  1. Yup, I traded down twice in the first round acquiring an extra 2nd, and 3rd round pick and then an extra 3rd and reacquired another 4th to replace the 4th lost in the Clinton Dix trade. Finally I swapped a higher 4th and 5th rounder to get a 4th, 5th, and 6th rounder.
  2. Your Picks: Round 1 Pick 26 (IND): Greedy Williams, CB, LSU Long, athletic cornerback who is more smooth and fluid than twitchy and sudden in his coverage. Williams has the instincts and tools to play a variety of coverages, but his length and pattern-matching talent will likely get him drafted to handle press-man duties. His ball production dropped a little from 2017 and he continued to struggle with finding the ball downfield, but he is rarely ever out of position. He needs to get stronger and more competitive in run support, but he has the talent and traits to become a CB1 Round 2 Pick 14: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, FS, Florida Big, athletic defensive back who requires tape study from 2017 and 2018 assess his optimal usage. Some teams will see him as a big slot defender who can blitz, support the run, handle zone duties or play man on big receivers and matchup tight ends. Others will see him as a Cover-1 high safety with the range and ball-tracking to take it away over the top. Gardner-Johnson is too often a step behind in his reads and reaction allowing completions that could be breakups. His versatility and talent could make him an early starter with a high-ceiling if he can put it all together. Round 2 Pick 22 (HOU): Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio St. Blue-chip athlete with elite package of size, speed and fluidity as a big slot receiver. Campbell's athletic attributes could create a coverage conundrum if his offensive coordinator puts him in a diversified role that allows him to attack vertically more often. Teams know he's a gifted athlete, but he needs to add more polish as a route-runner to become a well-rounded target instead of a gadget slot. His upside is bolstered by his traits while his special teams ability and talent with the ball in his hands should level out any bust concerns. Round 3 Pick 12: Connor McGovern, C/OG, Penn St. Reliable run blocker with NFL-ready size and strength but exploitable holes in his pass sets that need to be addressed as quickly as possible. His starting experience at both center and guard could bring additional interest in McGovern, who would be a bigger, stronger option at center for teams facing odd-front power in their division. He is a good fit in gap and inside-zone run schemes, but his tendency to over-set in pass protection could be challenging to correct. He's an early starter as a Day 2 pick, but Year 1 could have ups and downs. Round 3 Pick 22 (HOU): Andy Isabella, WR, Massachusetts competitive, well-rounded receiver possessing both elite quickness and long speed to go with solid play strength. Isabella has the feet and fakes to uncover in a hallway closet, and the former high school sprint champion proved to Georgia that his ability to win deep should not be underestimated. Isabella could become a menace on option routes with the ability to add vertical routes from the slot, but he must improve his pass-catching consistency and smoothness into his breaks in order to transition all that speed to the NFL. Round 3 Pick 25 (IND): Christian Miller, OLB, Alabama Long, lean rush backer with above-average athletic traits that could serve him well as a pass rusher. Teams could be a little gun-shy with Miller considering the talent he played alongside and his solo season of production. What will be hard to ignore are his long arms, ability to attack the edge with speed and footwork to manufacture dangerous inside counters. He's talented enough to earn his keep chasing quarterbacks, but he'll have to gain strength and prove he can handle run duties in order to play every down. Round 3 Pick 32 (COMP): Ryan Finley, QB, NC State While Finley's accuracy, production and mode of operation has been static over the last three years, his ability to improve in all areas has been impressive. He works well in a controlled environment, reads alignments and knows where the ball should go, but he failed to elevate his production against the best in-game competition and then again at the Senior Bowl. His intelligence and accuracy could find him work as a quality backup with the potential to find some future starts. Round 4 Pick 29 (BUF): Bobby Evans, OT, Oklahoma Three-year starter with tackle experience on both sides who plays with excellent core strength, good hand placement and a noticeable nasty streak. Evans is below average as an athlete but makes up for it with upper-body power and solid technique. Despite being under 6-foot-5, his arm length (34 3/4 inches) might convince a team to try him at right tackle before any moves inside. He might be scheme-dependent, but strength and toughness give him a shot at becoming a good backup with eventual starter potential. Round 5 Pick 9 (BUF): Trayveon Williams, RB, Texas A&M Productive runner who added weight and stepped into an every-down role and became one of the big SEC surprises in his first season in Jimbo Fisher's offense. Williams isn't overly dynamic by NFL standards, but he's a calm runner who stacks moves and eludes defenders to post his fair share of chunk runs. He's tough but undersized and might get pigeon-holed as a committee back with above-average third-down value thanks to his tenacity as a pass-blocker Round 5 Pick 35 (COMP): John Cominsky, DE, University of Charleston The one-time option quarterback should be able to impress with his athletic testing during postseason workouts, but he still needs to keep adding play strength to be ready to handle NFL offensive linemen. Cominsky is built like a 3-4 defensive end and flashes potential to handle those types of run duties down the road. However, without more threat as a pass rusher, his NFL potential could be limited. Round 6 Pick 8 (BUF): Cameron Smith, ILB, USC Inside linebacker whose four-year run can best be described as smart and steady. Smith is lacking the physical traits and athletic ability to excite general managers and his tape is hardly splashy. However, he has a keen sense of play development and uses smart angles and proper technique to do his job effectively. He could hear his name called in the middle rounds, but it won't take long for a coaching staff to look beyond his limitations and see a future starter. Round 6 Pick 33 (COMP): Jalen Hurd, WR, Baylor Hurd was used as big slot but he might need to transition into a role outside to take advantage of his potential to stretch the field as a downfield ball-winner. He's still learning the nuances of the position, but he has outstanding traits, a great work ethic and an ability to get much better very quickly. While Hurd will be an NFL receiver, he offers a unique option of becoming a short-yardage banger near the goal line. His best days are in front of him. Round 7 Pick 13: Ed Alexander, DT, LSU Alexander played through some injuries as a junior, but over the course of his career, he was a solid nose tackle for LSU. In 2018, Alexander totaled 28 tackles with three tackles for a loss, one sack and one pass batted. As a sophomore - 17 tackles, one sack - and freshman - 13 tackles - he had modest production. In the NFL, Alexander would fit best as a nose tackle in a 4-3 or 3-4 defense. Round 7 Pick 39 (COMP): Trey Pipkins, OT, Sioux Falls Developmental tackle prospect who offers NFL-caliber size, length and athletic ability for teams willing to work out the technique kinks. Pipkins has quick feet but needs to prove he can gain adequate depth with his initial pass slides in order to work to his set points against edge speed. He has Day 3 draft potential, but the jump in competition makes him a likely practice squad candidate early on. Just a quick mock before I head into work. I'll be back with capsule profiles on these folk after I get back in from work.
  3. Trading Down

    I wouldn't touch D.K. Metcalf with a ten foot pole personally. For an alleged big, strong receiver he missed nearly two seasons out of three that he played at Ole Miss with season ending injuries to his foot and neck. There are too many legitimate needs on this squad to take a chance on another injury prone player in the early rounds of the draft. Metcalf has Kevin White 2.0 written all over him.
  4. Is it too early to focus on the 19 draft?

  5. GDT - Prime Time - Browns to ground the Jets

    Just dropping in to say congrats to you guys on a hard earned victory, Hopefully it'll be the first of many in the Mayfield era for you guys.
  6. Get the Browns on the Phone Now!!!

    You can pick up that dumpster fire if you want to. Dude has unmistakable sheer talent however its done in by his ten cent brain. Easy pass on this one as he's totally unreliable at this point.
  7. Jake Eldrenkamp was just released by the Rams. He got caught up in the Rams C shuffle and was the odd man out. I fully expect them to try to sneak him on their practice squad as he's a good young technician but needs to bulk up more for his 6'5" frame. He could definitely be an asset for the Skins if they were so inclined to take a look at him.
  8. Tyrod BENCHED

    Well now that you wont have Tyrod giving up 298 yds rushing to the Saints or fumbling away two completed passes on promising drives vs the Jets im sure you guys will be golden.
  9. Joe Giradi will not return as manager of the Yankees

    Steinbrenner's gotta Steinbrenn just like their old man.
