I don't think that it his really his age. He is also listed at 6'9 which I don't think is accurate.

 

There was a Darius Leonard who played college basketball at Wake Forest a few years ago. He is 6'9 and probably around 27. I think the internet is somehow getting that Darius Leonard mixed up with the Darius Leonard the Colts drafted.

thats hilarious, thought we drafted brandon weeden 2.0 lol

There is no way Leonard is 27. That would have been talked about a lot more. 

 

And I'm not worried about his 40 time because he plays a lot faster, has good instincts, and makes tackles in the back field a lot more than other linebacker prospects do. 

its from wikipedia, i cant say its confirmed or anything.  September 12, 1991 (age 26 years)

 

it does seem strange, but few people are talking about him at all really considering where he played

afraid thats his age.  his birthday is right before the season 

He isn’t 26, he’s 22 or 23, but if you look at the wiki page which is giving the age of 26, it also says he’s 6’9”. Definetely messes up

The only things that bother me about Leonard is what size he needs to play at where he has the best combination of strength and speed, and his transition to a higher level of football.

@stitches who are the best players available? Any OL on your list?

 

Vikes are picking soon.:heart:

Some of the tackles are still on the board - Crosby(my OT3), Jamarco Jones, Rankin... from the developmental ones - Cappa, Okorafor, Harrison, Noteboom.... 

 

From the interior linemen - everybody I had day 2 value for are gone. Wyatt Teller left. 

 

edit: O'Neill is a developmental one too - you just got him.

Haha a lot of disappointed fans, y'all need to trust the process Leonard is a solid Will  and we got a raw pass rusher, best part is our OL is looking strong I love how much a gym rat Braden Smith is, he called weight lifting his hobby since 6th grade

I really like Brian O'Neill. He did very well against Bradley Chubb. That put him on the map for me. I had him around late 1st/early 2nd range.

Im a big auburn fan, let me tell you, Braden has the strength to be a bully, but he's stiff as a log. The coaches at Auburn ain't worth a spit, gimmick offense.....remember that Robinson fella that got drafted out of Auburn to the rams like 5 years ago? That's Braden

He looks like a road grader....maybe we will be able to run the ball.

Four 2nd rounders lol!

Thank you! Of the ones left, I liked Crosby the best. I saw O'Neill mocked to us a few times. I don't know how much I like this pick. I wanted Wynn, Ragnow and Corbett.

 

Good luck on the next pick.

Grigson must be Ballard's advisor?

 

We went into this draft saying trust Ballard. Now after we didn't get the picks we might have wanted personally, Ballard is in *? I'm not an NFL evaluator and it's been said Ballard is one of the best around. So we either trust him or we call Irsay for a job.

Another DE???

 

We keep throwing spaghetti on the wall, sooner or later it will stick, that is the hope.

 

Tarrell Basham, Kemoko Turay, Tyquan Lewis plus coverage LB Darius Leonard.

 

Here is to hoping a couple of them hit at least.

So... We have like 15 defensive lineman... (Sarcasm) and a bare linebacker Corp that is going to feature Leonard... I'm fine with Leonard but we need more athelticm desperately at linebacker.  Unless we trade back into the 3rd the pickings will be slim in the 4th.

Ballard did say early in the draft process that they would be fine if Hilton, Rogers, and Grant were the top 3 receivers, but what if one of them get injured?

 

Hopefully we are looking for WR tomorrow as well as a developmental cornerback at least.

Robinson was a 1st round pick and LT, Braden will play RG or if he shows he can RT different responsibilities. I trust our coaches to teach him and put him in the best position.

Maybe next we’ll get another LB so we have 2 shots of getting a good player at each of these 3 positions

Look towards the WR we brought in from USF Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Same college Mack is from, the dude is tall and fast and was most hindered by bad QB play he can be a late round steal.

I think he is definitely a project especially from a route running perspective, but his measurable do give him a lot of potential. I'm personally hoping Equanimous St. Brown makes it to our 4th round pick.

I hope that these guys have the size, speed, and potential of TJ Green. I love drafting for potential. 

 

lol...I'm just playing devil's advocate. In all honesty, I'll just wait to see how it all pans out.

    • Like always, injuries will help shape the final roster.....   Unfortunately.....
    • One thing is for certain this year (on paper so far) we are going to either lose a talent on WR, RB or TE depending on what direction they lean on. If we keep only 5 wr’s thinking that Hines is interchangeable, we lose out on either Fountain, Pascal, Johnson or Rogers. If we think keep 6 WR’s, we sacrifice that by going 3 rb’s and give up on Ware, Williams or Wilkins. And at TE, you risk a cut to either Cox, Travis or Hetges.    Now some of these guys could make it to the PS but not all of them. Highly unlikely we would run with 2 TE’s but if they view DF in a split type WR/TE role, anything is possible. Could either Williams or Wilkins make it to our PS, idk. Every time Wilkins runs the ball, he gets 5 yards it seems, you would have to think another teams seriously takes a look at that option and we all know how much praise CB has poured out on Williams RB abilities. As for the WR’s no way around it, we are going to lose a talent from this pool. Johnson, Pascal, Ishmail, Fountain, Hogan or Rogers, all of these have a talent ability to make several teams rosters and be an upgrade to several teams. DF better ball out at a 13 million product for us risking losing one of these young talents or some fans will never like DF regardless of what he does if he is just average and then off the team after this season. He would essentially become the teams flogging project if he isn’t a star imho. 
    • Watery eyes, runny nose, difficulty breathing... I must be allergic to reading stories like this...   Faith in humanity restored!  
    • It depends on how many out of the current group they feel they can safely keep on the practice squad. I think 4 is kind of crazy, but when you look at keeping a plethora of tight ends and maybe an extra runningback on active roster, you start factoring Ebron and Hines in as receivers more than tight end and runningback, as we will likely see those two split out more than in a traditional role. That's the beauty of versatility. 
    • I'm pretty sure it's also 12 teams.  You will have to contact Colt92 about it.  I don't think the draft time has been set yet.     Typically if I remember right the drafts usually happen on labor day weekend.
