Hmmmmm...... Steelers rely on their D and amass alot of their top picks at the linebacker position. The Colts want to run the ball and dominate teams with their highly touted Oline that has 3 #1' and a high 2nd rounder. What is your point??
I hear you, but my gut says if you don’t see a guy that instantly shows you he can be great, you probably don’t take him in the 1st (at least as it pertains to QB’s).
Plus I feel like a lot of what he has we’ve seen before. The guy who isn’t special but is efficient. That screams Mitchell Trubisky, Blake Bortles, Brandon Weeden, Jake Fromm, etc...
Now he’s playing at a higher level than those guys did in college, but he also has a ton of talent around him. Also let’s not forget about the season Dwayne Haskins had his final year. And Haskins also lacked a stand out trait. Elite college production isn’t a trait.
It would say not injury related like it says with Houston if it was exposure. This is exactly what happened with Autry before he got put on the list. They most likely have symptoms and are just waiting for it to show up on a test like Autry. I hope though it’s not covid related but it seems it is.
For what it’s worth...
Regarding Rivers’ injury, if it’s indeed “turf toe” — and it’s not clear that’s what it is — but if it is, that’s one of the worst injuries a player can get.
Players say it’s among the most painful injuries you can get. They often describe it as like “walking on broken glass” with sharp, shooting pain. “Turf toe” doesn’t sound bad, but it is.
So let’s hope PR’s injury is some other type of toe injury and not turf toe.
