I was just looking at Mel Kiper Todd Mcshay's latest mock NFL draft, and both have one of my supplemental picks from last year going in the first round to the Rams and Colts! I picked a crazy athletic offensive tackle who had recently switched from basketball, and he is also from England, because he had an interesting story and crazy potential. JACKPOT! I finally might get to join the first round pick club! Here is Mcshay's analysis of 6'5 310 Menelik Watson!
Pick analysis: Whether he ends up at left tackle, right tackle or even as a potentially dominant guard, Watson has a high ceiling and the Colts have to get better along the offensive line. The franchise has arrived at quarterback -- time to protect him. Here is Kiper's analysis
Analysis: At No. 16, Watson, who is from England, would have been a reach; that's why I went with Austin at 25.
Here, where I had Keenan Allen in the first mock and Sylvester Williams in the second for the Rams, Watson could work. The Rams have a need at tackle, and Watson is a very talented athlete who is light on his feet for his size. He gets into sets quickly and with a lot of depth. Has long arms and can ride speed rushers past the pocket off the edge. But he's raw, and his football instincts need to develop.
