    Re: This Board Did a Great Job Preparing for the NFL Draft.

    This board is way more accurate when it comes to the Ravens than most draftniks out there if not all.

    to this whole thread

    It made it even more interesting when looking at other teams picks

    There are a lot of smart and informed draft nerds here lol.

    Good stuff from everybody.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    I don't have time to watch much college ball so come draft time I just shut up and read this board. By the time the Ravens select I've got a decent idea of the value of the players available - thanks to you guys. I really appreciate your analysis and banter.

    AGREED! As much as I would love to watch tons of film, I don't really have the time. Reading the opinions that are offered on this board is the next best thing. So thanks to everyone who took time to study the draft prospects and post an educated evaluation!!!

    The Ravens FO has the time & personnel to keep up with what all the other teams are doing, & because they know their FO personnel (having worked with, for, or against most of them), they understand how they plan & how they evaluate talent. That probably allowed them to cut down the huge number of draft possibilities to a much smaller set of probable and worst-case scenarios that they could plan for--& most anything else would be even more favorable. And with that in hand they could be very very serene about the whole process. (It's like a chess game--you don't have to plan your response to every move, just the ones that have some logic to them; your opponent's obviously pointless or stupid possibilities you can handle on the fly.)

    But for a group of inspired amateurs without that experience or personal insight, our guys here did a damn fine job.

    You said it man. There was so much good info and analysis flowing around here...my job definitely suffered!
    Thanks to everyone for making me smarter across the board, but particularly more savvy on evaluating guys at positions that I don't normally pay attention to like OG, C and SS.

    Even when I actively or silently disagreed with folks, I always went back and re-watched the video to see why I was 180 out from someone, or why they were 180 out from me. I learned a lot and look forward to the process all over again, and incorporating what I've learned from others into my analyses.

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    I beg to differ sir. What Hodge and Bayless do is loss of work productivity. What ya'all do is a public service ... well kind of.

    Re: This Board Did a Great Job Preparing for the NFL Draft.

    At one of the London games they interviewed a Brit who said he was an avid fan of NFL football & when asked why, replied (I paraphrase):
    It's like watching a high-speed chess match between two masters where the board gets reset for a new game every 45 seconds.
    Which is about how I view it.

    The neat thing about hanging on RSR through the year is being introduced to (& educated about) the chess games revolving around contracts & the salary cap & free agency & the draft & more free agency & camp & camp cuts &.... More leisurely but if anything even more intricate--like a free-for-all through the mail between 32 correspondence-chess grandmasters.

    I'm definitely in awe and respect the talented and dedicated minds sharing knowledge on here.

    Re: This Board Did a Great Job Preparing for the NFL Draft.

    I'm more of a lurker here that gets more than he gives. I have greatly enjoyed what everyone has posted and the well versed opinions. No doubt I was better prepared for the draft from coming here. I look forward to it always. Thanks.
    At some point I hope to have the opportunity to contribute with some depth.
