  1. When the analytics guys and film guys both agree on someone, I get really excited. Lockett will be a steal in most rookie drafts this year.
  2. Chip wanted Matthews in the 1st last year but management wasnt on board. I wouldnt say draft position dictates how Chip feels about either. I just think JMatt is a better player, but time will tell
  3. He will be 23 in September. So 23 when drafted in 2016. Was meant to be satirical, but that is still very old for a prospect. I can't see him going with a high pick in the draft. Was shocked he didn't come out. Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick were 24 their rookie season. His age is fine if he's any good. Age is not my concern with him when QB's are playing into their late 30's. And neither of them went high in the draft, which was my point. Also, not many QBs come out at that age and find success. Finding the needle doesn't eliminate all the hay

  5. Apples and oranges. yeah that comparison is a desperate ploy. The point is just to say that what a team thinks a player can do,and what he actually can do/will do are not always cohesive
  6. They also saw toby gerhart as a 3 down back. Im just sayin
  7. so jacksonville is never going to get better? team is young, wait and see. to assume young players are going to stink when the coaching staff is fairly new and all the skill players are first or second year guys. They have no vet skill positions (other than the te) and this teams defense sure is crazy as it looks like it can be one of the better ones the way it is built. seahawks east as some have said before. i know every rookie last year had to perform at elite levels in order to get any faith going into this year, but bortles, lee and robinson were rookies, can they get a little learning curve or do they all have to be randy moss and odb in their rookie years? this will not be the same jags, they have a new oc too if im not mistaken? I definitely never said that, and I understand that most rookies have some kind of learning curve. I'm just saying that a) they still have other backs on the roster than can fill roles, so who knows if Yeldon is truly the lead or a "workhorse" in any fashion b) I'm not sold on Yeldon's talent, really the primary issue c) A "growing" offense is still not a "good" offense and perhaps teams stack the box and let Bortles beat them
  8. Really like their situations. I'm honestly not that sold on Parker. Can Tannehill get him the ball downfield, or is he destined to be underutilized bc of the deficiencies of his quarterback? Like you said, 2 player draft to me then it's realllllllllly flat.
  9. I don't "trust" any of them past Gurley/Gordon. I suppose so, but why take a player youre unsure about at a short lived position at 6? If Parker goes 5, then what? Who else is left that you are sure about (obviously knowing you cant be SURE about any player, not looking for semantics argument on that one )? I'd rather have Perriman or Agholor
  10. I don't "trust" any of them past Gurley/Gordon. I suppose so, but why take a player youre unsure about at a short lived position at 6?
  11. Isnt cardale jones like 24 already? Probably didnt want to leave OSU for a paycut
  12. I think i would rather have coleman or abdullah than yeldon. His draft slot overall was nice, but idk if i trust the team or the talent.
  13. Corey Davis seems a little low at 19 to me
  14. I agree with the first part. Is there any reason to believe that Palmer isn't going to be healthy? If Palmer is healthy then Floyd is going to be underrated (speaking solely about redraft). Floyd is the deep threat in a Bruce Arians offense. Palmer throws a great deep ball. Think Mike Wallace/Big Ben. He's currently going in the 7th round as WR31. Looks to be a steal to me. Floyd was worse with Palmer than without last year. Palmer was obviously banged up so I'm not saying that's repeatable, I just think the issue goes deeper than the quarterback. They may not be calling as many deep shots, or those deep shots are going to John Brown often enough to affect Floyd way negatively. I thought Floyd was going to pop off last season and he disappointed me. As a result, I have a lot of dynasty stock in him. I'm holding and hopeful, but I'm still concerned.
  15. So a top 15/20 finish among all rookies the past 20 years is bad. Ok. :slowlybacksaway: How many targets do each of them have? Don't believe me that Watkins is overrated...check out Matt Harmon's Reception Perception http://www.thebackyardbanter.com/reception-perception-sammy-watkins-and-cordarrelle-patterson.html The differences between Watkins and Patterson are, to me, more important than the similarities. Watkins was Buffalo's number 1 WR and drew top coverage as a rookie. The same could not be said for Patterson. And, of course, the raw statistics are heavily in Watkins favor. He didn't do well versus coverage or run as good of routes, as most thought in year one. That was my biggest take away. I always find stuff like that interesting, because I feel like if people studied Watkins as a prospect, they would have already known that haha. The guy ran a pretty limited route tree at Clemson. I just think that the production is pretty elite. Only 14 receivers since the merger have recorded 60/900/5 with 14 YPR (or better) as rookies: ODB Evans Watkins Keenan Allen A.J. Green Mike Williams (Tampa) Dwayne Bowe Marques Colston Michael Clayton Kevin Johnson Randy Moss Joey Galloway Bill Brooks Chris Collinsworth Most of those guys have had really good NFL career. I definitely understand the point though about being not "super elite". Like I said, I was much more in favor of Evans last offseason. But a low end WR1 career is still well within reach and would still be quite valuable considering his age.
