Cant believe “the last 3 drafted” are making this much noise
Consider our Saturday picks of the last few years. It’s names like Scoobie, Donnie Lewis, Simeon Thomas, Howard Wilson, Rod Johnson, etc etc.
It looks like those 3 have all completely solidified a roster spot, after only 2 weeks of camp.
I’m fact, haven’t they all flashed? Instead of 10+ draftees and let’s hope the money ball math allows 1/2 of them to stick, AB shifted the draft philosophy to 6 quality selections, it would appear.
Did he really just draft 6 meaningful players who will significantly contribute in year 1? Harris is the least likely to see the field of course, but at this point, it’s safe to say the entire draft class is going to take reps on Sunday.
• Wills will start
• Delpit will elbow his way on to the field
• Elliott will be part of the (by design) DL rotation. • Phillips d/t injury will be in at least some
• Bryant is like Delpit. He’s going to force the coaches to get him on the field. • Harris - prob won’t play, that’s just because JC will gut it out. • DPJ was supposed to be at the end of the WR room, but make it due to his returner skills. Now he’s competing for WR3. Super nice.
The only other thing I can add is a dose of “it’s early, we’ll see”.
