  4. https://www.footballoutsiders.com/stat-analysis/2019/sackseer-2019 SackSEER 2019 by Nathan Forster The top of the 2019 NFL draft is likely to be dominated by the edge rushers. As many as four edge rushers are projected to go in the top ten, and thus a team with a high pick and a need to upgrade their pass rush is likely to have plenty of highly touted options. But will this group live up to the hype? Will the 2019 draft be to edge rushers what the 1983 draft was to quarterbacks? SackSEER, Football Outsiders' statistical system for projecting college edge rushers to the next level, wants to throw just a bit of cold water on the hype following the edge rushers in this draft. Although SackSEER agrees that it is a reasonably deep draft for edge rushers, it also believes that this draft lacks a truly top-tier prospect like Khalil Mack or Von Miller. Rather, SackSEER lumps this year's top edge rushers together in a group of good but not great prospects that are all more likely than not to have at least some success at the NFL level, but could also easily bust. Additionally, SackSEER's best prospect this year -- who wins that distinction by a projection of less than half a sack -- is a player who may not even go in the first round. SackSEER is based on a statistical analysis of all edge rushers drafted in the years 1998-2017, and measures the following: The edge rusher's projected draft position. This year's projections use the rankings from ESPN's Scouts, Inc.; An "explosion index" that measures the prospect's scores in the 40-yard dash, the vertical leap, and the broad jump in pre-draft workouts; The prospect's score in the 3-cone drill; A metric called "SRAM" which stands for "sack rate as modified." SRAM measures the prospect's per-game sack productivity, but with adjustments for factors such as early entry into the NFL draft and position switches during college; The prospect's college passes defensed divided by college games played; and The number of medical redshirts the player either received or was eligible for. SackSEER projection projects the number of regular season sacks that a prospect will record in his first five seasons in the NFL. Unlike SackSEER rating, SackSEER projection incorporates the projected round in which a prospect will be drafted according to ESPN's Scouts, Inc. SackSEER rating provides a historical percentile rating on the college edge rusher's prospects for success as compared to the other prospects in SackSEER's database, irrespective of projected draft position. If you want to see how the prospects stack up based on SackSEER's trends alone, you can look at SackSEER rating; if you want to see how the prospects stack up based on SackSEER's trends when balanced against conventional wisdom, you can look at SackSEER projection. Below, we take a look at some of SackSEER's top prospects in the 2019 NFL draft, along with some similar prospects from previous drafts. Brian Burns, Florida State SackSEER Projection: 26.6 Sacks Through 5th Season SackSEER Rating: 96.1% Similar Historical Prospects: Jadeveon Clowney, Dontay Moch Brian Burns' good combination of production and athleticism earns him the top spot in this year's SackSEER projections. Burns recorded 23 sacks and seven passes defensed in only three seasons with the Florida State Seminoles. Burns' workouts, however, were even better. Burns ran a freakish 4.53-second 40-yard dash -- the same time that Jadeveon Clowneyrecorded in 2014. Burns' broad jump and vertical jump were not quite as good, but were still well above average, leaving Burns with an excellent explosion index. Burns also recorded a strong 7.01-second 3-cone time. The greatest knock on Burns is that he played light at Florida State -- he tipped the scales at only 235 pounds. However, Burns bulked up to 249 pounds for the combine and obviously did not lose much of his athleticism. Burns may have to play as an outside rush linebacker at the NFL level, but he has a great chance to excel in that role. (Click here for Derrik Klassen's analysis of Burns' film in Futures.) Josh Allen, Kentucky SackSEER Projection: 26.3 Sacks Through 5th Season SackSEER Rating: 87.5% Similar Historical Prospects: Ryan Kerrigan, Aldon Smith Josh Allen has an all-around good, but not great, projection. Allen had 17 sacks in 13 games as a senior. Those are really good numbers, but almost all senior edge rushers drafted in the first few rounds have good senior numbers, so those 17 sacks do not give Allen the boost you might otherwise expect. Similarly, Allen had a good combine workout, but it was far from historically great. Allen ran a 4.63-second 40-yard dash, which is a great time for a 262-pound player, but he was only average on his jumps, recording vertical and broad jumps of 33.5 inches and 9 feet, 10 inches, respectively. Continuing the theme, Allen had above average passes defensed numbers, but they are only slightly above average. Allen had one interception and eight passes batted away, which is again good not great. For perspective, Allen's passes defensed are way better than famous bust Vernon Gholston (who only had one pass defensed in his college career), but not quite as good as superstar Khalil Mack (who had 25 passes defensed). The upside to Allen's SackSEER is that his numbers are all-around good and he has no glaring weaknesses (at least from a statistical standpoint). In that regard, Allen is similar to Ryan Kerrigan, who was also unusual in his uniformly good but not quite great SackSEER numbers. (Click here for Derrik Klassen's analysis of Allen's film in Futures.) Montez Sweat, Mississippi State SackSEER Projection: 25.7 Sacks Through 5th Season SackSEER Rating: 89.7% Similar Historical Prospects: Bruce Irvin, Anthony Barr Montez Sweat proved at the combine that he is explosive, fast, and quick. He recorded a 2019 edge rusher-best 4.41-second 40-yard dash as well as good jumps and a good 3-cone time. Sweat also proved that he was good at sacking the quarterback at Mississippi State, recording 22.5 sacks in just 26 games for the Bulldogs. The one black mark on Sweat's SackSEER is his zero career passes defensed. In that regard, Sweat is very similar to former first-round edge rusher Bruce Irvin. Irvin, like Sweat, entered the draft as a senior after only playing two seasons of major college football. Irvin also had good combine numbers and lots of college sacks, but only one pass defensed. Irvin finished his first five years in the NFL with 29 sacks, which is very close to Sweat's projection. Nick Bosa, Ohio State SackSEER Projection: 22.1 Sacks Through 5th Season SackSEER Rating: 67.4% Similar Historical Prospects: Joey Bosa, Brandon Graham Despite being ranked No. 1 overall on many boards, Nick Bosa just does not have the numbers to top SackSEER's list of top edge rushers. Bosa had good college sack production, but much of it is uncertain. Bosa was on the way to having a breakout season as a junior, but he only played four games, so there is no way of knowing whether he would have kept up that pace. Bosa also has only two career passes defensed, which is below average for a drafted edge rusher. Bosa's explosion numbers at the combine were also below average. None of his metrics doom him to failure -- far from it. Bosa is still an above-average edge rusher prospect, but he does not possess the typical indicia of a future NFL star at the position. To be fair to Bosa, SackSEER somewhat underprojected his brother, Joey Bosa. It could very well be that Nick has the same qualities that allowed his brother to overperform his SackSEER projection. That said, Joey Bosa's projection was similar, but stronger than Nick's. Joey had slightly above average passes defensed numbers, while Nick's are below average. Joey's and Nick's explosion numbers were similar, but Joey was much quicker, recording a 6.89-second 3-cone time as opposed to Nick's 7.10-second time. Nick Bosa's uncertain SackSEER should at least give teams pause before they assume he will be able to replicate his older brother's success in the NFL. Rashan Gary, Michigan SackSEER Projection: 22.1 Sacks Through 5th Season SackSEER Rating: 71.8% Similar Historical Prospects: Frank Clark, Margus Hunt Rashan Gary is the quintessential raw talent at the position. Gary has amazing athleticism for his 277-pound size. Gary ran the 40-yard dash in 4.58 seconds, which he paired with a 38-inch vertical leap and a 10-foot-flat broad jump. However, Gary does not have much sack production -- his best season is 5.5 sacks in 13 games as a sophomore. Also, he did not record a single pass defensed. Luckily for Gary, there are certainly examples of successful edge rushers in the NFL who had the athletic measureables but lacked college production. For example, Frank Clark, who also attended the University of Michigan, had good explosion numbers for his size, but few college sacks. Despite his lack of college bona fides, Clark has 35.0 NFL sacks in just four years. Gary could follow a similar career trajectory; however, he could just as easily end up like Margus Hunt, a freakish athlete who has mostly been relegated to role player status in the NFL. Zach Allen, Boston College SackSEER Projection: 19.6 Sacks Through 5th Season SackSEER Rating: 71.8% Similar Historical Prospects: Erik Flowers, Jabaal Sheard Zach Allen is a big defensive end at 280 pounds who might be better suited as a 3-4 defensive end or a run-stopping end in a 4-3. Allen is far from a Julius Peppers-level athlete, running the 40-yard dash in a glacial 5.0 seconds. However, Allen leads the class in passes defensed rate, intercepting two passes and batting down 14 others for the Eagles, suggesting possible untapped pass-rushing potential. Oshane Ximines, Old Dominion SackSEER Projection: 18.0 Sacks Through 5th Season SackSEER Rating: 80.6% Similar Historical Prospects: Shaun Phillips, Daniel Te'o-Nesheim Oshane Ximines is a small-school prospect who is worth a flyer in the late second or early third round. After all, Jared Allen and Robert Mathis, two highly successful edge rushers in the NFL, attended Idaho State and Alabama A&M, respectively. Although Ximines had only a mediocre combine, he was extremely productive in college, with over 30 sacks along with 13 passes defensed. Clelin Ferrell, Clemson SackSEER Projection: 17.6 Sacks Through 5th Season SackSEER Rating: 49.0% Similar Historical Prospects: Victor Abiamiri, Michael Haynes Clemson has sent a lot of edge rushers to the NFL with varying degrees of success. According to SackSEER, Ferrell is a thoroughly average draft prospect who probably does not belong in the first two rounds. Ferrell had few passes defensed in college and his sack numbers were just OK. Ferrell did not do a complete workout at the combine and did not work out at his pro day due to a toe injury. The only SackSEER-relevant drill Ferrell performed was the 3-cone, which was a below-average 7.26 seconds. Full SackSEER Projections, 2019 Prospects Edge Rusher College Proj.

  5. LOL. Peter King knows more than everyone on this board put together. The best mocks might only have 8 correct picks as every errant pick affects 2-3 more as do trades.
  6. Brian Burns' collegiate career was an unfortunate casualty of Florida State's recent instability. The collapse of Jimbo Fisher's reign in 2017 led to an unproductive 4.5-sack season for Burns on the way to a seven-win campaign for the team. Willie Taggart was hired away from Oregon to replace Fisher and reignite the spark in Tallahassee, but Taggart's first season with the Seminoles in 2018 was a disaster. Though Burns himself found his footing again with 10.0 sacks, Florida State ended the season with a pitiful 5-7 record. The program's demise made it difficult for Burns to shine the way a player of his caliber deserves to. Nevertheless, Burns got his opportunity to show off at the NFL combine. Burns kicked off the event by measuring in at 6-foot-5 and 249 pounds. With many speculating Burns could weigh in around 235 pounds, nearly hitting the 250 mark is encouraging, even if Burns probably did not play at that weight. Burns then went on to tear up the athletic testing. His 4.53-second 40-yard dash and 129-inch broad jump both placed in the 97th percentile all-time among edge players. Additionally, Burns shined with a 36-inch vertical jump (82nd percentile) and a 7.01-second 3-cone drill (81st percentile). Though Burns did have the advantage of doing these drills at a lighter weight than most other edge players, he clearly showed off above-average overall athleticism with elite upfield burst. The straight-line speed and outward burst Burns displayed in the 40-yard dash and broad jump were no surprise based on his film. Most pass-rushers have a calling card of some sort, and Burns' is certainly his initial explosion off the snap. The amount of ground Burns can cover within his first two steps is overwhelming. Here is an example of Burns (arrow) eating up a ton of space in just two steps. With his first step, Burns is already fully out of his stance and starting to cross the line of scrimmage. Burns' second step puts him a yard and a half past the line of scrimmage with an outside angle to get around the offensive tackle. via Gfycat (Click here if you are having trouble loading the image.) Unfortunately, Notre Dame had called for a one-step drop, which would explain the offensive tackles' short sets. Burns was not able to convert his explosive first step into anything on this play. Still, that Burns could even threaten to pressure on a play like this is a testament to his get-off. via Gfycat (Click here if you are having trouble loading the image.) Here is another example of Burns flying off the line of scrimmage at the top of the screen. Burns is again stymied by offensive design -- this time by a running back chipping him outside -- but his initial burst is on full display. The amount of ground Burns covers with his first couple of steps over his edge counterpart Joshua Kaindoh (13) is stunning. Burns' burst off the snap consistently puts him in position to win around the edge. When Burns earns those opportunities to get around the arc, he shows the necessary bend to finish plays and get to the quarterback. Burns is not an elite bender such as Von Miller, but he is more than capable of turning the corner on offensive tackles. Look at the following play versus Miami as an example. via Gfycat (Click here if you are having trouble loading the image.) By his third step, Burns has to decide whether he can win outside or if he needs to redirect inside. Burns opts for the textbook outside approach in this scenario and commits to the tackle's outside shoulder. As the tackle reaches to get a hold of Burns, Burns slaps the tackle's hands down and bends down to turn the corner. Burns is able to get low enough to turn at a sharp 90-degree angle and blow right past the offensive tackle, something many pass-rushers struggle to pull off. Once around the blocker, Burns works back inside to the quarterback and slaps the ball out of his hand, resulting in a strip-sack recovered by Florida State. Burns is not a one-trick pony pass-rusher, though. There is more to Burns' arsenal than using sheer speed to get around opposing tackles. Burns can use that same speed to bait offensive tackles into setting too far outside, then work back inside for a more direct path to the quarterback. Burns' inside side-step and swim move, in particular, are punishing. via Gfycat (Click here if you are having trouble loading the image.) via Gfycat (Click here if you are having trouble loading the image.) via Gfycat (Click here if you are having trouble loading the image.) This handful of plays highlights how easy it is for Burns to side-step inside to create a path to the quarterback. In all three examples, Burns coaxes the offensive tackle into committing his frame outside, then stamps his outside foot in the ground and shoots inside the blocker. Burns uses a hand swipe in unison with his inside step so as to not give the offensive tackle a clean chance to push him off his path. Between Burns' nimble feet and appropriate hand-fighting, it is a tall order for opposing tackles to protect against this move. Burns can also spice up his inside approach with a DeMarcus Ware impression. Throughout Ware's career in Dallas and Denver, the future Hall of Famer became known for his spin move. Both inside and outside, Ware could set up offensive tackles one way and spin them out of their shoes going the other way. Burns is not quite that deadly with it, but the spin move is certainly a viable part of his skill set. via Gfycat (Click here if you are having trouble loading the image.) The key for Burns here is timing and balance through contact. Burns starts off the play by getting upfield quickly, as he often does, and getting the offensive tackle to turn his hips outside too early. As soon as the offensive tackle lunges, Burns slaps the tackle's hands and spins inside while sticking tight to the tackle's body. Burns is then able to get the angle inside and push through the offensive tackle, earning him a free run at the quarterback for a sack. That blend of timing, footwork, hand-fighting, and burst through contact is special stuff. Burns is as polished a pass-rusher as you can ask of a draft prospect. Not only does Burns have a clear calling card in his speed and burst, but he can build off of that primary strength with countermoves. That Burns can reliably win in a handful of ways, both with nuance and with raw talent, suggests he will be an effective pass-rusher from the get-go. The issue with Burns is run defense. Burns' 249-pound combine weight was almost certainly not his playing weight, and that shows itself on the film all too often. Burns struggles to hold his own on the edge in run defense. When asked to set the edge, Burns tends to get turned outside and bullied off the point of attack. Burns' performance versus North Carolina State best encapsulates this concern. via Gfycat (Click here if you are having trouble loading the image.) via Gfycat (Click here if you are having trouble loading the image.) North Carolina State's left tackle put on his best bouncer impression to kick Burns out of the club in both clips. Burns makes the correct initial step to get in position on both plays, but is repositioned further outside by the left tackle with little resistance. In turn, the running back slices inside of where Burns should be defending and turns up the field for a huge gain. Burns simply lacks the strength to play in close quarters with tougher offensive linemen like this. Florida State's coaching staff tried to work around Burns' poor run defense as much as possible. For one, Burns almost exclusively played on the wide side of the field when his hand was in the dirt. If you go back to rewatch all nine of the clips above, Burns is aligned to the wider portion of the field, which should theoretically give him more space to operate in both phases of the game. Furthermore, Burns was often moved to an off-ball position any time Florida State was backed up inside the 5-yard line. The idea was that if Burns could not be trusted to defend his gap when things got congested, he may as well be used as a traditional linebacker and "chase" player where his athleticism could thrive. In some instances, the move paid off and Burns made a play of which he may not have otherwise been capable. via Gfycat (Click here if you are having trouble loading the image.) Take this pressure versus the Florida Gators, for example. Burns is in a stand-up position over the right tackle, positioned between his own defensive end and defensive tackle. Burns shuffles down at the snap of the ball to defend the run, but the Gators fake the hand-off and instead try to throw a screen to the opposite side of the field. With the screen concept snuffed out by the rest of Florida State's defense, the quarterback bails to his right to salvage the play. Burns, already free because he was aligned off the ball, chases down the quarterback in space and forces him to throw the ball away. It hurts Burns' value that he can not be a reliable run defender, especially in the red zone, but at least he has some way to make up the lost value. Burns' speed and comfort in space could make him a viable off-ball linebacker or stand-up 3-4 outside linebacker in specific scenarios. That being said, Burns is not being drafted for his run defense or lack thereof. Burns is an excellent pass-rusher who can win in a number of ways and has an athletic profile that suggests his potential floor as a player is high. Pass-rushers with Burns' 40-yard dash, jumps, and 3-cone marks do not fail very often. Burns can step in and contribute as a pass-rusher right away. He is developmentally ahead of the curve in terms of his pass-rush approach and will have no issue adjusting to the speed of the NFL. Burns will be a quality No. 2 pass-rusher as a rookie before blossoming into a force off the edge over the following years.
  7. Gameday roster. I don't care about a guy like Justin Zimmer if he's inactive 16 weeks. I want to know my 45 is better than your 45.
  8. A young, talented top tiered RT would transform the entire,line. I think we will still be ok, but I’d like to be able to impose our will. While the two new OGs May be a wash as far as how good they are verses how good Chester and Levitre, they are much bigger and that will help us more in short yardage and red zone play. Pro Bowl LT Matthews, All Pro Center Mack, and a top young talent at RT, and its really not a problem to have to relatively average OGs. The line could still be dominating and impose its will. Even in 2016 our OL played good enough to produce the 7th highest scoring offense innNFL history.
  9. Good news.
  10. This is true.
  11. I chuckled. Congrats. I do appreciate that nobody thus far has tried to lay that abomination at the hand of perpetual scapeout Dimitroff. Nobody drafts a 4th quarter meltdown for the ages.
  12. The salary cap will increase. It's about being creative. I'm guessing he signs a long term deal soon. We'll have to see.
  13. I co-sign everything you posted. But I'll add that it ticked me off that his death was also pimped in a jingoistic manner that everybody familiar with him knew he'd abhor. He died a preventable death and then had his legacy rewritten by the people responsible for it. Shameful.
  14. We can't afford him at 15 mill long-term, given our Falcon-for-life stamp on Julio, and the millions waiting for Debo, who is the better player. Either way, if the two above facts remain true Grady is in his last season as a Falcon. Even if we don't resign Vic, we have third mosr expenisve QB in the league and there are consequences...
  15. That makes the sweep (especially the first two games) from Arizona even more frustrating.
  16. In all honesty boys, I would list him as 25th. 28-3 = 25.
  17. Impeaching Trump will **** up his ego so hard, like... really, really hard. Everything he does, he compares to Obama, and there's no legitimate way to "clear" an impeachment, failed or successful, off his record. And there's no way to put one on Obama's. It's an undeniable strike on his record.
  18. Given how bad the 2013 draft was.. Trading for him was right 2013 was BAD in terms of overall quality of the draft. His contract was in line with his skill set for the position.................. much like Julio's was in 2015. Jalen Collins is more of a cause of having to use a draft pick on a corner than Trufant is.
  19. Baby sharks duh duh da doo doo doo Baby sharks duh duh da doo doo doo Baby sharks duh duh da doo doo doo Baby sharks
  20. but then he would just be hitting his own richard with a hammer because he would be losing so much money. per week,
  21. I remember a couple years ago i was the only TD fan here. Interesting how things change on TATF.
  22. Thomas Dimitroff ranked top 5 NFL GM by NFL.com @FalconFanSince1970 By Dave Choate Apr 22, 2019, 9:00pm EDT general managers have remained consistently high in the league itself and has swung wildly between admiration and disrespect elsewhere. When the Falcons nabbed Matt Ryan, traded for Tony Gonzalez, and landed key players like Michael Turner and Julio Jones, he was beloved among fans. When the team stunk the house out in 2013 and 2014 and muddled through 2015, he was pretty well reviled. If you consider his entire stint in Atlanta, though, it’s hard to argue against Dimitroff being anything but a quality executive, and certainly one of the primary architects of the best stretch of success this team has ever known. His well-known shakiness drafting in the trenches has been his Achilles heel despite better success with the likes of Jake Matthews and Grady Jarrett, but the team he’s built has been pretty successful, having one of the ten best regular season records in the league since he arrived and a surprisingly decent playoff record considering you know what never mind. That’s a typically long-winded way of saying that you shouldn’t be stunned to learn that Dimitroff, who usually grades out in these kinds of rankings as a mid-tier GM, is all the way up at #5 on Gregg Rosenthal’s new rankings at NFL.com.
  23. The one where the guy didn't find out that he was drafted by the Eagles until 55 years later completely blew my mind. Not all that surprised about the Redskins not making a single 1st round pick during the 70s. George Allen was their HC during most of that decade. Allen hated rookies and loved having seasoned old vets on his teams.
