  1. TOP 100 BIG BOARD

    Aww, thanks. @tannenballs, I respect your views overall. I think that Josh Jones is definitely a top-20 prospect, so overall ranking isn't too far off from where I'd put him, though he's my OT5. My top 100 would probably have 18 or so tackles in it; this class is simply loaded at the position. The only OT that you have in the top-100 that I typically wouldn't include is Alex Taylor; I haven't scouted him specifically, though, so perhaps he's a good prospect. Do you see Washington OT Trey Adams as undraftable? He's easily a first-rounder based off his on-field play, but those injuries are insane. I love the respect that you're showing to James Morgan. He's legit, and I wouldn't blink if a team "reached" on him in the early third, or even second round. He was great in college and played fantastic football at the Shrine and then showed off a live-arm at the Combine. He really spins the ball when he throws it, but it's still a very catchable ball. One note is how seamlessly he transitioned at the Shrine practices with a group of pass-catchers that he'd never met before. He made them all look good, and they made him look good in return. Chemistry. That's a hugely important trait at the NFL level. I was also very impressed with his feel for receivers at the Combine. It only served to confirm what I saw at FIU; this guy is the real deal. He has good accuracy, good velocity, good range, throws a very catchable ball, has great size, and has experience in a pro scheme with spread concepts. That matches like 90% of NFL offenses these days, and the ones that it doesn't match are even more QB-friendly. He's charismatic and interviewed very well. There's not really a box that this guy doesn't check from a traits and intangibles standpoint. He doesn't have a whole lot of experience with big-time competition. His mobility is probably good enough, but doesn't project to be top-level in the NFL. Overall, I think he could be the guy in this class that surprises and ends up starting football games and being a competent NFL starting QB. He has the upside to be a top-12 or so QB. It gets me very frustrated when all these Twitter draftniks that chart passes include their top-8 draft-eligible QBs and have Nate Stanley, Steven Montez, or Brian Lewerke in their charts but don't even acknowledge Morgan's existence. Heck, it seems like even Shea Patterson has been more relevant to the media throughout the process. Morgan is better than all of those guys, though, and deserves more attention.
  2. Raiders sign Damarious Randall

    LOVE the profile pic!
  3. Blaine Gabbert to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    He hasn't been good, but he's been serviceable in spot starts. You can certainly do worse. Gabbert's mobility was a plus in Arizona, and he wasn't awful. He was able to guide the team to be competitive. He also wasn't awful when he was playing for San Francisco. Once again, he wasn't good, but he definitely wasn't bad enough to force his way out of the league. He doesn't really have upside, but he's probably still a top-10 backup at this point.
  4. FFMD ll 20’- Arizona Cardinals Front Office

    And with the 10th overall pick in the 2019 FFMD II NFL Mock draft (traded down), the Cardinals select Tristan Wirfs, OG, Iowa.

    Wins the MVLS award five years in a row. I hear he has a delicate touch and is extremely precise when the ball's in his hands.

    I want Wirfs to be RG. But I already posted that on the writer thread.

    Because you are the future projection of Les Snead living in the present. And in the future, he can't handle the stress of all these bad contracts and the need to keep up with the Cards/49ers/Seahawks...

    RIP @Counselor. He was so young, too.

    Word is that Wirfs was the Cards' top choice all along. For what it's worth, they nearly drafted CeeDee Lamb to play across from DeAndre Hopkins. And yes, @festiveonion, very astute of you to notice his announced position. The plan is to roll him out at RG this year, with the potential to play LT or RT depending upon how camp/the preseason go, as well as the remainder of the draft and late free agency. As it stands right now, Wirfs plays between Lamont Gaillard and Pro-Bowl RT Marcus Gilbert. It's also fair to point out that 2nd-year tackle Justin Murray played fantastic football down the stretch, and was a big part of the Cardinals' improvement during the second half of the season.
  14. With the 10th pick in the NFL Draft, the Air Raid Zona Cardinals select Tristan Wirfs, OG, Iowa. Your move, @bcb1213

    The scoop from Cardinals HQ is that KK was in love with Wills' feet.
