no but it was better then drafting a tight end two picks in a row although I really like Allen and like Fleener but I would drafted one or the other with our needs thats all Im saying

Honestly.... so would I but it looks like Grigson wants to "load up" on high quality guys at positions that help Luck.

Let's see how the rest of our picks go.... there's still alot of good players on the board. :)

I think we can see that Grigson is following his plan of BPA to the letter...........are there players available at OTHER positions of need at this point, heck yeah there are............but, you can make the argument that we now can field an authentic NFL offense with the three draftee's plus Wayne and Collie on the outside and a line of Castonzo-Rietz-Satele-Ijalana-Justice and a Brown/Carter backfield!

With that being said, there are several DT's that 'should' still be available in the 4th round and it also goes to show that Pagano may have more confidence in Rucker and Thomas at corner than originally thought?

Grigson said NT is fine. Now that's what he thinks so I'm saying we go CB in the 4th like Dennard, Hosely or Leonard Johnson. Another possibility would be Markelle Martin. As far as WR it would be T.Y. Hilton then Streeter in the fifth.

Ultimately, I think Ta'amu is aa 3 tech/5 tech. He's more of a disruptive player than a nose. Would rather have Josh Chapman late.

Ta'amu is going to be your 0 technique NT. He can't do much in the passing game as he doesn't have a lot of pass rushing moves and he isn't very fast. He will force offenses to double team him and let the LBs make plays while being able to stuff the run

On a side note, am I the only one watching the draft via nfl.com? My NFL Network has been down since the Lions picked in the 2nd round (the pick before that, actually). Watching the free stream now, but didn't subscribe to see Bucky Brooks & co, as well as listening to fantasy analysis from Michael Fabiano.

The most Productive, most talented player in the front 7 left is Jake Baquette. He is 6'4, but I didn't do to much scouting on him. But in the two games i've seen, he did very well in 1 and had a 2 sacks, and the other he was completely dominated by Bobbie Massie and Sowell.

Loved Fleener pick... Curious about the ALlen cuz never considered the Stanford O in Indy...If we are O focused give me Givens and an O lineman. And heck, a runner like Tauren Poole!

Still have pics to thicken the D but if a D minde guy like Pags isn't stressing our current stable of guys on HIS side of the ball... I'm not! Let's put up some points!

What a waste of a 2nd round pick... Honestly i would MUCH rather have a Stephen Hill-Dwayne Allen combo then a 2 TE set... the only way that works is if your team has legit recivers the defence has to cover too... not just Reggie Wayne... we could have had Upshaw to shore up that DE position or Cordy Gleen to be able to get Ben Ijalana to RT and make our Line 20x better... Or we could have got a CB which is the positon we need the most, But noooo we take the most pointless guy, Coby Fleener is not better then almost anyother TE in this draft that we could have and did draft in the 3RD round and if we waited could have drafted in the 4TH round, we had Stephen Hill, Cordy Gleen or Courtny Upshaw wrapped in a bow for us and we took exactly who i hoped we wouldnt, Great way to start of a new era... a terrible pick that we could have used on a potential probowl (if it was still around) player... :(

Mark My Word Coby Fleener is the most overrated player in this draft, and i have a strong feeling will be a major bust, He dosn't have Vernon Davis Hight and Speed and isnt close to Gronks size or tuffness, i hate when people compair the two.They are not even close

    • I don't know about that one... but this was the playoffs of the 2003 season, Manning was at the very beginning of his stretch of dominance over the league. Dungy was also a very conservative head coach, even for 2003. Can't imagine any coach giving these instructions in 2020, but the league has become a lot more progressive in a relatively short period of time.    It was two years later in the playoffs against the Steelers when PM had to shoo the punt team off the field for a 4th down play. We all remember the visual. But I decided to look up the play by play. It was 21-3, Steelers, and that 4th down play was the last play of the 3rd quarter, ball at the Indy 36. It's hard to imagine any coach punting in that situation right now, especially with a QB who just won MVP by throwing 49 TDs the previous season. But Dungy's reflex was to punt, and it took PM, back to back MVP winner, QB of a team that started the season 13-0, to convince Dungy to let the offense go for it. Dungy mouthed his response: "It's on you."    My point is that it wouldn't surprise me to find out that Dungy wasn't a fan of PM having so much control at the line of scrimmage, especially back in 2003/2004, on the road, AFFCG. 
    • I agree and Id add that not addressing QB is the same (or worse) as making a bad pick at the position. Herbert and Love were in play but Ballard chose to address the DT position instead. The team needed a QB, there were QBs to be had and he passed. As those guys continue to develop and start to play its a reflection on Ballard imo.   
    • @Jared Cisneros @Narcosys   Choosing 1 from these for a flex: DeSean Jackson, Mike Gesicki, Mark Ingram, Corey Davis
    • I would go with Ekeler for the PPR aspect since right now both Drake and Chubb are being used as 2 down backs without many receptions. It is likely in Ekeler's favor, IMO. 
    • That's what manning said after the game.
