  1. Yeah, I agree with that. See my post, #16 above. He's more explosive than Smith, IMO. He may not be as natural a pass rusher as Marcus Smith, but he is still good at it, especially as a stand up edge rusher. To me, if Smith projects as a better pass rusher, it's not by much. The problem with both guys is that they have physical limitations resulting in them having trouble getting off blocks. One area that I will take Bradford over Smith anyday is defending the run. He seldom gets blown off the ball, solid instincts, and has a nose for the ball. He's not great in coverage, but if he
  2. Yeah, in that event, go with your gut. Like I said initially, it's your mock. If you like Martin, by all means, pick him. I mean, in the end, it's all just for fun. But as far as BPA available, you're talking about a handful of guys - Martin, Brooks, Ward, Attaochu - that are all ranked around the same area. So if you really can't decide who you like best, you're probably doing somethign right. Problem with that is though, no matter who you pick, you're going to love and regret it at the same time.
  3. Yeah, anything is possible and that would make a lot of sense. One way or the other, I'm not the least bit concerned about Luck's connection with this guy. Could be a family friend for all we know.
  4. Hey people, let's relax a little bit. The OP met this hypnotist at a prom. Meaning, this hypnotist probably travels and works at fairs or whatnot. I'm willing to bet, if Andrew Luck met this guy, it was probably just a for "its and giggles," 1 dollar, let's see what happens ordeal. No different than visiting a fortune teller at a theme park.
  5. The tag is just a one year deal that works like a franchise tag in the sense that salary is set for the year and that's it. Other teams can make offers. It doesnt' matter how big or small the offer is and any offer made is irrespective of the amount of the tender. All that matters is, if a different team makes an offer to Mack, adn Mack accepts it, the Browns will have the opportunity to match it. If it's matched, Browns retain him. If the Browns don't match it, then Mack goes to the other team (or maybe its' the other way around - team makes offer, browns match, and then mack can either
  6. I'm on and off about Bitino. Some days I like him, some days I don't. I think of the 4 mentioned int eh article, he'd be my last choice.
  7. Brooks is a 2nd-3rd round pick absent some self-implosion that will kill his stock, so there's a decent chance he'll be available. As for Martin, I get where you're coming from and I don't think it's a bad idea. It's a perfectly fine idea, I just don't believe that's the direction the Colts will go. But I mean, what they would do and what we would do are often two different things. I mean, in Dustin/Chad's Friday mock, I took Dakota Dozier in the 3rd, so...I'm obviously not against drafting an OL early in the draft lol. I just don't know if I'd use our 2nd round pick for it, that's all.
  8. Oh, I was simply stating that some of the guys I listed, I would prefer to Ward or Martin. For instance, I'd take Attachou over Martin and I'd take Brooks over Ward, but they are all good picks. To me Ward is ranked higher than Brooks on many websites and some say he is the best cover safety in the draft, even as a SS. I just personally likes Brooks a bit better (love his physicality, comparable cover skills, not as good of hands but that's coachable and at least you get the benefit of a deflected pass). But you couldn' go wrong with either one. As far as Martin, I like Martin better for
  9. he did say that. But just because grigs doesnt like starting OL in their first year doesnt mean hes not good enough to start
  10. Agree about the C position. I still think there's a solid chance we try to improve at the G position, just not if there is a really good defensive player available. It depends on how the Colts have constructed their draft board. If there's a G available in the 3rd they rank as 80th overall and a DT they rank as 83rd...I could see us taking the G. Thorton, as our RG, isn't exactly the strongest OL...so I could see us looking to draft a player that could replace him. That being said, it's not the most immediate need. Just depends on who's available and how we have devised our list of BPA.
  11. More and more people seem to think he'll go in the 4th or sooner...I really liked him as a 5th round CB for the Colts if we didn't get a guy like McGill in the 3rd. Thankfully this class is deep in CB, so there's some other guys I like that would be late round steals like Aaron Colvin.
  12. The only bad thing about that website is the trades. Very unrealistic. But find one of those "value draft charts" (just google it) and pick a trade that fits the chart and it's a decent mock draft tool. They have a somewhat decent prospect grading. The other thing I dont' really like about the website is I think it drafts based on need moreso than it does BPA. There's times where teams will reach REALLY bad just so they fill a need, when there's other players that would better suit a secondary need. But no mock draft is perfect, so it stands to reason no computerized mock draft tool will
  13. A reasonable draft. I think Pierre would go before we had a shot to draft him in the 3rd, but I would be pretty pleased with this draft. But good news for us is, there's some other CBs that would likely be comparable and available with the 90th overall. Guys like Keith McGill, Brashaud Breeland, Phillip Gaines (not sure if Gaines is a 3rd rounder, but I wouldn't be terribly disappointed with the pick) all could be available and worth the 90th overall.
  14. A lot of people have Dion Baily going higher than the 3rd, I don't think he's draftable until the 4th or 5th.
  15. He's good enough to start, and be a very good starting OG. With Castanzo, Thomas, Holmes, Dozier, Cherilus, that has the potential to be a very, very good OL. Castanzo would be the weakest link IMO if all panned out like I think it could.
  16. It didn't help that we added in a 5th guy and then replaced Dustin. Not that we shouldn't have changed anything, I very much preferred to have more people. It's more fun that way. But it just goes to show how it could affect consistency. But I do agree it generally turned out good. There was a couple of picks that surpised me when they got drafted like Seantrel Henderson in the 2nd. But just because it is a surpise to me doesnt' mean its' impossible on draft day. I eman, Dallas took that C in the late first and look how it turned out for them. I'm curious who the will be the surprise r
  17. When I did it, some of the mock didn't make a lot of sense, i.e. Arizona took two CBs in the first two rounds. Patriots took 3 defensive lineman with their first 3 picks. Stuff like that. I liked our draft. The Texans might have gotten the most out of this draft with 3 potentially elite players, 2 of which are arguably at the 2 most important positions in the game (QB and DE). Obviously it depends on how quickly the prospects develop and become acclimated to the speed fo the NFL, but I think the Falcons might have made their roster superbowl worthy this year with some of the additions th
  18. Thought it would be fun to list by team the drafted players. I put each in order of when they were drafted, not necessarily by the round they were drafted in. Arizona Cardinals CB Bradley Roby CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste DT Caraun ReidAtlanta Falcons LB Khalil Mack CB Marcus Roberson DT Kelcy QuarlesBaltimore Ravens OT Zach Martin SS Deonne Buchannon SS Craig Loston C Travis SwansonBuffalo Bills LB Anthony Barr OT Morgan Moses TE Troy NiklasCarolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin FS Marqueston Huff OT James HurstChicago Bears FS Ha’sean Clinton-Dix CB LaMarcus Joyner DT Daquan JonesCincinnati Ben

  20. Good times everyone. Had a lot of fun. I gotta say,Houston made out like a fat cow.
  21. Green Bay selects, with the 98th pick, ILB Chris Borland.
  22. Peyton with a 6-5 WR redzone target....holy nuts...I'd be surprised if he didn't have 30 redzone TDs lol
  23. With the 94th pick overall, the overly chill San Fran selects, DT Anthony Johnson
