  1. Agree. And although I don't know a lot about Toney, most of the commentators suggested he is not a well rounded/versatile wr. Perhaps they saw something or perhaps they just blundered. It may be a bit anxiety on Gettleman's part due to the Daniel Jones experiment since their destinies are entwined. The way I see it, Daniel Jones' pocket awareness is somewhere between imagination and vapor. You cant coach for that. He's going to keep getting hit from angles he does not see and he's going to keep giving up the ball. He has more give-aways than any other guy in the league. That is
  2. I almost have to hold myself back from saying this, but I like JD moving up to get the best interior line prospect to protect Wilson. Especially given that he can play on the outside as well. Great flexibility there, if needed. Wilson seems exciting, but there are questions. Regardless, it was sublimely prudent for JD to add another top-notch player for the offensive line. Wilson can't prove himself while eating turf or on IR. Also like the Pats pick of Mac Jones. I had a feeling he'd wind up there. Good fit for both team and prospect.
  3. Giants got value for the pick, but I don't see the logic in the Toney selection.
  4. JG is not likely to fail. He may not set the league on fire, but he's at least a proven "B-Lister" at this point. If he goes down to injury, I agree they may have a problem. Lance may or may not pan out, but they better have a third QB on the roster that can start in place of GP. If they throw Lance in before he's prepared, it would be bad news.
  5. Not sure if it was the worst pick, but the Giants pick of Toney was sort of a head-scratcher. They got some value by trading down, but why take that WR when they have so many hoes to fill and there were much higher rated players on the board. That was an odd pick.
  6. Agree fully. I would imagine the 49'ers were expecting Lance to take a few years to develop. They have the ideal circumstances to develop an uncut gem like Lance. They can still "win now" with Garoppolo while preparing Lance for the future.
  7. Agree fully, I want entertainment. I miss all the fun Rex media stuff. I hope Wilson can be lots of fun without pissing-off the opposition off the way Rex did.
  8. Pro Day ??? Was there a real game going on ??? When there were actual games going on, his numbers for 2020 read like this: Games Played: 13 Completion Percentage: 77.4 % Total Yards: 4,500 TDs: 41 Int: 3 QB Rating: 203 Jones may very well wind up being the best passer out of the 2021 QB draft class.
  9. Wow... Could Jones or Fields actually fall to the Pats ???
  10. And, with that, you have stumbled on how and why the Jets brass got *maneuvered* out of Trevor Lawrence. There are several NFL owners that don't like or respect the Jets and their ownership. Some who didn't want to see the a generational prospect like Lawrence wind up with the Jets. Pressure was put on the league office and in turn, they contacted the Jets and threatened them with forfeiture of their draft pick if it could be proven that they were throwing games. There was "insider" talk about coaches on the Jets that were pissed off about having to throw games and this point was
  11. Not too many had Rosen as undraftable. Good call. I had it: 1. Baker 2. Sam 3. Rosen 4. Allen I was off the mark. Especially on Allen who I figured would never be accurate or consistent enough for the NFL.
  12. I dig. Surrounding talent and level of competition is key in making evaluations. Look how many USC QB's were rated as top prospects... How did they end up ??? QED.
  13. Agree. Important fact there. Either they liked Jones at his pro day, or perhaps they just wanted to make sure they were in striking distance of the two QB's not going to the Jags or Jets.
  14. Many of the mock drafts have the 49ers taking Fields. Some Lance. Agree, not a stretch, but not a sure bet. The larger point is that most of the GM's would agree to take Jones before Fields or Lance. Heck, I think the Jets should take Jones and not Wilson.
  15. Very possible you are correct. He may be another reclamation project like Darnold is now in four years, or he may be a back-up. The point is, Wilson is a very risky pick.
  16. It is not a matter of telling players to under perform or throw plays. Winning int the NFL even against losing teams is hard to do. You need to prepare, plan and execute. There are many ways to avoid doing any of those three or all three without having to say a word out loud.
  17. CORRECTION. 1. Lawrence 2. Wilson 3. Jones 4. Pitts 5. Chase (possible Sewell. Even thought he may be a risk, the previous injury to QB JB may entice them into the Sewell pick rather than taking what looks to be the best WR in the draft. 6. Sewell (if Bengals don't go for him, Chase if they do 7. Waddel 8. Horn 9. Fields 10. Surtain
  18. If the 49ers are as smart, you'd win the bet. Let's see if their GM agrees with me with Jones being a better prospect than Fields or Lance. And a better bet than Wilson for that matter, but he will be off the board when the 49'ers are up at 3 Other than my musing about Jones falling to the Pats, I see the first ten in the draft going like this 1. Lawrence 2. Wilson 3. Jones 4. Pitts 5. Chase (possible Sewell. Even thought he may be a risk, the previous injury to QB JB may entice them into the Sewell pick rather than taking what looks to be the best WR in
  19. Oh, yes... It is a new era, alright. And there will be a new era after this one. Glad you like Wilson. Always good when your team drafts the QB you like...
  20. I dont think there is any easy way out of this expensive blunder by Mr. Coffee. They have to take the pain
  21. Yes, Off my board for the first round. I'd take Fields, Wilson and or Lance after the first round if I had the chance. If nothing else, trade bait. I killed Idzik for the Geno Smith pick because I felt Smith would never pan out. That was one occasion that I was correct.
  22. Even though you are contradicting me, I agree with every single word you are saying here. The draft is a crap shoot and even former players, GM's pundits, Mel Kiper get it wrong ALL THE TIME. As I am so fond of saying, there are thousands of moving parts. A QB that turns out to be a bust with one team could have been a Pro Bowler in another set of circumstances. Zac Wison with the Jets flames out. The Evil Zac Wilson that goes through the transporter, and ends up in the mirror universe without a beard instead of a headband and wins the Super Bowl.
