Miami's pick of Ja'Wuan James the OT from Tennessee is bad reach IMO.
They wanted Martin.
I completely disagree. He is one of my favorite players and was the next best tackle. I think the drop off after him is fairly large. If you like a guy go and get him, he wasn't gonna be available to them in the second.
Certainly a much better prospect than James.
I like Marcus Smith, but he went to early. I also thought James could have went 15-20 picks later.
I would take James over Moses, Kouandjo, Bitonio. I actually thought it was a smart pick for them.
Only bad thing is they may have been able to trade down a little if they found someone willing, but I guess not.
There were three that stood out to me. Miami taking James, Arizona taking Bucannon and the Eagles taking Smith.
Reach, reach reach.
not a fan of Ebron. Detroit could have used T/CB/S more than a TE
Detroit taking Ebron instead of a CB/S was weird.
That was odd.
The only good thing is that Ebron ought to be a good choice in fantasy football.
Philly use to be a great drafting team. They also got good value in early rounds... not anymore I guess.
I don't know Michael. A lot of teams had him graded as a 1st round talent going into the week.
Marcus Smith getting picked by the E-Gals completely shocked me. Not that I am complaining but what was that all about?
I had a couple tackles graded higher that him.
The one problem I have with him is that he's only a right-tackle. I don't see him having the athleticism to play on the left-hand side.
I would rather have had Chris Smith if they were going to reach.
I think he has the Athleticism. His 10 yard, shuttle and 3Cone are all pretty good, in comparison to the top guys. He will need to get stronger but I like him.
I wouldnt have picked him there but quite a few scouts had James as a first rounder. Eagles pick looks questionable as does Shazier to a 3-4 team.
James pick was a head scratcher,, IMO the Buffalo trade was a shocker......that was a hefty price to pay for a WR..... Sammy Watkins is awesome and hope it works out for him and Buffalo like it did Julio and ATL.
Bortles at 3
Lewan to TN made no sense
ShaZier doesn't seem to fit in a 3-4
Buchanon way to high
And buffalo gave up way too much
Yes, it was a bit of a reach, but he is one of the more ready-now type OL in the draft after the top 4.
