    Yea it wasn't rader. I think Bucky was later as well. Maybe it was CSW (brit) and McGee (I think that was his name) but I see he isn't on the roster anymore so there's that lol

    Bucky could be an option. Freak athlete they say. Former qb. 4.57 at 6-6 257. Big vert. Maybe a year with Daniels has helped. :cool:

    Bucky was a part of at least 1 preseason game. I remember a excellent blocking effort on a running play. As far as Rader and CSW.....they have basically no shot at making the roster. The search is in for number 3 and quite possibly number 2 as well.

    Heard some of it as well. I also heard him talking about Hollins and didn't have much of anything positive to say:hmm:

    I'm going to mention this guy again as I have in the past. He's likely now a late round pick/UDFA.

    Koron Crump, LB, Arizona St

    He's a bit of a hybrid ILB/OLB.

    After 2 years of JUCO, as a "JR" he had 9 sacks and a pick.

    In hindsight, the most notable game of his college career was against Washington state in 2016. This game film is on YouTube. He had 3 sacks in the game. After an unimpressive first half, he woke up in the second half. He had 1 sack blitzing from the inside and 2 from beating the LT.

    Who was the LT of Washington State in 2016?

    None other than 1st round lock and probably the single best pass protecting Tackle in this year's draft, Andre Dillard.

    Krump went into his senior season in 2017 and accumulated 4 sacks in his first 2 games before tearing his ACL. He returned in 2018 but was not fully healthy yet and combined with a defensive scheme change he decided to leave the team and focus on preparing for the draft.

    Krump played at 6'3 225 which is small. He showed up to the ASU pro day in late March at 215. While I can't find much data on all his numbers, 24/7 sports had him running in the 4.40s.

    He has NFL speed but lacks the size. He had massive production as a freshman and was off to a blazing start as a sophomore before missing the rest of the season. He proved he could perform vs an elite college Tackle.

    I would have to think this has to be worth a late round flier/priority UDFA.

    Yes definitely a guy who has fallen off the map. Definitely a 7th or high priority UDFA risk worth taking.

    If we do not get Bush, I am really warming to Cashman and Germain Pratt. Not sure Pratt would be there 3a, but both are intriguing. The kid from WVU looks interesting. I would not be surprised to see 3 to 4 D chosen with our first 5 picks.

    Steelers hosted wisconsin LB Andrew Van Ginkel wednesday, and worked out LSU running back Nick Brossette their at least showing interest in van ginkle who has good size 6-4 240....

    So, I was going to mention Van Ginkel. I watched a few of his games recently. I have doubts about whether he has, or ever will have, the power to be an NFL edge. However, I see the athleticism and instincts that suggest that he can make the Timmons switch from college edge to NFL LB. He’s clearly going to be a late round pick or UDFA, and I’d be happy to see him here.

    I would probably take Pratt in the second round, if they don't get a ILB in the first round.
