early draft prospects

CMicks3110 : 12/31/2018 11:48 am
i think there have been a few threads on this, but I'll chime in too.

Just looking through some of the prospects this morning, and I'll say this, thank god we didn't drop below 6.

Basically I see 6 elite players from my (very very early) analysis

1. Nick Bosa - Edge
2. Ed Oliver D-Line
3. Quinen Williams - D-Line
4. Devin White - Linebacker
5. Greedy Williams - Corner
6. Josh Allen - Edge

If I were to guess, based on the needs of the teams above us, I think there is no way Josh Allen gets past the Jets; I can see the Cards trading down since they don't have tremendous needs on Defense, but they probably won't get the same value, so I'm going to peg them to still get Bosa; Bucs just drafted Vea last year and have McCoy so they could pass on one of the d-lineman, probably in favor of Greedy; Oakland is the Wildcard, who knows where they go; I hope they grab Haskins, but who knows.

I think we end up choosing between Oliver, Quinnen Williams, and Devin White; I'd be happy with any of the three, but I have my eyes set on Oliver if that is at all possible. The kid looks like an absolute monster. Bigger Aaron Donald and could wreak havoc from a 3-4 end position similar to JJ Watt. I love Oliver.
I'd take any one of those six

And if Haskins jumps up in there or someone like a Jonah Williams, it'll mean we'd have 2-3 of those defenders available. Considering D is our biggest need IMO, I like how this shapes up.

I'm still thinking Clelin Ferrell

And his teammate, Christian Wilkins, might find his way onto this list.
I like those 6 as well

and throw in the top tackle coming out.
Not a fan of Haskins he has all day to throw the ball from the tape I saw of him that won't happen in the NFL and especially with the Giants OL. 2020 a stronger QB year. I would wait a year on the QB.
Wouldn’t take Greedy at 6

Too high.
out of that group  
bc4life : 12/31/2018 1:07 pm : link
Quinnen Williams. Shurmur made an intetesting aside re: Alabama DL players being unblockable.
Id take Haskins  
giantstock : 12/31/2018 1:07 pm : link
Though it depends who drops. I doubt qWill makes it to us. Nor Allen and ofc Bosa wont.

some mocks have him and OLiver going before # 5.

Jawaan Taylor? Some sites have him as best OL in Round 1
I'll be watching the Bama' / Clemson game like a hawk

Better than 50% chance our first round pick comes out of the trenches in that game. Williams (pick one from Alabama), Ferrell and maybe even Wilkins have legit shots to be the guys. I like Josh Allen in our system a bit better, but wouldn't be unhappy with any of the 4 mentioned.
Wilkins is definitely in the Giants mold.

Extremely Smart, from Springfield MA (Gettleman went to school there) and a team leader.
Build the lines

pretty safe bet it's DL or Edge rusher - lot of draftniks think OL might be a reach at 6
This will change  
mittenedman : 12/31/2018 1:28 pm : link
as the process plays out.

I'm telling you right now - keep an eye on Lousake Polite (Florida). Pure speed rusher we haven't had since Osi. If he's the real deal I see no problem with him at #6.

This is a 34 - you gotta have great OLBs.
*Sorry  
mittenedman : 12/31/2018 1:29 pm : link
Jackai Polite. Confusing him with the old Fullback.
I'm asuming you  
bc4life : 12/31/2018 1:31 pm : link
meant Jachai Polite
Quinnen Williams  
Allen in CNJ : 12/31/2018 1:47 pm : link
would be a perfect fit for us...

But I wouldn't mind seeing us draft Rashan Gary (#7 may be a bit high though) or one of the O-tackles (Little or Williams)

Have who going before 5? Haskins?
I don't think Devin White will be on that list when all is said and  
barens : 12/31/2018 3:17 pm : link
done, but Haskins if he decides to make himself eligible will, and Rashan Gary I suspect will be a top 5 pick without question.
Take the best DT, RB's running up the middle looked like they  
SterlingArcher : 12/31/2018 3:39 pm : link
shot out of a cannon. Then the best olineman available.
Haskins?  
Nomad Crow on the Madison : 12/31/2018 3:49 pm : link
I wouldn't touch him before the third round.
QW  
Dave in PA : 12/31/2018 3:51 pm : link
Or Ed Oliver would be very exciting picks at 6. I doubt either is available on draft day, but at least there’s a chance.
How high  
Jay in Toronto : 12/31/2018 4:32 pm : link
might Jonah Williams go?

I also think there may be 5 DLs picked ahead of us. :(
