  1. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Truthfully, Arizona should be going QW. Don't get me wrong, due to positional value, I can see why anyone (and myself being one of them) prefers Bosa to QW in a vacuum. But Arizona has such a weak IDL it's nuts to me that they're passing up someone like QW.
  2. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Imagine if we get into a situation where we trade back with Oakland, pickup QW and their second pick, then trade up and grab Burns. LESS GOOO

    100% this. If I could have Mel Kipers job, I take it in a heart beat and never complain. Gets paid millions to bloviate. I literally do that for free on here.

    This mock is amazing. Huge win. As for Layne, I haven’t watched him yet, but Jon Ledyard whose been one of the better DB evaluators I’ve listens too HATES Layne. But for a third rounder, I think it’s solid value. Screams Tavarius Moore to me.
  6. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Eh, that would be a stretch imo. Love Ed but Quinnen can do everything Ed can but better and without the size questions. I also think the Jets may trade back regardless of whose there.
  7. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    God, if the hype about Murray is real I hope we can trade back to 4, pick up another first and 3rd from Oakland (or second, think that becomes close point value) and grab Quinnen. I think the Jets might just go Allen regardless. Would honesty be amazing. especially since DK might drop far enough to that second first rounder. And if Quinnen does go ahead of us, trade back again with someone like Jacksonville, NYG or Cincinnati and get another haul of picks.

    Yeah, I'd love to have Clark. Though, i will say that whatever contract he gets (which he will be 100% deserving of) Will be substantially bigger than what we gave Ford and with far more guarantees.
  9. Ah ok. Is the Shadow Draft in the NFL Draft forum? or is someone doing one here? Regardless, I'd want to take part in both.
  10. This started right around the time I was trying to work in the film business so I was barely doing anything draft related. I clearly missed out. So is this in essence a shadow draft? Where we post our picks live as the draft happens?

    I like Winovich as a complimentary guy. Not that we will, but if we drafted him, we could plug him all over the place, but I don’t think he ever fixes a teams pass rush. I think he compares to a slightly better version of Ahmad Brooks and that’s maaaaybe worth a second, and honestly at that point I’d rather gamble on Jachai Polite, Walker or Christian Miller, all of whom have better upside as rushers, imo.

    It makes a lot of sense for us too..that's what makes it scary.
  13. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Buster Rhymes is truly the GOAT Sooner. For what it's worth, I have Brown going to Arizona top of the second. I think he's pretty easily the best Oklahoma receiver to come out in a very long time and probably the best receiver right out of the gate in this class. But never forget Sooner great Juaquin Iglesias
  14. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    We can all accept Kenny Stills is clearly the best of the OU receivers in the NFL.

  16. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Yeah..I wouldn't hate Williams, but I really despise comparing him to Donald. Someone else compared him to Fletcher Cox..if you're asking me who I'd rather have going forward..Fletcher Cox or Joey Bosa..i'd probably go Joey. (same age, same variables etc).
  17. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Yeah, I mean..he shouldn't be relied up on as "the guy" anymore, but I think as a complimentary rusher, It could yield pretty damn good results. Ziggy's reputation seems to be (besides the injuries) is that he doesn't go great against elite tackles, but works over everyone else. We haven't even had a guy like that for a while. But this is also why I want us to grab Bosa, putting all of our eggs into two glass baskets seems like a recipe for disaster.
  18. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    This receiver class is just ridiculously deep. There's probably like 20 guys who could come in right away and play at an above average level. Stanley Morgan Jr is another guy I think we'd be interested in. Also, on QW, not sure if anyone else has brought it up, but if we did sign him, I think it would be indicative of some insider plans. Most notably Ziggy, but there'd still be Nick Perry, Derrick Morgan and Benson Mayowa. Ziggy and Ford with QW and Buck in the middle isn't exactly a slouch group. But man..I really hope we'd trade Arik or Solly.
  19. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Scharping is a fun watch. Watched all of Utah game and looked at his measurables. PFF had him as their number 1 pass blocking tackle and I can see why if he did this on a regular basis. He didn't get beat once...But he seems like he might be a guard at the next level (and could be great there). Given where i'm at in my own mock, he might just end up with SF as just "OL" because his frame measurements as a tackle are god awful. That said, he looks really light on his feet, gets to the second level fast, does a pretty good job mirroring but sometimes false steps and whiffs. But he could probably play every spot on the line if he had some time to learn. But i'm leaning IOL on him. I'd like to see him toss guys when they start to corner the arc on him. He didn't really allow pressure in that game. But in the NFL, if you're not riding guys out of that arc, then they will eventually get there if the QB is gun shy and I wonder if that's because of the lack of arm length, he has the athleticism to make up for it (a la Joe) but having that length helps when exploding out from arms to throw guys away. He lost some hand battles too in that game but he was really great about staying with it. Noticed it a couple times where his arms would get swept but he'd keep his pass kicks going while fighting. Some guys just straight can't do that coming out. edit; as an aside, Bobby Evans has legit fun tape to watch. He straight buries people;.
  20. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Yeah, I've been watching David Edwards, Howard, Daley and Evans right now. Going to watch some Shcharping now. Evans is pretty clearly the best of the guys i've watched today. To the point where I don't see him dropping to us in the fourth.
  21. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    On another note, has anyone watched Tytus Howard? Watched a little bit of Daley and wasn't too impressed, at least not for our scheme. Tytus is intriguing though, he's weak for his size, but he mirros and resets really well. Appears to have LOOOONG arms too. edit: just looking at his spiderweb, not great length, but the Hand size makes sense. From what I watched of him against Aubrun, if he got inside hand position, he might give up ground but he was locking his guy in. Some people have him as a late round prospect..interesting guy to follow.
  22. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    I agree with him on some level but yeah, this is some **** stirring. John Lynch has to not just nail the first pick, he has to nail the first 4 if he wants to quiet people down. Yes, he's done better than Baalke so far and he seems to have cleaned up a lot of the in-office turmoil (him along with Jed), but being better than Baalke is a very low bar. If we take Bosa and he busts and QW ascends, it will be alot easier to justify saying "well, we had Buck, Armstead and Solly, all of which are young and still developing" compared too to the inverse which is "Well, we didn't take Bosa because we had Ford and Damontre Moore." There's a little more deniability based on team needs for passing QW and taking a chance with Bosa. But no, it's not risky on controversial to take QW, they're both universally regarded as the best two players in this draft. It would become a lot easier to get leery of Lynch if they trade back and grab someone like Gary or Metcalf.
  23. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    You know, making mocks is borderline pointless (which is why i'm doing a 7 round mock), but on my first pass, I had Savage going to the Rams at 31. Now I have McCoy to them, but Savage is sooo versatile. He's high risk high reward, but if you can reel him in..good chance he's the best safety in this class. I still prefer Thompson and CGJ but I get all the Savage love.
  24. Around the NFL II - Even NFLier

    Yeah, i'm inclined not to believe it's actually going to happen. But If what he's saying is true about killing negotiations tonight (highly doubtful), then even with all the options Seattle has, their going to be in a really rough spot.
