    Strategically, it will be interesting.  Yes, there are phantom calls, but on the flip side, PI could also be called on so many more plays than it is.  Final two minutes of the half - throw it 50 yards down the field repeatedly.  They have to review every play.  Good chance you'll get something.

    You just nailed how most of next season will pay out.


    Hopefully booth doesn't look to call every ticky-tack PI.

    If Kelley performs at an All-Pro Level next year, he will likely set the market for centers, $14-$15 million a year IMO. If we could get him extended for $10-$11 mill per year now why wouldn't we??

    Especially if we could start the extension after next season. 

    Not with his significant injury history. He only played a full season his rookie year.

    as is your right.. 


    baker is dropping though. rotoworld and a few other sites reported the flags. and... i can tell you he absolutely has a rep at UGA. and it's very hard to get a rep at UGA.... lol.


    wanna maker a wager about greedy being available at 26?

    Read that again, I think you misunderstood lol

    i'd bet a good amount of cash that Williams is not there. 


    baker is dropping fast due to combine flags per several stories i've seen. had some very bad interviews with multiple teams. didn't have the best rep at UGA (I'm in ATL and hear all the Dwag crap constantly). not sure he would be a Ballard guy.


    even without the baker flags, i'd still take Tillery. the difference is ratings is very small. and he is absolutely the kind of kid you want in the locker room. i could easily see him coaching some day if not running for office lol. he was student body president at ND. and i love his position flexibility and rare height and radius for a DL.

    I disagree with none of that

    Jeffrey Simmons - DT: 6.67

    Greedy Williams - DB: 6.21

    Marquise Brown - WR: 6.18

    DeAndre Baker - DB: 6.15

    A.J Brown - WR: 6.08

    Jerry Tillery - DT: 6.03

    Devon Bush - ILB.  5.99

    Byron Murphy - DB: 5.95

    Jachai Polite - OLB: 5.91





    Of the players I named, I added their ratings above. If they are all available, I would pick one of the two DBs (Williams or Baker) over Simmons..

    from a pure ratings perspective, it's much more likely to a higher rated DT available than a S. Most mocks have Tillery, Lawrence, and Wilkens being available in that 25-32 space. All three of those are 6.0+ rated guys. I know NFL.com ratings aren't perfect, but they are a good guide, and better than most.


    In terms of S, there are zero Ss rated above 5.91 this year. Very meh class in terms of top talent. But a great class in terms of "good" depth. There are 15 guys in that same tier (5.5-5.99). I'd rather get a guy like Thornhill, CG-J, or Hooker who are 5.7-5.9 later. I like Thornhill better than the guys in the 5.9 range anyway. But those three can be taken late 2nd, maybe 3rd.


    CBs, a few top guys, but they will be gone. The ones available will be rated the same or below the DTs available.

    I'm sticking with what Ballard is shoveling.  He has said you win up front in this league, and I don't think he's done on either side yet.  Before yesterday, I WOULD have said DE or pass rushing LB.  Now, I say he goes DT or OT.  My gut says he'll have more value at DT since there are more of those top guys available.  The Colts scouts reportedly had interest in Dexter Lawrence at his pro day.  He is reported to maybe be available where the Colts pick.  That would be my favorite at this point.  If not him then Tillery from ND.


    All of a sudden this defense could be pretty darn good.

    Lawrence could make it to the second round for us. There may be better available, but after the first 9 or 10 are gone its a toss up. I do believe that many D line will be gone by that time, which leads me to picking up a top DB instead of a mid tier DL.

  7. There will be better DBs at our position than D linemen. The good DBs are going to drop due to the the amount if D line that are going early. So essentially we can get the 3rd best DB while it might be the 12th best D line available. The DBs, possibly WR, will be the BPA not D line.


    People likely available at 26th


    Devon Bush - ILB

    Greedy Williams - DB

    DeAndre Baker - DB

    Byron Murphy - DB

    Marquisr Brown - WR

    Jerry Tillery - DT

    Jachai Polite - OLB

    Jeffrey Simmons - DT

    A.J Brown - WR

    If Brissett was thought of as a winning QB throughout the league then why hasn't Ballard had one team interested?

    I believe Ballard has said teams were interested. But he said he would send him to any team. Furthermore, does ballard come across as a guy who announces every little detail about who is interested in whom?

    Brissett is 5-12 as a starter and only has 1 year left on is contract.

    I highly doubt any team considers Brissett a quality starter and any team would give up anything better than a 3rd round pick for a one year rental.

    The record is not a direct reflection of his skill, it is that of the team.


    Blake bortles is not a 10-6 QB, Tony Romo was not an 8-8 QB, Trent Dilfer was not a SB winning calibre QB.

    Wanting and getting are two different things.

    What makes you think he is worth more than a 3rd in todays market?

    He's shown he can be a quality starter, experience, and is young. This draft lacks true starting QBs. There are still a half a dozen teams in need. A second is not a stretch. Maybe a high third.

    I'll predict Brissett to the Giants for a 3rd round pick. They got an extra 3rd in the Beckham trade, and the Giants have Eli at QB and aren't interested in Haskins. Also think the Cardinals take Murray before them. Perfect match for Brissett. Predicting it now!

    Want more than a third for Brissett.

    that's one more person than our entire line. 


    you're ignoring the fact that any QB who dances around and holds the ball longer is going to take more hits, and get pressured more. that is logic 101. he did that in college, and he still does it. 

    You don't say?! 


    However many of his pressures were due to his interior line and not him holding it. 


    His interior line graded average to start the season: https://chiefswire.usatoday.com/2018/07/17/pff-chiefs-offensive-line-ranks-in-the-middle-of-the-nfl-for-2018/

    We (you and I) dont know WHAT was offered as a trade up 


    It appears a call to trade from our spot DID occur to Denver


    Maybe it was a player, maybe it was a future draft pick, maybe it was a combination of choices


    Neither one of us will EVER know.......  Speculation is just that

    The difference?


    2 EXTREMELY VALUABLE second round picks from the Jets


    If the call to Denver didnt happen......


    and the response was VERY specific, which if you notice, CB didnt deny, 


    This is a trade option..... probably not going to happen


    CB has stopped calling me for advice


    But this OLD Texan would be cheering it!

    That makes no sense. We trade back with the jets only to give them to the Broncos? We would have dropped two spots and gained nothing.
