    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I seriously doubt the first QB doesn't come off the board until #3 though. That would be surprising.
  3. Elijah Cummings is not ****ing around.
  4. Wife and I took a vacation a few years ago to southern Florida. Turned off the GPS and grabbed a map. Only rule was not interstates.

    It's been an incredible month. Game of Thrones returns, Tiger wins the Masters, the next week is Easter, the next week Avengers Endgame, the NFL draft and the Battle of Winterfell with NBA playoffs mixed in between all this. Whew.

    I don't want a QB in the 3rd/4th or later unless it's someone toolsy like Tyree Jackson. We have low ceiling game manager types already, just punt entirely if you don't love someone in the 1st imo.

    I know people want edge, OL, TE, WR, hell even QB...I want all that as well and go back and forth on my priority. But we really need a stud FS. Having this potentially great young DL is going to get very frustrating if teams can just stretch the field on us anyways, at will. And they will. We don't want to waste this DL talent, edge and FS are the two spots that can act as serious force multipliers there.

    My apologies.
  9. I keep telling this to twa but he keeps ignoring me.
  10. Trump had the complete intelligence report over a year in advance of Helsinki and he sided with Putin about a week after a dozen Russian military intelligence agents were indicted for election interference. Who is making excuses? /House burns down CousinsCowgirl: Now we know that the house was flammable. That arsonist is a hero.
  11. Trump doesn't get credit for Mueller Report if he told several of his subordinate to sabotage it. This is a completely different conversation if they actually followed his orders.
  12. With the regards to the first part, I think you're completely off base. Russian interference would have absolutely been on our minds as not only would the investigation still have happened, but we also wouldn't have a POTUS quite literally obstructing justice in order to keep the investigation's findings from coming to light. Which means we'd hopefully be working on robust ways to thwart it in the future. As it is, with Trump in the WH they've done essentially nothing about future interference. This whole line of spin is just so truly preposterous on its face. I really have no clue what your intention is with it. Even Sean Hannity might give you a weird look for pushing this one. With regards to the second part, I partially agree. Part of me does think he should have said "ok, **** you then, Mitch Unamerican McConnell" and brought it out anyway. That being said, Obama was wary about being seen as potentially using his office and intel services in order to influence/sway an election. Of course now because of that we have a guy in the WH who literally uses his office and intel for corrupt motives pretty much out in the open. So yeah...

    It's too much for one weekend. I'm going to wait to see Endgame until after the draft is over I think. I don't want to, but the draft only comes once. Thank God that Easter was last weekend. Can you imagine having to waste all of that time with your family during a weekend like this? Even still I can feel in my bones that my wife is going to ask me to take a day trip with her somewhere this weekend. She has an incredible knack for always requesting one out of the blue on draft weekend. Thankfully it starts on Thursday now and leaves Sunday open.

    Love, love, love Warren Sharp, but my exposure is exclusively with his podcast, and interviews he gives on other podcasts. He's fantastic. Love that guy. I never paid for his stuff because if I remember, it's insanely expensive to get access to his material (like fantasylabs which also have some absolutely brilliant analytics guys running the show). Does he put out a cheaper book during the summer? I don't buy books anymore, but I might make an exception for Sharp (for instance, he made an absolute killing last year on the Colts O/U to name one example of his insights, he was all over that, believing people were severely undervaluing the Colts after doing a deep dive into their performance game to game, play to play).

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    This is the key week to week in the NFL imo. And my biggest complaint against Gruden in the prep department. We always just try to play our game regardless. Sometimes that doesn't even change after the opening offensive script or even after the half. It's infuriating to know a team's 5th CB is lined up outside due to injuries or anything else and then watch us continue to follow our same gameplan running for 3.3 YPC up the middle on 1st and 2nd down. Part of it is lacking a QB who knows who to go after, but Gruden's lack of killer instinct in that regard also trickles down.
  16. Sounds like another excuse, I'm sure Trump didn't have complete intelligence when he said that as well. (in more ways than one )
  17. I hate both of yall, actually. And I can admit that. Thank you, Donald.

    Maybe. He would be the sexy name that will sell tickets. Seems unlikely though that he drops. I still think the Cards take him but you never know. I don't want to trade up period. But I could live with it more if it's Murray as opposed to Haskins because I do think Murray will be a stud. The question about Murray though is can he stay healthy and stick to football.
  19. Meaning the part where Obama did not have complete intelligence in real time sufficient to take significant actions, or the part where Trump has clear intelligence from each of the 16 US intelligence agencies, yet publicly takes the word of Vladimir Putin over all of them?

    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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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
