apparently there was some drama in our draft room


Recommended Posts

Jenkins, Eichenburg, Little, Carman, Cosmi, Radunz, mayfield all went.  I don’t think they thought all of them would go. Especially Walker Little and Carman.  
 

And the non Tackle was Creed Humphrey

Good. If there isn't some back and forth during the draft then you probably have an envirot of a bunch of useless yes men.

I don't even know who was in the "war room".

But I doubt after going all defense last year, if Joe Brady was there, I doubt  he had his feet up and was like... first round corner? Whatever ya'll think.  Trade down 20 spots in the 2nd? cool.   I don't care what they told me...at some point I would be like, you mofos are never going to draft an offensive player are you?

I would imagine Joe and Phil would prefer two very different drafts.

Fit's draft was Ballsy...no doubt about it! If Brady or Cam Erving don't pan out and our left side remains weak it'll make life tougher on Darnold....A lot of critics will point to this part of the Draft. If they play great and this is the beginning of a playoff run then WoW! I'm hoping for Wow!

If I'm Joe and Phil was banging the table for a defensive guy in the 2nd it would've gone something like

"Phil, love ya bro but we've made 8 draft picks since we've been here and not a damn one of them plays on my side of the ball. So with all due respect and all, please STFU."

Tepper it sounds like. Who else would be pissed that means anything? Brady?

I mean, I doubt Rhule and the new GM even agree on every decision in real time.   Then you have the natural O and D splits.

I know there were people in the room who loved Walker Little, and I think that's where the anger stems from. Still though, Marshall was an excellent selection where we got him, and I am not so sure we are done at LT. 

Maybe trade down to the 20th pick Fit was confident that Walker Little would be there.  Miscalculation I guess.  And once a couple were gone he traded down again.

I fugging told y’all. Outsmarted themselves with that first trade down in the second. That’s why this draft is a low grade for me.

Oh you told us. We all feel stupid now. And as for all the A- to A+ grades our draft has consistently gotten, you better go email the likes of CBS etc and tell them to.

 

Look, draft grades obviously don’t mean poo but the reality is this draft was objectively good, even if it didn’t fall how you wanted it to. It’s done now regardless. But I suspect our staff is very happy with the results. As they should be. They did great.

I honestly don't think there was much of a dropoff from Jenkins to Christensen (and everybody that went in-between them). I would have liked to have had Jenkins because he is a mauler in the run game, but I absolutely am pleased with the trade getting Marshall and Christensen in the process! I am still pretty shocked Marshall slipped out of the first round and a receiver like Toney went way ahead of him.

Well they tried trading up for a LT in the 2nd round two years ago and that f*cking failed so let’s see how trading down works out this time everybody chill

I am expecting at least two more signings (LT & S)

    • I used to watch them because they practiced close to the fence in the shade--I remember that man verbally undressing Charles Johnson--I remember thinking, "That was a wasted pick..."  They would run goal line defense into that side of the field as well.  great view from behind the D--I remember watching Beason reading the play as fast as the RB--I was like--"He is the real deal!"  But the worst I ever saw was the constant harassment Smitty gave Dwayne Jarrett.  Abuse--Smitty did not relate well with new WRs--saw them as competition, I guess? Speaking of Smitty, the OTAs I watched showed me that he had no real friends--except Kasay.  They talked during warm ups the entire time. Finally, since Richard Marshall was mentioned, he came out of practice one day and told me while signing my son's autograph, "I am going to sign my (RFA) tender today."  It was sort of a story at the time.  I was like, "Congrats, I think."  He said he was tired of worrying about it.  Nice guy--kind of nerdy--and outcast of sorts.  But why he chose me to tell I have no idea.  I think he was going into the stadium to sign it--not sure, but it was not a story until later than day.  Going to OTAs back then was great because there were only a few people there--we were not the EBAY profiteers-just wanted photos and signatures at times, but mostly pics--so they would chat.  
    • Dont disagree with the first part, but the second? Man look at the donors to the democrat party. You dont think those rich people will find tax loopholes? Come on. The rich wont ever let their money be fuged with, not by anyone. Certainly not by someone thryve given that much campaign money to. 
    • Good stuff. Especially liked the analyses of Tremble and Nixon.
