Players I would LOVE at 16:
Derek Barnett- my favorite player for us. Instant pass rushing upgrad
Hasoon Reddick- Modern day defensive player. See above. Jamie Collins type of an impact.
Forrest Lamp- Another JC Tretter. Could slot him to play at C, LG, or possibly RT if we are desperate. But his best fit is the interior.
Players I'd really like
Rueban Foster- STUD. I know ILB isn't as important when you already have a good one, but he'd make the middle of the field virtually impossible to run against/throw into.
Mike Williams- I think Davis is a better fit for the team short term, but that Williams has a larger ceiling. Not quite as good as AJ Green, but similar impact.
Corey Davis- See above. Except more fluid. #1 WR at the NFL level from day one
Ryan Ramcyzk- I'd hate slotting Lewis at G(I'm starting to think that he's been overrated by the fanbase. He really wasn't that good), but Ramcyzk is a potential pro bowl on the right side of the line.
Marlon Humphrey- I don't think he's as good as others do on here. But I wouldn't hate him.
John Ross- Good player, injuries scare me though.
OJ Howard/David Njoku- Hell of a player, but given that we've invested a lot in recent years at TE I'd be slightly dissapointed if we went TE in the first. That said, I think these two are future studs so I wouldn't be mad.
Players I'd hate
Malik McDowell- Worst pick we could make. Overrated. Physical gifts are there, but he's not a good football player. Would make the Jernigan trade even worse.
Cam Robinson- No doubt in my mind that we are drafting this guy today sadly. He's a lousy fit at tackle, good fit at guard, but since the team (foolishly) sees Lewis as a guard, he'd play tackle. I'd feel awful for Joe if we drafted him. And I have 0 doubts in my mind we will.
Dalvin Cook- No chance we draft him due to character concerns. I think he's a future superstar, but given what he did to a dog, Hell no.
Overall. I'd like most of the prospects that are likely to be there. However, we have to PRAY that the Colts take Robinson and save us from ourselves.
