  1. Similar - but I would argue that Curtis Martin was easily a top 3-5 NFL running back for several years and Eli was never close to being a top 3-5 NFL QB in any single season of his entire career.
  2. A lot of great players will be watching the SB from their couch. I have some concerns about the longevity of Jackson’s play style, but at the end of the day, he was excellent this year and is 19-3 as a starter. 19-3.
  3. He’s also the reigning MVP of the NFL
  4. I would take the WR 10/10 times We have basically had two decades of ignoring offensive skill position players in the first round. ENOUGH
  5. I think Polian could definitely be right. That's just the way it is in recent times. The QBs are always the hot commodity.
  6. This is all fair and if they let Robby walk, they will absolutely need to pickup two premiere WRs and the FA market is thin.
  7. I think Miami is almost definitely going to take Herbert or Tua at 5. (Probably Tua if he gets a clean medical report)
  8. Exactly. If the top OL prospects are gone by 11, that makes it very likely that either Lamb or Judy is on the board. The same thing is true the other way around. There are ten spots ahead of us. You figure 3 QBs (Burrow, Tua, Herbert) and Chase Young are absolute locks to go in the top 10. That leaves 6 slots ahead of us with Becton, Wills, Wirfs, Lamb, Judy, Simmons (S), Brown (DT), Okudah (CB), and Kinlaw (DT) still on the board. Hence, we would have to get incredibly unlucky to miss out on all of Becton, Wills, Wirfs, Lamb, and Judy.
  9. We haven't drafted an offensive skill-position player in the 1st round since 2001!!!!! Think about that. You think we might want to prioritize the passing offense for a change?
  10. I'd love it if we got a good OT prospect, so I basically agree. The only thing I will add (as I have done elsewhere) is that it depends on what happens in FA. For instance, if we sign 2-3 good OL pieces in FA and let Robby go, I am going to probably want a WR at 11.
  11. Right. There's no doubt that WR is a saturated position, but it's still an impact position (along with QB, edge rusher, corner, and offensive tackle). So, if you think Lamb/Judy are studs and you need a WR, you take one of them!
  12. All this means is that, if the Jets pass on a WR at 11 for an OL, it's not the end of the world because they could potentially land a legit WR prospect later in the draft. This doesn't mean that you pass on Lamb or Judy no matter what. If you think Lamb is the best player available and you need a WR, you take him.
  13. Well, clearly the Mangold-Brick era by itself proves that "never" is the wrong word. Perhaps it usually doesn't work this way, but we ought to strive to make it happen again.
  14. I want a young, talented OL that we can trot out there for the next 5-7 years. I'm not interested in giving up a 3rd round pick for a 32 year old who hasn't played since 2018.
  15. This is a good point. Even if you are someone (like me) who wants only great/dominant players to get into the HOF, the fact of the matter is that there are plenty of compiler/"good player for a long time" types who have already gotten in.
  16. Tbh, without SB III, I don't see how he comes close
  17. In a vacuum, I agree. But in reality, it also depends on what happens in FA and what he thinks of 2nd/3rd round WRs vs. 2nd/3rd round OLs.
  18. Where did you get this from? FYI, Belichick is on record as saying that he thinks that shorter WRs have a key advantage over taller guys: They tend to be much better at maintaining their balance when getting jammed at the line.
  19. I'm pretty sure this is wrong because I was told Darnold isn't good because he's from California and everyone from there is soft. For realz.
  20. My gut says Lamb, but both are elite WR prospects. I will be doing handstands if either is there when we pick (and then subsequently raging when we inevitably pass on him)
  21. The problem is that they can’t count on picking at the top of the draft again, so they can’t count on getting Lawrence or Fields. IMO, they need a good young QB to get anywhere anyway, so they should probably use the number 5 overall pick to make that happen. You have to strike while the iron is hot
  22. Hah. i would say Darnold was our most valuable player last season (compare the offensive production with and without him) but not the best overall. There’s a reason Adams was 1st team all-pro this year.
