Round 1

Recommended Posts

They are trying to get value....meaning the players they want are not worth the 16th pick....but 22nd....yea...they can pay that price.

Bull, Max, they should have gotten a 2nd round pick if they were giving up a 5th.

 

I've no problem trading back, but they got hosed on the deal.

Theyre playing it smart I think depending who they pick at 25. Youve still got Ridley, Moore, Hurst, and Gesicki to pick from. Or, Lamar (I hope not) Jackson. I dont want a running Quarterback.

 

I like the trades back for this draft.

But they aren't getting pick value, a 4th and 5th round pick are not adding to this team needs unless they package them tomorrow to move up in the 2nd & 3rd. They desperately need a wide out, tight end and offensive linemen; starters.

Hurst's athletic career was on a different path at first, as the Pittsburgh Pirates drafted him in the 17th round for the 2012 Major League Draft as a pitcher. He spent two years at rookie ball in the Gulf Coast League (hitting .245 at first base in 2014) before trying to get back to football. Hurst walked on for the Gamecocks in the summer of 2015, playing in 12 games as a receiver and tight end, starting once, and making eight catches for 106 yards. He became a star in 2016, starting all 13 games at tight end and setting school records at the position for receptions (48) and yards (616) by consistently nabbing everything thrown his way and outmuscling defenders downfield (he scored one touchdown as well). Hurst was the first sophomore in USC history to be a team captain, albeit as a 23 year-old. The following year, he earned first-team All-SEC recognition by catching 44 passes for 559 yards and two touchdowns. Hurst had Tommy John surgery as an eighth-grader.

Analysis

Draft Projection
Round 1
NFL Comparison
Dallas Clark
Overview
Hurst's initial opportunity at athletic stardom came up short in baseball, but he has his second shot and plays like every down could be his last. His fearless play demeanor combined with size, strength and athleticism make him a well-rounded prospect with the versatility to line up all over the field. He's sure-handed and could become a young quarterback's safety blanket if he improves elements of his route running. He should see early snaps and has the ability to become a good combination tight end.
Strengths
Good combination of size and quickness
Moved all over field
Rabid and rowdy in his play
Quick release into routes
Athletic with above-average play speed for the position
Willing and capable pass catcher on all three levels
Has the feet and acceleration to burst open from breaks
Separates from garden-variety linebackers in coverage
Instant opener when sinking into zone holes
Hands are sticky and ball focus is elite
Had one drop against 100 career catches
Reliable inside the hash marks
Makes subtle moves to shield catch-point from linebackers
Secures through contact
Runs with power and balance after the catch
Will seek out collisions rather than running out of bounds
Has frame and grit to improve as in-line blocker
Capable move blocker able to adjust to targets
Weaknesses
Will be a 25-year-old rookie when next season starts
Appears to be giving route clues to defenders at times
Doesn't manipulate defender often enough from breaks and stems
Out-breaking routes have been getting jumped for two consecutive seasons
Had safeties run his routes on various occasions
Will need work as in-line blocker
Hands fly out wide into first contact
Can improve his play strength at point of attack if he gets his hand placement right
Ducks head into contact
Won't always look to improve positioning with quality footwork after contact

"He's a grown man out there. No, he is literally a grown man. I love watching him play but he's 24 now so I think he's maxed out. He is who he's going to be physically so now we have to see how much better he gets as a football player." -- NFC Player Personnel Executive

Seriously....I'd have been happy with Moore at 16 even though the price is too high.

They do need a pass catching TE with good hands and he fills that bill.

 

Now the need O line help.
