This needs to be talked about, not just because it differs so much from Coughlin's, but because it is a huge reason for our success so far.

Eli Apple, Sterling Shepard, and Andrew Adams are starting for us. Paul Perkins, Jerrell Adams, Romeo Okwara, and Roger Lewis have all seen significant playing time. None of them have been perfect, but Mcadoo doesn't seem to expect that. His philosophy regarding rookies is this: they will make mistakes, and I want them to make mistakes now in October, November. That's the way they are going to learn. He'll pull them if he needs to, but they never go in a "doghouse" like Coughlin had.

I feel like this way of bringing your rookies along is much more conducive to success, and it has showed. What do you guys think?

Agreed. He's handled the rookies great so far. But we'll have to see how he handles the ones that continue making mistakes. IMO Roger Lewis is reaching that point where he may need to be stuck on the bench. He's dropped like the last 3 or 4 passes thrown his way.

Overall, though, it reminds me of the 2007 season when all of our rookies had notable contributions throughout the season.

This may not be the best place to put this but I just saw an unbelievable mock that only exists in fairly land.

We're picking 26th, FWIW.

1) Dalvin Cook, RB
2) Pat Eiflen, OG
3) Jake Butt, TE, (Zach Cunningham, OLB was also there. Both would be solid pickups but I like think I would prefer Butt more - would give Eli a solid security blanket in the end of his career and for our next QB too)
4) Deshaun Hall, DE [I absolutely love this guy... I think he will be a steal of the draft]
5) Kendall Beckworth, ILB (I have no idea why this mock had him so late, but hell even without Beckworth, still a solid four rounds)
6) Luke Falk, QB


The only area I think we really miss is DT depth. Bromley hasn't shown an extreme amount of promise, but if we resign JPP then we will have JPP, OO, Vernon, Hall, Romeo at DE. We should be able to sign a cheap 1-2 year stop gap DT to get some snaps will Snacks/Hankins get rest. And if OO takes a step forward next year, we'd have enough depth to bring JPP inside on passing downs, too.

Would give us

Flowers, Eiflen, Richburg, Pugh, Hart with OBJ, Shepherd, Cruz, Butt, Cook, and Perkins.
