Ugh I am just down on this while draft class. I’m not even excited for my rookie draft which brings a tear to my eye.

Hey Justin, a few weeks ago you stated Miles Sanders will likely lose value if they draft a RB. Does round 5 draft capital still decrease the value in Sanders or is his value holding steady? Gainwell should be more talented than a fifth rounder so this valuation on Sanders could be tricky.

Thanks and great article as always.

Wallace-YES Bateman- Not so much. Under appreciated passer + current overrated wr = prime opportunity. LJ finally has his alpha to take his passing game to the next level, which he hasn’t had up to this point. Hollywood hasn’t proven himself as anything more than a speed demon who barely catches 50% of his passes. I’d be scrambling a lot more too if I couldn’t trust my guy to come up with the catch. Agree that he belongs in the range you currently have him, but a couple spots lower than previously isn’t a death keel.

Boy, I hope so. I have 1.08 and loooooooved Bateman pre-draft. Hopefully, he can work his magic!

I think so. LJ did throw for 36 tds the previous year, so he’s got the passing capability. Take the 100+ targets that went to Brown (their only real option up to this point) and apply them to Bateman instead, and with an increase in efficiency over Brown your looking at a 1000+yd/10+ td year.

I am so glad I’ve traded most of my 2020 rookie picks away. This isn’t a great class, especially in the later mid to late 1st range…

Yeah, those 2020 draft picks are worth very much in the 2021 draft, LOL.

That’s why I avoided picks in this draft more than normal.

There comes a point where you cant say ‘no’ to Bateman though right? I thought 2.05 in a SF was a nice enough place to take him once the Moores, Chase, Waddle and Smith were gone. I just adjust my expectations accordingly lol

I traded my 1st, 2nd, and 3rd round picks this year. Not regretting that one.

Truly, Swift is the class of the Lions backfield, but…
With Campbell as HC I see a true rbbc. It doesn’t matter how good Swift is. Jefferson has fallen, for sure. Williams is a productive back, but I can see a path for a tough, production rb like Jefferson to score some points.
I traded away all my early picks as well. Not a fan of the 2021 draft, but I like some of these late round value guys.
Great article!
