  1. Last year our last pick was Scooby Wright and everyone felt that was a great flyer but Scooby wasn't nearly as talented as Brantley and was placed on the practice squad and someone took him so we got nothing. A late pick is a flyer but rarely do flyers have Brantley's upside so if he's guilty you cut him but if he is innocent then you gain the upside. A late pick has odds stacked against them making the team but with so many picks the odds are even greater so it makes sense to roll the dice on upside rather than take a stab at a kid with little upside and the same long odds of making the team.
  2. Bloom's take on first round fantasy value, fantasy winners/losers. http://subscribers.footballguys.com/apps/article.php?article=bloom17firstroundwinnerloser&utm_content=bufferf916f&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer FIRST ROUND FANTASY WINNERS AND LOSERS A look at the winners and losers in fantasy football after the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft is in the books. by Sigmund Bloom, April 28
  3. I am neutral with expectations. I like Garrett, I really don't know about Peppers, but love the upside with Ndjuko. Many have questioned the Peppers pick and how he might be used. Here is a schematic with a brief explanation of how the Browns 'might' use Jabrill Peppers. http://d2s3dt9f4iyeup.cloudfront.net/images/standard_v1/b402b71d-8ff0-4720-aa03-1b8c366f87ff.jpg How can the Browns and Gregg Williams utilize Jabrill Peppers? Here's an interior zone blitz scheme from Williams' playbook out of sub-package personnel. Peppers has the ability to drop as an underneath zone defender (N), blitz from a second-level alignment (D) or add to the front as the extra rusher (FS). Williams will put Peppers in a position to produce based on game plan and opponent personnel. Find the matchups. Matt Bowen, ESPN Staff Writer
  4. Young with high SPARQ scores. Arif Hasan‏Verified account @ArifHasanNFL 1h1 hour ago More Arif Hasan Retweeted John Browns got three extremely young players who are in the 89th percentile of SPARQ or better (h/t @zjwhitman) computer machine is humming imo Arif Hasan added, John @NFLDraftFan95 Replying to @_PeteSmith_ So all three of the picks last night from the Browns are under 21.5. Damn ========================================================= EDIT to add: Clean meds too! ======================== Pete Smith‏ @_PeteSmith_ 11h11 hours ago More I could be wrong, but I don't think any of the 3 players the Browns picked have ever had surgery.
  5. Zac Jackson‏ @AkronJackson 7m7 minutes ago More At 29, the Browns select TE David Njoku Brent Sobleski‏ @brentsobleski 11m11 minutes ago More Myles Garrett and Jabrill Peppers are both 21 years old and ranked among top six players at their respective positions in SPARQ. Brent Sobleski‏ @brentsobleski 6m6 minutes ago More To build upon previous tweet: David Njoku is 20 years old and SECOND in SPARQ. Browns desperately needed to get more athletic and explosive Pete Smith‏ @_PeteSmith_ 2m2 minutes ago More Njoku's a freak and may not be done growing. In 2014, he won a national high jump championship clearing 6'11"
  6. Doug Kyed‏Verified account @DougKyed 1m1 minute ago More Browns traded up with the Packers to No. 29 overall. Eric Galko‏Verified account @OptimumScouting 1m1 minute ago More #Packers trade 29 to #Browns for #33 and their 4th (108)
  7. Jabrill Peppers can make an impact in Gregg Williams' defensive scheme. Williams wants versatility at the second-level and in the secondary. Look for Peppers to play safety, dime back, nickel linebacker and drop down to blitz when Cleveland aligns in sub-package personnel. Matt Bowen, ESPN Staff Writer
  8. Matthew Fairburn‏ @MatthewFairburn 12s13 seconds ago More The Cleveland Browns have selected Jabrill Peppers Michigan. Donovan James‏ @DonJamesSports 1m1 minute ago More Peppers to the Browns?! If so I'm obsessed with what CLE is doing on defense #NFLDraft
  9. Matthew Fairburn‏ @MatthewFairburn 32s33 seconds ago More The Oakland Raiders have selected Gareon Conley CB Ohio State. We are up. I have no idea which way we are leaning.
  10. Steve Palazzolo‏Verified account @PFF_Steve 3m3 minutes ago More Charles Harris to Miami
  11. Steve Palazzolo‏Verified account @PFF_Steve 3m3 minutes ago More Malik Hooker to the Colts
  12. We did it. Moved down with the Texans and got their 1st round pick next year. Wow!
  13. Matthew Fairburn‏ @MatthewFairburn 46s46 seconds ago More Marshon Lattimore to the Saints.
  14. I actually like this tweet by MCK. Mary Kay Cabot‏Verified account @MaryKayCabot 1m1 minute ago More Malik Hooker or Deshaun Watson could be available to #Browns at No. 12. They really like Hooker and need a safety.
  15. Ian Rapoport‏Verified account @RapSheet 1m1 minute ago More The #Chiefs gave up their No. 1 in 2018 and their 3 this year to move up to No. 10. ========== You don't give up that much unless it is for a QB, but who is it?
