This guy is more of a day 3 pick.


Lol? He's a third round guy all day long.

I'm positive. Cyrus is a powerful mauler but against burners he's average. Thus, why I believe, he's better suited for RT.

 

Well, that certainly fits with his combine performance today.

He ran a 4.97 40 which looks pretty good too.

 

He ran a 5.09 and weighed in at 317

 

He will most likely kick inside in the pros and be a great pulling guard

I doubt Cyrus is drafted until the 5th now unless he gets some new medical info.

 

Teams just won't waist the pick, especially after his subpar performance today

He was gassed after the first position drills too, sitting there huffing and puffing while everyone else was all casual. He really didn't seem like he prepared for the combine, and the interview he had with the announcers gave off a bad impression.

Is be surprised if he gets past round 3, wouldn't be surprised if he gets pick in round 2 either

Let me correct my previous comment.  The more I think about it, and the more I read about this guy, he could be a late second rounder if you think he can play LT.  As a G, he is rated lower, I suppose.

Cyrus, by the way, is rumored to have a chronic arthritic knee---not good for a 330 lb man (see Otah, Jeff).  Fortunately, we no longer have a GM who drafts people with serious medical situations (see Nelson, Bruce; Stewart, Jonathan; Otah, Jeff; Hogan, Brandon).  Heck, three of the names just mentioned were recovering from major surgery when we drafted them.

 

If I am the GM, I take Cyrus off my board. 

 

I like the T from Nevada (Botonio), James Hurst , and maybe Jawan James (short arns though). 

 

Morgan Moses hurt his stock a bit today.  I would not be surprised to see him drop to a second rounder.

If an OL ever runs 40 yards in a straight line in a game, then something either really good or really bad just happened.  He's running to celebrate a TD or running to try to catch a defender trying to take a turnover the other way for a TD.
