Please don't draft Ferrell. He is not that good.

Lol...

How quickly some people here have flipped on Ferrell. We went from “top 5 we have no chance” to “wouldn’t touch him in the first”. Gotta love draft season.

I hadn't really watched him until the CFP, and I was super impressed, but I still had a ton of suspicion about how much was him versus how much was the talent around him.

I would've been okay with taking him right after the title game...  but not working out at the combine or his pro day is really suspect to me, and had thrown up a ton of red flags for me.  No, underwear workouts don't negate the film, but it also could cause someone to look a lot closer at the film than they would have otherwise if the workouts are unimpressive.  Maybe he knows his measureables would drop interest?  That scares me...  well, that and the amount of Clemson DLs whom were impressive in college who have bombed in the pros recently.

No combine or pro day raises an eyebrow, I think I’m more so worried about sweat, Ferrell, and another top de being at 16 and having to make a tough decision on who to choose.

almost exactly like last year with both Ridley and Moore being there at 24.

I totally hear ya. And it is hard to gauge who was the real star along that Clemson DL. I’m not blown away by Ferrell as a can’t miss prospect. But I do think he has a high floor and at the very least is going to be a solid everyday starter. He won’t wow you with his athleticism but he’s a sound technician with a good set of pass rush moves. I can see him being in the mold of a Brandon Graham. All around DE that brings more than the stat sheet shows.

Sweat is my favorite...  he had the production in college, killed at the senior bowl, and showed out at the combine.  Which is why I'm almost sure he won't be there at 16.

Yeah you always worry about player's stats being the benefit of the players around them (i.e. Daeshon Hall)... that said, I wouldn't be angry at the Ferrell pick

If thats the case then you shouldn’t even look at any Clemson or Bama defensive players then. 

I'm generally weary of Bama's players too so...  lol.

    • There was no sex trafficking going on...100% fake news. Who are you saying makes these "women think this is the only thing they can do"?  You do realize the place was run by some middle aged women, right? Do you care about "the truth"?  Doesn't appear to be the case... https://nypost.com/2019/04/12/prosecutors-concede-no-human-trafficking-in-kraft-spa-case/  
    • Where to begin.... So I like that we picked up with Jon clearly having killing Dany on his mind from the beginning of the episode until he finally did it. I love that tortured look of knowing what must be done because it is right and utterly refusing to accept it until the moment it is done because of his love for her. Great acting sold all of that well. The first half was super tense because of it. Also the visual of the throne being melted and what that represented for the entirety of the series. Just a great scene. Then we move along to the time jump (which we know is a few weeks thanks to Tyrion's monologue). I liked that whole scene as well...what I DIDN'T like was treating Jon the way they did. The Unsullied basically strong-armed them into exiling the actual hero of Westeros. He legitimately saved almost every major character and/or their people at some point in this show and certainly saved the entirety of the North by killing Dany. And to top that off, he's a better person than pretty much anybody at this point. And for his trouble, he gets exiled. Now, because he is a good man, he is exiled to go be with people who also love and adore and follow him. So while it is BS, at least it's not a true punishment beyond his choice in the matter being taken. I mean, he did CHOOSE to go to The Wall the first time around to prove himself. But dammit, he should be praised the land over for what he did. Everybody would be bending the knee to a genocidal maniac or be slaughtered by a genocidal maniac were it not for him. Everybody's roles in the new Six Kingdoms, sure. It is fitting. Sure, Bran becoming king is a tad unexpected. But the way he acted about Tyrion proposing it ("why do you think I came all this way?"). I mean, WHAT?! At no point did you ever suggest that the throne was your endgame but suddenly, once Jon kills Dany, you're all about being the king? The ending montage was cool. Sansa going from scared little bird to the Queen in the North is awesome. Arya doing her own thing under the Stark banner is cool (goes from feeling like she'll never fit into her family because she didn't want to be a lady, to renouncing her name to become a Faceless woMan, to reclaiming her name and finding her place within the family, just a great character arc). Jon being treated as basically the king of the Wildlings is awesome. Do wish we knew how much time had passed that they could rebuild the castle in King's Landing so quickly. Or repair Winterfell such that the great hall was so pristine. Or know if they fixed the gap in the Wall that the Night King came through or if they leave it as there are no longer any White Walkers and no threat North of the wall that we know of. I guess I am satisfied in the ending....but it left a bad taste in my mouth about Jon. I felt for him because it's almost a cautionary tale of what happens to good men who remain good. They end up eventually punished for doing the right thing.
