    Cheese and I were at Coachella and we were likewise jumping and down and our friends and observers thought we were nuts . . . oh wait, no they didn’t, we fit right in . . .

    Mac Jones. The surrounding cast at AL always makes individual players look better. In fact many have little upside left. Doesn’t mean they aren’t quality players but Jones won’t be throwing to players who dominate at their positions like he was in college. He’s likely okay, but nothing special. He will max his talent more quickly than the others so early on he’ll be fine but in the long run he’ll have less to offer.

    Unfortunately it looks like the 49ers are getting Justin Fields or Zach Wilson, depending on who the Jets take.

    Any player we draft and move to a different position.

    Actually the biggest reason I don't like Jones is Jaylen Waddle. if you look at almost any highlight tape of Waddle you'll see 4-5 catches from Jones and every one of them the deep throw Waddle is 5 yards behind the defense, jones underthrows it and Waddle slows up or jumps and makes a great catch. They make Waddle look amazing, he is, but you realize that virtually all of those throws are wide open underthrows. In the NFL guys just don't get wide open that often, when they do you better have the arm to get it there or the DB will recover. You don't want to OVER throw it, give the guy a chance yes, but you watch Waddle and you see quickly that jones repeatedly underthrew him at Alabama

    Devonta is also pretty good catching in traffic. I noticed more with Waddle because he’s just more explosive and Jones could lead him.

    Mac was probably overthrowing in his pro day to overcompensate.

    Smith is an enigma to me. You look at him physically and his testing numbers and he's just a guy. Nothing remotely says special player. You look at his film and stats and get the opposite.

    I won't lie, he makes me nervous.

    Yup. Makes me nervous in both directions. Nervous to draft a twig who could be snapped at the nfl level. Makes me nervous to pass on a guy who could have greatness in him.

    My biggest issue is that after 4 years of college he's still 166lbs. I doubt he's suddenly going to be 190 in the NFL. How much punishment for how long can that frame take?

    There's a huge difference between college and the NFL. He's going to get hit a lot more.

    And a lot harder, by bigger men, running at greater speeds.
