It’s time for my first draft mailbag of the season. For each mailbag, I’ll be taking anywhere from five to eight questions about the draft and answering them here on Snack Time Fantasy. I’m eager to answer some of your questions! Let’s get started!
Yes, but there is just one back I’d consider to be a first-round talent: Alabama’s Joshua Jacobs. Jacobs possesses an excellent combination of balance, agility, burst, and explosiveness. It’s mind-boggling that he was stuck deep on the Tide’s depth chart. Whenever Jacobs has the ball in his hands, he’s tough to stop. He’ll run by you with his quickness and burst or run over you with aggression and power. I think he can go as high as Top 20 but I think Kansas City is a very intriguing option late in the first round.
I’ve been thinking about this. I’m wanting to lean with Dwayne Haskins…but I got to go with Kyler Murray.
Here’s the thing: size is going to be the no-brainer con for Murray heading into the draft. However, this dude screams unreal potential. Great accuracy to go along with a great arm as well. In my opinion, his poise is second to none in this class, plus he’s an elite and smart runner of the football. I think today’s NFL is going to be excited to potentially hav Murray as a starting QB for a franchise.
Omenihu has a scary combination of length, speed and explosiveness. He can wreck your offensive line whether it’s from a 1-tech or 5-tech. Nelson shows great physical traits on film and is one of the better run defenders in the EDGE group. Both players will be participating in the Senior Bowl next week in Mobile, Alabama.
I haven’t watched little to any of Jalen Jelks so I apologize for not having an opinion on him just yet. Chase Winovich is gonna be the perfect rotational player for your pass rushers. I love his hustle and fight on every snap. He’s got limitations to his game but he’s a hell of a ball player.
As a Panthers fan, Quinnen Williams to Tampa Bay and Ed Oliver to Atlanta would scare me. Williams is basically Gerald McCoy 2.0 and if McCoy were to get cut, Williams would fill that void fairly easily. If Atlanta were to somehow resign Grady Jarrett then draft Ed Oliver, that’s a scary defensive line in Atlanta.
