  1. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Listened to Sirius XM yesterday afternoon. Pat Kirwan was talking about DL. Namely Wilkens/Oliver. He likes Wilkens as much, if not more, than Oliver. More scheme diverse. Kirwan really sung the praises for Wilkens, citing his excellent character and how he would be a great locker room leader after a year or two. He said he wouldn't be surprised if Wilkens went top 10. Also said that the DL class is pretty good at the top, but gets thin fast. So if you want one, take him early because there isn't much there in later rounds. Just found that interesting, coming from a guy who really, really knows his stuff.

    Love the safety talk. I'll add this. Agree that Adderly looks faster than CGJ. But I'd say that in a straight line, he's faster. I thought that CGJ was quicker to recognize things and much quicker to react. He just moved at a different speed than anyone else on the field when the ball was in the air. That's why I like him just a bit more than Adderly. And Hooker seems to have those instincts, too. He's just not the athlete that the other two are. Rapp. When I watched him, I thought I'd see him in the box all the time. And while he makes his splash plays there, he played a pretty darned good centerfield safety. I don't get his Pro-Day at all. He didn't look like a 4.7 kid out there. I know darned little about Savage besides seeing his testing results. Same for Thornhill. Thornhill, though, intrigues me because he played corner and he has some nice size. He's gotta be a "plus" if he needs to man cover a TE or a slot. Unsure about him in centerfield. But as I said, I can get sold on him.

    I target three safeties. I'd burn one of those extra 4's if it meant moving up in any round for CJG, Adderly or even Hooker. Once those guys are off the board, then the list of guys that I've watched really goes down. I haven't seen enough of Savage to really know what I'm talking about concerning him. Of the three up there? CJG plays at a very fast speed, like he recognizes things faster and reacts quicker. Adderly, I think, has more natural ability in him. And Hooker has a nice all around game, but he's a clear tier below the other two...but very safe in my eyes. Marvell Tell is a guy that I'm interested in later. I have no idea where Rapp should or will go. I liked his tape, he played deep a lot. But he really pops near the LOS, which I think is where Amos is better. So I do like CJG-Adderly-Hooker better.

    Just a "okay" from me. Like I get it, but don't love it. I despise the first pick as a TE. Rather go Devin Bush as he's gonna pop on tape. If you want a TE that can be a "plus" blocker, while still catching the ball some, you can grab that later. And I think you did. And if not Bush, grab me Wilkens. I"m okay with a WR at #30. Just okay. Really hoping for a TE (Fant) or OL (Risner). I'm a fan of Webber. Think that is nice value there. Good back. Thornhill may check the boxes, but I didn't especially like the little bit of tape I saw on him. I sit the fence on him. I didn't watch any Winovich. I absolutely love Jenkins. Great pick. But...given what went before #12, that is a disaster board. Trading down is the right thing to do. I'd like Wilkens or Bush there. Save TE for later.
  5. 2019 Draft Discussion

    I have to jump in here. It is my chance to say this, again. Allison isn't very good. If he is your #4, you are pretty good. If he is your second or third, WR, you are in trouble. You have to find someone better than him to compliment Adams in the WR corp. He will get a few nice plays, every now and then, because teams simply do not and will not respect him. I've said it for a couple of years now, most vocal about it last year. And every year I've said it, he's made me eat my words. I have no doubt that he will do it again. So there it is, I feel like Allison isn't very good and only makes plays because other teams simply will not respect him on the field. Now go get it done, GMO.

    I'd burn a second for Adderly...or CGJ. I'd happily burn our third for Savage, Hooker or Rapp. I"m a "no" on Thornhill, Abram and Thompson. Though I can probably be talked into Thornhill.
  7. Green Bay Big Board #15 Overall

    Boy. DLs with medicals. Safeties. Good TE. Too much value in Simmons to not do it here, despite his injury and past.
  8. I want 2 edge rushers in this draft

    I think the bolded part is wishful thinking. 10.5 sacks last year. He's gonna get plenty of snaps and opportunity this year. If he can manage even 5 sacks, he is going to line himself up a nice "Smith" like payday. And it shouldn't be from GB. Low end, let's say he gets 2 sacks, what is that worth? My guess? More than what GB will be willing to pay him. HIgh end, let's say he gets 9 sacks, what is that worth? My guess? Waaaay more than what GB will be willing to pay him. He is kind of in "no man's land" in terms of a GB contract.

    I was thinking about that very thing last night when the fans were chanting "MVP. MVP. MVP." Aaron and Yelli in the audience. Giannis on the floor. It is kind of amazing.

    Ran a draft at The Draft Network...been a little while. I think I'm "done" and will just stand on this one. #12..Brian Burns, EDGE. #30...Noah Fant, TE. #44...AJ Brown, WR. #75...Amani Hooker, S. #114...Tytus Howard, OT. #118...Daniel Wise, DL. #150...Devine Ozibo, RB. #185...Cameron Sutton, LB. #194...Michael Jordan, G. #226....Tim Harris, CB.
  12. 2019 Draft Discussion

    I'd rather Burns be a spectator for a while while he learns his craft. He's raw. For him? I'll give him plenty of time. I just don't expect him to be that good right away. I actually expect him to get thrown around pretty good. For the first 8 games or so, I hope we see Fack/Gilbert. After 8 games, more snaps should go up for Burns. Then watch out for him in years 2+. That is when he is going to shine.
  13. 2019 Draft Discussion

    I agree, 100% that he best fits what MLF appears to want to do on offense. Your word "ideal" really fits. And I"d be disappointed if we used our highest draft pick in what seems like forever on a blocking tight end because he fits what we do. You can get that later. I'd understand the pick and I'd be critical of it. And with every third down catch that results in a first, he will be putting the dagger right into me. And he's gonna do that.

  15. 2019 Draft Discussion

    Oliver checks all the boxes for me. Premium position, excellent athlete, can play right away...etc. Yah, I'd trade up for him or Allen if they made it to #6. I can get pretty excited about a bunch of other guys at #12, but none of them checks all the boxes like Oliver. But...I'd be excited for Burns and his potential. And I'd not let Year One get me down, cuz he is a project with insane upside. I can get excited about both White and Bush because we'd be adding a star in the making in the middle of the defense, but...just not a premium position. I can get excited about Wilkens and Ferrell, too. Offensive linemen there wouldn't excite me, but I'd be okay with it. I'd not get excited for Hock. And he'd prove me wrong.
