Silva's Post-Draft Top 150

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Round Nine

97. Ben Tate -- Has job security & durability questions.
98. Kelvin Benjamin -- Ideal opportunity as Cam's WR1.
99. Reggie Wayne -- Coming off late-October ACL tear.
100. Marvin Jones -- WR3/flex with playmaking ability.
101. Brandin Cooks -- Better bet than Stills to make noise behind Graham & Colston.
102. Mike Evans -- Consistency, volume are '14 concerns. Eventual elite TD scorer.
103. Martellus Bennett -- Fringe TE1 who can keep owners competitive at tight end.
104. Charles Clay -- See Martellus with less upside. 2013 was likely Clay's ceiling.
105. Chris Ivory -- Will stay involved, but CJ?K signing dealt Ivory a big fantasy blow.
106. Pierre Thomas -- Likely to cede work to Khiry Robinson. Pedestrian RB3/flex.
107. Darren Sproles -- Could flirt with flex value in PPR. Less attractive in standard.
108. Fred Jackson -- 33 1/2 when season starts. Bryce Brown threatens his carries.

Round Ten

109. Bernard Pierce -- Miserable '13 but Ravens tailback job should be up for grabs.
110. Terrance West -- Should get every opportunity to displace Ben Tate in Cleveland.
111. Colin Kaepernick -- Loaded arsenal with Stevie Johnson in SF, Crabtree healthy.
112. James Jones -- Favorite for receptions, yards, TDs in Raiders receiver corps.
113. Anquan Boldin -- Entering age-34 season. More mouths to feed in San Fran.
114. Khiry Robinson -- Saints top pure ball carrier. Could move up this list in camp.
115. Danny Amendola -- From 2013 early-round bust to 2014 late-round value pick?
116. Hakeem Nicks -- Question marks, but chance to revive career with Andrew Luck.
117. Cecil Shorts -- Garbage-time king on improving team, especially at his position.
118. Emmanuel Sanders -- Cody Latimer casts doubt on Sanders' breakout chances.
119. Brian Hartline -- Consistent inability to score touchdowns. Aim higher for WR3s.
120. Jace Amaro -- TE2, but shouldn't take long to become Jets' No. 2 pass catcher.

Round Eleven

121. Jermichael Finley -- Health the obvious issue. Will move up or off list altogether.
122. Eric Ebron -- Supreme talent, but incredibly raw. Breakout likely coming in '15.
123. Tyler Eifert -- In an ideal world, he'd emerge as the No. 2 to A.J. Green's No. 1.
124. Delanie Walker -- 2013 stats inflated by Tennessee's on-the-fly spread offense.
125. Ladarius Green -- Freakazoid talent. Needs Chargers to commit to feeding him.
126. Christine Michael -- Legitimately elite running ability. Marshawn Lynch in way.
127. Carlos Hyde -- Unlikely to be 2014 factor before midseason or late in the year.
128. Jonathan Stewart -- I'd rather take a late-round stab on Stewart than DeAngelo.
129. Maurice Jones-Drew -- I expect MJD to emerge as lead runner over McFadden.
130. Danny Woodhead -- More of a PPR pick. Could lose work to Donald Brown.
131. DeAngelo Williams -- Favorite to start, but no chance to be a difference maker.
132. Andre Williams -- Decisive, downhill bellcow back. Coughlin might fall in love.

Round Twelve

133. Johnny Manziel -- Upside QB2 definitely has chance to make year-one noise.
134. Alex Smith -- Can flirt with QB1 numbers, but best utilized as matchup play.
135. Andy Dalton -- New OC Hue Jackson plans to turn Dalton into game manager.
136. Mark Ingram -- Part of three-way RBBC with Pierre Thomas, Khiry Robinson.
137. Bryce Brown -- Could offer RB2 stats if C.J. Spiller or Fred Jackson went down.
138. Knowshon Moreno -- Will be exposed as ordinary outside of Broncos offense.
139. Ahmad Bradshaw -- Colts No. 2 RB option behind 2013 bust Trent Richardson.
140. Darren McFadden -- Competing with Jones-Drew for lead back work in Oakland.
141. Lance Dunbar -- Underrated talent behind starter with extensive injury history.
142. Chris Polk -- Would be Chip Kelly's main carrier if LeSean McCoy went down.
143. C.J. Anderson -- Closed last season ahead of Ronnie Hillman on depth chart.
144. Dwayne Allen -- More real-life than fantasy talent. May be useful TE1 streamer.

Round Thirteen

145. Antonio Gates -- Fading 34-year-old *should* take backseat to Ladarius Green.
146. Roy Helu -- Arguably better fit for Jay Gruden's playing style than Alfred Morris.
147. Greg Jennings -- Slot/Z receiver's game is good match for Bridgewater's arm.
148. Jordan Matthews -- Lots of year-one opportunity in one of NFL's top offenses.
149. Riley Cooper -- Jump-ball specialist lacks consistent weekly role in Eagles O.
150. Devonta Freeman -- Possible heir apparent to Steven Jackson, who's turning 31.
