    I have Foster as my #5 prospect right now. Zach Cunningham as #9. Watching those guys go head to head during the scouting process will be fun. Cunningham has a higher ceiling IMO, but Foster is the safer pick. Cunningham could be really special if he cleans up all the missed tackles.

    Wartman-White? With his injuries, I can't imagine anyone taking him.

    I'm not listing only first round prospects. I don't know a certain value/Rd I'd put on many of these guys without doing a complete board. Injury type guys can still make it to the league. Udfa, late round, whatever.

    Poor guy is cursed. I really expected him to come back for a 6th year.

    I think Brandon Bell could be good with a bit of weight.

    Even if somehow they both end up as top 10 players to come out of this draft in a few years, it's highly unlikely they both get drafted top 10. Just look historically at ILB being taken top 10 in the last 10 years.

    Unless Cunningham ends up being transitioned to an edge rusher at the next level and drafted as such... then there's a slight chance I suppose

    Foster is rated the #1 LB out of 194 in this year's draft. Not bad. I can't see Cunningham as a rusher. He seems to be more the rover type, running to put out fires or shooting gaps to disrupt. He would be good at sniffing out screens or WR/Flanker screens, etc. Seems too small to take on big blockers, but then, that's the only dig on Foster too.

    (I don't know why Ragland is highlighted here, watch the play Foster makes. Shed that fullback like a punk.)

    he's SLIGHTLY undersized but that explosion makes it real hard to keep him blocked

    I agree they won't both be drafted top 10. I'm evaluating from a pure players perspective. I thought Derrick Henry was a top 25 player in last years draft. I knew he wouldn't get drafted in the first round.

    I'm also not done evaluating. I've just begun. Highly likely Cunningham will slide outside my top 10. 15-20 most likely. But Foster will most likely stay in my top 10

    My current top 5:
    1. Myles Garrett
    2. Jonathan Allen
    3. Jamal Adams
    4. Malik McDowell
    5. Reuben Foster

    I'll probably put Fournette in my top 5. I haven't evaluated QBs yet. There's a chance Mitch Trubisky makes my top 5-10 if his game tape impresses.

    Yeah, he uses his hands well to keep the defender off of him, but the complaint was about pass rushing, that he was not very good in that one area. I can live with that. Just freaking get Allen too and we are set.
