  1. There was a vibe of professionalism that seemed to permeate the war room. Very interesting, and maybe not exactly what you would expect from an effort to draft college football players. I view it as a real positive, mature and a sense that they were confident in what they were doing.
  2. I would be happy with Jonah Williams or Wilkins. A little concerned that both could be gone when we pick (although it would be a bit of a surprise if Wilkins is drafted before our pick).
  3. Cyrus Kouandjio was another poor second round pick and if not in the top five worst picks this decade, then just outside of it.
  4. Assuming this is true, and combining this information with his reported score of 9 on the Wonderlic, I would pass. Seems like the kind of thing that could knock him pretty far down in the first round (or even out of the first round), if true.
  5. It is hard to forget the Whaley era when the NFL Network rebroadcasts recent drafts, including the 2014 draft where we traded up to the fourth pick in the first round to select Sammy Watkins, giving up our first round pick in 2015. We could have selected Mack or Mike Evans with that pick, or stayed at our original spot and selected Beckhan or Donald. In the second round, Whaley selected Cyrus Kouandijo. Still painful.
  6. I hope we draft Williams at 9. I get it that we have other needs, including DT, TE, DE and WR, but I think he is going to be a really good player. Unclear if he will be available at 9. Where he gets drafted seems a bit all over the place.
  7. Very few things to be sure of with this draft other than it is unlikely the Bills draft a QB. They signed a lot of free agents this offseason, which means fewer available roster spots. As a result, I also do not expect that the Bills will use all of their picks, instead packaging some to move up in the draft, particularly since Beane does seem to target players he wants. I think we go DT or DE in the first round. Kind of surprised that there is little talk about our needs at LB. I think it is an overall area of need and the Bills draft a couple of LBs and at least one CB. I think the draft will heavy on the defense.
  8. I also have a feeling that we are trading for Clark. Was Dan Morgan with Seattle when Clark was drafted?
  9. I really like the addition of Morse, but I seem to be in the minority with the view that the rest of the OL free agent additions appear to be quality back-ups and and not quality starters. Nsekhe is 33 and seems best suited to be a swing tackle. Same with Waddle in terms of being a quality swing tackle. Long has the ability to play center and guard, which is great for a back-up, but the Jets were eager to replace him after signing him in free agency and then releasing him. I can see Spain as a bridge to drafting a guard with strong potential. Feliciano is potentially a quality back-up guard. I know we have other needs, but I continue to believe that we need to draft a RT or LT and a guard in the early rounds of the draft. Not sure I understand our current strategy with the o-line other than creating competition and expecting that many of the players on the roster before free agency (and possibly some signed in free agency) will not be making the final roster.
  10. Other than Morse (who is a clear upgrade) and Dawkins (who needs to play better than last year), it seems like we have a bunch of guys with significant question marks, at least in terms of being potential starting upgrades from last year's o-line. It will be interesting to see if Nsekhe can be a quality starter at RT given his experience and recent play, but he is older and I don't think we can count on him being the long-term solution at RT. Long played poorly last season at center for the Jets, but he played with an injury. Hopefully, he can be an upgrade at guard. No idea about Feliciano and whether he can become a quality starter. At a minimum, we currently have more quality depth along the o-line compared to last season's group. Hopefully, some of the free agents we signed for the o-line can be upgrades. I still think we will pick a guard and/or tackle in this year's draft in the early rounds. At this point, I believe that target will be Lindstrom (BC) in the second round if he is available.
  11. We will see about their player evaluation abilities with the addition of these free agents and, among other things, trading up for Allen and Edmunds last year. Ultimately, performance on the field this year will be the best way to assess this front office. I have concerns about overpaying for what I would have thought were tier two and tier three level free agents and the injury history with some of these players, but we will see.
  12. I wonder what happened with Daryl Williams. Have to assume we are not signing him, but I have seen no rumors about him either.
  13. I thought durability was a big thing with Beane. Another player with very recent injury issues? Starting to get concerned.
  14. The Jets have acquired a bunch of players that were quality starters for their former teams. How they will perform together in NJ with a new coaching staff, new systems and new team is unknown, but pretty impressive haul in terms of overall talent so far. I would have loved this group of players for the Bills.
  15. I understand that the offseason is long and we need to patient, but I am disappointed at this point. Signing Daryl Williams, assuming he is healthy, would change my view. Do not understand Gore if we are going to keep McCoy this season. Seemed to overpay for Kroft. Was hoping for Crowder or Humphrey at WR and maybe Barr. WR continues to be a big need that has not been addressed yet. Also wondering about what we are going to do at guard. I don't think that Long is the answer and who knows whether Teller will develop. I also do not like that the Jets have acquired some of the players I was hoping the Bills would get.
