Alright, lets make this fun.

 

With the 133rd pick of the 2022 NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts select, Bailey Zappe, QB, Western Kentucky.

 

The Colts get the heir apparent to Matt Ryan that they can develop for two years behind him.

He went to the High School of the city I lived in for 20 years

He is from Texas?

 

A guy who went to elementary school with me and was my sister's classmate was drafted in the second round by my Minnesota Vikings many moons ago. He turned out to be a bust. My parents were friends of his father.

@RNGDShobby You are on the clock for Detroit.

 

@Jared Cisneros, who is this guy that you draft as the future QBOTF?

https://thedraftnetwork.com/player/bailey-zappe

 

Here's a detailed explanation of him. In my opinion, he is a better Sam Elingher. Played at a small school, but lots of potential. Needs a couple years of development. Has the leadership qualities and ability to succeed in the NFL though.

With the 139th pick in the 2022 Gavin Mock Draft, the Baltimore Ravens select:

 

Tyquan Thornton, WR, Baylor

 

A massive combine standout, Thornton will be given a shot to showcase his speed in one of the fastest offenses in football.

 

@stitches is up for the Packers!

I had to do it.

 

With the 141st pick in the 2022, the Baltimore Ravens select the heir apparent to longtime special-teams standout Sam Koch, the Punt God himself:

 

Matt Araiaza, P, San Diego State

 

I don't feel like I need to go into much explanation about Araiaza. The man is a living highlight reel at the least respected position in football. Move over, Justin Tucker. The title of best leg on the roster and in the entire league is now up for debate!

 

@John Hammonds Take it away with the Rams!

The name reminds me of former Vikings RB/FB Matt Aziata

I don't think this guy's been picked yet.  And I don't know why not.

 

Rams pick:  Jelani Woods, TE, Virginia

 

I believe he was. Did I forget to remove him?

He is no longer on the Big Board. He was selected by @Clem-Dog at #81, I believe.

Titans pick Max Mitchell OT Louisiana 

 

You have one more pick for the Titans. I will post this one as the earlier pick. You can choose Mr. Irrelevant for this draft (last player in this draft.)

 

Thank you!

@RollerColt Do you or your father follow college football? Do you follow the NFL draft? If so, what do you or your dad think about the players that Stitches drafted for the Bengals in this Gavin Mock Draft?

 

By the way, I don't know if you follow the Cincinnati college football team. At least 6 of their players were drafted. I did not realize Cincinnati had become a football powerhouse. Years ago they were among the best in college basketball under Coach Bob Huggins.

We used to rabidly follow cfb, but that was back when I was in college so it made sense haha. Yeah Cincy has really amped up their recruiting process. 

 

@stitches did a great job! Any continued depth and help on the oline to protect Joe is a win. And getting an EDGE is needed. One of the key reasons we lost in the Super Bowl was lack of pressure on Stafford in the 4th quarter. Having another motor in the lineup to keep the pass rush fresh is needed.

    • Love Prior and Williams as well.   I am familiar with that Raw clip. Yeah it came out when I was like 6 or 7.  It is very Raw. Eddie didn't play games.   But I must still be missing something as I don't know what that has to do with anything that you have seen in my post.?   As stated, I make a concerted effort to not claim to of been right about something after the fact and own up to my mistakes. Definitely am not going around saying it wasn't me, if I get caught being wrong.?   Anyway, like I said, I am sure I still have some post that slip through that seem way. Even with making an effort to not do so.   Still you have "Wasn't me" surrounding the statement  "But I saw it in one of your post"   So trying to figure out how to interpret that. 1. You saw me saying it wasn't me? 2. You saw me owning up to my mistakes? 3. You saw me post about respecting people more when they own their mistakes, instead of coming back after the fact claiming to be right?(which I know I have said on here multiple times)   Idk? Feeling like an * that it's had to be explained to me twice already(42itus and you) and will need a third attempt. Plus it's relevance to my signature? Lol. Damn it's only 3 in the morning. Need to crash back out for a few.   3's the magic number. 3 ways to interpret, 3 explanations and 3am.     I do lke the spelled out "eight seven", if I must say.
    • That's because QB is MUCH more more important position and returns much better value.    Depends on what you consider bust and what you consider hit. For example, some people don't consider QBs a hit unless they are perennial all pros and pro-bowlers, but consider solid but unremarkable linemen as hits. Example - is Ryan Kelly a hit? Most would say yes, but by the same measures players like Mitch Trubisky or Marcus Mariota or Carson Wentz should be considered hits too. There are studies done by some outlets that set a standard and judge it by that standard and the long-term results show very similar hit and bust rates for all positions in the same ranges in the draft. Now there are some slight deviations(for example, OL success rate in the 1st is higher than other positions, but again we are talking about something like 55% vs 45% hit rate. I have posted those here before... I need to search for it again... will post later if I find it.    Again, you are assuming the picks you make will pan out. In reality of the 2 extra picks you give up to move up in the draft for QB, 1 would very likely bust completely and the second one might be solid starter. Hell. lets assume you draft 2 very good players. You still have no long-term QB and sooner or later you will have to invest in that position in order to secure it long-term. So, congrats! You didn't give 2 extra picks this year. You will need to give them next year or the year after or the year after. Or ...you will need to suck and not need to give the extra picks. In which case - congrats, your 2 great players you picked resulted in nothing of substance and you now suck and you still need a QB.    When you combine all the factors - IF you believe in a QB in the draft - no price is too high. You figure out the QB and you will have plenty of chances to build around him. You don't figure it out and you will have a middling team on the QB carousel. 
    • Kind of expected to experience some growing pains on our OL with new starters.  Pryor at LT seems legit and Pinter can play both RG/Center.  Even impressed with French's play at Center although he did get a flag this weekend.  Smith is puzzling at times and seems to have lost his edge.   To me we lack depth players who don't need PS grooming.  One player that the Colts might consider is Phil Haynes (Seahawks) at RG.  Haynes is having a great camp and making a case as the starting RG.
    • These are false arguments.   First, no one trades TWO 1’s and TWO 3’s at least to move up for any other position.   But you do for a quarterback.    And you know that.    Second, I don’t think the bust rate is as high for most other positions as it is for quarterback where the failure rate for first round quarterbacks is well over 50 percent.    Plus,  there are other important factors.  Every pick you trade away impacts the quality of the team you put around the QB.  Plus, you have to eventually play the guy to see what you have.  And there will be growing pains along the way in most cases.   Are fans ready for several season of missing the playoffs because of poor quarterback play, PLUS even with an improved drafting position from a sub-500 record the team has traded so many picks, you don’t reap the benefit.     Combine all those factors, the cost of the trade up, plus the high bust rate, the loss of high picks and that’s why teams like the Colts are very cautious.   You really do have to hit it big.   Otherwise your franchise is really set back.    This isn’t remotely as simple as you like to portray that it is. 
    • We played.   We traded for Carson Wentz.   That didn’t turn out as we hoped.   Anyone can make a trade.   Making a successful trade is another story.
