Was wondering why so many want us to grab Milton late… I get it now. Guy could be a great backup for us. 

 

He is ungodly inaccurate. If you think you can put him on the Josh Allen plan than go for it but he's more of a PS guy in year 1 to me than a viable NFL backup.

McConkey had a tremendous gauntlet. 

I love McConkey. I'm a UGA fan (I live just outside of Athens.) He's easily one of my favorite players in the draft.

He'd need to be the second receiver we take, unfortunately, and he'll be gone way before #60. Not to mention some folks here would go apoplectic if we double dipped on receiver the first two rounds. (And to be fair, they'd probably be right about that.)

His writeups remind me of Josh Allen and wouldn't mind taking a flier on him as could develop and then be moved for a higher pick than we drafted him type situation.

I had him at # 5 in my rankings and he is not an ideal fit for the Bills but if you are to believe Brandon Beane that they are just looking for playmakers and guys who can separate and get open and don't care about body types than McConkey has to be in consideration at 28. I am coming around on the idea of him even though he's not a perfect fit and will never be a true # 1 WR.

Dammit. I can't really be rational about my favorites. I think they need to get a big X. It has to be Thomas, Mitchell, or Legette at #28. (Or maybe Coleman -- don't want to upset @HappyDays). But McConkey has late first talent. Folks can argue all they like, I won't budge.

Mitchell looked great in the 40 & gauntlet.  Now he's dropping everything during qb drill.

It's all part of the master plan.

Beane is going to draft DL round 1, and move up in the 2nd for McConkey. He just can’t help himself!!!

The best DTs that will go in the first play 3T, the same position Ed does. Sweat is not a first rounder. Latu will be gone before #28. The only dumb thing that could muck it up is taking Chop Robinson, which might happen. It would be dumb, but I don't discount the possibility.

Id love to draft Joe. He is the poundland Josh Allen. Like the Ravens model where Huntley is the poundland Lamar.

He's 65% his last 2 collegiate seasons. And he's been on the money today.  Yeah I'm drafting this kid rather than waste 2-3 million every year on the Barkley, Tribisky,  Allen brigade.  Now Milton is putting on a show during the Josh drill.

EJ Manuel threw over 65% too and he sucked in the NFL and was inaccurate.  Guys who throw bubble screens all day are different than guys who have to throw a 15 yard dig route or a 14 yard comeback.

My impressions from only the qb drills

 1 nix - accurate, and a strong rhythm thrower.  Doing know if he can be effective at the next level, but he screams career backup or platoon starter

 2. Leary - best throws in the drills.  Thought he looked really strong.  Even has a bit of arm to him on the deep shots.  Would be an interesting guy to stash for a year 

3. Milton.  Allen lite.  Arm for days, but every 4th throw looks badddd.  Great stash for someone

 4. McCarthey - not a fan.  Looks inconsistent and nothing jumps out to me.   Has a great throw here and there, but not a fan.  What’s interesting, idk if his first throw in any drill was good

 5.  Hartman - bad day, looks to be the worst by a bit
