  1. I keep seeing this, and I keep having nightmares of the "extremely raw" Peria Jerry, JA98 and Hageman types... is this what we really want in a first round pick? Aren't the "extremely raw" guys supposed to go in rounds 4-7? Heard Mark Schlereth say today he'd take a football player over an athlete every time, because not all athletes can play football...
  2. I can get behind this. I know DT is a huge hole, but I don't want to waste our first round pick on a project, raw, 3rd or 4th rated player at the position just to fill a hole with a first rounder if the guy shouldn't be a first rounder. Much rather take a surer bet like the top TE or someone like R Evans and double dip DT in later rounds...
  3. Thank you very much. If this is the consensus on him, I'll pass. Sounds like a JA98/Hageman situation. Rather take R Evans than a project DT in the first...
  4. This sounds more like JA98 than any of those other guys... 3. TAVEN BRYAN, Florida (6-5, 292, 5.05, 1): Recruited early as an offensive tackle, he came to enjoy defense more and became the first player from Wyoming (Casper) to sign with Gators. “He’s a disruptor but he doesn’t finish,” said one scout. “He might be the most explosive of all these guys. Florida’s defensive line was so bad he got double-teamed most of the time. He has pressures, not sacks.” Third-year junior, one-year starter. “I like everything,” said a second scout. “His person, his athleticism and his ability to get off the ball. He can be a one-gap or a two-gap player. If he gets to the right scheme he can flourish. People think he’s goofy but he’s not. He is who he is.” Minimal production, finishing with 67 tackles (10 ½ for loss) and 5 ½ sacks. “If you were his parents you’d be proud of him because you could say, ‘My son plays his butt off,’” said a third scout. “And he does. But this guy leaves more plays on the field than anybody with his skill set that I’ve ever seen. He is so much more into intensity at the expense of discipline and sound football. He’s going to have to be uncoached … He puts his hand on the ground and just winds up his engine and if he’s got to be in the B gap he’s going to be in that B gap so hard that by the time he finally gets himself in a position to find where the football is it’s already seven yards downfield. Every once in a while he’s going to make not just a normal play but it’ll be a sensational play where he just throws you for an 8-yard loss because every once in a while blind hogs get acorns. They do. If he guesses right he’s a beast. If he guesses wrong he’s upside down some place.” Led defensive linemen in vertical jump (35 inches), broad jump (9-11), short shuttle (4.48) and 3-cone (7.12). “I don’t see it at all,” another scout said. “He plays erect, gets pushed around in the run game, didn’t have a feel for the game. Straight-line, no moves. I’m perplexed.” Wonderlic of 26. Added a fifth scout: “He goes to the combine and his interviews were awful. Little immature just the way he acts and the way he does things. But I’d take him in the 20 area.”
  5. Care to sell me on Bryan? Personally, I'm just not seeing it... Would rather move up for Payne than wait on Taven...
  6. Does anybody want to sell me on Taven Bryan? Just not seeing it. Guy seems to be slipping, and I'm not sure I want a 3-4 rated player at his position as my first rounder. Watched some tape on him; not a lot... but what I did see was... unimpressive for a 1st round pick.
  7. Exactly... we already know where and who (just not when) 14 of the 16 games next year are played... And the year after that... and the year after that... and so on...
  8. No problem... we've got a great D and a great running game... all necessary for late season, cold weather games. I like the schedule; even though we may be on the road a lot in the second half, they're mostly very close to home
  9. Good. We play just fine on the road, and truth is we have no homefield advantage because hometown fans are lousy.
  10. CSU is my hometown college team, so I'm a little biased, but everything you said about Gallup (and his QB) is true... 1,345 yards last season; wide catch radius, reliable hands and speed, good separation... Biletnikoff Award finalist (BTW, as was Rashard Higgins in 2014, with Falcons backup qb Garrett Grayson as his qb... say what you want, but my CSU puts out some dmn fine receivers). I'd be stoked to have Gallup, Grayson and fellow CSU Alum Ty Sambraillo on my Dirty Birds!
  11. The actual most Intellectually Honest thing you've ever posted...
  12. Barkley is just simply too legit to pass up for any hole fix other than franchise qb, which we have. Fournette made the woeful Jags O legit; Gurley made the woeful Rams O legit; Zeke made the woeful Cowboys O legit; Barkley WILL DO the same for whichever team (probably Giants at 2) gets him...
  13. Good point. Change that to 4th and 25 and I might go for it...
  14. Pffft... I'm always right... and if ya wanna know who the King is, check the sigs and the Custom Title thingy, given to me by a Mod... You can call yourself the King all you want; but it's much more effective when someone else does it for you...
  15. Dang, Zach Line for cheap should have been our move... FB is looking like a scary void at the moment...either some scrub FA or a low-round rookie; neither option is particularly appealing...
