2020 NFL Draft -- Fourth Round Commentary…

2020 NFL Draft -- Fourth Round Commentary…

 

Comments in no particular order…

 

 -- The 49ers traded for top OT Trent Williams/WAS…giving up a 5th-round pick (2020) and a 3rd-round pick (2021).

So…

The best team in the NFC got a top offensive tackle, for about nothing.

AND

The poorly run Redskins wouldn’t trade Williams last year, got nothing for him in 2019…nor did he play. They wasted a year, had value decline -- all to give him away for nice draft picks…but ones that they’ll probably butcher, so it's like getting nothing for him.

The Washington Redskins everybody!!!

This move probably clinched a return trip to the Super Bowl for the 49ers.

 

 -- On top of the wasting of Trent Williams, I’m watching the Redskins collect weak character/IQ guys after they took Chase Young – they added sketchy Antonio Gibson and Saahdig Charles…which are potentially setting draft picks on fire, a quick burnout waste.

The Washington Redskins everybody!!!

 

 -- Josh Kelley to the Chargers…the ‘power’ RB for LAC to go with Austin Ekeler as a pairing. Kelley will be the short yardage, 10-15+ carry a game guy on an offense that will be one of the worst in the NFL under Tyrod Taylor…with Tyrod stealing some short TD runs from Kelley.

Kelley is going to ‘start’ and get touches…and he is good…but this is a bad spot for FF upside in 2020 under Anthony Lynn. It’s going to be more good than great with a probability of ‘OK’ early on.

 

 -- TE Albert O. to the Broncos? Think that hurts Noah Fant?

It does.

Did you also connect the dots that Albert O. was a star with Mizzu QB Drew Lock…current Denver QB?

Noah Fant big FF upside might have died this day…

The Denver offense is getting better treatment/built around Lock than any QB in the NFL seems to be getting…at least, the effort…a new center, two speed WRs (overrated WRs) and a top TE taken.

 

 -- Pittsburgh takes RB Anthony McFarland

Reconfirming that Jaylen Samuels is hated by Mike Tomlin on a level Darrell Henderson is hated by the Rams…for reasons unknown.

 

 -- My two best players taken 4th-round…

DT/DE James Lynch, Baylor…my 19th best player for the draft. He goes to the Vikings, where he’ll likely get buried for IDP purposes. Good+ NFL hand.

TE Colby Parkinson, Stanford…my #43 player for the draft, secretly one of my favorite players in this draft. I was initially cool to this landing spot but the more I think about it – it may be OK.

Wasted 2020 behind ancient Greg Olsen and then Will Dissly looms, but Parkinson is good enough to jump them quickly if he gets the chance…but more a 2021 guy.  

 

 -- Quick note…

I just noticed a semi important WR-s was missing off my WR-s rank and the Big Board – WR Kirk Merritt, Arkansas State. Crazy athletic, former Oregon player transferred to ASU after a Texas A&M transfer gone wrong. Off field issues/character concern. Won’t be drafted but is a possible gem UDFA to watch after.

He’s a 6+ grade for us. Would be a strong 7+ if he didn’t have all the character flags. Added to the WR-s board now, but not on the Big Board yet.
