    Jaylen waddle is a bust. He doesn’t catch with his hands. Compare devonte smith highlights to his. Look how they catch the ball. If they can make him use his hands he will be the best receiver in the draft. At best mecole hardman

    Rams gettin a B+ without drafting an OL is insane and I dont get everyone praising fins, remember they traded a future 1st to go to the 6 spot to take Waddle, dude better be a deshaun jackson in his prime kinda player to justify that move imo

  18. czechpirc

    czechpircПре 9 дана

    @Atticus Levinworth I know Waddle is fantastic but im simply questioning fins trading a future 1st to get up to 6 for a wr who is good but not a blue chip player imo, I think people forget the move because it happened awhile back but it wouldve made more sense for fins to wait and see if Chase was there, cant imagine their target was Waddle all along

  19. Atticus Levinworth

    Atticus LevinworthПре 10 дана

    Waddle is probably the 2nd Best Reciever in the Draft. He has speed great hands and He is Tough as Nails. Dol0hins had a really good draft. Only reason chase went ahead of him is Height. If you are a Dolphins fan you are gonna love Waddle if he was healthy all year he would have probably won the Heisman.

    The grades should be given three years after each draft. Period. Absurd that these egotistical journalists are already "grading" choices of players who have not yet stepped on an NFL field.

  25. Eat My shorts

    Eat My shortsПре 10 дана

    It’s not really grading the players. I think it’s fine. Yes, player wise this is gonna be nowhere near accurate. They’re grading trades, how teams addressed they’re needs, did they go after a guy who they could’ve gotten later, did they get a guy who was supposed to go earlier, and so on. Yes they aren’t going to be accurate 3 years from now, but they’re not grading the players.

    Zach wilson remind me of porzingis people doubt him and he end up prove the doubter wrong

  65. Shane Fisk

    Shane FiskПре 8 дана

    @G17 Yt I mean I get what you’re saying, but Porzingis is not really that great of an example when he’s been pretty injury prone and inconsistent in Dallas. New York fans wouldn’t deny the talent, but they definitely have a case that the Knicks eventually won the KP trade, seeing how it’s all unfolded. For your purposes, I believe using Luka Doncic would probably be a better example. There wasn’t an extreme amount of doubt for him after the draft like Porzingis, but there was just enough for him to fall to 3, he then proceeded to blow those doubters out of the water. (Also just making it clear that KP is still a pretty good player, it’s just that using him in this example is a little flawed)

  66. G17 Yt

    G17 YtПре 10 дана

    @El Sol in 2015 knicks fans wanted to draft mudiay and winslow but they end up the taking a risk on a boom or bust player and dude became the third best player on the draft meanwhile both mudiay and winslow is a bench warmer in their current teams

  67. G17 Yt

    G17 YtПре 10 дана

    @El Sol if u are new york native u knew how good he is and exiting to watch before he went down the point is the media and new york fanbase doubt him booed him and claim he cant play will be a bust but he prove the doubter wrong because he can actually play isee similiarity with zach here most of jets fan wanted fields over him and remind me of the knicks fan wanted justice winslow over porzingis lmao but igot a feeling both justin and zach gonna do good

  68. El Sol

    El SolПре 10 дана

    Also people keep saying byu had wrak schedule playing against sub par competition ? Yet you all acting like he had usc , or ohio st type talent on his team. You cant teach that arm talent and his ability ti read a defense. Put him on an SEC school where he has top NFL type talent surrounding him every year and see what he would have been able to do. Remember Joe Borrow ? Did Nothing till he transferred to LSU. Name me an Ohio State QB who has Done anything in the Pros in the last 20 Years. That he didnt play against anyone has no merit ! Sam darnold , josh Rosen , A.j mcCarren , johny Manzel , Jammis Winston , Mitch Tribezki all these guys went to top programs and were bust. You cant judge a player fir where they played ball and say there gonna be good or bad hello Romo played at Northern Illinois or some D 2 school and was a pro bowler multiple times. So anyone using that excuse is foolish.
