Agreed on dion. Werner is coveted because he has the ability to round the corner well. Or at least the upside to do it really well at the next level. Otherwise. Meh.
Jordan got my stamp of approval the second Jason Taylor said he reminded him a lot of himself in college.
He even said Jordan might be further along than he was.
Taylor wouldn't just loosely compare a player to himself unless he really meant it.
Picks I could also live with: Warmack, Austin, Rhodes
Pick that would make me puke: Milliner (unbelievably overrated)
I'm fully confident in Ruston's drafting abilities. So i'll be ok with whoever he takes (although i have a man crush for Warmack's belly)...in rounds 2-7.
I hated the Kendall Wright pick last season - although he had a very productive 1st year and I've grown to like him.
It's about time we landed a "superstar" player - CJ was our last one and that was a while ago. Hopefully we can find the diamond in the rough to put us over the top.
Since we pick #10, here's my Top 10 big board:
1. Dion Jordan
2. Star Lotulelei
3. Ezekiel Ansah
4. Shariff Floyd
5. Dee Milliner
6. Sheldon Richardson
7. Chance Warmack
8. Jonathan Cooper
9. Xavier Rhodes
10. Barkevious Mingo
I think the Titans go with CB Dee Milliner in the first round
mingo or rhodes
NFL Network's Michelle Beisner reports the Cardinals have Chance Warmack lower on their draft board than Jonathan Cooper.
The buzz on Warmack over the past 48 hours has been remarkably quiet, while Cooper is clearly a hot name. The Cardinals really want Oklahoma LT Lane Johnson, Beisner reported, but will stick with a best-available strategy if Johnson goes in the top five, as expected. Warmack will not be the BPA at No. 7 overall.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Lions "love" North Carolina OG Jonathan Cooper.
We can't predict the draft -- no one can -- and shocking picks happen every year. But Detroit selecting Cooper in the top five would be truly jaw dropping. Per Rapoport, the Lions love Cooper's potential as either a guard or center with second-level movement skills, blocking downfield in front of Reggie Bush. What has become clear is Cooper will be drafted ahead of Chance Warmack, and we tend to suspect it won't be particularly close.
