Summary: Tyler Honeycutt showed flashes of his potential in his two years at UCLA but is still developing his all-around game. Scouts are enamored by his legth, versatility and athleticism, but he will need to get much stronger before he can make an impact at the next level. Based on his upside, he should be a late first-round pick who could climb into the late teens.
Player Comparison: Nicolas Batum. Both players are long and rangy, possess capable, but often times inconsistent outside shots. If Honeycutt can groom his game like Batum has since entering the league, he could have a similar impact.
No way the Raiders draft two white players in the first three rounds. They use only Derek Carr out of 22 starters and began the year with a league-low 4 out of 53 white players on their roster. This is a long-term trend in Oakland, definitely along the lines of an anti-New England philosophy.
NFL combine will change things quite a bit. USED DRAFT-TEK rankings. Been trying to catch as many college games as possible ( they should update their rankings, IE Kaaya is ranked # 2 on the list , Trubisky is ranked out of the top 50 )
Will see teams reach at OT & QB.
