Chris Faulk is currently projected as returning to school to reaffirm his 1st round draft grade, so that wouldn't work either.
Thanks for the update on Chris Faulk I have wasted some time hoping he comes out and slips into our net.
Insights from the games this weekend:
I watched Hankins(if he is number 2 we lucked out missing on him) this weekend and I am off the bandwagon, he was manipulated left and right by a very average line and he contributed little to the victory. God knows we need something more dynamic.
The running back from Clemson Andre Ellington looked real good, a little small for a every down back but blessed with speed, quickness and lots of agility. Montee Ball also looked legit not nearly as quick but very productive.
I am trying to like Mingo and Montgomery(LSU) but they keep looking pedestrian and Reid the Safety did not stand out except for a blown coverage.
Did not get to see the Baylor game as it was not televised where I was located. Have a feeling Baylor has some good talent that I must of missed on defense.
Time to start fresh as all of my first glance prospects have disappointed or not available. I will check out Moore as everyone seems mesmerized by his talent and speed(A&M)
i agree Werner is moving up the ladder did not know he was already inside the top ten. I think he will fall out of the ten as some of the QB's are starting to hit their stride(not Barkley USC) and clearly some of the early teams picking will be desperate for QB's which will help us.
That win over Cleveland did nothing for my confidence of us this season and I think we will be picking in the 10 -16 range, hope I am off base on this notion but Doug Free and this Oline are less than average and Tony will be very sore the rest of the season start getting ready Mr Orton (then we will really see how porous this line can be) .
I look forward to your insights in the coming months as we wade through the cattle call of the pre draft.
