My takes are all on the TL related to this.

For sure. Good back & forth.

Browns didn’t have elite protectors at OT last year but their pass protection results in 2nd half of season were still great because of scheming & the QB getting the ball out on time. I agree Stanley should be in the mix though. Just prefer Humphrey.

But data also suggests coverage > everything except QB & cover ability is unstable year to year. Therefore, loading up on as many talented cover guys as possible to deal with the talented pass games one faces week to week makes sense.

Yeah there’s no way I’d choose a kicker over an elite cover guy, rusher, or pass protector but I understand. He’s obviously great.

Yeah I’d still take Humphrey but it’s splitting hairs.

Realize now Ronnie Stanley should’ve been in mix too.

Good call on Stanley belonging in the mix. Didn’t realize he had played that well.

Aside from this list, Earl Thomas, William Jackson, Cam Heyward, Javon Hargrave.

I considered Villanueva & Jonah Williams just because of the need but went with the best talent at the most valuable position outside QB.

Wasn’t easy to decide but I’d take Marlon Humphrey.

I don’t see his right hand getting smacked but you could be right.

Why is the guy behind him?

Yep. He had issues with drops for 1st half of last year after only 3 in ‘17. On the whole he’s showed way more good than bad & for young TE, that’s huge. So many TEs struggle throughout rookie contracts to finally find success on 2nd team/contract. Thankfully that isn’t Njoku.

People need to let the obsession over drops go. Lots of ways for incompletions to happen & it’s just one of them. The key is making more plays than not & this passing game should do that with this QB & weapons combo. (Also, Njoku only had issues with drops before Hue firing)

Probably one of those where he just didn’t want to be great or something else off the field.

This graphic from 's recents article is so great, because it tells us two things at a time: 1. The "Rushing causes wins"-analysis is flawed, because run rate depends on game status (win probability). 2. After accounting for win probability, winners pass more often.

Most will say Charles better but that’s probably recency bias.

Would be a good one. But I definitely didn’t like Lock much as a prospect.
