Mock Drafts / Re: football dad 1st mock
« Last post by footballdad on January 13, 2019, 08:43:31 AM »
Actually as far as free agent FS goes, would be just as happy with Boston or Phillips.
Trading up to # 4, I think you get Allen or Ferrell. Would be happy with either one. If Saints lose and we pick 30, trade chart works for the Raiders #4 and 7th for #12 and #30.
Could Gruden resist 4 1st round picks?
Also as far as the 2nd round pick goes, would be just as happy with Lindstrom from B.C.
Thanks guys.

Home team has held serve so far this weekend.

That favors the Saints today, but I'm pulling for Rivers to be the "fly in the soup" for NE.

Would like to see Rivers get a shot at a SB. He's been a warrior for a long time.

It seems that between Hackett, Monken, and DeFillipo that ML should find himself an inventive mind to help built the game plans that he can execute as HC/play caller.

Things seem to be moving in positive directions.

No rush....................make good hiring choices.

My father always told me, "measure twice, cut once".

I like this plan. You're probably right that all the top pass rushers in FA will get tagged. I would also like a trade-up to get Allen... but I think we'd also have to throw in our 2nd to maybe get to the third pick, as I don't think he makes it past there(if he doesn't go first or second pick). Impact EDGE rushers have never been at a higher premium and if we can get a guy who could be even better potentially than Khalil Mack-- we need to take a shot at that. I'm not as impressed by the TE draft class this year as some others. I'd rather bring back Marcedes Lewis and use him correctly, cut ties with Graham and maybe bring in Jesse James than use a high draft pick. I'd rather use our draft capital to upgrade our pass rush, O and D lines and maybe get an explosive receiving tailback to pair with Aaron Jones. I like your FA plan, but I believe we'd have to seriously overpay to get Collins away from New York, as they'll most likely slap him with the transition tag(if not the franchise). I wanted to draft Golden Tate and would love to see him in the slot for GB. Overall, a nice effort. Kudos!

Well played Uncle Josh and also some great ideas by FBD. I might have a couple different names to throw in a couple spots, but give credit where it's due.

Nice FA/Draft plan and a nice critique.

Dorrell will probably become the WR coach according to reports.  It is going to be interesting to see if Campen leaves.  It sounds like the front office is ok with letting all of MM's guys walk away.  I do see the idea behind that and wanting all remnants of the previous staff gone.  But, finding good OL coaches isn't all that easy and Campan has had some success and I would think is popular with the players. 

I go back to wondering about DeFillipo for the OC job.  As others have pointed out, he is still a pretty darn good coach and didn't all of a sudden become a bozo that doesn't know what he is doing.  He is not going to get another job calling plays soon, so coming into Green Bay and working with LaFleur and rebuilding his reputation seems like a logical thing to do.  Be the OC/QB coach and if the Packers turn it around and become a factor again on offense, he is back in the conversations for becoming a head coach.

Assuming all needs cannot be filled and be an instant superbowl threat in year one. Year two, yes.

Free agent signings:
No pass rushers.....all tagged most likely.

Baushaud Breeland - CB
Landon Collins - S
Muhammed Wilkerson - DT
Golden Tate - WR

1 - #12 - Devin White ILB - LSU
1 - #30 - Montez Sweat - Edge - Mississippi State ( yeah, think Rams beat Saints )
2 - #44 - Dalton Risner - G/T - Kansas State
3 - #76 - T.J. Hockenson - TE - Iowa
4 - #107 - Shareef Miller - Edge - Penn State
4 - #111 - Max Scharping - T - Northern Illinois
5 - #139 - Devin Bush - ILB - Michigan
6 - #171 - Hunter Renfrow - SWR - Clemson
6 - #179 - Jonathan Ledbetter - DT - Georgia
7 - #202 - Jonathan Abram - S - Mississippi State

or trade #12 and #30 and move up to #4 and get Josh Allen or Clelin Ferrell.

It's also startling to see that there are now several qbs playing at or even above Aarons level.  The NFL seems to be on track to solving the shortage of qbs.

It's really startling how much more speed the playoff teams have compared to the Packers
