    I don't think the Pats will have enough draft capital to make that work. :(

    Lets get this guy whenever he comes out please.

    Reminds me so much of chandler jones with his long arms and quick first step. Except he's 6'8 or 6'9.

    Watch that beast! Baylor's nº2

    They work. But because he's 6', I was thiking more Watkins or maybe Harvin. I think he's a legit receiver rather than just a runner who can catch. Whomever you compare him too, he's likely going to be too rich for our taste.

    You mean he'll get drafted before we have a chance to take him? I don't know, way too early still

    Was watching CJ Fiedorowicz and ended up just watching Brandon Scherff, Iowa's LT. Guy is a beast! If we want a Mankins replacement, he'd be the one. Or a long-terms Vollmer replacement for that matter.

    Some talented players struggling with major off-field issues:

    Missouri Tigers suspend Dorial Green-Beckham indefinitely - ESPN

    Columbia police release report related to MU’s Dorial Green-Beckham - KansasCity.com

    And (though it happened a couple of months ago):

    Georgia dismisses S Josh Harvey-Clemons for team rule violation - CBSSports.com

    Georgia Bulldogs dismiss safety Josh Harvey-Clemons for violating team rules - ESPN

    Sad to see such talented prospects struggle so much.

    I got 2. Eric Striker of the Oklahoma Sooners really caught my eye as an edge rusher. He consistently turned the corner almost every time I caught an OU game.

    The best tight end I have seen this year period was Michigan's #87. I believe his name was Funches.

    Dont think Patriots gonna be in range of drafting him, could be a top 5 pick depending on numbers of Qbs etc

    And if we going that high for a NONE QB, then i would guess they aimed for Randy Gregory.

    Maybe. But he's already gotten kicked off of Georgia, and doesn't have a school yet. He's as close to the street as he is to being the "next Kam Chancellor".

    Regardless, as I mentioned in the defensive blueprint thread, the evolutionary pressure at the college level is driving the recruitment and development of more and more guys with length and speed who can play in space. No where is that more clear than with Ellis Johnson and Auburn in the SEC:

    Auburn revamping secondary by signing bigger defensive backs | AL.com

    - Josh Harvey-Clemons (formerly Georgia). 6'4" 220#.
    - Justin Garrett, Auburn. 6'1" 218#.
    - Derrick Moncrief, Auburn (juco transfer). 6'3" 225#.
    - Cody Prewitt, Mississippi. 6'2" 220#.
    - Derrick Malone, Oregon. 6'2" 216#.
    - Shaq Thompson, Washington. 6'2" 225#.

    Lots of others. Some are safeties, some are LBs, some are even CBs or DEs. Nick Saban broke the mold at Alabama by recruiting guys like 6'6" 230# DE Mekhi Brown, a guy who doesn't fit the 2-gapping 3-4 model at all, but who excels in space, and who describes himself as originally being a "really a basketball player and just played football for fun".

    A couple of years ago Jeff Chadiha wrote a nice article for CNNSI on the evolution of the safety position, and the challenges posed by athletic TEs (Gronk, Graham, etc.) and bigger WRs. He had this interesting quote from Tony Gonzalez:

    NFL shifts from big, physical safety to a more versatile model - ESPN

    What we're seeing is that the colleges are indeed getting guys with basketball backgrounds and bodies and converting them to football. We'll see more and more of these long, agile guys coming down the pipe.
