Yep. Thanks Risen. I really enjoyed it. I hope we can do one of these again soon.
I to want to thank Risen, it felt good to come on the board and just talk football. I loved it, maybe we can do another one closer to the draft...
Yeah, thanks to everyone who participated. They are always fun.
One thing I learned from this draft was that safety is not as deep as I thought and there are a lot of safety needy teams. I think if we do not really feel comfortable at the safety position then we will have to grab one in the 1st or 2nd. If Warmack or Cooper are there at 18 then it pretty much means that it has to be done in the 2nd. To me worthy staters from Day 1 (if Johnson is not being counted on) Vaccaro, Reid, Wilcox, Thomas (Fresno) and Swearinger, or Cyprien. The other safeties will be competition players that could potentially win the job but could be just special teamers.
Defensive line, Running Back, Receiver are deep. OL to me seems to be this year flavor of the draft. First round may generate up to 5 to 6 tackles and 2 guards, so OL will not be as deep only until the 4th round. IMO
With that said, I can see us going. (BPA at their respective positions)
That is just my opinion after going through the mock today, and to be honest this is my first year to ever participate. I always done them on my own but never felt as I knew enough to join.
Just curious, have you watched much game footage of Pugh?
Perfectly said. A terrific job. I now know a lot more than I did before this started. It was a lot of fun and you made it that way. Apaprently you weren't happy with us in round three :laugh2: as we quibbled about the Cowboy's pick, but we had it coming.
I watched the wva game and some senior bowl stuff. I'll admit I've watched a lot more of some other players.
He seems to be a guy that offensive line coaches (technique ) like more than scouts (size speed power length). From what I've seen he might be a bit like Konz.
I don't see any similarity to Konz who had much better anchor strength.
Cornelius Washington (6-4, 265) was powering through Pugh in the Senior Bowl driving him straight back into the QB. If Cory Proctor ever blocked Vince Wilfork, it would look similar to Pugh blocking Washington.
If Washington at 265 lbs can jack him up, I can only imagine what NFL defensive tackles would do to him at Guard.
Just curious because I don't know. Was this during the game or during 1 on 1 drills?
