So, how many "Gold Jackets" in this year's draft ?

Manny in CA : 1/16/2020 6:25 pm

Picking in the top-five, not an unreasonable expectation.

I only see three ...

That could reach that level (game breakers) ...

Burrow - Because he's a true franchise QB

Young - Because he's the next JJ Watt

Jeudy - Because he's the next OBJ (without rocks for brains)

If we have a shot at any of those three at #4, no-way can we pass
You all canít ďseeĒ them yet

No one can, until they play live NFL games...

Even God himself has to just let things happen and let his hand go from some players...
Guys like DG ...

Make those calls. He envisioned Saquon Barkley being that kind of player "touched by the hand of God". so-far, so-good.

Nobody really knows - Bosworth, Ki-Jana Carter, Tim Couch, Ja Marcus Russell, all 1st overall busts.

All we can go by is production that we've seen from them and the high profile positions that the guys this year play - QB, Edge, Receiver.

So far so good with Barkley? Huh? One great year one meh year. If thats what touched by the hand of God looks like, yikes.

If anyone cares.

Can we stop using Gettleman's terminology until after he puts together a worthwhile team? "Hog Mollies" and "Gold Jackets" players. Really. Just call them linemen and blue chip guys.

Leading up to the draft it's going to be who is Gettlemen "in full bloom love" with or is this player "touched by the hand of God". I wonder if Gettleman will go to the Senior Bowl and identify our first round draft pick by watching three plays of the guy during the game. That would be fun.

To me, there are several blue chip players that could help us in this draft - aside of the QBs. I think we will be in great position to move down and get a nice haul of picks so long as Herbert doesn't shit himself at the Senior Bowl. You know Burrow is going 1st. I think teams are going to want to move to the top 3/4 to get Herbert and Tua. Hopefully our GM picks up the phone and listens to potential trade down scenarios.

As for the blue chippers, I think they are Chase Young, Okudah, and Jerry Jeudy. I'm not sure if Simmons is one, but he is potentially in the discussion there as well.
I've never seen anybody come back from a high ankle sprain ...  
Manny in CA : 1/16/2020 10:40 pm : link

The way he did. When he did get back, he faced 8 man lines all day.

Change the scheme, get him decent blocking. He's not a "meh"
I believe in trading down, yes ....  
Manny in CA : 1/16/2020 10:50 pm : link

But if you're picking in the top 5, you trade only if they give you "the title to the farm"

Generally, that doesn't happen, so you "hold your water".
If there is going to be a Hall of Famer...  
bw in dc : 1/16/2020 11:35 pm : link
from this class you have to say it's coming from the WR group. This is the richest pool of receivers in maybe decades. So I'm guessing there is at least one or two there...
