if you are going to claim an update on Feb 2, you should at least make it look like you've been watching the NBA this season. Kevin Martin hasn't been the Wolves 2 for months. A guy named Wiggins is the starter there. Maybe you've heard of him. They've also been playing LaVine as the backup there recently. They will not be drafting a 2 based on need. If Murray were the best available, that's possible. He isn't. Stick with football. It seems what you know.
@S.n.i.f.f.y Thanks for the feedback S.n.i.f.f.y.! I completely missed White going back to school, so I will change that pick as soon as I can. I can also definitely see Leonard Floyd going higher, but I just couldn't find a place to slot him that made a lot of sense. I'll probably end up mocking him top 20 in my next update. And I'm glad you like the Rams trade! I think that with a quarterback, that team could at least challenge for a playoff spot, though the difficulty of their division/the NFC will make it hard for them to get there. Thanks again for the read!
Strengths: Nice height and solid build with room to gain bulk ... Long arms ... Holds up well against the run ... Strong football player and can disengage ... Decent pass rusher ... Has solid instincts and does a decent job of recognizing play action.
Weaknesses: Athleticism isn't there ... Stiff in the hips and doesn't have much balance or flexibility ... Motor is very inconsistent ... Size is good, but as of now it isn't anything to rave about (must gain more strength) ... Lacks explosion when the ball is snapped ... Production is simply average, especially considering he was on the same line of Lawrence Jackson and Sedrick Ellis ... Unimpressive overall skill set.
Summary: The most overrated player in the country. I can't believe he is in the top five of so many mock drafts right now (including No. 1 on Todd McFraud's) ... The hype is going on because of whom he plays for; not his individual skill ... Production isn't impressive when you consider the talent around him ... Needs to step up.
Player Comparison: Igor Olshansky. Can't play three-technique, but can be an adequate nose tackle in the 4-3; best fit is at five-technique in the 3-4 where he can plug the run going against offense tackles using his size to his advantage.
