  1. Chester gave up the second most pressures in the league out of all guards and we still fielded a very good Oline. We don't need to jump high for a guard this year. I thought Wes was much better in pass pro than Chester last preseason but just looked at times like his head was swimming a bit. He was pancaking dudes in his tape vs SEC talent, so he has the tools. I think a year learning the system will help him make a step forward this season. His proday numbers are better than Dan Feeney's for the most part. People may be looking at his inactivity last year and think he's not up to par. I think Garland's versatility warranted him an active roster spot over Wes last year, and rightfully so. I think he's the guy that can step in seamlessly and make an impact. Going to Ryan's players only camp will help him too. Hes not lacking physically at all, just needs to get comfortable in this scheme...
  2. We won't be backing the Brinks truck up for this dude if we brought him in. I don't want to see Reynolds on the field in any other capacity other than ST... Dude is terrible. If he stinks, just cut the guy. Low risk, high reward signing.
  3. I would definitely take this guy on a 1 year prove it deal, 1 mill tops. We have very few linebackers and he has a body type very similar to Leonard Floyd who Quinn was very interested in drafting. I'm sure if Quinn can't get anything out this guy, no one can. Give him a chance to see if this he can play SAM in a 4-3. If not, just cut him... At any rate, Quinn can ask Shelby if he thinks he can help us. Will have some good insight.
  4. Yea, the tape on those guys is good but not amazing, you know? If we draft a guard in the first, I want a dude that has tape that blows me away. I'm just saying, even Wes's tape had me like, woooow on a some plays. Didn't get a ton of that from these guards even though they have plenty of tape out.
  5. LOL! Man that sounds like the worst! LOL! Quinn knows exactly what he wants this team to look like. The man has a vision. We are gonna get a stud edge rusher... Heck, we may even contemplate moving up, as most of our positions have been spoken for. I doubt it happens, but we do have a little more flexibility to do so if a guy we really want is there in the late teens/early twenties...
  6. Gotta trust the process KOG. TD and company have been doing an unbelievable job the last few years in adding talent from the draft. These moves make it look as if we are going to draft the majority of our players this year, if not all, on the defensive side of the ball. I really see no reason to jump high for a guard at this point. Wes dang near beat Chester out last year (he looked better in pass pro all preseason), so I would totally be ok not drafting one at all. We may draft a swing tackle prospect late, but that remains to be seen. Also, with this being the fastest TE class to ever come out, wouldn't surprise me one bit if we took one. One thing is for sure though, we will add EDGE talent. That's a fact...
  7. Yep, 27 reps annnnnnnnnd almost 35 inch arms!
  8. Absolutely KOG, I agree. If it were me, I would strongly consider both to be on the roster. Dude is a freak also to be so big. Coleman is undeniably the more agile and versatile of the 2 IMO. Plus I already have in my head, "Coleman blocking for Coleman" LOL.
  9. On to the Thornton signing... Totally think this is a good, low risk signing with plenty of upside. His measurables compare very well with Dion Dawkins (3rd ranked guard on a lot of boards for this draft). Thornton was a little more polished coming out though. He's has had a rough start to this career with injuries, but provides NFL starter experience. Plus he's a fighter with the "grit" all of us know Quinn loves. I mean this guy's mother and sister was murdered, abused by his father, and even got locked up for pulling a fake id. I mean dang man, everyone had a fake id in their life, but this dude gets locked up over it. He's been through a lot, but still grinding and deserves another shot. He also was a wrestler in high school, so had to intrigue Quinn even more. Like it... Solid move.
  10. LOL. My bad. Was just reading his draft profile. He hasn't caught a pass in 4 years...
  11. Guy hasn't caught a pass since high school though. Ryan likes his backs to be able to catch the ball out the backfield. Coleman can do this well and, IMO, was underutilized in Seattle.
  12. Agreed. Coaches may elect to keep both though and drop Ward. Use D.Coleman as your primary FB and 3rd RB for short yardage. Use Soma as your goalline FB and special teams specialist (blocked a few punts at USC). Soma does have PS availability, so may not work out like that, but is an option and not far fetched at all...
  13. Makes sense... Thanks for the info gdawg.
  14. Lowkey its a steal... He got himself in some trouble last year by getting in a car accident, getting a concussion, and fleeing the scene. Not only that, but police found some synthetic weed in the car too. Just an overall bad set of events that probably started his way out the door in Seattle. We are all human and make mistakes. I'm sure he's learned one **** of a lesson from all that and is focused on being the best ball player he can. Quinn took a shot on the guy and I see why. He is a gifted athlete, who is still in his prime with experience in a zone scheme at the NFL level. Draft doesn't have a FB with his skill set at all. Good move on a 1 year prove it deal... I didn't even know he was available...
