I feel like Ravens take Ojulari at 31. Seems like most teams didnt have a 1st round grade on him so far.  Could be Buffalo as well though. Frazier the DC is a Dungy disciple.

The beauty of you....   You made so many mocks, so many predictions, that no matter which player goes to which team, you can correctly say.....   “Called it!”   You've called...   

Here's a mock I did about a month ago. I'd be pumped if this came to fruition.

And the Packers spend a 1st round pick on a DB.  Again.

They blamed their corner for the TB loss.  It was thought of as a bigger need than WR, IMO, despite Rogers whining.

I like Stokes as a player but they REALLY needed a good WR. 
Depth at position though. Very few WR gone so far.


Only ones left are slot WRs though. Might get one on Day 2.

Could Barmore interest them?

Knew they wouldn't draft WR

Rousseau is such a Bills pick. Just like the big slow Iowa kid they drafted last year (name escapes me)

A.J. Epenesa. You're not wrong...

I could see Ojulari or Oweh here.

I didnt see Oweh coming for them but when you look at how fast he is and how they drop their backers in coverage it makes more sense.

He just seemed to be a perfect fit for them.

I don’t think they drafted Oweh to go backwards in coverage.   I think they want that 4.4 speed going forward toward the quarterback.

Damn so no team felt Ojulari was Rd 1 material.

Probably the knee concerns that dropped him. I don't see him making it out if the top 10 picks in the 2nd though.

Nice little ER run to end the 1st. Just shows how much premium is put on the position.

 

Noticeably absent from that run was Ojualri.

 

Apparently the NFL doesn’t share the same viewpoint as @BlueShoe when it comes to ER. Time will tell who was right.

Thats obvious but his speed also allows them to do some creative stuff when they do drop him in coverage bc you know they are for sure. It comes with that scheme. I think they looked at all the different things they could do with him as a whole. They will probably deploy him like Jamie Collins at times.

He spends money on the ones his football guys ask him to spend on. He doesn’t make player decisions like Jerry Jones, far from it. His GM Caldwell might need a fresh look regarding the requests he brings to the owner.

 

Jerry is his own GM too, not the case with Khan.

I understand Chad and I don't mean to offend your personal sensibilities. I just look at how he presents himself it reminds me of a carpet bagger. Spare me the clown act dude. With the exception of their inaugural year and their playoff run a couple years ago, the team is a perennial basement dweller and there is a revolving door in the stadium. Maybe a more apt comparison would have been the Jets. Some owners hire people to do what they want and others hire people to do what is needed.

 

My thing with charity, that's wonderful and all, but your first loyalty should be to the fans who pay through the nose to buy the product being placed in front of them. Any money you're giving to charity or community outreach was someone else's money first. I mean write up a playbill and tell me about this wonderful philanthropy while you soak up that limelight you get every year because there's always a top player associated with your name this time of year, because your team is always awful. It's pretentious as hell. Are we here to sell t-shirts so we can donate more money to your favorite cause or are we here to win football games and make our fans happy?

Now i wonder if we will draft another DE at some point or possibly bring back Houston to go along with the other guys we have.

 

I think there is going to be a run on those tackles... We should probably take one at 54. I would look at Shaka Toney or Malcolm Koonce in the 4th or 5th though.

If I’m not mistaken...   Oweh is somewhat new to football.   He’s learning the game.   If that’s true, I think learning how to do both — going forward and backward while you’re in the NFL is incredibly hard.   My hunch is that they might only ask him to do mostly pass rush his rookie year, and perhaps learn how to drop into coverage more his second year. 
 

Clearly I don’t know and I’m talkin out my rear end.   I’m just thinking out loud.  I just think Oweh is a work in progress, and I wouldn’t overload the kid in his rookie year.  
 

Just my two cents, and your mileage may vary....

According to last minute/day reports there are concerns about his knee - degenerative knee condition. Maybe this is part of the reason.

The other thing I am going to say about my particular distaste for said person is that Jacksonville are the only team in the NFL that plays a home game in London every year. They were going to play two in London in 2020 before COVID hit. You going to tell me that this carpet bagging clown does this for the people of Jacksonville? How do you think say, Steelers fans would feel if Rooney decided to do that to them every year? There would be riots in North Side. Please.

 

Do you see this guy marching into Goodell's office campaigning to rotate the London games among the other 31 teams in the NFL in the spirit of "testing the London market"? No. I wonder why not. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that London has a slightly larger TV market than Jacksonville. I could be wrong here. But personally it just feels like this guy wants to run his team like a circus act. Maybe he can resurrect Barnum and Bailey's and rebrand the stadium so that people know what kind of product to expect.

In the order of my personal preference, I'd be good with any of these 6 OT's in the 2nd round:

 

Liam Eichenberg, Notre Dame

Samuel Cosmi, Texas

Teven Jenkins, Oklahoma State

Walker Little, Stanford
Dillon Radunz, NDSU
Brady Christensen, BYU

Spencer Brown is the guy who intrigues me.  100 RAS score and seems to be a really hard worker.  6’9”  

500 lb bench press

4.94 40 time

34.75 inch arms

31.5 inch vertical

 

Cosmi is a freak too, but Spencer is a larger freak.  Maybe it’s the small school competition that is moving him below the others.   Tommy Doyle and Brady Christensen are two other very athletic tackles.

He reminds me of a slightly larger version of Jared Veldheer.  Moves like a tight end.

If we don’t take an OT today, and Ballard stressed last night we won’t force it....   but if we don’t, then the name everyone needs to focus on is.............

 

Eric Fisher, the former OT for Kansas City before he blew out his Achilles in the AFC Championship game in late January.  Perhaps he’d be ready to go by October or November? 

 

We could sign him as soon as next week and he wouldn’t count against the draft pick compensation formula.

What I would be very happy with tonight is drafting Little at 54 and trading a pick for Ertz.  That would be a successful draft for me.

If Philly’s asking price comes down, you might just get your wish.    Perhaps a 6 instead of a 4?

    • Taking NE and Brady out of this because I think what they did was unique.   My observation is that the teams with the elite QB have more success BEFORE that QB gets paid his contract than after he gets paid.   SB teams have won, IMO, because they have gotten elite play from some players at the same time not compensating those players for the elite play.  They produce more than what the team pays them that season.   SEA was better when Russell Wilson was playing near elite QB before his contract. PITT was better when Ben was younger not being paid. I know injuries played a part, but the early Grigson Luck years were much better for the Colts than the $125M years. KC rode an elite Mahomes on a rookie contract to domination over recent seasons. BUFF is enjoying Allen's low pay day relative to his talent and play.  What will happen to them when he gets paid?   (and another version of that formula, even though Denver paid PM, they got a huge boost from an elite Von Miller playing an impactful position on a cheap rookie contract)   We made our bed when we picked a G at 6, and will pay him elite Olineman money.  I don't see where we are going to be putting the ball in our QBs hands every play and ask him to win the game when we are paying a G to also run block at an elite level.  We will probably always be more of a running team than the average playoff team because of our investment in our G.  Taking the ball out of our QBs hands means that we will not also be able to afford that top guy.   Maybe we should have taken Fields and hoped he gave us elite play on the cheap before we'd have to decide between him and Nelson.   
    • I know what a strange baseball season so far. The Cubs have a good team overall, we are like all the other good teams in the NL basically. We have our ups and downs but that is baseball with a 162 game season. The only team in the NL right now that can say they have played great are the Giants at 45-25. Looking at all the good teams in the NL, they are all 8 games above .500 with the exception of the Dodgers who are 42-27. Cubs are 39-31, Padres 40-32, and Mets 35-27. So the other teams fans feel our misery when a loss happens as well. We really need to just start playing more consistent. It needs to start tomorrow with the Marlins who we are much better than.   If someone told me before the season started that we would be in 1st place in the NL Central through 70 games on June 19th, I would take it. That is the extreme positive way to look at this.
    • Who wouldve guessed that the only win for NL Central tonight would be the Pirates beating the Indians 
    • Brewers just lost to the Rockies again , we are still in 1st place in the NL Central. Cards lost as well and the Reds are down 5-2 to the Padres.
    • It was that comebacker. That seemed to effect his play after. Hopefully he's alright and returns back to before
