Wow I didn't see that coming either I knew we had a lot of DEs but I really liked Anderson

Ballard has lost a lot of the faith I had in him with this move. :facepalm:

Unlike a lot of other receivers in this class, Deon Cain has the potential to be a number one receiver.

 

However, he needs A LOT of work. Too many drops and he's not a good route runner. Having a better quarterback should help him out though.

 

I'm still worried about the linebacker and cornerback depth so I don't exactly feel good about drafting two running backs and two wide receivers today.

Also I can't believe a guy like Marquez Valdes-Scantling goes before Equanimous St. Brown.

Henry Anderson doesn't fit this system. He's quick enough to be a 4-3 end and he's not big enough to be a DT. He needs to be in a 3-4.

I was honestly expecting both Henry Anderson and Margus Hunt to be cut before the 53-man roster was set, so at least we got something for Anderson even though it was not much.

I'd at least give him a shot. We have absolutely nothing on defense right now. A 7th is worthless

I don't disagree about the concern over the lack of depth specifically at linebacker. However, the linebacker depth in this draft was not predicted to be good. Specifically when you are looking for ones with speed like the Colts. The Colts got more talented prospects at RB and WR today than they would have if they selected a linebacker or cornerback.

We really haven't determined if what the draft pick we got for him is not much. This pick may stick over a couple of others for all we know?

We just drafted two DEs and we still have Bashum, Sheard, and Simon. I don't think Anderson was making the roster anyway.

Just how do you know a 7th rounder is worthless?  Some of the best players in the league come out of late rounds.

Being negative before the pick is even made just shows you are just a negative person.

I saw Frank Reich was on ESPN not long ago. Did anyone catch what he said?

I'd much rather give Anderson a shot over anyone available in the 7th. If that's being negative then so be it

I am so happy Rutgers DT Sebastian Joseph-Day got drafted by the Rams. Always a team-first player and gave it his all every single day. 

 

Colts definitely had interest in him as he was a player in the top 30 visits.

@NFLfanColby Gossett is a nice pick for you IMO. He has starter potential. He was top 10 guard prospect on my board. 

 

Thank you. That is good to hear.

Btw, has Meeks been chosen yet? I went out after we picked the kicker and I am not home yet. 

 

How about this kid from Temple? His last name is Chandler, I believe.

I don't remember him being chosen. It's a bit of a surprise IMO. 

 

edit: I haven't watched Chandler.

Ade Aruna - another Minny special. He's the exact type they draft in later rounds - great explosive athlete. Developmental prospect.

Even if we use our next 2 picks on a CB we cannot trust our current CB dept. I think we should look at free agency immediately.

 

Bashaud Breeland comes to mind he recently failed a medical with the Panthers because of an infected cut on his foot which we would need assurances on.

 

We should also add some more dept at safety esp after Hooker's injury last season. S, Tre Boston hasn't any lasting injury concerns. In 2017, he started 15 games at free safety for the Chargers, recording career-highs of 79 tackles, eight passes defensed, and five interceptions. Chargers just signed a 1st round safety so I think they wont sign him again.

 

Any free agency suggestions?

Another linebacker I have no idea about. I hope we go after Matthew Thomas out of FSU if he's not drafted. I think he has good potential.

Which lucky team is the 2018 NFL Draft Champions?

 

I think most people will say the Giants or Broncos but I liked what the Patriots did. Isaiah Wynn and Sony Michel were great picks late in the first. Braxton Berrios is the type of receiver who excels in their offense. And I love watching Ja'whaun Bentley. I thought Bentley was underrated this past season. I think he will produce in the NFL.

    • Agreed! It only takes one *. To clarify, it was a Police Officer, not a Security Guard.   Personally, I thought the Officer was extremely intelligent handling the situation. His “situational awareness” was top notch, being surrounded by a bunch of reporters, cameras and players looking up to a guy who just distributed Benjamin’s.  It was not in his best interest to arrest OBJ at that moment.    Being a Cop is difficult, everyone has a camera and it only takes a few seconds of a 2 minute video to paint the wrong picture, depending on the motivation.   Looking at the diverse opinions here, it’s easy at least for me to see, that the Police Officer was extremely professional handling this the way he did.  If, this had of been a female Cop or two civilians in the work place, I’m certain the conversation would be somewhat different. And it’s very unfortunate that we can’t all find common ground on what is appropriate or inappropriate.     Unfortunately, not everyone likes the Cops, including some that posted in this thread.    @csmopar Just a having fun with you nothing personal.  Apologies        
    • Mmmhmm. I was deathly afraid of the Chargers that year. I was so relived to see the Pats. And my what a shock to say, but we had beaten them 2 times straight and I felt Peyton finally got the monkey off his back. Plus that was first time we were getting the Patriots at home in a while. 
    • Reader, Armistead, or Byron Jones might make sense.  Getting two of them could be a coup for our defense.  Them wanting to play here is the concern though. 
    • Nice discussions everyone. I for one am not going to get riled up one way or the other. After watching the UCLA and Oregon State tape for Gordon, I found several questionable throws that defenders dropped INTs on that I felt would have been a death sentence in the NFL but then he also threw 9 TDs and did very well vs zone coverage.  Some say he can be coached out of playing hero ball or throwing bad ones into traffic, I am leery about it. One can say the same about selective tape for Jordan Love as well. The guys in charge, I am sure they watch more than 1 game tape or just highlight reels, or just get enamored with 1 year numbers, I will be happy with whatever they decide. I like Gordon as well but I like Love a little more, for the record. Both will have to be coached out of certain tendencies, IMO.   Hey, the first pick in the 1998 draft threw 28 INTs, and thankfully Jameis Winston broke that with 30 INTs this year.   The 6th pick in the 2019 draft (Daniel Jones) was a turnover machine as well. So, even the highest rated QB, who likely will be going to an inferior team will feel the pressure and will make mistakes. Guys like Mahomes, they do not come around often, but you don't want to miss out on someone that has close to his upside either. No matter who we draft at QB, we anticipate him sitting for a year to work out his flaws. Even Mahomes had to sit out a year. The Chiefs had the luxury, we have the same as well, IMO.    All I do not care for is a WR at No.13 because that will not give us good bang for the draft position in a deep WR class, and I elaborated my case in another thread.
    • The reason I compare him to Brissett when talking about him is because the similarities with their passing games are striking and it's easy to illustrate a point when people would know exactly what I'm talking about with Hurts' game when I say he has trouble going through progressions and gets stuck on primary read and drops his eyes sometimes too soon and leaves the pocket to run. His weaknesses in the passing game mirror those of Brissett pretty closely and people would know what I mean because they've seen it for two seasons now with Brissett.    IMO he's not good enough of a passer/processor of the game to be a traditional pocket passer in the league and when he leaves the pocket he's doing it to run rather than to make plays with the pass. His athleticism is much better than Brissett's though and IMO this is the way he should be used - in a Lamar Jackson type of offense - where the offense is built around the QB's ability and threat to run the ball. The problem is - I don't think he's nearly as athletic and elusive as Lamar and he takes some brutal hits regularly on his runs. IMO whoever drafts him needs to build their whole offense around his running and hope to god he doesn't get injured.   I'm just not willing to make that bet.
