Friday night’s draft action has been interesting with trades coming fast and furious and massive run on defensive backs, which has been the real strength of this year’s draft class.
The top offensive player, for me, in this year’s draft is Florida State running back Dalvin Cook. Like Allen, if you consider his on-field performance it’s hard not to be enamored by his play. He’s like a better version of Devonta Freeman with his ability to run around defenders and catch passes. Directly behind Cook is LSU running back Leonard Fournette. The two may have entirely different styles and strengths, but they grade out closely.
Then there are the quarterbacks.
Deshaun Watson of Clemson comes out on top for the position, but rates as the 14th overall prospect in the draft. Directly behind him is Mitchell Trubisky of North Carolina at 15th overall. Expect both to be picked higher than where they’re slotted. Watson would be rated higher if he had a somewhat stronger arm and didn’t throw so many interceptions. Trubisky would be rated higher if he had more than one year of starting experience.
