  1. Depends how far he’s “throwing” it. Also, is he using a true Andrew Luck throwing motion? I doubt it, unless he’s just dumping it in front of himself. If you handed me a bowling ball to throw, I’d be heaving it like a shot put. Assuming the ball is just a bit heavier than a Tom Brady regulation football, I’d still be launching it a bit higher to try to achieve a decent flight. We’ll see, but it isn’t silly to be skeptical.

    Never draft a Georgia Bulldog

    You’re not someone of interest to me, and I’m not running contests to see how many likes I get. From now on, just ignore all of my posts. That shouldn’t be hard to do.

    The only 6 digit code this kid could remember would be easy to guess (123456, etc) or he wrote it down and taped it to his iPad!

    Any password this Georgia Bulldog could remember would be relatively simple to guess and if it was complicated he probably wrote it down and left it — where else? — taped to his iPad!

    Supes 2018 draft analysis

    Many Browns fans were upset that they passed on Chubb for Ward. Many viewed Chubb as a better overall talent than the Browns 2017 #1 pick Garrett!

    Supes 2018 draft analysis

    The Browns picked Nevada guard Austin Corbett at No. 33 to try out at left tackle, which he played a little in college. They are thinking of moving Joel Bitonio, another guard out of Nevada who played left tackle in college, from left guard to left tackle if Corbett fails there. This is all in an effort to replace Joe Thomas. Even if their third option, moving right tackle Shon Coleman to the left side, works, then Corbett likely plays right tackle. Any way you look at it, the pick of Corbett the guard was intended to replace a tackle.

    Exaggerating to make a point is NEVER "silly."

    https://chicago.suntimes.com/sports/bears-ipad-among-items-stolen-from-first-round-pick-roquan-smiths-car/ If the reports are correct, Roquan: 1. Left his Bears iPad (playbook) in his car 5 p.m. Friday. 2. Reported 11:45 a.m. Saturday that contents of the car had been stolen. 3. May have left his BMW unlocked according to police. The Bears remotely wiped his playbook? How many copies do you think are out there, having had 18 hours to make them?

    Guards drafted

    Chubb was only "gone" because Ballard traded down from #3. Before the draft, no one knew the Giants were taking Barkley for certain either -- So Ballard traded away a good shot at Barkley, too. And don't discount Ward. Browns GM Dorsey said they had Ward rated even with Chubb but they already had Garrett, Ogbah and others for edge rushing. Picking a guard in the top ten isn't insane, it's dumb. How great was Washington's offense (with Scherff) in protecting RGIII? If Andrew takes off, he's fair game and no guard will save him.

    You are correct, sir.

    Guards drafted

    You don't draft a long snapper at #6 because you need one and he's the highest rated player in the draft. My point was that you can get guards good enough to protect Andrew later in the draft, while adding a real difference maker at a more important position. Ballard had a nice, lazy draft. That's the real picture here.

    Guards drafted

    It's not about picking the highest rated player or avoiding busts at all costs. If the highest rated player were a punter would you use the #6 pick on him if you needed one? Certain positions like QB and edge rushers are way more important than guards that you can pick up later. It's about maximizing the entire draft, not just taking one safe pick and grabbing a beer and easy chair. As to busts, any GM too afraid to make a pick because it could backfire should quit. They happen and you have to accept that and move on, otherwise you'll keep trading down to minimize your risk and assemble a nice bottom dweller.

    Please pick a year other than 2017 — ANY year — and we’ll look up which rounds the Pro Bowl guards were taken. I’m waiting...

    Guards drafted

    Here’s why most GM’s don’t waste valuable top 10 picks on guards... 2017 Pro Bowl Guards AFC Kelechi Osemele (Oak.) 2nd round, pick 60, Iowa State Marshal Yanda (Balt.) 3rd, 86, Iowa David DeCastro (Pitts.) 1st, 24, Stanford Richie Incognito (Buff.) 3rd, 81, Nebraska NFC Zach Martin (Dallas) 1st, 16, Notre Dame Brandon Scherff (Wash.) 1st, 5, Iowa T. J. Lang (Green Bay) 4th, 109, Eastern Michigan Trai Turner (Carolina) 3rd, 92, LSU Josh Sitton (Chicago) 4th, 135, Central Florida ————————— Avg draft position: 67 Three first rounders out of nine pro bowl guards, only one of which was picked as high as Nelson. Even if Nelson is better than Scherff, Ballard could’ve gotten two highly regarded guards after the first round. As I’ve stated many times, Ballard should’ve stayed put at #3 where he could’ve taken Darnold (or Mayfield depending on the Browns preference), Ward, Chubb, perhaps even Barkley. Then draft all the o-linemen he wanted. Most likely he would’ve drafted Chubb at #3, so there’s your pick for the defense. Ballard did okay but I believe he could’ve done much better.

    Thoughts on Ballard's vision

    Could've stayed put at #3 and picked Chubb. How's that suit you?
