Josh Allen dropping is shocking

Huge upgrade over fellow Kentucky player Dupree

I think we need to get to #9 or 10 to get the other Devin

Trade will be needed with either Detroit or Buffalo

Does Denver move now that Haskins is available?

Not sure it happens now.

Cincy gets the other Devin unless something happens.

Looking more and more like a DB in the first.

I agree. The Bumgals will likely get the other Devin...but being the Bumgals they could screw up. No reason to trade up with both Devin's and TJ gone.

What's really sweet is that we likely just punked the Bumgals and took the player they wanted

brothervad

Wow

20th pick, 2nd round pick (56th?)

and a 3rd next year.

Not unexpected for Pick #10. Got the player they clearly wanted so I'm "All In"

Trading up costs. Let's hope Bush proves he is more than worth it

I don't disagree...it just looks like a lot.

And I guess if we want a WR in this draft, Colbert shines in finding those in the later rounds. :)

We have plenty of picks to work with. We could even trade back into the second round using Oakland's 3rd that we have.

Deep WR class and we aren't looking for an instant starter since we picked up Moncrief

By NFL standards for his position Bush is a smurf. A fast one but still a smurf. I think our first and second round picks should have been more than enough. Can someone make me feel better about this trade?

They still get the high 3rd round pick from the Antonio Brown trade for this year and should get a compensatory pick for Le'Veon Bell for next year but it is too soon to say what it will be. So I don't think it is too great a cost. Bush is an outstanding athlete for that position. So his height should not be a huge drawback. He is still young (20 years old) so I think he still will develop physically. The thing I like about him is he is quick to recognize plays but I think he needs to gain some upper body strength.

We have to trust Colbert and Tomlin on the homework they did on him and the line backers in general. His size is a concern but we have to give our guys the benefit of the doubt. I still hope we double dip and take another linebacker in the third round. We need a Dupree replacement for next year.

If we'd stayed put, we could've picked the guy I had in my mock at #20 ... and maybe at #52. Not anymore.

But I'm very happy we got Bush and addressed our biggest need. Should have stayed with my next-to-last mock where I had us trading up to get Bush.

How about this:

The last time I remember us talking about Smurfs, it was about a WR corps that went on to win a SB.

Since we picked up Barron I'm not sure if ILB is our biggest need. I'm thinking more towards EDGE or TE in that regard.

Anyways... Bush looks the part. Im fine with the pick. Would like to see WR and RB addressed. Those are also positions of need as well as positions where mid round guys can step in and have an immediate impact.

I’m OK with the pick too. His highlight video illustrates once again that speed kills. Just questioning the price.

SteelBucks
04-26-2019, 07:32 AM
I’d give the pick a B+. Speed is great but I’m still questioning his size. He’ll need to bulk up some and while not losing any quickness. I know they had to move up if they wanted him but I’d like to get a second round pick back somehow with their 8 remaining picks to grab a CB or a safety. A good WR can be had later.

Fashion sense: F. Looks like he got confused putting on the suit and just winged it.

Questioning his size is understandable. I recall that Shazier’s size was questioned too. Some people suggested switching him to safety. Said he’d get swallowed up trying to play ILB. Bush is no bigger than Shazier; if anything he’s shorter.

Shazier is 6’1”. Bush is 5’11”

Bush just needs a little more strength. Love his speed.

No he doesn't. He has the strength. You guys just don't get it.
