  • Gholston

    Am I crazy in thinking Miami might take Gholston? I could see Parcel's invisioning a new aged LT with him. I dont know why but when putting my mock together, I kept thinking Parcels takes Gholston. lol

    Its possible. He does fit their scheme. I think Chris Long is a more complete player, and Gholston does "take some plays off".

      Gholston #1 overall, no way. Huge reach with so much other better talent to choose from.

          There is a chance. He is the best athlete on the board and has great skill. However he isnt the best player (Chris Long is) and I dont think it will happen.

            Couldn't have said it better myself Joey. Long is just more complete.

              There are so many other better athletes to choose from. Depending on who you believe there are anywhere from 4 to 7 better players.

              This is the #1 overall, and a really big deal. You gotta go with someone who is the most talented, has done more and proven more that Gholston.

                I don't think it's a reach whatsoever. Gholston is a realistic No. 1 pick, though I'd put him behind the two Longs... for now.

                  If I am Jeff Ireland then Gholston would be#2 on my big board.

                    I don't see it happening, but it definitely wouldn't be a huge reach. Gholston is an absolute monster.

                    What I was most impressed with is that he is the only player to get a sack against Jake Long. Also he tied Jake Long for most bench reps with 37 at the combine.

                    I wouldn't be totally shocked, but I agree Chris Long is a more complete player and a more safe pick at 1 overall.

                      Yeah but Gholston got owned by Ciron Black in the national championship game. He didn't do crap...I feel like the only person that watched this game.

                      And no offense to you bbix1134, but I absolutely hate the two words "safe pick."

                      I have a serious disdain for this word and I think anyone that thinks it is a means to determine who to draft simply has no idea what they are talking about and if I am saying 99% of the draft world doesn't know what they are talking about then thats what I think and I have no problem saying it.

                      If you draft one player over the other because he is "safer" that means you are scared. If you are scared that means you don't have confidnece in yourself as an evaluator to determine talent between players.

                      NFL front offices do not lack confidence especially in the new era of the NFL draft where scouting is better than it ever has been in the sport.

                        I agree with this "safe pick" opinion of yours, but I guess I'm alone in thinking that Gholston is the 5th or 6th best athlete of the draft.

                            Walter said it last year in his draft blog too.

                            I just think people talk about it for the sake of hypotheticial discussion but it is a theory I strictly oppose.

                            Are some players more risky than others? Yes, but there is a difference between being cautious/objective and then making a statement that you draft a player because he is "safer."

                            I think those are two different things and you don't assess value by "safe picks."

                              I think the definition of a safe pick is baring more and more weight on their legal troubles and in that case doesn't influence the confidence of an evaluation at all. I do see your point though.
