    MEJ better put some weights in his pockets if he is going to be our starting 3T.
  2. 2018 Draft thread - PICK THE FASTEST GUY AVAILABLE

    Can not remember where I read it but O-linemen that run slower than a 5.4 40 are red flagged by teams. That is why Kirkland and Alexander fell as far as they did. It is very difficult to find a productive player in the NFL that runs that slow. Brown running that slow will most likely push him down a few rounds. He might be there in the 6th for us. I personally would use a third or fourth on him because of his play and three cone drill shows he has enough agility to play on the right side. He is a project and will probably have a bunch of holding penalties. I think if you can motivate him and get him focused on being in better shape we could have a monster at right tackle.

    Now give me Tom Johnson and Vinny Curry and it is draft time. Tremaine Edmunds Rd 1 then a T, CB, and DT in no particular order and I will be happy. I guy can dream.
  4. Raiders Sign CB Rashaan Melvin

    Would have liked to have paid a little more and got a second year out of it (2 yr $16 Million). Not going to complain about a low risk signing below the persons market value. He got paid just over what DJ Hayden got so A+ for me in this crazy FA market.

    I personally do not like the move but do not hate it either. I just want us to not be in the top five for dropped passes again. We need to start looking at other positions of need. Our front office confuses me sometimes. Just saw Poe signed with Carolina 3yr $9 mil per. Wish we could have signed him.

    This was the weakest link on our team last year. Notice what happened as soon as Pagano got control. We have more talent on the field than you think but on the sidelines it was a different story. This team will go as far as the coaches can prepare them. Except the WR unit. Please RM get us a sure handed WR at some point.

    Same point I was trying to make in the FA thread. Looks like a year to sit back and set ourselves up for next off-season. Make a few moves with low level FAs that understand the new systems but nothing huge besides extending Mack. We will not be a Superbowl contender this year but could make the playoffs. That will be great for a team that is transitioning to a brand new system on both sides of the ball.

    It would be funny if Pryor came back to play WR for us. I do not care anymore who is playing WR for us next year as long as they catch the ball when it hits them in the hands. Age, speed, separation, ect... does not matter if you can not catch the ball. Does Carr have a weird release, throws into traffic to much, releases the ball to quickly, ect... because we have been bottom five in dropped passes every year he has been in the league. I do not know whose fault it is but it is a problem.

    Resigning Carrie and Bowman might cost us $13-15 million. That would leave us with $6-8 million after signing our draft picks. I do not see any splash signings.

    The reported contracts are huge. Norwell is not only the highest paid G but the 2nd highest paid o-linemen.

    Looks like the Broncos are going to sign Keenum.

    You have to add some time for running on a much faster surface for the commish. I want to see him run a sub 5.5 on the Lucas Oil Stadium turf.

    If the Bills do not trade up again our chances of a team panicking to get ahead of the Bills and Dolphins increase our chances of trading back not hurt. If they trade up again then it definitly hurts our chances. There is also a good chance that a QB expected to not go in the first will be taken in the first half of the draft. Especially with half the starting QBs making almost $20+ a year in the next couple years.

    Just comparing Carr's contract to other top QB's and expected QB contracts for this off-season and next. Turns out at the start of the 2019 season Carr will not be a top 5 paid QB and possibly not even be a top ten paid QB.

    A Ravens fan was saying he was suppose to play FS but ended up in the slot.
