So does @JoeyFlex5 !
He'll come around though
this prediction was a days off
I’ll come around if he goddamn plays well. Or if wink schemes like a dream with him and makes him like ZDS on mega roids, which I think is the best case scenario for him, because he is not gonna be a regular edge rusher and be productive in the nfl, he’s gonna need to be dialed up
I had zero doubt in my mind we would draft Ferguson, I actually had a slight worry we would want him with our first. After we didn’t do that, I really thought we were gonna trade up for him. I thought it was obvious that we coveted him something serious
Yep, DeCosta said hat much in a post draft conf. If we had a 2nd round pick, he'd have took him there.
I mean...........I was HOPING to not use the /s
And look how fucking stupid because nobody else thought he was a 2nd round talent smh
@JoeyFlex5's brain right after the Ravens pick:
Yep, all the other teams will again realise how stupid they were
Decosta delivered on the most important thing
Apparently we looked at trading up to go get Cody ford in the 2nd but the price was too dear
Yeah. I'm a little put off by the argument that says,' Well, who would have gotten...it's only the sixth round..." If we are sitting with three sixth round picks and you want Galliard, for example, he was there for the taking with only a slight move.
If Boykin is a stud then it clearly works but if he's a special teams guy only and can't get involved in the passing game as a rookie, I really question why you wouldn't sit and hope for to him to fall to you. Butler was on the board along with Boykin and Ridley.
It's clear they really wanted him or they specifically targeted his type of receiver so I'll be glad to say I was wrong when it works.
it may also have been a case of not needing 10 picks this year and the ravens realising they could package those picks into a move for a player they really liked - they evidently werent as into gaillard as we were else they would have taken him earlier - 8 draft picks is still a fairly large haul
I'm just throwing Galliard out as example of an available guy. It's true they might not have wanted him.
I think the truth is the Ravens didn't really see enough talent to go and draft a ton of dudes so they went and got someone they really wanted and avoided taking a chance on missing out on the guy for a couple 6th round picks. I think that's ultimately what it boils down to being the deciding factor. I loved Gaillard and would've loved him here, but the team didn't like him enough to get him and I'm OK with that. I think we went into this with a plan and executed our plan and that was it. It would've been great to get another OL, maybe make a move up from our 4th rounders but I think we were happy with how the draft went that we were complacent with our moves.
A+ draft grade from me
@SepticeyePoe get this shit up
