Wow....no need to get rude. So what of Ballards picks over the last 3 years do u seeing as being star material based on their early performances in the league??

 

Hooker, Nelson, Leonard, Mack, and a whole bunch of starting caliber players that are super young with high ceilings.

Like I said,  I don't count Nelson and even Hooker.  They were high picks.  Leonard is average and so over rated by this board.  I will give u Mack.  I am waiting for one of these 2nd round pick to develop into a star.

I mean, you can't bash Ballard's drafting and say his first round picks don't count. Grigson's first round disasters sure counted...

 

Leonard isn't overrated by any means. He was deservedly all pro last season and was even injured most the season. He's struggled at times this season and today was no exception, but he's still the leader of this defense... and better than we have had at linebacker in a long time. 

 

Turay was on pace to being an elite pass rusher. Well on his way. Hopefully he bounces back in a big way.

Your leader got 2 penalties that could have arguably cost us the game? He cant cover to save his life and gets blown off the ball. He is loud and brings a lot of attention to himself.  I think he has developed into a me player this year with all the hype he got last year.  He just strikes me as being ego centric.  I could b wrong but that's just the way I feel

I've been very impressed with Mack.

I understand that thinking. But I think it's more of him bringing energy at all times, which he does and what the franchise wants and needs from him. We just need him to be the playmaker from last year.

He should less time dancing round the field and focus more on making the correct decision with regards to the flow of a play

    • Tobin did an excellent job...r.i.p
    • https://www.nfl.com/news/bill-tobin-longtime-nfl-executive-dies-at-age-83   He drafted some all time great players like Harrison, and of course is famous for his verbal match with Mel Kiper. RIP!
    • Then begs the question. Do u want to say draft a MJH at 4 and turn around in 4 years or would u say draft Turner and pay him 30mill in 4 years? All day every day for the franchise rush end. I am not a big believer in 30 mill for a wr. Reid is a fantastic coach and look what he did with Hill.
    • I literally just posted that clip, it's where the conversation about QBs started.
    • Funny you brought this up.  I just listened to an interview Ballard did today with Rich Eisen.  He asked him if he has given any thought on how many quarterbacks will be taken before our pick and how many does he think.  He said sure we go through those evaluations.  It helps us with for planning purposes.  He asked him how many.  4 or 5 or 6?   He laughed out loud at 6.  He said Rich if it’s 6 we will be so excited.  Let’s hope so.  He also said the draft board is not yet set.  Won’t be until the night before the draft.  He also said he has had multiple conversations with other GM’s concerning the draft.  Preparing themselves for opportunities that could take place.  And they will continue up until the draft starts.  He said trade conversations won’t really materialize until you are within three picks of any trade.  Giving you time to finalize it.  Interesting interview.  Oh he pretty much ruled out moving up for Harrison.   Going up into the top of the draft would be very costly for him he said.  Thinks he’s a great talent but he thinks he’s pretty much out of our reach.
