  1. Maybe with Swearinger we can persuade him to come to D.C. I think we have a pretty good shot. The only big issue is that Mathieu is inexperienced at FS, could play slot corner for sure and could play SS. We have a whole roster of SS's and it would be absurd to pay 9M for a slot corner. As much as I would like the deal to go down, he would just be an unnecessary luxury.
  2. 6M is decent....but why tie up so much money into Brown when he won't be able to get the same money elsewhere. Bruce is a money man...wait it out and Brown will be back. We may be able to sign him for far less that 6M.

    2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    I'm just not overly impressed with Roquan Smith....he sheds blocks very well and is a strong tackler, I just don't see the read and react from him. He seems like an athlete playing out of position when I watch him. If Tremaine Edmunds is anywhere close I say we trade and snag him. He's all over the place and has a better feel for the position. Smith has some mysterious medical issue, so we may be able to trade back and still get him though.
  4. Suh has dominated since day 1 in the league and continues to. He played 83% of the defensive snaps for the Dolphins. That ranks him 7 in the whole NFL. He has had games where he has played every snap. I think he's a warrior. If we could nab him for 6M I would be game...highly unlikely though. I would pass on him based on money not performance
  5. Super excited that they offered Trent Murphy....he's so valuable to this defense. I just hope we can seal the deal with him.
  6. Completely agree....Murphy would be #1 on my list. I think he offers a ton of versatility and could be re-signed for a rock bottom price tag since he's coming off of an injury and suspension. Brown is a tackling machine but I would honestly prefer a local stud in Navorro Bowman who grades out better and plays at a higher level. Bowman played for pennies last year in Oakland and graded out as one of the best ILB in the league last year. Brown may break the bank...9M+

    2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    I watched his USC tape and he looked really good. I still think he is coached up very well and he's maxed out. I don't see a lot of upside. He is Matt Ioannidis 2.0; which is not a bad thing b/c I think Ioannids is really good. He's not as athletic as Ioannidis coming out. He's a very safe player but a guy who we already have on the roster. Settle is only 20 years old, pass rush efficiency he was ranked 10th in CFB and he's one of the biggest bodies in the draft. His blend of size, skill and quickness are rare. I like Phillips I just think Settle has more upside and skill; he's not the technician that Phillips is nor has he developed his strength yet. Both are good prospects though.

    Tim Settle is the guy....his combine numbers were pedestrian but hopefully we can nab him in the 2nd round. He's a flat out stud and never stays blocked. I watched the tape on Phillips and I just don't see it. I see a slow footed lineman with good hands. I think he's coached up very well but offers very little in the pass game. Settle is legit and he's going to be a stud.

    I think Fitzpatrick is overrated. All of his snaps the last 2 years have been taken as a nickle defender. I don't see ball skills, elite footwork and if he can't play on an island in college how is he going to do it in the NFL. Tremaine Edmunds and Derwin James are the most dynamic players in this draft; they are going to be studs. If we can't draft one of those guys then we should trade out of the pick. I would be tempted to draft Vita Vea though. To me he's about the next safest bet in regards to our needs.
  10. I think the experienced vet thing in our case might be a little overrated. Ryan Grant is young, but he's a pro. I think he brings a lot of wisdom with his routes, ability to prepare over the summer and his tape speaks for itself. Plus, The only thing we are missing is that guy who can stretch the field. The guy that is a bit under the radar is Tyrell Williams. He's a really good intermediate route runner and is certainly a deep threat. I think he is a more polished version of Terrell Pryor.

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    If there was a way to back out of this it would be a festivus miracle. Ideally, the trade gets revoked for tampering or something of that nature and Bruce Allen gets fired. We need a competent GM. This is just insane, i'm just waiting for this nightmare to be over.

    Does anyone know if it is a 3rd rounder this year or next year?

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    I agree....I would prefer offering the 2nd round pick instead of a 3rd and Fuller. This is total bs. We will lose Breeland, Fuller and Kirk and get worse at QB and CB...and lose a 3rd round pick. This is a nightmare scenario right now.
