Default Which Teams Like Connor?

Really not terribly interested in the draft except for how it impacts our boys.

I REALLY want Connor to get a shot and not go as a free agent.

Which teams were likely to give him a chance?

Mel Kiper can't even predict which teams go with what based on their need.
His big board is usually pretty damn good, but he can't seem to predict which teams go after whom from that big board.

If Mel can't predict this, and this is literally his career- its all he does, all year long...what makes you think someone from this board would be able to predict such?

Not trying to be an ass, just trying to point to the difficulty of predicting which teams will go with whom.

I'm a Panthers fan...and I never expected they would go with a DE and G for two of their first three selections.

Those doing the picking (NFL teams) get who they want...and not what everyone else thinks they should get. The fallacy of those draft boards is they try to align everyone into some kind of pecking order....but it fails big time in assessing what the teams want/need/plan for/can afford.

It's so much more complicated than just making comments on a prospect's game clips and rating them accordingly.

But all this guessing must be making someone $$ because they keep doing it and it appears to be growing.

Free agents have more choices and not much difference in money.(late rounds) Nothing is certain even if they are drafted,

You are right. To be drafted is the luck of the draw. Go to a team loaded at your position greatly diminishes your chances of sticking. Free to sign on your own gives you a chance to shop for the team with the greatest needs at your position.

Correct me if I am wrong but being drafted in the later rounds just guarantees that you have a spot at training camp.

To be completely honest, its starting to look kind of dim for Connor to get drafted, each day that goes by where I don't even see Ellington come off the board makes me worry for Connor.

First 3 rounds pretty much guarantees you a roster spot. 4th through 7th is where they have to fight for a roster spot.

...along with a bunch of UDFAs...including walk-ons.

Picking up free agents is as important as the draft...this is where a lot of the lower picks get left out...they have to compete with legacy roster guys, high draft picks, and new free agents that got signed in the off-season for 53 roster spots.

Tough league...but the practice roster provides some buffer for developing players.

Well good thing Bruce got taken by San Fran, as for one player that hasn't been selected yet which is a head scratcher to me is Kelcey at DT. I've seen some DT's selected that I KNOW KQ is better than.

Aaron Murray just came off the board. I'm really pulling for Connor, but the QBs are coming off the board very slowly. RBs too this year.

The draft is a weird thing. It is not all about how good you are. You have to be playing the position a team needs when their selection comes up.
There may be a team right now already planning on letting Connor on board through free agency so they don't use up a draft selection on him.

I hope not, he at least deserves to have his name called. I don't care if it is last.

Seeing Mettenberger drafted before Connor just pi$$es me off. Seriously, knee surgeries, back problems, and diluted urine sample at the combine, NTM, 16-9 as a starter. BS.
