Looking at the different WR tiers, where I'd rank the players reviewed, and discussing how I'd approach the draft from a weapons acquisition standpoint if I were Brett Veach
Thank you Seth for all of this, really well done and I agree with your conclusions. 2 more sleeps and we'll see, can't wait.
ya. I stopped doing mocks. exercise in utility but impossible to predict what's on Veach's board. I have two players that I would trade up to get(Olave and Jameson). It wouldn't hurt them to take the path of standing pat and taking a WR(as long as the other picks focus on defense that is). Thanks for your hard work!
Coda! Thanks VERY much for this. I can now confidently root for Jalen Tolbert, someone we should be able to snare without giving up the farm! 🥰👍
SETH YOU IDIOT!!
So I'm just here to yell at you in the comments and the only way I can do that with sincerity is to yell at you before I read the article. Really, Seth, do better. 'kay, now Ima go read what you wrote.
The final chapter of this did not disappoint. Bravo! If you are reading this cause it’s unlocked for all and also because Seth really hates money? What are you waiting for? Hammer that subscribe.
JUST PUTTING THIS HERE BEFORE SOMEONE TELLS ME I PUT TIER 3 TWICE!!!!
New subscriber and I really enjoyed the series, Seth. It was nice to get your fresh impressions on the class, as there's a fair amount of groupthink out there at this point. You do a great job of marrying your analysis to the raw numbers and making sure that play on the field justifies the hype around certain prospects. Enjoyed the snippets of video to help illustrate your explanations too (I guess you could say I like the cut of your gif)
Thanks again and apologies for the dad joke there
Great summary and I completely agree with the tiers and thoughts on how to apply the information. Now if all those draft picks don’t burn a hole in Veach’s pocket…
Have enjoyed this a lot. The wait is almost over. Will be fun to watch
This was GOLD. Great write up. I'm intrigued by Metchie, now. Here's where I would add a caveat to your conclusions specifically on the double-down approach. If I got a Metchie or a Pickens or even a Tolbert in the early 2nd round, I wouldn't necessarily double down on WR - I'd look real hard at TE to see if there's better value there than what drops to you in the 2nd/3rd rounds at WR. While we won't replace Kelce in '23, a new TE replenishes the ball-catcher group and still accounts for JuJu and Hardman being gone next year. Again - great write-up!
I'm all for trading up to 15 or 18 to grab Olave or Williams. It would cost a 3rd & maybe a 7th but would give them a 1A WR, IMHO. Veatch likes to trade up to get HIS GUY... so let's go get him!
I've been working through the roster, locks and existing fringe players to make the 53 and came up with 7-12 open roster spots. I was happy to find that many of the WRs you feel fit our needs were similar to mine and they also matched your tiers. I'm down to Pickens, Metchie and Tolbert as reasonable expectations.
