  1. Yeah, I think system alone will be the greatest improvement to the OL. Still a couple of questions at LG and Center, but at least our system will help them out.
  2. I'm more concerned about Center than what happens without Julio. Anyone remember that Person playing center before we got Mack? It was a disaster. I've never under estimated the importance of a good center since then.
  3. I'm not missing the point. I agreed that he's smart. We also agreed that it's unlikely that athletes would get their "academic scholarships" without athletics. Football, in his case.
  4. Right. Even their athletes are super smart. But without athletics, the academic expectations are veritably unattainable.
  5. No. But if the Titans were smart, they should be looking to deal Henry while he's hot.
  6. Totally agree. But while they might not have football scholarships, they often do use scholarships for other things on football players.
  7. What do you think dead cap money is? That's teams living up to their end of the contract when they cut players.
  8. Yeah, that's a lot. Probably more than just happenstance in a very physical game.
  9. Could be! But I do hope (and expect) that we check him out, and decide using all available information.
  10. It's a question of risk v reward. I'm assuming he's very cheap. If he's continued his recovery during the time he has not been utilized, he might be a solid contributor. If he's not as healthy and not recovered, I'd hope it wouldn't be a large investment lost. I'm not going to bat for the guy, but seems like a situation worth checking out. Could be like a Frank Gore type situation.
  11. I think he's been healthy for the last year or so - I think he just got buried by Swift.
  12. I honestly think they couldn't tell the difference between someone kind of violent, with tenacious aggressive energy on the field and just plain mentally ill.
  13. Undersized, coming in with an injury, and kinda crazy... let's say that I was concerned when we got him.
  14. Those are my 3 right now. We'll find out soon.
  15. It comes down to the actual players available, though. If Owusu-Koramoah and Barmore are gone, we should take Williams. That would be, IMO our BPA hierarchy in the first 3 picks of the 2nd.
  16. I wanted to trade back. But Pitts was the RIGHT choice at 4. Ryan needs a backup, not a successor. It would be great if that backup turned out to be the successor in 4 or 5 years. But it's too soon for the successor.
  17. Among how many other players? I forget how many picks he had to give up.
  18. This right here is why I think we should treat this draft of all of them as a numbers game. There is not enough data being collected and the data is there is all skewed by all the weirdness. Just trade back and trade back, accumulate picks, and bring in as many people as we can. I mean be educated about it, but bring in lots of picks. Some (hopefully most) will work out, and and some won't. But if you have enough players competing, the law of averages will work for us.
  19. I'd be good with us getting 2. Williams is my dude for the #1. He's young and well rounded in terms of running style and ability to receive out of backfield. There are some one dimensional (IMO) guys later on who can offer some value either primarily in the passing game (Gainwell) or just closing out games in just completely predictable running situations like Jefferson or Hill.
