Every year Chris Simms has a completely different take on pretty much....   everything.

 

Especially at quarterback.  
 

He almost always goes against conventional wisdom.   And I’m ok with that.   But sometimes I get a sense he's different just so that he can stand out in a crowd.   Maybe it’s just me?
 

I’ll see if I can try to find similar articles about QBs in previous years.

Yeah he does this every year, my list would be:

1. Lawrence

2. Wilson

3. I flip flop on Lance and Fields, I think that is even (3/4.)

5. Jones

He’s a contrarian for the sake of being a contrarian. I think people just get bored around this time too. After awhile there’s usually an established consensus on most things; who the best QB is, who is going number 1 overall, who the best defensive player is, positional rankings, etc...

 

Sometimes I think people get bored with the consensus and just go against the grain to create néw content. How can you seriously have Kellon Mond over Justin Fields and Trey Lance?

Sims has been pretty good actually. So good in fact that I won't judge him on this until it plays out over the coming years. But as a general sense I'm not yet convinced on Wilson, but I do agree that Mond seems a bit underrated. One thing I like about Sims is that when he is wrong though, he doesn't make excuses. He just admits he was wrong. But when it comes to ranking QBs over the last few years he's been pretty good.

He’s an expert at evaluating QBs not one of the media talking heads that all say the same thing. I bet you thought he was crazy in 2018 when he ranked Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen above mayfield Darnold and Rosen. Or last year when he had Herbert above Tua.

His criticisms of Fields mechanics are warranted which is why he ranked him so low. Wilson is the most accurate QB and throws the prettiest ball so it’s not out of the realm of possibility that he’s better than Lawrence.

His comps are

Wilson -> Mahomes, Rodgers

Lawrence -> Luck, Elway

    • I would hope not. Especially, if your drafting folks in the 1st and 2nd Rd. I expect most 1st Rd players to contribute as rookies. 2nd Rd picks, should be starting or heavily contributing by year two IMO. You don’t draft guys in the 1st or 2nd rounds, that take 3-4 years to develop. If, they take that long, call it what it is, a bad pick.     
    • Here's where things stand, 9 days before the draft. Updates since my 3/26 post are bolded: (dollars rounded a bit)   Unrestricted free agents signed from other teams DE Isaac Rochell (former Charger) OT Sam Tevi (former Charger) OT Julién Davenport (former Dolphin) G Chris Reed (former Panther)   Colts unrestricted free agents re-signed RB Marlon Mack (1-yr, $2M) CB Xavier Rhodes (1-yr, $6.5M) WR T.Y. Hilton (1-yr, $10M, $8M guaranteed) C Joey Hunt (1-yr, $1M) DE Al-Quadin Muhammad (1-yr, $3.4M) CB T.J. Carrie (1-yr, $2M)   Colts restricted free agents re-signed S George Odum (right of first refusal, $2.1M) WR Zach Pascal (2nd round, $3.4M)   Colts restricted free agents tendered TE Mo Alie-Cox (2nd round, $3.4M, pending)   Colts exclusive rights free agents re-signed WR Ashton Dulin (1-yr extension) DT Taylor Stallworth (1-yr extension)   Acquired via trade QB Carson Wentz (from Eagles for 2 draft picks)   Claimed from other teams DT Andrew Brown (from Texans via waivers)   Colts unrestricted free agents signed by other teams DT Denico Autry (to the Titans, 3-yr, $21.5M, $9M guaranteed) QB Jacoby Brissett (to the Dolphins, 1-yr, $5M, fully guaranteed) LB Anthony Walker (to the Browns, 1-yr, $3.5M) S Tavon Wilson (to the 49ers, 1-yr, $1M)   Colts restricted Free Agents signed by other teams (not tendered by Colts) CB Tremon Smith (to the Texans, 1-yr, $1M)   Remaining unrestricted free agents TE Trey Burton OT Le’Raven Clark OT Chaz Green S Malik Hooker DE Justin Houston   Retirements QB Philip Rivers OT Anthony Castonzo   Reserve/Futures Contracts Defense CB Andre Chachere CB Roderic Teamer CB Will Sunderland DT Chris Williams DT Kameron Cline DT Rob Windsor S Ibraheim Campbell Offense G Jake Eldrenkamp G Sam Jones OT Carter O’Donnell RB Darius Anderson RB Paul Perkins TE Andrew Vollert TE Farrod Green WR Quartney Davis Special Teams P Austin Rehkow   Most data for this list was obtained from https://coltswire.usatoday.com/.
    • But in what is called a weak DE draft class, how much if any will a 1st or especially a 2nd round pick improve the DE group??
