  1. Agree with all that...
  2. That's all true...there just isn't anything unorthodox about it across the league. Holes always have to be filled after the draft. No sense in making a move now if you might get 2 starters in the draft.
  3. To the bolded - it absolutely makes sense to go into the draft needing 2 at this stage of free agency. In fact, the interests of the established, but non-premium UFA CBs align perfectly with teams that want to see how a draft rich with secondary talent will play out. Their markets will pick back up after the draft, and they'll have better visibility of the right situation to join rosterwise.
  4. Would love to see Kamara still on the board when we pick in the 2nd.... I think there will still be a higher rated defensive player that slips...but if not, Kamara would be a steal.
  5. I share your admiration for Irsay as an owner, but I can't correlate his greatness with whether or not he chooses to give a second chance to a young man about whom I have very incomplete facts, and about whom I don't know the formation factors that made him volatile at age 18. I have knocked plenty of people off of the pedestal I placed them on...yet found that my own self-righteousness was the determining factor in their relative value. Their flaws were present before and after....
  6. Oh the irony of your actual words....a line without and edge? That's funny stuff. Me thinks you may actually be describing a circle.
  7. Gone are the days where teams don't have cap room for draft picks. TJ Green carried a cap hit of 750K last year as a second rounder. LeRaven Clark was about 630K as a third. The 53rd man on your roster makes at least rookie minimum of 465K. Money isn't the reason the Chiefs wouldn't want 10 picks.
  8. Ahh...the early signs of dissent among the masses. Like a comfy old pair of shoes.
  9. The scheme fit conversation in this thread highlights a common misperception about a rush backer in our defense...and I think, for some, it goes back to Dwight Freeney. Freeney wasn't a poor fit because he couldn't play in space, he fit poorly because he couldn't or wouldn't adapt to playing the run. Playing in space accounts for such a small piece of the role that it wouldn't have hindered Freeney from finishing his career here. But...Freeney was a disaster against the run in 2012. I wouldn't expect Barnett to ever rival Freeney as a pash rusher, but I think he'd bring solid pressure as a rusher and be assignment sound against the run.
  10. I do the same thing...I think its because position letters are abbrevited all caps. EDGE isn't an abbreviation but it signifies you're talking about a position not the word.
  11. Edge rushers like Bowser who have the measurables usually surprise by their draft position, so that seems about right for him. A lot of us are late to catch up to Humphrey as a projected top 15 pick which mirrors Eli Apple at 10 last year. Tomlinson in the 3rd feels like poor value given the CB, Rush, ILB, and RB talent likely on the board in the 3rd. Love the 4th round picks. I'd take all those today and set day 3 out.
  12. Right with you on all that. The draft is no doubt my favorite event all year, including opening day. Nothing impacts winning as much. Takk is a funny example to me of how we all have different hot buttons. Superior athlete, but too many in his situation are missing too much of season one and there are too many other players that can plug and play on defense right now.
  13. Though I compared him to Suggs for a comp....that doesn't mean I think he is a sure thing. I've got exactly the same concerns that you do about his athleticism. Some EDGE players, like Suggs, become studs and others, like Gholston, become busts. The differences are subtle, very specific, and difficult to assess. The only EDGE guys that don't have deficiencies of concern are top 5 picks...they're easy to spot like Garrett is.
  14. If Gore gets 1000, then we probably aren't doing a very good job of preparing for life without him.
  15. Absolutely...but the point is, that you might not have drafted Terrell Suggs on exactly the same concerns.
