  1. I agree that the positions you mentioned (add FS to that list as well) are bigger needs and should be adressed earlier, especially given how the talent shakes out this draft. But they clearly need a replacement for Montgomery and if Hill is BPA at some point, why not? Especially if they pick up another late pick or two on the first two days.
  2. He's too small for such an early pick from the Packers' perspective imo. They need bigger backs to pound the rock in December and January, Hill would only be a 3rd down/CoP back and I don't see them investing the day two pick that it would probably take to get Hill. Now if he's there in the fourth, I can see it.
  3. Whoops didn't want to post anything, please ignore/delete.
  4. This. Rodgers has used Finley and Cook when he had them. I guess a WR is also possible at #12, but the class is more deep than top heavy, so that's probably not the best value at #12. I can see O-line or defense as well, but they need a big time playmaker most of all and there's a good chance Hockenson will be the best one on the board.
  5. Was hoping the Packers would take him at #30, but that seems to be a pipe dream. Might not even make it to #12.
  6. Maybe the Jaguars traded him to NBC, to star in "The Good Place". They already make fun of the Jaguars on the show all the time, might as well go the extra mile and have Fournette there next season. Makes sense to me - wasn't a common criticism of him as a prospect that he didn't really love football, but rather wanted to be a star? Now he can.
  7. Starting him over Gurley in one league and I may not regret it. Completely unthinkable statement just three weeks ago.
  8. Don't look at the toe. Look at the turf - there are two different spots where dirt flies up, both within the end zone, so he had to have his left toe down in bounds.
  9. Started Fournette and Davis over him in my dyno. That season's long over though, would be really maddening if that was a playoff game.
  10. Yeah his situation definitely isn't great right now. But maybe the coaching change will help a bit in the receiving game, so there's still some RB1 upside ROS if they can get the offense going somehow.
  11. Hard to trust him, that's just an awfully low weekly floor with barely double digit touches and their insistance to trout out Jackson makes it just a mess right now. Hopefully Harbaugh realizes that glaring imbalance on his team during self scouting over the bye.
  12. Easy 10 for me. Dorsey seemed very convinced when he took him first overall and Mayfield has looked every bit as advertised so far. Will he be a future HOFer? Who knows, but the question was about the level of confidence the Browns have in him to win games with him, and he's already proven capable of doing exactly that.
  13. Eh, the draft is a crapshoot at worst and inaccurate science at best. Draft spot is probably the single most important factor in evaluating fantasy talent (and which round plays a huge role), but even the single most important factor is just one factor of many. Besides, you don't get bragging rights for following the herd and your misses are easily ignored and forgotten.
  14. Hard to tell how good Dorsey is at finding coaches sind his track record is rather short (albeit good), so picking a number feels really arbitrary. But since we're already at it, have an 8. The Browns should be a very attractive job with all that young talent and Dorsey now has a head start in the coaching search on everybody else. That said, the reported candidates look promising, but are without NFL HC experience and therefore impossible to grade with a 9 or 10 on a confidence scale. I guess we'll see if another big name like Reid will come up (McCarthy would make all the sense in the world if he gets the boot in Green Bay), but for now there are no surefire names attached to the Browns coaching search.
