I coach Little League in the summer. In fact, I'm missing a game today. I will be making pitching changes via text, so don't be surprised if I have to make a virtual visit to the mound. Baseball was my first love and I like it a lot, but I like covering football more than anything. So much stuff to write about. So much strategy. That's my life story in a nutshell.
I think you can chase for some need a little bit. But there are a lot of receivers available and you might not need to chase anybody. Still some decent tight ends on the board, too. There are edge rushers available, but they'll all have flaws at this point.
I don't know the answer to that. I'm not sure it would help him anyway.
I would think that Gutekunst would try to move up. He's got the picks to do it. He can chase a player he really likes in the early part of the round.
One fourth, three fifths, a sixth and three sevenths.
Yes, definitely. Among those are LB Jack Cichy, DB Dane Cruikshank, OG Dejon Allen, C Nico Falah, WR J'Mon Moore, S Trayvon Henderson, WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling; OLB Kendall Donnerson, SE Missouri State
I think he can kick for another five years. He takes care of his body and hasn't lost a lot of distance.
Sure, there's all kinds of guys left who can play a sub role: Okoronkwo, Ejiofor, Leon Jacobs of Wisconsin is someone to keep an eye on.
Unlikely. I think he was talking more about free agency after the draft.
Ian Thomas, the Indiana TE is off the board first in the fourth round.
As they were just saying on TV, these are the guys who are the backbone of your team. You don't win unless these guys become decent pros.
I do. I think it shows interest and shows whether they wanted to know more about the guy. It's not definitive, but it means more the later the rounds.
Yes. He didn't say a ton, but he sure said a lot more than Ted.
