Marcus Davenport to Packers again in Mel Kiper's 2.0 mock draft

ESPN analyst: One UGA player is in top-10, another heads to Falcons in latest mock draft | The Telegraph

Here is what Kiper predicted in his initial mocks versus what the Browns actually did in the first rounds, since 2010.

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper isn't high on former Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett's draft potential. But on the conference call, he mentioned "ball security" as something Michel needs to clean up in the NFL.

"He has the best arm of anybody in this draft", Kiper said.

"Not every National Football League scout believes Jefferson is worthy of a first-round pick, but I think the Eagles could benefit from his size and athleticism inside or outside".

"You see a lot of Eli Manning in his game". "Going back before the year began you would've probably thought (Kamryn) Pettway". He has a will to learn.

Kiper compared Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen to Matthew Stafford when he was coming out of Georgia in 2009.

Plus, as Kiper noted, "Do the Giants take a quarterback or the best prospect available?" He slid Penn State running back Saquon Barkley into that position in his update.

In his latest mock draft, Kiper has three running backs going in the first round - Barkley second to the New York Giants, Guice 20th to Detroit and Jones 25th to Tennessee. He's projecting that Buffalo takes Iowa center/guard James Daniels instead. However, that's all subject to change based on what happens in free agency and at the NFL Combine. The 2017 Heisman Trophy victor playing in NY would be a lot of fun to watch.

Jackson, at 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, has ideal size, length and aggression for the 49ers' Cover-3 scheme. He didn't have many of those, if any.

Think about it: High school coaches serve such a large role in all the players' maturation.

"This is a bad, bad year for down defensive ends", Kiper said. "It's not going to allow for a completion percentage of 65 percent". He clears the difference by sending the Bills' second-round pick (No. 56, 350 points) to the Broncos for their third-round selection, (No. 71 overall, 235 points) to essentially make things even. "He could play inside or outside linebacker in the Bears' 3-4, and it's that versatility and athleticism that has scouts drooling".

"He was one of the best offensive linemen there, and he neutralized pass-rushers on nearly every one-on-one rep. Wynn played guard and tackle for the Bulldogs, but at 6-2, 308, scouts see him as a guard at the next level". He is followed by Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick, who plays cornerback and safety, and N.C. State defensive end Bradley Chubb.

"The fact is you can compare players from other eras", Kiper said. Then there's a gap between him and the second-best rusher, Texas-San Antonio's Marcus Davenport.

No matter what you think of Rosen, how he presents himself is a legitimate worry at this stage of the process.
