    That is one big assumption.  He needs to come through for us to be a top 5.  We can only hope he does.  

    Which of the following did you mean?

     

    He needs to come through, for us to be a top 5.

     

    He needs to come through for us, to be a top 5.

     

    Subtle difference, different meanings.

    I can see great things from Cain if he is back at 100%

     

       Just my view from TigerTown   

         Cain is one reason Inman has not been resigned

    Exactly what I was trying to say, if  he returns to form.

    Somebody suggested that Cain might turn out to be better than DEVIN FUNCHESS. Have you ever heard such crazy hype? Better than FUNCHESS???  Better than the Devin Funchess? That is insane, impossible, and an insult to the possibility that Funchess could be pretty good, probably not great, but pretty good playing with Andrew Luck. I believe this poster was also implying, if you can believe it, that Cain could be better than Rogers, Fountain, Pascal, and even Marcus Freakin Johnson. If you're going to say that, it is the SAME thing as calling Cain a first ballot Hall of Famer. 

     

    Not even close. Did you watch Funchess play last year? I did, he wasn't that good. So it's not hard to believe that Cain can compete that level of play. Marcus Johnson had 6 receptions for 100 yards over 5 games before he was injured. So just as much hype there. Fountain...come on. Dropped his only target that was uncontested. 

     

    So Ya, its not hard to think Cain could take the 4th spot.

    Cain. The only 1st ballot HOF'er never to have played a snap in the pro game. Tickles me it does.

    Nobody said that, that's a ridiculous statement. Neither has Campbell, or any other rookie for that matter, just like last year, but people can have high hopes for Pete's sake.

    Well I tried to be diplomatic but saying that WR is in the same category as a QB need-wise is pretty freaking clueless.  Further, how many times do you have to hear Ballard say "you don't pass up a good player to draft for a need" before it sinks in?  It is entirely possible that "good player" is a WR.

     

     

    Diplomatic? Sure... so if we were in the top three and there was a stud QB you think we'd take him? No.

     

    Need is ALWAYS considered. 

     

    If anything we do need a QB considering we will have noone behind Luck. Meanwhile we have WRs galore.

    Strategically, it will be interesting.  Yes, there are phantom calls, but on the flip side, PI could also be called on so many more plays than it is.  Final two minutes of the half - throw it 50 yards down the field repeatedly.  They have to review every play.  Good chance you'll get something.

    You just nailed how most of next season will pay out.

     

    Hopefully booth doesn't look to call every ticky-tack PI.

    If Kelley performs at an All-Pro Level next year, he will likely set the market for centers, $14-$15 million a year IMO. If we could get him extended for $10-$11 mill per year now why wouldn't we??

    Especially if we could start the extension after next season. 

    Not with his significant injury history. He only played a full season his rookie year.

    as is your right.. 

     

    baker is dropping though. rotoworld and a few other sites reported the flags. and... i can tell you he absolutely has a rep at UGA. and it's very hard to get a rep at UGA.... lol.

     

    wanna maker a wager about greedy being available at 26?

    Read that again, I think you misunderstood lol

    i'd bet a good amount of cash that Williams is not there. 

     

    baker is dropping fast due to combine flags per several stories i've seen. had some very bad interviews with multiple teams. didn't have the best rep at UGA (I'm in ATL and hear all the Dwag crap constantly). not sure he would be a Ballard guy.

     

    even without the baker flags, i'd still take Tillery. the difference is ratings is very small. and he is absolutely the kind of kid you want in the locker room. i could easily see him coaching some day if not running for office lol. he was student body president at ND. and i love his position flexibility and rare height and radius for a DL.

    I disagree with none of that

    Jeffrey Simmons - DT: 6.67

    Greedy Williams - DB: 6.21

    Marquise Brown - WR: 6.18

    DeAndre Baker - DB: 6.15

    A.J Brown - WR: 6.08

    Jerry Tillery - DT: 6.03

    Devon Bush - ILB.  5.99

    Byron Murphy - DB: 5.95

    Jachai Polite - OLB: 5.91

     

     

     

     

    Of the players I named, I added their ratings above. If they are all available, I would pick one of the two DBs (Williams or Baker) over Simmons..

    from a pure ratings perspective, it's much more likely to a higher rated DT available than a S. Most mocks have Tillery, Lawrence, and Wilkens being available in that 25-32 space. All three of those are 6.0+ rated guys. I know NFL.com ratings aren't perfect, but they are a good guide, and better than most.

     

    In terms of S, there are zero Ss rated above 5.91 this year. Very meh class in terms of top talent. But a great class in terms of "good" depth. There are 15 guys in that same tier (5.5-5.99). I'd rather get a guy like Thornhill, CG-J, or Hooker who are 5.7-5.9 later. I like Thornhill better than the guys in the 5.9 range anyway. But those three can be taken late 2nd, maybe 3rd.

     

    CBs, a few top guys, but they will be gone. The ones available will be rated the same or below the DTs available.

    I'm sticking with what Ballard is shoveling.  He has said you win up front in this league, and I don't think he's done on either side yet.  Before yesterday, I WOULD have said DE or pass rushing LB.  Now, I say he goes DT or OT.  My gut says he'll have more value at DT since there are more of those top guys available.  The Colts scouts reportedly had interest in Dexter Lawrence at his pro day.  He is reported to maybe be available where the Colts pick.  That would be my favorite at this point.  If not him then Tillery from ND.

     

    All of a sudden this defense could be pretty darn good.

    Lawrence could make it to the second round for us. There may be better available, but after the first 9 or 10 are gone its a toss up. I do believe that many D line will be gone by that time, which leads me to picking up a top DB instead of a mid tier DL.
