    We could use a Swiss army knife type player. Has to be at least center guard capable.:cool:

    One position I didn't think we were going to be addressing this draft was WR but obviously that has changed. Can't wait for the WR drills, I want to see Hakeem Butler. This guy is a monster and is being coached up by Calvin Johnson.

    Has some problems with drops on easy catches but makes incredibly tough contested catches. That to me is a concentration problem which can be corrected.

    N'Keal Harry is the receiver I've coveted most so far. Butler is faster though, he could be just what they need to take heat off JuJu.

    Andre Dillard from Washington State looks like he is going to be a great LT.

    Would be an interesting consideration but we just have too many more pressing needs.

    RB Justice Hill - 4.40 with a 40" Vertical. He's making some money.

    I saw him more as a 3rd round pick but he could easily be a 2nd round guy now.

    Miles Sanders looking good today. He just killed it in the agility drill I'm watching. I'm really pulling for this kid.

    Back to back 4.5 flats in the 40. Not a blazing speed guy, but not to shabby either.

    Cashman at 281 has to be a typo.

    Bush the only one under 6'. Longer wingspan than Devin White though.

    I don't have nfl network but hopefully there's a way to watch the drills. Maybe NFL.com has it online the next day? Anyone know?

    I just mentioned Butler in the sleepers post, but that was before I knew he was so highly rated. Saw him watching a couple Iowa St games this year. The drops are a concern for me so I wouldn't go first 2 rounds, but that's me. NFL GMs will love his size though dude's a beast.

    But with as many screens as we run, I wonder if Parris Campbell OSU is on the radar? Anyone have a opinion on him?

    Hey all! Sorry I could not post in time for the beginning! Had work and got slammed early. Anyway though, some of my early takes from the combine as a whole and the defensive front seven weigh ins.



    Regarding the drills for todays Offensive Lineman and Running Backs... much of what I expected honestly. Justice Hill did surprise me a bit though. Flat 4.4 screams home run ability. Another winner of mine was Dalton Risner. A 7.69 three cone time for a man of his size is impressive. For a comparison, Quenton Nelson had a 7.65 three cone; just four hundredths of a second better. Chris Lindstrom also had a great combine; his 7.61 three cone being among my favorite overall marks for him. That being said though, for me, Dalton is moving up my Board for certain.



    Now, for the front seven weigh ins, oddly enough, I have Devin Bush as one of my big winners. Being under 6' is still not going to help. However, his arm length is what I was most concerned with heading in. Anything under 75' would have been devastating. Glad to see he is one inch better than Devin White. All that remains is his athletic testing. Should he score well there, he just might get pushed into my top 32.



    Brian Burns has to be the frontrunner though for the winners column for many. I was expecting him to be between 240-245. 249lbs. though?! Huge win already. If he can showcase his agility and put up great numbers the same, I just might move him up even more for my Post Combine Big Board; possibly even at number one pending on both Ed Oliver and Nick Bosa's combine.



    If not Brian Burns, oh most definitely Jachai Polite. Much of the same expectation weight wise for Polite. To be able to have on nearly 260 on a compact frame?! He just might be the most complete 3-4 OLB now currently do to this alone. A great combine would push him up further for me.




    Finally, Ed Oliver. I imagine no one was happier than him. I did believe he would enter at around 280. At 289lbs. is what caught my attention. For a comparison, Aaron Donald was just a shade under 6'1 and weighed 285lbs. Ed Oliver stands under a shade 6'2 and weighs 4 lbs more. A strong combine can catapault him to the top of my board for certain. Christian Wilkins also has to move up. If anything, should he test better than Quinenn Williams, I am slotting Wilkins above him. Yep, I said that.




    Plenty of others for certain but these are my most notable, initial takes. Thoughts?!

    Nearly 34 inches. 33 7/8 inches to be exact. I do not consider that a big loss by any means. His weight was my concern. Glad he won big in that department.

    Explosive receiver with big play ability. Sadly, he needs a Quarterback with a Bazooka as an arm to unleash his full potential. Deebo Samuel does not have these issues and can create something from nothing when he touches the ball.

    Forgot Terrill Hanks!! I did not have many concerns about him to begin with. However, after the weigh in, holy cow!!! :eek:



    33 4/8 inch arms and an 80 inch wingspan?! Sign me up! If he blows up the combine, no doubt he is a top 75 player for me. Heck, he just might be worth it in Round Two depending on how the draft breaks.

    Paris is a good receiver. Fast. Good build. Can run sweeps as well. Just not really a long ball threat. Had some drops but seemed to fix that problem. He would be a help but not my first choice. Did have some big games but others he didn't take over. Part of that was haskins though.:cool:

    I expected longer than that. The dude has some long looking arms. A guy that interviewed him said he has the longest arms he's seen. They look long on tape too.:cool:
