Coleman, on the other hand, does seem like he's a low value high upside option. Davis is likely to go earlier, but I'd probably spend my draft capital on Coleman later.
CD is actually really good vs Man Coverage and is mediocre vs the Zone. This weakness in his game coupled with the lack of Weapons this offense had last season made it pretty easy for defenses to phase him out of the offense. This season he'll be another year wiser (so he might fix this weakness in his game), it'll be harder for defenses to focus him with the additions of AH, AJB, and maybe the return of Delanie Walker (A bit of a question mark given the severity of his injury and age), what should be
an improved O-line, and a massive upgrade at backup QB if Mariota misses time and last season's production is probably his floor with the potential to post significantly better numbers. In the 8th round, he's got very good risk/reward appeal.
One of the offseason storylines was Mariota coming into this season heavier. He played at 215 lbs the past two seasons, which at 6'4 would place his BMI as the lowest of any starting QB in the NFL
. BMI is the best indicator of an RB's ability to be a workhorse at the NFL level; which leads me to believe it could also factor into a QBs ability to absorb hits.
Considering Corey Coleman can be had for basically nothing, I'm likely to be overweight on both of these guys
Some zig when others zag. I zug.
