Takeaway from the Scouting Combine: He wonít go No. 1, but at least a few teams I spoke with have #NotreDame G Quenton Nelson as their top overall player. Countless scouts cracked up discussing his film and how he just buried guys over and over. & #9904;& #65039;

im not sure id take him at 2. However, games are won and lost in the trenches. If we don't want one of the QB's(highly doubtful), I'd be on board with trading back to take this kid.

No having the 2nd pick you just hear about these guys more than usual...if Myles Garrett was in this draft he would be a dream #2 pick in an ocean on QBs with Qs

The OL functions as a unit, You need all 5 working together. This is why it makes no sense to take one that high and expect one guy to turn around an entire unit.

I'm not sure what the tackles have to do with anything. They'll probably be addressed in the same manner regardless of whether or not Nelson is drafted.
Nelson is my favorite player in the draft  
Rjanyg : 3/7/2018 10:37 am : link
I think Barkley is the best player followed by Nelson. I want one of these 2 guys. Great players that will slide right in and play.

I am holding onto hope Cleveland offers a crap load of draft picks to get the number 2 pick. Nelson at pick 4 would be my favorite scenario while also getting a couple of the 2nd round picks, a 4th and next years 1st rounder.

No doubt. It would have to be a part of a large overhaul.

Nelson may be a future HoF player  
Mike from Ohio : 3/7/2018 11:00 am : link
But the question is, even if he is advertised, does drafting him at #2 give you the same impact as a similar player at QB, RB or DE? Is the impact of a single All-Pro at guard over just an average guard the same as the impact at another position over an average player?

I'm not convinced I would take Nelson at #2 even if I knew he was the next Larry Allen.
Agree

Left Tackles are drafted this high if they're good enough, and they are linemen.

Linemen do alter the outcomes of games...by keeping the QB upright and opening holes for the RB. Two things that don't happen very often for this team currently, especially against teams like the Eagles. I'd much rather them take a QB or Barkley, or even Chubb...but if they draft Nelson I won't mind. If he keeps players like Fletcher Cox out of Eli's face - no one is really going to care where he was drafted.

Dominating the LOS is exactly how you change the outcome of games. I would try to get him after a trade down to a team willing to pay for their QB.

Nelson, +a 2, a 3, next years 1, for a 2 is also how you give yourself a chance to win consistently, not just one and done

I would argue that a G or any Olineman (who will never win an MVP) can alter a game. Those MVPs don't become MVPs without those Olineman

That's a better argument. However, the Browns drafted a HoF LT in Joe Thomas. How is that working out without a QB? ;)

Cleveland trades up to #2 to take Barkley and their QB. They have the assets for sure to make that move and get the best player and best QB in the draft.
If you want to rebuild your OL, like I think Gettlemen does,  
PatersonPlank : 3/7/2018 11:35 am : link
and you love Nelson at #6 or so, then why not take him? If he's the guy you love and think will be an All-Pro, what difference does it make? Picking a guy you don't like just because Nelson is a G makes no sense to me. You have one pick in his area, use it on the player you want.

Sure try to trade down, that would be ideal assuming you still get him, but its also risky. Also you can make the same "impact" argument about any player. For example what good would the top RB do behind an OL that can't block, or what good is a top QB if he's on the bench for 2 years, or if he plays he's behind an OL that can't block?
Take the guy you want.
I really think Cleveland

Is going to tale Barkley at 1 thinking they can get Josh Allen with 4. I think they probably have Darnald graded higher than Allan but are going to decide in the emd that Barkley and Allen beats out Darnald and amyone else

Robert Gallery was a Tackle. Nelson is a Guard.


Yes that's true, but the point, Gallery actually more
valuable as OT was one of the draft busts, people had
speculated he was good as Boselli. I'd rather take a
chance on a QB than a G, the payoff is much higher.

Nelson is not going to bring us the SB. He would help,
but at #2 you must go QB, you may never be there again,
I can acknowledge the Barkley support given the amount
of praise he's gotten, his performance at Combine and he
look the part.

P, PK, C, LS, S, G, all important BUT, not at #2.

And unless a few scouts want to give their opinion,
can anyone tell me with authority that Rosen isn't a better
player than Nelson. Or Barkley better than Darnold.
We all for the most must rely on the opinions of draft
guru's or stories from GM's & Coaches who are giving
disinformation.
Quenton Nelson is just an outright beast...  
M.S. : 3/7/2018 11:47 am : link
...doing so many things so well:

(1) Despite his (very) large size, he comes off the line at a perfect angle with tremendous leverage;
(2) He gets to the second level and nearly always finds his man;
(3) He generates so many seal blocks it's almost comical;
(4) His head is on a swivel and he's fantastic picking up stunts;
(5) He knows when to come off his block to help his teammates;
(6) No one slips his block once he latches on;
(7) 1-on-1 he drives defensive tackles off the line.

The only criticism I have is that he seems to stand a little too upright on pass blocking and can lose a step or two of real estate. But, then again, not too many ever get around him and I've never seen him run over. Never.

One last thing: he plays to the whistle much to the chagrin of defenders, many of whom find themselves planted because they felt the play was already over. Big fucking mistake. Quenton Nelson isn't out there to be a nice guy... this in one Mo-Fo.

If the Giants don't go QB at #2, I sure as hell won't complain to hear this beast announced as the newest Giant!

Get after the Bills - trade the #2 pick for their 2 1st rounders this year, their 2 2nd rounders this year, their 3rd rounder, and their 1st and 2nd next year.

That give the Giants 12 picks between this year and next in Rounds 1-3. This roster needs an overhaul, and this is the way to do it, and start course-correcting Reese's drafting failures these last few seasons.

On average, around 7 Hall of Famers enter the league. If you get any one of them in the first, your draft is off to a great start. But I'd rather have a Hall of Fame QB or pass rusher than a Hall of Fame guard.

Barkley is being projected at the level. So is Nelson. Who are the other five or so?

Joey in VA : 3/7/2018 4:01 pm : link
I would ordinarily agree but this draft isn't rife with playmakers and difference makers. Barkley, definitely, Rosen/Allen/Darnold...maybe? Chubb is being talked up at 2 now but is he really a game changing DL? If Barkley goes one, and I'm not in love with Rosen this has to be the pick. This pick CANNOT MISS, period. <---see I used a period after saying it, that really means I mean it! Nelson creates a domino effect on the OL and pretty much erases pressure in one gap and gives you someone to pull and lean on in the running game.

If we hadn't totally botched the picks with Flowers and Apple I'd be more inclined to agree but those are two top 10 picks, which should be day one starters and foundations for your team and neither is even assured of being here let alone starting and being a building block this year. We have too many holes, taking the safest and probably top two player in this draft has to be the move here if Barkley goes first.

That would be a good plan for the Browns but if you're Cousins do you sign in Cleveland? Minnesota is ready to compete for a SB now and they have the money to spend.. Just seems like the obvious choice.
