  1. If he’s the 2nd player we take in this draft, I won’t be upset. But he definitely shouldn’t be the first.
  2. I’m not concerned about his effort. He’s great out there. But the guy wanted to retire because of head injuries. He will want to walk away from the game and pursue music at his earliest opportunity.
  3. You just can’t take this guy, IMO. The former medical retiree who admittedly is not very passionate about football. As a decision-maker, I’d be more than content to be wrong on a guy like that. You aren’t going far in the long run by taking risks like this.
  4. Interesting, and jives with the tea leaves. I really hope this draft works out to where we don’t draft Collins or Milton, though. In a trade down scenario, Christian Darrisaw makes a world of sense.
  5. https://www.nbcsports.com/edge/article/rankings/2021-nfl-draft-cb-rankings Maybe I’m late to the party on this analyst, since I had never heard of him before Jeff Cavanaugh quote tweeted him, but he has put together some absolutely fantastic player and position group breakdowns. I linked the CB breakdown, but he has them for every position. Highly recommended.
  6. Entirely agree about the 1st round, but not the 2nd. 2nd round picks are cheap resources, and the concentration of high quality players at those potions in round two is astounding.
  7. Well, I don’t really disagree, with this. That’s why you should have pipeline in young, cheap players rather than paying big 2nd contracts.
  8. The round 2 linebackers are a major bright spot of this draft. Some future pro bowlers, and an immediate replacements for Jaylon, can be had out of that group. I wouldn’t be mad about that at all.
  9. I’m not at all opposed to drafting a safety earlier. Identifying day 3 safeties with potential is not an argument against day 2 safeties. Having said that, it’s a weak safety class. The mistake would be forcing safety over a better player just because you decided you needed one.
  10. Haha crazy, that sounds almost exactly like my experience as well. Constant body aches, fever, and chills for right about 36 hours.
  11. I think there is a reasonable hope that, if LVE can stay healthy, he can be a really good LB still. But the injuries are a real concern, and that probably prevents you from picking up his 5th year option. So you are 1 year out from either letting him walk because he got hurt again, or having a hard decision about whether to pay him. Your hope for Jaylon is misplaced, IMO. The regression was not stark. He hasn’t been a net positive since McVay exposed him in the 2018 playoffs. And then you have Keanu Neal on a 1 year deal. So 2022 is setting up to be a potential mess at LB. It wo
  12. Donavan Wilson, Xavier Woods, and Kavon Frazier are/were all reasonable roster pieces. You can’t have superstars everywhere. I don’t think I understand the logic of avoiding safety altogether if they don’t address it early.
  13. I’m a little confused. No player in the 4th round or later should be viewed as a legitimate effort to address a hole. But you have to draft someone. A safety with upside feels like as reasonable a use of those assets as any.
  14. Prediction: Divine Deablo does not last until day 3 (and I’d be 100% on board for #75 or #99). The day 3 safeties that make a lot of sense to me are Sterns and Gillespie. If we get to the 4th round and haven’t drafted a safety, those are the guys I’ll have my eyes on.
