    All I know after watching Saturday's games is that I want Maryland's RB Anthony McFarland. Dude killed it today and came back after an injury. Too bad he's a freshman I believe.....

    Ouch :lollmao:

    Wish I could have gone, would have been cool to see them play at Yankee Stadium.

    @turtle he's definitely a rd 1 target for me but, I'm a homer :lolol:

    Watch some tape of him when you can, would be interested in seeing what you think of him. I don't see him being anything less than rd 2 for sure.

    Only one game I watched but he didn't look like a first round guy to me, however the safety that had 2 picks looked pretty darn good. #11 I do believe

    Alohi Gilman, exciting player but won't be entering the draft. Someone to keep an eye on.

    Also #94 from cuse looked good, he was getting off the ball super fast I kept waiting for the off side flag.

    Anyone watch the USC/ND game last night? Any thoughts on Cam Smith, I was high on him last season as a late rounder but I see he dropped like 20-30lbs this year. I only saw the last bit and he made a couple plays but didn't see much of the game.

    C.J. Mosley, Baltimore Ravens! Let’s see if Baltimore can retain him, if not, I’d pay him in an instant.

    One of the few times I’d advocate paying a free agent over drafting a guy.

    Kiss Devin White goodbye.


    Due to the performances of players such as Darius Leonard, Fred Warner and Leighton Vander Esch, look for his value to soar. If he has a stellar combine, he is a top 10 lock easily.


    Oddly enough, I can see the likes of Devin Bush being an option. Undersized? For certain. That has not stopped Tomlin though. Doubt it would now.

    I have read TJ Edwards is inside and outside but as I sit here and watch him make play after play and then a awesome int I would add him to the list. Hmmmm a LB named TJ from Wisconsin wonder if they ever panned out in the NFL?????? Lol.

    Edwards is a good one. Just not fast. I hope we build on the kid in house. Matt thlmas. He's got speed but we dropped the ball on developing him. :cool:

    That looks to be the knock on him I am reading 4.8 40 but what I saw yesterday didn't show it. He looked like he played faster and was always around the ball. That is one thing I want to focus more on this year is guys that always are around the ball. Thomas might be good but we are gonna need more that him, we have to draft one and TJ is now on my like list. So is Cam Smith, Josh Allen, Mack Wilson, Germaine Pratt, Devin Bush, Ta'von Coney, Joe Bachie, Khalil Hodge, Jordan Kunaszky and Evan Weaver. Some of these guys are under class men and some are inside and outside guys some have good coverage skills, some have speed concerns but all are guys I will be watching for sure. Oh course it is still very early so I am not limited to these guys this is just a start for me. When bowl season rolls around that is when I start getting into draft mode.

    I hope we don’t shy away from a guy like TJ Edwards just because he runs a 4.8. I know they love the athletic freaks on defense (with mixed results) but you can make up a lot of that 40 time with good old fashioned know-how.

    Haven’t gotten into any draft prep yet but I’ll really check out Edwards. Seems like just what we need.

    I concur about edwards. I talked on here about him when we drafted watt. He produces. I still like fort and what he does, putting a guy like Edwards next to him may do the trick. I still think Matthew Thomas should have gotten playing time. With a different set of coaches he would have. :cool:

    They use to know how to draft LB's, They really don't know how to evaluate db's though.

    I just saw the perfect Steeler ILB (Clemson #11 Isaiah Simmons) add 15-20
    pounds to his frame will fit perfectly for the PGH Steelers. Shazier like only taller.

    I was really trying to focus on Conley as Blast talked about him awhile back and he wasn't bad but he didn't pop off the TV at me like some of these other guys I watched this week. Some of that could be the level of talent he was playing against vs the other guys I watched(Clemson is a much better team) so I am not saying anything bad of him.

    I believe he is only a true sophmore? Not sure if he is eligible to be drafted?
