He's a football player, not running for IS president.  

FTFY

DB's take as long as 4 years to "get it" sometimes.

I think we'll have a real good idea about Jaire at the end of the 2019 season.

Just stay healthy & play!

Guys I like that are left on the board

  • Josh Jackson
  • DJ Chark
  • Courtland Sutton
  • Isaiah Oliver
  • Will Hernandez
  • Ronnie Harrison

listening to local Bucs talk radio there was not anyone that sounded all excited about the possibility of taking James for the Bucs. They were saying he was a great athlete but rarely did enough on the field to make a difference. Any many of the callers were FSU alum. So whether James or Edumunds are all that is as much in debate as whether or not Alexander is all that. I have no idea how these guys are going to translate to pro ball but hoping Alexander is better than Rollins or  the already out of here Randall.

People losing their shiit over the loss of James or Edmonds need to relax.  Just like Alexander, they are nothing more than prospects right now.

Any comparisons of Alexander and Carroll are ridiculous.  

This. That.

Problem is they are probably all gone by #45.  The question is will Glutes package some chum to move up in RD2 or climb back into RD3?  If he gets back into RD3 I hope it's the top half because he already has the first pick in RD4.

I'd actually trust the super homers of Florida college football.  I think it's pretty safe that Alexander will be a better fit than Randall and definitely better than Rollins.  Both tweener projects.

****ing Herschel is horrible.  Makes threads unreadable. 

Shut the **** up and try not to ruin the 2nd round discussion .

Walshart drive by.

I'm hoping the Saints trade was truly some future planning on Goof's part.  2 #1's is a lot of ammo.  

I think it was Gute taking advantage of a team that is all-in this year. The Saints pick at worst is #32. However, the Saints pick is one injury away from being a top 10-12 pick and that injury risk is a 39 year old QB.

Possibly all gone by #45 - We'll see

Nobody expected Landry still on the board....or Josh Jackson. Lotta draft left yet.

Reading back through older articles & finding out things here in Dallas - Seems Packers were really, REALLY trying to trade up & get Minkah. When that didn't work, they traded down & "settled" for Jaire while picking up more draft capital.

Dolphins probably wanted the moon to move up 3 spots - good for Gutey standing his ground on value.

Although I don't see why Pack couldn't have worked with Oakland who DID trade down with the Cardinals - Don't see why the Packers couldn't beat this deal if they really wanted Minkah that bad

Gute was asked about 2019 prospects with respect to the trade. He gave a non answer like Ted would, only difference is Gute was smiling when he answered. And was awake. 

Does he look for a QB heir in 2019?

Million dollar idea.  Packers backfield nick name.  Ministry of Silly Walks.

Of course they'd be penalized into a 0-16 record. 

The Offense better be reading this.  Now that's an EZ celebration.

I don’t know. Cleese has some length.

Great! Now Jaymo's going to infest another thread!

That's exactly what I was thinking.  AZ didn't pay too much to move up.  Seems like Packers could have easily made a similar move.

But after seeing how everything worked out, I'm glad it didn't happen.  Time will tell, but based upon what I've read, there is a very good chance that Alexander ends up being as good, if not better, than Minkah.  So I'm happy with Alexander and a future 1st.  

Griffen is interesting. I'd guess top of 5th, but hobbits seem to be in fashion this year and it only takes one GM. The hand aside, he's awfully small for a linebacker. He's probably a Joe Thomas-type in the dime, and special teams. Hand work is so important in the pros and length can be too. 

If a team sees him as the nickel guy also, he could see the third round

The top QB was the shortest, the top 3 corners were all small, as is Kolton Miller (lean vs. short) and neither receiver has great size.

Roquon Smith is also lacks desired size.

Perhaps the death of Verne Troyer this week has given the Pack a soft spot for midgets?

Ok, bad joke.  Truth be told, I really don't care how big or small guys are as long as they can play.  Being 5'8" 167 lbs. myself I personally have some love for the vertically and horizontally challenged individuals of the NFL.
