    I would love it but think Boykin and Zeigler should be switched. Zeigler didn't have a great seniorbowl

    I can see Boykin falling to the 3rd because of the fractured leg.

    The game isn't as important as the individual and team drills during the week IMO. Zeitler got solid reports during the week at practice. I think he's the top senior interior lineman; plus he went to Wisconsin.

    It takes 6 weeks to heal from a fracture. He will run at his pep day and will be a 2nd round pick.

    I guess you never had a fracture before. Then why don't you look it up.

    No, recovery from a fracture is different for everyone. Sure, there's an average "timetable," but now I guess you can predict the future?

    So he will be ready by training camp, and I don't see this dropping him out of the 2nd. Boykins in perfect health and will begin rehab with a trainer.

    I think we need more then one pass rusher. 4 new corners is too much. 2 or at the most 3. Mario Edwards should compete for a spot. But overall I'd be happy with ur moves

    I had 3 corners above, including Terrell Thomas as a FA. I agree that 4 is too much.

    Mario Edwards???? lol

    I mean butler lol. I think if a free agent corner is signed then one more drafted in early rounds is enough. This team wants scandrick to be used in some capacity. If they wanna draft another in later rounds I'm fine w that. But way too many needs to draft 2 corners that early and sign a veteran

    If you saw Boykin's tweet, he said he would be fine and ready to go in 3-4 weeks.

    No, I would not be happy. But I'm comfortable knowing that it will not happen.

    There is absolutely not one good reason to draft Ingram in the 1st round. Not one.

    Haven't made my mind up on Leonard Johnson, but i'm gonna pass on Boykin. Love the Zeitler pick, and I guess I wouldn't be too terribly upset with Ingram.
