I was way off.  I though the Ravens were involved.  It was Jacksonville and Carolina that jumped them

The Vikings were forced on Saturday to make a rare "pass" on their first-round choice, the seventh pick overall, when they were unable to complete a proposed trade with the Baltimore Ravens before the 15-minute time limit lapsed. By taking a "pass," the Vikings delayed their choice, but were permitted to then make it at any ensuing time. But in frenzied flury in the minutes immediately following the Minnesota move, Jacksonville, choosing No. 8 overall, rushed in its card to pick quarterback Byron Leftwich. In lightning time after that, Carolina jumped in to choose offensive tackle Jordon Gross. Minnesota finally exercised its pick at the No. 9 slot, selecting defensive tackle Kevin Williams, one of the fastest-rising players in the lottery.

Yeah.  I don't know who the Vikings wanted initially,  But they certainly got the best player of those three

About 35 mins left.  What would the consensus top pick be?

 

30 EDGE  TIM WILLIAMS - ALABAMA
36 CB  QUINCY WILSON - FLORIDA
39 S  MARCUS WILLIAMS - UTAH
40 G  DAN FEENEY - INDIANA

 

I'm thinking Williams since he's the top ranked guy, or Feeney since they lost Zeitler?

With the 42nd pick, The New Orleans Saints select

 

Budda Baker, FS, Washington

 

@WarGhost21 and The Philadelphia Eagles are on the clock

 

Saints have Haason Reddick, Malcolm Butler and now Budda Baker. I have to say they have bolstered enough levels on D for a start. :)

bengals select feeney, @chad72is up

This is nonsense. You said if someone didn't pick, the top rated guy would go to them. Tim Williams was the top ranked player on the board, he should be the one picked. You can't change the rules now, I don't care if Zeitler is gone. He didn't show up, he gets the top guy left, not the one that fills a need. I wanted Feeney and it's not right you are breaking the rules and I can't get him now.

we actually voted and im pretty sure mostly everyone said feeney.. im pretty sure he would rather take him over tim Williams when OL is a bigger need and when Williams is questionable for is drug problem.

I don't care if Williams is questionable with a drug problem, he is still the highest rated player on the board, and OLB is a need. You can't vote on who he gets. The rules say he gets the top rated player that makes sense. Tim Williams is the top ranked player and he makes sense (fills a need). There's no argument here.

Jared does have a point. According to the rules, we said if someone missed their turn, the team would get the highest rated player as long as it made sense.

5) In the event that a GM does not submit a pick in the time limit, they will be given the highest ranked prospect from the big board that makes sense for their team (eg. the Titans wouldn't be given a QB in round one or two). 

 

This is the rule. 

 

What happened is that 21isSuperman asked about a consensus pick. I think we all forgot that there was already a rule in place if someone missed their pick.

Ruling right here.

I was just saying he would have picked an OL first because that is his biggest need and the player is good and he isn't far behind Williams and that pick makes the most sense

He loses the right to pick when he violates the alloted amount of time and gets the top ranked player available that makes sense. These are the rules, this is not for debate. He held the draft up for 4 hours, now he gets the top guy chosen for him that fills a need.

I get that but that is not what the rule said would happen in the event that someone missed his turn. Cincy should be awarded Tim Williams based on the rule. 

 

That's it from me.

Its a game, guys...a fake one at that...

It still had rules, and now we are making them up as we go. If the Bengals GM said to pick Feeney in case time ran out, I'm fine with it. Otherwise, follow the rules and give him Williams. An OLB is still a need for them. It may not be as big a need as G, but Tim Williams was the top player available and he makes some sense. The Bengals GM didn't choose, so that's who he gets. In a real draft, he would get skipped.

Sent a message to 21isSuperman. He made the rules and he has the power to change the pick. If he doesn't, I'm done with the draft. That seriously affected who I wanted, and it clearly violated the rules. I'm taking a stand here.

All right, I'll just play. Not going to keep everyone waiting all night. With the 45th pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars select Raekwon McMillian ILB, Ohio State.

 

The only ILB I really like left in the draft. Fills a big need, and the defense should now be elite. A 1st round talent in my eyes that will fall a bit for real.

    • My take   1. We overachieved last season. Period 2. We played at KC 3. TY limited the offense because he was so injured.  4. We played a very very good coach with time to prepare and his guys got some rest too and time to scout the team. Remember, Reich is well known to Reid as well by now.  5. Not having Hooker really mattered 6. Play calling was a bit blah 7. How does Vinny automatic miss those kicks? 8. A strip sack for us turns into a strip sack for them a few plays later, that hurt.  9. A young team who wasn’t supposed to be in the playoffs, let alone a second game in the playoffs had some factor here.  10. KC had a pretty good team   my concern from that game would be how poorly our run game was going forward. Kelly better play better than he did this season or I don’t see a 15 million/yr contract coming his way in Indy. I think with a healthy TY, the additions of DF and Cain and Paris and others should really boost that offense. An offense with TY, Paris, Doyle, EE and Mack, now that’s gonna be a tough group to match up with and defend. Run or pass, heck coach, idk what they are doing lol.    Gonna be fun to see this team evolve and have better back ups coming off the bench. I just hope we have enough beef in the middle to stop the run and I just hope that Kelly was hobbled in that KC game because it was one of his worst games that year. 
    • This again boils down to you hanging on to 'this is how it's always been done.' And you don't get that I don't care about that rationale. I think it can be done better. Which is why, in my first post in this thread, I said "to me, it's a no brainer." To me. It should be obvious that this is my stated preference, not me saying that teams that don't do it this way are stupid.   There should be nothing more that I have to say about that, except you continue to rely on that appeal to authority, and I'm telling you that 'how it's always been done' isn't legitimate reason for not examining potential alternatives. Not just in this area, but in everything.      You're missing an important detail, and I think it's because you've put my argument in a box and are unwilling to actually examine it on its merits.   As I said initially, and have said since, my argument is to make this change six months sooner, not six months later. "Imagine if we had fired Grigson in June 2016 instead of January 2017." Did you miss that part, again? What about "if the Texans had waited until January 2020 to fire Gaine..."?    I want him in asap. You want him asap, but not until January.   My statement about it being just one draft is referencing the worst case scenario, which is 'we just blew a draft cycle by letting a lame duck GM stay,' to which I say 'get over it, I'm okay with that if that's what it takes to get the guy I want in the building, with the staff he wants.' And that's where my argument about it potentially being easier to interview candidates in the down season after the draft is critical. The Jets wanted Joe Douglas; he evidently didn't want to entertain a move during draft season, but jumped at it in May/June. (There's the matter of moving his family during the school year, etc.) In theory, this approach could make it easier to interview good candidates. Whether you agree with that or not, whether it's important to you or not, this is mostly an aside. As I said, this was my response to the alarmist reaction of 'they just blew a draft!' Which I think is overstated, especially in the Texans' case.     Not at all. Again, if Ballard started in June 2016, he theoretically could have changed coaches a year sooner.      This is a hindsight fallacy. Go back to the Texans wanting to hire Caserio. I'm not arguing that he's going to be a great GM, I'm arguing that he's the guy they want to hire, and he's available in June. Same for the Jets and Douglas. The Chiefs and Veach.    We know that every person hired doesn't succeed. I never argued that they do. That's true of whoever you rush to hire in January. The point is that there is always a pool of qualified candidates from which to choose. I won't be retracting that, I firmly believe it, and I said it when the Colts were interviewing coaches in 2012, when they interviewed GMs in 2017, and when they interviewed coaches in 2018. You choosing to reject that is pretty ridiculous, to be honest. There are always qualified candidates. Choosing the right one is a different story.   And again, if there's one guy you really, desperately want, why wait until January to get him?     You could give me the benefit of the doubt and assume that if I'm saying it, I mean it. Especially this far into the discussion...    And going back to what I said earlier, this is and always has been my opinion. I'm not offering studies and conclusive evidence to support this opinion because it's a personal preference, it's what I think would be best (although I have offered evidence and rationale to support my opinion, you've just chosen to reject, for reasons I don't agree with).    I'm okay with the disagreement. What I find personally off-putting is the insistence that, because you don't understand my angle, it means I either haven't actually thought it through, or I don't actually believe it. As I said earlier, I understand that general consensus disagrees with my viewpoint, but that doesn't mean I'm just going to conform. The fact that I'm presenting an argument in earnest should be enough.
    • I'm an Iowa fan but I'd kind of like to see Michigan win that game so that it can maybe move back towards the appearance of a real rivalry.     That is unless an Ohio State victory would somehow help Iowa, in that situation I would root for the Buckeyes. 
    • 1. Turay - He looked pretty promising at times.   2a Nelson, 2b Leonard - They say that the biggest improvement comes in the 2nd year.  Amazing to think that 2 all pros could get better. 3. Rock Yan Sin  4. Hooker 5. Campbell
