  1. Your team's potential draft gem?

    Well, he WAS your guys' highest pick. I'd be more inclined to go with Khalen Saunders, personally.
  2. Your team's potential draft gem?

    Pretty good choice. I agree.
  3. Your team's potential draft gem?

    What I mean by that is this: Whichever player your team selected in the 2019 draft that will, for whatever potential set of circumstances, wind up at some point during the season being an unexpectedly greater contributor than might have been initially predicted. I'll use my team, the Bills, as an example. Sure, we expect big things from Ed Oliver, our 1st-rounder. Cody Ford, in the 2nd round should be a starter. Devin Singletary in the 3rd was meant to be our future starter, but if McCoy and/or Gore get hurt or falter, he could have a more immediate impact. However, the guy I'm saying is our potential draft gem is Dawson Knox, the 3rd-round TE from Ole Miss. Couple reasons for this: Firstly, our TE corps sucked pretty bad already to BEGIN with, and Now Tyler Kroft breaks his foot, Jason Croom is hurt in OTA's, and Lee Smith is just a blocker. So, that leaves us with Knox, whom we traded up for, BTW, and what; Tommy Sweeney, a 7th-rounder? So, because of, in this case, mainly injury circumstances, the door is wide open for Knox to challenge for an immediate starting gig, and from all accounts, he's looked pretty good so far. Injuries are gonna happen, and sometimes you're the next man up sooner rather than later. Anyways, based on my possibly vague criteria to address the question I have posed, let's hear who you guys think so far might be your team's unexpected rookie significant contributor/draft gem.
  4. Goldfish's Way Too Early Draft Rankings 2019 - Cardinals at 1

    Interesting. I had the Cardinals at #1, as well. Redskins I had at #3. Pretty close, pretty close. Nice job as always, GFW.
  5. My top 3 best and worst drafts.

    Have to agree with this. The Chargers looked like middle-of-the-road to me. Certainly not bad, yet also not spectacular. Bit above average, honestly.
  6. Honestly rate YOUR team's draft.

    Very well-written and thought out. So what would be your overall grade for the entire draft for the Niners? To me, it's somewhere between a C-plus and a B-minus.
  7. Honestly rate YOUR team's draft.

    Agree. The Browns are a tough one to call. The one thing for SURE, though, is that nobody available at #17 would be anywhere NEAR as good as OBJ. Great trade.
  8. Honestly rate YOUR team's draft.

    That seems to be pretty fair. Does kind of come down to Howard.
  9. Honestly rate YOUR team's draft.

    Yes, I know.... -it's almost impossible to NOT be a homer for what your team did in the draft, especially since we haven't seen the performance on the NFL field yet. However, be realistic. Much as humanly possible, in any case. Okay; I'll start this off with my team, the Bills. Oh, and let's do this by letter grade. I'll give our draft haul a solid B-plus. Couldn't have asked for anything better from our first two selections. Oliver was exactly what we needed to replace Kyle Williams, provided great value at his slot, and should be a difference-maker for years to come. Cody Ford was possibly even BETTER value, and should be a 10-12 year effective starter on the O-line. I'm just not entirely sure if he's a tackle in the league, though. I think he'd be a monster right guard, and that's just fine for the 38th pick. Singletary to me was merely okay-ish in the 3rd. I personally would have selected Hakeem Butler. Trading up for Dawson Knox was a gamble on potential, but we had a need at the TE position, so we'll just have to see how it works out. The picks of Joseph and Johnson in the 5th and 6th rounds, respectively, were pretty good depth selections. Even our two 7th-rounders, Johnson and Sweeney, have at least a decent chance to make the practice squad. Looks like an easy top-ten draft to me. K. Let's see how you guys honestly and realistically grade your team's draft.
  10. My top 3 best and worst drafts.

    Actually, the Cardinals can, but they added more like 6 starters than four.
  11. My top 3 best and worst drafts.

    Hey, if I am, I am. My take on things; my right to think so.
  12. My top 3 best and worst drafts.

    Okay. Give it three years, then get back to me.
  13. My top 3 best and worst drafts.

    I appreciate your pity, but it's not needed. Thank you anyways, sub-genius.
  14. My top 3 best and worst drafts.

    Explain why the Cardinals.
  15. My top 3 best and worst drafts.

    Well, at least you agree on 2 out of the 3. Titans having a top-5 draft?? Can't see it.
