  1. 2019 NFL Draft Thread v.2

    Agree with the last couple of posts. I would not want Jacobs at 4. Not with the number of very good defensive players who could come straight in and upgrade our putrid defense. At the end of the year, our running game looked pretty decent. And that was with Martin and Richard. I'm all for spending a 2nd or 3rd round pick on a RB. That can often yield good results. I think the relative on the whole team in having a very good RB in comparison to a couple of good ones is minimal. Especially when lack a single playmaker on defense. Perhaps when we have fewer holes and more quality in the premium positions.

    I actually thought Good played well in place of Jackson. Didn't notice any drop off. If you read his story it's quite interesting. He was well thought of by the Colts, but then his brother got killed and his then online coach (who has since been canned) mistreated the situation, expecting him to 'man up' and get on with it so Good asked to be released. If KO is traded, I'd like to see Good and Feliciano brought back and then a mid rounder spent on a G in what looks like a ridiculously deep draft for olineman.

    Agreed. I think a clever, under the radar FA pickup and perhaps a mid rounder would round that group off nicely.
  4. 2019 Free Agency Thread

    My feelings precisely regarding trading down if those 3 aren't there. There is a group of about 5/6 players who then sit in a group behind them who I wouldn't be able to seperately at this stage so I'd be all over getting an extra pick and choosing whoever is left. At the moment, I would be happy with any of the other 5 guys you mention, possibly Greedy as well. The combine and senior bowl should start seperately so e of these guys.
  5. What's your big board? 2019 Edition.

    Good list. I would definitely pick Q Williams if he was there over Ferrell, but I also feel at this stage he would be a solid option for us at 4. Combine might change that though. Would be really happy with any number of combinations of the late players you listed. I assume you don't mean Brandon Jacobs though!

    I find him one of the most appealing options as he looks like he will have a pretty high floor. Given how poor we were on the edges this year, a solid, dependable presence on one side would be hugely beneficial. The combine, like you say, will be where he makes/loses money. If he does really poorly, that floor might not be as high and you probably don't take the risk. If he does okay and it confirms how he plays in college, then he might become your 'safe bet' if none of the top 3 drop. But if he shows added athleticism, it might make it an easier selection.

    Not in comparison to some of the other players that were there at the time of our pick, but it is more palatable thinking of him as our first rounder than Miller. And I do think that the Hurst pick does somewhat offset the timing of some of the other picks.
  8. What's your big board? 2019 Edition.

    Really interesting. And looking back at how the draft fell, most of us had a player in our top 5 still there when we picked....even after the trade down! Ah well. One good thing is that so many had Hurst fairly high up on their boards so pretty cool that we got him. I like to pretend that we got the same players, but in a different order: 1. Hurst 2. Miller 3. Hall 3. Key 4. Nelson 5. Parker Looks better!

    He does look really intriguing. He's in that group after Bosa, Allen and Q. Williams of about 5 or 6 or so guys who all have qualities that could turn them into top players - but all with question marks. I could see pretty much all of Gary, Ferrell, Greedy, White, Oliver going either way in the pros. It's gonna make for interesting discussion prior to and after the draft as these are the guys that we'll most likely have to choose from.

    How good is Polite? I've heard little bits about him but he seems to be seen as a mid first rounder. What's he missing that pvents him bring seen as a top 10 player?
  11. 2019 NFL Draft Thread

    I go Williams and then go DE later. Not convinced there is a DE worthy of 2, but there looks to be some depth there. Honestly, I would be disappointed if we didn't go DL with 2 of the top 4 picks given the depth up front this year.
  12. Starters you want back in 2019

    You're definitely confusing me with someone else. I hardly post, let alone something controversial!
  13. Good, the bad, the Ugly.... W

    Bad - why is Conley pulled out for large stretches of the game? He has some excellent passages of play and then I look for him and he's not there!?!
  14. The curious case of Amari Cooper

    Has anyone ever totally cleaned house? By that I mean got rid of all players from a previous regime even the young players with some promise?
  15. This is really bad. I feel so dumb having some optimism going into the season. I really will struggle to keep watching this season if this is what they keep churning out.
