The New Race for the #4 Pick Thread...

Unread postby pup » Thu Dec 08, 2011 2:13 pm

Colts 0-12 - Luck
Rams 2-10 - have Bradford
Vikings 2-10 - have Ponder
Jags 3-9 - play tonight, have Gabbert

At 4-8: Browns, Dolphins, Eagles, Redskins, Panthers, Buccaneers, Chargers (4-7, play tonight).

All likely to win another game IMO. Our only chance of screwing up our shot at whatever QB we want is in Arizona.

We lose out, we get #4 or #5 overall, and get our QB. And losing out is probably our only hope of Walrus cutting bait on his boy Shurmur.

Is RG3 guaranteed to at least make things interesting ala Cam in Carolina?

I don't even care if we post a winning record next season as long as the games are at least fun to watch. That's all I ask.

1) I've been a McCoy advocate since he was drafted, but realistically he hasn't proven anything--yet.

2) The Browns are much more desperate at other positions (we all know what they are) to worry about drafting a QB.

3) But it WOULD be interesting to see a 2012 training-camp battle between Colt and RG3, since either one probably would make a very, very good back-up or starter-in-training.

4) Can't have too many good QBs on the roster, and open competition is never bad (unless you end up flipping a coin to determine the winner).

5) Conclusion: if RG3 is available, grab him!

I've said it before and I'll say it again until I expire...

QB is by far the most important position in today's NFL. Therefore, if you don't have a guy that is or has a good chance of becoming AT LEAST a really good QB, that is your biggest need.

The idea of yet another year of trying to get by with McCoy/Quinn/Couch/Holcomb/Dilfer/Garcia/Frye is excrutiating (I put DA in a whole other class of suck).
It's only progress if you eventually get somewhere.

There's a plethora of needs.

1. QB
2. RT, RG, OLB, WR, RB, CB, S, RDE

At least half of those will have to be dealt with in FA... that is, if they're gonna actually TRY to be good in 2012.

I've been waiting since Ryan Tucker retired for them to take care of that side of the line.

For the love of god, draft someone or get a fa. I hate watching our QB's get killed.

Gross. Another top 5 CB would be vomit-inducing.

Need to find a way to get a QB with a real arm, WR with legit speed, and play-making LB early.

SD:

There are some natural pros for Barkley , he has more game experience in a pro set for one .

However in a world if you believe LUCk Barkley and RG3 are the top prospects out there .

Luck has a super package bringing both physicality and the mental smarts of a coach to a position , where he could be a fixture for a decade at 6' 4" he's no Cam Newton or Tebow , but he can run dissect defenses make the right read and throw and sac up under pressure , propelling a team of lesser men around him into places they'd never make without him.

Barkley has had it made all his life , but he's also played QB all his life , he has a quick release and goes quickly thru his progressions but has the weakest arm of the three and is the least athletic .

RG3 graduated both high school and College early , so he's as cerebral as Bernie , but possesses a far better arm and sprinters speed as a World class 4oo meter hurdle competitor.

He'd enter the roster as one of the fastest players in the NFL with a quicker release than Dan Marino and the best arm in this entire QB class with a phenomenal completion rate that hovers at 73 %, he's been exposed to pro coaching with June Jones on the roster and he's earned his degree while being younger than Luck or Barkley.

He single handily destroyed Texas the top rated defense in the big 12 , simply shredded them like toilet paper in what was supposed to be his toughest test.

If Not for Luck he'd be the number one QB pick in the draft , wouldn't throw Barkley outta bed unless it was for LUCK or RG3 .

Yep , but hopefully he won't get as much practice as Colt throwing to the wrong jerseys,
when the ball has to go beyond ten yards.

So... you're saying we should draft a RT that can also play QB when Colt's not getting it done?

I know what point you're trying to make, but last time I checked QB was still the most important position on the team.

SD:

I'm a moron , because I want to draft a QB who can't play CB and right tackle , but throws TD's to Colts interceptions especially when in the Redzone .

Well alrighty then .

Not all of us can be as smart as geniuses like yourself ,

just one thing though , I wasn't tlking about Luck , we have no shot at drafting him .

so should I see if Flynn who has years of experience in the WCO and plays behind the best QB in football is ok with you , or should we nix him because he's never picked off a pass playing CB or blocked a DE when he was in his role as RT .

Help me out here genius ....

Lots of cap space next year, and a lot of nice WR's becoming available. Even if you get a middle of the road veteran type, and you pair him with Little/Mass/Norwood, I have to believe a good QB gets them the ball and a not-shitty coach calls plays that don't have half the defense waiting at the LOS.

We have neither, so....Feh.

I'm not going to cry is RG# gets drafted

I'm also not going to cry like a whiney little bitch as per SD if McCoy is the QB next yr cuz I am actually aware of the top to bottom suck that is the Cleveland Browns

I will say as per my above post that the likelyhood of 3 defensive picks with our 1st 3 is a distinct possibility and peeps should open themselves to that option regardless of what 'they' WANT

...and that won't piss me off either

This team isn't going anywhere for at least 3-4 more yrs and if when there is another coaching change it will be another 3-4 yrs

By the time its competitive on both sides of the ball McCoy will be dead anyways soooooo, whats the beef

I will be pissed if RG3 is there and they pass on him, but I agree it's not like a bad QB is all that ails them.

If Colt can manage a win along the way and they slot themselves out of RG3 territory, then I won't cry about BPA.

I also recognize that there is a high possibility that they are in place to take RG3 and don't, and although I will feel it's a mistake, I will be able to accept it with a minimum of whining. I will also settle in for yet another year of super-fun QB debate and another year of suck.

If RG3 is there and they pass I'll be 3 Mile Island meets Chernobyl. Global warming polar ice cap melty. Passing on Barkley or any of the others won't bother me at all. But I think the kid from Baylor is special enough to take the chance.

I'll fucking move back to Ohio just to light Berea on fire myself if they pass on him.

Everything Audie says is dead on, three picks could easily make the defense real, but special and QB is not something you look beyond in this NFL.

It's all coming down to that game in Arizona next week vs the Cardinals.

If they lose it, they'll be in great position to get the non-Luck QB of their choice. If they win that game, they're likely to fall behind at least 1 or 2 teams expected to take QB.

Blaine Gabbert is terrible. The Jaguars just got a new owner; I wouldn't put it past them to draft RG3; he's that good.


That being said, if he's there, I'd take him in a heartbeat. Even if the Jags threaten to take him and we have to trade up 1 pick to get him, I'd do it for anything other than our other 1st rounder this year.

SD:

We're safe from them taking a QB , butt susceptible to them via trade from Washington , who may have difficulty pulling off a swap with the two NFC teams ahead of the Jagoffs.

Thats who we should target as an AFC team.

J-Ville has Tenny and Indy these next two weeks. They can win one or both of those games. Rams have Steelers and San Fran, so probably finish at 2-14. Minny has Washington and the Bears, two teams who have been up and down this year. It is not inconceivable for us to move up to #3 overall, I think #4 for sure with J-Ville winning at least one of their final two.

Would they "win" a tie breaker with the Vikes?

Even if they did we *might* be better served by Washington beating Minny, because that might put Washington out of what would be palatable for them to trade up...

Is there a chance that our SOS from playing Balt and Pitt these last 2 weeks will move us behind TB if they lose out?

I think the safest bet is for TB to beat Atlanta in the last week. Atlanta will surely be resting their starters for the playoff run, right? That will have the added benefit of jumping Atlanta's pick up a few spots for us too.

Current SOS (with Steelers win tonight which is worse for Browns) Vikes opponets are .567 and Browns are .5268.

So yes, we should win that tiebreaker.

That wouldn't drop ATL because they will be slotted based on playoff elimination.

You guys need to get RG out of your system....you just know its not gonna happen...you/we want him too badly to be that lucky and I've been tryin' my best to get ya's to think in a different direction

Oh yeah. Well, 4 teams are eliminated in the first round. How are they ranked? Has to be record, right?

Draft order is determine per below

Rules for determining draft orderThe selection order is based on each team's win-loss record in the previous season and whether the team reached the playoffs. Teams that did not reach the playoffs the previous season are ranked in reverse order of their records (so the team with the fewest wins is awarded the first selection). Ties between teams with identical records are determined by the following tiebreakers (in order)

1.Strength of schedule, which is the combined win-loss record for all 16 of the team's opponents in the previous season (ties count as a half win and half loss). The team with the lower strength of schedule (i.e. their opponents compiled fewer wins) is granted the earlier pick in round one.
2.Division tiebreakers (if the teams are in the same division).
3.Conference tiebreakers (if the teams are in the same conference).
4.Coin flip(s), which occur(s) at the pre-draft NFL Combine.
Teams that reached the playoffs the previous season are then slotted in the order in which they were eliminated as indicated in the table below. Within each tier, the slotting is determined as above (i.e. worst record picks first and the same tiebreakers apply).

Draft picks
Non-playoff teams 1–20
Eliminated in Wild Card round 21–24
Eliminated in Divisional round 25–28
Eliminated in Conference Championships 29–30
Super Bowl losing team 31
Super Bowl champion 32

If Indy gets the #1 overall I accept the fact they take Luck, but if somehow St. Louis can land the #1 pick I would imagine they would be willing to listen to offers... A few weeks ago Peter King was asked how many rd1 picks would it take to pull off a trade for #1 over all, his answer was 3. If that's the case we got to be one of the more attractive trade partners.

E0, if someone with a top 15 pick wants barkley and we dont, I dont know how you could turn down a bunch more picks, there really isn't anyone that scream you can't pass on this guy besides Luck and RG3 IMO.....Heckert's done a good job with out 1sts and 2nds I'd like for him to have as many as possible on a team this devoid of talent.

You Have To Take An Elite Top Of The Draft Playmake No Matter What.

Period.

Even if it's Richardson.

You cannot trade down a third year in a row.

Unless its the QB we want, I'm all about maximizing the # of 1st and 2nd round picks over time, particularly now that it would APPEAR* that we have our first competant GM. At least from a draft evaluation standpoint.

No, no, no.

The second biggest hole on this team is impact players, right behind QB. They have non. You cannot keep backing up and adding middle round talent 3 out of every 4 years, this year, with an extra first is the year you finally fucking stick in the top ten and get someone who can make something happen on the damn field.

Our best two players were both picked in the top ten for a reason. Time to add another one of "those guys."

Either way as long as its a hit, I dont care if its at #30, #1, or #4....Dez bryant was a late pick and Floyd looks to be in that spot for our 2nd first rounder...whatever.

This Draft is different for my than in years past because I dont really really want any one player, save for Luck or RG3 and I dont htink they will be there. There are a lot of players I would like to have.
