The 2020 Draft thread.

Recommended Posts

From what I'm reading most teams are doing quite well, with the Packers being a notable exception.

Bills have gone DE / RB / WR so far, definitely needed more youth at DE and RB means that trading for Fournette is out the picture hopefully. Anything on day 3 is really a lottery ticket, I'd quite like a punter with one of the late picks, Bojorquez isn't very good. Probably OL and CB to be taken as well.

In exchange for a 5th Round this year and a 3rd next year. A position the 49ers needed filled so happy enough with that.

Especially with Staley retiring :(

Shame to see him go but the Niners have something like 3 or 4 RBs that could start for them.

Gutted about Staley, an absolute 49ers legend.

As far as RBS go, the big unknown is still Jerrick McKinnon and if he is ever going to be fit.960x0.jpg

Gone for a QB3 and a kicker in rounds 5 and 6, still 2 picks to make.

49ers trade Goodwin to the Eagles and the 210th pick for the Eagles 190th.

Pats new kicker Rohrwasser has a tattoo of the symbol for far right wing militia group the Three Percenters. Now claiming he thought it was just a symbol of military support. :lol:

Have to say, I feel like the Cardinals have drafted really really well.

 

8 Isaiah Simmons LB/S

72 Josh Jones OT

114 Leki Fotu DT

131 Rashard Lawrence DT

202 Evan Weaver LB

222 Eno Benjamin RB

 

Simmons a value pick at 8, which is quite something, a future starting tackle, beef up the front 7, and a bargain RB in the 7th. Great job.

Looks a good draft, although questions about Cephus.

No doubt Swift and Okudah should step in immediately

Would have liked to have seen 9ers get in a CB but other than that reasonably pleased with players selected given limited number of picks.

That's the surprising thing from this draft from a Niners PoV. They needed help in the secondary and to not make a single pick there seems odd. Mind you, that secondary got them to the SB so maybe it's not that bad but this season will be tougher what with playing all the 1st placed teams across divisions.

The Patriots draft is a real headscratcher. I can't think of any team that now has a weaker talent group on offense, especially in skill positions.

They must be confident in what they've got.  At running back, they spent a first round pick on Sony Michel, who has shown that he's capable and they've also got the likes of Burkhead and Bolden behind him to mix it up.  Wide receiver, they have the first rounder from last year N'Keal Harry who was injured last season, Mohammad Sani and Edelman.  I honestly don't know anything about their tight ends at all so can't say how they will be.

Their secondary is absolutely rock solid but they have lost their leader in sacks from last season (to my team, no doubt he'll immediately return to being pish). 

I'm kind of curious to see what they do with quarterback, it seems like they'll go into the season with Jarret Stidham as their starter, which seems crazy but maybe they will prove that the scheme matter more than the players.  If I had to put a bet on it though, I'd back the Bills for the division, epeically now they've picked up Diggs.

The pats will be fine, Bill will find a way to win... might not be legal but he’ll find a way

Nat Coombs pod with a good point - Since Rodgers was selected in the 5th (?) round by GB, 41 QBs have been selected in the first round, 40 were the starter within two seasons. This surely puts Rodgers on the clock...?
