    They are, but even as the favorites, you're still only talking about roughly 20% odds to win it. In all likelihood, someone else will win. I agree that stopping Zion is a fool's errand.

    I like both Tennessee and Virginia personally. I think whoever comes out of that region has a pretty good chance and I think Duke's lack of shooting will eventually haunt them in one of these games. Just my gut feeling though; obviously Zion is an absolute freak of nature so it wouldn't be surprising if they win it.

    Him, Weber, the WRs, there's a lot of options really

    Rotoworld: Bills draft needs & 7 round mock

    They almost certainly won't draft 10 players like they currently are slotted to do. Whether that means trading up throughout the draft or trading picks for future picks, I would bet they only draft 7 or 8 guys at the absolute most, much to my chagrin.

    Rotoworld: Bills draft needs & 7 round mock

    Wow, those first 4 picks are more or less all of the guys that I've been hoping for. It's like they read my mind for this. The back half of the draft didn't really do anything for me though.

    It'll survive and I'm sure in the very least, the Honky Tonk Highway will remain mostly the same, but after visiting a month or two ago, I'll be fascinated to see how different it is in like 5 years. Just being there for my first time one of the first things I noticed was that it felt like it was about to go through some major major development. The surrounding pockets of Nashville will be almost unrecognizable in 5-10 years IMO.
  7. It would have made more sense if McCoy wasn't in the plans IMO. Gore was legitimately good last year; McCoy was bad and Ivory maybe slightly better. But adding yet another veteran RB contract to a position group that's already among the most expensive in the league while still being a below-average unit is pretty disappointing. If the Bills cut McCoy and Ivory and went into the year with Gore and one or two rookies, I'd be much happier with the position group than I am with its current construction. Is this saying that Beane is good or bad? I have no idea what this means outside of knowing it's a Game of Thrones reference.

    Basically identical height/weight/40 time to Kareem Hunt and slightly different from Sony Michel. Difference being his broad jump was pretty disappointing too. Might be enough for Darrell Henderson to move up to #1.

    Full Intelligent Breakdown of DK Metcalf

    Sure but you could say that about literally any prospect besides maybe Quinnen Williams. If Hockenson is only a decent starter, then by your standards, he’s a colossal waste. If a pass rusher turns into a 3rd down specialist, he’s a colossal waste. If an offensive linemen turns into a swing tackle, he’s a colossal waste. Drafting a guy whose range, imo, is between a solid starter and an elite WR is about as high floor and high ceiling of a prospect you’ll find.

    To be fair regarding Harmon, that drop % is based on deep balls, in which the sample size is pretty small. We're talking about 13 total receptions on deep balls, so adding or subtracting one more drop is like a 7-8% swing in either direction. His drop rate in general is 4.7%, which is actually pretty good.

    I expect that Beane agrees with you and will trade up somewhere to consolidate picks a bit. I personally feel the opposite. There’s so much uncertainty in the draft that I’d rather just accumulate more picks to have more chances at success. But yeah, I fully expect Beane to trade up once or twice in this draft. Or if he doesn’t, I expect him to trade picks in this year’s draft for future picks.

    Full Intelligent Breakdown of DK Metcalf

    I think at worst he’s a very good deep ball guy, which makes him a starting caliber player, especially with Allen. To me, that’s a higher floor than most of the rest of this class.

    WR & RB Breakdown via Advanced Metrics

    I personally view Henderson as the #2 or possibly #1 RB prospect in the draft. I love him and if he’s there in the 3rd, it’s a no brainer IMO. I think he’d be an acceptable choice at 40 or possibly a trade down from there if we’re lucky.
  14. Last year, I provided a lot of data regarding the QB class given the obvious need that Buffalo had there. This year, I've continued to do some scouting of the QBs for historical purposes, but have focused more time and effort on the RBs and WRs. I put together a FanPost over on Rumblings to kinda break things down. I did not provide my own conclusions in the OP, instead letting people draw their own conclusions rather than potentially influencing people's opinions with my own, but I'm happy to discuss them throughout this thread/answer any questions that people have about it. Here's the link, hope you enjoy! https://www.buffalorumblings.com/2019/3/19/18272847/wr-amp-rb-prospects-pff-breakdown
  15. I'd be fine with him at 40, but I think someone else will take him before that and I don't really favor him enough to want to move up for him.
