*****2018 Draft Predictions*****

Due to the uncertainty of me not knowing where I'll be come March or April, I would love to give me in depth predictions and best players on my board for the NFL draft. All of the players I list aren't the studs like Barkley and Guice, but they are players who I feel are gonna make a significant impact.

Offense:

Calvin Ridley WR - Quite impressive as a receiver if you ask me, by looking at the tape, he reminds me of a mix between Julio Jones and Danny Amendola, with Julio's ability to create separation after the catch and turn on the fast burners to score and Amendola's consistency when in the middle of the field, he should be a star at the next level in my opinion, and even though people are saying he could fall to the Panthers, or near the end of the 1st round, whoever gets him will be a steal. I take a look at a team like the Dolphins who could insert him as the #1 receiver if they lose Landry.

Simmie Cobbs WR - I feel he's one of the complete packages of the draft, and I see a close comparison between Odell Beckham Jr and Randy Moss, both who have the ability to take the top off of the defense and make insane catches. Like Ridley, he's a true number 1 in my opinion, somebody who could be a Hall of Famer when all is said and done, I feel that strongly about him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSP2hhtmSuo

Ray Lawry RB - Though coming from the small school of the Old Dominion Monarchs, the kid is for real. When looking at the tape, I see a resemblance of Kareem Hunt when you look at the size and speed combo, and I think he could be the next big superstar rookie RB when you look at the big scope of things. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLesEtXwCQs

Larry Rose III RB - In my opinion he has the look of Ezekiel Elliott, again another under the radar talent because of the school he plays for, still don't underestimate the diminutive RB, a true do it all threat, I would definitely take a chance on him, he also looks the part of a feature back, but might revert to a Darren Sproles role if teams don't see the ability to deal with the wear and tear 15-20 per game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6KpCFL_1Qc

Baker Mayfield QB - The video speaks for itself, he's a threat when he plays, both through the air and on the ground, he's not your typical Brees or Brady, but he has the tools to be a successful NFL QB and make a name for himself.

Nick Chubb RB - Injuries are the only concern I have about the RB, he fits the mold of a Jonathan Stewart, somebody who isn't lightning quick, but can hit the ground running when he gets the burst and score a bunch of touchdowns https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPkLK3PxGBI

Jamauri Bogan RB - Though he's small in stature, and in my mind looks like a mini Mike Tolbert, he has the look of a bowling ball who can get the tough yards when need be, I don't see him as a three down back, but as a third down back who can get you the first.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJfGObhkZ_k

Ervin Phillips WR - Not a household name, Phillips can turn on the jets and roast a defense. A mix between Brandin Cooks and Juju Smith-Schuster from my vantage point, I see him as a mix between a starting WR in the offense or maybe a slot threat, maybe not as good as Welker, but definitely somebody who can play in the NFL for years and make an impact.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gl3F1i8fwzU

Steve Ishmael WR - Another orange in the fruit basket of the NFL draft, I see a very real resemblance to TO. He seems to have the same build, the attitude, maybe not as much of a diva, but he's somebody who I see having a long career, maybe a few pro bowls, I envision him as a potential nice weapon for Russell Wilson in Seattle.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VogvPmGKSs

Rashaad Penny RB - I see this guy as an AP clone, being a guy you build your offense around, somebody who can carry the rock 20+ times a game and not lose steam. According to the people on the internet, his blocking is suspect, but I believe he can fix it and become an all around threat in the NFL.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdfSOdI3eAc

Diocemy St Juste RB - He had a pretty good career for the Warriors, but I see him as a LeSean McCoy mold, but I think he will be a return specialist in the long run.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NHwpCTLS9w

Wyatt Demps WR - Though there's not much film on the WR, he can be a two way player on both offense and defense, so I don't know what teams will utilize him as, but he can be a weapon.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFcsITUSeCg

Troy Fumigalli TE - I feel he's one of the most complete prospects, he can block, he can catch, he has the feel of Gronk in my opinion, maybe he won't be the stud and put up monster #'s like Gronk, but he can definitely be a big asset in the offense a la Evan Engram.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kW1K0YsIjsY

Tyler Conklin TE - If you want the Patriots to draft somebody to have a two TE system again and be even scarier than we are now, I would draft Conklin. He's got the feel of Aaron Hernandez when it comes to overall talent and promise.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_Pk7mMm8Iw

Dante Pettis WR - He promises to be "great" in the NFL, and I firmly believe he can be. I see Antonio Brown comparisons in his game, I feel he could be a pro bowler consistently, he has the swagger, the game, no holes.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDIp3yNDmjU

Royce Freeman RB - The guy is a load, maybe not as big as Blount, but he surely reminds me of our former star RB, somebody who might not get you 100+ all the time, but somebody who can load up on the touchdowns and be an asset both in real life football/fantasy.

https://247sports.com/Player/Royce-Freeman-20412

Christian Kirk WR - A mix between Evans, Hester, and the Human Joystick, he seems to be the real deal and somebody who can help any offense in the NFL.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-Dqo0ZH7pM

Keke Coutee WR - No, it's not something you can catch in school, but it's something you can catch on a football field running like lightning past you, and in my opinion he's gonna be a comparable, if not better pro than Tyreek Hill, who as his twitter name says "I'm faster than ya", well, you have competition.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARC4WCYJgFc

Akrum Wadley RB - Green Akrum might be the place to be, he might be somebody who makes the green and hits paydirt often, I seem shades of Alvin Kamara in his game and feel he could be part of a successful committee like in New Orleans, or as a main back in an offense. The guy is for real.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4SwhmnYjQQc

Jarvion Franklin RB - He has the mold of Mark Ingram by the looks of his figure, and according to reports can be an asset as a short yard RB, we will see the impact he can make at the next level, but I have faith that he can be successful.

http://www.rotoworld.com/player/cfb/...rvion-franklin

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8a0Llp172Q

Equanimeous St. Brown WR - Another player who scarily resembles Randy Moss, he has the look, kind of reminds me of Moss from 1998 who scored three scores on the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, they are saying he could be an option for the Ravens. Why not to Cleveland to pair with Gordon, two players who you have to account for and then it opens up the run game and maybe a bright future for the Browns and maybe a playoff appearance in a couple years.

https://www.baltimorebeatdown.com/20...wn-news-ravens

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lrQ1MhthRI

Jaylen Samuels RB - Like Christian McCaffrey, he can be an all trades type of player who brings multiple facets to any team who drafts him, somebody who is a weapon in multiple areas.

http://www.rotoworld.com/player/cfb/...jaylen-samuels

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EHUU6TNnZo

Allen Lazard WR - Correct me if i'm wrong, but I see a little bit of Cris Carter in him, he's taller, has the red zone radar, and the speed to boot.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jC0HMY6J-ZM

O-norable mention:

Anthony Johnson WR - Buffalo
Anthony Miller WR - Memphis
Sony Michel RB - Georgia
Dallas Goedert TE - SD State
Auden Tate WR - Florida State
Ito Smith RB - Southern Mississippi
Jaleel Scott WR - NM State
Cam Serigne TE - W. Forest
Trey Quinn WR - Southern Methodist
Cedrick Wilson WR - Boise State
Byron Pringle WR - Kansas State
Desean Hamilton WR - Penn State
Ronald Jones RB - USC
David Sills WR - West Virginia
Jake Wieneke WR - SD State
Anthony Philyaw RB - Howard http://rotoworld.com/player/cfb/140232/anthony-philyaw
Daurice Fountain WR - Northern Iowa
Michael Gallup WR - Colorado State
Kyle Lauletta QB - Richmond



Offense Line + Defense + special teams:
Vita Vea
Denzel Ward
Salesi Uhatafe
Ogbonna Okoronkwo
Hercules Mata'afa(one of the best prospects on D in my opinion)
Bradley Chubb
Ronley Lakalaka
Greer Martini
Uchenna Nwosu
Joel Lanning
Justin Lawler
Christian Sam
Josh Sweat
JK Scott
Chucky Williams(wouldn't he be a great fit for the Raiders)?
Jason Cabinda
D. Senat
Jamil Demby
Marcus Davenport
Austin Corbett

Thanks for the reviews - I don't watch much college ball, so it's helpful to me to see wraps up like this.

But there's more to Patriots football than offensive skill positions.

I think the Pats will be in the market for LT, LB and DE this year. Will you be following up with some more reviews that give us a little bit on o-line players and players on the defensive side of the ball?

YUP, this is looking like a OL/DL/LB/QB/best available player from Rutgers type of draft.

You mentioned Vita Vea and it isn't every day you see a 350 pound interior DL with great strength/motor who runs downfield on STs like a TE.

A fast one.

I can't imagine that he isn't a top ten guy.

I think he might be the best huge size with freakish speed guy I've ever seen. I can't wait to see what he runs at the combine. I'm going to guess 4.7 is possible.

I know nothing of college players, but just ran across this Patriots focussed QB article.


NFL draft: Hey, New England Patriots, we've found Tom Brady's successor here at the Senior Bowl
If Bill Belichick isn't already head over heels for Richmond's Kyle Lauletta, we'd be shocked
FOLLOW @ERIC_EDHOLM
By ERIC EDHOLM
Published: Jan. 24, 2018 — 10:47 a.m.
Updated: Jan. 24, 2018 — 10:47 a.m.

MOBILE, Ala. — If you were playing a game of Bill Belichick Bingo, Richmond QB Kyle Lauletta might check all the boxes pretty darned fast.


First, there are the football traits that this lesser-known prospect possesses. He's a quick processor and reader of defenses. Lauletta moves his feet well and delivers an accurate, catchable ball. For those doubting the FCS level of play, Lauletta did perform well in two matchups against ACC teams — Maryland in 2015 (zero turnovers, a rushing TD) and Virginia in 2016 (when Lauletta played a brilliant game, leading to a 17-point win over the Cavaliers).

On top of that, Lauletta's reputation suggests that he possesses strong leadership skills (he was a leadership studies major, for what that's worth), works hard at his craft and reportedly has strong football character.

That's all fine and nice. But what might get Belichick all lathered up has nothing to do with that. We think we now know who will replace Tom Brady as quarterback of the New England Patriots in a few years. This Jimmy Garoppolo trade is making more sense by the day!

Lauletta was a bit of an unheralded football prospect coming out of high school, with only two FBS offers — Toledo and Old Dominion — both of whom offered straight off his tape. But Lauletta strongly considered chasing his other passion as a prep: lacrosse.

"I was a big lacrosse guy, absolutely," he said. "For a while I thought I might enjoy playing that in college. I just enjoy football more. I think it’s a better team sport. But I’ve always grown up a lacrosse guy. My dad was an All-American in high school. My uncle played in college."

A-ha! Now we're really getting into Belichick's wheelhouse here. For the uninitiated, Belichick is an absolute lacrosse nut. He has a stick at the ready in his office and is always ready to toss the ball around with anyone who is interested and passionate about his second-favorite spot. Belichick also has spoken often about incorporating lacrosse strategy into football and said he loves listening to coaches of that sport talk about how they design their offensive and defensive strategy.

"You think about skills on the lacrosse field that translate to football — toughness, change of direction, lot of good things that helped me in football," Lauletta said.

We think he and Belichick will have a few things to talk about whenever their paths cross, perhaps at the NFL scouting Combine in a month. (Belichick is a little tied up with this Super Bowl prep thing this week.)

"A couple Patriots scouts came in to see me [at Richmond this season] and when they found out how much I liked lacrosse, that was one of the things they said, ‘Oh, Belichick will love this!’" Lauletta told PFW on Tuesday before practicing with the South Team, coached by former Belichick lieutenant Bill O'Brien and his Houston Texans coaching staff.

We can only assume that word has trickled back to the Death Star on this one. And if somehow it hasn't, Lauletta can pull at Belichick's sometimes cold heartstrings with this incredible nugget that hits even closer to home: Both Lauletta's father and uncle played for the Naval Academy.

Good lord almighty, Belichick might have to choloroform the kid and drag him back to Foxborough to ensure he gets his man.

Belichick's father, Steve, was a long-time assistant on the Cadets' staff, and Belichick grew up in the shadows of the legendary program that was led by players such as Roger Staubach in the early to mid-1960s. Belichick has always held reverence for the program and addressed the staff last year while visiting his elderly mother who still lives in the area.

Joe Lauletta, Kyle's father, was a quarterback for Navy in the mid-80s. His uncle, Lex, was a punter in the late 1970s. Dollars to doughnuts says Belichick has broken down both of their tape. I mean, a punter at Navy, are you kidding? Belichick recently held a dissertation on the finer points of punting on a Patriots media conference call that stretched out to the 25-minute mark. We have a feeling he could have gone on longer than that.

This is just central casting right here. Write your mock drafts in dark ink now.

Lauletta has respect for the Navy, obviously, but didn't consider them for football because of the triple-option offense they ran not being conducive to his skill set. That's understandable. Actually, Lauletta is one of the few quarterbacks in Mobile this week who has experience running a pro-style offense — including for one year under John Garrett, brother of Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, in 2016.

In his first Senior Bowl practice, Lauletta had an auspicious start. Though not flashy, he consistently connected on short and intermediate passes and gave his receivers great chances to make catches and plays after the catch. He'll have more opportunities to shine on Wednesday and Thursday, working alongside what appears to be lesser-talented South Team quarterbacks. (Baker Mayfield and Josh Allen are on the North Team.)

"I’d say if you look at quarterbacks who have been successful over the long haul, accuracy is the most important attribute," Lauletta said, "and I think I’ve shown that my accuracy is elite. Anytime you can put the ball where you want it to be, I think you have a chance at the next level. First and foremost, I do think that is my best attribute, quarterback skill-wise."

It's actually remarkable that Lauletta asserted himself as well as he did on Day 1 considering that two nights earlier, right after he arrived at the Senior Bowl on Sunday night, he was up all night vomiting profusely.

"I was throwing up all throughout the night Sunday night," he said. "I started throwing up at like 10:30 that night and every hour on the hour I was in the bathroom. They took me to the ER.

"They gave me a couple IVs to get the fluids back in and stuff. But that was scary."

Our theory? It was Belichick. He must have slipped something into Lauletta's chicken salad as a way of keeping him off the field and letting the quarterback impress another team. What, you're not buying that theory? Don't underestimate Belichick's long-range chess moves, people.

And for all of you who still harbor serious doubt about the Patriots' decision to trade Garoppolo, consider this: The quarterback whom Lauletta has most often heard his game compared to is ...

"Jimmy Garoppolo, an FCS guy, a guy I’ve been compared to a few times throughout the process," Lauletta said. "He’s a great guy to be compared to; he’s doing really, really well. That whole system they have, the success speaks for itself.

"You look at the quarterbacks they’ve taken over the years, and I think I fit that profile as far as a guy who processes information well, good football IQ."

That's it, blow the whistle, we've heard enough. And we suspect Belichick has, too. Oh sure, he's up to his sleeveless armpits in the Philadelphia Eagles right now leading up to Super Bowl LII. But in a few weeks? It'll be a whole lotta Lauletta on his radar.

Well we'll be picking at the bottom of the heap this year (again) so what are the chances that this guy will be available? If teams get a sniff that the Patriots are interested they might pick the guy just to **** us.

Yeah, I'm sure BB & Co. are watching Lauletta closely.

Yes I can give my personal review of the defensive and offensive line players I said, and the punters too, and kickers.

So do we have an assumption as to who is definitely gone next year?

Solder? Hightower? Branch? Malcolm Butler? Dola?

Does that not factor in draft strategy? I know you take the best available player but I really don't see this team drafting at WR.

Solder is a free agent and unfortunately I think his kid is sick. To play at the level he has is pretty awesome all things considered. so I think LT may be an issue.

Branch I assume is gone but more young players for depth that can learn under Brown on DL and Hightower/Van Noy on defense.

QB is obvious since Tom is old and Hoyer is not the future.

Interesting read on Mayfield:

Optimum Scouting's Eric Galko wrote that Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield "looks like a computer" in his assessment of reads.
Galko passes along that Mayfield looked "completely comfortable in the pocket with his progressions" during Thursday's practice. The analyst adds that the 6-foot, 216-pound Heisman winner has been crisp in his footwork and deadly accurate when throwing to the right. There have been no surprise skeletons in how he's handled practice work in Mobile. He's currently undecided as to whether he'll play in the Senior Bowl itself, but that matters far less than the way he's been handling his reps. In addition to his on-field success, he's also been a gravitational force in the locker room -- Mayfield has the personality and demeanor to win over teammates and it's shown even in this manufactured setting

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline relays that Army T Brett Toth is "really creating a buzz for himself in scouting circles."
Toth (6'5/304) was a standout performer during the East-West Shrine Game last week and has been dominant down in Mobile in his Senior Bowl practice work. Per Pauline, on Wednesday, he "shut down every top defender who lined up across from him." All of this is very encouraging and in ideal circumstance, Toth could very well be in play for a second-round selection. There's a caveat here, though, as the offensive lineman has a two-year commitment to serve in the Army now that he's graduated. It's possible that the Department of Defense could allow him a waiver for that commitment, though it's very uncertain whether he will actually receive that. The DoD publicly said in 2017 that they would stop providing such waivers for athletes looking to play professionally, but Pauline writes that he's been told this is not a policy that's "carved in stone." Toth's draft slot will very much depend on whether or not he receives a waiver

UCF LB Shaquem Griffin has yet to receive an invitation to the NFL Scouting Combine.
Griffin (6'1/233) believes that he will eventually receive an invitation to Indianapolis, but at this juncture, one has yet to come his way. A lack of an invite would probably be a sign that the NFL does not believe he has a realistic chance to be drafted. Count us on the other side of that argument. Griffin may be undersized, but he's been a terror on the field over the last two years with the Knights, posting 33.5 tackles for loss and 18.5 sacks in that space. He's also incredibly versatile, having already seen work at safety, linebacker and edge during the Senior Bowl practice week. Setting aside all of the football aspects that would go into a Combine invitation, Griffin's is also an enormously inspirational story -- he had his hand amputated at a young age due to his being born with a birth defect -- and this would be an incredibly positive move on a pure PR level for the NFL

Optimum Scouting's Eric Galko called NC State RB Jaylen Samuels "the most impressive, complete running back" at the Senior Bowl.
A huge part of Samuels' appeal for the next level comes in his fantastic versatility. The 5-foot-11, 223-pounder worked as an H-Back with NC State, where he lined up variously in the backfield and at both receiver and tight end. The Senior Bowl has funneled him into Mobile as a running back, but whichever team ultimately drafts him will have an enormously position-flexible chess piece on their hands
