Default Who Is Going to Drop This Year?

Every year there seems to be a player who's talked about being a high pick, but falls for whatever reasons. Who do you all think that player(s) might be this year? I think it'll be Trent Richardson of Alabama. No doubt he's a great back, but running back is one of those positions where you can find better value in the later rounds. Most people are guessing that he goes to Cleveland, but I don't see it happening really. He could be a big play guy for their offense (they need it), but like I mentioned I think they can pick up someone in the later rounds. I think what the Browns do with their pick will have a big impact on the rest of the first round.

Richardson would not go past the Jets I don't think.

Default Re: Who Is Going to Drop This Year?

I don't think Richardson gets past the Bucs, he's a top 10 talent for sure. I think the faller this year will be Kendall Wright. A lot of people have him pegged as a top 15-20 prospect, but I just get the impression that he's going to fall out of the 1st round in favor of bigger WRs like Hill, Floyd and Randel.

This could still happen but it's less likely since he did well at his Pro-Day. My choice is Coples. All the talent in the world but there are questions about his motor and his play during his senior year.

My guess is Dontari Poe. He had a monster combine, but I think he will fall.

No way Poe falls IMO. If anything someone might reach big for him.

I think Kendall wright could fall out of the first round. I can see teams picking Jeffrey and hill over him.

I think Kirkpatrick could fall too.

Default Re: Who Is Going to Drop This Year?

To me it seems like the guys who typically fall are the guys who were solid college players but don't have necessarily elite athletic ability, or don't fit the prototypical mold for their position. An example would be Kendall Wright, who is a smaller WR in a draft where all the other guys are bigger.

This isn't always the case but that appears to be the pattern to me.

Guys like Poe and Stephen Hill are almost always the guys who rise dramatically and get taken really high. Tremendous athlete who is a huge risk but with the potential for a huge payoff.

Default Re: Who Is Going to Drop This Year?

Luke Kuechly ILB Boston College
more of a wrap up tackler. Doesn't make enough plays at or behind line of scrimage.

Michael Brockers DT LSU
Most over rated guy in draft.

Melvin Ingram DE South Carolina
Just get the feeling he wont be as good in pros as projected

Devon Still DT Penn State
Can't believe there is still talk of this guy in the first round.

Courtney Upshaw LB Alabama
Not explosive enough to go top 20 like most think.

Peter Konz C Wisconsin
Position and lack of strength will make him fall.




RISERS guys who I think could go first round

Brandon Thompson DT Clemson

Kevin Zeitler OG Wisconsin

Shea McClellin LB Boise State

Kelechi Osemele G/T Iowa State

Kirk Cousins QB Michigan State

I agree with Dutchrudder and Rey, Kendall Wright is my pick to fall to the 2nd round. His size and very small hands willl drop him.

I think Richardson. No way I ever take a RB in top ten, if at all in the first round. Just not as good of a value. Guys like Poe, Tannehill, Hill, ect will also be reached on.

I also dont care for T Rich that much. RB class is weak and Richardson is the best of the misfits.

I disagree. Richardson is better than Ingram, in my opinion.

RB isn't one of the most valued positions anymore but Richardson is far from just being the tallest midget.
