  1. 2020 Draft Thread

    Well, it ain't Baun but I still love it!

    Epenesa gone, Baun still left on my wishlist.

    He doesn't only win with strength. I get that his Combine numbers are poor, but he's athletic and good enough in his technique to win in a variety of ways. Who cares if he's not your typical 3-4 standing outside linebacker type, he's still a solid pass rusher and a good all around player. That's my point.

    That's crazy. He embarrassed Austin Jackson who just went top 20 in their bowl game. It's crazy to think he won't be a good player just because he had a poor Combine.

    Epenesa or Baun would be dream scenarios for me.
  6. 2020 1st Round Pick- Isaiah Wilson OT- Georgia

    So then why not have a little bit if faith he knows what he's doing, since his track record would suggest he is good at finding value in low or non-1st round picks? I personally don't know who the kid is at all. He looks like a mauler in the running game, which is something that would fit us. He may not necessarily be who I wanted, mainly because I had no idea who he was, but I can live with it for now. I definitely don't think paying Kelly was enough to keep us from drafting a better prospect at RT if they saw one. And I definitely don't think this is a losing strategy at all. It's teams that go all in because they feel like their window is closing that usually don't work out, while smart teams are trying to maintain their state of the roster planning ahead. It's what keeps the good teams at the top.

    Or would've turned awful in a couple of years when he fully develops and makes everyone feel sorry about passing on him. I personally like the fit for him in Green Bay.

    I have no idea who the kid is, but makes sense from a position standpoint. Hope it works out. Absolutely clueless about what's going on behind Vrabel, but that looked weird as hell.

    Didn't he have like 20+ sacks these past two years? I also remember him pretty much dominating that T from USC that wrnt to Miami, Austin Jackson, I think. I'd personally absolutely love to get him.

    I know I haven't caught up enough with the pre-Draft buzz, but Epenesa is looking to fall out of the 1st and nobody seems to care. What am I missing?

    Love is going to be great and I love the fit! As for our pick, I have no clue who I want. I haven't paid enough attention to the recent news and honsetly have no idea why Epenesa is still on the board, but that could look like good value.

    Yeah, that simply is not an accurate statement (the irony!). He was always a threat running the football. He was in college, same as his first year in the league. His accuracy numbers are up because he has improved, nothing else. He was always talented enough to develop into a great pocket passer, and second year in the league he did. There's no telling if he can also continue to improve his game even more. Just because he is such a great runner does not take anything from him being also a great pocket passer.

    I'm sorry, but as much as it hurts to admit, there is no way that Lamar Jackson isn't an accurate NFL thrower. Yes, he's an incredibly gifted runner, but he has developed into a just as good of a pocket passer. He can throw with rhythm, to all levels of the field and into tight windows. Time will tell on Love. I still think he is well worth a 1st round pick.

    No offense, but if completion rate does not equal accuracy, I still trust it to be closer to the truth than your unprofessional eye evaluation, especially when my own unprofessional eye evaluation tends to agree more with the numbers than with yours. Again, even if his accuracy rate doesn't improve in the NFL but stays at the current level, he'll be good as a ~60+% thrower. Jackson obviously took a big step forward in his second year. It's what players are usually expected to do, improve, and he did it brilliantly. He came into the league a little raw, expected to sit behind Flacco and only saw the field mostly as a runner to start the year, on limited snaps. He took over as the starter, and in his first full year improved considerably from previous year and college, up to 66%. That's a very respectable number. It certainly places him well above the "one of the most inaccurate passers" line.

    Here's the tape, if you care to review it with me. He threw 3 INTs, FWIW, not 4. I counted 3 more interceptable passes. One clear dropped INT, two that could've been intercepted. Both were desperation throws on the final drive of the game with 1 minute to go and down 3, in one of which he's hit from behind as he releases towards the opposite side of the field. He ended up 33/48 (68.8% rate) for 400+ yards & 3 TDs and 35 points scored. With 5 passes dropped (didn't count them, but I'll trust you on this, even though it felt like more), that's virtually 38/48, which is above a very respectable completion rate. On what TD was he bailed out? The first one, he steps up into the pocket to avoid pressure and delivers a beautiful pass down the field into tight coverage. The second one, he throws towards the back of the EZ from the far hash, and places the ball only where his WR could get it. The third one is a WR screen taken to the house for 50+ yards. If you're referring to that one, that's the WR doing his job (catching and running after the catch) as well as his blockers. That's not a case of a QB being bailed out. The 3 INTs are bad, and he should've had at least one more (the clear dropped one). 3 of those are examples of failing to recognize the coverage, and the other one he failed to place that ball towards the deep corner of the EZ as he should've. But aside from that, there's a lot of really solid play that you'd frankly have to be crazy to ignore. His entire (or at least the majority of) 2019 tape is basically that. There are red flags around him no doubt, but to dismiss all of the potential that he offers is simply insane, and I 100% guarantee at least one NFL team will be smart enough to consider him a very worthy project and draft him in the 1st. Me, personally, I would be very glad if it's anyone else other than the Colts. I think there's a great chance of him turning into a very capable starter in the league, and I'd like it more if it were outside the division.
