The Patriots got the fourth best guard here. He pass blocks like Orlando Pace, but needs work as a run blocker. If he stays at left tackle like Cordy Glenn did this pick will be a steal. Regardless, its a solid pick and worst case scenario he sits out a year before taking over for Shaq Mason at right guard.
I did a film session of Isaiah Wynn recently. Wynn did a great job on tape and if he wasn't injured during the 2018 NFL Combine he may be in the late first round discussion.
Atlanta gets a massive steal with Calvin Ridley. There are still a good amount of defensive tackles still on the board that Atlanta could trade up for on day 2 of the 2018 NFL Draft. This is easily an A+ grade because Ridley gets to replace Taylor Gabriel in the slot complimenting Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu. Ridley may even surpass Sanu as the number two target down the road.
Sony Michel is a reach here. He doesn't have the ball security pass protection you want. I had Michel 151st on my board. Derrius Guice and Nick Chubb are better pass catchers and better in pass protection then Sony Michel. I rewatched him in the 2018 College Football Playoff and I like his vision and pass catching after re-watching him. That doesn't change the fact that both Derrius Guice and Nick Chubb would have been better picks.
Lamar Jackson is a steal at this point. I initially gave the Ravens a C grade here, but after watching the Ravens load up on day 2 of the 2018 NFL Draft, I'm moving this pick up to an A grade.
Lamar Jackson won the 2016 Heisman Trophy after having 3,543 passing yards, 30 passing touchdowns, 21 rushing touchdowns, 51 total touchdowns, and 9 interceptions in 2016. The 6-2 208 lb Jackson has 3,660 passing yards, 27 passing touchdowns, 18 rushing touchdowns, 45 total touchdowns, and 10 interceptions in 2017. Lamar is a fantastic decision maker with elite duel threat ability. The big issue is he's never completed 60 percent of his passes in College and you also see issues with his accuracy at times on tape, but finally got that up to 60.4 percent this season in 2017. Lamar struggled in his bowl game with 4 interceptions so I can see Lamar falling to Arizona only to be their quarterback of the future.
Lamar only threw the ball 49 miles per hour at the 2018 NFL Combine with his velocity which is pretty low. One scout told me that Lamar Jackson had the worst whiteboard session since Akili Smith at the 2018 NFL Combine. He rebounded at Louisville's Pro Day despite not being as accurate as his Pro Day as the other four quarterbacks. Right now I'll give Lamar the benefit of the doubt and mock him at 15 though.
I uploaded a film session on Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson. Lamar Jackson was practically flawless in his tape versus Virginia and really made a strong impression in that one game.
