Some "Experts" Thoughts on our Draft


Recommended Posts

I've read a time or two now that some pundits "think" that our first 4 picks could start for us this year.

 

So Rock at CB over whom? Desir, Wilson or Moore?

 

Banogu is easy as he'll likely be the SAM and a designated rusher.

 

Okereke would likely have to beat out Walker for the MIKE position, which he comes in as a higher pick and better measurables, but, can he call the defense?

 

Campbell is easy as well as he'll likely start as the slot receiver on day one.

 

If this happens and makes any of Desir, Wilson, Moore II, Adams or Walker back-up/depth pieces then we're in great shape defensively in my opinion!

 

Additionally, the 8 position players that were drafted the average RAS Score is 8.225. That is amazing athletic ability added across the board!

Just thinking about this... Since DL already has a year in the system, do you think it's possible they move him to MIKE, and let him call the defense, and give Okereke the WILL spot? I think Darius could be a heckuva MIKE in our system too.

Wilson has the best chance at being a backup. Moore is a dog so I don’t see anyone beating him out right now. They would have to be very good. 

 

It's crazy to me that even though he's going into in his 3rd NFL season, & after drafting Ya Sin & Tell, Quincy Wilson is still the youngest corner on our roster.

Rock Ya-Sin: May 23, 1996 (age 22 years)
Marvell Tell III: August 2, 1996 (age 22 years)
Quincy Wilson: August 16, 1996 (age 22 years)

That is crazy. He probably should of stayed in college another year.

I mean it's possible. As I recall in the nickel they essentially do the same thing? In the base 4-3 the roles are different though.

 

I'm sure the staff will find ways to get 3 guys on the field at LB with 4.5, 4.58 and 4.6 flat 40 times.....

The 2 years experience that he already has at the NFL level will likely end up being far more valuable than playing 1 more year at Florida, especially 2 years from now when he's up for a new contract.

I wouldn’t be so quick to kick Walker out of the starting lineup. Dude was pretty darn good last year.

No one's beating out Walker for anything. He's too good. Because people are playing more nickel and dime than ever before, there'll be plenty of playing time for Ya-Sin, Marvell Tell III, etc. 

 

And all the Times that we play a base package with 3 linebackers, that's when Okereke and others can come in the picture.

 

Plenty of playing time for everyone

In some packages  Walker Leonard  and okereke could be on the field at the same time

Interesting that you think some of these are easy....

 

I'm not sure any of our rookies will START on Day 1.

 

Rock?     I don't see it.

 

Banogu?      Don't see it.

 

Campbell?      Hilton and Funchess,  I don't see it.   

 

Okereke?      He's a LONG way from starting.

 

I think these guys will start,  someday down the road.   Maybe next year.    Or, if the starter gets hurt this year.     But this year,  I think all our guys are depth or practice squad.

 

And I'm not down on our class at all.   They will play,  they will contribute,  but I don't see anyone starting and certainly not Day 1.

With Banogu and Campbell I meant they will be holding a specific position as SAM and Slot and consider those starters even though they may be specialized spots....

 

Rock and Okereke will certainly have a tougher hill to climb for sure.

I think this one is pretty straightforward.

 

Rock and Desir at CB.

 

Moore at the Nickel, where he excels and can be utilized as a blitzer.

 

Wilson will be the Dime.

    • Per Rotoworld  Ravens are scheduled to host free agent Justin Houston. Houston, 32, hasn't received much interest in a deep free agent class, primarily keeping in touch with Indy after he notched his lowest sack total (8) since 2017 with the team as a rotational player last year. Baltimore is flush with depth but could deploy Houston exclusively on third down, making it an enticing destination for any one-year 'prove it' deal.   I expect movement one way or another will happen soon.  
    • Of course the accused has rights but it says nothing about the public needing to know their identities with their full first and last names. How else is Watson going to defend each allegation without addressing them individually?   Thats why I felt Watson and his lawyers can know but when it does get to a criminal case, the jury needs to know Woman A, Woman B and just the facts surrounding the case for each of the women. Their first and last names are immaterial to the jury (or should be). The lawyers and their teams can dig up all they want based on their identities that will be known to them, which is what they’re supposed to do anyways.   The only goal here is to drag the women through mud in the public’s eyes, clearly.
    • Are you really counting on Campbell?
    • He's too good of a player on the field to get rid of because of his trade motivations or this legal matter at the moment.  The trade demand seemed like he was just dug in over some hot headed comments he made public, and couldn't back down from, and this situation has some elements to it that are less serious than your normal sexual crime.   I'd give it a season to let him calm down and get his personal life in order, with a possibility that he's humbled after he pays his punishment,.  At some point, he may just want to play football again.   Follow the contract.  Make him pay back some signing bonus he probably owes HOU if he chooses to sit out, and of course don't pay him his salary.   Like I said before.  Do nothing.  Don't say anything publicly other than you support your player and that you want him as your QB, understanding that Tyrod Taylor is your $12M Qb this season. Give him a season to get his head together.
