Stedman Bailey is more #1 receiver material.

im actually more of a Bailey fan than Austin. Austin gets all the love, but Bailey has produced just as much if not more than him. plus he is on the outside which is a huge plus.

Yeah, I agree. I don't really look at production too much when comparing players, that's usually a by- product of the type of player you are. Production can be deceiving at times. But the fact that he can lineup outside and is a bit more versatile in terms of being physical and fast is why I think he projects better.

Yeah have to take the best safety. That's by far or weakest position. Screw the best player available. Just take the best safety. It has to be addressed in an emergency kind of way. Don't wait until the 4th/5th round to address it and get another nobody that is going to suck.

I'd love it if we were actually active in free agency considering Dashon Goldson may be available.

YES! If we can be in position to sign Goldson, Id be happy.

Hes a stud and that would help solve the problem at FS.

It'll even be better bc we can then go a different route in the first two rounds of the draft next year for a receiver and DL.

Alright, so I went and watched some vids on McDonald, Reid, Vaccaro, and Jefferson.

-McDonald, the guy is very fluid in coverage and has the ability to turn and run on a dime (although he can be caught peeking in the backfield), not a very big hitter and takes some questionable angles, but seems like a sure tackler.

-Vaccaro plain and simple will get you down on the ground any way necessary, doesn't have a problem being able to run with backs or TEs, although I don't think I saw him playing too deep, very good closing speed too.

-Reid is a well rounded prospect, good in coverage and able to play close to the line in run support, can lower the boom when needed

-Jefferson looks pretty similar in style of play to Vaccaro, plays closer to the line, gonna hit you hard but sometimes will miss because of it, loves to blitz, very aware when in coverage too

These are based off highlight videos so obviously they aren't going to show a lot of negatives, but we'll see a lot more as the season progresses.

Cheers

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
