Texans discussing a deal with Ricky Wagner. 

Aj Bouye talking with eagles 

Colts and redskins both contacted the Bengals about the 9th pick at the combine. 

 

That's odd.  9th pick is something you usually trade for on draft day.  If you trade up it's usually to draft a specific player and 9 is too far down to know who's going to be available prior to draft day.

I'd rather them not trade up. Picks are too valuable this year imo.

My guess is that they were looking for an asking price for future reference. Seeing how much it would cost them to make the jump come draft day.

I don't even know if these backs would go before Derick Henry. And he was a 2nd rounder.  They are definitely not on Zekes level. 

You really think that little of Fournette? That's just absurd

I don't think any of the backs this year are equal to Zeke's level, so no, I Wouldn't. trade up.

But for a RB like Zeke or a AP. yeah I WOULD,

 

only way I would is if the rest of the roster was relatively set.  otherwise, imo a first round RB is a luxury.

Just my opinion brotha. I don't like his play style at all. I don't even think he'll have an impressive season if he doesn't go somewhere with a great o-line. Henry was also a huge RB, and also ran an impressive 40 for his size.

I'd make a run at Peterson. He'd make around what Gore makes and has more in his tank..

Or Jamaal Charles, if his knees are healed up?

Not sure what to make of this. He's a hardcore Eagles fan, with a good amount of followers. Oh well I'll just leave it here...

 

Interesting. Not a bad pickup at all

(Edit) On second thought, if he's released take a chance on him. I don't want to draft picks.

I seen mychal Kendricks could be cut if he can't be traded I'd love to trade for him it would be cheaper imo but I'd love him here either way

I think getting him after being cut would be cheaper. We'd get to keep our pick, and let our cap guy handle his new contract.

I'd be fine with trading a 5th for him.  He's only 26 and likely better than anyone we'd pick up in the 5th round.

I actually think it'd probably be cheaper to get him in a trade.  Looking at his contract, and considering I dont' think we'd be on the hook for his bonuses, I think he'd be cheaper by trading for him than having to start with a whole new contract.

I can't help but feel the potential Trent Cole level of bust possibility with this guy.

Why would you trade for someone that's going to get released? Fear of someone else scooping him up first?

 

I wouldn't?

cole was a very different situation.  He was past his prime on the downside of his career. He was signed hoping there was still a little gas left in the tank but he didn't.  Kendricks is in just hitting his prime.

He will get more tho as a free agent then his current deal 

 

 

I don't know if he would. Draft is deep with LBs, and he's had a rough go of it the past few years. He only started 8 of the 15 games that he played for Philly last year, and has never had a full 16 game season. He makes Dwayne Allen look like the perfect bill of health.

I think he'd get more as a FA.

 

He's got 3 years and 18 million on his current deal.    So, we get that and don't have to give hm a signing bonus.

 

I think Ballard might not want to get into a bidding war for Kendricks.     A 5 isn't a big offer.     Fair exchange.

Kendricks is 26.    Cole was 32.

 

Huge difference.

I'm surprised at how many people would like this signing. I was fully prepared to get blasted for sharing that tweet in here.

Is it?  With Inside LBs?  I've only heard 3 or 4 names commonly brought up in terms of quality ILBs in this draft.

I've said all of season I'd trade for him very underrated ILB getting him back into a 3-4 will be great too. At first thought it woukd take a 4th but I'd do a 5th all day everyday

    • With no TEs under contract beyond the 2019 season, TE is most definitely a need, albeit more of an under the radar need than a glaring one. But if a guy like Hockensen is there, & all of the DL/EDGE guys that the Colts have 1st round grades on are gone, then I have zero issues taking a TE.
    • I don't like how any of the available simulators do it. They all use a single board for all teams and as we know this is not how the draft works... different teams have different boards and they draft by them while factoring in needs to some extent.    I wanted to make a different type of simulator myself, but didn't have the time this year. I think I will make one for next year and I will take different boards and assign them to different teams and this way you could get more representative way of how the draft would unfold. Ideally you would have some approximation for a board for all different teams. For example, if you know that a team runs zone blocking scheme predominantly you bump up all zone blocking OLinemen and you drop all the power blocking OLinement for this team's specific board... If they run press-man defense you bump up the best press-corners and you drop all the off-man zone corners for this team's specific board.. .etc. You get the idea. Get somewhat personalized boards for every team depending on what they run and how they play.   It won't be perfect but I feel like it might give you better idea of how teams would draft and IMO it will give you better prediction of what the chance is that certain players drop to certain positions. 
    • Understandable, but yeah. I have no college team rooting interest in this one. I just like Tillery better. (on the field that is... Wilkins seems to be drawing rave reviews about his off-field/leadership/character stuff, while like we discussed earlier Tillery is drawing some questions about being too well-rounded outside of football... I don't know how to evaluate those and I haven't talked to them so... I defer to who I like on the field and leave the character evaluation to the pros(Ballard and the Colts FO))
    • I don't know how to do it, but I'm pretty sure they can create an aggregate big board with a bunch of different boards, mocks, variables, etc., and track the trends from that board as the draft unfurls. TDN has a predictive big board that their mock machine is based on. It can't be that hard.
