My concerns with all of my top 50 prospects

April 23, 2017 09:54AM
Inspired by Laram and his picking out flaws in prospects games to educate the masses, which is good IMO, because everyone is so focused on the good, its nice to see some of the flaws. I thought I would throw out some concerns I have with my top 50 guys. Now some are more serious then others. Am I really concerned with Fournette being a 2 down back? No, but it leads to being more scheme fit then anything. Same with McCaffery. I really don't think being a bellcow is an issue for him.

Others I have more issues with:
The 2 LBers from Alabama, Williams for having a career trajectory like Randy Gregory and Foster for just making one bad decision after another.

Then there are the injury issues: Allen's shoulder issues could cause him to slide. There is no doubt that Sidney Jones is in for a slide. The question is how far?

As always any questions, things I missed, or disagreements are more then welcome.


1. Myles Garrett - DE - Texas A&M - If i had a concern its with his lack of production in the SEC.

2. Jonathan Allen- DL - Alabama - I have heard his shoulder issues could be worse then what anyone is hearing.

3. Leonard Fournette - RB - LSU - being a 2 down back.

4. Malik Hooker - S - Ohio State - 1 yr of starting. Raw

5. Jamal Adams - S - LSU - No real concerns.

6. Marshaun Lattimore - CB - 1 year starter. Raw. Some soft tissue issues.

7. Christian McCaffery - RB - Can he handle the load as a bellcow? Sat out bowl game and didn't do 1 private workout...

8. Derek Barnett - Edge - Tennessee - Undisciplined at times.

9. Soloman Thomas - Edge - Stanford - Maybe his tweener size, but he is a safe prospect.

10. O.J. Howard - TE - Alabama - Nothing.

11. Haasan Reddick -OLB - Temple - Narrow frame.

12. Mike Williams - WR - Clemson - Lack of ability to separate..

13. Reuben Foster - ILB - Alabama - Serious off the field issues resulting from poor decision making.

14. Corey Davis - WR - Western Michigan - Injury history.

15. Ryan Ramczyk - OT - Lack of experience. Raw.

16. Jabrill Peppers - SS - Does he have a natural position.

17. Mitch Trubisky - QB - a 1 year starter that couldn't beat out Marquise Williams...

18. John Ross - WR - Washington - Size and durability.

19. Dalvin Cook - RB - Off the field red flags.

20. David Njoku - TE -Raw, right now he is more of an athlete then football player.

21. Cam Robinson - OT - Alabama - Issues this year against speed rushers. Arrested on gun and weed possession (no charges filed)

22. Takkarist McKinley - OLB - UCLA - Raw as far as pass rush, won at UCLA with effort.

23. Zach Cunningham - ILB - Vanderbilt -Narrow lower body.

24. Charles Harris - Edge - Missouri - Playing strength.

25. Marlon Humphrey - CB - Alabama - He was beat a few times deep this year.

26. Caleb Brantley - DT - Florida - Consistency and apparently interviewed poorly at the combine.

27. Deshaun Watson - QB - Accuracy and the offense he came from.

28. Taco Charlton - DE - his inconsistency and the fact he only started in his final year.

29. Quincy Wilson - CB - Florida - Can get handsy at times.

30. Tre'Davious White - CB - LSU - Lack of physicality.

31. Forrest Lamp - OG - My only concern would be drafting him to play OC. I think he could, but why?

32 . Gareon Conley - CB - Ohio State - He's a better fit right now in a zone scheme. As La mentioned, his lack of physicality tackling.

33. Malik McDowell - DT - Michigan State -

34. Kevin King - CB - Washington - Kind of a tweener.

35. Evan Engram - TE - Ole Miss - his WR/TE tweener size.

36. Garett Bolles - OT - Utah - Quit football and came back...

37. Obi Melifonwu - S - UConn - His instincts are not nearly as good as his athletic ability.

38. Budda Baker - FS - Washington - His size for a S and has stone hands.

39. TJ Watt - OLB - Wisconsin - more effort guy than athlete

40. Jordan Willis - OLB - Kansas State - A tad limited athletically.

41. Tyus Bowser - OLB - Houston - Raw. Got a late start in football.

42. Pat Mahomes II - QB - mechanics combined with decision making.

43. Jarrad Davis - ILB - Florida - Gets washed out more then I care to see.

44. Curtis Samuel - WR - Ohio State - Not big enough to be a RB, raw route runner as a WR. Does he have a natural position?

45. Adoree Jackson - CB - Size coupled with being raw.

46. Dan Feeney - OG - Indiana - Was suspended earlier this year and then missed 4 games due to concussion.

47. Tim Williams - OLB - Alabama - Admitted to failing a "few" drug tests. I have read its more like "many".

48. Sidney Jones - CB - Washington - Achilles injury keeps him from playing this year.

49. DeShone Kizer - QB - Notre Dame - Inconsistency along with being intercepted in 15 or his 23 starts.

50. Dion Dawkins - OG/OT - Temple - Is he a OG or OT?
