  2. 2019 NFL Draft - Wide Receivers & Tight Ends

    You can't coach up the ability to catch the ball. Butler's drops are a major red flag. It's not just concentration lapses. He fights the ball worse than anyone I've ever seen. It's worse than Braylon Edwards.
  3. Draft Comparisons

    Charles Omenihu - longer Lawrence Guy Jaylon Ferguson - smaller William Gholston Zach Allen - Derek Wolfe I don't know who Anthony Miller is and haven't gotten to all the edge guys yet.
  4. Draft Comparisons

    I've got to disagree with you and @BleedTheClock about Tillery's physicality. He flashes more angriness and power than Buckner did at Oregon. Buckner's always been more or less a big finesse DE. He's gotten a lot more technically sound as a pro with his anchor and handwork and has had success, but he's never really been nasty. Tillery plays like a DT ..at times rag-dolling guys, anchoring with leverage, and does what you'd expect a NT to do. He's just unbalanced too often and gets high in pursuit. But the physicality is certainly there. I think it's a fair comp between the two but Buckner was a smoother athlete; basically an edge DE that was big enough to play inside. Tillery is more a true interior guy, and plays with more explosiveness but also much less consistent body control than Buckner.
  5. Browns trade for OBJ

  6. #1 pick - who do the Cardinals draft?

    He's not really a one year wonder. As a true freshman at A&M he started at least 3 games and looked like a big time star in 2 of them. Contrary to popular belief, when Manziel actually tried in year 2 he looked like a good young QB with the Browns. His **** for brains got in the way. But, as it's been said already, their games are not similar. "Leader of men" is a valid criticism. Imo he's just a guarded individual. Strikes me as a guy that doesn't really relax until he's around guys he trusts. Just doesn't strike me as a people person. I think what that means is that the coach/player relationship will be even more important with him. Vince Young had some issues but it's interesting to imagine what he would've been like without Fisher. Either way, I don't see the same personality at all between Murray and Young. Murray looks like a guy that just doesn't entirely trust the media and sees it all as extra.
  7. 2019 Draft Prospects

    Agreed. He's more Chris Canty with the ability to be a Trevor Pryce or Shaun Ellis. The thing about his run defense is that he's flashed the ability to come off impressively quick and stout. If he can do it from time to time he can be coached to do it more often, you would think.
  8. Collins was released!

    Barr did suck last year. Especially in coverage. Signing him to play LB would be a wash.
  9. 2019 Draft - Edge Rushers

    I don't think this is an accurate take on his skill set though. He's strong and he plays strong at the point of attack. His short area quickness is good. He's got some speed and he closes fast. This shows on film and he backed it up in testing. He's undersized as a full time DE but does have violent handwork. He's ideal size for a standup rush end but doesn't have the experience in coverage. I think he's a similar prospect to Jabaal Sheard, Clay Matthews, Oliver Vernon, or Brooks Reed. Of course you don't really have an argument. Fair enough though. Pollack, Marsh or Reed are at least better than the special teamer you were calling him a month ago.. If I'm the Patriots or Rams at the bottom of the 1st, he's in the discussion. Motor, violent handwork, and athletic ability are easily bankable things. I'll be really surprised if he makes it out of the 2nd.

    This for sure happens with some of the draft media guys. Jeremiah, Mortenson, Riddick and others.
  11. Draft Stock - Who's up/Who's down

    Not so sure about Williams. Ran slower than expected but was one of the best in on field drills and won the weigh in. If he runs better for teams later his stock will easily bungee back.
  12. 2019 Draft - Edge Rushers

    Gives you a stat point and video clips showing that he can and did hold the edge well in 18', but... it's I that doesn't get it......ok.
  13. 2019 Draft - Edge Rushers

    lol. Winovich can set the edge pretty well. I'd say it's a strength. He's dominant with his hands and plays with technique. You don't lead in run stops by crashing in every time.
  14. #1 pick - who do the Cardinals draft?

    First off..Murray is a legit talent. He's arguably a better prospect than Rosen because it's not just arm talent and poise, it's the special scrambling ability. But if you're the Cards, imo, you either go all in with this HC and direction...or you don't go in at all. There's frankly no better QB out there right now for Kingsbury's scheme than Murray. It's the best opportunity for both men to have success, and after talent, the HC/QB relationship is probably the top indicator for team success. They already have a close relationship. And Murray's familiar with the #1 WR and the starting TE having played with them in college. You don't go half *** and then say..oh Rosen just wasn't a great fit for the scheme...or he wasn't the HC's guy. Kingsbury either feels he can win a championship with Rosen and he's just as good/or better as Murray, or you trade him.
