Love Becton. 6'8 Tackle that dominates the trenches. Had Bredeson in my mock. Think he goes before the 4th. Pretty decent overall if Tua falls. Is it summer in Australia mate?

Love Becton and Johnson! I'm not sold on Tua, but I'm not opposed. Lawrence projects more to a 5T in a 3-4 than a 1T or 3T in our scheme.

 

For DT, I'm a big fan of Neville Gallimore. Dude is an absolute beast of a 1T, which we badly need.

How are people not sold on Tua? Lol what? Go study that film or do a Google search for anyone that does study film (for a living) and you see nothing but high praise. There was a reason that he's been the consensus #1 pick in this year's draft for the last 18 months. The only thing keeping him from being neck and neck with Joe Burrow for the #1 overall pick is his injury. That alone should tell you how dynamic a player he is, Joe Burrow is playing out of his mind right now, and has for the entire season basically, but Tua has been doing this for years. It's not like he has done it in the Pac-12 or MAC, he's been dominating SEC defenses, chock full of future pros. Tua is legit, if we have any chance at -a healthy- Tua, we have to make that move.

Absolutely...........

 

Tua would be an awesome pickup... he wont get past Miami and Chargers

Summer here--major bushfires in every state--here in NSW we have fires covering an area half the size of California

No way do I go near Tua. There is a possibility that 3 of these wr's go in the 1st round.  He has been injured way to much for me to even look at drafting him. He is fragile and u think that he will all of sudden be injury free in the NFL?  They r stronger and faster. History tells me he will not make it thru a season.

Get another QB besides Tua, preferably Fromm and include a top 5 RB.

I see that you post a great deal on Fromm

 

I have watched some tape on him and, and havent been all that impressed.

 

I see a J.A.G. (Just another guy)

 

The scouts, so far havent put him in with the top 3-4 QBs coming out

 

I dont see the pro arm strength

 

He seems accurate enough, and he is a locker room leader.

Part of his injuries come from making him another RB on more plays

 

He takes hits that he shouldnt

 

When he sets up in the pocket, he has a FAST release, is amazingly accurate, great touch, and is a leader

 

If he slides past Miami (If they fall in love with Herbert) he is someone that I would trade picks for.

After having a franchise QB retire because he got tired of rehabbing multiple injuries, I can’t see the front office drafting a QB with injury concerns.

 

It's football man, how many QB's don't miss time due to injury? Very few. Tua actually hadn't missed a game due to injury up to this year, he had the ankle injury around the Tennessee game and really the hip was probably due to limited mobility from the ankle injury, he wouldn't have been playing if the stakes weren't so high. 

 

People need to realize that with the type of injury Tua sustained (the hip injury) as long as corrective measures were taken within 6 hours -and they were- the chances of them effecting him going forward are around 5% (according to specialists). I hope teams do shy away from Tua, and the Colts land him, man that would be a steal and we have Jacoby to play in the meantime. Dream scenario. 

 

I'd take Tua over Burrow to start an NFL Franchise, and I'm not alone in that sentiment, there are many who feel this way.

Since Tua is left handed, wouldn't our tackles have to be flipped? since the blind side would be on Braden Smith's side.  That would change the blocking scheme wouldn't it?  I haven't seen anyone mention that on the site.

No, that's not really how it works. A RT is a RT regardless of the quarterbacks preference. They've generally been playing that position most of their lives, and while the switch from one position on the line to another isn't like a WR going to RB, it's still difficult. If they do land Tua, maybe they can sign Conklin in FA and draft some guys (WRs) from a loaded pool in 2020. 

 

I'm all in on Tua, kid is the best QB in this class and it isn't particularly close for me. I just hope that he slides far enough for us to have a chance.

    • Can you think of a recent example where a team won with that formula?  I can’t.
    • Now football changes.  CB appears to be attempting to return to an 80s style of football.        Walsh West coast really with a heavier emphasis on the run,   Short stuff and crossing routes and pass catchers in the backfield.  Walsh’s teams ran a lot more than many realize likely, but compared to other teams of the era they were “pass heavy”.   this might work.  I just think the rules of today’s game make it more expedient to throw the ball.  Can’t hit the QB or the receivers.  Tight secondary reffing.   It’s kinda like baseball IMO, found out the best way to score runs was to take a lot of pitches and swing as hard as you can trying to hit everything out of the stadium like our dads told us not to.  
    • I voted Yes to all 3. It starts up front, if a team has a great O.Line even with a good QB you can win a SB. The QB has to be at least good obviously but with a great O.Line your run game is usually good as well.
    • I don’t think it’s gonna work out. It’s too much leaving not enough for other positions.  Linemen neither score nor prevent TDS.     if you have a great QB on a rookie contract, it could be ultimately successful IMO.  Otherwise I don’t see it.   I want a strong line, when you look at the list of spending, the best SB caliber teams arent on it.     TENN is not SB caliber.  They had a nice run last year but were in tenuous playoff position at the end of the year.   BUFF maybe, but they are towards the bottom of the list.  And Allen won’t be on a rookie contract much longer.   spending that much will make likely 2 things: 1.  We will be at least good offensively. 2.  We will not be a good enough team on D and at skill positions to be championship caliber.
    • I think the Fan will get indicted after looking at the video. Regarding our discussion, it depends on the situation to how I really think about this. If for some reason lets say a son and his father get into a fight. The father hits the son and a witness calls the police and the police have to do a report but the son doesn't want to press charges, IMO it should be over and done with if it was a one time thing. Who wants to press charges against their father?? A Grand Jury could though then it creates all kinds of family problems. I am surprised the Rockies fan that got punched doesn't want to pursue though, it was a stranger that hit him.
