I'll be here throughout. Have always enjoyed following along with the forum during a draft and rather looking forward to it this year.

Preparing myself for the usual all-night wait for the Seahawks pick only for them to trade out of round one!

Haskins to the Raiders at #4 seems to be doing the rounds. Can’t rule out anything at Draft time, but I’d be very surprised if this is anything more than a smokescreen.

I could see us going QB at 4 if we were able to shift Carr for some picks. But to take Haskins to sit behind Carr for a year would be bonkers.

A system with very short O-Lineman no doubt? ;)

Well, I think most would agree he's been surly and uncommunicative in anything you can find online would they not?

You do that. Personally I find it hard to separate one from the other. My prediction is that he'll flame out, possibly due to injury but more likely because he's just too small. Super talented, no doubt, just too small.

as much as i'm a bit negative on the QBs most of them have things to like and it could turn out to be a good class but they also come with some doubts.

We agree on something! If I were a GM I'd be waiting on the 2020 class and I think Murray and everyone else, were they all in that class rather than this one would all be 2nd Round or lower.

I'm holding out on 2 things.

1. Gruden has never drafted a rookie QB.

2. Mike Mayock

Right similar to last year, here is the discussion thread for the few days pre draft talk (rumours), and then for us to talk during the draft itself!

Who is staying up? I will be up for both days one and two, can’t wait!

Nfl network on the telly, and Bleacher Report coverage on my laptop - plus tonnes of food. Nice long wait for the Colts pick this year too, so even more invested in each pick :D

Think Ballard will do well to match last year’s class!

And 10 - 20lbs of weight too don't forget.

I just can't get away from the stats: no QB under 6ft tall with the exception of Russell Wilson has won a Superbowl. How many QB's under 6ft have done anything in the last 25 years? 1?

Wilson was drafted in the 3rd Round for a reason. Interestingly one pundit at the time (it was Jon Gruden) said "the only issue with Russell Wilson is his height. That might be the reason he's not picked in the first couple rounds" and most evaluators, including those in Seattle lets not forget, had him pegged as a mid round 'maybe'. Murray should be seen through that prism IMO.

#InBallardWeTrust

Gotta be confident with whoever we pick. Remember being a bit underwhelmed with the Darius Leonard pick given the draft hype of players still on the board...one all pro and DROY season later and here we are.
