In the GML he wasn't even drafted...BK ended up signing him for a cool 3.25 mil
I'm not sure why he wasn't drafted... Maybe because people think he is a OLB and is too small to play it in the NFL? I think he is a ILB and one of the better ones in the draft. Honestly I should have took him in the 7th and just signed a bunch of WR like I ended up doing anyways.
Yes..... and potentially yes. I think the 5th round is a good spot for him.... but with the upside at ILB to eventually play like a top 75 pick.
I thought about Schobert but liked Matakevich better. Especially as an ILB. Still a solid pick....could do so much worse.
I know personally that for me, once i drafted Scooby in the 3rd, I really didn't have a spot for him...but i would've thought someone else would draft him
Where are they doing the GML?
Can I draft with Detroit now, or I do I need to wait for my time to officially start?
You can select
I gotta say that the guys running this thing are on point. I love how the draft list and positions breakdown is updated almost immediately every time. That makes it so much easier for us picking.
Thanks man! UC and I are definitely doing our best. I can't speak for him but this is my first time doing anything like this so I appreciate the acknowledgment!
Northern Iowa and their potato farming homers.
To answer your question 305, Victor Ochi is indeed from Stony Brook.
I know, I guess I should have put Ron Burgandy next to it
Have to admit theres one more that I find very intriguing that I hope falls to Tampa.
Some nice picks in Hall, DJ White, and especially Burbridge who i have a late 3rd round grade on. I like Ochi as a late round pick as hes from Stony Brook, about an hour from me...This may be 25 picks or so too early but he could certainly be worth it.
Burbridge is interesting, a real love or hate guy in this years class. I'm personally not a fan but as a late round flier, I certainly don't dislike the pick.
Personally I see Burbridge as a high-floor low-ceiling dude. He'll be a serviceable WR, but I don't see anything special there...
Wait, Moritz's team was actually called.... the Unicorns? What bet did that owner lose?
Keanu might be the steal of the draft
Atleast he took him from NE.
Minnesota Vikings Draft
23. Andrew Billings, DL, Baylor
54. Vonn Bell, DB, Ohio State
86. Sterling Shepard, WR, Oklahoma
121. Dominique Alexander, LB, Oklahoma
160. Spencer Drango, OL, Baylor
180. Moritz Boehringer, WR, Germany State
New England Patriots Draft
60. Derrick Henry, RB, Alabama
61. Keanu Neal, DB, Florida
92. Rashard Higgins, WR, Colorado State
96. Leonte Carroo, WR, Rutgers
Sorry about that... I was in a sickly haze. I was dreaming I had a pick I missed and instead it was two. For goodness sake.
I apologize to you guys... but not NE.
So in Mel Kiper's "Grade A" Mock draft he has the 49ers taking Kwiatkoski in round 3 saying "Kwiatkoski is an immediate help at inside linebacker, where we need it here." I just took Kwiatkoski for the 49ers in the supplemental portion of round 5. Of course, this means very little, but I thought that was funny.
Kiper also has OT has a top need for the Dolphins, which I don't see. With Bushrod being a natural OT, I don't see OT as even a top 7 need.
All these prognosticators have no idea what they're talking about. I'm not sure they even watch NFL football games.
I can see the argument that OT is a need. Albert is older and injury prone and James is strictly a RT. Whenever one misses games our OL folds like a tent. Bushrod's is working exclusively at guard right now and while he's been an OT and a good one before, the last few years haven't been very good. Additionally we want to keep continuity along the OL because that unit works best when players stay in their same roles. In order to maintain that continuity than you need quality depth there. If we drafted Ronnie Stanley at 13 I would have 0 complaints. If we drafted Le Raven Clark or Jason Spriggs in round 2 with an eye towards replacing Albert, again I'd have 0 complaints. Tannehill has proven tough but protecting the QB is always a pressing need, especially for a team that has proven inept at it.
I wouldn't complain about Stanley at 13, just because the value would seem to be to good to pass up, but with all of our defensive needs, I can't see us drafting a OT in Round 1 or 2 unless it was a major value.
How can Bushrod be working exclusively at OG when we haven't even had OTA or Mini Camp yet? If anything he's only been doing it for a few weeks and could easily transition back to tackle. I would prefer we grab a OG in round 2 over a OT in round 2. At least the guard should be in position to start with Bushrod the backup OT, instead of Bushrod starting at OG and our rookie OT sitting on the bench until injury happens.
I just see OG as a bigger need than OT
A run on TE's.... like a Friday night at Todds house
OG may be a bigger need, but Albert can shift there. You're talking to someone who has always believed that you build an OL from the inside out not vice versa. The shortest distance from one point to another is always a straight line. That said, the draft is about value first. It's also about which position is harder to find players at and which position is harder to find players at. Finding tackles is harder then guards. There's a reason guards rarely shift outside but tackles frequently shift inside.
Regarding Bushrod, he will be working at OG. That's what Gase said. So that seems to be a formality more then anything.
We are going to have to agree on the philosophy of having a OT on the bench. For me, guard is a more fungible position. Finding a quality OT, especially LT is just much harder.
That higbee pick tho...a round 4 or 5 talent...but that assault charge tho...idk if the dudes gonna make the NFL
Round 2 talent
So you keep saying...maybe round 3
Not that any of these TE's are better. This whole class of TE's is lackluster. Almost no one above a day 3 grade
Sorry everyone, I dun goofed. Washington will take Devon Cajuste and Chicago takes Dean Lowery. The two picks were so close, I got them confused.
This is my new favorite gif.
From the windows..... to the walls.....
So whats the deal... why is Perkins absent of so many boards?
probably b/c he might be viewed as more of a complimentary piece than a foundation back.
I can't believe how many WRs are still on the board.
Yea, there is one I particularly like a lot, yet feel little incentive to take him yet.
