Draft Rumors

Recommended Posts

Post your rumors and general draft related chatter here. 

Eric Galko on the Draft Rap podcast stated that a scout that met with all the prospects has said that teams are less than enamoured with Lamar Jackson not appointing an agent to date. That seems to be causing a few concerns internally. Also said Isaac Yiadom is a big name to watch out for the CB class between now and the draft.

Rumor has it JT Barrett is in the running for the Browns #1 pick. They are higher on him than most and feel that he could end up being the best QB of the group. Love his leadership.

That's a weird reason to not like a player. He didn't attach himself to some scumbag agent? Damn him!

Agents play a major role in the draft process, much bigger than the draft community realizes

Yiadom is going to have a Byron Jones-style rise if his combine goes well. I think I wrote something about it in the Hot Takes thread.

It’s pretty unusual, the majority of team meetings and interviews flow through agents. Right now, teams have to deal with Lamar and his mother.

I don't know if it's good or bad that the start to Lamar's draft process could be made in to a Madea movie.

You also have to consider how family over-involvement tends to be a bad thing for both player and team.

If only we had some sort of lesson to go off of, like a recent player being taken in the top 10 to a franchise in a major city who seemed to be greatly influenced by his parent(s). That would probably serve as a warning flag for other franchises.

Now imagine that the player is at the quarterback position. I can understand franchises seeing that as potential for concern down the road.

Ah yes, I believe you can look that one up if we're on the same page here,

Also I agree with where you're headed with that post, I can see why it may be a little concerning for teams

Interesting, very Browns-esque

He's being sarcastic, thankfully. As if having to live with JT for 4 years in college wasn't bad enough.

4 years?  Don't you mean 12?
