What's the story with Cash? I thought he was at least a 3rd round pick. I hope we get Marshall though.

There are several Safeties left that seemed like they would go higher, but Cash really has taken the cliff dive though

I'd like to see Cowser from Southern Utah....   OLB

 

Cajuste from Stanford.....    TE

 

Martin Koprich smallish RB from the midwest (small school) who the Colts had a visit with.

 

OR....

 

Jhurrell Pressley,  another smallish RB from New Mexico.

 

Those guys would interest me....     I'm sure there are others,   but off the top of my head,  they'd work....

Now is the time to draft David Perkins, that bend and speed is so ridiculous. Need an edge rusher!

I'm scared because the bears were at that pro day when we scouted Perkins. Hope they don't take him.

My late round WR-crush is on the board - Keyarris Garrett. We had him as one of our 30 visits.

Trevor Bates. We worked him out before the draft. We probably could have gotten him as a UFA but now we don't have to wonder.

In Bates they saw a more toned athlete than Maine fans saw in past years. He’s spent the past three months in Tampa, Florida, working out with coaches and 20 other draft hopefuls, gaining speed, losing a little weight (down to 244 from 250 on his 6-foot-2 frame) and working on the footwork necessary to play linebacker in the NFL.

The Colts’ scout kept him after the regular drills for a lengthy session aimed at showing Bates’ speed and agility. That was where Bates shined.

 I hate 7th Rounders...such throw away picks.  The draft is one round too long in my opinion.  Trevor Bates from Maine could have probably been signed after the draft as an undrafted free agent.

Other teams were interested. You never know where he'll decide to go. Now we'll have him signed for a while and he won't be able to go elsewhere. That's all that 7th rounders are.

Udfa get get to choose where they go. They can look at your roster and say I don't think I can make it or they may want to go to a regional team (maybe NE) to be closer to home or closer to his family home wherever that is. Now he is locked in and ours.

Did we stump the truck with him. No info or picture on him on NFL network. Lol

 

The closest thing to Trevor Bates that is scary I can think of is the Bates' motel. :)

 

Otherwise, I have no clue about his pass rush skills.

Who can play? I'm confused. I quoted you two times. First was, You Said "draft a pass rusher." I quipped "it's the 7th round." Just screwing with ya on that one. 

 

Second, i was genuinely interested in what yoy knew about the LB. I am still curious about the pick. What do you know about him?

I admit I know little about him.  But I'm relieved to see you are happy about the pick since you have been following the pass rushers in this class pretty close.  Just watched some of his highlights and he came off as pretty impressive.  Hopefully, he has the goods to translate his skills to the next level.  Quite a step up for him in competition.

This looks a lot like the 2008 draft of Polian's, plenty of OL.

 

Hopefully it has better end results, outside Ryan Kelly.

    • I agree with your logic.  But it is the same logic some people are using for the converse.  We have young receivers and no Funchess, so no one is open.
    • Not trying to start an argument. I'm only pointing out that you are essentially drawing a conclusion based on assumptions.   1) ........receivers are fast 2) ........QB makes few attempts 3).........the box is stacked   So, Brissett must be missing open receivers downfield.   I'm sure he misses some. But how many compared to other QBs?  ....  We don't really know.         
    • SO your contention is that teams leave Ebron open because of his drops?
    • No more than someone being convicted and imprisoned when it's obvious the police force engaged in improper procedure.   I guess the issue here is that I can see the world outside my own head better than a lot of people.  And I know a little more about physics than the average bear, simply from boredom clicks that turned into self directed study sessions.    The idea that the balls were below PSI because the air was cold and cold air is denser and reduces air pressure, makes a lot more sense to me than some nefarious conspiracy, especially because the Colts' balls were also just barely under PSI, and we all know Andrew Luck doesn't cheat.   The way I had it explained to me is the Patriots keep their balls at the low end of the allowed PSI limit at room temperature.  Throw in a super cold January evening that was way below room temperature and the nefarious becomes the inevitable.  That's why the Colts' balls were also low, because air cold enough to shrink a Patriots ball will shrink a Colts ball too.    The reason that the Colts' balls had higher PSI is that they started higher -- Colts don't push the lower edge of the PSI limit.  Also the Colts balls were tested later, after things had a chance to warm up and normalize   If it was Manning or Luck being accused none of us would have been satisfied with the standard of "proof" on display.    there might just barely be enough actual evidence to get the equipment people themselves on something, if you completely ignore the way temperature affects air pressure, but the evidence tying any of that directly back to Brady is practically nonexistent.   They would have had a better reason to suspend either of Robert Kraft or Bill Belichick than Tom Brady.  Both of them have more authority over the equipment personnel than the starting QB does and at least you could get them on the commander clause. '   All they have on Brady is that he destroyed his phone after they said they didn't want it and before they changed their minds and decided they did
    • I was going to respond to each point but it's not really worth it so I will just say, the fact that he was suspended and fined was not proof enough for you?
