Shane Ray Arrested Today


Recommended Posts

Man, that dude's weight is fluctuating all over the place. 235 at the combine, 242 at a weigh in, apparently under 230 a couple weeks later, 237 a week after that (now)...I don't know how I feel about that. I worry about him, probably just stress, but even then you shouldn't be bouncing around like that. I wonder what's up.

I would be surprised to see this helped Gregory's stock tbh. Could be back in the top 10 easy.

The report last week was 220.

If that's true...he's stupid.

Gurley at 8, Ray in late first round, would people be happy or still whine?

Gregory honestly reminds me alot of Abe. If he can keep his nose clean I'm all for it. If Gregory didn't have his history he'd be in my top 2. I just dont want a beast who only plays 5 games a year because he's suspended

Doesn't remind me of Abe at all tbh. Doesn't remind me of Dion Jordan like some say either, or those cats saying Jason Taylor...if I'm being real, his playstyle reminds me a lot of Jevon Kearse. Partially the height, but also the way he carries it and how he rushes the passer. Very intriguing.

The dangers of drafting either man is very real. Let's not pretend there is no danger. Okay, the league is getting more serious about this. Do you take a chance? As much as I am down on Gregory, he's better than anyone we have...but so is everyone else we have been linked to.

I'm not taking either one atEight. They both have showed they aren't ready to handle the responsibility that comes with position. I believe in second chances but at this point I couldn't rationalize using anything less than mid to late second round pick in either of these guys. Ray really pissed me off with this news cause hes got pro bowl potential if his head stays on straight. Edited by atlGM

For me it would be WAY different if we didn't have such a need there. If there were a guy on the team right now who could really get to the QB playing at LE, I would say fine. Do it. But there isn't. If we get either and they are out because #420 that would irritate me. It irritates me when players on other teams do that crap.

I would rather take the biggest playmaker no matter who that is at #8 and take my chances on guys like Nate Orchard and Trey Flowers. No joke.

yep I'm cool with taking Gurley or whatever olineman they like at this point. I think orchard and Marcus golden are our best pass rusher options right now. I think it would be really smart to see what the eagles want for vinny curry as well.

Sure the benefits are high...lol. Thing is though, its illegal and a banned substance in the NFL. Word is they aren't getting any softer on it, they are getting tougher on it. Even if legal it will be a banned substance, much like many other legal things.

However tougher stance they've taken, it's clearly not working. Studies show as many as 50% or more NFL players use pot at least recreationally

Many here (not you) pretend there's no dangers drafting Gurley either. All player's carry a certain level of risk, be it immaturity or real character issues (which are not the exact same thing, IMO). Other risks include football IQ, injury risk , upside, downside, coach ability, etc.

For me, If Williams/fowler/beasley's gone, Gregory is worth the cost/benefit risk. There's nothing guaranteed anywhere in draft, but based on what I know ( which I know is limited compared to Falcons due diligence), I would right now have to go with Gregory if still there at 8

I see a little bit of JPP and Aldon Smith from a length and pass rush stand point. I'm liking him more and more as we get closer to the draft and I can honestly say that I wouldn't be disappointed with him at 8.
