In all the various mock drafts, is there one player you'd HATE for the Skins to draft at 15?

There are seemingly a bazillion ways the Skins could go with their first pick, given how many holes we have to shore up, and the seeming depth in this draft at some of those positions we have dire needs for.

But I wonder ... is there one player you would absolutely HATE to see the Skins burn their first round pick on?


For me ... that player is Daniel Jones.

This might be unfair. Because he's probably a nice kid, who has done some nice things. But drafting this kid in the first round means you think he's capable of being your franchise QB. For me .... he's a career back up.

I'd much rather the Skins shore up some other areas of weakness. Draft a difference maker at that spot, and grab a QB a couple rounds later.

OR ... if they're dead set on Daniel Jones, try and move back in the draft, pick up another pick, and draft Jones a little later. That'd make me feel a little better. A little.



I've grown to love the idea of that TE Hockenson kid from Iowa. I doubt he lasts to 15 though.



Who do you NOT want the Skins to draft at 15, that has popped up in a mock drafts?

Hate would be too strong, but any QB that isn't Drew Lock.

I know I am probably completely wrong on this, but Daniel Jones sounds to me like another Kirk Cousins with "meh" leadership.

Metcalf is a first round talent. He's big, strong, and fast as hell. He's a victim of a poor scheme that didn't utilize his talent. He will be a star in this league.

Could he be another in a long line of work out freaks that do not produce consistently on the field?
Plus with our history of injured players and drafting injured players, Metcalf has had his share. He had a neck injury that caused him to miss the remainder a season and required surgery.

From San Diego Tribune:
"....He likely has a fusion at one level to treat disc herniation and/or ligamentous instability. Many players have continued their career from a single level fusion surgery. ...... If he needed a second level fused, that indeed would jeopardize his career. He should be well healed by now. He also had a foot injury as a freshman, though there is not much information regarding that injury. The bigger issue might not be medical but his poor performance on agility drills compared to his measurable, which were off the charts."

Who gives a f*k about agility drills? Can he run a 9 route, a slant, or post route? Those are the routes that will make him elite.

He can't run the others well enough to keep DBs honest. They'll just back off him and have time to drive on the ball.

Are you blind or stupid? See the part of the quote I posted that is IN BOLD AND UNDERLINED. That is the point I was raising and why he might drop out of being a top 10 or 20 pick in this draft. He has an injury that if re injured could shorten or end his career. The rest of the quote about agility I do not give a fuck about.

What about the scheme didn't utilize his talent?

Ole Miss seemed to be able to use Brown's talent. He could run more than one route though.

You didn't seem run a lot of slants or post routes. If he didn't he would had three times the productions. He's going to be a star for whoever drafts him.

I guess 32 teams didn't agree on that.

Charlie Casserly's top QB (other than Murray who he says he keeps off to the side) is Daniel Jones. What do you know about him that Casserly doesn't?

U asking me? If so I think Jones is a solid QB comparable to an Alex Smith. Smart kid that doesn't take many big chances , can move well for his size. Lacks arm strength for deeper routes. He's been coached up by a great College QB coach / system but some are not high on him due to his underwhelming tape.
