Day 3 probably.  He is short, but he is a good player.   I have seen him projected at G.  Will look at his arm length.

I don't want really big guys on the ends, I want athletic guys with nimble feet, long arms and violence in their movements. Need someone who can keep up with the speed rush around the outside, but still have the base to anchor vs a power move and move his man in run sets. I like the bigger guys inside.

He has 34" arms and nearly 11" hands.  He and Zack Martin were best OL at the SR bowl.

I am pretty sure that Gross returns for 1 more.  12-4, chance for a ring.  I hope so because I want an upgrade at RT this year, LT next year.

He played LT at clemson at a high level, and then played really well at the senior bowl at LT. Leave him there, josh Norris likes him and thinks he will be aSecond round pick

I love this time of year. Everyone gets super excited because of tape measures, bathroom scales, and stopwatches. Also known as "Al Davis Syndrome".



lol aren't you one of the posters who viciously attacked anyone who liked arguably the best WR prospect in last year's class in keenan allen because his 40 time was "slow"...?

Brandon Thomas looks like a decent player, but he could very well be there in the 4th, and should definitely be there in the late 3rd. There are much better prospects, however, especially in the first three rounds.

Who's saying he's shooting up the rankings?  Maybe the Panthers are very interested in him in the 5th or 6th round.

 

The panthers did reach for kugbilla though. So if he's projected 5th or 6th. I'm worried the panthers may reach.

A reach by what standard? Preliminary? Kugbila hasn't even played a down in a regular season game yet. Draft discussions are over. Now it is about production. He could end up as anything from a bust to a hall of famer at this point. No one has a clue.

 

I wouldn't worry about "reaching." Gettleman has already stressed that his tactic is BPA. Plus I would rather take a chance on a reach in the 4th than in Rounds 1-3.

Viciously attacked? LOL!!!

Did I have serious concerns after he ran a time most TEs would be disappointed in? Absolutely!

I didn't want him in the 2nd because of it and told everyone there was no way he'd go in the 2nd. He didn't. If the draft was done over, he would've probably gone in the 1st.

IMO, the value of the combine is to validate what the game tape shows. Is that guy really as fast as he looks? Do we need to go back and re-evaluate a guy because the numbers didn't line up with what we saw? But, measuring out well does not make a guy a football player, it makes him an athlete. When a guy looks fast on film and then runs fast in workouts, you can safely assume he is fast. When film makes you question a guy's speed and then he runs slow, you can safely assume he is slow. I was wrong about Keenan Allen, but he is the exception, not the rule and that slow 40 is why he went in the 3rd round. Had he ran in the 4.5s he would've likely been a high 2nd rounder.

I am done with massive fat asses. Look at Kugzilla, look at Otah, look at Bell. Fat dudes have foot and leg issues.

Kugbilla was a gifted developmental player. When a developmental player doesn't play or practice his rookie season there is reason to expect the worst case scenario.
