  1. Fanspeak draft simulator

      Yeah for the most part the guys I drafted were around where everyone has them projected. DT's are stacked deep so easily see Johnson being there in the 2nd, Cooper is a guy they are projecting late 3rd to 4th similar to the kid out of Duke last year. Xavier is super talented but everyone said he left to early and those guys tend to fall down  the boards.  There was a DE from LSU last year, our very own Trai Turner was one.
  2. Your Offseason

    Edit using my Fanspeak draft
  3. Fanspeak draft simulator   Fun little game to help get through this part of the offseason.   I drafted using the fan speak big board  1st: Kevin Dodd 2nd: Austin Johnson 3rd:. Nick Vannett 4th: Pharoh Cooper 5th: traded up with our 5th and 7th to grab Xavien Howard
  4. TE targets for this draft

    I Love Hunter Henry.  Kid is going to be a multi year probowler.  If there isn't one of the top DE's at 30 I would love to grab him.  If he slips to the 2nd we should pull a Funch type trade to go up and get him.  I wasn't impressed at all with Ed Dickson this post season.  Saw him wiff several key blocks in the Super Bowl and has been non existent in the passing game (not sure if that's Shula's play calling though) Henry overall is the best receiving TE with the softest hands out of any TE or WR in this draft.  His blocking is top notch too. Possibly the best blocking TE to come out in a while.  Was a Big key in the Arkansas rushing attack with Alex Collins.     Nick Vannett would be my #2 now and would love to grab him in rounds 3-4.  As been a man among boys blocking.  Lines up some at FB similar to Dickson here.  Great athlete with Gronk type size.  Finally showed what he could do receiving side of the TE senior bowl week and looked really good
  5. Matt Kalil to be cut?

    Would love him to compete for the right side. 
  6. DE targets for this draft

    You say Nassib is to stiff then go on to say you have Bullard and Kaufusi in your top 3? Bullard and Kaufusi are possibly the stiffest guys for 4-3 ends coming out.  Bullard really hasn't played as a outside rusher.  He played more of a Rush DT in college.  Guy is going to be a 3-4 DE, and a horrible fit for us.  Kaufusi has horrible bend.  He has some speed for his size and shown a couple spin moves etc.  But he is going to be a major project and may not even be a good fit for a DE.  Most scouts I have read have talked how he is to stiff and don't have him going higher than the 4th round.     Im higher on Nassib than some on here,  once you get past Ogbah and Dodd your not going to find someone who can come right in and start.  Nassib has all the tools, Height, Weight, Speed, and Strength.  We are going to get a Vet in.  Nassib is just starting to hit his potential.  He came in as a walk-on light weight.  He's a gym rat, and one of the hardest workers in this draft.  Thats what you want.  I'm not comparing him to Luke but thats the biggest things that has made Luke so good is his work ethic.  Same with JJ Watt who started out as a Walk-on and was a late bloomer, with good Measurables and what most said a top tier work ethic.  You let rotate in behind a Vet who starts and he could be a d@mn good player here in 2-3 years, and a solid player in a year.  Nassib has Good Size Speed,  is a Gym Rat, Super Smart (Big10 All-Acememic team 2 years), and has been quoted as one of the hardest workers out there.  Thats what I want in a DE, thats the formula for a top tier player. He is still pretty raw but with a kid as smart as him and work ethic, he can improve rapidly.
  7. 2016 3 biggest roster holes.

    Actually oddly enough Bene has been better on the outside. Last year his rookie season, he looked great and was NFL all-rookie team.  Even some had 2014 redraft him as top 20 pick.  He moved to the slot this year because peanut wasn't quick enough with his old age.  Thats the reason people wondered if he was having a sophomore slump or his rookie season was a fluke to start the season.  When Peanut went down Bene showed off again.  His first game back outside he looked like one of the top DB's in the league vs the redskins.  His weakness coming out was his speed and quickness, which isn't the best when guarding the slot.  We need that speedy slot guy more than anything in the defensive backfield.
  8. We need a DE... so whom?

    Gettleman loves his DL so we will grab one, along with keeping a vet.   Actually funny enough for the ones chiming OL, DE's develop faster than OT's lately now. 2015  1st round OT's: Flowers, Peat, Ogbuehi, Humphries 2014 1st round OT's: Greg Robinson, Jake Matthews, Taylor Lewan (titans already looking to draft OT #1 so he wasn't the answer), Ju'Wan James 2013 Fisher, Joeckel, Lane Johnson, DJ Fluker, Justin Pugh
  9. 2016 3 biggest roster holes.

    I'd say OL isn't as big a need as most think.  Cam had more time in the pocket than a majority than many QB's in the league.  Oher was just about a pro bowler, had we not made the Super Bowl he probably would have been in it.  The staff was really high on Daryl Williams and some thought he would have taken over for Remmers mid season.  Unfortunately he just got hit with the injury bug to start the season and set him back.  The Superbowl Cam took a beating after arguably the best pass rusher in the game beat him.  Drafting a OT early will not be the fix (see the saints and giants last year along with the redskins the year before with Moses in the 2nd).  And realistic unless you get the top OT in FA its not going to be a fix as well (see Beluga last year for GB who they re-signed, Rogers took one of the biggest beatings all season).   DE passrushers is by far hands down the biggest need.   Another spot to look at early like the 2nd round is DT.  This position is the Deepest in the draft and several guys with first round grades will fall into the 2nd.  Part of the big reason teams came back on us this season was DL depth.  Its easy to put the blame on the DB's but these guys did pretty good considering the situation.  The starters to end the season were on the practice squad and retired mid season yet still played as good as anyone in one division.  DL on the other, behind the starters left a Massive drop off.  Star's biggest weakness they've said since he's come out is he wears down easily.  When we drafted scouts said no way we can keep him out on the field 3 downs constantly through the game.  Stealing a 1st round DT in the 2nd to rotate in and keep our Studs fresh will be as big as anything outside adding pressure off the edge.
  10. Your Offseason

    Its still early, but put in your mock offseason just for fun.     Mine Cuts:  Jarred Allen, CJ, Stewart (most likely unless could take cut for his last year), Cotchery, Ginn Tag: Norman Re sign: Webb, Tolbert (If takes the smaller contract to try to get that ring), Peanut (vet min) FA:   Quinton Coples- Kid trying to turn his career back around, signs small contract with the home team.  Lamar Miller- A little $ to throw around.  Get a younger RB to come in and take over for Stewart in this run heavy offense  Matt Kalil- think the Vikings cut him, and we can get him a Oher type deal to come in and compete with Williams at RT   One of Mario Williams or Weddle if we have enough space while able to lock in star and kk's contracts long term  Leftover $$ start to work on our DT's contracts, at 30 years doubt we give Norman the mega deal after the end of next year.   Draft: Using Fanspeak   1st: Kevin Dodd-  big Athletic guy with a ton of potential.  Overshadowed by his teamate Shaq Lawson.   2nd:  Austin Johnson- people still saying we have needs at WR, Safety, and OT.  Many will Question this pick considering we are working on signing our KK Star duo.  DT is the Deepest position in this draft.  Part of the reason we saw teams come back on us this year is because the falloff behind the starters on the DL.  Stars biggest weakness even noting back to when he was coming out was him wearing down.  Guy is dominant but wears down a little quicker than some DT's.  Getting a guy who would be a first round guy in most drafts as a reserve is just the rich getting richer.  Johnson is still raw and has a real nice upside.   3rd round:  Nick Vannett-  big physical guy and a top tier blocker at TE.  Loads of potential catching passes.  Can step in and compete with Dickson or take over his spot (was highly disappointed in Dickson especially in the postseason) 4th: Pharoh Cooper-  slid down in this mock draft sim.  But may require a little trading up in the 4th.  Cooper is the perfect slot guy to go between our 2 giants.   5th:  used the 5th and 7th in addition to a 5th next year to slide back up late in the 4th and grabbed Xavien Howard.   If we get a comp pick it like Marquez North here.  Local kid who was highly recruited out of high school and looked to be the next big thing at WR after his freshman year.  After 2 years of being sidelined with injuries he has left early and taking a shot at the NFL    
  11. Positions we need to upgrade

    Swear Marty Hurney has created a couple of accounts on here.  Sorry but you are Clueless.  We had a ton of other holes when Gross retired to go and throw money or a high draft pick on a overrated OT.  We could still have Fua right now instead of KK and Star with a subpar OT that wouldn't do any better than Oher played this year.  Oher was one the highest grades out OT's this year and came pretty damn close to making the probowl.  He played 10 times better than that top OT Atlanta drafted last year and the one the saints draft. Ealy- the kid is in his 2nd year in the league.  By your standards, CJ was terrible until his 4th year in the league despite getting to play with Peppers his 1st 4 seasons.  Ealy just ended the season strong and would have been the Super Bowl MVP had we won tieing the Super Bowl sack record to go with his pick.  Oh well guess we should have drafted Morgan Moses one of those top OT's.  Sounds like you were one of the guys who threw a fit for not drafting Mose. Coleman had a few bad mistakes this season, but to say a guy that had a season like him is a patchwork guy knows nothing about football.  You'd rather just go throw that $$$$ out and we end up in Charles Godfrey mess.  Yes the Mess that put us back Way farther than Gross randomly retiring and is drafting a DT that an all-pro this year vs another bust top round OT. Funch started to come out.  Again you seem clueless. The only rookie WR's that looked better than him this season were Cooper and Lockett (a lot though came from his return skills). Darn we we sure should've drafted Dorsett or DGB over Shaq.  Gettlemans an idiot.   this isn't 10 yeas ago.  Kids return from ACL tears all the time.  TD, 3 tears.  Gurley came back and dominated.   i really hope you were joking with your post above
  12. Just like every other offseason everyone doubting Gettleman after he's proven people wrong.  People want to say sign Jeffery sign Mario. This isn't freaking Madden.  Jeffery is going to get some Huge deal.  We sign him kiss any idea of signing Kk or Norman extension goodbye.  We've got a core of players that just made the Super Bowl just 3 pleated the south and some people on here want to throw money out Hurney style. KB is coming off an ACL tear.  Plenty of young guys come back strong from it. This  isn't 10 years ago where it was a career ended.  TD's torn it 3 times.  Gurley tore it as a Big RB and had a awesome year.  
  13. Your wishlist for the draft

    First round guys.  Really need another DE badly.   Emmanual Ogbah     Carl Nassib-     Kevin Dodd-     ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   2nd round- (A):  Hunter Henry- this kid is going to be a stud star but sone have him dropping into the 2nd for right now. He does, would love to see Gettleman pull a Funch trade and go grab him. VERY good blocker.  Catches everything that hits his hands.     (B) Kendall Fuller- Have seen his name dropping down the board.  Some scouts have him dropping after starting the year off poorly then going down with his injury.  He drops, would try hard to jump up and Grab him.       ( C ) DT- this draft is Loaded at the DT spot. Could very easily see a first round DT sitting there at our spot in the 2nd round.  Adding a guy like Rankins, Austin Johnson, etc to add to our depth and keep our DT''s fresh would be massive (especially Star who has always been said his biggest weakness is getting worn down and tired from being on the field to much) (D) Jalen Mills- the perfect slot corner to put between Norman and Bene  ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   3rd round- look for a fast shifty WR with half decent hands to put in the slot between KB and Funch  Pharoh Cooper-       Will Fuller-     -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 4th (A) CJ Prosise- want this kid bad in the 4th.  First year playing RB this season, and he looked Real good (came in as a WR and was a special teams ace prior to this season).  Kid has great vision and balance along with good size/speed combo      (B) Spencer Drango- several people had him a border line 1st OT  had he came out last year.  Most people are saying he's a better fit at Guard after his injury.  Kid could provide Solid depth at both OT and OG.  
  14. 30th Pick

    I really don't like Bullard due to his fit in our system.  He played more of a rush tackle at Florida and most have a perfect 3-4 end mold. Not a huge terror on the edge.
  15. 30th Pick

    Kid is going to put good #'s at the combine and shoot up the board.  He's a project player who I don't want to touch.  Webb does more than just WR, QB, and return.  He's a great ST coverage guy to.  Braxton isn't going to come in and do that.  I also think it's going to take him a little to develop into that return WR.  Can't remember if he returned punts at Ohio state.  If not I fully expect him to take a bit like Armanti.  Pharoh Cooper, kid can come in and return and play the spot right away and we can get him on the 3rd
