  1. Injuries are just part of it. At Texas he'd flash (for a play or sometimes even a quarter) and then be terrible for weeks. He just has a huge problem being consistent and it doesn't help that he's oft injured which resets it every time.
  2. You are mistakingly treating all drafts the same. This draft has a lot of really good talent in the second and third rounds why not take advantage of the strength of the draft? Last year the talent was much more normal and spread out which is the reason we came away with good finds. Every draft is different. Either way it's unrealistic to say he's going to trade all 3 latter picks to get back into the 2nd and 3rd round. But it wouldn't surprise me if our first became an additional second and third or our fourth became an additional third in some capacity. No matter what we should have a good haul.
  3. Don't put any faith on Johnson. He's been promising and then dissappointing since college and hasn't done anything to change that.
  4. To me this is not the draft that the colts need to pick up an immediate starter. This is the draft to fill out the team with great talent in the 2nd 3rd and 4th string players. You stay put where you are at with your first three picks and use your 5th 6th and 7th rounder to get back into the second and third rounds. Grab some Dlinemen receivers and some safeties and let them compete. If we are cutting 4th round picks that means the entire team's talent level is rising and that's excellent. This is the type of draft you can start a dynasty with if you play your cards right.
  5. AJ Brown and N'Keal Harry are a cut above the rest as of now. Both have potential to grow. I'd say they are the highest percentage bets.
  6. Eh... I'll agree to disagree here. He doesn't have golden hands but they aren't terrible...
  7. ??? Sorry I'm not following you. What explains the Isabella pick? My evaluation of running backs? Again I'm confused (apologies) I'm not saying where I think these players will be drafted. I shared with NCF how different my evaluations are in comparison to most of the draft analysts out there...
  8. This interesting but mainly because I actually agree to a point. Running backs are lack luster in this draft no doubt. I wouldn't touch the position until the third round based on talent alone. Second I can't remember a year where I was so far off on my personal evaluations than the rest of the NFL analysts (even the ones I like and respect)... The only first round receivers on my boards are AJ Brown and N'Keal Harry. Butler is a fringe first round. Metcalf to me is a low second rounder (literally only because of his freakish measurables) and M Brown is a third almost 4th round pick. Paris Cambell is literally almost twice the receiver M Brown is and it isnt even close. This receiver class is loaded but for some reason people are looking at all of the wrong receivers (imo of course). I'd take Isabella and Samuels before I even thought about taking Metcalf and M Brown... Either way interesting read definitely!
  9. No I would not trade draft capital in the first round to draft a second round receiver.
  10. This interesting. I see him as a strong side Defensive End. I don't think he has the awareness in space to play off and he doesn't have natural bend nor step to compete with Left Tackles. He's got a high ceiling as a strong side guy but I'm not sure I'd spend a first on a guy I'm probably not putting on the weak side. I'm a * poor evaluator of edge rushers though (my hit rate has to be below 40% lol) so who knows.
  11. I've never hated Metcalf and I hope he succeeds but I find myself questioning why spend a first round pick on a proven one trick pony? It would be different if he had amazing hands and a system that showed he could do more than what he showed but the facts are he doesn't and he didn't. Imo if I'm a GM I'm in the business of finding dynamic players based on factual evidence with talent and production. I'm not a fortune teller... But it is true you could gamble on this guy and strike gold. I'd just say if my job depended on it I would take Butler Brown or Neal before I'd take Metcalf. Either way I hope he does big things in this league because he seems like a good kid (just not with an AFC team please).
  12. Who wouldn't want AB?... Hmm let's see 30 of the 32 teams that refused to give up a first for him might have a say. Or maybe the 29 of 32 teams that were unwilling to also give him a contract. Oh and of course the team trying to trade him... AB is a cancer. He may have been fueled by Ben but there's no denying he's a cancer and no one pays top dollar for cancer except the dunces. "Que Raiders signing announcement"
  13. If only McCoy was 4 years younger and Josh Allen could throw more than 30% of NFL throws they'd be super bowl favorites. Let's hope AB is happy there where Allen will over/under throw him by a mile... Lol
  14. Great write up! I like Butler alot. I don't think he's the best receiver in this draft but I have him highly rated. I'm down on Metcalf. I tried liking him. Heck even his combine measurables were eye popping but no matter what I do I just don't see nor feel an NFL quality receiver. I'm a huge fan of Brown and Harry though. Imo they are 1A and 1B in this draft.
  15. Yet again we find ourselves in complete agreement. Harry is my favorite receiver prospect in this draft. He's going to surprise people. He wasn't used properly in AZ State and still succeeded. Imo he and Brown are the 2 best receivers in this draft. And it isn't really close. Those are my only 2 receivers that I have a first round grade with Butler a fringe first/second.
  16. Resign Inman and draft Humphries or Harry. Sit back and enjoy.
  17. I'm super lucky. The kids parents aren't bad (not perfect but no where near the horror stories I hear from other coaches in my area. Many quit after one or 2 years. I think my biggest qualm is if they are going to choose another sport every season because in my area softball is King...
  18. How does it feel to step away from youth coaching? I'm dreading that day I enjoy it way too much. I've been coaching youth soccer for the past 8 years. I have a U11G team that feels like I have 11 daughters lol. I've found that if you gather bunch of good kids with the desire to play that no matter their talent level they can succeed. I think that's one of the biggest joys for me is developing then into what they can be.
  19. What would that argument be? Honest curiosity.
  20. Whoa.... Someone who pays attention... Thank you for typing a paragraph I didn't have to lol.
  21. I have a feeling that if we ever meet in real life we would get along just fine lol. Of course we could never talk college football lol!
  22. We stopped them the entire 3rd quarter... The defense played great relative to the opponent and did their job the entire second half. That was mostly because Leonard decided to start playing the game instead of running himself out of it. Literally 3 straight plays were made off Leonard within the first 5 minutes of the game. The theme continued until the second half where he started playing much more disciplined which in turn made the defense actually work again.
  23. 1. Agreed. 2. Agree somewhat. I'll touch on this later. 3. Disagree. We needed to empower the line and you don't do that by playing into the fact that they are teeing off. Once luck had a batted pass they should have ran about 4 straight and let luck try and draw them offside. 4. Agreed. Anyone who thinks Reich needs to go is rediculous and full of emotion (of course I was that way too so I understand lol). 5. Yes he was. My goodness was that embarrassing. I'm not sure I hold the optimism you do as this may be what we deal with from here on out. But the degradation of the arm was apparent. 6. No. Ballard will stay the course. But don't be shocked if we take a receiver in the first. It will be great value with how the draft is starting to line up. 7. Agreed. I just wish the team looked even remotely like the team I watched this year. Then the game wouldn't have stung so bad. My biggest issue with the game was that our best players on both sides of the ball looked terrible and the team felt it. The defense started actually playing lights out when Leonard finally settled down which is understandable for him as a rookie but to have luck be the same and at no point did he really recover was severely dissappointing. Either way I'm excited for the future but cautious on the quality of luck going forward for an entire season.
