Yeah I gotta say I'm very pleased with how the draft went.  We got some GREAT value on at least 5 of our picks, we filled needs, and on paper at least this roster is better than it was on Wednesday.  I couldn't be happier with Ballard's first foray in the draft.

Here's a summary of my feelings about our draft picks:

 

4.1. Zach Banner - he's the only one I don't like. Lacks movement, HORRIBLE athleticism, incredibly huge, questions about ability to stay in shape. I think that's probably the worst Ballard pick in this draft

4.2. Grover Stewart  - I love the potential, have seen limited tape, but his athleticism is freaky for his size. Many scouts seem to love his developmental upside

4.3. Marlon Mack - one of my favorite RBs that we could have gotten late in the 4th. Great athleticism, explosive!!!

5.1. Nate Hairston - haven't watched him, I don't have an opinion on this one.

5.2. Anthony Walker Jr - Solid for this place of the draft. Will be part of the depth and competition at the position.

Congrats guys. I love your draft. I had hoped the Vikes would draft Basham. Good player. 

 

I don't know what the Vikings are doing today but I am not a GM. :dunno:

Anyone know who Rodney Adams (WR, USF) is? I will read about him but I would like to hear from anyone familiar with him.

 

Thanks.

You do? I am not crazy about what we have done today. This is a deep draft. Why are we trading 4th round picks for 7th round picks. We have 5 7th round picks. 

 

Do you know Rodney Adams?

 

Our fans are not crazy about Ben Gedeon. I like him but it was a major reach. I am ok with the Jaleel Johnson pick.

There were some Head Scratchers today but as a they have had a decent draft

I share that opinion...but apparently opinions are not allowed around here.

 

Yeah, it's weird. Over half the forum hated on the first round pick - one I loved - but people are getting on me about disliking a 4th rounder with flexibility, movement and weight issues.

Bummed by Mack pick. Do not like him at all. First official Ballard pick that I dislike.  

 

This guy is too slight and frail. He is a horrible pass blocker.  He won't hold up to the pounding of the NFL.  Florida State defense shut him down. Unproven against elite defensive talent.  And we take him.  Crap!  We got Josh Ferguson  2.0. 

 

5'11'' 213 isn't that small for a RB. He probably plays the season at 218 or so after gaining 5 lbs, which was basically Vick Ballard.

 

Just turned 21 less than a month ago too, so has room to put on a few pounds.

Hope he does.

    • Yeah... the newer analytics, if you trust them, by companies like PFF suggest the most valuable positions are the ones most tightly linked to the passing game are the ones that are most valuable ones - meaning, on offense - QB, WR... OT(because they are the hardest OL positions, a lot of one on one pass-protection work) and on defense - CB, EDGE pass-rushers, S... DTs can be valuable too, but they need to have considerable pass-rush production and most of them don't - because the inside is clogged and players get double teamed more easily, etc. The Aaron Donalds of the world are very very rare. I wonder how Buckner grades in their WAR system. He's one of the best interior rushers in the league, but still probably doesn't rank very high when you include all the other positions on the field. I know Aaron Donald' value in their system was about the same as that of an average QB. Just an illustration of how important the QB position is - an average to below average QB gives you the same value as the best interior rusher of this generation. 
    • I would just go with some under the radar guy on a bargain contract... those seem to be the types Ballard goes for. Or someone who was released before FA starts(so it wouldn't count towards compensatory picks formula).   So... I will wait for the cuts to start and pick one of those then... 
    • If the OT class sucked i would be ok with this but it doesn't    Hope we get LT in draft
    • I'm not gonna make excuses for Wentz, but everyone leads in different ways. Peyton was demanding, while Andrew was more nonchalant and dad like. 
    • About 1 hour 21 min into this 2 former teammates of Carson talk about him (FYI, there are a few curse words throughout the podcast):  https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/malcolm-jenkins-on-activism-saints-eagles-trash-talking/id1485277290?i=1000510312176   They say he's not a locker room cancer.  He's a nice guy.  He didn't have to be a leader early in Philly - Jenkins says "his rookie year, we just asked him to be a rookie QB rather than be a leader..." essentially they had enough vet leaders.  Chris Long says he never  thought of Wentz as a jerk, but his rookie year and his MVP level year, he never thought about Carson being a leader, just thought "this QB is very good" and essentially that the team of veteran guys and looking back the only thing he could think is Wentz could reach out to guys across the whole team, rather than just producing well on field... says Nick Foles not a great QB, but Foles had a magnetism about him that made him appear like the leader of that SB team when Carson went down.
