  1. Difference of opinion.
  2. No doubt, it is Barkley! It is becoming clearer every day. Barring something ridiculous happening, he is our guy. If we passed on Barkley then we would need to seriously doubt Chris Ballard's ability to be a GM. I don't think we have that problem though.
  3. Kind of curious what @NewColtsFan thinks of Love's decision to stay in school. He has a better eye on Stanford than most of us. For the record, I almost always (99%) of the time, approve of players staying in school. Got to get that education! Football doesn't last forever.
  4. Clemson might just roll with him as a true freshman. With that returning defense, they could still be in it at the end.
  5. It was sort of surprising. I had not heard anything leading up to the deadline that he was staying. It does make sense though. This draft is top heavy with talent at running back. I had him and Ronald Jones pretty close to each other, and they're similar backs. Jones is a little bigger. I had them both slated in the late first round to early second area, and it was going to be interesting. Not sure what the supply and demand will be there, and one of them could have fallen. It's possibly that Bryce was also informed of this, and maybe it helped him make a decision to stay in school.
  6. The deadline for all college players (or 3-years removed from high school) to declare for the 2018 NFL Draft was yesterday, January 15. The NFL is supposed release this information, and make these declarations official by the 19th. However, with social media, we get an early jump on these things. Take a look at Clemson's front seven. Everyone is coming back. They are going to be unreal. They might even start a true freshman, Trevor Lawrence, at quarterback. We'll need to keep an eye on this cat over the next 3 years. He could be a heck of a player. Austin Bryant, EDGE, Clemson Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson Christian Wilkins, INT-DL, Clemson Kendall Joseph, LB, Clemson Mark Fields, CB, Clemson Mitch Hyatt, OT, Clemson Hunter Renfrow, TE, Clemson A few links worth monitoring over the next few days:
  7. Offseason Mock 2.0

    Barring Marcus Davenport walking the drafts red carpet with a blunt in his mouth, he is going to be off the board in the top 40. Bet your house on it.
  8. I think they're prepared for most situations, especially the most logical. Darnold and Rosen will go off the board quickly, and the Colts will have the rest of the field. Doesn't take even take a nights sleep at a Holiday Inn to figure this much out. You are correct, in that we still have the combine and Pro Days, and so on. However, when Barkley runs a 4.3 then it will only solidify his position. I have been at this draft game for a very long time (over 30 years), and the first 3 picks have never been this clear, especially this early on. That said, trades can change things. It is possible that free agency makes a small impact. Even the bizarre is possible. Rosen could go out on an all-night bender, and do or say something stupid, and become the next YouTube celebrity. Aliens could break their silence and start communicating. Anything is possible. Barring something drastic, I do not see this changing: 1. Sam Darnold 2. Josh Rosen 3. Saquon Barkley Mason Rudolph is the real dark horse. That cat is the real deal, and he might cause a fuss at #3. We will have to do a gut check, and ask if it's worth losing Barkley, to move down and gain a couple of extra picks.
  9. Yeah this is a no-brainer. We would auction the pick to the highest bidder, and kiss our championship rings later.
  10. As we have seen in recent drafts, a lot of movement happens early in the draft. The page below provides a visual for every teams selections, and it totals the value of each pick to create an overall Draft Power number for each team. It also totals how many picks each team has, and when each teams first pick is. Houston and Kansas City are paying the price this year, for moving up last year. Neither team has a first round pick or any Draft Power. Team Draft Picks First Pick Selections Draft Power Cleveland Browns 12 1 1, 4, 33, 35, 62, 65, 97, 119, 129, 150, 161, 193 6,762 New York Giants 7 2 2, 34, 66, 98, 130, 162, 194 3,611 Indianapolis Colts 7 3 3, 36, 67, 100, 131, 164, 195 3,175 New York Jets 7 6 6, 37, 49, 72, 103, 148, 165 2,915 Denver Broncos 9 5 5, 40, 71, 102, 105, 133, 154, 168, 199 2,717 Buffalo Bills 8 21 21, 22, 53, 56, 94, 117, 149, 157 2,535 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 7 7 7, 38, 69, 104, 135, 166, 188 2,431 San Francisco 49ers 9 9 9, 59, 70, 74, 124, 134, 170, 201, 214 2,247 Chicago Bears 7 8 8, 39, 101, 111, 136, 167, 198 2,153 Oakland Raiders 7 10 10, 41, 75, 106, 171, 178, 202 2,141
  11. Not buying it. Barkley is the real deal. He’s coming off the board early.
  12. I think Eli will be a Jaguar next season.
  13. Wilks declines interview, bring on Josh!!

    That would go against everything Ballard said in the season ending press conference. He said they were not focused on an offensive or defensive minded coach. Has something changed?
  14. Agreed. Been mulling it over for a bit, and barring some bizarre event, I do not see how anyone could let Barkley slip past them. This isn't some product of the system back. He is the real deal.
