11 posts in this topic

i really hope we get dion jordan he is athletic and has alot of muscle, that guy can play. he plays the run very very good and can pass rush like a mother trucker.stephan taylor sort of reminds me of jones drew. i think we should get jordan in the first and maybe pick up taylor later

Like them both but would not touch Jordan in the first, just not enough production for me, seems a project player BUT with a good upside, Personally I just go production over potential production. Taylor I like but RB is not a need

Not sure about Jordan in a 3-4.

His ideal position is a 34 OLB and he plays in a 34 right now. Numbers aren't as good as they could have been because he dropped into coverage a lot more this year.

I think the other thing that hurt Jordan this year is he banged up a shoulder and missed some games and played hurt in other games.    Shoulder is not a good injury to play through.

 

As for Taylor....   we need to see how he tests at the Combine.    No one at Stanford is quite sure what kind of athlete he is.   The Vick Ballard comparison is probably pretty good, though, he's probably a bit smaller.

 

But here is what Taylor is, no matter what kind of athlete.   He's got a huge heart.   And he good at almost everything.   

 

He makes few mistakes.   He can block as a pass protector.   He can catch out of the backfield.   He can run between the tackles better than most backs his size.   The question is...  how much can he run **outside** the tackles.   Not very much is the likely answer.      He may not be an eventual starter in the NFL,  but he should be a quality back-up at the worst.

I like Stanfords OLB Trent Murphy in the third round as well. This guy has been a force all year for Stanford

We have a Big Need at RB.

After 4 years D Brown is a Bust.

Dion Jordan at #1 is a good pick. We Must get a Pass Rusher somewhere.

Or Xavier Rhodes.

    • But you don't dispute what I said.  Philbin is a variable without conclusive information thrown into the mix.  Everyone also thought he'd be an excellent head coach based on his past history for Miami, but in the end, that was the opposite of what happened.  Plus, in roughly 6-7 weeks of limited practice, that's a tall order for any coach to dramatically improve something so awful.     It is fine to be optimistic.  I am not saying we can't be better, I am asking how keeping 4 of 5 players who COLLECTIVELY were lousy last year and adding only a rookie who may be great or could be less than that as none of us have any idea (going into training camp everyone "assumed" Clowney would be a monster.. he hasn't been.... and there are plenty of other examples of first rounders not ready for prime time.  I hope Kelly is awesome as a former College Center, I love the position.  But let's pump the breaks on making him All Pro as many have acted like it's a given he will be.  He hadn't had a single live ammo practice in pads to this point.     What I stated (and you pretty much restated) were all true.  Why dispute the truth? Start with that, then make a case for why it will be better.  To your credit you made that attempt, but it's all hopeful thinking going forward, not factual analysis looking back; 
    • Well, let me help you:    fact fakt/ noun   a thing that is indisputably the case. "she lacks political experience—a fact that becomes clear when she appears in public" synonyms: reality, actuality, certainty; More         used in discussing the significance of something that is the case. noun: the fact that "the real problem facing them is the fact that their funds are being cut" a piece of information used as evidence or as part of a report or news article. synonyms: detail, piece of information, particular, item, specific, element, point, factor, feature,characteristic, ingredient, circumstance, aspect, facet;  information "every fact was double-checked"   Since that applies to what I said, you've now been educated.  
    • yup...they are over 50 miniature donkeys (with a couple full size). Iy's a great farm with national forest on part of it that feels like yellowstone when you go back in their!
    • Yeah, I know it's just a "tweaked" ankle but that still doesn't bode well for a guy with a history of injuries. Especially being an UDFA that needs every oppurtunity he can get to make the team.
