Saccopoo Memorial Draft Forum>Where are the impact players in this draft?
Couch-Potato 04:20 PM 03-27-2019
Have to admit that I'm not studying the draft this year the way I have in the past so take the following opinion with a grain of salt, but my overall sense is that there aren't many stand out impact guys in this class. So far only Bosa seems to jump off the page with praise from pundits, no QB seems to be a sure thing, and there are no skill players lighting up the board.

Who am I overlooking? Who are the elite players in the 2019 draft?

My opinion is this is the highly touted list:
EDGE: Bosa, Ferrell, Gary, Sweat, Allen, Burns
DT: Williams, Oliver, Wilkins, Simmons, Lawrence
LB: White, Bush
TE: Hockenson
OT: Dillard, Williams, Taylor
RB: Jacobs
QB: Haskins, Murray
CB: Williams

After that, it gets to be quite the clusterfuck but there's alot of good talent.

In the top 5. If you're not picking in that range, you're probably fucked. Once you get past the Bosa, Williams, Allen, Oliver group and White comes off the board it starts to dip pretty quick.

Pretty much.

Iíd move Murphy ahead of Williams at corner. No real elite safeties, but Ford/Bradbury might end up as elite IOL prospects.

Is the other Iowa TE - Fant - considered highly touted as well? I really liked his tape.

Also, no WR’s?

Awesome write up, thank you! Sounds like it will be a tough draft to find starters.

I heard there are 1 or 2 Centers that stand out talents in this years draft? Boring pick, but Mahomes is going to need a Center he can trust.

NO, not a tough draft to find starters. You said 'IMPACT PLAYERS'. As in stars.

It's a deep draft full of legit starter material.

depending on your team needs and scheme, there are day one starters into the 3rd round at several positions. Maybe further if you're in need of a running back, or if some guys with injury histories could stay healthy; like a Porter Gustin, for example.

There will be some WRís in rd 2/3 capable of making an impact.

Same for RB. Would love to grab one of them in the third.

That changes things alot. There's probably 50 of those, seriously. Draft is deep in some spots.

I'm pretty indifferent on this group

I wasnít challenging, more asking, as Iím just now starting to do my predraft research.

Thatís the vibe Iíve been getting, but I figured there would be at least one stud at that position?
