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?

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.

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:

 

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'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.

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.

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'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. 

 

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.

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?

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.

    • I think we need to move on and get younger. Houston has loss a little bit of that edge as he is getting up there in time.
    • Not sure how Bold  some are.  Schefter predicted SF will draft Mac Jones, and if he goes to SF, that's a extremely good situation.  Some say they are a SB team. So statistically speaking, a rookie QB can have best stats in his class in year 1 in SF.   We lost Walker,  so replacing  him early is not so far fetched.    
    • Yes...   if Waddle falls to 21, I’d take him too, assuming his ankle has been cleared.   There are exceptions to the rules.   And the top-4 pass catchers are the exception this year.     One last thought to consider...      What my board, your board, and any other board out there, they all look different.  The further you get away from pick #1 the more different every boards look.  People do not see personnel decisions the same.  We all see this differently.  We value various qualities differently.  We value different positions differently.      32 teams, their 32 different boards would all look different.   I say this every year,  but it seems a concept that some do not understand or embrace.   I know you’re new, so some of this is more focused on other readers and not you.  My comments are more broadly focused and not just for you.   Thanks for understanding. 
    • I know his CB is Farley 
    • Gotta be Surtain and Chase. They are easily the best two at their positions.     Newsome over Horn is interesting.
