Tannehill could be gone after this year in Miami. The Dolphins appear to be on the brink of a rebuild after releasing Suh, trading Landry & Ajayi. I used to be a big believer in Adam Gase, but I can't understand what he is doing with the Phins. I understand a culture change, but to trade Landry, keep paying Kenny Still and signing Amendola & Albert Wilson to contract that are triple there value is insane to me. Plus, they traded to take on Robert Quinn's and Daniel Kilgore's huge cap numbers. The Dolphins need a rebuild, but this is not the way to start it. Maybe they will correct themselves starting with selecting Patterson to be the new face of the franchise.
Lawrence, Oliver, Gary, Wilkins & Davis make this draft class a generational one for DTs. I can't remember a time when a class had 5 DTs that are talented enough to go in the top 15 picks. I don't believe that will happen due to team needs but the draft for DL this year will be memorable. Kyle Williams is on a 1/yr deal with the time and will likely retire after this upcoming season. The Bills need to replace them and have the luxury of choosing which DT will go first. Lawrence biggest assest is unlocked potential, Oliver's is his lighting fast get off and Gary's is the athleticism of a LB. Lawrence, Oliver and Gary all could be options for this spot and each is talented enough. I think the Bills will go with Lawrence due to his untapped potential.
With Lawrence gone, I think the Jets will add Oliver since comparisons link him to Aaron Donald, which I'm not surprised by. Both are relatively short, but use their speed, quick reflexes and instincts to be successful on the field.
Quenton Nelson was a phenomenal pick for the Colts. Andrew Luck finally gets some much needed protection. I think the Colts will build off of that and select Adams. Costanzo's age and salary cap number increase with each season so Adams might be his replacement and start off on the right side until the Colts part ways with Costanzo.
Donovan Smith has had his problems holding up so I can see the Bucs taking Little, plugging him in at LT and moving Smith to RT. Protecting Jameis Winston has to be the top priority.
Carl Lawson needs a running mate with Jordan Willis slowly developing and Michael Johnson aging. Bosa typically would be a top 3 pick, but the needs of other teams makes him drop to #6 where the Bengals would be thrilled to take him.
Out of the top 3 DTs, I think Gary will be the last selected. That's not a knock on him though, he's just as talented as the other two. The Cards could elect to go WR and take A.J. Brown, but I think the Cards will see that Gary's value at #7 is too good to pass up.
Corey Coleman might be done with the Browns so they might select his replacement. Having Gordon and Brown on the outside and throwing Landry in the slot just might make this WR corp one of the top in the league.
It seems like Seattle has been building the Offensive and Defensive lines for years and still has had no success. Now that LOB has been torn apart and the defense is an unknown variable, they need to rely on their offense. Wilson is their best player so keeping him protected in stead of scrambling for him life is probably a good place to start for this team.
After cutting Dez Bryant the Cowboys didn't replace him with a WR1, and think they can succeed without one. Oh, how stupid they are. In a passing league you need a WR1 and they will learn that. They should select Collin Johnson, a 6'6" WR from Texas that has Brandon Marshall type potential. Dak will need a receiving threat because Hurns, Williams & Beasley aren't going to cut it.
