You know their numbers are BS when 98.1 is only good enough for 18th.   WTF does that number even mean?  Percent?  Temperature?  ABV?

 

Using a decimal point does not make it a real stat.

You know I'm just mad I didn't think to rip off Football Outsiders formatting and get paid on the basis of owning a website & flooding social media with my made-up numbers.  It's impressive how far they've gotten by pandering to fan's confirmation bias.  

 

Another good way to tell that analysis is bullshit is when it never surprises you or contradicts your expectations.

Pass

Is the linebacker worthy of a 6th round pick?  We usually have 4 or 5.

Rangy safety Jalen Thompson and speedy receiver Marcus Simms headline this year’s class, but do they provide enough value for Cincinnati?

By John Sheeran@John__Sheeran  Jul 10, 2019, 7:00am EDT
 

Of the 45 players ever selected in the NFL Supplemental Draft since 1977, only one was picked by the Bengals. 

Ahmad Brooks only played two seasons in Cincinnati, but he eventually became the seventh pro bowler taken in the Supplemental Draft once he established himself with the San Francisco 49ers.

The Bengals have steered clear of the NFL’s “second” draft since 2006 when they drafted Brooks with their third-round pick, and for good reason. Aside from the occasional flashes of Josh Gordon and for a brief period, Terrelle Pryor, investing actual draft capital (picks that matter before the fifth round) in the Supplemental Draft hasn’t been exactly a wise strategy. 

Nevertheless, today will likely be the first time the a player will be drafted in consecutive years since Gordon was the lone pick in 2012. For a refresher, the process for teams to draft a player goes like this:

  • The league is divvied up into three groups: teams with six or less wins (the Bengals’ group), non-playoff teams with more than six wins, and the 12 playoff teams. These make up groups 1, 2 and 3, respectively. By the way, teams bid next year’s draft picks by the round for the players, and teams in the first group go first.
  • A lottery decides the order of the teams in each group. This order determines which team gets priority if multiple team offers the same bid for a player; the team higher in the order is awarded the player if that bid remains the highest offered.
  • If a player receives no bid, he becomes a free agent. 

The players who enter the Supplemental Draft are players who were eligible to enter the NFL Draft but did not. Usually the players had their eligibility forfeited after the deadline to declare for the regular draft has passed. There are five players that will be eligible for teams to draft:

  • Jalen Thompson, safety, Washington State
  • Marcus Simms, wide receiver, West Virginia
  • Shyheim Cullen, linebacker, Syracuse
  • Devonaire Clarington, tight end, NorthlandBryant Perry, cornerback, St. Francis
  • Bryant Perry, cornerback, St. Francis

The trio of Cullen, Clarington and Perry aren’t likely to be drafted. Thompson and Simms are a different story.

 

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Pick up as a free agent for a look-see.  The Bengals are always looking for possible special teams fodder.

Thompson was picked in the 5th round by the Cardinals. The others were undrafted. Simms is said to be signing with Jacksonville.

Marvin Jones was on IR his third season and had exactly 0 receiving yards. He was also the 155th pick in round 5.

WTF is going on with that graphic?  It looks they tried to make it a football texture but it's not consistent so it looks like scraps of iguana hide.  I guess this is what happens when your entire staff are related & the designer is some nephew whose previous experience was his school yearbook class.. in which he received a B minus.

 

Sorry but that's just ugly.
