    So ... let’s hypothetically say that Haskins didn’t come out as a Redshirt Sophomore. Yes, let’s not forget he would be a Redshirt Junior entering this draft. For context, Joe Burrow is a R-Sr. So the equivalent for Haskins is he’d be in Columbus preparing for his final year this fall. What if this past season Haskins went back to gain more experience. Let’s say he repeated. Had 48 TDs and 6 ints as a junior after he put up 50/8 as a sophomore. Do you think he wouldn’t be in the discussion with Tua and Herbert right now? It would not shock me if there was a debate about Burrow Tua Haskins Herbert all being Top 5 picks. It’s just silly to me to sit here and listen to people want to move on from Haskins already when it was very clear he was going to need time to sit and grow as a pro. He got forced into early action and came around by the end and showed serious improvement. He seems to me to have the it factor. I have no doubt had he gone back to OSU he would have had a huge year and be talked up in the same ballpark as Tua and Burrow in this draft. So yes, since we already have our QB, i think it’s a bit silly to move on from him and pass on an elite edge defender as a result. Haskins beat out Burrow at OSU and entered the league as a 20 year old. Burrow is 23. Haskins has 2 more years before he catches Burrow in age. If supported and properly developed don’t you think he has just as much potential?

    Thanks for the advice, but this isn't a hobby. It's my job. I'm a physician with expertise in novel disease discovery and novel drug development. I've been a part of multiple meetings recently as our hospital prepares to deal with this virus. I'm sure your expertise is super valuable though. I don't know what the future of this virus is, and neither do you. I know that it has greater potential to develop into a worldwide pandemic with countless lives affected than any other virus we've seen emerge since HIV. That doesn't mean it will, and I pray it won't, but to suggest we shouldn't prepare and act aggressively to contain it is just plain stupid and irresponsible.

    Here's my dream scenario. I think it could happen. But in a perfect world it's a 3-team trade with Detroit and Miami. In this scenario it involves risk (in terms of losing Chase) for Washington. Miami calls Washington and offers 5, 18, 39 and a 5th. We accept. Washington immediately calls Detroit and says 5 and 18 are yours if we can come up and get 3 again. Detroit accepts. 1.3. Chase Young, Edge. Ohio State Second round pick comes up, we say there's a lot of guys we like here, and this is playing with house money, let's trade down. Rams offer 2.20 and 3.20 to move up to 2.7. Washington accepts. 2.20: Damon Arnette, CB Ohio State 3.2: Malik Jefferson, LB Ohio State 3.20: Saahdiq Charles, OT LSU 4.2: KJ Hill, WR Ohio State 4.38: Albert Okwuegbunam, TE Mizzou 5.2: Tyler Johnson, WR Minnesota 5.17: Anthony McFarland, RB Maryland Why would Detroit do this deal? Well they need a CB, DE, DT, LB ...you name it they need it. At #3 they can have Chase. But at #5 they can have Derrick Brown, Jeff Okudah or Isaiah Simmons AND add #18, where they could address one of those positions pretty hard (Fulton, Queen, Murray, Epenesa, Chaisson). I don't know. Just spitballing. But I would think Detroit would accept 5+18 today from Miami for #3. Would it be enough for them to pass on Chase? Because they could get impact players at other positions of need at 5, I could see them doing it.

    Clowney is pretty good but overall I think he disappointed when compared to his hype, but there were some questions about him coming out regarding his character and desire as to whether he'd have what it took to work hard to maximize his natural talent. He also had some questions about his flexibility/stiffness and repertoire of pass rush moves (or lack thereof...he basically had a bull rush and a swim move but wasn't all that impressive at bending the edge). So IMO it isn't especially shocking that he didn't live up to the hype. But I'm not sure where you coming from with the Garrett thing, though. Garrett is legit. IMO he was definitely a better prospect coming out than Clowney. More flexible and could bend nicely, more pass rush moves, more explosive. Though there were questions about his effort. His first year with the Browns wasn't amazing, but it wasn't "bad" with 7 sacks. But his second year he had 13.5 and was 2nd team All-Pro. And in this last season if he hadn't played the fool and started hitting people with helmets he was on pace for 16+ sacks and a likely 1st team All-Pro nod.

    National Football League Feb 20, 2020 NFL STATEMENT Following more than ten months of intensive and thorough negotiations, the NFL Players and clubs have jointly developed a comprehensive set of new and revised terms that will transform the future of the game, provide for players – past, present, and future – both on and off the field, and ensure that the NFL's second century is even better and more exciting for the fans. The membership voted today to accept the negotiated terms on the principal elements of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. The Players Association would also need to vote to approve the same terms for there to be a new agreement. Since the clubs and players need to have a system in place and know the rules that they will operate under by next week, the membership also approved moving forward under the final year of the 2011 CBA if the players decide not to approve the negotiated terms. Out of respect for the process and our partners at the NFLPA, we will have no further comment at this time.

    DeShaun Watson slipped because of injury, he tore his acl, broke his collarbone, had another knee injury, and then tore his other acl as a rookie. There were also questions about arm strength and ability to read the intermediate game.

    I like pete id prefer everyone but him and whoever is 3rd in delegates after SC drop out. I want to see if sanders wins that tight of a race. If he trumps his way into the nomination it makes it that much harder to go with Not claiming that’s a rational position just where I am at the moment.

    Most years, the annual flu has a lethality rate of 0.2-0.5%. That is not trivial, and tens of thousands die every year. If this new virus has comparable infectivity as the flu and a lethality of 2-3% (as early data suggests), that would mean hundreds of thousands of Americans dead every year. This is of course early data, but that potential is something to take very, very seriously. It appears to have the potential to kill considerably more than an an average flu season.

    I wish they'd either lengthen the response time or allow more natural back and forth. The moderators are really annoying tonight

    True. And that's when we tried to get cute. Instead of taking the stud player we picked up the good but not great one, then added a 2nd which we then kept trading down. And eventually ended up with the powerhouse draft haul of Hankerson, Helu, Gomes, Paul, Royster, etc etc. Because we had lots of holes! Gotta fill them holes! Forget taking the blue chip player. Fill them holes! Then again, while Watt was considered a really good prospect he wasn't seen at the time as the sort of generational guy that we know he is now (Marcell Dareus was the first DL taken in that draft...who's good but he's no JJ Watt), so in that he's a bit different than Chase Young. But the point is still valid.

    I prefer to live in the realm of realism. Otherwise why not create threads asking if we can trade a 4th rounder in 2022 for Pat Mahomes? Come on man.
