    Just bear in mind that it's probably about his injury status as much as anything. Still, I'm warming to him as a second rounder, but not in the first with those knees.

    I've said for a while that Pass rushing help for Jones/Ninkovich is important but that it should come from somebody that can fill another role too. This is where Easley scores highly in that he can play on the edge and inside equally comfortably.

    Think its gonna be Easley vs Tuitt depending on the draft.

    If there is a QB / WR worth aiming for then Easley, else they go with Tuitt and get a QB in round 2-3... For some reason i Count with a WR + RB + QB pick in the first 4 rounds.

    jesus christ the Dominique Easley obsession here in unreal!

    The way you guys are going on and on about him, you'd think this guy is the second coming of Reggie White.

    Ye

    Yes, that's exactly what "I'm warming to him as a second rounder" means.

    Been looking around and i cant find Pro day numbers on OG Spencer Long. He had a priv pro day planded 17/4 and Eagles etc gonna have a priv workout with him.

    At the same time then i Wonder why Penn State ppl seems basicly forgotten on the map? Any have news on that one?

    This is interesting bearing in mind that we had Easley come in too.

    This is a buy low candidate I can certainly get on board with. He has to slim back down to sub-300lb range but he was an excellent interior penetrator in 2012. I think he could offer a similar package to Easley/Donald at potentially a much better value. He would only be a role player but he could certainly be a playmaker. This is assuming he does get his weight under control because bulking up and trying to play the run certainly wasn't his strength last season.

    I think he's already down to 295. I've not watched him in the past because I've always considered him the least likely Patriots player.mit will be interesting to see how good he really is. Would you take him at 62?

    No, not after his 2013 season and the fact that I think he is simply a role player. Late 3rd I would consider it if we worked him out at that lower weight and he looked good but there are just way too many other talented players in this draft to take him in the 2nd.

    Watkins is on my shortlist of players I'd like to draft. Not sure it's the biggest need though at this point but the versatility to play safety and corner must be attractive to Bill. I think we'd have to take him with the 62 pick though, don't think he'd last until 93.

    This should be noted in light of what happened with Nate Solder

    Watkins is soft. He's one of the few Gators entering this draft that I don't want. Pass.

    I didn't see it mentioned in here, and maybe I missed it, but Connor Shaw worked out with the Pats today. They're continuing to kick the tires on quarterbacks.
