  1. Welcome. No. There is nothing you could offer. Maybe 10 number one picks? Even then, no.
  2. Alexander got flamed for that crap back in January, I am guessing it got resurrected now because people remain bored.
  3. No chance. Zero. Latest Hobs with ZT continues to show no chance. If there was ANY lean that way he would be signaling it in his columns. Basically latest column said they are spending max allowable of three hours a week with him on zoom - my guess is he already has the offense... here’s that Hobson piece and two excerpts from it on point: https://www.bengals.com/news/zac-adjusting-to-first-draft-of-the-zooming-20s
  4. Cards on the table, I just went and looked at a bunch of my saved TDN drafts and here is the range of players I have considered or taken the most often in rounds 2 - 4. Post FA spending spree, I sorted out CBs, S, and IDL from my considerations - after they spent $135 million to shore up those positions I am hoping they are looking WR, OL, and LB in rounds 2-4 in some order. I would be super grumpy over a TE in those rounds. BPA, but targeted BPA given the areas of need remaining would be my hope. Note, some set of the players I have listed below are unavailable in each given simulation, but sometimes are available - enough that I get to choose from them every so often. Assuming no massive falling from the top 20 players, here is who I am looking at usually for pick 33: WRs - Mims, Reagor, Higgins ( note - J. Jefferson almost never makes it to 33 on the mocks I do, and I don't really want Shenault) LBs - Queen, Baun, Murray (altho I admit to being not as high on Murray as some of the experts are and often pass on him for other positions) OL - Ruiz, Cleveland, Josh Jones (I REALLY don't like Austin Jackson based on some of what I have read and Niang is probably a reach here - Jones doesn't fall to 33 a ton, but just enough that I hold out hope that he's there for them to consider at start of day 2) That's my big board of preferred players for top of round 2 - unless something crazy happens with one of the top WR or OT falling from top 20. At top of round 3 I am usually choosing from amongst this crew in the mocks I do on TDN and Fan Speak: WR: Aiyuk, Peoples-Jones, Pittman Jr. Claypool (Aiyuk could go as high as round 1 or as low as 3 - I would prefer him here - I am not as high on Peoples- Jones and Claypool as others arebut this is where they likely would have to be taken if not already gone) LB: M. Harrison, W. Gay Jr., J. Brooks, ADG (not a one of these four seems to be sliding to round 4 now, so if you want one of this group, this is the spot) OL: Isaiah Wilson, Prince Wonogho, R. Hunt, N. Muti, Josh Jackson, D. Lewis, L. Niang, L. Cushenberry (there's a lot of variability here in the mocks, but some combo of the names on this list will be there in 3 but most often only one or none slips to top of 4 - and any of this crew immediately decidedly upgrades the OL) And the players generally available around top of round 4 that I like (this got harder when those damn comp picks were assigned and we slipped to pick 107: WR: Van Jefferson, D. Duverney (often Duverney slips to round 5 in my mocks but I think come draft that is unlikely) LB: Logan Wilson, T. Dye (MAYBE on each of these guys- very possible to get here and both have already been taken - I would kill for Dye at top of 4 but that is only every so often) OL: S. Lemieux, S. Kindley, B. Bredesen, J. Simpson, L. Stenberg, B. Bartch (these are all IOL except for Bartch and Bartch may play best there in the NFL) My general conclusions/working theories from six weeks of running mocks: If you want an OT to challenge to play this year, has to come from a selection in rounds 2 or 3. IOL is deep enough that you can find someone at top of four (and RARELY 5) who might be able to challenge to start. As deep as WR is, the true difference making depth at the top of the WR class are gone by middle of round 3 in almost every mock unless you are higher on Van Jefferson than I am. I think he and Duverney could immediately help, but I have them a good tier below the crew I have listed in rounds 2 and 3. LB is deeper than we thought back in January (at least deeper than I thought) , but still no guarantee that there will be someone there in round 4 that we can count on day 1.
  5. Goodberry says he can start inside even at his size and eventually move outside if he isn’t ready for starting outside now.
  6. He can also(and does) get rid of the ball quicker if need be. And the o-line here will have plays where he can go through all his progressions. At least he knows how to do that. Andy never seemed to get beyond read two before panicking and bailing on the play.
  7. Had missed this column a few weeks ago on The Athletic (which is free for a few months - I cannot recommend it higher to you all) - a "what the scouts are saying" piece: https://theathletic.com/1665631/2020/03/17/mcginn-scouts-size-up-their-top-prospects-on-offense/
  8. Not only do I think the lions and bengals staffs have a leg up during the draft and evaluation process due to having been the senior bowl coaching staffs under the Covid social distancing regime, but I also think the bengals and lions will be uniquely positioned to do VERY well in the UDFA scrum as they will immediately be familiar with some of the undrafted players they saw at the senior bowl but those players and their agents may want to be with coaches that have already spent time with them...
  9. lol on trading back. I am betting on this kid - watch the Orlovsky video - think about what we’ve had in dalton and what we will have in Burrow in terms of pressure and “hidden yards”. I am not trading for anything...
  10. My mock to start the week, this will work and would make me delighted: 1. Joe Burrow QB, 33. Jalen Reagor WR, 65. Isaiah Wilson OT, 107. Logan Stenberg IOL, 147. Davion Taylor LB, 180. Logan Wilson LB, 215.Isaiah Coulter. WR,
  11. “For those who turn to @PFF for guidance. They were big Josh Bynes fans. Graded him between 70-80 each of the last three years with Arizona and Baltimore. For reference, highest graded LB with at least 100 snaps for #Bengals last year was Nick Vigil at 54.4.” —Paul Dehner Jr
