    Man... DLAW looks like he is running on all cylinders in these drills. He looks to be wanting 20+ sacks this time. I think he is going to be devastating this year.

    Sept 9th --> Cam... be afraid... be very afraid.

    But Gregory looks like he has a long way to go to be in any form for actual game play. Looks in great shape though...

    But DLAW is on a whole other level this year compared to last think. The big guy is looking really quick.

    I thought the top 5 guys in order were
    1. Lawrence
    2. Taco
    3. Crawford
    4. Armstrong
    5. Price

    Gregory smooth but running at half speed. Not exactly the most informative training camp live video

    Yeah Armstrong definitely looked good as well.

    But, being a drill like that, obviously doesn't tell the whole story. But, DLAW looked smooth, powerful, and awesome balance. He wants to get paid! You can tell.

    He did look preseason game 1 as if he is in prime of his career, and consistently an impact guy, and not a one year wonder at all - as long as he can stay injury free and away from suspensions - we likely will need to pay him as our war daddy.....

    Yeah, I know Gregory is gonna be a mainstay for our D, but this isn't fun :) :

    The phenom looks wobbly. Needs to get those stabilizer muscles in shape -- balance, agility -- will all soon follow. Andrew Luck has been out of the game almost as long as Gregory.

    He will be fine. Stud.

    Indeed, Zero. I need to reign in my expectations. But half this board will put me on ignore if he has a coming out party this year. I expect his full potential in 2019-20 onwards. Still, he has the elite ceiling to be amazing this season. I am not scared to eat a **** sandwich if he looks bad, either. Look at the progress JSmith is showing this year from last, after missing considerable time, himself. Both players with potential elite-ceilings. Just swayed from their profession and development, albeit for completely different reasons.

    Lawrence was a monster last year w Crawford and taco opposite. This is taco second year and could make the leap with doubles on dlaw. Also what can help is Gregory back. This dline has depth and can help each other out. Taco crawford Randy can help Lawrence have more opportunities...hopefully

    DLaw at a second round pick, even at a trade up, is a home run. Kudos to our much-maligned front office. What an exceptional pick. Imagine this cat playing for a rival/other team at a second round grab.

    Home run.

    He's getting extended here in Big D. I predict a larger season than last; as he plays with heart, the motivation to destroy, violence, technique, youth (true age-26 season)... and a second contract and proof that he deserves real dollars -- nothing shows a reason for drop off from play/decline from his already elite showing from last year... including the latter listed. I expect a jump in production this year. A better year than last. 1st Team All-Pro.

    We just saw what he can do at age-25, we still have 4 years of elite left edge play in him. Pass, run-defending, he does it all at a high level. Elite level, now.

    He is eating the franchise tag, not complaining nor sitting out. He's a Cowboy.

    Thanks for the content, Zero. Woot!

    hope DLaw stays in our price range.
    I REALLY like this DE group.
    excited about Taco...and hoping Tapper can stay healthy.
    Dorance Armstrong looks like the real deal.
    Crawford is like duct-tape...handles his business.
    Randy Gregory will get there soon enuff.
    This is a deep DE group.

    Too many back surgeries to attach themselves long term. Franchise as long as they can.

    Is it me or has Amber Garcia taken major step forward to knowing what she is talking about?

    He'll likely sit out if franchised again. He's getting a 4-5 year deal if he repeats last year's performance, and we would be ******* idiots not to offer it to him.

    You ride a position like RB to the ground. Franchise for a couple years, then move on. Every indication is that Tank has progressed from his back injuries. Your conjecture is just as valid as mine.

    If Zeke were to sit out, at say, 27, due to a second franchise, fine, we will find a back who can give us 1,500 yds behind this OL. Not so easy to replace those numbers TankLaw put up at edge.
