Stop...you know there will be 6 feet corners available. Stop.
I want all of those with the height.
Again....im not talking about anybody but us. What does Brady do to our zone????? Yeah....uh huh. And when we manned up on him exclusively, that was when we won. Dont care about Seattle, I care about our zone; the one Brady and Rodgers picks apart everytime they see it.
You crack me up man! Fuller is all of 1 inch shy of 6 feet but you'll take the 6'2" guy with a 7th rd grade over him
Wow. I never said that either. It's amazing how you work around the clock to put words in my mouth.
All I know is that whatever guy Colbert gets as the #1 cornerback, he'd better be right.
I do believe Billings will fall to Pittsburgh. Keep in mind the same sediments were made about Bud Dupree and look what happened.
In addition, the circumstances for Billings line up with Dupree's in the facet that their positions were so loaded that their fall was going to happen. Billings does have a shot to fall to Pittsburgh much like Dupree did.
I do agree that William Jackson III will be the pick if he is there. However, I do not believe that Eli Apple will be the pick. I understand that this may be asinine to hear Me. Dean, but please, hear me rebuttal before taking action.
It is not that he cannot play in Pittsburgh's scheme. In fact he can. The issue lies in the fact that, out of Colberts past 15 drafts since 2000, all of them were seinors from college. To the Steelers, age and experience matter most. Measurables have never been a let factor to them. Now granted, analytics have been used by Tomlin and Colbert. It is just that tape remains king.
Ultimately, one thing me and you can agree on even if you do not agree with my rebuttal; draft season for gridiron football is awesome. That being said, here's to another solid outing by Tomlin and Colbert.
Don't flatter yourself.
But you've been pretty clear about how you don't want any part of a CB under 6 feet.
I think he'll be there at 25. When I did my mock draft, I focused on matching teams with players that they have been reported as meeting with and/or have brought in for visits. According to the list maintained on the Walter Football site, Billings has been nowhere. Literally zero official visits to NFL teams. There were a couple of interviews at the combine, a private workout by (I think) Tampa, and the reported dinner with Greene. When I searched the web, I found no visits discussed online other than his college visits back in 2012.
Now, I do understand that this information doesn't necessarily mean that other teams aren't interested, but he hasn't had a busy April compared to most 1st - 2nd round graded prospects.
Great post. Appreciate your input. Using those perimeters you just laid out, our choices at 25 are down to maybe 4 players. Interesting.
What I said (in the very post you quoted) was that I don't think there's any chance he'll be there for our second round pick. So if they like him and don't think he'll be there in round 2, take him in round 1. I think the latest he will go is in the first ten picks of the second.
Nice call Lambert.
Yes I don't think many claimed we would take Burns but I do remember this post. Good call Lambert.
I've got to go find him but someone else said Burns too. And he and I had a discussion about Burns and we came to the conclusion that Burns was close to being a first rounder. I'll find him in another thread.
It was GB I think.
