    Doesn’t it seem like a lock that he’ll be drafted by the Seahawks as their Kam Chancellor replacement?

    I enabled every year and that was the best 3 cone time by far going back to 2006.

    Weird thing is Skrine is the only one who really made a significant impact as a player.

    Ouch



    Makes a mockery of the notion that “it’s all about the tape”.

    If the NFL thing doesn't work out for him, he might have a career as a gymnast;
    those explosion & agility #s are jaw-dropping.

    He’s prob too slow to play tackle, they’ll kick him inside to guard. His bench has me more worried. He lost a lot of money this wkend

    Well he could improve those numbers but look at the tape. There's no way he's falling to day 3.

    I still feel he can play tackle. He's 345. He could shed some weight

    It's the same kind of red flag, though, as failing the drug test at the combine. As the saying goes, You had one job. . . .

    And I very much doubt he’ll stick in the first.

    The combine numbers (and their comparisons to Pats players) just confirm to me what I was thinking for the last few weeks. This is a draft where the value is on day 2 / early day 3. This is where you want to have the most picks / most flexibility to move around and collect talent.

    Realistically all the blue chippers will be gone so unless we want to get a OT or a QB to use a fifth year option on there is no good reason to hang to 31 over gaining an additional pick in that range by selling that fifth year option to another team.

    I disagree. There will be at least one linebacker available that would be a top 20 pick any other year. Probably Rashaan Evans.

    He must have heard the Jets were interested.

    He could and should shed weight. Wonder what his playing weight was at OU?

    And I want to see 2 numbers improve at his pro day, his bench and 10 yard split. I worry for his Qb if he’s going against an edge rusher with speed like von Miller.

    I'd be all for this pick, but do you really think that he'll make it past the Packers or Steelers? Tony Pauline has reported that both teams have targeted him. As for other linebackers, Smith and Edmunds are pretty much top 12 locks from what I've heard. That leaves LVE, Evans, and probably Jefferson for all the other needy teams. There's a lot of space between them and pick 31. Sorry to be such a downer -- I hope it works out -- but I just have a tough time envisioning a scenario in which we come away with Vander Esch.
