    Probably my favorite pick besides the CB from Kentucky... DW4 throwing to him is going to ELEVATE his game and Ryan Griffin is a step slower than this guy which means this guy is going to be able to get out and BLOCK when DW4 decides to run!
    I'm expecting a similar season to season 1 for Deshaun...


    Not only do you got KEKE, you got Warring... AND, a half decent (IMO) Offensive Line trending upwards with a veteran presence...

    Just worried about my RB Corps is all...

    He is definitely fast out of the blocks. A target that can get open and uncover quickly when DW4 needs to make a hot read.

    This kid is going to break all kinds of Records!
    It's kind of a good thing that Gronk retired. He was going to get shown up anyway.

    What?!.. Jordan Thomas was a damn steal in the 6th round. He's going to be a damn good player himself..

    Now Akins in the 3rd last year, yeah.. I could've done without that crap.

    LZ had Thomas as a 6-7 and Akin as 7-udfa. Another reach by the OB/Gaine regime.

    Yeah Gaines doesn't do so well in the earlier rounds but I actually think that's a good strategy because you don't wanna be paying TOP TIER TALENT in 4 years when you've got DW4 and DHOPS contract.. while simultaneously trying to pay Clowney when you've already lost MAJOR value on the JJ Watt contract...not to mention the FA signing like Aaron Colvin which had me like...#(*&$(&#&(&#...

    I kept hoping he would get fired and his successor would draft more ….

    I've decided Warring is my favorite pick in this draft. And I like the value at several spots with Scharping/Omenihu/Crawford where they were picked. But this pick reminds me of the Justin Reid pick last draft.

    2018 - Tons of greater needs on the roster. Team just signed Honey Badger, plans to move K Jax to safety and Hal a solid option as well... but Justin Reid is BPA at pick. Take Reid and he shows elite potential year 1. Fast forward to year 2 none of the options ahead of him in HB, K Jax and Hal are on the team anymore and Reid is the rising star of the DB unit. Had they gone strictly for need they would have no doubt taken a lesser player to fulfill the quick fix.

    2019 - Again tons of greater needs still to be addressed. Albeit they hit on the biggest ones with 1st/two 2nds. But could still say TE is a position to feel safe about with the Jordans/Griffin/Fells... but Warring is BPA at pick. Hopefully now that we took Warring he shows the same level of potential year 1 as Reid did! I like the Jordans long term potential but not enough to pass on a player with Kelce/Kittle/Ertz upside in the 3rd. Griffin has been replacement level for a couple seasons now and Fells is a stopgap blocking specialist to help keep DW4 in one piece until the young OTs/TEs show they can adequately protect him when called upon.

    Warring can catch, Warring can block... Warring walks into NRG being the best TE on the roster. And i'm excited to see if OB finally opens up the playbook for the TEs like he did when he had the talent in NE with Gronk/Hernandez. I still like the Jordans (and I think the team does too). I just like Warring better. The position should be secured for years now and i'm excited to see what DW4 can do with them!

    Accomplished safety v potential. Not seeing the comparison. DeMeco & Reid makes sense. Footballers that fell to where it's just stupid not to take them.

    And yet Warring’s production was in-line with Hockenson’s as a % of the passing offense when taking into account the team’s run heavy nature (also why he’s more developed as a blocker than any TE on roster minus Fells). Same concept as why Kittle’s production was high in college as percentage of team’s passing offense. A lot more than just a dismissive “potential” tag here but I get your role is to play devil’s advocate on this forum.

    Warring is also a good route runner. But, because of the system he was in, he is not a proven pass blocker.

    I found this little tidbit:

    Great lists

    Etienne and pno of the Alabama Wr's would look great on Kirby. I also really like Reagor alot. A great replacement if WFV can't stay healthy.
