    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I was watching Thomas last night too. I was able to flip back and forth between the Georgia offense and the Texas offense pretty well. Those were both good games too. I would say that there isn't as much difference in ability level between the Georgia and Texas offenses as you'd think, and that if Texas hadn't played LSU so early in the season, they'd have a real chance at a run to the CFP. I love Thomas, he reminds me of Trent too. And I'm getting to the point where I love Sam Cosmi too. Texas does interesting things with him as a blocker and they run behind him a lot. There was one touchdown where they moved him over to the right side almost as a tight end and then ran an option play through his gap and it was pretty cool to see. He is a really good run blocker and the protections look way better this season than they did last year. He's a different player now. Keaontay Ingram is a nice running back too, he had one little dumpoff that he took for like 20+ yards and broke about 15 tackles. He'll be one to watch for 2021. I'm hoping Cosmi goes pro this spring because I think we'd have a chance to buy low on him. If he goes back to school, Texas could have a NC caliber offense and he could play his way into being a top ten pick. Thus I expect him to go back to school. But if he comes out early, he's big time potential value, and a solution at LT if we pick too late for a bonafide stud like Thomas. Addressing your comment about RB, I wouldn't discount it early in the draft. Either in the first or from trading Trent or from moving down, we could be in a spot where BPA meets need with RB early n in the draft. I think Guice's injury history puts his career in jeopardy. It's sad, because I really enjoy the way he plays and wish that he'd gotten a fair shake here, but I'm not sure we can bank on him. And if we don't have Guice, then RB becomes a pressing need. I'm sold on Swift too and he looks like a first rounder. But I like the depth of this RB class far better than last year's or 2018's, where the bottom really fell out on the class after the second round. So RB could be in play in the middle rounds as well. There is going to be real committee RB value late on day 2 and early on day 3. I'm buying in on Jonathan Taylor too, and right now his projections put him somewhere between the late first and early second--Nick Chubb/Sony Michel value. He's better than them, IMO. Yes, he definitely benefits from strong blocking between the tackles, but he's got elite vision and patience. He's the kind of back that sees the tiny creases coming before they flash open. Superior instincts. And he's also got open field speed paired with power. I don't see him being a Saquon-style runner that can just create everything behind the line and routinely beat an NFL defense to the edge. But he could be monstrously productive in a classic one-cut zone blocking system and running zone options out of shotgun heavy packages behind a line with good interior blocking. And he's got a Josh Jacobs/Saquon Barkley type of build that holds up really well in the NFL. He's got some Josh Jacobs in him for sure. I also see a little bit of Frank Gore too, less twitch and start-stop ability but better size and power. Similar vision. He could potentially be a really, really strong first punch in a one-two punch with Bryce Love. Najee Harris has also been showing out the last two weeks. I watched the replay of the Alabama Southern Miss game and everything just looks so easy for him. He definitely feels like an equal part of that ridiculous Bama arsenal. I like that he's got strong value in the pass game, and that catch and run against South Carolina was freaking incredible. He'll draw comparisons to Derek Henry and Bo Scarborough, but he's something different from them. He's not as high cut as them and he's a better receiver. Drafttek also currently has AJ Dillon ranked 94. That feels like awesome value for a late third round pick. These guys are pretty exciting candidates for the power-back spot in our committee. I think we can either maneuver around the draft on day one and/or early day two and either get a stud RB prospect, or sit tight for strong value late on day two or early on day three.

    God I love Sundays. I knock out two shifts while being the only person in the facility for the most part. Get to be methodical and crafty, my window of time to get there and leave is up to me. I freaking get to watch football on the bigscreen while doing work during commercials. Watched Texas/OSU last night at work. My weekends are dominated by work but it's pretty f****** rad.

    New Rambo has terrible reviews. Not surprised, really. The whole “Mexican druglord bad guy” thing feels awfully played out. I’d rather watch him shoot up the halls of Purdue Pharma.

  10. Big difference Landon is 25 been to three bowls and has been named to an all pro team.Bradon is 27 has 2 probowls and count them 0 zero all pro seasons.Landon's play on the field justifies his deal and his credentials prove is among the best at his position in the NFL.Its alot harder to find a 25 year old three time pro bolwer and one time all pro saftey than it is to find 27 year old two time pro bowl guard.

    whew...spent all day at the tournament yesterday. All tournamented out for the summer. I love the warm weather but I'm kinda looking forward to chilly Fall temps and sweater weather. #bringonautumn
  16. Exactly. Also the Cubs just aren't that good and I still think the Brewers are due a bit of a down spiral, although their schedule may not allow it...until we ether them in the Wild Card game. Which like riggo said, makes no difference to me whether its at home or away. In fact, looking at our postseason history, I'd prefer it be away anyway.

  21. With the OT injuries around the league I think its safe to say Bruce is not trading Trent this year. And even if he eventually does trade him, he will likely not get the same offers he is getting currently. Trent's value has to be at its highest early in the year with OTs dropping around the league. Dare I think short of additional wave of competing teams LTs dropping in the next few weeks, today is his peak value. Trent sticking to his guns and holding out the entire year may be enough to convince Bruce his efforts are futile, and peddle him this offseason on the cheap.
  22. Remember that buffoon old red face Scotty Mac drafted him 5th to be a RT not a friggin guard.

    Have you ever smoked Weed before???

    He loved weed. Then the vomiting began. Months later, he died The doctors told Regina Denney and her son Brian Smith Jr. what was causing his severe vomiting and abdominal pain. Neither the teenager nor his mother believed what they said: smoking weed. Smoking marijuana, the two knew, was recommended to cancer patients to spur the appetite. How could it lead to Brian's condition? As the months went by and the pounds slipped off Brian’s once healthy frame, it was clear that whatever was causing his stomach troubles had just the opposite effect. Brian kept smoking. The symptoms continued on and off. Last October, after another severe bout of vomiting, the teenager died. He was 17 years old. Five months later, as Denney pored over a coroner’s report for answers, she finally accepted that marijuana played a pivotal role in her son’s death. The autopsy report, which Denney received in March, attributed her son's death to dehydration due to cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome. "We had never heard about this, had never heard about marijuana causing any vomiting. He and I were like, 'Yeah, I think it’s something else,' ” Denney said. “Brian did not believe that was what it was because of everything we had ever been told about marijuana. … It didn’t make any sense.” Cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, also known as CHS, can arise in response to long-term cannabis use. The syndrome consists of vomiting, nausea and abdominal pain, which can often be alleviated by taking hot showers. Doctors say CHS is on the rise, but they are not certain why. Marijuana is more available than in years past, and it is more potent. Rarely does CHS result in death. Click on the link for the full article
  24. Wow, really sucks hearing this. My movie fanatic friends and I were talking in our chat the other day, 2019 has been yet another really disappointing year for Hollywood. I was hoping Ad Astra might somewhat salvage this otherwise trash year....nope. I keep scrolling through the 2015 movies and there were so many bangers. Easily the best year for movies of the 21st century. The last four years have been ass compared to it. Oh well, bring on 2020.

    Jordan Reed Is In Concussion Protocol

    What bothers me about this is that it speaks to a deficiency in team management. Not about Jordan, but about his backups. Why was Holtz cut and put on the practice squad (only to be immediately stolen?) Why was Holtz cut on the same week we wound up having to place two other players on IR? Now, Holtz isn't a game changer or an all star. Heck, he might never be better than a back up, but the team needed that back up. Until Reed was up and going and CLEARED to play there was no need to demote him. It was a dumb, short-sighted, and over-optimistic move.
