When it comes to building a roster in the NFL Antworten

Color Rush Riley Dixon Jersey , every team in the NFL gets roughly the same resources. With every team limited to a 53-man roster, a hard salary cap, and roughly equivalent picks in the draft (when weighted against the team’s ability), the NFL has parity built into every step of the team building process. The biggest difference between a well-built team and a bad team is how the front office uses those resources, and how well their coaching staff puts the players in position to succeed. Whether it is in free agency or the draft, the name of the team-building game is getting value. The teams that use their resources the most wisely tend to have the greatest advantage. The Los Angeles Rams and Philadelphia Eagles have embraced emerging analytics to make their processes, both team-building and game management, much more efficient. Meanwhile the New England Patriots have built a dynasty out of Bill Belichick’s rare philosophy of extreme honesty and flexibility, both in team construction and game-planning. But for all that, there is one avenue that teams are only just beginning to truly explore, and that are trades. Trading resources — be it players, draft picks or prospects, or money — is a common practice in the NBA or Major League Baseball. The NFL, however, is much more old-fashioned and conservative, but as teams have begun using the careful study of a massive amount of data points (aka: analytics) to help inform their decisions and not just setting limits and thresholds. One of the new frontiers in that study of data is using it to find value inefficiencies in trades, and exploiting them. With the NFL trade deadline (Oct. 30th, at 4 p.m.) fast approaching, sources around the league are speculating an unusually active market. Those leagues sources are expecting the Arizona Cardinals and Oakland Raiders to be particularly active in dealing players.On the Scouts Honor podcast, long-time NFL scout Dave-te’ Thomas said on the Scouts Honor podcast that Jon Gruden is looking to blow up the Oakland Raiders roster. Thomas said, “He wants to put up Derek Carr, he wants to put up Amari Cooper, he wants to put up Karl Joseph. Who else is left over there, anyway?” The Giants likely wouldn’t have an interest in Carr or Cooper, and Thomas suggested that the Jacksonville Jaguars could be trading partners for Carr and Cooper. He added that they have almost no choice but to release Blake Bortles at the end of the season. He also threw out that a second round pick could be a potential price for Carr.Then there are the Arizona Cardinals, who are also sitting at 1-5, could also be putting some of their best players on the trading block as they retool for Steve Wilks’ vision of the team.“I have the feeling Color Rush Landon Collins Jersey ,” Thomas said on the podcast, “that if someone comes along and makes an offer on David Johnson, he’s out the door. Patrick Peterson, he’s another guy that they’re talking about. The two linebackers, Deone Bucannon and Haason Reddick, they’re both out on the market right now. They just realize in Arizona that they don’t have a choice, they have to blow up the team and start again.” Thomas mentioned that in light of the culture clashes going on in the Cardinals’ locker room, the team likely regrets letting new Giants’ defensive coordinator James Bettcher leave. Peterson is obviously the biggest name put out as a potential trade piece. The All-Pro cornerback was once one of the most highly paid defenders in the NFL, but his salary over the next two seasons, $11 million in 2019 and $12 million in 2020, are a bargain for the caliber of player he is. Where the Giants’ come inBut what about the other players? What about the youngsters who could be on a team for a long time and are still on a relatively low-cost contract. Each of them was a former first round draft pick, have proven themselves to be capable players at the NFL level, and would likely cost much less than their original draft slots while teams look to recoup something for a player they will otherwise cut.If those trades materialize, those are the opportunities to exploit inefficiencies and add value to the roster.Safety Karl Joseph is an intriguing name for the Giants. Joseph was drafted in the first round (14th overall) of the 2016 draft, and is a dynamic downhill playmaker of a safety. He has the ability to play in man or zone coverage, and even matched up with Sterling Shepard in man coverage in the slot in college. He would be an intriguing option next to Landon Collins in James Bettcher’s defense. Bucannon and Reddick are also intriguing names for the Giants. Bettcher found a niche role for Bucannon in his defense as the “moneybacker”, using the former safety’s skill set as the weak inside linebacker. Meanwhile, Reddick was drafted specifically for Bettcher’s defense. What truly makes players like Bucannon, Joseph, or Reddick truly intriguing for the Giants is the value they represent. With the teams looking to move in other directions, they don’t present much value for their current teams. But with their age, between 24 and 26 years old, they each could be defensive stalwarts for the next five years. They are also proven NFL players who would likely be both better and more reliably productive than the players the team would select in the draft.There is also another factor to consider: The quarterback position.With the Giants currently holding the number one overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft, fans and analysts are focusing on the quarterbacks currently projected to go at the top of the draft. However, Thomas isn’t particularly high on the names being thrown around right now. “If you look at the quarterbacks that are out there right now,” Thomas said, “everybody is talking about the kid from Missouri [Drew Lock] Youth Sterling Shepard Jersey , he’s another Blaine Gabbert. Everybody’s talking about Justin Herbert, and it’s insane. Take a look at this guy’s track record outside of this year, he’s never played a full season, there’s always an injury coming up. Are you going to invest that money that you’re never going to see out on the football field? Honestly, I think the best option, if anybody is going to go for a quarterback right now, head on down to Duke. There’s a Blue Devil there that I think is really jumping up the board and that’s Daniel Jones.”If those quarterbacks truly don’t live up to the hype, could the Giants find value elsewhere? The coaches are very high on rookie quarterback Kyle Lauletta, who’s poise, mobility, accuracy, and quick release fit well with Pat Shurmur’s scheme. In the podcast, Thomas mentioned that, though they deny it, the Giants had a draft-day deal in place for Minnesota Vikings’ back-up quarterback Kyle Sloter, but they didn’t pull the trigger. Sloter, 24, is a good-sized and athletic QB who is familiar with Shurmur and his system after last year in Minnesota. Shurmur seems to like Sloter, as the Vikings pursued him despite already having four QBs on the roster, after he was surprisingly cut by the Denver Broncos. A viable starting quarterback on a rookie contract is one of the greatest values a team can find. One on a mid to late-round rookie deal is a rare value indeed. So, should the Giants take advantage of other poor teams blowing up their rosters for a traditional NFL-style rebuild and trade for young players who could help speed up the Giants’ own rebuild?How Pat Shurmur’s influence has helped Odell Beckham Jr. mature In the end, New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. might have found his happy ending in terms of his new lucrative five-year contract extension, but there were certainly times when the path to the bag o’ riches wasn’t always straight.Beckham’s bumpy ride toward lifetime riches has been well documented, with perhaps the biggest of the bumps being his season-ending ankle injury suffered last year followed by some unprofessional outbursts on the field, such as his simulating a urinating dog in the end zone after scoring a touchdown in a losing effort to the Eagles. Fortunately for Beckham, the arrival of head coach Pat Shurmur has helped the 25-year-old receiver gain a new perspective on what’s important in life and how to get there. In fact, since Shurmur arrived at the Giants and began building his relationship with Beckham Alec Ogletree Jersey , the receiver’s time in the spotlight has been mostly for the right reasons such as holding youth football camps and playing catch with young children before Giants games.“I think that’s a good point,” Giants COO John Mara said when asked about the role Shurmur has played in helping Beckham cut back on the histrionics while retaining his passion. “He and Pat, I think, were on the same page from the beginning,” Mara added, noting that the decision regarding whether to play Beckham in the preseason was one that Beckham and Shurmur arrived at together.“I think the thing that impressed Pat so much was the attitude and energy level that he came in with.”Shurmur, as he’s done before, downplayed his role in helping Beckham take that next step forward as a football player and as an adult.“He certainly is an outstanding player and he’s going to help us win games and so I just wanted to get to know him like I did with the other players,” Shurmur said Tuesday. “You’ve heard me say it before, we’re here as coaches to help the players be the best they can be. Part of that starts by understanding who they are as players.”When it came to Beckham, Shurmur’s attempt to get to know his star player included a personal visit to the receiver’s home in Los Angeles, where he spends part of his offseason training. That trip, which coincided with a pre-draft scouting trip, apparently helped get the relationship with Beckham off on the right foot.“Since the day we were in LA and we met up early in the morning -- I drove out there to see him -- and just from the minute we sat down and talked even knowing when we hired him,” Beckham said when asked how much of a role Shurmur’s calm presence has had in keeping the receiver focused while the contract situation played out.“I had asked (Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs) and those other guys about him and just the relationship we’ve been able to build has been really amazing for me.” Beckham fondly compared his relationship with Shurmur to another one he considers key in his development as a person. “It kind of reminds me of the relationship I had with my high school coach, who is somebody I still talk to this day, a guy who taught me to be a man and do these things,” Beckham said. “So the relationship that we have is very good. I love everything he’s done since he’s walked in the building and I’m just happy to be a part of it.”While Shurmur keeps the specifics with his players private, one of the several lessons he’s o doubt shared with the receiver is to play with controlled passion.“We all need to control our bodies and our minds,” Shurmur said. “We talk about that with the players constantly, making sure they keep their composure. There’s a real fine line from being competitive and then crossing that line. He’s no different than any other player and we all wrestle with it as competitors.”He then smiled and admitted, “When I was a player, I was involved in a fight or two myself, so I understand mentally how that plays out.”Beckham will be the first to admit he’s not perfect and that his maturation process still has some ways to go. But with Shurmur there to guide him through the challenges that come with being a professional football player in one of the largest media markets in the country, the outlook is bright.“I’m growing up,” Beckham said. “I’m able to take everything that’s happened for me and make myself into a man and learn from those mistakes and be able to look myself in the mirror and have to deal with those things.”
