Walter Football, the #1 most accurate mock from 2019 has Becton going 10th to the Browns, so, someone needs to send a bong mask his way for us to get him unless we do some moving up and down in this draft. The Dolphins did not do much of anything as far as moving up and down last year in the draft, but I think Greer sees his career under the microscope the next two years.
Mekhi Becton, OL, Louisville
It was well known going into the combine that Louisville's Mekhi Becton had a chance to put up some eye-popping numbers. Becton checked in at a massive 6'7" and 364 pounds, which on its own was impressive and matched up with his mauler-fest of film, especially in the running game. But Becton then created awe among onlookers by taking that frame and exploding for a 5.1-second Granted, straight-line speed doesn't equate to much for an offensive tackle. But the showing cemented him as a top performer in the event and just illustrates the pro-ready athleticism he That athleticism, never mind the upside once pro coaches get hands on him, has him as a potential first-round pick for teams on the hunt for a running-game force on the right side of the line.
Ideal landing spots: Las Vegas Raiders, Miami Dolphins, Cleveland Browns
Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin
With the status of RB1 in the air, Jonathan Taylor might've laid permanent claim to the spot. Taylor was uber-productive in college over three seasons, which isn't unexpected of a Wisconsin back (though it feels like everyone is underselling three seasons of 1,900-plus rushing yards). But Taylor's combine numbers and how they correlate to the pro game changes things. He measured at 5'10" and 211 pounds before blazing a 4.39-second performance in the 40-yard dash. He's essentially alone with Saquon Barkley in a bracket of their own given the weight and time there, as Next Gen Stats pointed out. While everyone can argue about the importance of running backs in today's NFL, the production and numbers in Indianapolis will have teams paying attention in the first two rounds. And any team even considering it is an ideal fit.
Ideal landing spots: Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Atlanta Falcons
Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor
After a strong showing at the Senior Bowl and a borderline historic showing at Indianapolis, Mims might have a chance to pull off an upset and be the first wideout off the board at the end of April.
Mims, after a 1,000-yard showing with 12 scores last season, wasn't one of the first names to come to mind at the position before the combine. But that's not the case anymore after he measured 6'3" and 207 pounds, ran a 40-yard dash in 4.38 seconds and recorded a vertical jump of 38.5 inches. In fact, those sort of numbers might have Atlanta Falcons fans sitting up. As Russell Brown of Cover 1 noted, Mims' entire body of combine work is eerily similar to that of Julio Jones.
Mims will be a first-round pick and would most benefit from a locale willing to feed him targets and allow him to grow from any developmental pains he might experience.
Ideal landing spots: Las Vegas Raiders, New York Jets, Miami Dolphins
Justin Herbert, QB, Oregonhttps://bleacherreport.com/articles/287 ... ine#slide8
Oregon's Justin Herbert continues to sit behind Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa in the consensus rankings for the 2020 quarterback class. But it isn't an understatement to say Herbert has done everything perfectly so far. Herbert looked good under the supervision of the Cincinnati Bengals coaching staff—owners of the first pick—at the Senior Bowl. He then hit the combine and measured just fine at 6'6" and 236 pounds. Then Herbert hit on-field drills and was throwing dimes all over the place. This happened against air, yes, but Herbert again rose to the occasion and looked like franchise-quarterback material. The best fits for Herbert aren’t hard to figure out—they're teams willing to invest in him in the first round and give him a chance to compete for an immediate starting spot.
Ideal landing spots: Miami Dolphins, Los Angeles Chargers, Indianapolis Colts
