  1. Agree 100% on Beathard. I am a HUGE Iowa Hawkeyes fan, so I watched all of Beathard's game. He is an awesome competitor, but his accuracy is horrible. I see almost no chance of him being successful in the pros. I would love to be proved wrong because I loved watching him play, but I just don't see it.
  2. I want no part of Cook because 1) his off-the-field issues and 2) I don't want to see us take a RB with our first round pick
  3.

  5. I'm a big Iowa Hawkeyes fan. There is no way in my mind Beatherd will ever be a successful NFL quarterback. He is a heck of a competitor, but WAAAY too inaccurate.
  6. Very unrealistic in my opinion, but how sweet would it be if Feeney was available at our 2nd round pick as happened here.

  9. Here's my latests one....would be stoked with the first 3 picks...don't think it's very realistic though. Your Picks: Round 1 Pick 16: Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State (A) Round 2 Pick 15: Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford (A) Round 3 Pick 28 (DAL): Zay Jones, WR, East Carolina (A) Round 3 Pick 30 (PITT): Erik Magnuson, OT, Michigan (A-) Round 3 Pick 41 (SEA): Chris Godwin, WR, Penn State (A+) Round 4 Pick 17 (WASH): Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma (A) Round 4 Pick 31 (NYJ): Damontae Kazee, CB, San Diego State (A) Round 5 Pick 6 (NYJ): Dan Skipper, OT, Arkansas (A) Round 5 Pick 15: Donnel Pumphrey, RB, San Diego State (A) Round 6 Pick 14: Johnathan Ford, FS, Auburn (C+) Round 7 Pick 16: Jay Guillermo, C, Clemson (B-)
  10. my latest...I would be ECSTATIC if our first 3 rounds went this way: 16: R1P16 CB MARSHON LATTIMORE OHIO STATE 47: R2P15 S BUDDA BAKER WASHINGTON 78: R3P14 S DESMOND KING IOWA 102: R3P38 C ETHAN POCIC LSU 121: R4P16 EDGE JORDAN WILLIS KANSAS STATE 160: R5P15 WR TRAVIS RUDOLPH FLORIDA STATE 199: R6P14 LB MATT MILANO BOSTON COLLEGE 237: R7P16 LB BEN BOULWARE CLEMSON
  11. I just don't see them bringing back Aiken (not arguing whether they should or shouldn't) Aiken seemed pretty unhappy with his role last year and I don't see that significantly changing this year. Bottom line is that it appears the Ravens have decided he is a worse option than at least Wallace and Perriman, plus they have already publicly said they want to bring in a "complimentary WR" I just don't thing the Ravens see Aiken in their plans moving forward and I would be SHOCKED if Aiken agreed to come back.
  12. Yeah, going into it, I never would have guessed I wouldn't take a corner until comp 3rd rounder, but Williams, Baker, and Elflein were too good to pass up at the times of the first 3 picks. I still don't think Williams will make it to us at 16, but if he somehow does, it would be awfully hard to pass up.
  13. My latest draft from Fanspeak: 16: R1P16 WR MIKE WILLIAMS CLEMSON 47: R2P15 S BUDDA BAKER WASHINGTON 78: R3P14 C PAT ELFLEIN OHIO STATE 102: R3P38 CB CAMERON SUTTON TENNESSEE 121: R4P16 CB DAMONTAE KAZEE SAN DIEGO STATE 160: R5P15 EDGE KEIONTA DAVIS CHATTANOOGA 199: R6P14 OT WILL HOLDEN VANDERBILT 237: R7P16 LB BEN BOULWARE CLEMSON
  14. Almost agree with you. I do think we keep 4 TEs, but I think it will be 4 of these 5: Pitta/Boyle/Waller/Gillmore/Williams. In my opinion, keeping Pitta AND Watson is too much money for the TE position...I know all of the other guys have questions marks, but they are cheap because they are on their rookie contract. Not sure which of those 5 I would cut....I would bring all 5 of those guys through camp and let them compete (or injury knocks one out)
  15. I agree that no QB in this draft class stands out. The only varying strategy I might have if I was the Browns is going after Garropolo if they think he can be their QB (I have not done any analysis on him to see if he looks like a starting QB). If you think he can be the guy, you try to work out a trade--I would try to do it without giving up the 12th pick, but if that is what it took and I thought he could be the QB, then I'd go for it. If you don't think Garropolo is the guy, then get solid playmakers and worry about QB next year and maybe take a flyer on a potential QB in the middle rounds.
