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.

    • I think September is very optimistic. And even if he is, the rust from 9 months will still need to shake off. If he can give us late season snaps I'll be very happy.   Yup, absolutely loved the Paye pickup. Great kid even if he was a Wolverine lol. My stack of the top Edges went pretty close to what I predicted, the only exception is Tryon taken in the 1st before Ojulari.    If IIRC, I had Paye, Philps, Oweh, Rousseau, and Ojulari.  It went Philips, Paye, Oweh, Rousseau, Tryon, and then Ojulari.   IMO, Paye and Oweh have the highest ceilings, but any of my top 5 could end up being elite. I really like Oweh too. Pure freak. But I like Paye's ceiling + personality/character more.     I wanted a LT, but didn't think we'd take one in the 1st. Never did.   I am surprised though they didn't make a move to go up a few after Radunz and Cosmi dropped so close to 54. It wouldn't have cost us much to move up 5 spots from 54.    I also would have taken a couple that were still available at 54.    I'm fine with Fisher if his medical checks out, but that's a big if at this point. Leno is probably the safer option, but likely we'll want more dollars and years. I'd prefer Okung on a 1 or 2 year deal I think. 
    • Thank you! I have always liked the Mets broadcasters, TV ones as well as the radio guys. I used to listen to radio broadcasts with the legendary Bob Murphy and the future HoF broadcaster Gary Cohen. I appreciated them a lot because they were never homer-ish. They spoke glowingly about opposing players and coaches. I knew all the players back then. It is different now but I do like the tv broadcasters, one of which is the aforementioned Gary Cohen and former Mets Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling. They are great!
    • What a nerve wracking game, Cubs pull it out in 11 Innings 6-5 and sweep the Dodgers. These were the kind of games we used to win, huge win. Cubs are now only 3 games out of 1st place behind the Cards in the NL Central, NL Central looks like this after tonight's play:   1. Cards 18-13 2. Brewers 17-14 (1 back) - they have lost 4 in a now 3. Cubs 15-16 (3 back) - have won 3 in a row, almost back to .500 4. Reds 14-15 (3 back) 5. Pirates 13-17 (4.5 back)   I am hoping this is a start of something good, we will see?
    • RIZZO WALKS IT OFF IN THE 11th!!!!! Cubs sweep the Dodgers!!!! Let’s keep the wins coming boys!!!!  
    • Best 20 minutes I have seen on youtube for a long time. Let's freaking go!!!!!!!!!!!!!
