Official 2019 Draft First Round Thread

Recommended Posts

OK, a replacement for Whit, he's solid. Hope we didn't get any calls for a trade and I'll be pissed if Haskins goes in the next couple rounds via trade.

Pre-Draft Analysis

Williams gets set quickly and handles speed off the edge relatively effortlessly, even though he has below-average arm length for an offensive tackle. He does a good job of sinking his hips and anchoring against speed-to-power. He gets into sound position and gets good initial pop in the running game.

 

Our kind of boy

:ninja:

 

Excellent pick.  First OL taken, pick of the litter.

Now maybe we can not worry about that position for another decade.

When has a Big Ten QB did anything in the NFL?  Drew Brees? Griese? Pass!

Or take another one in round 2 & we'll be 3/5ths of the way to having an NFL offensive line!

I'm with you re: Haskins, it's all OSU homer hype around here.

FWIW,Pro Football Weekly had him going in the top five and rated him as their number one OT.

Lapham said he wanted Dillard IF this guy wasn't available, thought he would be gone.

Would like to hear what Laph will say now.  I bet he's going bonkers.

Knowing Lapham he was probably screaming incoherently. :lol:

Not a sexy pick,but possibly the best player at this position at a spot where we have no depth.

Yeah, just the best OT in the draft for a team without a healthy starter-quality OT on the roster.  :34_rolling_eyes:

Still boring.

With two in front of us I wanted Oliver,Bush,and Williams in that order.At least the stealers didn't get him cheap.

Well you're entitled to your opinion but it makes you sound like someone that watches the SB for the commercials.  :P
