  1. Pick is in, #4 Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson

    PFF definitely has blind spots when it comes to its grading. PFF should never be used as a replacement for actual analysis, but it isn't a bad place to start. That said, Ferrell's lack of production was more because he was not playing well than role. He was bumped inside on passing downs to take on guards and he was usually one on one. If anyone is eating blocks on this team it's PJ Hall.
  2. I'm pretty sure David Sharpe got the start earlier this year when Brown was out. He played okay.
  3. Pick is in, #4 Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson

    No denying Ferrell had a very good game on Thursday. That said, I'm still not loving his long term prospect of becoming a great player. He won't be playing against DII 3rd round pick backup tackle every week, but it's good to see when he does have a favorable matchup, he capitalizes. He'll keep my quiet this week.

    Still would. Thanks for being a fan.

    The offense would get on just fine without him. He would just be a cherry on top of an already competent offense. I imagine he wouldn't command more than $12 million on a one year deal.
  6. Pick is in, #4 Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson

    I disagree with your assessment of the play regarding Ferrell and James. James was uninhibited in the slightest by Ferrell. Not that he was supposed to jam James; Ferrell's responsibility was to rush inside of James. The best argument you can make for Ferrell is that he didn't run down the weak play-action (everyone in the stadium knew this was going to be a pass). I also disagree that Ferrell played really well on Sunday. He looked virtually the same he has looked all season. Among the ends, I only think Key played well. I'm not slighting Ferrell; I'm just saying what I see.

    The play was effectively a screen. Ferrell was an unblocked rusher. He did nothing special on that play. There are far better plays to point to being optimistic about Ferrell (although I am not), but this was not one of them.

    My point is that James' release wasn't delayed, it was part of the play as designed. James willfully engaged Ferrell before disengaging into his route. I'd say Erik Harris did more to disrupt James than Ferrell.

    A.J. Green is my #1 free agent add this offseason. I don't think the need at receiver is pressing, but I can imagine Green elevating this offense from good to very good, and very good to great.

    Not really any different than the excuse-making for him in this thread. And the article tried hard to give Ferrell more credit than he deserved in the last play, Ferrell didn't tie up the tight end delaying his release, the tight end was clearly assigned to block and release into his route leaving Ferrell to be an unblocked defender.
  11. Will Jalen Hurts be a first round pick?

    I'm not seeing what you're seeing. To me, he looks like a near complete product of the system. I'm not seeing many pro throws and he can sometimes make layups look laborious. And I'm not sure if its that he's not throwing hard, but his harm looks noticeably weaker than both Baker's and Murray's. He also has a noticeably long release. I also don't like him very much as a runner. I anticipate he'll run between 4.7-4.8, which is fine if I didn't think he was so limited as a passer. He also doesn't look great throwing on the move, which is a bit surprising considering how often he is on the move. His best trait is probably that he's been on winning programs and appears to have a good work ethic. He also generally seems to have good spacial awareness. I want to see Dak Prescott or Deshaun Watson, but he's making me look too hard.
  12. Raiders Defense

    What game did he play safety? I don't remember seeing Worley at safety at all this year. Worley is David Amerson redux. He'll flash a downfield interception here and there, but in-between those plays he's a mess. That said, I'm not sure Isaiah Johnson can do anything but play zone this year. He seemed really raw to play any meaningful snaps in year one.
  13. Will Jalen Hurts be a first round pick?

    Hurts is not Kyler Murray (who's Barrett?). He's clearly a limited passer and even as a runner he's not transcendent. Hurts should go no earlier than the 3rd round and probably not as a quarterback, either. That said, I think his ceiling is the 2nd. I think it's easy to think that a guy putting up big numbers in college is good enough to go high in the draft. But players don't take their stats with them to the NFL; they take their tools.
  14. Dallas Goedert immediately comes to mind. Tyler Higbee is another one.
  15. Week 9 GDT Lions(3-3-1) @ Raiders(3-4)

    That's what great run D looks like fellas. Whether it's 1st and 10 or 3rd and 20, Ferrell settin' that edge. s/
