  1. If they were serious about tanking, or going into a full rebuild, they'd move Keenan Allen. He's going on 28, at the tail end of the age apex for WR's, he doesn't have 2 years for them to get things together. When WR's fall off it's generally really quick, there's very few Larry Fitzgerald's. If I had to guess, I'd say they bring in Brady and go for a ring or two. They already have a stout defense, and the 6th overall pick is a bonafide stud on either side of the ball. They aren't far off.

    That would be pretty much every year.


    I like the Jets to take a big step this coming year honestly, especially if they get Jeudy or Lamb in the 1st. Darnold is still younger than Joe Burrow lol, and he's been in the NFL for 2 whole seasons, the kid is gonna be great when his #1 WR isn't Robby Anderson or Quincy Enunwa. They get Chris Herndon back at TE, add a WR or 2 via the draft, and they have a top half D as is, look out.

    Some of you may not remember but after the season, Reich said despite the outcome that we are real close. I’m paraphrasing now but he said something about being around football all of these years and that we are real close.  I take that to mean we don’t need a new group of superstars to add to the roster ...maybe a couple here and there. 


    What's he supposed to say?


    "Well, with Andrew gone...we're f*cked with a capital F. JB is in the bottom half of the league's game managers, and our only offensive weapon is on the wrong side of the age apex."


    We need a lot to run with the version of KC that won the SB, and that 49ers team blows em out too, probably worse than KC based on key positional advantages. 


    Gotta pray we nail at least 3 (half) of QB, WR, TE, DB, DT, DE in the draft and FA, which means we have a decent chance with the additional draft selection at 34 and the surplus of cap $.

    The Colts couldn't pick in the top-10 this year with Brissett hurt, and falling off a cliff production-wise, so I'm not sure how, with added assets from the draft/FA this year, the Colts finish in the top-10, let alone top-3, next year.


    Who knows? I'm sure everyone had the 49ers penciled in for the SB at this time last year. The parity in the NFL in unrivaled. 

  5. Rivers had a really bad year, and isn't an upgrade on JB at this point in time. They already gave JB an inflated contract, no real need to dump more cap space into another bridge-gap contract. Either A) Take the best QB available at 13, likely Herbert or Love or B) Draft as many pieces as you can for an eventual run when we do land our guy in 2021. It looks like there will be at least 3 high end guys available in Lawrence, Fields, and now Purdy, and with JB at the helm we should likely pick Top 10 again. Go big or go homeless, right?

  6. Idk if he declares or not, but Chuba Hubbard is gonna be legit. Can't believe there's like 5-6 RB's that are all elite-ish, cuz unless you wanna count Jacobs, Monty, and Sanders, there wasn't much there in 2019, as far as RB's go. We have Swift, Taylor, Etienne, Dobbins, Akers, Chuba, and that's probably all I'd put in the elite tier, with Najee Harris and Zach Moss both being right there. Eno Benjamin kinda fell off this year, but he will still be a Nyheim Hines type player, imo.

    Watching more tape and Jordan Love makes more NFL level throws than anyone in this class. His touch is something special. Plus his receivers aren’t always wide open either.


    Yes. His Sophomore film is more indicative of who he is as a quarterback, that team got gutted from last season to this one. All kinds of turnover, from the coaches down to the water cooler guys. People say Mahomes, and I guess there's always a chance, but I believe it to be a really small one. The comp I'd use is Carson Wentz, I think they share a ton of similarities.

    Yes, he has.    One


    Parris Campbell.    Hurt most of this season.    Drafted bottom if the second round this year.    I think pick 59. 

    I’d expect more “skill players” this draft. 


    For sure, I'd think this will largely be an offensive draft. Hard to know tho til all of the FA's land 

  9. Don't like that mock, at all.


    Not necessarily opposed to Herbert at 13, but Gallimore is a one dimensional project that's insanely athletic, I'd go WR there, there's gonna be a ton of WR value on Day 2. 


    AGG is an incredibly good WR, after the combine his stock is gonna take off. I'd imagine he ends up an early Day 3 pick if I had to guess. This draft is so stacked at the skill positions, if you're in need of a WR or RB you're set.

    There is a bit of mock draft "mania" going on where you see a player at a spot again and again......


    Then you kind of mentally "lock it in" as the gospel


    Then on draft day it all changes


    In the past a few of the people on the team I was on would each do a mock draft and input $25 each in the pot.


    Whoever got the most right players to the right team would get the pot  


    It was amazing how few we picked correctly ...... but the people that get PAID to do... also are MOSTLY WRONG!!!


    After embarassing myself on the 2019 draft predictions, I may be lesss specific this year  :)


    My prediction for round ONE...... drum roll..... The Colts will take a PLAYER


    Haha this is so true tho. You can predict it to a degree, but a lot changes.

    I think we could contend for the division if we had a more competent thrower at QB.  But I think both HOU and TENN are getting better, so contending will be tougher.


    And both BALT and KC are way ahead of us in terms of overall roster quality.


    Can't argue with that, KC and BAL are the class of the division.


    I feel like we're a good/great quarterback away from being in that boat. The team should be drastically improved heading into next season with just the 3 selections inside the Top 45, but we obviously have more picks and a good amount of cap space.

    I'm not discrediting him. And it doesn't really matter why he got hurt, the relevant questions are about his ability to be effective moving forward and the likelihood that he'll suffer from lingering effects of the injuries he's already had. 


    You said people are just parroting talking points about his injury history, and that's not true. He's had several injuries that have caused him to miss time in the last two years, and that's a concern for any player going to the NFL. Especially a QB.


    I'm not discrediting him, nor am I writing him off. Just accepting that his injury history is a concern, especially after the hip. 


    He's supposed to be healthy a few weeks before combines and pro days, so we will get to see. Assuming he declares, of course.

    Why is that relevant? Yes, football players get hurt. Tua has had several leg injuries in two years. Do we ignore that?


    My point is that there were going to be medical concerns about Tua before the hip injury. Add in the hip injury, those concerns are greatly magnified.


    Because it's football, and that's what happens? That's the only thing that's relevant in this conversation. Guys get hurt, you can't discredit a high end talent because he got hurt, they essentially all do. Have you looked at why he got hurt? He shouldn't have been playing on the ankle, and had they not forced him back into action, he'd likely be fine atm.
