2018 NFL Draft Thread

WOW! Saw someone lean in and whisper something into Sam Darnold's ear 5 mins before the pick and his face sunk like he just saw a ghost. From then I thought he knew he wasn't going number 1.

Seems like a stretch now. It's a big risk. Cleveland could have the last laugh though.

Understood.  Just working off the general thought, my friend.

Have a feeling it was more last ditch efforts

Too bad, Colts fans.  Baker no longer available to bail us out.

 

Thank the Lord.

There will be some trade ups coming now. Rosen and Allen won’t fall far.

Allen might

Agreed.  But hindsight is 20/20 and we got a good offer for the time.

Giants say TYVM we don’t need a QB... did they even try to trade down?

Eli is still quality.  They upgraded the O-Line a bit, so they could make some noise next year.

Been saying I didn't think the Giants would go QB

Yes I thought it was trade or Barkley all along.

Does Chubb get to us?

Both Cleveland and Denver are possibilities...but also trade partners for others.

i think that trade is looking good right now for both teams

 

getting darnold there was a steal imo, but three high picks to move back three spots was great for us

Depends on what Cleveland does at 4... do they trade down? If not they'll probably grab Chubb if not a "mystery defensive player they like" which was rumoured a couple weeks ago... my guess is if its a surprise it's Derwin James or Denzel Ward.

Both Cleveland and Denver have hole at corner.

If Chubb is off the board and two more qbs are still there I think we trade back.

I still want Nelson if Denver doesn't take him.  Call me after #5, lol.

    • Real NBA pundits, coaches and execs were parroting "Jump shooting teams cannot win in the NBA" and "You need low post presence to win" just like... 5-10 years ago. Data and analysis about the value of the 3 has been available for close to 20 years. You underestimate just how married people are to their old ways and how hard it is to teach the old dog new tricks, especially when this is all they've known for their whole lives and now you are telling them what they've been taught for 20-30-50 years is wrong. Some will adapt and flourish, most won't...    My favorite quote that encapsulates perfectly the situation comes from a field that is MUCH more open to new ideas than football - science. And even there, there is a long history of resistance to new ideas. Physicist Max Planck once said "Science advances one funeral at a time". What he meant was that science doesn't advance by convincing the old guard that the new ideas are correct, but by the old timers just dying out and the new generation unburdened by emotional attachments to the old stuff being allowed to just follow where the evidence points to.    BTW I do NOT think the run game is meaningless or that it doesn't have a role to play in today's game. It is extremely important in situational football, in end of game situations, in goalline and 3d and 4th and short situations, etc. I just do not think it serves anyone any good perpetuating myths about its importance for things that have been repeatedly shown to not correlate to run-game success.     
    • For those that wanted Suh, hes off the board.   https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/05/21/ndamukong-suh-expected-to-sign-with-buccaneers/
    • The problem is the secondary is really hard to watch from the angles we are getting on TV and the fans general population doesn't dissect in detail what's happening ... they just see the big plays - the interceptions, the big pass-breakups, or a big missed tackle etc... they don't see when the QB doesn't even throw the ball because of perfect coverage or threat of playmaking by players like Hooker. The real insane stat here is 1 reception per 130 snaps... that's like ... once every 2.5 games or thereabout... there is a value to what Hooker provides both as a playmaker and as a deterrent for opposing QB's even thinking about throwing deep. 
    • My gripe with Stitches view is these coaches have access to this same data that you're quoting. They have all kinds of stat men in the building with them.  I don't think they are oblivious to any of this stuff.  Then you've got actual football coaches in this forum like Coffedrinker and Princeton Tiger and very few of them really down play the importance of running the football and what it does for your passing game.  I just can't buy that all of them are just merely being stubborn and ignoring the data for age long myths.  I think there's a better reason why coaches still keep that mantra.
    • he got off to a slow start last year, but everyone had to notice his interception on eli and his solid play overall by the end of the year   fans just go by what they see, and that can change a lot week to week.
