Thought it would be a good idea to get this up.

Guice is so good man, he's got unreal balance and vision. He's a FAR better prospect than Fournette and featuring him is gonna make LSU's offense a lot better.

Nah, but you have to buy a subscription to get access to the videos. It's like $2 a month, but I'm not paying for youtube links.

Think we're in for another Eric Fisher-as-top-pick-type draft.  Plenty of solid players coming out but no real home run to take at the first overall spot.
 
Says a lot of the poor QB situation when both the Niners and Browns are using (some failing) trade deadline now to secure the spot.

I know "wait til next year's QB class" is basically a meme at this point, but people really overhyped the shit out of these dudes. Darold was wrongly anointed after a bowl game and Josh Allen looks absolutely awful.

Any semi-prolific QB in college that doesn't rely on the read-option to be effective is over-hyped by draft experts. Just wish the NFL would have a massive meeting of the minds and agree to ditch the pro-style offenses as soon as Brady retires.

Josh Rosen looks like the real deal
Disagree completely. Tossing 20 touchdowns on a 4-win PAC 12 team isn’t all that impressive. He’ll go top 10 but only because of the lack of legit QB prospects. A team would be nuts to trade up for him.

On the contrary, he has better tools to fit the pro scheme better than anyone in the draft. The only one who could give him a run for his money at the top QB taken is Lamar Jackson.

I’ve made this point in other threads. Any QB that doesn’t rely on mobility is vastly overrated coming into the draft. There’s dozens of current NFL QBs who ran pro style in college, won 4-6 games per year, and simply aren’t very good. I’d rather take a later round flyer on Lamar Jackson. I actually think Jackson is a better pocket passer than most give him credit for.

This Josh Allen game against Central fucking Michigan is gonna make people think he's actually good.

The media guys make more excuses for him than anyone else I've ever seen. I really can't believe it.

Bet the Broncos reach on Allen. Basically Osweiler 2.0. Tall, strong arm, and likeable but looked JV running drills next to Mayfield over the last 2 days of Senior Bowl practice.

And as much as I dislike Mayfield, I’m starting to think he’s the best QB in this class. I can see him starting out of camp.

Kevin Zeitler and Joel Bitonio are fucking monsters in the run game. JC Tretter is a solid run blocking center, and Joe Thomas is Joe Thomas.
 
Saquon Barkley needs to be the #1 pick in this draft, and it's not even close. 233lbs and ran a 4.40 40?!
 
•He's about 10lbs heavier than Zeke who ran a 4.47
•He's about 5lbs lighter than Fournette who ran a 4.51
 
I mean AP ran a 4.41 back when he was 215lbs...
 
 
Take Barkley #1, and take your quarterback at #4. It was shown in Dallas that Dak struggled a lot more when Zeke wasn't playing, because if the teams are playing the run its easier for the QB. And nobody is scared of Isaiah Crowell in the backfield...

How much longer can the Browns continue putting off drafting their QB?
 
If the plan is to get their guy at #4, there's a good chance that two QBs will be off the board by then.  They've been burned countless times in the past by settling for a QB later on instead of taking what should have been their franchise guy.
 
Barkley very well could be a generational talent, but he's also a running back in a historically loaded running back class.  If the Browns truly feel like Rosen or Darnold are special talents, I don't think they can afford to roll the dice again by passing on them.
