  1. Let's play pick two running backs

    Over 4 yards per carry. *sigh*
  2. SF 49'er safety Jaquiski Tartt

    We didn't trade up for Bradberry. We traded up for Worley.
  3. SF 49'er safety Jaquiski Tartt

    He was one of the top safety prospects in the 2015 NFL Draft. If you don't pay as close attention as I and many others (many more serious at it than I) do to prospects at draft time, you could easily have missed him because he was a small school prospect. But he was talked about often on this forum in the run up to last year's draft. P.S. He was the 3rd safety off the board after Damarious Randall (Arizona State) to Green Bay in the 1st round and Landon Collins (Alabama) to the New York Giants in the 2nd round. Tartt was picked with the 46th overall pick in the 2nd round.

  5. Tryout Invitations (OP updated May 5)

    Just googled him. Played for HBC Savannah State, but couldn't find much else about him. Poor guy. :(
  6. Let's play pick two running backs

    Considering my background, you must understand that I was probably the one guy on this forum MOST pissed off about that. Additionally, the Auburn starter the year before CAP, Tre Mason, went utterly crazy in his car as well, resisted arrest, got tazed, and got arrested this offseason. Both guys, while at Auburn, were solid as rocks behavior-wise (or, if they weren't, they kept it behind closed doors), so I'm as surprised as anybody. And, yes, any back-up running back is always riding the NFL edge between active and cut, so doing stupid things doesn't ever help.
  7. 6-1/221 4.53 40-yard dash. Played very well in the 2015 Senior Bowl. Drafted in the 2nd round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Played in 15 games with 64 total tackles (51 solo, 13 assists) and 1 interception. College? Samford University. James Bradberry, cornerback 6-1/211 4.50 40-yard dash. Played very well in the 2016 Senior Bowl. Drafted in the 2nd round of the 2016 NFL Draft. College? Samford University. Not really saying much here except for "small college doesn't always equal failure" and "gosh, they sure have similar builds except the cornerback is a bit lighter".

    Also, Samford runs the Auburn/Gus Malzahn offense, so he should be familiar with the parts of the Shula offense that he implemented from the Malzahn playbook.
  9. Let's play pick two running backs

    That's a good point and I have nothing against Wegher and would LOVE to see the kid become a beast. I was only responding to the idea that a guy who gets 4+ yards per carry in the NFL regular season is MEH and a guy who never got a carry but did some good stuff against players that couldn't make an NFL squad is LOVED.
  10. Let's play pick two running backs

    CAP played against NFL regular season starters and averaged over 4 yards per carry. Wegher didn't get a single regular season carry. He did, however, look pretty good against players that didn't make NFL rosters in the 2nd half of preseason games.
  11. Let's play pick two running backs

    Is this an urban myth I and everyone else has just come to believe? Because the two stat sites that I've checked show CAP with just one fumble (and that was in the post-season and the stats indicate that the fumble wasn't lost). No regular season fumbles are indicated. http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/A/ArtiCa00.htm http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/car/stats/ http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/car/stats/?season=2015_3 Did he have fumbles in last year's preseason that gave us this impression?
  12. Let's play pick two running backs

    CAP and Wegher because (1) they are both younger and (2) Fozzy has a tendency toward injury and that's a bad thing to have behind our Stewie. I think CAP proved last year in very few opportunities that he has pretty good vision and knows what to do with the ball in this offense. If he's worked hard and improved his ability in the passing game, he can slot right into the back-up RB position replacing Fozzy. Oh, and even though he didn't make a habit of it, he put the ball on the ground twice (I think, recovering one) and he needs to stop doing that.
  13. Would a Tennessee Titans RB > Fozzy/CAP/Wegher

    Please explain how any one of them are more talented. Artis-Payne, in his few opportunities, averaged 4.1 ypc and a 45-1 carries-per-TD ratio in 2015. Whitaker in his few opportunities averaged 4.3 ypc and a 25-1 carries-to-TD ration. Cobb? 2.8, 52-1 Sankey? 3.6, 47-1 Andrews? 3.6. 48-1 I ain't seeing the greater talent. Were they more talented in college? I dunno, but CAP was the SEC's leading rusher in 2014. Most yards in the toughest college conference in the land. Hard to show more "talent" than that. (Looking at Cobb's college stats they are comparable. But better? Nah.)
