Practice Squad

Practice Squad (3/8)



  1. Out of 135 people 47 were eliminated - 35% 14 had SF, 13 Tenn, 11 Cinci, 4 Rams, 2 Panthers, 1 each Jest, Atl, Pats 5 have Denver tonight
  2. Thank you - That's what it was - I misremembered
  3. I may have misunderstood the number but still he did say Elam was the last player on their board with a 1st round grade. I would guess those two weren't give a 2st round grade. Maybe their were others.
  4. In his press conference Beane said a lot of things you'd expect him to say and didn't say anything at all with his answers to some questions. One thing he said that struck me was they had 21 players with 1st round grades and then added Elam was the last player they had on their board in that group. Well the Bills traded up to 23 to take him so that would mean 2 players (and Breece Hall) taken before him weren't given a 1st round grade by the Bills. Who do you think they were? My guesses at Pickett and Quay Walker
  5. Give me CB Derion Kendrick from UGA - probably a 5th or 6th round selection. If not for some character issues that caused him to be dismissed from Clemson and a slow 40 time of 4.75 he would have been considered one of the top CBs in this draft.
  6. Traded the 25th, 130th (4th round) and next year's 1st and 5th to Washington for the 11th. With the 25th they took QB Sam Howell. They traded the 130th to the Jest who took TE Jelani Woods in exchange for the Jest picks at 146 and 163. The Commanders then took LB Terrel Bernard and RB Pierre Strong
  7. Top CBs and WRs were gone so I traded out of 25 for the 30th and 3rd next year. Then I traded the 30th and 94th for the 32nd and 66th with the Lions. Once again not real happy with who was there and happy with the Jets offer of the 35th and a 2nd next year for the 32nd and 89th. My draft ended up 35th Breece Hall RB Iowa State 57th Tariq Woolen CB UTSA 66th Christian Watson WR North Dakota State 130th Troy Anderson LB Montana State 168th Otito Ogbonnia DT UCLA 185th Max Mitchell OT Louisiana 203 Jalen Wydermyer TE Texas A&M 231 Derion Kendrick CB Georgia Side note - if not for off the field issues and a slow 40 time IMO Kendrick would be considered a top 5 CB in this draft.
  8. Trent McDuffie and Alec Pierce Who's Coby Bryant?
  9. Going by the draft pick value chart that's what it would take. The 1st this year is worth 720pts and the 3rd is worth 145pts. So 865pts. The 1st next year if the make the AFC Championship game and lose is 640pts and the 5th would be 23 pts for a total of 663 pts. Combine the 2 years and you get 1528 pts which worth 28pts more than the 1500 the 7th overall is worth. If Sauce is a good as everyone thinks he is he can start right away. Play zone and help shut down players like Waddle, Hill, Parker and whoever else is added this offseason.
  10. Ok ok - I'm in! Beane offer me 1 year $17 dollars and a bonus of a dollar for each playoff game
  11. Bleacher Report listed their "dream signing" for each team and they apparently think a lot more of Harrison then the people on here who claim he played well in only 6 games during his tenure in Buffalo. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: DL Harrison Phillips John Amis/Associated Press The Tampa Bay Buccaneers sit in an odd position of trying to win now while simultaneously going through a transition period. The defensive front could be hit the hardest this offseason, as Ndamukong Suh, Jason Pierre-Paul, William Gholston and Steve McLendon are all free agents. The team already began to prepare for this moment by drafting Joe Tryon-Shoyinka in the first round last year and extending Vita Vea last season. The group isn't complete, though. Harrison Phillips improved each year he played with the Buffalo Bills, to the point where he became one of the league's better run defenders. He is a highly active defensive tackle who plays with excellent leverage and technique. Phillips may not bring the same qualities as Suh once did, thought the combination of him and Vea would form a brick wall along the interior, allowing linebackers Devin White and Lavonte David to run free. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2954137-every-teams-realistic-dream-signing-in-2022-nfl-free-agency I'd love for the Bills to find a way to keep him in Buffalo BTW - Zimmerman? One splash play and now he's the new shiny object to some. He's not that good - he's depth at best - not a full time starter or even a regular rotational player.
  12. NFL Network - Rapoport/Pelissero are reporting the Panthers and the Bucs are going to pursue Watson
  13. Actually more recently he said he'd like to get the Giants to around $40 million in cap space. Trade Barkley? That saves them more than $7 million. Sterling Shepard released after June 1st saves about $8.5 million? How about trading James Bradberry - That would save them more than $12 million.
  14. This is long but I actually took the time to think out my picks from what was available and tried to reason out each one of them. Is it sexy? No but I think it makes sense and was successful. I didn't like what was there at 25 so I traded back to Tennessee for 26 and their 5th round next year. They took safety Lewis Cine Then Green Bay offered me the 28th and their 3rd next year for the 26th. They took linebacker Devin Lloyd At 28 Seattle rang wanting that pick and the 89th for the 41st, 72nd and their 2nd round pick next year. They took OT Trevor Penning at 28 and running back Jerome Ford at 89. Still not liking how the board was falling when Pitt called for 41 and 245 while offering 52 and 84 I accepted. They took QB Carson Strong at 52 and QB Mike Beaudry with the 84th. At 52 I took Derion Kendrick a 6'0 200lb CB from UGA. He started out at Clemson as a WR and was compared to Sammy Watkins. His sophomore year he switched to CB because of numerous injuries in that room. After a couple of games Clemson made the move permanent and he finished the season 2nd team All-ACC. He was even better his junior year and finished 1st team All-ACC. Then after being suspended from the team he entered the transfer portal which allowed UGA to pick him up. He finished last season 2nd team All-ACC, was the MVP of the Orange Bowl and won his 2nd national Championship. More importantly Smart and Swinney both speak very high of him and Smart went as far to say he was the key player that allowed their defense to excel. He played in the Senior Bowl and did not allow a completion. Next next pick was Phadrian Mathais at 57th. He's a massive 6'4" 312lb DT from Alabama who appeared in 54 games over his 4 years. He was known as a power player who was a great run stuffer with only 1.5 sacks over his first 3 years (40 games). I say "was" because this past season he dropped the QB an amazing 9 times from the DT spot in addition to adding 49 tackles, including 10.5 for a loss, a forced fumble, 2 fumble recoveries and 2 passes deflected . Mathais was also defensive captain this past season. In the 3rd round I traded the 72nd pick and a 5th from next year to move up and get 6'0 200lb CB Kyler Gordon of Washington. He has great athletic ability. Is considered very "football" smart. A willing hitter at the line. Solid in coverage and can play zone or man. He has a high floor and a very high ceiling. If not for Stingley, Booth, McDuffie (his teammate at Washington), Gardner and McCreary teams would be looking his way as a 1st round prospect but his draft is deep at the top of the CB board so he slides. With the 84th selection that I got from Pitt I took OC Alec Lindstrom from Boston College. He finished with the No. 3 pass blocking grade in the country at center (84.6) and allowed just one sack and two quarterback hits last season. He was All-ACC twice and a finalist for the Rimington Trophy which is given to the nation's top center. He finished 2nd to Tyler Linderbaum. He can play guard although center is his natural and best position. With the concussion's Morse has had and it being the last year of his contract drafting an insurance policy for this season and developmental replacement. His brother has been the starting guard for the Falcons over the last 2 years. The next selection I had was 127th and with that I took Alec Pierce a 6'3 210lb WR from Cincinnati. While there a number of great receivers in this draft Pierce may very well have the best hands of them all. In addition he is long armed and his coach said when a 50-50 ball is thrown to him it becomes a 60-40 or 70-30 because of the radius he possesses. He's not just tall and long - he's fast and ran a 4.33 40 plus he showed out not just during the season 884 yards on 52 catches - a 17 average but also at the Senior Bowl where he reportedly had one of the best weeks of practice. I then traded away #167 in the 5th round for #180 and #199 to the Jags who took OG Chasen Hines. At 180 I selected Obinna Eze from TCU. When it comes to tackles Beane likes them big and Eze is huge. He's 6'8 330 with quick feet. At TCU they would have him pull frequently on running plays. While a very good run blocker he still has a lot of work to do mostly because he only played 1 year in high school and while at Memphis he didn't play his first year, in only 5 games his second year and 14 in his last year before transferring to TCU where he started 11 games. In other words he's very raw but has an upside as big as he is and you can't coach size. With pick 185 I took Josh Paschal a 3 year starting DE for Kentucky. He's got decent size at 6'3" 275lbs and has played both on the edge and inside. While not a great pass rusher he was lauded for his play against the run and was named 2nd team All-SEC. He's strong but not overly quick and like most players this late in the draft has to work on his technique. That being said the way the Bills rotate DEs during the game he might have a chance to be more than inactive on game days. The 199th pick that I got from the Jags I picked up Iowa State LB Mike Rose. He's considered one of the best LBs they have ever produced and he has the numbers to go with it including 41 Tkls for loss. He was 1st team All-Big 12 in both 2020 and 2021. Last year in addition to being one of the top tacklers in the nation he had 5 Ints which was the 3rd most of any LB in the country. A quick big hitter with coverage skills and size (6'4" 245lbs) its almost as if he was built to cover TEs. Seeing the Bills lost Fromm and Webb to the Giants at 204 I took Jack Coan from Notre Dame. The QB had a very good season for the Irish completing 66.5% of his passes to go with 25 TDs to 6 Ints. His previous season, in Wisconsin he completed 69.6% of his passes and threw for 18 TDs vs 5 Ints. He played in the Shrine Bowl and was impressive by all accounts. Both in the practices and the game. My last selection was Jake Camarda from Georgia. Yes I took a punter. He's consider one of the best in the nation and I have little confidence in Haack. In his 4 seasons there he averaged nearly 46 yards. Out of 187 punts he put 69 within the 20, 57 were fair caught, 22 downed, only 32 returned and 67 that were longer than 50 yards. Not only was he the SEC Special Teams Player of the Year he had a great Senior Bowl Week (where they found Bass) and in the game he average 51 yards on 6 punts with a long of 58 yards. So to recap I finished with: 52 - Derion Kendrick CB Georgia 57 - Phadarian Mathias DT Alabama 69 - Kyler Gordon CB Washington 84 - Alec Lindstrom OC Boston College 127 - Alec Pierce WR Cincinnati 180 - Obinna Eze OT TCU 185- Josh Paschal DE Kentucky 199 - Mike Rose LB Iowa St 204 - Jack Coan QB Notre Dame 230 - Jake Camarda Punter Georgia In 2023 - Seattle's 2nd round, Green Bay's 3rd and Tennessee's 5th round selections.
