    I agree. QB, WR, TE should be the main focus again. DT, LB and S as well but I deem the first 3 as more important.

    If I had more time to devote to this hobby on the weekends, this looks very tempting. I could submit threads like this as part of my resume, I suppose, but I don't really have enough football knowledge or experience. What a cool opportunity, though!

    Numbers that matter vs numbers that don't; here's a measurement that simply isn't important.

    Having a larger hand size at the QB position may or may not help prevent fumbling, but it sure doesn't hurt.

    We always lament that our linebackers are vulnerable against the pass, but the fact of the matter is that it's always a mismatch to throw at a linebacker. Keep that in mind as we prep for the daft in 2020. Even the best coverage 'backer in the world is generally inferior to a defensive back.

    Also, how in the world does Leonard get so many accolades? He had some nice stats, but he gave up the most yards of any of these players. Overrated. Will fall back to earth.

    Yeah, I was a little surprised when Leonard was picked by the Clots early in the 2nd round; I had him pegged as more of an early/mid-3rd guy.

    Also of note is Zach Brown's relatively good rating compared to most of the others. Bill could've signed him here for cheap a couple of times, but now I'm in a better place regarding our own LBs. Who knows, maybe Jaime Collins has learned to defend the Wheel route better during his absence? I also am not giving up yet on Christian Sam, and coverage is supposedly one of Terez Hall's better qualities.

    This doesn't take into account play action passes, but it's interesting nonetheless. I know it's not quite on the topic of draft review and a look forward to the 2019 draft, but this thread is turning into my own little space, so there you have it.

    I usually prefer my QB to play under center except in obvious passing situations, or if the protection isn't doing its job well enough. The play-action possibilities, especially in a Tom Brady offense, are endless.
