I was only mildly aware of how this story was unfolding. With all the positive uplifting stories in the draft you have to really feel for some of these kids.
Agreed. I mainly see criticism on where Charbonnet was selected and not necessarily about the player himself due to us having K9.This entire draft class is a steal. I cannot find a weak link. Not one. No fillers here. The biggest criticism they are getting is regarding one of the guys I' most excited about, Zach Charbonnet. We are gonna be relying heavily on this guy. Not a reach at all. Boy, did John and Pete get their mojo back after shipping off Mr. I'm Limited.
I thought Hall was a late 2nd/3rd rounder (value). He's the one guy, in this class, I viewed as a reach.I like what they did overall in the draft. Not to be negative, but I don't really get the Hall pick? Seems to much like Mafe? I understand they are looking for high character guys, I just felt there were better options then Hall, I mean Branch, Ojulari, White, and Benton were sitting there? I'm ok with the Charbonnett pick, we now have the youngest/best 1-2 punch @ rb!
There are plenty of candidates. If JSN reverts to 2011 form, he's the clubhouse leader. I liked the Bradford pick too, but in the interior not sure you're really able to be labeled a steal.
It is just a guess at this point, but Kayshon Boutte might be the steal of the draft. Like Carter, he has tons of talent but had physical issues last year, off the field scandal, and a bad performance at the combine.IMO he can’t be seen as the steal of the draft rds 4-5 is about where he was expected to go, he had a lower graded value due to his physical testing I feel Oluatimi plays faster than his testing shows. Kenny McIntosh was the real steal of the draft he was thought of in rds 2-3 while being drafted in the 7th
To me, the steal of the draft is the player that best outperforms their draft position.
It could be a 3rd round pick that goes on to be selected as an All Pro multiple times. Or it could be a 6th or 7th rounder that earns significant playing time as a rookie and then goes on to have a real solid 10 years career. Or it even could be a player drafted in the Top 10 that goes on to win MVP of the league. All could be considered as the steal of the draft candidates.
I was speaking in generalities... if that wasn't obvious.I don't think a third-round pick has to be an All-Pro multiple times to be a "steal. "
Within Pete Carroll's system, Russell Wilson was a top-ten NFL QB several times and a top-three NFL QB once, but he "only" has one second-team All-Pro selection. But he was clearly a "steal" in the third round of the draft, and still would be even if he hadn't gotten that one second-team All-Pro selection.
A good (at least within the system!) starting NFL QB for ten years, with nine selections for the Pro Bowl, from overall pick number 75 is a steal.
Hey don't go after Hall!! I adopted him as my rookie. Take that back. Don't you be calling out my boy!I like what they did overall in the draft.

Don't get me wrong, I don't wish bad on the dude, At the end of the day I'm a Hawks fan, there were just other guys I felt made our team better. Hopefully Hall can at t least become a strong rotational DE.Hey don't go after Hall!! I adopted him as my rookie. Take that back. Don't you be calling out my boy!
