  1. JMoore, ESB, MVS. Future outlook.

    I honestly was not surprised at MVS's rookie season at all. He played in two lesser programs, but was wildly productive for either. Sure, he's not that great of a leaper, but he's pristine in his route-running, he has the coveted speed, and he has plus field vision. I wouldn't be surprised if he snatched the WR2 slot from Allison. I also wasn't all too surprised with Moore's output as well. He struggled heavily in preseason and that spilled over into the season. Does he recover? I'd rather be optimistic about that because one could argue that he wasn't utilized properly this past season. He's a guy that works best on the outside winning 1-on-1 match-ups. ESB is smack dab in the middle of either and I feel he too wasn't utilized properly. I think all three improve fairly marginally with MVS needing the least improvement, if any IMHO; but at the end of the day Moore is probably going to really look like a blown experiment if he doesn't rebound this year. I think we'll have a better sense of where each of them stand at this point next year. In the meantime, it's time to find Cobb's replacement. This draft doesn't really help us with that unless we grab Andy Isabella and FA is dry for slot WR's if I'm not mistaken.

    I like the logic you took to this one, however, I think you may have gone a little overkill at EDGE while sompletely ignoring the DL. Pettine's defenses are based on the DL getting pressure typically by using three down linemen. We really don't have consistent DL that can get that pressure sparing Clark and Daniels of course. I'm not sure Wilkerson is that guy either and everyone else along that DL seem to be JAG's for the mostpart. We need to be looking at an impact player at either EDGE or DL. In this specific scenario with your FA signings, which I really like btw, I'd think about going DL over Jonah Williams as much as I hate to say it. I think you could easily get away with going with one of the better DL followed up by Adderley and then someone like Lindstrom in the 2nd. We need an EDGE player or two no doubt, but we need to invest about as much in that DL as well and we've got a deep enough draft class to tackle both positions(no pun intended) and take care of the OL and FS.
  3. I really like this too, but I'd go with the kid out of Okie St(forget his name off hand) on Day 3 to serve as a bubble screen guy.

    Agreed. We can't really evaluate our back end because our front-7 was inconsistent with pressure when it was needed. I think Burns projects as an Elephant OLB actually given some of that tape I saw; especially given his frame. I wouldn't say he has THAT much of a burst, but he's certain got the motor and a ton of power it looked like.

    I'd rather we go Landon Collins. He's a box Safety that can cover a TE down the seam and participates in the run game. We need to look at going Taylor Rapp in the 2nd as well to supplement that position as well. As far as the TE position goes, I'd rather draft someone than grab a retread like ASJ. Remember when Jace Amaro was the big rage because he was big and fast? How's that working out?

    I believe I was talking about Cody Ford. There's no text in the quote so I am not sure what you were quoting from me. I think Ford slides down the boards like just about every other OU OL that's come out in the past few years. Just a hunch.

    I'm lukewarm on Clowney. He's underachieved in his career to be honest with you and has only played one full season. Given how often our players get hurt, especially EDGE guys, it's too much of a gamble going after Clowney. I think we're better off looking to the draft for that stud rusher rather than pursuing Clowney or rehashing the Mack thing for the 50th time. Perhaps there's an OL worth our time in FA? Bobby Hart or Daryl Williams?
  8. That's why it may work. ....Gizzi better really shake things up...

    I'd like to see Frank Caliendo as Mel Kiper Jr. cover the draft...

    You guys are undervaluing Ferrell here just like Ledyard is. The only way he doesn't go top-10 is if three QB's shoot up the board. He's a very solid player who can step in and make an impact almost immediately. Personally, I'd love to see us trade back to 15, grab Wilkins there, and then grab his teammate Austin Bryant in the 3rd. Dude's flying under the radar IMHO. Adderley at 30, and then the best OL at 44.
  11. Moretti's Feb Draft

    You meant to put Ferrell at 12 and Ford at 30 right? Because we'll be lucky to land Ferrell at 12 and Ford is a bit of a reach at 30. I hated the Nick Perry signing last offseason. Should've let him walk.
  12. Backup QB's

    Agreed. The 2020 draft is supposed to be good for QB's apparently. Perhaps we could snag one late day 2 if we have a solid, productive draft this year. Additionally, I'd also say that you can bank on us drafting an OL at 30 or 44 unless we trade down from either of our first two picks. If Washington wants to leapfrog Miami to get to 12 and we get a 3rd from them. Bank on us picking at least two OL before Day 3 then. It'll be billed as preparing to replace Bulaga, but what it really will be is the team pushing Spriggs to keep improving...
  13. I think Ford slides down the boards. That's been the trend with OU linemen. There've been a ton of guys with a 2nd or 3rd round grade that wind up UDFA's. I'd go DL there if possible; even if we bring Wilkerson, Ansah, and trade for Rivers. We still need to shore up that DL IMHO. Love the Holyfield pick. He was underused at UGA and would be an excellent power back for us; a great compliment to Jones and Williams.

    I agree. Makes me wonder how severe the simple battery charge really was or whether or not he just had his invite rescinded simply because it was on his record.

    LOL Years ago, someone on the ESPN forums had a Najeh_Davenpoop handle. Where do we peg Ferguson? 50-75 range?
