I think you just did. Nice work!
Now do Fautanu.

Edit for link to source:


I have Mitchell and Thomas Jr as roughly equal. To me it comes down to team preference. I do think Thomas Jr will be more ready for his role but I also don't think Mitchell is some long play project. Just might be an extra year for Mitchell to become dominant. I think he can be used and useful Year 1.

I think Mitchell can come in and have a Rice-esque first year, maybe a bit better...I think he's absolutely built, esp. in this offense, to come in and be a contributor day one.

I like Mitchell as a prospect more than Rice but he won't get the volume that Rashee got here.

Because Rice will also already be on roster for some games plus Hollywood.

Rice had everyone else at WR on the Chiefs puke at the same time last year.

Rice was slated to have a big role regardless. You could tell by how much work he was getting in the preseason.

Which is precisely why I am fine with waiting until R2 for WR.

We don't have a Rashee Rice at LT, let alone a Hollywood Brown. We're better situated at WR than OT by a pretty fair amount, IMO.

Tez Walker is definitely overlooked here. 18 TD’s last 2 years. Ideal WR size and speed. May be a long strider but he’s not MVS. Tez has done a lot of things for UNC. Screens, end arounds, a ton of deep vertical stuff and also a lot of intermediate plays for YAC.

To me he and Legette feel like picks the Chiefs would make in rd 2.

UNC is like Florida, WR graveyard for the NFL.

Still have Dyami Brown flashbacks when he was the last WR to come out of there that everyone was drooling over.

Chris Simms even put JAGami over Jaylen Waddle.

In all fairness, the same was said of Texas Tech before a certain QB recently was drafted from there.

I could see that. He's not "my guy" but I think that's a reasonable ceiling projection for him.

True, but the comparisons of Mahomes to Graham Harrell or Kliff Kingsbury were stupid. And it was more of a Air Raid guys can't play in the NFL criticism than Tech itself.


I haven't looked that into Tez Walker so someone will have to explain how he is light years better than JAGami Brown.

NC receivers have been overdrafted and disappointing recently.

Josh Downs had almost 800 yards last year as a good rookie WR from UNC and Tez is better than him

Tez Walker is going to get games where he is targeted 15 times?


If so sign me up.

ESPN content producer @PaulHembo calculated the percentage of 1st-round picks that “hit” or “miss,” based upon whether that player signed a second contract with the team that drafted them.

The data encompasses the 20 drafts spanning 2000-2019. Here are the positional hit rates: pic.twitter.com/mSannLz6OC
