The NFL Draft is coming up and it's the three days of the year where the NFL flexes its muscles as to how big it has become.
Outside of the first 32 picks, the SEC projects to be in good shape; CBS Sports has given 64 players a draftable grade.
This class is loaded with defensive players, particularly in the secondary. There is no Carson Wentz or Andrew Luck available. Skeptics like SEC Network Analyst Booger McFarland and former National Football League star Warren Sapp have express doubts that Garrett should be the first player taken. Will they do the same this time around? Trubisky has talent and is an intriguing prospect.
This makes sense on the other hand, too. It would certainly mean the team understands starter Kirk Cousins is on his way out the door. "But at some point you better start taking some difference-makers, and I think he's a difference-maker".
Colt McCoy is a bridge quarterback who could buy Trubisky a year or two. The cold reality is that, even if they can move up and get both players they want, the Browns need more than just the 11 picks they will have in this year's NFL Draft.
"Now this is something that would likely happen in real time when these teams were on the clock because obviously if the target is Mitchell Trubisky and he goes earlier than expected, then those discussions would be moot". Jacksonville has needed a consistent running game for a while now. It was easy for teams to put him out of sight, out of mind. But today, progress was made in the Gareon Conley case.
There have been a few shaky rumors about the Conley situation as teams try to gather info quickly, but one thing is for sure: As we saw with La'el Collins a few years back, there is a lot of money at stake here. Cam Newtons are a rare commodity and even he had plenty of junior college experience. As a matter of fact, don't take Mitch Trubisky at all.
If I was including trades, this is where I would throw one in. In my opinion, playing only 13 games isn't enough experience to come in and play well in the NFL. "For us, it's really exciting to be ready to go tomorrow", NFL Events Vice President Mary Pat Augenthaler said.
Notable players still on the board when the Giants made their pick in Mayock's mock draft: Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson, Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes, Western Kentucky offensive lineman Forrest Lamp and MI safety Jabrill Peppers.
While last year, the Los Angeles Rams and Philadelphia Eagles had traded up for the top two spots in order to get their franchise (they hope) quarterbacks, this year has seen no such movement. "Garett Bolles, I think he comes in Day 1 and competes at right tackle". I don't know what the heck I'm talking about.
