For those making fun of how he talks, you are grade A dipsh*ts.  Biggest day of his life.  

Hi all, been a while. This is why I don’t bother with this sh*t anymore. K thx bai

Maccagnan reportedly thought Edoga was a defensive tackle, but accidentally took OL instead.

And drafted a blocking tight end which helps both the pass and run games when faceing teams with a strong pass rush by adding an extra blocker

The blocking TE they drafted also caught 26 balls of of 30 targets for a 12.2 average.  Think Sam is really going to like him

Yeah. Unless Polite has a come-to-Jesus moment in the next three months, the team isn't any better today than it was last week, and it's a declining situation moving forward because Bell is old and our decent offensive linemen are free agents. Macc is so deep into redundancy that he's just swapping his old lame pickups with new lame pickups.  Hopefully the rumors are true and Macc is on the way out or we're just spinning our wheels in perpetuity.

Maybe this will make you start rooting for another team ? One can only hope.

Agreed, frankly.

What does even mean?

Apparently thinks that this player was taken to replace Lee.  Believes there are only 11 roster spots for defensive players.  We should never look to improve the roster, we have LBs, who needs to draft one. 

Of course we can say the same about every player drafted by every single team in the NFL but.....

Can you tell me something good about our new tackle? Like, its known around campus that he only stops working out to go feed homeless children, or something...

As far as community service, USC won the National Community Services Award...again.  All these athletes participate.  This takes care of the good guy part.

Lot of good about Chuma once he matured and grew up.  Talented and nasty once he got serious about the game, stayed his senior year to prove that.  He is very happy to team up with Sam again.  Sam “mr. clean” is happy, that counts for something.

Agreed.  I initially was disappointed we didn't take Allen at 3 but with addition of Polite and the Edoga, he is doing a nice job.  Tesco and Cashman could also make the roster and make meaningful contributions.  

Tomlinson sucks.  Can’t catch and gets too many penalties blocking.  It’s crappy guys like this who make darnold’s job harder.  The tesco pick helps the offense as much as drafting a guard in the 2nd or 3rd round.

here a profile

Blake Cashman LB Minnesota

by Drew Boylhart • April 5, 2019

STRENGTHS
Blake has the talent to be a solid linebacker in the right system. He has good size and speed and does a good job playing within the game plan of the defensive system his college team uses. He has made impact players and has shown leadership skills that are needed to be a coach on the field and that makes him more valuable. Blake has the enough change of direction skills, to be used off the line in zone coverages with the play in front of him. He does a good job recognizing and reacting and has a good burst to the play, making tackles behind the line of scrimmage. Blake in the right defensive system will make impact plays and can become a core player and a fan favorite for the team that selects him.

CONCERNS
Blake does not have the elite athleticism or size and length to make him the type of player who can be used in multiple styles of defenses. Blake also losses leverage when tackling because once he engages he stops his feet and then tries to muscle the player down to the ground. He must learn to tackle “through” the player and not “at” the player. He also has to gain better strength in his hands to make the sure tackle. Blake has to play with more passion and commitment to what he sees in front of him. His initial reaction is quick but than his follow up reaction is too careful and lacks conviction. Blake also doesn’t meet blocks and shed them and make tackles, he goes around the blocks and at the next level that will not work.

TALENT BOARD ROUND 4.39 
Blake has been an impact player for his college team because he is in the right defense that keeps big bodies off of him so that he can roam free and make tackles. If he is in that system at the next level he can impact for the team that selects him too. That being said that doesn’t change Blake’s ability to make tackles with better passion and aggressiveness and form. He still has to get stronger and tackle better. He still has to get better in coverage so that he can be used in man to man coverages or, Blake will bounce around the NFL. Now profiling linebackers is very difficult for me because linebackers in most cases are what I call, “system related”. This means that player fits a certain system and when that defensive coordinator is fired, in most cases that linebacker will be let go also. When that DC gets hired, that LB will be signed once again, to run that system on the field for that DC. Blake will be that type of linebacker and that doesn’t mean he won’t succeed, it just means as long as that defense is good and that DC is on the team and Blake doesn’t carry to big a salary, he can have a very productive and long career.

At the very least it gives you the blocking TE this team needed.  We all knew Tomlinson was garbage, and ineffective.   Hopefully Wesco can add some value there.  As a receiver he looks OK, a little awkward, but serviceable.

Quinnen replaces Leonard, who replaced Sheldon and Mo. Edoga replaces Shell. Wesco replaces Tomlinson and Leggett. Cashman replaces Lee. This isn't how you build a roster when you're the guy who drafted the guys you're replacing three years later. Polite is the only guy from this class that moves the roster forward, and he's a wackbag who couldn't keep it together for three months prior to the draft. Looking forward, there are more holes on the rosters than there will be guys to fill them because Macc spends every resource patching holes that he, himself, created.

I like that you're echoing this. 

Also, Leveon replaces McGuire and Cannon, who replaces Crowell, who replaces Powell... 

Crowder replaces Ardarius and Hansen, who replaced Kearse, who replaced Marshall and Decker...

But I think DT, TE and LB are the most gratuitous examples... basically 5 positions, constantly black holes for assets.
