After Cox, Coples and DeCastro who is the SAFEST Draft Choice at 14?
I wouldn't call Coples safe... but i'm going to go with Gilmore or Upshaw after that. I don't like the Upshaw pick though.
I would say trade down may be safest option if DeCastro and Cox are gone.
I wouldn't call Coples safe either. I think Gilmore and Barron are next on the list. Maybe Upshaw.
These guys strike me as safe, obviously we won't draft a WR or TE at 14 though.
The 20 year old DT from LSU Brockers looks to be at least a safe pick...he could stud out.
He is the player that I really don't know what to think about. He could end up being a solid player.....but the production just isn't really there. Doesn't have the high motor I think is required to play in the front 7. But like I said, I don't know what to think about him.
I'd prefer Cox or Coples, but the next safest pick, imo, is Brockers.
He is what he is....on day one he'd be better than any DE on the roster.
Right now he can do his job versus the run and is a load to block 1-1. His potential to get even bigger, stronger, and more polished since he was only twenty this year, is staggering.
He would be a starter for many years even if he didn't get better, but if he reaches his maturity and potential, he'll command double teams.
Difficult question after Aaron Curry was viewed as the "safest" a few years ago. Never know.
Luke Kuechly and a distant second would be Cordy Glenn.
Probably Barron, dont see much "bust potential" with him. He will be a good safey, maybe not probowl level, but he will be a good safety in the NFL.
Kuechly though I have seen him going as high as 9.
Obviously DeCastro. I think 3 out of the 4 'Bama prospects are extremely safe picks. They may not be "boom" prospects but the bust factor for all 3 is very low IMO. The only guy i question is Kirkpatrick.
Coples safe? Hardee-har-har.
Don't think so.
I would have to say Glenn.
This but my distant second is Barron.
Gilmore or Barron I guess
Safest is DeCastro.
I'm not sure at 14 that is best, maybe it is. But safest? yes.
Is there anyone out there that thinks DeCastro won't be a very, very good OG?
Agree. Maybe the other OT as well.
We won't be drafting Cox or Brockers unless we want to go 8-8 again.
