Re: 2022 Draft Sims

Useful article on the strengths of the 2022 draft (spoilers: defense, at least at the top of the first):

Re: 2022 Draft Sims

Hey I am right with you Moriarty. No better time to start looking at 2022 than when you've still got the 2021 draft fresh in your head! Do you have a feel for which position groups are strong or weak in 2022? That's the question I usually start off with--besides team needs of course!) Edge/DL is su...

And now apparently Davante Adams may also leave if Rodgers leaves. Adams' contract is up after the 2021 season.

Re: Damiere Byrd, WR - 1 year deal

A bit of detail in the article here:

Summary: 5-9 180 but world class speed; unlike many such players he can actually get open and catch (towards the end of the article).

Re: I'm dying to hear from you all on these late rounders

Herbert had a pretty productive 2020 as a Virginia Tech grad transfer (28.0% of the Hokies' yards from scrimmage) after two and a half blah seasons at Kansas (and a row with Les Miles -- I'll default to his side over Miles on that). He's kind of a washed-in-hot-water version of David Montgomery, mi...

Re: I'm dying to hear from you all on these late rounders

I think they view Borom as a depth piece who has something they want to see if they can develop. I've got doubts he's anything, but he certainly has the attitude they want, and appears to have good football character, so time will tell. I think with Borom they wanted to make sure they had the oppos...

Re: So I'm just gonna come out and say I was wrong on Pace

I think you're right about Pace growing in the job. Remember he was only 37 (iirc) when he started. The thing that sticks out to me is that previously with his 1st and 2nd round picks he would often take players who had great measurables, but there tended to be one question or another over their col...

1st round pick was a CB, their 9th defensive player chosen in the 1st round in the last 10 years .. the offensive player being, of course, QB Jordan Love.

Last guesses for #20 !!

This is what I think WILL happen, not necessarily what I think SHOULD happen: Kellen Mond. It'd be a reach, but QB is, as we all know, the most overdrafted position. I also think if Pace can trade down a few spots--like still within the 1st round, for the 5th year option--he will. My second-most-lik...

Re: Bears sign QB Andy Dalton to 1 yr, $10M contract

Is he the Mike Glennon of 2021?

It does suggest that Foles is going to be traded, though. Because why have two expensive backup QBs?

Then again, I'm trying to think about this rationally, which may be a fundamental mistake.

He's 5-9, 180 iirc. That would tend to push him down, as would the injuries. I'd guess late 2nd to 3rd.
