  1. Or we could stay at 1 and take Ed Oliver out of Houston
  2. I had never heard Eberflus' name before this, but here's a pretty good article about him from the Cowboys SB Nation blog: https://www.bloggingtheboys.com/2017/12/28/16822706/is-the-dallas-cowboys-most-important-free-agent-matt-eberflus
  3. I don't think anyone has mentioned this, but in case you weren't aware, Gabe Jackson signed an extension last offseason to keep him under contract until after the 2022 season.
  4. I believe Ballard said in the press conference today that they would make decisions on assistants after the new head coach is hired. So it's possible that some coaches would be retained. I'd consider Mathis among the most likely to be brought back, along with Schottenheimer as QB coach and McMahon as special teams coordinator.
  5. As another Iowa fan, I don't understand this at all. Ignoring how little sense this line of thinking makes in general, Desmond King is currently PFF's 8th best rookie (at all positions) and their 12th best CB. And Josh Jackson has a skillset that projects much better to the NFL than King's did. So the most recent shutdown Iowa corner directly contradicts this idea.
  6. I really don't see any way Gordon hits the open market. He's an ERFA, so if the Browns want him back they can tender him and he doesn't have the option to go anywhere next year. And there's no reason for the Browns to not do that. Their WR corps is awful, and he's clearly the best WR they have, so I'd imagine they'll jump on the chance to bring him back on the cheap.
  7. He's basically Reggie Bush. He's a great change of pace back, and has fantastic hands out of the backfield, but he is in no way, shape, or form worth a top 10 draft pick. He plays pretty much the same role as Tarik Cohen (although the Panthers are much more consistent in getting McCaffrey touches), and Cohen went in the fourth round. If my options are McCaffrey with a top 10 pick, or Cohen 111 picks later, I'm taking Cohen every single time.
  8. Agreed, but just to nitpick, with what I bolded, you are underselling Castonzo big time. The last time I checked, PFF had him as the second best run blocking tackle in the entire league. That's not "solid," that's elite.
  9. Here's a sort of dream team (for me at least) that also seems like it could be somewhat realistic: HC- Matt Nagy OC- one of the Chiefs offensive assistants, either their QB coach or one of their offensive quality control guys (I'm not gonna be picky here, we'll be running Nagy's offense, so whoever he likes the most) DC- Vic Fangio (assuming the Bears clean house and he's available)
  10. As an Iowan, I've watched a lot of Allen Lazard from Iowa State, and I think he's a perfect fit as a developmental mid round pick. He's built a bit like Mike Evans, and he's a really good red zone threat. Put him in a WR corps with Hilton, Landry/Robinson/Watkins, and Rogers and I think you've got a really good group of guys that complement each other really well.
  11. I'd consider spending a 6th or 7th rounder on one if they're BPA, but other than that it's not a position I'd consider drafting this year. Doyle is one of the better starting TEs in the league, and I thought Swoope was poised for a big breakout season as the #2 this year, which obviously didn't happen due to injury. I'd give Swoope another chance in '18 to see if he can cut it in an expanded role, and based on last Thursday, I think Travis could be a solid #3. Bring in some competition for the third spot, but other than that I think TE is one of the rare spots on this roster (especially the of
  12. My pipe dream for our DC is Vic Fangio from the Bears. He's done pretty well everywhere he's been, and runs a system similar to our current one.
  13. Good to see us getting someone from that stout Seahawks offensive line
  14. We're also one blown halftime lead from tying the all-time record for a single season. So, that's two things we're leading the league in
  15. I voted Landry, but I'd be very happy with Robinson or Watkins. If we went with Landry, I'd definitely look at a middle round, big-bodied WR like Allen Lazard out of Iowa State, since I feel like these days you really need to have one of those physical red zone threat types. Robinson and Watkins are a bit bigger, so I'd be a lot less picky on who we draft in that case, and would even be completely fine with Rogers as our #3 and drafting a return specialist to round out the depth chart at WR (I'm fine with Rogers as a returner otherwise, but I'd love to have an electric returner that's a threat
