    Looks like we were both wrong...though I was more wrong than you were.


    Now that's more like it...and even that prediction was off by 10. I definitely did not see Lindstrom being taken with the 14TH overall pick.

    And if Bill had just been patient (no surprise that he wasn't), he could've stayed at 56 - and in fact could've made the exact same trade with KC that LA did, and moved down to 61 - and he still would've been able to draft Allen.
    Zach Allen + Chase Winovich = DE issue resolved.

    I think they are sitting good at DE. Would of liked Allen as well, but having Bennett, Winovich and Hightower hybrid seems to be a good trio.

    It’s not like 2020 won’t have more draftable defensive ends.

    The interior DL class isn't as good in 2020, but the EDGE class might be better than 2019.

    Agreed, I think the group we have is very solid for this season.

    More interested to see how the interior works itself out this season. Really liked the Pennel signing and wouldn’t mind taking a cheap flyer on Bailey or Wilkerson to get some fierce competition going.

    Plus Wise (perfect Belichick DE build, including massive arms and hands....think has still untapped potential but needs more snaps and consistent good health) and Simon (hybrid like DH).

    My rule of thumb: always be skeptical about player analysis provided by a guy with a man bun.

    In a lot of ways I remain perplexed why bb passed on allen.

    But clearly bb is altering his drafting strategy again and any old stereotypes of players we think that might appeal to bb have to be revised.

    Probably less to do with Allen and more to do with Bill's obvious crush on SloJuan Willie.
