  1. I honestly don't think there is anything to these diluted urine samples...making weight is huge at combines. Joe Thomas went on a rant about it yesterday I believe.
  2. Yeah that's what I read. Which if true it makes perfect sense, no way to know if it isn't unless he pops hot down the road
  3. From what I read he was sick leading up to combine and was cramping so he drank a lot of water. Kinda impossible to prove anything. I'm curious to see how far he slides. I doubt he's off the falcons radar tho, we did draft Collins who had a history of failed drug tests.
  4. The only one that really pops out to me is Michael Thomas. I could honestly care less what their stats were in college because players bust all the time. I think Ogbah & Cravins will both be very productive but it is way to judge IMO. 1. DE Emmanuel Ogbah 6-3, 275, Oklahoma St. {5.5 sacks rookie season} 2. SS Sua Cravins 6-1, 225, USC {34 tackles 1 sack 1 int rookie season} 2. WR Michael Thomas 6-3, 210, Ohio St. {1137 yards 9 tds rookie season} 3. DT Javon Hargrove 6-1, 300, South Carolina State {2 sacks rookie season} 4. G/T Denver Kirkland 6-5, 340, Arkansas {Massive Guard to anchor the Middle} 7. TE Darrin Griswold 6-5, 265, Arkansas St. {Converted HS QB, Talented with Hugh upside}
  5. I'm fairly certain it was an act of terrorism listening to the guys on post. I'm sure they're waiting on definitive proof just like the Boston Marathon but it's more likely than not.
  6. Giving this a bump since you were spot on last year and we could very possibly target another edge rusher. Hope you decide to do it again this year man. @Kayoh
  7. I remember that one now too. Very good stuff. I guess I could've just pmed you and asked if you were gonna do it for this years draft class. Figured I'd bump it again though and give you some credit. Will give the other one a bump too if you don't mind.
  8. Old bump but was wondering if you were gonna do this again for this year's edge prospects. Look like you were pretty frickin spot on last year. @Kayoh
  9. what in tarnation
  10. During the NFL Scouting Combine telecast on Sunday, draft analyst Mike Mayock frequently compared Wisconsin linebacker T.J. Watt to a notable pass-rusher who has had a stellar career with the Green Bay Packers: Clay Matthews. At first, it might seem like a lazy comparison; after all, both players are white pass-rushers who come from strong football families. At first, I suspected that was the bulk of the reason for the comparisons. And then Watt went through his workout at the Scouting Combine and he showed something remarkable: that he and Matthews ended up nearly identical in terms of their athletic profile. This is notable for Watt, as some draft analysts thought he needed a good showing in Combine drills to keep him in the conversation for the first round. He absolutely got it. Now, it is important to mention that this does not necessarily mean that they project as similar players; instead, it just means that they possess many of the same physical tools. Let’s take a look at the workouts for the two players at their respective Combines: Clay Matthews T.J.

  12. could be a 7th rounder Zach Banner HT: 6'8" WT: 353LBS. POSITION: OT SCHOOL: USC ARM LENGTH: 34 7/8" HANDS: 10 3/4 Strengths Massive man with good upper-body strength. Has length and girth to overwhelm smaller opponents. Able to withstand a bull rush thanks to enormous frame. Powerful road-grader who blasts holes open as down-blocker and generates movement with his base blocks. Leverage not always necessary to produce push at point of attack. Won't find him on the ground much. Decent athlete for his size. Functional combo blocker. Initial kick-slide is fairly smooth. Can make life miserable for pass rushers when he latches strong hands into their frame. Could play right tackle but would need help against edge speed. Balance and redirect are adequate. Weaknesses Weight concerns are a huge issue. Has seen weight balloon to 385 pounds. Pass pro is a major concern. Could be too big and bulky to handle NFL edge talent. Lacks athleticism and quickness to recover when beaten. Slower than desired out of stance. Has to open early and lunge to protect the edge in pass pro. Rarely flat-footed at punch, relying on girth over technique. Takes wide route to his target with punch. Doesn't mirror well enough to keep defender from escaping from side door once engaged. Lack of bend and high center of gravity could make move to guard a challenge. Has had issues with penalties during time as starter at USC. Sources Tell Us "He's a really big guy. That's his body type. If he doesn't work his tail off to manage it, there is no doubt his weight will shoot way up again. Everyone is going to write him as a guard but I'm writing him as a tackle. They all have issues. I think we could work around him at tackle." -- Western regional scout from AFC team NFL Comparison Trent Brown Bottom Line Rare size, but some teams will question whether he can bend enough to be a functional NFL guard. As a tackle, he lacks quickness to consistently protect the passer, and teams might focus too heavily on that shortcoming. Teams who focus on Banner's strength -- drive blocking -- should be rewarded with a starting right guard who is average in pass protection, but who can help turn run creases into running lanes.
  14. Here is the website: I had a pretty ****** draft but it was kinda fun for someone not too great at doing mocks since I don't watch much college football. Try it out and reply with what you came up with. I also used the fanspeak board. You can choose different draft boards you want to base the mock off of. 31: R1P31 EDGE TAKKARIST MCKINLEY UCLA 63: R2P31 S DESMOND KING IOWA 95: R3P31 EDGE DEMARCUS WALKER FLORIDA STATE 136: R4P29 C ETHAN POCIC LSU 174: R5P30 DL DEANGELO BROWN LOUISVILLE 249: R7P31 K ZANE GONZALEZ ARIZONA STATE
