That's fine, but I think buried in the ranking was the relative great performances of the later picks like Okerke, Willis, and Tell more than the earlier picks living up to....or exceeding...expectations. How can they rank Ben and Parris very highly? They hardly played.
Having the early picks exceeding expectations takes you closer to the SB than having your 4th and 5th rounders exceeding expectations. JMO.
"One of the top free agents in 2020 will be Seattle Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, and Clowney has stated a team's likelihood of Super Bowl contention is a key factor for his signing. WalterFootball.com has learned from league sources that the Indianapolis Colts are one of the teams are expected to make a run at signing Clowney. The Colts have a ton of salary cap space and money to spend, and they could use an impactful player on their defensive line. Clowney would also be a great scheme fit in Matt Eberflus' defense. Signing with Indianapolis would also give Clowney the opportunity to play the Texans twice per year, and going against his former team could be a nice perk to signing with Indianapolis. There could be a competitive market for Clowney, and his preference for Super Bowl contenders could rule out some teams, but sources tell me the Colts are going to be a team in serious pursuit of the star defensive end."
Would not hate this. Chris Jones would be my first preference. Would allow Colts to address other needs in the draft.
I definitely agree with that last, but I will say that I'm still convinced that Jacoby Brissett is better than the fans here let on. The guy was held back to at least some extent in the second half by a wave of injuries to key receivers. We went into several games with Zach Pascal as our WR1. I like pascal as a WR4, but he can't get separation against elite defensive backs.
I saw what Brissett could do when he had a healthy receiving unit in the first half, and it was pretty good. Let's not forget that before the wheels fell off we were 6-2 at the half and Brissett was among the league leaders in touchdowns. That went away when our receivers went away, which should come as a surprise to exactly no one.
We are WAY better than our 2019 record suggests we are.
