Kid is a stud. He’s deadly when blitzing. But he’d be a steal IMO in the 6th. At WORST he’s a stud special team IMO
I can see him being the "feel good" story on day 3 of the draft. There's always one guy and it seems like his journey is as good as anyone's.

i made a little mock draft too, but its too raw now to even write up. But my main player I want with our first pick is Price. I am also really hoping for 1 more Oline guy, but if we get Cousins it would be a tad spendy. Price and Elf playing side by side would make me so happy. And a good young 3 tech DT. Im not sure what the fuss over a CB would be, Id rather look for a young QB to draft mid round, and a few kickers with the 6th round picks we get.

Nice! Yeah I'd like to see more guys do them on here. They do take a while to make but they are fun reads. I'd love for Price to be paired with Elflein too. I'm not sure on CB either. I think a lot of analysts that actually think they know what they are talking about dont realize the giant jump Waynes made. Many either think Waynes is a liability or say "well Newman is retiring so they need a CB". One, it doesnt look like he's retiring and two, even if he did, we would need a mid-rounder or decent FA at most I would think. Especially with how well of a job Zim does coaching up his DBs. As for kickers, I definitely want to draft or sign one to compete with Forbath but I wouldnt waste more than 1 pick on one.

The only kicker I would draft is Blankenship. I believe he will be a stud in the NFL. I could see him being drafted in the 5th or 6th round by someone who needs a kicker.

Him along with Carlson who I had us picking up in this mock. Carlson isnt as good as Blankenship but also didnt miss an XP in 4 years (granted they are shorter) and is right around 81% on his career

Hope it's not a big deal, Vikings interviewed him earlier this week so there's definitely interest.

Yeah I saw that. Really sucks. If it's severe I'll probably just change that pick to Isaiah Wynn- OG/OT out of Georgia

So I just revamped the first two rounds. We took Maurice Hurst- DT Michigan in the 1st and Will Hernandez- OG UTEP in the 2nd. This was actually the two scenarios I was debating when writing this up. Do I got DT then OG or OG then DT. So with Price going down I figured I'd switch it. I really wanted to plug Price in one of the later rounds for us but wasnt sure where to put him. Have to see the severity of the injury first.
