Is it me or does it seem Messed up to have MJ read the name of the guy who may take your spot

Yeah, it was odd to have him do that.  Although I don't think Hubbard will amount to much more than a situational guy, Jefferson could very easily beat out one of the current OLB's, unless he gets in Marvin's strange rookie doghouse.

Both r3 picks suck, though they at least picked the right position on one of them.  A LB who can't shed blocks, cover, or tackle.  Nice.  Let's get a kicker who cant kick next.

WHERE'S THE ORT?????????

I'm worried they feel like they can save Fisher or cedric.

I keep hearing Malik Jefferson called a coverage linebacker.

But he isn't

from: http://walterfootball.com/scoutingreport2018MJefferson.php "Lacks man-coverage skills....He is not a linebacker who showed man-coverage skills on tight ends or backs even though he has the athletic skill set to do that......in the NFL, Jefferson needs development for pass coverage"

http://lastwordonprofootball.com/2018/03/30/malik-jefferson-2018-nfl-draft-profile/: "below average in coverage"

https://www.hogshaven.com/2018/2/25/17049202/malik-jefferson-is-a-fantastic-athlete-but-will-that-be-enough-in-the-nfl : "Only average instincts; less effective in coverage than he could be"

http://breakingfootball.com/2018-nfl-draft-malik-jefferson-draft-profile/: "Struggled in zone coverage. Needs to be better at recognizing the passing concept, it’s unlikely that he will make a play on the football, not a large zone, gets too attached to one route and does not transition well.....When asked to drop into coverage you see stiffness working in space."

Time will tell.   They struck out  with that K-state LB a couple drafts ago.   Hopefully this athlete can get on the field.

He isn't even really a linebacker. He is a very raw pure athlete with little or no instinct or passion for the game

What he actually is: a person who happens to inhabit a body that is a near perfect prototype for a linebacker - size strength, arm length, speed, etc.

Said another way - a project at a time when we need starters at the LB spot.

as such, this was a gawdawful luxury pick

dont be that guy, COB :-)

Allow me to play this card:

For all I know every right tackle selected in the 2018 draft could be Willie Anderson.   Until that day comes, log out.

I just stopped giving a fuck about anyone and my life has become much easier.

Couple that with stepping up the quality in my bourbon and life is just wonderful.

Besides, being a fan of this team is just exercise in seeing how much time can be wasted over the course of one's life.

Existentialism.  Forced upon you by the the Cincinnati Bengals.

sadly, after blocking Amphar, I can still see his posts. Ah well, I tried.

If only Vijay Singh were here to help.....

When Malik Jefferson gets done cleaning out my gutters I’ll ask him why he can’t cover anyone when we all know he was one of the fastest guys in his underwear in an indoor facility in Indianapolis in March.

Malik going to play safety or be a hybrid backer/safety maybe? They have him wearing 45

Maybe he's the Shawn Williams replacement. I know a certain former member of the military who would be as happy about that as I was about the departures of Jeffro and Alexander

I’m guessing the Safety pick and this pick will further erode the traditional 3 down 4-3 backer.

It’s a guess because we don’t know the new D-Coordinator.  

Traditional Sam and Mike backers are a dying breed.

Well not like we really played a 4-3 the past few years no? Don't they tend spend most of the time in Nickle & Dime formations?

So Hybrid that can play backer first down DB on  Passing downs.
