So her goes

Nice thread op

 

1) my father was a world class figure skater won junior worlds. When I was I kid all he talked about is foot work. Did dance class and ballot. Yeah go ahead laugh so did Jerry Rice his foot was pretty good.

 

2) in Josh's rookie year his foot work was how do I say it nicely bad.  3 step drops 5 step drops were very unnatural for him and his arm was at the wrong angle 😳 with his feet.

 

3) if you watch him know it is very natural.

4) elam foot work is a step above what most rookies have like he studies the game and always watches others. 1 reporter even noted how he back peddles and strides..

 

Most of the draft picks except ford all have good footwork.

 

Really shows up on film and the fact that they are all students of the game and all well mannered young man.

 

Maybe this is why magic bean is the gm of the year.

 

 

Please note no oline talk 

And mcds pink filling in there burgers

 

And yes game need to see rookies in an actual game

This thread needs some negativity to balance the optimism

 

ok, I'll try.  Elam is great, but will be held back by Frazier playing the CBs off the line.  The FO will trade him too soon, and he'll be the next Wyatt Teller.  

 

That's all I got.  ;)

My feelings at time of the draft were that it was just okay. I’ll reserve further judgement until I see them play. Beane was not in an easy spot on draft day 1. He was sitting there with a very late pick and had to come away with a CB who could start.  He had plenty of work to do the rest of the weekend too.

Here’s my only bout of pessimism: CB Andrew Booth of the Vikings has been balling out in camp and has even held his own with Justin Jefferson. Booth was taken in the 2nd round, after the Bills traded up for Elam, and the Bills admitted that Elam was the only player left that they had a first round grade on. Will be interesting to see how both careers pan out.

What a time to be alive

 

I remember the days of the 80's, when I went to a college interview out-of-state, and my father felt the need to voluntarily apologize for us being from Buffalo and for the team's poor play. I was thinking to myself: "please just shut up; let's not rub it in", lol!

2018 gonna be hard to beat. Elite QB, decent MLB (kind of polarizing one), solid DT, top 5 slot CB, solid depth safety/big nickel guy, high end guard (that we ended up trading early)

 

And a somewhat decent return specialist who we ended up waiving. According to his Wikipedia page:

 

"McCloud signed a one-year contract extension with the Steelers on March 11, 2021.[21] McCloud became the Steelers' primary return specialist, returning 28 kickoffs for 646 yards and 29 punts with an average of 10.7 yards. He was named by Pro Football Focus on its All-Pro roster as a second-team return specialist."

I don’t mean to jump the gun…but ***** it Ima jump the gun!

 

Is it just me or does this draft class seem to be a total grand slam??? I can’t remember another class where just about ALL of the picks of made standout plays in camp with the vets….mind you, very good vets! This isn’t some bum team where rookies should be shining like in years past. Even down to Spector, our 7th round pick, I believe all have gotten reps with the ones. Sometimes cause injury but more often cause they earned the look. And even in the injury situations, it’s been mostly reported of them holding their own vs seeming overwhelmed. This is amazing! Beane is really shaping up to be the GOAT.

 

I think this will end up being our overall best draft class yet. Gotta love BBB.

 

 


They look like good pics, but we’ll know more after the preseason, and then how they do in their rookie season.  This thread should probably wait until after the season.  I’m happy for you’re excitement, and looks promising.
