    The feeling on #Alabama DE/LB Courtney Upshaw, especially following pro-day, hasn't been great. Stiffness & limited fluidity hurting him.

    If the best OLB/pass rusher was Upshaw at the Dallas pick, I would go OG or Barron.

    Those times are pretty slow. Any chance he falls down to the second round?

    Hmmm, stiffness is definitely not a good thing. I knew he was stiff but not prohibitively so. I still like Upshaw and feel he's being over-analyzed, but I would only take him in a trade down.

    He still could be. We will find out in 28 days. Belicheck and Rex both like him and they both know a little something about defense.
