Reviewing The 2017 NFL Draft in 2018: #1 Myles Garrett, CLE vs. #16 Marlon Humphrey, BAL

Reviewing The 2017 NFL Draft in 2018: #1 Myles Garrett, CLE vs. #16 Marlon Humphrey, BAL

  

We have a football season in the books and now we can look back and try to evaluate or re-evaluate the 2017 NFL Draft…and kinda re-remember what seemed important about a year ago – ultimately, to judge what would be done differently today or where teams made mistakes.

I like doing these types of things in head-to-head battles because it forces me to consider a simple choice…A or B. I can focus on the two players, get reacquainted with their 2017 season and pick the one I would select if I were an NFL GM today. I look at it like I’m starting an expansion franchise…so, I want the best player, obviously, but I have to consider positional scarcity and history, etc.

We’ll do one matchup per day in February until we crown a winner. Set up tournament style with 1-32 seed, and #1 facing #32 first round, etc.

 

#1 Myles Garrett, CLE vs. #16 Marlon Humphrey, BAL

This is an easier choice for the #1 seed in the 2nd-round. It was tough decision between Myles Garrett and pick #32 Ryan Ramczyk in the 1st-round…a near 50-50 coin flip.

But I’ll easily take Garrett in a re-do over Marlon Humphrey, who we see as an average-to-good cornerback with flaws. Garrett is more ‘freak’ than Humphrey would ever be. Garrett showed some of that promise in his rookie season, while Humphrey showed he was OK/capable.

Several top 10 picks from 2017 already got bounced in the 1st-round, but Garrett is hanging in there. This choice was pretty simple, but looking ahead…it’s going to be a lot tougher decisions to make in this round of 16.
