    5 years from now....

    We've poured over this draft class (as we do every draft class), and have reached a few conclusions about them. We think we may have an idea of how well (or not) these prospects may play in their professional careers. So, let's do this: roll the clock forward and make a statement on one or more of these players.

    It's April 2019. What do you got?

    Here's mine: With 5 seasons under their belts, Khalil Mack is considered a better player than Jadeveon Clowney.

    I'll give you another one: Jake Mathews has started in 80 consecutive regular season games.

    final one: Zach Mettenberger has more yardage and TDs than any QB in this draft.

    None of the QBs taken in round one are still starters.

    At least one RB should have been taken round one.

    This will be one of the deepest drafts ever and the proof will be how many players are still in the NFL.

    After winning Powerball and buying the team, I'm posting a poll that reads: "Which of the 2014 draft choices should the Rams re-sign?"

    Oh... and Jimmy Garoppolo is viewed as the top QB from the class.

    James Hurst will be a starting tackle in the NFL playing at a quality level.
    Andre Williams will be a true feature back in the NFL.
    Derek Carr and Tom Savage will be backups.
    Mettenberger will not be on an NFL squad.
    Zack Martin will be the best guard drafted in this class. Will remind people of Saffold.
    Eric Ebron will be considered a top 5 NFL TE.

    Now THAT's how you play game! Totally wrong on Mettenberger, but THAT's how you play the game, all the same.

    Five years from now a Matthews will be the best offensive lineman and wide receiver from this class.
    Five years from now we'll say the QB's taken after the 1st round are better than the 1st rounders(I think 3 go in the 1st).
    Five years from now HaSean Dix will have convinced us to take Alabama defensive backs again in the 1st.
    Five years from now Mack and Clowney will both be pro bowlers. But people won't wonder why Houston traded out of the #1 pick and took Mack instead of taking Clowney #1.
