NFL Draft Thread 2015

I may be a minority on this, but the league really screwed up going to three days. Its way too anticlimatic. Its like they hired Vince to do it. "you know what? There's not enough entertainment with our sports!" Its really going on everywhere, but entertainment and sports should NEVER meet. No one does it well, including Vince and his committee of braying jackasses and especially not legit sports leagues. Don't try to be hip, or cool, or whatever the kids are calling it nowadays, just give me the damn event. . . . And get off my lawn(yeah I know how I sound)

So the Jets learned nothing from the last spread QB they drafted.

 

As much as I wanted Geno to succeed being a Mountaineer fan, I think Bryce Petty is much more seasoned as a QB to be labeled as just a "spread QB" .  Definitely has a more accurate arm and that is something Geno isn't close to having so far

I get why they did it, with the first round being ridiculously long.  But the draft was more fun when it was a two-day event.  Three days is too much, and having one of those days being a late Friday makes little sense to me.

Name one running back that was in his prime at 35.

You got me there. I fudged on that a little. I still believe they could get enough out of Peterson to overlap how much longer the core of Romo/Dez is going to be together.

Nah. It would come at the expense of spending money at another position. It's unnecessary. They have one of the best lines in football and a guy that ran for like five yards a carry last year already on the team. I hate to say it but there's really nothing special about Demarco. He was hard to bring down. Outside of that... They'll be fine leaving Peterson alone.

I'm with you on DeMarco and the idea that they can by fine with some three-headed monster type deal like they did with Barbarian/Felix/Choice. Like I said earlier though about Randle that 5.0 YPC will go away once he's christened lead back; Felix bloody Jones averaged 8.9 and 5.9 YPC his first two seasons in the same role as Randle.

 

 

Brett Hundley is more Aaron Brooks then Matt Hasselbeck.

 

Yeah, but they still flipped that jabronie for a 3rd-rounder. If Hundley plays pretty in a few preseason games, the Packers can probably get a similar pick for him a few seasons from now as what they got for Brooks. Hundley's just a commodity the same way players always are when the Packers draft QB's they don't or won't need anytime soon.

I'm hoping we turn Hundley into a draft pick in a few years because I don't want him to be our future starting QB.

 

I assume that's the plan, the whole Patriots thing where you convince other teams your backup is worth a damn because of the system and who he plays behind. My guess is that the real future starter gets drafted in 2 or 3 years.

Or we Clone Aaron Rodgers and Aaron Rodgers Mark 2.0 is our future QB.
