It’s raining.  No really.  It never stops raining here.  Not a heavy rain.  More of a light drizzle.  It’s just all the time.  

Russell Wilson has set a deadline of tomorrow, April 15 for a new contract.  Should we just go ahead and draft another QB now?  Oh wait, there aren’t any left.  Maybe we could just trade him for another draft pick later in this draft.  Oh well.

So there is this guy left on the board; Clelin Ferrell DE, out of Clemson.  Now I know that Rashan Gary is still on the board.  He is suppose to go in the first 10 picks — but he didn’t.  I think Ferrell has the numbers that look better for  a DE that could push this defensive line over the top.  With Frank ‘the women beater’ Clark on one side and Ferrell on the other side, this could be a very tough front line to penetrate and more sacks will help out.

Last  year Ferrell recorded 55 tackles with 11.5 sacks, 19.5 tackles for a loss, four passes batted and three forced fumbles during 2018. Returning to school for 2018 looks like it was a wise decision on his part, because he improved in his run defense and was more stout at the point of attack. He’s a monster!

Ferrell has superb speed with athleticism and the ability to bend around the corner. He is very fast off the snap to get up field and put quick pressure on the quarterback. Ferrell is more disruptive than his stat line indicates. In 2017, he totaled 66 tackles with 18 tackles for a loss, 9.5 sacks, one pass batted and two forced fumbles. In 2016, Ferrell had an impressive redshirt freshman season for the Tigers as he totaled 44 tackles with 12.5 tackles for a loss, six sacks and two passes batted. Look at the size of this mans hands!

Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson 
Height: 6-4. Weight: 264. Arm: 34.13. Hand: 10.50.
Projected 40 Time: 4.77. Three Cone: 7.26.
Bench: 25

There are a couple of tweets/rumors floating around that the Chiefs might be a good trade partner for Seattle’s Frank ‘the women beater’ Clark. Highly unlikely, but would it be somehow prophetic if we ended up with Clark and Ferrell.

Voted yes. I would love to see the ‘hawks make Wilson play the contract he signed. This could be another Bell situation. He could technically sit and then come back making less money. Ya never know….

rumor has it he wants to play in New York

stjoechief

Voted no because I want Ferrell there at 29. ☹️

Chiefs will probably have to move up to snag this beast!

we will forgive the no vote considering the context of it

The Seahawks are a hard team to gauge. They have several needs, and were supposed to be terrible last year, but actually played well. Should be an interesting pick.

You got that right — hard to gauge. Now we have the drama unfolding with the future of Russell Wilson. Will it affect the draft? About 10 days to draft time. There actually is a good QB pick left on the board; Daniel Jones out of Duke

CHIEFSandSABRES

Yeah his under contract deadline he gave the team. I get it from the players standpoint, they want to be compensated, but I fear this whole AB drama might have set a precedent with these players.

They sure are a hard team to gauge. This pick makes as much sense as any given their makeup and philosophy. I can see Ferrell being their BPA given how this board has fallen. I could just as easily see them trading out of the first round.

CHIEFSandSABRES

Agree, he would be their pick if this is how the draft went.

I’m not going to downvote you for sour grapes. Best choice for the C-hawks even if it is bad news for the Chiefs

I didn’t downvote for sour grapes. I think they have to take a WR here. They have been running a high school offense and I think that is part of the Russell Wilson drama. I think taking a WR will help appease some of Wilson’s worries.

I have no idea who voted what really.

I was explaining why I WANTED to downvote but didn’t. I see the chickens as a team that wants to be defense first. And they are rebuilding to their style. Wilson has been a great find for them. And he will get help. But they aren’t a team that wants to be slightly above average on both sides of the ball
