Round 6 (C) Thomas Fletcher - LS - Alabama

The fact WFT took one a few picks later tells me we knew they were eyeing one and wanted to make sure we got the pick of the litter. Jansen is old and we will save a million to cut him. Half this board was crying about late picks being useless, then (rightfully) celebrating over picks like Nixon and Brown. Well, we probably just drafted a 12+ year starter at LS while saving a million. Of course the negative brigade will manufacture some reason to be unhappy with it. 
 

Yesterday the 6th round had no talent. Today we passed over 3 potential OG starters for a long snapper. SMH this board is nonsense.

I posted before the WFT pick. I figured he could have been had in the 7th since it's not such a high demand position. I dont have an issue with getting a LS if we are moving on from Jansen. A million a year for someone who has always been reliable at what I feel is an undervalued position is worth it in my opinion, but it is just that, my opinion. I just really liked the idea of Morrissey because of his versatility without the injury history.

It is absolutely worth it, but if we think this guy can play for more than a decade for us and Jansen maybe only has 1 year left, then saving a million and moving on now seems ideal. Especially if we know we can go ahead and lock up the future at the position in the process.

We didn’t take Fields so some must now insist that every decision we make is stupid. Despite there being quite a few logical reasons for this choice. 
 

So it’s easier to just say that the literal best collegiate long snapper is “average” so we can continue pushing the idea our entire team is run by morons.

In true Huddle fashion 

hes the most pessimistic poster by far. 

90% of his posts are a negative spin on something. I wonder what his life is like

1.2 million according to sportstrac. They can cut him and save $987,000 though.

Well there you go. A million for a LS seems silly.

When you have a dozen draft picks and only 53 spots, the chances a late round draft pick making the team isn't great. So why not take the best rookie long snapper and save $1 million on your cap? Honestly one of the soundest picks at that point of the draft.

    • I hope so and believe the current management is setting the team up for sustained success, but objectively speaking, it's hard to find a team in the modern NFL that competes perennially that doesn't have a true franchise QB. Injuries are too much of an unknown on otherwise good teams. A franchise QB can cover for a lot of other deficiencies... exhibit A was Cam in 2015 elevating the offense mostly on his own. I'm excited about this team and the culture Rhule is creating, but that alone can't elevate this team without an above-average to elite level QB play. Sam has surprised me by how well he has looked, but it's simply too small of a sample size to make any pronouncements. If anything, it may take the whole year. If Sam can be that guy, I certainly think Rhule can create a perennial contender. Otherwise it's back to drawing board again. But, I do think Rhule is smart enough to know all of this, hence why we got rid of Teddy so fast.  Nothing, not even great coaching and personnel, can ultimately substitute for a truly elite QB
    • Sam doesn't get enough credit for his accuracy, imo.    It's always "he sucks, he was on the Jets and sucked.  Did I mention he sucks?  Did I also mention I wanted Justin Fields? WAAAAH!" by the Peanut Gallery. Anyway, yeah.   Sam can make some plays on the run.    He also has to be careful in making sure that the person he's throwing to is wide open and not try to force it 'cause that's where he would get in trouble. He's already had 2 such passes (one in both the Jets and Saints game) where he was almost picked off because of that.    Sometimes the Hero Ball comes out of Sam....and he needs to learn that throwing the ball away and trying again in the Next down is wiser than rolling the dice....
