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.
Must become a better ball handler to run the point in the NBA
Too often gets caught leaving his feet without knowing where the ball is going
Summary: Fredette is an elite scorer at the college level and has an outside shot that all NBA general managers covet. However, his combo guard status and lack of great athleticism hurts his status. When the draft is all said and done, I think he ends up going late in the first round depending on how many underclassmen declare. If he slips to the second round, he could be one heck of a steal if he finds his role at the next level.
Player Comparison: Mo Williams Williams is not a great athlete by NBA standards which is why he ended up being a second-round pick. He has put together a successful NBA career due to his craftiness as a scorer and that is what allows Fredette to excel.
