  1. #1 pick - who do the Cardinals draft?

    Really not much of a debate here if they stay at the top spot. This draft's best players are attacking defensive lineman. Grab the best one you can work with. There are seven rounds to the draft and free agency for a reason. Many different ways to attack the offensive problems they have. Look at how the Chargers, Patriots and Rams have built their offensive line groups. Probably what the Cardinals will have to/try to replicate going into next year. Even if they trade down they don't have to force the OL situation. This IOL group has good depth and some of them could play RT despite the "ideally a guard" label.

    Not surprising. Five-star mega-recruits who stay close to home at a college that coddles them have problems unless their character is exceptional. Very similar to the Leonard Fournette situation from what it sounds like. I had an NFL guy warn me during the draft process that Leonard Fournette was a problem at LSU and that it was hushed. Not sure if Oliver is at that level but he fits the mold I described above. The NFL is going to be an adjustment for him. Not many mega-recruits go to a college like Houston where the big fish HS mentality essentially gets extended.

    Almost all those players fall into these three categories. 1. On an NFL roster 2. Graduated college as a 4JR 3. Had severe academic issues. So I'm assuming most of them are fine.

    No threat of anyone taking his job next season. This draft at DL appears to be much stronger than next year. He has a chance to further distance himself from his off-field issues. (He's got some stuff/rough around the edges)
  6. 2019 NFL Draft Early Declaration Thread

    I came to this thread to see if anyone had declared. Thankfully most of the discussion here is about football, what happens on the field and projecting talent, not judging the decisions of people we don't know.

    Another guy who was criticized for declaring with eligibility. Could have stayed, boosted his stock into the 4th round, 4yr/$1.5M. Instead he signed a UDFA deal 3yr/1M which means if he keeps playing well he'll get his second contract TWO YEARS sooner than if he stayed in school. An example of a positive scenario that can happen/happens a lot.

    If people want to criticize players for declaring early you can do it. If I had control over if it was discussed or not I would allow people to do it. I encourage people to be free to do what they want. But I just really encourage people to also think about what they discuss and why they think they should discuss it. I used to be involved in these kind of discussions all the time, for and against. The more I thought about it the more I realized how pathetic and strange it was that I was even discussing it and pretending I really cared about it. Do I have to have an opinion on everything? Do I have to talk about it just because other people do? Isn't there enough to talk about already? I think back to when I was that age. Only my parents, immediate family and close friends judged my decisions because nobody else knew my entire situation or cared enough to have an opinion, and that's how it should be in an ideal world for the players. At the end of the day I don't think it even matters much. If a player is good and wants to be great he'll find a way, 52 weeks early or late be damned.

    I think football fans can do better than criticizing players for making these decisions. Sure people can discuss anything they want. But a lot of this stuff is deeply personal about people we know close to nothing about. It's a low-end/pathetic discussion in my opinion. Then you have thousands of dopes criticizing these players on top of it. You said you don't have a problem with it if it's personal, why should anyone ever have a problem with it? Players shouldn't have to expose a reason to justify their decision among the public.

    People should do whatever they want and whatever works for them. If that's staying or going.
  11. Trevor Lawrence

    Trevor Lawrence's frame looks great for a true freshman. I suppose people have to look for any wrinkle when you play as well as he does. He's going to be a pocket guy in the NFL and he's going to be a pocket QB with tremendous intelligence, footwork and awareness, he's not going to get hit often unless he falls into a personnel mess with an incompetent play-caller. Pretty much a non-issue. People have to pick at something. He'll look great at the 2021 combine.

  14. 2019 NFL Draft Early Declaration Thread

    Why do people post these long, rambling diatribes whenever a kid declares for the draft. He's not your kid. You don't really care. It's America. Let the guy go after it. At the end of the day regardless of where they get drafted they end up spending most all their money anyway.
