    Pats Draft Poll

    They have a notoriously small board, so it might be that, or it might be "nah, not for us."

    If whatever is wrong with one of these guys is enough to get him to slip to 15, who's to say the Patriots wouldn't also be scared off by it?

    He had no arm whatsoever his last year in Denver, but has arm was well below average in 2013 and 2014 when he put up those monster numbers (2012, too). He never got back his pre-2011 arm strength after multiple neck surgeries.

    Again, I think Drew Brees is a pretty strong counter-example to this point, as is late-career Manning. Ceiling at QB, I would argue, is mostly defined by mental traits and technical traits. Brees had a weak arm but is arguably the most accurate QB of all time. Manning was as smart as any QB...

    His 40 was averageish, as you say. His 3-cone and shuttle were also pretty much average. But having average speed and agility at 6'3" 228 pounds is really impressive. He has an 8.45 RAS. But if you don't consider size part of the physical traits, fine: what I'm really objecting to is...

    I don't think that's an accurate characterization of Harry - he tested really well, he is just terrible against press and his route-running is bad. I would not have described him as "polished." A.J. Brown was a lot more polished coming out IMO. They've gotten burned on different kinds of guys...

    This is basically what Belichick did in Cleveland. Their big QB move was Vinny Testaverde for a song after Testaverde washed out of Tampa Bay.

    Before the Draft: Tales told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing

    Is this based on anything or are you just guessing? I think OL and DE are a lot less safe than you have them here.

    Before the Draft: Tales told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing

    I wouldn't say it's not a skill; I would say that you've got 32 mostly smart people in mostly smart organizations dealing with roughly the same imperfect amount of information in an exercise (predicting the future) with a vast amount of uncertainty. I do think you can be shitty at drafting; I...

    I think there's always stuff you can tell from the film and stuff you have to extrapolate from. For all his fewer attempts, Lance played in a more "pro style" offense than any of the other top QB prospects. So if you're the 49ers and you run a heavily under center, bootleg roll out, play action...

    If they skipped the Pro Day, when they obviously need a QB, it would be too obvious they're interested and just skipping to make people think they're not interested. So they've got to send somebody so they don't tip teams off. Unless, teams realize that they have to send somebody or tip them...

    It's not a great defensive class at the top. It will likely be the first year since 2012 an edge rusher doesn't go in the top 10, and a interior defensive lineman might not go in the top 20. You could argue the two best defensive prospects are Micah Parsons and Caleb Farley, and both opted out...

    wtf is the Davey O'Brien Award and how did Mac Jones win it?

    He had the best numbers this year.

    He sat as a true freshman too, so if he sits an NFL year, it will be one season + one game played out of four seasons. The plus side with Lance is you hear nothing but A+ evaluations of his off-field, his whiteboard acumen, his understanding of the game, etc. NDSU runs a complex offense with...

    If you move on from Ryan next offseason, you eat $40 MM against the 2022 cap, but then you're free and clear for 2023. So you sit your rookie QB this year, you've got next year where you're still eating leftover cap issues, and then you've got three years of cost control rookie with no Ryan...
