Full Version: I have a good feeling about our options at #14

I'm thinking that it is probable that one of these higher rated prospects will be available at 14. All it will take is two reaches in the top 13, and if either QB is picked before us, that qualifies as a reach IMO. We need CLE to be CLE! Here are the group of four I'm thinking about:

TE Howard
CB Lattimore
LB Foster
DE Barnett

If we go best available, one of these highly touted will be an Eagle. We can't go wrong with any of these, IMO.

I think Lattimore may be the best pick if he's there, but I can't get past my gut feeling that it's going to be McCaffery. Howard would mean Pederson would have to change his offense ... right? Barnett makes sense in the pressure concept, but how important are LBs to Schwartz's scheme?

I think Foster will be a special player, talent and nastiness. He's still my pick.

Going with Foster as well, 2nd would be lattimore.

I don't see any need at all for another TE even if celek is nearing the end of his career, Ertz and Burton are great players and can easily fill the role.

Another DE? unlikely even with Barwin's departure.

Howard is not just "another tight end."

Isn't that around the same time it ends?

At #14 you should be able to get somebody who is rated best at their position. That's why it's often better to draft for the player, instead of need, in the first round.

No - it stretches to week 17. His performances from the Cincinnati game and onward was very good.

Not Nelson Angholar good, but close.
