    Taz didn't become a bandwagon Rams fan because they got good; it's because the Chargers are releasing a 70 year old tight end!

    I don't think he left on good terms. And he didn't fit their system. DeMarco Murray would be a good fit. He can catch the ball and PFF rated him at the best pass protecting running back in the NFL last year.

    Because Mayfield is too short to reach their floor? That’s what she said!

    Ward might be 5'-11", but he runs a 4.32 40. He didn't do a 3-cone, but he looked plenty quick in games. At 5'-10", Brown is not big, he's quick. Out of all the corners in this draft, Ward is quite possibly the best suited to try to cover Brown.

    On the radio this morning someone explained it perfectly No matter who Cleveland picked at 1 there was going to be something and a group of people were going to absolutely hate the pick. It has nothing to do with any of the QBs, it has everything to do with getting it wrong for 20 years. I commend the FO for going after the guy they wanted at 1 and listening to Mayfield's conference call and the press conference yesterday the pick is growing on me. If Mayfield was 1 or 2 inches taller, and didn't try to run from the cops no one is talking today. His QBASE ratings are off the charts https://www.footballoutsiders.com/stat-analysis/2018/qbase-2018 In depth write up of QBASE in 2015 https://www.footballoutsiders.com/stat-analysis/2015/introducing-qbase And a little more advanced analytics https://www.si.com/nfl/2018/03/22/baker-mayfield-advance-analytics-nfl-draft-oklahoma-pff

    The fact alone that Mary Kay, Terry Pluto and company have hated this draft so far make me feel more comfortable with it. How many times over the 20 years has Cleveland "killed the offseason" and "did everything right" just to consistently fail in the regular season.' The Mayfield pick will grow on me but the Manziel comps are a joke. The Ward pick I love becaue Cleveland has a bunch of CB2 and CB3s. The line couldn't get pressure on QBs last year once teams figured out quick passes exposed the secondary. Ward is a lock down corner and hopefully now Peppers can go back to the hybrid safety he was at Michigan. Williams, Hurst, and Hubbert are still out there and the thought of picking Josh Jackson is even growing on me a little as well.

    I’ve heard from quite a few really strong sources that had Mayfield #1 by quite a distance so I’m not at all bothered by him at 1. I think Browns fans shouldn’t be so distressed by that pick. I am puzzled by Ward at 4 over Chubb though. That said, it’s not like Ward wouldn’t have gone a pick or two later. Not sure why they didn’t trade down that pick if they really wanted Ward.

    Texted my dad right after the Ward pick. 'I've been dealing with this manure since i was in 10 years old.' Ward pick was good, but would have preferred Chubb. Mayfield could turn out to be the best QB in this draft, still would have preferred the safety of Darnold.

    Already discussed a bit in the GBP backfield thread, but I think Ty Montgomery at #158 could be a huge value in PPR leagues.

    Tweak the filter a little to "Exclude Mock Drafts" and I also chose "Starting After May 1" and it seems to be much more normal - Barkley is top rookie with ADP of 1.13 and Guice is #2 with ADP of 3.15. Next 4 guys ADP are all between 5.7 and 7.3 which shows just how much of a jumble it is right now with no clear cut 3rd guy, etc. With the default setting, even though it says rookie only drafts, the max picks are out of whack - Barkley has a max pick of 721 and most of the others have max picks in the mid 300s. Not necessarily anything wrong in their data, as not everyone uses the draft the same way or takes the time to properly setup their draft/league so that it can be filtered, etc. for these things.

    He weighed in at 202 at the combine and probably chugged a bunch of water to get that weight. His playing weight is probably 190-195. He bounces off of defenders like a ping pong. Very few running backs of that size get heavy workloads. Sanders, Barber, and McCoy are exceptions. Tomlinson weighed 221 at the combine.

    Glad the Colts didn't make a move: we're just overflowing with RB studs.

    DeMarco would have to accept being on the bench once Ingram comes back. Adrian Peterson wasn't accepting of a minimal role last year. DeMarco might not be at the point where he'd accept it either. But really, the Saints don't need to sign any one. It's only the first 4 games of the season. Kamara can get 70% of snaps and they can get their backups a little experience. Zeke, David Johnson, Le'Veon, and Gurley have no backups and no one is worried. The Saints have a stud and another stud who will be back game 5.

    Just to build on what DMD said...strategically it’s harder to draft a WR, because they are both harder to predict in terms of likely success AND they are also likely to need space on your taxi squad for longer than an RB. For an early first round pick, i would need to feel like a WR was an AJ Green / Julio Jones kind of blue chip. It seems easier to grab as much draft success as you can and then trade that into positional need.

    Yes, it was a wrong thing to change - your long thread on the other FF site where the vote clearly went with the "it was wrong" side should be enough.

    McCaffery was never going to be a bell-cow, 3-down back. He's not built for that roile. CJ may actuaklly prove to be a nice compliment, nbut I do not expect McCaffery's production to be any less than if they kept Stewart on board. We all knew that they had to add something to that backfield. It had no depth worth a piss until now. McAffery owners need to calm down. He's still the man and will be a good fantasy producer in PPR leagues;

    Do the Colts even have a primary RB, with Gore gone its a lot of average guys left, and 2 rookie RBs drafted in rounds 4/5. Jones, Mack, Turbin. Maybe CMike gets his shot, or a rookie?

    if true, why wouldn't Witten and DAL keep it a secret until DAL could draft a TE or two?

    didn't most of you say that if CLE had a clear #1 QB that they should have the balls to pull the trigger and not wait for whomever to fall to them at #4? I'm going to guess that they didn't have a trade partner at #4. BUF clearly didn't want to give up two 1sts, so they waited. BUF is a big winner with their patience.

    Very surprised. Not unhappy, necessarily...but RB was not on my radar. For the 4 picks in the firat 2 rounds I wanted to see OL, TE, LB, QB, in some order.

    Not really bitter, just tired of all the "Browns are stupid and don't know how to draft" nonsense from people who don't realize there is a new GM, one with a good track record. Or maybe you believe in some curse on the Browns or something. But what really gets me is your views on the draft as it pertained to this discussion, apparently they are not grounded in sound analysis but some disdain you have for the potential of Barkley being a Giant. Your "Hyde is more a COP or 3rd down back to me" and "he's never had 1000 yards" is pretty far off the mark. His rookie year they still had Gore, his second year he played half a year, had 115 carries for 470 yards, his next 2 years he had 217-988 (in 13 games) and 240-938, so while not 1000 yard, pretty close and far from a COP or 3rd down back. But its easier to dismiss me as bitter, than admit you were talking out your rear.

    The people in charge this year are far smarter than those that were making decisions in years past. I don't know if they're taking Barkley though. Would they have traded for Hyde knowing they had the 1st overall and that Barkley was likely the best player in this draft? Why spend money on Hyde if they knew they'd be taking Barkley?

    Really? There is a difference between what should happen and what will. Mayfield is a proven winner and the most pro-ready guy in the draft. There are enough QB needy teams that someone will look beyond his height.

    Who was slated to be starting QB in WAS when they made that move? Did they have somebody, or was it almost certain to be the top rookie? Browns have Tyrod Taylor, not great but good enough for now. My concern, no matter which QB they take that guy flops, for a mutlitude of reasons including lack of good talent around them, good coaching, or just shear dumb luck. But we won't know for a year, since whoever they draft is set to sit and learn, and not play. If they end up playing them early they're going to look foolish after saying they won't play in year one. PS :Dorsey also said he was considering offers for the #1 pick, does that mean it will happen?

    I know who she is and wasn't trying to imply what she said is the gospel. As someone who holds the 1.01 in a dynasty league, I hope the Giants take Barkley at 2. Duke Johnson is an underrated back who is extremely adept at the "pass catching back" role, and think Hyde will be solid as their "starter".
  46. 1 point
    From what I have seen the #1 going for in dynasties, I don't think you are even in the ball park with that offer and run the risk of him just ignoring you from here on out. You are offering up a bunch of scraps for what many consider to be the best lock in many years as a dynasty #1 pick.

    Since no other team has selected, the Browns rush to the podium with the draft card and take Bradley Chubb, DE NC State
