Discussion in 'The Bill Nunn Draft Room' started by gpguy, Mar 3, 2016.
Sorry, didn't see this until after I made the selection for the Steelers West
Some guys I like are:
Jaydon Mickens WR Washington
Josh Ferguson RB Ill
Travis Feeney OLB Washington
Victor Ochi OLB Stoney Brook
Dadi Nicolas OLB Vir. Tech
I stop marking off guys so if any of these guys have been pick I am sorry
Time for an offensive pick, no way they go 5 rounds all on defense.
Thinking about throwing my hat in the ring for David Morgan, lunch pail TE in the mold of Heath. 6'4" 262 pounds, blocking machine, great hands and beast, cranked out 29 reps on the bench press. His one caveat, slow but so what, just won't be asking him to run down the seam but When UTSA needed a first down, Morgan was the man.
We just picked up Green and they have James (who is still unproven although I like what i have seen so far) and Spaeth who is done, be gone soon. I think Morgan would be a good addition to the TE squad and future starter. Think he is the sleeper pick of this TE class and great value here.
Just waiting to see if anyone produces any intriguing WR names.
2 WR names are Tajae Sharpe from UMASS and Chris Brown out of Notre Dame.
I'm going to vote for Sharpe. 6'2 190 lbs. One of the best route runners in the draft. Coached by Mark Whipple, who has a little familiarity with Ben.
What about Jaydon Mickens?
Mickens is a sleeper receiver who some teams are interested in for a late-round pick. He had 58 receptions for 692 yards and two touchdowns in 2015. As a junior (60-617-4) and sophomore (65-688-5), Mickens was able to contribute for Washington.
Or Josh Ferguson:
At the East-West Shrine, Ferguson was the best running back in St. Petersburg. He used his speed to rip off nice runs and showed excellent cutting ability to be elusive in the open field.
Ferguson is a fast, athletic back who has made a favorable impression on NFL evaluators. He was banged up with a shoulder injury in 2015 and missed a number of games, but still averaged 5.5 yards per carry for 708 yards and three touchdowns. The senior also had 38 receptions for 280 yards and two scores.
Ferguson showed real receiving skills when he hauled in 50 passes as a junior and a sophomore. Sources like his ability to contribute to the passing game and special teams. At the combine, Ferguson ran fast and looked in the receiving drills.
I vote Harlan Miller....... Wait someone already took that slow skinny FCS CB......
Well there goes my hopes and dreams.
(sorry NYsteel couldn't resist)
No it's not realistic to take 5 straight rounds of defense but I'm still voting that way
Unless we pick up J. Jones's 5th year option we only have Chickillo and Dupree on the roster for the future (possibly Moats for 1 more year as well)
Victor Ochi OLB
Some good suggestions here, would love to check them all out but, no time. Going to stick with my boy, I vote:
David Morgan II, TE, UTSA
What about an offensive lineman?
Roy Robertson-Harris, OLB, Texas-El Paso
Think he offers the most upside of the edge guys left, and maybe overall.
If a tie-breaker is needed, my second place vote goes for Tajae Sharpe, WR, UMASS.
Put me down for Tejae Sharpe, WR, Umass
I like to stir the waters, so my vote is going to a qb so we can move on from the Landry Jones fiasco.....
Put me down for Cody kessler
WR Sharpe scares me just because of hand size - under 8". I'll vote for RB D.J. Foster Ariz State. RB/WR combo.
After reading a little more on him my vote is here:
Tajaé Sharpe, WR, Massachusetts
What about Robby Anderson, WR Temple, 6'3" 4.36/40, seems like it's two rounds early for Sharp?
We've got 3-1/2 votes for Sharpe and one vote each for several others. Shall we call it??
Call it, draft is here
