@Robert this seems to be how the league thinks. The Bills draft Cardale Jones and are going to end up running him because he's black. It's racism. He's the best goddamn QB in this draft & a bunch of rich white guys are sitting on their perch throwing low-key racist diatribes against him. He was a terrible option QB because God put him on this @[email protected] planet to throw @[email protected] TD's. He got benched so Elliot would have a better time in the running game, because Barret was an Option QB that had the speed to make the defense respect the option; yet they hold it against him?
HAHAHA. Giants get a C for Eli Apple who is arguably the worst pick of the 1st round and Dallas gets a D for Zeke Elliot despite actually NFL coaches, retired players, and real analysts all praising the pick of Elliott. Walter Football is a joke. Your mocks were trash leading up to the draft. The site has become a waste of a click.

Response to Mike Mayock's Redskins-Trent Williams Comment
Mike Mayock is a highly intelligent individual. You can't just have an average brain and be able to be a great draft analyst.
I'm not ruling it out. This is very logical and we know Williams is a more athletic player than Russell Okung. However, Branden Albert was also a more athletic player than Ryan Clady. They had similar measurables, but it was clear that Albert had more mobility and athleticism when you put on the tape.
Mike Shanahan selected Ryan Clady with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft.
I think Mayock makes some good points and I could very well see the Redskins opt for Williams over Okung, but at the same time Shanahan picked the better tackle prospect instead of the more athletic tackle two years ago.
It's important to make sure to fit your personnel to your scheme, but I just don't think you mess around with the left tackle position because it is so critical to get the right guy when you have the opportunity. Millions of dollars are on the line, as is the future of your franchise.
Like I said, Mayock makes a good case for Trent Williams, but draft history says "not so fast my friend."
