Actually, I liked what Charlie did for the Rams.
He picked QB Connor Cook in the first round for the Rams and then selected a WR
for their first pick in the second round. I liked the WR pick at #38 for the
Ravens better than his #41 selection for the Rams because he, Josh Doctson, was
faster than Tyler Boyd and could get better separation. A big problem the Rams
have is that their receivers can't get separation.
38. Ravens: </span>Tyler
Boyd, WR, Pittsburg-6’2”,190 LBS-has
speed to go with his size, was impressive
against good defensive backs in 2014, including Virginia Tech's tough secondary, broke some of Larry Fitzgerald’s freshman records.
41. Rams-Josh Doctson WR TCU-6’3’,195 LBS-big
strong WR, good in end zone, but lacks speed, and may not gain separation
against NFL backs.
Since the Rams lost this week and the Ravens won,
they have the same record now, but the Ravens beat the Rams. So now the Rams
would be picking before the Ravens.
Length makes him a more effective defender and rebounder
Guards multiple positions
Needs to add muscle to his thin frame
Free throw shooting
Must become a more proficient three-point shooter at the next level
Summary: I call him the "Evan Turner of the West." Hobson and Turner are the only two players in the country to average at least 15 points, eight rebounds and four assists a game, which says something about their versatility. Despite this being Hobson's first year of Division I college basketball, he chose to turn pro. He could sneak into the late first round but more than likely will be taken in the second.
Player Comparison: A Shaun Livingston/Matt Barnes mix. Livingston is a 6-7 point guard who was known for his playmaking ability heading into the NBA which is similar to Hobson who played a point forward role for Lobos. Hobson also has some Matt Barnes in his game due to his rebounding ability and versatility, and will probably play some two and three at the next level as well.
