NFL 2016



  • Rams and Eagles probably overpaid for the 1st and 2nd picks. Not too many of their fans are liking the trade up.
     
    One of my favorite players in the draft is Karl Joseph. Love his aggression and pop for his size. Might slip to the 2nd round because he's still recovering from an ACL injury.
     


     
     
    I really like Myles Jack too. He might be the best player in the draft, but with his knee being described as a ticking time bomb, teams could be scared to draft him high.

    Karl Joseph goes to the soon-to-be Las Vegas Raiders.



  • 49ers pick DE Buckner. Any good?

    Excellent prospect. The guy was the PAC-12 Defensive Player of the Year last year and his Oregon defense was trash. He's the prototypical 3-4 defensive end, great measurables and has a serious motor. He can plug straight in on the opposite end to his teammate from Oregon Arik Armstead who was a 1st round pick last year. Both Chip Kelly and the new Defensive Line coach are from Oregon, they know Buckner well.



  • 49ers also trade back into the 1st round to snag the best rated offensive guard in the draft - Joshua Garnett from Stanford. Chip Kelly wants to run the football and Garnett was the best graded run blocking interior offensive lineman in the draft and a likely target of the Seahawks at spot 31 who ended up taking a guard/tackle.



  • And with Denver drafting Paxton Lynch it appears CKap will have to stay in San Fran for now. Winning day for the 49ers.



  • Australia will be sweating in its jandals for the next few months leading up to the start of NFL 2016. The 49ers drafted Kelvin Taylor, Florida Uni running back, in the sixth round. He's the son of former Jags running back icon Fred Taylor, so pretty good genes. I doubt the Hayne Plane makes the final cut tbh.
     
    Speaking of the Jags, they won this year's draft. They will have a killer defence next season. Kansas City and Seattle also drafted better than the rest. Seattle got QBs Adams (Oregon) and QB Boykins (TCU) as undrafted free agents.
     
    49ers won the first day but made some strange picks later in the draft including QB Jeff Driskel.



  • Denver picked an Aussie as well

    I'm guessing you liked Boykins and Adams more than Driskel? From what i've read Driskel fits the Chip Kelly system perfectly and has some outstanding traits (size, arm) but he needs to be rebuilt after being mishandled at Florida. He's in a good spot to develop with 2 starters on the roster already (Kap, Gabbert).
     
    I think the strangest pick for the 49ers was the 4th Round CB Robinson - barely played in college, stick-thin and character concerns.



  • Hayne goneski. He's going the Olympics to play 7s

    Apparently, it's been a lifelong dream of his.

    To do what?
     
    Or to play for Fiji at the Olympics in 7s rugby?
     
    Or just to play for Fiji? Or 7s? or Olympics?
     
    Heard is it Ryan on the Radio saying he wont be selected unless he is good enough, you have to wonder if some promises have been made if he is to turn down a decent pay cheque with the 49ers for a lifetime supply of Vonu Lager 😉

    I never knew Hayne was Fijian. Doesn't look it.
     
    He's hardly going to just walk into the team either.



  • apparently his dad is Fijian, and if I heard correctly his dad played for the Warriors...



  • Yeah and Hayne played for Fiji at the 08 Rugby League World Cup I think.
     
    Seems like more of a face-saving transition rather than a burning desire for 7s, if it's truly the latter why has he left it so late.



  • NFL was the bigger dream?
     
    Step into French rugby be the logical choice given Paramatta aint gonna be able to stump up the cash for him!



  • He could come to the Warriors if they can cast off Hurrell and open some salary cap space! Though whomever can buy Hurrell would probably be better off just buying Hayne.
     
    An Aussie drug administrator is pointing out Hayne is ineligible for 7s because the NFL is not drug testing compliant with rugby's Olympic requirements.



  • surely he can just get tested voluntarily?



  • Hayne will come off the NRL in fucking good shape. But NFL shape. How is he going to get "7s fit" in a couple of months?
     
     
    Is Hayne retiring from the NFL like me retiring from the All Blacks?

    I haven't retired from the ABs yet!

    Another NFL player has joined up with USA 7s (with no such qualms) so I think Aussie administrator is talking a load of bullshit. Aussies do that from time to time.
     
    I'm guessing the 49ers would have sat down with Hayne and said he wasn't in their short term or long term future. They have just drafted a pretty talented RB from Florida.
     
    So Hayne got his manager to see if any of the Olympic squads were interested and it was Fiji (thought Aussie would have creamed their jeans over the great and glorious Hayne joining their little tinpot team).

    Nate Ebner moved earlier this year so the 6-month period probably would expire before the Olympics. Is that who you're talking about?
