Excellent Draft Wrap Up on TCF

Unread postby peeker643 » Tue May 03, 2011 10:27 pm

Lot of time and effort into this Feeling a Draft series, especially with the draft finale piece here: http://bit.ly/iVO0Xj

Excellent work Jason.

Loved the recap as well as the organizational philosophy section, the 'draft currency' road they're on and also the UDFA targets.

It's all good.

Looking forward to more once this lockout ends.

Well done man. Enjoyed the entire Series.

Any chance Buster Skrine could be converted to a WR?

Honestly we all try and envision these speed guys with the ball in their hands but usually if a guy can do big things with the ball in his hands they would have put the ball in his hands in college.

He was not even a punt returner which tells me he has ball handling issues. Someone is with his speed should have been handling all of the return duties at a school like Chattanooga. He only has 1 career TD and none in 40 returns last year. He is has defensive player ball skills

SD:

Best recap of the draft I've read anywhere especially pertaining to the Browns,

I could follow their thinking and now the picks make sense and why they made them .

They still might miss , butt it wasn't throwing darts on a board , they were netting immediate starters and future grist for the mill.

The TE with that WR background is a bigger conversion of Ozzie , lets hope this deal turns out half as well as that result.

Luv that two way FB RB , and I think you nailed his value for depth if nothing else.

Man the heart it takes to do that is off the charts .

Would definitely like to add Devlin and Herzlich minimum as udfa's

Jason,

Each installment of your series quickly became a must-read. Great Job.

I especially liked how you dug down into talent below the first two rounds and broke it down in a way that was very helpful in understanding how these players would fit in on the Browns.

Agreed on all of the posts above....tremendous job Jason.

One quick question....any chance of something similar for the NBA draft? Or are you an NFL Draft only expert?

Might be the weakest draft in NBA history, but I figured I'd go ahead and ask anyway. Thanks again for all the work you put into the "Feeling the Draft" series.

Glad people enjoyed the work...I agree 100% about the ceiling of the TE.
