You'd have to think Chris Jones would have a hard time passing up Tyrell Richards. He had a 5 hour day deciding to line up with the LB's, DL & DB's. And excelled. Just the kind of guy Jones likes. Some impressive performances at the combine.
Yeah, I agree pantsonfire – watched some of his tape - he is quite the talent, his versatility alone might be too good to pass on with the first overall pick. In a previous conversation we had on an earlier article, I thought C. Jones might drop down to pick up extra draft picks. With this guy – it might be a 50/50 scenario – Jones will have to weigh the risk/reward by trading the top pick and dropping back.
You nailed it JB. It's going to be an interesting draft day. I wonder who Elks get as the territorial. Rodeem Brown, OL out of U of A, isn't in the top 20 but was great. He'd be a good territorial pick should he be around for their #19 pick. See comment below:
"......he was nothing short of spectacular in the one-on-ones. Brown didn’t lose a single rep in a drill that the defence is designed to win, getting two full-value pancake blocks and completely stonewalling Canada’s top lineman Deionte Knight with his surprising anchor and natural leverage."
Yes - I watched Rodeem Brown too - the guy is tenacious, scrappy, and light on his feet! He could still be around for #19. Edmonton's OLine is quite solid as is - - but he would be a great pick up. Cheers!
