    • Well I was trying to be polite initially, but I guess I’m going to have to be frank. I know your version of scouting consists of looking up a guy’s traditional stats on ESPN.com, whereas the rest of the collegiate and NFL world have moved on to PFF and PFO advanced analytics and grading.     And I know you wouldn’t know the difference between good mechanics and bad mechanics if Peyton Manning sat you down and explained the difference for an hour.   But these are merely 2 examples of scouting metrics that are more relevant than any traditional statistic.

    • My guess would be a starter like Walker or Moore.  I wouldn't want to give either up but that's what it might take if they really want a player.  I would want a solid starter.
    • I meant that if we had to spend, say, a 3rd round pick to get the same level of play as we get from Hooker, then I would think the team we're trading with would probably just want the 3rd round pick.  That's what happens when you trade a starter, the capital you get back in the trade has to be spent on finding another starter.    If someone we already have on the team, say, Odom (as you suggest), Willis, or even Tell emerged as a suitable replacement, then we could trade Hooker and could still keep our 3rd rounder as intended.
    • Senior Bowl practices are public. Anyone can go. So it’s not a leak.    I will say them actually wanting Herbert won’t shock me. There isn’t really any reason to do much research on him. He has been a starter for 4 years and his character is well known. Apparently Dodd’s followed him around at the SB also.
    • I might be wrong but I would bet the leaks aren't coming from Colts employees.  Most likely reporters and scouts seeing for themselves the apparent attention Love is receiving from the Colts.  I would suspect just a case of them putting two and two together.
