Not sure if I would put this guy on the top of my list but over the past couple of days I’ve been doing a little homework on Hasson Reddick. Guy looks like he could be an absolute stud at SAM. 6’1″ 240 ran a 4.5 forty, and his tape is off the charts. Granted I doubt temple plays the stiffest of competition, but he led the nation in TFL’s.
This guy gets AFTER the QB. Word is that he also came into college as a corner, so cover skills are there. The only downside is see with this guy is that he won’t be on the field every snap. However, selecting Reddick I feel might give our front seven the biggest boost of any other D-lineman/ LB that would be available. Also feel that this selection would alow for more creative looks, and depth at several spots on Defense.
We keep talking about not having corners/safeties that match up with wide outs in our division, but I think consistent rush would help out the backend more than anything. JMO.
without off the field or injury concerns factored in:
2. John Ross
3. Mike Williams
4. Joe Mixon
5. Leonard Fournette
6. OJ Howard
7. Curtis Samuel
8. Corey Davis
9. Christian McCaffery
10. KD Cannon
Funny how I genuinely fit KD Cannon there despite him being currently mocked as a 4th round pick. if were talking playing makers, I just cant not have him in the top 10, we’ll see on draft day/weekend what NFL teams have him ranked.
If we aren’t worrying about utility, injuries, and intangibles (which are all huge in my book), but just straight playmaking ability (moving the sticks and “explosives” as DK likes to call them…not strictly what they did in college, but what I feel will transfer to the NFL), I’d go with:
Henderson (Carlos – I feel like he may be Steve Smith)
I’m not putting Mixon on this list. I think he needs to go to an Outside Zone/Stretch offense that features a lot of “Read” plays and a lot of daylight. If he goes to a traditional Power scheme where he is expected to run through “trash contact” or small creases at the first level, I think he’ll struggle. I know people love him, but I feel there is a lot of boom or bust with him (I did my analysis as to why on a prior Mixon thread).
