Re: Commanders 2024 NFL Draft Thread

I think you guys might be underestimating Zack Erts' role. Have you seen any recent photos or film of him working out? The man looks like Mr. Universe! I think he may be determined to have one helluva last hurrah here in Washington. Also, I think Ertz was signed as a veteran presence in the TE room as well as a contributor on the field, not just as an insurance policy.

Sinnott will play too. They might even be on the field at the same time on occasion. None of the other TE's can touch these guys in ability.

If you are right that would be great. However, I'm not holding my breath. I think Sinnott will end up being on the field more than him, especially down the stretch and/or once he learns the NFL and the system.

Would be a good problem to have though.

Ertz is on the wrong side of 30 and always seems to be hurt, if he can just be a solid 3rd down option I think we’d take that

I agree. Joe Gibbs did a great job of using role players which I admired.

I've always liked Ertz. He can play. He's also 33 not 43 so he's older but not ancient. He should see a lot of single coverage and get opportunities. Tight end will be interesting this year.

Re: Commanders 2024 NFL Draft Thread

The question to Chris Cooley was "What do you think of Ben Sinnott?"

“If he is wearing No. 47, we are identical.”

That was Chris Cooley’s first reaction when watching film of the Commanders’ second-round choice (No. 53 overall), Kansas State tight end Ben Sinnott.

Cooley was a guest Friday on the “The Kevin Sheehan Show” podcast and gave his film review of the tight end the Commanders drafted last week.

“He is what Joe Gibbs used to call an H-back; he’s versatile,” added Cooley.

Cooley was the comparison that immediately came to my mind when I first looked at some Sinnott tape. Now it's confirmed. If Ben plays like Chris did we are very fortunate to have him.

I think ben has some advantages, slightly faster, better blocker (if you need a weakness it's being on the line try to deal with a DE). He has the same good hands and ability to break tackles for sure though. Cooley played B-back in college, sort of a TE that ran routes out of the backfield (and he caught 1,255 yards his last year at Utah, which is crazy).

A Cooley-like career would be great though.

Yes absolutely. A very good player, especially in his prime. Highly entertaining also. I remember seeing him at camp a couple times during the start of his pro career. He was hilarious and a fan favorite. Eager to see what Sinnott brings to the table.

also has a reminder of rg3/DS silliness minutes 4-7 or so :/
cooley starts around 16:20

apparently cooley did a film breakdown on JD and said he was his #1/#1 QB, but I didn't listen to it (yet). While cooley is very good on breakdowns, i'd give more credibility if it were a good QB coach type or like, peyton.

Jayden is our QB now, so I'm not as interested as I was in the pre-draft period about the opinions of others. I don't say that to put down anyone's opinion. I'm just eager to see what he does for our team on the field.
