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.

    • Could be Aaron Rodgers... Let's try an "A"
    • I mean... we were 7-9. I get that we have high expectations, but sometimes you see teams have to be bottom feeders for several years before they can start sniffing sustained success (see: the 49ers). If we imagine that we'd lost Luck at the start of the Ballard era I imagine we'd be looking at our team in a much different light. We probably would not have reached the playoffs any of those years.    Ballard inherited a bad, aging roster from Grigson and I felt right away this would be a 3 year project minimum before we were competitive. Well it only took two years and going into that year 3 we looked so promising. Then BAM Luck retires.    Luck's impact on this team is enough that it certainly changes our team's outlook when he's gone. A 3 year rebuild turns into what? 5? And honestly? That's where I think we are. We were a few missed kicks, late interceptions away from the post season this year already. With the cap we have, and the draft stock we carry, as long as we can improve our QB situation, the rest of our roster is primed to continue to grow for a couple more years before we really have to start worrying about cap.    So with that said... please don't retire Anthony Constonso!  My heart may not be able to handle the setback.
    • For me the main thing I can't get over with Fromm is not the arm strength althought I think you can see it in certain situations. The main things I dislike and I think will limit him in the league are: -pocket presence - it's the worst from anybody in this class. It's horrible. He is statuesque in the pocket and has no feel or vision or ability to even try to avoid rusher unless it's the most obvious of situations, he doesn't step into the pocket, he doesn't sidestep rusher...he would just stay in there and try to deliver the ball from the platform he's initially dropped to.  -inability to playmake - this ties into the pocket presence and armstrenght weaknesses too. Very little ability to make plays out of structure. If the pocket breaks, he's usually done, doesn't escape collapsing pockets and if it's one of the obvious cases where he actually sees it he doesn't have the armstrenght to make plays on the run and off platform.   I love a lot of the other things about him(leadership, accuracy on short to intermediate throws, anticipation, reading the field, smarts and command of the offense at the LOS, adjustments), but in today's NFL when defensive linemen have such athletic freaks and OLines are struggling to protect the QBs, IMO having the ability to navigate the pocket when it's workable or to leave it and make plays out of it when it's collapsing is very important. My worry is that those are fatal weaknesses that will manifest themselves in him not being able to show off his best attributes simply because in the NFL nobody is working with prestine pockets.
    • Everyone calm down. Wouldn't it be more natural if he retired at half time of preseason week 3?
    • Just because Luck didn't have the arm of Matthew Stafford,  doesn't mean he didn't have well above average arm strength.        His arm strength is as good as Tom Brady, as Aaron Rodgers,  as Drew Brees and on and on....   Just because you strength isn't elite,  doesn't mean it isn't good enough....
