  1. Someone decided it's OK to delete my posts without holding themselves accountable, which has become a troubling trend. When I considered the overall diminishing content, the inflow of uninformed opinions/statements, how these arguments were starting (as me calling someone out for having an uninformed opinion) to how they were were ending (off topic and crybaby-ish), and finally upon seeing my posts get deleted while a tyrant allowed their own non-football related posts about me remain, I thought, "you know what, it might be my time to move on." Then I wanted to take a peek yesterday, and I was actually impressed with some of the content of the posts, until I saw one which broke every rule of logic out there. I made a harmless post and went back to doing what one does in these quarantine times, until I saw a DM in my emails from a particular individual who seems unhappy with being proven to be so foolish time and time again. I said to myself, "should I just leave, or should I make my point heard with a very intelligent football-related post, which will make this person look like a fool in the process." So I made a decision. If one were to chart the past 10 years of first round picks, here is what the breakdown looks like in terms of safest/most successful position group investments to least successful by charting "successes" as players who were primary starters. Since some of the player's are out of the league right now, Jet X came up with a nifty cumulative "primary starter rate" which is the ratio of total seasons accumulated as a team's primary starter out of possible seasons. My breakdown of each is below. #1 – CENTER (77.4% primary starter rate) Picks: 7 Possible seasons: 31 Seasons as primary starter: 24 (77.4% – 1st) Approximate value: 202 (6.52 per season – 2nd) First-Team All-Pro seasons: 3 (9.7% – 3rd) Pro Bowl seasons: 14 (45.2% – 1st) First-Team All-Pro players: 2 (28.6% – 2nd) Pro Bowl players: 3 (42.9% – 3rd) #2 – OFFENSIVE TACKLE (75.6% primary starter rate) Picks: 38 Possible seasons: 225 Seasons as primary starter: 170 (75.6% – 2nd) Approximate value (explanation): 1,278 (5.68 per season – 3rd) First-Team All-Pro seasons: 6 (2.7% – 11th) Pro Bowl seasons: 14 (14.2% – 11th) First-Team All-Pro players: 5 (13.2% – 9th) Pro Bowl players: 12 (31.6% – 10th) #3 – SAFETY (71.2% primary starter rate) Picks: 22 Possible seasons: 111 Seasons as primary starter: 79 (71.2% – 3rd) Approximate value: 540 (4.86 per season – 10th) First-Team All-Pro seasons: 10 (9.0% – 4th) Pro Bowl seasons: 24 (21.6% – 4th) First-Team All-Pro players: 6 (27.3% – 3rd) Pro Bowl players: 9 (40.9% – 4th) #4 – EDGE (70.2% primary starter rate) Picks: 10 Possible seasons: 47 Seasons as primary starter: 33 (70.2% – 4th) Approximate value: 335 (7.13 per season – 1st) First-Team All-Pro seasons: 8 (17.0% – 1st) Pro Bowl seasons: 18 (38.3% – 2nd) First-Team All-Pro players: 4 (40.0% – 1st) Pro Bowl players: 6 (60.0% – 1st) #5 – OFFENSIVE GUARD (69.3% primary starter rate) Picks: 15 Possible seasons: 88 Seasons as primary starter: 61 (69.3% – 4th) Approximate value: 462 (5.25 per season – 7th) First-Team All-Pro seasons: 9 (10.2% – 2nd) Pro Bowl seasons: 24 (27.3% – 3rd) First-Team All-Pro players: 4 (26.7% – 4th) Pro Bowl players: 6 (40.0% – 5th) #6 – 1-3T DEFENSIVE TACKLE (66.7% primary starter rate) Picks: 34 Possible seasons: 192 Seasons as primary starter: 128 (66.7% – 6th) Approximate value: 1,039 (5.41 per season – 5th) First-Team All-Pro seasons: 11 (5.7% – 5th) Pro Bowl seasons: 29 (15.1% – 9th) First-Team All-Pro players: 5 (14.7% – 8th) Pro Bowl players: 9 (26.5% – 12th) #7 – LINEBACKER (60.0% primary starter rate) Picks: 24 Possible seasons: 115 Seasons as primary starter: 69 (60.0% – 7th) Approximate value: 611 (5.31 per season – 6th) First-Team All-Pro seasons: 5 (4.3% – 9th) Pro Bowl seasons: 21 (18.3% – 7th) First-Team All-Pro players: 1 (4.2% – 12th) Pro Bowl players: 7 (29.2% – 11th) #8 – CORNERBACK (58.4% primary starter rate) Picks: 38 Possible seasons: 221 Seasons as primary starter: 129 (58.4% – 8th) Approximate value: 970 (4.39 per season – 12th) First-Team All-Pro seasons: 12 (5.4% – 7th) Pro Bowl seasons: 35 (15.8% – 8th) First-Team All-Pro players: 8 (21.1% – 6th) Pro Bowl players: 15 (39.5% – 7th) #9 – TIGHT END (58.3% primary starter rate) Picks: 9 Possible seasons: 36 Seasons as primary starter: 21 (58.3% – 9th) Approximate value: 114 (3.17 per season – 13th) First-Team All-Pro seasons: 0 (0.0% – 13th) Pro Bowl seasons: 4 (11.1% – 13th) First-Team All-Pro players: 0 (0.0% – 13th) Pro Bowl players: 3 (33.3% – 9th) #10 – 5T DEFENSIVE END (56.3% primary starter rate) Picks: 42 Possible seasons: 252 Seasons as primary starter: 142 (56.3% – 10th) Approximate value: 1,267 (5.03 per season – 9th) First-Team All-Pro seasons: 13 (5.2% – 8th) Pro Bowl seasons: 38 (15.1% – 10th) First-Team All-Pro players: 7 (16.7% – 7th) Pro Bowl players: 16 (38.1% – 8th) #11 – RUNNING BACK (53.3% primary starter rate) Picks: 16 Possible seasons: 90 Seasons as primary starter: 48 (53.3% – 11th) Approximate value: 457 (5.08 per season – 8th) First-Team All-Pro seasons: 5 (5.6% – 6th) Pro Bowl seasons: 17 (18.9% – 5th) First-Team All-Pro players: 4 (25.0% – 5th) Pro Bowl players: 9 (56.3% – 2nd) #12 – WIDE RECEIVER (49.7% primary starter rate) Picks: 34 Possible seasons: 191 Seasons as primary starter: 95 (49.7% – 12th) Approximate value: 902 (4.72 per season – 11th) First-Team All-Pro seasons: 9 (3.1% – 10th) Pro Bowl seasons: 35 (18.3% – 6th) First-Team All-Pro players: 3 (8.8% – 11th) Pro Bowl players: 8 (23.5% – 13th #13 – Quarterback (49.0% primary starter rate) Picks: 30 Possible seasons: 157 Seasons as primary starter: 77 (49.0% – 13th) Approximate value: 883 (5.62 per season – 4th) First-Team All-Pro seasons: 3 (1.9% – 12th) Pro Bowl seasons: 20 (12.7% – 12th) First-Team All-Pro players: 3 (10.0% – 10th) Pro Bowl players: 12 (40.0% – 5th) Enjoy.
  2. I feel like that's kind of every year, but for me I'm just trying to dot connect as much as possible. The sports marketing firm my cousin is with has close ties to a number of agents and quite a few prospects in this class are their clients. Two of the top 6 "consensus" are in her network, and from what she has heard from agents is that they feel really good about their prospects going in round 1. I guess the logic behind it - valid or not - is that lack of pro days and additional workouts doesn't allow HCs/GMs/scouts to "sensationalize" prospects the way they usually do. For OL it's pretty much you're solid or you're not, unless you have a significant injury history or if you're extremely raw, and the "statistics" say it's the safest position to select in the first round. I think when you factor everything in from different combine format (resulting in a lot of skewed times/non-workouts), lack of normal offseason/pro day circuit, COVID-19 uncertainty going forward, talent pool, need across NFL teams, and it being the largest position group (5 starters), it seems to just make sense
  3. Yes- I think a combination of other teams looking to move up and the allure of a 3rd year option would propel the move. I think they take two guys they value highly and see where each fits best. Bartch's lack of length indicates he's likely best inside at G. He'd likely be a backup for his rookie season, but I think he'd replace either Billy Turner next year since they can get out of the contract, or Jenkins if he moves to C. Corey Lindsay is going to be a free agent after the season. Now I realize that GB has traditionally invested later picks in lineman, but Gutekunst has made it clear that he's not Ted Thompson. He's also shown a tendency to "stack" positions in the draft, but drafting multiple players in the same position group. I think he's going to prioritize the OL more than Thompson did, especially with Rodgers entering the 4th quarter of his career. The one thing that kind of throws this prediction into whack is their need for WRs and the Ricky Wagner acquisition, but Wagner isn't making much and again, the draft is flush with WRs deep in to the 3rd day.
  4. Albert Breer also mentioned that with so much uncertainty in this draft RE: COVID-19 teams are opting for "safer" picks and scouts believe that means "draft big guys" (OL). I've also heard that we could see the most tackles go in round 1 ever. I would think Wilson is a fit for the Seahawks at the end of round 1 given his playing style and their need/infatuation with size-athleticism
  5. I agree. Passing on a WR all together in both rounds would seem tough, but I'm keeping in mind how their administration has sought to build the team (inside-out), Staley's age, Thomas's ability to potentially play guard for a season before moving to tackle, and of course the depth of the draft class at WR as opposed to the scarcity of legitimate tackles. I also considered their current group: Deebo is Deebo, but they seem to really like Bourne, and I'm not sure if they're going to give up on Hurd and Pettis just yet even though usage seems to suggest they could. I think we see a record number of WRs taken in the 3rd-5th rounds, which is part of the reason why I didn't make one lol- becomes too complicated as WRs we had rated in the 6th will come off the board while someone like Bryan Edwards falls out. So if this were to go 7 rounds, I'd probably have them jump up to the 4th by sending a 5th and a future pick to draft an X receiver like Isaiah Coulter or John Hightower
  6. Enlighten us, who would you take - since mocks seem to not fit who you want the eagles to take 🙄 Great work @goldfishwars as always. You cover all the 3 position groups the Joe Douglas has made clear the Jets will go heavy on: WR, DE, OL. Still not convinced the Jets will go WR round 1 the tackles are still available, but it's certainly possible. Terrell Lewis is a player I really want as a fan, but I personally don't think he'll make it to 48. Being said he's certainly someone I'd love seeing in green and white. Just can't teach his traits and while the injuries are concerning, but he's the kind of guy you take a risk on if you're looking to hit a home run. Star potential. A few notes on some Douglas trends as they relate to teams he's been a member of (since 2002): First round: OL most often (4 times) with DE (3) the next most frequent Second round: Douglas always cites Ozzie Newsome regarding his draft philosophy, so one trend to point out that makes sense: Ozzie used 8/17 2nd round picks on EDGE rusher during his tenure as GM (2002-2018). I don't think it to be a coincidence. Third round: Douglas teams targeted OL often in round 3, but DB was the most popular trend (4 safeties, 2 CBs). Fourth round: RB, WR, and DE galore. 6 4th's spent on RBs, 5 on WRs, and another 5 on DEs. Ravens loved stockpiling 4th round picks Fifth round: pretty random - no real trend, but TE was a popular pick. Sixth round: QBs, WRs, and OL most frequent selection. Seventh round: WRs and RBs overwhelming majority
  7. I posted a mock to see if my predictions fall in line with what each fanbase’s respective team would conceivably do in order to compare how accurate I ultimately am; appeasing people isn’t my goal (most fans are not thrilled with every one of their teams picks every year as it is). I’ll take some of the constructive feedback, do more research, and make a new one right before the draft.
  8. To you, and again, I really don’t care what you think. Sorry.
  9. For this one I'm relying on Benjamin Allbright. As we know he was a former poster on here and happens to be very tapped in. He's been rather adamant that the Broncos love Ruggs and may have him as their top receiver. Specifically, he says that Fangio is fond of guys like him for his own team because he knows they're the hardest to defend. When you couple that intel with the very real info that the Jets have been eyeing Ruggs for over a year and the apparent infatuation Adam Gase has with him, I would think the Broncos (holders of 10 draft picks, 3 of which in the 3rd round) would consider making that jump to get a player they're really hot for
  10. I'm saying that the Eagles will really like a playmaker who figures to be a movement Z who can create yards for himself after the catch. I'm saying they will seek out receivers with burst, acceleration, and explosive playmaking ability. Ruggs isn't on the board, so I penciled in a like kind replacement. May not have the 4.2 wheels, but Ruggs and Aiyuk are both big play threats who can be YAC nightmares or beat defenses over the top. I get it if you're not a fan of it, but the way you and @Jeezla dismissed it was as if it was blasphemous. I think it's a realistic possibility despite what some of the "draftniks" like Matt Miller and guys at thedraftnetwork or profootballnetwork say, who contradict themselves every time they post a new mock every other day. Again, totally understand if your not a fan of it, just saying I think it's a realistic scenario.
  11. A former scout who is well respected in the industry and one of the most tapped in draft analysts who has a personal connection with Howie Roseman thinks the player is a clear first round guy, has him rated as his 24th overall player (only 3 spots shy of the 21st pick) and had him mocked 24th in his most recent mock, but a few Eagles fans on a message board think it would be a horrible pick at 21? Please. With all due respect, I'm not looking for everyone to be happy campers. I'm not trying to appease anyone. I'm just trying to predict what will happen. I can't say that I'm sure where Aiyuk will go, but I'm reading the tea leaves. Jeremiah and Dane Brugler (who had the Eagles selecting Brandon Aiyuk in his most recent mock draft) are two of the most respected voices in the draft community and two of the most accurate mock drafters overall. I'm going to trust them and stick with my prediction.

  14. I was trying to find the right partner. They usually make a lot of deals with the Ravens and I almost had them make a deal there. If Murray were on the board I’d have them move down
  15. Edited. Need to fix this version of the draft.
  16. Thanks for these corrections. I have to take another look at what I did wrong
  17. For Jacksonville: I think Ngakoue gets traded after the draft or possibly on Day 2. I'm beginning to think Trent Williams lands somewhere after the draft as well
  18. Thanks- I think Joe Douglas will view Becton as the mecca of OL prospects. Size, speed, strength guy. Wirfs may be the top guy on his board. I'll be posting Jets-related content on twitter. Just to provide some background: I don't do drafts based on what I like- it's what I think they will do, what I read about (trends/philosophies/etc.), teams' positional spending/how they stack their contracts, and what I hear from the limited amount of sources I have in the industry. Cleveland is interesting in that they don't have many needs and their only one coming at a non-premium position, and if you look at the teams Berry has been a part of they've always prioritized the lines and acquiring as many picks as possible. Sure, I can see Cleveland staying at 10 and take a tackle, but I'm just following the trends and the news I'm hearing and the breadcrumbs which suggest that teams are going to look to move ahead of the Jets out of fear that the top 3 WRs will go 11-12-13. They can easily grab a safety in the 3rd-5th, harder to find impact pass rushing interior lineman in that range.
  19. Round 1 1 CIN Joe Burrow QB LSU Might be some trade talk, but I expect Burrow to be a Bengal. 2 WAS Chase Young DE OSU Some flirting with Tua, but they go with Young.

Most active team by far.
  20. Word for the dedicated posters on here who will listen lol: Anyone who says they would like "any one" of the media consensus top rated prospects in the draft simply isn't very informed. Scheme and fit play into it, and there are players that the media has rated outside of their top 8, top 10, top 12 that will go a lot higher on draft day and will end up being better players than the consensus leads you to beleive. Not everyone has the time, effort, or attention to follow prospects and develop their own analysis for players and that's OK, but don't let these people post with a sense of entitlement as if they're actually doing the research, actually watching the tape, actually reading the reports; don't let them get away with acting like they know what their talking about when they don't. Instead, be open with what you believe and why you believe it. Challenge those people to put up better content. Respect those who have their own beliefs but demand they provide good, insightful reasons for them. Best practice: ask a person why they like a specific player and what they don't like about that player. Ask why they think that player fits with the Jets. Ask why they have a certain opinion. It usually separates those who know what they're talking about, i.e. @Rockice_8 who has been giving some input on why he ranks his players the way he does and honest assessments of attributes he really likes (i.e. the desire to have Ruggs - for the record, my emotional side feels the same way and I somewhat selfishly wish that the OL class wasn't so strong- I want nothing more than to see those 50+ yard TDs, but conventional wisdom says OL is the better way to go), which are clearly uninfluenced by popular opinion or perceived need whether you agree with him or not. He does a good job of expressing the specific trait that is appealing about a player and how they can fit with this team, and why he likes one prospect over another. Short and sweet analysis like that make it clear who the good posters are from those who are phonies and simply base their desires off of fantasy and "lists" and "big boards", which so conveniently change by the day. We're all Jets fans in here, but the reason I chose this board over others was because it wasn't like what twitter is today: one sentence BS filled with sensationalist attitudes, criticism, no depth and nothing but negativity. Be like Rockice. Appreciate guys like Rockice. @NewAgeand I used to have good philosophical discussions about the game- didn't always agree, but the opinions were informed and were sound. Same can be said for @jetsfan4life51, @ekill08x (who was certainly the biggest pessimist on here, but 10 years later turned out to be very right lol), @TheChad who like Chad Pennington, seems to be a quiet observer and then drops a very good post, @KingOfTheDot who has been putting some very good stuff out there, @JetsandI - who I could swear has been on here as like 8 different users - but not positive, @mattmanz91, @Spiel612 who used to be GREAT, @BlaZeN37 who I've worked with many times on FFMD, as well as @Bianconero, @Dr.O, @MoLewis57, @Jag68Sid87, @xenajets... there are tons of guys and the list goes on and on. Will always love the old FF, just doesn't seem the content it's nearly as good today as it was back then, despite the upgrades to the site. But point is, appreciate the good content, appreciate the people who have original ideas and posts, appreciate those with informed opinions. It's OK to have an opinion- no one can take that away from you- but I respect those who at least post an informed one. Feel free to DM for my instagram or twitter, where I may begin be posting more Jet related stuff- possibly consolidated in another blog until this goddman quarantine is over. Otherwise, I may be around from time to time in the NFL General/NFL Draft sections, or like I said DM me (it goes to my email so I'll see it). Signing off for now! ✌🏼
  21. Same. The depth of the class is going to push guys into round 3 more than people think. That said, I think we can see 10 in the 3rd. Maybe more.
  22. Taking bets: under/over 6 WRs in round 1 under/over 10 WRs in the top 50
  23. You would see no meltdown here, I would just say how I believed it wasn't the smart approach based on all the data and studies available. Logic points to drafting a top 15-level WR over an top 15-level OL as the inferior approach, and I'm not going to change that belief regardless who we draft. I also think when you talk about resource allocation - whether it be in football, assets, or even accumulation of goods, it's smart to spend your most valuable resources on the most scarce assets, and use less valuable resources where assets are more plentiful. That said, he's the GM, he's entitled to build the team in his image no matter what I think. I would support the player, hope the player performs well, and hope the player results in us winning more games- but I can still think it would be a foolish decision. Anyway, I'm pretty confident that won't be the case.
