    36. Dolphins: Jevon Holland, S, Oregon
    Grade: C
    Surprising he's the first safety off the board in this class. Tons of ball production at Oregon and his instincts are through the roof. But not the most sudden nor the fastest in man coverage. Average in run support. Does fill a need

    :cool: we'll see

    43. Raiders: Trevon Moehrig, S, TCU
    Grade: A+
    My No. 1 safety in this class. Will immediately provide a versatile upgrade over what Vegas has at that position. Tall, dynamic movements on the field, ball production. He's got it all. Raiders need playmakers on defense

    46. Bengals: Jackson Carman, OT, Clemson
    Grade: B-
    Big, natural mauler who's rarely pushed into the quarterback and moves better than expected for his size. Not the twitchiest but did improve his pass protection each year at Clemson. Bengals had to go OT here

    48. 49ers: Aaron Banks, OL, Notre Dame
    Grade: C+
    Big, bruising guard with a wide body. Anchoring is naturally outstanding. Athleticism is average at best for the position. He'll handle power players well. Smaller types will give him problems. Weird fit in San Francisco

    59. Browns: Terrace Marshall, WR, LSU
    Grade: A-
    Clearly some type of red flag for Marshall to fall this far. This is a big, fast vertical threat who tracks it well and is a horse in the open field. Not a smooth separator but will crush it on the vertical route tree

    60. Saints: Pete Werner, LB, Ohio State
    Grade: A-
    Love this pick. Super-fluid but bulky linebacker who sinks in coverage like a safety and hits like an old-school linebacker. Tested awesomely too. Creates dynamic linebacker duo with DeMario Davis

    Yep, I saw Holland get picked & forgot to post it. (Fixed). Nice write up on those players. Just found this, only included the SEC & PAC12. Both LSU & Oregon with 2 picks so far.

    2021 NFL Draft picks by college, conference

    SEC (29)
    • Alabama — 8
    • Florida — 3
    • Georgia — 6
    • LSU — 2
    • Kentucky — 2
    • Auburn — 1
    • South Carolina — 2
    • Mississippi — 1
    • Missouri — 1
    • Tennessee — 1
    • Texas A&M — 1
    • Vanderbilt — 1
    Pac-12 (11)
    • Washington — 3
    • Stanford — 3
    • Oregon — 2
    • USC — 1
    • Oregon State — 1
    • UCLA — 1
    Ohio State, Georgia & Notre Dame cleaned up in rounds 2 & 3 with 5 picks each.


    I always find the 4-7 rounds really interesting, never know who's gonna get drafted. Some craziness sure to ensue.

    ducks were the youngest team in the ncaa last year, most of our draftables left the year before,.. we're done I think,.. maybe CB, Deommodore Lenoir

    maybe nose tackle, Jordon Scott, I'd like to see Fat Mac get a shot in the NFL,.. 5'11", 355 lbs, he was extra fine for us, unmovable, no one could get under his pads

    Scott grew up a Florida Gators fan, then Gators coach Jim McElwain worked hard to get Scott to commit early and not take any other visits. In spring 2016, Scott obliged.

    He rocked Gators gear at Florida games that fall. He was locked in to becoming a Florida Gator. Then in November of Scott’s senior season, Florida yanked its scholarship offer.

    “They just said I was too fat and I couldn’t come anymore,” Scott said.

    :cool: fuck florida

    Werner sucks... he got smoked in coverage, often, by running backs and was out of place or overmatched in the run game.

    I hate this pick.

    I love all these “draft grades”. How y’all think pick 199 looked in 2000?
