Back (to the) Draft

As I said earlier, I think we need to go pass rusher first, but it looks like the Chubbster, as well as Arden Key, look to be drafted ahead of our 9/10 spot. The Raiders desperately need an inside linebacker so they won’t take a pick from us. The Browns, Giants, and Jets (pending free agency moves) will go Darnold/Rosen/Allen, and the Browns will prolly get Barkley with their 4. That leaves Harold Landry from Penn State as the best pass rusher available. Actually, Key may be available as he has an injury history behind him, so he may fall a la Reuben Foster last year. I’d still take Landry.

Thing is, though, given the needs of the teams ahead of us, Quentin Nelson could still be there, Courtland Sutton could be there, and any number of CBs not named Minkah Fitzpatrick will be there. Guard usually isn’t drafted this high, but it is a big need for us. I would be surprised, but not too surprised to see us draft him. We’ll likely fix the O line in free agency and go for a CB if our pass rusher isn’t there.

Speaking of CB, there’s the Ohio State guy, Denzel Ward, short-time starter, who looks to fly up the board as draft day nears. He’s smallish at 5’10, 195, but he’s a smart, aggressive, and fast, who has long arms and can play press or zone coverage equally well. He’s rarely out of position and has great make-up speed. I wouldn’t be too surprised at this pick either.

What say you?

    I will leave all the draft stuff to NJ, You, and Berger, It’s just a little to early for me. But, I do have a feeling that we take care of a lot of needs in FA and draft BPA in the first few rounds. But, then again wtf do I know.

    • Winder says:

      By the time the draft rolls around there are gonna be a bunch of new names moving up anyway. That’s because it is all a crap shoot and the so-called experts continually make mistakes

    Shit you look at ANY draft in the past 25 years and you get past the first 6-8 guys and no one is right. This is from a Cowboys blog from 3 years ago. Apparently Daniel Snyder offered to give a fan $1 million if they could correctly predict the 1st round. No one came close, and even the ‘experts’ sucked.

    Anyway, if you want an idea of how difficult it is to predict the order where all 32 players will be taken in the first round, consider this: Out of 43 mock drafts from last year [2014], no one got more than eight players in the correct spot, according to SB Nation’s Dallas Cowboys site Blogging the Boys.

    I now about Denzel Ward. I was talking about him at work today. We need a CB as bad as anything. Jimmy G handled the offense well with what we had. That allows us to go CB as well. I still want Nelson. If Nelson is gone then a CB is good. Ward has a teammate at Ohio St who plays OG who we could get in rd 2 or 3. His name is Price. Still, he’s no Nelson.

    How about draft #1 WR #2 G free agent Vontae Davis

    Yeah Chuck Dr. Strangelove is where I became of fan of S.P.

    Just sign Jimmy G. and get it done! The draft will take care of itself.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    That’s the plan, Nip.

  9. Berger says:

    We’ve already had a decent draft if you figure Jimmy G was the first 2nd round pick!

  10. Nipper says:

    In conclusion: It’s wait and see time. Wait for the Draft and the signing of Jimmy G. and see if Reuben Foster can stay out of trouble in the off season. BLEEP!

  11. unca_chuck says:

    We have free agency first, Nipper. We can and will do a lot there before we worry about the draft. I’m sure Foster will be fine. The NFL is fairly archaic in their marijuana stance. The union should be a little more in front of this.

  12. Winder says:

    We won’t even know when we draft until between feb,27-mar 5th. I guess it doesn’t make a whole lot of difference but the reality is is that it does. especially if we want to move out of it.
    chuck I was surprised that in Alabama it was only a misdemeanor for possession some of those deep south states had some pretty backward laws.

  13. unca_chuck says:

    I think the amount matters, but they’ve come around a little bit. A little bit.

  14. Nipper says:

    Check out Live PD on A&E the Cops are checking motorists for dope in the southern states such as South Carolina, Florida, Texas etc. And driving under the influence of dope is a no no!

    • Nipper says:

      Getting busted on Live PD that’s when your luck has finally run dry………ouch!

      • Nipper says:

        Failing the D.U.I. test on TV as one wobbles while attempting to walk a straight line in the middle of the night as some cop puts you through the test…….a real bad ouch!

    • Winder says:

      Talk about having a bad day. The problem with legal pot is that when you get pulled over you just might get tested. Pot stays in your system for about 30 days so you might not even remember you did some and still get a DUI.

  15. unca_chuck says:

    If you smoked pot 3 days before getting pulled over, you wouldn’t be exhibiting the effects. Not sure why someone would get tested for pot if they aren’t stoned.
