    2021 NFL Draft: PFF's Top 300 Big Board




    By Michael Renner
    Feb 15, 2021

    The 2020 college football season is not one that will soon be forgotten. In fact, it will easily go down as one of the most unusual on record. But now it’s NFL draft season.
    With the 2021 NFL Scouting Combine and pro days once again threatened, there will be more uncertainty than any recent year. Let’s let the tape remain king as we unveil PFF’s postseason top 300.






    QB TREVOR LAWRENCE, CLEMSON


    1. Three straight seasons of grades over 90.0. What sets Lawrence apart in a loaded quarterback class is how quickly he sees the game. He is the only quarterback who has played 200 snaps against the blitz over the last three years and has graded over 90.0 on those snaps.





    QB ZACH WILSON, BYU


    1. Wilson possesses special arm talent and performed at an equally special level this past season. His lowest grade of the season still came in at 76.1.





    QB JUSTIN FIELDS, OHIO STATE


    1. Fields has had his hiccups this year, but don’t let that make you think he’s not an elite prospect in his own right. His blend of accuracy, arm talent and running ability doesn’t come along every year.
      PFF’s 2021 NFL Draft Guide is loaded with three-page draft profiles on hundreds of NFL draft prospects in the 2021 class. The draft guide also includes three-year grades, advanced stats, player comparisons, 2021 NFL Scouting Combine data, 2021 Reese’s Senior Bowl grades and much more.

    OT PENEI SEWELL, OREGON


    1. At 19 years old, Sewell had the single highest graded season we’ve ever seen from a Power 5 offensive tackle. Who knows what he could become when his body is fully developed?





    WR JA'MARR CHASE, LSU


    1. Chase did what DeVonta Smith did this year at 19 years old, and he was doing it against guys like A.J. Terrell and Trevon Diggs, who are currently the best starters on their respective teams. His 24 deep catches that year is still the most we’ve seen in a single season.





    LB MICAH PARSONS, PENN STATE


    1. The Penn State linebacker earned the second-highest run-defense grade we’ve ever given to a true sophomore. What the 240-plus-pounder can do as a blitzer is going to be a weapon in the NFL.





    WR JAYLEN WADDLE, ALABAMA


    1. The “other” Alabama receiver is a freak athlete in his own right. If you extrapolated his four games out to a full season, he’d have gone for 75 catches, 1,671 yards and 12 scores.





    WR DEVONTA SMITH, ALABAMA


    1. The Heisman Trophy winner. People will point to his frame and weight (175 pounds), but until someone can give me some examples on tape of it being an issue, I’m not too worried.





    TE KYLE PITTS, FLORIDA


    1. I’m no fan of drafting tight ends early, but calling Pitts a tight end is selling him short. If he were solely a receiver, Pitts would be in this range because of his ability to beat one-on-one coverage.
      PFF's 2021 NFL Draft Guide contains a full list of pros/cons, a long-form written analysis above a bar chart of stable PFF metrics and Mike Renner's “Bottom Line” and “NFL Draft Projection” for every prospect in the guide.





    QB TREY LANCE, NORTH DAKOTA STATE


    1. The tools are prodigious. Offensive coordinators must salivate watching him flick it 60-plus yards downfield one play then outrun a safety on the next. But with just one season in a run-heavy offense against FCS competition, Lance is still a massive project as a passer.





    EDGE KWITY PAYE, MICHIGAN


    1. Paye has everything you could want physically to be an every-down problem in the NFL. While he never put it altogether at Michigan, he’s shown he can take to coaching and has made strides every single year.





    OT RASHAWN SLATER, NORTHWESTERN


    1. Slater allowed all of five pressures back in 2019 before opting out in 2020. At only 6-foot-3, he may get stuck inside, but we think he’s more than athletic enough to hang on the edge.





    CB CALEB FARLEY, VIRGINIA TECH


    1. He’s got the size and speed part of the position down pat and was pretty darn good at the coverage part when we last saw him in 2019. He allowed a passer rating of only 26.8 that season.





    DI CHRISTIAN BARMORE, ALABAMA


    1. After a slow start to the season, Barmore turned it on at the end of the year. His performances against Notre Dame in the College Football Playoff Semifinal and against Ohio State in the National Championship were two of the most impressive we saw from a defensive tackle all season.





    OT CHRISTIAN DARRISAW, VIRGINIA TECH


    1. Darrisaw turned in the second-highest-graded season from a Power 5 tackle in a massive breakout 2020 season. He’s an easy people-mover that few are going through.





    CB PATRICK SURTAIN, ALABAMA


    1. You won’t find a better combination of size, length and technique in the draft. All Surtain doesn’t have is the high-end speed you’d like when drafting a corner early.





    S TREVON MOEHRIG, TCU


    1. At 6-foot-2, 202 pounds, Moehrig has a lot of prototypical physical tools for the position, and they’ve translated to the field. He led all college safeties in pass breakups in each of the past two seasons.





    WR RASHOD BATEMAN, MINNESOTA


    1. Bateman can get off the line of scrimmage with ease then beat you with either his shake or his size. One of the best route-runners in college football, Bateman led the country in yards per route run from an outside alignment as a sophomore in 2019.





    LB JEREMIAH OWUSU-KORAMOAH, NOTRE DAME


    1. The Butkus Award winner for the nation’s best linebacker. JOK has elite short-area quicks for a linebacker, and while 215 pounds may seem tiny, it’s the same weight that Darius Leonard played at this season for the Colts.





    EDGE JAYSON OWEH, PENN STATE


    1. Oweh can do things physically that other edge rushers can only dream of. With reported 4.3 speed, he can play both ends of an option play with ease. The Penn State product took a massive step forward this season as a run defender in his first season as a starter, earning an 89.8 grade in the process.





    WR RONDALE MOORE, PURDUE


    1. Moore never got a chance to prove that he can win as an outside receiver, but he’s shown more than enough from the slot to be a first-rounder. He led all receivers in broken tackles as a freshman in 2018.





    LB NICK BOLTON, MISSOURI


    1. Bolton won’t tick every box physically, but this is a guy you want in the middle of your defense. He led the SEC in defensive stops in each of the past two seasons.





    EDGE GREGORY ROUSSEAU, MIAMI (FL.)


    1. Yet another opt-out. Rousseau has the tools to be a top-five pick, but it’s hard to bank on him after only one year of college football. His absurd length and versatility will be a selling point for teams.





    CB JAYCEE HORN, SOUTH CAROLINA


    1. Horn has the athleticism and mindset of a man corner at the NFL level — he’s not going to back down from anyone. He allowed only eight catches from 24 targets for 116 yards across seven games this year.





    EDGE AZEEZ OJULARI, GEORGIA


    1. Ojulari was one of the biggest risers with his play in 2020. He’s the best pure speed rusher in the class and will threaten the edge against even the most athletic tackles in the league. He finished his redshirt sophomore season with a 91.7 pass-rushing grade.





    OT TEVEN JENKINS, OKLAHOMA STATE


    1. Jenkins was a full-grown man on the right side for the Cowboys. You won’t have to watch too many plays before finding a rep of him putting a defender in the turf. He allowed only four pressures on 211 pass-blocking snaps this season.





    WR ELIJAH MOORE, OLE MISS


    1. Moore became the focal point of Lane Kiffin's offense this past season and hauled in 1,193 yards in only eight games. He's an elite all-around athlete who could run any route asked of him from the slot at a high level. And from the handful of reps we did see from him on the outside, I'd be willing to dabble with him there in the league, as well.





    EDGE JAELAN PHILLIPS, MIAMI (FL.)


    1. Phillips' injury history will have to be thoroughly vetted, as he retired from the game altogether in 2018 due to concussions. Healthy and on a Miami line that allowed him the freedom to attack, Phillips showed why he was once a five-star recruit. He racked up 36 pressures over his final seven games.





    CB ASANTE SAMUEL JR., FLORIDA ST.


    1. Samuel was arguably college football's smoothest athlete at the position. He allowed only 179 yards in eight games and allowed a passer rating of only 46.2.





    IOL ALIJAH VERA TUCKER, USC


    1. Vera-Tucker’s quality play at tackle this past season made us feel even better about him on the inside. He earned an 81.8 overall grade and showed some fantastic ability to play in space.





    LB ZAVEN COLLINS, TULSA


    1. At 6-foot-4, 260 pounds, Collins isn’t your typical off-ball linebacker prospect. He dominates backs in blitz pickup and can chase them down in space, as well. His 91.1 overall grade this past season led all linebackers in college football.
      Quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends in the PFF NFL Draft Guide will have two heat maps showing routes run for the offense (quarterbacks) or routes the player ran (wide receivers, tight ends) and another heat map showing targets. Offensive linemen and most defensive players have a display of snaps played by alignment.





    WR KADARIUS TONEY, FLORIDA


    1. He’s neck and neck with the man two spots down from him on this list when it comes to owning the title of “the most dangerous player in the draft with the ball in his hands.” Toney's balance, flexibility and explosion are exceptional. He’s broken 32 tackles on 80 catches over the past two seasons.





    QB MAC JONES, ALABAMA


    1. There’s not one play or throw from Jones that will make you go “wow,” but play in and play out he’ll get the ball where it needs to go on time. While not super toolsy, his command of the offense and position is impressive.





    OT DILLON RADUNZ, NDSU


    1. Radunz tore his ACL early in his redshirt freshman campaign in 2017. He started every game for the Bison since then, with 24 career pressures allowed on 715 pass-blocking snaps. Radunz is undersized at his listed 299 pounds, and it's worrisome that it already showed up on tape against FCS competition. He doesn't have a naturally large frame and arrived at North Dakota State at only 265 pounds. If he can continue to fill out, Radunz has shown the explosiveness and agility to be a starting-caliber NFL tackle.





    IOL WYATT DAVIS, OHIO STATE


    1. Davis hasn’t been quite as consistent in 2020 as he was in 2019, but the talent is obviously still there. He’s allowed four sacks and hits combined over the past two seasons.





    OT SAMUEL COSMI, TEXAS


    1. Cosmi has been one of the most tested tackles in the country and has improved every single year of his career. He allowed all of eight pressures on 368 pass-blocking snaps this past season.





    OT ALEX LEATHERWOOD, ALABAMA


    1. Leatherwood is one of the best run-blockers in the country but still gives up the edge too much to be considered a first-rounder. He allowed 15 pressures this year after only allowing 10 in 2019.





    EDGE CARLOS BASHAM JR., WAKE FOREST


    1. Basham had a bit of a down year, but he notched 112 pressures in the two seasons prior. He’s a burly 285-pound edge who should be a pocket-pusher for years to come.





    RB TRAVIS ETIENNE, CLEMSON


    1. Etienne didn’t have his best season on the ground but reinvented himself as a vertical receiver. His 90.9 receiving grade and 588 receiving yards led all FBS running backs.





    OT WALKER LITTLE, STANFORD


    1. Little has played all of one game since 2018. There’s no reason why he couldn’t be a quality NFL tackle, given his physical tools, but he’s so far removed from playing the game that it’s difficult to assess.





    TE PAT FREIERMUTH, PENN STATE


    1. Freiermuth isn’t your dynamic field-stretcher, but he should dominate the middle of the field with his size and ball skills. He was a focal point of the Penn State offense in his four games this season, recording 23 catches on 37 targets for 310 yards.





    S AR'DARIUS WASHINGTON, TCU


    1. At 5-foot-8, 179 pounds, Washington is not going to fit your prototype at the position. Still, he’s the most instinctive safety in the entire draft class. He allowed all of 157 yards in his coverage over two seasons as a starter.

    PFF's 2021 NFL Draft Guide contains a full list of pros/cons, a long-form written analysis above a bar chart of stable PFF metrics and Mike Renner's “Bottom Line” and “NFL Draft Projection” for every prospect in the guide.

    IOL LANDON DICKERSON, ALABAMA

    The ACL tear Dickerson suffered in the SEC title game, along with past injury history, will scare teams off. His tape was as dominant as we've seen at the center position this past year, though. He earned a 91.3 overall grade.

    QB KYLE TRASK, FLORIDA

    The stats are out of this world, but the two men from Florida above Trask on this list are a big reason why. His relative lack of production outside the pocket and his performance against Oklahoma in the bowl game will be big knocks on him.

    LB JABRIL COX, LSU

    Across two different schools/schemes and one week of practice at the Senior Bowl, Cox has proven one thing wholesale: the man can cover. He was the only linebacker to break up multiple passes in the one-on-ones at the Senior Bowl, and he had four throughout the week.

    WR TERRACE MARSHALL, LSU

    A massive catch radius combined with legit speed is a recipe for success. He's still skinny but is also still young at only 20 years old.

    DI ALIM MCNEIL, N.C. STATE

    McNeil has the potential to be the holy grail — a nose tackle who can rush the passer. He’s got one of the best first steps in the entire draft class, even though he weighs 320 pounds. He earned grades of 80.8 and 77.5 as a pass-rusher the past two seasons — mostly from a true 0-tech alignment.

    OT JACKSON CARMAN, CLEMSON

    While Carman has been a bit up and down over the past two seasons, evaluators will keep coming back to his tape against Ohio State this year. On 49 pass-blocking snaps — most coming when Clemson obviously had to pass in the second half — against two NFL-caliber defensive ends, Carman allowed all of one pressure.

    S ELIJAH MOLDEN, WASHINGTON

    Molden is another guy who won’t win any weigh-in but has the type of game that’s difficult to poke holes in. He allowed only 11 catches for 65 yards across 18 targets in four games this past season.

    S RICHIE GRANT, UCF

    There may not be that one thing Grant is elite at, but at the same time, there are almost no weaknesses go his game. He's lined up everywhere imaginable in UCF's defense and continued to produce.

    CB TAY GOWAN, UCF

    Gowan is a speedster with the height and length to challenge taller wide receivers. That gives you a lot of room for error at the cornerback position. Not that he made many of those in 2019 before opting out, as he allowed only 20 catches from 50 targets for 274 yards all season.

    CB TYSON CAMPBELL, GEORGIA

    Campbell is an ultra-smooth athlete who is still only scratching the surface of what he could be. Zone teams will love the fact that he’s missed only six tackles on 99 attempts in his career.

    WR DYAMI BROWN, NORTH CAROLINA

    Brown was primarily a deep threat in North Carolina's offense. His 18.4-yard average depth of target was the second-highest among Power 5 receivers. Don't let that fool you, though, as he's got the route-running chops to be far more than a one-trick pony.

    OT LIAM EICHENBERG, NOTRE DAME

    Eichenberg is such a clean tackle prospect. He allowed only 27 total pressures and no sacks over the past two seasons.

    CB AARON ROBINSON, UCF

    Robinson was a bully in the slot over his career at UCF. The way UCF played him there shouldn't worry many about him transitioning to outside corner, as he took 177 snaps in press coverage this past season — a very high number from the slot.

    S JEVON HOLLAND, OREGON

    All Holland did was produce, whether it was as a safety (freshman year) or slot corner (sophomore year). Before opting out, Holland collected 11 pass breakups and nine picks at Oregon.

    EDGE PAYTON TURNER, HOUSTON

    Turner has an ideal edge build and the physicality to boot. He was pretty much unblockable in the four games before getting hurt in 2020, earning a 90.0 pass-rushing grade.

    RB JAVONTE WILLIAMS, NORTH CAROLINA

    Williams is fresh off the single most impressive tackle-breaking season we've ever graded. He broke 76 tackles on only 157 attempts for the Tar Heels.

    S ANDRE CISCO, SYRACUSE

    Cisco is a straight-up roller coaster at the safety position. With 4.3 speed, Cisco notched 26 combined picks and pass breakups in 24 career games. He also gave up six touchdowns in nine games in 2019 before tearing his ACL two games into 2020.

    CB GREG NEWSOME, NORTHWESTERN

    Newsome looked like a different player on the 387 snaps we saw from him as a junior in 2020. He only allowed 12 catches from 34 targets for 93 yards all season.

    EDGE RONNIE PERKINS, OKLAHOMA

    Perkins is the only edge in the class who can boast a run-defense and pass-rushing grade over 90.0 this past season. He's a speed-rusher that recorded four-plus pressures in each of his final five games this season.

    LB JUSTIN HILLIARD, OHIO STATE

    Hilliard never played more than 231 snaps in a season for the Buckeyes, but he never played bad football for them, either. He earned an 82.3 overall grade on 494 career snaps.

    DI MARVIN WILSON, FLORIDA STATE

    Wilson was not the same player we saw in 2019 this past season after dropping weight to 305 pounds. He's just not much of an athlete for the position, but the guy who earned a 90.7 overall grade back in 2019 is still there somewhere.
    PFF's 2021 NFL Draft Guide contains a full list of pros/cons, a long-form written analysis above a bar chart of stable PFF metrics and Mike Renner's “Bottom Line” and “NFL Draft Projection” for every prospect in the guide.

    CB IFEATU MELIFONWU, SYRACUSE

    Melifonwu has some freaky tools for a corner who stands 6-foot-3, 213 pounds. He never earned lower than a 74.1 coverage grade in three years of playing time.

    EDGE JOSEPH OSSAI, TEXAS

    Ossai flourished in his first year as an every-down pass-rusher in 2020. He earned an 80.5 pass-rushing grade and an 81.1 run-defense grade across 588 snaps in nine games.

    DI DAVIYON NIXON, IOWA

    Nixon started the season like a house on fire, with seven pressures against Purdue then 10 stops against Northwestern. His tape toward the end of the year didn't come close to matching that effectiveness, however.

    RB NAJEE HARRIS, ALABAMA

    Harris has some of the best ball skills you'll ever see from a running back, with three drops on 83 catchable passes over his career. He's got bell-cow written all over him.

    S PARIS FORD, PITTSBURGH

    Ford is a tad undersized for a safety, but he consistently plays bigger than the 190 pounds he's listed at. He's a converted corner with six picks and nine pass breakups in two years at safety.

    IOL CREED HUMPHREY, OKLAHOMA

    Humphrey is one of the most proven centers in the country, with over 2,400 career snaps and three straight quality seasons to his name. He's got the size to play anywhere on the interior.

    OT JALEN MAYFIELD, MICHIGAN

    Mayfield was a tackle at Michigan but is a likely candidate to kick inside to guard in the NFL. He's one of the most explosive linemen in the class.

    WR TYLAN WALLACE, OKLAHOMA ST.

    Wallace's career production is second to none in the class. He's averaged over 100 yards a game since the start of 2018. He's got track speed and has consistently produced downfield.

    RB MICHAEL CARTER, NORTH CAROLINA

    Carter is fresh off a dominant 2020 season that showed a complete skill set despite being listed at only 199 pounds. His biggest selling point may be what he can do as a receiver after gaining 267 yards on 25 receptions this past season.

    DI TYLER SHELVIN, LSU

    Shelvin is a sure thing in the run game as long as he can keep his weight under control. He earned an 88.3 run-defense grade as a redshirt sophomore for the national champs in 2019 before opting out this past year.

    CB ERIC STOKES, GEORGIA

    Stokes now has three seasons of quality tape. For his career, Stokes has allowed only a 53.4% completion percentage in his coverage.

    DI OSA ODIGHIZUWA, UCLA

    Odighizuwa is on the smaller side for a defensive tackle, but don't let that fool you into thinking he won't hold up against the run. He's been as stout as it gets in that regard for three straight seasons as a starter.
    Quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends in the PFF NFL Draft Guide will have two heat maps showing routes run for the offense (quarterbacks) or routes the player ran (wide receivers, tight ends) and another heat map showing targets. Offensive linemen and most defensive players have a display of snaps played by alignment.

    DI LEVI ONWUZURIKE, WASHINGTON

    Onwuzurike has the first-step quicks to be a difference-maker at the position, but we never quite saw him put it all together. He earned an 82.5 grade his final season for the Huskies in 2019 before opting out.

    OT JAMES HUDSON, CINCINNATI

    Hudson only has one year as a starter under his belt, but he routinely flashed high-end traits. He helped his cause out with an impressive Senior Bowl week, as well.

    DI TOMMY TOGIAI, OHIO STATE

    Togiai only has seven games as a starter under his belt, but that's how impressive they were. He averaged over three pressures a game this past season and took over in the run game against Clemson in the playoff.

    RB KENNETH GAINWELL, MEMPHIS

    Gainwell is an exceptional receiver who could probably play the slot full-time if he wanted to. He had over 200 yards against Tulane in 2019 and opted out in 2020.

    EDGE DAYO ODEYINGBO, VANDERBILT

    Odeyingbo is one of the most versatile defensive linemen in the class, with a body type and quicks to win from anywhere. Unfortunately, he tore his Achilles in January.

    S JAMIEN SHERWOOD, AUBURN

    Sherwood is a big, explosive safety who will be coveted by man-coverage teams. At 6-foot-2, 220 pounds, he can line up just about anywhere.

    CB THOMAS GRAHAM JR., OREGON

    Graham was a three-year starter before opting out in 2020. He doesn't have high-end athletic traits, but he held up as well as any corner in the one-on-ones at the Senior Bowl.

    WR CADE JOHNSON, SOUTH DAKOTA STATE

    Johnson dominated FCS competition for multiple seasons before 2020 got canceled. He proved it was no fluke by earning the highest grade of any receiver in the one-on-ones at the Senior Bowl.

    EDGE RASHAD WEAVER, PITTSBURGH

    Weaver is a big, long, NFL-ready edge. He's a limited athlete but wins with his hands and play strength.

    LB JAMIN DAVIS, KENTUCKY

    Davis is a bit of a one-year wonder, but he's got the length and athleticism that are coveted at the position. He racked up 36 stops in 10 games this past season.

    EDGE JOE TRYON, WASHINGTON

    Tryon is a long, explosive edge who never quite put it all together before opting out in 2020. He only earned a 71.9 pass-rushing grade back in 2019.

    WR JAELON DARDEN, NORTH TEXAS

    Darden is a jitterbug slot receiver at 5-foot-9, 174 pounds. He racked up big play after big play in 2020, with 19 scores on 74 catches. Good luck even touching him in space.

    CB SHAKUR BROWN, MICHIGAN STATE

    Brown burst onto the scene with a number of awe-inspiring interceptions this past season. He is a playmaker with seven picks on only 79 career targets.

    LB CHAZZ SURRATT, NORTH CAROLINA

    Surratt is a weapon as a blitzer and plays with an uncoachable recklessness into contact. He's still a project in the run game, though, after switching to linebacker in 2019.

    IOL BEN CLEVELAND, GEORGIA

    Cleveland has quite the proven history in pass protection. Over the past three years, he's allowed only 13 pressures on 606 pass-blocking snaps. He's an enormous human being who tipped the scales at 354 pounds at the Senior Bowl.

    CB BENJAMIN ST-JUSTE, MINNESOTA

    St-Juste has the size and length profile certain schemes will love with an over 80-inch wingspan. He was also the highest-graded cornerback in the one-on-ones at the Senior Bowl.

    EDGE CAMERON SAMPLE, TULANE

    Sample has inside-outside versatility at 6-foot-3, 280 pounds. He's a power player who can win with his hands and earned a 90.4 pass-rushing grade in 2020.

    CB RACHAD WILDGOOSE, WISCONSIN

    Wildgoose has man-coverage movement skills and athleticism. He was just in a zone-heavy scheme manning the slot at Wisconsin.

    RB KHALIL HERBERT, VIRGINIA TECH

    Herbert was a man possessed in 2020, averaging 4.7 yards after contact per attempt for the Hokies. He's built low to the earth and is one of the best tackle-breakers in the class.

    TE BREVIN JORDAN, MIAMI (FL.)

    Jordan is a dynamic threat with the ball in his hands, but it far from a nuanced route-runner or inline blocker. He broke 21 tackles on 105 catches in his Miami career.

    CB TRE BROWN, OKLAHOMA

    Brown may be short at 5-foot-9, but he's got the speed and physicality to make up for it. He allowed only 21 catches on 44 targets for 266 yards in 2020.

    S HAMSAH NASIRILDEEN, FLORIDA STATE

    Nasirildeen has great size for the position at 6-foot-4, 220 pounds. He's just not particularly explosive. He's a smooth zone defender that's been a terrific tackler in his career.

    RB DEMETRIC FELTON, UCLA

    Felton is a running back-receiver hybrid that can be a mismatch nightmare for defenses. He ran with the wide receivers at the Senior Bowl and didn't look out of place.

    QB DAVIS MILLS, STANFORD

    Mills has only 10 career starts to his name but already showed a lot of NFL-translatable skills. He gets the ball out of his hands quickly with a 2.43-second average time to throw for his career.

    WR AMON-RA ST. BROWN, USC

    St. Brown had a lackluster junior year when asked to play outside full-time. He's got good ball skills and is tough after the catch, but he struggled to separate deep consistently.

    I’m still having visions of striking out on RTs in free agency and taking slater at 5. Really my worst case scenario at this point.

    As much as I don’t like Bobby Hart, I think I’d rather have one more year of Bobby and a different top 5 pick vs drafting slater at 5.

    I really want a blue chipper type player that we will rarely have a chance at again. I hope that after this year we don’t draft top 5 for the next decade with burrow. If we do things right we won’t have another chance at a top 5 guy in the draft for a while.

    Slater to me isn’t a blue chipper. He’s a solid prospect that is a Jonah Williams type that you can usually get in the 10-20 range. That’s still very good but it’s not a top 5 guy.

    My second worst case scenario is taking a CB at 5. I just don’t think letting Jackson walk and drafting a CB at 5 moves the needle that much. If anything it just treads water from last year. Sewell, chase, pitts, waddle, smith are all guys that would move the needle and give us something we didn’t have last year.

    Worth noting, PFN lists Slater as a guard.

    In fact, the #3 OG.

    32 3/4" arm length is rather suspect.

    I understand why Slater is lower down, and listed as a guard. I’m admittedly surprised he’s only the #3 guard.

    Value craters if projected inside. Vera-Tucker was listed only a few spots ahead of Slater. Same draft profile.

    Both would be interesting 2nd round options if there's a run on DE prospects.

    More likely a team overdrafts them to see if they can play OT.
