    Mac and Steelcity I don't know if I can but I agree with both of you. The only thing I disagree with is him proving himself in practice. I don't know if he does or doesn't but I'm sure his desire and intensity are there. We have been known for taking our time in giving our guys a legit chance ,unless injuries cause us to "show our hand."

    My thinking is Moye is simply not ready. With his H-W-S coming off a great pre-season, he was rarely used. This was even with Wheaton missing a few games.

    OBJ is a guy I originally had as a potential third rounder, but after his showing yesterday I don't see that being likely. Where do yunz see him landing?

    Heh, sorry. Odell Beckham Jr. If I coined it, then OBJ™.

    I am still holding out hope he does. his tape is not really impressive cause lsu offense was horrible. he is a good kid and can be the returner we have needed for years. I don't think he would go much higher than mid second. I guess if he was there and Matthews wasn't in the second I wouldn't be to upset. I do like him better than moncrief and Bryant from clemson

    Did anyone catch Nix's broad jump? It took him five attempts before "sticking the landing". Doesn't mean much really, but it was pretty entertaining.

    Probably a 2nd rounder. On the bright side, his teammate Jarvis Landry, who I think is a better football player, ran poorly, so maybe he would be there in the 3rd.

    Dennard at 4.42 was unexpected. I thought he was more of a 4.55 guy, although I'll wait on the officials.

    Gilbert's speed was to be expected. Really looking forward to Purifoy putting up a 4.4 or below.

    I didn't catch it, but I hope not. I'd have go to my other computer to check my notes, but IIRC, Boston was a terrible tackler.
