1. Asante Samuel Jr. CB FSU to the Chargers at pick 47
Samuel will fit into Brandon Staley’s scheme perfectly. Samuel is everything Brandon Staley looks for in a cornerback, Samuel has outstanding instincts, good awareness, is competitive in the run game and plays bigger than his size.
2. Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah LB/S Notre Dame to the Browns at pick 52
First if the reason Koramoah fell is because he’s positionless that’s stupid. Koramoah is an outstanding athlete with great instincts, a true swiss army knife. I big reason I believe Andrew Barry pulled the trigger on getting JOK is not only because he should have been taken a long time ago, is that they play Lamar Jackson twice a year and JOK is fast. Imagine this guy tracking down Lamar Jackson in space, Just call Koramoah Anti Action Jackson.
3. Trevon Moehrig S TCU to the Raiders at pick 43
I think Raiders fans would be happy if you just flipped their first two picks (Moehrig in the 1st and Leatherwood in the 2nd.) Moehrig has great instincts, good range, he just patrols the middle of the field. I think Moehrig should have gone late first or at least 33 to Jacksonville but the Raiders get lucky here.
4. Alim McNeil NT N.C. State to the Lions at pick 72
Brad Holmes clearly is taking the John Lynch and 49ers method in his rebuild or retool of the Lions as his 3 picks were all in the trenches. Alim McNeil is an outstanding athlete at 320 pounds, for being 320 pounds McNeil moves really well for his size. McNeil is a playmaker and a people mover in a defense that clearly lacks that.
5. Amari Rodgers WR Clemson to the Packers at pick 75
We all know about the situation with Aaron Rodgers, but Amari Rodgers presents Rodgers or Love with a true weapon. Amari Rodgers can do whatever you need Jet Sweep, Routes from the slot, Routes from the outside and Routes from the RB position or at least he was asked to run some from there for his pro day. Amari Rodgers is an Elusive, walking big play threat that can make an impact on Matt LaFleur’s offense on day 1.
Great list! But no Teven Jenkins? He is first round talent drafted in the second round. Not to mention the fact that the Bears desperately needed O-line help.
I loved the pick. there was just so many good picks, I could of done a list of 10 or 15 pick I loved. I left off Samuel Cosmi, Teven Jenkins, Joseph Ossai, Creed Humphrey, Dyami Brown and many more.
