Simmons is like a bigger Jabril Peppers.
A bigger, stronger, faster, better version of Jabrill Peppers.

They got the most important piece right.

Tua is a winner. He will push that thing forward in the right direction.

I’ll be interested to see who they get with their next couple picks.

Plus New England is poised to take a nose dive. That division is wide open and up for grabs.

Kinda weird how Saban screwed Miami by going to Bama and just repaid Miami by giving them the best QB that Miami has drafted since Marino.
I would say Miami screwed Saban, and themselves, when they wouldn't sign Drew Brees.

Not sure I buy Saban’s spin on that.

The truth is that at that point in time Brees wasn’t as accomplished an NFL QB as Culpepper. Culpepper had been blowing up the stat line with Moss in Minnesota, think he might’ve even won a league MVP.

Brees was already getting drafted over by San Diego before he ever hurt the shoulder when the Chargers took Eli #1 and swapped him for the #4 pick Phillip Rivers.

Saban is a tyrant. If he wanted Brees he would’ve gotten Brees.

just stupid

As are the Jets. As one of the few "bad" teams with well built lines, leave it to the Jets to draft an overweight health risk at Tackle. Why the Jets didn't give Darnold a weapon with all those top receivers left to choose from...any one of Jeudy, Ruggs, or Lamb would've made an instant impact.

Of course the Raiders blindly take the fastest guy.  This is idiotic.  How has it worked out for them the last 20 years?

Would you buy the spin of fins owner and/or one of the doctors that was consulted?

There's no way to find out, but I'd love to know how often when a team moves up one draft slot that the team would have gotten the same player anyway.
