Greg Cosell: I Really Like WR Donte Moncrief As A Late 1st Round Pick
The great Greg Cosell of NFL Films and the NFL Match Up Show made his return to the Mac Attack today to preview the upcoming NFL Draft, for his take on Johnny Manziel, and what the Panthers need to do in round 1
Watching the most tape on a quarterback ever leading up to the NFL Draft, Cosell studied Johnny Football’s moves and thinks that his style will have to change somewhat in the NFL.
“No one enters the NFL as a finished product,” says Cosell who speculates that Manziel will have to change some of the offensive plays to cater more to a pro style.
“I like to call it the triple up affect. Look at Johnny Maziel and look at other quarterbacks in the NFL who would think would be similar. And you start with the size,” says Cosell who makes comparisons to Drew Brees, “a master of all sudelties of quarterback play,” and Russell Wilson where you’ll need more of a support around him to manage his QB play.
Based on the Carolina Panthers needs in the NFL Draft this year, Cosell says that if the team is looking for a bigger bodied, bigger radius & tough pass catching the football as a wide receiver, then they should look at drafting Kelvin Benjamin. If the team is looking for speed that can really run, Marquis Lee and Odell Beckham.
Another player that he liked on his tape watching is Ole Miss’ WR Donte Moncrief, 6’2 and 225 lbs who can run and would probably be a late first round pick. Cosell believes the Panthers lack speed at the WR position, and Moncrief would be a good fit for the team.
