    Not a bad late round pick for a player who has experience at all 5 positions along the line. Never heard of the kid but could be a nice depth piece for our oline

    I’ll be shocked if he’s not a PS guy. I just can’t see him cracking the 53 unless there are some injuries. He screams under the radar development guy that will easily clear waivers.

    I can’t understand why this team hates investing in safety! And I know they don’t think going into the season that the 2 safeties from Atlanta is the final piece!? I hope they get some safeties in the undrafted pool! If they don’t we’re in big trouble!

    MY total grade C to C+, with the Ball and Bohanna picks we could even drop down to a C-. Wright is a good player and should get a chance to play safety.

    ThrowuptheX88

    So we picked a 6th round corner as our best bet to become a safety , smh , agree with your grade J Young .

    I like the Parsons pick especially with the fact that both Horn and Surtain were gone

    Ok with the Joseph pick at 2 , lot of potential, but has some character concerns

    Nashon Wright was a big time reach , taking him over Meli and Ambry Thomas both are better prospects , but cuz Wright has the height and length DQ wants , we took him over those guys , sounds familiar

    Cox was a great value pick in 4th , gives us some much needed depth at LB which we need with LVE and his health concerns

    Ball pick was a head scratcher

    Fehoko was a decent pick in 5th

    I like the Bohanna pick more than other ppl do, he’s a cheap fix for our 1-tech , but there maybe a reason why it’s a cheap fix , “a get what you pay for” kind of reason

    Like the mukuamu pick in sixth round , this is where i look for guys that just fit what I’m wanting in my players such as CB or Safety , but the boys decided to do that 3 rounds earlier

    Ok pick with Matt Farniok

    Overall a MEHHHH draft , we didn’t address Safety except with the fact that we have to have one these Corners transition to Safety , which is easier said than done , and we only spent a sixth on DT though it’s the kind of DT we need , still though , would’ve liked to have seen us trade some of our picks to get another 2 rounder and maybe get McNeill then , or a Safety ,

    A C to C+ draft

    ThrowuptheX88

    Oops , idk why i didn’t include Osa , but they did get a DT though it isn’t the one i was wanting necessarily
