  1. Official 2020 WR Thread

    Underrated here. Big, strong/physical, great hands and good route runner. Probably won’t come out after this year but could. Could be a nice 3rd-4th round pick for teams that don’t like spending high picks on WR. https://mobile.twitter.com/FOXSports/status/1183116938878345216
  2. Official 2020 Non-Rush LB Thread

    The overall defense for NW played very well but Fisher didn’t really stand out in any way. I remember him making one rally nice play for a TFL but other than that didn’t hear his name much. In his defense the Badgers only ran 60 plays so his opportunities were limited but like I said, didn’t really stand out at all. I think NW defense was also overshadowed by how well the Badger D played.
  3. Mock Draft 2020 2.0 / Second and Third rounds

    Definitely true, I’m just going of historical as I have no clue otherwise.
  4. Scalamania's first 2020 Mock Draft (2 rounds)

    Not great for the Packers, especially if they were to win the SB (which I doubt). Houston doesn’t have a first but gets a first round talent in the back half of the second...Id take it all day.
  5. Mock Draft 2020 2.0 / Second and Third rounds

    I like the WR and OT in the first two but I’d flip it and give the Packers the Oregon OT in the first and the WR out of Texas in the second. Packers haven’t taken a 1st Round WR in about 15 years and have hit on some big ones in the second round (Jordy, Cobb, Adams)

  7. Most underrated draft busts of all time.

  8. The (Potential) 2020 Draft RB Class

    My bad, apparently I did say that, but ultimately that wasn’t my main point. Still waiting on that video you were going to show me of Taylor’s inability to break tackles. Also, let’s see some video of Gordon running with his short strides...that should be interesting for you to dig up.
  9. The (Potential) 2020 Draft RB Class

    Ok I never said he was as physical as Zeke. My whole point was that his game is more like Zekes than Saquons, which was the original conversation before you came in at the tail end of the entire thing. Again your hiding behind your opinion that he is only 210 and will run slower than anyone thinks. And it wasn’t the school saying what he would run at the combine, it was analysts basing it off of his work in track. His senior year he weighed in at 214 and ran a 10.49 100M at the state finals. That translates to a 4.36 40 time. Will he run that fast? Maybe not, but it’s not out of the question. I would consider that elite speed even if he is 215. Am I a homer, sure but I also back up what I say with facts, not opinions. I’d actually appreciate seeing all the times he is touched and goes down at first contact vs how many times he keeps going after initial contact. I’ll be around when you are done getting that video put together. I mean, it’s not like I watch every game or anything.
  10. The (Potential) 2020 Draft RB Class

    You wouldn’t call sub 4.40 elite speed for a running back that is 220 lbs? Gordon is also known for his 0-60 burst which yes, is elite. Dude are you a moron? Gordon is 100% a long strider, watch his splits when he runs. The fact that you say he isn’t a long strider indicates you have zero knowledge of what you are talking about. His long strides is why he struggles to juke people like Barkley. Finally Taylor plays at 220, not 210, proving again you literally have no clue what you are talking about. Taylor hardly ever goes down at first contact, which is why he led all of college football in yards after contact last year but go ahead, keep blurting out nonsense with no basis. Facts>Opinions but I’m sure you will respond talking **** and making claims with no proof to back them up...I can’t wait. LMAO, LOL, HAHA
  11. The (Potential) 2020 Draft RB Class

    Gordon and Taylor don’t really compare. Gordon is a long strider with elite short burst speed while Taylor has much shorter strides with elite top end speed. That’s really what Taylor has that Zeke doesn’t.
  12. The (Potential) 2020 Draft RB Class

    When Zeke runs for over 300 yards in a game then we can talk. See, anyone can use stats to justify their narrative.
  13. The (Potential) 2020 Draft RB Class

    I’d have to disagree that Zeke is stronger and more physical. They are the same size, they both are very physical runners and tough to bring down, I don’t think one is more so than the other. As for “often untouched”, you can say that about a lot of college RBs, but as an example on his most recent 72 yard TD he was untouched but that had more to do with his vision and speed than anything else. Yes a gigantic hole opened up on the back side but most RBs wouldn’t have the vision to see it and have the speed to attack it. Unfortunately these are arguments that can carry on all day every day. I actually never said one was better than the other, just that they are more similar to each other than to Barkley.
  14. The (Potential) 2020 Draft RB Class

    I’m not about to write a novel here so I’ll keep it short: - Taylor has a lot of Elliott in him, big, physical and fast, neither of them are similar to Barkley but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. - Najee Harris is the most overrated/overhyped player in the country. - Bad OL affect the running game just as much. See Todd Gurley, when they had a terrible OL everyone thought he was a bust and were ready to write him off, then they got a good OL and all of a sudden he was the best RB in the NFL.
  15. The (Potential) 2020 Draft RB Class

    A lot of what you are saying about Taylor they said about Melvin too. Melvin didn’t get hurt at all until he got to the NFL. I 100% believe 80% of a RBs success in the NFL is dictated by the situation they are drafted into and Melvin got drafted into a ****ty situation. I know Etienne is fast but I’m not sure he is much faster than Taylor if at all. Taylor is expect to run a sub-4.4 40, I can’t imagine Etienne will run much faster. Did you see Taylor blow by that DB on his 72 yard TD run last Saturday? Taylor’s mix of speed and power is unmatched in this years draft. Add in his pass catching ability and pass pro and I agree he will most likely be the first RB taken. Will he have the best career? If he gets drafted in the top 10 maybe not...
