Every year a few guys out of the picture early emerge as first rounders by the end of the process. Who do you see emerging that way?

A few surprise names I've heard recently:
Obi Melifonwu
Taylor Moton
Curtis Samuel
Patrick Mahomes
Adam Shaheen
Fabian Moreau
Justin Evans

Eddie Jackson. Some edge guys who run fast might make their way up, too (Derek Rivers, etc.)

Tim Williams

I'm hearing way too much hate on the guy some talking about how he's not going to be picked until the 3rd at the earliest. I agree there are flaws, no doubt but Williams has talent worth a 1st and I think there is a team that sees that.

Jaleel Johnson
Tanoh Kpassagnon
three "TEs" (Howard, Njoku, Engram)
On phone so I'll probably butcher his name Akhelio Witherspoon CB Colorado

Very close. Ahkello.

There does seem to be buzz on Shaheen now that media guys are seeing his film. If he has a strong workout at the Combine, I could see him jumping to Round 1.

Haason Reddick is another that could make the first round that I forgot to include.

If he does what I expect at the Combine, I think it would be a bigger surprise if he doesn't go in the first round.

Meli, Samuel, Mahomes, and Evans wouldn't surprise me.

Jaleel Johnson, Montravius Adams, Jordan Willis, Daeshon Hall

I think a team at the back end of the 1st could take Antonio Garcia.

I seriously don't get the Justin Evans love. Can't tackle and is suspect in coverage. Is he expected to blow up the combine or something?

He's a big-time combine guy. But like you eluded to - he's a wild mess. I don't mind those guys at linebacker. But I don't like them in the back end.

Mahomes going in the 1st wouldn't be a surprise at all.

In fact after the Combine, you'll start hearing about him as a top 15 pick which is where I expect him to go (Cleveland at #12 is the hot rumor right now)

Mahomes to Zona at 13. Book it.

Would be a good fit for sure. I'd like that much more than if he went to the Browns. Laughing
