BBI Mock Draft – DISCUSSION Thread

Matt G : 3/22/2020 7:25 pm
We will use this as a discussion thread to keep the picks thread uncluttered. These threads will be used for the duration of the draft.

Once a team is on the clock, they will have two hours to make a selection. If a team goes on the clock after 4pm, their two-hour window will roll over to the next day. For example, if you go on the clock at 4:30pm, you will have until 9:30 am to make a selection. Picks may be made between 6pm and 9am if GMs are online and following the draft thread. The time limit only applies during the 9am to 6pm timeframe. If the two hour time limit expires, I will make a pick using any list that the GM for the team has sent me in advance (send lists to the email address in my profile) or in the absence of a list, I will use the GBN Big Board with a little discretion so as not make an obvious dumb pick (i.e. Kansas City won’t be taking a QB in the 1st round this year). If a GM misses two consecutive picks without providing a prospect list or making some form of contact with me (email or posting on the draft thread) the spot will be reassigned to one of the BBIers who have expressed an interest to fill the vacancy.

Please utilize the BBI Mock Draft Spreadsheet . The spreadsheet contains the draft order (RD1-6) by team and GM with a fairly comprehensive list of prospects based on the GBN Big Board (as well as several other prospects that did not make the GBN Big Board). I will try to keep the spreadsheet and thread updated as often as possible… Good luck!

From a conversation standpoint, what mid-round prospects  
Lionhart28 : 4/2/2020 1:32 pm : link
do you guys love for the Giants? This group probably studies the draft class more closely than BBI in general so I am curious for your thoughts.

If we pass on Simmons, a guy like Davis-Gaither in the 4th or 5th would make a lot of sense.

I know we all like the big-bodied receivers. Guys like Pittman, Claypool, DPJ would look great in blue.

I'd also like to see another 2-way TE added to the roster, like Trautman.

With one of our 7ths, (despite adding Dion Lewis) one of those speedy backs who can help in the return game would make sense. Though I am hesitant to mention names to give transparency into my draft board ;)

I could discuss a player I took in Davion Taylor as someone if we are looking for a Day 3 LB/S type. I am also partial to Van Jefferson at WR. Charlotte's Alex Highsmith is another player in the Round 4-5 area that I would also consider.
Yeah I think Highsmith would make a lot of sense  
Lionhart28 : 4/2/2020 2:00 pm : link
I don't know anything about Taylor so I intend to look into him a little more.

I really liked what I read about my 3rd Round pick, Harrison Bryant, TE. Sounds like a solid guy and would be a good addition to the Giants.
Based on where they went and need  
NoGainDayne : 4/2/2020 2:42 pm : link
in the 3rd I would love to see them snag Robert Hunt or Jordan Brooks.

In the 4th I really like the guy I snagged Betiku, think his potential to be a legit NFL pass rusher in the 4th round is a great risk reward. Also other guys in the 4th Troy Dye, Tyler Johnson or Gabriel Davis. The WR talent at the top of the 2nd is undeniable. But for me it's hard to argue that we don't absolutely need to go OL / Defensive playmaker with our 1/2 picks to have a chance to compete this year. Maybe even T/T because as of now we don't have a RT and rolling the dice and depending on Solder / Fleming for one of the spots seems really unwise, especially if we want to see accurately if DJ is the answer at QB.

Looking at the end of the 3rd I don't see the value at WR. I'm in the Simmons or Okudah camp which I think means we NEED to go OT in the 2nd and probably 3rd too. But if we go OT in the first would love to see us snag Jordan Brooks.

This sucks. We have done so well to avoid autopicks.

Next in line is Jake Hanson, OL. Makes sense to assign him to the skins.

Not happy.
Betiku is still super raw  
Lionhart28 : 4/2/2020 2:47 pm : link
Interesting kid. Lavar basically adopted him and he lived with Lavar for a while in high school, I think they had some kind of falling out though so he ended up on the West Coast. I think he originally committed to UCLA as a 5 star player. Obviously didn't pan out there and transferred to Illinois where he started out the season red hot and kind of disappeared. He's the type of guy I'd like to get on the practice squad as he's only scratched the surface of his athletic ability.

The Raiders complete NFL draft...  
Amtoft : 4/2/2020 4:12 pm : link
QB Justin Herbert - Oregon
WR Justin Jefferson - LSU
CB Noah Igbinoghene - Auburn
RB Cam Akers - FSU
CB Josiah Scott - Michigan State
S J.R. Reed - Georgia
CB/S L'Jarius Sneed - Louisiana Tech

The Raiders have actually done a great job building a team. I really wanted to add a WR or two, another RB, and then load up on DBs where they need the most help. Igbinoghene is a little raw, but so I think can be a good starter in this league. Josiah Scott is one of my favorite CBs, but probably isn't big enough to be on the outside. I think he will be a very good Nickel. Reed is a pure all american safety and great value in the 4th probably because of his age. Sneed is a gamble on his size, speed, and play making ability. We will start him at CB, but he should default back to Safety worst case.

So a little Defense back heavy, but the Raiders only true need is DB. So we took a little extra scoop.

Now that you are done you can comment on the PAC-12 players other teams select! I have taken a few and there are some others on my board who might receive consideration if we go 7 Rounds and/or as UDFA's if that is the path we take.

You have always done well dipping into the Pac-12 every year. Michael Pittman is one of my favorite round 2 WRs. Great size and productive. He was great this year especially when you consider him going through 3 QBs. That isn't just playing with 3 QBs, but he practiced a ton with Daniels who got hurt early. Then you have Leki Fotu who is a beast. The guy is huge and strong, but also surprisingly quick for his size. The only problem I end up having with Utah players is their coaches are good. They always get the most out of their players so you question if they are peaked out.

Saying that my nephew is a stud rugby player. He was actually offered by the #2 team in the nation (Life College), but choose to sign with SBU instead because he liked the education and how the coaches would use him better. So long story short... I now know more about Rugby then I thought I ever would and Fotu is also a stud Rugby player!
Gonna be driving for a bit

Will post Mike's pick ASAP
Looking back at this draft for the Browns  
Lionhart28 : 4/2/2020 5:35 pm : link
1.10 Austin Jackson, T - USC
2.41 Antoine Winfield Jr., S - Minnesota
3.74 Chase Claypool, WR - Notre Dame
3.97 Shane Lemieux, G - Oregon
4.115 Logan Wilson, LB - Wyoming


LT: The Browns literally don't have a LT on the roster right now (Chris Hubbard, who was awful at RT is listed as the only player on Ourlads)so there was no avoiding the position. Since we can't trade, I thought it was necessary to grab one at 10. I knew Austin Jackson would be considered a reach, but I am very high on him and he was the top LT on the board. As it turned out, the only LTs left at 41 were Lucas Niang, Prince Tega Wanogho and some real developmental guys. We needed a day one starter, so I'm glad a took him there. We would have been making July trades had we not gotten Jackson or Jones at 10.

I (believe) I got better value out of the rest of my picks (so far) but I would have liked to address DL sooner. Vernon has a year left on his deal and a 15M cap hit. Ogunjobi is up after this year and Richardson only has 1 more year and will be 31.

S: We have 2 1-year deals for vets Andrew Sendejo and Karl Joseph, so adding some depth and talent there was paramount. Really glad to have added a playmaker like Winfield here.

LB: Mack Wilson is a good young player at WLB and Sione Takitaki has some upside but with BJ Goodson and Tae Davis as backups, we need some depth at SLB and MLB with the losses of Schobert and Kirksey. Logan Wilson should be able to play day one at SLB or inside and is a sneaky athletic tackling machine.

RG: Bitonio is one of the best in the game at LG and JC Tretter is very good at center. The Browns signed Jack Conklin for big money to play RT so with the selection of Austin Jackson, RG is the only other spot that needed to be addressed along the line. Only Wyatt Teller is there after being acquired from Buffalo mid-season. Shane Lemieux should compete for that starting spot day 1 and be able to backup several spots.

WR: OBJ and Landry are excellent but as always there are rumors of OBJ being unhappy and trade bait. Behind them are the impressive crew of KhaDarel Hodge, Taywan Taylor, J'Mon Moore and Damion Ratley. Even if OBJ is happy and healthy they needed to add depth and talent here. Chase Claypool was the last WR available in my second tier and is a physical phenom coming in at 6'4" 238 and running 4.42 at the combine. More importantly, he's a damn good football player and brings a skillset that isn't currently on the roster at the position.

Eagles pick is in...  
Chris in Philly : 4/2/2020 6:03 pm : link
We stay in our back yard and pick up a CB prospect from Temple that can slide around and fit well in Schwartz's defense. The defensive backfield was a weakness and we have shored it up significantly. This kid adds to the versatility we are building in the back 7.
Saints pick is in  
Saos1n : 4/2/2020 6:07 pm : link
Wanted to build on oline depth. Just have a huge deal to Peat, with Warford coming up soon.

Selected Tyre Phillips our of Mississippi State. Give him some time, in the Saints program and groom him to take over soon.
I really like Reggie Robinson II's speed for his size  
Boatie Warrant : 4/2/2020 6:35 pm : link
A good CB with length and strength. I think he will fit right in on the Texans. Technique needs some work but thats why he is still around in the 5th.
Thanks Matt!  
Mike in NY : 4/2/2020 6:59 pm : link
Ravens add Javaris Davis. We have Humphrey and Peters on the outside, but I think Davis could be a great nickle DB as Jimmy Smith is getting old. Looking forward to Round 7 and/or UDFA as I lack a 6th Round pick
Pats select WR Trishton Jackson  
Torrag : 4/2/2020 7:41 pm : link
Seriously to get a prospect with the traits and AA like this at #172 speaks to the WR depth in this class. I've had my eye on him for a while watching guys come off the board. I think he could be this years Darius Slayton. Who the Giants coincidentally drafted #171 overall.
I'm here for the Dolphins at 173  
Optimus-NY : 4/2/2020 9:08 pm : link
Gonna make a decision soon.
Pick is in for the Fish at 173  
Optimus-NY : 4/2/2020 10:17 pm : link
Nick Coe is a versatile guy in the front 7. Flores is gonna want guys who are multiple. Coe has a lot of potential. Man has lengthy arms and can be coached up. I've got about 4 other players I was strongly considering here, but Coe won out. I hope one of those guys is there for me at pick 185 in the 6th round. Let's see if it works out.

P.S. Let's do a 7th round: I have 3 picks then!!! haha!
I agree on the 7th round  
Saos1n : 4/2/2020 10:32 pm : link
