1. Jameis Winston, Buccaneers - Cam Newton
5. Brandon Scherff, Redskins - Branden Albert
15. Melvin Gordon, Chargers - Arian Foster
17. Arik Armstead, 49ers - Darnell Dockett
19. Cameron Erving, Browns - Orlando Franklin
I disagree with these 5
Winston is much closer to Rothlisberger in play style than he is Cam. Cam is much more of a run based QB, and not as good of a pure passer as Winston. Winston is like Rothlisberger. Mobile enough to make people miss and run when he needs, big strong arm, throws a lot of picks but also makes a lot of huge plays, gets out of situations he shouldn't. Only question is will he mature like Ben, and learn to tone down the picks.
Don't get the Scherff to Albert comparison at all.. Scherff is a strong run blocker who is suited to guard, while Albert is an elite pass blocker suited to LT.. I see Scherff compare a lot closer to guys like Reiff and Pugh then to Albert.
Arian Fosters is a great all around back, he can do everything and he isn't fast at all. Gordon is explosive unlike foster, but he isn't a great receiver or blocker. Bad comparison IMO. Closer compairs to Justin Forsett in my eyes.
Arik Armstead doesn't remind me of Dockett at all. IMO more like Geno Atkins. I have see a few different comparisons to Clais Campbell as well.
Erving and Franklin just don't fit in my brain. Mostly becase Erving is more suited to center than guard. Reminds me a little bit of Mike Pouncey.
