I am not an Arcega-Whiteside fan.  I think he lacks the athleticism to separate and be successful in the NFL.  I'm OK with Gary despite his lack of college production (I think that can be explained by the way he was used.  I like Oliver at TE.  Last 3 picks?  Meh, but at the tail end of the draft you may not get difference makers any way.

I could honestly live with this draft.

 

There may be only one definitive starter in the first 3-4, and I always hope for more, but I believe all of the first 6 have the potential to contribute during 2019.

I like him but I'm not really sure what his upside is. Seems like he's really freakin good at contested catches, specifically fades, but he didn't really do much else at Stanford. As far as athleticism, granted it was a pro-day so take a grain of salt, but he ran a 4.49 40. Definitely didn't look that fast on tape though.

J.J. is a stud and is a perfect compliment for the WRs on our roster right now. I'd be stoked if we got him in the 3rd round

I would hate that draft. I’m not a fan of Gary or Whiteside.

Unless something really bad happens (and I hope it doesn't) you're going to live with this or any draft!

The Trayveon Williams pick was nice. Didn't care for the rest.

I do not like Rashan Gary as my #9 overall pick.  He certainly has the pedigree and athleticism but the production simply isn't there.  With that said, if there is something that Beane/McD see in him and they believe they could make him into a good player, I trust their player evaluations specially on the defensive side.   I like Arcega, great production, route running ability, hands, 50/50 ability and instincts.   I question his ability to get good separation but for a third rounder, I think he'd be a solid pick.   

 

The Bills I do believe are going to look for someone with some size at the WR postion this year through the draft and he's certainly an option.

don't know anything about players from rd 5 thru 7 ... whats a DS? ... Gary is a DE, oh and look who NFL.com says he compares to - Ezekiel Ansah, anyways Gary at 9 would leave Bills with no DT to take Kyles place.

Not a fan.

The only pick I like is the punter in the 7th.

Even if he becomes primarily a red-zone threat and never becomes a starter, if he can provide a good option near the end-zone for lobs it could be worth it.

I really hope he's that 5th round pick for us this year - was thinking it watching him here all season that he could be that LB/S hybrid with high football intelligence we snag in the 5th. But since I want it to happen, likely won't turn out that way either...

Not a huge fan of this one..

 

Would prefer another pick at 9.. 

 

Dont mind McGary but not at 40...

 

Could live with J.J. in the third but hoping they pick another guy earlier..

 

I wouidnt pick any of the Day 3 guys..

Gary is terrible at #9.  A guy with all world talent who has never produced.  PASS. 

 

McGary at 40 is okay. 

 

I like Whiteside at WR as a redzone target.

Kyle's replacement was drafted LAST year.

 

Now.....I think we should look to get better at the position sure....but the position was addressed a year earlier.   Gotta give these kids time to develop and Horrible Harry was not bad in his rookie year.

I like Harry but he doesn't seem to be making any sort of impact ... haven't gotten any kind of feel as if he could be a pass rusher... maybe they're just bringing him along slowly, not sure, but so far he seems to be JAG on the rotation.
