Around the Alliance 13.20 REST IN RIVALRY

2020.10.15 16:28 Sconnie92 Around the Alliance 13.20 REST IN RIVALRY

This week in the UFFA came a time of contemplation, both of the past and the present. The injury-marred 2020 season has left us reflecting on potential lost and hearts broken. The close matches of week 5 also reminded us of how fierce the competition inside the Alliance truly is. To that end, the Alliance Archives (a sub-division of UFFA Media and partner of Around the Alliance) has revised the Legacy Scoring SystemTM in order to include the influence of rivalry wins/losses in a team's legacy (more on that later).
In this edition of AtA...

POWER RANKINGS

In the continuing saga of Power Rankings, half of the Alliance has yet to plateau at any point (St. Louis, Lincoln, Swansea, Hawaii, Dunedin). Albuquerque breaks their streak, while Alaska, OKC, and Northwoods all hold firm for a 3rd straight week.
Biggest Rise: Lincoln (+4)
Biggest Fall: Swansea (-3)
  1. Alaska Kodiak 4-1 (High: 1 / Low: 1 / - )~~~ Alaska remains the consensus top dog in the Alliance. The impending return of Christian McCaffrey has spirits nearly as high as the fans' expectations. The Kodiak have assembled a true super team thanks to a high percentage of draft picks and free agent signings paying off. Most recently was QB Andy Dalton, who was shipped off to North Wisconsin in exchange for a 21 2nd round pick and WR Kenny Stills.
  2. Oklahoma City Storm 2-3 (High: 2 / Low: 4 / - )~~~ Despite a narrow loss to division rival Lincoln, the rankers remain high on the defending champs. Concerning reports about 2019 MVP Michael Thomas and recent injury to RB Dalvin Cook are major cracks in the armor. If OKC can't manage some big wins in the near future, they might see their cache of confidence start to dwindle.
  3. Lincoln Johnsons 3-2 (High: 2 / Low: 5 / +4 )~~~ Arguably the most spastic of UFFA teams, the Johnsons are back up after a down-to-the-wire win against the Storm. Currently, Lincoln sits over 100pts behind the Hoes on tiebreaker for the Interior. With that kind of deficit, Derrick Henry and company are going to need to power up the offense a little more. The addition of WR Brandin Cooks from Hawaii may do the trick, as Cooks looks to make a splash on his 4th team in the last 2 years.
  4. Northwoods Hodags 3-2 (High: 1 / Low: 5 / - )~~~ After a big win over Hawaii and securing the Interior lead, the Hoes find themselves still ranked behind two division rivals. Northwoods is only 11.5pts behind OKC for 2nd in total scoring, and with a primetime, homefield showdown against their arch-rival in week 6, the Hodags get a shot at sweeping the champs!
  5. St. Louis Clydesdales 3-2 (High: 3 / Low: 6 / -2 )~~~ It was a fun week for the herd on top of the Interior, but a crushing loss to the underdog Roadrunners has brought St. Louis back to earth. While hopeful to get their TE stud duo of Hockenson and Fant back, the Clydesdales now have to head to Alaska with questions surrounding RB Melvin Gordon's status going forward. Gordon's image was removed from all St. Louis social media accounts following his DUI arrest in Denver, CO.
  6. San Juan Shrimp 2-3 (High: 3 / Low: 7 / - )~~~ San Juan went toe-to-toe with the Kodiak in an impressive performance, but came up short of a W in week 5. The Shrimp's defense held the big plays in check, but had no answer for TE Diety Travis Kelce. This ended up being the tipping point, as Tyler Higbee was unable to keep pace. San Juan should be encouraged that they matched across the board (nearly point-for-point by position) against the top dog. Now they travel across the globe for a showdown with arch-rival Swansea in a big prove-it contest for both teams.
  7. Dunedin Rangers 2-3 (High: 6 / Low: 8 / +1 )~~~ Trading for QB Justin Herbert flew in the face of the "we're tanking" narrative put out by team media the last two weeks. And in case there were any doubters on the deal, Herbert hit the ground running with Dunedin, leading them to a resounding victory over the Ducks. The Rangers still sit on the outside of the playoff bubble, but look to have the firepower on offense to get back into the tiebreaker fray soon. In years to come, GM Koch's strategy may be the blueprint for retooling in-season.
  8. Swansea City Ducks 3-2 (High: 6 / Low: 8 / -3 )~~~ Dropping two straight games is rough, but the Ducks did themselves no favors by putting up the lowest score on the week by a decent margin. Injuries have left City borderline lame with their lack of depth. Jimmy Garappolo is back, but looks hella rusty, and now the team is facing questions from WR starters Dionte Johnson and Keenan Allen. RB Nick Chubb still looks a long way off on his return, but there is a glimmer of hope in the emergence of DK Metcalf and the continued (and surprising) youthfulness of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.
  9. Albuquerque Roadrunners 2-3 (High: 7 / Low: 9 / +1 )~~~ With a home win over the division leading Clydesdales, the Roadrunners pick up their second W on the year. More significant, they left a strong enough impression with the rankers to lift themselves out of 10th for the first time all season. The old man TE squad is still a major concern, but RB Chase Edmonds has given a lot of hope these past weeks. Paired with the surprising start for Ryan Tannehill and Stefon Diggs, things might be looking up sooner than later in the desert.
  10. Hawaii Volcanoes 1-4 (High: 8 / Low: 9 / -1 )~~~ The Volcanoes finished in the top half of scoring yet again, but came away with the loss. Hawaii will be without Team Captain Drew Brees this week (mandatory rest), but was able to find Joe Flacco off the street to fill-in. There's hope that rookie WR Jerry Jeudy's return from mandatory rest (a surprise add to the COVID list) will give the team the spark they need against division rival Dunedin this week.

LEGACY SCORES

When reading Legacy Scores, remember these are reflections of a team's trend. The science behind the score is built around a baseline of 0pts. If a team has a score > 0 that means their fans are generally happy with the teams direction/production/recent success. The higher a number is from zero, the happier a fanbase is. For reference, a perfect season (16-0) with maximum rivalry bonuses would yield a score of 57.45.
Meanwhile, a score < 0 reflects a fanbase that is generally unhappy with a team's performance/direction. The lower this number gets, the closer to mass riots a city comes. For reference, a team with an 0-13 record in 2020 would produce -28.2.

> 50 Donald Trump and Joe Biden agree that you are the best.
40 ~ 50 Yankee/Cowboy/Laker fans adopt you as their UFFA team; Ben & Jerry's give you a commemorative flavor.
30 ~ 40 Hot take headlines like "dynasty" and "generational" are being tossed around; People are hate-watching your games.
20 ~ 30 People are wearing team jerseys to formal events; Free agents put you at the top of their list.
10 ~ 20 Fairweather fans are coming out of the woodwork and corporate offices are buying up suites.
1 ~ 10 If you aren't making the playoffs this year, it's clear you'll be the offseason darling.
0 No one is writing fiery posts and spewing scorching hot takes; Andy Dalton is your starting quarterback.
-1 ~ -10 Fans are still disappointed by a loss, but the fairweather fans are growing disinterested.
-10 ~ -20 People are complaining and believe the team needs a big shakeup.
-20 ~ -30 The team is a bit of a meme with some real ghosts to exorcise; Season tickets are drying up.
-30 ~ -40 Hue Jackson is your head coach and Bill O'Brien your GM; a fresh relocation may be in order.
-40 ~ -50 Downtown is burning, Marshal Law declared, FEMA and the UN are prepping care package drops; The president is calling for Brandon Weeden's head.
< -50 You've relocated to Gary, IN.
LEGACY SCORE STANDINGS
  1. Oklahoma City Storm (31.1)
  2. Alaska Kodiak (24.15)
  3. Lincoln Johnsons (15.65)
  4. Northwoods Hodags (10.05)
  5. Swansea City Ducks (-2.05)
  6. Albuquerque Roadrunners (-2.1)
  7. San Juan Shrimp (-2.35)
  8. Dunedin Rangers (-2.55)
  9. Hawaii Volcanoes (-6.3)
  10. St. Louis Clydesdales (-28.25)
In a revision of how Legacy Score is determined, the following is the formula used:
Wins: +1pt (+0.1 against rival, +0.25 against arch-rival)
Losses: -1pt ( -0.1 against rival, -0.25 against arch-rival)
Recent 20 Games: (+/- games above/below .500 winning percentage) \ 1.1pts*
Wildcard Berths: \ 1pt*
Division Titles: \ 5pts*
Playoff Wins: \3pts (+0.25/rival, +0.5/arch-rival)*
Playoff Losses: 0pts ( -0.1/rival, -0.5/arch-rival)
Championship Win: 15pts (+1/rival, +3/arch-rival)
Championship Loss: 0pts ( -0.25/rival, -0.75/arch-rival)

2020.08.29 18:04 firstname_shadesof Until I had to name a baby I never realized that I dislike almost all boy names! Help!

I’m having a baby boy in December and I’m stumped on names! I’m suddenly realizing that I dislike a LOT of boy names.
His last name will be Gray, and we currently live in the southern USA. I really like traditional names with one widely accepted pronunciation and spelling. I also like longer names that have short nicknames, where both names are pretty widely accepted/known. Both I and my partner are white, and while my family is of Italian origin, I’m not sure it’s a big enough part of our identity as a new family to justify using an Italian name.
If you want to help out, I’d mostly love to discuss the names we have on our “like” list but I’m also open to more suggestions! Tell me which ones don’t go with Gray, which ones do, which are too trendy, etc.
At the risk of looking totally insane, I’ll include all the names people have suggested that we don’t like in case it helps.
His middle name will be one of a few possible family names, we’ll choose it based on how well it flows with the first name.
 
We sort of like these: Adam Andrew Cameron Christopher Daniel Elijah Emmett Ethan Evan Everett Isaac Jonathan Jordan Joseph Levi Michael Noel Samuel
Like these but can’t/don’t want to use these: Adam Alexander Anthony Benjamin Bennet Conrad David Derek George Henry Jacob Joel John Julian Lee Leo Matthew Michael Nicholas Owen Thomas Victor
Don’t love: Aaron Abraham Aiden/Brayden/Jaden Alan Anton Arthur Ashton Barrett Bradley Beckham Brendan Caleb Calvin Carter Charles Charlie Clarence Colby/Cole Colin Cooper Curtis Dean Dexter Donovan Douglas Dylan Elliot Emerson Eric Flynn Francis Franklin Fredrick Geoffrey Harry Harrison Hudson Hugo Hunter Hyrum Isaiah Jackson Jason Jeremiah Johnson Jonas Judson Justin Kelvin Landon Liam Lincoln Logan Louis Lucas/Luke Mark Martin Mason Maxwell Max Mitchell Nash Nathan Noah Nolan Oliver Orion Patrick Paul Peter Phillip Richard Robert Ryan Sawyer Scott Seth Sebastian Stephen/Steven Sutton Thaddeus Theodore Timothy Todd Trevor Tyler Vincent Warner Warren Wesley Wesson William Wyatt Zachary

2020.07.25 15:46 PM-ME-A-PRIME-NUMBER Offseason Review Series: The 2020 New York Jets

New York Jets

Division: AFC East
 
1 New England Patriots (12-4)
2 Buffalo Bills (10-6)
3 New York Jets (7-9)
4 Miami Dolphins (5-11)
 

Coaching Changes

The Jets did not make any major coaching changes this offseason, retaining HC Adam Gase, OC Dowell Loggains, and DC Gregg Williams.
 

Free Agency

Players Lost/Cut
Player Position New Team
Trevor Siemian QB Free Agent
Bilal Powell RB Free Agent
Ty Montgomery RB New Orleans
Robby Anderson WR Carolina
Demaryius Thomas WR Free Agent
Kelvin Beachum LT Arizona
Brent Qvale LG Houston
Ryan Kalil C Free Agent
Tom Compton RG San Francisco
Brandon Shell RT Seattle
Brandon Copeland EDGE New England
Paul Worrilow ILB Free Agent
Albert McClellan ILB Free Agent
Trumaine Johnson CB Free Agent
Darryl Roberts FS Detroit
Rontez Miles FS Free Agent
Blake Countess DB Free Agent
Lachlan Edwards P Free Agent
 
The Jets reshaped their weapons for Sam Darnold this offseason, losing three veterans and bringing in a number of free agents and draft picks. GM Joe Douglas opted not to re-sign RB Bilal Powell who the Jets drafted in 2011, and he remains a free agent. Most significantly, Douglas allowed his top offensive weapon in WR Robby Anderson to walk to Carolina on a 2-year, $20.0 MM deal, creating a void at outside receiver. The team has also not re-signed WR Demaryius Thomas, who filled in for Quincy Enunwa last season and remains a free agent.
 
The biggest change that the Jets made to their personnel this offseason was along the offensive line, and as such there were a number of veteran casualties. LT Kelvin Beachum started for the Jets from 2017 to 2019, but he seems to have regressed, but he projects to compete for Arizona on a 1-year deal. The Jets also let C Ryan Kalil go, who unretired to snap for Sam Darnold last offseason but disappointed and got injured, and he remains a free agent. RG Tom Compton was forced into action last season with the injury to Brian Winters, and he, as is characteristic of his NFL career thus far, struggled massively in run blocking and pass pro, but he projects to compete anyway next year for San Francisco on a 1-year deal. Joe Douglas and Adam Gase never expressed interest in RT Brandon Shell for the long term, benching him for the raw Chuma Edoga early in 2019, so it was not a surprise to see the Jets let Shell go to start for Seattle on a 2-year contract.
 
The Jets mostly kept their 7th-ranked total defense in tact this offseason, only losing two key pieces. EDGE Brandon Copeland left for New England on a 1-year contract, which is not a surprising location, as Copeland is a great utility player, functioning as a rush linebacker, an off-ball linebacker, and a core special teamer for the Jets in 2019. Similarly, Joe Douglas has not re-signed the versatile FS Rontez Miles, who has played high safety, box safety, and a key special-teams role during his seven-year Jets tenure, and he remains a free agent.
 
The Jets cut CB Trumaine Johnson, which was virtually a no-brainer after two injury-plagued seasons in which his lack of speed was frequently exposed. The only real decision was whether to cut Johnson immediately, which would have resulted in a $12.0 MM dead cap hit in 2020, or to designate Johnson as a post-June 1 cut, which would have resulted in a $4.0 MM dead cap hit in 2020 and a $8.0 MM dead cap hit in 2021. Joe Douglas opted for the latter, meaning that the Jets saved a total of $11.0 MM by cutting Johnson in 2020. Grade: A
 
The Jets cut FS Darryl Roberts in mid-March. The Jets had high hopes for Roberts following the 2018 season, prompting them to sign him to a three-year contract with an out after one year. Roberts had a rocky first eight games of the season at cornerback before injuring his calf and being benched in favor of Maulet and Austin. Roberts remained a special-teams asset and good safety depth in December, but ultimately GM Joe Douglas decided he could cut Roberts, save $6.0 MM, and look elsewhere for a replacement. Grade: B
 
Players Signed
Player Position Old Team Length Salary
Joe Flacco QB Denver 1 year $1.5 MM
David Fales QB NY Jets 1 year $0.9 MM
Frank Gore RB Buffalo 1 year $1.1 MM
Breshad Perriman WR Tampa Bay 1 year $6.5 MM
Josh Doctson WR Minnesota 1 year $0.9 MM
Daniel Brown TE NY Jets 1 year $0.8 MM
Alex Lewis LG NY Jets 3 years $18.6 MM
Greg Van Roten LG Carolina 3 years $10.5 MM
Josh Andrews LG Indianapolis 1 year $1.0 MM
Connor McGovern C Denver 3 years $27.0 MM
George Fant RT Seattle 3 years $27.3 MM
Jordan Jenkins EDGE NY Jets 1 year $3.9 MM
Neville Hewitt ILB NY Jets 1 year $2.0 MM
Patrick Onwuasor ILB Baltimore 1 year $2.0 MM
James Burgess ILB NY Jets 1 year $0.9 MM
Pierre Desir CB Indianapolis 1 year $4.0 MM
Arthur Maulet CB NY Jets 1 year $0.9 MM
Quincy Wilson CB Indianapolis 1 year $1.3 MM
Brian Poole NCB NY Jets 1 year $5.0 MM
Bennett Jackson FS NY Jets 1 year $0.7 MM
 
Jets GM Joe Douglas used to work in Baltimore, where he was supposedly very influential in the decision to draft QB Joe Flacco, so this signing is far from surprising. While Joe Flacco may be trending down in his play, $1.5 MM feels like a bargain for the chance at solid veteran insurance for Sam Darnold. However, his neck surgery will supposedly keep him out for the opening of the season. Grade: B
 
After the draft, the Jets signed RB Frank Gore to a 1-year, $1.1 MM deal to ensure that he will play his 16th season in green and white. Gore is a physical back who played under Jets HC Adam Gase in San Francisco in 2008 and in Miami in 2018. Gore can take some of the pressure off of starting RB Le'Veon Bell in 2020 as the Jets move towards a "runningback by committee" system. Grade: B
 
The Jets-Ravens connection proved strong again with the signing of WR Breshad Perriman. Perriman was a first-round pick for the Ravens in 2015 while current Jets' Director of Player Personnel Chad Alexander was with Baltimore, and though he never really produced at a high level there, he had a resurgence in 2019 for the Buccaneers. Especially in November and December, where he performed at a 1000-yard rate projected over a whole season, Perriman proved to be a legitimate outside option across from Mike Evans with Chris Godwin in the slot. Perriman is a big, athletic receiver who projects to be worth the $6.5 MM deal to get a shot on the outside. Grade: A
 
Yet again, the Jets signed a former Ravens player, re-signing LG Alex Lewis, who played 2016 through 2018 with Baltimore before GM Joe Douglas traded for him in the 2019 offseason. Lewis stepped in for Kelechi Osemele last season and was a serviceable starter. Lewis is good in pass pro, versatile, and a good zone fit as a guard. However, Lewis could touch up on his penalties and overall run blocking for 2020. GM Joe Douglas only gave Lewis a 3-year, $18.6 MM deal which actually has an out after 1 year, which seems like a solid price to get another look at a 28-year-old guard who might be part of the team's future. Grade: B
 
The Jets' biggest free-agent singing in 2020 in terms of guaranteed money was former Broncos' C Connor McGovern at $18.0 MM. McGovern is an athletic lineman with experience at guard and center. He is a powerful center, and that serves him well in the run game. However, McGovern has a weak anchor and inconsistent pad level and leverage in the pass game. For this reason, despite the need at center, Joe Douglas' decision to commit two years to a center who is, perhaps, below average in pass pro is worthy of scrutiny. Grade: C
 
The biggest heavily-scrutinized acquisition that the Jets made in 2020 was probably signing former Seahawks RT George Fant to a 3-year, $27.3 MM contract. Fant functioned primarily as a swing tackle and as a sixth offensive lineman in Seattle, as he could not see the field as a starter over Germain Ifedi. Fant remains a very raw pass protector in terms of his anchor and the fluidity of his kickslide, and his ability in the run is only theoretically a strength in zone blocking. While Fant's contract has an out in 2021, it is a bit strange to see him making a similar salary to Bryan Bulaga and Halapoulvaati Vaitai. Grade: D
 
The Jets were patient in re-signing their own free agents, which probably helped get good value retaining EDGE Jordan Jenkins. Despite notching 15 combined sacks over the past two seasons, Jenkins only got $3.9 MM from the Jets. The sack number is a bit misleading, though, due to a high quantity of "coverage sacks" and a relatively modest pressure rate. However, Jenkins is a fine run defender, and he'll slot in as EDGE #1 again for the Jets in 2020. Grade: B
 
The Jets also acquired a former Raven on defense with LB Patrick Onwuasor, and they only paid $2.0 MM to bring him in. Onwuasor is an undersized linebacker but a good linear athlete, and while he struggles reading offensive cues and getting off of blocks to stop the run, he is a really good coverage player with the ability to get home as a pass rusher. Onwuasor has played next to CJ Mosley before, and he could potentially contribute in subpackage and base 4-3 looks, in addition to in a depth capacity and on special teams. Grade: A
 
With the cuts of Trumaine Johnson and Darryl Roberts, GM Joe Douglas decided to fill a starting cornerback spot with former Colts CB Pierre Desir on a 1-year, prove-it deal. Desir lacks longspeed, but he is a long, physical corner with decent short-area quickness. However, Desir lacks refinement in press and zone. With that said, $4.0 MM is a reasonable price to get a fill-in outside cornerback in 2020. Grade: B
 
This signing probably didnt get much national coverage, but re-signing CB Arthur Maulet could pay huge dividends for the Jets in 2020. In 2019, Trumaine Johnson and Darryl Roberts failed to hit expectations, forcing Maulet, Nate Hairston, and rookie Blessuan Austin into the outside cornerback rotation. Maulet is the only one of that group who was not benched for performance reasons. For a mere $0.9 MM, retaining a guy in Maulet who is familiar with the defense who will compete to start in 2020 is seemingly a no-brainer. Grade: A
 
Instead of making another draft choice, the Jets decided to trade pick 211 for former Colts CB Quincy Wilson. Wilson, a former 2nd-round pick, was a raw prospect coming out of Florida, and his penalties and lack of zone instincts followed him to the pros and led to his benching. However, Wilson is a big, long, and athletic corner, and at only 23 years of age, it makes sense that GM Joe Douglas wants to bring him on board to compete in an iffy cornerback room. Grade: C
 
This signing went somewhat under-the-radar, but Jets fans were thrilled when the team retained NCB Brian Poole to play slot on a 1-year, $5.0 MM contract. Poole is a good run defender with an ability to rush the passer, and he had a career year in coverage in 2019. Brian Poole is a good fit for Gregg Williams' defense, so retaining him to start in 2020 for a mere $5.0 MM seems to be a good value. Grade: B
 

Draft

Round Number Pos Player School
1 11 LT Mekhi Becton Louisville
2 59 WR Denzel Mims Baylor
3 68 FS Ashtyn Davis Cal
3 79 EDGE Jabari Zuniga Florida
4 120 RB La'Mical Perine Florida
4 125 QB James Morgan FIU
4 129 LT Cameron Clark Charlotte
5 158 CB Bryce Hall Virginia
6 191 P Braden Mann Texas A&M
 
The eleventh pick, Louisville LT Mekhi Becton, was my favorite acquisition that the Jets made during the 2020 offseason. While there were other options on the board, namely Tristan Wirfs, Henry Ruggs, and CeeDee Lamb, that the Jets presumably could have considered, Becton was the exact player I thought the Jets should take when he fell to 11. The first thing that stands out about Becton is his massive size, as he's 6'7", 364 lbs, with a monstrous 83-inch wingspan. Becton, however, is much more than a heavy lineman, as he defies expectations with his exceptional 5.1-flat movement skills. Becton is a hulking run blocker who is inexperienced but a fluid mover in pass pro. Becton projects to replace Kelvin Beachum and slide in at left tackle immediately in his rookie season. Grade: A
 
Wanting to add more picks to build the Jets in his image in his first year as GM, Joe Douglas opted to move down from 48 to 59 in the second round. This was a costly move, as it caused the Jets to miss out on AJ Epenesa and Darrell Taylor, but the Jets managed to grab a falling Senior Bowl standout in Baylor WR Denzel Mims. Mims is a height-weight-speed freak with good length, hands, and blocking. Mims should start at outside receiver across from Breshad Perriman in year one. Grade: B
 
The Jets' first third-round pick of 2020 was a real surprise to many fans, as although the team already had arguably the best safety tandem in football with Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye, the Jets drafted Cal FS Ashytn Davis with the 68th-overall draft selection. Davis is a freak athlete who played high safety, box safety, and even slot corner at Cal and would almost definitely have been drafted significantly higher but for teams' inability to medically check his groin post-surgery. It's possible that Gregg Williams will utilize Davis as a big nickel defender this year, but this selection could also give the Jets flexibility if Marcus Maye, who is a free agent in 2021, or Jamal Adams, with whom the Jets are supposedly far apart on a long-term contract, depart. Grade: B
 
Despite having a starting EDGE tandem consisting of Jordan Jenkins and Tarell Basham and losing Brandon Copeland to New England, the Jets did not add outside talent to the position group before the draft, forcing GM Joe Douglas to pick Florida EDGE Jabari Zuniga at 79 overall. Zuniga is a good linear athlete with a decent ability to set the edge and some interior versatility, and he could project to replace Jordan Jenkins as a starter in 2021. However, Zuniga struggles with stiff hips and slow reaction time at the snap, and plus he missed most of the 2019 season with ankle injuries. The Jets probably hit the right position with Zuniga, who should factor into the pass-rush rotation with Jenkins, Basham, and Kyle Phillips, but it's hard to justify drafting Zuniga with guys like Jonathan Greenard, Terrell Lewis, and DJ Wonnum still on the board. Grade: C
 
With his first day-3 selection as GM, Joe Douglas chose Florida RB La'Mical Perine. Perine is a physical runner with some receiving versatility out of the backfield. However, Perine doesn't really offer very much in terms of speed or vision, and drafting a RB instead of going offensive line, pass rush, receiver, or cornerback with Le'Veon Bell already in the fold was a curious move. Grade: D
 
The second of the Jets' 4th-round picks probably stirred up the most intrigue, as most casual football fans probably didn't expect the Jets to draft a quarterback. With that said, the Jets have gone a combined 0-6 over the past two seasons in games that Darnold did not start, and at this time David Fales was slated to be the backup quarterback, so drafting FIU QB James Morgan in the fourth round, which I thought was a value anyway, was a good choice. Morgan is a thick quarterback with a live arm with developmental potential. Grade: B
 
With their third pick in the fourth round, the Jets chose a player with the potential to start soon on the offensive line in Charlotte LT Cameron Clark. Clark is a powerful lineman who started at left tackle in his rSo, rJr, and rSr seasons and has good short-area quickness despite his 5.29 forty. Some have floated Cameron Clark as a potential convert to guard for the Jets due to his sloppy pass-pro footwork. Grade: B
 
The Jets addressed the secondary in round 5, taking Virginia CB Bryce Hall at 158 overall. Hall is a long, tall corner who moves well, has zone instincts, and contributes in the run game. However, Hall's struggles in press and off-man probably project him better as a safety in the NFL rather than as a corner, which doesn't seem to be a need with Adams, Maye, and Davis already in the fold, and Hall's ankle injury prevented him from working out at the Combine, leaving teams in a state of uncertainty about his health and his testing numbers. Grade: C
 
With their 6th-round pick, the Jets went special teams with Texas A&M P Braden Mann. Mann has a big leg and can handle kickoff duties. Mann projects to replace Lachlan Edwards, but this may have been a tad high for a punter. Grade: C
 
The Jets had an intriguing undrafted free agent class with a number of guys who warranted day-3 draft consideration, but two guys that I liked pre-draft stood out as being worth mentioning. Georgia WR Lawrence Cager is a physical receiver at the line of scrimmage and a redzone threat. Alabama NCB Shyheim Carter played the STAR role in Nick Saban's defense, and he proved his versatility as a college approximation of a nickel corner, a box safety, a high safety, and a subpackage linebacker, and he likely would have been drafted if teams had been able to conduct medical rechecks on him after a minor injury prevented him from working out at the Combine.
 

Other Offseason News

After tensions flared at the trade deadline last season, SS Jamal Adams expressed his frustrations with a lack of a contract extension on social media before supposedly requesting a trade in June. However, according to Connor Hughes at The Athletic, the Jets still hope to sign Adams to a long-term contract. Reportedly, over half of the teams in the NFL have expressed interest in adding the defensive star, but the Dallas Cowboys have gotten the most traction as a potential trade partner, with La'El Collins and Michael Gallup coming up as potential trade targets. Jamal Adams is still on his rookie contract for 2020, and the Jets accepted his fifth-year option for 2021.
 
Also, this isn't really news, but former Jets' All Pro CB Darrelle Revis continued his spat with 49ers' All Pro Richard Sherman, culminating in this unusual Tweet:
3 facts here.
@RSherman_25
•I’m more handsome than him according to women.
•I’m better at corner than him according to everyone.
•Shutdown corners are paid more than Zone 3 corners which I’m currently still am today.

Position Group Strengths and Weaknesses

QB - Neutral/Weakness
Jets fans aren't going to love this one, but Sam Darnold is arguably still a bottom-third passer going into 2020. Darnold has been surrounded by a poor supporting cast over the past two years, including a turnstile of receivers with drop issues across Robby Anderson and linemen with pass-pro issues, but he certainly has not dominated like other young quarterbacks such as Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson, and Carson Wentz. The Jets have a good group behind Darnold, though, including Joe Flacco, who supposedly won't be ready for week 1, and James Morgan, a 4th-round rookie out of FIU.
 
Backfield - Strength
Le'Veon Bell, who is making $15.5 MM this season, is an all-around back in terms of running between the tackles, receiving, and pass protecting. The Jets also signed the ageless wonder Frank Gore to take some of the pressure off of Bell. Joe Douglas also drafted La'Mical Perine to contribute in the backfield.
 
Pass Catchers - Neutral/Weakness
In 2020, the Jets are banking on production from unproved pass catchers who have performed well in limited sample sizes. Joe Douglas signed Breshad Perriman, who had a very productive end to his 2019 season, to man one of the outside receiver spots. He also drafted Denzel Mims out of Baylor to presumably also start as a rookie. Jamison Crowder broke out last year as an above-average slot receiver, and Chris Herndon missed virtually all of last season but played well in his rookie season as a tight end. The receiver depth lacks standout names, with Vyncint Smith as the presumptive WR4, but the tight end depth is strong, with Ryan Griffin returning on a multi-year extension.
 
Offensive Line - Weakness
The Jets entirely remade their offensive line, and while each position is arguably improved on paper, it is still young and unproven. Most significantly, at LT, Joe Douglas drafted Mekhi Becton at 11, who is already a really good run blocker with the tools to grow in pass pro. Douglas also re-signed Alex Lewis, who is probably serviceable but below average, to start at left guard, but he could face competition from 4th-round rookie Cameron Clark. The Jets signed Connor McGovern to start at C, and while he should solidify the position for at least the next two years, he is not extraordinary. Right guard shapes up to be an open competition between incumbent Brian Winters, who is serviceable when healthy, and new acquisition Greg Van Roten. At RT, the Jets signed George Fant, who played mostly as a swing tackle or sixth offensive lineman for Seattle to compete with Chuma Edoga.
 
Defensive Line - Weakness
This is a tough pill to swallow for Jets fans, but the days of Muhammad Wilkerson, and Leonard Williams are over. At EDGE, the Jets have arguably the worst duo in the NFL with Jordan Jenkins and Tarell Basham presumably playing as starters, with rookie 3rd-round pick Jabari Zuniga and 2019 UDFA Kyle Phillips playing rotationally and John Franklin-Myers competing for snaps. Starting on the interior, the Jets have Quinnen Williams, the former third-overall selection who notched 2.5 sacks and 4 TFLs in his rookie season and was arrested in March on a weapons charge, and Henry Anderson, a nimble interior penetrator who had a breakout year in 2018 before regressing to the mean in 2019. Nathan Shepherd, Steve McLendon, and Foley Fatukasi should all see plenty of tread on the DL, as well.
 
Linebackers - Strength
The Jets had a nearly-comical number of injuries at off-ball linebacker last season, but on paper, the unit appears very strong. CJ Mosley, 2019 FA acquisition, missed almost the entire 2019 season with a groin injury, but when healthy, he is one of the best linebackers in football. Avery Williamson, who projects to start across Mosley in 2020, is a good run defender but missed the entire 2019 year with a torn ACL. Returning starter Neville Hewitt, cheap FA acquisition Patrick Onwuasor, and promising second-year player Blake Cashman could each play in various base or subpackage roles, in addition to on special teams.
 
Secondary - Neutral
Similar to the defensive line, the Jets secondary is a tale of two halves, in this case safeties and cornerbacks. At safety, the Jets have reigning All Pro Jamal Adams and solid free safety Marcus Maye returning, in addition to the versatile 3rd-round pick Ashtyn Davis out of Cal. Outside cornerback is in flux, as new acquisition Pierre Desir should lock up one spot, while Arthur Maulet, Quincy Wilson, 5th-round rookie Bryce Hall, and Blessuan Austin could compete for the other starting spot, with last year's breakout player Brian Poole locking up the slot. Nate Hairston and Shyheim Carter could compete for other key depth roles in the secondary.
 
Special Teams - Strength/Neutral
At kicker, the Jets had a rocky performance last year, so they brought in Brett Maher to compete with last year's starter Sam Ficken. At punter, the Jets have rookie Braden Mann, who handles kickoffs and whose 47.1 yards per punt would have ranked 4th in the NFL last year. At longsnapper, Thomas Hennessy is an asset in coverage and will return in 2020. Additionally, WR Vyncint Smith and FS Matthias Farley project to play major roles in kick coverage next season, with other jobs up for grabs.
 

Schedule Predictions

Week 1 at Buffalo: L - Other than the loss of Shaq Lawson and the additions of Stefon Diggs and AJ Epenesa, the Bills mostly had a quiet offseason, though with encouraging performances from young players in Josh Allen, Ed Oliver, Tremaine Edmunds, and Tre'Davious White and with the team coming off of a 10-6 campaign, there’s a lot about which to be enthusiastic in Buffalo. The Bills, who went 10-6 last year and made the playoffs, beat the Jets here in their home opener. Record: 0-1
 
Week 2 vs San Francisco: L - The 49ers took a huge leap in 2019, marching through the NFC and into the Super Bowl, and the additions of Trent Williams, Brandon Aiyuk, and Javon Kinlaw should keep them competitive in 2020. If Jamal Adams is on the team, he might be able to get in George Kittle's way, but nevertheless the 49ers should be one of the NFL's most well-rounded football teams, and so it would be difficult to envision the Jets winning in week 2. Record: 0-2
 
Week 3 at Indianapolis: L - The Colts had a big free agency period, signing Philip Rivers and adding DeForest Buckner in a trade while retaining their entire offensive line. While the Jets went 7-9 last season, just like the Colts did, the Colts probably are the favorites to win at home, especially with the advantage that the Indianapolis offensive line should have over the New York pass rush. Record: 0-3
 
Week 4 vs Denver: L - While the Broncos went 7-9 last season, they have championship aspirations in 2020, as they went 4-1 in Drew Lock's starts last year and added Melvin Gordon, Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, and Albert Okwuegbunam to a group of weapons already containing Philip Lindsay, Courtland Sutton, Noah Fant, and Jeff Heuerman while retaining defensive stars in Von Miller, AJ Johnson, and Justin Simmons. Though it is a home game, the Jets should be seen as heavy underdogs in week 4. Record: 0-4
 
Week 5 vs Arizona: W - The Cardinals look poised to improve in 2020, with the additions of DeAndre Hopkins, Jordan Phillips, and Isaiah Simmons, but questions remain with the offensive line and defensive line, in addition to with the poor playcalling from Kingsbury and Joseph at times during last season. This could be a key game for Quinnen Williams, Henry Anderson, Steve McLendon, and the interior defensive line to feast on a poor Cardinals' interior offensive line and for Gregg Williams to outmatch Kingsbury and Murray at home. Record: 1-4
 
Week 6 at LA Chargers: L - The Chargers revamped their team this offseason, adding Justin Herbert in the draft and surrounding him with Bryan Bulaga, Trai Turner, and Joe Reed on offense and Kenneth Murray and Chris Harris on defense. Though the quarterback situation is in flux in LA, it’s unlikely that the Jets will go on the road to the West Coast and beat an otherwise well-rounded team. Record: 1-5
 
Week 7 vs Buffalo: W - The Jets have beat the Bills at least once in 8 of the last 10 seasons, and so the Jets should have a shot to win one at home. Record: 2-5
 
Week 8 at Kansas City: L - The Chiefs has a pretty quiet offseason aside from locking up Patrick Mahomes and Chris Jones on long-term deals, as they added Mike Remmers, Taco Charlton, Willie Gay, and Lucas Niang while losing Stefen Wisniewski, Emmanuel Ogbah, Reggie Ragland, and Kendall Fuller. Despite the offseason losses, Reid and Mahomes should easily be able to storm past the Jets at home. Record: 2-6
 
Week 9 vs New England: W - The Patriots took a hit this offseason, obviously headlined by the loss of Tom Brady but also supplemented by key defensive losses in Kyle Van Noy, Jamie Collins, and Duron Harmon in addition to a general lack of attention towards improving a lackluster wide receiver corps. The Jets haven't beat the Patriots since their week 16 overtime thriller in 2015, but a November home game could be a good chance to do it, as the Patriots don't really possess the weapons to exploit issues with the Jets' cornerbacks nor the pass rush to exploit issues with the Jets' offensive line. Record: 3-6
 
Week 10 at Miami: W - The Dolphins had a very poor 2019, finishing 5-11 with the 27th-ranked total offense and the 30th-ranked total defense, and as such they had an incredibly busy offseason, adding Matt Breida, Ereck Flowers, Ted Karras, Kyle Van Noy, Shaq Lawson, Emmanuel Ogbah, Elandon Roberts, and Byron Jones in free agency and Tua Tagovailoa, Austin Jackson, Noah Igbinoghene, Robert Hunt, Raekwon Davis, and Solomon Kindley in the draft. However, in Miami before the bye would be a good chance for Adam Gase to get a revenge game win, seeing as the Dolphins still have weaknesses all over their roster including quarterback, offensive tackle, and edge rusher. Record: 4-6
 
WEEK 11 BYE
 
Week 12 vs Miami: L - With all their offseason additions, the Dolphins figure to match up fairly evenly with the Jets in 2020, and so it's likely that the two teams will split the season series. Record: 4-7
 
Week 13 vs Las Vegas: W - The Raiders had a very busy offseason, adding Jason Witten, Maliek Collins, Nick Kwiatkoski, Prince Amukamara, and Damarious Randall in free agency and Henry Ruggs, Damon Arnette, Lynn Bowden, Bryan Edwards, and Amik Robertson in the draft with their only major losses being Darryl Worley and Karl Joseph. At home against a West Coast opponent, the Jets would be wise to take advantage of some of the Raiders’ weaknesses in this game, including inexperience at wide receiver, edge rusher, linebacker, and cornerback. Record: 5-7
 
Week 14 at Seattle: L - The Seahawks went 11-5 last season and were one play away from securing the top seed in the NFC, so their offseason was pretty quiet, mostly focusing on the offensive line with the losses of Germain Ifedi, DJ Fluker, and George Fant and the additions of free agents Brandon Shell, BJ Finney, and Cedric Ogbuehi, and draft pick Damien Lewis. Pete Carroll is one of the best coaches in football today, and in this late-season matchup at Seattle he’ll have the personnel advantage against the Jets offense, which lacks talented weapons and blockers. Record: 5-8
 
Week 15 at LA Rams: L - The Rams regressed to 9-7 last year and then had a difficult offseason, losing Todd Gurley, Brandin Cooks, Dante Fowler, and Nickell Robey-Coleman, with their only major addition being A’Shawn Robinson. The 2020 Rams are not the Super Bowl Rams of the past, but with both McVay and Goff still on board, the Rams have to be favorites to take this late-season home game against the Jets. Record: 5-9
 
Week 16 vs Cleveland: W - The Browns had a busy offseason, hiring head coach Kevin Stefanski, losing Greg Robinson, Joe Schobert, and Damarious Randall, signing Austin Hooper, Jack Conklin, Andrew Billings, Karl Joseph, and Damarious Randall, and drafting Jedrick Wills, Grant Delpit, and Jacob Phillips. Despite these additions, however, Cleveland still has a new, inexperienced offensive playcaller at head coach and a question mark at quarterback, and Gregg Williams generally handles quarterbacks who struggle with post-snap reads well with disguised coverages and aggressive blitz packages. Record: 6-9
 
Week 17 at New England: L - With the expanded playoffs, the Patriots have an even greater chance to make the postseason this year than they otherwise would, so this late-season match in Foxborough could be a consequential, divisional-revenge game for New England. Record: 6-10
 
Final Record: 6-10
While I firmly believe that the Jets improved significantly this offseason, especially in terms of the offensive line and getting players back from injury, this year’s schedule is substantially more difficult that last year’s, which could result in less games in the wins column for 2020. Last year, the Jets closed out the back-half of their season going 6-2 playing against rookie Daniel Jones, rookie Dwayne Haskins, Carr, Dalton, Fitzpatrick, Lamar Jackson, rookie Devlin Hodges, and Matt Barkley, and this year the Jets have to play both the AFC West and the NFC West, which is a jump in competition level.
 

Training Camp Battles

WR #2: Denzel Mims vs Vyncint Smith
Jets fans would hope that starting receiver isn’t much of a battle, but since rookie wideouts traditionally are been known to take longer learning the playbook, the other receiver spot next to Perriman and Crowder is in flux. Denzel Mims, the rookie receiver from Baylor, is the odds-on favorite to get a starting role and to play as a deep threat and red-zone threat in year one. However, if Mims proves to be too raw off the bat, the Jets could fall back on Vyncint Smith, who had 17 receptions last year and showed his value as a deep threat.
 
Left Guard: Alex Lewis vs Cameron Clark
Following a 2019 season where Alex Lewis spot-started in place of Kelechi Osemele, the Jets rewarded him with a 3 year, $18.6 MM contract, and he goes into 2020 as the favorite to start at left guard once again. With that being said, the possibility exists that rookie tackle Cameron Clark out of Charlotte will kick inside and compete at left guard.
 
Right Guard: Brian Winters vs Greg Van Roten
After a 2019 season in which Brian Winters went down with a shoulder injury in week 10, many expected the Jets to cut him, but he instead will return as the incumbent starter at right guard. However, new free agent acquisition Greg Van Roten could switch to the right side and compete against Winters to start.
 
Right Tackle: George Fant vs Chuma Edoga
After the Jets had a poor performance form their offensive line in 2019, GM Joe Douglas brought in competition at all position, including at right tackle. George Fant, former Seattle swing tackle, is the presumptive favorite to land the starting job, despite his lack of starting experience. Chuma Edoga could compete as well, but his performance in both run blocking and pass pro was so shaky last year that he needed extensive help from tight ends.
 
EDGE #2: Tarell Basham vs Kyle Phillips vs Jabari Zuniga vs John Franklin-Myers
The Jets started Jordan Jenkins and Tarell Basham at edge rusher last season, so it was somewhat of a shock to see them add absolutely no outside talent until the middle of the third round, and so now Gregg Williams and the defensive staff are forced to make the pitiful decision between starting Basham, Kyle Phillips, Jabari Zuniga, or John Franklin-Myers across from Jenkins. Basham, who the Jets claimed off waivers in 2018, is the odds-on favorite to start once again after only notching 2 sacks and 4 quarterback hits in 54% of the Jets' defensive snaps. Kyle Phillips, the second-year player from Tennessee who was a five-star high-school recruit, is a thicker lineman best suited to play on run downs who could push for starting snaps as well. Jabari Zuniga, 3rd-round rookie out of Florida, is a third contender for the starting job, but his interior versatility and similarity to Jenkins in terms of his stiffness and poor pad level could suggest the Jets envision him in more of a rotational role. Franklin-Myers, a large and athletic pass rusher who missed last season with an undisclosed injury after the Jets claimed him off waivers from the Rams, could compete for a large snap share with a strong camp.
 
DT #2: Henry Anderson vs Nathan Shepherd
This battle won't get much media coverage, as both Anderson and Shepherd project to get plenty of tread on the New York defensive line, but nevertheless the two will compete in training camp for the upper hand in the snap count. Henry Anderson, incumbent starter and penetrating defensive lineman, saw his production fall off a bit in 2019, in part due to a nagging shoulder injury. Nathan Shepherd saw his role increase in the back half of the season after a suspension sidelined him from weeks two through eight, and with a good camp, he could establish himself as the primary nimble-footed complement to the heftier, run-stopping trio of Williams, McLendon, and Fatukasi.
 
CB #2: Arthur Maulet vs Quincy Wilson vs Bryce Hall vs Blessuan Austin
The outside cornerback spot across from Pierre Desir is probably the most open starting battle on the team. Arthur Maulet, the undersized but physical cornerback out of Memphis, is probably the favorite to start after outplaying Johnson and Roberts last season to win the left cornerback job. Quincy Wilson, the former second-round pick, should be Maulet's primary competition after the Jets traded a draft pick to acquire him from the Colts. Bryce Hall, the rookie 5th-round corner from Virginia, is a darkhorse to start as well if he is healthy to start the season. Blessuan Austin, the former 6th-round pick, might factor into the competition, but he'll have to climb out of Gregg Williams' doghouse after reacting poorly to his week-16 benching last season.
 
Kicker: Sam Ficken vs Brett Maher
Sam Ficken, who hit 70% of his kicks last season, will compete with Brett Maher, who hit 67% of his kicks last season, for the starting kicker job, but neither candidate should have to handle kickoffs with rookie punter Braden Mann in the fold.
 

Offensive and Defensive Schemes

Adam Gase, head coach and offensive playcaller for the Jets, runs a zone-blocking, short-passing offense mostly out of 11 personnel while also mixing in some 2-TE sets. In the run game, Gase is willing to run gap concepts based on his offensive line personnel, but he favors his inside zone running playcalls. In the pass game, Gase likes to stack his receivers, throw checkdowns, split his backs out wide, and utilize the sidelines.
 
Gregg Williams, defensive coordinator for the Jets, runs a 3-4 hybrid, blitz-heavy defense with an emphasis on zone coverage. In the front seven, Williams has used both 3-4 and 4-3 base packages, though he mostly uses nickel fronts and one-gapping penetration schemes. In the secondary, Williams stresses MOFC shells, press-zone concepts, and disguised coverages and blitzes.

Lachlan Edwards P Free Agent
 
The Jets reshaped their weapons for Sam Darnold this offseason, losing three veterans and bringing in a number of free agents and draft picks. GM Joe Douglas opted not to re-sign RB Bilal Powell who the Jets drafted in 2011, and he remains a free agent. Most significantly, Douglas allowed his top offensive weapon in WR Robby Anderson to walk to Carolina on a 2 year, $20.0 MM deal, creating a void at outside receiver. The team has also not re-signed WR Demaryius Thomas, who filled in for Quincy Enunwa last season, and he remains a free agent.
 
The biggest change that the Jets made to their personnel this offseason was along the offensive line, and as such there were a number of veteran casualties. LT Kelvin Beachum started for the Jets from 2017 to 2019, but he seems to have regressed, and he remains a free agent. The Jets also let C Ryan Kalil go, who unretired to snap for Sam Darnold last offseason but disappointed and got injured, and he remains a free agent. RG Tom Compton was forced into action last season with the injury to Brian Winters, and he, as is characteristic of his NFL career thus far, struggled massively in run blocking and pass pro, but he projects to compete anyway next year for San Francisco on a 1 year deal. Joe Douglas and Adam Gase never expressed interest in RT Brandon Shell for the long term, benching him for the raw Chuma Edoga early in 2019, so it was not a surprise to see the Jets let Shell go to start for Seattle on a 2 year contract.
 
The Jets mostly kept their defense in tact this offseason, only losing two key pieces. EDGE Brandon Copeland left for New England on a 1 year contract, which is not a surprising location, as Copeland is a great utility player, functioning as a rush linebacker, an off-ball linebacker, and a core special teamer for the Jets in 2019. Similarly, Joe Douglas has not re-signed the versatile FS Rontez Miles, who has played single-high safety, box safety, and a key special teams role during his seven-year Jets tenure, and he remains a free agent.
 
The Jets cut CB Trumaine Johnson, which was virtually a no-brainer after two injury-plagued seasons in which his lack of speed was frequently exposed. The only real decision was whether to cut Johnson immediately, which would have resulted in a $12.0 MM dead cap hit in 2020, or to designate Johnson as a post-June 1 cut, which would have resulted in a $4.0 MM dead cap hit in 2020 and a $8.0 MM dead cap hit in 2021. Joe Douglas opted for the latter, meaning that the Jets saved a total of $11.0 MM by cutting Johnson in 2020. Grade: A
 
The Jets cut FS Darryl Roberts in mid-March. The Jets had high hopes for Roberts following the 2018 season, prompting them to sign him to a three-year contract with an out after one year. Roberts had a rocky first eight games of the season at cornerback before injuring his calf and being benched in favor of Maulet, Austin, and Canady. Roberts remained a special-teams asset and good safety depth in December, but ultimately GM Joe Douglas decided he could cut Roberts, save $6.0 MM, and look elsewhere for a replacement. Grade: B
 
Players Signed
Player Position Old Team Length Salary
Joe Flacco QB Denver 1 year $1.5 MM
David Fales QB NY Jets 1 year $0.9 MM
Frank Gore RB Buffalo 1 year $1.1 MM
Breshad Perriman WR Tampa Bay 1 year $6.5 MM

James Burgess ILB NY Jets 1 year $0.9 MM
Pierre Desir CB Indianapolis 1 year $4.0 MM

Quincy Wilson CB Indianapolis 1 year $1.3 MM
Bennett Jackson FS NY Jets 1 year $0.7 MM
Brian Poole DB NY Jets 1 year $5.0 MM
 
Jets GM Joe Douglas used to work in Baltimore, where he was supposedly very influential in the decision to draft QB Joe Flacco, so this signing is far from surprising. While Joe Flacco may be trending down in his play, $1.5 MM feels like a bargain for the chance at solid veteran insurance for Sam Darnold. However, his neck surgery will supposedly keep him out for the opening of the season. Grade: B
 
After the draft, the Jets signed RB Frank Gore to a 1 year, $1.1 MM deal to ensure that he will play his 16th season in green and white. Gore is a physical back who played under Jets HC Adam Gase in San Francisco in 2008 and in Miami in 2018. Gore can take some of the pressure off of starting RB Le'Veon Bell in 2020 as the Jets move towards a "runningback by committee" system. Grade: B
 
The Jets-Ravens connection proved strong again with the signing of WR Breshad Perriman. Perriman was a first-round pick for the Ravens in 2015 while current Jets' Director of Player Personnel Chad Alexander was with Baltimore, and though he never really produced at a high level there, he had a resurgence in 2019 for the Buccaneers. Especially in November and December, where he performed at a 1000-yard rate projected over a whole season, Perriman proved to be a legitimate outside option across from Mike Evans with Chris Godwin in the slot. Perriman is a big, athletic receiver who projects to be well-worth the $6.5 MM deal to start on the outside. Grade: B
 
Yet again, the Jets signed a former Ravens player, re-signing LG Alex Lewis, who played 2016 through 2018 with Baltimore before GM Joe Douglas traded for him in the 2019 offseason. Lewis stepped in for Kelechi Osemele last season and was a serviceable starter. Lewis is good in pass pro, versatile, and a good zone fit as a guard. However, Lewis could touch up on his penalties and overall run blocking for 2020. GM Joe Douglas only gave Lewis a 3 year, $18.6 MM deal which actually has an out after 1 year, which seems like a solid price to get another look at a 28-year-old guard who might be part of the team's future. Grade: B
 
The Jets' biggest free-agent singing in 2020 in terms of guaranteed money was former Broncos' C Connor McGovern at $18.0 MM. McGovern is an athletic lineman with experience at guard and center. He is a powerful center, and that serves him well in the run game. However, McGovern has a weak anchor and inconsistent pad level and leverage in the pass game. For this reason, despite the need at center, Joe Douglas' decision to commit two years to a center who is, perhaps, below average in pass pro is worthy of scrutiny. Grade: C
 
The biggest heavily-scrutinized acquisition that the Jets made in 2020 was probably signing former Seahawks RT George Fant to a 3 year, $27.3 MM contract. Fant functioned primarily as a swing tackle and as a sixth offensive lineman in Seattle, as he could not see the field as a starter over Germain Ifedi. Fant remains a very raw pass protector in terms of his anchor and the fluidity of his kickslide, and his ability in the run is only theoretically a strength in zone blocking. While Fant's contract has an out in 2021, it is a bit strange to see him making a similar salary to Bryan Bulaga and Halapoulvaati Vaitai. Grade: D
 
The Jets were patient in re-signing their own free agents, which probably helped get good value retaining EDGE Jordan Jenkins. Despite notching 15 combined sacks over the past two seasons, Jenkins only got $3.9 MM from the Jets. The sack number is a bit misleading, though, due to a high quantity of "coverage sacks" and a relatively modest pressure rate. However, Jenkins is a fine run defender, and he'll slot in as EDGE #1 again for the bets in 2020. Grade: B
 
The Jets also acquired a former Raven on defense with LB Patrick Onwuasor, and they only paid $2.0 MM to bring him in. Onwuasor is an undersized linebacker but a good linear athlete, and while he struggles reading offensive cues and getting off of blocks to stop the run, he is a really good coverage player with the ability to get home as a pass rusher. Onwuasor has played next to CJ Mosley before, and he could potentially contribute in subpackage and base 4-3 looks, in addition to in a depth capacity and on special teams. Grade: B
 
With the cuts of Trumaine Johnson and Darryl Roberts, GM Joe Douglas decided to fill a starting cornerback spot with former Colts CB Pierre Desir on a 1 year, prove-it deal. Desir lacks longspeed, but he is a long, physical corner with decent short-area quickness. However, Desir lacks refinement in press and zone. With that said, $4.0 MM is a reasonable price to get a fill-in outside cornerback in 2020. Grade: B
 
This signing probably didnt get much national coverage, but re-signing CB Arthur Maulet could pay huge dividends for the Jets in 2020. In 2019, Trumaine Johnson and Darryl Roberts failed to hit expectations, forcing Maulet, Nate Hairston, and rookie Blessuan Austin into the outside cornerback rotation. Maulet is the only one of that group who was not benched for performance reasons. For a mere $0.9 MM, retaining a guy in Maulet who is familiar with the defense who will compete to start in 2020 is seemingly a no-brainer. Grade: A
 
Instead of making another draft choice, the Jets decided to trade pick 211 for former Colts CB Quincy Wilson. Wilson, a former second-round pick, was a raw prospect coming out of Florida, and his penalties and lack of zone instincts followed him to the pros and led to his benching. However, Wilson is a big, long, and athletic corner, and at only 23 years of age, it makes sense that GM Joe Douglas wants to bring him on board to compete in an iffy cornerback room. Grade: C
 
This signing went somewhat under-the-radar, but Jets fans were thrilled when the team retained DB Brian Poole to man the slot on a 1 year, $5.0 MM contract. Poole is a good run defender with an ability to rush the passer, and he had a career year in coverage in 2019. Brian Poole is a good fit for Gregg Williams' defense, so retaining him to start in 2020 for a mere $5.0 MM seems to be a good value. Grade: B
 

Draft

Round Number Pos Player School
1 11 LT Mekhi Becton Louisville
2 59 WR Denzel Mims Baylor
3 68 FS Ashtyn Davis California
3 79 EDGE Jabari Zuniga Florida
4 120 RB La'Mical Perine Florida
4 125 QB James Morgan FIU
4 129 LT Cameron Clark Charlotte
5 158 CB Bryce Hall Virginia
6 191 P Braden Mann Texas A&M
 
The eleventh pick, Louisville T Mekhi Becton, was my favorite acquisition that the Jets made during the 2020 offseason. While there were other options on the board, namely Tristan Wirfs, Henry Ruggs, and Ceedee Lamb, that the Jets presumably could have considered, Becton was the exact player I thought the Jets should take when he fell to 11. The first thing that stands out about Becton is his massive size, as he's 6'7", 364 lbs, with a monstrous 83-inch wingspan. Becton, however, is much more than a heavy lineman, as he defies the norm with his exceptional 5.1-flat movement skills. Becton is a hulking run blocker who is inexperienced but a fluid mover in pass pro. Becton projects to replace Kelvin Beachum and slide in at left tackle immediately in his rookie season. Grade: A
 
Wanting to add more picks to build the Jets in his image in his first year as GM, Joe Douglas opted to move down from 48 to 59 in the second round. This was a costly move, as it caused the Jets to miss out on AJ Epenesa and Darrell Taylor, but the Jets managed to grab a falling Senior Bowl standout in Baylor WR Denzel Mims. Mims is a height-weight-speed freak with good length, hands, and run-blocking toughness. Mims should slot in as a starting outside receiver across from Breshad Perriman in year one. Grade: B
 
The Jets' first third-round pick of 2020 was a real surprise to many fans, as although the team already had arguably the best safety tandem in football with Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye, the Jets drafted California FS Ashytn Davis with the 68th-overall draft selection. Davis is a freak athlete who played single-high safety, box safety, and even slot cornerback at Cal and would almost definitely have been drafted significantly higher but for teams' inability to medically check his groin post-surgery. It's possible that Gregg Williams will utilize Davis as a big nickel defender this year, but this selection could also give the Jets flexibility if Marcus Maye, who is a free agent in 2021, or Jamal Adams, with whom the Jets are supposedly far apart on a long-term contract, depart. Grade: B
 
Despite having a starting EDGE tandem consisting of Jordan Jenkins and Tarell Basham and losing Brandon Copeland to New England, the Jets did not add outside talent to the position group before the draft, forcing GM Joe Douglas to pick Florida EDGE Jabari Zuniga at 79 overall. Zuniga is a good linear athlete with a decent ability to set the edge and with some interior versatility, and he could maybe project to replace Jordan Jenkins as a starter in 2021. However, Zuniga struggles with stiff hips and slow reaction time at the snap, and plus he missed most of the 2019 season with ankle injuries. The Jets probably hit the right position with Zuniga, who should factor into the pass-rush rotation with Jenkins, Basham, and 2019 UDFA Kyle Phillips, but it's really hard to justify drafting Zuniga with guys like Jonathan Greenard, Terrell Lewis, and DJ Wonnum still on the board. Grade: C
 
With his first day-3 selection as GM, Joe Douglas chose Florida RB La'Mical Perine. Perine is a physical runner with some receiving versatility out of the backfield. However, Perine doesn't really offer very much in terms of speed or vision, and drafting a RB instead of going offensive line, pass rush, receiver, or cornerback when Le'Veon Bell was already in the fold was a curious move. Grade: D
 
The second of the Jets' fourth-round picks probably stirred up the most intrigue, as most casual fans probably didn't expect the Jets to draft a quarterback. With that said, the Jets have gone a combined 0-6 over the past two seasons in games that Darnold did not start, and at this time David Fales was slated to be the backup quarterback, so drafting FIU QB James Morgan in the fourth round, which I thought was a value anyway, was a good choice. Morgan is a thick quarterback with a live arm with developmental quarterback potential. Grade: B
 
With their third pick in the fourth round, the Jets chose a player with the potential to start soon on the offensive line in Charlotte T Cameron Clark. Clark is a powerful lineman who started at left tackle in his rSo, rJr, and rSr seasons and has good short-area quickness despite his 5.29 forty. Some have floated Cameron Clark as a potential convert to guard for the Jets due to his sloppy pass-pro footwork. Grade: B
 
The Jets went corner in round 5, taking Virginia CB Bryce Hall at 158 overall. Hall is a long, tall corner who moves well, has zone instincts, and contributes in the run game. However, Hall's struggles in press and off-man coverage schemes probably project him better as a safety in the NFL rather than as a corner, which doesn't seem to be a need with Adams, Maye, and Davis already on the roster, and Hall's ankle injury prevented him from working out at the Combine, leaving teams in a state of uncertainty about his health and his testing numbers. Grade: C
 
With their sixth-round pick, the Jets went special teams with Texas A&M P Braden Mann. Mann has a big leg and can handle kickoff duties. Mann projects to replace Lachlan Edwards, but this may have been a tad high for a punter. Grade: C
 
The Jets had an intriguing undrafted free agent class with a number of guys who warranted day-3 draft consideration, but two guys that I liked pre-draft stood out as being worth mentioning. Georgia WR Lawrence Cager is a physical receiver at the line of scrimmage who will attempt to make the team as a redzone threat. Alabama DB Shyheim Carter played the STAR role in Nick Saban's defense, and he proved his versatility as a college approximation of a subpackage linebacker, a nickel corner, a box safety, and even a high safety, so he'll vie to make the team as a versatile depth defensive back and as a special-teams ace.
 

Other Offseason News

After tensions flared at the trade deadline last season, SS Jamal Adams expressed his frustrations with a lack of a contract extension on social media before supposedly requesting a trade in June. However, according to Connor Hughes at The Athletic, the Jets still hope to sign Adams to a long-term contract. Reportedly, over half of the teams in the NFL have expressed interest in adding the defensive star, but the Dallas Cowboys have gotten the most traction as a potential trade partner, with RT La'El Collins and WR Michael Gallup coming up as potential trade pieces. Jamal Adams is still on his rookie contract for 2020, and the Jets accepted his fifth-year option for 2021.
 
Also, this isn't really news, but former Jets' All-Pro CB Darrelle Revis continued his spat with 49ers' All-Pro CB Richard Sherman, culminating in this unusual Tweet:
3 facts here.
@RSherman_25
•I’m more handsome than him according to women.
•I’m better at corner than him according to everyone.
•Shutdown corners are paid more than Zone 3 corners which I’m currently still am today.

Position Group Strengths and Weaknesses

QB - Neutral/Weakness
Jets fans aren't going to love this one, but Sam Darnold is arguably still a bottom-third passer going into 2020. Darnold has been surrounded by a poor supporting cast over the past two years, including a turnstile of receivers across Robby Anderson with drop issues and linemen with pass-pro issues, but he certainly has not dominated like other young quarterbacks such as Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson, and Carson Wentz. The Jets have a good group behind Darnold, though, including Joe Flacco, who said he won't be ready for week 1, and James Morgan, a fourth-round rookie out of FIU.
 
Backfield - Strength
Le'Veon Bell, who is making $15.5 MM this season, is an all-around back in terms of running between the tackles, receiving, and pass protecting. The Jets also signed the ageless wonder Frank Gore to take some of the pressure off of Bell. Joe Douglas also drafted La'Mical Perine to contribute in the backfield.
 
Pass Catchers - Neutral/Weakness
In 2020, the Jets are banking on production from unproved pass catchers who have performed well in limited sample sizes. Joe Douglas signed Breshad Perriman, who had a very productive end to his 2019 season, to man one of the outside receiver spots. He also drafted Denzel Mims out of Baylor to presumably also start as a rookie. Jamison Crowder broke out last year as an above-average slot receiver, and Chris Herndon missed virtually all of last season but played well in his rookie season as a tight end. The receiver depth lacks standout names, but the tight end depth is strong, with Ryan Griffin returning on a multi-year extension.
 
Offensive Line - Weakness
The Jets entirely remade their offensive line, and while each position is arguably improved on paper, it is still young and unproven. Most significantly, at LT, Joe Douglas drafted Mekhi Becton at 11, who is already a really good run blocker with the tools to grow in pass pro. Douglas also re-signed Alex Lewis, who is probably serviceable but below average, to start at left guard, but he could force competition from fourth-round rookie Cameron Clark. The Jets signed Connor McGovern to start at C, and while he should solidify the position for at least the last two years, he is not extraordinary. Right guard shapes up to be an open competition between incumbent Brian Winters, who is serviceable when healthy, and new acquisition Greg Van Roten. At RT, the Jets signed George Fant, who played mostly as a swing tackle or sixth offensive lineman for Seattle but certainly has the athletic ability to outperform Chuma Edoga from last year.
 
Defensive Line - Weakness
This might be surprising to the non-Jets fans, but the days of Muhammad Wilkerson, and Leonard Williams are over, and pressure from the defensive line probably won't come easily for Gang Green. At EDGE, the Jets have arguably the worst duo in the NFL with Jordan Jenkins and Tarell Basham presumably playing as starters, with rookie 3rd-round pick Jabari Zuniga and 2019 UDFA Kyle Phillips playing rotationally. Starting on the interior, the Jets have Quinnen Williams, the former third-overall selection who notched 2.5 sacks and 4 TFLs in his rookie season and was arrested in March on a weapons charge, and Henry Anderson, a nimble interior penetrator who had a breakout year in 2018 before coming back down to Earth in 2019. Nathan Shepherd, Steve McLendon, and Foley Fatukasi should all see plenty of tread on the DL, as well.
 
Linebackers - Strength
The Jets had a nearly-comical number of injuries at off-ball linebacker last season, but on paper, the unit appears very strong. CJ Mosley, 2019 FA acquisition, missed almost the entire 2019 season with a groin injury, but when healthy, he is one of the best linebackers in football. Avery Williamson, who projects to start across Mosley in 2020, is a good run defender but missed the entire 2019 year with a torn ACL. Returning starter Neville Hewitt, cheap FA acquisition Patrick Onwuasor, and promising second-year player Blake Cashman could each play in various base or subpackage roles, in addition to on special teams.
 
Secondary - Neutral
Similar to the defensive line, the Jets secondary is a tale of two halves, in this case safeties and cornerbacks. At safety, the Jets have reigning All Pro Jamal Adams and solid free safety Marcus Maye returning, in addition to the versatile 3rd-round pick Ashtyn Davis out of Cal. Outside cornerback is in flux, as new acquisition Pierre Desir should lock up one spot, while Arthur Maulet, Quincy Wilson, and Blessuan Austin could compete for the other starting spot, with last year's breakout player Brian Poole locking up the slot. Nate Hairston, Javelin Guidry, Shyheim Carter, and 5th-round rookie Bryce Hall could compete for other key depth roles in the secondary.
 
Special Teams - Strength/Neutral
At kicker, the Jets had a rocky performance last year, so they brought in Brett Maher, who hit 67% of his field goals last season, to compete with Sam Ficken, who hit 70% of his field goals last season. At punter, the Jets have rookie P Braden Mann, who handles kickoffs and whose 47.1 yards per punt would have ranked 4th in the NFL last year. At longsnapper, Thomas Hennessy is an asset in coverage and will return in 2020. Additionally, WR Vyncint Smith and FS Matthias Farley project to play major roles in kick coverage next season, with other jobs presumably up for grabs.
 

Schedule Predictions

Week 1 at Buffalo: L - Other than the loss of Shaq Lawson and the additions of Stephon Diggs and AJ Epenesa, the Bills mostly had a quiet offseason, though with encouraging performances from young players in Josh Allen, Ed Oliver, Tremaine Edmunds, and Tre'Davious White and coming off of a 10-6 campaign, there’s a lot about which to be enthusiastic in Buffalo. The Bills, who went 10-6 last year and made the playoffs, beat the Jets here in their home opener. Record: 0-1
 
Week 2 vs San Francisco: L - The 49ers took a huge leap in 2019, marching through the NFC and into the Super Bowl, and the additions of Brandon Aiyuk, Javon Kinlaw, and Trent Williams should keep them competitive in 2020. If Jamal Adams is on the team, he might be able to get in George Kittle's way, but nevertheless the 49ers should be one of the NFL's most well-rounded football teams, and it would be difficult to envision the Jets defeating them. Record: 0-2
 
Week 3 at Indianapolis: L - The Colts had a big free agency period, signing Philip Rivers and adding DeForest Buckner in a trade while retaining their entire offensive line. While the Jets went 7-9 last season, just like the Colts did, the Colts probably are the favorites to win at home, especially with the advantage the Indianapolis offensive line should have over the New York pass rush. Record: 0-3
 
Week 4 vs Denver: L - While the Broncos went 7-9 last season, they have championship aspirations in 2020, as they went 4-1 in Drew Lock's starts last year and added Melvin Gordon, Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, and Albert Okwuegbunam to a group of weapons already containing Philip Lindsay, Courtland Sutton, Noah Fant, and Jeff Heuerman while retaining defensive stars in Von Miller, AJ Johnson, and Justin Simmons. Though it is a home game, it's hard to imagine the Jets defeating the Broncos in 2020. Record: 0-4
 
Week 5 vs Arizona: W - The Cardinals look poised to improve in 2020, with the additions of DeAndre Hopkins, Jordan Phillips, and Isaiah Simmons, but questions remain with the offensive line and defensive line, in addition to with the poor playcalling from Kingsbury and Joseph at times during last season. This could be a key game for Quinnen Williams, Henry Anderson, Steve McLendon, and the interior defensive line to feast on a poor Cardinals' interior offensive line, and for Gregg Williams to outmatch Kingsbury and Murray at home. Record: 1-4
 
Week 6 at LA Chargers: L - The Chargers revamped their team this offseason, adding Justin Herbert in the draft and surrounding him with Bryan Bulaga, Trai Turner, and Joe Reed on offense, and Kenneth Murray and Chris Harris on defense. Though the quarterback situation is in flux in LA, it’s a bit hard to envision the Jets going on the road to the West Coast and beating an otherwise well-rounded team. Record: 1-5
 
Week 7 vs Buffalo: W - The Jets have beat the Bills at least once in 8 of the last 10 seasons, and so the Jets should have a good chance to win one at home. Record: 2-5
 
Week 8 at Kansas City: L - The Chiefs has a pretty quiet offseason aside from locking up Patrick Mahomes and Chris Jones on long-term deals, as they added Mike Remmers, Taco Charlton, Willie Gay, and Lucas Niang while losing Stefen Wisniewski, Emmanuel Ogbah, Reggie Ragland, and Kendall Fuller. Despite the offseason losses, Reid and Mahomes should easily be able to storm past the Jets at home. Record: 2-6
 
Week 9 vs New England: W - The Patriots took a hit this offseason, obviously headlined by the loss of Tom Brady but also supplemented by key defensive losses in Kyle Van Noy, Jamie Collins, and Duron Harmon in addition to a general lack of attention towards improving a lackluster wide receiver corps. The Jets haven't beat the Patriots since their week 16 overtime thriller in 2015, but a November home game could be a good chance to do it, as the Patriots don't really possess the weapons to exploit issues with the Jets' cornerbacks nor the pass rushers to exploit issues with the Jets' offensive line. Record: 3-6
 
Week 10 at Miami: W - The Dolphins had a very poor 2019, finishing 5-11 with the 27th-ranked total offense and the 30th-ranked total defense, and as such they had an incredibly busy offseason, adding Matt Breida, Ereck Flowers, Ted Karras, Kyle Van Noy, Shaq Lawson, Emmanuel Ogbah, Elandon Roberts, and Byron Jones in free agency and Tua Tagovailoa, Austin Jackson, Noah Igbinoghene, Robert Hunt, Raekwon Davis, and Solomon Kindley in the draft. However, in Miami before the bye would be a good chance for Adam Gase to get a revenge game win, seeing as the Dolphins still have weaknesses all over their roster including quarterback, offensive tackle, and edge rusher. Record: 4-6
 
WEEK 11 BYE
 
Week 12 vs Miami: L - With all their offseason additions, the Dolphins figure to match up fairly evenly with the Jets in 2020, and so it's likely that the two teams will split the season series. Record: 4-7
 
Week 13 vs Las Vegas: W - The Raiders had a very busy offseason, adding Jason Witten, Maliek Collins, Nick Kwiatkoski, Prince Amukamara, and Damarious Randall in free agency and Henry Ruggs, Damon Arnette, Lynn Bowden, Bryan Edwards, and Amik Robertson in the draft with their only major losses being Darryl Worley and Karl Joseph. At home against a West Coast opponent, the Jets would be wise to take advantage of some of the Raiders’ weaknesses in this game, including inexperience at wide receiver, edge rusher, linebacker, and cornerback. Record: 5-7
 
Week 14 at Seattle: L - The Seahawks went 11-5 last season and were one play away from securing the top seed in the NFC, so their offseason was pretty quiet, mostly focusing on the offensive line with the losses of Germain Ifedi, DJ Fluker, and George Fant and the additions of free agents Brandon Shell, BJ Finney, and Cedric Ogbuehi, and draft pick Damien Lewis. Pete Carroll is one of the best coaches in football today, and in this late-season matchup at Seattle he’ll have the personnel advantage against the Jets offense, which lacks talented weapons and blockers. Record: 5-8
 
Week 15 at LA Rams: L - The Rams regressed to 9-7 last year and then had a difficult offseason, losing Todd Gurley, Brandin Cooks, Dante Fowler, and Nickell Robey-Coleman, with their only major addition being A’Shawn Robinson. The 2020 Rams are not the Super Bowl Rams of the past, but with both McVay and Goff still on board, the Rams have to be favorites to take this late-season home game against the Jets. Record: 5-9
 
Week 16 vs Cleveland: W - The Browns had a busy offseason, hiring head coach Kevin Stefanski, losing Greg Robinson, Joe Schobert, and Damarious Randall, signing Austin Hooper, Jack Conklin, Andrew Billings, Karl Joseph, and Damarious Randall, and drafting Jedrick Wills, Grant Delpit, and Jacob Phillips. Despite these additions, however, Cleveland still has a new, inexperienced offensive playcaller at head coach and a question mark at quarterback, and Gregg Williams generally handles quarterbacks who struggle with post-snap reads well with disguised coverages and aggressive blitz packages. Record: 6-9
 
Week 17 at New England: L - With the expanded playoffs, the Patriots have an even greater chance to make the postseason this year than they otherwise would, so this late-season match in Foxborough could be a consequential, divisional-revenge game. Record: 6-10
 
Final Record: 6-10
While I firmly believe that the Jets improved significantly this offseason, especially in terms of the offensive line and getting players back from injury, this year’s schedule is substantially more difficult that last year’s, which could result in less games in the wins column for 2020. Last year, the Jets closed out the back-half of their season going 6-2 playing against rookie Daniel Jones, rookie Dwayne Haskins, Derek Carr, Andy Dalton, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Lamar Jackson, rookie Devlin Hodges, and Matt Barkley, and this year the Jets have to play both the AFC West and the NFC West, which is a huge jump in their level of competition.
 

Training Camp Battles to Watch

WR #2: Denzel Mims vs Vyncint Smith
Jets fans would hope that starting receiver isn’t much of a battle, but since rookie wideouts traditionally have been known to take longer learning the playbook, the other receiver spot next to Perriman and Crowder is in flux. Denzel Mims, the rookie receiver from Baylor, is the odds-on favorite to get a starting role and to play as a deep threat and red-zone threat in year one. However, if Mims proves too raw off the bat, the Jets could fall back on Vyncint Smith, who had 17 receptions last year and showed his value as a deep threat.
 
Left Guard: Alex Lewis vs Cameron Clark
Following a 2019 season where Alex Lewis spot-started in place of Kelechi Osemele, the Jets rewarded him with a 3 year, $18.6 MM contract, and he goes into 2020 as the favorite to start at left guard once again. With that being said, the possibility exists that rookie tackle Cameron Clark out of Charlotte will kick inside and compete at left guard.
 
Right Guard: Brian Winters vs Greg Van Roten
After a 2019 season in which Brian Winters went down with a shoulder injury in week 10, many expected the Jets to cut him, but he instead will return as the incumbent starter at right guard. However, new free agent acquisition Greg Van Roten could switch to the right side and compete against Winters to start.
 
Right Tackle: George Fant vs Chuma Edoga
After the Jets had a poor performance form their offensive line in 2019, GM Joe Douglas brought in competition at all position, including at right tackle. George Fant, former Seattle swing tackle, is the presumptive favorite to land the starting job, despite his lack of starting experience and struggles with pass-pro footwork. Chuma Edoga could compete as well, but his performance in both run blocking and pass pro was so shaky last year as a rookie that he needed extensive help from tight ends to prevent the right side from entirely becoming a liability.
 
EDGE #2: Tarell Basham vs Kyle Phillips vs Jabari Zuniga vs John Franklin-Myers
The Jets started Jordan Jenkins and Tarell Basham at edge rusher last season, so it was somewhat of a shock to see them add absolutely no outside talent until the middle of the third round, and so now Gregg Williams and his defensive staff are forced to make the pitiful decision between starting Basham, Kyle Phillips, Jabari Zuniga, or John Franklin-Myers across from Jenkins. Basham, who the Jets claimed off of waivers in 2018, is probably the odds-on favorite to start once again after notching 2 sacks and 4 quarterback hits in 54% of the Jets' defensive snaps. Kyle Phillips, the second-year player from Tennessee who was a five-star high-school recruit, is a thicker lineman best suited to play on run downs who could push for starting snaps as well. Jabari Zuniga, 3rd-round rookie out of Florida, is a third contender for the starting job, but his interior versatility and similarity to Jenkins in terms of his stiffness and poor pad level could suggest the Jets envision him in more of a rotational role. The wildcard in this battle is John Franklin-Myers, who was claimed by the Jets off of waivers from the Rams at the start of 2019 but who also notched a pair of sacks in his rookie year and is really explosive for his size.
 
DT #2: Henry Anderson vs Nathan Shepherd
This battle won't get much media coverage, as both Anderson and Shepherd project to get plenty of tread on the New York defensive line, but nevertheless the two will compete in training camp for the upper hand in the snap count. Henry Anderson, the penetrating defensive lineman, saw his production fall off a bit in 2019, in part due to a nagging shoulder injury and utilization in different fronts and roles. Nathan Shepherd saw his role increase in the back half of the season after a suspension saw his role increase in the back half of the season after a suspension sidelined him from weeks two through eight, and with a good camp, he could establish himself as the primary nimble-footed complement to the heftier, run-stopping trio of Quinnen Williams, Steve McLendon, and Foley Fatukasi.
 
CB #2: Arthur Maulet vs Quincy Wilson vs Bryce Hall vs Blessuan Austin
The outside cornerback spot across from Pierre Desir is probably the most open starting battle on the team. Arthur Maulet, the undersized but physical cornerback out of Memphis, is probably the favorite to start after outplaying Johnson and Roberts last season to win the left cornerback job. Quincy Wilson, the former second-round pick, should be Maulet's primary competition after the Jets traded a draft pick to acquire him from the Colts. Bryce Hall, the rookie fifth-round corner from Virginia, is a darkhorse to start as well if he is healthy to start the season. Blessuan Austin, the former sixth-round pick, might factor into the competition, but he'll have Williams' doghouse after reacting poorly to his week-16 benching.
 
Kicker: Sam Ficken vs Brett Maher
Sam Ficken, who hit 70% of his kicks last season, will compete with Brett Maher, who hit 67% of his kicks last season, for the starting kicker job, but neither candidate should have to handle kickoffs with rookie punter Braden Mann in the fold.
 

Offensive and Defensive Schemes

Adam Gase, head coach and offensive playcaller for the Jets, runs a zone blocking, short passing offense mostly out of 11 personnel while also mixing in some 2-TE sets. In the run game, Gase is willing to run gap concepts based on his offensive line personnel, but he certainly favors his inside zone running playcalls. In the pass game, Gase likes to stack his receivers, throw checkdowns, split his backs out wide, and utilize the sidelines.
 
Gregg Williams, defensive coordinator for the Jets, runs a 3-4 hybrid, blitz-heavy defense with an emphasis on zone coverage. In the front seven, Williams has used both 3-4 and 4-3 base packages, though he mostly uses nickel fronts and one-gapping penetration schemes. In the secondary, Williams stresses MOFC shells, press-zone concepts, and disguised coverages and blitzes.

2020.07.15 18:02 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of letters J-L of Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'

Below is a rundown of letters J-L of Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/).
I also wrote about letters D-F on July 5, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hlrba8/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_df_in_jeffrey/).
I posted letters G-I on July 13, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hqko0y/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_gi_in_jeffrey/). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.

Attended a party hosted by Sony Pictures with Epstein, although they are not pictured together (source: https://www.patrickmcmullan.com/search/?event=5b3ef4fb9f92906676446c21). In 2007, Ghislaine Maxwell threw an exclusive party (80 carefully selected guests) at her NYC townhouse to celebrate the opening of a new shop by designer Allegra Hicks (granddaughter-in-law of Earl Mountbatten, who you can read more about in my G-I Epstein thread under India Hicks’s name). One of the eighty guests was Julie Landlow, daughter of Linda and Mort.
Jarecki, Nancy & Andrew: Andrew is a filmmaker, co-founder of Moviefone, and was a producer on Catfish, the documentary that launched the popular MTV show. Andrew’s family was reportedly friends with Jeffrey Epstein. There is an EXCELLENT thread on the connections between the Jarecki family (especially Andrew and Nick’s father, Henry) and Epstein here (source: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1200044576947556352.html). Quick summary: Henry was born in Nazi Germany; flew on the Lolita Express; is an expert in psychotropic drugs; owns two islands in the British Virgin Islands; founded the first youth center in the British Virgin Islands; lived 2 miles from Epstein in NYC; owns and donates to many sketchy foundations, schools, and organizations; has donated at least $1 million to leftist organizations). Andrew’s wife Nancy created bettybeauty, a company that specializes in hair dye for your nether regions (not kidding).
Jarecki, Nick: The movie director brother of Andrew and son of Henry Jarecki (see link under Andrew & Nancy Jarecki for more info). Reportedly dated Courtney Love (also in Epstein’s ‘Black Book’) in 2015. Photographed with Ghislaine Maxwell at a Gucci party (source: https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/ghislaine-maxwell-and-nick-jarecki-attend-gucci-hosts-a-news-photo/591605562).

Johnson, Richard & Nadine: Nadine is a millionaire public relations guru. Nadine is a good friend of Ghislaine Maxwell’s. Some clients of Nadine Johnson include spirit cooking extraordinaire Marina Abramovic and hotelier Andre Balazs, good friend of Ghislaine. Richard is one of the most well-known gossip columnists and was the editor of Page Six for twenty-five years. There is a great thread detailing the Johnsons’ ties to the Clintons, Balazs, and others here (source: https://threader.app/thread/1162148078981394432). Basically, Richard Johnson is friendly with the Clintons and, as Page Six Editor, purposely did not report or downplayed stories on the Clintons and Nadine’s clients. He also took bribes. Considering Nadine is a good friend of Ghislaine, it would not be a stretch to assume that Richard could have buried stories on Maxwell and Epstein. I could spend 10 pages on the shady connections these two have.
Johnson, Lucy: Not enough info.
Jones, Ann & Mick: Mick is the guitarist of Foreigner, an immensely popular rock band in the ‘70s and ‘80s. His wife, Ann, is a jewelry designer, and friend of Ghislaine.

He worked as Special Project Officer for the U.S. Department of State under President John F. Kennedy and AG Robert F. Kennedy. He had tons of connections. His former maid accused him of sexual harassment in 2010 (source: https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/maid-harassment-suit-claims-ad-exec-leo-arthur-kelmenson-madman-pervy-mad-men-wannabe-article-1.156915). Kelmenson died less than two months after the story came out.
Kennedy Cuomo, Andrew & Kerry: Andrew is the current governor of New York. It’s no secret that Cuomo is willing to look the other way on sexual deviancy as long as he receives a payoff. Cuomo halted a probe into the handling of Harvey Weinstein’s case in New York after receiving $25,000 from Weinstein’s law firm (source: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/bjbqg4/andrew-cuomo-received-dollar25000-donation-from-harvey-weinsteins-law-firm). Andrew’s brother, CNN Host Chris Cuomo famously told viewers “not to get caught up in the intrigue of who Epstein’s friends are” (source: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2019/07/11/cnn_cuomo_lets_not_get_caught_up_in_the_intrigue_of_who_was_friends_with_jeffrey_epstein.html). Perhaps, he was covering for his brother. Kerry Kennedy is Cuomo’s ex-wife of fifteen years, the daughter of RFK, and a close friend of Ghislaine Maxwell. Supposedly, Kennedy provided Ghislaine with informal illegal advice (source: https://www.splicetoday.com/politics-and-media/the-nth-word-and-m-theory).

Bobby kept a sex journal detailing his conquests while he was married (source: https://nypost.com/2013/09/08/rfk-jr-s-sex-diary-of-adultery/). His ex-wife, Mary, committed “suicide” two years after their divorce. Before committing suicide, Mary told a friend that she “feared for her life” and Bobby told her that she “would be better off dead” (source: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3231043/How-serial-cheater-Bobby-Kennedy-Jr-strutted-family-home-exposing-private-parts-demanded-m-nage-trois-wife-Mary-went-public-Cheryl-Hines-telling-Mary-things-easier-killed-herself.html).
Kennedy, Ethel: Widow of RFK Sr. and mother of eleven, including Bobby Kennedy, Kerry Kennedy, and Joseph Kennedy II.
Kennedy, Jo: Joseph Kennedy II is the son of RFK Sr. and Ethel. Served in the House of Representatives from 1987-1999. In 1973, Joseph was convicted of negligent driving after paralyzing a young woman. He was fined $100.
Kennedy, Senator Edward: Brother of JFK and RFK, Ted Kennedy served as U.S. Senator of Massachusetts for 47 years. Besides politics, Ted is best known for the Chappaquiddick incident in which a young female speechwriter for RFK drowned to death when he lost control of his vehicle while driving across a bridge. He was charged with leaving the scene of an incident and given a two month suspended sentence. Ted was also notorious for his extramarital affairs. Senator Kennedy once hosted a party at his house attended by Bill Clinton and Lynn Forester de Rothschild. Rothschild wrote a letter to Clinton afterwards in which she mentions that they spoke about Epstein (source: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7283825/Jeffrey-Epstein-injured-jail-cell-following-possible-suicide-assault.html). It is unclear what was said or what Rothschild’s connection could possibly be.
Kersner, Sol: South African accountant and hotel and casino magnate who died of cancer in 2020. Kerzner was a close friend of Donald Trump. They even worked together to create The Palm, a man-made island off the coast of Dubai (source: https://www.ft.com/content/46393280-d9f9-11da-b7de-0000779e2340). Kerzner was also close friends with Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/sarah-ferguson-the-duchess-of-york-sol-kerzner-chairman-and-news-photo/83768272), Naomi Campbell (https://www.gettyimages.ca/detail/news-photo/naomi-campbell-and-sol-kerzner-pose-backstage-during-the-news-photo/82869744), and Bill Clinton (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8144647/As-Sol-Kerzner-dies-aged-84-RICHARD-KAY-looks-riotously-louche-life.html). Kerzner was very good friends with Nelson Mandela and built his casino resorts with Gerard Inzerillo, who you can read about in my G-I ‘Black Book’ thread.

Not only did Ghislaine serve as Director, but she was also a shareholder, along with the Rothschild family (source: https://nationalpost.com/news/world/in-hiding-for-years-epstein-accomplice-ghislaine-maxwell-spotted-in-l-a-burger-shop). If you click around the PDFs on this website (https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/05340072/filing-history), you can see everything. The 16 JUN 2006 PDF on page 3 shows you a list of Officers and shareholders of the company. Jemma Kidd has also attended charity events for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) (https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-beckham-nspcc-party-jemma-kidd-106882170.html).

Kissinger once said, “Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.” Kissinger served with Epstein on the Trilateral Commission. Kissinger has also been a member of the Bilderberg Group, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Aspen Institute, and Bohemian Grove. Long thought to be an advocate for a globalist New World Order, Kissinger is a scumbag of the highest order. His connections with Gates, the Clintons, Bush Sr. and Jr., the Rockefellers, and the Rothschilds are well-documented. If anyone here has ever done any research regarding the NWO, you have undoubtedly seen Kissinger’s name several times.

They are also partners with Fusion Educational Group (now Fusion Academy), which runs a chain of private secondary schools (https://www.leedsequity.com/news/articles/leeds-equity-partners-completes-investment-in-fusion-education-group). Former teacher Kris White, now the head of Fusion Academy in Palo Alto, allegedly told a student that he was in love with her and wrote her a note saying he was “obsessed” with her. (https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/07/12/teachers-named-in-presentation-high-sex-investigation-kept-working-as-bay-area-educators-for-years/). This story was just published on July 12, 2020. Hypothetically, if one wanted to procure underage children, it would certainly help if the head of the school was on board and possibly a pedophile himself. According to this former teacher at Fusion Academy, “many students struggle with learning differences, behavioral issues, and/or addictions” (https://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/Employee-Review-Fusion-Academy-RVW21260629.htm). In other words, the downtrodden and vulnerable. Fusion Academy refers to itself as a non-traditional school that focuses on individual students. Seems like a great opportunity. Leeds was also good friends with Epstein (https://nymag.com/nymetro/news/people/n_7912/) and has close ties to Colin Powell and Rudy Giuliani (https://nypost.com/2016/09/14/colin-powell-wont-vote-for-her-because-of-bill-clinton/).

2020.07.01 10:56 KagsTheOneAndOnly [OC] 5 breakout seasons you might have missed this year

This season, most of you have probably heard or read at one point or another about Luka Dončić soaring into the MVP conversation as a sophomore, the many all-star jumps (Ingram/Trae/Sabonis/Mitchell/Siakam/Booker), Bam Adebayo making a name for himself as an all-round stud in Miami, the Hornets' Devonte' Graham's heartwarming vault into NBA relevance, Ben Simmons's All-Defensive leap, and Jayson Tatum's long-awaited superstar transformation mid-season.
This post, then, will be talking about some breakouts around the league that you might have missed this season, coming from players on less talked-about teams, or simply improved aspects of certain players' games that may have flown under the radar for whatever reason.

1: Jonathan Isaac, defensive savant

[Note: Please read this fantastic and highly detailed two-part post by Jonathan Chen, from which I pilfered the vast majority of the clips that I've linked below: Jonathan Isaac: A Unicorn on the Defensive End]
Jonathan Isaac broke out as an early Defensive Player of the Year-candidate for the Orlando Magic this season - only an unfortunate season-ending left knee injury 32 games in stopped him from achieving a well-deserved All-Defensive spot this year.
While Isaac's gaudy per-game averages (7 rebounds, 1.6 steals, 2.4 blocks) are useful shorthand, they actually underplays his overall impact because of how truly unicorn-ish and all-encompassing his defensive profile is.
  • Paint defense
It all starts with Judah's elite rim protection - opponents shoot a sizeable 10.2 FG% worse within 6 feet of the rim (50.9 DFG%) when Isaac is the closest defender, where his savant-like shot-blocking instincts kick in as the Magic's defensive anchor. Whether he's the primary defender or the weak-side help, he's got fantastic footwork and is very quick off his feet, possessing a mean second-jump. Combined with his 6-11 frame, 7-1 wingspan, and an excellent sense of timing, Isaac is an athletic, long, and relentless roadblock at the rim to thwart otherwise high-percentage opponent shot-attempts in the paint. He's able to tussle with larger behemoths as well - here he is denying Embiid at the rim with one hand. In addition, Isaac remains quite disciplined, managing to consistently remain vertical on his contests and averaging only 2.5 fouls/game, impressive for a 3rd-year defender just 22 years of age.
  • Man defense
Isaac's man defense is already highly impressive, able to guard bigs and guards alike without giving an inch (he has a 62.2% versatility index) and able to guard either the primary or secondary offensive options effectively while also protecting the rim. He's got quick hands that he uses to force turnovers, constantly stripping players when they gather or pick up their dribble. In the post, his length and lanky frame makes him a pest. When defending perimeter threats, his footwork is impeccable, he maneuvers screens really well, and he's agile and long enough to shut down the Greek Freak in semi-transition. When he is beat, he often chases perpetrators down from behind.
  • Team defense
Isaac's off-ball activity and team defense, meanwhile, is reminiscent of peak Draymond, KG, or Andrei Kirilenko, constantly making timely rotations to eat up passing lanes, anticipating and disrupting opponent plays, crowding ball-handlers and halting dribble-penetration, closing out to shooters, and swatting shot attempts at the rim, basically making himself an all-around menace on the court.
  • Some of his few defensive weaknesses:
He can gamble at times for steals (which does work out more often than not thanks to his length and instincts) and occasionally foul on shot contests, he can get caught out-of-position in the post sometimes, and he can be a bit overly twitchy in the paint, falling for pump-fakes from time to time.
  • Orlando's best and most important defender:
He leads the team and ranks near the top of the league in steals/game (1.6), blocks/game (2.4), defensive loose-balls recovered (0.8), and deflections/game (3.3); is 2nd on the team in charges drawn (0.13), defensive box-outs (2.0); and is 3rd in defensive rebounds/game (5.2).
With Isaac on the court, the Orlando Magic's defensive rating jumps by a whopping 4.5 points to an excellent 106.5 DRTG (-3.9 rDRTG), which would rank as the 4th-best defense in the league over a full season, significantly higher than the 9th place (109.0 DRTG) the Magic ended up at at the time of the NBA's suspension.
  • Advanced metrics:
Box- and non-box advanced metrics all think very highly of Isaac's overall defensive impact - he has a +4.8 D-RAPTOR (3rd in NBA), +3.2 D-PIPM (4th), and a +2.9 D-BPM (3rd).
  • So what's next for Isaac?
Isaac is slowly starting to get the benefit of the doubt from referees:
"I thought they were going to call it, I thought they were going to call it goaltending,’’ said a relieved Isaac after his Magic notched their fourth straight victory – this one a gritty 93-87 defeat of Cleveland. "I just tried to get (Thompson’s hook shot) at its highest point, and they gave it to me. I think the refs are starting to let me slide a little bit and I like it.’’
It probably won't be very long before Isaac will be able to run rampant as a full-blown terror on the defensive end, and combined with his decent ancillary offensive numbers as a tertiary scorer / potential floor-spacer (12.0 PPG, 2.8 3PA, 33 3P%), Jonathan is already a truly indispensable part of the Magic rotation for the foreseeable future.
(Bonus clip that perhaps summarises the entirety of Isaac's versatile skillset: His near-5x5 performance in a 1-point loss vs the Dallas Mavericks' historic league-leading offense on November 6, putting up 13/10/5/6/4 while tormenting Porzingis all night long (10 pts, 2 TOVs, 29 FG%) and holding Luka and KP to a combined 37 points on 35 shots (47.5 TS%) and 8 turnovers.)

2: Christian Wood, the NBA's newest unicorn

After 49 games of being an overqualified backup to Andre Drummond (averaging 10/5/1/1/1 on excellent efficiency), Detroit finally moved Christian Wood into the starting lineup after Drummond got traded to Cleveland for their final 13 games before the NBA suspended its season.
  • "Sooo.. who is Wood, and why should we care?"
In his final 13 games, Christian Wood has played like a bonafide star, averaging 22.8 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 2.0 assists, 0.8 blocks, 0.8 steals, and 1.7 threes on 66% True Shooting (56 FG%, 40 3P% on 4.2 3PA, 76 FT%).
He's been remarkably consistent as well, scoring fewer than 17 points only once during this stretch, and showing up against a variety of good teams - 3 of his final 4 games were against stout opposition, and he rose to the challenge admirably, with outputs of 29/9/3 on 91 TS% vs OKC, 30/11/2 on 56 TS% vs the Jazz and reigning DPOY Gobert, and a career-high 32/7/2/3/2 on 81 TS% v.s. Philly.
  • "He's on a bad team though, and Detroit lost all but one of those 13 games. Aren't these just empty numbers?"
There's exists some evidence that these aren't empty calorie numbers.
For one thing, Wood is an advanced stats darling - he ranks in the top-20 to 30 range in most box- and non-box metrics: +4.5 RAPTOR (18th), +3.1 BPM (BBRef) (27th), 0.184 WS/48 (24th), +2.98 PIPM (26th), +2.82 RPM (ESPN) (22nd), +2.09 RAPM (20th).
For another, the Pistons are a whopping +10.9 points better with Wood on the court, with their defensive rating improving by +3 and their offensive rating getting a ridiculous +8 boost.
  • "So, what makes him so effective?"
Offensively, Wood is particularly special, able to shine as either a PF or a C.
When he plays the 5, he is an elite roll-man in the PnR (97th percentile); his potent roll-gravity often distracts defending bigs to get teammates easier looks at the rim. His athleticism and feathery touch allow him to finish at an elite rate at the rim (77 FG% in restricted area), either skying for lobs or shedding defenders with power and speed.
Wood is very aggressive in the short roll too, bullying defenders with unflashy but effective bumps, pivots, fakes, and his leaping ability, not shying away from contact either, affording him a healthy free-throw rate overall (6 FTA/game as starter, 76 FT%).
Wood is also a highly capable offensive rebounder (3.2 ORB/game in final 13 games, top 20 in ORB%), adept at following up on both teammate misses and his own.
Of course, Wood is also a remarkable shooter for his position (40 3P% on 4.2 3pa/game in final 13 games), with a quick and high release off-the-catch that's unbothered by all but the longest of perimeter defenders, opening up driving lanes for teammates with his gravity. "Wood is the rare stretch-4 who doubles as a rim-running 5", allowing coaches a high level of versatility when designing offensive sets. Wood possesses a smooth dribble, too, which lets him attack closeouts and slash to the basket.
  • "What about on defense, though?"
Defensively speaking, Wood has tremendous physical tools: 7-3 wingspan, excellent feet, highly athletic, making him a highly versatile defender capable of guarding speedy guards on switches (68.9 versatility index). He's a decent rim-protector - opponents shoot 6% worse within 6 feet of the hoop when Wood is the closest defender, and Detroit as a whole are +4.4 points better defensively when Wood is on the court. His pick-and-roll defense is actually quite decent, knowing when to drop and timing his contests well. Overall, he's likely a slight positive on defense.
  • "Does he suck at anything?"
Wood can't power through larger defenders, and his post game is highly limited. To quote Jonathan Tjarks, "his ability to score one-on-one is still mostly theoretical—he’s in the 22nd percentile of post scorers this season and the 10th percentile in isolations."
Wood is also a subpar playmaker - he had a 2.0/2.3 assist-to-turnover ratio in his final 13 games. He can make basic reads out of double-teams, but has yet to truly weaponise his own scoring threat to get teammates easier looks on a more consistent basis.
Defensively, his awareness as a team defender has room for improvement, and his motor can be sloppy (seen in some mediocre box-outs or close-outs). He also has trouble against heftier post players, and some speedy guards can blow by him.
Finally, Small Sample Size alert! Some regression is very likely expected for Wood's gaudy shooting numbers once more teams learn more about his abilities and begin to throw more defenders (and better defenders) on him.
  • "So what's the future like for Christian?"
Wood is trusting his teammates more on both sides of the ball. He’s not forcing things on offense... Wood is scoring by giving the ball up and trusting it will come back to him when he’s open instead of constantly hunting for his own shot.
Wood doesn't demand touches and is highly efficient in his role, something that will let him scale well on good offenses, something that bodes well for his future as a Piston but also makes him an attractive addition for a playoff side - he's an unrestricted free-agent this summer. If he carries or builds upon this level of production into next season, he'll easily be a Most Improved Player contender with All-Star potential.
  • "Hmm, I'm actually kinda interested in knowing more about him!"
In that case, here are two marvellous breakdowns of Wood's game which I consumed and referenced voraciously while writing this section:

3: Jaren Jackson Jr, one of the best volume-shooters in the league

Jaren Jackson Jr (17/5/1.5 on +2.6 rTS%), is a proper unicorn, and easily the 2nd most important offensive piece on the Grizzlies, mainly due to his elite floor-spacing opening things up considerably for their offense - he's frighteningly adept at his role, hitting 40% of his 6 to 7 three-point attempts per game.
  • "Surely the section title is clickbait or hyperbole, though, right? He's just a big, after all, he can't be that good"
Actually, there are only 11 other players in the entire league (≥30 GP) who have shot at least as accurately as Jaren (39.7 3P%) on at least as many attempts (6.3 3PA).
Here are all 135 3-pointers he's made this season, just to get an idea of how he shoots these, and here's him draining 9 threes on the league-leading Bucks' defense en route to a career-high 43 points.
  • "So does he just stand in the corner and wait for Ja to feed him?"
Not exactly... JJJ has a somewhat atypical form but a quick and high release, and he shoots a truly incredible variety of threes, making them as part of pick-and-pop action, some simply off-the-dribble, some stepbacks, some in transition, some on the move, some off screens, or and he even sprinkles in the odd logo yeet from 30 feet out.
To quote some more from this excellent SB Nation breakdown of Jaren Jackson Jr's versatile game by Mike Prada:
The fact that Jackson can take and make so many different kinds of threes enables the Grizzlies to deploy him in so many different spots on the court. He has no obvious sweet spot, which means there’s rarely a worry he’ll catch the ball somewhere he doesn’t belong. He can toggle between playmaker, primary scorer, screener, and floor spacer, depending on what the Grizzlies need at that particular moment.
Better yet, he can do all four within the same play, which ensures Memphis’ sets always have secondary options. A pick-and-pop that the defense covers effectively can quickly swing into a dribble handoff, post-up, or second-side screening action, and it’s difficult for the defense to peg exactly where Jackson fits in to those sequences. In an instant, he’s flipped from the big man screener that gets a guard open into the primary option on a flare screen to get him a three.
[vid]
And if that shot isn’t there, he can quickly flow back into being a screener for a guard curling up from the corner.
[vid]
Or — and this is spicy — he can invert the traditional big/guard setup and act as the ball-handler immediately.
[vid]
Well, overplaying JJJ's shooting is unwise - he possesses a decent handle for a big (relatively few turnovers considering he drives quite often) and is excellent at attacking closeouts and finishing at in the paint (65 FG% in restricted area). Some of his long strides and wrong-footed finishes bring to mind Pascal Siakam. His post scoring is well below-average (26th percentile), his ISO scoring is decent (65th percentile), and his shooting in the non-restricted area of the paint (floaters and such) isn't anything to write home about (39.5 FG%). Interestingly, he rarely takes midrange shots, attempting a James Harden-esque 16 midrange attempts over the entire season.
Defensively-speaking, Jaren is very versatile and has incredible length, athleticism, footwork, and timing, able to switch onto bigs and guards alike with equal ease and possessing preternatural defensive instincts as a help defender. However, he is still some way from fulfilling his All-Defensive, even DPOY potential, as he's haunted by persistent fouling issues - he's averaged 5.2 fouls/36 in each of his first 2 seasons. His rebounding rate is anemic for a player his size, too (3.7 D-Rebs/game) - part of this might be due to him playing out on the perimeter a lot, part of it might just be due to his rebounding being naturally poor. (In case you were wondering, JJJ's lack of rebounding isn't a Steven Adams issue because he's just boxing people out all the time, either - he's 109th in the league in defensive-box-outs/game.) His current overall defensive impact, therefore, is quite neutral at the moment - most advanced numbers don't think highly of it. Memphis have the 16th ranked defense in the league, and their defensive rating actually improves with JJJ off the court (some of this might just be noise, or perhaps a case of Grizzlies' backups shining against weaker bench units). In any case, these current defensive shortcomings are something Grizzlies fans will likely gladly live with, considering JJJ's offensive value and the promise of future improvements in his defensive impact once he learns to foul less.

4: Kris Dunn, the modern-era Tony Allen?

This season, the Bulls' dogged guard slash forward Kris Dunn has graded out consistently as one of the very best and most impactful defenders in the NBA, regardless of position. For the first time in his career, Dunn's team is A) excellent at defense with him on the court, and B) much better on defense with him on the court than without.
First, though, let's get the numbers out of the way:
  • Height: 6-3, Weight: 205 lb, Wingspan: 6-10, 51 GP, 24.9 MPG
  • 2nd in Steals/game (2.0), 1st in Steal % by a wide margin, 4th in Deflections/game (only player in the top 11 averaging fewer than 25 minutes a night), 8th in Defensive loose-balls recovered/game
  • 2nd in Defensive Box Plus Minus (BBRef)
  • 5th in Defensive PIPM
  • 7th Defensive RAPTOR, which incorporates player tracking data
  • 7th in Defensive RAPM / Luck-adjusted RAPM
  • 13th in Defensive Real Plus-Minus (ESPN)
  • Bulls have a 106.4 Defensive Rating (-4.0 rDRTG) with Kris Dunn on the floor, which would rank 4th in the NBA over a full season. The Bulls defense also improves by a massive +6.2 points when Dunn enters the game.
  • 67.8 Versatility Index, guarding positions 1-3 at least 19% of the time each, and spending 15% of his possessions guarding PFs and Cs
  • Held pick-and-roll ball-handlers to 0.71 points per possession, one of the best marks in the league
  • Can guard either the primary or secondary offensive options highly effectively as required
  • Opponents shoot 1.5% worse on 3s when Dunn is the closest defender
  • "Among those who logged at least 20 minutes per game, Dunn led all players in the percentage of his points that came off a turnover, at a whopping 29.3 percent. It’s reminiscent of prime Tony Allen — who used to live near the top of the league in this category — and more than doubled his production from the previous year."
Adding on some more quotes from Michael Pina's fantastic SB Nation breakdown of Dunn's defense, "Kris Dunn is a dying breed in today’s NBA. That’s why he’s so fascinating":
On the night Kris Dunn suffered a knee injury that will likely end his season, I sat by his locker to chat about defense. Considering no guard in the NBA has been better at it this season, the topic made sense.
We talked about... The dark arts that go into learning his opponent’s specific tendencies:
“A lot of guys who are righties like to go left to be able to get to their jump shot, and a lot of people who are righties like to go downhill to their right side. But if you’re a righty, most likely you like to go left. I just feel like you just have, you know, more in your bag of tricks going left. If you’re a lefty, most of the time they like going right. It’s just how they do it.
I like to break down to see what’s their go-to move. Some people when they come down the court, if they have the ball in their left hand, they’re getting ready to shoot. If they have the ball in their right hand, they’re ready to drive.”
... And player comparisons:
“I feel like Tony Allen, he just fits what I do. He’ll pounce on you. He was strong, physical. I think he could guard 1 through 3, even fours. I feel like I can guard some fours sometimes. I feel like that’s a good comparison because he’s got that dog, he’s got that bloodhound in him.”
Dunn’s season-long defensive impact was, to be frank, spectacular. He thrived in Jim Boylen’s tight-rope-walk of a defensive scheme, torpedoing passing lanes, living in his man’s jersey, and never giving up on a possession.
For most defenders, including Dunn, a majority of his defensive possessions are spent off the ball, and it’s here where his knowledge, instincts, and timing swirl up into a typhoon that the offense then has to navigate.
“He’s an all-defensive defender if I’ve ever seen one, and I’ve seen a few of them,” Boylen said right before the injury. “Paul George, Kawhi Leonard. He’s an All-Defensive guy.”
  • Indeed, Kris Dunn should receive some serious consideration for an All-Defensive spot. He may not get it because the Bulls are bad and his offensive role is limited, hence he likely won't be well-known to most voters, but he's clearly been one of the best guard defenders in the league this year, and one of the most impactful defenders in the league, period.

5: Kawhi Leonard, playmaker

This entry might surprise some readers, but yes, in the 2019-20 season, reigning Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard has finally broken out as a PASSER - 5.0 APG, decent 1.9:1 AST/TO ratio, 27.0 AST%, impressive 6.7 Passer Rating (Backpicks).
See, prior to this season, Kawhi was not actually a very good passer or playmaker.
  • A fun and relevant stat- Kawhi only has 10 TOTAL career games (regular season and playoffs combined) with 8 or more assists, and a whopping 7 of them came in the 2019-20 regular season. (source)
In previous years, Kawhi has had a few high-assist games in the playoffs, mostly as a result of making basic passes out of double-teams when teams commit multiple defenders to slow down his monster playoff-scoring, but he's never been a proficient playmaking wing like LeBron/Kobe/MJ, often lacking accuracy and velocity on many of his passes, and very rarely making more advanced reads (throwing skip passes out of a Pick-and-Roll/PnR, for example). After developing into the amazing ISO scorer we now know him as in 2017, Kawhi was generally in score-first mode for the vast majority of his possessions, generally only trying to find teammates when his own attack had fizzled out. This slightly limited his team's and his own ceiling as an offensive force, unable to punish help consistently and effectively.
This season, though, Kawhi burst out of the gate as a shockingly comfortable and effective passer and playmaker, averaging 8 APG in his first 4 games. Far from his probing, soft, and hesitant passes late in the shot clock to teammates in previous years, this version of the Klaw tries to keep his head up and his offensive options open, always tracking where his teammates are. He consistently hits the Clippers' bigs Zubac and Harrell in the PnR with crisp high-speed bounce-passes, throws no-looks and skip passes to shooters, and even manipulates defenders by freezing them with his eyes before rapidly lasering the ball to open teammates under the rim.
To quote Zach Lowe:
He already has developed chemistry with two very different dance partners in Ivica Zubac and Montrezl Harrell. Zubac is more laborious, and so Leonard navigates with zigzaggy, start-and-stop patience until Zubac rumbles free: clip
Harrell can zip to the rim or mirror Leonard's pitter-pat. Harrell also is a master at re-screening at different angles, and Leonard is learning to bob and weave behind him -- and use the threat of a handoff to slice backdoor: clip
His passing leap shows up on film, too, where he rarely looks lost anymore, knowing where his teammates are at all times, but it also shows up in the numbers: easily a career-high 5.0 assists/game (previous high was 3.3 in 2017), 27.0 AST% (previous high 18.9% in 2017).
The rest of the league should be worried - one of the finest scorers in the game has finally upgraded his passing game to match.
That's it for today, thanks for reading!

2020.07.01 10:16 KagsTheOneAndOnly [OC] 5 breakout seasons you might have missed this year:

This season, most of you have probably heard or read at one point or another about Luka Dončić soaring into the MVP conversation as a sophomore, the many all-star jumps (Ingram/Trae/Sabonis/Mitchell/Siakam/Booker), Bam Adebayo making a name for himself as an all-round stud in Miami, the Hornets' Devonte' Graham's heartwarming vault into NBA relevance, Ben Simmons's All-Defensive leap, and Jayson Tatum's long-awaited superstar transformation mid-season.
This post, then, will be talking about some breakouts around the league that you might have missed this season, coming from players on less talked-about teams, or simply improved aspects of certain players' games that may have flown under the radar for whatever reason.

1: Jonathan Isaac, defensive savant

[Note: Please read this fantastic and highly detailed two-part post by Jonathan Chen, from which I pilfered the vast majority of the clips that I've linked below: Jonathan Isaac: A Unicorn on the Defensive End]
Jonathan Isaac broke out as an early Defensive Player of the Year-candidate for the Orlando Magic this season - only an unfortunate season-ending left knee injury 32 games in stopped him from achieving a well-deserved All-Defensive spot this year.
While Isaac's gaudy per-game averages (7 rebounds, 1.6 steals, 2.4 blocks) are useful shorthand, they actually underplay his overall impact because of how truly unicorn-ish and all-encompassing his defensive profile is.
  • Paint defense
It all starts with Judah's elite rim protection - opponents shoot a sizeable 10.2 FG% worse within 6 feet of the rim (50.9 DFG%) when Isaac is the closest defender, where his savant-like shot-blocking instincts kick in as the Magic's defensive anchor. Whether he's the primary defender or the weak-side help, he's got fantastic footwork and is very quick off his feet, possessing a mean second-jump. Combined with his 6-11 frame, 7-1 wingspan, and an excellent sense of timing, Isaac is an athletic, long, and relentless roadblock at the rim to thwart otherwise high-percentage opponent shot-attempts in the paint. He's able to tussle with larger behemoths as well - here he is denying Embiid at the rim with one hand. In addition, Isaac remains quite disciplined, managing to consistently remain vertical on his contests and averaging only 2.5 fouls/game, impressive for a 3rd-year defender just 22 years of age.
  • Man defense
Isaac's man defense is already highly impressive, able to guard bigs and guards alike without giving an inch (he has a 62.2% versatility index) and able to guard either the primary or secondary offensive options effectively while also protecting the rim. He's got quick hands that he uses to force turnovers, constantly stripping players when they gather or pick up their dribble. In the post, his length and lanky frame makes him a pest. When defending perimeter threats, his footwork is impeccable, he maneuvers screens really well, and he's agile and long enough to shut down the Greek Freak in semi-transition. When he is beat, he often chases perpetrators down from behind.
  • Team defense
Isaac's off-ball activity and team defense, meanwhile, is reminiscent of peak Draymond, KG, or Andrei Kirilenko, constantly making timely rotations to eat up passing lanes, anticipating and disrupting opponent plays, crowding ball-handlers and halting dribble-penetration, closing out to shooters, and swatting shot attempts at the rim, basically making himself an all-around menace on the court.
  • Some of his few defensive weaknesses:
He can gamble at times for steals (which does work out more often than not thanks to his length and instincts) and occasionally foul on shot contests, he can get caught out-of-position in the post sometimes, and he can be a bit overly twitchy in the paint, falling for pump-fakes from time to time.
  • Orlando's best and most important defender:
He leads the team and ranks near the top of the league in steals/game (1.6), blocks/game (2.4), defensive loose-balls recovered (0.8), and deflections/game (3.3); is 2nd on the team in charges drawn (0.13), defensive box-outs (2.0); and is 3rd in defensive rebounds/game (5.2).
With Isaac on the court, the Orlando Magic's defensive rating jumps by a whopping 4.5 points to an excellent 106.5 DRTG (-3.9 rDRTG), which would rank as the 4th-best defense in the league over a full season, significantly higher than the 9th place (109.0 DRTG) the Magic ended up at at the time of the NBA's suspension.
  • Advanced metrics:
Box- and non-box advanced metrics all think very highly of Isaac's overall defensive impact - he has a +4.8 D-RAPTOR (3rd in NBA), +3.2 D-PIPM (4th), and a +2.9 D-BPM (3rd).
  • So what's next for Isaac?
Isaac is slowly starting to get the benefit of the doubt from referees:
"I thought they were going to call it, I thought they were going to call it goaltending,’’ said a relieved Isaac after his Magic notched their fourth straight victory – this one a gritty 93-87 defeat of Cleveland. "I just tried to get (Thompson’s hook shot) at its highest point, and they gave it to me. I think the refs are starting to let me slide a little bit and I like it.’’
It probably won't be very long before Isaac will be able to run rampant as a full-blown terror on the defensive end, and combined with his decent ancillary offensive numbers as a tertiary scorer / potential floor-spacer (12.0 PPG, 2.8 3PA, 33 3P%), Jonathan is already a truly indispensable part of the Magic rotation for the foreseeable future.
(Bonus clip that perhaps summarises the entirety of Isaac's versatile skillset: His near-5x5 performance in a 1-point loss vs the Dallas Mavericks' historic league-leading offense on November 6, putting up 13/10/5/6/4 while tormenting Porzingis all night long (10 pts, 2 TOVs, 29 FG%) and holding Luka and KP to a combined 37 points on 35 shots (47.5 TS%) and 8 turnovers.)

2: Christian Wood, the NBA's newest unicorn

After 49 games of being an overqualified backup to Andre Drummond (averaging 10/5/1/1/1 on excellent efficiency), Detroit finally moved Christian Wood into the starting lineup after Drummond got traded to Cleveland for their final 13 games before the NBA suspended its season.

In his final 13 games, Christian Wood has played like a bonafide star, averaging 22.8 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 2.0 assists, 0.8 blocks, 0.8 steals, and 1.7 threes on 66% True Shooting (56 FG%, 40 3P% on 4.2 3PA, 76 FT%).
He's been remarkably consistent as well, scoring fewer than 17 points only once during this stretch, and showing up against a variety of good teams - 3 of his final 4 games were against stout opposition, and he rose to the challenge admirably, with outputs of 29/9/3 on 91 TS% vs OKC, 30/11/2 on 56 TS% vs the Jazz and reigning DPOY Gobert, and a career-high 32/7/2/3/2 on 81 TS% v.s. Philly.
  • "He's on a bad team though, and Detroit lost all but one of those 13 games. Aren't these just empty numbers?"
There's exists some evidence that these aren't empty calorie numbers.
For one thing, Wood is an advanced stats darling - he ranks in the top-20 to 30 range in most box- and non-box metrics: +4.5 RAPTOR (18th), +3.1 BPM (BBRef) (27th), 0.184 WS/48 (24th), +2.98 PIPM (26th), +2.82 RPM (ESPN) (22nd), +2.09 RAPM (20th).

Defensively, his awareness as a team defender has room for improvement, and his motor can be sloppy (seen in some mediocre box-outs or close-outs). He also has trouble against heftier post players, and some speedy guards can blow by him.
Finally, Small Sample Size alert! Some regression is very likely expected for Wood's gaudy shooting numbers once more teams learn more about his abilities and begin to throw more defenders (and better defenders) on him.
  • "So what's the future like for Christian?"
Wood is trusting his teammates more on both sides of the ball. He’s not forcing things on offense... Wood is scoring by giving the ball up and trusting it will come back to him when he’s open instead of constantly hunting for his own shot.
Wood doesn't demand touches and is highly efficient in his role, something that will let him scale well on good offenses, something that bodes well for his future as a Piston but also makes him an attractive addition for a playoff side - he's an unrestricted free-agent this summer. If he carries or builds upon this level of production into next season, he'll easily be a Most Improved Player contender with All-Star potential.
  • "Hmm, I'm actually kinda interested in knowing more about him!"
In that case, here are two marvellous breakdowns of Wood's game which I consumed and referenced voraciously while writing this section:

3: Jaren Jackson Jr, one of the best volume-shooters in the league

Jaren Jackson Jr (17/5/1.5 on +2.6 rTS%), is a proper unicorn, and easily the 2nd most important offensive piece on the Grizzlies, mainly due to his elite floor-spacing opening things up considerably for their offense - he's frighteningly adept at his role, hitting 40% of his 6 to 7 three-point attempts per game.
  • "Surely the section title is clickbait or hyperbole, though, right? He's just a big, after all, he can't be that good"
Actually, there are only 11 other players in the entire league (≥30 GP) who have shot at least as accurately as Jaren (39.7 3P%) on at least as many attempts (6.3 3PA).
Here are all 135 3-pointers he's made this season, just to get an idea of how he shoots these, and here's him draining 9 threes on the league-leading Bucks' defense en route to a career-high 43 points.
  • "So does he just stand in the corner and wait for Ja to feed him?"
Not exactly... JJJ has a somewhat atypical form but a quick and high release, and he shoots a truly incredible variety of threes, making them as part of pick-and-pop action, some simply off-the-dribble, some stepbacks, some in transition, some on the move, some off screens, or and he even sprinkles in the odd logo yeet from 30 feet out.
To quote some more from this excellent SB Nation breakdown of Jaren Jackson Jr's versatile game by Mike Prada:
The fact that Jackson can take and make so many different kinds of threes enables the Grizzlies to deploy him in so many different spots on the court. He has no obvious sweet spot, which means there’s rarely a worry he’ll catch the ball somewhere he doesn’t belong. He can toggle between playmaker, primary scorer, screener, and floor spacer, depending on what the Grizzlies need at that particular moment.
Better yet, he can do all four within the same play, which ensures Memphis’ sets always have secondary options. A pick-and-pop that the defense covers effectively can quickly swing into a dribble handoff, post-up, or second-side screening action, and it’s difficult for the defense to peg exactly where Jackson fits in to those sequences. In an instant, he’s flipped from the big man screener that gets a guard open into the primary option on a flare screen to get him a three.
[vid]
And if that shot isn’t there, he can quickly flow back into being a screener for a guard curling up from the corner.
[vid]
Or — and this is spicy — he can invert the traditional big/guard setup and act as the ball-handler immediately.
[vid]
Well, overplaying JJJ's shooting is unwise - he possesses a decent handle for a big (relatively few turnovers considering he drives quite often) and is excellent at attacking closeouts and finishing at in the paint (65 FG% in restricted area). Some of his long strides and wrong-footed finishes bring to mind Pascal Siakam. His post scoring is well below-average (26th percentile), his ISO scoring is decent (65th percentile), and his shooting in the non-restricted area of the paint (floaters and such) isn't anything to write home about (39.5 FG%). Interestingly, he rarely takes midrange shots, with a James Harden-esque 16 midrange attempts over the entire season.
Defensively-speaking, Jaren is very versatile and has incredible length, athleticism, footwork, and timing, able to switch onto bigs and guards alike with equal ease and possessing preternatural defensive instincts as a help defender. However, he is still some way from fulfilling his All-Defensive, even DPOY potential, as he's haunted by persistent fouling issues - he's averaged 5.2 fouls/36 in each of his first 2 seasons. His rebounding rate is anemic for a player his size, too (3.7 D-Rebs/game) - part of this might be due to him playing out on the perimeter a lot, part of it might just be due to his rebounding being naturally poor. (In case you were wondering, JJJ's lack of rebounding isn't a Steven Adams issue because he's just boxing people out all the time, either - he's 109th in the league in defensive-box-outs/game.) His current overall defensive impact, therefore, is quite neutral at the moment - most advanced numbers don't think highly of it. Memphis have the 16th ranked defense in the league, and their defensive rating actually improves with JJJ off the court (some of this might just be noise, or perhaps a case of Grizzlies' backups shining against weaker bench units). In any case, these current defensive shortcomings are something Grizzlies fans will likely gladly live with, considering JJJ's offensive value and the promise of future improvements in his defensive impact once he learns to foul less.

4: Kris Dunn, the modern-era Tony Allen?

This season, the Bulls' dogged guard slash forward Kris Dunn has graded out consistently as one of the very best and most impactful defenders in the NBA, regardless of position. For the first time in his career, Dunn's team is A) excellent at defense with him on the court, and B) much better on defense with him on the court than without.
First, though, let's get the numbers out of the way:
  • Height: 6-3, Weight: 205 lb, Wingspan: 6-10, 51 GP, 24.9 MPG
  • 2nd in Steals/game (2.0), 1st in Steal % by a wide margin, 4th in Deflections/game (only player in the top 11 averaging fewer than 25 minutes a night), 8th in Defensive loose-balls recovered/game
  • 2nd in Defensive Box Plus Minus (BBRef)
  • 5th in Defensive PIPM
  • 7th Defensive RAPTOR, which incorporates player tracking data
  • 7th in Defensive RAPM / Luck-adjusted RAPM
  • 13th in Defensive Real Plus-Minus (ESPN)
  • Bulls have a 106.4 Defensive Rating (-4.0 rDRTG) with Kris Dunn on the floor, which would rank 4th in the NBA over a full season. The Bulls defense also improves by a massive +6.2 points when Dunn enters the game.
  • 67.8 Versatility Index, guarding positions 1-3 at least 19% of the time each, and spending 15% of his possessions guarding PFs and Cs
  • Held pick-and-roll ball-handlers to 0.71 points per possession, one of the best marks in the league
  • Can guard either the primary or secondary offensive options highly effectively as required
  • Opponents shoot 1.5% worse on 3s when Dunn is the closest defender
  • "Among those who logged at least 20 minutes per game, Dunn led all players in the percentage of his points that came off a turnover, at a whopping 29.3 percent. It’s reminiscent of prime Tony Allen — who used to live near the top of the league in this category — and more than doubled his production from the previous year."
Adding on some more quotes from Michael Pina's fantastic SB Nation breakdown of Dunn's defense, "Kris Dunn is a dying breed in today’s NBA. That’s why he’s so fascinating":
On the night Kris Dunn suffered a knee injury that will likely end his season, I sat by his locker to chat about defense. Considering no guard in the NBA has been better at it this season, the topic made sense.
We talked about... The dark arts that go into learning his opponent’s specific tendencies:
“A lot of guys who are righties like to go left to be able to get to their jump shot, and a lot of people who are righties like to go downhill to their right side. But if you’re a righty, most likely you like to go left. I just feel like you just have, you know, more in your bag of tricks going left. If you’re a lefty, most of the time they like going right. It’s just how they do it.
I like to break down to see what’s their go-to move. Some people when they come down the court, if they have the ball in their left hand, they’re getting ready to shoot. If they have the ball in their right hand, they’re ready to drive.”
... And player comparisons:
“I feel like Tony Allen, he just fits what I do. He’ll pounce on you. He was strong, physical. I think he could guard 1 through 3, even fours. I feel like I can guard some fours sometimes. I feel like that’s a good comparison because he’s got that dog, he’s got that bloodhound in him.”
Dunn’s season-long defensive impact was, to be frank, spectacular. He thrived in Jim Boylen’s tight-rope-walk of a defensive scheme, torpedoing passing lanes, living in his man’s jersey, and never giving up on a possession.
For most defenders, including Dunn, a majority of his defensive possessions are spent off the ball, and it’s here where his knowledge, instincts, and timing swirl up into a typhoon that the offense then has to navigate.
“He’s an all-defensive defender if I’ve ever seen one, and I’ve seen a few of them,” Boylen said right before the injury. “Paul George, Kawhi Leonard. He’s an All-Defensive guy.”
  • Indeed, Kris Dunn should receive some serious consideration for an All-Defensive spot. He may not get it because the Bulls are bad and his offensive role is limited, hence he likely won't be well-known to most voters, but he's clearly been one of the best guard defenders in the league this year, and one of the most impactful defenders in the league, period.

5: Kawhi Leonard, playmaker

This entry might surprise some readers, but yes, in the 2019-20 season, reigning Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard has finally broken out as a PASSER - 5.0 APG, decent 1.9:1 AST/TO ratio, 27.0 AST%, impressive 6.7 Passer Rating (Backpicks).
See, prior to this season, Kawhi was not actually a very good passer or playmaker.
  • A fun and relevant stat- Kawhi only has 10 TOTAL career games (regular season and playoffs combined) with 8 or more assists, and a whopping 7 of them came in the 2019-20 regular season. (source)
In previous years, Kawhi has had a few high-assist games in the playoffs, mostly as a result of making basic passes out of double-teams when teams commit multiple defenders to slow down his monster playoff-scoring, but he's never been a proficient playmaking wing like LeBron/Kobe/MJ, often lacking accuracy and velocity on many of his passes, and very rarely making more advanced reads (throwing skip passes out of a Pick-and-Roll/PnR, for example). After developing into the amazing ISO scorer we now know him as in 2017, Kawhi was generally in score-first mode for the vast majority of his possessions, generally only trying to find teammates when his own attack had fizzled out. This slightly limited his team's and his own ceiling as an offensive force, unable to punish help consistently and effectively.
This season, though, Kawhi burst out of the gate as a shockingly comfortable and effective passer and playmaker, averaging 8 APG in his first 4 games. Far from his probing, soft, and hesitant passes late in the shot clock to teammates in previous years, this version of the Klaw tries to keep his head up and his offensive options open, always tracking where his teammates are. He consistently hits the Clippers' bigs Zubac and Harrell in the PnR with crisp high-speed bounce-passes, throws no-looks and skip passes to shooters, and even manipulates defenders by freezing them with his eyes before rapidly lasering the ball to open teammates under the rim.
To quote Zach Lowe:
He already has developed chemistry with two very different dance partners in Ivica Zubac and Montrezl Harrell. Zubac is more laborious, and so Leonard navigates with zigzaggy, start-and-stop patience until Zubac rumbles free: clip
Harrell can zip to the rim or mirror Leonard's pitter-pat. Harrell also is a master at re-screening at different angles, and Leonard is learning to bob and weave behind him -- and use the threat of a handoff to slice backdoor: clip
His passing leap shows up on film, too, where he rarely looks lost anymore, knowing where his teammates are at all times, but it also shows up in the numbers: easily a career-high 5.0 assists/game (previous high was 3.3 in 2017), 27.0 AST% (previous high 18.9% in 2017).
The rest of the league should be worried - one of the finest scorers in the game has finally upgraded his passing game to match.
That's it for today, thanks for reading!

2020.06.28 17:32 ih8pkmn Canon Primer: S & C Plastics

While SCPs make up the bulk of content on the SCP wiki, it’s also supported by a massive bulwark of tales-- stories set in the SCP Foundation universe that deal with everything from death itself dying to a mother sacrificing herself to save her daughter from a mad god to researchers enacting family disclosure protocols in order to tell their kids the truth about their work. Tales that, to the annoyance of someone who has written over 100 of the danged things, nobody really seems to read unless they include Drs. Clef, Bright or Kondraki.
I’m aiming to change that, here. This post is a canon primer for a project that I’ve worked on for close to eight years now: S & C Plastics.

What is S & C Plastics?

S & C Plastics was born from the mind of Djoric/, an author known for, among other things, SCP-2845, SCP-2085, and the saga of Mary-Ann and Salah in the Et Tam Deum Petivi canon. In his own words, it’s meant to be more of a slice-of-life look at the Foundation, as opposed to a grand-scale conflict. The lives of researchers and how they interact with each other and the world at large, for the most part. I took the idea and ran with it.
The canon is set in the town of Sloth’s Pit, Wisconsin, and focuses on the lives of researchers at Site-87, publicly known as S & C Plastics. Sloth’s Pit is located in the northwestern part of the state, in Douglas County, west of Superior and east of Duluth, Minnesota. It is a Nexus-- an area full of anomalous phenomena that is nonetheless still inhabited by people who are used to it, and are therefore exempted from the Foundation’s policy of ‘amnesticize everyone and get them out of there.’
Sloth’s Pit is named for Jackson Sloth, its founder-- or more precisely, for his fate. On Christmas Day 1890, his manor was pulled into a perfectly circular sinkhole, exactly 100 feet in diameter, and said to be bottomless. With him in the house was his wife Imogen and son Jasper-- his daughter, Caroline, was in the hospital for reasons lost to history. Since this time, Sloth’s Pit has been affected by anomalies that conform to three broad concepts.
The first is the concept of Narrative Causality. Jackson Sloth was somewhat of a budding author, and the Pit its believed to be a Narrative Singularity of sorts-- some will call it a ‘plot hole’, but they will be immediately discouraged by a sharp bonk to the head by their partner. As a result of this, events in the town will play out in a manner strongly conforming to some form of storyline-- several people have found a way to exploit this for personal gain.
As a result of Narrative Causality, beings known as Local Legends have emerged. Taking the form of urban legends from around Sloth’s Pit, they’re immortal beings whose form is fluid and changes with the most recent or most popular retelling of their source myth. The Goatman, for instance, is often portrayed as an axe-wielding anthropomorphic goat who torments teenagers in a manner akin to a slasher villain, but has taken on more demonic forms when a local Satanist convention comes into the approximate area. In one case, they’ve taken the form of a Union veteran from the American Civil War, after the Used-To-Be-About-History Channel aired a ‘documentary’ about the Demons of Gettysburg.
The second major concept is something I like to call Weirdness Magnetism. Essentially, minor anomalous phenomena just has a tendency to crop up at random around Sloth’s Pit, usually in the form of cyclical or recurring events-- for instance, gravity on Main Street reverses itself once a week, and people make a sport of trying to jump up the buildings on the opposite side of the street. Then there’s the darker events that occur-- few people forget the time that Ted Mason, owner of the thankfully defunct Vegan Buffet, tried to serve human meat as a Vegan dish. However, anomalous phenomena can be drawn in from the outside as well-- for instance, a being claiming to be the goddess Pele has recently set up the Volcanic Glacier Smoothie Co., making drinks with real strawberry-banana hybrids.
The final major concept can broadly be defined as Seasonal Oddities. This is mainly due to me writing tales in Sloth’s Pit set around Christmas and Halloween on an almost annual basis, but weird stuff happens around those holidays with startling frequency. Due to a massive amount of dangerous anomalies caused by this, American Independence Day is illegal to celebrate within city limits.
In addition, Sloth’s Pit has its own miniature Group of Interest in the form of The Union. The Union is an organization of anomalously skilled workers that refer to each other by their job titles, like The Stocker, the Electrician, or the Orchardist, rather than by name. They are stationed within the woods of Sloth's Pit at the Union House (which is more of a tower than a ‘house’), a building which reveals itself only to those who are looking for it. Much of their power stems from the Nexus itself which is harnessed within each employee's Charm-- a tool representing their position of employment. Headed by The Janitor, The Union's main purpose is to handle upkeep around the town, such as by stocking the shelves of an abandoned grocery store, fixing car problems, or keeping track of the local animal population. People slip up every now and again, but if you really screw up, you’re going to get fired-- so they’re hoping that HR never comes breathing down their necks.
The Foundation began running the city in 1977, through a combination of taking over the government and making all of the citizens E-Class personnel-- civilians who are somewhat in the know of the Foundation, insofar as ‘a research organization is monitoring the town’.
The overall tone of the canon is a fair bit lighter than some parts of the wiki-- Djoric specifically cited Gravity Falls, Twin Peaks and Hellboy as inspirations, so this is definitely an urban fantasy setting. At the same time, there’s a great deal of flexibility-- S & C Plastics has stories about everything from rampaging Christmas trees to a man’s first day on the job at a weird grocery store to someone realizing they’re losing a very old friend of theirs to Alzheimer’s.

Where To Start

Here are a few suggestions for what to read to ease yourself into the canon.
Multi-U 101: Introduces the Brothers Bailey.
Friday and Stratagem: The first two ‘Official’ S & C Plastics tales, written by Djoric.
Halloween at S & C Plastics: The first thing I ever wrote for this canon! About vandalism and Halloween.
Playing with Flames: Acts as the introduction to Dr. Katherine Sinclair and Montgomery Reynolds, a pair of fairly major players in the canon.
Local Legends: Introduces the eponymous concept in the form of the Goatman.
Satyr’s Reign: Introduces several major task force agents in the canon.
S & C Plastics Actually Does Their Job: S & C Plastics… making plastics.
Starlow Grocery: A tale about a Civilian in Sloth’s Pit trying to adapt to his new job. Serves as an introduction to the Union.

Site-87

Site-87 has four above-ground floors and thirteen sub-levels. The Director has an auxiliary office above ground on the top level, while their office proper is on Sublevel 2 with the rest of administration. The remainder of the aboveground is used for storage, with the exception of a reception area.
There’s no real concrete location for most of the places in Site-87, with a few exceptions:
Ground Level: Reception and entrance. Greenhouses used by the department of botany are located in the back of the building.
Sublevel 1: Barracks and headquarters of Mobile Task Force Sigma-10, “The Sloth’s Arm”, a task force dedicated to the containment of anomalies in the Sloth’s Pit Nexus Zone. Also houses the main armory and firing range.
Sublevel 2: Administration. The Director's office, department of accounting, and offices for liaisons to various organizations are located here.
Sublevel 3: Residential areas. Site-87 is capable of housing one-thousand members of personnel at any given time, though several members of staff choose to live in the town itself and commute to work. In addition to living quarters, it also hosts a weight and cardio room, two different rec rooms, three auditoriums and a cafeteria.
Sublevel 5: Metaphysical studies. Theology, thaumatology, memetics, ontology and pataphysics are all headquartered here. Conceptual and thaumic containment cells are all contained on this level.
Sublevel 11: The Department of Multi-Universal Affairs.
Sublevel 12: Maintenance sector. Several redundant power generators, heat sinks, boilers, and a small-payload Penzance Device, capable of erasing local reality in a twelve-mile radius, are down here. The Penzance Device requires approval from the Site Director, Regional Command, and at least one member of the Council to activate, and will destroy the Nexus and everyone and everything within it when it detonates.
Sublevel 13: Due to superstition, Sublevel 13 does not exist.
Sublevel 14: Over 200 meters beneath the rest of the site, housing high-level containment cells.
With the exception of Level 14, all levels also have a break room, restrooms, an intercom booth, security station, emergency bunkers, and access to small arms available to personnel who have a weapons pass.

Local History

This is a rough timeline of events, leading up to the first canonical S&C Plastics tale in the ‘modern’ day.
1879: Aspiring lumber magnate Jackson Sloth founded a town he would call New Toronto, Wisconsin.
December 25th, 1890: Sloth’s Manor sinks into the ground, forming Sloth’s Pit.
1892: Following a massive spike in anomalous activity, the town is renamed Sloth’s Pit, and largely abandoned. A small number of people remain, and the community grows from them.
1895: The first sighting of the Goatman is reported. His original tale claims he kills couples who have children out of wedlock, before cutting open the mother’s womb and taking the child for himself, to either eat or raise.
1897: The first sighting of the Gallows Ghosts are reported-- specters that apparently climb up an invisible set of gallows, before being hung from them. Sloth’s Pit’s gallows have never been used, as far as public knowledge is concerned.
1903: The first sighting of Sinning Jessie, a Local Legend born from a series of advertisements promoting the virtue of abstinence, is reported. She’s depicted as a prostitute missing her left eye, and is known for eating a certain… male organ.
1918: Caroline Sloth, the last known member of Jackson Sloth’s line, dies from the Spanish Flu. She and over 400 others are buried in the largest mass grave in Wisconsin, which over time turns into the Grave Bog.
1921: Josef Macek, a native of Sloth’s Pit and veteran of the Great War, murders three women over the course of a week. As a result, he’s coined the King of Knives and after his death, is incarnated as a Local Legend.
1950s: A WWII veteran named Sebastian Balreich, his left hand replaced by a primitive ‘hook’ prosthesis, becomes the subject of fear and ridicule from local children after myths of the Hook-Handed Man begin to spread across the USA Sloth’s Pit does its thing, and Sebastian is reshaped into the Hook-Handed Man archetype, having to fake his own death in the 1960s as a result of his newfound immortality.
October 31st, 1969: The County Fair burns down, and several prominent members of the community disappear. The Legends term the period of time this takes place during as the Black Autumn, and agree to forget about it, because that’s easier to do when you’re a pataphysical construct.
July 1976: The Foundation learns of Sloth’s Pit from an unknown source-- specifically, they learn of an anomaly affecting a local summer camp, Camp Krakow. The camp is overrun by creatures formed from the nightmares of homesick children who attend it, but is protected by a guardian spirit known as Big Bear. The Foundation raids the camp in the middle of the night, flooding it with amnestic gas, and takes the Big Bear totem. The next day, the entire camp is found torn to shreds by nightmares creatures. The events here are depicted in the tale Last Days at Camp.
September 1976: Site-87 is formed in a small industrial building on the eastern end of town, to monitor the camp, as they think it’s the only anomaly in the area. They are quickly proven wrong, as Phillip Verhoten, a Foundation physicist from South Africa, finds several dozen minor anomalies within a single block of Main Street. This helps develop his theories on Nexuses as a whole.
Summer 1981: Parapharmacologist Nina Weiss is thrown down the Bottomless Pit by an unknown malefactor, only to crawl her way out. Director Gregory Westphalen is found dead a few days later, and posthumously is discovered to be a member of the Chaos Insurgency. Philip Page is appointed as director.
1982: Physicist Tyler Bailey and his research assistant Johnathan Everett King manage to do three impossible things in the course of a single year: firstly, they manage to create a stable portal to an alternate universe. Secondly, they manage to send matter through it and retrieve matter from it. Thirdly, they get help with this from counterparts in another universe who send them blueprints for a completed device to allow this, known today as the Multi-Universal Transit Array. Dr. King would later be known for his contributions to studies on string theory, free will as it applies to the multiverse theory, and being that guy with the apple seeds.
1983: Site-87 is made the testing ground for the Kinder Foundation Initiative, following a series of psychological breakdowns throughout the organization, due to its cruel treatment of humanoid anomalies and even colder treatment of staff who attempt to do something about it. Personnel are encouraged to socialize with each other, host events such as movie nights, and a proper rec room is installed with more than just a foosball table and a TV that picks up NBC once in a fortnight, as well as instituting mandatory counseling.
1990: Nina Weiss is appointed director of Site-87.
1997: Tyler Bailey dies of a brain aneurysm. He is survived by identical triplets-- Thomas, Tristan, and Trevor, all of whom go on to careers in the Foundation’s Department of Multi-universal Affairs.
December 25th, 2008: The Incident Happens. Exactly what the Incident was is unknown, but it involved several things, including:
* The disappearance of Site-87’s entire Paleontology department
* Dreams of candy-cane fingers
* Pieces of mistletoe being found in the air ducts for decades to come
* A very bad batch of eggnog
* The reassignment or disappearance of over a tenth of Site-87’s staff
* An acute phobia of the concept of Santa Claus that persisted in most staff until 2015.
2012: Phillip Verhoten publishes his first edition of The Crossroads: A Study of Urban Anomalous Nexuses in the United States, a nonfiction book that catalogs and analyzes all known Nexuses. Sloth’s Pit is the focus of Chapters 2 and 3. The tales Stratagem and Friday take place.

Characters Bios

Director Nina Weiss: As her title suggests, she is the director of Site-87. She’s first mentioned in Halloween at S&C Plastics, and first appears in Attack of the Keter Skeeters.
Nina Weiss had to literally claw her way up to where she is. She’s a parapharmacologist who got her start attempting to develop an antidote to an anomalous toxin she encountered on an expedition to the Amazon to find medicinal plants, and was recruited after she managed to save a quarter of her expedition. She was one of the first staff at Site-87.
In 1981, Director Westphalen attempted to have her assassinated for her work on something called RHNOBTL (pronounced “Rhinobeetle”)-- essentially, a super-strength serum that, when injected, would make your body burn thousands of calories an hour, before leaving you to collapse and die of starvation. She used a sample of this to climb out of a ledge on the bottomless pit that her would-be assassin threw her into, and was found by Foundation agents, whereupon she devoured every single hamburger at three different restaurants just to be able to walk again. Director Westphalen was found dead of starvation a few days later.
Since this time, Weiss has carried a pearl-handled revolver with her everywhere, and judging by the number of times members of personnel have seen her at the range, she knows how to use it.
She has a niece, Jane Weiss, that’s part of MTF Theta-90 (“Angle Grinders”), and may or may not be based on the character of Nina Sharp from Fringe.
Dr. Katheirne Sinclair and Montgomery Reynolds: The only two members of the Occult Studies division at Site-87, first appearing in Playing with Flames.
Dr. Sinclair was largely disrespected when she first joined the Foundation, due to entering the anomalous community as a member of the Serpent’s Hand. She quit the Hand after her cell, organized by her ex-boyfriend Ben ‘Burnout’ Carlisle, attempted to atomize her alma mater due to having a grudge on a single faculty member. As a thaumaturge/Type-Blue, she specializes in ritual invocations and enchantments, but lacks the focus for deeper studies of occult lore. Her hair is the same color as the magical fire she wields, and her skin is pale and freckled, reflecting her half-Irish descent. Her passion for the art of magic is only matched by her curiosity and need to experiment and find more.
Montgomery Reynolds was originally an alchemical consultant from the Global Occult Coalition’s Sunspotting program-- an initiative to identify and recruit individuals who may have Type-Blue abilities before they can become a liability. Reynolds possesses little talent himself, but was snatched up by the GOC at only fifteen after a recruiter found him having an argument with an owner of an occult bookstore in New York City over a forged copy of Ex Dorminus. He was given to the Foundation as part of a Personnel Exchange, and while Sinclair originally thought Reynolds was going to be a hyper-militant GOC-sucker, she was pleasantly surprised after coming into the lab one day and finding him making notes on several tomes she had been meaning to catalog for months. Rotund, dark-haired and tall, his physique might be intimidating, but it’s his mind you have to watch out for. He’s carried a flame for Dr. Sinclair since they first met.
Drs.Thomas, Trevor and Tristan Bailey: Three triplets, first appearing in Multi-U 101.
In the Foundation, family lineages are relatively common. The Brights have a dynasty going back at least a century, the Anboroughs are widespread and ambitious, and it’s speculated that Simon Glass’s daughter will follow in his footsteps after she gets her doctorate. Then we have the Baileys. Tyler Bailey was best known for inventing the Multi-Universal Transit Array. His three sons, Tristan, Tom, and Trevor, continued his legacy.
Until around 2013, Trevor Bailey was head of the Department of Multi-Universal Affairs, before he took drastic measures in containing an important Keter-class anomaly by shoving it into a pocket dimension, shutting the portal, and scrambling its coordinates so that it could never be found. He’s been stuck at a desk job since, acting as a diplomat and bean counter, which is a major waste of his talents-- he’s smart enough to redesign the entire M.U.T.A. to run on solar energy, if they gave him a chance. Stationed at Site-19, feels like he’s constantly put-upon by everyone and everything.
Tom “Bombadill” Bailey is an explorer. His boots are first in the ground in any newly-discovered universe, the stranger, the better. He’ll revel in the oddness of the infinite worlds, the new stars in every sky, the feeling of wind in his hair underneath two or three or five suns. He’s currently commissioner of Site-1483.
Tristan Bailey is probably one of the most influential physicists in the Foundation today. His work on SCP-2000 helped further the understanding of how the facility works. He’s mainly a diplomat, nowadays, due to the fact that he helped design a multi-universal translator. The only brother stationed at Site-87. He has a sharp mind and sharper wit, though he acts odd for his age-- whatever that may be. He's romantically involved with Claire Hennessy, the current head of the Department of Multi-Universal Affairs.
The triplets all have an odd quirk about them-- while they always look identical, barring facial hair or the odd suntan, their age is hard to define, and their date of birth might even be classified. Tom claims they were born in the 60’s, while Trevor swears it was the 1970s, and Tristan shrugs and says ‘I grew up watching Carl Sagan’s Cosmos, does that tell you anything?’. They look anywhere between 20 and 40 years old, due to their cells being scrambled as a side effect of constantly crossing universal barriers, a mechanism also observed in SCP-507.
Dr. Keith Partridge: A botanist, first appearing in The 12 Days of Site-87’s Christmas.
Dr. Partridge is a private person, often not getting along with a large part of SIte-87’s staff. What he has been willing to share is that he’s half-Romanian on his mother’s side, has a bachelor’s in horticulture and a botany doctorate, and was part of an expedition to contain a species of anomalous plant that he refers to as ‘triffids’ in Guatemala. What happened in Guatemala is largely classified, but during his time there, he became competent with skills ranging from plumbing and navigating with an improvised sextant to safe ways to eat raw meat and the use and maintenance of an AK-47. He’s haunted by his past, though tries not to show it too much. Has a tendency to get transfigured into plants.
Researcher Christopher Hastings: Research assistant to Dr. Partridge, first appearing in And I Feel Fine.
Christopher Hastings is that one weird guy. You know, the guy at work who seems nice enough, but you think is happier alone in his own little world. And largely, you’d be right. Hastings only joined the Foundation in 2011, and while he’s not amounted to much research-wise, he’s known for having various life-saving protocols and guidelines memorized down to a T. He’s a wiry little twerp and may not seem like much, but the words ‘scarily competent’ have been used to describe him on more than one occasion. Consequently, he’s also quite paranoid and smells conspiracy in everything.
Dr. Claude Mattings and Dr. Cassandra Pike: A biologist and a cryptozoologist, respectively, introduced in Closure.
Dr. Mattings and Dr. Pike have been together since 2012, and have gone through several public arguments, a very nasty breakup, dozens of tearful counseling sessions, and eventually, marriage (though Pike still uses her maiden name).
Dr. Mattings is a man who constantly sounds like everything he says is snide or sarcastic, even if he’s being sincere. He’s tall, gaunt, and wears glasses that always seem to shine in such a way that they hide his eyes. He seems like an entirely humorless human being, except in two areas: firstly, his wife, who he refuses to stop loving for even a second. Secondly, his D&D group, which he runs every Sunday in the common area. The group consists of him, Dr. Pike, Dr. Bailey, Dr. Sinclair, Reynolds, and (when they can find time) Dr. Partridge and Agent Pryce.
Cassandra Pike is a woman who has blonde hair, teeth that are uneven and fang-like, and psychological issues. She’s quiet and reserved normally, but is prone to bizarre fits of rage and paranoia followed by crushing despair and anxiety, which resulted in her first truly Massive Fight with Claude. She’s been placed under psychological observation a number of times, and she knows she’s on her last strike-- but she has been improving, with a combination of therapy, medication, and support from her friends.
Lt. Seren Pryce: A sniper, and member of Squad 29, first appearing along with the rest of her squad in Satyr’s Reign.
Seren Pryce is a veteran of Afghanistan, having been honorably discharged in 2005 due to her repeatedly humiliating her C.O. and him wanting to get her out as quickly as possible. She briefly worked for a Private Military Contractor, before her ‘Initiation’ happened.
An Initiation is Foundation slang for when a member of the Armed Forces has their first encounter with the anomalous. Seren’s first encounter occurred after seeing one of her buddies die in a hospital-- but a few hours later, he’s wandering around the camp, confused. Seren put him to rest, inadvertently disturbing his corpse in the process, resulting in her being fired. The Foundation recruited her after her story was overheard by an agent at a bar in her hometown of Carol Stream, IL.
From her recruitment in 2008 until 2014, she was a guard at Site-36, which housed SCP-089. She was severely injured during the events of the tale Empire of Dirt, which resulted in her reassignment to Site-87, where it was believed her life would be less hectic and that she would have more time to recover.
Cpl. Ruby Williams and Sgt. Blake Williams: A pair of fraternal twins, first appearing in Satyr’s Reign. Ruby is adept at breach-and-clear maneuvers, while Blake specializes in stealth tactics.
Ruby and Blake are fairly inseparable-- they were in the same unit in the military, fought in the same battles, like the same food. In some ways, they’ve always been part of the anomalous world-- they have an uncanny ability, like many twins do, to perceive what the other is thinking.
Ruby has what her counselor charitably describes as ‘anger issues’ and fits of paranoia. Blake, on the other hand, is far more mellow and diplomatic, resulting in his higher rank, but can’t handle active gunfights as well as his sister, preferring to be more of a stealth operative when possible Ruby has been together with Christopher Hastings since late 2018.
Col. Raymond February: An agent of Squad 29, first appearing in Satyr’s Reign. The first explicitly African-American character I wrote for S&C Plastics, and is one of the few characters who is explicitly religious-- in this case, he’s an Episcopalian.
Sigma-10 is February’s third assignment in the Foundation. He originally joined it out of college, during a phase where the Foundation was experimenting with recruiting task force members under the banner of the contractor “Silver and Crimson Protectorate”.
His first assignment was as part of Stoker’s Stakers, a task force dedicated to the research into and eradication of various species of vampire. Unfortunately, his neglect during an assignment resulted in his then-girlfriend, Leah Cribari, being infected and slaughtering a large part of his squad. Leah was given medication in time to prevent a full-on change, but she’s vampyric enough that she has to be kept in the eternally dark and grim nexus of Eventide, Oregon.
Following this, he was assigned to MTF Chi-13, “Choir Boys”, tasked with guarding SCP-1983. Admittedly, there wasn’t much activity following its neutralization in 1989, but reports of similar phenomena popped up around the world, and he was tasked with investigating.
He got sent to Sigma-10 in 2013.
Lt. Allison Carol and Lt. Robert Tofflemire: A pair of agents first introduced in SCP-4040.
Alison “Alice” Carol thinks the world is grimmer than it actually seems. She always sees the dark side of everything, knows there’s a conspiracy around every corner. She’s a pessimist by nature, and her experiences in the Foundation haven’t helped. She joined in 2013, and while she didn’t have a true Initiation in the way the other agents introduced here did, she didn’t need it--she saw plenty of horrors in Mexico, where she was part of a cross-border anti-drug task force with the US Marshals. ‘Cynical’ would be a good way to describe her, but even the harshest cynics have an ounce of joy in them, and it can usually be drawn out by her partner.
Robert ‘Bob’ Tofflemire has been with the Foundation for two years longer than Alice has, despite being about two years her junior. One of his seminal experiences was seeing his friend, Kirk Wright, be carried off by SCP-106 into its dimension. He requested amnestics, only to find out he was deathly allergic to a compound present in them. He trailed into a spiral of nihilism as he was unable to forget the screams of his friend while being dragged into a hellish netherspace and having nightmares of him begging for his death. After a fair bit of counseling, he realized that fatalistic thoughts like the ones he was having were a waste of brain space. He may have overcorrected in the other direction-- everyone finds his jokes insufferable, most of all his partner, who is the only one who can ground him.

Minor Characters

Dr. Merrick Palmer: Site-87’s resident counselor. An older gentleman. I toyed with the idea of using him as a POV character to write in-universe psychological dossiers for other characters in this canon, but that never came to be.
Dr. Jonathan West and Dr. Harold West: Identical twin brothers. John first appears in Halloween at S & C Plastics, and Harold first appears in SCP-3773.
I’ll admit, they mainly came about because I accidentally thought that John’s name was Harold when I wrote about him after years of forgetting he was a character.
They’re minor characters because I haven’t really given them much of a personality, despite John literally both the first character I wrote for S & C Plastics, and the in-universe author for my 001 proposal.
Dr. Jason Hendricks: Cryptozoologist at Site-87, appearing in Attack of the Keter Skeeters. Has a crippling fear of insects. Panicky, paranoid, accident-prone. Has a trout-shaped birthmark on one of his cheeks.
Isaiah H. Pickman: The former archivist of Site-87. Presumed KIA in 2017.
Cpt. Nicholas Ewell: An agent sometimes appearing with Squad-29. Not much in the way of personality, but has a criminal past, and due to someone accidentally spiking the punch at a Halloween party with an anomalous chemical, has a tendency to turn bright yellow when he’s frustrated.
Dr. Ryan Melbourne: A memeticist at Site-87, first appearing in Stratagem.
Melbourne doesn’t have any particularly big achievements under his belt. He tries to fly under the radar most of the time, in part due to the fact that he’s a compulsive gambler. He’s been part of Gambler’s Anonymous for almost a decade now, and carries his chip everywhere.
Cmdr. Harold March: Commander of Sigma-10.
Dr. Claire Hennessy: Head of the Department of Multi-Universal Affairs. Red-headed, slightly curvy, and has an amount of sarcasm to match that of her partner. I've not gotten to do much with her, sadly-- I need to change that.

Canon Crossovers

S & C Plastics co-exists with quite a few other canons on the site.
Aces & Eights (alt): A version of Sloth’s Pit, termed New Toronto, appears in the tale It was a night in Lonesome October, a loose retelling of the first two Black Autumn stories.
Antarctic Exchange: Thomas Bailey, commissioner of relations between the Foundation and the Third Antarctic Empire, is the identical triplet of Tristan and Trevor Bailey, as detailed above.
Dread & Circuses: The tale “Herman Fuller Can Shove It Up His Ass” takes place in Sloth’s Pit. Spoilers for the Black Autumn tale series.
Et Tam Deum Petivi (alt): The events of the Mary-Ann and Salah series are canon, with one major exception: Mary-Ann survives her confrontation with Moloch, instead of succumbing to her wounds.
Stealing Solidarity: It’s not made explicit, but SCP-2117 ends up jumping into the S&C Plastics universe, where it remains to this day.
Third Law: Several pieces of supplementary material for the canon make reference to Site-87, and Dr. Katherine Sinclair appears in Suspect Ratio.
War on All Fronts: Hy-Brasil is mentioned at one point, and was meant to be the focus of a tale that I sadly didn’t have time to finish.
Wilson’s Wildlife Solutions: Again, a tale I didn’t have time to finish would have focused on an anomaly from Sloth’s Pit making its way to Boring, Oregon.

To Wrap Up

As I said, I've written over 100 tales, the vast majority of which are part of this canon. S & C Plastics is currently the second or third-largest canon on the site, having... 87 works in it, how about that? It's something I've been building up almost eight years, and this is my attempt to make it more accessible to a wider audience that may be intimidated by the scope, breadth, and sheer amount of works in it. There's a lot more here than I've presented-- the Black Autumn series, I.H. Pickman's 001 Proposal, and a few SCPs that mention it besides. I like to think it's been fairly influential on the site, but the fact that it seems to have trouble getting traction in the larger fanbase has kind of bugged me, so I'm hoping to rectify that with this post.
If you've made it this far, thank you for reading, and I hope you have a great day.

2020.06.19 20:29 Mattwotwrites [HM] Prone to Overthinking

Prone to overthinking, Craig was having to keep himself in check.
After 11 months with Vanessa this was their first Valentine’s Day and his friends had asserted that her expectations would be high. But the card and flowers he’d chosen had hit the sweet spot of extravagant, elegant and beautiful. She’d loved them. Everything was going well.
Until she presented him with his card.
“Thank you for the last 11 months,” she’d written. “I love you to the moon and back,”
His heart swam. Yet, his head wouldn’t settle.
“Dude, this isn’t good,” his subconscious murmured.
“What? What do you mean?” he thought, concerned.
“You mean… er…” his subconscious was flustered. “It… it doesn’t matter. Forget I said anything,”
“Go on. What is it?”
“It doesn’t matter. It’s just me. You know what I’m like when we’ve had a drink. Please forget I said anything. Just enjoy the evening,”
Vanessa leans in, and they kiss. She takes a picture of the flowers to send to her friends and mother before they snuggle into the sofa to watch the evening trickle away in front of the TV.
“Mum says you’ve done good,” Vanessa says, after her phone bleeps.
“That’s one down,” he replies. “Hopefully your girls will think the same,”
“They’re a tough crowd, but I think you may have just done enough,” she says, rubbing his arm. Sinking into the sofa Craig feels calm, peaceful and content.
“Well, I say it doesn’t matter,” his subconscious chimes in again. “It kind of does,”
But Craig doesn’t respond. Love Island has begun and the beautiful people begin a task called ‘The Good, The Bad and the sexy’. Had people worn the garments on display here, the old west would have been rife with sunburn, chaffing and yeast infections.
“And when I say it matters, what I mean is it’s A REALLY BIG FUCKING DEAL!”
“What the hell’s going on?”
“She doesn’t love us anymore,” his subconscious sulks.
“How d’you work that out?”
“Look at the card. What does she say?”
“She says she loves us,”
“No, look closer,”
He picks up the card to scan the inside. Noticing this, Vanessa snuggles in closer. “You’re just a big softy you aren’t ya?” she says.
“Yeah, that’s me,”
“She says she loves us to the moon and back,” he replies to his subconscious.
“Exactly! There’s a clause,”
“What are you talking about?”
“Think about it. If she loved us unconditionally, then she’d have put just a simple ‘I love you’ or ‘I love you lots’. But here she loves us a finite amount, ‘to the moon and back’. Not any more than that! Sure, she’s chosen a beautiful planetary body, but it’s literally the closest one to us. Uranus is further, and she’d have scored more points for comedy value if she’d put that,”
“You’re being paranoid. It’s just an expression,”
“Am I? Am I?”
“Of course you are. Look at her,” together they look down at Vanessa, her head resting on a cushion on his thigh and a hand resting on his knee. “You don’t have this level of intimacy with someone you’re looking to chuck,”
“I’ve got one thing to say to you… Gemma Crichley,”
Craig flinches. Aged 17 at a party in Danny Jackson’s house he’d spent hours holding Gemma’s hand, putting in the ground work, only to return from a beer run to find Jonathan Hunter plying her with Bacardi Breezers before sticking his tongue down her throat.
“This is completely different,”
“Is it? Is it? Just watch her,”
Back on Love Island the cowboys are saving their damsel’s in distress in the traditional fashion. Each has to untie their partner from railway lines using their teeth before sweeping her up and kissing. In speedos and chaps.
“There you go, did you feel it?” it asks.
“Feel what?”
“Her heart beat faster when that guy with the fancy hair came on. She clearly fancies him,”
“So, what if she does? Everyone fancies someone off TV,”
“True, but look at him. He’s well over 6 feet, big muscles and with no identifiable hair on his body. He’s some sort of human 2.0., how can we compete with that?”
“We don’t have to compete with that. This show is not representative of society. They’re selected because of their physical features. They aren’t going to put someone ‘normal’ on TV because people think it doesn’t sell. But, she doesn’t compare us to them in the same way that we don’t compare her to… Scarlett Johansson,”
“Bullshit, and you know it! Everyone compares everyone to everyone. Your hair matters, your clothes matter, the size of your pecker most definitely matters. Anyone that’s says it doesn’t is a liar or an idiot,”
Craig fidgets. Not wanting to admit it to himself, but something in those words had touched a nerve. He tries to shake it off, but the guy with the hair is back and trying to be funny. He can feel his bile rising. When you have low body fat then surely you don’t need to infringe on funny. To make matters worse, his really obvious punchline had everyone falling about.
Vanessa chuckles.
“You couldn’t have got away with that kind of joke. You’d have to Bill Hicks the shit out of something to even crack a smile,”
The chuckle turns to a full-blown laugh.
“All that needs to happen is for her to find him funny. That’s the first in. She fell for you because of your sense of humour, but if someone else can out-funny you, then it all boils down to who brings it physically. And can you compete with that?”
Despite his staunch resolve, Craig can feel his common sense being sodomised by the crazy phallus of his subconscious. Every single imaginable situation where he had seen Vanessa conversing with a man was now being analysed – the Amazon delivery guy that always gives a lingering wink - the Barista who’d asked her if she liked it milky – the green grocer that suggestively handed her the cucumber.
“If you are right, and I’m not saying you are. Then what should I do?”
There’s silence until his sub conscious replies quite matter-of-factly. “It’s simple. You do something spectacular!”
“Spectacular?”
“Yeah, you can’t sit back now, you’ve left it too long. We’re beyond the point of no return. You have to go nuclear,”
“Shit!” he thinks, chastising himself for sleeping through all those Richard Curtis films. What could he do? Did he know how to go full-on nuclear? Or could he just dirty bomb? Better still could we get away with something far less spectacular, but be carbon-neutral? He shakes himself, trying to remember what his original train of thought had been.
“Oh my God, that’s hilarious,” Vanessa says.
Craig doesn’t know what he’s missed, but it’s something to do with the guy with the hair and it’s substantial enough to get her up from his lap, laughing on the edge of her seat.
“He’s so funny,” she says.
“We’re screwed,” it whines.
Then, out of nowhere, inspiration strikes. The idea materialising so fast Craig gasps internally.
“That’s it!” he thinks.
“What? What is it?” it enquires.
His subconscious is alive, fidgeting and clambering to gain some insight into what Craig is to do but gets nothing, he’s being driven by pure instinct.
“You ok?” Vanessa asks, as Craig bolts upright. He turns to face her, still trying to find the right words. “Craig?” she enquires, concerned.
“I’m fine. In fact, I’ve never been better,” he says, stepping forward and taking her hand. “Over the last year, I can truly say that I’ve never been happier, and it’s made me realise that I never want it to end,” and with that he gets down on one knee.
“Go on, mate!” it yells.
“So, will you marry me?”
It’s only for milliseconds, but the shock on Vanessa’s face is real as she absorbs what’s happened. This momentous thing. Before, her face erupts into delight, and she flings her arms around him.
“I will,” she squeals.
They embrace and kiss, long and affectionately. Momentarily the world is blissfully quiet.
“She’s smothering us,” it says. “How are we going to get out of this one?”

2020.06.07 00:00 hallach_halil Biggest remaining needs for each team in the NFC

The big free agency period and draft are now in the books, so we have reached what I like to call the “dark hole” of the offseason. You don’t have a lot of trades or signings going on and the biggest news are about teams changing their uniforms. However, what this part of the year allows me to do, is watch the film of some players I wasn’t really able to during the regular season and evaluate how teams are built.
I looked through the rosters of all 32 NFL organizations and tried to pin-point the one spot they could still use an upgrade at. That can be a very specific fit for their scheme, a true impact starter, depth at a certain position group or whatever. I tried to go through some of the areas of improvement I looked at, how they might have addressed some of them already and how I got to the conclusion of what their biggest need is.
I will put out my AFC version of this next week.

NFC North:


Chicago Bears – Strong safety

There are certainly question marks about Chicago’s offense, starting with the battle for the starting quarterback gig, but if the Bears are going to be in the mix for this division, they will have to dominate on defense once again. Looking at this unit last year, the D-line was hurting with Akiem Hicks out, but even when Roquan Smith missed time, Nick Kwiatkowski filled in nicely (earning himself a pretty good contract with the Raiders) and while they did lose Prince Amukara in free agency, I think 50th overall draft pick Jaylon Johnson is ready to step in and contribute right away. The one spot I still have questions about is strong safety. Chicago lost Adrian Amos last offseason and took a step back with Haha Clinton-Dix. They might be getting worse again. It just looked like a battle between Deon Bush, Jordan Lucas and maybe Kentrell Brice to pair up with Eddie Jackson. The Bears did sign Tashaun Gipson a good two weeks ago after the Texans let him go, but he will turn 30 in August and probably played the worst season of his career in 2019. While he did make 11 plays on the ball, his play in deep coverage was rather questionable and he missed 15 percent of his tackling attempts. Eddie Jackson is one of the elite safeties in the league and has the instincts and range to play single-high more, but as it stands, the Bears do want to run quite a few two-high safety looks and then be able to rotate them in kind of an interchangeable fashion. I’m not sure if you can expect that from Gipson, since he biggest issue come to daylight when he is put in space with great athletes, That’s one of the reason I was so annoyed with the Bears selecting Notre Dame tight-end Cole Kmet with their second-round pick in the draft, when Minnesota’s Antoine Winfield Jr. was on the board and would have been a perfect match here.

Detroit Lions – Punter

For a team that just had the third pick in the draft, the Lions have a pretty complete roster in my opinion. You can look at the guard position, since they did lose Graham Glasgow in free agency and Joe Dahl was sub-par in his only season as a starter, but I expect their third- and fourth-round picks in Jonah Jackson and Logan Stenberg to earn the two starting guard spots. Edge rusher has been a big need for them in recent years ever since Ziggy Ansah first got banged up, but they did invest heavily in Trey Flowers from New England last offseason and I think Julian Okwara could be an impactful edge player if they get him to play more consistently. And they now one of the better trios of corners when healthy. Instead I am looking at a specialist for them – more specifically the punter. Detroit lost Sam Martin to the Broncos in free agency, who paid the 30-year old just outside the top in average salary among the position. Now the Lions go into camp with a battle between Jack Fox, who was an undrafted free agent last year, and Arryn Sippos, who they pay over two million dollars a year coming over from the Australian Football League in 2018 and then averaging 44.0 yards per punt for Auburn over these last two seasons, When you look at the Lions’ draft, they want to play ball-control and win with their defense. They selected Georgia running back D’Andre Swift 35th overall to form a dynamic duo with the often-banged up Kerryon Johnson, whose touches they want to limit. You can question Matt Patricia paying everybody the Patriots can’t afford, but with Jamie Collins, Duron Harmon and others I see what he wants to build on defense. If that is the way you want to play, you need to be able to flip the field consistently and I just don’t know what to think of their punter situation.

Green Bay Packers – Z receiver

The Packers are coming off a 13-3 campaign and a trip to the NFC Championship. While they did get hammered in San Francisco and the win total was kind of fluky with an 8-1 record in one-score games, this team was in situation where it needed to add those couple of pieces to remain a contender. The defense finished top ten in points allowed for the first time since their Super Bowl season in 2010 and Aaron Jones was their first 1000-yard rushers since Eddie Lacy in 2014. Green Bay had the 30th overall pick in the draft and everybody had them going wide receiver at that stop, but instead they drafted Aaron Rodgers’ future replacement in Utah State’s Jordan Love. You can argue with me about how Rodgers’ play has fallen off recently and I don’t hate the range the rookie QB was selected in, but for them to actually use a fourth-round pick to trade up four spots and take him there, when you just extended your current franchise player for another four years, 134 million can certainly be questioned. Even worse – they didn’t select a single receiver among an all-time great class. The Packers have to hope for Rick Wagner to get to back form and replace Bryan Bulaga at right tackle and I also considered interior defensive line after the 49ers just steamrolled them in the NFC Championship game, but I still hold out hope for some of those young guys they have on their roster. Instead I come back to the receiver position and in particular, I am looking for a speed receiver, who can stretch the field and create space underneath on post and go-routes. Davante Adams is a bonafide stud, but nobody else has been able to establish themselves as the number two, while Allen Lazard and Equanimeous St. Brown would definitely benefit from more space being created. The one guy who has it all, but simply hasn’t been able to put it all together is Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Minnesota Vikings – Outside receiver

The Vikings did lose quite a few pieces this offseason with Everson Griffen, Linval Joseph, their two starting corners and trading away Stefon Diggs, but they also just made the most selections in the draft ever (15) and have a lot of competition across the board now. Defensively they now have a lot of young corners they are looking for to develop and by bringing back Anthony Harris on the franchise tag, they still have one of the premiere safety tandems in the league. The D-line is a bit of a question mark with Griffen and Joseph out of the building. Ifeadi Odenigbo came on late in the season and Minnesota just signed Michael Pierce to a three-year deal, who might actually be an upgrade over Joseph at shade nose. Shemar Stephen played just over half the snaps last season and they other guys they have some other promising young players in Jaleel Johnson and Armon Watts, who have been learning behind those other guys. They also brought in some guys late on day three in the draft. So the bigger need at 3-tech would be for one of those candidates to emerge. I trust Mike Zimmer to fit those pieces together and look back at the offensive side of the ball. The Vikes are plugging 22nd overall pick Justin Jefferson from LSU in for Stefon Diggs, even if I think he did almost all of his damage from the slot. Contrary to popular belief, Adam Thielen actually lines up out wide more than in the slot, but what I like about these two guys is the fact they are kind of interchangeable. With the amount of 12 and 21 personnel they run, Minnesota only needs two receivers out there for about half the snaps, but I just believe they could use someone else who can play on the outside, since the depth chart behind them doesn’t blow anybody away and all those guys are better suited for an inside role as well.


NFC East:


Dallas Cowboys – Strong safety

Man, looking at this roster, this team is just so damn talented. The whole contract drama with Dak Prescott is certainly hanging over them like a dark cloud and the players still have to actually put it to the field, but they have all the pieces to compete for the NFC in theory. Offensively, they are still kind of re-grouping up front after the retirement of Travis Frederick, but they have added a lot of quality pieces in draft these last couple of year. Dallas is expecting Blake Jarwin to take a big step in his first season as a full-time starter, to go with a tremendous of trio of receivers, as they might run more 11 personnel than any other team in the league. While a large portion of their offensive production was empty calories and they did shrink in some big games, to me the defense is where they really need to improve. Their interior D-line rotation is outstanding and as long as they find someone outside of DeMarcus Lawrence who can stay focused, their pass-rush could be vicious. Depending on how Leighton Vander Esch has recovered from that neck surgery, they could once again have guys who can fly around on the second level. The loss of their top corner in Byron Jones definitely hurts, but their draft picks Trevon Diggs and Reggie Robinson II certainly have all the talent to play there, to go with a big group of quality slot defenders. Instead I’m going back to the safety position. The coaches seem to love Xavier Woods at free safety, but I don’t think who they want to pair him up with long-term. Haha Clinton-Dix is an adequate starter, but he is really better suited in deep coverage and there is a reason he has been on three teams over the last two season, while being on a one-year deal with Dallas right now. With new DC Mike Nolan, the defense will not be as simplistic with single-high coverages, but you still a safety who can play closer to the line of scrimmage.

New York Giants – Edge rusher

The Giants went into this offseason with two major areas of improvement – protecting their young quarterback and getting after opposing ones. They finished bottom five in sacks and QB hits allowed, while nobody on the roster – since Marcus Golden wasn’t resigned (yet) – logged five sacks or more last season. Well, the Giants drafted Georgia offensive tackle Andrew Thomas fourth overall, selected another developmental tackle in Matt Peart (UConn) in the third round and one of my favorite guards in Shane Lemieux (Oregon) in the fourth. Big Blue did draft Oshane Ximines and Lorenzo Carter last year and they selected four linebackers in late April, with two of them having outside flexibility, but they lost their leading sacker in Golden and they just don’t have that true dog up coming off the edge. I like the signing of Kyler Fackrell, who should take over at SAM with a healthy competition for that second spot on the outside, but who will come around the corner and put the heat on opposing quarterbacks consistently? Leonard Williams – who they acquired via trade mid-season and have put the franchise tag on – has some edge flexibility, but I just see a run-plugging beefy D-line that might not be able to get home with their pass-rush. I liked B.J. Hill coming out of N.C. State a couple of years ago with his ability to beat guards, one of their 2019 first-rounders Dexter Lawrence can definitely create push up the middle and Dalvin Tomlinson is excellent at setting up stunts and twists, to create opportunities for his teammates. However, when you look at all those great offensive tackles in the NFC East, I’m just not sure who the G-Men have to seriously threaten off the edge consistently. If they can bring back Golden or sign one of those other veterans out on the market, I would certainly feel better about them. Also because it would help a young room of guys at that position.

Philadelphia Eagles – SAM linebacker

I had the Eagles as NFC favorites coming into 2019, but after DeSean Jackson went down following a monster week one performance, that entire receiver room was split into pieces and they were desperate for speed. That’s why they selected TCU’s Jalen Reagor in the first round, traded for Marquise Goodwin and drafted Boise State’s John Hightower on day three. With those guys added to the best tight-end duo in the league, a breakout back like Miles Sanders going into year two and a strong O-line to support Carson Wentz, I really like this offense. Defensively, they traded for Darius Slay, who was a top ten corner for a long stretch until he was a little banged up last season and they signed Javon Hargreave to add to the interior D-line. However, that whole linebacker corp may not be a strength for them next season. I like T.J. Edwards as a thumping MIKE and Duke Riley when healthy and kept clean can make some plays from the weak-side, but then at SAM I certainly have question marks. Right now it looks like Nathan Gerry and Jatavis Brown could compete for that spot, but depending on how they want to use that position, I don’t see them putting either one over the tight-end to control the point of attack. The Eagles drafted Colorado’s Davion Taylor in third round, who I had as about my 20th-ranked linebacker. He was basically a big nickel in college and certainly is the kind of explosive athlete who can make some splash plays, but he was never really tagged with box duties and weighed in at under 230 pounds at the combine. Their fourth-rounder K’Von Wallace from Clemson is a natural fit in the slot, but Philly also lost Malcolm Jenkins in free agency. NFL teams play with 5+ DBs on the field over 70 percent of the snaps on average, but against heavy personnel this group of backers could be exposed, and the two LBs they would keep on the field on sub haven’t been true difference-makers in the league.

Washington Redskins – Slot receiver

There are some things Ron Rivera still has to figure out about this Washington defense, depending on the status of Reuben Foster at linebacker and how he wants to assemble the secondary, but with a defensive line that now has Chase Young, Jonathan Allen, Da’Ron Payne, Montez Sweat and others, they are going to wreak some havoc. For this team it is really more about the offense and in particular what Dwayne Haskins can do in year two. His support system wasn’t great in 2019, with Adrian Peterson being their top back and their most productive receiver being third-round pick Terry McLaurin, who Haskins had just been throwing passes to at Ohio State and had an excellent rookie campaign considering the erratic QB play. While Trent Williams is now finally off the team, this year’s third-rounder Saahdiq Charles should at least be an upgrade over what they had last season and I like some of other guys they added. I would have definitely said tight-end here, but to get Thaddeus Moss as an undrafted free agent, who may not be the most dynamic pass-catcher, but is very reliable pass-catcher and an excellent in-line blocker, could fix that issue. Instead I’m looking more towards the receivers. I had last year’s sixth-rounder Kelvin Harmon ranked over guys like Patriots first-round pick N’Keal Harry and the Colts’ second-rounder Parris Campbell and then Washington got another one of my favorites this time around with Liberty’s Antonio Gandy-Golden in the fourth round. What do all three of those guys have in common? – They did most of their damage on the outside in college. McLaurin has played some in the slot and could move inside on 11 personnel sets, but their best true slot receiver is Trey Quinn, who didn’t even crack the 200-yard mark last season and caught just one TD. I certainly believe they could use an upgrade there, in the mold of what Haskins had in his one year as a starter in college with the aforementioned Campbell, to get involved on jet sweeps, shallow crossers and other easy yardage plays.


NFC South:


Atlanta Falcons – WILL linebacker

The Falcons defense was a mess last season, with a mixture of bad play and miscommunication. With all the investments they made on the offensive line a year ago, they could completely focus on the defensive side of the ball. I first thought about edge rusher for Atlanta, because they lost Vic Beasley, who might have never lived up to his draft status outside of one abnormal 15.5-sack campaign, but was still a high-upside pass rusher when allowed to just go. However, I think Dante Fowler will be an upgrade and their first-rounder from 2017 in Takk McKinley has shown flashes. I certainly have questions about they interior, where I thought they would actually go if they found a partner to trade up with in the draft. Grady Jarrett is one of the best 3-techs in the league, but he has barely had help around him and actually had to line up in the A-gaps more than he would like to. The Falcons selected Auburn’s Marlon Davidson early on day two of the draft, who I think best fits shading the outside shoulder of guards as well, so maybe they plan on moving Jarrett inside even more. Davidson played a hybrid outside backer in college, so he could play some heavy end as well and then you possibly have Fowler at SAM with more Over looks. The other options on the inside are a run-stopping Tyler Davidson and Deadrin Senat, who has some potential. I think a more proven 1-tech would have been a good addition, but instead I’m focusing more on the second level of the defense. Deion Jones is a super-rangy MIKE, who can cover shifty backs one-on-one as well, but Atlanta lost his partner in crime in De’Vondre Campbell. They brought in Fresno State’s Mykal Walker early on day three of the draft, who lined up a lot on the edge in college and could potentially start on the strong-side for them, but they still need a WILL, who can take away cutback lanes in the run game and punish single receivers for catching simple slant routes.

Carolina Panthers – Right guard

You could maybe nit-pick at a spot or two on defense for the Panthers, but when you spend all seven of your draft picks on that side of the ball, you can’t really complain and we really still have to see how they put all those pieces together. Instead I’m looking at the offensive line, where they just traded away Pro Bowl guard Trai Turner for a fragile tackle in Russell Okung from the Chargers. I would strongly guess that this was more due to cap purposes, but after losing Andrew Norwell in free agency last year already – who in fairness has been a disappointment in Jacksonville so far – that group has gone from a strength to more of a concern. I could see Okung move inside in order to let their talented second-round pick from 2019 in Greg Little develop, but he looked pretty lost out there as a rookie. John Miller who projects to be the starter at left guard had a solid start to his career with Buffalo, but took a step back with a lackluster Bengals O-line last season and Dennis Daley is really more of a natural fit on the edge. With what they have on their roster right now, flipping Okung to the right side and moving Taylor Moton one spot to the inside, with Little being thrown in the fire again, would probably put their best five out on the field, but I think they would be best suited to add another interior O-lineman to at least add some competition. New QB Teddy Bridgewater finished dead-last among starting QBs in intended air yards last season. I still have to see how that meshes with those vertical targets the Panthers have in D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson and to some degree Curtis Samuel, who I personally believe Joe Brady will use more on slants and crossers underneath – his version of Justin Jefferson so to speak.

New Orleans Saints – Speed receiver

When I looked at this Saints roster in preparation for my 2020 mock draft, it was tough to find a true hole on the depth chart. The one position I thought they could address was MIKE linebacker, since their only LB on their roster with at least 30 percent of the snaps outside of Demario Davis is now gone, and I thought Patrick Queen would be a good fit in this pass-heavy division. Instead they went with my top-rated interior O-lineman in Cesar Ruiz before letting Larry Warford go, which is a little bit of a head-scratcher simply because they only got cheaper – not necessarily better. Still, I think third-rounder Zack Baun (Wisconsin) will start at SAM and I love their undrafted free agent Joe Bachie (Michigan State), who I believe could start at MIKE for them as a rookie and then be subbed off more on third downs possibly. Therefore I went back to the receiver position, which I thought was their biggest area of improvement before bringing in Emmanuel Sanders in free agency. Drew Brees may no longer throw the deep ball very effectively or want to at all, but you still need to somehow stretch the field and clear space. Michael Thomas broke the single season reception record because he is a physical possession-type receiver, who they heavily target on slants and crossing routes. Sanders once was a true deep threat, but he is now 33 years old and wins more with crafty route-running (even though he had a step on the defense for a potential game-winner in this past Super Bowl). So with Drew you may not be able to fully utilize that deep threat, but having somebody who can use that speed horizontally on crossers and just to open up room underneath would help the other pass-catchers there a lot. Tre’Quan Smith has that long speed, but he hasn’t developed the way I thought he could.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Offensive line depth

No team in the league has shifted expectations more than these Bucs. It is not only about Tom Brady being brought in, but also Gronk coming out of retirement and some nice additions in the draft. When you look at their defense finishing 29th in the NFL in terms of points allowed, you certainly want to improve on that, but they quietly were the number one run-stopping unit in the league and they bring everybody back in their second season under Todd Bowles. They have all the players to take the next step, plus another chess piece in Minnesota Antoine Winfield Jr. as Bowles’ version of the Honeybadger, and they won’t be put in so many tough spots off turnovers by their offense, where the opposing team is in scoring range right away or these guys are just tired out. Their group of skill-position players on offense is up there with the best, so it’s really about protecting Brady. Now with Tristan Wirfs being drafted 13th overall to add to the mix, this starting five looks pretty strong. It will be between their 2018 third-rounder Alex Cappa and veteran Joe Haeg as well as about how much Wirfs can clean up his footwork in pass-protection – in a heavily shortened offseason program at the very least – who will be that second starter on the right side at guard or tackle. Either way, Tampa Bay should have one solid backup but I don’t know who they plan on being their seventh guy on gameday and I don’t believe a lot of people have even heard the names Brad Seaton, Zack Bailey or Aaron Stinnie before. I’m still very interested to see how much of a hybrid between Bruce Arians’ vertical passing offense and New England’s Erhardt-Perkins system – which allowed Brady to spread the defense out and create mismatches – this will be. No matter what, protecting the 43-year old legend is priority number one and you can’t be one injury away from having a liablity on the O-line potentially.


NFC West:


Arizona Cardinals – Secondary depth

The Cardinals went into the offseason with two major needs to make this Kliff Kingsbury offense work – a true number one receiver and a starting right tackle. A good month before the draft, it looked like they would have to decide on either one of the two with their eight overall pick. Instead they were able to package a bad contract of David Johnson and a second-round pick for superstar DeAndre Hopkins and I believe they found their starting tackle in the third round with Joshua Jones, who I had graded as a late first-rounder, which allowed them to select Clemson do-it-all defender Isaiah Simmons with that top ten pick. That’s about as good they could have hoped for and with beef added to the D-line on day three to compete in a run-heavy division, they can now address the 31st-ranked pass defense. I’m not totally sure about how they will utilize their corners. Patrick Peterson looked a little slow and old last season, but he should be a fixture for them. Last year’s second-round pick Byron Murphy out of Washington had some growing pains early on, but he was my CB1 in the draft and definitely showed fight as well as improvement throughout the season. The Cardinals also brought in veteran Robert Alford, so I could see them moving Murphy more into the slot. I’ve always loved Budda Baker as a little lighter version of Tyrann Mathieu and I still believe in one of their day three selection in last year’s draft in Deionte Thompson from Alabama, who only fell due to injury concerns, but has the range and feel to excel in a free safety role, if he can clean up his tackling a little bit. It will be interesting to see how exactly the Cards will utilize Simmons and another versatile first-round linebacker from in 2018 in Haason Reddick, but when it comes to true defensive backs, right now they probably rely on Jalen Thompson and the third-most popular Chris Jones in the NFL as their first backups in the secondary. That leaves something to be desired.

Los Angeles Rams – Edge rusher

To be honest, I’m a little concerned about these Rams. Acquiring Jalen Ramsey for two first-round picks is worth it for me, considering he could be the premiere corner in football for the next five years or so, and I like the players they selected in the draft in a vacuum, but since the regular season concluded, I’m not sure they got better at one single position. I think the combination of Darrell Henderson and second-rounder Cam Akers (Florida State) will be more effective than what they had in a banged up Todd Gurley and Florida’s Van Jefferson is an exquisite route-runner, who can produce right away – unlike Brandin Cooks, who simply hasn’t really been available. However, they lost a rangy linebacker in Corey Littleton and their top edge rusher in Dante Fowler through free agency, while not doing anything to improve the O-line. To replace Fowler, they brought in Leonard Floyd, who is a good Robin, but they don’t have a real Batman coming off the edge. In the third round of the draft they selected Terrell Lewis, who had top 50 talent, but he only had one full season with Alabama and I’m not sure if you can expect him to play all 16 games as a pro in 2020. Samson Ebukam has given the team some production and I liked their fifth-rounder out Oklahoma from a year ago in Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, but those guys might be more rotational pass-rushers. Maybe they hope for Jachai Polite to get his act together, but when you consider the Jets let him go early on after spending a day two pick of him and needing somebody on the edge desperately themselves, that is more of a shot in the dark. Obviously you have an elite player on the interior in Aaron Donald and he makes a lot of issues disappear, but nobody has really established himself on the edge for L.A. I also don’t know if Lirim Hajrullahu, who I had never heard before, can replace Greg Zuerlein at kicker.

San Francisco 49ers – Cornerback

Coming off a devastating Super Bowl loss, I believe the 49ers have done a really solid job retooling their roster. Trading away a team MVP in DeForest Buckner obviously hurts, but replacing him with a similar type of player with sky-high potential in Javon Kinlaw from South Carolina with that pick you just acquired and you pay him less than a fifth of the price, makes that much easier to swallow. Their other first-rounder Brandon Aiyuk (Arizona State) gives them any YAC weapon in place of Emmanuel Sanders and they basically got All-Pro left tackle Trent Williams for peanuts, with the retirement of Joe Staley pending. I’m not worried about the offense with Kyle Shanahan calling the shots, as long as Jimmy G can shake that fourth quarter of the Super Bowl. Their defense was elite already last season, but that doesn’t mean they can’t still improve, especially when you looking at their secondary situation. Richard Sherman, K’Waun Williams and Ahkello Witherspoon will all become free agents in 2021. Witherspoon is still so up-and-down with lackluster technique. I like Emmanuel Moseley as that second guy on the outside and Jason Verrett still is an X-factor here, because he was one of the rising stars early on in San Diego, but I feel like I haven’t seen him play in like five years. D.J. Reed is a really nice backup nickel and Dontae Johnson was a solid player for them in his first stint with San Francisco, but he has barely seen the field these last three years. As part as covering the slot goes, whether it’s putting Jaquiski Tartt down against bigger bodies in base sets, keeping K’Waun Williams at nickel and even a guy like Reed coming in off the bench, are all viable options, but in terms of true outside corners, you are looking at a 32-year old Richard Sherman and a battle of what are more backups on most rosters. The Niners are set for a while at several positions, but cornerback isn’t one of them.

Seattle Seahawks – Right tackle

I don’t understand how some people still think of the Seahawks as some kind of dominant defense. They finished last season 26th in the league in yards allowed and they gave up 20+ points in all but two games. I think they have issues at corner (depending on the status of recently acquired Quinton Dunbar) and without Jadeveon Clowney their pass-rush is underwhelming, with Bobby Wagner being the only elite player on that unit. However, they did go defense-heavy in the draft and I wouldn’t say they don’t have the bodies to compete, so I’m going back to the continual problem child. The Seahawks have ignored issues on the offensive line for years now and once again this time around I mocked a tackle to them in the first round. Instead they went with a surprise pick – as they always do – in Texas Tech linebacker Jordyn Brooks. They did select LSU guard Damien Lewis early in the third, but he was not nearly my top guy available at that point. They also cut long-time center Justin Britt and the powerful D.J. Fluker who has guard/tackle flexibility. So I certainly don’t believe they got better up front. B.J. Finney looks to slide in at center and in this offense without a ton of true drop-back passes Lewis at least competes for a starting guard spot, but Cedric Ogbuehi is still not the solution at right tackle. The Hawks went from one of the biggest liabilities at that spot in Germain Ifedi to a maybe even bigger one in Ogbuehi. In his two seasons as a starter in Cincinnati, the new acquired tackle was responsible for 14.5 sacks. These last two years he hasn’t been in the starting lineup and now faces the likes of Chandler Jones, Nick Bosa and others in the NFC West. That is a recipe for disaster. Maybe Seattle moves Ethan Pocic to right tackle if two other guys impress at those guard spots.

2020.06.04 17:08 ChildfreeFamily Help fact-checking a list of well known Childfree people

I'm compiling a list of childfree people for a blog. I have found a few lists online (which have been helpful). But in some cases they were not up-to-date. A person may have had children since being added to their list (example: I had to remove George Clooney who appeared on a number of lists). Or there might be some people missing who should be on the list.
If you have a moment to scan the list and let me know of any other errors or omissions it would be appreciated.
It has been fun working on this list. A few people on it surprised me. Thanks again for any help.
\Edit for clarification: the term "childfree", in the sense of this list, will be in regards to people who never had a child from a live birth, fostered a child, adopted a child, or was a step-parent.*

2020.06.03 23:48 hallach_halil Biggest remaining needs for each team in the NFC

The big free agency period and draft are now in the books, so we have reached what I like to call the “dark hole” of the offseason. You don’t have a lot of trades or signings going on and the biggest news are about teams changing their uniforms. However, what this part of the year allows me to do, is watch the film of some players I wasn’t really able to during the regular season and evaluate how teams are built.
I looked through the rosters of all 32 NFL organizations and tried to pin-point the one spot they could still use an upgrade at. That can be a very specific fit for their scheme, a true impact starter, depth at a certain position group or whatever. I tried to go through some of the areas of improvement I looked at, how they might have addressed some of them already and how I got to the conclusion of what their biggest need is.
You can also listen to my breakdown on Youtube and I will put out my AFC version of this next week.

NFC North:


Chicago Bears – Strong safety

There are certainly question marks about Chicago’s offense, starting with the battle for the starting quarterback gig, but if the Bears are going to be in the mix for this division, they will have to dominate on defense once again. Looking at this unit last year, the D-line was hurting with Akiem Hicks out, but even when Roquan Smith missed time, Nick Kwiatkowski filled in nicely (earning himself a pretty good contract with the Raiders) and while they did lose Prince Amukara in free agency, I think 50th overall draft pick Jaylon Johnson is ready to step in and contribute right away. The one spot I still have questions about is strong safety. Chicago lost Adrian Amos last offseason and took a step back with Haha Clinton-Dix. They might be getting worse again. It just looked like a battle between Deon Bush, Jordan Lucas and maybe Kentrell Brice to pair up with Eddie Jackson. The Bears did sign Tashaun Gipson a good two weeks ago after the Texans let him go, but he will turn 30 in August and probably played the worst season of his career in 2019. While he did make 11 plays on the ball, his play in deep coverage was rather questionable and he missed 15 percent of his tackling attempts. Eddie Jackson is one of the elite safeties in the league and has the instincts and range to play single-high more, but as it stands, the Bears do want to run quite a few two-high safety looks and then be able to rotate them in kind of an interchangeable fashion. I’m not sure if you can expect that from Gipson, since he biggest issue come to daylight when he is put in space with great athletes, That’s one of the reason I was so annoyed with the Bears selecting Notre Dame tight-end Cole Kmet with their second-round pick in the draft, when Minnesota’s Antoine Winfield Jr. was on the board and would have been a perfect match here.

Detroit Lions – Punter

For a team that just had the third pick in the draft, the Lions have a pretty complete roster in my opinion. You can look at the guard position, since they did lose Graham Glasgow in free agency and Joe Dahl was sub-par in his only season as a starter, but I expect their third- and fourth-round picks in Jonah Jackson and Logan Stenberg to earn the two starting guard spots. Edge rusher has been a big need for them in recent years ever since Ziggy Ansah first got banged up, but they did invest heavily in Trey Flowers from New England last offseason and I think Julian Okwara could be an impactful edge player if they get him to play more consistently. And they now one of the better trios of corners when healthy. Instead I am looking at a specialist for them – more specifically the punter. Detroit lost Sam Martin to the Broncos in free agency, who paid the 30-year old just outside the top in average salary among the position. Now the Lions go into camp with a battle between Jack Fox, who was an undrafted free agent last year, and Arryn Sippos, who they pay over two million dollars a year coming over from the Australian Football League in 2018 and then averaging 44.0 yards per punt for Auburn over these last two seasons, When you look at the Lions’ draft, they want to play ball-control and win with their defense. They selected Georgia running back D’Andre Swift 35th overall to form a dynamic duo with the often-banged up Kerryon Johnson, whose touches they want to limit. You can question Matt Patricia paying everybody the Patriots can’t afford, but with Jamie Collins, Duron Harmon and others I see what he wants to build on defense. If that is the way you want to play, you need to be able to flip the field consistently and I just don’t know what to think of their punter situation.

Green Bay Packers – Z receiver

The Packers are coming off a 13-3 campaign and a trip to the NFC Championship. While they did get hammered in San Francisco and the win total was kind of fluky with an 8-1 record in one-score games, this team was in situation where it needed to add those couple of pieces to remain a contender. The defense finished top ten in points allowed for the first time since their Super Bowl season in 2010 and Aaron Jones was their first 1000-yard rushers since Eddie Lacy in 2014. Green Bay had the 30th overall pick in the draft and everybody had them going wide receiver at that stop, but instead they drafted Aaron Rodgers’ future replacement in Utah State’s Jordan Love. You can argue with me about how Rodgers’ play has fallen off recently and I don’t hate the range the rookie QB was selected in, but for them to actually use a fourth-round pick to trade up four spots and take him there, when you just extended your current franchise player for another four years, 134 million can certainly be questioned. Even worse – they didn’t select a single receiver among an all-time great class. The Packers have to hope for Rick Wagner to get to back form and replace Bryan Bulaga at right tackle and I also considered interior defensive line after the 49ers just steamrolled them in the NFC Championship game, but I still hold out hope for some of those young guys they have on their roster. Instead I come back to the receiver position and in particular, I am looking for a speed receiver, who can stretch the field and create space underneath on post and go-routes. Davante Adams is a bonafide stud, but nobody else has been able to establish themselves as the number two, while Allen Lazard and Equanimeous St. Brown would definitely benefit from more space being created. The one guy who has it all, but simply hasn’t been able to put it all together is Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Minnesota Vikings – Outside receiver

The Vikings did lose quite a few pieces this offseason with Everson Griffen, Linval Joseph, their two starting corners and trading away Stefon Diggs, but they also just made the most selections in the draft ever (15) and have a lot of competition across the board now. Defensively they now have a lot of young corners they are looking for to develop and by bringing back Anthony Harris on the franchise tag, they still have one of the premiere safety tandems in the league. The D-line is a bit of a question mark with Griffen and Joseph out of the building. Ifeadi Odenigbo came on late in the season and Minnesota just signed Michael Pierce to a three-year deal, who might actually be an upgrade over Joseph at shade nose. Shemar Stephen played just over half the snaps last season and they other guys they have some other promising young players in Jaleel Johnson and Armon Watts, who have been learning behind those other guys. They also brought in some guys late on day three in the draft. So the bigger need at 3-tech would be for one of those candidates to emerge. I trust Mike Zimmer to fit those pieces together and look back at the offensive side of the ball. The Vikes are plugging 22nd overall pick Justin Jefferson from LSU in for Stefon Diggs, even if I think he did almost all of his damage from the slot. Contrary to popular belief, Adam Thielen actually lines up out wide more than in the slot, but what I like about these two guys is the fact they are kind of interchangeable. With the amount of 12 and 21 personnel they run, Minnesota only needs two receivers out there for about half the snaps, but I just believe they could use someone else who can play on the outside, since the depth chart behind them doesn’t blow anybody away and all those guys are better suited for an inside role as well.


NFC East:


Dallas Cowboys – Strong safety

Man, looking at this roster, this team is just so damn talented. The whole contract drama with Dak Prescott is certainly hanging over them like a dark cloud and the players still have to actually put it to the field, but they have all the pieces to compete for the NFC in theory. Offensively, they are still kind of re-grouping up front after the retirement of Travis Frederick, but they have added a lot of quality pieces in draft these last couple of year. Dallas is expecting Blake Jarwin to take a big step in his first season as a full-time starter, to go with a tremendous of trio of receivers, as they might run more 11 personnel than any other team in the league. While a large portion of their offensive production was empty calories and they did shrink in some big games, to me the defense is where they really need to improve. Their interior D-line rotation is outstanding and as long as they find someone outside of DeMarcus Lawrence who can stay focused, their pass-rush could be vicious. Depending on how Leighton Vander Esch has recovered from that neck surgery, they could once again have guys who can fly around on the second level. The loss of their top corner in Byron Jones definitely hurts, but their draft picks Trevon Diggs and Reggie Robinson II certainly have all the talent to play there, to go with a big group of quality slot defenders. Instead I’m going back to the safety position. The coaches seem to love Xavier Woods at free safety, but I don’t think who they want to pair him up with long-term. Haha Clinton-Dix is an adequate starter, but he is really better suited in deep coverage and there is a reason he has been on three teams over the last two season, while being on a one-year deal with Dallas right now. With new DC Mike Nolan, the defense will not be as simplistic with single-high coverages, but you still a safety who can play closer to the line of scrimmage.

New York Giants – Edge rusher

The Giants went into this offseason with two major areas of improvement – protecting their young quarterback and getting after opposing ones. They finished bottom five in sacks and QB hits allowed, while nobody on the roster – since Marcus Golden wasn’t resigned (yet) – logged five sacks or more last season. Well, the Giants drafted Georgia offensive tackle Andrew Thomas fourth overall, selected another developmental tackle in Matt Peart (UConn) in the third round and one of my favorite guards in Shane Lemieux (Oregon) in the fourth. Big Blue did draft Oshane Ximines and Lorenzo Carter last year and they selected four linebackers in late April, with two of them having outside flexibility, but they lost their leading sacker in Golden and they just don’t have that true dog up coming off the edge. I like the signing of Kyler Fackrell, who should take over at SAM with a healthy competition for that second spot on the outside, but who will come around the corner and put the heat on opposing quarterbacks consistently? Leonard Williams – who they acquired via trade mid-season and have put the franchise tag on – has some edge flexibility, but I just see a run-plugging beefy D-line that might not be able to get home with their pass-rush. I liked B.J. Hill coming out of N.C. State a couple of years ago with his ability to beat guards, one of their 2019 first-rounders Dexter Lawrence can definitely create push up the middle and Dalvin Tomlinson is excellent at setting up stunts and twists, to create opportunities for his teammates. However, when you look at all those great offensive tackles in the NFC East, I’m just not sure who the G-Men have to seriously threaten off the edge consistently. If they can bring back Golden or sign one of those other veterans out on the market, I would certainly feel better about them. Also because it would help a young room of guys at that position.

Philadelphia Eagles – SAM linebacker

I had the Eagles as NFC favorites coming into 2019, but after DeSean Jackson went down following a monster week one performance, that entire receiver room was split into pieces and they were desperate for speed. That’s why they selected TCU’s Jalen Reagor in the first round, traded for Marquise Goodwin and drafted Boise State’s John Hightower on day three. With those guys added to the best tight-end duo in the league, a breakout back like Miles Sanders going into year two and a strong O-line to support Carson Wentz, I really like this offense. Defensively, they traded for Darius Slay, who was a top ten corner for a long stretch until he was a little banged up last season and they signed Javon Hargreave to add to the interior D-line. However, that whole linebacker corp may not be a strength for them next season. I like T.J. Edwards as a thumping MIKE and Duke Riley when healthy and kept clean can make some plays from the weak-side, but then at SAM I certainly have question marks. Right now it looks like Nathan Gerry and Jatavis Brown could compete for that spot, but depending on how they want to use that position, I don’t see them putting either one over the tight-end to control the point of attack. The Eagles drafted Colorado’s Davion Taylor in third round, who I had as about my 20th-ranked linebacker. He was basically a big nickel in college and certainly is the kind of explosive athlete who can make some splash plays, but he was never really tagged with box duties and weighed in at under 230 pounds at the combine. Their fourth-rounder K’Von Wallace from Clemson is a natural fit in the slot, but Philly also lost Malcolm Jenkins in free agency. NFL teams play with 5+ DBs on the field over 70 percent of the snaps on average, but against heavy personnel this group of backers could be exposed, and the two LBs they would keep on the field on sub haven’t been true difference-makers in the league.

Washington Redskins – Slot receiver

There are some things Ron Rivera still has to figure out about this Washington defense, depending on the status of Reuben Foster at linebacker and how he wants to assemble the secondary, but with a defensive line that now has Chase Young, Jonathan Allen, Da’Ron Payne, Montez Sweat and others, they are going to wreak some havoc. For this team it is really more about the offense and in particular what Dwayne Haskins can do in year two. His support system wasn’t great in 2019, with Adrian Peterson being their top back and their most productive receiver being third-round pick Terry McLaurin, who Haskins had just been throwing passes to at Ohio State and had an excellent rookie campaign considering the erratic QB play. While Trent Williams is now finally off the team, this year’s third-rounder Saahdiq Charles should at least be an upgrade over what they had last season and I like some of other guys they added. I would have definitely said tight-end here, but to get Thaddeus Moss as an undrafted free agent, who may not be the most dynamic pass-catcher, but is very reliable pass-catcher and an excellent in-line blocker, could fix that issue. Instead I’m looking more towards the receivers. I had last year’s sixth-rounder Kelvin Harmon ranked over guys like Patriots first-round pick N’Keal Harry and the Colts’ second-rounder Parris Campbell and then Washington got another one of my favorites this time around with Liberty’s Antonio Gandy-Golden in the fourth round. What do all three of those guys have in common? – They did most of their damage on the outside in college. McLaurin has played some in the slot and could move inside on 11 personnel sets, but their best true slot receiver is Trey Quinn, who didn’t even crack the 200-yard mark last season and caught just one TD. I certainly believe they could use an upgrade there, in the mold of what Haskins had in his one year as a starter in college with the aforementioned Campbell, to get involved on jet sweeps, shallow crossers and other easy yardage plays.


NFC South:


Atlanta Falcons – WILL linebacker

The Falcons defense was a mess last season, with a mixture of bad play and miscommunication. With all the investments they made on the offensive line a year ago, they could completely focus on the defensive side of the ball. I first thought about edge rusher for Atlanta, because they lost Vic Beasley, who might have never lived up to his draft status outside of one abnormal 15.5-sack campaign, but was still a high-upside pass rusher when allowed to just go. However, I think Dante Fowler will be an upgrade and their first-rounder from 2017 in Takk McKinley has shown flashes. I certainly have questions about they interior, where I thought they would actually go if they found a partner to trade up with in the draft. Grady Jarrett is one of the best 3-techs in the league, but he has barely had help around him and actually had to line up in the A-gaps more than he would like to. The Falcons selected Auburn’s Marlon Davidson early on day two of the draft, who I think best fits shading the outside shoulder of guards as well, so maybe they plan on moving Jarrett inside even more. Davidson played a hybrid outside backer in college, so he could play some heavy end as well and then you possibly have Fowler at SAM with more Over looks. The other options on the inside are a run-stopping Tyler Davidson and Deadrin Senat, who has some potential. I think a more proven 1-tech would have been a good addition, but instead I’m focusing more on the second level of the defense. Deion Jones is a super-rangy MIKE, who can cover shifty backs one-on-one as well, but Atlanta lost his partner in crime in De’Vondre Campbell. They brought in Fresno State’s Mykal Walker early on day three of the draft, who lined up a lot on the edge in college and could potentially start on the strong-side for them, but they still need a WILL, who can take away cutback lanes in the run game and punish single receivers for catching simple slant routes.

Carolina Panthers – Right guard

You could maybe nit-pick at a spot or two on defense for the Panthers, but when you spend all seven of your draft picks on that side of the ball, you can’t really complain and we really still have to see how they put all those pieces together. Instead I’m looking at the offensive line, where they just traded away Pro Bowl guard Trai Turner for a fragile tackle in Russell Okung from the Chargers. I would strongly guess that this was more due to cap purposes, but after losing Andrew Norwell in free agency last year already – who in fairness has been a disappointment in Jacksonville so far – that group has gone from a strength to more of a concern. I could see Okung move inside in order to let their talented second-round pick from 2019 in Greg Little develop, but he looked pretty lost out there as a rookie. John Miller who projects to be the starter at left guard had a solid start to his career with Buffalo, but took a step back with a lackluster Bengals O-line last season and Dennis Daley is really more of a natural fit on the edge. With what they have on their roster right now, flipping Okung to the right side and moving Taylor Moton one spot to the inside, with Little being thrown in the fire again, would probably put their best five out on the field, but I think they would be best suited to add another interior O-lineman to at least add some competition. New QB Teddy Bridgewater finished dead-last among starting QBs in intended air yards last season. I still have to see how that meshes with those vertical targets the Panthers have in D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson and to some degree Curtis Samuel, who I personally believe Joe Brady will use more on slants and crossers underneath – his version of Justin Jefferson so to speak.

New Orleans Saints – Speed receiver

When I looked at this Saints roster in preparation for my 2020 mock draft, it was tough to find a true hole on the depth chart. The one position I thought they could address was MIKE linebacker, since their only LB on their roster with at least 30 percent of the snaps outside of Demario Davis is now gone, and I thought Patrick Queen would be a good fit in this pass-heavy division. Instead they went with my top-rated interior O-lineman in Cesar Ruiz before letting Larry Warford go, which is a little bit of a head-scratcher simply because they only got cheaper – not necessarily better. Still, I think third-rounder Zack Baun (Wisconsin) will start at SAM and I love their undrafted free agent Joe Bachie (Michigan State), who I believe could start at MIKE for them as a rookie and then be subbed off more on third downs possibly. Therefore I went back to the receiver position, which I thought was their biggest area of improvement before bringing in Emmanuel Sanders in free agency. Drew Brees may no longer throw the deep ball very effectively or want to at all, but you still need to somehow stretch the field and clear space. Michael Thomas broke the single season reception record because he is a physical possession-type receiver, who they heavily target on slants and crossing routes. Sanders once was a true deep threat, but he is now 33 years old and wins more with crafty route-running (even though he had a step on the defense for a potential game-winner in this past Super Bowl). So with Drew you may not be able to fully utilize that deep threat, but having somebody who can use that speed horizontally on crossers and just to open up room underneath would help the other pass-catchers there a lot. Tre’Quan Smith has that long speed, but he hasn’t developed the way I thought he could.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Offensive line depth

No team in the league has shifted expectations more than these Bucs. It is not only about Tom Brady being brought in, but also Gronk coming out of retirement and some nice additions in the draft. When you look at their defense finishing 29th in the NFL in terms of points allowed, you certainly want to improve on that, but they quietly were the number one run-stopping unit in the league and they bring everybody back in their second season under Todd Bowles. They have all the players to take the next step, plus another chess piece in Minnesota Antoine Winfield Jr. as Bowles’ version of the Honeybadger, and they won’t be put in so many tough spots off turnovers by their offense, where the opposing team is in scoring range right away or these guys are just tired out. Their group of skill-position players on offense is up there with the best, so it’s really about protecting Brady. Now with Tristan Wirfs being drafted 13th overall to add to the mix, this starting five looks pretty strong. It will be between their 2018 third-rounder Alex Cappa and veteran Joe Haeg as well as about how much Wirfs can clean up his footwork in pass-protection – in a heavily shortened offseason program at the very least – who will be that second starter on the right side at guard or tackle. Either way, Tampa Bay should have one solid backup but I don’t know who they plan on being their seventh guy on gameday and I don’t believe a lot of people have even heard the names Brad Seaton, Zack Bailey or Aaron Stinnie before. I’m still very interested to see how much of a hybrid between Bruce Arians’ vertical passing offense and New England’s Erhardt-Perkins system – which allowed Brady to spread the defense out and create mismatches – this will be. No matter what, protecting the 43-year old legend is priority number one and you can’t be one injury away from having a liablity on the O-line potentially.


NFC West:


Arizona Cardinals – Secondary depth

The Cardinals went into the offseason with two major needs to make this Kliff Kingsbury offense work – a true number one receiver and a starting right tackle. A good month before the draft, it looked like they would have to decide on either one of the two with their eight overall pick. Instead they were able to package a bad contract of David Johnson and a second-round pick for superstar DeAndre Hopkins and I believe they found their starting tackle in the third round with Joshua Jones, who I had graded as a late first-rounder, which allowed them to select Clemson do-it-all defender Isaiah Simmons with that top ten pick. That’s about as good they could have hoped for and with beef added to the D-line on day three to compete in a run-heavy division, they can now address the 31st-ranked pass defense. I’m not totally sure about how they will utilize their corners. Patrick Peterson looked a little slow and old last season, but he should be a fixture for them. Last year’s second-round pick Byron Murphy out of Washington had some growing pains early on, but he was my CB1 in the draft and definitely showed fight as well as improvement throughout the season. The Cardinals also brought in veteran Robert Alford, so I could see them moving Murphy more into the slot. I’ve always loved Budda Baker as a little lighter version of Tyrann Mathieu and I still believe in one of their day three selection in last year’s draft in Deionte Thompson from Alabama, who only fell due to injury concerns, but has the range and feel to excel in a free safety role, if he can clean up his tackling a little bit. It will be interesting to see how exactly the Cards will utilize Simmons and another versatile first-round linebacker from in 2018 in Haason Reddick, but when it comes to true defensive backs, right now they probably rely on Jalen Thompson and the third-most popular Chris Jones in the NFL as their first backups in the secondary. That leaves something to be desired.

Los Angeles Rams – Edge rusher

To be honest, I’m a little concerned about these Rams. Acquiring Jalen Ramsey for two first-round picks is worth it for me, considering he could be the premiere corner in football for the next five years or so, and I like the players they selected in the draft in a vacuum, but since the regular season concluded, I’m not sure they got better at one single position. I think the combination of Darrell Henderson and second-rounder Cam Akers (Florida State) will be more effective than what they had in a banged up Todd Gurley and Florida’s Van Jefferson is an exquisite route-runner, who can produce right away – unlike Brandin Cooks, who simply hasn’t really been available. However, they lost a rangy linebacker in Corey Littleton and their top edge rusher in Dante Fowler through free agency, while not doing anything to improve the O-line. To replace Fowler, they brought in Leonard Floyd, who is a good Robin, but they don’t have a real Batman coming off the edge. In the third round of the draft they selected Terrell Lewis, who had top 50 talent, but he only had one full season with Alabama and I’m not sure if you can expect him to play all 16 games as a pro in 2020. Samson Ebukam has given the team some production and I liked their fifth-rounder out Oklahoma from a year ago in Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, but those guys might be more rotational pass-rushers. Maybe they hope for Jachai Polite to get his act together, but when you consider the Jets let him go early on after spending a day two pick of him and needing somebody on the edge desperately themselves, that is more of a shot in the dark. Obviously you have an elite player on the interior in Aaron Donald and he makes a lot of issues disappear, but nobody has really established himself on the edge for L.A. I also don’t know if Lirim Hajrullahu, who I had never heard before, can replace Greg Zuerlein at kicker.

San Francisco 49ers – Cornerback

Coming off a devastating Super Bowl loss, I believe the 49ers have done a really solid job retooling their roster. Trading away a team MVP in DeForest Buckner obviously hurts, but replacing him with a similar type of player with sky-high potential in Javon Kinlaw from South Carolina with that pick you just acquired and you pay him less than a fifth of the price, makes that much easier to swallow. Their other first-rounder Brandon Aiyuk (Arizona State) gives them any YAC weapon in place of Emmanuel Sanders and they basically got All-Pro left tackle Trent Williams for peanuts, with the retirement of Joe Staley pending. I’m not worried about the offense with Kyle Shanahan calling the shots, as long as Jimmy G can shake that fourth quarter of the Super Bowl. Their defense was elite already last season, but that doesn’t mean they can’t still improve, especially when you looking at their secondary situation. Richard Sherman, K’Waun Williams and Ahkello Witherspoon will all become free agents in 2021. Witherspoon is still so up-and-down with lackluster technique. I like Emmanuel Moseley as that second guy on the outside and Jason Verrett still is an X-factor here, because he was one of the rising stars early on in San Diego, but I feel like I haven’t seen him play in like five years. D.J. Reed is a really nice backup nickel and Dontae Johnson was a solid player for them in his first stint with San Francisco, but he has barely seen the field these last three years. As part as covering the slot goes, whether it’s putting Jaquiski Tartt down against bigger bodies in base sets, keeping K’Waun Williams at nickel and even a guy like Reed coming in off the bench, are all viable options, but in terms of true outside corners, you are looking at a 32-year old Richard Sherman and a battle of what are more backups on most rosters. The Niners are set for a while at several positions, but cornerback isn’t one of them.

Seattle Seahawks – Right tackle

I don’t understand how some people still think of the Seahawks as some kind of dominant defense. They finished last season 26th in the league in yards allowed and they gave up 20+ points in all but two games. I think they have issues at corner (depending on the status of recently acquired Quinton Dunbar) and without Jadeveon Clowney their pass-rush is underwhelming, with Bobby Wagner being the only elite player on that unit. However, they did go defense-heavy in the draft and I wouldn’t say they don’t have the bodies to compete, so I’m going back to the continual problem child. The Seahawks have ignored issues on the offensive line for years now and once again this time around I mocked a tackle to them in the first round. Instead they went with a surprise pick – as they always do – in Texas Tech linebacker Jordyn Brooks. They did select LSU guard Damien Lewis early in the third, but he was not nearly my top guy available at that point. They also cut long-time center Justin Britt and the powerful D.J. Fluker who has guard/tackle flexibility. So I certainly don’t believe they got better up front. B.J. Finney looks to slide in at center and in this offense without a ton of true drop-back passes Lewis at least competes for a starting guard spot, but Cedric Ogbuehi is still not the solution at right tackle. The Hawks went from one of the biggest liabilities at that spot in Germain Ifedi to a maybe even bigger one in Ogbuehi. In his two seasons as a starter in Cincinnati, the new acquired tackle was responsible for 14.5 sacks. These last two years he hasn’t been in the starting lineup and now faces the likes of Chandler Jones, Nick Bosa and others in the NFC West. That is a recipe for disaster. Maybe Seattle moves Ethan Pocic to right tackle if two other guys impress at those guard spots.

The Dirt Sheets


Now it is time to take a look through the Dirt Sheets, the world of professional wrestling “journalism” has been hard at work trying to get insider scoops from all 4 brands, but they seem to be keeping much of their information under wraps. However we do have some scoops for all of you…

REVOLT
  1. Reports suggest REVOLT have filed a trademark for the name “Bullet Club” and “Firing Squad”, we currently have no clue what this could lead to, but many have speculated this could be an attempt to have teams or groups going by these names.
  2. The next rumour we have to pass along is that REVOLT management have been in negotiations to try and pick up some free agents such as PJ Black, Jonathan Gresham and Jay Lethal, as well as for ROH alumni, The American Wolves
  3. Through the grapevine, information has been passed around for REVOLT’s supposed plans for their next PPV, reportedly going by the name “PANDEMIC” as a two night event in the Florida area. Obviously plans can change so don’t take our word on this, time will tell the validity of this and any rumours circulating.

PRIDE
  1. Reports coming from withing PRIDE state that after Enzo Amore’s match with Roman Reigns, he has been placed on life support, we are currently waiting on word to make the situation clearer.
  2. Next on the dirt sheet is that Tetsuya Naito has apparently torn his ACL, we are unsure on whether this is 100% true or not, but when we receive word we will let you know
  3. The final rumour from PRIDE is regarding the next episode of PRIDE Wrestling, we are to believe Danial Bryan will open the show with a coronation after winning the PRIDE Championship last week in the Fatal Five Way.

Infinity
  1. Reports suggest that Damian Priest is on a path to success, with the understanding being that he will take Darby Allin’s Oblivion Championship from him at Genocide. Darby fans should not worry however as he is supposedly going to be going through multiple challenges in the coming weeks in compensation for that loss at the next PPV
  2. At Genocide we could see the debut of another new faction, with Jeff Hardy and Hiromu Takahashi already teaming up on Blackout II, this is reportedly going to spark the new faction, with Moustache Mountain also joining the ranks.
  3. The World Championship is reportedly set to be crowned at the PPV following Genocide in either a Triple Threat or a Fatal Four Way, the leaders of each faction will be the ones fighting for the title come that match, whether this supposed nee faction does arise or not, that will determine whether it will be 3 men or 4 competing in that match.

Apex Wrestling
  1. Velveteen Dream is reportedly in hot water with management behind the scene, with the idea being thrown around to write Dream off completely and giving his spot to someone else.
  2. Rumours suggest The Revival could be looking to repackage themselves with that embarrassing loss at The Big Bang where they lost two falls in a row, no news yet on what this possible repackage could be.
  3. There have also been reports that a new title will be introduced, it is understood to be either at or after No Time To Die, some suggestions for what this title could be are: Women’s Tag Team Championships, Hardcore Championship, Trios Championship or an Intergender Championship.

That's all for this weeks report, we had an exciting week of wrestling here, but now we look to the future and where these brands develop and what they become in the months and years ahead.

2020.04.20 20:23 HawkFan907 Final 2020 3 rd. Mock (thank the stars)

There are a lot of rumors flying around, and by the time I post this there will probably be more. Feel free to criticize the picks but the absolute WORST comments out there are "No way Team A passes on Player A there", or "Player A is so much better than Player B"
If you criticize, back it up with some knowledge. Some thing like "Team A doesn't draft players like Player A because..." It makes us smarter.
I also include Benjamin Robinson's Expected Draft Position (EDP). It's a conglomeration of all of the experts mock drafts. Very valuable resource this time of year.
You'll probably see some unfamiliar names at the end of Rd. 3. I tried to mix things up a bit as that is the part of the draft where things get weird.
RUMORS I INCLUDED

- NYG want either Wirfs, Simmons, Brown
- Andrew Thomas and CJ Henderson in Top 10
- Denzel Mims in Rd. 1; WR4 for some teams
- Seahawks and 49ers trading down out of Rd. 1
- Falcons trying to move up for Kinlaw
- Miami higher on Herbert than Tua
- Falcons trading up for Kinlaw
- Cleveland trading down for Ezra Cleveland
- Mekhi Becton slipping to OT4
- Tua falling because of injuries
- Reggie Robinson rising
- NFL higher on AJ Terrell than media
- K'Lavon Chaisson slipping to late Rd. 1

RUMORS I DID NOT INCLUDE

- Titans trading out of RD. 1 and going with a RT
- NYG considering taking Herbert
- Chiefs trading up for Ruggs (lol)
TRADES
No future picks involved because this year is such a weird situation with Big Rona out and about that you don't sacrifice your future due to present unknowns. The score is calculated by using the Jimmy Johnson Trade chart. Typically, the team trading up has to give up slightly more value to make the cost of moving back worth it.

CLE 1.10 (1300) - MIA 1.18, 2.39 (1410) Score - 1.08 Cleveland
SF 1.13 (1150) - ATL 1.16, 3.78 (1200) 1.02
TB 1.14 (1100) - PHI 1.21, 2.53 (1170) 1.06
SF 1.16 (1000) - LV 1.19, 3.91 (1016) 1.02
NO 1.24 (740) - LAC 2.37, 3.71 (765) 1.03
SEA 1.27 (680) - CLE 2.39, 3.74 (730) 1.02
SF 1.31 (600) - IND 2.34, 4.122 (610) 1.02
CHI 2.50 (400) - SEA 2.59, 3.101 (406) 1.02
SEA 3.74 (220) - DAL 3.82, 5.164, 5.179 (233.2) 1.06

1. CIN - Joe Burrow QB LSU EDP: 1.1 DRAFT INVITE
Obvi pick. Sneaky good O next year.

2. WAS - Chase Young DE Ohio St. EDP: 2.1 DRAFT INVITE
Who you going to double team? Like the DL equivalent of the Warriors adding Durant.

3. DET - Jeff Okudah CB Ohio St. EDP: 4.4 DRAFT INVITE
Nah Miami, don't trade up. No one has the balls to trade up for an injured QB. Detroit lands a huge stud.

4. NYG - Tristan Wirfs OT Iowa EDP: 7 DRAFT INVITE
I'm worried Gettleman will forget to blur his background on Zoom and you will get a glimpse of not only his draft board, but his Lizzo posters as well. I know that Simmons seems to be the rumor of the day, but Gettleman likes his big boyz. OT is also their biggest need.

5. MIA - Justin Herbert QB Oregon EDP 7.1 DRAFT INVITE
Tua stans hate me but this is the rumor right now. Last year no one thought Jones would go at six, but alas....

6. LAC - Andrew Thomas OT Georgia EDP: 12.5 DRAFT INVITE
Solid all around LT prospect. High floor. Imagine Okung, now imagine him healthy and in his prime. Rumors and fit give me lots of confidence in this pick.

7. CAR - Isaiah Simmons LB Clemson EDP: 5.6 DRAFT INVITE
Their D needs work, and the Taysom Hill (lol) of the defense is ready to make plays err'where

8. ARI - Derrick Brown DT Auburn EDP: 8.7 DRAFT INVITE
Game wrecker. Imagine Chandler Jones sack numbers with Brown clogging up and pressuring from the middle.

9. JAX - CJ Henderson CB Florida EDP: 14.5 DRAFT INVITE
A small reach, but a local kid fills their biggest hole. Rumor mill seems to agree.

10. MIA (TRADE) - Jedrick Wills OT Alabama EDP: 9.3 DRAFT INVITE
Trade up!!!! Move to get a legit OT. At worst is a Pro Bowl guard.

11. NYJ - Mekhi Becton OT Louisville EDP: 9 DRAFT INVITE
I'm not as high on him as others, but he fills their biggest need. How long until Gase gets fired?

12. LV - Jerry Jeudy WR Alabama EDP: 12.6 DRAFT INVITE
Who needs Amari cooper, when you can get a better version of him on a rookie deal?

13. ATL (TRADE) Javon Kinlaw DT South Carolina EDP: 13.8 DRAFT INVITE
Trade Up!!! The rumor comes to fruition and they grab Kinlaw.

14. PHI (TRADE) - CeeDee Lamb WR Oklahoma EDP: 12.8 DRAFT INVITE
Trade up!!! A hefty price, but this is the year to do it (u know, cuz Rona). Perfect piece for that offense.

15. DEN - Henry Ruggs WR Alabama EDP: 13.7 DRAFT INVITE
WRs are pushed down and Denver comes away with the one who fits their offense the best.

16. LV (TRADE) - Tua Tagovailoa QB Alabam EDP: 4.4 DRAFT INVITE
:( He drops only because of injury concerns. Chargers could snag him up, but find a plug and play starter with Thomas. Raiders move up a few spots and grab their QB of the future.

17. DAL - AJ Terrell CB Clemson EDP: 30.3 DRAFT INVITE
NFL seems higher on him than the media, but they are coming around now.

18. CLE (TRADE) - Ezra Cleveland OT Boise St. EDP: 42.1 DRAFT INVITE
Trade Down!! Reach Alert!!! Remember, analytics are back in the building and this guy rates as an extremely athletic player. Another rumor comes true.

19. SF (TRADE) - Denzel Mims WR Baylor EDP: 25.1 DRAFT INVITE
The NFL loves him and he has the speed to play in this O.

20. JAX - Xavier McKinney FS Alabama EDP 23.2 DRAFT INVITE
Here's a safety. They need help. Remember, tanking teams always build their defense first.

21. TB (TRADE) - Austin Jackson OT USC EDP 28.6 DRAFT INVITE
They get a great 2nd round pick once all top tier O lineman are gone. Jackson has the tools to be great. Worst case scenario, but at least they grab some more picks.

22. MIN - Justin Jefferson WR LSU EDP: 20.6 DRAFT INVITE
Diggs replacement. Good luck guarding him and Thielen.

23. NE - Cesar Ruiz IOL Michigan EDP: 30.1 DRAFT INVITE
Best IOL in the draft. Belichek zigs when others zag.

24. LAC (TRADE) - Jordan Love QB Utah State EDP: 22.5 DRAFT INVITE
Trade Up!!! They find a willing trade partner who needs picks. Love can sit behind Taylor. They get a great QB and a top OT.

25. MIN - Noah Igbinoghene CB Auburn EDP: 42.1 DRAFT INVITE
Why him? IDK I liked his tape.

26. MIA - K'Lavon Chaisson DE LSU EDP: 18.4 DRAFT INVITE
Why do I have him here? Pass Rush Win Percentage. It is abysmal. He is "toolsy" but he didn't produce. Screams Dion Jordan or Barkevious Mingo to me instead of a developmental star.

27. CLE (TRADE) - Antoine Winfield Jr. FS Minnesota EDP: 39.9 DRAFT INVITE
Trade Up!!!! Analytics strike again! Move him to any S position or NCB and he will thrive.

28. BAL - Kenneth Murray OLB Oklahoma EDP: 24.2 DRAFT INVITE
LB2 falls right into their lap. Leadership abilities not seen since Ray Lewis. Interviews alone could land him 10 spots earlier. Sometimes plays blind.

29. TEN - AJ Epenesa DE Iowa EDP: 28.3 DRAFT INVITE
Some people love him. I don't. Good production, poor combine. But on a line where he can be an interior rusher on third down, it is a great fit.

30. GB - Jalen Reagor WR TCU EDP: 35.4 DRAFT INVITE
They should take a WR in the first rd. this year and blow everyone's pants clean off. Compliments Adams well and is terrific after the catch. Also, can return.

31. IND (TRADE) - Michael Pittman WR USC EDP: 64.4 DRAFT INVITE
Pittman in Rd. 1? Not a lot of mocks have this, but they should. He is right in that Jefferson, Higgins, Mims tier. Seems like a Colts type pick.

32. KC - Kristian Fulton CB LSU EDP: 24.2 DRAFT INVITE
This should be his range. Has flashes of greatness and lousiness.

33. CIN - Josh Jones OT Houston EDP: 23.1 DRAFT INVITE
Solid OT pickup right here. He can grow together with Burrow.

34. SF (TRADE) - Trevon Diggs CB Alabama EDP: 30.2
Could he be the next Sherm? This is what roster mirroring looks like.

35. DET - Zack Baun DE Wisconsin EDP: 31.3
No Draft Invite is concerning, but the potential is there.

36. NYG - Yetur Gross-Matos DE Penn St. EDP: 26.9 DRAFT INVITE
The league seems lower than the media on him. Weak DE class overall. Nothing against him though.

37. NO (TRADE) - Patrick Queen LB LSU EDP: 25.1 DRAFT INVITE
Trade back and STILL landing the player they probably would have picked with 24? Karma is finally helping for once.

38. CAR - Jaylon Johnson CB Utah EDP: 39 DRAFT INVITE
Talent all around, but injuries this year introduce unknowns. Not in "win now" mode so they make this based on upside.

39. SEA (TRADE) - Joshua Uche LB/DE Michigan EDP: 68.9 DRAFT INVITE
Reach Alert!!! They are big on pass rush win percentage and he excels here. Also has the arm length they require. And they love Michigan prospects.

40. HOU - Marlon Davidson DE Auburn EDP: 53.6
Fits their mold of D Lineman. That's my analysis.

41. CLE - Julian Okwara DE Notre Dame EDP: 60.8 DRAFT INVITE
Pass rush ability. Great pass rush win percentage. Knows how to win. Some injury concerns.

42. JAX - Isaiah Wilson OT Georgia EDP: 47.3
Big boi who will solidify one of their OT spots. Could probably play either side. IDK, I'm not an expert. Start him on the right side right away. Was listed as a need on multiple sites.

43. CHI - Jeremy Chinn S Southern Illinois EDP: 43.5
Small school no one has heard of? Check. Freak athlete? Check. This Pace pick might actually work out. I'd take him in the first if I could.

44. IND - Jake Fromm QB Georgia DRAFT INVITE
Reach Alert!!! Too Early? Football IQ is through the roof, and seems like the kind of guy that Reich would like.

45. TB - D'Andre Swift RB Georgia EDP: 33.2 DRAFT INVITE
"Man this guy must hate RBs" Yeah I do. He could be fun in Tompa Bay.

46. DEN - Lloyd Cushenberry OC LSU EDP: 51.9 DRAFT INVITE
2nd best IOL in this class. Solid player.

47. ATL - Jeff Gladney CB TCU EDP: 30
They address their largest need here with a great pickup.

48. NYJ - Tee Higgins WR Clemson EDP: 32.1 DRAFT INVITE
Higgins has taken a big hit since the combine. The Jets get Darnold a weapon.

49. PIT - Ross Blacklock DT TCU EDP: 33.9 DRAFT INVITE
They need to replace Hargreave and they do here.

50. SEA (TRADE) - Justin Madubuike DT Texas A&M EDP: 51.6 DRAFT INVITE
Trade Up!!! They grab an athletic D Lineman who will slot in beautifully next to Reed.

51. DAL - Grant Delpit S LSU EDP: 33.3 DRAFT INVITE
What a fall. Top 10 lock at the beginning of the season to outside the top 50. You got to feel for the guy.

52. LAR - Jonathan Taylor RB Wisconsin EDP: 37 DRAFT INVITE
To replace a broken down Gurley with a blue chip talent like Taylor is insane. Fumble issues are his only concern.

53. TB (TRADE) - Kyler Dugger S Lenoir Rhyne EDP: 56.4
They needed safety help and grab a small school steal in Dugger

54. BUF - Curtis Weaver DE Boise St. EDP: 67.7
Absolutely dominant pass rusher in college, but is such a weird prospect overall. Buffalo will make us of him.

55. BAL - Laviska Shenault WR Colorado EDP: 37.1 DRAFT INVITE
This is a crazy steal, but could also flame out spectacularly. Such a weird year for prospects with injuries.

56. MIA - Clyde Edwards-Helaire RB LSU EDP: 57.7
Clyde the Glide lands with the Dolphins. Will be a game changer.

57. LAR - Prince Tega Wanogho OT Auburn EDP: 63.8 DRAFT INVITE
Injury prone but uber talented. Can learn from Whitworth.

58. MIN - John Simpson G Clemson EDP: 93.9
Reach Alert!!! Great tester, and has good film. I'm much higher on him than most.

59. CHI (TRADE) - Damon Arnette CB Ohio St. EDP: 51.7
After a trade back with Seattle, they land another piece to fix that secondary.

60. BAL - Bradlee Anae DE Utah EDP: 89
Reach Alert!!! Teams are all over the map on him. Technically sound and relentless, but not athletic. Ravens take a shot on him with their crazy blitz packages

61. TEN - Brandon Aiyuk WR Arizona St. EDP: 37.8 DRAFT INVITE
Steal Alert!!! Let Tanehill Cook.

62. GB - Willie Gay Jr. LB Miss. St. EDP: 83.5
Some red flags (cheating on test, punching QB in lockerroom) but needs to be in the conversation with Murray and Queen for LB2 (talent only)

63. KC - Jordyn Brooks LB Texas Tech EDP: 74.6
They need speed in a bad way and Brooks can fly.

64. SEA - Robert Hunt OT Louisiana EDP: 68.3
Injuries could cause a fall, but he is as talented as any lineman outside of the Big 4. If healthy, could start over Shell.

65. CIN - KJ Hamler WR Penn St. EDP: 56.6
Extremely dynamic receiver in the John Ross mold. Drops because of his drops.

66. WAS - Chase Claypool WR Notre Dame EDP: 68.8 DRAFT INVITE
No more Jordan Reed or Vernon Davis. A young QBs best friend is his TE (or in this case WTE combo) .

67. DET - Lucas Niang OT TCU EDP: 68.2
Such good tape in 2018 and played hurt in 2019. Will be a steal if healthy.

68. NYJ - Terrell Lewis DE Alabama EDP: 47 DRAFT INVITE
Steal Alert!!! Injuries push him down the board. Has everything you want but in a year where you can't get solid medicals... yikes.

69. CAR - Neville Gallimore DT Oklahoma EDP: 48 DRAFT INVITE
Steal Alert!!! Crazy athletic, but is he disciplined enough to make a leap? This is CAR arguably biggest need and they get a potential stud.

70. MIA - Ashtyn Davis S Cal EDP: 72.6
A safety has to fall, and Davis is the choice. Flashes first rd. talent, but makes fifth rd. mistakes

71. NO - Bryce Hall CB Virginia EDP: 69.1
Big, if healthy

72. ARI - Matt Peart OT UConn EDP 81
Uber Athletic OT could develop into a legit starter in 2-3 years.

73. JAX - Jacob Eason QB Washington EDP: 60 DRAFT INVITE
Ahhh yes. Push Minshew some. Could be a QB of the future if he plays his cards right.

74. DAL (TRADE) - Raekwon Davis DT Alabama EDP: 70.7
Such good tape early on in his career.

75. IND - Adam Trautman TE Dayton EDP: 86.4
Solid blocker, great short area quickness. They need some more weapons on O. Why not Kmet? Idk.

76. TB - Jordan Elliot DT Mizzou EDP: 73.1
Raw, but flashes excellence. Perfect pair with Vita.

77. DEN - Ben Bartch OT St. John's EDP: 99.7
Uber athletic raw tackle who could learn behind Bolles for a year, as long as he doesn't pick up the ability to hold.

78. SF (TRADE) - Jonah Jackson G Ohio St. EDP: 89.7
Solid all-around guard. Mediocre testing numbers scare off some teams.

79. NYJ - Cameron Dantzler CB Miss. St. EDP: 69
You see his Pro Day????

80. LV - K'Von Wallace S Clemson EDP: 122
Reach Alert!!! Mayock <3 Clemson

81. LV - Reggie Robinson CB Tulsa EDP: 139
A true wildcard in this draft. Could have a James Bradbury type rise into late Rd. 2 or go in Rd. 6.

82. SEA (TRADE) - JK Dobbins RB Ohio St. EDP: 49.3 DRAFT INVITE
Seahawks Twitter would lose it. Yes I hate RBs.

83. DEN - Akeem Davis-Gaither LB Appalachain St. EDP: 89.7
More speed on that D

84. LAR - Jabari Zuniga DE Florida EDP: 89.9
Steal this late

85. DET - Jason Strowbridge DT UNC EDP: 136.3
Reach Alert!!! Inside out rushing ability

86. BUF - Saadiq Charles OT LSU EDP: 122.2
Reach Alert!!! Red Flags but athleticism for days. Train him up for a year and you have a solid starter.

87. NE - Cole Kmet TE Notre Dame EDP: 56.7 DRAFT INVITE
Poor TE class, but they could develop Kmet into something awesome.

88. NO - Van Jefferson WR Florida EDP: 107
Thomas, Sanders, and Jefferson with Brees? Unstoppable.

89. MIN - Amik Robertson NCB Louisiana Tech EDP: 116
Reach Alert!!! Zimmer loves him some CBs

90. HOU - Bryan Edwards WR South Carolina EDP: 101.6
If his injuties heal, this will be a steal that will compliment their current corps

91. SF (TRADE) - Davon Hamilton DT Ohio St. EDP: 90.2
The rich get richer.

92. BAL - Matt Hennessy IOL Temple EDP: 63.4
Awesome center that falls a bunch for no reason. Probs a medical reason no one knows about.

93. TEN - Leki Fotu DT Utah EDP: 108.4
Beef. Fits extremely well next to Simmons.

94. GB - Cameron Clark OT Charlotte EDP: 201.7
Big reach, but much better than people give him credit for. Shined against Clemson.

95. DEN - Michael Ojemudia CB Iowa EDP: 128.7
New age OCB. Long and with ball skills, but still raw.

96. KC - Hakeem Adeniji IOL Kansas EDP: 133
Reach Alert!!! Also really high on him. Kick him inside to guard and he will improve his game, and still have that versitality.

97. CLE - Ben Bredeson IOL Michigan EDP: 105.8
More competition inside at G.

98. NE - Jonathan Greenard DE Florida EDP: 78.9
Steal Alert!!! More EDGE depth

99. NYG - Terrell Burgess S Utah EDP: 112.9
FS and Nickel DB. Might be a steal going this late.

100. NE - Logan Wilson LB Wyoming EDP: 115.3
He's good, and rumor has it the NFL is much higher on him than the media.

101. CHI (TRADE) - Damien Lewis G LSU EDP: 90.6
Mauler.

102. PIT - Donovan Peoples-Jones WR Michigan EDP: 86.3
Some players just fall, but in this case, they fall into the perfect situation.

103. PHI - Troy Dye ILB Oregon EDP: 89.7
Some speed is needed in the front 7

104. LAR - Alex Highsmith DE Charlotte EDP: 133.4
Reach Alert!!! Production is through the roof and tested just fine

105. MIN - Jack Driscoll OT Auburn EDP: 146
Reach Alert!!! Just an OT for some depth. Some people like him, I'm just meh

106. BAL - Thaddeus Moss TE LSU EDP: 122.4 DRAFT INVITE

2020.04.12 02:50 Speig14 3 round mock (no trades)

So with the 2020 NFL Draft just under 2 weeks away the mock draft season is in full effect. Some people are loving while some are HATING what they see. Which will you fall under in this one?
ROUND 1: 1. Cincinnati Bengals select QB Joe Burrow: Do I really need to say anything? They do still have Andy Dalton who really isn't a bad QB, but Zach Taylor is still a new QB who didn't show any loyalty to Dalton. Oh yea also Ryan Finley ain't it.
  1. Washington Redskins select Edge Chase Young: While personally I'd like to see them draft another position, and I think they trying extremely hard to trade back, neither happens and that d-line gets scarier.
  2. Detroit Lions select CB Jeffrey Okudah: Lions traded Darius Slay because some possible locker room tension and honesty he doesn't fit their man scheme. Well you know who does fit the man scheme? Okudah.
  3. New York Giants select OT Mekhi Becton: And this is where the (probably) first hate happens. Is Wills, Thomas, and Wirfs better? Possibly, but the Giants are reportedly enamored with him and the big freakish Becton starts out at right tackle possibly learns then replaces Nate Solder on the left side.
  4. Miami Dolphins select OT Jedrick Wills: And now the first shock. No Tua? Why no Tua? They tanked for Tua and don't even take Tua. Reports are Miami isn't in love with Tua and after 2 reports saying he failed 2 physicals maybe they are worried about him. But Wills is with out a doubt a top tackle which is a desperate need.
  5. Los Angeles Chargers select LB Isaiah Simmons: What no Tua? New reports also scare them. Maybe they do believe in Tyrod Taylor or sign Cam Newton or Jameis Winston, but in this they get the most freakish player in Simmons and he gets played everywhere making the defense more capable of keeping up with the Chiefs offense.
  6. Carolina Panthers select IDL Derrick Brown- I'm not in love with this. Brown is more of a run stopper that is OK against the pass. But Brown can create chaos up the middle and put pressure on QBs. And with a immobile Tom Brady, a Matt Ryan susceptible to pressure, and older Drew Brees that interior force could be extremely dangerous.
  7. Arizona Cardinals select OT Tristan Wirfs: The Cards are dramatically better after getting DeAndre Hopkins. Kyler Murray might be legit so they get the most athletic o-line in the draft. Wirfs should start at RT and be able to move to keep up with Murray when he rolls out to his right which is quite often.
  8. Jacksonville Jaguars select IDL Javon Kinlaw: After trading away Calais Campbell the Jags look to replace that important interior pass rush for their defense. IF the Jags are able to talk Yannick Ngakoue into playing this coming season the pass rush by Kinlaw could overwhelm the mostly lackluster QB in the AFC South consisting of Ryan Tannehill, Philip Rivers, and Deshaun Watson (the best QB here). Jags could take Tua, but are still very curious with Garner Minshew
  9. Cleveland Browns select OT Andrew Thomas: The Browns on paper have a very good team. Baker Mayfield shows potential, but was under so much pressure last year it hurt his development bad. So this off-season the Browns bring in RT Jack Conklin and draft Thomas to block the blind side. Thomas is the best pass blocker in this draft with the left side experience.
  10. New York Jets select WR Jerry Jeudy: Jets signed a couple tackles (unproven at best) to try and address the o-line to rid Darnold of his ghost. But the weapons for Darnold are almost non-existent. Jeudy while not the biggest or fastest is the best route runner in this draft and gets open that way. And to go along also has great hands.
  11. Las Vegas Raiders select WR Ceedee Lamb: The Raiders have made some great additions to their team this off-season, but still desperately needs some good weapons for Carr. Enter Lamb. Carr has a well known history of small safe play ball, but has shown with Amari Cooper to throw deep effectively. So maybe having Lamb will coax Carr back into that play.
  12. San Francisco 49ers select WR Henry Ruggs: The run continues. Its very VERY rare that a team from the Superbowl has a top 15 pick, but here we are. The 49ers were 1 overthrown ball away from winning and after losing Emmanuel Sanders who was overthrown enters Ruggs who is very difficult to overthrow. Ruggs however isn't just a guy to run fast. He is an exceptional route runner, has a 42 inch vertical, with great hands.
  13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers select OT Josh Jones: This might be a reach, but Jones is considered one of if not the best overall pass blocker in this class and with a big need with an immobile Tom Brady for 2 years they need that blocking if they want to win.
  14. Denver Broncos select CB CJ Henderson: The Broncos are not happy here and would probably trade back. But they traded for AJ Bouye, but lost Chris Harris. So they bring in Henderson to be opposite of Bouye to help cover long enough for Von Miller and Bradley Chubb to attack the opposing QB.
  15. Atlanta Falcons select Edge K'lavon Chaisson: After letting the oddly faded Vic Beasley go the Falcons did sign the up and down Dante Fowler, but Takk McKinley hasn't been the most effective. So enter Chaisson to put pressure on both to perform. And in the NFC South can you have enough pressure to put on Brees and Brady?
  16. Dallas Cowboys select S Xavier Mckinney: so the Cowboys let Byron Murphy walk and still need help at safety. So they bring in Mckinney who did everything at Alabama. A very good tackler, very good center fielder, very good in the box, very good playing corner. Not elite at anything but a very good jack of all trades.
  17. Miami Dolphins select QB Tua Tagovailoa: Well the slide stops with the original thought team. And it turned out a win. Tua is just too good to pass on twice and he will probably have a redshirt year and not play a single snap in 2020.
  18. Las Vegas Raiders select CB Kristian Fulton: The Raiders addressed their weakest position on offense and now address the weakest position on defense. Fulton definitely has room to grow but should develop into a good corner to help the iffy pass rush.
  19. Jacksonville Jaguars select S Grant Delpit: Rebuilding that defense is gonna be tough. While Delpit has issues tackling that isn't his main objective. He wants to be downfield attacking the ball stopping passes one way or another. IF the Jags can create pressure and force bad passes a Delpit could be there to take it away. Whether Delpit is playing centerfield, lined up in coverage outside or in the slot he will create plays.
  20. Philadelphia Eagles select WR Justin Jefferson: Eagles need receivers. Thats all anyone should have to say. Could grab a corner, but no. While Jefferson isn't gonna be great on the outside he is a quick and somewhat large slot receiver that will create chaos across the middle.
  21. Minnesota Vikings select CB Jeff Gladney: another team with an obvious need to be addressed. After the rapid decline of Xavier Rhodes and MacKenzie Alexander walking there is a HUGE hole at corner. Vikings must address it early.
  22. New England Patriots select Edge Yuter Gross-Matos: Yes with Justin Herbert and Jordan Love available the Pats skip them. I don't think either is a fit what they want in a QB. So instead they bring in a very dynamic pass rusher.
  23. New Orleans Saints select LB Patrick Queen: With Brees tenure in sight the Saints make a move to make one more run at a Superbowl. By bringing in Queen not only do they bring in a local boy, but a player to cover all over the field. Queen can hang with backs, tightends, and some slot receivers.
  24. Minnesota Vikings select WR Denzel Mims: With the trade of Stephon Diggs and Lequon Treadwell never amounting to much and walking the Vikings fill their other major hole. Mims has size and speed, but a limited route tree? However at the offseason activities Mims showed a much wider route tree than originally thought.
  25. Miami Dolphins select Edge AJ Epenesa: After making 2 picks offensively Flores just can't help himself. Yes they brought in Shaq Lawson and Kyle Van Noy who are power rushers, but Epenesa is the type of rusher he's had in Flowers and Van Noy. Lawson is also only on a 2 year deal really so this is also a future prep pick.
  26. Seattle Seahawks select IOL Cesar Ruiz: In reality i see them trading back or taking someone unexpected you know Seahawks moves. While a tackle would be a great choice to replace Duane Brown someday I don't think their worth it here cause they may not start. But you know the interior is very weak and well Ruiz is good. Wilson needs all the protection help possible and Carson needs help with holes opening.
  27. Baltimore Ravens select LB Kenneth Murray: Ravens are very good across the board, but needs help with speed in the trenches. While Murray won't be the next Ray Lewis he could be the next great at linebacker. With his coverage skills and more importantly the ability to rush the passer maybe the Ravens won't have to find ways to manufacture pressure.
  28. Tennessee Titans select Edge/LB Zach Baun: So Baun is a bit of a question. He can without a doubt play off ball linebacker and can rush the passes very effectively, but is considered too small to be a rusher. Baun however then has the ability to move all around the trenches to cover or rush from anywhere. While he is smaller Baun is very strong and quick to get in the backfield.
  29. Green Bay Packers select WR Jalen Reagor: YES THEY DID IT! The Packers drafted a weapon early. While I do like Higgins here to add size and contested pass catching, Reagor would be a great fit for Rodgers. The versatility to run deep routes, short quick routes across the middle and some creative plays all mixed with his speed and good luck defenses.
  30. San Francisco 49ers select CB AJ Terrell: Well the runner up champs are back up and add their future Sherman replacement in Terrell. Sherman doesn't have much many years left and the future must be considered before its too late. The fluid athletic corner should be able to handle all types of routes thrown at him.
  31. Kansas City Chiefs select CB Trevon Diggs: The Champs are up and they didn't change much this offseason. One change that happened was the loss of Kendall Fuller. Possibly the best corner on the tea leaves a big hole open. In steps Diggs who did overall have a great season minus one against LSU. Excellent coverage and ball skills. Former receiver turned corner only has 2 years experience there and already that good. Expect him to get better.
ROUND 2 33. Cincinnati Bengals OT Isaiah Wilson: Give Burrow more protection and Mixon more holes.
  1. Indianapolis Colts QB Justin Herbert: Philip Rivers is only around for one year so get Herbert in and learning from Rivers (hopefully) and Reich. The big arm QB should thrive in this situation.
  2. Detroit Lions DT Ross Blacklock: Make that d-line more ferocious.
  3. New York Giants Edge Julian Okwara: Dropped cause injuries but instant start here.
  4. Los Angeles Chargers OT Austin Jackson: Theres a glaring hole at LT.
  5. Carolina Panthers CB Jaylon Johnson: Released Bradbury and need another corner opposite of Jackson.
  6. Miami Dolphins S Antoine Winfield: Released Rashad Jones and need that physical safety.
  7. Houston Texans Edge Curtis Weaver: Phew what an offseason for the Texans. After trading away Clowney they never replaced him. Well now they have. Curtis Weaver is a big physical edge rusher who will get after the QB. Ain't no stopping him from that.
  8. Cleveland Browns S Jeremy Chinn: Talented, athletic, and physical safety to help in the back.
  9. Jacksonville Jaguars CB Noah Igbinoghene: Raw but speedy and good coverage.
  10. Chicago Bears IOL Jonah Jackson: While QB is still an issue they lost a very good guard in Kyle Long. Jackson should step in and give some needed pass blocking help for someone to help hopefully get some solid QB play.
  11. Indianapolis Colts WR Tee Higgins: Got the quick shifty play in TY Hilton and now the big body Higgins.
  12. Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Laviska Shenault: Brady gets that reliable slot receiver.
  13. Denver Broncos WR KJ Hamler: Not Ruggs but still not bad.
  14. Atlanta Falcons DT Neville Gallimore: Get more trench help with a partner for Grady.
  15. New York Jets OT Ezra Cleveland: The tackles aren't trustworthy so bring in some backup.
  16. Pittsburgh Steelers QB Jordan Love: The Steelers learned Mason Rudolph or Duck Hodges aren't the future. And Big Bem is on his last leg. So they get lucky and snag a potential first rounder in Love.
  17. Chicago Bears CB Damon Arnette: Still need corner help especially after Prince Amukamara left.
  18. Dallas Cowboys Edge Terrell Lewis: Yes some injuries but great rusher and versatile.
  19. Los Angeles Rams LB Willie Gay: The Rams need a lot of help now. Just 2 years ago one of the best rosters now lacking. While edge rush and corner is a need they need a someone to attack constantly outside Aaron Donald.
  20. Philadelphia Eagles CB Cameron Dantzler: Still need a top corner and Dantzler is very good despite bad combine.
  21. Buffalo Bills Edge Joshua Uche: A very good team lacking many holes after the trade for Diggs. But after looking Lawson edge rush is a need. With the division within their grasps the Bills just load up with talent.
  22. Baltimore Ravens IOL Lloyd Cushenberry: Marshal Yanda retired so an immediate need is filled here.
  23. Miami Dolphins RB DeAndre Swift: Change of pace from Jordan Howard.
  24. Los Angeles Rams RB Jonathan Taylor: Todd Gurley replaced by similar back.
  25. Minnesota Vikings IOL Matt Henessey: Vikings need o-line help.
  26. Seattle Seahawks Edge Jonathan Greenard: If they don't get Clowney back they have their rusher.
  27. Baltimore Ravens S Ashtyn Davis: Future replacement for Earl Thomas.
  28. Tennessee Titans DT Marlon Davidson: Replacement after Jurrell Casey was traded.
  29. Green Bay Packers TE Cole Kmet: Another weapon if Rodgers uses him.
  30. Kansas City Chiefs IOL Netane Muti: Big upgrade on the OL for Mahomes.
  31. Seattle Seahawks OT Lucas Niang: GIVE RUSSELL SOME PROTECTION!

ROUND 1
Cincinnati Bengals – Joe Burrow QB LSU 6’3” 221 lbs
This was the pick all along. They’ve done a decent job of deceiving people as there are still rumors of them possibly trading out. In most years, drafts typically produce one truly great QB when several go in round 1 (2005, 2009, 2012, 2016, 2017, 2018). I think Burrow is the only sure thing at QB in this class and I anticipate him being the best one by a long shot. If they can rebuild their offensive line, Burrow will have the weapons (Green, Boyd, Mixon) to perhaps make a playoff push in his rookie year. Cincinnati gets their franchise QB.
Washington Redskins – Chase Young EDGE Ohio State 6’5” 264 lbs
In most years, with numerous highly touted QBs available this pick would be up for sale. However, Chase Young is the ‘Andrew Luck’ of edge rushers (he has elite production paired with world class athleticism) and he plays arguably the second most important position on the field. With Ryan Kerrigan coming up on free agency in 2021, new defensive coordinator Jack Del RIo can pair Young with Sweat to potentially form the best pass rushing duo in the league. Trading back, even with the plethora of needs Washington has, would be foolish when a guarantee falls in their lap at 2.
Miami Dolphins (from Detroit) – Tua Tagovailoa QB Alabama 6’0” 217 lbs (trades Detroit 1(5), 1(18) and 2(56)
In an ideal world, Tua falls to Miami and they’re able to build around him using their war chest of picks. Unfortunately, the presence of QB-needy teams right behind them forces the Dolphins hand and they move up to get the guy they’ve coveted for months. They still have ample picks to restore the offensive line and get a running mate for Jordan Howard in the backfield. If Tua can stay healthy, he should be great. He never had a poor stretch of QB play in his three years at Alabama. If he busts it will be because of health.
New York Giants – Jedrick Wills Jr. OT Alabama 6’4” 312 lbs
The Giants sit in a peculiar position at 4. They could go several directions. Isaiah Simmons is arguably the BPA at this point and New York has a need at LB, but I think they want to give Daniel Jones every opportunity to succeed. Wills played RT (Tua’s blindside) at Alabama and will be a day one starter at that position for the Giants. If Solder can bounce back to being just average, their offensive line will make significant strides. I could see Simmons here, but I think Gettleman will go all in on Jones and pick the most polished tackle in the class.
Detroit Lions (from Miami) – Jeffrey Okudah CB Ohio State 6’1” 205 lbs
The early winners of the draft, Detroit moves back two spots and picks up two valuable selections while still getting their guy. Okudah belongs in the Ward/Lattimore tier in my opinion. He isn’t quite what Patrick Peterson was coming out of LSU, but he will be a great corner. With the loss of Slay, Okudah moves ahead of Derrick Brown for Detroit at 5. If Amani Oruwariye can continue his promising development, their partnership could blossom into one of the best secondaries in the league. The Ohio State product checks all the boxes and has a pro-bowl floor and an all-pro ceiling.
Los Angeles Chargers – Justin Herbert QB Oregon 6’6” 236 lbs
In this scenario, the Chargers sign Newton and trade for Trent Williams putting them into playoff contention immediately. They can go a few routes at 6. Tom Telesco can grab Simmons and create the most versatile defensive backfield in the league or take Wirfs and create a monster offensive line in one offseason. I still think they will desire a long-term answer at QB. A Herbert/Newton combination is the most intriguing veteran/rookie pairing in a long time. The Oregon product will provide the mobility, precision, and intangibles needed to succeed in the NFL. He will have a rebuilt veteran offensive line in front of him and several weapons. The question will be can Lynn, Steichen, and co. bring the best out of him.
Carolina Panthers – Isaiah Simmons LB Clemson 6’4” 238 lbs
If the draft plays out in this fashion, the Panthers will have four options at 7. They can trade out, take Derrick Brown, Tristan Wirfs, or Simmons. I think all three players make sense. Interior defensive line is a huge need after losing Butler and Addison. Brown is as good as it gets there. Wirfs could be an all-pro guard and switch out to tackle if Little doesn’t work out. Rhule has always been enamored with speed and length while at Temple and Baylor. Simmons has every physical trait one could ask for in a defender and he backed that up with great production. He will slot in next to Shaq Thompson and create a dynamic linebacking pair.
Arizona Cardinals – Derrick Brown DT Auburn 6’5” 326 lbs
After the acquisition of Hopkins, the Cardinals have two glaring holes on the roster. Offensive tackle (particularly RT) and interior defensive line. They’ll have quite the decision to make with Wirfs on the board, but I think they’ll go BPA and take Brown. Without a second-round pick, their early 3rd will have to be offensive line. I think they’ll prefer OT options over DT options at 72. Brown can come in and play next to new signee Jordan Phillips to help stifle the run game and create interior pressure. The Cardinals desperately need defensive upgrades and the prospects on that side of the ball are too tantalizing to pass up in the top 10.
Jacksonville Jaguars – CeeDee Lamb WR Oklahoma 6’2” 198 lbs
With Brown off the board, the Jags go and get their new top wideout. I think Jordan Love could be an option here if the board falls this way, but I think Jacksonville is eyeing 2021 to get their QB. The best way to find out if Minshew is the answer is to surround him with talent and give him every opportunity to throw the ball. I think Lamb and Chark will complement each other perfectly and should give this offense a huge boost. If it doesn’t work out, then maybe Fields or Lawrence will take advantage of a Lamb/Chark combination in 2021.
Cleveland Browns – Andrew Thomas OT Georgia 6’5” 315 lbs
At 10, only one tackle is off the board leaving Thomas, Wirfs, and Becton to choose from for the Browns. After signing Conklin in free agency, Cleveland must fill their hole at LT. Wirfs played mostly on the right at Iowa, although he projects to both sides as well as guard. Becton played LT at Louisville and is a physical specimen but struggled in pass pro. Thomas has been underrated in general by the media. I don’t think NFL teams see it the same way. He played 41 games in the SEC starting as an 18-year-old freshmen. He may not have the athletic upside of Wirfs or Becton, but he played better against superior competition. He should start immediately protecting Mayfield’s blindside.
New York Jets – Mehki Becton OT Louisville 6’7” 364 lbs
If Becton is still available at this point, Joe Douglas will have a hard time passing up on his enticing athletic upside, especially for a team like the Jets in desperate need of offensive line help. Of the four top offensive tackle prospects, Becton (along with Thomas) were the only ones who played the majority of their snaps on the left side protecting their QB’s blindside. He is a force in the run game but mostly an unknown in pass pro (which should cause a slight fall). The Jets invested heavily in Le’Veon Bell last offseason and his first year was fairly disappointing. Becton will go a long way in creating the space and time needed for Bell to have a bounce back year. If the run game can significantly improve with Becton as the day one starter at LT, then Darnold should also make strides in that offense.
Las Vegas Raiders – Jerry Jeudy WR Alabama 6’1” 193 lbs
An under-the-radar team if Carr steps his play up will be the new Las Vegas Raiders. Mayock and Gruden have done well constructing a roster with few needs. With the draft capital they have accrued, they are one solid draft away from being one of the most complete teams in the league. They do, however, have legitimately large holes at receiver and corner which they will look to address with their two first round picks. After Lamb went top 10, Vegas will have to choose between Jeudy, Ruggs, and Henderson. I think given their investment in Tyrell Williams last offseason, they’ll go for the more polished route runner and consistent performer in college. Jeudy has arguably been seen as the best WR prospect for this draft class. I think he’ll fit well with Carr (who doesn’t like to throw the ball deep down the field) and quickly emerge as the top wideout for Las Vegas.
Denver Broncos (from San Francisco through Indianapolis) – Henry Ruggs III WR Alabama 5’11” 188 lbs (trades San Francisco 1(15), and 3(77)
With San Francisco looking to gain day 2 draft capital, they swallow their infatuation with Ruggs and swap spots with Denver. The Broncos are another team with a fairly complete roster and by pairing Sutton with Ruggs you give Lock two very different but legitimate receivers. His addition will give Denver a more dangerous deep passing attack in the thin Denver air. If Lock turns out to be the franchise QB (which is a big IF), surrounding him with the weapons that Denver has acquired the last few years is the perfect situation to feel out his competence. With only a few holes (CB, T/G) on the roster, Denver can afford to trade their war chest of day 2 picks to move up and grab the receiver (or corner) that they covet.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Tristan Wirfs OT Iowa 6’5” 320 lbs
The Buccaneers are fortunate to have a player like Wirfs fall into their laps. With Brady at the helm for the next two years, Tampa must invest in players who can make an immediate impact. With Dotson remaining unsigned and 34 years old, their need at RT is apparent. Protecting Brady will be at the forefront of their draft strategy and there may not be a better fit than Wirfs. The Iowa product was the first offensive tackle to start as a true freshman under Kirk Ferentz. Although his play was erratic at times, he showed versatility playing both sides. His absolute floor is a good starting guard at the next level, but his ceiling is a ten plus year blindside protector. He should come in and compete for the start at RT opposite Donovan Smith.
San Francisco 49ers (from Denver) – C.J Henderson CB Florida 6’1” 204 lbs
John Lynch and co. decide to pass on the first tier of receivers given the depth of the class. Corner has become, in my opinion, more valuable each year and I think San Francisco will view that the same way (especially when considering their last game). Henderson may not be in the same class as Okudah, but he’s a hair above the next crop of CBs. As a purely traits-based coverage defender, Henderson rivals anyone in the class with his blend of speed, oily hips, and length. Tackling and run defending will be an issue, but I’m confident that with guidance from Richard Sherman, he will make strides in that area. By year two, Henderson should take over as the primary corner if Sherman were to leave in free agency.
Atlanta Falcons – Javon Kinlaw DT South Carolina 6’5” 324 lbs
In this year’s draft, I anticipate a break in the top tier of prospects around the middle of the first round. In this scenario, the break occurs at pick 16. Kinlaw is the last prospect that is justifiable in the top 10. The former Gamecock has the prototypical size and length to play all along the defensive line but is still a raw prospect. For Atlanta, interior defensive line remains a question mark after Grady Jarrett (with Senat having yet to step up). Pairing Jarrett and Kinlaw on the inside could create an incredible interior rush that could help stifle the pass happy NFC South and get the Falcons defense back on track.
Dallas Cowboys – K’Lavon Chaisson EDGE LSU 6’3” 254 lbs
This is mostly a projections-based pick. Chaisson is one of the youngest prospects available and his athleticism is through the roof. The Cowboys have a significant need opposite Demarcus Lawrence and could use a versatile edge defender like Chaisson. He has the ability to rush, cover, and defend the run at a high level. At LSU, he never had stellar production, but the arrow is pointing up. He finished the year with 4.5 sacks in his last 4 games against tough opposition and is renowned by his coaches for his character. A smart player with elite athleticism that played well against NFL talent week in and week out at LSU usually don’t last very long in the draft.
Indianapolis Colts (from Detroit through Miami through Pittsburgh) – Jordan Love QB Utah State 6’3” 234 lbs (trades Detroit 2(34), 2(44), and 4(122)
We always underestimate how often teams become enamored with QBs. I think it’s possible that the top four QB prospects are off the board within the first half of the first round. If there’s a straggler (most likely to be Love), a team will almost certainly move up to take him. For me, the Colts made the most sense for a few reasons. They signed Rivers to be their starter, but only for one year. I think they’ll be too good next year to hope for Lawrence or Fields in 2021. This is the perfect draft to bring in a raw prospect like Love, who has all the tools to be a successful pro and sit him behind Rivers for a year. The cost to move up wasn’t significant for Indianapolis given Detroit’s desire to move down again.
Las Vegas Raiders (from Chicago) – Kristian Fulton CB LSU 6’0” 197 lbs
The Raiders are in a great spot to address their two most pressing needs. Luckily for them their second pick falls one spot ahead of the corner-needy Jags. The last consensus first round corner is Fulton. If it wasn’t for a down year in 2019, the LSU defensive back would be gone by now. If Las Vegas exonerates his 2019 tape due to constant ankle-injuries (and playing DB when Burrow is your QB), this would be a no-brainer pick. Even more so now after the failed signing of Eli Apple, the Raiders must look for a long-term number one. If second year players (Mullen, Abram, Johnson) can take a step forward, a secondary that was once a weakness can transform the Raiders defense back to their old days.
Jacksonville Jaguars (from Los Angeles) – A.J Epenesa EDGE Iowa 6’5” 275 lbs
After taking Lamb at 9, Jacksonville transitions to addressing a ravaged defense. With Ngakoue on the move, they must dip back into the edge rushing prospects only a year after drafting stud Josh Allen. Epenesa was once thought of as a surefire top 10 pick, but after a rough combine, better athletes will be drafted before him. He wins with his technique and strength. He can anchor against the run and should provide consistent pressure as he did in the Big Ten. His sophomore tape alone should get him drafted in round 1. He will be a perfect complement to Josh Allen and will help transition the Jags defense post-Coughlin.
Philadelphia Eagles – Patrick Queen LB LSU 6’0” 229 lbs
After missing out on the tier one WRs, the Eagles can look to address one of their two most pressing needs; linebacker and safety. Both McKinney and Queen have good value at 21, but I have them taking the LSU product. After trading for Duke Riley and signing Jatavis Brown, Philly’s linebacking corps isn’t as dire as it once was. The addition of Queen will complete a revamped position group. At LSU, Queen excelled in coverage and showed great instinctual awareness. He is the perfect modern day LB and will have a vaunted defensive line to play behind. It wouldn’t shock me if he emerges as one of the best LBs in the NFL early on.
Minnesota Vikings (from Buffalo) – Justin Jefferson WR LSU 6’1” 202 lbs
Once the Vikings parted with Diggs, the WR position immediately became a priority in round one. After Adam Thielen, who struggled to stay healthy in 2019, the Vikings receiving core is barren. An injection of youth and potential is vital at the position. I wouldn’t be shocked if they double dipped at receiver in the first three rounds. The last time Minnesota took a receiver in round one was Laquon Treadwell in 2016, but I anticipate Jefferson will be far better. Jefferson is the consensus #4 receiver in this class and is one of the more polished and NFL-ready players available. He was highly productive in the SEC and checked every athletic box at the combine. He should come in and become Cousins go to option in the slot.
New England Patriots – Yetur Gross-Matos EDGE Penn State 6’5” 266 lbs
The Patriots have several options at 23. After losing Tom Brady, New England will go into the season with Stidham and Hoyer competing at QB. This opens up the possibility of them drafting a QB early, but I think the top four will be gone at this point and without a second round pick the Pats don’t have the flexibility to move up and get one. I think Belichick is looking at the 2021 draft for a new QB and I anticipate them tanking for Trevor Lawrence. I think this year, they’ll address the holes left by departing free agents on defense and grab the long and productive Penn State edge rusher to be molded into a Belichickian defensive chess piece.
New York Giants (from New Orleans) – Kenneth Murray LB Oklahoma (trades New Orleans 2(36), and 2021 2nd)
I think Gettlemen will look to aggressively address real areas of weakness on the Giants roster. They will be all in on Daniel Jones for the upcoming season and will want to make a playoff push. If Murray or Queen are still available at the back end of round one, I can see them moving up to secure one of them. When pairing Murray with new signee Blake Martinez and promising second year LB Ryan Connelly, the Giants turn a weakness into a strength. With heavy investment on their defensive line the past few drafts (and trades), Murray winds up in the perfect situation. He will be given tons of space behind that line which will allow New York to take advantage of his range and coverage ability. It also softens the blow of passing on Isaiah Simmons.
Cleveland Browns (from Minnesota) – Xavier McKinney S Alabama 6’0” 201 lbs (trades Minnesota 2(41), 3(74), 6(188)
McKinney is the only clear-cut round one safety (unless you consider Simmons a S) and several teams have holes in the middle of their secondary. If the Alabama defensive back slides past 21, front offices will try and move up to secure him. At Alabama, he played over 200 snaps at both safety spots as well as slot corner. His versatility in the secondary is one of his most unique traits. He will have the ability to fill the weakest link all across the defensive backfield which is incredibly valuable. For the Browns, they are in desperate need of a free safety as their current penciled in starter is Andrew Sendejo. McKinney will bring his flexibility and pair well with Ward, Williams, and Joseph to create a promising secondary.
Miami Dolphins (from Houston) – Josh Jones OT Houston 6’5” 319 lbs
After trading up to 3, Miami gets lucky as the most pro-ready LT is still on the board all the way down at 26. The Dolphins desperately need to rebuild their offensive line. At the moment only new signee Ereck Flowers and 2019 third rounder Michael Deiter seem to be set in stone. Jones may not be like the athletic freaks that were drafted before him, but he is the best pass protecting LT in this class and given his age should come in and start immediately. He also has the tools to transition to RT (Tua’s blindside) if need be. If McKinney was still available, Miami would have a tougher decision to make, but at 26 the Houston Cougar has great value.
Seattle Seahawks – Cesar Ruiz C/G Michigan 6’3” 307 lbs
Given the scarcity and lack of depth at interior offensive line in this class, I anticipate the top tier getting picked earlier than they should. Ruiz is the top C/G available in this draft and he will provide teams with an immediate starter with long-term flexibility at either guard or center. For Seattle, this pick makes too much sense for an inconsistent offensive line. Ruiz was a model of consistency at Michigan, starting 36 games over 3 years and never having a prolonged period of negative play. After trading Max Unger away a few years ago, John Schneider has yet to find a competent replacement. Ruiz will finally fill that need and move Britt out to guard or right tackle which should improve two positions at the same time.
Baltimore Ravens – Tee Higgins WR Clemson 6’4” 216 lbs
The fifth and arguably last round one caliber receiver still on the board goes to Baltimore. Higgins length and high-point skills will be exactly what Lamar Jackson was missing when he struggled throwing the ball last year. At Clemson, Higgins scored 25 touchdowns in his last two years. He will be the perfect safety blanket and red zone target (that isn’t Mark Andrews) for Jackson. His ability to box out and high point the ball will make life difficult for any defensive back in the league. By pairing Higgins with 2019 first rounder Hollywood Brown, the Ravens have two vastly different outlets to attack defenses through the air.
Tennessee Titans – Trevon Diggs CB Alabama 6’1” 205 lbs
Tennessee is another team with very few major holes. Jon Robinson has done a masterful job at filling this roster with proven talent and potential. Their biggest needs lie at RT and CB. With the loss of Logan Ryan, the Titans have only two legit corners on the roster (Jackson/Butler). The value of Diggs will be higher for teams looking for big corners who excel in press coverage. The Alabama CB has the physicality and ball skills to be successful. He may not have elite recovery speed, but it is one of the many reasons he pairs so well with a smaller and faster CB like Adoree Jackson.
Green Bay Packers – Denzel Mims WR Baylor 6’3” 207 lbs
The Baylor product is this year’s biggest pre-draft riser having once being thought of as a late day two or early day three developmental receiver. Mims has now turned into a fringe first round player. He aced the pre-draft process (had a great Senior Bowl week and posted a 4.38 40, 10’11” broad, 6.66 3-cone) while showcasing his impressive length (33⅞" arms, 6’3”). His two main issues to keep an eye on was his simplified and undeveloped route tree at Baylor combined with inconsistent hands this past year. The Packers finally get a reliable number two receiver opposite Davante Adams. Mims will hopefully provide a spark for an underperforming Green Bay passing offense.
Miami Dolphins (from San Francisco) – Grant Delpit S LSU (trades San Francisco 2(39), 4(141), 5(155), and 2021 6th)
This is a big win for Miami as they emerge from the first round having filled their three biggest needs, QB, LT, and FS. At 31, the Niners will be looking to trade down again and teams will be looking for that elusive fifth-year option at the end of the first. I have Miami giving up a few day 3 picks to move up 8 spots and take one of the more divisive prospects in this year’s draft. Delpit was considered top 10 material at the beginning of the college season, but a poor outing has hurt his stock significantly. Tackling issues aside, Delpit possess the range and ball skills to play as the deepest defender as a pro.
Kansas City Chiefs – Jaylon Johnson CB Utah 6’0” 193 lbs
The Utah corner is another prospect with a wide range of opinion. I think he could go top 20 or last to the end of the second round, it will depend on how the league views him. I think his coverage versatility will push him up and he’ll end up in the first round. After Kansas City lost Kendall Fuller in free agency, their need at corner intensified. I think Johnson will be capable of replacing Fuller’s ability to play both in the slot and out wide. A tandem of Ward, Johnson, and Fenton is a solid trio when considering how often they will have to defend the pass with Mahomes at QB. If Thornhill continues to impress, the Chiefs secondary will have a lot of potential.
ROUND 2
Cincinnati Bengals – Isaiah Wilson OT Georgia 6’6” 350 lbs
Detroit Lions (from Indianapolis through Washington) – Ross Blacklock DT TCU 6’3” 290 lbs
Detroit Lions – Julian Okwara EDGE Notre Dame 6’4” 252 lbs
New Orleans Saints (from New York) – A.J Terrell CB Clemson 6’1” 195 lbs
Sean Payton and co. decided to trade down and pick up a valuable 2021 pick that they can use to get a QB if need be. I think LB was a possibility had they stuck at 24, but Terrell is a nice consolation pick. After losing Eli Apple, the Saints are left with question marks behind Marshon Lattimore. Jenkins played fine down the stretch but he’s not a long-term partner for Lattimore. At Clemson, Terrell was the premiere corner and mirrored some of the best receivers in college football. He’s tall, long, and fast and should be able to match up against bigger receivers immediately. He also a great blitzer in the slot. Zach Baun is also a consideration here.
Los Angeles Chargers – Brandon Aiyuk WR Arizona State 6’0” 205 lbs
Carolina Panthers – Marlon Davidson DT Auburn 6’3” 303 lbs
San Francisco 49ers (from Miami) – Michael Pittman Jr. WR USC 6’4” 223 lbs
Houston Texans (from Arizona) – Jeremy Chinn S Southern Illinois 6’3” 221 lbs
Unable to convince Arizona to part with their first-round pick for DeAndre Hopkins, the Texans are left without the opportunity to get a blue-chip prospect. They have to hit on these two second round picks to remain in contention. At 40, they address an area of weakness next to free safety Justin Reid. Chinn is a defensive chess-piece with his world class athleticism and versatility. He can play box safety, nickel, or WLB. At Southern Illinois, he dominated with four interceptions in his final year. With this pick Houston will have the most intriguing safety pairing in the league with Reid and Chinn.
Minnesota Vikings (from Cleveland) – Jeff Gladney CB TCU 5’10” 191 lbs
Jacksonville Jaguars – Noah Igbinoghene CB Auburn 5’10” 198 lbs
Chicago Bears (from Las Vegas) – Austin Jackson OT USC 6’5” 322 lbs
This would be a value pick and a perfect spot to land for Jackson. Currently, the Bears have two veteran tackles in Leno Jr. and Massie. This past year, their play wasn’t too inspiring, and they could be gone by next offseason. Jackson is not pro-ready, but he’s only 20 years old and the potential is there. He could come in and be the sixth offensive linemen or the swing tackle in his rookie year. By year two, you’d expect him to start and by year three he could be one of the best left tackles in the league. Although Chicago has other more pressing needs, I think they’ll stick to their board and draft BPA.
Detroit Lions (from Indianapolis) – Jalen Reagor WR TCU 5’11” 206 lbs
Tampa Bay Buccaneers – D’Andre Swift RB Georgia 5’8” 212 lbs
Denver Broncos – Cameron Dantzler CB Mississippi State 6’2” 188 lbs
Atlanta Falcons – Zach Baun LB Wisconsin 6’2” 238 lbs
New York Jets – Laviska Shenault Jr. WR Colorado 6’1” 227 lbs
Pittsburgh Steelers – Terrell Lewis EDGE Alabama 6’5” 262 lbs
The board falls oddly for Pittsburgh. This is not a team with any gaping holes, but there are a few positions that could use depth. The three key areas of need are iOL, EDGE, and LB. I think they’d consider Lloyd Cushenberry III for the eventual replacement of Pouncey here or maybe someone like Willie Gay Jr. or Troy Dye to be depth behind Bush/Williams. I have them going with Lewis out of Alabama. This is a boom or bust type of pick. I don’t think they sign Bud Dupree to a long-term deal and thus they will be in need of an OLB opposite Watt next year. Lewis has all the physical tools (6’5”, 34” arms) to be dominant, he just needs more consistency.
Chicago Bears – Kyle Dugger S Lenoir-Rhyne 6’1” 217 lbs
Dallas Cowboys – Ashtyn Davis S California 6’1” 202 lbs
Los Angeles Rams – Lloyd Cushenberry III C LSU 6’3” 312 lbs
The Rams have significant holes on the interior of their offensive line. They have yet to adequately replace the losses of Saffold and Sullivan in the long term. Given their investment in Goff, this will be a priority. They make a step in the right direction with the LSU product who can come in and start at C day one and begin to form chemistry between him, Goff, and the rest of the offensive line. The center plays an invaluable position and if the right player is playing the position, the offense as a whole will improve. I think McVay is all in on Goff for the next three years at least and this will be reflected with their picks.
Philadelphia Eagles – K.J Hamler WR Penn State 5’9” 178 lbs
Buffalo Bills – Curtis Weaver EDGE Boise State 6’2” 265 lbs
Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott have done an incredible job of completing a roster with very few significant needs. After the acquisition of Diggs, you could argue the entire starting offense is already in place. With that said, their top pick should be used on defensive side of the ball (preferably EDGE or CB). Hughes and Addison combined for 15 sacks last year but will be 32 and 33 at the start of the season. Buffalo needs to find an understudy for them. Weaver was incredibly productive in college (34 sacks in three years), but lacks elite get off. He may not ever become an elite edge rusher at the next level, but his floor is relatively high given his outstanding production.
Jacksonville Jaguars (from Baltimore through Atlanta through New England) – Antoine Winfield Jr. S Minnesota 5’9” 203 lbs
Detroit Lions (from Miami through New Orleans) – Netane Muti G Fresno State 6’3” 315 lbs
Los Angeles Rams (from Houston)– Willie Gay Jr. LB Mississippi State 6’1” 243 lbs
Minnesota Vikings – Justin Madubuike DT Texas A&M 6’3” 293 lbs
Seattle Seahawks – Ezra Cleveland OT Boise State 6’6” 311 lbs
Baltimore Ravens – Malik Harrison LB Ohio State 6’3” 247 lbs
Tennessee Titans – Jordan Elliott DT Missouri 6’4” 302 lbs
Green Bay Packers – Lucas Niang OT TCU 6’6” 315 lbs
Kansas City Chiefs (from San Francisco) – Clyde Edwards-Helaire RB LSU 5’7” 207 lbs
Seattle Seahawks (from Kansas City) – Jalen Hurts QB Oklahoma 6’1” 222 lbs
ROUND 3
Cincinnati Bengals – Tyler Biadasz C/G Wisconsin 6’4” 314 lbs
Washington Redskins – Ben Bartch OT St. Johns (Minn.) 6’6” 309 lbs
Detroit Lions – Jonathan Taylor RB Wisconsin 5’10” 226 lbs
New York Jets (from New York) – Josh Uche EDGE Michigan 6’1” 245 lbs

2020.04.07 16:45 sunnuvadutch Quarantine 3 round mock with realistic Vike trade options

Quarantine without sports is whack. I made this mock to pass time. I believe that the Vikes would be wise to trade up for WOT/CB (or Simmons if he drops or Brown) The top talent is great in this draft but drops off a lot after CJ Henderson where it becomes very deep. I think the Vikes trading up AND trading down due to how deep the talent is from picks 20-90 would be a best case scenario. Here are all my quarantine thoughts. SKOL
I think NYJ is a potential trade partner due to how how many needs they have. San Fran is a potential trade up parter due to picking 13 and 31 but not until 156 after that. Cleveland might be someone especially if they wanted Anthony Harris still. Jacksonville has a second first rounder at 20, but they may be interested in hoarding some firsts in the mid-late first with their needs. Especially if they look draft DE and move Ngakoue. Lastly I think Tampa if all the top tackles are gone would be a good trade up to grab Lamb/Jeudy/Ruggs.
Trade down candidates (I think we only have this option if Love/Herbert is available) would be: Indy who has not first rounder, and 2 early seconds. Miami, although they have so many firsts and early picks I doubt they pass on their QB. Pittsburgh has no first, could be a potential team to try stockpiling 2021 picks and along with their second.
If we stay put at 22 and 25, I think the best ROI is at defensive end and safety. OT would be a SLIGHT reach given how many other holes we have to fill. I think we need to go BPA at secondary/OL/WDL.
Personally would go AJ Espenesa and Winfield Jr to either replace Harris or to run the “big nickel” package more. AJ Espenesa isn’t the best pass rusher available, but I think he’s really well-rounded and with losing Griffen, I believe our best option will be to increase our blitzing from guys like Barr and Smith. Barr is one of the best blitzing 4-3 LBs but we rarely send him.
What do you all think? Have I gone mad?
Round 1 1. Cincinnati QB: Joe Burrow, LSU 2. Washington DE: Chase Young, OSU 3. LA Chargers f/DET QB: Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama TRADE Receive LAC #6, 71, 112, and 2021 2nd rounder for #3, 166, 182, and 2021 6th rounder. Chargers move in front of Miami to pick up Tua and some later draft picks to add some depth due to the 2021 free agency issues they will have. Detroit is happy to trade down and pick up more assets knowing Okudah or a top OL will be there. 4. NY Giants LB/S: Isaiah Simmons, Clemson 5. Miami QB: Justin Herbert, Oregon 6. DET f/LAC CB: Jeffrey Okudah, OSU 7. Carolina DT: Derrick Brown, Auburn 8. Arizona OT: Jedrick Willis, Alabama 9. Jacksonville DT: Javon Kinlaw, USC 10. Cleveland OT: Andrew Thomas, UGA 11. Minnesota f/NYJ* OT: Tristan Wirfs, Iowa TRADE Receive MIN #25, 58, and 2021 2nd rounder for #11. NYJ need a lot of holes, and while there is talent at positions of need, these positions are all deep and the Jets look to acquire high round draft picks to rebuild the team now that the king of the division is seemingly dead. 12. Las Vegas WR: Jerry Jeudy, Alabama 13. San Francisco f/IND WR: CeeDee Lamb, OU 14. Tampa Bay OT: Mekhi Becton, Louisville 15. Denver WR: Henry Ruggs III 16. Atlanta CB: C.J Henderson, UFA 17. Dallas WR: Denzel Mims, Baylor 18. Miami f/PIT S: Xavier McKinney, Alabama 19. Las Vegas f/CHI CB: Trevon Diggs, Alabama 20. Jacksonville f/LAR CB: Kristian Fulton, LSU 21. Philadelphia WR: Justin Jefferson, LSU 22. Indianapolis f/MIN via BUF* QB: Jordan Love, Utah State TRADE Vikings receiver IND #34 and 2021 second rounder for MIN #22, 201, 205. Colts trade up into the first while adding more overall selections to get QBOTF, while Vikings trade back to recoup some of the picks they traded away earlier for Wirfs. Big run at WR and CB removed many of the players the Vikings were eyeing, and they are hoping the can get a better ROI in the second for some of the same players. 23. New England EDGE: K'Lavon Chaisson, LSU 24. New Orleans LB: Patrick Queen, LSU 25. NY Jets f/MIN* OT: Austin Jackson, USC *Wirfs trade 26. Miami f/HOU RB: D'Andre Swift, UGA 27.
