    Odell Beckham Jr as a Miami Dolphin would be an outstanding pick.

    I don't think he makes it to #19.

    I'm ok with any position at #19, like you say there aren't many positions that couldn't use top level talent added. A true seam-threat TE would help scoring maybe more than any other spot on offense. An elite LB would help the entire defense just as much.
    But the O-line needs attention no later Friday of draft weekend, IMO. They need to get a group of guys that can execute the scheme and there are still at least 2 starters needed.

    I would guess that no matter which of the top 3 tackles we targeted that tackle would be the highest paid, for example had we gone after Monroe we likely would have had to pay at least $8.5 to steal him from the Ravens and if we weren't in the Albert market he obviously goes for less than the $9.2 so if we land Monroe instead at best him and Albert get very similar deals. There is no way Newsome is going to trade for Monroe without some assurances that Monroe would be open to signing a long term deal with them and Newsome's approach with his own free agents seems to be to let other GMs set the market for him, Newsome likely has a high number in mind, in this case it was probably $8-8.5 and its up to other GMs to beat that number to get the player.

    Unfortunately for us thanks to Martin-gate and Irelands ineptness we had no choice but to sign at least one of the top tackles in free agency so at the end of the day we were forced to overpay for whichever tackle Hickey/Philbin felt was the best fit. I agree that Monroe at $7.5 > Albert at $9.2 but I don't think that was really our choice, our choice was probably more like Albert at $9.2 or Monroe at $9.1.

    Amazing, isn't it? Guy puts a ton of effort into it and somebody is so lazy that they can't even bother to respond, they just give a negative review. You may disagree with what he wrote, but still respect the effort he put into it. Anyways, my rating should help negate that

    Completely agree. That OP had to take a hell of along time to put together, and was great. How do you change the stars, never did that before?
