  1. Why are interior OL and RTs so underrated?

    Positional value goes like this QB CB WR OT EDGE 3 down LBs and DTs, IOLs, (elite 2 way safeties and TEs spill into this group, maybe a top RB if elite pass catcher) TE/S/slot players and then RB a half tier down, with run stuffing DTs, blocking TEs, box safeties etc. You can nitpick it but its close enough.

    Dear lord for all of us stop
  3. My top 3 best and worst drafts.

    its elite, you dont' have to sugar coat it. Boyle is like a 4 or 5 RAS and basically 100% of TEs that produce in this league as receivers have an 8+ RAS

    Sample is the Kittle of this draft

    Correct
  6. EARLY DRAFT GRADES FOR THE 2019 CLASS

    Right, but is one of those DEs in this draft? Does he fit our scheme and lack major injury or character issues? Yes, TEs worth that are scarce, that's why we chose one when we had a chance in large part, the extreme scarcity. You're getting somewhere here. ( similarly,, paying 9 mil a year for a run stuffing DT is stupid, but when you have Snacks freakin' Harrison, you pay that man heez money!) Burton would have been a great get for us that's for sure. His contract is clearly out of line with the market just based on past deals and the % of increase alone. Flowers was PFF's #2 edge last year, one spot above Khalil Mack Thank you for coming to my Ted talk?

    The data doesn't really back this up though in terms of true value on field. TE Is in the lower tier of positions, but right in the mix with Gs, safeties,slots, off LBs and run stuffing DTs. Its nice to draft from the premium positions, but you need to fill out your whole team at some point and having a great player at any position is always an advantage. I doubt anyone will be pissed in the end if Hockenson ends up as anything between Heath Miller and Gronk

  14. EARLY DRAFT GRADES FOR THE 2019 CLASS

    17 rookies this past year received starter caliber grades from PFF. 35 second year players. Instant impact is less of a thing than people think.

    I grade us a B+ Stuck to our plan, filled holes, got a potential steal late in Amani. Hock - B - I'm not a fan of TE, but missing on first rounders crushes you and Hock will be a nice solid double. Tavai - C - He's everything Patricia wants in a LB, but non athletic LBs scare me still. Also some injury history. Harris - A - Played for our DC, captain of a good d with talented players, first 4.4 speed safety we've had in a while, plus athleticism overall, clear upgrade/replacement for Wilson Bryant - Not a huge fan, but his athleticism, length and strength are what we look for on the edge. He'll set the edge at the least. REminds me of Romeo Amani - Was my CB1, 23 overall Late picks - Took fun swings here. T. Johnson gives the backfield speed it lacks, plus has KR ability. PJ makes sense behind Snacks, the WR has a ton of upside and Nauta is a perfect blocking TE for this O. None likely break out and become stars, all have a potential role.
