Kiper has us taking Josh Allen at 1 and Barkley at 4

Well, he has the first one right....let's see... Barkley is terrific. Would I rather wait til the second round for a

star rb, or a star cb/fs ? I can figure a draft that has Darnold-Fitz/James nails it. or, Fitz-James Allen.

Who knows. It's going to be crazy.

Darnold is the pick is most of these drafts. Josh Allen is the other qb. One is missing completely.... guess who?

OK....for the 4th pick...the Walter database gives these results for the #4 pick:

Allen....25 votes

Mayfield...19 votes

Fitzpatrick...16 votes

Q. Nelson...15 votes

Chubb...14 votes

Rosen...12 votes

D. James...10 votes

Barkley...8 votes

Darnold...7 votes

McGlinchey...7 votes

A. Key...7 votes

C. Williams...5 votes

T. Adams...4 votes

Rudolph...2 votes

C. Wilkins ...2 votes

Note:  It is clear that these mocks may have paid no attention to which team is picking....for as we know the Browns have #1 and #4....yet a number of these mocks had a QB going at both #1 and #4.

Except that the Walter Football Mock Draft Database has  Rosen as over 7 times more likely to be the #1 pick as Allen...and it has Darnold as being twice as likely to be chosen as Rosen....and 14 times more likely than Allen.

mock away.. but this could change so many things starting about FA time? Did anybody else watch this on the net? May not boost FSU drafted LT Rodrick Johnson confidence either?   https://www.dawgsbynature.com/2018/1/18/16905294/highlights-from-the-greater-cleveland-sports-awards-joe-thomas-talks-about-his-future

If Joe retires, our draft changes dramatically. There are likely two, top ten OTs in this class.

Reading between the lines of that article....Joe is coming back...at least for another year.

I believe that as well... and that he extends a couple more seasons.

But if he doesn't...

I actually agree with both picks.  If you really think about it, Crowell is still averaging 2 - 3 yards per carry.  Imaging if we had Barclay there instead.  Draft Allen, but pick up a vet to start.  Let Allen sit and learn.  Give the ball to Barkley and let him pound it.  We should at least get one decent WR in the 2nd round of this draft.  Pair that with Gordon, Njuko, Devalve and perhaps Pryor (FA).  With all the picks we have, there's no excuse for this team not winning at least 6 games next season.  Mostly because they are rookies.  Like I said before, this team will be ready in 2019 to compete.

Learn what? What they should already know?  I don't want my QB to sit and learn, I want my QB to sit and perfect what he should at least have a basic grasp of.  

Sadly I see posters advocating for QB's that don't fit what I'm saying.

...the thing is, QB's coming out of college are usually not prepared to play NFL football.  YES, I know it's just tackle football...but as far as the QB goes, college is waaaay different then the NFL.  The current way that QB's are used in college does the NFL teams drafting them absolutely NO favors.  I think NFL teams need to PLAN to have their newly drafted QB watch from the sidelines while they learn (in practice & in meeting rooms) the NFL QB position.

...and THAT'S just to play the position.  Many times mechanics need to be tweaked on the rookie QB's.  - Having said that, you cannot make a starting pitcher (Tim Tebow's) into a quick release Dan Marino.

TRUE. The toughest thing to do in all professional sports is play QB on an NFL team, asking a rookie to jump in and start is almost impossible -UNLESS- he is on a well  coached loaded team or is one of those once in a decade or generation franchise guys.

Sitting can be good like Rodgers after Favre to name one. Want to kill a QB, start him on a really bad team! :o

Better yet put him with a coach who yanks him with a lead........................................................................never recover.

"Usually" means that some are prepared.

You don't take a QB #1 overall who needs his mechanics "tweaked".

 

I'm trying to think of an NFL starter whose mechanics were flawed coming out of college. Anyone?
