NFL 2019: Draft

Jon Gruden, yet again trying more than anything to prove how much smarter than everybody else he is.

Mayock is officially not the GM, he's the Scouting director. Gruden is GM.

Ser-pen-tine!

Ferrell #4? Really, Mayock?

I was right. CHAOS!

Also: MMD's back. MORE CHAOS, especially now that the Bucs are on the clock.

Huh. I wonder if Kacey Reynolds is now on the Raiders' draft board.

Tampa stays on script. Replacing Kwon with Devin White.

Lavonte David has gotta be happy.

"Oh, hey, there's a potentially great defensive lineman/pass rusher available for a team that has had a garbage defensive line for years. What should we do?"

"DRAFT A MIDDLE LINEBACKER AT #5."

It's like passing on Derwin James last year. Sometimes, guys, just take the best player available?

Giants got rid of Olivier Vernon and now they have a gift sitting there for them in Josh Allen if they take it.

So . . . Blaine f*cking Gabbert?

@#$!! Josh Freeman.

So, yeah, it's draft night? I took a year off from football. Like, a year. The only game I watched every play of was the Super Bowl, which was such a great choice. Really. The other day I was thinking about the Patriots having won it and it literally took me a solid 15-20 seconds to remember who they beat.

So . . . Cleveland actually looks interesting, the Giants are the new tire fire, Josh Rosen is apparently Kryptonite, and Bruce Arians couldn't get enough of tall, strong-armed serial rapists in Pittsburgh so he moved to more southerly regions?

Am watching the draft because a friend and I have been watching it together for 25 years, so tradition. Wearing my first football-related T-shirt in a good 10 months, about to throw on the traditional Derrick Brooks jersey and figure out some way Tampa trades Winston to the Raiders and uses that pick to get Josh Rosen because serial rapists can eat dicks.

This Nick Bosa kid is apparently a big fan of white supremacists, but, hey, he stands for the anthem.

Also, Blaine f*cking Gabbert?

+1

LOL

....

LOL

Gettleman is a joke.

Dave Gettleman trying to get hisself fired.

Oh man Josh Allen is on the board at #7.

Jags need to help Foles badly, but Allen might be too good to pass up.

More teams f*cking up please.

Also hurry the f*ck up

Daniel Jones is a dream of a quarterback prospect for the
old ways of thinking about the position—which means
that a healthy percentage of the NFL’s ownership will find
him appealing based on his resume bullet points:

 A private school education from an academically
competitive program.
 Coached by David Cutcliffe, who worked with the
Mannings (and a bunch of other quarterbacks
who haven’t made it in the NFL, but that’s
beside the point).
 Preferred physical prototypes for height and
weight.

None of this is Jones’ fault and if it means if the NFL
gives him a first-round contract and an opportunity to
start, that’s a great thing for him. I hope he succeeds
even though I don’t think he’s remotely a starter-grade
prospect.

He flashes starter-grade skills just enough that those
without as rigorous of a viewing process will value
moments of his portfolio more than I do. Of course, my
process might prove too rigorous and those moments are
indicative of what he’s likely to do rather than a more
remote possibility.

If a quarterback was a suit, Jones would have the
desirable brand name, cut, and design, but suffer from
shoddy craftsmanship that would require a tailor to
address. Pull the wrong thread and the arm and the
buttons detach from the rest of the garment. While most
of the imperfections are manageable, there are a lot of
loose threads where brushing the cuff against a doorknob
or pulling the jacket on too quickly might create an
embarrassing wardrobe malfunction.

Yup. Jags had to take Allen. That's a steal at that price.

Bet the Lions are pissed they ended up that close.

They should've offered a nice trade up package.

No trades in this top 10 so far.

Kudos to all the Giants fans shouting "We're #1" for already recognizing where their team will be picking next year.

Still the worst (non)pick last year. So dumb.

Told you Hockenson was legitimately a consideration at #7. He went #8.

Did what's-his-name on ESPN just say he's in Jacksonville?

Can't believe the Lions are the only team in the past 753 years to have taken a TE in the top ten. Done it twice now!

It's Kittle's fault.

Weird thing is that I don't feel like his value is as high in that offense as it would be in Jacksonville's.

Buffalo has all the offensive linemen in the draft to choose from to protect the lesser Josh Allen.

True dat. I swear there's something wrong with Stafford not throwing to TEs, but maybe it was a Jim Bob Cooter.

Foles loves himself some tight ends.
