This year's draft, I want . . .
Sat Jan 04, 2020 2:54 pm
  • I don't get into players, as I don't know nearly enough, but from a position and round perspective, I'd like to see:

    First three picks be 2 DL and 1 OL. The DL should be one interior and one end (and that end should be a speed rusher, not an inside/outside guy). The OL should be a tackle, as there seems to be sufficient interior depth.

    The middle rounds need to have a TE and some DB depth (a bit indifferent on CB or Safety).

    In the late rounds, I'd like to see them draft a backup QB and a kicker (depending a bit on Myers contract).

    Other available picks should try to stock OL, LB, and DL, in that order or importance.

  • We need DT, DE, OLB, CB, and Safety. OL only if there isn't a better defensive player available.

  • Focus on defense in Free Agency since there is some talent available at positions of need and go into the draft looking to upgrade O-Line and add another receiver early. A lot of offensive talent there that would be a mistake to pass on. With the cap room we are slated to have (even with resigning Clowney/Reed), there are a number of options.

  • Would like to see us get this guy and groom and get him to a NFL body.

    At 6’4, 220 pounds, Hamsah Nasirildeen is Florida State’s version of Isaiah Simmons as a big, long, linebacker-safety hybrid on the defensive side of the ball. Simmons gets a lot more hype because of his athleticism and production, but when you look strictly at the traits, there shouldn’t be a huge gap between him and Hamsah Nasirildeen. There is a play against Boston College on Nasirildeen’s tape where he came all the way across the opposite side of the field to chase down and intercept an attempted crossing route, showing off his unique range that is made by those huge, long strides. With his combination of length, speed, and a natural nose for the ball, Nasirildeen possesses all of the tools as a raw, chess-piece defender. Like Simmons, Florida State is experimenting with him at both safety and linebacker, as he primarily played a box safety role for the Seminoles in 2018. He has the stopping power of a linebacker, but the true cover skills, specifically in Man, of a nickel starter. Nasirildeen’s potential is unlimited, but he needs to speed the game up in his head before taking the next step.

    Florida State S Hamsah Nasirildeen is a brick wall. Such an explosive and vicious hitter. Going to have many fans.

    Agreed. He was listed at 216lbs, but if he can get in the 225-230 range without losing much speed, he will be an enforcer somewhere in the league. Looking at him, that seems easy in an NFL strength and conditioning program.

    Every site I read says he can add upper body mass and maintain what he has, he is still growing into his body and filling out from the comments, 230 should be easy for him to get to in a weight and conditioning program.

  • I’m hoping we end up with Antonio Gibson from Memphis, listed as a wr/rb/kr but he’s also 6’3 220 and extremely explosive. 700+ yards receiving at 19.5 yards a catch, 300 plus rushing at 11 ypc and 28 yards per kick return. Would just add something to the offense we seem to lack

    Why do you think not OL? Tackle would seem to be a position of weakness, at least minimal depth.

    This team's defense is horrible across the board. OL depth is an issue, but not as big as fixing all the holes in our swiss cheese defense.

  • We need our LT of he future:

    Isaiah Wilson (T, Georgia)
    Wilson was one of the first players I properly studied this year and was wowed by his potential. I’m not sure why he’s not being talked about as a high first round pick, considering how much people are rushing to hype up Jedrick Wills and Mekhi Becton.

    He’s 6-7 and 340lbs but carries the size superbly. He’s not carrying any bad weight and cuts an intimidating presence on the right side.

    When he locks his arms into position defenders can’t disengage. There’s evidence of effective combo-blocks and he’ll drive defenders back in the running game. There are occasions where he gets his drop wrong and loses balance and leverage. He drops too deep against speed and gives faster rushers an opportunity to attack from within the pocket, eliminating space and freedom for the quarterback. He needs to play more inside-out. That said, he has massive potential and I think teams will love him.

    Georgia’s O-line performance in 2019 was incredible. Andrew Thomas is a sure-fire top-10 pick. I don’t think Wilson will be too far behind and he declared as a redshirt sophomore which suggests he received a very good review from the draft committee. He’s being severely underrated.

    Superb use of #27 overall. One of a small handful of players I'd strongly endorse here.

  • Isaiah Simmons!
    https://www.pff.com/news/college-football-clemsons-isaiah-simmons-is-the-perfect-modern-day-linebacker


    no one has displayed a more versatile skillset than Clemson’s Isaiah Simmons. Standing 6-foot-4, 230 pounds, Simmons might as well have been created in a lab to play defense in today’s NFL. He can go from rushing off the edge to off-ball to the slot and deep safety seamlessly from play to play. He is of the new Derwin James/Jamal Adams hybrid defender mold, only in a larger package.
