  1. Unique League Ideas

    It's a hell of a fun league. I would start one like that on here if there were enough people willing to go that deep. Definitely need to be a hard core NFL & CFB fan to do well in a league like that. Have to know the best college players before they get mass attention, really have to evaluate incoming freshman as well.

    He's a good player, he was really fun to watch live.

    Super deep leagues with creative scoring are the best way to do it. Once you're in a challenging league like this it's hard to do anything else. Best league I'm in is a 12 team, 40 man roster devy league. Minimum 10 players on the taxi squad but you can go over if you like, it just cuts into the number you can have on the active roster when you go over. It's a super flex, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, and 2 standard FLEX lineup. No kickers or defense because they're annoying. It's a PPR with TE's getting 1.5 per catch. RB's get 0.3 points per carry. So basically it puts a premium on having 2+ good QB's, having a handful of good RB's that get lots of carries, having at least 3 starting level WR's, and gives you the option to have 2 TE's because they have premium scoring as well.

    Edwards and Deiter aren't first rounders. They're just easy names to throw in this early because they're solid Wisconsin offensive lineman. Benzschawel probably doesn't end up a 1st rounder either, but he's probably the best of those three.
  5. 2019 Quarterback Class

    Justin Herbert is QB1 Daniel Jones is a close QB2 Deondre Francois could get to that level but he actually needs to earn his starting job back from James Blackmon Shea Patterson is fun but up until now he's basically been a Manziel type which is a 4th round kind of prospect. He could improve but he needs to show it in the new offense. He also actually has to earn a starting spot still. Drew Lock's issues with generating velocity on his throws is a legit issue that will need to improve. The QB1 hype feels lazy. Jarrett Stidham could be a Trubisky type that gets overhyped and picked too early because he's seen as "safe" and "checks all the boxes" but really is just an okay QB that won't change your franchise. Will Grier is old Ryan Finley is a 6th year senior so I'd be shocked if had isn't too old Khalil Tate is fun but he might be used as a glorified RB under Sumlin. Hopefully he gets the chance to show what he can do as a QB, we already know he can run. Jake Bentley, Nate Stanley, KJ Costello, Dwayne Haskins, and Brian Lewerke are interesting guys that could be "risers" that leave early with a good season. Nick Fitzgerald, Clayton Thorson, and Jordan Ta'amu are the seniors that could rise to the top with good seasons Justice Hansen is the small school guy to look out for Easton Stick is the small school guy you've been told to look out for that is really just going to be a career backup Drew Anderson is the "upside guy" that will draw comparisons to Josh Allen even though he probably wont be starting (Tyree Jackson should be the starter for Buffalo and he has real potential).
  6. 2019 Quarterback Class

    You know 😎 He's got the potential to be the best of the bunch. Not fair to add him to that group and add Brian Snead as well. OSU shouldn't have any worries in the run game or be forced to rely on QB runs, the RB's are too talented for that.
  7. 2019 Quarterback Class

    You say that like Josh Allen didn't play with multiple NFL talents at Wyoming.
  8. 2019 Quarterback Class

    Haskins isnt much of a runner. They're better off running with JK Dobbins, Mike Weber, and (eventually/maybe this year) Master Teague.
  9. A Way Too Early 2019 Mock v.2.0.

    lol gotta love it when people complain about where their team is slotted in a mock draft made a year in advance. As if they have any clue where their team will be picking. With that said HOW DARE YOU have the Lions picking #15 overall! They will picking AT LEAST #16 overall! Good job with this though, you've got some good names on here. A few notes I would have: I disagree with Drew Lock in the first, I'm not convinced he has the arm to make enough throws. Justin Herbert should QB1 until someone else proves otherwise (his tape is great). N'Keal Harry at 2 seems a tad high with Oliver and Bosa still available, but I love that you have him as the #1 WR and not AJ Brown. AJ Brown should probably get some legit reps on the boundary before people hype him up too much. I haven't watched the Daniel Jones tape yet but I've heard great things. You should keep an eye out for Deondre Francois, his freshman tape was impressive and if he becomes the leader that Willie Taggert wants him to become he could vault himself into that top 10 range. I LOVE Rashan Gary, but I honestly am nor sure if he should go over Zach Allen and Raekwon Davis. All three are similar players and Gary might be the best athlete, but Zach Allen's tape is just stupid and his ability to bend for a guy his size his equally as stupid. Raekwon Davis might have the most potential of the three because he not only has the great height but he also has ridiculous length and the ability to sink his hips. I love Gary, I see some Cameron Jordan in his game, but I could see a JJ Watt-lite comparison for Zach Allen and a Calais Campbell-lite comparison for Raekwon Davis. I like Dexter Lawrence, but I doubt he goes that high. Vea went 12th this year, he played much stronger, and has more athletic upside as a rusher. Nose Tackles just don't go that high if they aren't absolute freaks, and I doubt Lawrence will test that well. I love Khaleke Hudson, as a Michigan fan I pray he doesn't leave early. He's everything Jabrill Peppers was plus more. I have the Seahawks taking Greg Little in my mock draft as well, I like that pick. I doubt Clayton Thorson goes in the first, he reminds me of Jacoby Brissett. Solid player but not the guy you want as your franchise QB. I don't love David Edwards. I can see the upside, but he doesn't generate movement the way he should at his size and he doesn't finish his blocks as often as I'd like. I think Devin White compares to Tahir Whitehead (but more athletic), so it's funny that you gave him to Oakland who just signed Whitehead. He would certainly fit their type. Bryce Love is great but I could see teams dropping him because he's too smart. They might fear he will retire similarly to how John Urschel retired. I could see Rodney Andersom going before him. If Noah Fant declares he should probably be the top tight end. Albert Okwuegbunam is good but I like Noah Fant more. Other guys who I think could be in the 1st round conversation: QB Shea Patterson, QB Jordan Ta'amu, QB Jarrett Stidham, RB Devin Singletary, WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside, WR Anthony Johnson, WR Ahmmon Richards, WR Deebo Samuel, WR Collin Johnson, TE Caleb Wilson, TE Dawson Knox, OL Beau Benzschawel, OL Daniel Cooney, OL Jawaan Taylor, DL Jerry Tillery, DL Terry Beckner Jr, EDGE Anfernee Jennings, EDGE Carl Granderson, CB Greedy Williams, CB Mark Gilbert, CB Michael Jackson, CB Deandre Baker, and S Chauncey Gardner Jr
  10. Round 3, Pick 82- S Tracy Walker

    No, I'm telling you that NFL teams and a small group of people in the media liked him that much. It has nothing to do with the Patriots "leaking info" to the media to get them to change their mind in the hope that other teams will change their board because Mel Kiper and Daniel Jeremiah talked favorably about a few highlights. Teams don't care what the draft media guys says. They develop their boards, they won't change it because those fools suddenly had a change of heart after "reviewing the tape". Put away the tinfoil hat. The majority of the media that covers the draft are absolutely clueless when it comes to offensive line. When they get tipped by a scout that they're too low on a guy, they often listen. Some of the guys that actually know a thing or two actually really liked Frank Ragnow. Jon Ledyard and Brandon Thorn were especially big fans of Ragnow.
  11. Round 4, Pick 114: Da'Shawn Hand DE

    Judging his sack numbers isn't really fair because his job at Alabama was to play the run as a 295lb end. He will still play that role sometimes here but he'll get the chance to rush from the interior which is something he almost never got to do at Alabama.
  12. Round 3, Pick 82- S Tracy Walker

    This is 100% right. "Late risers" aren't really a thing. Teams were always high on him, Bob Quinn even mentioned that they wanted to keep their interest in him quiet after having a quick, informal meeting with him at the combine. The media just catches onto those opinions late and they bump them up their rankings to look smarter
  13. Round 3, Pick 82- S Tracy Walker

    I liked both. I like Wynn as a left tackle and left guard. I like Ragnow as a center and right guard. They were similar players in my mind, Wynn is probably a little safer, Ragnow has more upside and can be a better player if he can improve his hip mobility
  14. Round 3, Pick 82- S Tracy Walker

    lol Bengals and Patriots reporters both said that their teams wanted Ragnow. "You know nothing" feels like some pretty strong projection on your part
  15. Round 3, Pick 82- S Tracy Walker

    Relax. Adam Schefter reported it, he doesn't report anything if it isn't true. It isn't "bs", it's real. Nobody is saying that or using that to justify the pick, it's simply to provide context as to why the Lions wanted to draft him they did. He was a reach compared to how the media viewed him but he was not a reach based on how the NFL viewed him. They didn't draft him because someone else liked him, they drafted him because they liked him. That's important to understand (and not hard to understand). They actually tried to trade up to get Tracy Walker, he was higher on their board than where they selected him and they thought he was going to be drafted in front of them. Also, they didn't trade down because the Bengals would have taken Ragnow, not the Patriots. The Patriots had Ragnow ranked above Wynn, but the Bengals would have drafted him before they had the chance. If they had traded down they would have likely ended up with Billy Price and would have been able to save the 3rd they traded to get Da'Shawn Hand. So really you're getting mad about losing a 3rd next year and the difference between Frank Ragnow and Billy Price.
