He played great against SEC, had over 1,400 yards, had a bad combine 40 where he fell the first time but came back and ran a 4.5 at his pro day which makes more since after you watch tape of hime

Another WR!? I'll have to look into this guy but man, I'm starting to be concerned here. Not a single DB yet? I'd like to see us take a chance on Dennard next pick if he's there.....

Did I miss the memo that our defense has drastically improved over the off-season and has virtually no need for help from the draft?

with all of these offense picks, and just one D pick...Chapman, do you think they expect a lot of these db's dl's to go undrafted? I don't see how you can go almost completely offense...

What positions do we need? The only ones as pressing as the offensive needs we've fixed are NT and CB, but apparently Pagano likes the CBs. Keep in mind our scheme was terrible last year, not necessarily the players...

Well, still not defense, but at least Anderson is a lineman. He's got good size and reviewed well, but hopefully that injury doesn't become a concern. He sounds like a project. Hopefully he'll develop.

Since we're obviously rebuilding the team, maybe Grigson is taking a stepwise approach. Step 1, develop a powerful offense for Luck. Step 2 (next year) build a new defense. Who knows.

They w I'll test the players we have to see how they pan out. Then they will really know what our needs are. We got our NT that was absolutely necessary. We may get a CB just to push who we have.

Pagano must see something in the corners that no one else has seen over the past few years. Powers has been the only reliable starter (skillwise), but he's got injury concerns. We need safeties. Linebackers are fine. We need linemen. We can't assume that all of our old 4-3 linemen are going to transition to 3-4 linemen. It's just not going to happen.

I'm not entirely unhappy with this draft. I'm not sold on the RB pick. What role is he supposed to play? We've got Brown and Carter. Didn't we already have a fullback that played well until injury (I missed half the games b/c they started playing Bengals' games in my area). The guy is smaller than Carter for that matter and scouts say he's not that powerful. I don't see the point.

I'm also not entirely sold on Allen, but that pick doesn't upset me that bad. I still would have rather had Cordy Glenn or Ta'amu.

Lets go get a corner. Dennard or Ryan Steed.

Other BPA possibilities: DE/OLB Cam Johnson, SS Antonio Allen,

Need to end strong. DENNARD and _____________?

Dennard and Minnefield. Call it a draft. Look to sign some other DBs that go undrafted too....some that can play safety....

Who the Fug is Tim Fugger? I just dont understand it. I feel like Powers is all we have at CB........maybe were hopin that some guys go undrafted. That must be the plan.

Well, I hate to complain since we finally went defense, but Tim Fugger? A 248lb DE? Future LB or did we decide to stay 4-3...

It's kind of nice to have a draft to complain about without having to hear, "Trust in Bill Polian," "Blil Polian knows what he's doing," "Bill Polian..."

Wow switching between NFL network and ESPN

And ESPN is reeeeaally late with the picks. Is that on purpose by NFL so more people watch their network?

As I said in the other thread, Minnifield has a major medical red flag with his knee. He'll probably go undrafted.

    • JB was very efficient the first 6 weeks or so of the season.  He had a knee injury which some claim kept him from stepping into his throws, he lost a bunch of weapons, etc.  He was very mediocre the rest of the season.  It could be that teams just figured out with him at the helm, our O was going to be very vanilla, it could be he was hurt, it could be he lacked weapons, it could be that he's simply no good.  It could be a combination of all those things.  I trust Reich and Ballard to do the full evaluation to figure out the way to go forward.   Personally, if one of the stud DL or WR is available at 13 and we'd be reaching for a QB there, I'd rather go with the stud DL or WR.  Really, outside of LSU's QB who will go #1 overall, I don't see any QBs in this draft as being 'locks' as franchise QBs.  Then on the FA market we have Rivers and potentially Eli, Brees and Brady as older QBs.  Sounds like Rivers would be the only realistic option and who  knows what we'd get from him.  Then there's a bunch of talk about maybe Bridgewater or Carr, who are both kind of wild cards.   Again, I'll trust Ballard & Co.... but I don't know that there is one specific answer to the question.  There are a lot of good players in this draft at positions we need.  I don't think we're entirely taking a step back if we stuck with Brissett and Kelly to see if either one of them could improve to become true starter level, so long as we fixed other glaring holes and added depth where needed.  To be honest, I think we'd be better off in the long-run there rather than missing studs and reaching for a QB who is iffy at best.
    • That why Garrett was fired. He was a awful coach when it comes to game situations and management.   I could see Carolina. Tampa’s offense would not work for him. Arians would have to change slot. I think Carr could also be a trade destination to Tampa or NE.
    • So we keep Brissett because he’s a great teammate and leader. Look I understand those are good qualities to have but his play on the field should be the reason we keep him or not.
    • Kinda small compared to Brown and Kinlaw
    • Anyone who pays Teddy 30M is making a bad decision.
