You miss that window and essentially have to hope a guy drops for you at 38. Not at all a fan of that severe move down.
I could see a move down of 3-4 spots if we have multiple targets sitting there and no overwhelming favorite but a move that far down is like giving up on the drafts real talent.
We aren't getting a blue chipper at 38.
No real issue with the actual picks except I am not a big fan of going for Stepfan in round 3. He doesn't have star potential imo and we really do not need to go RB early. I'd much rather grab a WR at 80 and a RB at 144.
I just don't see any legit blue chip guys at positions of need that will actually be there at 18. I fully expect Richardson, Floyd, Ansah and Warmack to be gone before 18 and I just really don't love anybody else outside of those guys. I know a lot of people love Cooper, but unless we feel confident he can play C from day 1 I wouldn't feel very comfortable drafting him at 18. Not that he isn't a good OG, I just don't see him as a impact or all pro type of guard you expect at #18.
Outside of Richardson, Floyd, Ansah, Warmack, and possibly Lane Johnson (all will most likely be gone) who do you view as a much better prospect than a guy like Sylvester Williams? I think that window extends past 35 in my opinion. After about the top 12 guys on our board there A LOT of similar players in terms of talent in this draft.
