Ballard for two guys that will contribute day one.    

By the end of today, Goodell will be reading the picks from his bed

Buckner is a freakin all-pro. Relax.

Love it

Ballard may have gotten it backwards.  The trade up looks like he was eager to get Swift of Taylor, but took a WR.  

 

Probably could have gotten Swift at 34 and Claypool at 44.  Swift is the better back, but Taylor is definitely bigger.

This pick makes sense for me for two reasons.

 

1. Mack is not a 3 down back and wont be re-signed next year. He doesn't catch or is not a powerful short yardage back.

 

2. The RB class next year is not supposed to be good.

 

 

 

Travis Etienne, Chubba Hubbard, and Najee Harris would disagree with your second reason.

Honestly, I am not sure how Mack is still on the team.  They will push for Taylor to start

Dude, Mack was 11th in yards last year, and 9th in av/game. Let's stop acting like he's a castaway jag....

Now we need to trade Mack while we're can get something for him. No extension for Mack. Dolphins need a back and Marlin is a Florida guy. 

You need two. Mack isn’t going anywhere. He will finish his contract.

Hubbard and Harris I think are more 3rd round prospects imo. Solid players but Taylor is better than all three. 

 

I think we would have been looking for a bell cow RB next year.

He has about 18 career fumbles...   15 of them lost.   But coaches think they can coach it out of the player. 

He's also got a bunch of carries.  I think he was a three year starter, or heavy contributor.  Wonder what the actual fumble per touch was.

Not saying I completely hate the Taylor pick, but Etienne would have been my number one running back this year ahead of Swift for sure.

 

I would have probably put Chubba in front of Jonathan Taylor too honestly.

I really hope Taylor catches passes.

 

He does.  WI doesn't do it that much, but he's supposed to do it well.

 

He can block.  He can take it to the house.  He can catch.  Now Rivers has the opportunity to audible into any play he wants and isn't limited by who is in the backfield.

I'm not following the cablecast: did Ballard move up after the Texans got Blacklock or before?

Yeah, I'm not sure.  It just looks like he gave up a lot for the three spots, but maybe not.

Looks like a panic move?

Or Ballard just was in love, and though another team was going to grab a RB. 

Just not overly happy as he hasn't been a big part of the passing game. 

Hope he can catch.

Win-now mode is def in full effect.  When you spend your first 2 picks on a perfect-fit WR2 and a franchise RB it's a full commitment.  

 

We may have been able to move down for Pittman, but with Higgins starting the waterfall there was no way to know how that would have gone down.  Taylor was absolutely worth the move-up in that spot.  You could almost hear Doug Marrone do the Homer Simpson "DOH!" when Indy's pick came in.  Instead of Taylor shredding us for the next 5 years, he'll be dishing it out on our behalf.

    • I have no idea what to do with measurements and athletic testing from players this year. Do you ignore them altogether? How do you know which ones are real'ish?      
    • In reality they are probably right to point out that most GMs in the league don't have long enough track record to be free of small sample bias one way or the other. It's very likely if you gave every GM 100 drafts, their draft success will tend to converge toward the average. BTW, I wonder where Grigson would be on those graphs. I would guess pretty high thanks to drafting Luck and TY Hilton(similar to HOU in this graph thanks to Deshaun Watson). Just another reminder that even though those graphs might be useful in some cases you have to keep in mind their limitations and biases.
    • Doug...  these anti-Watson rants have gone from bad to worse.   Other posters here have noted you make it sound personal.   You have mischaracterized most everything that has happened.   Watson has a lot of support around the NFL.   I’d say far more support than dont.   I don’t pretend to know how this is going to finish?   But I hope you can lower the temperature here...   I don’t think it’s helpful.   Just my two cents...     
    • Yeah, if Miller or Haeg had the WHOLE resume and the talent of Godwin maybe we should. Worth pointing out that this was probably the worst stretch of Godwin's career (and it was mainly thanks to drops). I think he had like 7 drops in the playoffs while never having more than 2 in a whole season previously. I would personally consider that a freaky happenstance, and trust the much bigger sample of him being a very reliable catcher of the football. Also, it's not me that's taken it here. YOU just did.   I've already pointed out several times that this is NOT my 'take', but rather a guess on part of the explanation on the Bucs place in those graphs. So why do you keep going with this? At this point I am considering this bad faith exchange on your part. On the second part - yes, it would have to be taken in consideration(if they were up for trade and tied in similar contracts, rather than Godwin being a FA). BTW Godwin is one of the players we should consider breaking Ballard's bank on this FA. Insert Whynothaveboth.gif Agree with this. Evans is both better and more valuable than Godwin. Worth pointing out that both Superbowl teams had premier pass catching weapons as it relates to our discussion on the value of the position.  
    • Without contact?   I don’t think that’s true.   His knee injury this year was a helmet to his knee while his foot was planted.   He had 3-4 injuries his rookie year, I think only the foot injury was non contact.     Campbell had no significant injuries in college.  Think he played 38-39 games in three years.
