  1. New Derek Carr thread

    That's Derek Carrier
  2. Trojans 2020 Mock

    It's combine season and I figured I'd make a thread with my mock offseason and then make changes over the course of the combine and FA periods and plan on doing a "I'd have picked ___ here" during the draft. Mostly for my future reference and I don't plan on bumping this thread, just making edits. 2020 Free Agency Corey Littleton, LB Rams Joe Schobert, LB Browns Chris Thompson, RB Redskins Jared Veldheer, OT Packers Darian Thompson, S Cowboys 2020 Raiders picks 1.012 Derrick Brown, DT Auburn 1.019 TRADE to Bears (who move up for QB [Love, Eason, Fromm?]) 2.043 Brandon Aiyuk, WR Arizona State [Trade from Bears] 2.050 Damon Arnette, CB The Ohio State [Trade from Bears] 3.080 Neville Gallimore, NT Oklahoma 3.081 Jordyn Brooks, WLB Texas Tech 3.091 Donovan Peoples-Jones, WR Michigan 4.118 Amik Robertson, CB Louisiana Tech 5.159 DJ Wonnum, DE South Carolina 7.226 Bronson Reichsteiner, FB Kennesaw State QB: Derek Carr, Deshone Kizer, Nathan Peterman RB: Josh Jacobs, Jalen Richard, Chris Thompson FB: Alec Ingold, Bronson Reichsteiner (PS?) WR: Tyrell Williams, Donovan Peoples-Jones (KR/PR), Marcel Ateman (PS?) WR: Brandon Aiyuk (KR/PR), Zay Jones, Keelan Doss (PS?) Slot: Hunter Renfrow TE: Darren Waller, Foster Moreau, Derek Carrier LT: Kolton Miller, Jared Veldheer LG: Richie Incognito, Lester Cotton C: Rodney Hudson, Erik Magnuson, RG: Gabe Jackson, Denzelle Good RT: Trent Brown, Brandon Parker DE: Clelin Ferrell, DJ Wonnum NT: Neville Gallimore, Johnathan Hankins UT: Derrick Brown, Maurice Hurst, PJ Hall DE: Maxx Crosby, Arden Key SLB: Cory Littleton, Nicholas Marrow MLB: Joe Schobert, Marquel Lee, Trevon Coney (PS?) WLB: Vontaze Burfict, Jordyn Brooks CB: Trayvon Mullen, Daryl Worley, Isaiah Johnson CB: Damon Arnette, Keisean Nixon Nickel: Nevin Lawson, Amik Robertson FS: Lamarcus Joyner, Darian Thompson SS: Johnathan Abram, Erik Harris K: Daniel Carlson P: AJ Cole ________ Reasoning: Free Agency. Cory Littleton worked his way into the starting lineup of an oftentimes impressive Rams defense. His talent would be a significant improvement to our defense and his ability in coverage is a plus as well. He is only 26 years old so he is entering his prime with two years starting under his belt. I have him playing SLB in our defense which hopefully improves our match up against TEs where we have historically been weak, but also Mark Andrews and Travis Kelce look to be key features of the AFC teams beat for the near future in the playoffs. Linebacker is built upon further with the addition of Joe Schobert and I believe a slight overpay to each with the excitement and lack of state income tax of Nevada could get it done. Joe Schobert might be a tougher ask as the Browns aren't facing cap concerns and are installing a new defense where off ball coverage mike linebacker is a larger priority for them. Here I'm hoping Schobert can see an opportunity to leave Cleveland and be a hero of the Raiders marking a new era in a new city after so many years with sub-par LB play. Beyond those two major lands, I target Jared Veldheer -- who to be honest I thought was done -- who was claimed by the Packers and played fairly well there. Jared Veldheer began his career with the Raiders under current OL coach Tom Cable, I could see Veldheer being a contributor as Kolton Miller insurance and personally I would trust him spot starting over Brandon Parker unless Parker has made significant strides. Chris Thompson was a pretty good 3rd down back for the other Gruden for years and could be a decent veteran addition to the RB room. Darian Thompson was more I felt like we could use another safety as depth and I remember a bunch of you liking him when it was him Karl Joseph and Keanu Neal coming out. Karl Joseph would obviously be preferable, but this is assumed to be a no cost depth option -- not a starter which Karl Joseph would be. Draft. Derrick Brown leads it off, and it's widely believed he won't be available. I see the primary threats to take him being the Lions, Panthers and Cardinals. How I see him falling to us involves the Lions (trade with Miami?) taking Jeff Okudah, the Panthers reeling from losing Luke Kuechley while still having Kawaan Short and looking at Isiah Simmons, and then the Cardinals potentially grabbing the first WR of the very deep class. If those three things happen the next threat is the Jaguars, who I think are in a pretty prime location to address their offensive line (something like 1. Burrow 2. Young 3. Tua 4. Wills 5. Okudah 6. Herbert 7. Simmons 8. Jeudy 9. Thomas 10. Wirfs 11. Becton). Derrick Brown should be self explanatory, but in-case you skipped him assuming he wouldn't be available this is a very disruptive blue chip tackle and you should watch his final bowl game. Brown also was awarded the 2019 Lott IMPACT (Integrity, Maturity, Performance, Academics, Community and Tenacity) award which paired with the on field prospect he is, should make him a Mayock pick. After Brown, I am mocking a trade down with the Bears for their 2nd round pick and our original 2nd round pick. The Bears could see themselves as contenders should the QB position work for them, either a new QB like Love/Eason/Fromm, or potentially OL help as Kyle Long retired and the line in general disappointed and I have a run happening early on so a projection-y LT like Josh Jones/Austin Jackson or the first IOL pick 19 seems about on par range in past drafts. With the first of the two second round picks I take Brandon Aiyuk, who is raw and measured in as notably smaller than his school listed size. At sub-6 foot and raw routes I could see him falling to the mid-second, on the positive notes though he has taken the difficult road of being a top athlete with a diverse position group (WR/RB/CB) and went to JUCO then Arizona State where he constantly improved. Unlike the last Arizona State early WR NKeal Harry, Aiyuk has separation speed it's just developing and refining the nuances of his game that are in question -- primarily beating press coverage which makes more sense given he isn't 6'2" so technique needs to be developed to start early (if free he has good open field skill and make you miss ability). The second pick from the Bears trade is used on the other Ohio State cornerback Damon Arnette. Arnette has previously had some big questions, namely he reportedly had issues with the defensive coaching staff and considered entering the draft early, but ultimately returned... started... and dramatically improved his game. Arnette is a fiesty corner who is a willing tackler. He doesn't have Okudah's length and may be limited to a strong CB2, but Mullen profiles as the lengthy CB1 type so the fit might be there. In the third I like the look of Neville Gallimore as a nose tackle who isn't really a 2 gapper, but more a 1T between the center and guard gap shooter -- budget Geno Atkins-y without the off the charts strength. I think he would be a great complement to Brown and a scheme fit for Guenther. The next third rounder I have is Jordyn Brooks who has athletic traits to be an impactful player and he racked up tackles all four years, but with his weakness in coverage I think he falls the the mid-3rd as a WLB prospect which just isn't all that valued. Here though WLB is the missing LB piece with Vontaze being a who knows how long that lasts spot on the roster. Third is Donovan People-Jones, who was an elite recruit, but Michigan's offensive support didn't really showcase him and put him in position to develop into what he could be. That said when you piece together when he gets the ball and see some less than ideal throws (usually heavily pressured inaccurate throws) he can make a tough catch and his return skills translate into RAC skills. Amik Robertson is a guy I really liked his boom hits and I never really know if a CB translates well without the top competition, but what he worked against he worked against and made for a fun watch and the effort is very apparent. I could see Robertson being the sort of mid round nickle prospect that the Raiders throw a pick at and see if it pans out. Watching Kinlaw I noticed Wonnum, he isn't the elite prospect, but he looks like a fair reserve option to back up Clelin Ferrell. My main concern right now with him is I kept seeing him play the position I wanted him in, but standing up instead of in a traditional stance so his first step and true explosion isn't something I've seen, but he looks the part of a reserve to me. Finally Bronson Reichsteiner who is from micro-school in Georgia and is from a wrestling family. It's impossible to gauge these nothing school guys because it's complete unknown competition, but just watch this high light film and tell me you wouldn't wanna see this guy try and give Gruden Alstott thoughts competing with Ingold.
  3. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    that literally is by Charlie Campbell lol
  4. BayRaider's 2020 NFL Prospect Rankings

    Ross Blacklock had an achilles injury in 2018 that cause him to miss the year. He came back for 2019 and played well but an entire missed year I wouldn't put in the minimal risk tier. This class is talented enough I think he is a second day prospect still because he has a red flag like the achilles. Only bringing it up because you have him as minimal risk and kinda rated as if there is no concern from how I read it.

    Talking about Danny Amendola, years ago I adopted a dog and I was his third owner. The day I got him was the day Danny Amendola signed with the Rams (which was his third team) and I named him after him. Was really awesome that throughout his life Danny Amendola turned into a pretty good player and champion. I miss that dog he was great.

    edit nvm I figured out what I did wrong
  8. 2020 - TCMD GM Mock Draft Discussion

    The ACL was a couple years ago. It's all good now, but he had an ankle injury this year so I dunno if he still has the athleticism from before so I was looking on a cautious side. It's probably fine.
  9. 2020 - TCMD GM Mock Draft Discussion

    I had a bid on Fant last round for a long time until I talked myself out of it because of the ACL injury. I think this round with the extra decrease that was a good signing. I would have targeted next round.
  10. 2020 - TCMD GM Mock Draft Discussion

    Jacksonville got three depth guys this round. Ibraheim Campbell I liked when he came out, he slots in backing up Ronnie Harrison (Devin McCourty backed up by Jarrod Wilson opposite). Cyrus Jones competes for back end rotation of the CB group and can contribute on ST. Brian Hill was a guy I followed playing daily fantasy in preseason (lol) and I feel like he could be a contributor in the RB group as a bigger body pretty reliable reserve option.

    QB: Matthew Stafford, Gardner Minshew, Josh Dobbs RB: Leonard Fournette, Ryquell Armstead, Jeremy McNichols, Devine Ozigbo, Taj McGowan WR: DJ Chark, Chris Conley WR: Robert Woods, Charone Peake, Michael Walker WR: Dede Westbrook, CJ Board TE: Josh Oliver, James O’Shaughnessy, Charles Jones, Matt Orzech LT: Cam Robinson, Ryan Pope, KC McDermott, Donnell Greene LG: Andrew Norwell C: Frank Ragnow, Tyler Gauthier RG: Brandon Linder RT: Jawaan Taylor, Will Richardson, Blake Hance DE: Calais Campbell, Carl Davis, Chuck Harris NT: Abry Jones, Dontavius Russell DE: Taven Bryan, Timmy Jernigan, Brian Price OLB: Josh Allen, Dawuane Smoot ILB: Donta Hightower, Quincy Williams, Dakota Allen ILB: Myles Jack, Leon Jacobs, Joe Giles-Harris OLB: Jadeveon Clowney CB: AJ Bouye, Artie Burns, Tre Herndon, Jayson Stanley CB: Eli Apple, Parry Nickerson, Brandon Watson Nickle: DJ Hayden FS: Devin McCourty, Jarrod Wilson, Andrew Wingard SS: Ronnie Harrison, Doug Middleton K: Josh Lambo P: Logan Cooke Nick Foles — June 1st Release Geoff Swaim — Release Marqise Lee — Release Jake Ryan - Release Marcell Dareus — Release AJ Cann — Release _____ With a tight fit cap wise I think this is a good looking group. I don't feel like I'm required to really force to reach a position in the draft. Thanks for that post EaglesPete I switched last minute to Timmy Jernigan and I mustve confused him with Tim Settle as a NT. I think he still has a good fit though rotating behind Calais Campbell and Taven Bryan. Bolded is the new stuff. I think the most likely option at pick 9 will be one of the LTs in this class and that would rotate Cam Robinson to back up LT/LG/RG/RT and Linder starting RG and back up center. Without looking like there is a massive hole the CB and DT and a few other blue chip guys look like good fits as well so it should be a fun draft.
  15. 2020 - TCMD GM Mock Draft Discussion

    DE: Calais Campbell NT: Timmy Jernigan DE: Taven Bryan OLB/Edge: Jadeveon Clowney ILB: Donta Hightower ILB: Myles Jack OLB/Edge: Josh Allen CB: AJ Bouye, DJ Hayden CB: Eli Apple, Artie Burns FS: Devin McCourty SS: Ronnie Harrison _________________________ Defensively I think this is a good looking group. Last round we signed Eli Apple and Artie Burns to solidify the number two corner and a reserve. This round we signed Timmy Jernigan to a starting NT role to replace cap casualty Marcel Dareus. Timmy Jernigan who is 27 has flashed and took 2018 off (mostly) to back surgery, but played most of last year. Jernigan slides in next to Campbell and Bryan to create a new 3-4 front. Supplementing the new 3-4 front Myles Jack remains at ILB, but gets pair with Donta Hightower who has been an effective leader of the Patriots for years and is only going to be 30 years old. Although I plan on playing Hightower inside, his ability to rush the passer makes him a valuable versatile piece backing up two premier edge rushers in Clowney and Josh Allen. Finally the Safeties has Ronnie Harrison who is a solid young box safety, and pair him with Devin McCourty who although is pretty old is one of the better free safeties in the game -- and a game changing upgrade on the back end. With the offensive changes of gaining Stafford, Woods, and Ragnow I'm pretty stoked about this team in general.
