Hoping my Boys can get one of the better safeties here in the 2nd round

Hell yeah KAJ, a safety or CB in the 2nd round would be nice and maybe swing around and grab Michael Jordan for some OL support and finish it off by taking Mike Weber to replace Rod Smith's as Zeke's BU, I'd be all right with both of those! 

The only bummer is it was super cool to see Jayln and Rod Smith both in Big D. #45 and #54, how can you not love that?!?

I’m having a hard time deciding if NYG not selecting Haskins or GBP taking Gary is a bigger disaster. 

add in that the Packers then traded up 21 spots to take Darnell Savage, Jr and that's a tough call.

They had to trade up to 21 to get Savage, who was 89th on our board? A nice player, but this is a questionable move by the Packers.

Draft Grade: C-
Pre-Draft Rank: 89
School: Maryland
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 198

I may have to give them both the award for worst first round in 2019!

On a positive note, it couldn't have happened to two better franchises!

They didn’t trade ODB. 

The couldn't trade him, they never even drafted him.

Add to it that the New York Football Giants also added Jabrill Peppers in that trade and it's like doubling down on stupid, right?!?

Just sayin...

If it's a question of which team is in worse shape today, they both currently suck but IMHO it'd be the Skins who are just a tad bit worse.

At least the Giants have a very solid RB and some offensive weapons to work with.

The Redskins lost their starting QB to a career ending injury after paying a pretty steep price for him from KC and have Adrian Peterson.

In either case, I thoroughly enjoy the fact that Dwayne gets a chance to play the Giants twice a year.

I'd also add that it wouldn't be the worst idea to let Dwayne hold a clipboard for a year or two, at least until Washington loses enough games to draft some OL to protect his ass!

Your list looks pretty spot on Archie, especially with Clemson sitting in the pole position.

I like your take on 2/3 and 4/5 almost being interchangeable as well, recruiting is such a fluid thing and definitely has almost constant momentum shifts. Kind of like a football game, hmmm...

Things have definitely changed at the WHAC since this time last year and while Coach Day has a ton of potential and a lot of momentum, there are a LOT of things that have to fall his way in 2019 for things to pick back up. I have confidence but also have some reservations and think it's important to realize he's NOT UFM, maybe better maybe worse but definitely different.

On a side note, Oklahoma definitely has some QB equity after having their QBs win the Heisman AND go #1 in the NFL draft two years in a row!

On a side note, I wonder how much time UFM has been able/allowed to set aside to make himself available to some of these recruits.

I know there is a fine line between helping and overstepping and I'm sure everyone from Gene Smith down has been very cognizant of keeping UFM close to the program but also keeping him far enough from the WHAC as not to step on the new HC's toes.

In the event that some of these recruits were "UFM's recruits" I just wonder if they could/would pull him in to help sway some that may be on the fence.

GR8 post BM, nothing like getting the wheels turning on a Tuesday afternoon.

1. Cincinnati under the direction of Coach Fickell. (They're no Thundering Herd but hey, not everyone can be Marshall!)

2. Oklahoma (they have won more than 2 NC's but nothing since 2000)

3. Michigan and getting in the top-20 could be a little tough for the boys from Ann Arbor.

Hey BM, that's a whole lot of abc's and 123's but tell me in your own words, is this a pro or anti stance that you are taking on the NCAA's latest clown show?

Comment 18 Apr 2019

But did any of them get tattoos? 

Right, because that would be some break out the firing squad level stuff right there...

Ryan Day's biggest recruiting win probably happened because Meyer stepped down

Agreed to disagree BM, Day had to get him to sign on the dotted line either way without UFM in the equation but just for kicks

You thinking this one here Zach Harrison

or this one here Jack Sawyer because both are huge signings but one is in the past and one is in the future.
