The Official 2021 4th – 7th Rounds Draft Thread !!!


Recommended Posts

From NFL network:

Overview
Sample is a short-stepper with hip tightness and wasn't able to convert enough pressures into sacks while playing outside. However, his skilled rush attacks and short-area footwork could give him advantages on the interior, where he can take more of a straight-line approach to the quarterback. He has quick hands and good upper-body strength, but it's not a lock he'll get used to battling NFL wide-bodies inside, despite his physical nature and toughness. Sample should become a solid, scheme-diverse defender with the ability to play strong-side end on early downs and reduce inside as a rusher. There could be teams who see him as a smaller three-technique if he can carry the weight.
Strengths
  • Potential to play a variety of spots in both odd and even fronts.
  • Carries naturally thick frame with good play strength.
  • Plus length with big hands.
  • Heavy-handed strikes lift and jostle opponents.
  • Good anticipation of and reaction to play direction.
  • Efficient and fluid as a pass rusher.
  • Basketball feet create separation and open edges as a rusher.
  • Varies his rush plans and has impressive repertoire of go-to moves.
  • Stick-and-move mentality with his hands.
  • Consistent effort and production over the last three years.
  • Can physically batter weaker opponents.
Weaknesses
  • Skilled rusher, but lacks impressive closing burst.
  • Tight hips restrict change of direction.
  • Allows blockers to close the distance on him.
  • Head-ducker into first contact as run defender.
  • Slow to separate from clenches.
  • Lacks agility and acceleration as open-field tackler.
  • Struggles to anchor once angle blocks start moving him.
  • Would like to see him gain consistent control at the point of attack.

At receiver, we have Chase, Higgins, Boyd, Tate, Thomas & Morgan..  I'd rather not have more than one slot going to Thomas/Morgan.

 

There are several WR's I wouldn't mind.

Cade Johnson

Jaelon Darden

Amin-Ra St. Brown

Tylan Wallace

Marquez Stevenson

Mike Strachen

Josh Imatorbhebhe

 

I'd use the 7th on a PK (Jose Borregales or Evan McPherson).  Yeah, you could easily sign a UFA, but if you use the 7th pick, you can get the one you want without bidding.  Best chance or finding a "starter" that late in the draft. 

 

There's also Tommy Togiai, Justin Hilliard & Shaun Wade are candidates to be the annual Buckeye.

Love Jaelon Darden. He is maybe my favorite palyer left.
