Jonathan Allen is a perfect fit and replacement for Chris Baker. This is easily an A+ grade.
The Redskins pick Alabama senior Jonathan Allen here. Jonathan Allen had 10.5 sacks, 16 tackles for a loss, and 15 quarterback hurries in 2016 during his senior season. My biggest concern with Allen is that I see him as a 3-4 only player, but he looked like he could play defensive tackle in the 4-3 against Texas A&M. Allen got schooled on tape when facing Arkansas left tackle Dan Skipper and does better against guards and right tackles on tape. He had similar problems against Clemson left tackle Mitch Hyatt who is expected to be a top 5 pick in 2018. Allen also struggled against Kentucky center Jon Toth as well, but he did get a sack on Western Kentucky's Forrest Lamp even though Lamp played well against the 6-3 285 lb Jonathan Allen.
O.J. Howard is a top ten talent. He is a big target and another weapon for Winston to throw to.
O.J. Howard is 6-5 249 lbs and he absolutely dominated in Mobile, the 2017 NFL Combine, and Alabama's Pro Day and is a top 12 talent. Howard had 45 receptions, 595 receiving yards, and 3 receiving touchdowns in 2016.
Jarrad Davis is a plug-in-player here. He will play right outside linebacker where DeAndre Levy played.
Jarrad Davis had 25 solo tackles, 31 assisted tackles, 56 total tackles, 6 tackles for a loss, 4 deflections from pass breakups, 5 quarterback hurries, and 2 sacks in 2016. Davis has been all over the field in 2016. Davis got injured against Arkansas and missed the South Carolina, LSU, Florida State, and SEC Championship games, but he has the versatility to play 4-3 right outside linebacker, 4-3 middle linebacker, 4-3 left outside linebacker, 3-4 right outside linebacker, 3-4 middle linebacker, or 3-4 left outside linebacker. Davis is the most versatile linebacker prospect on tape in 2016 after Reuben Foster and his foot speed is vastly superior to Zach Cunningham's. Even with his injuries, Davis is a better player on tape than Cunningham when healthy.
New York drafts the 6-3 236 lb Evan Engram as a tight end for Eli Manning and Engram dominated the 2017 NFL Combine with a 4.42 40-time. Engram had 65 receptions, 928 receiving yards, and 8 receiving touchdowns in 2016.
This pick is a slight reach here. Peppers addresses a need though plus the Browns have two first round picks in 2018 which is why the Browns got a B grade.
Editors notice. I saw a tweet saying that Donald Trump called this the worst pick since Brandon Weeden. Trump was wrong about Manziel three years ago so now I'm bumping this up to an A+ pick because Trump does not know football.
Takkarist McKinley was expected to be an outside linebacker in the 2017 Senior Bowl after accepting his invite to Mobile before being ruled out of the 2017 Senior Bowl with an injury. McKinley had 18 tackles for a loss, 10 sacks, and 6 deflections from pass breakups in 2016. McKinley has the versatility to play 4-3 right end, 4-3 left end, 3-4 right outside linebacker, or 3-4 left outside linebacker with his versatility. I initially had McKinley as a 4-3 defensive end, but he is a better fit for 3-4 outside linebacker after watching his tape.
The 5-11 191 lb Tre'Davious White did too well in Mobile to fall out of the first round correcting his issues with press coverage and stopping the run after having 13 deflections from pass breakups for LSU in 2016. At the same time other underclassmen stepped up at the 2017 NFL Combine which is the biggest reason White fell as far as he did. White would be a good cornerback next to Ronald Darby here.
The 6-5 252 lb T.J. Watt only has one year of experience as a starter. Watt lined up at 3-4 right outside linebacker, 3-4 middle linebacker, 3-4 left outside linebacker, 4-3 right outside linebacker, 4-3 left outside linebacker, and 4-3 middle linebacker.
Watt had 38 solo tackles, 25 assisted tackles, 63 total tackles, 15.5 tackles for a loss, 11.5 sacks, and 13 quarterback hurries. Watt's ability will intrigue the Steelers from a value standpoint despite the bad combine.
Reuben Foster had 60 solo tackles, 55 assisted tackles, 115 total tackles, 13 tackles for a loss, 5 sacks, and 8 quarterback hurries in 2016. Foster dominated in coverage in 2015. My only concern with him would be to add 5 lbs of muscle at 6-1 228 lbs.
Foster has the pass rushing of Demario Davis, stops the run like Lawrence Timmons, drops back into coverage like Jamie Collins, and has the exact same versatility as former Alabama linebackers Dont'a Hightower and Reggie Ragland. This linebacker also has the best rip and swim moves on tape since Lawrence Taylor and he's more of an inside linebacker rather than an outside linebacker even though he could be a plug-in-play guy at any linebacker spot in the NFL.
Foster has the versatility to play 4-3 right outside linebacker, 4-3 middle linebacker, 4-3 left outside linebacker, 3-4 right outside linebacker, 3-4 middle linebacker, or 3-4 left outside linebacker. Foster is the most versatile first round linebacker prospect on tape in 2016.
