Long-time listener, first time commenter, but friend of the Pod.
Name a Draft Prospect you believe is somewhat overrated by the media in terms of consensus rating that could make a slide down the draft come April and name a prospect who is currently not considered a viable candidate for the Broncos at 15 but come April will be near the top of the Broncos’ options when officially OTC (Ryan cannot use Viska haha)
Overrated: Andrew Thomas. Stiff blocker. A bit limited against speed and oversets to combat quick twitch which leads to vulnerability against counters. Much better in a quick pass scheme with a gap centric run game that probably will be a right tackle in the league. A bit top heavy. Solid tape but the UGA offense really protected his deficiencies with a heavy run game and a quick pass game. Strong run blocker but it’s a passing league. High floor but not the ceiling of Becton/Wirfs/Wills/Jones.
Underrated: Jalen Reagor. Denver needs speed at wide receiver in the worst way. Reagor isn’t simply a linear threat but can decompress defenses both horizontally and vertically. Sutton is a prototype X but post-Sanders, teams did everything they could coverage wise to limit Sutton, showing very little respect to other receiving weapons. Reagor’s big play ability across all levels of the defense would have synergistic effect on the entire offense by creating space because his speed can dictate coverage. While it is a deep WR draft class, the number of true multi-dimensional speed threats is limited. Ruggs, Reagor… Hamler? (TINY might be gadget only), and John Hightower.
