Can you explain why Madubulke and Josh Jones are good picks when other players drafted at the same positions have failed?
So I will do Madubuike first.
Madubuike has great athleticism 4.8 forty time and over 30 bench reps but as I said athleticism along isn't everything but his production against good teams was pretty good against LSU he had 2 TFL and 1.5 sacks, against Auburn he had 2 TFL and a sack, against Georgia he had 0.5 TFL and a half sack, against Alabama he didn't have a sack but he registered six to total tackles and 0.5 TFL.
He's had 40+ pressures each of the past two seasons. And he received very high run defense grades from PFF.
He fits a need but he's also a very good player who would immediately be better than any DT we have other than Kenny IMO.
Ok as for Josh Jones he never allowed a sack in college, received great grades from pff and others, had a dominate senior bowl, fills a need, and has a lot of positional value.
I considered him the BPA at 62.
Also having a good RT could go a long way in extending how many years Rodgers has left if Love doesn't pan out or Gute gets offered something he can't refused; and on the flip side if Love becomes a starter in few years having a good RT will make his transition into being a starter much easier.
What did you think of his performance catching the ball senior Bowl week?
How do you think MLF is going to use him? How do you see his skills translating to that function?
I have no opinion on his catching the ball at the senior bowl since he did not participate in the senior bowl.
I see MLF using him as a short yardage back primarily used on 4th&1 and goal line situations this year and feel he will do fine as such, but I feel Williams already is fine in that role and adds the element of being a pass catching option that Dillon still hasn't shown.
I also see him as RB3 on the depth chart as Jones and Jaamal are both great in the passing game as both receivers and pass protectors the added element of which will help keep opposing D's honest while Dillon needs work in that area.
