    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Probably the single funniest part of the trade is that Clark did far worse supposedly, in a domestic violence incident that got him booted off Michigan in his draft year, then what Kareem Hunt did. However there were three key differences for the Chiefs. #1: Hunt was caught on video doing it. This also seems to be the only thing that gets the NFL to act on anything. #2: Clark plays a far more vital position that is signficantly more difficult to address. So for the billionth time, when teams say they care about character it was, is, and will always be total <censored>. Btw, I've come to really not be concerned w/it anymore. Once Kirby Puckett got outed as a flat out monster, and Eugene Robinson fumbled away his man of the year award while getting arrested the night before the super bowl he was set to start in it really put the lie to the character talk for once and for all. We don't know these guys, we never will. You never have any clear idea who is a bad actor and who is not, arrests or not. The only thing I know for sure is that the league and your favorite team are ALWAYS lying when they talk about character. They only care about it when it effects them w/bad publicity AND w/their bottom line win total. otherwise they couldn't give less of a <censored>.
  3. They're not vastly inferior. Carolina is a good team that played well late. I'm proud of the Caps no matter what happens.
  4. The problem with telling members of the administration to do things that are illegal and they do not do them is there is no law broken.....not doing illegal things when ordered and pointing out the illegality is part of their job. Even when you tell them and they do them (such as DAPA) there is some deferential treatment given to the Executive despite the court ruling it against the laws..

    I wouldn't take a slot specialist like AJ Brown or a tiny flanker/slot guy like Marquise Brown over bonafide X receivers like Metcalf, Butler, or Harry. It is so much harder to find a legit X than the other positions. In a year with three of them in the first to early second round range, you can't justify taking lesser guys at the more replaceable positions. I'm also not against trading up for Haskins. We need a quarterback. We can't do anything until we have one, and Haskins is as a legit prospect who might only be obtainable because a bunch of other teams just drafted QBs and the other bad teams seem to be acting really stupid about the position this offseason. Similar deal to 2017 in that way. When a top of the draft QB prospect falls, you freaking strike while the iron is hot. You don't wait until next year. Good Lord, that is not encouraging. Does it say what his 40 time was? He's got excellent size for an End, but when you're not explosive and you can't bend and you're not super powerful/physical, you don't have much of a foundation to win with. I think he added a bunch of garbage weight to bulk up this past season, and it's made it so he can't run any more.

    Starting QB 2019???

    I think the big concern is that from the article it makes it seem as though his Dad wants to control aspects of his career and that did not work well with a certain first round QB in Washington a few years ago and it was also an issue for the Giants with Eli Apple and his mom. I am honestly cool on all of these prospects and would rather fill other spots on the roster but if we go QB I at least hope we get one by staying out or trading back, if we move up for these guys I am going to start throwing stuff.

    Going to copy/paste his section on Jaylon Ferguson. It's not pretty. https://thedraftnetwork.com/articles/where-i-differ-from-the-consensus That's a really bad sign. He's stiff on film, his measurables are atrocious. That's a UDFA quality pro-day. You can't do anything with him, he's the opposite of versatile. Once he's on the field, every OL in front of him knows he's doing one thing and that's it.

    He has also worked on every GOP campaign and pre-transition team for the last ten years (his words). But what does he know. That said..he wants Pence to take over. As if the Christian Taliban isn't responsible for this mess.

    The problem with the comp is that it's not a reasonable comp. Jackson was killing defenses as a fresh out of high school 18 year old kid catching balls thrown by a total dog bleep QB in 2005. Brown's production is age 20/21. Hill actually has the worst track record of the three, never breaking out, despite playing against garbage defenses. One gets the sense he just wasn't used properly in college (plus he was a complete and utter scumbag so maybe he was suspended a ton, he was actually guilty of much worse transgressions in college than Hunt has been as a pro). But yeah, if you got DeSean Jackson production by drafting Brown, and say an injury history no worse than Jacksons? Absolutely that's worth the top 15 pick. And Tyreek Hill? That woudl be worth a top 5 pick (especially if he has none of the character flags).

    Was not impressed with what I saw of Jaylon Ferguson. Big, versatile, pretty good playing the run. But not overly physical despite his size, and not very explosive. Reminded me of Preston Smith a little, but he doesn't look as fast to me. He runs really high, I don't think he bends very well. He played standing up, but he doesn't have hip fluidity--a lot of gathering going on when he's not attacking downhill through his gap. I don't see him as a natural fit at OLB for 3-4 teams. I think he's a mid round guy. Third or early fourth is where I would predict him to go. Agreed. My gut prediction the past few months has been that Murray will go #1, Allen will go #2, and Haskins goes #3.

    B. Granted I don't want him period, but I have to disagree here. He's a consensus 1st rounder. He's being invited to the green room. Basically that means that the NFL has been informed that it's quite likely he's picked off the board at some point between 1 and 32. Can we trade down and still get him? Maybe. But he could also go before our pick, or soon after. If you want him, you probably can't trade down very far. I do not want him, so I wouldn't worry about any of this. Despite that though, he's a risk to go off the board at any time. I get the sense that he may not be #1 on every team's board, but he is either 1 or 2 on virtually every teams board. As such, he's going to go either before us, to us, or after us. Trade down at your own risk. Last point: He's got the lisfranc, and he'd basically be the smallest successful WR ever in the modern history of the NFL. If you go back far enough, you probably find other little guys like Anthony Carter, but that's going back 3 decades and most analytics groups are looking essentially at the NFL over the past 15-25 or so years, basically depending upon the group, they're usually focused on the post-Plan B era, or the Post-rules changing Indy whining to the league about the Patriots era (where they tightened the heck out of rules governing what can be done to WR's and QB's etc). There are guys that I'm scared bleepless will bust, and wouldn't take period, D.K. Metcalf scares me that way (he could be a megastar, but he also could lack the study habits to learn how to run a varied route tree and develop his game), guys like Hakeem Butler (Didn't do a damn thing until the end of his career at Iowa State, that's a red flag that concerns me as much as Brown's size. Whatever one may say about Brown, he produced. The second he arrived in Oklahoma he was straight up murdering secondaries left and right. I don't know what his market share #'s were at college of the canyons, and because of the defenses, said stats are tossable, but after arriving at College of the Canyons looking like a sixth grader, he posted a line good enough to place him 13th amongst all JUCO transfer prospects in the '17 transfer class (50-700something-10 TD's, I posted it earlier today). Hakeem Butler had no NFL caliber competition at Iowa State, and he played in the Big-12, which produced gobs of crazy pass catching, and throwing stats, and he still didn't do squat until his final year. That's like 100 red flags. I would not be surprised if Brown is hugely productive when he's on the field, I'm just sincerely worried about how often he'll be on the field, plus he comes in with an injury red flag. So I'd pass unless he was there in the mid to late 2nd (and he won't be). Again, have no problem envisioning a John Brown like career for him, minus the Sickle Cell trait issues (am assuming he doesn't have that issue), but the lisfranc and the size concerns have me 1000% against it.

    His dad seems incredibly protective. There are worse things. And certainly Haskins comes off as having a good head on his shoulders when interviewed. The microscope these players are under gets more insane every year. Man, when I think about myself at 22? Now add millions of dollars, fame, social media, etc... I would have flamed out quick.

    I seriously doubt the first QB doesn't come off the board until #3 though. That would be surprising.
