2016 NFL DRAFT IDP BIG BOARD

Darron Lee

Welcome to my first annual IDP Big Board for the upcoming 2016 NFL Draft, there is so much IDP talent that’s incoming that it’s hard to find a starting point.  I jot down pretty much my top 50 and the type of impact they’ll provide in the IDP community and this will all change once the draft comes and goes, then my actual rankings will be out (positional and top 75 overall).  I love more guys than the average draftnik and down on others whereas other draftniks are higher on, I could be wrong but then again I was higher on Jamie Collins, Telvin Smith, Kwon Alexander, Avery Williamson and Jordan Hicks than most – I create trends, not follow them. *CHEERS* Draft Season is here (so is Free Agency) I welcome all feedback and discussion, you could provide me things I may have missed on some guys as we all got a different set of eyes and look at things differently, we’re here to help and grow together while dominating your league.

IDPwithBEE 2016 NFL DRAFT IDP BIG BOARD
RK PLAYER TEAM/POS QUICK HITS
1 MYLES JACK UCLA/LB explosive all-around LB, immediate impact
2 DARRON LEE OSU/LB phenomenal athlete, quick to the ball, playmaker
3 JOSHUA PERRY OSU/LB underrated athlete, will be a 3-down LB in the NFL
4 DEFOREST BUCKNER OREGON/DL can play inside/outside, think Calais/Tuck
5 NOAH SPENCE E.KENTUCKY/DL stupid quick off the edge that blends will with his power and keep his head straight, don’t throw away talent like Johnny.
6 JOEY BOSA OSU/DL disruptive force, only bummer for me is if he moves to OLB in a 3-4 scheme
7 REGGIE RAGLAND ALABAMA/LB thumper, could move to OLB
8 LEONARD FLOYD UGA/LB dynamic edge rusher
9 KEVIN DODD CLEMSON/DE under the radar pass rusher, patient and can drop back into coverage I could see him play OLB or DE
10 EMMANUEL OGBAH OKLAHOMA STATE/DL great athletcism with size and power
11 ROBERT NKEMDICHE OLE MISS/DL potential to become one of the top defensive players out of this draft, needs to stay focused
12 SHAQ LAWSON CLEMSON/DE average athlete but is active & intense, will get to the QB
13 JAYLON SMITH NOTRE DAME/LB unfortunately he’ll miss the season recovering from a serious knee injury, if he comes back from that he’s arguably the best LB in this class has the do-it-all tools
14 JALEN RAMSEY FSU/DB freakish athlete, could play CB or S – S would be ideal for his future IDP owners
15 KENTRELL BROTHERS MIZZOU/LB solid rangy LB, wraps up potential to become an every down LB, think David Harris-ish
16 ANTONIO MORRISON FLORIDA/LB quick off edge, sideline to sideline speed & can drop back in coverage possibly my “Kwon” this year
17 SU’A CRAVENS USC/LB needs to go to a team that’ll use him on the edge, that’s where he’ll excel
18 DEION JONES LSU/LB not physical but has no problem getting into coverage & missed too many tackles (improve in this area)
19 JORDAN JENKINS UGA/LB can play OLB or DE, built for either and athletic too
20 MILES KILLEBREW S.UTAH/DB under the radar box safety right now, closing speed and instincts this is your “Deone Bucannon” of the NFL Draft
21 BLAKE MARTINEZ STANFORD/LB solid against run, underrated athlete
22 CARL NASSIB PSU/DL led nation with 15.5 sacks, has some solid push/power, quick off snap
23 SHILIQUE CALHOUN MSU/DL nice mix of pass rushing moves & improved in shedding blocks, potentially can play 3-4 OLB
24 JONATHAN BULLARD FLORDIA/DL good against the run & can move inside in sub packages
25 VERNON BUTLER LaTECH/DL disrupts pocket, good use of hands going to be tremendous at the next level
26 SHELDON RANKINS LOUISVILLE/DL versatile, quick and explosive
27 TYLER MATAKEVICH TEMPLE/LB not going to blow you away with speed but is a pure football player, has the intangibles you want (instinctive, smart and fiery) always around the ball
28 DARIAN THOMPSON BOISE ST/DB another rookie that’ll likely rise up once draft hits, closing speed is there and has range in coverage, ball hawk in run support -
29 DOMINIQUE ALEXANDER OKLAHOMA/LB rarely misses tackles but i see limited upside here
30 KYLER FACKRELL UTAH STATE/LB sort of a poor mans Connor Barwin, could play at all 3 phases of the LB position
31 JOSH FORREST KENTUCKY/LB thick thumper against the run with a blend of athleticism, potential to be a 3-down LB but can excel as a 2-down LB
32 YANNICK NGAKOUE MARYLAND/LB solid edge rusher who has the potential to move up a handful of spots here, comfortable in space
33 KAMALEI CORRERA BOISE ST/DL jumped out on tape, can get after the QB and drop back into coverage (potential to rise in actual rankings once draft comes)
34 NICK VIGIL UTAH STATE/LB stout run defender & produced 144 tackles last year
35 MACKENSIE ALEXANDER CLEMSON/DB arguably the best pure corner in the draft, very smooth and fluid, could put up Ronald Darby type numbers in rookie season
36 JAMES COWSER S.UTAH/DL finished as the #1 DL in the 3-cone drill, disrupts pocket & gets after the QB
37 SCOOBY WRIGHT ARIZONA/LB just didnt jump out to me on tape but could land in a decent situation where he can be productive, ok against the run, lack of speed though
38 DADI NICOLAS VaTECH/LB solid off the edge with some speed
39 ELI APPLE OSU/DB physical corner & tall – could post some Breeland type seasons
40 ANDREW BILLINGS BAYLOR/DL run stuffer, pushes pocket with solid strength/power
41 BRONSON KAUFUSI BYU/DL solid athleticism, good hands, best suited as a 4-3 DE. Not bendy but a good pass rusher nonetheless oh and he’s big 6’6 and has the potential to rise once my rankings hit after the draft, again – so much DL talent it’s ridiculous
42 SHELDON DAY NOTRE DAME/DL quick, powerful hands and strong
43 JEREMY CASH DUKE/DB plays around the LOS, potential hybrid LB/S type player
44 VERNON HARGREAVES FLORIDA/DB love Vernon, thing is he’s a CB and CB’s are dime a dozen in IDP he could have a Verrett type IDP profile
45 KENDALL FULLER VaTECH/DB possibly another Byron Jones/Eric Rowe situation where he’d be better suited with a move to safety at next level
46 KENNY CLARK UCLA/DL disruptive force in the backfield, good hands upside IDP profile of Ngata (BAL days)
47 KARL JOSEPH WVU/DB better suited as a FS at next level as tackling isn’t his strong suite, has some serious potential/upside to be near the top but in IDP world, we like safeties that pile up tackles, sorry Karl.
48 CHRIS JONES MISS ST/DL interior pass rusher inside, so much DT talent in this draft there’ll be a lot of shuffling after draft.
49 WILLIAM JACKSON HOUSTON/DB tall, blazing speed corner – could put up numbers in zone scheme
50 ALEX MCCALISTER FLORIDA/DL situational pass rusher (Ealy type) nice blend of athleticism and quick off edge
