thought u didn't like moses?

Not in 1...he is a second round talent....had other tackles came out he would have been late 2nd. Physically he check out, good pass blocker, I just don't want to take an OT that is not mean in round 1. We have to be able to improve the run game....I don't think he would improve us in that department.

Don't know enough about the 6th and 7th round picks but the first 5 picks look like slamdunks. I would be very happy with this.

Most media heads / draft gurus have Moses going in the 1st. LT is a premium position. At WORST he goes early 2nd. 

 

Pipe dream for him to be on the board mid-late 2nd. Pretty much everyone see's him going in the 1st and rightfully so. 

 

a lot of the media have said he has a 2nd round grade, and some later. bob mcginn has him listed as a 2nd-3rd guy. he is also hi 7th or 8th OT prospect.

    • Great. That's like putting this guy in charge
    • As far as the OP's question, any OT, Allen (wasn't impressed with him in the playoffs), Lattimore, Charlton and a QB. I'd be happy with Adams, Hooker, Fournette and Howard. I'd love Fournette or Howard.
    • Again, your generalizing people.  While there are plenty of examples of trashy people (lord knows my mother's side of the family is basically a garbage dump of humanity), you can't paint the entire community in that scope.  Like many of the bootstrappers, you say "if I can do it, anyone can."  That's not true. I have a ton of stories of kids with potential, drive, brains, determination who are simply lost due to their demographics and experience.  I know a kid who was from an absolutely horrible situation.  His parents were jailed, raised by his aunt and uncle as a 2nd class citizen when compared to his cousin.  I mean, they provided, but they failed in the love department.  Not quite Harry Potter situation.   He was brilliant, earned a full ride to NCSU, but failed out in the first semester because while he could navigate a crappy neighborhood and poorly supported high school; he was unable to cope with the rich, white world of the majority of NCSU kids.  Culture shock.  Thankfully, he found the military, got his life straightened out, and is stationed in Hawaii and keeps posting these beautiful images of the islands. While it's fairly easy for white people of all income levels to navigate the great world of white culture, minorities and especially minorities from poverty have an extremely difficult time "fitting in" to the greater, whiter world.  It has nothing to do with their work ethic, their intelligence, but simply stepping into a world that is so different from where they are from. Hence why there's a significant amount of internet tension between bootstrappers and those who think it's fine to help those who need some help. What I'm seeing based on his news posts is a general level of ignorance of the people around him.  I mean, I get it, there are many examples on the huddle and in the world of people who overcame adversity, but they are the exception, not the norm.  That dirty word "white privilege," or more accurately "middle class privilege," blinds people to the realities of those outside of their small circles. Now before the angry, poor-to-rich bootstrappers get huffled about being called middle class, how hard was it for you to walk into a bank, talk to people, be taken seriously, and do business?  Despite their relative levels of poverty, they still have an advantage of knowing how to function in the greater, whiter world.
