  1. 2018 ES GMs Mock Draft is complete!

    Arizona's final tally: Rd. 1 - Pick 10 - Traded pick #79 to move up from #15 for Lamar Jackson, QB Rd. 2 - Pick 47 - Ronnie Harrison, S Rd. 3 - Pick 79 - TRADED Rd. 3 - Pick 97 - Equanimeous St. Brown, WR Rd. 4 - Pick 134 - Brandon Parker, OT Rd. 5 - NO PICK Rd. 6 - Pick 182 - D.J. Reed, CB Rd. 7 - Pick 254 - Sean Welsh, OG/C Pretty happy overall. - Got my franchise QB without having to break the bank. - Got 2 high motor, instuinctual playmakers on the defensive side to help recover from losing Honey Badger and keep the Cardinals competitive with while their offense adjusts to a new guy under center. - Got 2 high character o- lineman who should immediately be able to help improve an offense that still runs through David Johnson - Got a high upside WR who has the benefit of learning from Larry Fitzgerald for at least a year before being thrown to the wolves Full disclosure: - I had my eye on D.J. Chark in the 3rd but he was taken a few picks before. St. Brown has more long term potential to be an all around better receiver but I think Chark could have more day 1 impact stretching the field and taking the pressure off a recovering David Johnson. I'd probably have tried to add to the WR corp with FAs (Allen Robinson, Dez Bryant, or Donte Moncrief) prior to the draft and count on spending another high pick on the position next year as well. - Similarly, I wanted Ito Smith as my final pick in the 7th but he was taken a few picks before. I think he would fit in really well with Arizona's offense and provide a cheap insurance policy/tag team partner/additional playmaker for David Johnson while he gets back up to speed from last year's injury.

    At # 254, with their final pick the Arizona Cardinals select Sean Welsh, OG/C Iowa The Iowa Hawkeyes aren’t as high a profile teams as Alabama or Ohio State, but they have a reputation of putting good offensive linemen in to the NFL. Iowa is one of the few schools still using a “pro style” attack in the age of the spread-option and that makes them a must-watch for anyone looking for offensive linemen. They might not get the best and most athletic prospects, but at the very least their products will be well-coached and well-versed in NFL run schemes before they get to the league. Right guard Sean Welsh isn’t the kind of big, imposing lineman for which Iowa is typically known, but he is a very experienced, and intriguing, prospect. Welsh has a solid frame, which will make the transition from guard to center much easier. He tends to block low and sticks with defenders to detour them away from the play. He possesses a strong initial burst and is efficient at redirecting blockers. The former Hawkeye excels more at pass protection, but Welsh is also solid at blocking the inside run. Welsh has experience at right tackle, right guard and center, so he is capable and versatile enough to play multiple positions on the offensive line. Utility players are great to have on any team.

    Arizona's next pick does an excellent job of always being involved in or around the play. He showed a fantastic ability to play the ball in the air using his ball skills, athletic ability, and instincts to break on the ball. He has the versatility and athletic ability to move inside in the NFL and be a dominant nickel cornerback, possessing elite ball skills and always in good position to make a play on the ball. For his size, he is very aggressive in the run game and has the desire to get in on tackles. Along with being a great defensive player, he is an electric returner who can be a dangerous kick/punt returner in the NFL. 2 inches taller and he would be considered a first round talent. It didn't stop me from drafting Johnathan Jones in 2016 and it's not gonna stop me here. I think he has the same passion and drive to be a success in the league and will leave everything on the field every week. with the 182nd pick in the NFL draft, the Arizona Cardinals are ecstatic to select D.J. Reed, CB, Kansas State

  6. They should change it to throwback Thursdays and just give teams the option to wear their old school uniforms instead

    Love the OP. I said it in another thread, Allen's approach seems to prioritize saving money more than adding wins. So every year we have a team that overperforms and manages to get to 8-8. Then during the offseason, he tries to find a cheaper way to hit that same level of talent. So now were still and 8-8 team, but we're a much CHEAPER 8-8 team? Hooray ? I mean, IN THEORY, this strategy lets you hold out for those few guys who will bump you over the top, but Bruce hasn't shown any ability to identify WHO those "over the top" pieces are, nor does he have a good enough reputation around the league to entice those players to come to the Redskins. Or he DOES have them here but alienates them by penny pinching until they want to leave. So we just sit here season after season with the consolation prize that we didn't overspend. That's almost as good as a Super Bowl right?

    This 6’7, 300 pound tackle is a machine. He throws guys like rag dolls and Arizona has taken notice. He used to block for Tarik Cohen before he was drafted by the Chicago Bears. This guy has been opening holes his entire career, and he will continue opening holes for David Johnson at the next level very soon. With the 134th overall pick, the Arizona Cardinals select: BRANDON PARKER, OT, North Carolina AT&T

    Does that mean they only brought RG3 in to show him how NOT to transition to the Pros?

    Doesn't Callahan call all the running plays?

    If a guy voluntarily sticks his hand in the deep fryer, I'm not going to give him credit for how well he bandages himself up afterwards. I'm gonna be critical of his decision making skills and question why he made such a dumb move in the first place. Especially when it was entirely avoidable, and he made such a huge deal of telling the fanbase "relax, just trust me, it's really easy to avoid sticking your hand in the deep fryer"

    False alarm!

    Sweet! Extra pick! Edit: looks like they lost a 6th for AP, but later gained one for trading tackle Jared Veldheer to the Broncos.

    Btw @Epochalypse, looking at the OP, you have the Cardinals in the 6th round with pick number #182. I think they gave their 6th away to the Saints for Adrian Peterson right? Or did they get another compensatory one later? Just making sure so we're not wasting time once it comes up waiting on the wrong team to make a pick.....

    Pettis was my pick if st. Brown was taken. You would have been unhappy with me either way
