gersh : 9/18/2023 7:57 am
There’s been a lot of complaining about Thibs and Neal. I’m not saying it’s not justified, but here’s your chance.

Do-over right now. Who are you taking?
Obviously the top 4 are not options.

5. New York Giants – Kayvon Thibodeaux, DE, Oregon

6. Carolina Panthers – Ikem Ekwonu, OT, NC State

7. New York Giants – Evan Neal, OT, Alabama

8. Atlanta Falcons – Drake London, WR, USC

9. Seattle Seahawks – Charles Cross, OT, Mississippi State

10. New York Jets – Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State

11. New Orleans Saints – Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State

12. Detroit Lions – Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama

13. Philadelphia Eagles – Jordan Davis, DT, Georgia

14. Baltimore Ravens – Kyle Hamilton, S, Notre Dame

15. Houston Texans – Kenyon Green, G, Texas A&M

16. Washington Commanders – Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State

17. Los Angeles Chargers – Zion Johnson, G, Boston College

Garrett Wilson at 5

At the time I would have picked Neal and Wilson.

In a re-do, the least worst OT and Wilson. Haven't really watched the other OTs.
At the time I wanted KT and Wilson

and im still OK with that. Reading my draft notes from back then, my hope at the time would be that we could grab a RT (a RIGHT tackle is the key here) in round 2 or 3 with the strong desire being that the guy from Washington State (Lucas) would be there. Why? I thought he was the best Right Tackle in that draft. He was not versatile so he wasnt a first rounder, but as far as strictly playing RT went, he was the guy I wanted.
Lucas is on IR with a “sore right knee”

That kept him out of half the season his rookie year

The point of the thread is even with 20/20 hindsight, it’s not so clear a year later.

And, it’s not unreasonable to think that both picks may still turn out to be very good.
