If you haven't seen his pro day do so now. His release is effortless and lightening quick with footwork that is flawless. At 6'2" 214 his size is adequate but his arm is bigger and accuracy remarkable. Though he isn't being pressured by a front seven during this event,he has already displayed an ability to excel under game situations. Most importantly the kid is intelligent and appears to be in command of his skills. I don't think Douglas can afford to pass on this opportunity. Sam will probably be okay but in another uniform.
Unless monstrous OT Panie Sewell slides to #23 for some strange reason, I think Douglas will concentrate on plugging up Guard and Center while moving McGovern to one of the Guard positions. I'd love to see one of my fav's TE Pat Friermuth fall into our lap at #34. While Pitts is the concensus #1,the former Penn State dandy is the most well rounded TE in the draft. The same mistake made with Darnold cannot be repeated with our new young QB. Getting him solid weapons will be putting him in the best position to develop and win! James Franklin developed Friermuth into a superior blocker complementing his ability to get down field and catch every thing thrown to him. At 6'6" 260 he's a QB's red zone dream. No doubt we'd better get ourselves a legit cover CB also. That could be satisfied with the signing of ex- Steeler Steven Nelson. Cutting him had nothing to do with lack of ability or production. It had more to do with Cap difficulties.
