I'll be surprised if any of those 3 make it past 15. Wilkins is being projected outside the top 10 by a lot of "experts". I just find it hard to believe with his personality and ridiculous athletic ability, that someone won't pick him up pretty early on.

Will be interesting to see how these 3 (and Bryant, and Huggins) perform at the combine compared to their colleagues.

Yeah I’m just surprised that what he means for our defensive front isn’t translating to the draft boards... oh wait... Deshaun-Watson...

McShay is not sold on Watson as a first round talent, but he thinks Watson’s intangibles coupled with “intriguing physical tools” will help him in the pre-draft process.

We don't have a first-round grade on Watson because of his inconsistent accuracy and decision-making (30 INTs the past two seasons). But his outstanding leadership skills and intangibles will help him during pre-draft meetings with teams, and he does have intriguing physical tools, including a good arm and athleticism. Kyle Shanahan's offense would be a good fit for Watson -- or UNC's Mitch Trubisky, who I thought about putting here. Shanahan has had success with mobile QBs in the past...

Love two of these picks

Big Dex to the Falcons makes a ton of sense - both from the standpoint of on and off the field help for the Falcons.

I also love the idea of Christian Wilkins to the Colts. Indy fans would love the personality that Wilkins has. Could definitely see him fitting in the culture and schemes there. This is coming from a former Indy resident and Colts fan.

Unfortunately for the Colts, I think Wilkins is going to blow some people away at the Combines (both from personality and athletic standpoint) and they may have to move up to get him.

I'd love if both Ferrell and Big Dex went in the top 5, but I'm not sure I see that happening. I do expect us to have two in the top 10 and 3 in the top 15-20, though.
