2022 is looking good. Jury is still out on P Turner 2021. 2020 late bloom for Ruiz. 2029 NADA... see Davenport trade. 2017 was solid.. although they SP is carrying on about Mahomes, he makes it seem he was Nostradamus... if he was, then he effed up. 2016, what seemed like a no brainer at first glance, now looks like WTF.

I know.. can't win them all. Hope springs eternal.

This will be in reality the first draft sans SP influence. Let's see what unfolds.
Notice that we have made EIGHT 1st round selections over the last seven years. Interesting, huh?

In the scheme of NFL drafting that's a pretty strong average.

Re: Draft Week - Final Picks

I predict our 1st and/or 2nd round picks for 2024 will be traded away because Loomis has no patience or strategy and the teams that get those picks will be very pleased with their position in 2024.

I will not be upset if we draft Torrence with our first pick. He held his own against Jalen Carter. Hes gonna be a beast.

Let's bring him home (born in Hammond) !

I wasn't aware that he started his collegiate career at USL & started as a true freshman.

IMO he's the best guard in this entire draft class.

Most of us here know that you can't count on Andrus Peat to play a full season anyways . Find his replacement.
