  1. With the uncertainty surrounding whether or not football will start on time next year, if at all, will some of these kids who bypassed the draft this year try and get in to the supplemental draft? They run the risk of leaving a lot of money on the table, but I wonder if we see some of the players who might have been viewed more as 2nd to 4th round picks maybe considering it.
  2. I love Jeremy Chinn and actually want my team to grab him but I think this is recency bias. He’s the shiny new object that hasn’t been under the microscope like Delpit because he hasn’t played at the highest level of college football. Even with his tackling issues, Delpit has shown me more at this point.
  3. Is Tyron Smith even available? Why would Jones trade his starting left tackle when he wants to win NOW? They just lost Travis Frederick to retirement and now they want to trade their stud left tackle? I'm confused. Also, your speculation assumes that all of these so called 1st round talents are still available when they are on the clock.
  4. Some could use high picks on more than one, or at least could stand to.
  5. I completely understand agents telling their guys to sit out the testing part. As a competitor, I like seeing guys going out there and facing down the competition but I'm not going to knock those guys for wanting to protect their stock. What I do hate about all these players sitting and not doing the drills though is the missed opportunity for the list of players not invited to the combine. There should be a sub list for the players who back out of doing the drills.
  6. Carolina doesn't have the draft capital to outbid Miami.
  7. Is the assumption here that Miami doesn't view Tua as that much better than Herbert then? If they're going to trade up, why wouldn't they trade up for the #1B quarterback in the draft? They have the assets to outbid anything the Panthers could throw at the Lions.
  8. Using the Jets/Colts trade as a baseline, which was the 6th overall pick along with the 37th, 49th and a future 2nd round pick, I think the 5th, 26th, and 70th with a possibility for future draft considerations is a pretty equivalent deal.
  9. I like your draft overall but your player comps for some of those players I don't understand. i.e. you compare Andrew Thomas to Greg Robinson, Jedrick Wills to La'El Collins and Mekhi Beckton to Jonathan Ogden yet have him sandwiched between the two. Ogden was a multi time All-Pro. Also, if you think so low of Thomas and even more so Josh Jones, I'm not sure why you have them in your mock. Also, that seems low for Derrick Brown, who is at minimum a top 10 player in this class and in my opinion the number one DT in this class.
  10. Completely agree. Mostly I thought you were saying that he couldn't play safety rather than he shouldn't play safety.
  11. You keep saying that he can't but I'm curious as to why. I agree that his best position would be SLB but considering that you've posted about 10 things on here putting the guy down, i'm wondering what you're seeing to say these things so assuredly. The Julian Peterson comparison is a good one that I wish I would have thought of @Humble_Beast
  12. You were hoping for the perfect player at the end of the first round? Missed tackles I’ve seen but definitely not the lack of effort. I’ve seen him play with a ton of energy and emotion in a good way, though it does tend to have him over playing or trying to lay the knockout hit.
  13. I went Blacklock, Queen, McKinney McKinney is BPA to me but safety isn’t the biggest need. Blacklock was first for me because the Packers need to stop the run. It was overly apparent against San Fran but they had trouble all year in that category. Queen because he’s the new age linebacker that every team covets with the ability to tackle and cover really well at the position.
  14. If Yannick is still upset about last year's handling of contract negotiations and it feels like he wants to move on, is there any chance the team would choose to franchise him and try to trade him? Teams like the Bills and Ravens might be willing to offer high end draft picks as compensation. I know that ideally you try everything to keep a 24 year old premier pass rusher but in a worst case scenario, acquiring high end draft capital in a trade for him wouldn't be a bad consolation.
  15. Can't argue against that logic, but I just don't see him being a worse prospect than Montez. Again, some coach out there will convince the upper brass that they can coach that aspect up when you do have the tools that Herbert has.
  16. I believe all of them would have to appeal to the Packers as big bodied interior defenders that can move. I'd also add Marlon Davidson to this list. I do hope that Gallimore and Madabuike go to a team as a 4-3 under but there's nothing to say that they wouldn't be good fits as 5-techs in an odd front. Blacklock's game actually reminds me of Kenny Clark. Raekwon Davis is a good run defender, which the Packers obviously need, and his length would be an asset at the 5-tech position as well.
  17. This is baffling. Practice is just that: practice. But by all accounts, Love and Herbert were head and shoulders above all the other QB prospects at the Senior Bowl and consistently demonstrated first round QB traits throughout the week. Neither is a sure-fire prospect, but Daniel Jones came in to the Senior Bowl last year with a lot of the same questions and showed off the same traits and solidified an early first round grade (on the way to becoming a top 10 selection obviously). It's disappointing that Herbert looked the same as a passer his senior year as he did his junior season; I'll give you that. But he also didn't do anything that should drop him below Steven Montez as a prospect. I don't have Herbert and Love in my top 15 overall prospects fwiw. We all know though that the reality is, if a team needs a quarterback, they will over reach at the position and I would not be at all surprised if 4 QB's come off the board within the first 15 picks. Add a 5th in Eason as a first round candidate if he does well at the combine with accuracy and propels himself up the board.
  18. Someone’s gotta draft them. Edit: Someone’s GOING to draft them.
  19. For me, the obvious negative is that you don't have the team addressing the offensive line more, especially at the tackle position. While there are no "can't miss" prospects for me, there are a lot of players worth looking in to in the top two rounds. Andrew Thomas, Jedrick Wills Jr, Tristan Wirfs, Austin Jackson, Alex Leatherwood, Josh Jones, Walker Little, Trey Adams etc. all have potential in the first two rounds. Even Trey Smith, who was a top tackle prospect before his health scares, could move back out to the edge or be a plug and play interior lineman and help beef up the line. Offensive tackle more times than not is one of the tougher positions to come in and play right away so I think it'd be best to get one or two of them on the field this coming year to learn and be ready to contribute to a winner sooner rather than later. And while Conklin does address one of the tackle positions, he really hasn't been good or healthy since his rookie year.
  20. With Tua being injured, what's the possibility of the Dolphins skipping on a first round QB this year? His injury history was already concerning so I wouldn't be surprised to see him fall after a significant one as this. Even if he makes a full recovery, can the Dolphins take that chance when they have so many other questions? I'm not sold on Herbert either and the way the board falls and the draft order stacks up, Andrew Thomas seems like the best play for them in the top 5, assuming that's where they finish and don't have a chance at Chase Young or Joe Burrow. Would anyone consider it a win if the draft went this way (3 rounds): 1.1 - OT Andrew Thomas 1.2 - Yetur Gross Matos 1.3 - C Creed Humphrey 2.1 - OT Jedrick Wills Jr 2.2 - QB Jake Fromm 3.1 - CB Jaylon Johnson 3.2 - RB Cam Akers Note: Tua and Herbert are gone by the time Miami picks again in this scenario.
  21. I still think they should look to upgrade the edge in the draft, without forcing a selection though. The Smith’s are nice, but one is inconsistent and one came through in a contract year. A rookie to bring in situationally like Brian Burns would be great who could eventually take over should either bust. Or someone along the line who can rush the passer and step in should Daniels or Clark get injured again. The only position I hope they don’t address in round 1 is receiver. It’s a pretty deep class and I hope they look to set up the defense with more talent and depth.
  22. Interested to hear why you have Gary going before J. Allen for the Jets. Gary is tantalizing from an athletic standpoint but he didn't have nearly the production that Allen did, who is also in the upper echelon of athletes in this draft. Allen also seems to fit the Jets team needs better.
  23. The idea of a second year 1st round quarterback who played in a porous offense being dealt a year after for a third a fourth feels like selling short an a valuable commodity. If the Cardinals don't think that Rosen is the right guy for Kingsburry's offense, then I get trying to move him but he's far more valuable than that. He is on a cheap contract for the next 3 years with another year that can be tacked on if the team chooses to do so and possesses a lot of potential. Jared Goff took off in his second year following a tumultuous first season. There are other examples of progression of quarterbacks from year one to year two, but he was just the latest and probably very relevant considering all the damage to his outlook that first year did. I would be very surprised to see him go for the price you've proposed and if that was the asking price, I expect a lot of other teams with aging quarterbacks to be in on the bidding. Besides, the Giants don't have a third round pick this year.
