OBJ was hurt, Fournette and White look like studs, couple other guys probably got snubbed. They’ll be back up there next year.
Don't be ridiculous. One of those is still worth watching.
If you scroll though these results it looks like it actually happens few times per year (Saquon twice this year, Oregon and Tennessee did it, the Ram did it, etc). If you think about it, that might be the most likely kickoff of the game to get returned, just due to lack of focus or guys not being fully warmed up. Or maybe I just convinced myself of the reason.
Yea he's done - was injured half of '16 and unsigned for '17, so pretty much rules out that anyone would take him now. Had a hell of a career though.
All-Pro is the higher honor, as its actually awarded on merit. Pro Bowl is a popularity contest.
Definitely possible, but then there's also a chance they don't run him 25-30 times if they're trying to pace him for 16 games. Guess we'll find out next year.
"Grossi then added 'But what I've seen from Haskins on film? WOW.' before quickly running away"
You don't have to look too hard to find it. The 2017 version was basically the same as the '14 version (same completion percentage, less than a yard difference on YPA, +1 TD and -1 INT).
I said the same above. It’s cool that Zeke got taken high but if I was a GM I’d never do that. The leading rusher this year (Kareem hunt) was a third rounder. Best overall back (Le’Veon Bell) was a second rounder. There’s a ton of guys still available in every round at RB.
When in doubt, I’d just take the best OL or DL I could find in the first then grab a RB later.
What I’m looking forward to most is for when after a year of Marotti and Meyer making him pay for this, the week of the Game he’s going to look like one of those kidnapping ransom videos.
Staring straight ahead, fear of death in his eyes: “It...it IS a rivalry. “
No they don't. They have him going in rounds 5-7, which the same as most other mocks I've seen.
If the Browns have two top-4 picks and don't get a single QB they're going to be dissolved by the other owners.
From my very limited time watching both of them, I really think Rosen >>> Darnold. He seems way more accurate and actually has more of a track record than the 1.5 good seasons of Darnold.
I just wouldn't ever take a RB in the first. The drop off from who you get in the second or third rounds isn't nearly as steep as it is for other positions. Plus they have the shortest shelf life of any player and will be past their usefulness in a few years.
Related- here’s a breakdown of how many mock drafts predicted each pick last year.
Because RBs play for 4ish years, QBs for 10+. QBs are more important to the offense and should thus be paid more than the RB. QBs are far more marketable and someone you want to be the face of the franchise.
Any of the above really.
Here are his games against P5 teams:
2016, Nebraska: 16/32, 189 yds, 1 TD, 5 INT
2017, Iowa: 23/40, 174 yds, 0 TD, 2 INT
2017, Oregon: 9/24, 64 yds, 0 TD, 1 INT
Yea that doesn't exactly scream franchise QB to me.
I have no idea who they should actually take, but congrats to whoever goes to the Giants at 2 - he's bound for the HOF.
Price might be the Norwell replacement. Norwell is about to get paid somewhere.
If anyone wants to read the full thing, plus write-ups, r/NFL has the whole thing saved down.
Yea probably, but people with no perspective aren't worth paying too much attention to.
Wilson mentioned it later as a throwaway line. There about a 0% chance it was actually true. If for some reason they didn't want to use the guy who had been the backup all season (Haskins) and wanted a more mobile threat, there would be absolutely no reason to not go with the guy with actual game experience (Burrow) in favor of a guy who you just wasted a whole year of eligibility for (Tate).
That's ok. We didn't even make the NIT last year. If we get bounced in the big dance in the first game or two, that's still an A+ season.
