookie year. Being a jump ball specialist at Stanford along with having an exciting preseason, he did not live up to what fans had hoped for. JJ himself said that he played the better part of last season with injuries which could have contributed to his lack of production and ability to make plays. Along with trying to learn every receiver position opposed to just the X, Y or Z position. From learning to play three positions, along with being hurt and then on top of all that being forced into a starting lineup too early. I think it’s fair to say JJ could have had an easier transition to the NFL. Receiver is one of the toughest transitions to make from college to NFL, JJ had nothing going in his favour last year. With all that said JJ showed some not a lot but some potential last year as to why he was the 57th overall selection in last year’s draft. In Weeks 14 and 17 in must win games against division rivals the Giants and Cowboys respectively he had two of his best games all year. JJ showed progression throughout the year and should have the playbook memorized and be fully healthy for the start of the season. It is common for rookie receivers to struggle in their first year and find success in the second hopefully JJ falls into that category. 6’2” and 225 pounds JJ is the ideal size to play the X and with Alshon most likely starting the season on the PUP the job is JJ’s to lose. DeSean will more than likely start at the Z and I can imagine Reagor, Ward will compete for the slot with Goodwin nipping at Jacksons heels for play time. This is a perfect opportunity for JJ to breakout and become a full time starting receiver.

2) Miles Sanders leads the league in all purpose yards. Last season Miles proved he can be a weapon anywhere on the field regardless of his supporting cast. In his rookie year Miles accumulated 818 rushing yards, 509 receiving yards, and 314 kick return yards, along with 6 total touchdowns and 2 fumbles for a total of 1641 all purpose yards. Which landed him in the eight spot last season. While most of the team’s starting skill players fell to injury at one point or another through the season Miles proved he was reliable, suiting up for all 16 games as well as the playoffs. McCaffrey was first in all purpose yards last season having a total of 2392 all purpose yards. This might look like an insurmountable task but let me assure you it’s not. Miles only started 11 games last year and had multiple games where he was clearly not the feature back. From about week 10 on he was more frequently used and by the end of the season he became one of the Eagles best weapons. The progression from being a 3rd down back to one of the team’s most dangerous weapons in his first year is spectacular. If Miles can keep progressing the way he did last year it’s safe to say he has a much better 2nd season, similar to what McCaffrey did in his second year. With Jordan Howard gone Miles should see the bulk of the carries this coming season. Miles became a much better runner as the season progressed with every week he gained more patience, vision and understanding for the run game. Miles did well improving his run game but where he did his most damage last year was as a pass catcher. While the team was depleted at WR Miles delivered, emerging as a dynamic playmaker out of the backfield. Whether it was screens, wheel routes or seam routes he made plays, all while opposing defences gameplaned for him. Proving to be a mismatch for linebackers, teams will need to cover him with a safety this upcoming season which would leave the defence vulnerable over the top. With DeSean being back and the addition of Reagor and Goodwin this would be a risk for defences. If this results in a big play over the top you can say goodbye to that safety over Sanders, then he can go to work on whatever LB a team tries to cover him with. With the increased workload and his continuous development I don’t think it’s that crazy to see him leading the league in all purpose yards this coming season.

3) Fletcher Cox gets 12 plus sacks. You might look at this and think I really played it safe with my last bold prediction but that’s not the case. While consistently being talked about as a top 2 or 3 DT Cox has only gone past 10 sacks once in his career in 2018 having 10.5 sacks. His next best year was 2015 with 9.5 and last year he only managed 3.5 sacks having one of his worst years in the NFL. It is worth mentioning he played through multiple injuries last season which may have contributed to his low sack production. With that being said I think he is primed for a big year, wanting to prove he is not declining but instead in his prime. With the addition of Javon Hargrave and Malik Jackson coming back healthy, Cox should have all the help he needs on the inside to rotate and stay fresh. Cox should benefit from both of them seeing a lot less double teams than he did last season, freeing him up 1on1 should allow him to use his power and great bull rush move to get in the backfield. This is Cox’s year to return to his 2018 form, show last year was an injury filled fluke of a season and insert himself back into the conversation for best DT in the NFL. He has all the help he needs from an improved secondary to better D-line than he had in 2018 it’s all on him now, time show everyone how good he really is!

Shayne’s 2021 mock draft: Who goes #1?

Photo by: clutchpoints.com

 

With the 2021 season quickly approaching what better way to get you excited then a mock draft to see where your favourite college players might end up in the future. This mock draft has no trades, with the order being set from the draft network not where I think each team will finish. With that said let’s have some fun because this will definitely  not look the same after the season.

 

Round 1

 

  1. Jacksonville= Penei Sewell /OT/ Oregon.

 

If the Jags do end up with the #1 pick I could see them trading down with so many needs to fill on their roster. Not to mention the ransom they would get for the #1 pick. Since that’s not an option they take the best tackle in the draft and help keep Minshew protected.

 

  1. Washington= Shaun Wade /CB/ Ohio St.

 

Same as the Jags if Washington is here I think they trade the pick. Since they can’t do that, mine as well take the best corner in the country. Wade should be a huge help for Washington’s lackluster secondary.

 

  1. Cincinnati= Ja’Marr Chase /WR/ LSU.

 

The Bengals could use help at other positions but I couldn’t help myself teaming Joe Burrow up with his favourite target from the 2019 national championship run.

 

  1. Carolina= Trevor Lawrence /QB/Clemson.

 

Lawrence will be long gone by the #4 pick in reality but this is not reality. What better spot to land than in Carolina. Rhule gets his QB1 for the future.

 

  1. N.Y. Jets= Gregory Rousseau /EDGE/ Miami.

 

I can not remember the last time the jets had a good pass rusher, that all changes with this pick. Rousseau should be a game changer for the jets.

 

  1. N.Y. Giants= Micah Parsons /LB/ Penn St.

 

The Giants go with the best available player on the board that’s not named Fields, Parsons can make an immediate impact in all assets of the game.

 

  1. Miami= Jaylen Waddle /WR/ Alabama.

 

Miami lands their deep threat, and Tua reunites with his college teammate. The added familiarity should make Waddle an immediate contributor to a less than spectacular WR room.

 

  1. Las Vegas= Justin Fields /QB/ Ohio St.

 

Fields lasting this long is a steal for the raiders. If Carr has another mediocre season the raiders and the new fan base will be ready to move in a new direction. Plus Mayock gets to draft another power 5 player in the first round.

 

  1. Detroit= Dylan Moses /LB/ Alabama.

 

Moses is an athletic freak who can go sideline to sideline. He should be able to do everything and anything Patricia thinks up for him.

 

  1. Miami (from Houston)= Najee Harris /RB/ Alabama.

 

Back to the well Miami takes another Alabama player and gets their own triumvirate. Harris is a beast who can be a bell cow and take some pressure off Tua, as well as help in the passing game.

 

  1. Denver= Samuel Cosmi /OT/ Texas

 

A day one starter that can come in and help Drew Lock stay upright and protected for years to come.

 

  1. Arizona= Marvin Wilson /DT/ Florida St

 

Arizona gets one of the draft’s best defensive lineman to pair with Chandler Jones. Continuing in the theme of 2020’s draft Kingsbury adds another top player to his defence.

 

  1. L.A. Chargers= Alex Leatherwood /OT/ Alabama.

 

With the addition of Bulaga playing LT I think Leatherwood can move to RT and make the Chargers offensive line a strength. If they hold on to Pouncey and Turner the Chargers might end up with a top 3 offensive line.

 

  1. Cleveland= Wyatt Davis /G/ Ohio St.

 

Davis is a monster who can step in day1 and make an immediate impact in the run and pass game. Keeping Mayfield clean should be a priority for the Browns and adding Davis would give them a collection of Conklin, Wills, Tretter, Bitonio, and Davis. Potential to be a great Offensive line that can run you over and protect Baker.

 

  1. Chicago= Trey Lance /QB/ North Dakota St.

 

Chicago’s time with Trubisky comes to an end. Nick Foles is not that long term answer. Lance steps in with championship experience and all the tools to turn the Bears around and help the fan base forget about the 2017 draft.

 

  1. Atlanta= Travis Etienne /RB/ Clemson.

 

Atlantas one year experiment with Gurley does not work out and they move on from him and fill the gap with arguably the draft’s top RB. Etienne can be a three down back and Atlantas home field allows him to truly take advantage of his speed and cutting ability.

 

  1. Jacksonville (from L.A. Rams)= Patrick Surtain II /CB/ Alabama.

 

The Jags have lost Bouye and Ramsey over the last two years, they reload at corner with Surtain. Who is 6’1” and 203 pounds checking the height, weight, speed boxes Jacksonville covets in corners.

 

  1. Tennessee= Christian Barmore /DT/ Alabama.   

 

Barmore and Simmons would be a great young tandem at DT. Along with Barmore’s versatility to play NT he would fit perfectly with the Titans defence.

 

  1. Green Bay= DeVonta Smith /WR/ Alabama.

 

The Packers have put off getting help at the receiver position for too long, they finally address it this year with Smith. Smith can come in on day one and play the Z role while Adams plays the X giving whoever is under centre two great options to throw too.

 

  1. Buffalo= Creed Humphrey /IOL/ Oklahoma.

 

Humphrey can step in and start at either centre or guard for the Bills. His leadership and intelligence can be a great addition to Allen and the offensive line, letting the Bills do what they love and pound the ball.

 

  1. Pittsburgh= Justyn Ross /WR/ Clemson.

 

Ross is a top end talent, if not for his injury he could be in the conversation for the top 10. Pittsburgh has a track record of taking receivers late and finding a way for them to flourish. This year they take one with their 1st round pick and land a great talent who could end up being a top receiver in the NFL.

 

  1. Minnesota= Caleb Farley /CB/ Virginia Tech.

 

Minnesota gets a  6’2″ corner who excels in press coverage. Farley was a high school QB who has lots of room to grow and learn the corner position, he already has all the tools Mike Zimmer wants in a corner.

 

  1. Indianapolis= Carlos Basham Jr /Edge/ Wake Forest.

 

With Houston being on the wrong side of 30 the Colts add another pass rusher to help Buckner disrupt quarterbacks. Basham has impressive size at 6’5″ 275 pounds and can impact the run game as well as the passing attack.

 

  1. Seattle= Daniel Faalele /OT/ Minnesota.

 

Ogbuehi is not under contract for 2021 and Brown will be 35 on the last year of his deal it’s safe to say the Seahawks need tackle help. Faalele is a monster of a man 6’8″ 400 pounds he can start day one at right tackle. Faalele fits great with the Seahawks identity of being a power run team.

 

  1. Philadelphia= Rondale Moore /WR/ Purdue.

 

With Alshon most likely leaving and DeSean being 33 with 1 year left on his contract the Eagles need more weapons for Wentz. I can imagine Pederson using Moore in a similar role to what Sproles did where he is used on kick/punt returns, lined up in the slot and in the backfield. Pederson loves creating miss matches for his players and Moore is the ultimate miss match in this year’s draft. Having explosive speed and incredible after the catch ability Moore is a nightmare for defenders.

 

  1. New England= Chuba Hubbard /RB/ Oklahoma St.

 

Hubbard is an explosive runner that can contribute in the pass game. I am sure Belichick will find creative ways to use one of college football’s most productive runners. With White not under contract for 2021 and Michel only having one year left the Pats could move on from both and have Hubbard under contract for the next 5-6 years .

 

  1. Dallas= Kyle Pitts /TE/ Florida.

 

Pitts fills an obvious need for the Cowboys and can contribute in the passing game right away. With the addition of Pitts the Cowboys could potentially have the league’s best offence. Dak would have a bolstering supporting cast of Cooper, Gallup, Lamb, Elliot, Pollard, and Pitts, to go with a great offensive line.

 

  1. Tampa Bay= Asante Samuel Jr /CB/ Florida St.

 

Samuel Jr stays in Florida and goes to a Tampa team that needs all the help they can get in the secondary. He can play out wide or in the slot oftentimes Florida St would leave him on an island with the opposition’s best WR.

 

  1. New Orleans= Paulson Adebo /CB/ Stanford.

 

With Janoris Jenkins having an out on his contract for 2021 and the Saints having some big contracts coming up the addition of Adebo would allow them to move on from Janoris and save cap money. Adebo would be opposite of Lattimore and can be a great #2 corner he is leggy, tall at 6’1″ and has long arms. He plays his best in off man which he can do going up against the Z while Lattimore plays the X.

 

  1. San Francisco= Jackson Carman /OT/ Clemson.

 

Trent Williams only has a 1 year contract and cannot be tagged next season, if the 49ers do not re-sign him they would have a huge hole at LT. Carman is a big man at 6’5″ 345 pounds, he is a people mover in the run game. Carman will fit well into what the 49ers want to do.

 

  1. Baltimore= Aidan Hutchinson /Edge/ Michigan.

 

John Harbaugh gets his brother’s best pass rusher. Hutchinson can play multiple positions along the line and is very stout against the run. He is an impressive 6’5″ 278 pounds which is exactly the type of player Baltimore wants. His experience playing high level competition and facing the same weather elements he will face in Baltimore making him an ideal addition to the team.

 

  1. Kansas City= Jaylen Twyman /DT/ Pittsburgh.

 

Kansas City gets a steal with Twyman this late in the draft. He is an excellent pass rusher who can join Chris Jones and Justin Houston in harassing opposing quarterbacks. With Kansas City most likely to be playing with the lead in their games this would allow Twyman, Jones, and Houston to do what they do best rush the passer. Giving the Chiefs a dangerous pass rush almost seems unfair.
