    Yeah I’m surprised how well he moves latterly as well for someone of his size. He also very good in the run game as well from a blocking perspective. I don’t think the 10lbs will be much of an issue, by all accounts he was 6”4 and at 180ish before he went to college and I think he’s around the 200 mark at the moment, so there’s defiantly More to come. I like him as an outside guy for us.

    Whose his teammate?

    I think hes 6'5/210. He looks like he could carry it well. Very thin almost wirey frame.

    Cheers will have a look at him too. Been spending more time on the WRs and TEs this year for some reason.

    On a slightly different topic, where do you think Bush will be drafted?

    I would say def top 50 but who knows. I think he'll go early. Not the best class & he really is a solid player. Sometimes the biggest question or hardest thing to measure is how much someone really loves the game. Hes a gamer. Full speed in practice. Always 24/7. I can't see him falling out of the 2nd rd worst case.

    One guy i'd like us to take a flyer on is Ben Banogu - Good pass rush, but needs to improve his technique, which for BB and Daly is what they are very good at

    Just going through some of the WR's invited to the combine and these are some guys i could see us going after

    Mecole Hardman - Could become a special team ace for us as a punt returner

    Andy Isabella - Just saw his comp and they have given it as Jules..

    Diontae Johnson - Emmnual Sanders Comp - He's a threat in the punt game and Kick return

    I think they will definitely draft Terry GODWIN wr georgia. He is shifty and quick. Some of the bigger guys can't get open.

    D'Andre Walker might be the most underrated all around LB in this draft. I know he didn't put up huge numbers in college, but his ability to play the run, drop into coverage, and provide pass rush reminds me a lot of Van Noy. I think he's better in space, though. He seems to have more fluidity in his pass drops in man coverage. I've seen lots of places list him as an EDGE instead of a true LB, and I think that's why people are a bit low on him. He'd fit right in here.

    Where is Polite projected to go? I knew his dad a long time ago, and I’m a Gator so that worked out well :)

    We don’t have a huge DE need and he wouldn’t drop to us right? He just got better every game the last two years. I don’t know if he has elite edge agility and burst, but he’s got diverse moves and a high end motor. He’s going to be a good player.

    Seems like he played well within the scheme there, and can do it all as you said which fits us. Played well in big games.

    Ok I think Isabella could be developed here he does have Edelman qualities.
    I might have to put him in my binkie camp.

    In general, in the first round. I’ve seen him in the top ten all the way down to mid 20s.

    He'll be a top 15-20 guy. Only thing that could hurt him imo is his run defense which in his defense he had no idea what he was doing. Not an effort thing the kid obviously wasnt pushed in that direction. Id much rather deal w that then a lazy prick.
    As for rushing the passer their aren't many better from a burst, bend & finish pov. You watch him & you can see his hips winning all day. For teams like NE that wont matter but for others it'll be key. Guys like Allen, Sweat, CO dont have that flexibility or ability to really flip their hips around the corner. GB needs a difference maker up front & I think he really fits that mold there.

    Watched a ton of Iowa the last few years. They're a lot more than Fant/Hock/Nelson etc.

    Amani Hooker is a beast & deserves a look from every Pats fan. He really jumps off the screen. Dude is always flying around & always around the play/ball. Tough nosed player that wants to have impact, wants to fly around, hit people & get dirty.
    Very smart player. Very rarely is not moving towards, identifying the play before/as the ball is snapped.
    I feel like he has that interchangeably game NE loves. Box/SAF, no reason he cant play ST. Very good tackler in space & again shoots to the ball.

    Nick Easley is another guy that screams NE. Overshadowed by the sets, TEs, dealing w Stanley, playing out of position at times. Easley always stood out. Think he could be a slot guy for us. Very tough, vg hands & won that hustle award at Iowa. Thats enough for me. Think runs a good ss & 3c from watching him which is key for us. Esp ss.

    I’ve watched a lot of Hooker, where do you see him fitting best? Not sure where he fits within our scheme!

    I don't worry about that tbh unless its a weird fit. He covers a ton of ground. Vg tackler. Great instincts. Could be a matchup guy bc he has ex at cb i believe.

    Kelvin Harmon is a guy i'm starting to like. Very solid RR and Good hands.

    With the New DC to be Greg Schiano, do you think with his knowledge of the college prospects help us in the draft?

    I can see him possibly filling the STAR role that we've been looking at for the last few years, or a possible chung replacement to groom for a few seasons.
