    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    W/WR, my big metrics I focus on are Dominator (or Market Share) and Breakout Age, if those two factors aren't in play, generally I look no further. These two factors are more directly connected to successful NFL WR's than things like Burst Score, or Agility or even to some extent 40 time (although there are thresholds, if you pull an Evander Holyfield at WR, you're screwed, but few are that god awful, and even if you are, there are some all time studs that didn't hit blistering times like Jerry Rice, Anquan Boldin and Keenan Allen (although Allen's 40 was heavily impacted by injury recovery time, he never should've run at the combine in the first place) that made it anyway, they're just outliers. Riley Ridley's Dominator is 28th percentile and his breakout age is 14th percentile. When I looked through the top 40-45 WR's in the league last week I don't recall a single one with a breakout age that low (though perhaps there was, in the form of a guy who didn't breakout period, I just can't remember, I just know w/certainty that there were only 3 WR's with breakout ages below that 40th-50th percentile cohort. McLaurin is even worse, dominator sits at 17th percentile and he never broke out period. W/guys like that, the hit rate is in the 1 percentile area. In other words it's not even worth considering for an undrafted free agent, let alone day 2 or day 3. Generally speaking, WR's are all about breakout age, and dominator, w/some thresholds being met in terms of size and athleticism, but within a rather broad spectrum of acceptability (for instance, the league appears to be moving away again from an obsession with size/speed freak outside options, and opening itself up to smaller, faster players, and the relatively new and evolving Big Slot guy which is ever growing in importance). TE's are kind of similar to WR (when it comes to pass catching options, I'm not speaking to pure in line blockers) w/more importance on the combine #'s than WR. RB's interestingly are very very very much about the combine and production markers. You look at the 40 first, you look at the market share production #'s next, you look at the 3 cone, especially if he has pass catching skills, then burst score. Every once in a while a guy breaks through like Kareem Hunt, but generally, if a RB is going to be successful, he has to time better than 4.65 (it seems to be a threshold, slower than that, and the hit rate drops to around 1%), generally the 40 is as predictive of anything other than draft slotting when digging for success rates.
  3. Rightfully so. His court date hasn't even come up yet, has it ? Noone knows what the law, and what the league, will do about him. Probably not much, but there's no guarantee.
  4. The first step in fixing a problem is to admit you have a problem. Donald Trump is exposing a lot of problems.

    I think it would be for Murray. Said it since he declared and went all in on football, Dan was probably salivating.

    If this is accurate then it raise a major red flag around Haskins, over involved parents with their own agenda are never a good thing; https://www.nj.com/giants/2019/04/heres-the-strange-conversation-i-had-with-dawyne-haskins-father-before-he-hung-up-on-me.html

    Forgot how he said it but it didn't come off as a slam on Allen -- thinking about it some more he gave the vibe that more people have questions about Lock now than they did about Allen last year. But he's more sure of Lock now than he was last year of Allen. Palmer came off dead sure Lock will be a good QB.

    I think IF we were in the market to do that move to #3 we'd have to ship out a key player as part of the deal. Can't see the logic, unless the owner is in love with Haskins of course....

    Yeah if this isn't real then either someone from the Redskins is purposely leaking it for whatever reason or the Jets are leaking it to find a trade partner. Because this idea that the Redskins is the team most opt to trade up is all over the place and going on for a long time. The beat guys for the team don't seem as convinced but aren't ruling it out.
  11. Execution isn't the deterrent it could be because not enough people are being executed. People already try not to get caught and can do a lot of damage in the meantime. They can be just as dangerous in jail, heaven forbid they are recruiting like gangs here and terrorist groups do in europe (big reason i believe death penalty should be expanded). Some people are too far gone for a deterent to matter, but that's not the only reason to have a death penalty.

    ^^ that potential jump to #3 is frightening Hopefully it's BS to make the Giants blow some draft capital.

    No from what was posted he said had reservations about Allens success (he was wrong about those reservations????).
  14. Look at the results, not his actions. I’m not sure how you could come to a different conclusion. I don’t think Russian intervention in our elections would have been in the forefront of Americans minds if Clinton were elected, do you. Im not giving him credit for it... I’m just saying, look at the results... Pathetic excuse. Obama was the president. He could/should have stood alone. He didn’t even have to worry about re-election so I don’t understand why he didn’t.

    In case it hasn't been posted:
  17. Well to be fair, President Obama did try to get Mitch to come on board with addressing this particular issue. It was rejected by Mitch. Now could have President Obama done more? Sure, but it would have divided the country terribly because he would have been roasted for trying to interfere. The intelligence community didn't have all the information yet. Wasn't it during that time that the FISA applications were being processed? A dem. president did start to take action, but was rebuffed.

    Jets reporter. Bruce stay strong. Don't trade up to #3 I'd presume to trade up that far it has to include a 2020 first rounder. I am not a Stidham guy but still I'd actually rather take Stidham in the third round as opposed to Haskins in the first. I don't think the two are that different of a player. Both strong arm QBs with questionable skills as to how they perform with pressure-pass rush. Both have strong arms and IMO projections. So I'd rather spend less draft capital on a player like that. I know am going against the grain on Haskins but i do have some company on it. Right now for me its Lock if they have to take a QB in the first. if its a 2nd rounder: Rosen. If they drop further Finley. I am perfectly happy with no QB but I expect them to pull the trigger on someone.
  19. Please tell me this is a troll/joke/sarcasm post. Please. PLEASE.

    I really need to write out the full name. I'm talking about Marquise Brown, not A.J. Brown. I have A.J. Brown as probably the #1 WR prospect in the draft. It isn't because I see Randy Moss upside with him, I don't, it's because he has pretty much zero distinct flaws, and has a super high floor and one of the highest ceilings amongst the WR's in the draft, he combines upside with minimal risk, ideal for a team like ours that simply can't draft WR's worth a damn to save it's life (I do recall that rumors were, we were targeting Michael Thomas three years ago, so perhaps we almost hit on WR back then, or that was just nonsense, not sure).
