Hoy voy a explicar uno de los temas que más confunden a los fans de la #NFL: el SALARY CAP o espacio salarial.

Así se ve el salary cap o espacio salarial por equipo al 26 de febrero del 2022.

Estas cifras cambiarán MUCHO conforme nos acerquemos a agencia libre el 15 de marzo. 2/?
Pero, ¿qué es el salary cap?

Es el espacio o cantidad de dinero que los equipos pueden gastar en jugadores cada temporada, un techo que (en teoría) ningún equipo puede exceder al pagar a sus jugadores. 3/?

Darnell Wright / 6’6 / 335lbs

Right Tackle / #58 / Senior

On this Pass Rep we see Darnell throw the DT down into the earth on a complex Stunt play by the Defense. #HTTC #NFLDraft
Here we see Darnell Wright on a pull to his left to Trap Block the DE, opening up a big rushing lane for the RB. #HTTC #NFLDraft
Darnell Wright vs Will Anderson

Darnell is on an Island facing Anderson’s bull rush but wins the rep by landing a strong powerful grip on Anderson’s chest. Anchors himself down and holds ground.

Let’s get in to 1 of the 2 most enigmatic QB prospects in this draft class. Kentucky’s Will Levis. Before we start let’s go a little bit into the background of the player. This is going to be a long thread with lots of video so get comfortable!


Levis started as a RS Freshman at Penn State, spending 2 years behind starter Sean Clifford. Used mostly as a “Wildcat” QB (fitting for his future) he lacked development as a passer. After once again being relegated to a backup role he decided to transfer to UK.
While at UK he saw much more development as a passer within former LA Rams assistant Liam Coen’s pro style west coast offense during his 1st year. In his 2nd season, Coen left to once again join the Rams as an OC. Rich Scangarello joined the staff as the new UK OC for 2022.

No sabremos hasta dentro de al menos un par de temporadas.

Poco + de 40% de los picks de 1era Ronda no funcionan en profesional.

Pero si podemos ver quién ganó en temporadas anteriores.

(No fueron los Jets)

Acompáñanos en este 🧵:
Para medir 📏 el éxito de un equipo en un draft, necesitamos un método.
Podríamos usar el WAV que mide el valor acumulado de carrera de un jugador y sumar los WAV de los jugadores seleccionados por equipo.
Si fuera así #Saints y #BillsMafia hubieran ganado en 2017.
El tema es que no todos los picks son creados igual.
No es lo mismo el 1er pick del draft al #32.

Necesitamos agregar al método un valor al pick y compararlo con el valor del jugador en la cancha.

Over the next week I will be recapping my overall thoughts on what every team did in the 2022 #NFLDraft.

Today I will start with the NFC West and cover the @AZCardinals, @RamsNFL, @49ers and @Seahawks
the @AZCardinals recap

2 (55) TE Trey McBride
3 (87) EDGE Cam Thomas
3 (100) Edge Myjai Sanders
6 (201) RB Keaontay Ingram
6 (215) OG Lecitus Smith
7 (244) CB Christian Matthew
7 (256) LB Jesse Luketa
7 (257) OG Marquis Hayes

fav pick: Thomas
value pick: Luketa
? pick: McBride
draft haul has to include trading for M Brown giving them explosive speed WR they need with loss of Kirk & suspension of Nuk. I think they had more pressing needs than TE after giving Ertz a new 3 yr deal. Think Thomas can become starter & Luketa could have went early 4th

94.01/ Week ninety-four, April 30-May 6, 2022, thread begins here.

Week 93 below.
94.02/ Health update: still no symptoms from my bout with COVID except for general irritability but it's impossible to know if it's different from my normal state. Isolation is lonely (big, if true) but my overall emotion is fear of making someone else sick. Dread is the worst.
94.03/ I see the #Mets won (this is a fun season so far, especially since I'm not the one getting hit by fastballs in the head) and the #NYR won and are ready for the playoffs. Best of all is post-#NFLDraft Sat. night when I get to see all the gifts my team gave me as a fan. #LGM

Little thread on why teams without a big need at QB may want to draft a QB like Malik Willis or Sam Howell at this point in the #NFLDraft
A fair probability of a current era QB becoming a Pro Bowl player in this range of the draft is 8.8%. However the average win share for a Pro Bowl QB is 5.34

Meaning a QB has an expected win share of 0.47 (8.8% * 5.34 win share)
Take that number compared to drafting a Pro Bowl LB (not edge rusher), which has a 23.4% probability at this point in the draft.

Win Share for a Pro Bowl LB is 1.14, giving that pick an expected win share value of 0.27 (23.4% * 1.14 win share).

31 different Pro-Bowlers. Game changers everywhere.

From rounds 1 to 7, the 2016 Draft Class was absolutely stacked 😳 (THREAD ⬇️)
Beginning with Jared Goff as the top pick, the first seven players drafted all have become Pro Bowlers:

-Jared Goff
-Carson Wentz
-Joey Bosa
-Ezekiel Elliott
-Jalen Ramsey
-Ronnie Stanley
-DeForest Buckner
Got to imagine the @Titans were pretty happy when this guy was still available in Round 2 at pick 45.

Kenny Pickett played in 22 games from 2020-2021. Below I'll provide clips from almost every game highlighting positives and negatives about Pickett as a prospect.

Here we go ⬇️
#NFLDraft #NFL
2020 was Pickett's 3rd year as a starter. After watching it back, I'm not surprised he exploded in 2021.

You can tell he was on the verge with a number of plays he made in 2020. Let's dive in ⬇️
Pickett can be really effective in zone read. He has sneaky speed.

I watched back 17 full games from Willis' '20-'21 seasons along with critical plays from several other games.

This thread highlights dozens of plays that stood out both positively and negatively in order.

Here we go⬇️
#NFLDraft #NFL
Willis 2nd throw as a starter is a perfect back shoulder ball to #81. Immediately you see his ability to really drive the ball.
3rd & 7. The slot curl is open for a 1st but Willis gets antsy in the pocket.

Granted, it's his first start and he does still manage to pickup the 1st down. The first of 44 3rd downs he'll convert with his legs over the next 23 games.

Since #BabyOvalleWatch2021 has delayed our shows on @demboyzpodcast he's are some hot takes and bold predictions for the #NFLDraft
A thread:
Farley's back issue is being overblown and some team will absolutely steal him at the end of the 1st.
There's NO SHOT that there's 4 or 5 franchise QBs in this draft. Lawrence and Fields would be my choices. I have Fields as ROTY if he ends up on a good team or NE.

🚨30 Days, 30 Prospects🚨

#14 - Javonte Williams, RB, UNC

Some people have him as the RB1 in this #NFLDraft while others have him just outside of the top tier, but nearly all agree that Williams is a great prospect and ready for the NFL. Check out why.⬇️
At 5' 9.5" and 212lbs, Williams looks like a bruiser out on the field, but don't mistake him for being only a power back. Williams has good burst and speed to reach the second level and create chunk plays, he can also split defenders and beat linebackers to the edge.
Yards After Contact. Williams eats these on top of his Cheerios in the morning. He hardly ever goes down at first contact and is always gaining the hard extra yards. He led the nation with 75 missed tacklers forced and averaged 4.59 yards after contact per run. That's special.
