Dark horse for 1st round pick

A safety has not been taken in top 5 since Sean Taylor.   Taylor was a unicorn.  A rare athlete and football player.  But there is a player in upcoming draft comparable.  

Kyle Hamilton is that guy.  6'4" 220lbs of lightning.  I know positional value etc.  Really though can you imagine a secondary with a resigned Gilmore, a healthy Horn, Chinn and Hamilton prowling the center? 

Just saying.  Believe it or not this could be a option if... We can find a guard and or center in FA.   I prefer to either trade down and load up on BPA at positions of need,     ( MLB, FS, OL and of course QB) or take either Ikem, Cross or Linderbaum and save QB till next year.  Kyle Hamilton is a dark horse for that pick though.  Someone no one is talking bout as a option so...

It wouldn't shock me. Even though I've been pounding the FA drum for years, Amy pick we make in the 1st that isn't a QB or OL is a fuging idiotic pick.

QB class is terrible.

6 is too high for a QB.

QB won't help in year one.

BC is developing nicely at LT.

Too early for an IOL.

You don't pass on an elite talent in the top-10 to chase need.

I can hear all of the excuses now. 

I totally expect a pick none of us are expecting.  This place will implode. 

Maybe a safety isn't bad, it could be a corner.

Trade back

A big hitting safety, with todays rules, don't have the impact they used to in my opinion.

True.  If he was only a big hitting safety.  For his size he is a playmaker on the ball.  Him and Chinn would a fearsome duo.

Sorry, but Brady is not a long term answer at LT.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Probably not, most are not.  But you have seen a few games and he was decent--while it takes rookies a while to develop.  Pretty premature assessment, if you ask me.

We tend to throw away players if they do not make that big splash.  A third rounder who has been practicing at G is moved to LT and does fairly well.  You are ready to move on after what, three/four games? 

Our glaring weakness is the IOL. Do you think BC is a G?  If so, what is that decision based on? 

Not challenging your opinion (even though this was not stated as such), but I want to know what you have heard/see that impacts your opinions.  In my mind, there is reason to be cautiously optimistic about BC at T.

He was a 3rd rounder for a reason. He probably is a G. There are 3 top LT in the draft, though I think one is really a RT. They are top 10 for a reason. When you see how he graded out in his starts, it was mediocre at best. Go get an immediate starter and difference maker

    • So basically he was a real shithead back in his younger days. Seems like he's either out that behind him or gotten smart enough with it that he can at least avoid run-ins with the law.
    • You are getting too in the weeds. He has basic fundamental issues that shouldn't exist at this point. Yes my first step might be different at tackle vs guard. My pad level isn't.  My hip load isn't my punch isn't.  Like the guys on the podcast I don't like his stance. These are basics. 
    • This is his legal history:   As a player at Colorado, Bieniemy was arrested along with a teammate following a February 1988 bar fight.[12] He pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct and fighting in public, and was sentenced to community service.[12] He also received discipline from head coach Bill McCartney.[12] In 1989, Bieniemy was ticketed in Westminster, Colorado for driving a defective vehicle, and in Aurora, Colorado for speeding. In October 1990, Bieniemy's license was suspended for a year after another traffic violation. On March 21, 1991, Bieniemy was caught speeding and driving with suspended license on I-70 near Rifle, Colorado, going 92 mph in a 65 mph zone. On April 17, 1991, Bieniemy failed to appear in court on charges relating to the March 21 incident. A bench warrant was issued in Colorado for his arrest on April 23, 1991, two days after he was drafted in the 1991 NFL Draft.[13] On July 4, 1990, Bieniemy pleaded no contest to interfering with a firefighter who had been performing his duties to extinguish a fire in Bieniemy's mother's garage.[13] Bieniemy received an eight-month suspended sentence[14] and was suspended for one game.[15] Bieniemy was instructed to do 40 hours of community service and attend an eight-hour firefighting training session.[13] An assistant city attorney said Bieniemy failed to attend the firefighting training session as stipulated in the plea agreement, but Bieniemy asserted the session was optional.[13] On September 27, 1993, Bieniemy was arrested in Boulder, Colorado, for allegedly harassing a female parking attendant. According to the police report, while with his friends, Bieniemy put his hand on the attendant's neck, startling her. She told police he also made a comment about "a bunch of black males all at once being her worst nightmare,"[14] and that Bieniemy and his friends took off their pants and began urinating nearby. Bieniemy was also named in an outstanding warrant on a charge of driving with a suspended license. As a result of this incident, Bieniemy was banned from the University of Colorado Boulder campus for one year.[7][16] In April 2001, Bieniemy was arrested for driving under the influence and was docked a month's pay.[17]   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Bieniemy
