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.

    • That sounds good.    I would be fine with 6-8 pm and 9-11 pm ET with a 5 minute window for picks, so 16 picks should be done in 120 minutes. It would be like the real draft starting Day 3, where they get only 5 minutes between picks.     Would you have time around the beginning of April to help moderate this along with me? If it is a small window of time, it is a smaller time commitment on my front and yours, so I like this idea.   I can ask @NFLfan @csmopar and @danlhart87 again if they would be willing to make themselves available for those small windows of time thus giving us plenty of options. Let us bring this thread back up then.
    • First of all, I'd say bad fit for us. He's a 3-4 DE. In our system he'd be a tweener, or maybe even a 3T.  Great against the run, average vs the pass. Very solid 3 down guy overall in a 3-4.   IMO, even if he was a fit, we don't need run D help, and he'd be too expensive. Overall just not the benefit and value we need.    
    • Here's what we did on another board a few years ago. Worked out pretty good. 1 Round per evening 2 windows each night... picks 1-16, and then 17-32 (I think it was 7p-8p and 9-10, but could have been 8-9 and 10-11). That way, guys new pretty much when they needed to be there, and only needed to pay attention for roughly an hour per day. Really not even that long. Also gave the mods some time between windows to tidy up. 3 minute clock hence the "flash" term. If you miss a pick, you drop 5 spots (basically giving them an extra 15 minutes). If they missed it a second time, they get bumped to the end of the round and have up to an hour before the next days round starts. If they miss that, they get best player based on their primary needs.  We had 3 threads going at once, and 3 moderators. One thread for the pick announcements and general comments, one with a constantly updated order and big board, and one to manage trades. The big board management was great in terms of keeping it going and checking off who is gone. We also published team needs, but I can't remember if we tracked it except for using it when folks missed their window. Only trades allowed are pick for pick(s) so very little approval needed. No picks for existing players (We did the mock post FA fury, I think we started about 2 weeks prior to the draft).
    • I didn't say he could be as good as Leonard. I said pretty clearly that if Leonard was 95/100 That I think Oke's ceiling is about 86-90.    By in which I also added that any team would be alright that that level of play. I think you are misunderstanding. Because we both seem to agree that Oke will more than likely be a pretty darn good player.
