  1. 2019 CalhounLambeau Draft Thread - New Database

    Thanks for all your efforts. I use this as a baseline for players to review, and I know how much work goes into this. Incredibly appreciated.
  2. 2019 Team Needs

    Patriots WR: Only Edelman is signed past next year Safety: Chung & McCourty are over 30, and they have no real understudies QB: Eventually the succession plan needs to start CB: Rowe probably won't be re-signed LB: Hightower hasn't looked himself this year yet DL: Another pass rusher and another run stuffer would be in order OL: Some uncertainty on the left side (Wynn recovery, Brown will probably chase contract in FA)
  3. GDT - Preseaon Week 1 - Patriots host DC

    I'm always giddy about UDFA players. I can't help myself. Davis in particular -- I kept googling him last year, hoping he would sign once he healed from the disc injury. I knew he had a connection to the coaching staff, and I was very pleased to see him spend the year with the team rehabbing, and then taking snaps on the field last night. He got some solid pressure on a few snaps, although they seem to like rushing him from the interior. I'm following his career closely.
  4. Top 10 NFL rookies that will exceed expectations?

    Just FYI, his name has double Ls. Jullian Taylor. I was a big fan pre draft. Hope he balls out for you guys.
  5. Not sure if he'll declare, but TYREL DODSON has a chance to impress. He's not a 1st round prospect, imo, but he may get there at some point. He has a solid game against Alabama last year, and shows some promise for the future. Number 25 in this video, if you skip to the Texas A&M defensive series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_s0kjYP-Qs

    Me too, please! I just realized it's no longer public. I refer back to it frequently when looking at prospects.
  7. Nick Bosa vs Ed Oliver

    Donald ran a 4.6, too. I get that everyone likes Oliver, and I fully expect him to be a top 3 pick (deservedly so). I'm pretty sure he will be a very good and possibly exceptional player. But to say say that his explosion has never been seen in the NFL just strikes me as hyperbole. Anyway, back on topic of the thread, Bosa has much more refined technique and plays against a higher level of competition. I think he's more scheme-proof. Oliver has a higher ceiling, but I'd take Bosa if I were a GM in the top 5. I don't care if it's an unpopular opinion. Oliver has a longer learning curve. Right now he wins with his quickness and agility -- and I agree it's extremely good, although not unprecedented -- but he needs to learn a lot about hand positioning, leverage, and gap integrity. If it all comes together, then sure, he could be a HoF type player, but I have some minor concerns.
  8. Nick Bosa vs Ed Oliver

    I just don't know if that's quite true. I'm sure Oliver is an extremely impressive athlete, but Donald had one of the all time great Combine performances for a DT. I like Oliver, but I'm not 100% convinced he's going to be great in the NFL. I think he'll be very good, but Donald is just on another level.
  9. Sam Beal - Supplemental Draft

    Pretty good workout. Looks better than Bryant's so far, but admittedly that's at nearly 30 pounds lighter. https://twitter.com/JamalWZZM13/status/1012388412547059713

  12. CW21's 2018 NFL Draft Review (Browns Up)

    I posted this elsewhere about Michel, but it seems relevant here, as well: Although New England tends toward a committee, they've also given plenty of touches to lead backs when they have the personnel for it. Their last 1000 yard rushers: Blount had 299 carries in 2016, Ridley had 290 in 2012, BJGE had 230 in 2010, etc. To be fair, you have to go back to Dillon in 04 for a 345 carry performance, but I don't think it's out of the question that they'll feed Michel after spending a 1st on him. Maroney only had 175 carries his rookie year because Dillon still got 200 carries, but right now the Patriots have White (3rd down back), Gilislee, and Burkhead. I don't see any reason why 200 - 250 carries is out of the question. Also, Lewis got single-digit rushing attempts for the first five weeks of the season (only 19 total for some reason). For the last 11 games, he averaged almost 15 carries a game instead. In total he still had 900 yards on 180 carries. It's not unreasonable at all to suggest that he would have been another 1000+ yard rusher if he had been given more carries over the first 5 games. He still had 32 receptions, too, despite sharing catches with White (56 receptions) and Burkhead (30 receptions). Michel is primed to take the Lewis role, and should see a fairly heavy workload, even though the Patriots will still likely take a RBBC approach.
  13. 2019 NFL Draft - Quarterbacks

    Only a single mention of Stanley in this entire thread, and that was in the middle of a list of other players. His stats were fairly mediocre (low Y/A, 55% completion), but he shows a ton of good traits -- the ability to throw with timing, touch, and anticipation, experience under center, a fairly quick release, nice ball placement, knows where to find his checkdowns, etc. I think he'll have a big year and declare early.
