Hmmmmm.......9th pick?  That would make a definite difference in who you get.  My thought on that is there is someone they are targeting in that "top tier".  Wonder who it is?  Would a guy like Hooker still be there?  I said the other day on tape he reminded me of Ed Reed, and then watching the Combine I heard them say the same thing!

I think it is reasonable to assume that getting kicked out of the combine is the kiss of death.

 

Run. Run far away from that knucklehead.

 

I think the rumor is bogus anyway. The person reporting the story called Chris Ballard, "John Ballard". He has no clue what he is even making up.

LOL. True.

 

The fans would pack Chris's bags for him, drive him to the airport, and give him a one-way ticket back to Kansas City,

Cardinals look to have the first deal in place this FA period with Gresham, a 4 year deal in place it looks like.

The team is going to have to be active in FA. They had too many holes and have done nothing to keep their own FA's, it appears. I really wanted to keep Doyle and I'd love to keep Butler too but I don't think either one will  be back now.

Texans discussing a deal with Ricky Wagner. 

Aj Bouye talking with eagles 

Colts and redskins both contacted the Bengals about the 9th pick at the combine. 

That one came from a person with 60 followers on twitter. Don't fall for it. It's fake.

I'd have to see how it turned out. If he becomes a hall of famer for us then I could forgive, but other than that I agree.

Truth. Adams even tweeted a good bye message of sorts.

Well if we are going to be "extremely competitive" for Bouye we will see just how much we can persuade a top free agent to come here.

 

According to some people on this forum, playing with Andrew Luck is enough to get free agents to come here instead of better weather locations, bigger markets, no state income tax etc.

 

We will soon see.

This area does seem to be the one place where Pagano does indeed have some type of magic touch. If Bouye comes to Indy for an interview, there's like an 85% chance that he's a Colt after that meeting.

Not sure that closing deals with FA's over the years has really been due to Pagano.  Is that even in his wheelhouse, as opposed to say, Grigson/Ballard/Raye?

Supposedly he's the one that got P-Rob last year, apparently meeting with Chuck is what sealed the deal.

I'm pretty sure over the years people have mentioned that Grigson was known as a "closer". 

 

Edit: Here's an article on it. Man this seems like a distant memory...

Rob needs to make a big leap this year. Maybe isolating him in the slot with Bouye and Davis on the outside will do him wonders.

Well, considering who Grigson gave contracts to, most were going wherever the money was.

    • I said I understood his point of view. I don't devalue players like you seem to do. Players earn their spot and develop. It's that simple.
    • As far as I know, they use the same process for their NFL evaluations as they do for their college evaluations.    Now the additional component here is the projection, because their NFL grades are descriptive of the performance, while the draft big boards are predictive, which of course adds some uncertainty and projection about the prospects transition into the league.    I would love to see their correlation numbers(but they are not public so...) because they've been introducing some new things into their projections - for example, they've said they've been studying what translates from college to NFL and what doesn't... for example - pass-blocking for OTs seem to translate better than run-blocking ... clean pocket passing translates and is more stable than off-script plays for the QBs, pressures/win%/college grade translate more than sacks for DL, etc. Then you add athleticism to the mix... and things can get murky.    In general my biggest beef with their boards has been that they seem to overemphasize what the player is right now and don't seem to put enough emphasis on developmental upside. Although... as I say that I look at DK Metcalf being their no. 1 ranked WR while sporting a grade of about 70... (while most other projected day 1 and day 2 receivers are in the 80-90 range), so... maybe they've been changing their projections a bit... I don't know.   
    • what was your point then? you were supporting choe's suggestion that we don't need O weapons, because we have XX already and Ballard sees something in them because they are on the roster. why wouldn't you apply that logic to everyone on the roster?   no spin. it's logic. but please explain.
    • People love to talk about how smart Rick Venturi is, and he is.  However, if you look at his record as a head coach it’s not good, that just reminds me even bad football people are way smarter than anyone posting here when it comes to football.  
    • KC followed the blue print Phil and Jax laid out (and even the Bengals early on) to double TY, and it worked. We played teams with crappy Os last year. This year we play 7 of the top 11 Os from last year. We can't afford to be shut down like KC did to us. If we get down early, we're one dimensional, and more times than not, we're going to lose. We have zero proven weapons receiving besides TY and Ebron (and Doyle if he can stay healthy) at this point.
