Your Favorite Player After The Combine

76 posts in this topic

The combine didn't really make me fall in love with any player, so much as it took players off my big board. The problem I see is that a lot of these combine stars are smaller guys, and Gettleman's all about size. I love guys like Cooks and Verrett -- I just don't see it happening. Not on day 1 anyway.

NO he's not "all about size".I think you misinterpret.

Not sure how I can pick just one.  I want about 5-6 guys before the 3rd round is over.

 

Dream scenario

 

We trade Hardy for a 2nd and a 3rd

We trade back into the 3nd and pick up another 3rd

 

that would give us 5 picks

 

2 WR

2 OT

1 CB

 

Most likely, all would start soon or at least be close

I actually hope you're right as that would give us a lot more options. What I keep hearing however is 'big men win games'. It's obviously not just about linemen either, just listen to how he talked about Seattle's linebackers and secondary. We'll see.

This is just my opinion, but I really think that Allen Robinson could fall as far as the 3rd round. I was iffy on him already, and he didnt exactly help himself at the combine. I would love him in the 2nd tho.

 

Robinsons straight line speed was not that impressive, but he did pretty well in some of the drills.   It would certainly be a great pickup in the 3rd if he was there.

 

Remember, not many guys run straight lines in the NFL on Sundays

I won't pick one, you can't make me. To answer the question, the combine reaffirmed my love for the following guys....

OBJ

Cooks

McGill

Roby

J. James

Lee

Gilbert

To the people talking about reps on the bench press, Clowney had massively long arms. Shorter arms are better for the bench press.

I've been impressed with Clowney too, but I'll be honest and say his 21 reps on the bench are not impressive for a position where strength is key.... his speed makes up for it some I'm sure, but 21 reps at 266 lbs is not very good.

 

I don't think that's a big concern. He's got really long arms which make it a lot harder to get more reps.

Fair point... Still would've liked to see more.

I agree.

 

I just thought that Robinson came in and performed exactly how I thought he would. It's not going to hurt him, but it wont help him either. I believe that he's more a 3rd round talent than 1st or 2nd. But, all it takes is for one team to like him.
