    2020 NFL Draft Profiles - RB Cam Akers

    Agree with a lot of what you said. I think most people assume Love's supporting cast is the primary (only?) reason he had high INT totals last season. He made a lot of bad decisions (ones I think I spotlighted in the examples I provided in the profile), and he certainly didn't look athletic enough to me to suggest he can go to an RPO-heavy offense and smooth out some of the early rough spots. I haven't evaluated Hurts yet, but I get the feeling I"m going to like him more than I did Love.

    I was talking about Love not seeing the LB ...

    The comp was actually a favorable one IMO. Winston has obvious upside, as you suggest, and I think Love could eventually become a better version of Jameis if ever learns to stop trusting his arm so much. I just can't get over how many times he threw it right at a linebacker in zone coverage. Some of those were nice plays by the LB, but you've got to be able to see the one guy with the best chance to make a play on the ball.

    I've heard/seen it said a few times, either by folks on Sirius XM or in print. I don't remember exactly who or when I heard it and didn't take much note of it because I hadn't broke him down yet. I read something a day or so ago about a scout saying Tua is a "left-handed Mahomes" as well. He's not.

    I get the question was rhetorical, but I'd also add that Winston was the No. 1 overall pick in his draft (2015) and Brissett was a third-rounder in his year (2016). Either way, I saw very little evidence he is the poor man's Patrick Mahomes that I've heard floated around in the last month or so.

    2019 rookies

    Awww ... always nice to someone reference your work. Of course, you didn't say you loved my rookie ranks, but I'm going to assume you did.

    I think they would be better off with Fromm or maybe Eason. I haven't evaluated either one fully yet, but I like what I saw from Fromm during my analysis of D'Andre Swift.

    I refuse to call it “The Ship”.

    Definitely on board with this. I can't stand the "ship" or the "chip." Maybe it's the writer in me, but people need to stop trying so hard to be cool and just say what they mean from time to time.

    Questions? I have right answers (hopefully)

    My apologies. I've been away most of the day. Don't think it matters now, but I would have gone with AD, Perriman and Miller.

    I see you and I share the same injury luck. I like the way you're thinking. I think I'd roll with Chark and take my chances with him holding up.

    If memory serves, we can basically trace Waller's "demise" to when Hunter Renfrow plays. He should be back this week, but Gerald Everett should be too. Plus, I'm not stoked about TEs going up against the Niners. I'd go with Waller.

    Think I'd sit Brown of that bunch. Henry over Higbee for me.

    Gotta go with the any TE vs. Arizona approach (Hollister). If I was to replace Adams, Edelman or Robinson, it might be Edelman - not sure how healthy he is. I would start Boyd over him if you choose to go with one of the other options.

    Lockett, Hill and Perriman Pittsburgh

    Ugh. Ward's seen nine targets in each of the last two games (and I personally think he should have been an option a while ago). Watson has the better matchup, but there are still too many options in Tampa to feel good about him going 5-60-1.
