OH they cant play,thats why the are in the draft,ok got it.Some are PROJECTS.Most teams have those as future players.Thats WHY you have a STAFF no???? Sorry like in basketball you can't teach someone to be tall,and in football you can't teach someone how to go from a 5.0 40 to a 4.3,but you take them and see what you can mold,You expect every guy to start out of the box?? HAHA Even some round 1's fail.You're looking at round 1 guy's.I am, looking at players that will contribute 2 years from now,and once again in my view,although there are other factors(that you can TEACH) If a Db can't keep up with a 4.4 WR,then I will pass

Jenkins, Mcleod, Douglas, LeBlanc and Mills all run slower than that. That’s potentially our whole starting secondary!

Goal is set for the future no matter how we look at it going to need a pass rusher in near future same with DT.....Curry/Long both 30 plus on 1 year deals, Graham is already 30....DT both guys 29 going on 30 no real depth behind them maybe Hester takes a step forward but at best right now I see him maybe being a 3rd rotational piece 

Ot also.Tough to replace a pro bowler,but we need to get started

Interesting,still like my mock better though and IMO Tytus won't make it to 54(why he is not on my mock,but I know we like this guy alot)

Sidney Jones ran 4.47 vs Baker running 4.52. Jones couldn't even play all season one. But that’s the difference to you?

Jones was hurt right????? Did we rush him back? possibly.Can he get faster? I believe so

BTW we drafted him knowing this

FL you take all your DRC’s and I’ll take actual football players. I wonder which team would whoop up on whom? Track athletes or football players?

You gonna give me a year or 2? I'll beat you into the next zipcode if you do lol.Obviously I am thinking farther ahead than you

Ham gimme Usain Bolt,give me 2 years.I will teach him to catch and run patterns,GL finding a guy to cover him.All this talk to "we need speed at WR" but you don;t want guys that can run stride for stride with them? Cant follow this logic

Just now, cunninghamtheman said:

NBC mock practically stealing from me. I had Dline first, Sanders and Howard in the second.

If Howard lasts to 54 it would be a gift from a the football gods

Definitely farther ahead....for what sport is the question? I like speed. But I put a higher premium on football playing than track times.

No way do I see him off the board before then. Howard is gifted but still a project.

Just saying we had Treggs(no dig on you 58),but apparently he was unteachable,or had a limited learning curve.Doesn't mean you STOP looking at either WR or DB

Once AGAIN,you can;'t teach FAST,you CAN teach football skills,thats why we have a staff!!!!

John Ross broke the forty yard dash record. Baddest receiver to ever walk the Earth clearly!

I guess it's not sinking in,there  are fast guys that have a limited learning curve,there are others that DONT and those guys will be future stars,so stop looking???

IDk just trying to figure out what you want.You said "we need a speed guy at WR",then you go against that and say speed doesn't matter,so I dont understand this(same with DB's)

Just now, cunninghamtheman said:

Rather have Alshon Jeffrey that ran a 4.5 forty

we have him

I never said speed doesn’t matter. I’m just not taking track guys over football players.

If Gibson is so bad why do we still have him? maybe this year he goes away,but.......

The guys on that list are football players,or they would not be in the draft

Gibson is that bad. What has he done? I’ll wait for the answer. I can’t even picture him making the team.
