The NFL Draft is usually where playoff teams are built and for some teams, bad drafts are where bad teams are built, ask the Cleveland Browns of the past. Today we are going to look at what teams may have made a huge mistake in this year’s draft.
5) The Packers and Vikings pass on CB Josh Jackson – The Packers and Vikings picked Jaire Alexander and Mike Hughes respectively and while I think they will be good NFL players they won’t be as good as Iowa’s Josh Jackson and in the end, they both will wish they had picked Jackson.
4) Seahawks didn’t have the luxury to pick a Running Back – The Seahawks need offensive lineman and defensive health so why pick a running back with your first pick of the first round? Of course, this is the same team that has two of the worst coordinators in football, so maybe this should come as no surprise? Pete Carroll seems hell-bent on being fired in the next year or two.
3) New Orleans Saints give up too much for Davenport – Marcus Davenport looks great against inferior competition but if you watch his film you will find a player who is basically just a speed rusher with very few moves. Davenport with good coaching could turn out to be a good player but the risk is not worth the reward in this situation.
2) The 49ers reach for an offensive lineman – The Niners ended the season on a hot-streak and I know the fans are excited but McGlinchey is a tackle that benefited big-time from playing alongside Quenton Nelson. McGlinchey has strength issues and feet issues. I do think he could turn into a good player but picking him with the ninth pick in this draft is a huge overreach by 49ers G.M. John Lynch. With that being said I think the 49ers did really well in the rest of the draft. I just think the first pick was a mistake.
1) The Bills trade up for Josh Allen – This is a team that could be in trouble. Number one for some reason they signed center Russell Bodine in the off-season, then to make matters worse they signed Quarterback A.J. McCarron who will never be more than an adequate back up in the NFL. Now they add a young Quarterback that is probably two years away from being a productive starter at best. I think there is no way this will be a playoff team this year.
