Draft prospects



We’re 0-4, getting better, but I think it’s safe to say we’re looking at another top 5 pick (if we’re being honest it’s looking like top 2). Obviously, if we can ramp the improvements up and start stealing games then we’ll take it as fans. But for now I just want to leave the top 20 prospects here from the CBS rankings and see what y’all think.

It’d be nice to get a top tier dude protecting for Trevor, but I think the defensive talent at the top is just too good to pass up on (it kind of sucks we may have to wait another year to put 1st round talent on the O-line). Thibodeaux would be the pass rusher we need and could form a great tandem with Josh Allen. Stingley could be what we were hoping Hendo was going to be. Hopefully, Meyer wouldn’t pass him up because of Tyson Campbell, though.

Here’s the prospects, we’re still early in the season, so the rankings are pretty fluid at this point. For example, CBS doesn’t specify the last time this was updated, but I feel like the QB’s Rattler and Howell should be lower than this and maybe an OL like Alabama’s Evan Neal has jumped into the top 20. Anyways, what do y’all think?
