    Sorry if I didn’t read through all this but David Moore just said he was our highest rated D guy on the board and 4th overall on their board. Ahead of DBs

    lol give me a break. No one knows the situation or if anyone in his family was high risk or how this was going to effect the sports world.. Slater did the same thing.

    ITs well known that most people used the Covid OPT out as a way to preserve their body for the NFL. Many guys did it. Who the hell wants to play and get hurt and kill their stock in the draft?

    Yeah that's insane. The least of my concerns are why he sat out or opted out. Hell I don't see why more didn't do it. Especially if you were projected to be a 1st round pick.

    Football.. college and the pros went much better than I expected. I thought they'd be cancelled by week 3.

    Devin White was the comparison made by many prior to the draft.

    I never thought for one second that they would cancel anything once they started. Postpone maybe.. but pull up stakes? Hell naw.. not with the amount of TV money on the table. Players opting out all had their reasons and you have to respect their right to do so. That said, I personally didn't like it overall because corny as it may sound, you will never get that year of playing college ball back and you can all but guarantee that when their playing days are done, most of the guys who did it just to preserve their bodies or draft status will regret it. Even if they make a zillion dollars in the pros.. They will spend the rest of their lives wishing they had played that last year of college ball. But I may just be seeing things through the lens of an old dude who quit football in college too soon.. :)

    I have to say i warmed up to this pick. This was best case scenario after the Corners were gone.

    Additionally, imo, the best CB in the draft is still on the board. I'd love it if we can use the extra pick on Adebo.

    helluva pick and a pleasant surprise.
    didn't really hear any buzz leading up to the draft that we liked him.

    then yesterday someone on here posted a comment from jane slater about dont rule out parsons @10...and then the heavens opened and gave us a gift from mt. nittny.

    It isnt that simple, for players who had a good year in 2019 , opting out of 20 is a smart move.
    Avoids injurys, or not having a good year, both of which would lower their draft status.
    Also it was about them not wanting to bring covid home to family, not just their own personal safety.
    One guy said he did it so his mother could stay home instead of working, and now he was picked in the first round, and is a instant millionaire.

    Please...
    These linebacker evaluators hopefully are old enough to have watched Lawrence Taylor play. That was the LB freak.
    But this is how the resident Parsons family experts are hyping him up here.

    Show me how much he impacts team wins and losses on "this" roster and then get back to me when Tyron gets hurt, Collins or both and Dak is running for his life or on his back.

    But yeah...
