Seahawks: Mac Jones, Quarterback, Alabama Russ Wilson is on a contract year, 34 years old, and has been in trade talks. If he is on the roster or not the Seahawks must look fo the future. Mac Jones has been propelled up draft boards the same way Joe Burrow did a few years ago. He dominated the college scene once he became the starter, and before that was looked at as a late round prospect. He has a chance to go in the top 12 if someone moves up for him but with no trades he slides to Seattle who would take him in a heartbeat. Deadly accurate passer with average to above average arm strength can make all throws needed at the next level. Has won and won big at the college level. One of the knocks on him is his team is so good he rarely has to come from behind and is usually surrounded by first round talents. He will have to prove he can win in close games and come from behind at the next level.
Dolphins: Tremon Morris-Brash, Left End, UCF. The Dolphins are drafting knowing they have back to back super bowl champion Buffalo in their division. The Bills have won with an elite passing attack and the leagues best defensive line. Miami takes a play out of their playbook and grab an elite pass rushers in Trenton Morris-brash. He has good burst and solid lateral movement. He wins up front with his ability to mix up his rush moves and quickness. A NFL lifting program will do him wonders as he still needs to get stronger and looks like he can play at a higher weight then he has in college. He has a lean frame and bulking up a bit certainly helps him with his ability to take on and shed blockers.
Saints: KJ Henry, Left End, Clemson. New Orleans have a few needs to address with this pick and have had their names in many trade rumors so far. We will not project any trades currently and have them staying put and adding an elite pass rusher. Kj will be able to step in day one on passing downs and get after the quarterback. His college stats don’t show what his tape does. He has elite first step quickness and uses his hands well to shed blockers. He will need to do better at stopping the run, but that’s something he can improve on over time. Does not possess elite speed for the position but will do with in his 10 yard splits at the combine. Except him to be in the 4.8 range. He could tumble out of round 1 if he has a bad showing there.
Cardinals: Jaylon Jones, Cornerback, A&M. The Cards follow a growing theme in round one of adding to a strong position. The nfc has some loaded offenses and the Cardinals grab another corner to deal with that. Jones is a big tall corner. Has outstanding body quickness and suddenness, particularly for a 6’2 corner. Has shown top tier combine athleticism and can jump out of the gym. Has position versatility as a safety or a cornerback. He is a willing tackler but doesn’t have great power in his hits. He will fit in well with the rest of the fast athletic secondary Arizona has assembled.
Eagles: Andrew Booth Jr, Cornerback, Clemson. Philadelphia has had one of the better corner back tandems in the league for years, but Big Play Slay is getting up there in age and on the trade block. They turn to Booth, as he is a hyper athletic corner who will fit right into the defense schematically. Long rangy corner who played press man and off zone in college and held his own in both. Fluid hips who can turn and run with any wideout in this years draft class. Will have to improve his tackling as he sometimes sells out for a big hit and misses. The db coach will have to get him used to wrap and twist techniques.
