Ballard's gonna make one if not two trades

Pitt moves up for a QB and GB gets in on the WRs of R3

 

P42, P216 to PIT for P52 and P84 (483 for 550)

P84 to GB for P92 and P140 (170 for 168)

 

 

Round 2: No. 49: Alec Pierce WR Cincinnati

Pierce has quickly become one of my favorite prospects. He's one of the best vertical threats coming out of college and with his size it's that much easier for him

He can stack DBs very quickly, overpower defenders due to his size, his vertical is fantastic, and he's got true burner speed.

He's a perfect slide in option at the Z opposite Pittman and he's only going to get better when he adds strength and physicality to his game


Round 3: No. 73: Greg Dulcich TE UCLA

He's huge at 6'4', 240 and he's much faster than he should be at that size. His ability to maximize YAC is great and he's got versatility in splitting seams, working vertical routes, and cutting underneath for shorter gains. Blocking is where he needs his biggest improvement at but the receiving aspect of Dulcich is too good to pass up.

 

Round 3: No. 92: Jalyn Armour-Davis CB Alabama

Davis has the specimen body you'd want from a corner, from height, length, to wingspan. He's only a one year starter at Bama, but he has the potential to be one of the best corners from the class with proper development. He's fast and can stick with the receivers you throw at him, he's absolutely excellent in press/man coverages and he'd fit Bradley's defense perfectly. Adding him to a room of Moore, Gilmore, and Rodgers, it'd make our corner group one of the biggest strengths on the team. Fluidity at the position, tackle angles, and pre snap recognition can all be worked on.


Round 4: No. 122: Zach Tom OT Wake Forest 

Two year starter at LT for Wake, he was very impressive although lacking the prototypical tackle size and length. He's a great athlete who is going to thrive by being more of a finesse left tackle than a dominate pancaking guy. He's fluid with his movements, his lateral movement is smooth, and he's a great run blocker on top of it all. Pros are calling for a move back inside but I think he's a good enough athlete and with development, he can stick at LT for a few years. 

 

Round 4: No 140: Velus Jones Jr WR Tennessee

He's a great slot prospect with incredible returning production and ability to play on ST. He's very, very quick and he's great at finding soft spots in zones while also having the ability to take the top off the defense. Jones will probably be limited to straight slot on any NFL team but that's not a huge knock because he's very good at what he does at the position. He's still pretty raw and needs to expand his route tree.


Round 5: No 159: Darrian Beavers LB/EDGE Cincinnati 

A thumping, physical hybrid player who has very active hands when engaging and disengaging blockers. He's a great blitzer with a good pre snap processor and ability to get to the ballcarrier. He's not the best athlete, nor is he a fantastic coverage guy, but he'll thrive as a blitzing boomstick whose job is to get to the ball.

 

Round 5: No 179: Thomas Booker IDL Stanford

Booker is going to thrive in a defensive that lets him play to his strengths at the snap of the ball. He's incredibly explosive, quick, and knows which gaps to shoot off the bat. He's got a powerful punch and a good anchor on his lower half. Productivity over four years at Stanford wasn't great, his sack production is low, double teams kill him, and he's gotta add more counter moves to his arsenal. He'd be a great project to try to development, ala Grover Stewart.


Round 7: No. 239: Doug Kramer IOL Illinois

Kramer's going to be strictly a depth addition who could fill in via injury if needed. He's a smart player who will play hard until the end but he's not without struggles. Powerful DTs will blast him off platform, has history of whiffing blocks, and hand usage is poor.

I like the trades, could be realistic. (You never know with mocks). I’d prefer either Jelani Woods (6’7”, 255lbs, ran 4.61 40) or my man crush, Tre McBride (had at least 6 receptions/gm last season, projects as a move TE - could be our best TE since Dallas Clark! IMO) as TE. 
 

Not sure if I’d pick 2 WRs, if so, not fan of Velus, but otherwise I like the rest. Good job.

I like it. Two explosive playmakers for the offense right off the back is a slam dunk. I also really like Davis but his arm length (30 inches) doesn’t meet the Ballard threshold. Maybe swap him with Alontae Taylor in that spot? I like everything else though.

    • Did you get to see the game? KT had sooo much bad luck on soft hits
    • I’m old enough to remember the 2021 season. 
    • My top 15 would be: Based on eye test (except Graham, Starr, and Unitas as I was too young to watch them live but I have seen film on them), stats, MVP's, over all win shares, longevity, talent, and clutchness, etc..   1. Tom Brady - eventhough I feel weary putting him here because there have been a couple of cheating scandals. 7 SB wins, 5 SB MVP's, 3 League MVP's, and his stats are among the best ever. His longevity is so impressive as well. He didn't cheat when the Bucs won it all in 2020, so there is that.   2. Joe Montana - 4 SB wins, 3 SB MVP's, 2 League MVP's. He had 0 INT's in 4 SB games, that is unbelievable.    3. Peyton Manning - 2 SB wins, 1 SB MVP,  5 League MVP's - most ever by any NFL player in history. He holds the record for most Yards (5477) and TD's (55) in 1 season = 2013. He was 3-1 vs Brady in AFC Title Games. I would put him in my top 3 all day. He is Mr. 12 wins a year.   4. Johnny Unitas - 1 SB win (1970) as an older starter but 2 NFL Championships in 1958 and 1959. He put up great stats for a QB that played in the 50's and 60's. He actually won a League MVP in the SB era (1967).   5. John Elway - Could do it all. Run, had a cannon for an arm. Once he got a running game in 1997 it wasn't fair. Won SB's in 1997 and 1998. Won League MVP in 1987. Stats wise not too shabby either = 50,000 yards passing and 300 TD's.   6. Aaron Rodgers - 1 SB win, 1 SB MVP, 4 League MVP's. He wins 12 or 13 games every year it seems in his sleep     7. Otto Graham - In his era, he dominated. Won several Championships. He belongs here at worse. I know how great he was but I just feel the other 6 QB's were better.   8. Drew Brees - Stats king, 1 SB win, he would be higher but no League MVP's.   9. Brett Favre - 1 SB win, he is the only NFL player to win 3 straight League MVP's in a row = 1995-1997. He put up huge numbers as well and was an iron man. He would be higher on this list but his total INT's has him here. He is still top 10 and fun to watch.   10. Dan Marino - the only QB I have in my top 10 that didn't win a SB/Championship. By eye test and talent alone he was top 10. He lost to Montana in his only SB appearance (1984), won the League MVP that season in 1984. He set records with TD passes and yards in 1984 that were video game numbers. He never had a defense or run game in his entire career.   11. Terry Bradshaw - He helped the Steelers to 4 SB wins, his stats weren't elite but he did win 1 League MVP, unlike lets say a Ben Roethlisberger who never won a League MVP. He had a stacked team but 4 is 4.   12. Steve Young - As a starter won 1 SB, had it not been for the Cowboys he probably wins 3. He won 2 League MVP's, Aikman never won an League MVP.   13. Roger Staubach - I think he was better than Aikman by the eye test who was also a Cowboys QB. He did win 2 SB's and went to 4 like Peyton as a starter. He was like Steve Young, he could run and scramble really well.   14. Troy Aikman - He helped the Cowboys win 3 SB's. Like Bradshaw on stacked teams but in big games his accuracy was spot on. IMO Emmitt Smith was the best player on his teams but without Troy they don't win 3 SB's either.   15. Patrick Mahomes - as a starter, has made 4 straight AFC Championships games, has won a SB and been too 2. He has won a League MVP, SB MVP, and has had a season where he threw for 5000 yards and 50 TD's = 2018. He is the best QB over the last 4 seasons easily and going into 2022 I have him #1. Even without Hill, they will still win the AFC West IMO.      - Omissions, people will say where in the hell is Sammy Baugh? Sammy is top 20 = great QB, here is the deal with Sammy. He was known as a top 20 football player of all-time because of his defense and punting ability along with his QB play, just not for his QB play. Was he a great QB, hell yes but not better than my top 15. Overall player he is arguably top 10 because of his defensive play and Punting ability's.    Where is Bart Starr? I say Top 20. He wasn't better than Mahomes though IMO.
    • Yup, after I posted, I looked it up. Looks like Coutee only had 2 weeks on the 53 last year, which he needs 6 min for an accrued season.    If TY isn't resigned, I think Coutee stands a decent chance of sticking on the 53. We're over stocked on bigs, not so much on Z/slot types. That is, unless they start running 6-3+ guys from Z... 
    • I think Coutee has one more year to accrue.
