Clowney is the first defensive player based on physical attributes but Barr is a top 5 pick. If I'm one of your team picking an online men in the top 10 I would pick Barr first hands down. He's a pass rusher of the highest calibre and those are picked at a premium. Second, did you see Mariota tonight? I have watched him all season, soaking his style in. I've noticed some things that can't be ignored. He can't make all the throws a qb needs to make. Awful at the back shoulder and corner. He doesn't shuffle his feet which makes him a statue in the pocket. He doesn't square his shoulders. His throwing motion is slow and awkward. He's not a #2 pick. He's barely a developmental pick in the 3rd rd. I mean literally all the traits you needs to have in the NFL he has the opposite of. Let me ask. What do you think of Hundley? I think him and Aaron Murray are the 3 & 4 behind bridgewater and Boyd.
This. I see no way that Barr falls out of the top 10 short of killing someone before the draft.
I agree. Which I why I hate doing mocks without trades. I just did a basic one for the basis to get one out. I doubt Barr goes outside top 10. I am a homer for Tuitt and Nix. I view Barr as an elite pass rusher. I also view Tuitt as one too. Beasley is a question, Idk how far he goes. Others like Shazier, Murphy, Lynch, etc....
I view this as a defensive loaded draft or at least 1st 2 rounds. So many DT, DE, CB, and OLB prospects. with some good Safety, and ILB prospects. The class right now is deep at WR, QB, and OT. I always view Center, and Guard as top heavy at best. I like the top 3 OGs, Yankey, Richardson, and Jackson. Tackle seems top heavy and depth wise. Guys like Matthews, Lewan and Kouandjio are top 15 picks IMO. Erving, Tiny Richardson, and Hurst are other potential 1st round guys.
I personally cant wait for senior bowl, I love that time. I hope to tape it and disect it better than in past years. I have gone with Youtube as a helper. cause most dont have access to game tape, or coaches tape, like suppsedly McShay and Kiper do, or Mayock. And whatever I see on TV I usually make a note or 2. I have a excel file, well tab inside my SF49ersCap sheet with 2014 prospects, and rankings, past rankings, etc... Whatever you see on PigskinProspects.com I have in that file.
