    Every year a top guy seems to drop in the first. Who is it this year?:cool:

    If you did believe the hype it's Rashan Gary. I never believed in the top 10 hype but he could easily fall to round 2. Production does not match the athleticism.

    Ferrell could fall.

    Interesting to see how Sweat heart condition could affect him. If he fell to #20 would Steelers really pass?

    I have no idea how QB situation plays out. Do 4 guys go in Top 17? Or just 1?

    Does any CB go in the Top 19? Or would we have the pick of the litter?

    Conversely, as I have been saying all along, I won't be surprised if Ed Oliver goes Top 4. People have been sleeping on him.

    I don't see ferrell falling. Quite the opposite. Too many 4-3 teams he could fit with as a DE. I'd like to see burns drop to say... 20.:smiley1::cool:

    I think Greedy Williams falls he had a poor combine, and there is questions about his work ethic.

    I can see him maybe falling into the 2nd.

    Devin White and Devin Bush.

    White is still top 15. I seriously doubt he is going top 5. Highest is ten for him. Bush could make it to 20. 17 would be his tipping point; a trade by Pittsburgh no less.

    Off topic; Byron Murphy is going far higher than others are giving him credit for.

    I know you love you some Ed Oliver. How about a poor mans version? I also like Daniel Wise as third day picks....
    Watching Broughton two years ago was maddening but illuminating. At nearly 290 pounds, he spent the majority of his time the edge. Strange coaching choice. While he was awkwardly out of position, Broughton flashed impressive bend around the corner.

    In 2018, in which he predominantly played inside where he belonged, Broughton exploded for 18.5 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks. No, his hand work isn't Aaron Donaldian. His first step is as dynamic as any defensive tackle in this class not named Ed Oliver, and his hips are extremely fluid, which allows him get to the ball even when he has to change directions.

    Here are his pro day figures (he wasn't invited to the combine):

    Missed this a few weeks ago: #DraftCrush of mine, Cincinnati DT Cortez Broughton, had the following Pro Day effort (rank at DT position at '19 combine)

    40YD: 5.01-5.05 (T4th-T8th)
    Vert: 33.5 (3rd)
    Broad: 113 (6th)
    3Cone: 7.65 (6th)
    ShortSh: 4.57 (8th)

    Running a 4.3 at the combine isn't poor :shrug:, he didn't do some of the other drills.

    I totally agree. His college stats and film show a one trick pony. Lousy route runner. A combine workout warrior.

    I am on the Greedy Williams fall off also. You can't teach toughness. He apparently wants none of it.
    I hope the Steelers don't take him or a player like him that may shy away from contact.
    Football is violent game played by violent people.

    I would rather have Greedy over Ya Sin, Greedy is the best man coverage CB in the draft.

    I will say this, if Christian Wilkins Falls to 20 and we don't take him that's going to hurt me a little bit. Lol
