There’s no “franchise QB” in this draft. There never is when the Browns pick, so at No. 12 they’ll want a “safe pick” — that’s just a guy we’ve heard of. Mitch Trubisky has a “big arm,” which means he’s tall and can throw hard.And here he breaks down some his favorite meaningless phrases:
It’s all so meaningless. You don’t want to “reach” — that’s taking a guy higher than everyone else had him in their mock draft. In the middle rounds, you go “best available,” or a guy who’s not as bad as whoever is still out there. In the later rounds, you want “value” picks. Those are also just guys that we’ve heard of.
A guy with “intangibles” has no apparent skills.Watch the whole refreshing video below:
A “tweener” plays more than 1 position and isn’t good at any of them.
A “winner” was on good teams in college. It means nothing.
A “workout warrior” looks good in the uniform, but can’t play.
