Make him a TE :

Darren Waller - WR - Ravens

Ravens selected Georgia Tech WR Darren Waller with the No. 204 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Waller (6'6/238) made 22 starts in four seasons at Georgia Tech, tallying 51 receptions for 971 yards (19.0 YPR) and nine TDs. A freakish athlete for his size, Waller ran 4.46 in Indianapolis with a 37-inch vertical and 10-foot-5 broad jump. Waller needs a lot of technical work — most Yellow Jackets wideouts do — but he's smart (34 Wonderlic score), flashed dominant high-pointing ability in the ACC and offers starting-caliber upside as a vertical weapon.

Think baalke needs to go back to the drawing board on value. Will end up cutting so many players loose after this one - there's just no room with the influx from last year. At least we can have multiple punter packages now that should really get the offense off the ground. Good to do that and address ss early vs targeting cbs early. Over drafted way too much way too often and stockpiled fodder picks.

Seahawks took a big time project (high ceiling, too) player Obum Gwacham. He's an excellent kid, though. I haven't been able to say that about too many of their players. Hopefully he doesn't fit in with the rest of that disgusting roster :)

Kuhn is one of your favorite players, right Pozz?


Nope, not me. He drives me crazy because Packers fans I know have a weird fascination with him and I think tend to over rate him JUST a tad. You must have me mixed up with somebody else.


It was a joke ;)

Packers have a fascination with R-named players this year I guess.

1. Damarious Randall
2. Quinten Rollins
4. Jake Ryan
6. Aaron Ripkowski
6. Christian Ringo

Ty Montgomery and Brett Hundley are the only two players they've taken whose last name doesn't start with "R."

I know. Weird observation.

The Packers are probably hoping that Kennard Backman will be the player that D.J. Williams (personal favorite) was supposed to be for them. There's some similarities there.

Seahawks go with Kristjan Sokoli. He was born in Albania and then moved here when he was in grade school. He played NT for them at 299 lbs and is a heck of an athlete for a big ugly but it hasn't translated yet into big results. He could be kicked to DE on run downs if need be IMO.

Steelers and Ravens - the usual suspects - have done well in this draft. The Jets have done really well too. The Browns I thought had a good first half of the draft. Bears had some nice picks as well.

In our division I like what the Cardinals did. D.J. Humphries was my #1 ranked OT and thought he was a steal where they got him, and then following it up with Markus Golden and David Johnson. Great first three picks for them IMO.

Rams took OG Cody Wichmann from Fresno State. Another power player for that line. Sheesh! Got a lot of publicity and notice from his coaches for having a good game against Leonard Williams.

Lol. Meant to write "should..." Using my cell phone. Autocorrect feature with this phone is a pain in the a$$.

DT Christian Covington from Rice to the Texans. Had a dislocated kneecap this year. Apparently he got the clearance he needed. That scared off some teams supposedly.

Rakeem Nunez-Roches to the Chiefs. They were linked to him by a lot of people I saw. He was born in Belize, came to the U.S., had a tough upbringing, and then took off in school. If his knee holds out he could do some nice things. Has the potential to be a locker room leader at some point. Everybody loves the guy as a person.

Apparently they are shifting him to the offensive line. Interesting.

Jags took WR Neal Sterling from Monmouth. All 6'3 and 240 of him! Shrine Game kid. Lot of talk about him whether to let him continue to bulk up and put him at TE or ask him to drop a little and put him at receiver. That'll be interesting.

Why bother waiting? We know exactly what Baalke's gonna do.

Until he's gone, I can never again be excited for the draft.
