Poor Perspective guys, we took our #3 and got Nelson and 3 2nd Round picks you are crazy if you don't think that is outstanding value.

Wow.  Last year CB picks an overrated safety, now this year an overrated G.  Ballard is worse than Grigson.

Do you ever get tired of being wrong?

one more thing in the comparison to Marlon people are throwing out . Nyheim is a better natural catcher and doesnt bounce it outside as much. If he gets a crease he is gone he's very electric as myself and others have stated its a RB rich draft and he is a playmaker who can have an impact on SP teams and 3rd down right away.

@stitches who are the best remaining players on your board?

 

Which team's draft are you most impressed with? (I love the Ravens and Giants drafts)

Mo Hurst

Josh Sweat

Holton Hill

Tyrell Crosby

Eq. St Brown

Quenton Meeks

Andrew Brown

Jamarco Jones

 

the first 3 have various issues - Hurst the heart, Sweat seems to have degenerative knee condition, Holton Hill - various red flags so that might be why they are still on the board... 

 

I haven't studied the different teams hauls so far so I will reserve my right to comment on it for later. I liked what the Titans did by getting Landry in the second and Evans in the first, but they traded their 3d and 4th picks in the process...

Antonio Callaway to the Browns is an interesting pick. Probably the most talented WR in this draft. If he keeps it together that could be a steal for them.

 

Well, the Browns have a really bad role model set up for him.....

    Josey Jewell to Denver at LB..

Maybe I'm biased because I saw him in the Big-10 but I liked him a lot

4-year starter... 3-time team captain...top tackler

 

If he's not hurt..he may start for the Broncos sooner than later

There goes Callaway to the Browns.

I feel like the Browns are playing with fire with this pick. I think either Gordon will help keep Callaway out of trouble or they're both going down in flames.

Wow, QB Kyle Lauletta to the Giants.

REALLY good pick for the Giants. Lauletta doesn't have great deep ball accuracy, but he's really good with short and intermediary, and amazing in the red zone. I can see him being the successor to Eli.

Thank you. You like St. Brown more than Hamilton?

I'm biased but I'm very happy with Denver

 

Bradley Chubb..

 

a new set of WRs in Courtland Sutton and Desean Hamilton

..The Boston College corner Ike Yiadom

The big Oregon RB Royce Freeman..5,000 yards rushing in college

..and the Iowa Linebacker Josey Jewell..who started for 3 years and was all-Big-10

 

Emmanuel Sanders and Demaruis Thomas are over 30 years old.

.They just let go RB CJ Anderson and Aquib Talib....and drafted replacements for all of them

 

They have to trust Case Keemun to be what he was last season...because they got him real help here

You may have missed it. I love DaeSean Hamilton. Broncos have had a very good draft.

Didn't Hines run a 4.35? I look his Stats up and he had 1113 on 5.6 per carry last season. This looks to be a solid pickup!

yeah he's fast he's got some stuff he can be coached up on like all the players. The margins are wider on the NFL so he will have more space to operate in. Plus he hit some big runs coming out of wing t sets or RPO looks in a pro set you can move him around and get matches with LB's and we will win that match up. in the return game i think he has ton of + side since we've had good blocking at times but no home run or big play hitter he will help right away. Also give more competition for Mack. this is a good pick.

I did see that.....

..they must believe in Case because they passed on many QBs....

Sutton is kind of a protégé of Emmanuel Sanders..both went to SMU

..and I've watched Jewell play against Purdue and Michigan and Indiana

If hes not hurt I don't know why he was in  the 5th round.  I love this group..

 

..but I'm sure you know, you can see what you want to see on draft day.

 

I liked Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler coming out of the Big-10 to Denver,

Both were very average and have been released..

We are still in the 4th round.

 

But I like Jewell too. I picked him for the Steelers in the Colts Forum Mock Draft. He looked like a Steeler.

Yeah he looks sensational. I watch College Football and pretty much know who the top 5 players are at each position but I overlooked this guy for some reason. Not saying he is Top 5 but his highlight reel looks scary good!

Mayock said he could only find 2 teams that have cleared him. 

 

I hope someone drafts him. If he does have what Len Bias has, then I could see why teams have shied away from drafting him. I would take a chance on him. I also wanted the Vikes to use a 6th or 7th round pick on Lael Collins too.

    • Well if we keep 3 QBs then whoever is better in camp/training can be the back up.
    • I have no idea what to do with measurements and athletic testing from players this year. Do you ignore them altogether? How do you know which ones are real'ish?      
    • In reality they are probably right to point out that most GMs in the league don't have long enough track record to be free of small sample bias one way or the other. It's very likely if you gave every GM 100 drafts, their draft success will tend to converge toward the average. BTW, I wonder where Grigson would be on those graphs. I would guess pretty high thanks to drafting Luck and TY Hilton(similar to HOU in this graph thanks to Deshaun Watson). Just another reminder that even though those graphs might be useful in some cases you have to keep in mind their limitations and biases.
    • Doug...  these anti-Watson rants have gone from bad to worse.   Other posters here have noted you make it sound personal.   You have mischaracterized most everything that has happened.   Watson has a lot of support around the NFL.   I’d say far more support than dont.   I don’t pretend to know how this is going to finish?   But I hope you can lower the temperature here...   I don’t think it’s helpful.   Just my two cents...     
    • Yeah, if Miller or Haeg had the WHOLE resume and the talent of Godwin maybe we should. Worth pointing out that this was probably the worst stretch of Godwin's career (and it was mainly thanks to drops). I think he had like 7 drops in the playoffs while never having more than 2 in a whole season previously. I would personally consider that a freaky happenstance, and trust the much bigger sample of him being a very reliable catcher of the football. Also, it's not me that's taken it here. YOU just did.   I've already pointed out several times that this is NOT my 'take', but rather a guess on part of the explanation on the Bucs place in those graphs. So why do you keep going with this? At this point I am considering this bad faith exchange on your part. On the second part - yes, it would have to be taken in consideration(if they were up for trade and tied in similar contracts, rather than Godwin being a FA). BTW Godwin is one of the players we should consider breaking Ballard's bank on this FA. Insert Whynothaveboth.gif Agree with this. Evans is both better and more valuable than Godwin. Worth pointing out that both Superbowl teams had premier pass catching weapons as it relates to our discussion on the value of the position.
