    I know many will disagree on my placement but that’s how talent evaluation works. This is a tough year. Take Ya-Sin a CB who I’ve had scouts place him late 1 to early 2 while others tell me day 3. This is not where I think people will go with these picks, it’s where I would take them. It’s certainly fine to disagree but please tell me why you differ. I’ll tell you why I put them where I did. They are in order of preference by pick number but of course the later picks will be impacted by previous choices. Of course if someone I like at 33 is still there at 65 they’d be my first choice. I know I’ve picked a bunch of WRs, but if there’s a position needing depth, that’s it. Also this draft will see a ton taken with these pass happy NFL offenses. If you wonder why I elevated Sutton Smith to the top at 139, I expect him to be the top special teams player in this draft. The Cards have to improve special teams!

    65
    Lindstrom G BC

    103
    Cajuste OL WVU

    Would take that group in a heartbeat.

    Add in Q or Bosa at #1 and a TE after 139.

    I do like the WRs that you have picked. I agree that the Cards need them especially since there really weren't many good ones in free agency.

    Thanks Harry. Where would you rank wr Andy Issabella? I know he’s small but that little booger seems to be very scrappy and quick.

    I think the second and third rounds are thick with WR and OL, and it makes me sad to think we may only have one pick in each round.

    Awesome stuff Harry. You don't have any TE's listed, is that because you think we have much bigger needs?

    If we were picking a track team I’d like him better. He’ll go by round 3 and for everyone of these guys who makes it there’s 3 that don’t. I’d rather take a guy like Butler late in the draft but who fills a similar role. I just don’t think the Cards can afford third round risks. I think he’s a good player but tends to body catch often which is very hard to do in the NFL. Many of these guys fail because they can’t take the physicality.

    The good ones will go early. Until I see this offense I’m not certain which tight end fits. Small pool, very top heavy.

    I like Miles Boykin a bit better than you do I guess... I expect him to go in the third or fourth round . I would take him at 103 if he is there....dude has talent, skills, and pizazz

    You guys don’t make it easy. He may just have scratched the surface on his already impressive ability. His concussion problems at UT concern me. He’s also very raw and it’s already hard for first year WRs to contribute. He’s a poor route runner so a complex offense may also make it harder for him to shine. This is another risk the Cards likely won’t take but if things break right someone might win big with him.

    Yea I’m not sure why he continues to miss opportunities. Was going to play in Sr bowl but couldn’t after what was thought to be a minor knee procedure. Then he was going to be at combine but couldn’t make that either. Baylor Pro day is last opportunity. Hope he can make it. Freak athlete, hard worker but your points re little experience at the position are valid. Kingsbury coached against him in his last game before being fired so he might have an opinion that could lead to a late round flyer. Be interested to see if and where he is drafted.

    Thanks for posting. Would you take JJ over N'Keal at 33? I think they will both be great, but N'Keal is more of a gamebreaker to me

    I know you are asking Harry, but Arcega-Whiteside looks like Michael Floyd to me, and I dont mean that in a good way.

    Both seem really stiff, not flexible fluid athletes. I think AW has a very limited upside.
