2019 Offseason IDP Rankings/Talk

I've been reading Cincy or Cleveland are the likeliest landing spots. Though the Lions tagging Ansah may leave LB as an early draft option, and the Lions could certainly beat other teams to the punch, as they have an earlier pick. Maybe Josh Allen who fills both OLB and Edge needs :shrug: dude is a beast in his own right, but yes, White is the top LB, especially if looking to fill the MLB/dot roll. *although, drafting White would single they are moving on from JDavis (who is under contract through 2020), or at least moving JD outside...

 

*badferret: I tried to move yours, and my post from the locked thread, but it wasn't a very smooth transition. Sorry, brah...

My mistake. It looks like DET has declined to Tag Ansah, IMHO leading the way to possibly drafting DL/Edge talent over a MLB. JAllen fits the mold/draft slot...

No matter where DL Nick Bosa lands post NFL draft, I will be avoiding him in fantasy, unless he falls drastically in fantasy drafts (I have ~4 IDPs ranked ahead of him, regardless of landing spot.)

I did not like what I saw at the combine, and I agree with Willie Mcginest, who described Bosa as looking extremely stiff, and completely "manufactured." He looked totally out of his element in just about ever phase of the combine, and it didn't appear to just be rust.

Side note: I know he plays on the defensive side of the ball, but in drills that required Bosa "catch" the ball, he failed...miserably.

why and who? 4 IDPs ahead? i'm set at DB, but i'm still trying to figure out LB / DL needs and value. certainly, landing spots will reveal much, but right now, i only have one IDP ahead of nick bosa

I posted the following reasoning for NOT liking Bosa in my previous post: "I did not like what I saw at the combine, and I agree with Willie Mcginest, who described Bosa as looking extremely stiff, and completely "manufactured." He looked totally out of his element in just about ever phase of the combine, and it didn't appear to just be rust.

IMHO Bosa appears to have already reached his ceiling. His body looks completely maxed out (no fluidity to his movement/looks very awkward and uncomfortable), and his skill set has been honed to the max, much like his physical attributes by his NFL family members, hence the term, "manufactured." At this point I think Bosa is counting on his brand/name to set his market, but I'm not sure the nfl his truly buying (it only takes one though)...I know I'm not.  I hope one of my fantasy mates drafts him high, pushing other talent down to me.

I am highly interested in: LBs DWhite (White being the #1 IDP) and DBush + DLs: MSweat and RGary (if they remain DEs, which for Gary seems a given).

LB JAllen to a lessor extent, as his production will be very DST scheme/position designation dependent; don't want him as an Edge/OLB designation (dings his scoring output in my league).

maybe i should study his combine performance more closely, but the combine doesn't necessarily translate to NFL productivity. in college, the little bosa was a force, and i particularly like the way he lunges: he's a straight-ahead pass-rusher, and it's an all-or-nothing move to use your momentum in a lunge, but he's more on the money than not. and i'm not talking about the multiple sack games against weak offensive lines (like UNLV), but the battles against top lines (like wisconsin and michigan state).

i agree with you it's ill advisable to break the bank on him, and that people drafting nick but expecting joey may fall short, but if a wrecking ball doesn't destroy the combine, i'm ok with that. vontaze burfict, justin houston, navorro bowman, and terrell suggs all had poor combines but came on strong as young nfl stars. just sayin'.

To expound further: it wasn't Bosa's combine numbers, but his combine actions that turned me off. I watched the entirety of his workout, and he looked abysmal in his movements throughout the drills, and not just the drills that were measured/timed.

ps: "and i particularly like the way he lunges: he's a straight-ahead pass-rusher, and it's an all-or-nothing move to use your momentum in a lunge, but he's more on the money than not" <this tells me he will be designated as a rush OLB or a situational pass rusher from the DL, neither of which is a consistently high scoring position (in my fantasy league at least :shrug:)
