  1. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Hopefully DJ doesn't pretend he's a genius like Mayock does-- It was frustrating to watch Mayock when he already knew the selection (not yet revealed to the public) and then proceeded to tell everyone on TV "I'd be surprised if they don't draft Player X, he's a perfect fit for Coach Y's system and GM Z loves his work ethic". Then Player X gets selected, a complete shocker.

    ABC is also providing coverage for all 3 Days of the NFL Draft for anyone that doesn't have cable (Have no idea what the quality will be). NFL Network has also streamed alternative coverage in the past on the app/website (at least on Day 3) w/ Bucky Brooks & Co. On Day 3 (especially later in the day) that might be your best option because they actually take the time to address each selection whereas the networks will start to focus on secondary plots tangential to the draft in favor of the selections.

    In terms of our picks? Burns - 12 Ferrell - 30 Winovich- 75 (I'm not a Winovich guy, so there's probably a few others I'd take before him at 75-- AND yes I realize that some team will probably fall in love with the effort and he'll be drafted near the top of the 2nd-- that's no thank you territory for me). Ferguson- 75 (Also not a huge Ferguson guy--- what can I say, I have a type) Banogu- Possibly 75 if the board is destroyed, but I'd be more comfortable at 114. I think Banogu's range is 80-140 in this draft class, but I guess we'll see.

    If we don't go EDGE at least once before the end of Round 3 it'd be hard to classify the draft as success.
  5. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Alright, I'm done. There is zero point in engaging-- if you won't actually read what I type. I believe I've already stated 3 times (at the very least 2 times) that Poyer and Quin both didn't play well in 2018... one because he was injured (Poyer) and one because father time finally claimed his next victim (Quin). I've stated 2017 repeatedly for both players. I've also clarified that Boston has been borderline elite in coverage the last few seasons, and that he has struggled in other facets. The word on Boston is that he likes to run his mouth in the locker room, which fits pretty well with his lack of interest every off-season despite solid play. I guess since we're going to use PFF now. Poyer and Quin definitely weren't on the Top 101 NFL Players of 2017 list (oh wait, they both were). https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/pro-top-101-players-from-the-2017-nfl-season In terms of Boston: At no point have I changed or qualified my argument, so please get out of here with that garbage. I'm done with this conversation, I can't engage people in good faith who don't take the time to even read what I write.

    I didn't think I needed to clarify. Based on play, Quin and Poyer were probably Top 10 safeties out of ALL 64 starters in 2017. Boston has been borderline elite in coverage the last few years. No one is saying there are polished products on Day 3, but you definitely have players with the requisite range to play (and have played in college) single high. This class isn't speed deficient and there are many players with solid instincts available on Day 3. No one is saying these are plug and play starters, but many of them don't lack versatility or range.
  7. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Not sure this really deserves a response, but here goes. Each of those players have been well above average (see: borderline elite) in coverage during their careers. Boston never had any issues whatsoever in coverage (he's been a Top 10 FS in that regard for a very long time), his game was always less stellar in other ways. Quin and Poyer were two of the best safeties in the entire NFL in 2017, and that's not really debatable. Poyer played with an injury last season and it looks like father time finally caught up to Quin after years of excellent play. Feel like this is kind of the Byard argument I had with someone last year. The whole--just because he isn't a household name, doesn't mean he isn't one of the best players at his position. Also, this class definitely has more than 5 prospects that possess the requisite range to play single high. You can't tell me that your list consists of 5 players AND that you've (in fact) looked at the entire draft class. I simply won't believe you.
  8. 2019 Draft Discussion

    The NFL is littered with quality players that weren't drafted high and are among the best safeties in the NFL. Many of them can (and do) play single high at extremely high levels. Off the top of my head--Quin, Boston and Poyer were all drafted on Day 3.
  9. 2019 Draft Discussion

    I'm not super high on Jaquan's NFL prospects. You're always going to be limited when you have legit 4.7 speed at that position. Redwine is a different story, I really like what he could become. Obviously, you'd like more on the frame and he has mental lapses in coverage, but he possesses almost everything you can't teach and I think the rest is correctable given time.
  10. 2019 Draft Discussion

    So you're of the opinion that no safety outside of the top two rounds has the requisite range to play single high? That stands out as a very odd take in one of the most athletic AND instinctive classes in recent memory at safety, but to each his own.
  11. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Okay, what's your list.
  12. Packerraymond's Final Mock Draft

    I could get on board with this. It's well thought out draft, and everyone should be able to appreciate that. The first three picks work for me. I really like Scharping, but I still don't think he'll sneak into the Top 2 Rounds. Layne is probably the first player I'd rather go somewhere else. I don't mind addressing the CB position (and I agree with how you view position as a whole), I'd just probably lean Bunting there over Layne (unless you're of the opinion he won't be available). I'd also be interested to see what our coaches could do with Isaiah Johnson. Overall, the CB class is pretty weak, so beggars can't be choosers. That being said--I wouldn't be surprised if that position isn't addressed until Day 3 based purely on how value and draft slots may align. Nice Round 4. Can't complain too much about the Late Day 3 Guys, but I'm not sure Wilson will amount to anything in the NFL. I don't see anything with Hall that you can't get from an UDFA. Haynes is a nice selection, but I agree that he will probably go higher. Bolton is a super interesting case and could be an ST stud, but he missed a lot of tackles last year. Overall, nice job.
  13. 2019 Draft Discussion

    What draft class are you looking at? There's FS types at every level of the draft this year. Safety is probably the deepest position in the entire class.
  14. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Especially in this draft... It's not like you'll have a Saquon or Zeke available at 30.
  15. I think Parris and Lonnie at those spots is a bit.... optimistic. Overall, though this mock might be some of your better work. Nice job.
