    Hell yeah you still draft CAP. A lot of us fans may be sold on Wegher, but it looks like he needs remedial lessons in blocking, so it's far from a sure thing that he makes the roster.

    Wegher has 100+ yds., scores 3 TD's, gets waived and is picked up by the Pats.

    Nah, he's a Panther. Put him in a NE uniform though (or any of a dozen other team outfits) and he's in like Flynn.
    Seriously, a free agent pickup even being mentioned as a Pro Bowl prospect with only 9 starts is pretty impressive.

    On preseason games vs. regular season-
    "In the last 10 years, 18 teams have been unbeaten and untied in preseason play. Those teams went on to post a combined regular-season record of only 130-158." http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/14/sports/football/are-nfl-preseason-games-meaningless-spoiler-yes.html?_r=0
    ".... we decided to compare the winning percentage of the pre-season of the team to the performance of that team in the regular season for every team over the last 10 season, which gave us a sample size of 320 team seasons. 
    When comparing the records, we found that there was no correlation between the performance of the pre-season to the regular season."  http://www.sportingcharts.com/articles/nfl/is-pre-season-in-the-nfl-an-indicator-of-regular-season-performance.aspx

    That could be a serious consideration for Byrd. He's the smallest player on the team.

    I don't boo anyone. I think that covers respect in a blanket fashion.

    Surprisingly, they're in the middle of the pack.

    OL is in much better shape this season. If Williams can hold his own at LT, even later in the year, then that's both amazing and exciting. I'm hoping he can, but that Oher won't be beat out. We're probably gonna need the depth- the more players that can fit in different slots the better. I think the line is a good one if major injuries can be avoided.

    Williams may have been the steal of the draft at the OL position. We'll see. I think it's clear that Shaq and CAP are the real deal, and CAP may end up qualifying as a steal as well. Funchess, just on the little we've seen, looks like he can play receiver in the NFL, although whether he measures up to expectations remains to be seen. Might be too soon to judge Mayo, and he could turn out to be worth the 5th round pick that he cost.
    We may also end up with some UDFA rookies who will stick and boost the rookie class.

    Do you realize your 2nd sentence says that you have seen improvement since last year?
    He does need to worry about making the team, and I think he knows he needs to play better. I doubt he's the least bit worried about whether anyone calls him Philly or Corey. 
    I call him Brown. Problem solved unless the other Brown makes the roster, which doesn't seem likely.

    Gross said moving from RT to LT was like a right handed basketball player being suddenly asked to shoot free throws left handed. In other words, it's a much bigger adjustment than the average fan would think it is.

    A month ago it was about last season, and I think the consensus was that he looked pretty good, all things considered. Now it's about 'what have you done lately?', and lately he hasn't looked very good. Feel free to wait to pass judgement until after some real games have been played, but don't expect that from everyone else. Some Huddlers are gonna do the 'cut him' thing after one bad performance, and that's just the way it is. Us fans don't like to see a receiver dropping passes.

    Those were the good ole days. Back then they didn't have a bunch of clowns sitting around trying to be funny.

    Never say never, and if you never draft OL or DT in the first round you're gonna be unemployed before long. And in the right circumstances trading up or down in the 1st round can be a great move.
