Bosa on Buckner, "Leaves void in SF DL"

Recommended Posts

Buckner stinks and is overrated.   He won't even be starting halfway through the season.  

 

 

Just trying to say the complete opposite of what will be true.  

 

 

 

 

:D

On the "opposite" thing.   

How would a full day of only opposite posts go over on a forum like this one.     It would be tough to get your head around.

For a guy that values draft picks in Ballard, you had to step back and evaluate why he would give up a first rounder, pick No.13 for Buckner. Once you do that, the answer will be clear. Plus, with this Covid-19 stuff and all, I am not sure it is going to be easy for rookie DTs to ramp up their learning curve either.

 

I always felt that with the combo blocks and greater strength of NFL guards in the middle, the DT position ROI from the draft tends to wait longer than the DE position where more often than not, until you make them pay consistently, the rookie DE gets 1-on-1s way more against quicker but not as big NFL OL. The flip side is also true, where you find rookie OTs played more than rookie OGs due to the extra communication and strength needed inside, our Big Q is an exception, not the norm. That is why it will take 2-3 years for good ROI on the DT position from the draft and the ROI tends to be faster with the DE position, IMO (both Bosas, our own Freeney etc.).

 

Long way to explain "Buckner was so worth it." :)

Good thinking. Most of the things people say on this forum are flat out wrong, so let's use some reverse psychology.

Ha ha.  Good stuff folks.

 

I think the Colts took a step back this offseason.   They will probably finish around 6-10 at best.   I can't believe they didn't sure up their running game.

Thing with Buckner is he's not an elite pass rusher (he's a top 3rd of the league type).  The guy gets mentioned with Aaron Donald but he's not in his class in pressures and there's a 4 year track record to demonstrate that.  Also the other concern is simply paying a DT big money and the question of whether it's wise.  So it's not like the trade was a slam dunk especially when the 9ers ended up with Kinlaw as compensation.

 

But in the huddle it's about more than stats.  His leadership is off the charts and the guy is very tough mentally.  And I'm a big fan of players who can play the run.  Donald for example for as amazing as he is tends to open holes at times for offenses in the run game.  Buckner won't do that.  He'll manhandle his assignment and won't win as often but snap to snap you get great consistency.

 

Colts basically elected to pay a DT to ensure they know what they're getting, vice rolling the dice on a guy who will be cheaper on a rookie deal and maybe better.  Hard to fault that move even if I do have reservations on paying DTs.

    • Your opinion is wrong though.   Colts had 7th best Run Defense in the league last year.   https://www.footballdb.com/stats/teamstat.html?group=D&cat=T&sort=rushypg
    • The 2021 draft is going to be such a mess with college conferences cancelling seasons. Some are moving seasons to spring then going to expect them to play again in the fall. How many will opt out of the spring session and only play fall. What about guys who red one more year removed from HS to be eligible fir the draft. Will it force guys like Trevor Lawrence to stay in school a extra year. I am not sure how a draft will even be able to ge done in 2021. A lot of players are going to be losing a lot of money if they opt out and enter the draft. 
    • LOL. Did you watch any of the games last season?   Also, Okereke is 6-1, 235 lbs, basically the same size as Patrick Willis and Luke Keuchly, except with longer arms and also runs a 4.58 40. I’d take the increased arm length and athleticism over 0.0001 centimeters in height any day. 
    • I think S depth may trump OL depth right now.  Hooker's battled injuries most of his career and the fact he wasn't extended and given some of Ballard's pressers (basically saying Hooker's play dropped off throughout the year in 2019 and he wasn't playing to his level of expectations) and the fact we drafted Blackmon in Rd 3 lead me to believe the FO/Coaching Staff is getting ready to move on from him.     Willis played well as a rookie, but I still see him as a guy who is just about at his ceiling given his limited athleticism.  Rutledge looks like a playmaker but he went undrafted for a reason and he's a rookie coming from a small school, so it'd be hard to expect him to adjust to the NFL right away, especially given this weird off season.  I like Odum more as a STer than a full-time starting safety should we have an injury to Hooker or Willis. Then Tell, while I don't blame him, opting out, IMO, was a big blow to our entire secondary as he was developing nicely at CB but has the versatility to play S if needed (I don't know any of our current corners have that ability, maybe Rhodes).     OL depth is still concerning, but it sounds like Pinter is really impressing coaches as a rookie and I think Clark is versatile enough to be a solid stop gap at G or T if needed.  Hopefully Patterson is back to full health as a backup C (sounds like Big Q or Pinter would be next in line at C if needed).  I guess, I think we're so strong with our starting OL (with Glowinski being the weak link, but not really that weak of a link) that I feel like a single replacement there would not be as devastating to one of our starting S going down right now.  Regardless, it'd be nice to have a few more guys competing across the OL.
    • It has to be odd signing FAs now, since teams aren't allowed to work them out.  I guess one would hope that these guys have been keeping themselves in shape throughout the offseason, but it'd still be nice to be able to work them out before signing them.   Safety now is, IMO, the team's biggest concern.  I think we're fine w/ Hooker and Willis as starters, though Hooker's had injury issues throughout his time in the NFL (and prior).  I like Odum, but like him more as a STer than a guy we have to rely on being a starter for an extended time if one of our top 2 go down.  Then Blackmon is still on the injured list, and I don't expect him to be full strength to the middle of the season (if not later).  The UDFA, Rutledge, was a playmaker but from a small school and went undrafted for a reason, so I'm not too sure that we should expect anything out of him in terms of being reliable if he had to play a lot of minutes.   Geathers is still a FA and I know Ballard really seemed to like him.  I'm wondering if him not being signed or brought up in discussion is a health issue (i.e., can't pass a physical), a major health concern (given his injury history), demanding too much $, or if the team has simply moved on from him.    Personally, I like the fact we're looking at Tavon Wilson, he's a former 2nd round draft pick who had his best NFL year last season, starting 13 games in Detroit and recording 98 tackles, 2 fumble recovers and 5 passes defended.
