well, kind of interesting and yes, i should have been working but whatever.

i was trying to get some "industry" insight into what he thought about nawrocki's comments about newton as well as find out where nawrocki got his "info"....and troll a little :redface:. i might have come off as being a bit argumentative and disrespectful but whatever.

what was most interesting, though, was that (surprise!) he didn't actually talk to anyone at auburn. he talked to a couple scouts and a GM. nawrocki took that 2nd hand info and dind't just state it as someone else's opinion, but as fact.

i don't know much about this draft guy i was talking to, btw. it's just someone called "the sideline view"...i dunno. just one of the NFL draft twitter feeds i follow.

i'll post the conversation in the next post in case you want to read the thing.

@JoshNorris I respect Nawrocki the most in terms of being as close to what a league scout does as you will find.

[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@raynmannfldraft ray
because nawrocki did such a great job w/ newton. LOL the dude showed himself to be a narrow minded hack.


@raynmannfldraft ray
who was it nawrocki talked to to find out about cam newton being fake?

[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE]
@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
Spoke with at least two people I know. I confirmed with them they spoke to him. Auburn teammate said same thing last year


@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
If you think Nawrocki is a hack for passing along info he got from people who did character background then you are crazy.

[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE]
@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
I get character stuff from league people all the time. Sometimes I use it. Keep in mind character evaluation not complete.

[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@raynmannfldraft ray
so you still believe that crap?

[/QUOTE]
[QUOTE]@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
Believe what? I spoke to two teams who did character work on him. HIs own teammates had issues w/ him at times last year.

[/QUOTE]


[QUOTE]
@raynmannfldraft ray
did he talk to coaches? did he talk to anyone with a favorable view of him? if so, why didn't he share that?

[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
That has nothing to do with the football evaluation side though. Most teams break down player character the same way he did

[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@raynmannfldraft ray
did you and him seek a balanced perspective? just wondering why it wasn't shared. not the spin he wanted?

@raynmannfldraft ray
you think he did a better idea than the panthers did? you trust his assessment over theirs? they probably saw thru the BS.

@raynmannfldraft ray
how much effort did he put into the football eval. focus on his eval was on his character and it was off base.

[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
You can disagree with him making the info he got public, but that info was out there. I had it before Nolan did.

[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@raynmannfldraft ray
was there any effort to balance or was there any interest in finding it. was it looking for dirt or what made him successful?


@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
He did not talk to coaches. He talked to scouts and a GM and they got it from coaches.

@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
I don't know about balanced perspective. I heard same stuff and had him #1. Other teams heard it and had him #1. Point?

[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@raynmannfldraft ray
and that's all he talked to or the only opinion he got? finding that incredibly hard to believe.

[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
I respect his assessment. I don't have to trust anything he says or doesn't say other than I know he is doing it legit

[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@raynmannfldraft ray
was it coaches and players in florida or did they talk to ones at blinn and auburn?

[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
NFL teams didn't "see through BS" because they do own work. We live in this media draft bubble and they live in real world

[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@raynmannfldraft ray
heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend...gotcha.

[/QUOTE] [QUOTE]
@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
you can minimize it if you want to, but you are trivializing the process because you might not understand it.

Nawrocki never said he spoke to his teammates he said he spoke to a "League GM" bullshit.

Go back & read his football evaluation. Isn't that bad. Newton much better @ continuing to look down field than NN thought

@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
To answer abt balance, read my article about this topic from last year and tell me what you think: blog.chron.com/fantasyfootbal…

[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
The people my scouts talked to where at Auburn, not Florida because you know what they are going to say.
[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@raynmannfldraft ray
what the crap is that even doing in an evaluation? do they do that with everyone? there was bias


@raynmannfldraft ray
i think you did ok with your review of his statements, but understandably, you are going to be defending him. he's 1 of you guys
[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
He's not one of my guys. I've spoken to him 4 times ever. I am just being honest. You have one perspective, I have other
[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@raynmannfldraft ray
if he or any of u are going to be reporting anything that derogatory, u better go and talk to the individual themselves.[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
In case you didn't know... those things are in NFL evaluations all the time. You are used to reading draft writers
[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@raynmannfldraft ray
he made it public and stated it as fact. not opinion. he didn't say that is what some said. he said that is what he was.

@raynmannfldraft ray
him doing it without talking to the man himself, esp. phrasing it that way showed a lack of character. he's a character assassin
[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
why are you so ramped up about this still? Are you an Auburn or Panther fan? I'm just curious

@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
nevermind. I read your timeline. [/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
you clearly don't follow Nawrocki's work or you would know that he has done that with other prospects in the past.
[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@raynmannfldraft ray
done what? attacked people's character without talking to the man himself?
[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@SidelineFB TheSidelineView
okay, we're finished.
[/QUOTE][QUOTE]
@raynmannfldraft ray
you didn't clarify. meh...
[/QUOTE]btw...while it may seem that i'm still upset about all this, i've moved on. i was just curious about this guys perspective and just got kind of pushy. i didn't care about winning anything either. it's a stupid twitter conversation.
