Welcome to my 2014 NFL Draft breakdown.
I love the Draft, it comes around my birthday, ESPN puts baseball back where it belongs, in segment 3, and it means the NFL year has started.
So lets go down the NFL Rosters and see how it went for each team.
What I said then: Ok, thank the LAWD. He can’t block and he’s not a huge guy, he’s 5’9/10 so he’s not giant by any means. He does catch a TON of balls, and he runs good routes. He’s got GREAT balance. Drew Brees is gonna love this guy.
A with the my fourth round pick, my fantasy team will be picking him.
What I think now: He’s gonna be hard to trap in space, and his quick. I don’t think he replaces Lance Moore, since he’s not a burner like Moore, but he will do a lot to replace Darren Sproles, solid pick, and thanks goodness its not Ha-Ha.
Round 2 Pick 58
Stanley Jean-Baptiste CB Nebraska
Converted WR, I’m guessing he got moved because he didn’t catch that well-only 4 picks in his senoir year, but can be pushed out of position, even though he’s 6’3. Some have reported he might be a saftey in the NFL, but I don’t see it since he’s not that physical, and safties in the NFL have to hit better than he does. I think this is a reach pick, and I might be wrong, but I don’t think he’s going to start very long in the NFL.
Round 4 Pick 126
Khairi Fortt LB California
REACH. He’s does like to hit, but has a tendency to miss a lot of shifty runners, but thankfully if he’s in coverage against a TE, this might not hurt him. I don’t think he’s big enough for a large role, but in a rotation? I’m ok with trotting him out there.
Smarter more than fast. Makes the right guesses to be in the right place and the right time to make a play. I do have concerns if the windows he creates by being smart and guessing right vanishes when everyone is faster than you. Where did he go to school? Oh, I’ll shut up now.
Round 5 Pick 169
Ronald Powell OLB Florida
All world talent. Coming out of high school was the top guy per several scouting reports. Didn’t really become the next big thing, but did show flashes of being awesome, but he blew two ACLs, and decided it was time to get paid. If he is even close to 100%, this is a steal. If not . . . .
Round 6 Pick 202
Tavon Rooks OT Kansas State
Reach, yes even for a 6th round. He’s too slow on the speed rusher, and not really strong enough for a bullrusher, he under 300 pounds though, so he’s roataional at best. For now.
Overall. Lets see, 4 reaches, skipped Ha-Ha, and I only see one starter on day 1, but Jean Baptiste, Sunseri and Powell could be worth watching. I am not impressed
20: Arizona traded this selection to New Orleans in exchange for New Orleans’ first and third round selections (27th & 91st)
169: New England To Philadelphia To New Orleans for running back Darren Sproles.
242: New Orleans traded this selection to San Francisco in exchange for linebacker Parys Haralson.
