  1. This is how a good team does things. We are in position to truly go best player available since our only big need is at one of the deepest positions in the draft (DT)! BPA will give us young quality depth that could potentially be a future starter when we inevitably lose one of our guys to free agency, injury or age in the next few years. It also gives us leverage when guys come up for contracts where we could keep them but don't need to overpay because we have the next guy up ready to step in. This is where we've all talked about getting to.. it is how the Pats can constantly afford to let quality players go or trade them away. It is how you end up just reloading and remaining competitive year after year.
  2. Exactly the guy I thought of watching the video. Late round power back.. I could support that.
  3. I agree about Hankins... but I think he and the remaining free agent DTs are going to find their value is going to go down after all the DTs in this draft start hitting rosters.
  4. You make it sound like the off-season is over and we are getting ready to kick off the 2018 season with the players we have today. You get that the Draft hasn't happened.. the next wave of free agency hasn't happened (the June 1st cuts, the vets who lose their jobs because of draft picks, etc), and there are cuts and signing that will happen all the way up till right before week 1? One thing this staff and front office have done well with is picking up bargain basement free agents post-draft who end up being key roll players. There is a whole 4+ months left for that to happen. It isn't like we are down a bunch of starters.. we mostly just need depth. Sure, we do need a starter at defensive tackle.. which that also happens to be one of the deepest positions in this Draft.
  5. G-dawg: What are your thoughts about FB since we currently don't really have one? Do you see us grabbing one late or shooting for an undrafted free agent/someone else's post draft roster cut?
  6. And he can play FullBack.. and catch TDs.. Like Poe. LOL In all seriousness, Payne is a guy we really need to do everything we can to get. https://www.si.com/college-football/2018/01/01/alabama-clemson-darom-payne-touchdown-catch-video
  7. Some nice highlights on this guy here: https://www.hudl.com/video/3/2088284/5a277be0d21b6f18c49e0afa
  8. Don't panic on fullback yet guys. Zach Line is still out there. He is one of, if not the best FB on the free agent market.
  9. I agree and think this is the plan. Fusco gives us flexibility and insurance if Schweitzer, Harlow, or rookies (drafted or undrafted) aren't ready or able to step up. He is this year's Chris Chester. Not flashy, not a world beater, but solid and steady... and flexible enough to play C and G.. which is more than we had at RG last year. As far as who goes, I would guess Sambrailo.
  10. Before everybody loses their mind over signing this guy, let's not forget that Ben Garland is only tendered, not resigned. If he is at least equal to if not better than Garland, I don't see the problem with this depth signing. If he can compete with and beat out Wes, even better. At worst, we now have better depth at guard.

  12. This exactly. It is frustrating to watch big names get paid big money in free agency but this FO and coaching staff have built a consistent winner, building through the draft and selectively picking up a few difference makers and depth instead. It is the smart way to do it and is how consistently competitive teams stay in the hunt year after year. You find the bargains and lower cost castoffs that fit your system, the one year prove it guys to fill your gaps as you continuously reload through the draft.
  13. Good for Taylor. He should have plenty of opportunity there.
  14. Agreed. I honestly think we should do BOTH. Get someone like Siemian (who I think would be a good option) and draft a young guy to develop. It shouldn't be an either or. It should be both.
  15. We got the last pick in the 7th round through comp picks... so why not trade the first of our two 7th rounders for a younger backup QB? I think this makes sense.
