The bye week is thankfully at a sensible time during the season. I hate the Week 4 byes we also used to be lumbered with.

Also pleased to see potential bad weather games in Denver and Buffalo have been avoided and we don't have to play in Miami in the September afternoon heat.

A road game in Week 17 in LA is certainly preferable to going to Denver again, though coming off a short week due to playing a MNF game in Philly isn't ideal at all.

Overall though it looks balanced and fair and could've been a lot worse. Pleased with that.

Wasn't expecting that. Big gamble, especially for a first rounder and somewhat out of character for Reggie. Obviously they have done their research and confident nothing will come of it, but given that this only recently came to light, just how much in-depth could they have gone with it? If something else comes to light and Conley faces trial and even jail time, Reggie is in deep doo-doo for throwing away a first round pick.

On the face of it it seems a gamble. Hoping Reggie knows more than us.

Liking the Obi pick, if we are building a Legion of Boom type defense then he is our Kam Chancellor. Surely he has to be given #1 as his jersey number?

Not so keen on Vanderdoes. Fills a need, sure. But the injuries have to be a concern, thought there were better options at the position.

Glad we're in a position we can just draft from our position instead of reaching for players. It seemed there was a lot of that this year

It does make a nice change to be in that position.

Some nice late wheelerdealing by Reggie to get a couple of extra picks. Hood could be a steal that late, looks a bit like a baby Beastmode. Like the look of Ware too (not just because I had him as a UDFA in the mock ), needs a few extra pounds on his frame but has good footwork, can see him being coached up to take over at LT when Penn goes - Sharpe looks like a better prospect inside.
