Jeramiah has 5 OTs in his current top 50, so...

..that follows. Here's my struggle at this time of year. If somebody can tell me where Benjamin Solak built his credentials for grading draft prospects I would appreciate it, because I don't see anything in a quick Google search that tells me I should race to follow him or bookmark the site, etc.
This article really didnít reveal much except that everyone still

Yeah, he's a college kid.

evident as we get closer that OL will be the day 2 target.
Not sold on any QB, although a few may be worth a shot after Rd 1

So I'd be really tempted to go OL in Rd 1 and take the strength (in an are of need), and if a top 5 QB is still there at #2 taken him then

I should have known better...sorry about that.
Some opinions are more knowledgable than others.

He has a BA from the U of Chicago, great school. Graduated 2019? I guess he IS GOING TO HAVE A BA from U of Chicago this May or June...

He doesn't even list playing HS football on his extremely thin resume, which features "a week of Missionary work in Mexico" on what appears to be Spring Break.

He's a basement blogger basically bearing a bereft backround in football at ANY level. KINDA doubt he played HS football, and could probably proove it checking records from East Stroudsburg PA where he grew up.

He's just like a typical under 21 BBIer with one minor distinction.

He's an Eagles fan.

I doubt any crew member from "The Draft Network" has a single credential among them.

But I agree there is a lot of online talent this year. Itís just not at the top of the draft. But end of 1st - 3rd round should yield some very good players.
