  • Jaylon Smith

    Most mocks have him falling out of the 1st round. Do you take chance on him in the second?

  • #2
    I would. The guy is doing 400lb squats. I know his recovery to 95% ( you' re never 100% after such injury) is 50/50 and the chance of us having another 2nd round bust is possible. It's a risk I think worth taking.
    The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

      Nope. We are famous for drafting guys that can't get on the field. We aren't close to a championship where we can take a chance on a guy.

        My opinion is that since i view 2016 as a throwaway year (Meaning i'm positive we're not going to contend..not even sure we're gonna compete) i'd take a chance on him in a hearbeat & redshirt him for this year if need be. That's provided he'd still even on the board when our # comes up in the 2nd,, the guy has the potential to be an absolute stud once he's fully recovered...I've seen mocks that have the Patriots taking him.. Now that would suck!!

          I agree. I would do my best to TRY and get additional picks, preferably in the 2nd round, but either way I would get as many picks as I could and I would draft Jaylon Smith and sit him this season and prepare for next season and look at it as if we got TWO 1st round picks in 2017. Jaylon Smith is NOT Dion Jordan and fans need to get that thought our of their heads.

        Really depends on his medical status. Has it improved, or is the nerve still not responding? He's due to have an update later this week. Probably be next week before anything gets posted. A couple mocks have him at the bottom of the 1st round again already, but red-shirting the 2016 season.

          yeah, it would definitely depend on the outcome of the updated medical...It would be a real shame for him if he suffered permanent nerve damage & isn't able to get back to 100%,, worse yet isn't able to get back period...Like that stud RB a few years back Marcus Lattimore; projected 1st rounder absolutely had his knee destroyed by injury. SF took a gamble on him in the 4th i believe, but he was never able to play again...

            lol... no doubt. Alcohol therapy slightly lessens the pain.

          DP, you have been on a tear lately. I'm thinking a stint on Saturday Night Live or a writer for Mad Magazine.

          No we need immediate contributors if not outright starters with our first 3 picks. Maybe there will be a Jaylon Smith who is healthy in next years draft.

            Agree... like the idea of drafting a LB still though. Hoping we see one of the 2nd year LBs step up and that Alonso can stay healthy.

        • #10
          Yes. Then trade Stills and our #4 to move up and get MLB Scooby Wright in mid to late 3.

            I don't like the idea of getting rid of Stills (since we also lost Matthews) - but I would LOVE to get Wright in the 3rd. If not, then I'll be hoping for Martinez on Day 3....

          Check out an Ohio kid named Steven Daniels, who played for Boston College. 6-0, 249 Lbs. Looks like a sleeper at MLB. He's a powerful thumper in the middle who can pass rush, and also and drop into coverage effectively for a heavy weight. For such a thick kid, he has surprising fluidity and suddenness of movement. He looks really good on film as a mid round pick.

            CBSSports.com ranked Steven Daniels as the 19th best ILB in this draft and they don't think he will be drafted. They ranked Nick Vigil as the 5th best ILB and predicted he will be taken in the 3rd or 4th round. Vigil had an outstanding combine where he had the best time in the 3 cone 6.73 seconds and 20 yards shuttle 4.0 seconds of all LB's there. He ran a respectable 4.72 40 which was the same as Reggie Ragland.

            If we don't address the LB position in the first 3 rounds then I would take Nick Vigil in the 4th round. Another option would be Blake Martinez who we could possibly get in the 5th round. CBSSports.com ranked him as the 7th best ILB in the draft and a 5th round prospect. He ran the 3 cone in 6.98 seconds and the 20 yard shuttle in 4.2 seconds and he ran a 4.71 in the 40.

              I'd love to take Nick Vigil or Blake Martinez. Nick is under rated.

            Smith got his medical recheck & the news wasn't good...It seems that he isn't going to be able to play at all this year, but even worse than that news IMO is the uncertainty that he'll ever get back to where he was before..Who knows?? I'd love to take a chance on him if he free-falls into the later rounds,, but more than likely a team that can afford to take a chance will draft him, someone like the Pats, sigh-h-h.......

              Agree. While I wish this team was good enough to be able to take a chance on a guy like this who could be a huge stud if he gets back to his former self, we are just not in a position to risk taking a guy that might not ever be the player he once was.. It's part of the penalty for sucking at the draft for so long now. We just don't have the depth and talent to roll the dice without dire consequenses if it fails.

            Depends on how far he falls. NO ONE thought Ajayi would be there in the 5th round when we took him. IF Smith takes a tumble past the 3rd round, take the chance and shelve him this season. We haven't hit a stud in the 4th round since Miller back in 2012 anyway. Last years was spend on Jamil Douglas. He might as well have been injured and rehabbing all season for all the good he was.
