  1. I think those of us making the argument for safety are specifically thinking of 1,2, and 3 deep zones. Not so much man coverage other than maybe some slot periodically. He seems to lack instincts but hopefully it has been a motivation issue and a pay check might light his fire. Agreed at this point I have serious concerns but will wait for him to prove me wrong. In no way is he NFL ready from anything I have watched.
  2. I reached this very same conclusion and I hope that is what we do with him. He might make a darn good FS with some time as slot CB.
  3. Interesting you mention this. His production never matched his athletic ability at OSU. I am not sure he is destined to be a full time CB. I hope they give him a look at FS. I think he will play his best football with things in front of him and reacting to it. He seems to lack instinct or heart for CB. I tried really hard to like him weeks ago because we needed CBs. It just was not there with any consistency.
  4. Sheffield is a player I tried very hard to like knowing our need at CB, He just is not cut out for the position or his heart was not at all in it at OSU. I would be interested in knowing what he would do with a look at safety. I tend to think he would play much better football with things in front of him and reacting to it.
  5. I'm only posting there here because it was a response to another thread. There were a couple of picks we made considering player left on the board and where we picked them that confused me. This is not a complaint I was just wondering thoughts of others on these picks in case there was something I was missing. You will know the picks I am referring to if you read the post. Having time to think and study the draft I disagree with most of this. Lindstrom is in no way a D-. Because we took him so early you could make an argument for B-. Still I would probably give it a B to B+ based on everything including draft position. Easily the best OG in the draft and can play center. While I am never a fan of trading up I prefer stock piling picks. If you have a draft plan and a specific target then do what you must. I may not like the entire plan I like McGary as a player. If they were set on drafting him with their 2nd pick they had reasons the rest of us will probably never know. No way with seeing how the picks come off the board did he have a chance of making it to us in the 2nd though. McGary for where we took him would be an A or B+. As far as what we had to give up to get there? Ask me in 3 years. Kendall Sheffield is my first serious question in this draft. He is long on athletic ability with next to no production. He is not physical or instinctive. He does good when stuff is in front of him. I have been wondering if they may see how he does at safety. As I think he will play his best football keeping things in front of him and reacting to it. All that athletic ability should have translated into more production if his head was into it. I would give it a C- based on where we drafted him his college production and what was still left on the board. John Cominsky may be the most difficult to grade. Out of all the legitimate 4-3 ends left on the board he probably has the most untapped potential. He is a bit of a project but has the tools that he may get there with some coaching. Still considering some still left on the board I would have to give it a C+ to a B. Qadree Ollison This one I pretty much agree with. He should have been undrafted based on what we have seen from him so far. Not to mention he leads me to believe we are going to change our running game and maybe feature some more power sets. In which case we would need a FB I think. Jordan Miller another one I pretty much agree with. He has some tools just needs some bulk and strength. He could contribute some at CB.

  7. I have no problem with either of our first 2 picks. You could make an argument we reached a bit at 14 and you might be correct. You can not argue we did not get the best OG prospect in the draft. How good will he be? We will see. He will still be playing for us a long time. This will also end up being a pretty substantial upgrade to the Oline. Clearly with a new OC coming in they felt this was the most pressing potion to address. I think our run game may change some when you look at the RB we drafted as well.
  8. Well after this draft my biggest concern going forward is our run defense. We have a tendency to give up a lot of chunk plays. While I think we will be better this year we still need better Dline play in every situation. I like how the secondary looks with the draft picks. Just need more consistent pressure and better run defense up front.
  9. Not that I am aware of. Here is a good breakdown on Rypien and Stick.
  10. You are taking the wrong strategy to the draft. It is a lottery. In other words the more chances you take the better your odds.
  11. My wish list looks something like this for day 3. 4th. Daylon Mack DT Texas A&M and Isaiah Johnson CB Houston 5th.Joe Jackson DE Miami and Foster Moreau TE LSU 6th. Corey Ballentine CB Washburn and Bruce Anderson RB North Dakota State 7th. Brett Rypien QB Boise or Easton Stick QB North Dakota State
  12. 4th. Daylon Mack DT Texas A&M and Isaiah Johnson CB Houston 5th.Joe Jackson DE Miami and Foster Moreau TE LSU 6th. Corey Ballentine CB Washburn and Bruce Anderson RB North Dakota State 7th. Brett Rypien QB Boise
  13. I like Armstead also. If we walked away with one RB in this draft I want it to be Anderson from North Dakota State.
