I like the rotation at DT, but Buckner will get double teams on every play if it's a JAG at the other position.


DT - Buckner - Autry - Lewis

DT - Stewart - Coley

 

I wouldn't mind if we got one of the following players to do the dirty work that don't end up on the stat sheet; at the same time, they likely won't command a lot of money.

 

A'Shawn Robinson - only concern is that signing him will drastically make our team older instead of younger. :lol:hahalmao

 

Linval Joseph - upgraded Al Woods, who Ballard likely regretted not re-signing last season.

 

Damon Harrison - more beef. Limited pass rush ability but can throw around and rag doll any center.

 

Maliek Collins - good combination of size and speed. As I was typing this post, he signed with the Raiders.

That's the run set. The pass set will be Buckner and Autry.

And if Bucker is getting doubled, that means Houston, Autry, and Turay are all singled. And I like our chances... They'll have to try and double both Houston and Buckner, which will open up things for the other two.

Raekwon Davis sounds like possibility. People like Bucky Brooks and Daniel Jeremiah don't have Davis as one of their top 5 defensive tackles. I read that he's had some maturity issues and that he's not really a playmaking defensive player. 

 

 

6'7 312 to go along with Buckner who is the same height. Good luck trying to run through those guys.

Davis peaked as a sophomore and has regressed every season since. His physical traits are enticing, but he just hasn't put it together and developed. Obviously his old DL coach couldn't get it out of him, so I'm not sure he could do that here. Maybe the change in scheme could help though.

Hi yal, new to the forum... wanted to start a topic in Free agency draft section but cant figure out how to do anything but reply to a topic already started. 

 

It is in line with this topic though and questioning if we NEED to add more (in FA)

 

Now that we’ve acquired Rivers, should we try n add more receiving targets in FA?

 

if so, who do u like? and at what cost and contract length? 

 

anderson, perriman, sanders,

agohlor, funchess? 

 

Or a tight end? maybe D. walker? who else?

 

sorry if this is out of place btw. gota figure out how to create a topic/thread

I wouldn't mind taking a post-hype flyer on A'Shawn Robinson. He's only 25...and was highly touted coming out of Bama. He's also tall with long arms...much like Buckner.

 

The guy I would love to get though is Billings. He got hurt his rookie season...but has started to come into his own. He's also only 25.

 

Stewart played better last season...but Billings would create good competition and depth. Robinson as well.

I actually think the hole that has opened up is DE though. Colts have Houston, Turay, Banogu and Muhammad.

 

I don't expect a huge signing...but perhaps a vet FA to step in and replace Sheard. IF they are truly wanting to compete right now...someone like Griffen would be a great pickup for a 1-2 year deal.

This. Davis is a guy that I hope we avoid in the draft because I think whoever winds up with him is always going to have higher hopes than production.

I think Buckner's roll is TO draw the double teams. Even triple teams.

Yep.......  He wasnt dominating as he was 2 years ago

 

He may slide more

 

Wit our dollars spent so far, we have $$ to spend... but not much.......

 

We still need to sign rookies, but without having to pay a first, it will take less

 

IMHO.......  We still need

 

1 WR - I think MIMs will still be on the board, with the 5 other excellent WRs in front of him

1 TE - This has become a big need, for this year 

I could see us going WR/TE with first 2 picks

 

1 OT for depth / future starter

1 CB for depth / future starter

From the video I saw, Buckner was double-teamed a lot and still made plays.  As someone said, if he's double-teamed, that opens things up for our other DL.  But, adding another DT wouldn't hurt, if one can be had for the right price to compliment Buckner.

    • @twfish You are still on the clock for the Packers.   Then @WarGhost21 will be on for the Chiefs.   After that, this 2021 Gavin Mock Draft will wrap up with @John Hammonds for the SB Champs. 
    • Yes. They did have the most opt-outs. I think most of them are coming back this year which will help if Bill decides to keep them or release them. Many of them are older and are on big contracts so it will be interesting to see what they do.   Brady always gave him the luxury of building a middle class team because he could elevate the talent. It will be much more difficult now without the QB. Perhaps some of our Pats posters could shed light on what they will do at QB. I saw they were not in on Wentz at all and they are not in on Watson or Wilson either so I wonder if they are thinking Cam again?  The QB is what did them in the most last year. Cam just didn't have it at all.    BTW, I have been meaning to tell you for some time that I really enjoy your posts a lot. I don't post a ton up here but I do read the site most days and I always enjoy your takes. You really put a lot of thought and solid reasoning behind your points. I enjoy that. 
    • I don’t know why you felt the need to go there, but you did.   This is several bridges too far from reality.   Good luck selling this to anyone.    Astonishing.   
    • Part of the reason the Pats roster looked so thin, isn’t just because they let Brady go.   8 players, including key staters like LB Dont’a Hightower, S Patrick Chung, OT Marcus Cannon and WR Marqise Lee all sat out last year due to Covid.    I believe New England list more players sitting out than any other team. 
    • That is not the narrative anymore though. This season was not just about Brady winning and Bill losing, it was about how the teams looked all year. The Tampa team morphed into looking like the Patriot teams. They went from one of the most penalized teams last year to middle of the pack this year. Their offense which was always talented, all of a sudden became clutch especially in the post-season and their defense transformed from a very good defense all season to a dominant defense in the post-season which was also reminiscent of the Pats teams.  On the flip side, the Patriots looked out of sorts all season. Belichick became an excuse machine blaming the cap, Covid, practice time, etc as reasons for their sub-par season which he had never done in the past.   In short, the Patriot Way appears to have really been the Brady Way and that is what Bill is needing to disprove this upcoming season to change the narrative.
