GM Adofo-Mensah's first draft pick being a safety is not what I saw coming. Cine is a heady, top tier athletic talent that could eventually be the best S in this class, but he isn't near a finished product, while last years day 3 find, Cam Bynum, played pretty well at single high and nickel. This selection might say a good bit about Harrison Smith's near future.
CB Booth was considered a 1st round talent by many but a med red flag knocked his stock back a bit. He's a strong scheme fit and could outshine his draft slot.
OG Ingram was an underrated prospect and looks to be a plug and play guy. I'm a big fan of CB Evans and considered him a great value fr whichever team takes him past the 3rd round.
LB Asomaoah is a solid value in the 3rd and helps as a nickel LB or safety but it's hard to ignore the Vikings passing on edge prospects by this point. Asomoah has blitz ability but he's not a real edge. DE Otomewo is a developmental 5 tech and a solid mid round stab.
Skill guys RB Chandler, WR Nailor and TE Muse are great value talents with specific skillsets that should help situationally at the least. OL Lowe is a heavy power guy that could stick as an interior lineman.

LB Quay Walker was arguably the biggest reach of the 1st round. He represents a need for the Packers and his skill set fits the scheme but he was an ordinary guy on a talent laden Georgia squad.
Teammate DT Wyatt was arguably the most productive defensive player on that Georgia team but off field character concerns threatened his stock and nearly took him out of the 1st round.
WR Watson is a good scheme fit and has a unique skill set for a tall WR. The test is how quickly chemistry can be established with Rodgers. OG's Rhyan and Tom are rock solid mid rounders that ought to outplay their draft slotting.
WR Doubs is a ball skill talent with deceptive speed but could struggle to get clean releases. He's also an experienced returner that could earn a role in special teams. Edge Engabare is a flash talent and solid mid round get.
DT Ford has flashed at Miami but could sustain any real impact. OT Walker is a similar story. Talent flashes but he's a developmental guy. WR Toure is a good scheme fit and a nice late round pick up. S Carpenter is a special teams guy. UDFA OT Caleb Jones flashed to me a lot and showed well at post season practices

DE Hutchinson is a prototype edge guy and an obvious pick at #2. 2nd round DE Paschal is a different type. He's a stocky 5 technique that excels at holding the edge but is more of a clean up finisher than disruptive pass rusher.
WR Williams was the best deep threat receiver in this class but won't be available until 2023. TE Mitchell was a sneaky good later round pick. Mitchell missed the majority of his final year and his stock plummeted but he's a solid pass catching TE without major blocking liabilities
S Joeseph is a ball hawk and a solid value pick in the 3rd. LB's Rodriguez and Houston are interior and edge guys respectively that are decent mid round talents. CB Lucas is strictly a special teams practice squad guy.
Big fan of UDFA DT Taylor. Woefully undersized but flashed a lot of playmaking ability at Appalachian St TE/FB Deese is another underrated talent that I thought could have been drafted.

Not many analysts would've considered the Bears secondary a bigger need than their skill position group.....but the Bears clearly did. CB Gordan and S Brisker are flash talents that I wouldn't consider blue chip prospects but have future starter ability. And while each fill a need it appears like GM Poles kicked the can down the road on acquiring skill talent.
WR Velus Jones is a better returner than WR. Ironically the exact same can be said of the Bears only other skill position pick in RB Ebner.
Better moves were made in finding mid and late round OL talent imo. OT Jones and OC Kramer are underrated guys that I'll wager out play their draft spot. OG's Thomas and Carter are more developmental but also solid later round pick ups.
Edge Robinson and S Hicks are long shots and more practice squad types. UDFA's that stood out for me are TE's Allen and Tonges...and LB Sanborn. I's wager these three find a roster spot.
