There will be SIX quarterbacks taken in round one. Book it!
Speculation: When Kraft made an offer to Josh McDaniels to stay, he told McDaniels that he could pick his own quarterback in the next draft for when Belichick and Brady retire. He will want a guy that can run a spread system. He will look for guys like Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson to drop, but he will settle on Mason Rudolph.
I personally don’€™t like Rudolph as a prospect, but he plays quarterback, so he will go earlier than expected. Seeing him end up in New England may be the best situation for him to learn and play with the best. (Justin)
Previous Pick: Hayden Hurst
Despite having a strong team, the Eagles need help in the secondary. They traded for Ronald Darby from the Bills last season, but their weaknesses at corner were exposed more than once last season.
Oliver has size at 6-foot-1 and production to match. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds to showcase his speed, and his combination of size and speed will certainly be useful in matching up against the likes Odell Beckham Jr. and potentially Dez Bryant, if he stays in the NFC East, in the division.
The Eagles defensive line can help make corners look better in year one, and Oliver could certainly benefit from that. (Stephen)
