Who’s the ONE guy that you DON'T want in this draft?

Recommended Posts

I'm glad that so many people on here have the same take on Metcalf. I have the same problem with Bosa and the other low body fat gym rats that always seem to be hurt.

Kyler Murray ... The NFL isn't the Big 12

Rashan Gary ... No reason or many reasons, just pass on this guy.

I like Hock and I do feel that he will be our selection, but I just don't want a TE in the first round at all.  In the history of the NFL, how many eliteTEs has there been?  For those that play fantasy football each year, think about the TEs that you draft.  If you didn't get Gronk or Kelce over the past couple of years, you had to settle for any other TE because they're aren't many TEs that actually produce.  Finding an elite TE that can do it all is extremely rare.  To me, using a first round pick on a TE is just a waste unless the reward is worth the risk.

All depends on where they're picked, but I generally don't believe in:

  • Oliver
  • Gary
  • Isabella, Parris Campbell and other small WRs -- just not what we need out there
  • Devin White (I think he'll be a fine player but we don't need a MLB, he can't play outside, and it's ludicrous to ask the guy you just gave the keys to the defense to, to move positions)
  • TJ -- he'll go higher than his value is
  • ANY CB in the first few rds -- we're fine there, need help elsewhere

Parris Campbell is 6’1 210

he got hurt once in 3 years and it had nothing to do with having low body fat

His brother, JJ Watt, and other guys like them with extreme workout regimes always seem to get hurt. Just because he has been pretty lucky so far doesn't mean it won't bite him soon. I'm very cautious about guys like him.

It’s the first I’ve heard about their “extreme workout regime” ... but I’m sure he’s just very lucky

Rashan Gary, Brian Burns, DK Metcalf, Marquise Brown - in each case either athlete with too little proven ability or (Brown, Burns) too small to play in NFL - at least for a top-10 pick.

Burns, Gary, Metcalf and Jonah Williams. Not sure he translates into OT in the NFL.

Rashan Gary for sure.  I have 10 players at #9 I would be happy with.  That's a lot.  Beane has done a good job plugging holes so they can go in a few directions and one of them will be there at #9.

Metcalf, he's a pretender.

 

This times 100.  No 'upside' guys at 10 please.  Especially at WR.

Alright! I'll say it.. Oliver.

 

I think he's undersized and the only tape that I saw of him when he played *powerhouse* Texas Tech, he was pretty much neutralized by the middle of the 2nd quarter.

 

I haven't seen enough of him to really say, but something about him makes me nervous too.

Couldn’t agree with this more. Hock would be my least favorite potential pick. Keep in mind, neither Kelce nor Gronk were taken in the first round. TE is historically a huge high risk/low reward endeavor in the first round.

Gary, too small for 3t and too big/slow for DE. Let someone else take him before us....

He’s probably my answer as well. Injury concerns mixed with so-so production. He just feels like a guy that doesn’t love football.

Oliver, 

 

attitude 

Really?!? He has arguably the best motor in the draft. If you said Oliver because of his size or length, you’d get no debate. If we aren’t drafting Ed Oliver because he put on a winter coat...

Kelce was kicked off his team for a year for being a douchebag and Gronk had back surgery. They didn't end up being first round picks due to red flags, but that doesn't mean they didn't have first round film.

 

That being said there's merit to whether or not the value of selecting a TE early is worth it. Hockenson just looks to be a natural fit for this offense and it's needs. Both as a blocker and receiver, and because many evaluators think he can make an instant impact
