Darry Beckwith And William Moore Dropped From PFDN’s “Biggest Risks” List

Sunday, March 29th, 2009

I recently dropped ILB Darry Beckwith and S William Moore from the “Biggest Risks” list and added DE Lawrence Sidbury.  The “Biggest Risks” list does not necessarily mean I believe this group of players will be busts.   I rate the players on this list as having a greater chance of disappointing from a production standpoint based upon their likely drafted slot.

I took a look at more film on Beckwith from his junior year and believe he is a solid 2nd or 3rd round draft choice.  The same is true of William Moore.  He had a disappointing senior season, but the footage I saw of his junior year was impressive.  I still would not feel comfortable selecting Moore in the 1st round, but he is not a major risk in round 2.

I added Lawrence Sidbury to the list because too much is being made of his workouts.   How high a player is drafted is a big determinant as to whether the pick is a reach or a solid selection.  For example, some players are a major reach in the 1st round, but make sense in the 3rd.  Sidbury is a project and should be a 5th round draft choice, but may go as high as the 3rd round.  I also lowered Robert Ayers and James Laurinaitis on the list.  They are both solid players.  However, I view them as 2nd round selections that have a good chance of being picked in the 1st round.
