Deandre Baker makes lot of sense at 26

Not only is it too small, we know he drafted Wilson at 46. To definitively 'know' he wouldn't get a guy 20 spots earlier is absurd. 

I agree, but the ones that argue it, do it on the basis of the scheme not requiring high level of talent at the CB spot and the scheme was changed to the current Tampa 2 - hybrid the year after we drafted Wilson.

I just don’t see drafting another CB that high who would be a starter. Are we going to cut Desir or Wilson? No. Wilson had really good statistics this year and we just signed Desir.

HE'S the one reading too much into a quote?  You consistently take quotes that are based around several philosophy and create the most rigid opinion possible. 

 

Its entirely possible I’ve misread the OP.   I don’t think the OP does a good job of saying what he means.   He has a long history of that particular problem.

There may have been 3 or 4 people on this board who agreed with me when I said that Ryan Kelly made the most sense with our first round pick. 

I wasn't on this board at the time but I was all for drafting Ryan Kelly. I can only imagine the blowback you were getting at the time lol.

Wig....

 

I think you're a good poster....    so I'll make you a sincere offer...   and I'm making it publicly,  so everyone can see it,  and not privately so only you'd see it....

 

The next time you think I've taken something and turned it into the "most rigid opinion possible"....   call me on it.    Ask me how I came to the viewpoint.   

 

Ask,  and I'll try to do a better job of explaining how I reached the view that I did....

 

If you want to ask about something that is currently posted,  go right ahead.    If you want to ask about future posts,  go right ahead.     And I'm not saying only do it once.    Not at all.    Call me out however many times you'd like to.    Whenever you'd like to.

 

Fair enough?

 

By the way,  the offer is fully extended to any poster.   I stated to Wig, because he made the direct claim.

There were dozens with pitch forks and gasoline. Another few dozen were arguing over whether or not to use a lighter or matches to burn me to the ground. There was a March Madness Rock, Paper, Scissors bracket to determine who got to light the fire. 

 

But yeah... Now everyone agrees that the Ryan Kelly pick made sense. This board has a selective memory and very few members understand the definition of, or care to have any integrity. 

 

Well...    I can't speak for anyone else,  but I can for one.    Me.    I was in the Kelly camp for months, and like you, made many arguments for him.     That was an interesting time.....

I believe there is less than a 10% chance we take cb with the 1st or second pick. - 5% taking one with 26.   I think there is less than a 10% chance we take a WR with either of the 1st 2 picks.

 

We have a better chance at taking a TE than we do cb or WR

 

I believe there is a 80% + that we take a SS in the 1st 2 picks because that is where the best value will be.

I don't need to ask, though.  It's been in every thread about corners for about a year.

I don't see it as our first pick. Unless there's a skilled position heads and shoulders above a linemen I seriously doubt Ballard will be drafting. 

 

Also so I don't know anything about the guy but he seems really really tiny.is he going to hold up against the run game?

I'm sorry....    not trying to be difficult...

 

But I don't understand two things.

 

One,  why did you include my comment reguarding Blue Shoe and I being in favor of drafting Kelly?      Two,  what is your issue about my comments regarding cornerbacks for the last year?

 

I don't know what I'm supposed to say or explain?     

 

Can you elaborate?

More like makes no sense. DB that is not tall (the kind that Ballard likes), slow.

The first quote was a mistake using mobile. 

 

I think you've taken a Ballard quote and taken into account too much, and that he'd pass on Night Train Lane if available at the end of the first.

    • Salary cap. They're up against it this year, and they have a lot of free agents next year. 
    • The more I think about this, the more I feel the Colts may try to trade back.  Ballard said himself there are only about 8 players they would consider in the 1st, and my bet is most or all will be gone by 26.  This is an overall weak class compared to last year except the DL.     Hopefully get an extra 2nd out of the deal!
    • I've been preparing to hear some unexpected names with our first 3 picks, if we stay there, but I still think I'll be surprised at some of them. Some potential surprises IMO could be McLaurin or Banogu (who I admittedly don't like much) in the early/late 2nd. Or Jacobs at #26, which I'd also not be very high on. And those are just ones that would kind of surprise me. I fully expect an out of left field pick at either 26, 34, or 59.
    • I understand where you are coming from, but late First Round WRs rarely pan out either. Here's a list 20 of the top WRs in the NFL and where they were drafted, based on The Draft Networks list, https://thedraftnetwork.com/articles/the-top-20-wide-receivers-in-the-nfl:   Deandre Hopkins - Round 1, Pick 27 Julio Jones - Round 1, Pick 6 Michael Thomas - Round 2, Pick 47 Antonio Brown - Round 6, Pick 195 Adam Thielen - Undrafted Odell Beckham Jr - Round 1, Pick 12 Tyreek Hill - Round 5, Pick 165 Mike Evans - Round 1, Pick 7 Juju Smith-Schuster - Round 2, Pick 62 Davante Adams - Round 2, Pick 53 Keenan Allen - Round 3, Pick 76 Stefon Diggs - Round 5, Pick 146 AJ Green - Round 1, Pick 4 TY Hilton - Round 3, Pick 92 Brandin Cooks - Round 1, Pick 20 Robert Woods - Round 2, Pick 41 Amari Cooper - Round 1, Pick 4 Kenny Golladay - Round 3, Pick 96 Tyler Lockett - Round 3, Pick 69 Emanuel Sanders - Round 3, Pick 82   Totals: Top 16 of Round 1: 5 Bottom 16 of Round 1: 2 Round 2: 4 Round 3: 5 Round 4: 0 Round 5: 2 Round 6: 1 Round 7: 0 Undrafted: 1   As can be seen, most value in the draft at WR can be gotten in the either the top of the first or the second and third rounds. Only two WRs taken in the back half of round one have become top 20 caliber players.    Let's also look at the past 5 drafts, receivers taken in the bottom half of round 1:   Brandin Cooks (2014) Kelvin Benjamin (2014) Nelson Agholor (2015) Breshad Perriman (2015) Philip Dorsett (2015) Will Fuller (2016) Josh Doctson (2016) Laquon Treadwell (2016) DJ Moore (2018) Calvin Ridley (2018)   While the jury is still out on Moore and Ridley, only Cooks has really performed at a high level out of them all. 5 of the remaining 7 have been very disappointing thus far (Benjamin, Perriman, Dorsett, Doctson, Treadwell), and the remaining two are both unreliable at times, and decent at best. Based on this evidence, I personally would least like 26 to be WR. In fact, I would only put QB, P, K, and OL below it at that slot. Late first round receivers rarely pan out, and I want this draft to be another big success to push us up the ladder into SB talks.
