Darnold seems like a no brainier, yes.

Sorry about the wait on that one guys, Been an insane day. Surprised Allen actually lasted to the 5th pick, but I'll gladly take him here given my bad QB situation and that he's almost a guarantee to be drafted in the 1st round next season if he builds on last year.

The quality of competition is an issue, but he's got about every tool in the box that you want to see. Good mobility for a guy his size.

If Darnold and Allen would have both been available, who would you have taken?

It's a tough call. Obviously Darnold has more experience against elite competition, but didn't even play a full season last year. There's some obvious mechanical issues when you watch him play that will have to get corrected at the next level. Allen seems like he might be a little more polished mechanically and have better better physical tools, but will it translate against elite competition? Hard to know because he doesn't play in a P5 conference.

I probably would've gone Allen still but can't fault anyone going the other way. Actually probably prefer Rosen to both of them though, even though he already seems like a d*ck.

I thought about Allen but competition level decided it for me. He was picked 5 times by Nebraska.
Still, I'd take either of them over Rosen.

I had 3 names down pre-draft and after the top 3 felt good about things as none of them had been picked. Then when 2 of those names went #4 and #5 I got nervous. Good pick Jam, but thank you for not taking #3!

Darnold vs. Allen right now all depends on your comfort level with risk.

1.07 The Lerner Football Experience - OarChambo - Kalen Ballage RB Arizona St


He was the guy I went back and forth with vs Trayveon Williams. I thought he might (slight chance) make it to me in Rd 2....rarely happens here.

Man Steve, no matter what draft or sport it is, you've got a knack for taking the guys I've got queued up. Ahmmon Richards he next in a long line here.

This draft feels like more guys get snatched in front of you than other drafts do.

Not sure if A Richards really ran a 4.31 but he is fast for a guy his size. Hated tieing round 1 and 2 picks for players not eligible for the NFL in 2018

Same, but if he made it to 2.9 I wanted to find out with him on my roster.

Round 2 is probably early to take a true freshman, but I've learned waiting on someone you want almost never works out in this draft.

Well, I think if you wanted one of two specific players (he was one), you were going to have to do it then. It's hard seeing both of them not being early round selections when they decide to go barring anything crazy happening.
