Gilmore is great with the ball in his hands. Do not know how I feel about him as a corner, though. Everyone else likes him, so I guess I don't know what I'm talking about. Maybe I'm just too hard on him, as some are on Gamble. Would be nice to see a CB prospect really burst forth and get to us in the Draft, but as I've said, we have so much young talent there, I'll be disappointed if at least one or two of them don't pan out. Really looking forward to Hogan coming back.

I dunno if there is a corner right now I would want to take in the first.

Like Cliff Harris a lot. Kirkpatrick... I should like him; there's no real reason not to, but for some reason I just really don't.

I like Janoris Jenkins a lot but he is not a guy our FO would like based on his alcoholism and drug use.

I don't really like any DTs at the top of this draft yet.. not sure it will be a big position of need.. depending on how Fua and McClain do this year, but I could see it going either way.

I think WR has a big shot to be our top pick next year too.

Cliff Brings more to the table with his returning ability. I believe we need to address this as well. Getting an explosive return man like harris would be great for the special teams. I know this would probably make Armanti obsolete. We need a dynamic guy like that returning kicks. Hurney would be stubborn though. Which would put a crease in the idea of getting this guy.

Jayron Hosley is looking good. I just caught part of the Marshall vs VT game, The first play I'm paying attention to him, he forces a fumble and recovers it. The guy is a ball hawk and physical. I wouldn't mind him either.

Scouting the Lions

NFL scouts have spent plenty of time at UNA practices this fall and many were on hand for Thursday’s game.

Scouts from the Oakland Raiders, San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles, Kansas City Chiefs, Carolina Panthers, Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints were all in attendance Thursday, as well as the Edmonton Eskimos of the CFL.

Getting kicked out of the game early surely didn't help his draft stock with all his priors. Wonder if he will slip to round 2.

doubt that hurts his stock, i think he will go in the 2nd anyways.

Dude is first round talent. The thing that might drop him to the second is his off the field issues.

True, but I believe we're fine at Slot nickel package, Munnerlyn and Burney would be our go to guys.

I'm not giving up on gamble, but we need a blue chip CB next to Gamble, also Gamble is getting older, he'll need replacing soon.

Do you think we'll resign Burney?
