    Dexter Lawrence is not draft eligible either. Clemson has been killing it on D Line for recruiting and development for a few years now. IMO their best D-Lineman isn't even on that list.

    Yep, I missed that. Their defensive line is ridiculous; this list didn't include one of my top 2017 guys, Clelin Ferrell.

    I would trade our D line for Clemson's right now.

    Not for us, but....

    That's sick that QB Lamar Jackson reduced his already blazing 4.42 40 time down to 4.34.
    And he can throw the ball 85-95 yards in the air?

    His accuracy is horrific, and he is definitely a one read QB.

    Yeah, in a loaded QB class, marking big improvement in that area, he's down the list a bit.
    I was just talking about what the thread topic was discussing--pure athleticism.

    Understood. I have seen a lot of top half first round projections for him, and I just don't get it.

    Ed Oliver is a stud... earliest he'll be eligible is the 2019 draft, sheesh.

    I played football w/ his dad...The kid has got the genes.....From what I'm hearing 4.5 speed...Some teams may see Joey Bosa. Heard that's what Meyers wanted to do w/ him@ Ohio St. I think he's still gonna keep growing like his dad. His dad didn't really fit out until he was 25. Think freakish JJ Watt. Plus I hear he loves the weight room.;)

    Porter is a Utah kid right?

    I was talking to former NFL LB Ricky Brown 3 years ago, who was a GA at USC then, and he couldn't stop talking about Porter Gustin, Cameron Smith, and Osa Masina (who got into some legal issues). He was extremely high on Gustin.

    I think Gustin could be that SAM/3rd down End that some of us have been talking about the last few years, the famous "Otto" position.

    Tony Brown would be an elite corner in college and in the NFL, but he has issues. This guy should have started ahead of Marlon Humphrey, but he couldn't put it together. Just bizarre.

    Honestly...His Dad....John was my high school QB. He played ball @ Wyoming. John was about 6'6 played hoops. Could have played college ball in either sport. Good Athlete....And his mom was a great hoops player here in Meridian, Idaho...too and she was like 6'1. So I really don't think he's done growing.

    And yeah...I think John settled down in Utah finally. I'm better friends w/ his sisters husband....and he's been the one giving me all the updates. Pays to have friends in low places. And from all the pics I've seen Porter lives in the weight room. He's gonna get bigger and fill out eventually...hence why I'm thinking more in the lines of JJ Watt.

    Gustin wakes up every day at 3:30 a.m. just so he can guzzle down a protein shake before going back to sleep for a few more winks. Then, he gets up again at 4:30 a.m. to get his body right for dawn workouts. That dedication has certainly paid off. The 6’5” Gustin, who arrived at USC weighing around 235 pounds, is up to 260. He can bench press 475 pounds and squat 575. His vertical jump is 35 inches and Lewis told me the Utah native runs the 40 at about 4.6. He’s coming off a strong 2016 season when he led USC with 13 tackles for loss and ranked second on the team with 68 tackles. Lewis said the biggest area where Gustin has made gains this off-season is increasing his flexibility, which only figures to make the guy an even bigger force rushing the passer this season. Better still for the Trojans, Gustin’s zeal for the weight room and hanging around after his workout to do extra core work and flexibility has carried over to teammates, Lewis says.

    I would love to draft the USC linebacker or the DT from Clemson Christian Wilkins.

    Expect rumors of Gustin being a roider to come out before the draft. Same thing happened to Matthews, Cushing and others.
