No, I dont hate picking King and dont hate Ross -- I just hate the combo, and especially Ross in the first because i fully expect better players to be available.
Though i think theres a slim chance a Mike Williams, Derek Barnett, Foster or Lattimore could fall, there are several far more realistic players id take over Ross.
Tim Williams, Haasan Reddick, Charles Harris, Cam Robinson, Marlon Humphrey, OJ Howard... id take Corey Davis over Ross and he has a chance to be there. Id probably even prefer Dalvin Cook or Fournette to Ross.
And if Ross is the BPA at 16 (which i cant see) then id much prefer to trade back and target Cam, Bolles, Ramchyzk (sp?), or Lamp.... Tim Williams/Harris/Takk/TJ Watt, White/Wilson/Humphrey/Conley, etc... and get much better value, an extra pick(s) and still a better player (imo of course).
I do like King and think he has amongst the highest upside of the CBs in that range but if we went WR in the 1st as your mock does id much rather we go Dan Feeney, Dion Dawkins, or another highly rated OL, highly rated pass rusher is still available... and theres at least a few CBs id have to think long and hard about before taking King especially if Quincy Wilson is there.
I think Magnuson is taken way too high here. I would expect better players at that position to be available, and definitely better players at other positions.
Its not terrible overall... but i hate Ross at 16.
I get hes not one dimensional like most speed guys, but his route running is way over sold. Doesnt have great hands, will find it harder to separate in the NFL, doesnt come back to the ball well, and can be very wild in his runs after the catch.... spinning wildly and exposing himself to big hits. He'll get destroyed doing that in the NFL. Plus injuries are a concern, and are of major concern to a guy whose best asset is speed.
And while he may be more well rounded than most speed guys, speed is still his only elite trait. Take away the elite speed and hes no where close to a 1st round talent. If he were a back end 1st or early 2nd talent without the speed, then yea i could see the speed making him worthwhile at 16. But i just dont see it, and dont see him as bringing anything unique to our offense.
Dont take it personally. You like what you like. Stand on your convictions, nothings wrong with that and no one can blame you for liking who you like. But it doesnt make those who disagree wrong.
