  1. Big news for the CFB. Football's Future has landed the biggest recruit. We're adding @MikeT14 to the mod team, and he'll be co-modding the CFB forum with @naptownskinsfan. Let's haze him like the rookie he is.

    Yeah. The pay for guards has gone up exponentially the last few years. There's a bigger premium on interior pressure. You can always scheme away from the outside pass rushers.
  3. Pettine's Back Mock

    Agree that Queen likely won't be available that late, but R2 seems to be a fair assessment to where he will get selected. He's really only got one year of production at LSU, and he's on the lighter side for LB (listed at 227). He's not going to fit into everyone's schemes.

    This. And given that MVS and ESB are still on rookie contracts, they're not getting released prior to cutdowns.

    Elite OG money is $13M. If you're a top 10 OG, you're getting $10M+ easily. Elite RT is getting $15M+. Top 10 RT money is $7M+. There's better money to be had at OG than RT.

    Nope. He's your starting LG for the next decade.
  7. The STL Cardinals Thread - NL Central Champs!

    Yes and no. I don't think the Rockies are interested in coming down off their asking price. I'd imagine they'd want at least two of Gorman, Liberatore, and Knizner along with MLB-ready SP (i.e. Dakota Hudson). And the Cardinals aren't willing to give up that much. And they'd want some salary relief from Colorado. I think opportunistic is the best way to describe this situation.
  8. The STL Cardinals Thread - NL Central Champs!

    Ozuna isn't a difference maker by any means. I get wanting him back on a 1 year deal, but does Ozuna really make that big of a difference for the Cardinals? I don't think so.
  9. The STL Cardinals Thread - NL Central Champs!

    We offered the QO. He turned it down. This isn't a situation where they pulled back their QO. I'd imagine the Cardinals had a fairly similar offer on the table. This is more about Ozuna wanting a bite at FA without having the QO attached to him. At that point, the highest bidder won. Up until now, the only teams who were really linked to Ozuna were the Cardinals and the Rangers. And somehow the Braves ended up signing him outright. That means that either the Cardinals offer wasn't very good (i.e. several million less than what the Braves offered) OR there's another factor. My guess is the latter. I think Ozuna felt he deserved a longterm extension, and the Cardinals weren't interested in overpaying what the market dictated he was due. Last year, Ozuna was 34th in wRC+ amongst OFers. That's not great. He's been a roughly ~110 wRC+ for the last four years with the exception of 2017, which was clearly an anomaly.

    This. Very much this. Lowry, Goodson, and Lancaster played 123 snaps COMBINED. That's an average of 41 snaps per player. Lancaster averaged 24 snaps per game, Goodson averaged 16 snaps per game, and Lowry averaged 39.9 snaps per game. Lowry was the only one playing close to his season averages.
  11. 1[12]: Rashan Gary [EDGE; Michigan]

    There's not a snowball's chance in hell you can come up with an argument that the Packers should have played Rashan Gary over Za'Darius Smith or Preston Smith. I don't like them playing 84% of the snaps. Preston Smith actually only finished 2 snaps behind Za'Darius Smith. In terms of pecking order, Kyler Fackrell was always going to be ahead of Rashan Gary on the depth chart.
  12. 2020 NFL Draft Discussion

    I'm not sure how they compare to other teams, but I do believe they take it into context. For example, during HHCD's final year at Alabama he was playing closer to the LOS, which was clearly not his game. But his sophomore year he was playing more single-high S, and that was where his tape shined.
  13. 2020 NFL Draft Discussion

    That wasn't what I was arguing. The notion I was arguing was that we were bad at drafting WR and TE, and I argued our lack of success was more because of what we invested (or lack thereof) into the position. You invest minimal into a position, don't be surprised when you get minimal return on that investment.
  14. Not even sure Becton makes it to 30, let alone 47 or wherever we traded down to.
  15. 2020 NFL Draft Discussion

    In the last four years, the Packers have drafted SIX WRs in the draft, but only one of them prior to the 5th round. The success rate of picking a WR that late is usually below 15%, so if you count ESB or MVS as a "hit" then you're on par with success. We haven't seriously invested in WRs in years, we're essentially throwing schit at the wall and hoping it sticks. And for the most part, it hasn't hit. But that's what happens when you're playing the number games. You're hoping something sticks. So no, it's not an indictment on the FO on evaluating the WRs. You're taking extreme odds that you're going to have success, and pinning it to that. The Packers did the same thing at RB when they took Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams, and Devante Mays in the same draft. We got a starter (Aaron Jones) and a quality backup (Jamaal Williams). Likewise, we've drafted ONE TE in the first five rounds since 2014. One in the last five drafts. That's minimal investment. We've invested the same into the punter position in terms of number of picks. Let that sink in.
