    But clearly that's not what Gaine intends as he did draft Tytus before Max.

    The sack/pressure numbers don’t mean much regarding Scharping. NIU went down big against teams like Florida State, the quarterback was mobile, the ball was out quick, and most of his blocks did not have attachment to the pro game.

    QB didn't have to move because Burns wasn't going anywhere.

    Yes, the thousands of successful pass blocking reps Scharping has had "don't mean much".. *eyeroll*

    He locked up a top 20 pick in the draft yet some fans think it was a bad pick.

    Burns couldn't get a single pressure on their QB.

    I mean it could all blow up or it could work out. I didn’t necessarily want projects just because our top 3 picks will likely need to play day 1

    This is my favorite pick up in the draft for the Texans. Now I'm feeling optimistic.

    I wish they'd go with huge upside tackles in every draft.

    Now we get to see how aligned he & BO'b really are. All these guys have talent, need to be coached. If BO'b can't get anything out of any of these three, well, he is who we thought he is.

    It doesn't have to be this year, but the next couple we better have a better starting LT than Julien Davenport. Kalil, Howard, Sharping...

    Well if he allows only one sack in 3 years here perhaps we can forgive his flaws? Look, the guy just got the job done on either side of the QB for three seasons; if he protects #4 I don't care what his base looks like. He's not just a pass blocker like Dillard and can play both RT & LT. Only Jonah and Little can do that and hopefully Howard. I'm saying Howard will be our Little but with more consistency. Scharp will be our Jonah technician. I posted somewhere I rated Scharp as good as Cody for right side even if both move to RG.
    Don't forget Taylor's injury. 32 teams could have got him before Jags traded up in second. If Coach likes our starters shouldn't our picks and UDFAs be develop guys? If this season works, we could go BPA 2020 when we have four picks top 100.

    If D, Howard and Scharp work out we might not have to for some time and Henderson could be decent if only as a backup but let's hope

    I love the Scharping pick. I think he’s gonna he a really good player

    Here lies the problem, we have arguably the worst offensive line in the league. So if Devlin, or OB, or whoever comes out and says “we like what we’re rolling into 2019 with, and these guys we just drafted on the offensive line likely won’t see the field this year”. Then I’ll lose what little remaining respect I still have for them as coaches and evaluators of talent. Both of the guys we drafted should’ve been drafted under the assumption that they will likely start day 1. Kalil and Henderson are fine as backups, but if either of them are truly better in the coaches eyes than the guys we just used premium picks on, then we’ve made a catastrophic error. I think Scharping can hold his own day 1, I think Tytus will have more growing pains because he wasn’t in division 1 ball last year, but I think he will be one of those that progresses along the season and hopefully turns out to be solid player by the end of his first year. We’re not dealing with Fitzy or Tom Savage anymore, continuing to allow our franchise QB to be hit is going to ruin his development and will kill our franchise if he loses it. I mean the man had to take a bus for f***s sake to Jacksonville because of injuries, if the guys we drafted can’t play right away, we failed.

    Scharping had pass protection PFF grades above 87.0 every season of his career.

    Well, I've been ignoring their grades all year long (particularly our OLs)... I guess I can start hyping them up now.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm hoping for the best from all our picks. It's just I don't know what to think of PFF's college grades... being that I don't put a lot of stock in their NFL grades.

    I’m cautiously optimistic, but I don’t put much thought to PFF grades

    Not to mention that they cannot take into account the level of competition, I didn’t see Sharping stonewalling Burns in the FSU gam
    Sharping did quite well, but we have to remember that he only faced Burns about 40% of the time, often with help.
    Usually the play would be away from that side.
    The QB could scramble a bit, and when he did, it was never to Burns’ side.

    I saw a definite “pressure” , one “very close to be” if the QB didn’t move away from his spot, and a couple more when the play seemed to call for the QB to vacate the pocket.

    And yes, there were a lot of quick passes, too.

    Will have to take a closer look at more games, but the competition level in the MAC isn’t all that great, and his team usually didn’t score much against the better teams last year.

    The one exception is the MAC Championship game against Buffalo when they scored 30.
    I intend to watch that game when I have some time.

    Also,don’t forget that NIU only averaged some 155 yards passing per game.
