bad news twinblaze

the jets traded up to pick 3 which should indicate that the draft will start with three quarterback picks

guessing the browns will trade down from 4 (probably with the bills, could see a surprise move by the ravens/bengals though because they have low-ceiling qbs) so i don't see mayfield making it to 5

Not conviced the browns will trade down from 4, since with this trade they can probably count on barkley falling to them there, letting them take the qb they want at 1. That said, unless a team in the top 3 really likes allen he'll probably be the last one available at 5, and I'd rather trade down or take Nelson in that situation.

But given Elway's history, we'll probably take allen and he'll bust just like osweiler and lynch.

the browns could easily trade down to 6 and probably still get barkley in that scenario (although chubb is the better pick, there is virtually no such thing as too many pass rushers and those have much more value than running backs)

depends on how far mason rudolph drops down, really (lamar jackson does not seem like someone elway would pick)

The Broncos have a right tackle who's not complete and utter trash and I'm so excited.

I never knew trading for a fairly average lineman would have me so enthusiastic, but here we are.

looking forward to thursday, in which the browns get to screw up top-5 picks twice because they are the browns

(the colts will probably screw up with them, to be fair)

Well, the Broncos did not draft Josh Allen. Thank God.

the giants screwed up big time though, barkley is not worth the 2nd pick (with that pick, you are basically paying them to be the best rb in the league due to the salary for the draft slot, so anything below perennial pro bowl player is a big problem)

it is probably a false positive encouraged by other overdrafts such as ezekiel elliott and lenoard fournette

lamar jackson going to the ravens with the last pick of the round is interesting, because flacco has not been all that great and low-ceiling qbs generally do not get the job done

I agree with most of this, save two things. I would not describe CJ Anderson's last two years as "ordinary". His numbers have been pretty average but that's behind a well below average line, and while it's not the most important skill for a running back, he's literally the best back in the league in pass protection. Also, the list of bad first round picks should not include Garrett Bolles. While Ramczyk would have been the better option, Bolles has pretty much matched expectations. Putting Shane Ray on that list is also questionable, but I'll concede that a good rotational player is not generally what you want out of the first round.

I don't think he's incompetent. He's below average. There are plenty of worse GMs in the league.
