    And I'm not just saying this to be funny. The amount of players that get injured once going vegan is pretty crazy. Cam's career has plummeted since going vegan and he cannot heal. The other bad part is loss of muscle. Some guys will be like hey I feel great I lost a few lbs, well those lbs are usually coming from lean tissue, especially if you are already in great shape. Performance decreases, recovery decreases, strength decreases, cognitive ability decreases, etc. Now I have no idea when he switched over to vegan, if he's been doing this his entire career then ok, but I don't see him staying healthy this season.

    2. Baltimore Ravens This Class In One Sentence: They are just boringly good at this Pre-Draft Needs LB, EDGE, OL, WR Selections 1. 28. Patrick Queen | LB | LSU 2. 55. J. K. Dobbins | RB | Ohio State 3. 71. Justin Madubuike | DT | Texas A&M 3. 92. Devin Duvernay | WR | Texas 3. 98. Malik Harrison | ILB | Ohio State 3. 106. Tyre Phillips | G | Mississippi State 4. 143. Ben Bredeson | G | Michigan 5. 170. Broderick Washington | DT | Texas Tech 6. 201. James Proche | WR | SMU 7. 219. Geno Stone | SS | Iowa Picks Heading In 1. 28. 2. 47. 2. 60. 3. 92. 3. 106. 4. 129. 4. 143. 5. 157. 7. 225. Favorite Pick Geno Stone – I know it’s extremely weird to pick a 7th round pick as a favorite in a class I really like, because not a lot of those guys get to hang around. But I saw Stone late on and I just think he’s a really good player. At 5’10, he’s obviously not the biggest or the most physically gifted, but he’s so physical and relentless it’s hard to not notice him back there. He’s really smart too and that high playing IQ covers up a lot of his deficiencies elsewhere. Most Questionable Pick The Ravens were expected to invest in edge help at some point in the draft with Judon coming back on the franchise tag and other options being maybes to break through. They do have a more explosive front this year and have added a couple of good second-level blitzers, so I wouldn't be too downhearted about their prospects in generating pressure with one of the best DCs in the biz. Overview It’s weird how over the years that the Patriots have got the reputation for hoovering up all the good players at the end of each round, when in fact the Ravens have been better at that for years now. They’ve done it again here, amassing another haul of talent and showing the league how you replenish a roster through the draft even though most of the league will pay absolutely no attention. That started at pick 28, with Patrick Queen at off-ball linebacker which was 100% not a focus or need of this football team according to Ravens fans. Queen has rare closing speed and explodes into gaps to shut down runners before plays can develop. He’s got easy movements in space which indicates he could match up regularly on tight ends if needed. JK Dobbins at 55 wasn’t the running back matched to the Ravens particularly often in the draft process. This pick feels like DeCosta trusting his scouting department's evaluations and at that spot he was the only one of the big five still left on the board and he's a decent fit for what Roman likes his backs to do. Dobbins is an easy accelerator and beats opponents to the edge with his burst. He runs with patience with vision and has good hands and can operate as a receiver. Justin Madubuike is definitely more of a Ravens pick and has an exciting blend of speed of power in his arsenal. His motor isn’t always on, but could be a rotational player in an exciting Ravens defensive line next year. Devin Duvernay and Malik Harrison rounded out a really intriguing day two where the Ravens had a number of selections. Duvernay does his best work as a vertical receiver from the slot, he’s kind of linear but will give the Ravens more options down the field and he’s an excellent ball tracker. Harrison is an old-school thumper at 6’3 and close to 250 pounds and generates a real pop on contact. I can imagine him being a nice compliment to the more finesse game of Queen’s. Tyre Phillips in the 3rd was okay and the Ravens don’t tend to make bad decisions with draft picks on offensive line picks. He’s an enormous guy at 330 pounds and over 35 inch arms and strong as an ox. He just lacks fundamental movement skills, which might show up more on other teams than in Baltimore. He does some versatility to play guard or tackle, which I suppose is something the team needed. Ben Bredeson I liked quite a bit, he's kind of the anti Tyre Phillips - doesn't have archetypal length, but he is smart and technical. I would not be surprised to see him starting soon. Broderick Washington was a little off my radar, I know he played in a weird alignment at Texas Tech – almost on the edge at over 300 pounds. He’s probably one to groom for the future. James Proche in the 6th just has exceptional ball skills, has so many highlight reel plays. A smaller receiver without wow measurables or athleticism, but he’s a technician who probably needs that to be that at an exceptional level to find a starting role in the NFL.

    Horrible decision by the league. The point was to try to make a fairer game and the refs basically decided to be ignorant and indignant, essentially protesting because they can't stand being called out for cheating teams out the game. They are once again never held accountable. Stupid.

    1. Denver Broncos This Class In One Sentence: What happened to Elway and why is he good at his job now? Pre-Draft Needs WR, OL, CB, DL Selections 1. 15. Jerry Jeudy | WR | Alabama 2. 46. K. J. Hamler | WR | Penn State 3. 77. Michael Ojemudia | CB | Iowa 3. 83. Lloyd Cushenberry | C | LSU 3. 95. McTelvin Agim | DT | Arkansas 4. 118. Albert Okwuegbunam | TE | Missouri 5. 178. Justin Strnad | LB | Wake Forest 6. 181. Netane Muti | G | Fresno State 7. 252. Tyrie Cleveland | WR | Florida 7. 254. Derrek Tuszka | DE | North Dakota State Picks Heading In 1. 15. 2. 46. 3. 77. 3. 83. 3. 95. 4. 118. 5. 178. 6. 181. 7. 252. 7. 254. Favorite Pick Netane Muti – I know he’s had a litany of non-connecting injuries at Fresno State, but getting him in the 6th is still fantastic value. He would have been a top-tier interior prospect in this class, if it wasn’t for a spate of unrelated injuries at Fresno. When he did hit the field, he played with rarely matched strength inside and bulldozed interior defenders for fun. Most Questionable Pick Some won’t like the Hamler pick at 46, but I really like it given the general theme Denver were going for. Overview What a difference a year makes. People were calling for Elway to lose his job not that long ago (which always felt unlikely), but some promising performances from their 2nd round quarterback last season followed by a very handsome looking free agent class and now a sparkling draft class, things are looking a lot rosier in the garden. GM of the Year could be on the cards for this turnaround. Obviously that's all if they can transform that re-built roster into on-field success and there’s good reason to think they are a credible threat in the AFC West again. Things got off to an explosive start with the Jeudy pick at 15. Denver had been linked closely to Ruggs throughout the process, but Jeudy is more than a decent compromise here and people seem to have forgotten just how good he is. He has rare quickness in out of breaks and phenomenal route speed. He’s devastating on quick slants with his ability to find space as a runner and prolific at finding the end-zone which is an underrated skill for a receiver. Hamler in the 2nd was slightly indulgent, but when your team needs explosive weapons to compete in the AFC West, then why not go all out. Hamler is only 20 years old and has some immediate growth to do, but he’s got ridiculous lateral agility and acceleration. He reaches top speed in no time at all and is a blur with the ball in his hands. His hands have been a concern and clearly that needs to improve, but he has the tools to change the way a defense operates. Denver were set-up well with the picks to have a good day two and they took advantage of that. Michael Ojemudia kicked things off at 78 and he was probably in a third tier of corner in this class. He ticks both size and speed boxes, but needs a little technique work. But he does have excellent ball-skills, which is too often overlooked. I really liked the Lloyd Cushenberry selection, who could have gone much earlier than at 83. Beloved at LSU, where he was a real leader of that offensive line. Competitive and powerful enough inside, he should find work early at center or guard. McTelvin Agim is a former five-star recruit and whilst he didn’t live up to that tag at Arkansas, he had a good week at the Senior Bowl where he showcased a bit of burst to go with good size and length on the interior. He needs to work on his run defense to become a full-time contributor, but could really add something as a third-down interior rusher. Albert Okwuegbunam caught a lot of attention at the Combine with the fast forty time and whilst you don’t always see that speed on tape, you do see some impressive flashes of athleticism as a pass catcher. He’s still raw right now, but he’s a nice developmental project to work in. I also really liked the move to select Justin Strnad in the 5th round who really seemed to come on at the end of the season, doing his best work in space and he compliments the harder-edged skill set on the roster currently. Tyrie Cleveland is yet another athletic specimen whose production didn’t match the profile in Florida. He's returned kicks and was an ace gunner on special teams there and that might be his way onto the active roster in the first instance. The pass-rusher Derrek Tuszka was very productive at a lower competition level, but has a very transferable athletic profile for the NFL – so could be one to hang onto and see if he develops. I have a feeling there's something with him that's quite interesting.

    From all the reports And the video of him on Bengals.com, it doesn’t sound like AJ plans to skip training camp for a new deal. Sounds like he is trying to schedule a get together to throw with Burrow and the new receivers which is great to see. He had a lot of positive things to say about both Burrow and Higgins.

    Thanks. Also the Saints IMO have proven to be pretty good talent evaluators on the OL. Strief, Armstead, Ramzy, McCoy, Nicks, Evans, Brown, and many more. If there is one position that if the Saints draft high that I don't worry about, it's the OL. We went from losing Unger to replacing him with someone who was as good if not better as a rookie. Now if this was any other position, yeah I would have 0 faith that they actually found a replacement/upgrade as their hits on other positions have been pretty poor overall when drafting high.

    Personally in my years playing rugby I always loved teammates like Drew. I don’t need guys who are going to be intense 24/7 as long as they’re giving 100% on the field. A guy who keeps practices fun and keeps the mood light on game days is something I really appreciate. My favorite thing about being on a team was just being with the guys and he’s someone who would always have me smiling.

    Looking at the distribution of bye weeks for 2020, it looks like more than 2/3 of the league has byes after Week 8. Assuming that holds true for previous years, it stands to reason that about 2/3 of the playoff field in a given season come from the post-Week 8 sample of roughly 2/3 of the league. Literally all you've really established is that more teams have byes after Week 8 than not. It really just looks like the poster child for correlation not meaning causation. Like, the fact alone that the Patriots never had a bye week before Week 8 in your sample already skews things enough on its own. For there to actually be something to this you'd probably have to identify individual teams over the past several years that have consistently made the playoffs when they had bye weeks post-Week 8 but missed the playoffs when they had early bye weeks. Even then it's probably not enough to look at this as a trend... but we don't even have the data points that would point towards a trend right now.

    I feel 7-9 but a better 7-9. We went 7-9 and were bottom 5 in team total DVOA because we were pitiful offensively. I think we are an additional solid play maker on both sides of the ball away from being truly in the mix for either the division or at very least WC. It’s going to be a better football team. It just may not translate in the win loss column this year. Macagnan really just did a number on this roster and missing so many drafts has really been hard to overcome.

    He is very familiar with Mike Zimmer's defensive scheme. We went through some coaching struggles during his tenure, so I would guess he probably won more than he lost, but there were games where we had our way with him too. He had the good fortune of facing the Vikings when the Childress era came to an end, and then when we were being coached by the inept Leslie Frazier. Throw in Christian Ponder and about 4-5 years during the Zimmer era when we had a new QB every season. To sum it up, he was fortunate to have coached against us during a tough decade for the Vikings, but he also did a good job and took advantage of any edge he had. I'd say that if you are playing the Vikings, it would definitely be an advantage having MM coaching your team rather than The Clapper. By the way, I think the Cowboys are going to have a VERY good season in 2020 if we end up playing a fairly normal schedule in spite of all the COVID-19 stuff going on. Good luck.

    That's what playing spoiler to the 'old guard' clubs, and coming out of nowhere to establish yourself with jarring personality/impact will get you. The Ravens are the team of Thugs/Goons, and of course low end QBs that can't truly hang with the other stars at the position. That perception of us is what makes it so much more enjoyable when we win. X X ==\.__./ ==X X . God do they hate it.
