  1. I seriously doubt it'd ever happen, but yeah - Thomas and Reddick are top 5 players in the draft imo. Would love a trade up for either.
  2. Just learned Josh Jones early reported 3-cone time of 7.43 was wrong; he actually ran it in 7.05 seconds. Matches up with the tape much better and erases my biggest concern. Reeeeally wish we were looking at him, but I do see why people think he's exclusively a box guy...just think he has the range to play whatever we need him to. In general though? I'm really leaning towards Baker at 31.
  3. Long past. They have, what, one winning season in their last 5?
  4. Lmao, you don't really think OJ Howard is a blocking TE. There's seriously no way anyone who had ever watched him could think that. It's like thinking Tevin Coleman in college was a FB. Come on.
  5. Wish they mentioned Max Halpin. Think he's a serious sleeper who could be a starter even though he's likely to go undrafted.
  6. If we do that, I'll shut up, hope for the best, and hope they're right...but tbh I'll mostly be hoping it isn't the worst pick in the Quinn era, because I feel like it would be.
  7. I don't doubt that he could be "solid," by which I mean I'd use a 3rd or 4th on him as a really solid rotational DE. Do you think Clayborn is worth our 1st rounder this year? I don't see Willis being better than him in any way, and yes, I mean post injury. I will be genuinely shocked if he ever breaks double digits in sacks, and he seems more like a 4-6 sacks every year forever guy.
  8. He's played a lot of single high at NC State and actually got a few comparisons to Jalen Ramsey for how often they moved him to slot, corner, SS, etc. But yeah, he mostly played FS. Either way, we aren't looking at him for a reason and I pretty much trust in whatever Quinn does.
  9. That's fair, but similar to Obi and Jabrill Peppers, I think he has the range to play either. (meaning we've looked at both) I mean, he's played plenty of FS. Think he'll probably ball somewhere though.
  10. Yep, OL is garbage this year.
  11. It's about how he studied so much film in 2016 he became known for his ability to diagnose plays of the opposing teams just by formation and alignment. Not about his film (though that's good too). That combined with his athletic testing has teams hyped. Also, that's like...the first paragraph in where it starts talking about that. So if you'd read for maybe 20 seconds, misunderstanding avoided lol
  12. Really hope we bring this guy in at some point to at least get a look. Think he'd excel here...pretty cool article. http://www.freep.com/story/sports/nfl/lions/2017/04/23/josh-jones-nfl-draft/100818308/ Jones had 109 tackles and 3 INTs last season, and should be a Day 2 pick this week in Philadelphia By his own admission, North Carolina State safety Josh Jones didn’t have a very good 2015 season. So, looking to change his luck on the football field, Jones stopped by his position coach’s office a few days before the Wolfpack’s first game last year to watch film on his own. He studied William & Mary’s offensive personnel and scheme, had the gameplan down pat before coaches put it in, and when he played well in a 48-14 victory, intercepting a pass and making a few tackles, Jones decided to do it again the next week. North Carolina State's Josh Jones attended Walled Lake Western. Ethan Hyman, Associated Press For the rest of the season, former N.C. State safeties coach Clayton White, now the defensive coordinator at Western Kentucky, said Jones made a habit of stopping by his office a few nights a week to study film. “He would come in on Sunday and Monday himself and watch it by formation, by personnel, kind of make his own notes, and then by the time we had the gameplan ready on Monday nights as a staff, he knew the formation and the backfield sets, he kind of knew their favorite plays always,” White said. “That was his goal, by Tuesday morning to know their favorite plays so when the gameplan came together he kind of (had it down). By the time we got to Thursday, it was pretty impressive. It was the most impressive thing that I’ve been a part of as far as kids studying the game like that.” Jones’ extra film work paid dividends last year, as the former Walled Lake Western star led N.C. State with 109 tackles and three interceptions. He declared early for the NFL, and after visiting teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns and New York Jets, the hard-hitting safety is expected to be a top-60 pick in this week’s draft. North Carolina State strong safety Josh Jones speaks to the media during the 2017 NFL combine. Trevor Ruszkowski, USA TODAY Sports “He loves football,” White said. “He loved to learn the game of football. Not just the regular stuff, but the details of the game and he takes pride in being a smart football player. That’s something he had to improve in over his years there. It wasn’t like that when he first got there, so he just kind of took pride in becoming a high football IQ type of player.” Western coach Mike Zdebski said he saw NFL potential in Jones, a two-way standout in high school, almost immediately after he transferred to the school from Southfield High before his junior season. Zdebski said Jones scored five touchdowns in a playoff game against Fenton as a senior, and he recounted a 95-yard kick-return touchdown that Jones scored against rival Walled Lake Central when he ran about 200 yards. “He went left, he went right, he went backwards, he went back left, back right, backwards again,” Zdebski said. “Eventually he ran around everybody and he made all 11 guys miss at least once.” Zdebski, who coached former Michigan State and Tennessee Titans safety Aric Morris in high school, said he told Jones before his senior season: “Your goals can’t be just to get to college. Your goals should be to play in the league because God blessed you with enough talent, ability, to have that opportunity." “He understood that and he had the same goal at that time,” Zdebski said. “He had the vision at that time, and that’ll push you in the direction if that’s really what you want to do.” Jones chose N.C. State over Illinois, Pitt, Colorado and a few other out-of-state schools in part because “I didn’t really travel much growing up so (I wanted to) expand what I’ve seen.” After redshirting as a freshman, Jones made eight starts at strong safety in 2014 and finished second in the ACC with four interceptions. His play dipped the next year when he made just one pick and 64 tackles, and looking back, Jones said last month at the NFL combine he didn’t take the right “approach to the game" in 2015. “Every dog’s going to have his day and I had a year,” Jones said. “I didn’t like that feeling, having a bad year. I’m my biggest critic so I did in the off-season, I told myself that’ll never happen again. And every media, every guy that would bring it up this past fall, I would tell them you will never see that again out of me.” Jones played his best football last year against some of the top teams on N.C. State’s schedule. He had 11 tackles against eventual national champion Clemson, forced and recovered a fumble and broke up three passes against seventh-ranked Louisville, and had 15-tackle games against both Miami and Boston College. “His style is reckless at times. Very under control at times,” White said. “He’s very fast, physical. Ball hawk. I mean, he finds the football like no other. He’s going to play extremely hard, as long as he possibly can. He’ll never give up. He’s going to be invested, he’s going to care and he’s going to make play.” White said he expects Jones to play as a strong safety in the NFL – “If you want the best out of him, you put him near the ball,” he said - and Zdebski said he has fielded inquiries from a number of NFL teams this spring, including the Arizona Cardinals, Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts. The Los Angeles Rams even sent a scout to Western to take a first-hand look at Jones’ “squeaky clean” discipline record and academic transcripts. “I envision him finding a DB coach in the NFL that’s going to really be extremely happy to have a player of that caliber, No. 1,” White said. “No. 2, I can see him being a starter for the right defense, the right scheme for a long time in the NFL, and if he gets the right production, he can be a potential all-league type of player. But he’s definitely a talent and one of a kind.”
  13. If he is somehow, I'll hope you're right.
  14. On that topic, I think I'd rather get Solomon Thomas. Why are people mocking players in the 30s to us when this guy is a top 5 player? Just get Solomon Thomas already.
