  1. Better than the average GM. Great at drafting skill positions. So so on the lines. The salary cap issues we currently have are largely due to Dimi being a victim of his own success. We spend our money largely on very good players that he drafted. I'll take that anyday. Just hit on the lines more often, and we'd be calling him an all-time great.
  2. Wouldn't hurt my feelings if it works out that way. I just don't think Chaisson, Matos, or Epenesa are good fits @ 16. Maybe this is the year we trade back?
  3. It'll be C.J. Henderson if Brown or Kinlaw is gone.
  4. A couple of trade downs. Steve's board and needs on the "Difficult" setting. 18: R1P18 DL JAVON KINLAW SOUTH CAROLINA 39: R2P7 RB D'ANDRE SWIFT GEORGIA 47: R2P15 EDGE TERRELL LEWIS ALABAMA 55: R2P23 TE COLE KMET NOTRE DAME 85: R3P21 CB JAYLON JOHNSON UTAH 103: R3P39 G NETANE MUTI FRESNO STATE 119: R4P13 S JEREMY CHINN SOUTHERN ILLINOIS 157: R5P11 G SOLOMON KINDLEY GEORGIA 228: R7P14 LB KEANDRE JONES MARYLAND TRADES TRADE PARTNER: PHILADELPHIA EAGLES SENT: ROUND: 3 PICK: 14 RECEIVED: ROUND: 3 PICK: 21 ROUND: 3 PICK: 39 TRADE PARTNER: MIAMI DOLPHINS SENT: ROUND: 1 PICK: 16 RECEIVED: ROUND: 2 PICK: 7 ROUND: 1 PICK: 18
  5. If you are running a single gap system (which we theoretically do), then I agree with you. In practice, our 0 to 1 tech guys actually do a fair amount of two-gapping on run downs. That's what allows Debo to get off and shoot lanes. What we run is really a hodgepodge. I like Blacklock a ton. I just don't think he makes our run defense any better. I still think Jordan Elliot is a better fit for that. There is no substitute for size in the run game. Even the league's best interior rusher is largely nullified when you run at him (Aaron Donald). Those types get great penetration, and it's used against them. https://ftw.usatoday.com/2019/01/super-bowl-53-rams-patriots-bill-belichick-aaron-donald If we go BPA, Blacklock could be the guy (I would trade back in this case). If we are talking best fit, I may go in another direction. Free agency will also be key in this decision. It makes for interesting times.
  6. Kinlaw. Then package a second and a third to trade up in the second round for Terrell Lewis. He and Chaisson are similar, but Lewis is stronger at the point of attack. After that, take the best available corner with the other 2nd. Hopefully AJ Terrell will be there.
  7. He's a 3-tech. Same as Grady. It would work on passing downs, but I still want a guy who can play the 0-1, command double teams and shut down the run. We truly need a big dude. It makes the entire defense better. That's why Poe worked so well when he was here. Kinlaw and Brown can play over the center due to their size. I'd rather have someone in that mold. Jordan Elliot is a 2nd-3rd round guy that could work.
  8. Every year folks say this, and then a day later it's "I can't believe Player X fell down the draft boards!". The reality is that there will be a ton of first/second round hopefuls that will fall, and a ton more that are seemingly overdrafted.
  9. I'd leave Kazee at free safety and draft a strong side guy.
  10. Chaisson is cut from the same cloth as Danielle Hunter. Their measurables and style out of LSU are almost identical. Epenesa is more akin to Reggie White in his build and upper body strength. Two completely different types of rushers, so scheme will be important for both. Both need a ton of work in setting up their pass rush and in hand usage. Today, Epenesa has better hands. Chaisson has better burst and bend. If both are there (which may happen), then it will come down to how DQ wants to utilize the pass rusher opposite of Takk. Don't get fooled into thinking that Chaission is just a SLB. He's way more than that, and will be better with his hand in the dirt.
  11. Yep. Draft RB and OG in rounds 4 & 5 and be done.
  12. Lynch may actually go undrafted. The only way he falls into the mid-rounds is by having an unbelievable combine. He's definitely a day 3 prospect at best.
  13. I had surgery on my right labrum, AC joint, and rotator cuff in December 2013. There are lots of other pain drugs not in the morphine family. You'll be fine there. For the first two weeks, you'll likely be house-bound and on painkillers. Follow the doc's instructions. They will save you from unnecessary pain. The biggest thing to remember is that you MUST REHAB!!!!!!! You'll start to feel better and want to stop rehabbing, but you should keep going. Make it a part of your routine (even if you do it on your own) for at least an entire calendar year. It sounds excessive, but its not. If you don't, you'll never get close to 100% in that shoulder.
  14. Stay put in all of those scenarios. Possibly even trade back.
  15. I like it. I would go G/C in the 4th and 5th. Other than that, it's very well thought out.
  16. Let's talk about this post and how misleading it actually is: 2009: Sean Weatherspoon was a good player before undergoing injuries. Moore was an enforcer who made the Pro Bowl in 2013. Injuries piled up for him afterwards 2010: This draft was all about 1 trade, and that was Julio. Quizz and Bosher are still both in the league (albeit at the end of their careers). Both did admirable jobs while here 2012: Bad draft. Ewing had potenial, but couldn't stay healthy. 2013: Drafted bookend corners that helped you to a Superbowl. Alford was handsy, but arguably the teams best man corner. 2014: Two pro-bowlers out of the draft. Shede was a high-ceiling player with too many personal issues. Worth the risk on draft day. 2015: Vic fooled us all. Teco was instrumental in our 2016 run. Hardy has been a staple on special teams, Grady is our second best player. Akeem King is starting in Seattle. 2016: Home runs the first 4 rounds. We never saw Fuller due to injury 2017: Takk is still a mystery. Kazee has had one exceptional year followed by growing pains (issues caused largely by usage and coaching. He's a FS and not a Nickel CB). Brian Hill is showing signs 2018: Calvin is a stud. Ito is extremely serviceable. Russell Gage made it ok to let go of Sanu's contract. Foye has exceeded all expectations, and may be our best tackler 2019: Jury is still out, but both linemen seem to be future mainstays. Sheffield has looked serviceable as well. If you hit on 50% of draft picks, then you will be a HOF GM. Most only hit 25-30%. TD has done a good job, but hasn't concentrated enough on the trenches through the draft. He did it through FA. What we don't know is if he was truly evaluating all players, or if he's just fulfilling the coachs' grocery list. I'm more inclined to believe the latter.
  17. Praying that God grant him and his family peace, comfort, good health, and provision. Praying that for everyone in this forum.
  18. It's simple. If one of them falls to you, you take him.
  19. Catch 22. If Cousins actually throws the ball instead of the pump-fake, and Beasley clocks him, I guarantee he would have been flagged.
