    Quote from Broken Arrow in the Rookie Meetings thread on the Draft forum:


    Draft Picks Visits/Interviews are a big deal for teams interested in a prospect. Even so much to the point where tendencies can be spotted if you actually put pen to paper.

    The only exception to the rule was 2018 where Rashaan Evans was taken in 1st as opposed to Harold Landry. But there could have been a number of reasons for #2 position evaluated leaping the 1st --- as we traded up in both scenarios - but let all that be discussed in the comments. (also as "Safety in 2018" is omitted as it was a 4th round pick & not a 3rd.)

    When broken down, all 3 of our first 3 draft picks the past 3 years, have made some kind of visit/interview made public to the media. Even moreover, all 3 (2019, 2018, 2017) also were the most scouted/evaluated positions.


    2019 - QB 2 RB 3 WR *6* TE 3 OL *8* DL/E *19* LB 3 CB 5 S 5

    (19) DL/E - Jeffery Simmons, (6) WR - AJ Brown, (8) OL - Nate Davis

    2018 - QB 6 RB 3 WR 8 TE 2 OL 3 DL/E *10* LB *7* CB 4 S 6

    (7) LB - Rashaan Evans, , (10) DL/E - Harold Landry (6) S - Dane Cruikshank



    2017 - QB 1 RB 2 WR *11* TE 4 OL 4 DL/E *9* LB 5 CB *10* S 2

    (11) WR - Corey Davis (10) CB - Adoree Jackson (11) WR - Taywan Taylor

    This year, per WF, PFF, and other spaced out single sources - the position groups that have made visits/workouts/interviews/facetimes that are available to the media are as follows:

    (covid-19 also having an affect on most OFFICIAL 30 visits.)

    QB 2 RB 2 WR 4 TE 0 OL *4* DL/E *7* LB 0 CB *6* S 1

    That breaks down to DL/E 1st round, CB 2nd round, and Offensive Lineman 3rd round. [You could try to make a case for a WR, but I'm not expecting a 4th WR selected in the 2nd round... for a PA Pass/Run first offense...]

    So if you take all the history of JROB taking most evaluated positions, coupled with lists of visits/interviews made -- you can make a pretty educated assumption


    1st round. DL/E: Broken down to back end first round possibilites:

    Terrell Lewis - Alabama. Marlon Davidson - Auburn. Jonathan Greenard - Florida.

    Who I'm expecting?: Terrell Lewis

    2nd round. CB: Broken down to back end second round possibilites:

    Damon Arnette - Ohio State. Cameron Dantzler - Miss St.

    Who I'm expecting?: Damon Arnette

    3rd round. OL: Broken down to back end third round possibilites:

    Robert Hunt - La-Lafayette. Cameron Clarke - Charlotte

    Who I'm expecting?: Robert Hunt

    Terrell Lewis? He failed physicals by half the NFL TEAMS....Projected to go 51.

    Not my choice at 29. But, otherwise the logic is sound regarding JRob's trends with pre-draft visits.

    Rashad was even more pronounced. He looked like one of the work linebackers I have ever seen to start the year. But by the end of the year you could tell he was gona be damn good

    Picking at 29, you'd think we may benefit from an unanticipated fall. I hope they go BPA at DL/CB at 29.

    Nate Davis improved steadily as he was given reps and settled in. Did you forget how bad Saffold was at the beginning of the season and he was a proven vet who was one of the top left guards in the league.
