Lol was hard rewatching the 2007 draft brown over Peterson ouch
That draft was deep
Only time will tell. To be honest it seems that the reality is very few college OT's are NFL ready anymore. I think interior OL have an easier transition and become impactful sooner than rookie OT's.
no he’s right
That may be true. However, linemen in college are not being groomed for the tradition nfl offense. That being said there seems to be a transition to a more open style college approach to offenses. So an OT is being graded in the traditional style may grade high but might have to adjust when he gets to the nfl. Does a team want a tank or are they geared more for a hum-v.
Just a thought.
Preponderance of Air Raid offenses in college
Levi Brown's nickname of the Human Turnstile was absolutely earned.
More fuel for Ezra Cleveland in the second round.
Take some time and read everything out there on the Tackles, it's not good. These are all RTs with flaws. One Tackle everyone wants, was a combine star, which is the first giant No No. Jonathan Cooper ran a a cool 40 too when Keim drafted him, but it didnt translate to the field. They all have big question mark's, not worth an 8 pick.
The elite prospects are at WR, its deep but Lamb shines ahead of the other 2, being this offense is built on the run after the catch, he has chemistry with the QB already and familiarity in the offense. People say they dont need a WR, but this team runs a spread 4 or 5 WR set that will be out there. KK had to scale his offense back due to not enough WRs to run 5, they ran 4 often. Hopkins Fitz Lamb and Kirk with Murray and Drake is a nice base offense in a KK spread offense.
Wirfs could be the next Brown. Give me the guy with a natural feel for the game (Wills) over the athletic freak with poor technique (Wirfs). Neither are elite prospects though.
I feel for Lamb is almost a for sure contributor long term.. I can't really tell if that is true for the O-lineman.. That's why I'd like Simmons or Brown.. We need as sure of a thing as we can get.. I'd be happy with 90% odds at being top 20% at their position
Jim Nagy also said Drew Lock was the best prospect in last years QB class.
That's what need drafting gets you, never draft for need, nobody liked the Levi Brown pick, except for the same crowd now that screams keep Rosen. You take the best player regardless position
I know in another thread I was told you can't compare Brown to these prospects, but it sounds to me that he would very well be the number one olineman taken in this draft if they were all coming out at the same time.. that's kind of scary..
Read the write up nobody here screams want him on the Cards, they all have red flags. So much so theybfont even know who the best one is, that's never a good sign. Ogden, Thanas are not there, it's more guys who they are not sure what position they will even play. A questionable RT ot Guard is never worth a early first, never.
