    When September concludes, Sewell will still be a teenager.

    2021 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    BRANDON AIYUKWR, SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS Speaking to NBC Sports' Peter King, 49ers GM John Lynch stated WR Brandon Aiyuk and WR CeeDee Lamb's grades were “very evenly matched” ahead of the 2020 NFL Draft. The 49ers passed on the chance to draft Lamb at No. 14 overall, and instead traded up from pick No. 31 to No. 25 to secure Aiyuk on their roster. Lynch outlined a conversation he had with head coach Kyle Shanahan two days before the draft, claiming it might "raise eyebrows," but he would be "perfectly happy" to select Aiyuk at their original draft slot at No. 13. Shanahan agreed. From a stylistic standpoint, it makes total sense as the 49ers roster George Kittle, Deebo Samuel and Tevin Coleman, all top two at their position in average yards after the catch. Aiyuk averaged the sixth-most yards after the catch in college football last season. And in an added wrinkle, Aiyuk's former coach, Herm Edwards, is the godparent to one of Lynch's children. Surely that relationship and seamless line of communication paid off while completing background work. Ultimately, Aiyuk and Lamb will always be linked in the eyes of 49ers fans.

    2021 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    PENEI SEWELLT, OREGON DUCKS Oregon HC Mario Cristobal said that junior T Penei Sewell's power is like "nothing [he's] ever seen before." Cristobal was a guest on Yahoo Sports' draft show last Thursday and did not hold back on his high esteem for Sewell as a prospect, saying that, the 6-foot-6, 330-pound star possesses "the most explosive power that [he has] ever seen as an offensive line coach or a head coach." And if anybody knows what he's talking about with offensive line evaluations, it's Cristobal, who worked previously as an OL coach at Miami, Alabama and Oregon (prior to taking over as head coach with the Ducks in 2018). Cristobal also said that he believes that Sewell "could play comfortably" at 375 pounds. Yowza. Sewell will enter the 2020 season with top-3 draft potential for next April should he declare over the winter. SOURCE: Yahoo Sports Apr 30, 2020, 2:58 PM ET

    The "I wish we got that guy" thread, 2020 Edition

    Over Ismael & Hudson I’d have taken Weaver & Muti. Muti went with the pick we gave Denver in the Keenum trade. In the 7th I’d probably move up and grab Markus Bailey. Chase Young Josh Jones Ben Bartch AGG/Tyler Johnson Curtis Weaver Muti Bailey Sullivan That’s my ideal draft for the DH led Washington Redskins.

    Sarcasm You know slightly less than my last deposit into the commode. No offense. Love Gandy, love Tyler, don’t like our 5th. The rest of the draft was solid, somewhat predictable heading into round 4. Go Tigers.

    Jennings fighting eagles, giants & cowboys would have been tremendous.

    2020 ES GM's Mock Draft....

    You drafted Mahomes & Jackson, I believe, which means Jackson is probably playing WR for your squad? Which means we still have Flacco starting in the league? What a travesty for the game writ large. It’s just difficult to find a balance without guidelines that are being graded, it would be nice to have a specific target we’re shooting at. I prefer the long term grades, maybe we could have a separate contest with a less ambiguous target. Nice drafting, fwiw, that’s incredible to have grabbed both.

    Looks like Dawg Gaither is trying to steal Sewell from Steve & I? *

    2020 ES GM's Mock Draft....

    Pff and nfl.com all rookie teams preferably. Points for team accomplishments, Sb mvp etc, only qbs on great teams can win those, tough to add to overall draft grades. I wouldn’t value the exact spot either or same team... we don’t really have a clear objective here, but I’d suggest it should be to get the players who prove to be best, so I’m a fan of rewarding all pro etc, though obviously that is tougher with teams picking later. To do it fairly, as you did above, we’d need to assign a total value of the draft picks & then a value for the results of those picks, +/-. For udfa, I’d take off maybe a tenth of a point per spot missed, if you had the 2nd to last pick & he didn’t get drafted, you lose .2. I tend to go back and forth between team need, bpa, besting actual draft spots, and just drafting obscure players. Teams with QBs will probably never get to draft an mvp unless we aren’t really drafting for our team as a GM would... its ... but it’s awesome. Your work makes it all that much more interesting to keep up with. * Points for making a 53 man roster are a must in any grading, imo.
