You mean WR Marvin Harrison Jr, Indiana lol jj

 

Heh...that would have to be in some alternate universe.

 

Of course, UK had a #1 pick some years back...and Murray State is going to have a lottery pick in the NBA draft.  So anything’s possible (well, except perhaps IU producing a #1 draft pick in football).

It's already an alternate universe for a WR to go #1 in the draft.  1996 was the last time that happened.

its never been that common, at least in the modern era.  has only happened twice since the 60s

 

i just noticed that since 96 only QBs, LTs and DEs have gone #1.  mostly QBs

we all know Qbs are important, and they have been 65% of the #1 picks since keyshawn johnson.  many  of the LTs and DEs have been pretty questionable value wise. 

 

i never said positional value doesnt exist, just that it wouldnt be the only factor i go by.  i was in favor of us taking nelson beore the draft, and ok with kelly after we did it

    • Blue jersey with the white pants, and the road whites are the best.
    • Lets put aside the evaluation of our EDGE rushers as average(which I disagree with especially on the EDGE). The problem is that those are now gone, so what we have now is not average even in your evaluation - it's the substitutes for the average ones that are FAs now(Houston, Autry, Muhammad).   So now our options are several really :   First, try to resign those and hope the aging of Houston and Autry don't deteriorate their play even more(they don't have the potential we are looking for either way... at this point of their careers they are what they are and it's more likely they go down than up in production and play). So... maybe we kick the can down the roat with them... so what are we willing to pay for them, then?    Second option - trade for someone with good potential... or already good? Would you give up #21 for Von Miller or someone of the sort?    Third option - get someone from the FAs. IMO the average ones available will likely be improvement over what we had last year. But are they worth the money they will command?    Fourth option - just run with what we have and draft a DE high hoping he will be useful player early with potential for more down the road?    I think I like some combination of 3 and 4 the most. I don't want us to go into the draft NEEDING to draft a DE. This IMO is a recipe for disaster and for reaching on prospects(or for teams to jump us for specific player knowing we need to address the position). So what I would do is ... get one of those average-ish DEs on the market. All they cost is money... and this is money in a depressed market. Maybe they turn into bargains? Then play it by ear and if you find good value in the draft - add more pieces there.   What would be your plan for DE? I really, REALLY don't like going just no. 4. Maybe 1+4 with short term deals on Autry and Muhammad can be a good option too...   Yeah, I wouldn't mind that but then again - I still want us to try to address DE somehow... with some players that can at least be average-ish... Would you go into the draft or god forbid the next season with just Kemoko, Banogu, Lewis and Kameron Cline? What would your expectation be for that type of rotation?  Agree here, but again... you still need at least some base level of quality of pass-rusher. Otherwise Buckner will just get doubled every damn snap and even his production and disruption will be diminished. 
    • Breathing room this year sacrifices cap space and flexibility next year, and beyond. Why not just sign Leonard, Smith and Nelson now, and structure the deals in a way that minimizes their cap hits in 2021? The difference is that the three re-signs are 2-3 years younger than Kelly, and more likely to be here long term. 
    • I was actually going to say the same thing. The center situation at the start of Luck's run was stunningly bad for a few years. That meme of Satele pointing at some guy saying "I'm not blocking him" still rings in my head.
