Who's Your Draft Crush?

Every year i fall in love with way too many.

A few that are a bit under the radar and likely not on many peoples lists are:

Jalen Saunders
Gator Hoskins
Christian Bryant
Dakota Dozier

But i have crushes on a bunch of guys placed all throughout the draft and in all positions.



Bradley Roby
Jimmy Garoppolo
Jalen Saunders
Gator Hoskins
Brandin Cooks.
Davante Adams
Derek Carr
Christian Bryant
Dakota Dozier
Jeff Janis
Jason Verrett
Phillip Gaines
Walt Aikens
Weston Richburg
Vinnie Sunseri
Deone Bucannon
Sean Parker

Just to name a few.

The thing about the WR's is Adams had great numbers, but they were inflated because of Fresno St's offense, he played in MWC that can't spell defense, let alone play any. Matthews is the all-time SEC receiving leader but in some draft profiles doesn't measure up to Adams and Moncrief. Still trying to figure that out. Moncrief has the size and speed, but not the body of work either Adams or Matthews has. Cooks has the speed, but is smallish. Hmm....

Adams barely began playing football as a Junior in High School. Kid has 4 years playing time under his belt...Period. At all levels. I dont care where he played, or who was throwing him the football, dude has balled out since he got to Fresno State. No one could stop him in the redzone. No one.

Adams is the real deal IMO. His ceiling is still sky high. A lot of people who are underestimating him will be surprised with what he does with his career in the NFL IMO. I personally believe his stats were less about system, and more about talent. He has a knack for going up and snagging the football.
At this point I have too many to name! This draft is faakin deep man
Not really a crush, but Nebraska QB Taylor Martinez might be interesting as a late 7th rounder or UDFA. Not as a QB, but as a WR conversion guy like Julian Edelman. Martinez is about 6',0", 210ish and ran 4.41-4.45 at his pro day. Might need a year on the practice squad, but probably worth a look.

I watched his high light video yesterday and was wondering why more people weren't talking about him. It's to bad they don't make low light videos lol.
Christian Bryant sucks...

Ryan Shazier is 6'2" 235ish and jumped 42" and just run a 4.36... Freak. I know he's seen as a traditional WILL in a 4-3 scheme, but then again, so was Navorro Bowman.

LOL...yah, as a QB, he's tough to watch. But as a runner, he's pretty special.

He sucks... He's small, he doesn't make plays, he isn't a very good hitter... solid tackler, though. Not particularly fast or athletic. Some of the worst hands this side of Donte Whitner. He's a worse prospect and player than Kurt Coleman.

Nice he get mentioned ! One of my top draft crushes. Lattimore + Seastrunk would form a dangerous 1-2 punch. Too sad there is no way we can fit him on our roster at this point.

Lache Seastrunk highlights

Ah, yes, the white guys as the "football players". Truth be told, both Borland and Abbrederis are outstanding athletes.

If anything, Ricardo Allen is a "football player". Good call on him... forgot all about him. Tough ass kid... confidence through the roof and a really good athlete. Baby Antoine Winfield. Would love to add him to our roster.
