WFT Draft Special: Let’s Draft all LBs or OLs

WFT draft special.
If  readers follow my blog then you know I write a lot about keeping the roster basically together…’ we are family.’

Furthermore I do not watch college football—only a handful of games a year—so I don’t have a great read on the draft.

I have inoticed by watching the draft the past few seasons that at the end of the draft there are still quite a few prospects available…so teams that are on the ball can actually score major successes with UDFAs as WFT seems to do well after last year’s draft.
So I actually don’t have many views on this year‘s draft because I just don’t watch much college personnel. I really liked Travis Etienne from Clemson in the 2019 Championship game. I would pick him.
In addition in general I feel that coaching is much more important than players and all of this player analysis, PFf and players strengthens and weaknesses and overrated for winning in today’s game.
I am just as happy and have as strong as a belief that WFT can win with any of the four quarterbacks on our roster today. Look Doug Williams a game before giving the NFL the greatest quarter ever in Super Bowl XXII went something like 9 for 27 (off the top of my head) and looked terrible..that game was infamously remembered as Jimmy-the-Greek’s last for his racist pre game remarks. Way to go, Doug! To be a pro means to be prepared every day at any moment…just looked back at my writings last season on Wally Pipp!

That being said I feel our roster is incredibly incredibly good and youthful at just about every position and poised for a very long postseason run. Talk of a realistic Lombardi is not out question for the first time I think with a Snyder owned team even if Fitzpatrick turns out to be a dud. Defensive line, wide receiver, running back, secondary-/all look very good…the glaring holes appears to be with our linebackers and with our second TE.
Wow,  with yet our draft and UDFAs, WFTs has a shot to make a considerable leap to an elite franchise.
But getting good is ok, we want great and hopefully we continue to play like we did the 2nd half of the season when WFT went 5-2.  Hopefully, we will be as good as that stretch of football.
This upcoming season more so than most in recent seasons come down to coaching and the gm office and somehow, Snyder.
If they strike out this season, par for the course with Snyder’s owned WFT.

But on paper a leap is realistic especially given a superb off season as of this day in March. I stress: MARCH.

Because from RGIII knees to Gus Frereotte’s neck, WFT fans always see whatever expectations at any point ultimately squashed since 1992. That’s a long time for disappointments.

So, for this year’s upcoming draft, I would look for improving our weakest units and possibly turning our biggest weakness into our greatest strength.  I identified our greatest needs as : ol (the hogs) and lb.

Maybe we could be dominating the whole decade at offensive line or linebacker.

So, let’s pick an unit and make all our picks at this group. OLs or LBs would be my choice.  With a few UDFA RBs and TEs, maybe WFT will not be playing par for the course come next February!

    Been doing that very thing on my mock drafts this weekend.
    Looks like a LT 1, TE 2, RB 3 and we can live with the offense
    Meanwhile on defense we replaced Ron Darby, Fabian Moreau, and Kevin Pierre-Louis with upgrades.
    Ryan Anderson needs replacing, and Ryan Kerrigan is still pending.
    That’s a good sign for us even if not for him.
    FS’s 1 and 2, CB 4, OLB 2, ILB 2, DE 4, DT 5.
    This might end up being a defensive draft not an offensive one as RR has originally stated.
    019 Trevon Moehrig FS 1
    051 Liam Eichenberg LT 1
    074 Cameron McGrone ILB 2
    082 Brevin Jordan TE 2
    124 Tony Fields OLB 3
    163 Khalil Herbert RB 3
    244 Christian Uphoff FS 2
    246 Bryan Mills CB 4
    UDFA
    Calvin Ashley OT/OG 5 ps
    Tedarrell Slaton DT 5 ps
    Jalen Virgil WR 6 ps

    OT Jaylon Moore Western Michigan*
    OT/OG Calvin Johnson Florida A&M

    Three FA’s for the offensive line and one for the RB room freeing the draft for a WR 2, and TE 2.
    My pick for LT is FA Alejandro Villenueva.
    IOL 4, and LS not clear just yet.

    Nah, I disagree… I’m done basically with free agency besides re-signing Kerrigan. Maybe sign KJ Wright or a veteran linebacker otherwise…
    My We are family mantra has me thinking our roster set with players who have been with team.Cornelius Lucas while I do not understand pff scores and I think his was low? Please check. He only gave up 1 sack and 2 penalties…young hungry backups…left tackle we are set hopefully for a long time.
    I hope we draft 3-4 linebackers, best players at position…and look to bring in UDFAs at any and all positions best available especially if under 4.4 40 yard combines…No our roster is set and even though always a win now guy I know that the extra cap money gets used quickly so I keep the reserves and start praying, that our recent history does not repeat itself. 5-2 last 7, 8-1-1 against Las Vegas point spread last 10 games. No repeat playoff poearances since Snyder actually 1992. No 12 win season since 1992. Last playoff win? Gibbs Ii? What does Dan do to our town? Never improvement with Snyder. No leaps! So don’t buy the snake oil until we see a leap. Heck we could have Jesus Christ on the roster…history under Snyder says, “we will miss playoffs!”
