Hall has excellent size to be an NFL cornerback and was very impressive at the Senior Bowl. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder is a physical corner who has some Richard Sherman bulldog to his game. Scouts say they love Hall's length and toughness. He really stood out for Northern Iowa as he had six interceptions as a senior. Northern Iowa didn't play a top program in 2015, so performing well against more talented receivers was critical for Hall.
Its funny how every mock draft now has the Chargers taking Laremy Tunsil like its a for sure pick. Not so fast. Tom Telesco is re committed to the line he has last year and will not take an OT at 3 after the investments he has put out this season. King Dunlap would be the 14th highest paid OT to ride the bench? come on now. If the Chargers thought Tunsil was a possibility they wouldn't have resigned Dunlap and their other option to bench Orlando Franklin is foolish.
with that being said, Jalen Ramsey is the pick. You take the best player in the draft and he will immediately come in and tear things up. Its a win win situation for San Diego you can plug him in at CB and say goodbye to the struggling Brandon Flowers or you can use him at safety to fill the role Eric Weddle left behind. Ramsey, Verrett, Hayward... that's a scary secondary.
Scouting report: Dominant athlete. Sprinter and champion long jumper for Seminoles track team and hit a 40-inch vertical leap in high school. Prototype frame for a big, press cover corner. From press, lands accurate blows with extended arms into the shoulders of receivers. Can redirect and, in some cases, completely roadblock a route with his disruptive press strength and tactics. Has experience at safety and as slot corner. Boundary corner in 2015 and quick to crowd outside releases against sideline. Shines in trail coverage. Has athletic ability to slam on brakes from full sprint and shadow comeback routes. Length and closing speed make it difficult to beat him over the top. Elite leaper who can challenge jump balls against anyone. Uses aggressive ripping and raking against catch attempts. Aware and instinctive from zone and off coverage. Diagnoses quickly and will stick a foot in the ground and drive hard towards the throw. Balanced, wrap-up tackler in space. Allowed a completion rate of just 38.5 percent.
Other possibilities: DeForest Buckner DE, Joey Bosa DE, Myles Jack LB
Scouting report:Tall, angular build for the position. Eye-popping interception numbers (19) becoming the all-time leader in Boise State history this season. Soft hands and can make difficult, diving interceptions. Willing to take a chance to undercut throws and will run through receivers catch point to disrupt. Ready hitter with desired physical demeanor to play around line of scrimmage. Willing to sacrifice his body against pulling linemen in order to cave in the edge. Able to bob and weave around traffic and consistently choose the correct lane to find running backs. Saw tackle for loss numbers increase each year and will make his own luck on other side of the line.
Another surprising selection at the bottom half of the first round, teams are starting to notice Green's impressive stature and body of tape as possibly the best defensive back on a Clemson team featuring numerous notable future NFL talents. He's big enough to be a factor in the run game, yet savvy as a deep playmaker capable of snatching INTs as well. This pick allows Arizona to slide Green into a secondary featuring Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, and Deone Buchanon. Simply put, throwing the ball against this secondary will no doubt be a chore week in and week out for opposing offenses.
The Rams have already collected 4 picks so far and gotten the center and QB of the future, they have gotten a starting CB and a linebacker as well. They have to keep working on defense and need help in the secondary badly. Simmons is small but has good ball skills. He is going to have to sit and learn for a bit, but he will be able to play a center field role if need be and in some zone coverage. He plays tougher than his size and is a willing tackler.
Houston-Carson may be the last player on the board who could be a possible conversion to press corner. They do have some depth at corner now, but safety is a little thin even after signing Gipson. Houston-Carson is a guy they can move around and is a very good value here.
** Previous Pick ** S DeAndre Houston-Carson.
** Previous Pick ** OLB Jatavis Brown.
Stupid teams do stupid things. The Jaguars used to be a stupid team, but they've made great strides recently, and now look like they're on the cusp of competing for the playoffs. They've taken another step toward that with this pick. Jalen Ramsey is one of the top two players in the draft. Jacksonville shouldn't have been able to obtain him with the fifth-overall selection, but it did. Congrats, Jaguars! You're one of the winners of the draft.

T.J. Green, S,
The Colts moved down and obtained a prospect who could've been chosen a bit earlier than this selection. I like it. T.J. Green is highly athletic, and it's possible that he might be able to play cornerback in the NFL. If not, he can settle in at safety, which was also a huge need for the Colts entering this weekend.
@Taylor Ignore him he's just another one of Walter's useless minions. This comment section is a joke just idiots with their brain-dead opinions. Walt is making money because he's a terrific con-artist. The two of us and BCE INC are the only three on here with any sense. We realize just how fake and gay Walt is.
