Dallas took Mazi.
I’ll be surprised if they don’t take Porter here. Fell into their lap.
Welcome Broderick, now go get em. Play nasty and mean.
Yeah, I realized that I was meaning 'working to trade up for Mazi' but my fingers didn't think same...
Yes, CB is next on the list.
A few riffs...
Porter is a nice fit here.
My biggest surprise was Will Levis not going to the Colts. Richardson's accuracy bothers me.
But in retrospect, in all honesty, I think I see the Carson Wentz comparison.
I thought Buffalo would have went Mayer but went with Kincaid. I think they were looking for a 2nd TE option and they got it. Just one of those picks where they went a different direction than I figured they would go.
I wonder if Ojulari is on the radar at 49? (I kind of like the Bama LB also To'o To'o)
Later rounds, if they were trying to trade up for Mazi, maybe that Kentucky NT, Martin, might be on the board. I think Benton will be gone.
There's a few WR's, I don't have a favorite as I would prefer, they stay along the line of scrimmage.
Porter is really the only guy left on my draft sheet. I've heard some whispers of Ringo.. I just like Porter.
Plus he got Gonzales, a hell of a pickup.
IMO, Johnson is clearly the best OT coming out of college. Jones is probably next. Maybe character concerns dropped him down, but haven't seen anything concrete about that. Skoronski is a bit overrated to me and probably will better fit in the NFL at G. Wright is going to be good. He has the size, strength, and quickness plus he is a high character guy and good teammate. Saw that during his time here in Knoxville. I would have been happy with any of the 4. Wright was more of a sentimental homer pick for me but I'm happy with the BJ pick.
Same here. I had it Wright, Jones, Johnson, Skoronski. But all very close.
We’ve always had answers for their WRs. TE - not the case…
Trade down and get back the 4th. A perfect pick to solidify the left side. Very happy Khan traded up and got him.
I thought Wright has the size, strength, experience and natural density. Hence why I tanked him 1.
Johnson has the leadership, high character, great head on his shoulder and perfect length. But is a bit stiff and plays Tackle like a Guard.
Jones has the best athletism, quickness, and explosiveness, and I believe has the highest ceiling.
Skoronski is technically the most proficient. And moves beautifully from one assignment to the next. But lacks NFL power and apparently has short Arms (according measurements.) I saw no serious disadvantage on tape from having shorter arms. But I'm not an expert.
If I had an option for all 4 I'd have taken Johnson because he played LT and is an exceptional young man. Everyone says it.
But I think Wright and Jones are potentially better players.
I think they will be shopping for more than a fourth? Would be interested
in seeing their big board.
he was my pick. he was THE pick there.
nice work Kahn, sure GLAD Colbert is gone, or Porter would have been drafted.
I'd take BRANCH right here, RIGHT NOW, unless we get GREAT VALUE is this or rd 3 with another pick plus a sway. Need secondary help BAD + DLINE
well, he wasn't your guy.....at 17, or 14, for that matter....
we have been dominated at the LOS for too long now, this was clearly the right move - I am not sure Tomlin understands this, but KHAN does.
I am not sure about that.
Possibly but we only had to give the cheats a 4th to move up in the 1st to grab Jones. Also depends how far we go down giving up the 2nd which rumor is the Lions at 34.
How is that little fella gonna block When Lamar scrambles?
well if it was bush he would run to him and stand there and let him.
Im thinking the trade back, if it happens, is only a couple spots where they feel they can still pick up Porter.
Package the trade back with Dotson and or the 7th round picks. If possible and pick up a 3rd (fantastic!) or a 4th (very acceptable).
If all we did was pick players in the first two days and then hit the undrafted market hard, I would be over the moon.
That would make Kahn a world champion chess player.
Or maybe Colbert didn’t understand and this new regime has the formula.
An injury prone has been and another undersized 1st rounder. I’m not worried. I say bring it
the Ravens suck, Lamar could not throw to Lynn Swann if he had him!
well, whatever - the GAME had passed him by.....about 8 years ago, and we have suffered for it
Steelers did good.
