Allen has the traits and measurables that might get him a look as a developmental prospect, but he seems more like a case of an overhyped prep star who won’t pan out.
C. J. Beathard Authentic Jersey
With average NFL size and athleticism, Silvers has to dominate with accuracy and timing, and that’s not his game. He’ll come into the NFL as a late-rounder or priority free agent, but he is coachable and smart enough to make a roster.
Benkert has the look of a nice backup prospect who can come in and be a spot starter down the road. He doesn’t have great consistency, but there are traits worth checking out.
Fozzy Whittaker Authentic Jersey White is one of our favorite developmental prospects in this draft. He has solid mechanics, good accuracy and enough tools to see the field once he gets into Carlos Ruiz Jersey the league.
With Lamar, you feel it in the room. You can tell that he can lead. So if he’s your quarterback, you start looking closely at the things he did well at Louisville and you build that way.
Scrutiny of Jackson includes聽questions about his 59.1% completion rate last season and his mechanics as a passer. Yet that came with a depleted receiving corps and too many dropped passes. Jackson has drawn praise from draft experts for his decision-making, ability to throw on the run and 聽his deep passes. And then, of course, there’s that threat to run.
It also matters that Jackson was groomed in a pro-style offense traced to the scheme that Tom Coughlin employed during his first stint in Jacksonville, when current Louisville coach Bobby Petrino was an assistant.
I could see the Atlanta Falcons looking at a tight end at No. 26. I could see them going tight end, too. However, it’s more imperative that Atlanta finds a replacement for Dontari Poe next to standout defensive tackle Grady Jarrett.
Florida’s Taven Bryan has the perfect skill set to fill that role in the Seattle-style defensive scheme the Falcons run.
Bryan reminds me of a poor man’s J.J. Watt or Michael Bennett in terms of power and agility at the point of attack. He can shed blockers and create havoc in the backfield. He has quick hands and can disengage blocks as fast as anyone in the draft.
For a team that values versatility and playmaking along the defensive front, Bryan is a great fit. He’s aggressive, has a high motor and a ton of upside. Bryan will be able to make plays next to Jarrett and then kick out to end to bolster Atlanta’s pass rush or anchor against the run rotation if needed.
