    Re: What player do you feel will be the biggest steal in the draft?



    Terron armstead, I think he will be an elite left tackle and if you get one of them at 32 or later then that's the steal of the draft

    I would think that would depend on where they are drafted...

    Can you say someone was a steal before they were drafted?

    Are you freaking kidding me? Barrett Jones grades out as a top 32 talent as a pure football player. He has the highest football IQ of any prospect in this class and can play all 5 positions on the OL at a high level. I don't see him dropping out of the mid-2nd at the very worst, so if he fell another 40 or 50 spots I would absolutely freak out.

    Jones would be a huge upgrade to our OL. If we need to move Osemele out of LG he could fill in there and there'd be no drop-off, or he could play RT if Oher is moved, or if nothing else he would just push Gino into a reserve spot and lock down center for the next 10-15 years. Hell, I would even give him a shot to compete at LT considering he was ONE OF THE BEST LEFT TACKLES IN THE NATION in 2011. People forget that some felt he was a better LT in 2011 than Matt Kalil (gave up fewer sacks, was a better run blocker, and was voted All-American ahead of him)

    I'm just thinking about this year, he could start his career out at C. I just like the idea of an interior line of KO-Jones-Yanda. That would be sick. Gino could have another year developing an NFL body, although, that's not to say I think Gino isn't ready, I think he is.

    I would run the pick to the podium if he was there. No offense to Gino, but we have no idea how he will do. In addition, Jones can play any position on the offensive line. That kind of versatility is unreal.

    Barnett Jones for sure. Would be a steal if Ravens picked him up.
    I'm thinking maybe the WR Woods. He looked really good.

    Ace Sanders WR South Carolina...had a scout tell me he rather have Sanders in the 4th then Austin in the 1st...value wise...

    Jones to us in the 3rd would be absolutely stupid...for the other 31 GMs

    I'm starting to think, E J Manual, Florida state QB will wind up in the first round. I know he is raw, but he got talent. With good coaching he could be a steal. I would love for him to end up in the desert. But I think a team like the browns or the Jets will take a chance on him. Could be bottom of first round pick.

    Really?
    Seems to me that everyone is way overrating these "pistol" QB's. I don't think EJ is accurate nore good on reads.? Let me know what I'm missing??

    You should watch the sports science piece on EJ Manuel. Pretty interesting.

    The steal of this draft is going to be Sio Moore. There are only two issues with his game and both are coachable, He needs to improve his upper body strength and combine that with better leverage at the point of attack when taking on blockers.

    He has high quality ILB speed, both North/South and East/West. He has Kiko Alonso type blitz ability, with better technique. He has Alec Ogletree type athleticism. He has Kevin Minter type instincts and Manti T'eo type closing speed. He can play inside in a 3-4, outside in a 4-3 and can man up with TEs in a nickel. He can blitz from the inside and off the edge.

    By word of the Excellector, somebody is going to draft Sio Moore in the mid-late rounds and get a day 1 starter, and that somebody had better be the Ravens. He's the one player that satisfies the board's desire for more athleticism at ILB, without being a liability on early downs.
