With the 39 pick in the 2016 NFL draft the Carolina Panthers select WR  JOSH DOCTSON - TCU

 

I still feel like they need to upgrade their WR core even with Benjamin coming back 

 

Two of my favorite players have been poached from my personal Big Board. :tvsmash:

LOL!   Ooooops, sorry.  This illustrates exactly what a GM goes through.  And why if as a GM, you, your scout team, and coaches agree on a 'specific guy' that fits, you go get that guy.  If it seems plausible he wont make it to you in a particular round, then you trade up, or you select him a round earlier.  Otherwise, you take your chances. Sorry it didn't work out this time. :Cry:

haha You will get criticism from the BPA supporters. Be careful. 

 

I think I selected a good player in Sheldon Rankins. I moved up 3 spots to get him. I gave up my #23 pick and my 3rd rd pick for #20and the Jets 4th-round pick. At #20 Rankins has a lot more value than Doctson. There are other receivers that I can take in later rounds.

 

You should have participated in this.

I see where you are coming from. OTOH...

 

If you are waiting for Doctson to fall to an area, and you have traded up for others in earlier rounds, he wasn't really BPA at those earlier slots and you shouldn't be upset if someone values him more and he goes off the board before your next normal selection.  Some other team might have him BPA and at an earlier pick.  That's the risk. If he is really worth making your roster, and the coaches want 'him' over other similar guys, you've essentially created him being BPA and will likely have to trade up again to get to a place to take the guy, or risk a chance with him not sliding past other teams.  He didn't. That is what I'm getting at.  Since he is gone, now you hope another target at Need list and your BPA Big Board somewhat closely match at your next selection. If they do not, that is where the BPA vs. Need decision comes into play.  And that is where how big a grade variance between the two is an issue... or not. So best of luck to you in this.  Hope it works out from here.

 

My schedule may not permit me to be as prompt at signing on at times these days.  So I declined to join with the possibility to not be able to fulfill my responsibilities if I did.

I get that. I just carry my mobile phone and check in every now and then to make sure I'm not the next person up. I don't want to make others wait.

Yeah I wouldn't take him a round early. I'd move up or back, depending. I liked your move for Rankins.

I was not really upset. Lol.

 

I preferred to trade back to get Doctson but I could not find a trade partner. I did not believe he was worth it at #23. While I like him, he is not so much better than some of the other WRs who are still on the board. So yeah, he was not  BPA. There are two other WRs that I like but if there is another player with higher value at another position, I will consider taking that player.

The Bears sent Martellus Bennett away this year. In the 2nd round they draft the consensus top rated tight end in hopes of replacing some of his production.

 

The Bears select Hunter Henry, Tight End out of Arkansas. 

 

That is an excellent pick, IMO. I really like him.

I like what she did too, but you can;t have them all. There are 31 other teams out there.  So if you want a guy get the guy.  {she did, Kudos} If you want another guy and wait for him, and he gets taken, then you compare what it would have cost to get him vs. the pick your are left with taking.  She may well find that she may have lost a couple targeted guys, that maybe it all turned out not so poorly after all.  But then again... well, let's not go there.  ;-)

Yeah you'll really like a lot of guys. Can't have them all, and whatever you do, you're sacrificing your chance to get someone. Everybody knows I like Doctson, but between him and Rankins, it's not a hard decision to make. She had already moved up for Rankins (and if not I'd have taken him), it's hard to move up again in the next round.

My pick at #54 was going to be Hunter Henry. I like him very much. I had my reasoning all written up and was going to copy and paste it here. I did not expect anyone to take him. It makes a lot of sense for the Bears.

I'm going to make the picks that I would for the Titans that they would have if this were started after the trade. They're not official, just what I would do with the current selections available for TN.

When is @Archer's time up? I believe he has one more hour.

 

The Colts pick will be next. If Archer and JP do not make picks, Will Fuller will be the Indy pick in the second round. I wonder if the members here would find it "unreasonable" to draft another WR and select someone else?

With the 47th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the NO Saints select Kenny Clark, DT, UCLA.  @jpfolks and the Indianapolis Colts are on the clock.

I had to read quickly to try to determine who was on the board still, and I read a bogus Chris Jones drafting (that was a pretty good joke).  Anyway, if possible I'd like to change #47 to Chris Jones, if possible.  If not, Clark remains the pick.

Yeah,   his bogus picks should be removed to avoid confusion

Personally, I'd leave it the way you have it.  I think Clark is the better prospect of the two anyway.

    • The covid IR rules are helping this team a ton. Imagine if they were the old IR rules. We would of had to cut some players because guys like Burton would not of went on IR. I hope they keep some of these rules because teams can keep more of their players instead of having to cut them.
    • Yep. He was loved by every analyst too as a single high FS, and looked good his first year with the Colts. He'll be a bargain for someone IMO if he can stay healthy.    What's also weird though, is that Flus hinted that he wanted to play more man last year. Aside from the KC game, didn't seem like it happened much. And we drafted both Rock and Blackmon from heavy man systems. I think Willis was too. I just don't understand to be honest what Flus is really all about yes. Was he waiting to get a 3T and pressure up front to go more man? He has that now. And if not, not sure I understand Ballard's draft choices as they seem to be converse to Flus's scheme.
    • With his injury history, I doubt there are going to be many teams out there offering to dish out money like he'd be a guaranteed starter, and I would doubt many teams are going to be throwing long-term deals at him.  He has to prove he can stay healthy for a 16 game season, something he hasn't done in 4 years (7 games, 14 games, 13 games, <2 games).     So, it wouldn't be too surprising (IMO) if Ballard offered him a 1 year deal with a low guarantee and some incentives built in... but he probably knows he's a better fit in a different scheme and can get a similar deal elsewhere where he's more suited to play.     It will be interesting... if JT/Wilkins/Hines prove they're a formidable trio, where would Mack fit in the puzzle if he came back to Indy next year... I'd think he'd be able to go elsewhere, get offered more $ and have a better chance to get more carries.  I could be wrong, but my sense is that JT is going to establish himself a true #1 RB in this league before this year ends.  I understand his wear may be an issue considering how many miles he put on in college, but so far (in limited time) Wilkins has shown he can be a solid supplement to him.  Mack has already shown the league he can be an upper-level back in the NFL, so I don't think he'll have too much trouble finding $ if he is passing all his physicals and looking good in his workouts.     TJ Green or Laron Landry... I don't think Hooker is even close to either of those guys.  Hooker produced in college, he was producing very well (being talked about DROY) as a rookie before he got hurt.  He hasn't been a bad football player here.  He doesn't get thrown at much.  He's playing a scheme that isn't entirely suited to his skill set... but he has shown he can play.  TJ Green was a raw guy who didn't produce near the level as Hooker did in college and never showed anything in the NFL (another Grigs bust) and Landry was a roided out freak who was shown the door by the league because he couldn't pass PED tests.   Hooker, if he can stay healthy, can play in this league.  That is his major concern, is his health... he is an above average football player who could be very good if he's in the right system.     Yes, that was a weird scenario all around.  Ballard, keep in mind, didn't get to choose his coach.  He was basically stuck with Pagano.  Ballard knew what scheme he wanted to run on D, which was different than Pagano.  Pagano was talking about Hooker as 'the next Ed Reed' (who played under Pagano when he was a DC in Baltimore).  Hooker really fit the Pagano mold.  I would not be shocked, if Pagano is still in a defensive coordinator position going into next year that Hooker went to whatever team Pagano was affiliated with, TBH.  
    • Agreed.  He came to the Colts to play with Luck, make a lot of stats, win a lot of games, and make a lot of money.  When Luck quit, and he had to play with Brissett, none of those things were going to happen anymore, and he knew it.  The light just went out of his eyes, and he didn't really care to be here anymore.
    • I can absolutely see the loss costing us positioning in the playoffs. Hopefully it was just rust (execution and game plan) and we'll start to roll. There really is no making up for a loss to a team ranked 32nd (at the time). It is what it is, and you just got to move on. Perhaps beating TN on the road might make up for, but honestly TN doesn't look all that great right now, and I already thought we'd fair well against them.   As far as the whole O vs D thing, simply put, they are symbiotic. A good D helps the offense by giving them opportunity and field position. A good O helps the D by keeping them off the field.
