My concern is that no top player drops that far, that our top 15 players or so are off the board, and that our grades for the players still available are similar to those for several players who will be picked 10 or 15 slots later.

For those players who may be available at 24, whom do you like? Jefferson, Shenault, Dobbins and possibly Queen come to mind for me. I think Dobbins, if we get a good 40 time, might be the upset. But at 24, there is no interior offensive linemman, defensive back, or tight end who excites me.

It is not in our DNA to trade down, but this is the year we should really consider it. More likely, I see a trade up six or so slots to get somebody we really like Jeudy.

Pass rushing LB with cover skills would be like hitting the lottery. I would really hate for us to draft a QB or RB in the 1st round. Both can be had in the 4th round if we have a pick. This draft is very deep and there will be stunners that did not get drafted and we all know who is the king of attracting UDFAs. :yes:

Zack Baun and K'Lavon Chaisson seem to fit the Jamie Collins mold, who was an early target in free agency.

I think the pick will be WR, DB, or LB.

S/CB/SLOT/DB Antoine Winfield Jr. If the process wasnt killed by this virus madness, I have zero doubt that he'd be this drafts biggest riser. In terms of DBs, Jr. is arguably the most versatile player at his position. W/Williams on the last year of his rookie deal, and M. Jenkins being 32yrs old, I can see an underrated talent like Winfield Jr. being the darkhorse pick at 24. In my opinion, this dude is a better version of Chauncey coming into the pros, and I absolutely LOVE CJGJ!

Jr. literally does EVERYTHING in the secondary. He balls as a single high, playing the robber, at Strong, and at the Slot S positions all the same. He even returns punts and kicks, and also plays on the the coverage teams. Watch his film, it's all there in plain sight. That's the exact kind of versatility that's become synonymous w/our most recent draft picks. Plus, he's a bloodlines player. Then he aced the Combine in both the athletic tests and positions drills. I think Winfield Jr. is best kept secret of this draft. Sucks that he wont get the chance to elevate his stock, cause he's 100% a 1st RD talent. Would love for us to be the ones who land him.
