Yes, Howard was a terrific need, value and luxury pick at No. 19 with the good fortune of so many teams deciding not to take the uber-athletic tight end. Evans can be a good strong safety, but other than that, there were some questionable position picks and reaches. Good thing the Bucs are already set to push for a playoff spot.
Louis Lipps Game Jersey
Alexander Mogilny Game Jersey He’s definitely smart enough to expand that. Scott has good hands and the slot receiver could be a nice pickup early on the final day of the draft. UPDATE: Scott has signed with the Chargers, who drafted Clemson receiver Mike Williams in the first round.
Ben Boulware, LB, Clemson Boulware may be a bit undersized at 6 feet and 236 pounds, but he is a passionate natural leader who was extremely productive at Clemson with 116 tackles last season for the national champions. His superior football IQ and instincts help compensate for limited athleticism. Boulware can still get sideline to sideline and takes excellent angles to the ball. He’s a very coachable player who may not measure out well, but is just a damn good football player. UPDATE: Boulware has signed with the Panthers.
Darius English, DE, South Carolina English is tall and lanky at 6-6, 245, and a natural pass rusher. He has a quick first step, but hasn’t yet converted his speed to power and is not that great against the run. He’s a bit of a one-year wonder with 60 tackles last season, to nearly match his career total prior to his senior year. His 13 tackles for loss were more than his 11 stops behind the line before 2016 and he had nine sacks last year after registering just six in the previous three years. UPDATE: English has signed with the Falcons.
