Would you prefer? Alternate draft...


Recommended Posts

In hindsight, would you prefer our draft, or the following, assuming we don't trade our 1st rounder?

I just hate the fact for our first 2 games this year, we have to face picks 1 and 2 that were on my big board.

 

Reality:

» ROUND 2, PICK 2 (34th overall): Rock Ya-Sin, cornerback, Temple

» ROUND 2, PICK 17 (49th overall): Ben Banogu, linebacker, TCU

» ROUND 2, PICK 27 (59th overall): Parris Campbell, wide receiver, Ohio State

» ROUND 3, PICK 26 (89th overall): Bobby Okereke, linebacker, Stanford

» ROUND 4, PICK 7 (109th overall): Khari Willis, safety, Michigan State

» ROUND 5, PICK 6 (144th overall): Marvell Tell, cornerback, USC

» ROUND 5, PICK 26 (164th overall): EJ Speed, linebacker, Tarleton State

» ROUND 6, PICK 27 (199th overall): Gerri Green, defensive end, Mississippi State

» ROUND 7, PICK 26 (240th overall): Jackson Barton, tackle, Utah

» ROUND 7, PICK 32 (246th overall): Javon Patterson, center, Ole Miss

 

Alternate reality: draft tackles a lot more D-Line and O-Line, but much none for secondary.

 

1. Jerry Tillery (DT)

2. AJ Brown (WR)

2. Khalen Saunders (DT)

3. Bobby Okereke (LB)

4. Michael Jordan (G)

4. Foster Moreau (TE)

5. Kelvin Harmon (WR)

6. Isaiah Prince (T)

7. Gerald Willis (DT)

3 DTs? 2 WR? 0 edge rushers?Both of the WRs May be the BPA, but still, 2 of them?

 

and we don’t need 3 DTs at all. Tillery is fine, but with tyquan Lewis moving inside we don’t need more than 1 interior d linemen from the draft

 

And I don’t like at all how we don’t take ANY edge rushers. None AT ALL. I would not be happy.

 

Personally I’m just fine with Ballard’s draft

 All of us arm chair GMs don't know what Ballard and his scouts do. At the end of the day, I trust Ballard even though, this was by no means a sexy draft.

 

The final grades after every draft are to premature to even care about. We won't know how this draft shapes up for at least two seasons.

Each to his own but I like the one we had a whole lot better than the one above. Plus you have no mention of what should be a top 45 pick in what's said to be a very strong upcoming draft.

Our needs at DE are vastly overstated...

 

Sheard, Houston, Turay, and Lewis all are natural DEs.

Autry can switch to DE on running downs.

 

 

 

Sheard has one year left. Houston is 30 and on a two year deal. Lewis is not a DE in this defense  (just look at the types he drafted). Turay had strength issues last year.

 

I think there is definitely some long-term needs at DE. Colts are going to take a numbers approach it appears.

I like Turay a lot and I think he'll develop into a great edge rusher, but the point still stands that we need more than 1 promising young edge rusher. This draft supplied some.

Parris Campbell is a Jennifer Aniston from the 90s hot, super sexy pick in my eyes. I did a little scouting on him predraft, but after watching these highlights again knowing he's a Colt, pretty sure I pitched a tent.

There are some alternatives I may prefer but I have to say this one is tough.

 

Only because basically it appears the focus on CB's draft was on speed (in general) and on the secondary.

 

This alternative version focused more-so on speeding and athletic DTs for the DL (and not the speedy edge rusher types like Banogu) and on bigger WRs and not the shifty guy we got in Campbell. And it did not address the secondary at all. Not even one player there.

 

So I have to say I'd probably be more inclined to prefer what we actually did.

 

Definitely good names in the alternative. Just did not seem to fit what the staff appeared to be going for this year based on how things shook out.

 

 

I will be very curious to see if Banogu and that 2nd rounder from the Redskins next year ends up looking better than M.Sweat.

 

But otherwise, I think we did a solid job as is.

I’m a huge fan of Campbell. He’s raw, but fits Reich’s offense IMO. Super excited to see him catch some screen passes this season. Should be fun to watch. :headspin:

    • Look at the Ravens with the flying V  
    • No.  Rivers isn't a game manager like Grossman, he's much better than that. Our OL is better than Chicago's 2006 OL was, but we don't really know we're a 'run first' team right now.  We threw 46 times in week 1, and were certainly a pass first team in at least 1/3 of our games so far.   Yes, we do have an old WR (TY) and some young WRs (though our top 2 are hurt in Pittman and Campbell).     Yes, we do have a solid front 7 (Okereke is the only one who has worried me much so far, and I think we'll get even better should Turay come back).  Hopefully our DBs can keep taking the ball away, but we had 0 picks in game 1... so I'm skeptical about saying we're going to be consistent in doing that (especially considering Cousins had a very bad game and the Jets stink).     We're missing the best returner in NFL history (Hester), though I think Dulin/Rodgers/Hines have potential to be good - I highly doubt any of them are going to be close to Hester.     In short, it's way too early in the season to compare us to any other team from the past... our D was awful in week 1, it's looked good since but against the Jets (arguably worst team in NFL) and the Vikes who definitely had an off day.  Frankly, I think we have potential to be significantly better than the 2006 Bears (regardless of if we make the SB or not), but this is a totally different NFL than it was 14 years ago.
    • Yup, like I said, wish we used the speed like they did. Just not that. The way they attack the edges is awesome. It really opens up the middle. 
    • I'd change that to highly coveted UDFA :-) Total project, but yes, very interesting.  I remember a bit about him now from the draft. I need to do some more digging. I know small school, etc., but that's all I can recall. Ah. Makes sense. Thank you my friend.
