The Chiefs draft strategy took a possible detour day 2 as the news about Tyreek Hill's contemptible behavior became public. With the real possibility of permanently losing their #1 WR and the league's best big play threat, the Chiefs had the take a WR with their first choice in the 2nd. Hardmon is a similar type talent that has experience as a dual offensive threat and on special teams and might take the sting out just a little.

 

Thornhill is a CB playing S that's been a good playmaker at Virginia and was a must need position to hit. DT Saunders could easily out play his draft position. He stood out at the pre draft all star practices and provides a good interior rush prospect for the new defense. CB Fenton is aggressive with upside but he's not much more than a late flier. RB Thompson is a Brandon Oliver type that could stick. And Allegretti is strictly depth at OG and OC.

UDFA WR Felton Davis was I guy I was high on last year but after suffering a season ending injury and missing all the pre draft evals he became a forgotten man. He's a solid big target that can catch routinely in a crowd. RB Williams could surprise if he develops more of an all round game besides just catching passes out of the backfield. LB Johnson tested better than anyone anticipated and does a solid job of getting to the ball.

With the impending move to Vegas, Mayock put a premium on guys that could be trusted and be relatively reliable....players that could set the tone on and off the field and be able to endure or conversely, get fired up by, the HC. Despite that good production at Clemson, Ferrell's physical make up isn't special or top 5 worthy. He's long with some versatility but has just adequate get off and mobility. But his intangibles are harder to quantify and the reason the Raiders coveted him. He's a Russell Maryland like pick and projects as a solid all around DE but nevertheless may not be near as productive as he was in college.

 

Jacobs was the best RB talent in the draft and has very little weaknesses to his game. The biggest factor as a rookie with Gruden will be how many snaps he gets, as he wasn't a workhorse at Bama. Abram sold himself predraft as a mature character guy, and he may be that, but he did start a massive brawl last season vs Ole Miss by throwing the first punch. He's a star S/LB type that can range, cover and blow things up.

 

Mayock traded back, acquired extra picks and took a solid CB in Mullen. He's a size/speed guy that will tackle but a little inconsistent in coverage at this stage. CB Johnson's an athletic flier...top tier athleticism but needs to learn how to play the position. TE Moreau and WR Renfrow are solid situational types that do specific things really well. Moreau's a blocker with decent hands and Renfrow's a slot with great hands.

 

Praire View's Bell is an undersized edge guy with a great motor that posted a 41 vert, 4.53 dash and 7.25 agility at his pro day. I was a big LB Coney fan and feel they should have a steal there in UDFA. Ingold was one of the best FB's in this class and WR Doss is an absolute grinder.

Denver Broncos

 

(20) Noah Fant, TE, Iowa

(41) Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas St

DT Jaylen Johnson, Washington

OLB Malik Reed, Nevada

LB Josh Watson, Colorado State

CB Alijah Holder, Stanford

RB Devontae Jackson, West Georgia

LS Jacob Bobenmoyer, Northern Colorado

DE Ahmad Gooden, Samford

 

 

Broncos did well to trade back and pick up a solid offensive skill player in Fant. TE wasn't a position I thought they especially needed but Fant is versatile and could be used like a big situational WR . OL Risner is a steal and should prove a major upgrade upfront.

 

Lock is a very similar guy to Flacco and it'll be interesting how much he borrows from the former as he matures. I think the team desperately needed a starting caliber CB but instead choose OSU's DT Jones. Jones is also a good prospect, a great fit for the defense and is arguably a better prospect than any CB's available at that spot, including Justin Layne or Julian Love.

 

Edge Hollins and WR Winfree are good athletic developmental guys. UDFA Holder might get an opportunity to play a lot. He's a solid flier that should make the team.

Los Angeles Chargers

 

(28) Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre Dame  

(60) Nasir Adderley, S, Deleware

(91) Trey Pipkins, OT, Sioux Falls

(130) Drue Tranquill, LB, Notre Dame

(166) Easton Stick, QB, North Dakota St

(200) Emeke Egbule, LB, Houston

(242) Cortez Broughton, DT, Cincinnati

 

UDFA

DT Reggie Howard – Toledo

CB Bradford Lemmons – Furman

G Koda Martin – Syracuse

WR Jason Moore – Findlay

P Tyler Newsome – Notre Dame

DE Chris Peace – Virginia

DB Rodney Randle – Lamar

TE Matt Sokol – Michigan State

S Roderic Teamer – Tulane

WR Trevion Thompson – Clemson

C Tanner Volson – North Dakota State

LB Elijah Zeise – Pittsburgh

NT Eurndraus Bryant – NC State

T Blake Camper – South Carolina

LB Josh Corcoran – Northern Illinois

RB Jeremy Cox – Old Dominion

CB Kemon Hall – North Texas

TE Daniel Helm – Duke

 

 

 

Tillery is a great scheme fit and fills a big need with a high upside prospect. Adderley is a CB playing safety that could pair well with James but he'll need seasoning and better strength to be a reliable last line defender.

 

OT was a significant need and Pipkins was an athletic developmental prospect. Tranquill's a solid all around LB but I might've tabbed WR Darius Slayton as a successor to Benjamin instead of more LB depth.

 

QB Stick is an athletic, gritty QB but his arm talent isn't there. DL's Ebule and Broughton are high motor defensive guys that could contribute with better technique and strength in time.
