Post-draft leaks

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This is the same smoke and mirrors as all the predraft chatter. Team officials and sources will always try to appease the fanbase, underlining how big of a steal all their picks were. I can't remember the last time when Steve Keim of the Cardinals didn't come out after the draft claiming they had a 1st round grade on their 3rd round pick. Actually this year he may be right with Josh Jones. So basically all teams in the 1st are on record that they got a top 5 or top 10 prospect. You hear it each and every year. And in the mid and late rounds, you always hear how this player stood out from the rest of the pool, and how nobody could believe he is available. Please do yourself a favor don't buy that stuff anymore lol. Boards are different, no doubt. But don't believe things like Ayiuk, who i like, was the 1st WR on the 49ers board, or that each team that drafted a 1st round OT (or at least the top 4 OTs) magically got exactly the OT they had ranked highest. Smoke and mirrors!

The Redskins were all-in on Saahdiq Charles.  Ron Rivera and Kyle Smith did a deep dive on his background and issues with the team, as well as other front office guys.  

Rivera never seriously considered Tu'a at #2 and it seemed that none of the offers came close to what they expected.  

We didn't sign a ton of UDFA (the number is four, along with an overseas signing) because of the concern of developing everyone over a shortened offseason.  

Despite rumors of players being involved in a trade for Trent Williams, the Redskins never wanted to do that wanted draft picks only.

He supposedly put on 30 pounds from his 2019 playing weight to the Combine. I'm very curious to see how that impacts his game (in a positive way; he was clearly out-muscled on a number of occasions and if he can maintain his foot speed with that added weight, watch out).

It’s hard for me to believe a lot of this stuff

For the Bengals, they have come out and said they had pretty much everyone of their picks rated at least a round higher, some two rounds from where they were picked.

Chargers were apparently fine with taking any of the top 3 QBs at 6 (ie. Tua or Burrows).

re: Simmons at 8 - It was fun to hear Kliff Kingsbury to saying immediately after the combine interview the team had with him that "I'm good with him at 8 if you are".
