  1. That's true. I addressed that in my follow up. So much of that is position and contract dependent. Baker started for 5 years. Anthony Becht started for 9 years. Kyle Brady 13. Brian Winters is a 7 year starter that is still in the league. Do we want 4 of those? If the QB hits we are golden. If he bombs having 4 David Harris isn't making us win many more games.
  2. Finding starters for a 2-14 team is not that difficult. Especially one that traded away their starting QB and had departurues./trades of WR, 2 OLB, DE, 2 or 3 ILB, 2 RB, etc. I guess that having a 7-10 starter means they are a bit better than the Chris Baker, Victor Hobson, Erik Coleman level guys I think of when I hear "We drafted starters!" To start for 7 years you have to be a legit 2nd contract guy. Not somebody that just plays the position okay. Otherwise they wouldn't get that 2nd contract and start for another 3+ years. This is remarkably premature, even for this place. You
  3. I think when people start counting starters acquired as a good draft, my eyes glaze over. Did we get Victor Hobson, Chris Baker and two other guys like that? If so, big ******* deal. There is a reason we talk about difference makers. They make a difference. Just getting starters is not enough. You need a guy or two every couple of years that is more than that.
  4. I get that, but if you are worried about a crowded room, do you cut one of the better players or the guy from the bottom of the roster? Personally I'd dump Pete Guerrero before Perine.
  5. I understand wanting the guy, but I want no part of Engram. I feel like he is a rich man's Herndon. He is a way better player, but for all his flashes of brilliance, he kills drives and makes obvious blunders. Frustrating to me.
  6. Even if you want him, what kind of stupidity is it to automatically cut rostered players? The rosters are at, what? 90? There are plenty of UDFA and futures guys to cut before getting to last year's 4th rounders.
  7. More importantly, who cares? Lots of guys don't play a full season. At $700k that is irrelevant. It is when you are paying guys like Mosley and Trumaine Johnson that injuries seem crippling. Apparently as recently as week 3 of last year the Lions valued him more than Ty Johnson who was probably our best back in 2020. OTOH, he was outperformed by Swift and Peterson. Interesting guy, up to the staff to determine if they think he is done.
  8. Except for Guidry I think those are all hand-timed. That generally cuts a significant amount. Particularly if you have a friendly tweeter.
  9. I looked him up. Came from a teeny tiny school and made a name for himself at Northwestern's pro day. The Dolphins signed him right after the draft, then put him on the practice squad when the season started. SF signed him off the Dolphins practice squad. They waived him yesterday, presumably to make room from some UDFA. Seems like an ST cover guy.
  10. Last season Chris Hogan started on opening day. Tons of snaps went to Hogan, Jeff and Vyncint Smith, Berrios, Cager, Josh Malone. If the guy can play he will have the opportunity. Mims, Crowder and Davis are not exactly iron men and Moore is like 5'8". I don't know much about the player, but the thing that worries me is his catch rate. Then again, he has not had the best QBs.
  11. I kind of feel like this too. I have to, it is the only thing that gives me hope.
  12. Eh. I am not sure that Seattle drafts well. They do well in the later rounds finding guys and developing them. At the top they are sketchy and on the OLine they have kind of sucked since Okung in 2010. Ifedi is pretty much a disater. Pocic underwhelming. In general, I am usually more interested in their late rounders and UDFA. Imagine how Jet fans would act if we had drafted Malik "I need to talk to your supervisor" McDowell in the first round. Funny thing is, the Seahawks are known for picking traits based guys and not deviating from their type, but their success is predicating o
  13. It certainly indicates that they like the players and they have an excellent chance of making the roster. I just don't think it gives them even a tiny leg up if somebody outplays them. They could cut 25 of those guys and it wouldn't be as much dead money as they carry for Darnold.
  14. People are giving away roster spots over $200K? Are you ******* kidding me? Even with all the cap space, this team is eating $21M in dead money. $200k barely guarantees a spot in camp. EDIT: To point out that it is actually $21,178,273. Nobody cares about the $178,273. That is because $200K is meaningless to an NFL salary cap.
  15. FWIW, I usually pick for Seattle and their DB rules are pretty well known. Pinnock was one of the top guys that fit their profile. which-cornerbacks-pass-seahawks-athletic-measurable-thresholds
  16. I like Fatukasi, but I don't see him as a priority for this D. For Rex or Parcells? Sure. I think these guys want more slashers than stuffers. I'd like to have him back, but if not there will be other guys to take what will probably be a part time role. Franklin-Myers is on the team. He is in the 4th year of the contract he signed as a 4th rounder of the Rams (I think it was the pick they got for Ogletree). I like him. I wonder what these guys will think of him and if he will thrive. Kyle Phillips will be an RFA. I feel the same about him as JFM, but a little less optimistic
  17. So you'd have passed on Joe Thomas, or forced him to move inside?
  18. Very different for the Jets? That ****sucker Maccagnan took Leonard Williams partially based on arm length and laughed at Pepper Johnson for wanting Grady Jarrett in the 5th. These rules are nice when they work. When they don't, they suck and limit you. I think using length as a big contributor can help you find value, but when everybody does it, it loses the edge.
  19. I could be wrong, but the Patriots getting Barmore in the 2nd worries me much more than Mac Jones in the first.
  20. They didn't exactly already have Mark Andrews. Hurst was 25 overall and 3rd rounder Mark Andrews has never had a season as bad as Hurst's best. I wouldn't have a problem with kicking the tires, but this guy is far from a must get, and he is going to be a free agent. He is talented, but not a top TE. On a team with a fanbase this excited about Kenny Yerboah, I wanting to go after him.
  21. I started to feel much better after I realized that the safeties are going to be playing LB. Then it made me wonder what he had against JOK. I do feel those kind of tweener Taylor Mays types can be valuable, but you can get them later. The Raiders did burn a 3rd on Tanner Muse last year. OTOH, I also think that small shifty slot-type receivers are generally value picks you can get later and they drafted a 5'8" WR at the top of the 2nd. We will see if Elijah Moore can win at the outside. A lot of interesting guys and they can run. Probably be a bunch of flashes that get people exci
  22. Didn't Connor Hughes trade up in the Athletic's mock draft for Vera-Tucker? I don't think that wasn't much of a projection.
  23. Who is Neal? I thought Hewitt and Langi were starters, but I guess Basham is the one that signed with Dallas. I'm not particularly worried about replacing either, but I guess it could be considered a need. I wouldn't have a problem with the pick, if they have a plan on how to use him. I just see his size as an issue that limits the teams with real interest and a valid reason for him to drop. I know he is listed at 221, but at that weight he declined to run. IIRC he was playing around 214 and he is skinny and his hands are small enough that I'd consider him unlikely to put on much mo
  24. I was honestly surprised that Walter Football was still around, but as I said earlier, I recently re-discovered them. Your critique is unfair and shows a lack of understanding of their rankings. They have rankings somewhere, but the rankings you are discussing are purely based on Charlie Campbell talking to teams (I think it is usually area scouts) and guessing where he thinks players will go. If you read the reviews, his ranking of Fields says: I also think that the guy that wrote the review you are complaining about is "Walt" not Charlie Campbell, so that represents two diffe
