    If Keim takes a WR in Day 1 or Day 2, it’s a giant indictment on his ability to draft, maybe even more so than his first-round blunders. Imagine drafting three WRs in the draft the previous year, one of which in the 2nd round, trading for a Top-5 WR in the current offseason, and then feeling compelled to take another WR early in the draft. What does that say about Keim and the scouts? What does that say about Kyler? If Kyler is to be the transcendent player that he was hyped to be, he shouldn’t need a WR room full of high-priced, highly drafted players.

    I sense this is the direction that the team is going, but once again, it’s Keim chasing bad bets and potentially the tail wagging the dog

    The source is mentioned - Benjamin Allbright. He's semi-reliable.

    the draft is a giant crap shoot.

    a guy will list 5 guys he likes going into the draft well guess what, 3 of those guys are probably going to suck

    Yeah not sure if he's reliable or not which is why I opted to just go with rumors instead of quoting a specific source.

    The first two sentences are from Allbright and the third are just rumors circulating on twitter from a couple of people.

    I really do not care who the hell we select as long as it's not one of those potential 'selections'. I like Becton but it also has the Al Davis approach of physical attributes overriding the play of the other OTs. I do not think Simmons is just a physical freak because his actual play is strong... then you have a guy like Jeudy who is not a specimen athletically but still has pro physical traits while still having superb technique

    When in doubt forget about the combine. Why did Andrew Thomas drop?

    Luck was destroyed but was great and singlehandledly brougth the Colts in the AFC Championship
    Newton was destroyed but was even a league MVP, lost the SB and went another time to the NFC Championship
    Goff was in the SB lost isn't great but servicable
    Bradford was destroyed before he could do anything
    Winston overdrafted
    Mayfield and Murray to early to judge

    If you ask me, that isn't that bad compared to the other bad QB out there.

    fwiw:

    this year's OT class reminds me of the 2017 draft for CBs

    Marshon Lattimore
    Marlon Humphrey
    Tradavious White
    Adoree Jackson


    depending on who you read, the pre draft ranking of the four varied -- some had Lattimore the best, others Humphrey, others White. Jackson was never #1, but sometimes the #2 guy in the group.

    three years later:

    the last guy taken -- Tradavious White might be the best one. the first -- Lattimore -- is the best if it isn't White. Humphrey is a good player, while Jackson is..... ok.

    my totally speculative guess is that the four OTs are similar

    :eek:

    Did not see that coming. Wow. A lot less likely we go OT at 8, I've gotta think.

    This is a smart gamble but also tips our hat to taking a defensive guy or a WR. I am not going to fault this team if they take a WR, because drafting Fitzgerald when we had Boldin turned out to our advantage but I do want a guard with our second pick because that's a good place to take one of the better interior guys

    the phrase "up to" does a lot work here for Drew Rosenhaus
