  1. Tidbits from Bill Polian. Bill thinks like DC in that we will be taking Corey Davis at 14. Bill compares Corey to WR John Taylor. Bill also said he believes that 40 defensive backs will be taken in this years draft. He stated that although this is a good draft for CB's he believes this is the best draft for TE's in 20 years. As far as Myles Garrett is concerned Bill pointed out that two thirds of his career sacks were against teams that were not in the SEC. Bill has a category called (if players). These are players that could be good "if" they can overcome their history of injuries or "if" they can stay out of trouble and etc. According to Bill there are 12 "if" players listed in the first round. The most he as ever seen in his career. The second round has much less "If" players in it. For what its worth.
  2. No doubt in my mind!
  3. Yes Norman plays him well. There is a CB in the draft by the name of Channing Stribling who played at Michigan this year with Jourdan Lewis. Stribling probably won't be drafted until the 5th round this year because of his combine results but all he does is defend passes. He is compared to Norman.
  4. Brian Westbrook likes Cook at pick 14 if he is still on the board.
  5. 4th ranked Defensive Tackle in the draft Caleb Brantley arrested for battery (striking a woman) on April 13th. Another one falls in the draft.
  6. One problem with the NFL draft not occurring until five months after the regular college football season ends is critics have 150 days to tear down top draft prospects. Myles Garrett is universally regarded as the player the Browns should take with the first pick of the draft on April 27, but if they listen to Warren Sapp — who had a Hall of Fame career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders — they’ll steer clear. "I don’t see it from this kid,” Sapp told Adam Schefter of ESPN on April 23. "I see the splash plays; everybody gets those. Where’s the game he took over? Where? Any defensive lineman who’s the No. 1 pick, you turn up and you say, ‘There it is!’ This kid, no, I don’t. "I’m a pretty plain and frank guy, and I watch the tape and he disappears. I watch the tape, and he absolutely disappears.” Sapp isn’t the first to pronounce Garrett guilty of taking plays off. When Sapp was asked if Garrett was the best player in the draft he stated "No No No", not even close.
  7. Jabrill Peppers tested positive for a diluted sample at the combine. Expect him to fall to the second round per ESPN
  8. In this week’s Monday Morning Quarterback column for TheMMQB.com, Peter King quotes Mike Mayock of NFL Network as saying that there is "more medical concern with high draft picks than I’ve ever seen in a draft before.” One of those picks is Western Michigan wide receiver Corey Davis. Davis is at the top of the list of wide receivers available for selection this year, but ankle surgery at the start of the offseason kept him from working out for teams over the course of the pre-draft process. Davis said at the Scouting Combine in early March that he was confident he would be "good by minicamp” and he offered another update recently. Davis told Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com that he expects to be 100 percent in a "few weeks,” which would allow him to get some work in with his new team ahead of training camp this summer. We’ll find out how much the injury impacted Davis’ draft standing later this week. He visited with the Ravens, Browns, Eagles and Titans, all of whom are thought to be good bets to add a receiver before the draft is out.
  9. I don't want to see Foster or Cook in a Redskins uniform or O.J.Howard in a Giants uniform.
  10. Its hard to look at some things objectively when you are a fan. The thing about Elliot that you have to tip your hat to is during that three game playoff run to the National Championship everyone knew that Ohio State was going to run Elliot down their throats and they did but no one could stop him. That's a gamer in my mind. Whether he plays for Dallas now or not. Ohio States offensive line was terrible that year too until about the last five games of the season. Taylor Decker was the only good linemen they had at the start of the season. The rest of them grew into their positions before the season was over. Hey, Wentz is nothing to sneeze at. Right? Now lets take a look at how RB Dalvin Cook did against his two toughest opponents last year. National Champion Clemson 19 attempts for 169 yards rushing and 4 TD's. Then we have Michigan in the Orange Bowl. Michigan had the second best defense in the country last year and Cook had 20 attempts for 145 yards rushing and a TD.

  12. To get Fournette I think you have to move to at least 8 so it would take our 2nd and we get there 6th I know that I'm an old geezer but I value talent a little differently than some of you guys. I personally believe that Fournette is a 14 pick in the draft. Sure some teams will reach for him higher but in my opinion he is a 14 pick. Last year I thought that Elliot was a top ten pick. I always base my opinion at the very end on how these guys do against their toughest competition. Elliot played some of his best games against his toughest competition. In fact he had three straight playoff 200 yard rushing games on his way to a National Championship. In other words, Elliot is a gamer. Now, Fournette has just as many great stats as Elliot did, maybe more in fact but he has 1 receiving TD in three years and if you look at his stats this year against his two toughest opponents (Alabama SEC West winner) 17 attempts for 35 rushing yards and (Florida SEC East winner) 12 attempts and 40 rushing yards you can tell that he didn't rise to the occasion in either of those games. A lot of his stats were against lesser talented teams. I still think he is a great running back and I certainly wouldn't turn him down but I see him as a tier below Elliot at the present time. Like I said, pick 14 is just about right for him. Well like I said a RB like Zeke is a once a decade thing,but you can't whine for a decade waiting,you have to take the best RB you can find and I believe for all the points I laid you,and as much as I wanted a CB in 1/2 I just don;t think thats the way we are going if you look at the press releases.We moved up for Zeke last year.the Wentz trade presented itself so we lost him,but IMO the philosophy hasn't changed and I believe we go get Fournette this year having our franchise QB and 2 nice WR's already in place I don't care what you say GBFL, I'm not taking Stine off my mock at pick 14. So there!

  14. Yeah, Howie wouldn't trade up. Joe wouldn't let him. I actually feel bad for you having to play on the Browns team. LMAO
  15. Sorry about the spelling of your name stine, When I saw that you were still on the board at pick 14 I last my mind.
