As Usual We All Know We Are Picking At #32 After Winning The Super Bowl
Kyle Fuller Cornerback Virginia Tech
Skills: Very Good In Man Coverage, Somewhat plays like a Young Nnamdi Asomugha (Before his Prime or Asomugha Island) great tackler in space, have experience playing in the box (Georgia Tech Game) has good anticipation and good football IQ as well. Can also be a ST player who makes an impact. Has good ball skills as well to go with his long lean build
Improvements: Will gamble at times when been jumping early routes, and get burn on the long play, like the North Carolina game bit on the stop and go and got burn for a touchdown, but VT was up big so didnt matter much also with time running down
[Luxury Pick Here]
Round 2: With the 64th pick of 2014 NFL Draft The Super Bowl Champion Cincinnati Bengals Selects
Davante Adams WR Fresno State
Skills: Very long and lean, doesnt have the best elite speed but has a good long stride, Is very slippery to take down, makes a lot of guys miss before getting gang tackle. Has a good vertical leap to go get the ball at the highest point is capable of playing in the slot, simply a playmaker on offense making people miss and fighting for yards after the catch
Improvements: Lack of competition every weekend, best competition was probably vs Leon McFadden CB for the Browns, Have some easy drops looking to make a move before he catches the ball. A System WR?? Spread Offense with an Aerial Attack. Somewhat have trouble going over the middle tend to shy away from contact and somewhat timid to get lay out (I understand and most of his drops are over the middle as well too)
Round 3: With the 96th pick of 2014 NFL Draft The Super Bowl Champion Cincinnati Bengals Selects
James Stone C Tennessee
Skills: Very good Center who can get to the 2nd level and get a hat on a guy, can also move in space with his speed and is easily one of the safer prospects in my opinion, (reminds me of Rodney Hudson coming out of Florida State not too long ago) will be a great pick here
Improvements: Has good speed with a small frame being an interior linemen, he's somewhat small being at 292lbs but should bulk up and handle the interior, has good talent around him on the Tennessee Offensive Line, I believe they are all NFL caliber players
Round 4: With the 128th pick of 2014 NFL Draft The Super Bowl Champion Cincinnati Bengals Selects
Derek Carr QB Fresno State
Skills: Has a very good arm is very accurate, has the speed to take off when needs too and is willing to slide, can make the throws you want him to make to the WR, leadership skills not in doubt led Fresno State back vs San Diego State and also is very calm
Improvements: Sometimes his makes makes you go crazy, correctable mistakes, when he takes off sometimes he pulls back and throw instead, also sometimes doesnt slide and is willing to give up his body for a big play, tries to leap over defenders and usually gets hit. Competition Level worries people, also is in a gimmick offense in spread but has been a Pro Style Offense as well so can play either one very well.
Round 5: With the 160th pick of 2014 NFL Draft The Super Bowl Champion Cincinnati Bengals Selects
Brendan Bigelow RB California
Skills: Shifty and can make a lot of people miss, track athlete who has the speed and has a good build for a RB, has good vision and a good 1st one cut step, can keep plays alive from nothing to something has good hands coming out of the backfield and is a good returner as well
Improvements: Small Frame being at 187lbs will need to bulk up as also as well may be a suspect in Pass Protection and been dealing with fumble issues this season.
Honestly if I think he will come out in this draft because of the system in Cal New HC, New Philosophy. Also he was a Jeff Tedford Recruit so he's looking to leave in my opinion unless he wants to stay another year. I believe he has fallen out of favor in the RB spot from the beginning (just my opinion) also fumbling the football doesnt help too so just gotta sit on that bench
Round 6: With the 192nd pick of 2014 NFL Draft The Super Bowl Champion Cincinnati Bengals Selects
Derron Smith S Fresno State
Skills: Has very good ball skills for a Safety, think of a smaller version of Phillip Thomas without the dreads as well too, Captains of the defense who he knows all the plays and checks and knows where to line-up everyone has a good Vertial leap being 5'10 and can cover bigger WR/TE's when matched up in Man coverage and plays near the LOS, also a good tackler
Improvements: Size may be an improvement if he was only 6'0-6'2 he would be a perfect fit into the back-end, getting off block maybe is a problem for Smith when he plays at the LOS he uses his speed to get away from blockers but when engages he have trouble getting off OL players
Round 7: With the 224th pick of 2014 NFL Draft The Super Bowl Champion Cincinnati Bengals Selects
Kenarious Gates OT Georgia
Skills: Has good size and plays LT for Georgia Bulldogs, and have seen many DE's who is NFL Caliber, and knows how to deal with them. So has been very consistent throughout his career
Improvements: Somewhat plays a little too high and tend to let smaller pass rushers get under his pads. Suffered a leg injury vs Boise State
Hopefully you like filled with a lot of Bulldogs and yes we got a few from Fresno State!!
Feedbacks, Criticism and inputs would be nice, there's always improvments!!
