Where do you guys think Patton will land in the draft? I really like him but I think he's gonna end up in some weird spot that we'd almost have to 'reach' (if you could call it that) with our 2nd round pick for him, that's excluding any kind of trade down scenario of course. Ideally I'd love it if we could grab another late 2nd round or a 3rd rounder somehow.

Short. He has produced against Big 10 linemen with consistent numbers I think short has had at least 12 TFL and 5 sacks the past 3 years and blocked 4 kicks this year.

I know everyone here has a hard-on for Warford. But to temper that;

Kentucky OG Larry Warford didn’t shine today. In “The Pit” for run plays he often was pushed back and looked like he was on skates. In the double team drills, he released to the 2nd level quickly and continued that in the 11-on-11s. Didn’t showcase much strength.

Interesting.. I'd like to see what he benches at the combine. He might opt out of the bench press... LOL. I'd like to see 30+ reps from him.

Doesn't sound like he will get close though.

That is just one mans opinion on how Warford looked. And to be honest, that is from draftcountdown and Scott Wright who has no scouting experience in his life.

Here is another opinion on Warford from a former scout:

9. Larry Warford, OG, Kentucky (6032, 333 and 5.05): Warford had his second straight solid practice today, as he again demonstrated the ability to sink his hips and anchor at the POA. Today he showed excellent hand placement with a strong punch inside, and in pass protection was able to lock on and consistently sustain blocks. He did a solid job of staying over his feet and maintaining his balance against active targets.

In the 1 on 1 WR/DB drills, a few guys caught my eye.

Phillip Thomas S Fresno St- doing a good job in man coverage and does a good job jamming the WR at the line of scrimmage for a safety.

Marcus Wheaton WR Oregon St- Really fast, good route runner and has a better frame that I thought. He is 5'11 185lbs, thought he was smaller. Could be a Mike Wallace type receiver, has incredible deep speed.

TJ McDonald S USC - Huge frame, but has done a good job in 1 on 1's for a big safety like him.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
