off I just want to thank all the fans of this site. I have been
promoting my books for sale primarily on this site. As a result, I
have sold almost 500 books in the past year. Thank you for your
support and patronage, both are greatly appreciated. I cannot tell
you how happy it made me when I read that report. So thank you Draft
fans and Patriot fans alike, and mostly thank you to all the fans of
my books and website worldwide.
crap! I don't even know where to begin. How about the negative. I hate
losing Logan Ryan. He was a truly great player the past couple seasons.
And I say that because he did some things I had rarely seen. I have never
seen a guy who could cover Number Ones, and be one of the top three
defenders against the run every game. He was a remarkable talent.
trading the Number One pick is just mean. I mean, I just mocked Fabian
Moreau to the Pats at 32, and now have to throw it all away. "It's
one of those things, as a competitor, I was frustrated," Cooks said.
"But at the same time, our offense was moving the ball, and we won
the game, so that was the bright side of it. I'm just thinking from a
competition standpoint, I always want to help." I mean, how boring is
a well mocked 1st Round when the Pats don't have a pick? It sucks.
saw it this morning. I would say this: It’s not uncommon, at this event,
where there’s a lot of discussion in regard to picks, players. I said
this before, Brandin is someone we value tremendously in our system,"
Sean Payton said at the Combine. "He’s been extremely productive.
He’s everything we were wanting when we drafted him. Now, that being
said, these news items come up and there are a lot of meetings that take
place here. I wouldn’t say he’s on the trade block but certainly when
a team calls, a team that’s looking for a receiver, and we’re looking
to improve our defense, we’re always listening. I know Mickey has
probably spoken to a handful of GMs or presidents with other teams, but
right now I’m comfortable, we’re comfortable with [Cooks] in a Saints
year… it sucked. So now I'll probably have to speculate on trades again
to find a 1st for the Pats in my Mock. The goods news is the Pats 3rd they
sent to the Saints wasn't theirs. Well it was theirs, but it was
their Compensatory Pick and not pick #96. So at least we got that and 64
to mock. Ug, as they gave up their 2nd for Ealy, but we did also get the
Panther's 3rd back in return.
still has two years left on his rookie contract. "We think the world
of him and his skill-set," Sean Payton said. "[Compensation for
him] would have to be something real significant. That’s part of being
at the Combine, it’s one of the things that takes place here and that
news certainly spreads quicker now than it would 10 years ago." But
if he doesn't fit in this season, they don't have to pickup his 8-Mil
option in his rookie contract in 2018 (though I don't that as a problem).
of the trade, I am big fan of Brandon Cooks. In fact, I like to take
credit for him getting picked in the 1st Round. He was barely seen as a
3rd when I proclaimed him a top WR, mocked him in the 1st, and made one of
my infamous tapes of him as my proof. Within a week or two he was in the
1st in most mock Drafts around the Universe.
had as elite a blend of speed and quickness at Oregon State I had ever
seen. "And really, if you really want to cut down to the chase, he's
a magnificent kid," Payton said. "A worker. [Though] he's not a
kid anymore. He's a tremendous player. He practices 100 miles per hour.
You have to slow him down some. He's got a great rapport with Drew."
When he was out in space you couldn't touch him, because he could beat
with speed, quickness, or both. Usually they with with one or the other.
It's very rare for a guy who can beat you with both elite speed and elite
was as young and talented a WR as has been available in years.
"Brandin Cooks will get a lot of interest if on the trade market.
Since 2014 Cooks has 11 TD grabs of 30 yards or more. Only Odell has
When he is on, he is gone.
he comes to the Pats with some Cap baggage. "One reason Brandin Cooks
traded now is he had a $781,599 roster bonus due on 5th day of league year
- Monday. Now Patriots responsibility." Schefter.
But that is not really a big deal.
gulp, the Pats may get their 1st back. "Saints and Patriots still
could consider a trade later on for CB Malcolm Butler, whose name arose in
talks for WR Brandin Cooks, per source." Schefter.
Though it would make my Mock infinitely more interesting, I would rather
have Butler than the 1st back.
with all the Garoppolo stuff going on, Cooks brings up an interesting
question. As my man Trey pointed out, he has been the 2nd best deep threat
in the NFL since he was Drafted. We all know that Brady doesn't throw the
ball well deep. He has shown an odd chemistry with Hogan. But other than
that he has only thrown well deep to Gronk and Moss. Who some would say
are the best, or close to the best, ever at their positions.
haven't really seen it here, but Garoppolo was great throw deep at Eastern
Illinois. I see Coleman as a better fit for Garoppolo than Brady. Coleman
is an elite deep space player. He needs to run those deep patterns to make
the team better. While Brady is the GOAT, he is not the greatest of all
time throwing deep by anyone's measure. I think Garoppolo will show to be
a better deep thrower, and should easily have a better chemistry with
Coleman than Brady.
this a sign that this could be Brady's last season in New England. If the
Pats don't trade Garoppolo to Cleveland for multiple picks, than they will
Tag him after this season. He will be on the Pats in 2018. I'm not sure
you can say that about Brady. Garoppolo's value to the Pats this season is
in trade. The only way you keep him this off season is because you expect
him to start in the future. Otherwise it is a vast waste of value.
