Why? What difference does it make? No one cared when the stuff from Tennessee was brought up about Manning over a decade ago. As long as they don't do it in the pros and get suspended for it, who really cares what these guys did in college?
I don't have a problem with Green. I think he will see the field sooner than many on here think. I thought we would come out of this draft with a S. I felt like we needed to. I said before the draftt I thought S was an underrated group. We worked out enough Safties I trust Pagano and Co.got it right.
I think Clark has a very high ceiling too. He was great value in the 3rd. I think he could play either T spot eventually. He's not ready right now. I just don't get the inderstand the pick. We signed Castonzo to a big contract. Reitz was ranked in the top 15 by PFF and we supposedly love Good.
All that being said we draftt Clark with Jenkins and Fackrell on the board. Keep in mind our only 3 OLB's are all over 30. I would have taken Jenkins. He's ready to contribute now. I think he's underrated as a pash rusher and sets a strong edge.
Morrison is the pick I really have a problem with. Yes I have seen him play. They guys knees are shot. He's had 2 surgeries already. He is undersized, struggles in space, lacks strength,vision and is a liability in coverage. I did not see anyone who had him going early day 3. The 6-7 round is where most projected. He makes a huge hit once in a while and plays with an attitude.
There were a lot more talented players there at 125 without the injury history. I have never been a fan of drafting a player who couldn't stay healthy in college.
If we wanted to gamble Robinson CB from LSU was the perfect gamble.The kid is a day 2 talent that slide because of off the field problems. He is a long atheltic corner with a ton of talent who excels in press coverage. If this kid matures and gets his off the field issues squared away he could be a #1 CB for someone. I think Robinson maturing is more likely than Morrison suddenly staying healthy.
If we wanted a safer pick Booker/Dixon were both there. I think Booker will end up being the second best back in this draft. Judon was their along with a few other guys. I don't see the value in Morrison at 125. We probably could have got him in the 7th with his injury history and off field issues.
Definitely, my grandfather lived in Baltimore for a while and grew up watching him. He still pulled for Indy but always referred to them as Baltimore. I wasn't allowed to say the name Irsay in my house. The game sure has changed. I wish I could go back in time when players didn't get flagged for breathing on a player and defenses were actually feared by offenses.
