    I'm ok with Thompson. His diving into the ball carrier type tackling scares me. He doesn't wrap up. Montgomery/RB is too early for my liking. Maybe if he was to start, but nobody goes ahead of Damien Williams. If he stays healthy, Williams could be starting for quite awhile. Montgomery will vegitate on the bench. Bradbury is nowhere near a E.Jenkins or M.Johnson (who I'd prefer at LG) IMO. Pratt I was high on but have since come down off of. Who was your big board user? I'm finding Steve (fanspeak) and Bleacher Report are the better big boards to use. They seem to be more realistic to where the draft will go.

    I like Jenkins/Jordan to start. They'll be better than Morse and Allen/Erving. Jenkins was the best OC in the draft. Jordan is big and versatile having played 2 years OG and 1 year Center at Ohio State. Here's a quote from a WFNY article: https://waitingfornextyear.com/2019/01/ohio-state-buckeyes-michael-jordan-offensive-line-linemen/ I won't go so far as to claim Jordan is the 2nd. coming of Orlando Pace, but he's got a good start. Jordan is not a brawler or power guard, but he can pull and reposition nicely, seal off defenders and pass block on roll-outs. He's athletic. This is what Reid and Mahomes need, IMO.

    He handled himself well at the Senior Bowl. Seasoning on the PS is needed. He's also injury insurance. I suspect we'll make offers to Chris Conley and Marcus Kemp. Add Gary Jennings/draft and maybe a FA? I'm ok this year with that. I'm pretty sure we're not letting Ty Hill escape. We can add more DP's and FA's next year.

    Heavy OL? Not so much. One thing the Pats demonstrated was our need to strengthen the interior Oline. We need a new Center. Morse suffers too many concussions, which leaves our Oline vulnerable. E. Jenkins is a plug n play Center. We need an OG at LG to replace either Jeff Allen or Cam Erving. M. Jordan is a nice fit at OG and a Center backup. Erving is backup across the Oline (except C). Our weakest OT is E.Fisher. Trey Pipkens is a big, developmental OT. Fisher should not be resigned IMO (will help the CAP too). To answer your question "who are we cutting"? Morse, Murray and Koroma at Center. Allen (good run blocking, weak at PP)and Devey (old at 31 now). That's 5 spots open. The starting Oline is Fisher, M.Jordan, E.Jenkins, LDT and Schwartz. Backups are McKenzie, Erving at OG, Reiter at C, and Andrew Wylie at OT. Pipkens goes to the PS. That leaves 9 OL on board. Benny Snell is a quality replacement for K.Hunt. I drafted Gary Jennings at WR. He's good. Let's see if he can be great. Yes, I'd lose Sammy Watkins and would not resign. So we'd have T.Hill, S. Watkins, Chris Conley, D. Robinson, Gary Jennings, Marcus Kemp, (probably Kelvin Benjamin, Pringle and Gehrig Deiter). That's 9 WR's on board. We can change/drop the last (3). To cut and use FA this year and the draft, FA next year, will change the makeup. I generally agree with you about the WR grouping and will look closer at this as time progresses. However the Interior Oline and Defense needed to be addressed in this upcoming draft. Therefore my attention was drawn to these areas.

    Big boards are all over the place with their rankings. I chose Matt Miller/Bleacher Report - seems to be the best and is consistent with the better picks. 7 rounds, multiple and difficult settings: 32: R1P32 MLB DEVIN BUSH MICHIGAN 61: R2P29 DT DEXTER LAWRENCE CLEMSON 63: R2P31 OC/G CONNOR MCGOVERN PENN STATE ; Center and LG need replacing with McGovern and Jordan 73: R3P9 FS CHAUNCEY GARDNER-JOHNSON FLORIDA 92: R3P28 OC/G MICHAEL JORDAN OHIO STATE 168: R5P29 CB HAMP CHEEVERS BOSTON COLLEGE ; INT machine 203: R6P28 RB ALEXANDER MATTISON BOISE STATE ; backup RB 215: R6P40 WR GARY JENNINGS WEST VIRGINIA;; in case Sammy Watkins goes down again 218: R7P2 OT TREY PIPKINS SIOUX FALLS; developmental OT with good skill set.

    Thank you. You are kind. But i'll carry this pain awhile longer. I'm getting too old to wait for a SB much longer.
  8. Return of Kareem??

    yep Glad he's not in our division.

    I wouldn't touch Simmons. No "rookie" season. How bad is the injury? He's also had shoulder issues. He wasn't invited to the Combine because he's a woman beater too. No thanks, too many issues.
  10. 2019 Draft Mocks

    These big, tall guys aren't impressing me. They fail to get separation. (ala, N'Keal Harry, David Sills)The NFL has gravitated to "big" corners to run with these guys and compete for "jump balls". I feel a greater need for smaller, shiftier guys who are faster, can run routes, get separation and have good hands (ala Andy Isabella, Terry McLaurin). Isabella would be good insurance too if Tyreek Hill gets injured, even if he's not as fast.
  11. Return of Kareem??

    The NFL also has yet to rule on Hunt's behavior. I suspect he'll miss game(s) next season.

    I like "fire" but not so much that you burn the house down. Don't make a public spectacle of your thoughts/actions.
  13. Steve Spagnuolo hired as DC

    B. Snell, RB, should be on our watch list.
