Hans has been doing such a great job on the site i probably need to go on permanent hiatus. He has gotten more followers and likes than i could even dream of. Anyway we are having a little contest on the NFL first round. I have not looked at his picks. May the best couch coach win,
1 Arizona – Kyler Murray QB OU – Kliff Kingsbury has been chasing Murray for years, finally catches him.
2 San Fran – Nick Bosa DLine Ohio St- no one saw SF picking here this time last year. Bosa will shore up defense
3 NY Jets – Josh Allen DE Kentucky – Jets need D help. They will be picking here again next year.
4 Oakland – Quinnen Williams DT Bama – pains me that Oak is here. Gruden better listen to Mayock. We have 3 first rounders. Better make them count.
5 Tampa – Devin White LB LSU – Might be early for a linebacker, but he is best player available.
6 NY Giants – Christian Wilkins DT Clemson – Gmen need to draft a QB to replace Eli, maybe a trade for one.
7 Jacksonville – Jawaan Taylor OT Florida – Jax needs Oline help to protect Foles. Maybe this is the guy.
8 Detroit Lions – TJ Hackenson TE Iowa – the Lions window with Stafford is closing, lets be honest. its the Lions. the window was never open.
9 Buffalo – Andre Dillard OT Wash St. Bills need Oline help. We know Dillard can pass block being in the mad scientist Mike Leach’s offense.
10 Denver – Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio St. Elway was a great QB, but he is not a great evaluator. We will see this again.
11 Cincinnati – Cody Ford OL OU. Ford can play anywhere along the line. This is a rare good pick for the Bungles.
12 Green Bay – Jonah Williams OL Bama. Packers need help at Oline.. Williams is a lot like Ford above, but the better tackle prospect.
13 Miami – Ed Oliver DT Houston. Oliver is a good player with a bit of a chip on his shoulder. Good pick for the fish.
14 Atlanta – Montez Sweat DE – Miss St. Falcons pick up a destructive force on the edge
15 Washington – Daniel Jones QB Duke. The slurs pick up a qb. Hopefully Alex Smith recovers but it is unlikely.
16 Carolina – Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson. Panthers need a lot of things. Pressure up front would help get off the field earlier.
17 NY Giants – Byron Murphy CB Wash. Gmen add to their defense with a good corner.
18 Minnesota – Greg Little OT Miss. This is a need pick. Little falls to them and fills that need.
19 Tennessee – Brian Burns DE FSU. This is a huge need pick for the Titans.
20 Pittsburgh – Rock Ya-Sin CB Temple. Stillers get defensive help early, will dig some receiver off the pile later and make him a hall of famer.
21 Seattle – Rashan Gary DE Michigan. Gary is a steal here at this pick
22 Baltimore – Devin Bush LB Michigan. Ravens address a need with the best player available.
23 Houston – Greedy Williams CB LSU. Toxins with an absolute steal here.
24 Oakland – Irv Smith Jr TE Bama. Need targets for Derek Carr, if he is still the QB when the season starts.
25 Philadelphia – Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson. Should help the iggles stop the run.
26 Indianapolis – DK Metcalf WR Miss. Andrew Luck gets another target.
27 Oakland – Josh Jacobs RB Bama. Gruden making this pick. We need so much help.
28 Chargers – Drew Lock QB Mizzou. I hope this guy goes to the raiders, but here is Rivers understudy giftwrapped by gruden.
29 Seattle – Jerry Tillery DT Notre Shame. I dont see the seahags making this pick, but they could double down on defense.
30 Green Bay – Marquise Brown WR OU. Packers get a deep threat to help stretch the field.
31 Rams – Garrett Bradbury C NC State. Immediate upgrade to interior line.
32 New England – AJ Brown Miss. Patriots will trade out of this pick, but if they stay here might as well get Tawmy some help.
That was a bold move for your Steelers to trade up in the first round. . In typical Steelers style, they selected an imposing linebacker. Are they trying to find new ways to defense Baker Mayfield?
