  1. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    With the Apple deal falling through, I think there's a pretty good chance the Raiders go with Henderson over a receiver at 12, take the best receiver available at 19 (if they don't trade back), and maybe double-dip at receiver again in the 3rd. I'd call it about a 60/40 chance Raiders go with a receiver or Henderson at 12 if he's there.
  2. Michael Pittman vs Chase Claypool

    I would easily take Pittman over Claypool at receiver. However, if I'm thinking about a guy to put inside on those Rams-style bunch formations, Claypool might be a better fit as a blocker/get the ball in his hands on schemed plays and mismatches guy. Claypool reminds me of Darren Waller.
  3. Seahawks sign DE Benson Mayowa

    He is one of the better situational pass rushers in the NFL. If you cut up all his sacks, you would probably think he was a mega-star. I always figured he would put up big-time sack numbers if he's ever given a true opportunity to start like Shaq Barrett. Also, this is his second stint on Seattle and his second stint as a Raider.

    I don't think Henderson's tackling is that bad. My biggest issue with him is that he lacks the physicality and competitiveness that I like from the position. It's less that he's a bad tackler and more than he doesn't put himself in the position to make a play as a tackler in the same way AJ Terrell or Kristian Fulton do. And in today's NFL--where there is a proliferation of teams running jet sweeps and outside zone--corners who are disruptive at the line are very important. I would want Terrell or Henderson at 19, in that order. The way Miller's mock falls, I would take like 15-20 players over McKinney.

    I would not be happy with this outcome. Corner is a much bigger need than safety, and I'm not confident McKinney would definitely start ahead of Harris or Heath. Also, Burgess is not a corner. I really want to come out with a receiver and corner with the first two picks.

    I would not mind taking Ruggs at 12, but he's not Hill. Ruggs doesn't have the lightning acceleration that Hill does. Ruggs, to me, will be more similar to Brandin Cooks. Speaking of receivers, has anyone else watched Bryan Edwards? I like him better than some of the other 6'+ receivers in this draft, including Michael Pittman and Tee Higgins. He's extremely quick for his size. He reminds me a bit of Corey Davis and Quincy Enunwa, though I think his ceiling is Allen Robinson.

    As worried Henderson's physicality and competitiveness makes me, I still like him much better than Conley--who wasn't physical in both coverage and as a tackler. Henderson seems to be appropriately physical in coverage, and he did the best job against Burrow and Chase as anyone could have. I wouldn't completely hate him at 12. To put it this way, I like Henderson much more at 12 than Ferrell at 4.
  8. Packers to sign WR Devin Funchess

    I remember comping him to Jermichael Finley when he was coming out.
  9. Panthers sign WR Robby Anderson (2 years, $20 million)

    This happens all the time though.
  10. Raiders sign QB Marcus Mariota (2 years, $17.6 M)

    Carr has two mistakes in the GB game and otherwise played well. Carr played well in the Houston game. Mariota would have stayed on the bench.
  11. Raiders sign QB Marcus Mariota (2 years, $17.6 M)

    What about his inability to throw accurately?
  12. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Since we're all doing it: #12: Lamb, Ruggs, Jeudy, in that order. #34: I expect Henderson and Terrell to be gone. My preference would be: Fulton, Diggs, Gladney, Johnson, Hall. #44: BPA. My preference would be for a receiver. Shenault, Mims, Pittman Jr., Aiyuk, Hamler, Reagor, Higgins. FWIW I expect CJ Henderson to go before 19. I also expect Terrell to go before round 2. Those are my top corners (in reverse order) after Okudah.
  13. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    I might be inclined to give up 19 for the Colts' two seconds. I think if Henderson and Terrell are gone, I look to move back.
  14. Rams new logo unveiled

    I really don’t understand the dislike for this logo. Even if you don’t like it, it seems much too tame to have such a strong opinion on it.
