I would think this year's 1st and next year's 1st would allow us to move from 13 to 4 in the draft, and we could keep No.34 and No.44.

 

Polian did give up a 1st rounder for Tony Ugoh, who he thought was a 1st round rated LT, in a trade with the 49ers. That happened due to the sudden retirement of Tarik Glenn after our SB win. At least that happened before the draft, unlike the Andrew Luck retirement, so giving up a future 1st would be something Ballard may not mind if he and Reich are sure about their franchise QB at No.4

Actually, I think he moved up to take Ugoh, BEFORE Glenn announced his retirement.  Don't know if Polian was told privately or not.  The way it went down, I thought that Glenn saw Bill pick his replacement, so Glenn got po, ed and decided to just retire one year early. ( I think his contract had one year left)

 

The issue is whether a team is willing to give up a potentially elite player at 4 to get a BPA at 13 and what would likely be a mid first next year.

Anyone got videos of Jalen Hurts, Jordon Love and Anthony Gordon?

Seems like they are still stretching and warming up.

So, late question, but why isn't Eason at the Senior Bowl?

 

Uh, ok, maybe he's not a senior?

If you leave college after your junior year you must of graduated. Love graduated this month so he was eligible.

Okay, so just for clarity, I'm pretty sure the first person throwing in the video is Anthony Gordon and the second in the white helmet is Jordan Love.

Look at this

 

 

Ugh.....we are GOING to have to move up to get the QB we want. Waiting until the 2nd round to get someone isn’t a promise either as there are teams late in the round that also need QB’s. Hmmmm!!

Yeah we are going to have to move up. The good news is Herbert was impressive too. Could Love impress the lions so much they take in at 3?

^ I'd pick him on day 3 and convert him to a TE in a similar way to how we converted Tell...

If I'm not mistaken... this is Jordan Love throwing the football on that throw... Holy horse manure! Look at that ball placement to the sideline. Can you place that ball any better? That's 45 yards downfield from the opposite hash...

One could only hope that Gordon performs so well, that he ends up causing another QB to drop a bit (*Cough* hopefully Herbert or Love *Cough)

I don't think it would be all surprising if he's starting next year for the team that drafted him..

Here's a dissenting opinion:

 

 

Wish we could watch the practices so we can form our own opinions instead of relying on tons of reporters/analysts/pundits.

There is always a chance Dolphins fall in love with Herbert and Love and skip TUA. With him not being able to showcase anything. Hopefully he gets to work out some before the draft.Then chargers take the other one leaving TUA to us. I just don’t see Ballard taking a injured QB.

At least hand size extrapolation is used for something family friendly. :D

 

Here is an article about why the hand size measurement is an exercise in futility:

 

https://ftw.usatoday.com/2019/02/nfl-combine-kyler-murray-hand-size-doesnt-matter

 

 

I like how they tried to show if there was statistical significance, but they didn't use a good sample they should of used the 32 starting QBs hand sizes to see if there was significance instead of a range of QBs with different hand sizes by using QBs that are not good there are other variables effecting the results

    • Benching him may have hurt his confidence, but Reich could have been honest with him and I'm sure Brissett would have been ok with the news. He just had to tell Brissett he's still hurt, he's currently struggling, and the league has you figured out. Show Brissett his first-half numbers per game compared to his second-half numbers.   Tell Brissett to heal up and work on improving your game while making adjustments. We're out of the playoffs, so we are going with Kelly, and you'll get a chance next year. Simple as that. JB has to learn as well that bad play is not rewarded. That would send a negative message to him and the team.

    • Blue works perfect for children of all ages. I have no problem with a more demented mascot for print and video but Blue is great for the home games.
    • My biggest gripe with Hooker has been when he has had to come up and make some tackles and looked completely incompetent.  I think that can be improved, but his range can't be.  He can cover some serious territory and QB's have to know where he is.   With a projected better rush (and hopefully playing with a lead much of this year) I think Hooker will get 3+ INT's this year.
    • Benching JB would have also crushed his confidence as well...probably even more so.    The only way to navigate it was to put JB on IR due to the knee injury...which would have meant Kelly had to play. But JB wasn't hurt bad enough for that...as both he and Reich have said.    It was a lose-lose situation...that I am sure they didn't see coming back in August.
