Sheesh. I thought we'd be done with the fourth by now

LOL told ya... once you get to a certain point, everything is auto-picked pretty much.  I'd say drop it down to 2 horus, but I'd rather be fair to people.  In the grand scheme of things, you're not going to go through that many more picks over the course of a day.  For us to finish this at all, we'd have to have better participation.  I just think that people don't really care about prospects once you get to Day 3 of the draft.

Unless you're a draft junkie, the 3rd day goes by with a meh

I'd say I'm a draft junkie, and by the time the real draft got to the 6th round, I was just burned out.  Tuned in for the Colts and the occasional prospect that intrigued me, and zoned out and did other stuff in the meantime.  It also sucks because at that point, the draft analyst aren't talking about every prospect like they do in the first 2 days.  I remember every time the Colts picked, the analysts discussed someone else.  lol.

We should drop it down to 2 hours. It makes no sense waiting 3 hours for participants who don't plan to make their picks. If a participant has missed multiple picks, then when their turn comes it should be an autopick. Then those of us who want to see this to the end will get to do so. You, CR91, Chad, Jvan, PT, 21isSuperman, Gozer, SaturdayAllDay, Danlhartz, Finball,  I and maybe a couple more can finish this. What do you think?

Sorry, i ninja edited on u

haha I see that. Hopefully, most see 3 hours as too long. 

 

I like Chad's idea for next year. Each person will have a time they are scheduled to pick. It will work the way the NFL has it. If someone misses his/her turn, the next person(s) can make their picks. The GM can make the pick whenever he/she is ready but he/she will have missed their spot in the draft. (Like what happened to the Vikings several years ago)

I received a PM from stitches for the Eagles' pick.

 

144 G  JERMAINE ELUEMUNOR - TEXAS A&M

 

@GOZER on the clock

 

For what it's worth, I'm against making the change to 2 hours instead of three.  If we're gonna do that, I think most people will miss their picks and the rest essentially becomes an autodraft.  Since so many people are missing picks now, and it seems like there is significantly less interest, we could simply end things after the 4th round.  However, if there is significant interest remaining, we could continue until the end of the month.  Thoughts?

    • It's very debatable to say Ebron is a better receiver given his drops and catch rate%. When he came to us, the Colts totally transformed his "use", skewing it to high RZ usage compared to his prior years (look at his RZ target history pre-Colts). Even with his drop rate, he was extremely effective. That said, there's no reason to think we couldn't have had the same RZ success with MAC, or even Doyle. While Ebron is more "dynamic" that Doyle, I wouldn't say he's more dynamic in the catching space than MAC. I'd also say that both Doyle and Ebron have better hands overall by far.    As far as TE usage being down, what I see with the top RZ teams, is that they use more bigs plain and simple than we do in the RZ. And logically, the increased use of nickel should actually add to the mismatch delta between a DB and TE. So not buying that whole line of thought. And just to add, when we did use TEs vs Buffalo, we were highly successful vs the nickel. IMO, you're hanging to much on that article.    As far as our personnel in the RZ, I'd say it's more accurate to say we limit ourselves (use and targets of 6-4 guys).   BTW, I'm not opposed to an alpha WR. They don't grow on trees though. I'd also say that Pittman has a decent chance to grow into one. I'm not a fan of our WR usage over the last couple years at all though. Reich left Luck alone, and let him continue doing what he always did. Since Luck though, way too much musical chairs, and treating a lot of WRs as interchangeable (across positions) instead of scheming to their strengths (like Reid and other coaches do).   Anyway, some WRs can play any position. Some are great as possession guys, some deep, some inside, some outside, etc.. I just think Reich has tried to fit some round objects in square holes, as well as some triangles and stars. In short, even if we did grab a WR early in the draft or a FA, It's not a given to me that they'd be used the right way. I love the way for instance Reid started Hill out at one position, and highlighted his strengths. Never put too much on him early. As he found success, his role expanded, and gradually worked him to a new position with a much more well rounded tree. In contrast, Reich's usage of Cain (not that I'm saying Cain is anywhere near as good as Hill - although Hill was a 5th rounder....) was an extreme head scratcher. Cain was deep guy, and also a motion guy. What did Reich do... He tried to make him a possession guy. It was just never going to work out. 
    • Holding a team to under 30 doesn't quite deserve to be called 'great'. Not that you did but these days many do lol.  Imo, a championship team needs a franchise QB that plays at high level in post season while the Defense isn't porous. A defense that makes you work for what you get against them and capable of making a big play like a sack/interception.   
    • This is going to be one of the easiest cases to make in Hall of Fame history!   1st ballot slam dunk!   What’s the argument against?   Don’t waste your breath.....  
    • I’m all on board with Taylor but this is another reason I am against high draft picks on backs.  In today’s game, you usually have to pass it in the end zone.   Frank is trying to force the run too much in general.  IMO.  Take it when it’s there, but don’t force it.  None of the running teams did well in the playoffs.   Defenses have adjusted.   also you rate MACs ability to get open in tight spaces higher than I do, but I’d like to see them go to him more too.   I just don’t think it would make a major difference.
