NFL Draft: Expect the Unexpected

3 Teams That Fumbled the NFL Draft

With the 2017 NFL Draft officially completed and in the books, it’s time to analyze which team walked away with a draft class that can potentially alter the future of their franchise for the better, or which teams completely whiffed on the guys whom they chose. As far as the latter, there were three teams who appeared to do the worst job of restocking their talent pool this weekend. Here’s our look at the three teams who appear to have the least productive outcomes from this past draft:

3. New York Giants — Nobody is disputing the fact that the New York Giants added four quality football players to their team in the first three rounds of the draft. But for a team that’s very much built to “win now,” did they really do anything to take that next step forward, and dethrone the Dallas Cowboys from the top of the NFC East? Their first round pick, tight end Evan Engram from Ole Miss, is a fantastically athletic tight end with dynamic playmaking skills. But he’s more of a “Y” receiver than a tight end, especially considering he’s not a very good blocker. The Giants already invested a second round pick in 2016 in Sterling Sheppard, a promising wide receiver who happens to play the same position. Sure, the Giants can employ both of them on the field, but did they really need to spend their top pick on a position where they have an answer, especially considering someone like linebacker Reuben Foster — who was still on the draft board when the Giants were picking — could have filled a major need? Similarly, the Giants spent their third round pick on quarterback Davis Webb from California. Webb is a nice prospect, with some people thinking he could have slipped into the first round. But did the Giants really need to spend a Day 2 pick the heir apparent to Eli Manning? Couldn’t they have addressed a bigger need immediately, and waited ’til 2018 — when the depth and quality of the quarterback group looks much richer — to find their “quarterback of tomorrow?”

2. Kansas City — Speaking of “quarterback of the future,” the Kansas City Chiefs traded their first round pick (#27 overall), a third round pick, and their first round pick in 2018 to the Buffalo Bills, in order to move up to get quarterback Patrick Mahomes. In theory, the move made sense. Incumbent quarterback Alex Smith will be 33 years old when the season starts, and there are growing doubts as to whether he’s the guy that can lead the Chiefs to a Super Bowl. But considering the Chiefs finished the regular season with 12 wins last year, and are right in the midst of their closest shot to winning the Super Bowl in years, was now the time to start thinking about the future? And it’s not like Mahomes was some generational prospect that they simply could not pass up. He’s undoubtedly a physically talented prospect, but he’s years away from being ready to contribute full-time in an NFL offense. Even while playing in the quarterback-friendly “Air Raid” system at Texas Tech, he still looked much more like a sandlot quarterback, versus a polished passer. The Chiefs passed on the opportunity to take a pass rusher or a running back with their top pick (where there was plenty of talent available with the #27 pick) and then reached for players at both positions with their two ensuing picks (taking Tanoh Kpassagnon in the second round and Kareem Hunt in the third round).

1. Chicago — There’s no more simple way to put it: the 2017 draft class for the Chicago Bears, at least as of today, looks like a total disaster. First off, it’s already well known that the San Francisco 49ers — whom the Bears surrendered three picks over to, just to flip flop between the #3 and #2 overall selections — were bluffing about their interest in quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, or having other suitors for Trubisky’s services. For a team that needs to fill many more holes on their roster, the Bears didn’t have that type of draft capital to waste, and especially not at a position where they seemed to have some semblance of an answer already. If the current front office regime sticks around, there will be pressure to put Trubisky into the lineup as early as late this season (if the Bears find themselves out of the postseason race by the early winter). That’s reportedly already going over extremely poorly with quarterback Mike Glennon, whom the Bears promised the starting quarterback job to less than two months ago, when signing him as a free agent. Add in the fact that the Bears selected three players who didn’t play Division I college football last year, and you have a lot of people wondering what the heck General Manager Ryan Pace was doing this past weekend.

Ewwwww! Don’t draft these fantasy busts!

 

From yahoo.com:

Peyton Manning, Den, QB
ADP (From Fantasy Football Calculator): 38.6 (QB3)
If I’m going to use my late-third or early-fourth round pick on a QB (the average price tag for Peyton), it’s not going to be on a 39-year-old with a recent history of quad and neck injuries, the former being used as the excuse for an ugly performance stretch over the final five weeks of ’14 (though the injury occurred at the mid-way point of that slide) . And, if the guy is also losing a Red Zone Hoover like Julius Thomas, a velcro-handed chain mover like Wes Welker and three starting offensive linemen from last season, then I’m definitely going to look a different direction. And let’s not forget that we also have to take into account a change at head coach (Gary Kubiak), which also means a change in offensive philosophy, one that should be decidedly more ground heavy if history tells us anything. If the early rounds are about minimizing risks, then avoiding Elder Manning as his career nears the cliff’s edge is the prudent course of action. (Brandon Funston)

Arian Foster, Hou, RB
ADP: 8.4 (RB6)
Every featured back in the NFL comes with risk – it’s tackle football, after all – but I see more warning signs with Foster than the ordinary player. He’ll turn 29 right before the season, and there’s a fair amount of tread on the tires – he’s missed 14 games over the last four years, battling a laundry list of physical problems (last year it was hamstring, knee, hip and groin injuries). Only Marshawn Lynch has more rushing attempts than Foster over the past five years (a 46-carry edge), and consider Lynch has played in 13 more games than Foster. Houston’s bell cow takes on a lot of contact at 6-feet-0, 232 pounds, and I’d like to be more floor driven with my early picks, especially at the running back position. (Scott Pianowski

Kelvin Benjamin, Car, WR
ADP: 36.1 (WR15)
Last year, the scintillating performances of Odell Beckham, Mike Evans, Jordan Matthews and Benjamin left the fantasy community thirsting for more. Their break out rookie campaigns, unsurprisingly, have raised expectations to near unprofitable levels. However, of all the second-year targets likely to experience a sophomore slump, Benjamin tops the list. To be fair, he’s a preeminent red-zone threat. Tight end-like at 6-foot-5, 240 pounds and blessed with plus leaping ability, he’s a menace near the goal-line. In one more game he enticed the same number of red-zone targets (17) as Rob Gronkowski. He should again be a preferred weapon of Cam Newton, but red flags are flapping in the wind. Benjamin missed 10-of-14 summer practices due to hamstring problems which caused him to pack on 10 pounds of unnecessary weight. The wideout said recently he’s already shed the extra baggage and is healed, but I have my doubts. Hammies can flare up at a moment’s notice. Just ask the dude who owned Miles Austin a while back. Couple that with adjustments defenses are bound to make, Carolina’s conservative approach and Devin Funchess increasing competition for targets and it’s plain to see the increased downfall probability. At best, you’re hoping for a repeat of 2014 (73-1008-9). At his WR15 price, the margin simply isn’t there.  (Brad Evans)

Jonathan Stewart, Car, RB
ADP: 43.4 (RB21)
Coming off his most productive year since 2011, Stewart is going all Lisa Kudrow and attempting to make a fantasy comeback. With DeAngelo Williams soon to be suiting up for the Steelers, Stewart has been loosed from RBBC bondage and will assume Carolina’s workhorse duties. His ADP has soared accordingly. However, this volume that everyone is predicting is far from guaranteed. Head Coach Ron Rivera has never leaned on a single back. Not even in the Divisional Round of the playoffs where Mike Tolbert was tapped over Stewart on a crucial third down play. Speaking of Tolbert, the human bowling ball is back to full health and ready to vulture the end zone. And he’s not the only one. Fozzy Whitaker and rookie Cameron Artis-Payne are also in the mix. Still, the biggest threat to Stewart’s production is his quarterback. Cam Newton rushed the red zone twelve times and scored three touchdowns in 2014. J-Stew had nineteen attempts from the goal-line, but only managed two scores. Throw in Stewart’s obvious durability concerns and his current price tag seems a bit bloated, especially in standard scoring formats which are so touchdown dependent.  (Liz Loza)

Travis Kelce, KC, TE
ADP: 54.8 (TE3)
I challenge you to go find a fantasy analyst — anyone, anywhere — who isn’t extremely bullish on Kelce this season. Go ahead, take a minute to search. We’ll wait. Nothing, right? It’s amazing, really. We have never agreed on anything the way we seem to agree on the greatness of Kelce. Kansas City’s tight end is carrying a fifth round ADP these days, and I’ve seen him selected much earlier than that — and everyone who picks the guy takes an immediate victory lap in draft chat. While I have plenty of respect for Kelce’s talent (and we’re all impressed at his recovery from microfracture), I really hate these situations where we price a player at a level where he needs to make a significant value leap. Let’s not pretend the team context in KC so great; this team’s passing offense ranked No. 29 last season and No. 24 the year before. When the Chiefs visit the red-zone, Jamaal Charles is basically the entire show. If you’re counting on Alex Smith boosting the value of any member of his receiving corps, well, I mean … c’mon. We’re talking about a hyper-conservative quarterback and a low-yield passing game. KC only put the ball in the air 493 times last season, finishing with only 18 touchdown passes. No need to pay a premium price to get a share in this passing game. I’ll take Zach Ertz in the eighth or Josh Hill in the eleventh, thank you very much. Kelce is all yours. (Andy Behrens)

Andre Ellington, Ari, RB
ADP: 45.0 (RB22)
Andre Ellington got 5.5 YPC during his rookie campaign, but he was one of the biggest busts as a sophomore last season, when that number dropped to 3.3. Pro Football Focus graded him as the No. 56 runner out of 57 qualified backs, as Ellington got just 1.8 YPC after contact, which was the second lowest in the NFL. He played hurt, which undoubtedly contributed to his lackluster season, but there’s reason to be concerned about the 5-9 back’s durability moving forward, which is evidenced by the Cardinals spending a third round draft pick on David Johnson. Moreover, did you realize he’s already 26 years old? LeSean McCoy just turned 27 two weeks ago. Given his health risk and coming off last year’s truly dismal performance, I can’t see drafting Ellington as a top-25 fantasy back in 2015. (Dalton Del Don)

Top Three Quarterbacks in the 2015 NFL draft

While a lot of teams in the NFL feel like they already have a franchise quarterback to count on, there are going to be teams looking for that type of guy in the 2015 NFL draft. It might not be the most outstanding year for quarterbacks, but there are a few who have an opportunity to become starters rather quickly. Here is a look at who might be able to take a franchise to another level.

Jameis Winston

In his redshirt freshman year, Winston made a name for hiimself as a nationalchampion and a Heisman Trophy winner. However, a lot of people are goingto focus on some of his transgressions off of the field as reasons to doubt his character a little bit. He seems to be maturing quickly, and a lot of mock drafts have him as the number 1 overall pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They have been desperately looking for a franchise type of guy, and he certainly has the arm strength and the size to be solid in the NFL.

Marcus Mariota

Like Winston, Mariota goes into the draft with the Heisman Trophy alreaady to his name. He has some people doubting him as well, but that has to do with the type of style he played at the college level. There are some scouts who feel like Oregon made him look better than he actually is. His draft position seems a little bit trickier, but someone in the 1st round is going to take a chance on him. In fact, slipping out of the top 10 seems almost impossible.

Brett Hundley

After the top 2 prospects, there is a chance that we do not see another quarterback drafted until the 3rd round. There are going to be some options for teams at that time, as Bryce Petty and Garrett Grayson could go in that round as well. Hundley just seems like the guy with the most potential right now. He was able to have quite a bit of success at UCLA, and he has the armstrength to compete at the highest level.
