    I feel like he goes into each draft with a list of players he wants to take at every spot. If none of those players are available then he just drops back rounds and doubles up on picks.
    I would rather have him do that then force picks, but taking like 7 players in the last round makes no sense.

    I like his draft strategy as long as it hasn't caused them to miss on guys they really wanted. Only the people in the draft room know that, I suppose. Otherwise, it's great to have so many chances to get a couple gems.

    Odds they've missed.......I'd say 100%

    From 2013 - 2018 we've had 26 picks in the 6th and 7th round.

    What do we have to show for it? Stephen Weatherly(backup and marginal DE, and starting TE, David Morgan, who is a dime a dozen) That's it with 26 picks.

    Had we stayed where we were, could we top Morgan and Weatherly? Granted I know we are moving down like 10 or 20 picks, but it's obviously not working. LMAO

    I'd bet this weeks paycheck by the way that they were planning to take Cashman and got plucked, because, well you know.........7th round picks are gold.

    I'm predicting the Vikings take Tyree Jackson with one of these 6th round picks. Take a flyer on a big kid and see what he can do...

    It is much easier to sign more late round players and stay under the salary cap. That's fine and dandy given they found hidden gems.

    It's also much easier to find starters picking earlier. At least, I think I have that right.

    Roughly 1/3 of first rounders, 1/6 2nd rounders, 1/10 third, 1/20 fourth, and so on hang through their first contract IIRC. Someone feel free to correct. There are no guarantees on individual players just like in college recruiting. It’s an odd game.

    Here's analysis (CBS) on the Cashman pick:

    Cashman isn't flashy. He's just always around the ball and knows how to beat blocks to get there against the run. He's a reliable zone coverage linebacker who reads routes quickly and reacts. Tested better than what he shows on the field but someone bound to outplay his draft position.

    He's either going to outplay his draft position or not play at all so that's a pretty easy call to make.

    per Shooter:

    Blake Cashman, a fifth-round pick of the New York Jets on Saturday, can expect a $12.9 million, four-year deal, including a $305,000 signing bonus. The ex-Eden Prairie linebacker began his Gophers career as a walk-on.

    Go Gophers!!

    That's some good coin.

    Went over to see what jets fans were saying on Gang Green and the tone and discourse reminded me of how irritating, unthinking, and impolite New Yorkers (or “real”) can be. Their analysis amounted to reading Zeirlein’s profile and seeing he was a white walk on.

    Currently, sounds like their top 3 are pretty solidly entrenched but at least one is in a contract year in 2019 and is likely to be cut loose. Cashman is going to have to win the fans favor. Special teamer this year and fight for more time in 2020.

    Like I said in the other Cashman thread, I think he was a third-day guy because scouts look past eye-popping combine results in a lot of cases. Cashman is a good player and I think he has a higher ceiling than fellow-EPer Connelly, but a lot of that is going to depend on scheme. Should be a dynamite special teams guy right out of the gate.
