Take a look at Jerome Baker from tOSU, he has the skillset and athleticism to be a high pick. In the mold of Deion Jones

I was doing background on him yesterday. Will do.

If you're ever watching Portland State watch the left side of their OL, both will be in this draft. The LT is pretty young for his grade, still kind of learning the position. Right now he isnt draftable but he could improve into a day 3 pick. Good length, still needs to keep getting stronger though. The LG is older, transfer from Utah State, but he's a bully. Kinda similar to a Brian Winters in that regard, just loves getting guys to ground and pissing them off. He might take a few years but he could be a decent NFL player. Needs to fix his stance and his set a little.

Who are the top corners next year? Any freakish athletes in the secondary?


Denzel Ward, Ohio State's #1 CB next season. Co-started with Marshon Lattimore and Gareon Conley this season and put up almost identical coverage stats / grades. Fastest player on the team (low 4.3's); I think it's a pretty decent bet he continues the #1 OSU CB = 1st round draft pick trend of recent years.

Excited to see your take on some of the USC guys not named Darnold. Iman Marshall, Cam Smith, Porter Gustin, Rasheem Green, Ronald Jones, etc.

Only Tech guy who will be a senior and has a good chance as of now to get drafted (but then again he'll be a 24 year old rookie so maybe not) is WR Dylan Cantrell.

Great size at 6'3", jump ball specialist type. His biggest problem in his career so far has been speed, but this offseason has worked at it and is now apparently a 4.50 guy.

Reminds me of Brandon LaFell in the way he plays.

Him and Mahomes are best friends, went to HS together in Whitehouse, Texas and then obviously played together in college so maybe there's a Chiefs connection there.

Nic Shimonek and Derrick Willies could be drafted with big senior years, but as of now they haven't done much yet.

You should add Terence Williams, RB Baylor to your list. I give it a 99% chance he declares. Hands down the best NFL-ready back we've had in some time.

6'1, 200 lbs. Runs in the 4.4s.


He's the only player I currently am confident will get drafted.


Other players who could get drafted in later rounds:

Tra'von Blanchard, NB/S
KJ Smith, DE




Then OL Mo Porter and DE Brian Nance could have a chance with big senior years, but putting those two as UDFA atm.

The only player my alma mater has that seems draft worthy is Janarion Grant. No idea what his position is in the pro's because of his size but whenever he touches the ball he's a threat.

Thanks man, will look into those guys. That Blacknall guy is a freak, I remember watching him, but he's kind of a loose cannon guy from what I remember.

Early thoughts on Arden Key?

I've watched him a bit, still forming an opinion, but he's a killer, he closes on the ball fast. Unless there's off-field stuff he's a top-10 lock. I've heard good things about that Ferrell guy at Clemson, anyone else watch him?


Only really watched him during the Clemson-OSU game (and then kind of the championship game), but he was all over the place against OSU. Seemed to be getting by Jamarco Jones too, who is a pretty solid OT.

Hopefully I can find more good ones to share.

I did like some of the tape I saw of McGlinchey. Pretty good patience in his set, good recovery, would like to see him be a little nastier though.

Not really a loose cannon. Just has been inconsistent and has had a few nagging injuries as well as a minor (albeit, got him suspended for the Rose Bowl) disciplinary issue.
