Wouldn't mind any of those players save for Boyd. That'd be a horrible waste of a pick, at just about any round other than 7.

Solid list thus far. I trust Gettleman's talent evaluation for sure.

FYI, Borland is Mini-Keek

 

And Boyd is a waste of a pick

How is Boyd a waste of a pick? We need a back up for Cam. Had we drafted Wilson, this wouldn't be an issue but The Seahawks got to him first.

I read an article not too long ago wherein a former GM was interviewed about off-season strategy. It was pretty remarkable because he talked about changing it up from year to year to keep other teams from really knowing what they wanted to do. IIRC teams are allowed to have private workouts with about 30 players. This GM mentioned that some years they'd bring in guys they were actually interested in and some they'd bring in a bunch of guys they'd already eliminated/knew they weren't going to draft so other GMs wouldn't know who they were actually going for.

Last year we drafted 2 out of about 50 we had pre-draft visits with: KK and Kugbila. We brought KK and 26 other players in for private workouts, and Kugbila was not among them.

 

It'll be interesting to see another year of Gettleman drafts and how these trends start to play themselves out.

1. Short

2. Only is his deep ball (that I am not too sure about)

 

He was throwing to Sammy, Dre, and Bryant too

Someone mentioned we should have a thread of players we've met with... so... here it is! Mainly taken from WalterFootball.

 

I also know we've had reps at Ole Miss (Donte Moncrief) and Florida St. (a lot of players... notably Kelvin Benjamin and LaMarcus Joyner).

 

 

QB

Tahj Boyd - Clemson (Senior Bowl)

 

WR

Jordan Matthews - Vanderbilt (Private)

Jared Abbrederis - Wisconsin (Senior Bowl)

Kevin Norwood - Alabama (Private)

Corey Brown - Ohio St. (Private)

 

TE

Eric Ebron - North Carolina (Private)

OT

Morgan Moses - Virginia Tech (Private)

Billy Turner - North Dakota St. (Private)

Cameron Fleming - Stanford (???)

 

DL

Justin Ellis - Louisiana Tech (East-West)

 

LB

Chris Borland - Wisconsin (Senior Bowl)

Adrian Hubbard - Alabama (Senior Bowl)

 

CB

Jason Verrett - Texas Christian (Private)

Pierre Desir - Lindenwood (Private)

Nope! UVA

 

Good list.

Yeah, us and Philly.

 

Gettleman said he knew Star would drop to us if a team in the top five didn't take him (presumably Philly).

 

One advantage about having a GM who's been around is that he has more connections and probably a better understanding of who does/wants what than the younger guys who have been with one team.
