With the way he's been hyped up, at this point in time getting him at 14 is a pipe dream.

If memory serves me correctly, if we bring them in then it's a 98% chance we do not draft them! Right?

Agreed. Hope he is taken before our pick so we're not tempted to be suckered into taking him.

players visit teams. Teams interview players. Teams go to pro days. Unlike draft sites and enthusiasts, they're not done with their board and it won't change a hundred times between now and then.

That said, I don't know that I like Floyd this high. He's explosive, but he doesn't keep leverage, he's got shorter arms, and he doesn't seem that good against the run. That's a little nitpicky, but we're talking about top 2-3 at his position, and for the exact same type player, I'll take Richardson.

Richardson also has trouble with leverage. Just about every UT prospect in this draft does....

I'd be pretty disappointed with both Floyd or Richardson. Neither come across as very promising prospects. It's a Falling Star at 14, or no DT at all in the first imo

Warmack in the first, Jesse Williams in the 2nd

Honestly, 80% of the Top 15 prospects have been severely overhyped.

Players like Sharriff Floyd, Dion Jordan, Cordarrelle Patterson, Kenny Vaccaro, Sheldon Richardson and 'Ziggy' Ansah shouldn't go in the Top 15... but they will.
