They were on their way to the airport from flowery branch - they drove in the stadium, slowed down to 5 mph while driving on the track around the field and then proceeded to airport to head to Oklahoma.

The Ed Oliver stuff seems like a lot of smoke.

 

Because for all potential purposes he should be going top 10.... no need to waste draft picks on the guy when we could easily get some other dudes to fill the shoes you know....

you have to meet w/ the players you like regardless of whether you think they will fall because you never know and you don't want to get caught flat-footed - gotta see the athlete and gotta know the feel/vibe/character and if he is your kind of guy or not.

Deonte Roberts, a sleeper at the linebacker position, measured 6011 and 230 pounds, completed 17 reps on the bench and touched 33.5 inches in the vertical jump.  His best 40 mark came in at 4.64 seconds and his three-cone timed 7.06 seconds.

Roberts met with the Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers

The entire league was on hand for Fresno State pro day as the program had three players participate at the combine.  Two of those players significantly improved their 40 time today.

KeeSean Johnson, a favorite receiver of mine for almost two years, improved just about all his marks from his combine workout.

The consensus from most was Johnson timed 4.53 seconds in the 40, though there were a number of watches that clocked him under 4.50.  That’s one-tenth faster than Johnson’s time from Indianapolis.  His 60-yard shuttle was an incredibly fast 10.96 seconds while his short-shuttle came in at 3.81 seconds, despite a slip.

Johnson’s also touched 32.5 inches in the vertical jump, an improvement of 2.5-inches from the combine.  He looked terrific in position drills, just as he did in Indianapolis, running crisp routes and catching the ball well.

Safety Mike Bell, who timed 4.83 seconds at the combine, ran the 40 in 4.67 seconds today.  He also touched 31 inches in the vertical jump.

Linebacker Jeff Allison stood on his combine time of 4.82 seconds and did not re-run the 40, which drew the ire of several scouts on hand, especially given the way Johnson and Bell improved their marks.  Allison did receive praise for his position work.

So the Panthers and the Falcons fighting over a right tackle.

 

Not a big fan of Tytus Howard but can see them drafting him and becoming the next Ryan schraeder.

What I mean to say is that right now as it stands Howard is probably one level below Ryan schraeder as a player on the technical side of things.

 

I'm not saying he's a bad player. I'm saying as a player coming out from the collegiate level he has a lot of work to do.

 

He's not as strong as I would like him to be. His technical work needs a lot of refinement. He's a better run blocker than a pass blocker right now, And maybe that's the reason why Ty sambrailo has been given the contract that he currently has. because imo the Falcons know if they were to take Howard they would need time to develop him behind sambrailo as a stop gap.

In my mind the earliest that you can take him is round 3 and the latest would be around 5.

 

All depends on if there is a run on OL @Cole World

15 of 32 NFL teams have Tytus Howard on their list of the 30 players they can bring to their building.   Seems clear he is a hot commodity.  Maybe you just aren't seeing what NFL coaches, scouts and GMs are seeing?

obviously there is a lot of interest/buzz around the league.

It's not that simple 

Just because they bring him in for a visit doesn't mean he's going high 

Teams do visits with day 3 players every year

There was a huge crowd on hand for Louisiana Teach pro day as almost 50 scouts, coaches and coordinators, representing all of the league’s 32 teams, showed up to watch Jaylon Ferguson.  The top 45 pick did not disappoint.

We’ve documented Ferguson’s story at length in the lead up to the combine so interest in today’s workout was no surprise.

Ferguson measured 6043 and 271 pounds, timed as fast as 4.75 seconds in the forty on several watches, touched 32 inches in the vertical jump and 9-feet-10 in the broad.   He also completed 24 reps on the bench press with arms that measured 34 ¼ inches.

Ferguson was run through defensive line and linebacker drills, looking terrific in both.  He moved exceedingly well and during linebacker drills, did not drop a ball.

The team’s other defensive lineman, Immanuel Turner, also performed well, timing the 40 between 4.97 to 5.01 after weighing in at 309 pounds.  

Offensive lineman O'Shea Dugas, who measured 6042 and 335 pounds during the Shrine Game (with arms that reached 36 5/8 inches) performed well in position drills.  Despite playing left tackle for Louisiana Tech most teams project Dugas to guard.

Receiver Teddy Veal was disappointingly slow, timing in the 4.68 seconds in the forty though he did catch the ball well in position drills.

Prior to the Louisiana Tech pro day, Grambling had their workout on campus and the star of the show was kicker Marco Orozco.

Orozco, who can handle both place-kicking and punting duties, was clearing the crossbar from 62-yards with ease.  His longest FG last season was 52 yards, which marked his only attempted outside of 50 yards.
