  1. I don’t know for sure, but I’m guessing I’ve seen this guy play more than anyone else on this board. Including 7 Cal games I attended. I personally like the pick , and think you all will love this kid when you learn more about him. He’s an old school thumper and is extremely physical, I keep hearing from the experts that he isn’t very fast, but when you watch him in person the dude can cover a lot of ground. Smart kid with a great attitude and I’ve never seen him quit on a play. I don’t care what the experts say, he passes the eye test, I’m telling you. He’ll turn heads in camp. Too many on this board are discounting a player they don’t know.
  2. I watch A LOT of Cal games. I actually likes this pick quite a bit.
  3. I think there's a good chance we get one of those two with our next pick
  4. Walker. I've seen him play and he's good. Surprrsed he went this high, but I like the pick.
  5. Hate this pick. I realize you need a center who can move in a zone run scheme, but last time I checked we tend to pass quite a bit and I can see this kid getting shoved back into Ryan's lap pretty much every play.
  6. Why all the love for Kinlaw ? I’ve watched the tape and never been impressed. Really hope that’s not the pick.
  7. I don’t know who keeps those stats but he dropped a **** of a lot more than 1 pass. Do they only count ones that are lobs and perfectly in his hands? Btw, I don’t hate Hooper. Id love to keep him. I just think you can replace him in the draft for a lot less money. No way I’m giving him a big contract.
  8. Don't understand the love affair with Hoop. He may be top 5 TE in the league statistically, but that's more a product of the system and QB than talent. Do the eye test. Does he look like the play maker some of the other TE's in the league are? He's a decent, not great blocker. He dropped a LOT of balls this year + he's S.L.O.W. Given the type of money he can command, let him go. Easily replaceable IMHO
  9. The Hall might consider his career too short, but Bill Fralic was one of , if not the best guard of his generation. The started using the phrase 'pancake block' watching what he did the DL. I always thought he deserved HoF consideration.
  10. Minus the knee injuries he would have been one of the greats, imho. A lot of people don't realize he was a scrambling QB in College but that was short lived in the NFL. One of the best games I ever saw was during Bart's rookie year. It was at the Oakland coliseum and the game was back and forth. Raiders won in OT on a George Blanda field goal. I think the final score was 38-35. Cliff Branch went off. Rolland Lawrence had a pick 6. Game had everything, but what I remember the most is the Raider fans around me commenting on how Bartkowski could sling it.
  11. Just saw this. See my post above. It's true.
  12. I'm surprised so few falcons fans are choosing Bartkowski for strongest arm, but I do realize a lot of you grew up in the Vick era. My whole life I've heard stories of QB's throwing the ball 100yds, but I've only personally seen one person do it. It was pre-game at the Cal - WSU game in '74.. I was 11 and my Dad told me to watch Bart as he warmed up. His last 2 throws traveled 98 and 101 yds, He was standing on the goal line so there was no mistaking the distance.
  13. You got the year right. It was really my first year being a die-hard football, Falcons fan.
