Your Final O's Draft Predictions!

Recommended Posts

Not a fan of getting too cute with this.  I don't want to pass on Martin to meet one player's overslot price tag.  I would hope we end up with overslot guys at 30/39 and 74 - maybe leaving with four of the top 40-45 prospects in the draft.  The question is - if we go this route, who is the guy we take at second overall who is taking the big discount - not sure Veen or Gonzales provide the type of discount we are looking for though Gonazales really wants to be in Bmore.

I don’t like this.  Take Martin. 

Could just be posturing to get Martin locked into a number before the pick.

Another somewhat wild rumor per cbssports is that multiple front offices have confirmed that there is one team in the top 10 that is considering punting on this year's draft.  That would involve drafting a player who would refuse an offer at 40% of slot and retaining the pick (or picks) for next year's draft - to have the largest bonus pool in that draft.  Interesting.

It is too difficult to guess IMO considering we have at least 20 possible options at 30, but I will go Martin, Walker, Ginn as Getz did above.  That would give us three very strong prospects including likely our fourth top 100 prospect entering next season.

True.  Hopefully that’s the case.

Latest pre-draft mocks from Callis and Mayo are similar through 14 picks.

Key takeaways - both have Os taking Martin at 2.

Bitsko gets out of the first round.
