GMS Academy member Adam Page looks into the future and picks the NFL Draft
11) Tennesse Titans – Teddy Bridgewater
Bridgewater's poor pro-day means nothing because these events are essentially irrelevant. The best ever pro-day people have seen was Jamarcus Russel's and we all know how
well that worked out.
The Titans need a QB. The current stater Jake Locker is entering the last year of his contract, has never really been that good and is injury prone.
The Titans will rely on the tape they have seen of Bridgewater and draft him.
12) New York Giants – Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
With Will Hill's drug suspension the Giant's secondary is looking in need of some new blood. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is the best safety in a relatively shallow talent pool.
If the Giants try to wait until the second round or later to strengthen at safety they will regret it. They'll draft Clinton-Dix.
13) San Fransisco 49ers – Justin Gilbert
The 49ers need to make a big splash in the draft if they want to overtake the Seahawks. They have 11 picks in this year's draft and that is far too many for them to use effectively.
They will trade up to the Rams spot to grab a blue chip talent. After exercising the five year option on Aldon Smith's contract the 49ers have secured an important player at
outside linebacker and can now direct their focus elsewhere namely the cornerback position.
The cornerback they will target Justin Gilbert who is a blue chip talent at cornerback.
14) Chicago Bears – Aaron Donald
The Bears need to add some firepower and strength into the D-line. Aaron Donald should do this. He is slightly undersized for a tackle but lightening quick running a 4.68 second 40-yard-dash.
15) Pittsburgh Steelers – Darqueze Dennard
The Steelers need an inject of youth at the cornerback position and Darqueze Dennard is the best option available at this point in the draft.
16) Dallas Cowboys – Timmy Jernigan
The Cowboys are currently relying on the surgically patched up knee of Henry Melton. Even if Melton lasts the season he isn't a long term option.
Jernigan could be the long term answer to the Cowboys defensive tackle needs. He has the size and strength to fill multiple gaps and is quick on his feet for being 300lbs. His biggest weakness is that he is sometimes slow off the snap but that is fixable.
17) Baltimore Ravens – Taylor Lewin
With the best safety talent gone the Ravens will look to improve the offensive line and find a right tackle to replace Michael Oher. Preferable one would could one day develop into a starting left tackle. Taylor Lewin is the best choice left to do this.
18) New York Jets – Zach Martin
After adding Chris Johnson and Michael Vick to the offense in free agency the Jets have affirmed Rex Ryan's commitment to the run game. For this plan to succeed the Jets will
need some top class run blocking Zach Martin should provide this. His run blocking skills are excellent.
19) Miami Dolphins – Odell Beckham Jr
The Dolphins wide receiver corp of Hartline, Gibson and Binns is a mixture of the walking wounded and the recently operated on. Given the talent available at wide receiver this year the Dolphins will look to fix this problem by drafting Odell Beckham Jr. He is lightening bolt fast and great at making yards after the catch.
20) Arizona Cardinals – Anthony Barr
There have been talk recently of the Cardinals drafting a QB at 20 but I see the need for a pass rusher as more important. The NFC West probably the strongest in the NFL and a pass rushing threat like Anthony Barr could be the difference between making the playoffs and ending the season before the New Year.
