    • Becton is going to be the biggest bust of the draft if he goes top 15
    • It's official....    Wirfs made himself some serious bank today.    Set or tied several offensive lineman records today....   Great measurements...   height, weight, arms,  hands....    and then he tested!   4.85 forty.   Combine record for O-lineman.    36.5 vertical.    Combine record for O-lineman.    And 10' 1" which ties the O-lineman record.   He's going to move up.   http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001104260/article/iowas-tristan-wirfs-posts-recordbreaking-nfl-combine-workout   That said....    despite having been on a team with Kirk Ferentz as the HC,  Wirfs is in serious need of more good coaching.    He's got some issues that are on tape.   Plus,  despite having elite left tackle skill set,  almost all of his college experience is at....    right tackle.    Why hasn't he been playing more at left tackle.   He's a diamond that needs much more polishing from some really good coaching.         Do I think he's now going to get serious consideration from our coaching staff?    Yes.   We value athletic O-lineman.  Wirfs has it all big time.   Do I think we pick him?    I'd guess no....       I'm beginning to think we stand a 50-50 chance of trading back at least a little so we can pick up more draft capital.   It's just so hard to see Ballard wanting to trade up for just about any position or player.    I wouldn't rule it out, but it's hard to see happening.   Hopefully,  Free Agency gives us clues...  
    • In another thread,  I said of Bechton that he's way, WAY too big for my comfort level.   He's been listed at 369 all season long.    My preference is 325 or less.   But I have to give the kid a shout-out.   Not only did he test exceptionally well for a big man of any size,  but especially his size,   but he also did so at....   359 pounds.   Seems the kid showed up 10 pounds lighter for the combine.    You gotta give credit where it is due.   He's still too big for my comfort level.    If he's this big now,  how big will he be in 5 years,  8 years,  10 years?    That scares me off.   But mad props to him for taking this seriously and showing up trying to be the best he can be.  
    • Me too. But I'd make that trade for Carr. LVR would probably want a 1st plus something else.    Wonder if Tell could play slot corner. He lined up in slot from S a decent amount of time in college, but a little concerned about his physicality. Would likely be great in coverage, but might get dozed when tackling.
    • If he's healthy, and at least 90% speed, I think he'd be in the mix immediately, and more than just depth. Willis is great in the box, but bad in coverage. I could see an immediate time share were Berry takes passing downs plus 3 saftey sets, and Willis plays on running downs and 3 safety sets. Similar to what they did with Willis and Geathers, but heavier use than Geathers. Berry has also played both FS and SS, although he settled in mostly at SS. Not sure his body would stand up to all SS work, especially in the box.   We averaged 2.3 Ss on the field at any time, so 30% of the time we have 3 safeties out there at once. Geathers would be the big loser in that scenario.    As FYI,  Out of 1037 snaps on D CG (SS) 537 KW (SS) 631 GO (FS) 288 MH (FS) 796 RM (FS) 134   Note - when Geathers was healthy, he typically had more sanps than Willis, even late in the year.
