Goldfish's Way Too Early Draft Rankings 2021 (All up)


Recommended Posts

Washington at #13 (21), #21 (20), #2 (19), and #9 (18) over your past 4 years for an average slot of 11 to 12. I'd take that. Unfortunately, our 19 year was Dwayne, so in hindsight not as good.

Yeah, though it is a win that we didn't have to trade up for him, even though that was the prevailing narrative heading into the draft.  Imagine doing that and missing out on Young the following year as a result...

We also came away with McLaurin, Sweat, Holcomb, Moreland, and Harmon, which I'd call a successful draft.

Didn't dig through to see if anyone had done this yet, but a rolling tally of @goldfishwars's rankings for teams since 2018. 

Wasn't quite the bell curve I was expecting (a little more skewed than normal). Obviously this is one poster's opinion, but it's still something to look at. Nice job by those teams that averaged in the Top 10 (Balt, NYJ, Denver, Carolina, Miami). Ironically or not, only one was a playoff team last year. Of the teams in the 20's, 5 of the 9 were playoff teams. A lot factors go into this, but I just see it as interesting nonetheless.

Teams with the #1 pick in the draft finished 11th, 1st, 6th, and 21st (9.75 average). The Bears are a rollercoaster of extreme highs and lows haha.

And yet he only got a 1 year, $4.25M deal which ranks 46th in AAV of all OTs.  That's a stopgap salary, not legitimate starting OT money.

Plus 2 void years. What's your point? I don't care what he makes or where he ranks in AAV.  How much a player makes does not always determine how good or bad they are. Jimmy G ranks like 10th in AAV among QBs. Just because he's making franchise QB money doesn't make him a legit franchise QB. That's the most ridiculous thing you've said yet.

Titans rankings have aged pretty well.

2018: Middle to low ranking. Stole Landry, but got a disappointing but serviceable starter in Evans, Cruikshank is a depth contributor.

2019: Top 5 draft for sure. Simmons and Brown are among the best at their positions, Davis is a solid starter.

2020: Low ranking justified by Isaiah Wilson, even if they hit on Evans and Fulton.

PFF is also revisting prior year draft grades if anyone is interested. I believe they've only done 2019 & 2018 so far. Not sure if any other years will be included

Not sure bringing up void years helps your argument.  The only reason teams add void years is to help spread cap hits out over future years, particularly when the cap crunch is an issue.  The point I was trying to make is that if Ifedi was viewed as viable starting OL (and not just a stopgap) he would have either received a higher AAV or a long-term deal.  He received neither.  Even in a depressed FA market, he's getting paid peanuts.  And if you're going to use Jimmy G as an example as the end-all, be-all to the discussion you're missing the part where Jimmy G was paid on the 5 game stint in 2017 AND when I've repeatedly said this offseason he was grossly overpaid.  The onus is on you to prove he's a viable starting OL.  The only thing you've done thus far is throw out a strawman argument.
