Pep is 30, even if he stays we still could use another DE to develop. Murray is that big athletic DE like Pep (Not saying he will be that good but they are both extremely good athletes).

You and I tend to differ on this issue it seems. I want to be loaded all across the lines where you tend to look at it as if you have quality starters there we need starters elsewhere. Neither of us are wrong seeing as teams have had success doing both.

I just firmly believe if your going to run the Tampa 2 your dline has to outstanding in order to be a top D. I think his talent is well worth a 3rd even to us if Pep is here.

This is true..I would not mind either way..Its also good that we run a Tampa 2 and a 43..both things seem to be fading away with the rest of the NFL..that leaves more players for us to get in the draft.

Day 4...also the game is today on NFL network

Cincinnati wideout Mardy Gilyard again had a tough a tough time fighting through defenders during red-zone drills. He showcases good initial shiftiness off the line and is sudden out of his routes, but once a defender can get into his frame, he struggles to work himself free and find the football. The more I watch him, the more I see a slot guy only who simply won’t be able to create for himself on the outside vs. physical NFL cover men

Brandon Graham..a DE people where saying is a lock for the 1st round..untill he came in a 6-1..Also Alex Carrington DE had a great week

Graham (6-feet-1, 263 pounds) measures almost the same as Woodley (6-2, 265) does, although his build is more stout. He could play defensive end in a 4-3 scheme in the NFL or move to outside linebacker in a 3-4

If we got Ford I would poo bricks out of happiness.

:lol:

But looking at it more practically though...and keep in mind I love Ford as much as the next Clemson fan...do we really need another small, quick receiver? Perhaps we do, because it certainly seems like our bigs haven't exactly worked for us lately. But I do wonder if having two tiny receivers isn't inviting disaster. Gunslinging aside, it seems to me quarterbacks sometimes need a big guy they can just heave a desperation throw to--not like Jake or Brett, mind you, but every once in a while when the chips are down and you have to make a play.

Jarret I believe is ready to move to the #2. I am probably the only one but I have seen a lot of promise out of him the last 2 years when he actually got an opportunity to play. His chances at that spot this year (aside from week 17) were also when Jake was in.

Jake made even Smith look horrible. With Moore in there what do you know all our receivers looked better and Jarrett looked liked he belong in the #2 position.

I think the bigger need is actually in that small speedy guy to stretch the field in the slot and eventually take over for Smith (who isn't getting younger). For has been one of the best receivers all around at practices this week. Running good routes and catching the ball well. And with his speed he could fill that roll.

The number one aspect of a receiver that allows a WR to succeed is getting separation from the DB. He has consistently done that the best in at practice this week.

We need someone to take Smith's place when he leaves, and Ford has the potential to do that more than anyone else we have a shot at getting.

Lefevour looked great.

Some prospects who impressed me.....

Ford: Showed tremendous burst after the catch ran some nice routes on plays where he didn't have the ball thrown his way and showed how deadly he can be as a return man. He would make for a deadly slot receiver.

Gilyard: Same as Ford has a long TD where he ran right by Arenas from Bama. Appears to be more polished at route running then Ford.

Lefevourr*sp: Showed great touch on the ball, poise in the pocket and the ability to scramble when things break down as well as good accuracy.

Graham: Guy was a monster, always around the ball, showed great speed and the ability to break off blocks.

Mays: Showed he can play coverage and make plays on the ball though I still think his best position in the NFL is LB.

Legarrette Blount: Showed power running at its finest pushing the pile when he had the ball. Broke several tackles and always required more then one defender to bring down. Also showed he isn't just a power back but has the speed to run by defenders as well.
