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.

    • They judged from training camp throughout preseason.  I don't think it was a mistake because clearly he was making plays.  I'm not sure how much room they had to anticipate he wouldn't be ready during the live games.  His case happened a bit different from Fountain, but they both when all the smoke cleared needed to sit and learn on the PS a little bit. 
    • Fromm is basically an upgraded Jacoby Brissett, a high-end game manager that won't turn the ball over and makes enough plays to win you some games. I'd take Fromm over JB.    I'd say take a guy like Jordan Love or Jacob Eason with the Redskins pick and develop them for a year under JB. End of next year, stick with whichever guy you're more confident will take you where you wanna go. 
    • Once Funchess hits the field either this week or next and assuming he gives us solid production throughout could we not just rework the contract if we want to bring him back?  I don't see this as a total waste with the 1 year contract he received. 
    • If, both Funchess and Campbell were healthy, I don’t think The WR position would look like a major need going into 2020. Fortunately, 2020 is loaded at WR and I wouldn’t be against taking one in Round #1.    The only FA WR I’d consider is A. Cooper, which won’t happen.   DT, CB, TE and possibly QB should the main positions addressed early in 2020.    
    • Are there true "Kelly fans"? Or did you put that in semi-quotes because it's a euphemism for something else?   I disagree with some of your characterizations of Kelly and Hoyer, but what I really disagree with is your characterization of the situation and the calculus of the staff. And I guess part of that goes back to your evaluation of Kelly.   Just think about his situation. We know he has physical tools, he had some good performances in college, and he hasn't been in trouble recently. Yet, he was the last player picked in his draft class, the Broncos didn't keep him despite having a terrible QB situation, he sat on the market until May, played well in preseason, but still cleared waivers in mid-September despite several teams having bad QB situations (Steelers, Jaguars, Washington, Eagles, Panthers, just a sample of teams that had early season QB injuries), then signed back to our practice squad. And he sat on our practice squad for two months without being plucked away (and yes, we're paying him active roster money, but another team could match that and give him a three week automatic spot on the active roster).   Now, you and other "Kelly fans" might think highly of his prospects, but you at least have to admit that he's not highly coveted by the rest of the NFL. It's entirely possible that the only reason he's even on an NFL team is because of his connection with Frank Reich. Other teams might feel like he's a talented project who needs to develop, but they might not have been convinced that he would put in the work and stay out of trouble. Reich felt like he could check both of those boxes, but that doesn't mean Kelly isn't still a project. That's my read on the reason Kelly was signed, cleared waivers, and stuck on our practice squad. I could be wrong, but I'm just connecting the dots.    If that's close to accurate, it doesn't really matter whether he's more talented than Hoyer. (There's another free agent QB who is way more talented and proven than Hoyer, and his initials are also "CK," but there are other reasons he's not on an NFL roster. Whether it's right or wrong, roster decisions don't just come down to talent, especially with QBs.) This is not a simple black/white evaluation of whether he's stable enough to be on the roster, in which case he should play over Hoyer, or if not, he shouldn't be on the roster at all. That's a gross oversimplification.   To the bolded, I especially disagree with that. I assume that Kelly stays on the active roster the rest of the season, barring a significant series of events that makes his roster spot absolutely critical. I don't think JB will be 100% for the rest of the season, so I think they'll carry three QBs as long as they can. I could be wrong.   And as it relates to Hoyer, I think these recent evaluations of him are overly harsh. I'm not and never have been excited about him as a QB, but he's done what a typical backup QB does throughout his career. He's not going to carry your team to victory, but he can run the offense. He's had a bunch of turnovers the last two games, but that's not typical of him. Before the Miami game, he hadn't had a multiple INT game in his last 21 starts, going back to 2014. He's a 60% passer who had a .500 record prior to a bunch of starts for a dreadful Niners team in 2017.   I'm thinking the reason he looked so bad against Miami is that our receivers were hurt, the OL didn't play well, and he made a couple bad decisions. (I also think Frank Reich left two thirds of his playbook in Kansas City, but that's a topic for another thread.) I don't think he's useless, I think he's a reasonable backup that was thrown out there in a terrible situation, and I don't think he got the help he needed from the rest of the offense. You say Hoyer weakens the team relative to Kelly, but that's heavily based on your bullish projection of Kelly. It's certainly not based on anything Kelly has done in the NFL.   Perhaps Kelly would have played better, but make a realistic assessment of the situation, and think about whether it would have been ideal to put him out there under those circumstances for his first real NFL game.    Hoyer vs Kelly isn't really a compelling argument for me. Right now, I'd rather have Hoyer play, but I think Kelly has way more upside. Overall, I hope JB is ready to go for the rest of the season (and I hope he starts giving his receivers more chances to make plays down the field), because he's better than both of them right now. If that's the case, we're arguing about which backup QB dresses but doesn't play on Sundays. Again, not compelling, IMO.
