Yeah, shouldn't have to wait until the 20s to see them picked.

I would add Fromm to the QB list. He disappointed a bit last year, but I think he has the tools to make a junior year leap and be an NFL QB.

Random notes:

I would add Jake Fromm, D’Andre Swift, and Travis Etienne to your list of draft eligible players to watch.

The 2019 WR class was super deep, but this class has such better star power with Jeudy, Shenault, and CeeDee Lamb.

Grant Delpit (Safety/LSU), Bryce Hall (CB/Virginia), and Kristian Fulton (CB/LSU) are all DBs I’ll have my eye on.

Also keep an eye out for Yetur Gross-Matos from Penn State. Guy seemed to live in opposing backfields last year.

Still think Herbert made the wrong decision and will slide in 2020.

Herbert is tough to get a read on. I think he needed seasoning. He has the tools but he doesn't actually perform well right now. Too many did games IMO.

But if Daniel Jones can go #6, then who knows where Herebert would have gone?

Iowa's two OTs could declare early if they have good years: Alaric Jackson and Tristan Wirfs. If they declare it means they will both have had great years and I would expect both to be round 2 at worst, with Jackson right now could be middle of round 1.

I think you’re missing Oklahoma’s Center. I don’t know anything about him but they talked about him a bunch as a 2020 first rounder during the draft this weekend.

Has returning to school ever worked out for a QB? I’m trying to think of an example outside of Andrew Luck and I can’t think of one off the top of my head.

Dobbins needs to get back to 2017 form before he’s considered anything noteworthy. I know he was splitting carries, but he didn’t seem to make the most of his carries at all.

Just a tad bit better QB class, maybe.

Probably, but Tua and Herbert are going to get picked apart like crazy. Both will probably be drafted lower than they should, kind of like Deshaun Watson.

I think a lot of teams will be looking for a QB after this season compared to 2019 which should prop them up nicely.

I'm giving you guys the responsibility to make sure I know about players from this draft. It's been about 5 years since I've really been knowledgeable. Keep me updated.
