  1. Fun fact, Warrior's father is Dale Carter, who had a cup of coffee in Baltimore on the back end of his career.
  2. How many long snappers can you name off the top of your head?
  3. I get the argument, he has just never felt special to me. I'd imagine they think Akeen Davis-Gaither Jordyn Brooks, or Wallie Gay Jr. can offer comparable value in a later round. My guy says we trade out of the pick, but I could see Mekhi Becton or K'Lavon Chaisson falling to use. In the crazy scenario to monitor list, what if Isaiah Simmons falls and we trade up to say the 10-12 range.
  4. Can somebody sell me on Kenneth Murray other than need?
  5. I'm greedy, there's no reason you can't have both.
  6. Antonio Gibson, he's just an explosive playmaker., I think he's Cordarrelle Patterson 2.0, perhaps with better hands. Will never be a 1000 yard rusher or receiver, but will be the type of guy you always have to account for in space. I'd imagine he could put up Darren Sproles type numbers. Which in our scheme is 2018 Patterson of steroids.
  7. I think we have historically had a different philosophy in the second round as compared to the first, and that that philosophy has been less successful. If we do the same list back to 2002, I come up with Boller, Clayton, Elam, Perriman, and Hurst as busts, With Oher as a fine player, but not living up to expectations (not sure what Grubbs was, as I think he was best in his 5th year and for other teams). (I will leave my long documented Flacco hatred out of this discussion). Boller and Perriman were high-risk picks, whereas Clayton and Hurst were thought to be day 1 contributions with limite
  8. I think there is a category that needs to be created for the purpose of this argument, successful career but not worthy of a second round pick. I’d put Weaver, Chester, and Upshaw in there. Terry, Cody, Jernigan, and Williams were busts. Bowser, perhaps it’s too early to tell, but he hasn’t lived up to expectations.
  9. Names I most like, albeit not in the first are Antonio Gibson and Lynn Bowden. Think they are great scheme fits. Hoping for K'Lavon Chaisson in the first or a mid round flyer on Terrell Lewis,
  10. He feels like the type of guy who falls to round 2, we draft him, say he's such a steal. And to my earlier point, the safe, high floor, high motor, bad athlete doesn't pan out. I think Raekwon Davis is the most obviously Raveny pick though.
  11. A.J. Epenesa for me. I don't think he's athletic enough. A running back would do the trick as well, but I just don't think any other the RBs in the calls are remotely good enough for this to be considered.
  12. I think there are certain things Ozzie valued in a prospect, age, going to Alabama, etc. that limited a player's upside, and we see this more so with today's analytics. Where a player is drafted matters. Had Upshaw been taken in the 4th or 5th we'd view him as the next Jarrett Johnson.
  13. Upshaw is the type of guy you would call a bust if he were drafted anywhere else. He was a very solid role player, but didn't live up to his draft status.
