HH, I completely agree, but don’t you think that is mostly because of what the TV analysts say? That he is not that highly rated. I always think back on when the Raiders, with general manager Mike Mayock, in 2019 drafted Clelin Ferrell at #4 overall, and in 2021 drafted Alex Leatherwood at #17. Both were widely considered massive reaches by basically everyone watching, but what if Mayock had still been on TV instead of with the Raiders? Obviously, he would have hyped those two players leading up to the draft. So would it still have been considered massive reaches? I doubt it.Picking Verse @ 4 would cause fanbase to go into nuclear meltdown
I believe that Jared Verse is worthy of a very high selection, even though I know well that I go against what Mel Kiper, Daniel Jeremiah, Dane Brugler, and what other TV personalities say.
