    I do think the Warrior dynasty will end after this year though. Durant will leave, Green is breaking down and remember Curry is 31 with a history of bad ankles too.
  6. I will legitimately cry when Ovie hangs it up.
  7. With a personal retirement account there is clearly an amount saved and how long that will last based on a rate of consumption. Social security is not supposed to work like that.
  8. That’s why I live in the east coast... i think peopl don’t know it because it’s not super important. Now you type where you want to go and your uber takes you there, or you follow blue lines...
  9. That little juke and the absolutely deadly shot. The man is amazing.
  10. Outlive/outspend there is no difference mathematically

    We survived their brief momentum swing
  12. Carolina crowd is stupid. Williams cleans his goalie out and they boo and start a “ref you suck” chant. Hags didn’t touch either Williams or Mrazek.

    Cane fans are angry at the Caps for their player killing their goalie?
  14. Mrazek out of the crease for like 4 years and nobody to clean up a rebound.
  15. You mean that the poor outlive the amount they pay in. Eliminating Medicare is a simple solution to take care of the problem so that they live shorter lives.

    DJs list is strong, imo. Hilariously enough, 2 of those guts weren’t picked in the ES mock. I like Ugo, but Boyd has certain issues that outweigh the talent.. though the talent is substantial. Garden gnome.

    Is it just me or does Hock look like a hobbit?
  21. That was an ATROCIOUS call. And slash on stick ignored...
  22. ESPN actually did the Stanley Cup finals in 1998 Capitals vs. Red Wings
  23. The upper upper class is pretty small, they aren’t the issue. The issue is that poor people need it more than they pay into it.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    DJ just did his final 100, here is the first 18. If I recall among the mock draft media guys he is one of the only ones who was a scout. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001027342/article/daniel-jeremiahs-top-100-prospects-for-2019-nfl-draft RANK 1 Nick Bosa, Edge School: Ohio State | Year: Junior Previous rank: 1 Bosa has an ideal frame for a 4-3 DE, and he is consistently disruptive in every game I've studied. As a pass rusher, he can win with quickness, power and a variety of hand moves. He often incorporates the same swipe/rip/flatten move that his brother, Joey, has mastered. Nick can convert speed to power, and he also flashes some ability to slide inside and rush over the guard. He is stout at the point of attack against the run, and he's quick to locate and pursue the football. There are some durability concerns after he underwent season-ending core-muscle surgery this past fall. Bosa isn't as big as his older brother, but I expect similar dominance and production at the NFL level. RANK 2 Quinnen Williams, DT School: Alabama | Year: Sophomore (RS) Previous rank: 2 Williams has good size for the position and possesses a rare combination of suddenness, strength and football intelligence. He moved up and down the line of scrimmage in Alabama's defense and was effective at every spot. As a pass rusher, he explodes off the ball, maintains leverage and pushes his opponent into the lap of the quarterback. He also uses a violent club/swim move. Williams is constantly double-teamed, but he still finds a way to generate pressures and sacks. Against the run, he plays with a low pad level, locks his hands inside and violently sheds blocks to pursue the ball carrier. Overall, this is a dominant player who's capable of emerging as a premier interior defensive lineman very early in his NFL career. RANK 3 Josh Allen, Edge School: Kentucky | Year: Senior Previous rank: 3 Allen is a tall, long edge player with tremendous agility, versatility and production. As a pass rusher, he wins with speed, bend and a nifty inside counter move. He doesn't possess a lot of power, but he makes up for it with his Gumby-like flexibility at the top of his rush. Against the run, he uses his length to set the edge, and he's a blur closing from the back side. Allen is a huge asset in coverage, providing the athletic ability to mirror backs and tight ends all over the field. Overall, the Kentucky product possesses an ideal skill set for today's game: He can run, rush and cover. RANK 4 T.J. Hockenson, TE School: Iowa | Year: Sophomore (RS) Previous rank: 5 Hockenson is a fun player to watch. In the passing game, he fights through press coverage and will stair-step defenders (fights through pass coverage and understands how to attack the leverage of defenders) down the field, helping to create some separation on crossers and deep-over routes. He tracks the ball naturally, and his high-point skills are on display in the red zone. He is very physical after the catch and possesses adequate speed. Hockenson is at his best in the run game. He rag-dolls defensive ends and linebackers. He had multiple pancake blocks in every game I studied. Overall, Hockenson is one of the best blocking tight ends I've ever evaluated, and he is dependable in the passing game. He's a Day 1 impact player at the next level. RANK 5 Ed Oliver, DT School: Houston | Year: Junior Previous rank: 4 Oliver is an undersized interior lineman with exceptional twitch and pass-rush potential. He primarily lined up over the center, but he did move around a bit in Houston's defense. Against the pass, he has an explosive first step and outstanding change-of-direction quickness. He is quick to shoot his hands, but he needs to develop a better game plan once engaged. Oliver was constantly slanting in Houston's defensive scheme, and that led to quick wins versus both the run and pass. His lack of size and length does show up in the run game -- he gets swallowed up at times. His effort is excellent, despite facing constant double-teams. Overall, Oliver isn't as powerful or polished as the Rams' Aaron Donald was entering the NFL, but he has similar athleticism and should be a disruptive force for the team that drafts him. RANK 6 Devin White, LB School: LSU | Year: Junior Previous rank: 6 White has a thick, sturdy frame and possesses prototypical explosiveness and playmaking skills. Against the pass, he has the speed and agility to cover TEs down the field, and he closes space in a hurry when he's in zone coverage. He has timing and burst as a blitzer. He wins the majority of his 1-on-1s versus running backs in pass protection. Against the run, White brings sideline-to-sideline range, but he will get stuck on blocks once engaged. He has good (but not great) instincts to key/read. However, even when he's a half count late, he makes up for it with his play speed. He is an outstanding, chest-up tackler. Overall, White has what teams are looking for at the position: The ability to run, cover and blitz. RANK 7 Christian Wilkins, DT School: Clemson | Year: Senior Previous rank: 7 Wilkins has solid size (6-foot-3, 315 pounds) for the position, and he's been a disruptive presence along the Clemson line throughout his career. Against the pass, he has quick feet and hands, which allow him to routinely win early in the down. He's at his best when slanting and working through the edges of blockers. He isn't a powerful bull rusher. Against the run, he is much better on the back side. He relies on quickness to slip blocks and does a good job of avoiding cut blocks. On the front side, he'll occasionally get too high -- and consequently get turned and dumped. Overall, Wilkins has upside as a pass rusher and penetrator, but you'll have to live with some deficiencies at the point of attack. RANK 8 Josh Jacobs, RB School: Alabama | Year: Junior Previous rank: 8 Jacobs is one of my favorite players to study in this draft class. He has a thick, compact build, and I love his combination of power, elusiveness and versatility. In the run game, he possesses excellent vision, burst and wiggle. His change-of-direction quickness is off the charts. He runs low to the ground and powers through tacklers in every game I studied. Jacobs has the speed to get to the perimeter -- he's a weapon when lined up as a QB in the Wildcat and when he's used on fly sweeps from the slot. In the passing game, Jacobs runs crisp routes and possesses natural hands; he's a make-you-miss specialist in space. He does need to improve in pass protection. He must come to balance as a blocker and avoid lunging at blitzers. Overall, Jacobs is a special talent, and his light workload at Alabama (251 carries in three seasons) should be viewed as a positive, not a negative. RANK 9 Devin Bush, LB School: Michigan | Year: Junior Previous rank: 9 Bush is a little undersized for the position (5-11, 234 pounds), but he makes up for it with instincts, twitch and production. He's excellent as a zone dropper against the pass -- quick to key routes and get a jump on the ball. In man coverage, he has the speed to run with tight ends and running backs, but he gets a little too grabby down the field. He is an excellent blitzer, using a dip/rip move to defeat running backs. Bush really excels in the run game. He is quick to identify, fill and chest up runners. He is also capable of shocking and shedding guards when they work up to the second level. He has a high batting average as a tackler and provides some huge hits. Overall, Bush is a three-down linebacker, and he'll provide the team that drafts him with a physical presence. RANK 10 Rashan Gary, Edge School: Michigan | Year: Junior Previous rank: 10 Gary is a freak. He has a unique blend of size, speed, explosiveness and power. Unfortunately, it doesn't always translate to production. As a pass rusher, he has a dynamic get-off and flashes the power to bull through OTs with only one arm extended. However, he lacks complementary moves and stalls at the top of his rush far too often. Against the run, he destroys TEs on the edge with pure strength and power. However, he will bury his head and fail to locate the football at times. His athleticism is on display in coverage, where I've seen him run and mirror slot receivers. There are some concerns about his durability after he missed time with injuries. Overall, Gary is more of an athlete than football player at this time, but the upside is off the charts, and his effort is exceptional. RANK 11 Kyler Murray, QB School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior (RS) Previous rank: 11 Murray is an extremely explosive quarterback prospect who lacks the ideal height/bulk for the position. He has extremely quick feet in his setup and bounces on his toes at the top of his drop. He has dynamic arm strength and doesn't need to grind his toes in the ground to generate power. He isn't as accurate as Baker Mayfield, but he flashes the touch to layer the ball on occasion, accompanying the "wow" power throws. The majority of his decisions are made pre-snap; otherwise, he resorts to scrambling around and buying time. There are examples of him working deeper into progressions, but that will still be an adjustment for him at the next level. He is an electric runner, using a quick/choppy stride to eat up ground. I had two major issues early in the evaluation process, but his full-time commitment to football and surprising bulk at the combine (207 pounds) helped alleviate those concerns. Overall, I see Murray as a solid starting NFL quarterback. RANK 12 Andre Dillard, OT School: Washington State | Year: Senior (RS) Previous rank: 13 Dillard has an athletic frame for the position, and he's a very easy mover. In pass protection, he explodes out of his stance and plays with tremendous knee bend, patience and balance. He shoots his hands in tight and can redirect with very little effort. When opponents get into his chest, he is quick to re-work his hands and regain leverage. In the run game, he is more of a finesse, wall-off player than a people-mover. He has the athleticism to work up to the second level, and I believe he'll be effective on outside pulls. Overall, Dillard is a pure, pass-protecting left tackle. Yes, he needs to get stronger and more physical, but in a passing league, what he does best is highly coveted. RANK 13 Noah Fant, TE School: Iowa | Year: Junior Previous rank: 15 Fant has a tall, athletic frame (6-4, 249 pounds) and exceptional explosiveness. He moved around in the Iowa scheme, putting his hand in the dirt, splitting out wide or aligning in the wing. He explodes off the line of scrimmage and is a very fluid route runner. He creates a lot of separation and tracks the ball easily over his shoulder. Fant isn't as effective when he's working underneath. He lacks polish and drops some easy balls. He also has a bad habit of unnecessarily jumping for balls that are put on his frame. After the catch, he uses his speed to pull away from defenders. He is a shield blocker in the run game, lacking tenacity and physicality in that department. Overall, Fant is a special athlete who is at his best working vertically. He has some shortcomings in other areas, but he'll be a big-play producer right away for his drafting team. RANK 14 Jawaan Taylor, OT School: Florida | Year: Junior Previous rank: 14 Taylor lined up at right tackle for the Gators. He has average height and a broad frame for the position. In the passing game, he has the foot quickness to cover up speed rushers and the athleticism to redirect versus counter moves. He has a bad habit of scooping instead of punching, which allows defenders to get into his chest. However, he is still sturdy versus power rushers, despite giving up his chest. In the run game, he has tremendous upper-body strength to torque and toss defenders. He's nasty. Some teams will prefer his power inside at the guard position, but I see him as a quality starting right tackle. RANK 15 Jeffery Simmons, DT School: Mississippi State | Year: Junior Previous rank: 17 Simmons has the ideal frame, athleticism and explosiveness for the position. As a pass rusher, he has an exceptional first step and rolls his hips to uproot blockers. Simmons has tremendous upper torque to stack and toss blockers on the way to the quarterback. He excels on twists and games. Against the run, he explodes into blocks, extends his arms, peeks and frees himself to make plays. However, teams will need to do their homework on his character -- his 2016 arrest stemmed from a highly publicized video of him getting into a physical altercation with a woman. Overall, Simmons has Pro Bowl potential and a similar skill set to Eagles DT Fletcher Cox. The ACL tear he suffered during a workout in February might hurt him a little bit in the draft, but he's too talented a player to fall very far. RANK 16 Marquise Brown, WR School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior Previous rank: 16 Brown is a DeSean Jackson clone. He has a similar build and the same explosive playmaking skills as the three-time Pro Bowler. He lines up outside and in the slot. He easily defeats press coverage with his quickness -- and when corners elect to play off coverage, he eats up their cushion in a hurry. He is a blur on deep posts and go routes, showing both suddenness off the line and another gear once the ball is thrown to him. He has also shown the ability to quickly get in/out of breaks when working back to the quarterback on curls and comebacks. He plays much bigger than his size (5-9, 166 pounds) down the field, attacking the football at the highest point. He is dynamic after the catch. Overall, Brown might lack ideal size, but he's a polished receiver and a threat to score from anywhere on the field. He did undergo Lisfranc surgery in January, which means he's probably not a lock for the top 20. I don't see him falling out of the first round, though. RANK 17 Montez Sweat, Edge School: Mississippi State | Year: Senior Previous rank: 12 Sweat is a tall, long and athletic defensive end. As a pass rusher, he relies on a quick get-off and his length to pop/separate before bending around the edge to generate sacks. He doesn't show much snap/power on contact, but he still finds ways to win. His effort is excellent. Against the run, he plays a little high and will get moved around by opposing tackles. He will improve once he learns to lower his pads. Sweat is much better versus tight ends. He has the agility to drop into the flat in coverage. Sweat needs to get stronger, but his combination of length, agility and production makes him one of the draft's top edge rushers. However, off-field factors, including his dismissal from Michigan State and a heart condition, have the potential to keep him from going as high as his talent warrants. RANK 18 Garrett Bradbury, C School: N.C. State | Year: Senior (RS) Previous rank: 18 Bradbury is a slightly undersized player with excellent quickness, balance and awareness. He is a very clean player, rarely falling off blocks or getting caught out of position. In pass protection, he has quick hands and can easily slide mirror while displaying excellent knee bend. He will stutter back a little bit versus power rushers before settling down. He is very aware. In the run game, he uses his quickness to consistently reach and cut off defenders. He takes good angles up to the second level, and he can adjust in space. He isn't a mauler, but he stays attached to his assignment. Overall, Bradbury will be a steady, reliable starter, and I see very minimal risk.
