I really like Sidney Jones, and not only because his first name is an easiest anagram for Disney I've seen in a long time. He's competitive, he's scrappy, and he is excellent at making plays on the ball. I know he's a little on the lighter side, but honestly all of our corners are. We aren't the Seahawks, and that's okay. Jones is good against the run and great against the pass. While he may not be one of the top two guys as a rookie, he very well could out-compete our current roster. Even if he is the guy who comes in on nickel, I think that VH3 would slide to the slot and let Jones match up on their guy outside. That's not a bad idea. However such things would play out, he's a great corner with great skills and I'll think he'll do great here. Love the pick, props for not going with the usual suspects.
I have been a homer for JuJu for awhile now. He's a faster Laquon Treadwell and compares very favorably to Anquan Boldin. If he had played in the SEC and/or with more consistent quarterbacks, he would be a shoe-in for a first rounder. He needs to work on the finer aspects of running routes, but with Evans and DeSean giving him pointers, I see no reason why he couldn't. He immediately becomes one of the better number 3 receivers in the league, and is more than able/willing to do the dirty work in the middle of the field. He has sure, strong hands, and will be another reliable weapon for Mr Winston.
Foreman would be a great contributor to the committee, and would definitely add more power to our rushing attack. He needs refinement in the passing game, especially as a blocker. One could surmise that because he is such a liability as a pass blocker, putting him in the game tips the hand of the offense. Nevermind all that. As Cadillac Williams proved, you can improve as a pass blocker with time and effort, and I don't think anyone is questioning Foreman's work ethic. He may not be The Man for awhile, but he can give us quality snaps, deepening a shallow position on the roster. Another #WeaponforWinston
Another small school defensive back? Sigh. Oh well. It's hard to evaluate these guys, because the level of competition isn't much better than high school in some cases. I dunno. He looked good in the Senior Bowl, I remember that. But how does he stack up athletically? He's not big, not fast, not explosive. Not much of anything, really. At the combine this year, among all the safeties, he scored at the very bottom of every drill he performed. That's right, the worst times and scores of all participating safeties. He only competed in four drills, else he probably would have been crowned combine's biggest loser. For those keeping score at home, he had the the slowest 40 yard dash, fewest bench reps, slowest 3-cone drill, and slowest 20-yard shuffle. I'm not sure I trust a guy that unathletic to be an NFL safety. Combine that with hesitation on film, waiting to read and react (which he's great at, don't get me wrong, excellent instincts to be sure), and I think he is going to be burned over and over and over again. I don't support Lorenzo Jerome. Sorry.
Chase Roullier, Mike Roberts, and Montae Nicholson all have interesting traits as late rounders.
All in all, a good draft. Perhaps a bit unrealistic, because that's alot of sliding there. That Lorenzo pick, tho.
