Re: POSITION RANKINGS

Is everyone so happy about that tampa win in the last game of the season now? lol

Could have had #7, not to mention better picks in every round.

First 3 picks
#7
#31
#39

Now we are just hoping some teams drop the ball ahead of us so a top player falls. It's more likely that we package the 31 and 13 to get into the top 5, but we wouldn't have had to do these things if we played our bench in week 17. It also would have been nice to see SJB and Powell get some playing time, what a ****ing dumb move that was.

Re: POSITION RANKINGS

no matter how meaningless, I'm happy the Saints won instead of folding like TB did so they could get the #1 pick.

Some stupid team is going to draft a QB or someone else higher than they should and some talent will fall to 13 if the Saints don't trade up first

Re: POSITION RANKINGS

"Hoping" teams draft poorly??

I don't think that after consecutive decades of proof we can still call it "hoping"... more like "guaranteed"...

Heurman in the 3rd will be best.

Re: POSITION RANKINGS

I think you take the best player available regardless of position needs. Drafting for need gets you Stanley Jean Baptiste when Jarvis Landry(84 rookie catches from Tanneyhill!) was available.

I don't think anyone was "HAPPY", but players aren't gonna play to lose no matter what you think. I don't want losers on my team.

You act like its the fans fault we won the game.

You do realize that we could have sat key players and still won the game? Especially if Tampa planned to tank anyway.

It' all about how the top 7 or 8 shake out IMO.
Problem is if we move up, it'll have to be to no less than the Jets at No. 6 (and they've always fleeced us in trades) so it'll the ideal target will be the Raiders at No. 5...

Chicago and Atlanta are also building 3-4 defenses so their not going to want to give up the same players that we're probably targeting for our 3-4 defense...

Raiders run a 4-3 and the Jets run a hybrid, but have more success with the 4-3 front as well...
