Hello again everybody, and welcome back to Sports Krunch with DKrom, I’m your host David Kromelow. (http://sportskrunch.com/) As we speak, NFL teams are preparing for the third and final phase of OTA’s, which will give them their first good look at their rookie classes. Thus we here at Sports Krunch with DKrom continue our division-by-division breakdown of every club’s 2017 draft class tonight with the AFC South. Joining us to analyze the drafts of the Jaguars, Titans, Colts and Texans is our good friend Jake Arthur of profootballspot.com. Jake’s Twitter handle: @jakearthurpfs 1. For the second straight season, a RB was drafted with the fourth overall pick as the Jaguars went with Leonard Fournette. What kind of season do the Jaguars need from Fournette in order to contend for the playoffs? Does he need to be as good or better than Ezekiel Elliott was last year? 2. Can Cam Robinson be the Jaguars left tackle of the future or do you see him as more of a right tackle or guard? 3. With the first of their two first round picks (#5 overall), the Titans selected Western Michigan WR Corey Davis. This pick was panned by some in the media, notably Michael Lombardi. Do you think he fits in the Titans run-first offense and can he start on day one? 4. The Titans needed secondary help badly, so they drafted USC CB Adoree Jackson at 18 overall. Jackson was arguably the most athletic prospect in this year’s draft and you can consider his ceiling to be like Devin Hester, with starting CB traits. Thus, they will probably use him in the return game just as much as on defense. Some also recommended that the Titans should have a package of plays for him on offense, and I think you can utilize him in space or on gadget plays that fit the Titans exotic smashmouth scheme perfectly. Do you think they should feature Jackson on offense? 5. I was personally a huge fan of what the Titans did in the third round. They tripled down on offensive weapons by selecting WR Taywan Taylor (Western Kentucky) and TE Jonnu Smith (Florida International). What does each bring to the offense? 6. Is the ‘one-year wonder’ label on Malik Hooker a red flag for you personally? 7. Some had Quincy Wilson as a top-15 talent, but some scouts were unsure what his best fit was. Is Wilson a CB or S? 8. What is Terrell Basham’s long term role with the Colts? Is he just a situational pass rusher or can he play the run and drop into coverage as well? 9. When is the earliest we see Deshaun Watson on the field this year? 10. Did the Texans in your opinion get a steal with Zach Cunningham in round 2? Do you think this could be Brian Cushing’s final season with the Texans? 11. D’Onta Foreman was a controversial pick. Some believe he doesn’t play up to his size and he reported to OTA’s overweight. Do you think he’ll be an immediate upgrade over Alfred Blue? They obviously need somebody who can become that full time number two back. 12. Among all four teams combined, who was the best pick and worst pick? 13. Who was your favorite pick on day 3 for each team and why? 14. In 3-4 years, which of these four draft classes will be the best in practice? And that’s all for today here on Sports Krunch with DKrom. But we plan to be back tomorrow with a new guest, Nick Kendell, to break down the draft classes of the AFC West…so stay tuned.
