    Draft Trade Rumors

    Talking about the trade with the Redskins scenario/possibility: Let's assume we get #15. Are there players on the 'Skins you guys would take back in lieu of a pick (ex. Skins 2nd and Scherff instead of 'Skins 2nd & 3rd)?

    I wouldn't say "awesome" but definitely better than I thought. Then again, I loved the old design and initially hated the new logo when released. I like the new shade of green. Hopefully it doesn't blend in too well with the turf color.

    Draft Trade Rumors

    Agreed if all we're getting back is their 2nd round pick (and #15)
  4. If this is the case, why wouldn't the Cards go ahead and draft Murray anyway? Rosen's value is low right now. They should hold onto him and maybe he shines in the preseason and the Cards can decide to trade him then (like we did with Bridgewater). The Skins took a 2nd QB (Cousins) the year they drafted RGIII.
  5. Can't disagree with the points you made.
  6. While impressive, a lot of those stats last year came agains some weak opponents. Houston's conference is one of the weakest in FBS. Some games from last year 3.5 vs Rice: https://uhcougars.com/boxscore.aspx?id=3416&path=football 5 vs ECU https://uhcougars.com/boxscore.aspx?id=3421&path=football

    Frank Clark to the Chiefs

    Wow. Glad we didn't pay that price

    Jets LB Darron Lee did not report for OTAs. Lee's roster spot is in question after the Jets signed C.J. Mosley to a big deal in free agency, so it makes sense for him to stay away from the team until the situation is resolved. That could happen this weekend during the draft. Coming off his best season as a pro, Lee should draw interest if the Jets make him available. Source: Connor Hughes on Twitter Apr 23, 2019, 11:29 AM

    Frank Clark

    Seattle supposedly asking for the #3 pick from us for Clark. HA! https://www.rotoworld.com/football/nfl/player/11643/frank-clark
  10. I posted the Edge rankings on the main board but figured they should go here https://www.rotoworld.com/article/evaluations/nfl-draft-center-rankings
  11. Mosley is under contract too

    Live vs TV

    Football has become the best pro sport for TV. One of the only pluses of living in Fairfield County CT is sometimes getting 2 games on at once. 2 hours + (with traffic) each way kills the experience. Going to one or two games a year is enough for me. Season tickets - no way. Have to pay full price for pre-season games and when the team is bad (which has happened many times), you can't give tickets away in late November/December
  13. Where is the "All of the above" option? LOL. Of those choices offered, OL followed closely by Edge
  14. Do you know for a fact that they can't/couldn't get a 2nd for Williams? Do you know for a fact that they have put Williams on the trading block and what offers they have received? Do you know for a fact that they want to trade Williams? My guess is your answer to these questions is "No"
  15. Long but interesting breakdowns https://www.rotoworld.com/article/evaluations/nfl-draft-edge-rankings?page=0

    NFL Draft Edge Rankings (Rotoworld)

    Should have put this in draft forum. Mods please move
  17. I'd be willing to try a different variation of your idea: trade a 2020 3 or 4 and maybe D. Lee to buy another 2 or 3 this year.
  18. He really played RB at 6'5?

    Matt Miller - QW is the top rated player in the draft

    Not sure how I feel about Williams, but there are some highlight videos out there where it appeared he made Erik McCoy (Texas AM C who a lot of us are interested in) look real bad.
  20. I've had a bad feeling about Bosa since the combine. Specifically, can he play in space (coverage) in a 3-4? Not sure if he was asked to do that at OSU. Seems to be more of a traditional 4-3 end who is strictly an upfield player. Does he have the quickness and ability to change direction for the pro game? Asking those who have watched film or a lot of OSU games

    Bosa Not Meeting with Jets

    Just found this on Yahoo DE Nick Bosa, Ohio State The Bosa drama has been far less prominent than that surrounding Haskins and Murray. And it has nothing to do with scrubbing his social media accounts. But make no mistake, there is definitely a debate in some front offices questioning whether Bosa is being elevated over other players simply because he’s seen as safe. Specifically, multiple evaluators have suggested that Alabama’s Quinnen Williams and Kentucky’s Josh Allen are demonstrably better pass rushers who have the tape to back it up. To the point that the word “overrated” has been dropped on Bosa by some late in this process. One harsh assessment that really stuck out: Bosa had basically one year as a starter in college football and hasn’t fully lived up to being anointed as the next great edge rusher as he followed in the steps of his older brother, Joey. This includes his four sacks and six tackles for loss in three games in 2018 – which this particular evaluator pointed out were executed against players at Oregon State, Rutgers and TCU who “will never sniff the NFL.” It’s fair to say a negative evaluation like that can’t simply be pegged as a lie. But there are definitely some scouts, executives and coaches who don’t all extend Bosa the “can’t miss” assessment that has gotten lavished on him in many corners. Maybe something more along the lines of “less likely to miss but less likely to be an All Pro” is the tag some would reach for. Whether that’s right, there are people who aren’t buying some of the resounding Bosa applause, either.

    Is Bosa the right fit for us at 3?

    Ty Montgomery to Jets

    I get your points. Health has been a major issue with him the pat few years and he is a converted WR. I'm sure the Jets view him as a Swiss Army knife depth player. I'm sure we didn't spend a lot on him so I see no harm in taking a flyer. You're right about the Jets' history of drafting RBs. Same goes for OL too but at least we drafted Nick & Brick. Slauson had a nice career too. Only 2 RBs I can think of that had any (albeit average/brief) success are Bilal and Shonn Greene. And that's across many years and multiple coaches and GMs.
  24. Self medicate (bourbon) the hour before it starts and then hold my breath before they make their pick (hoping not to pass out). Path to bathroom is clear, light on, lid up in case I have to puke as a result of the pick🙄
