Buffalo has Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer. Jessie Bates III has outstanding coverage. He needs to add more strength before being thrown into the starting lineup, and Buffalo is a great fit cause Jessie Bates III can add strength before replacing Poyer.
Jessie Bates III has three games of tape in this film session. Watching Bates get stiff armed by Christian Kirk makes me question anyone mocking Bates ahead of Kirk.
Indianapolis needs a number two wide receiver next to T.Y. Hilton. So far Indianapolis got Quenton Nelson at left guard, Derrius Guice at running back, Tyrell Crosby at right tackle, and Equanimeous St. Brown as a wide receiver next to Hilton. With these weapons, plus the tight end duo of Jack Doyle and Eric Ebron, Andrew Luck is due for a huge season in 2018.
The Texans can get their left tackle here. Julie'n Davenport moves to right tackle. Jamarco Jones had a strong Pro Day at Ohio State. Houston spent a lot of time with Jones at Ohio State's Pro Day. Getting Jamarco Jones allows Houston to solidify the offensive tackle spot and protect Deshaun Watson.
Denver cut C.J. Anderson. I don't trust the duo of Devonta Booker and DeAngelo Henderson. Neither one emerged last season so they get another running back so their quarterback of the future has a running back he can turn to. Braden Smith was picked by Denver in the second round so now Braden Smith gets to block for one of his Auburn teammates in Denver.
The Jets got an amazing secondary. They just need a pass rusher who can get double digit sacks on both sides. Josh Sweat wasn't the sack artist Demarcus Walker was, but he has far more athleticism than Walker did on tape so Josh Sweat gets drafted by the Jets at this pick in the third round.
The Oakland Raiders have Gareon Conley as their number one field cornerback. The boundary cornerback competition is wide open. Even Free Agent Rashaan Melvin hasn't been guaranteed the job even after his terrific 2017 season in Indianapolis. Tarvarus McFadden could push Melvin for that job and be a great nickel cornerback for Oakland at the very worst.
The Packers seem to reload at the safety position every year. HaHa Clinton-Dix enters a contract year. Elliott was considered a first round prospect prior to the 2018 NFL Combine even though I never bought into the hype. Green Bay can take Elliott as a project safety here and mold him for the future kind of like how they molded Josh Jones for the future last year in 2017.
Cincinnati gets the best free safety on the board here. I am more confident in Armani Watts as a free safety than Kyzir White after rewatching both on tape. Cincinnati gets a new starter at free safety here.
Detroit gets a tight end here in the third round because the value is too good to pass on. Some believe Mike Gesicki is the top tight end. Even with Detroit's multiple additions at tight end in Free Agency, Mike Gesicki may be a better long-term upgrade at tight end for Detroit than someone like Luke Willson or even Levine Toilolo who are both depth tight ends compared to Gesicki.
Baltimore has their blindside in Ronnie Stanley. They gave last years right tackle James Hurst a four year extension so a swing tackle like Brandon Parker is needed. I've only seen Parker line up at left tackle even though the Ravens need a right tackle for depth in the worst way possible.
The Los Angeles Chargers get a linebacker for depth behind Denzel Perryman. Perryman missed half of the season last year, and the Chargers had no backup plan. That changes with this team drafting Lorenzo Carter and his 4.4 speed here.
The Chiefs get a cornerback who can replace Marcus Peters here. Stewart won't have the same impact as Peters, but he could end up starting in the first week of the season when you consider how thin Kansas City is at cornerback.
The New Orleans Saints draft a quarterback to groom behind Drew Brees. I'm more confident in Luke Falk's mechanics and deep ball then I am with Kyle Lauletta. Both could be great starters under the tutelage of Drew Brees, but Falk gets the nod here.
Jacksonville gets a wide receiver for depth. Dante Pettis didn't get much exposure in front of NFL Scouts, but his tape speaks for itself. Matt Waldman calling Pettis the top receiver in the entire draft may be enough for Pettis to creep into day 2 of the 2018 NFL Draft.
