Jeremy Conn: My 5 Favorite Players In The NFL Draft
Sports Fan Insider
1. Eric Ebron – The best Tight End in this draft class. He can stretch the field, break tackles and he is very athletic and explosive. He can be split out wide and play receiver. He is not the greatest blocker and he needs to work on his route running but he is an absolute playmaker. Projected as a top 15 pick.
2. Jordan Mathews – He has great size and ability. Some experts questioned his vertical speed, but he ran better than expected at the combine. Makes tough catches in traffic and has very reliable hands. Great leaping ability as well. All he did was lead the SEC in Receiving and dominate some of the best schools in the country. Projected early second round pick.
3.Terrance West – Call me a homer, I don’t care, but I love his all around game. He led all of college football with 42 touchdowns and 2700 yards rushing. He has decent hands and plays with a chip on his shoulder. Really excited to see where he ends up, I believe he could be the best Running Back in this class. Projected as a 3rd round pick.
4. Odell Beckham Jr – This guy can help you on special teams as well as move the chains on the offensive side of the ball. Dangerous open field runner with very good vision. He is an excellent route runner. He doesn’t have great size but he has very good ball skills. Projected top 15 pick.
5. Kyle Van Noy – He is very explosive pass rusher with good speed and athleticism. He is a big hitter who always appears to be around the ball. He lacks ideal size, but he looks to be an ideal player for a 3-4 defense. Projected as a 2nd round pick.
