    Probably just worn down after the long night in the booth yesterday because of the rain delay.

    They also said that Petry would be joining Dan for the upcoming road trip to KC & Mpls, so that's something for the folks wanting more peaches in their diet.

    Announced after the game that Petry would join him on the road for the rest of the season. Hope Jim is ok. I was at the game for pink out the park night. My wife has stage 1 breast cancer, and just had surgery for it. She'll have chemo and then radiation, we are expecting a full recovery.

    That’s because anyone can draft the consensus 1/1, but it takes actual front office talent to down-draft, identify good internationals to sign, and trade for the bottom of the system effectively.

    It takes money. Everybody knows the talent.

  3. I went back to the roster, and the Lions have some depth at WR, although not ideal.

    Tyrell Williams

    Breshaud Perriman

    Damion Ratley

    Kalif Raymond

    Amon Ra St.Brown

    Geronimo Allison

    Victor Bolden

    Not really much of a pass rusher, more of a pocket collapser. I don't know if Snacks is a valid comparison as Levi (not even trying to spell the last name haha) is more athletic but he seems to serve a similar purpose.

    Levi is a three tech with a great first step. Probably will end up playing passing downs.

    • Falcons selected University of Washington DT Levi Onwuzurike with the No. 41 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

      Onwuzurike (6'2/293) initially blossomed in 2018, registering 26 pressures and 19 stops in 391 snaps as a part-timer. He was promptly given the nod as a starter the following year, racking up 31 pressures and 29 stops in 504 snaps but admittedly lacked effectiveness on a weekly basis. Still, Onwuzurike shows rare acceleration off the line for a player of his size and can control blocks even as a nose tackle. With a nice array of pass-rushing tools and brute strength (29 bench reps), he has all the physical traits necessary to be an impact 3-tech at the NFL level.

    Good player.  Not flashy, but he's a Snacks Harrison-type player. 

    No he's not! Snacks is a monster nose tackle. Levi runs a 4.88.  More of a pass rusher, with a big first step.

    moore seems a little small and slight, but it may be that all the good receivers are smaller because of the college game.  same with the corners.

    paulson adelbo maybe.

    The best receivers in this draft are mostly smaller. Moore is versatile, I don't think he makes it to the Lions pick.

    Who is everyone's top choice/s for rounds 2&3 tonight?

    My top choices in the 2nd round is the LB/S hybrid JOK. For our 2 3rd round picks I would to get a WR like Dyami Brown, Josh Palmer, Jaelon Dardon and a Safety like Jamar Johnson from Indiana.

    Elijah Moore, Trevon Moehrig, and Nick Bolton in the 2nd. There are some corners (Tyson Campbell, Asante Samuel, and Kelvin Joseph) I like for the 3rd. And of course, S Jevon Holland.

    There are quite a few LT's that started a year on the right side first.

    How much did Sewell play in 2020?

    Oh... he opted out. It's been awhile.

    Probably a really good candidate to play the right side for a year before swapping with Glasgow.

    Glasnow is with Denver.

    I'm not going to disagree before the colon, but you don't take your franchise linemen and try to turn him into something he isn't. Sewell can anchor the left side of that line for years and years to come if we are fortunate enough to have him drop. Decker is good, and he earned the check he's getting, but he's not good enough to make me listen to demands about what side of the line he owns.

    The smartest guys in the room tried doing this with Ragnow, putting him at guard in 18 (with Graham friggin Glasgow - a GUARD by trade - at center) after he was an all-world center at Arkansas. He was meh as a guard and then when they finally switched him over to his comfort zone, he became Pro Bowl good. 

    Glasnow was a center at Michigan.

    If Sewell is gone and there are no ideal trade back options I wouldn't be upset if they settled for Slater for essentially the same reasons I want Sewell.  

    Slater has short arms, he'll probably shift to guard.

    He'll be David Carr if no time in Cincinnati doesn't improve that OL. What good are weapons if you are running for your life, have no time in the pocket to let a play develop, and become predictable because you have no running game. The Bengals would be smart to take Sewell or trade back a few spots and still take one of who is available between Sewell/Slater. When you have a franchise asset like Burrow, especially after he just went down with an ACL injury, protecting him is your #1 job. The Bengals passing on Sewell is only to our benefit though if Sewell is high on Brad Holmes draft board.

    I think that Sewell's going to fall in this draft. I think he might fall out of the top 10. Too many QB's.

    Lot of talk on Twitter that the Bengals are leaning heavily towards Ja'Marr Chase at 5, citing the LSU connection between Burrows and Chase and the Riley Reiff signing of the Bengals.

    Looking more and more likely one of Pitts or Sewell would be there at #7, which would be an ideal scenario.

    Pitts is going to Atlanta at 4.

  13. Was watching a PFF pod the other day, 2-1 drafts, when Mike Renner discussed positional war for football players. QB has 4X the positional value as the next most important positions.
