  3. Fashanu or another OL

  4. I rather trade down if these are my choices

    11.1%

    He could be, but the scenario has us trading up for him and passing over Joe Alt. A-trading up is stupid. B- Passing over Alt to take Odunze in a trade up is so beyond stupid it can’t even be put into words.

    His point remains though, Wilson was absolutely a better WR prospect than Odunze is. Wilson came from an absolute WR factory of a school and played against top-level competition.

    projections are simply a matter of opinion

    There’s not as many good defensive prospects this year as there was that year which undoubtedly is helping Odunzes draft stock.

    I dunno, the point really doesn't mean much to me. Who cares where you take each guy from year to year? The circumstances are all so wildly different.

    Ja’Lynn Polk is quite similar to Odunze, big bodied WR, same school and everything. He can be had in the 2nd maybe 3rd round

    Zach Wilson should have taught all of us never to ignore level of competition in college.

    this is revisionist history. g wilson had questions about his game translating, as well. this write up projected him to be a WR2:

    https://www.nfl.com/prospects/garrett-wilson/32005749-4c69-1962-4085-d9c826d8709c

    and who cares if wilson was a better prospect? we need another receiver in the worst way and odunze is also an elite prospect. whether or nor your think wilson was better is splitting hairs.

    and the reason his testing numbers are good is because he was a track star in high school. he ran the 200m in 21.25 and the 100m in 10.67.

    Maybe you trade up for Alt even though I still don't like it because there's no guarantee he'll be the best OL. Trading up for anyone else would be madness.

    Eh there's a difference between 6'3" and 6'1", 4.45 and 4.52… also a big difference between their actual college production. I wouldn’t call them similar at all.

    There's a free Draft contest at Covers. There's about a dozen props to pick and you can win a Fanatics gift card if you're the champ.

    Covers | NFL Draft Challenge

    Of course they also have real props bets available for the draft for those really as confident in how the draft will go as they say here. I'm sticking with the freebies.

    I saw some comps that he could be Chris Godwinesque. I'm not sure how comparable the two are, but just what I've read.

    I think this is pretty Fair. Smaller guys who are built to take some contact that lack serious explosiveness. For the record I think Polk would be a fantastic second round pick up for someone and we found a way to recoup a second I would love to take him. But I don’t think he’s anywhere near the same class as Odunze. Neither do talent evaluators clearly.

    Yeah, that's where having VP of Football Ops has merit, especially if that guy has deep experience in all facets of football, including coaching, but also F.O. experience. IMO it's a guy with a proven recipe for winning and can implement it despite pressure from the owner and CS.

    After reading your analysis of Odunze, I'd definitely be against trading up for him. For Alt? Absolutely!

    Jeremiah has us taking Odunze at 10. Absolute dream scenario. Get one of the best players in the draft at a position of need and don’t have to move up.

    Looks like betting market is catching up to Latham. Now favorite to go #5 overall. Probably will be gone before our pick along with Alt.

    It looks to me like it will be between Odunze and Bowers... If they go OT, I hope it is Olu.

    This is a really solid mock: https://www.nfl.com/news/daniel-jeremiah-2024-nfl-mock-draft-4-0

    The thing that hurts is not getting Nabers (whom we could have had with #6 if we lost one meaningless game). But DJ I think has a lot of things right: Latham, Alt, and Olu top 10 guys, Bowers #15, Odunze around 10.

    Agreed. We may question whether he gave up too much or could have done better if he didn't trade, but they guys he did identify as trade up candidates at the top of the draft were absolute studs.
