I respect EmDiggy for his effort and ambition. It wasn't like he blasted the Ravens draft. Like some posters on here he was critical of not addressing wide receiver. While I understand that view considering Boldin is gone, more knowledgeable fans that follow the team can see there is talent waiting in the wings. I don't know who EmDiggy is biased towards, but I applaud his effort to attempt to be unbiased. Ozzie is the best GM in football. I would think he appreciates the pitfalls of being critical of the draft master.
He looks like a fat, post haircut torrey smith
If someone could arrange a screengrab comparison, i'd be much obliged
EmDiggy is trying to make a name for himself. Nothing wrong with that. However his football knowledge IS lacking. Every video I have watched of his is recycled talking points from the national media.
I wish him luck and hopes he increases his knowledge base.
I give you props for trying to make a name for yourself, but you can't come to our home, make minimal at best contributions, crap on some of our best members and expect anyone to take you seriously.
You get what you give. If people get stupid, then you get that response back...it is what it is.
The only person that has to take you seriously is yourself. Could care less. The funny part is that many of people haven't played, coached nor scouted YET question the football knowledge & intellect of one who has. If you take the hate out of your heart, you'd see the logic and may learn a thing or two.
If people think guessing correctly in a 'mock draft' is a supreme display of football knowledge, then we're worse off as a society than originally thought.
This is a Ravens Message Board where Ravens fans talk Ravens football...dropping by to share Ravens-related content in my mind is adding to the conversation whether you agree or not.
You're missing the point entirely and not winning any fans, Em.
Rule #1 of Holes: When you're in one... stop digging.
I feel like I've always been pretty straight with you and to my recollection, I don't believe that I have ever bashed you or what you're trying to do (I do get it). I mean, WalterFootball is one of the more popular draft-based websites out there and it took him a while to generate the foot traffic that he does. So, from that angle, I do understand why you post your vids to several different football forums.
WalterFootball also just doesn't seem to have a clue on how GMs draft...not only has he been wrong more times than I can count, his assessments are baseless. For example, he had the Ravens taking a corner in round 2 for months and his reasoning was "The Ravens are in cornerback trouble with Webb coming off an ACL injury". Nevermind the fact that the Ravens still have Corey Graham, Chykie Brown, Jimmy Smith, and Asa Jackson.
However, I think one thing that may help you a bit more is if you actually took the time and responded to feedback, etc. I am a huge proponent of mock drafts. I think they're fun, but I also know that don't know everything. And yes, I did play through college, so I feel like I have a pretty good understanding of the game and what to look for when analyzing a player.
The reason why the Tyrann Mathieu pick stirred the pot, so to speak, was because it just didn't make sense for any GM to take him in round 1. He was a tweener (i.e., not fluid enough to be a true corner, but not big enough to be a true safety) and that alone - from a football stance - means it would have been really REALLY difficult for any GM or coach to justify taking him in round 1. And that isn't even taking into account the off-field red flags this guy has. I think Mathieu is genuine when he says that he has turned his life around and wants to do whatever it takes, but let's be honest here, there is a reason why he was drafted in round three, is going to have to succumb to multiple random drug tests, and there is even a distinct possibility that his contract may not include any guaranteed money.
Tyrann Mathieu from a locker room/football/off-field perspective is an entirely risky draft and given the high-bust percentages from the draft, a lot of GMs are not willing to use a 1st round pick on such a high-risk player. Case and point: Da'Rick Rogers. He is infinitely better suited for the NFL when you look at his size/speed combination, upside, and current level of ability. Yet, he went undrafted. Had he not been a dumbass in college, Rogers legitimately would have been a round 1 pick. Had Mathieu not been a dumbass in college, he would have been a 2nd rounder at best.
Mathieu isn't even going to play CB in Arizona.
It just made zero sense to put him there
