    Off grounds, down the road and around the corner

    Or maybe keep him until the number one pick is ready and you're sure he's gonna work out

    Why are you being so absolute? We haven't even gotten into the second preseason game and you're already saying it was a bad trade. Ever hear a Terry Bradshaw? Three years into his career he was benched for over half the season. Sometimes players need reasoning before they reach their full potential

    According to one news outlet that predicted us to be in a five way tie at 3 and 13. According to that we could have the worst record in football and still only have the number five pick. That's crazy!

    You make the perfect argument why it's important to draft the best available talent versus team needs. It's doubtful the team get's there overnight

    While I get where you are with those sentiments, I still say it is an over simplification.

    I can foresee (if it hasn’t already happened) feeding a sh-t ton of evaluation data into some ML models and trying to predict draft value and success rates. I’m not sure there is enough volume to really get a good predictive model, but let’s set that aside.

    The problems are the same as the human equations now. Garbage in, garbage out. You would need subjective grading on both the inputs (college) and outcomes (pros). It isn’t strictly a qualitative measurement.

    So, the scouts, their biases, and viewpoints affect the models.

    I don’t think it as simple as baseball where so much is individual effort and you can measure more qualitatively.

    I dunno. I agree we need smart people. But in the football world, I don’t think pure analytics works... which means you can’t just rely on left brains for a GM.

    Now - the Belichick role is different. I really think BB is a left brain. He has so much knowledge and experience, that everything is an If-this then-that.

    Look at how they deal with press vs zone coverage on offense. Press: straight to pick plays. Play off: drive and come back. It’s very predictable. (Side note: I can’t wait to see how Flores deals with it)

    Dude, they know we need to draft someone next year, as high as we possibly can, regardless of what happens with Rosen. He’s not set up to succeed here anyways. These guys are both crash test dummies behind this Oline.

    I hate this narrative, they traded back and traded that later second. They have 2 seconds next year in what could be a very “boom” draft. It was absolutely a good move.

    Commonly known as damage limitation.
