  1. I'd love this for 8, but geez. I'm done working at 5ish Pacific time so going right to a bar. Sent from my iPhone using CarolinaHuddle
  2. Like the work. Man, I am excited about 8, but I really think I'm more excited for day 2. I like a lot of the top 100 or should I say top 115 prospects. Sent from my iPhone using CarolinaHuddle
  3. I count undrafted guys, that is one reason I like DG. 2014 was a solid draft and we even got Norwell and Philly for basically nothing. That said, that might mess up your statement and it's really hard to find good info on undrafted guys (historically). DG's been pretty solid at UDFAs. Seattle has made a living off of supplementing their team with UDFAs. I think in one game I heard the announcer say that almost half their 53 was undrafted, something really high. Heck the CB New Orleans has been trying to pry from NE (Butler) was undrafted. It wouldn't surprise me to see UDFAs having way more impact than 6th/7th rounders. As DG said, he's trying to find guys with something they do well in the late rounds and I think solid college guys who aren't spectacular at anything go undrafted. The key is, they were solid college players but maybe not flashy. I'll be honest though, this is how the guy below goes undrafted: Despite his decorated college career, Norwell was considered a borderline NFL prospect because of lingering questions about his athleticism. Greg Cosell made the comparison to the San Francisco 49ers Alex Boone, who was also an undrafted free agent coming out of Ohio State because of their competitiveness, strength, and size. Norwell attended Anderson High School in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was rated as a four-star recruit by and the 59th best player in the country. Name Hometown High school / college Height Weight Commit date Andrew Norwell OT Cincinnati, OH Anderson High School 6 ft 7 in (2.01 m) 275 lb (125 kg) Feb 3, 2010 Scout: Rivals: 247Sports: ESPN grade: 80 Overall recruiting rankings: Scout: 8 (overall), 2 (OT) Rivals: 59 (overall), 9 (OG), 5 (OH) ESPN: 13 (OT) Note: In many cases, Scout, Rivals, 247Sports, and ESPN may conflict in their listings of height and weight. In these cases, the average was taken. ESPN grades are on a 100-point scale. College career[edit] Norwell played college football at Ohio State University from 2010 to 2013. He started 39 of 50 games. During his true freshman year, Norwell was the primary backup at right tackle in 2010 and played in 11 games. He named to a Big Ten all-freshman team by During his sophomore year, Norwell started 13 games and started at both the left guard and left tackle positions. He was named honorable mention all-Big Ten. During his junior season, Norwell played more downs than any player on offense with 862. The Ohio State coaches named him co-offensive lineman of the year. He helped Ohio State average 242.2 yards per game rushing, ranking 10th nationally in 2012, lead the Big Ten in scoring at 37.1 points per game, and was named first team all-Big Ten. During his senior season, Norwell was named to the preseason watch lists for the Outland Trophy and Rotary Lombardi Award. He helped lead the Buckeyes to rank fifth nationally in rushing in 2013 (308.6 yards per game) while setting school records for points scored (637), touchdowns (87), and touchdown passes (38). Ohio State also averaged an all-time program high 6.8 yards per carry and the offense was fourth nationally in the red zone percentage (60 of 63; 0.952). Norwell was named to the first team all-Big Ten Conference for the second consecutive season.[1] Norwell graduated in May 2014 with his degree in communications.
  4. One note, I think 2016 could (Butler, Worley and Bradberry) and I think 2014 did. 2014 got us Benjamin, Turner and Norwell. It also got us "not good and not long term" starters in Boston, Bene, Ealy and Philly. 3 good long term starters and some depth/games started. Probably our best overall draft in a while, even though 3 of the depth guys are now gone. Some of that (Ealy and Philly) has to do with bringing in FAs and some has to do with just getting worse (Bene). Boston is a good backup S, just not a starter.
  5. I agree, I like all the guys we've brought in that are in the late 1st to late 2nd range. That's the most exciting part of the draft. I posted a few scenarios to push up 98 or 115 (and keep 98). 4 day 2 picks would be awesome IMHO and worth not having our 5, 6, and 7. Our 4-7 picks could get us right about to our comp pick. I'd rather have 8, 40, 64, 97 & 98 than all 8 picks. That said, only have 5 makes it a little riskier, but I think the sweet spot in this draft is day 2. I think in the 2nd round there are a lot of guys who could have been 1st rounders in another draft.
  6. Don't forget 2010 in the middle. Other than lucking into Hardy in the 6th (like Captain the year before), the rest was nothing. 2009-2011 was horrific drafting. Newton at #1, sure, but in 2011, it was an easy pick. Two luck late rounders that hit, but nothing else at all. I know 2009 was a sucky draft, but the DE taken after Brown was Connor Barwin was the next DE in 2011 and the CB taken after Martin was Sean Smith. The thing that hurt the most was the fact that in 2010, we were looking for a WR2 (took LaFell in 3rd) and Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas both went within a few picks of what would have been our 1st round pick. Damn.
  7. Weren't Short and Bradberry 2nd round picks?
  8. My best auto correct was on a FF site where I tried to type RBs and it corrected to Arabs. Looks like that doesn't happen anymore but it was damn funny. Sometimes it is painful. Most times it is good. Sent from my iPhone using CarolinaHuddle
  9. Son of a bitch. I just realized the draft is in Philly. I'm in the airport right now heading to SF. Just missed Fletcher. Sent from my iPhone using CarolinaHuddle
  10. I guess the attempts to get us to move up to 2 have failed and now they are trying to bait Cleveland. Lynch has to be desperate now. Crazy. Sent from my iPhone using CarolinaHuddle
  11. Thursday night can't come soon enough. I've never seen so much smoke and poo. It has to be Lynch driving the bus because the rest of the GMs who've been there (or have the #1 pick) aren't panicking like SF. 90% of the news the past few days is SF related.

  12. It is, but thanks I really enjoyed that urban dictionary definition. Sent from my iPhone using CarolinaHuddle

  14. Is this how it is to pick top 10 every year? It's been a while for us. I don't recall this much smoke with Kuechly and obviously Cam doesn't count since we were at the top. Sent from my iPhone using CarolinaHuddle
  15. Me too. I had a dream about meeting him at training camp and telling him he'd be the Super Bowl MVP. Sent from my iPhone using CarolinaHuddle
