In Topic: A trade conspiracy theory....

16 August 2014 - 04:42 PM

I've thought about this same exact thing for quite a while. Bottom line is we have a quite a few young, developing DEs with Alexander, Horton, Ealy, and Addison along with mainstays Johnson & Hardy. We also have a guy like Alex Hall, who has pass rushing ability. At some point, somebody becomes expendable and Frank may be the odd man out.


I could see us trading Alexander & a conditional pick (think like a future 7th) for Roos, if the Titans are still thinking about trading him. I've read that he's played well in camp and Titans may keep him at LT and let Lewan and Oher battle it out at RT. Time will tell...

In Topic: "Scootch over, first round WRs"---Allen Robinson needs room

Robinson is one of my favorite WR prospects in the draft. He's often the guy that gets overlooked when the top WRs are discussed, mainly due to his 40 time at the combine.


But he has everything you look for in a future #1 WR; good size/speed ratio (6-2, 4.4-4.5 speed), good hands (one of the best drop rates among top WR draft prospects) & solid route runner and very good YAC ability. He also has great leaping ability (42-inch vert.) and high points the ball.


I personally prefer him over both Lee and Benjamin at the moment. He's this year's version of Keenan Allen, in terms of ability and skill set.


Food for thought: At age 20, Robinson is a more polished receiver than Kelvin Benjamin, who is nearly 3 years older (turned 23 in Feb.).


If we took him at 28 I wouldn't be mad at all. He's been consistently rated as a late 1st-early 2nd prospect throughout the process by most. If he made it to our pick in the 2nd, I'd be shocked but if I were Gettleman I'd turn in the card about as we did for Star last year.

Really impressed with this guy. A very fluid athlete that high points the ball. He's also a natural hands catcher. He'd be a very good pick up in the 2nd-3rd round but I could see someone like the Pats or Seahawks snatching him up as a surprise pick in the 1st. Kid has all the tools.

In Topic: Predict the Panthers first FA signing

The Eagles have an All-Pro guard on their roster who would certainly agree with this.


True indeed. Crazy what being in the right situation can do for a player.

Nate Allen, S from the Eagles.  A disappointing second round pick that is still young and can improve.  Maybe the next Mitchell.


This. Allen is the type of signing I expect us to make. He's basically Mitchell 2.0 (an early round pick, still relatively young, that's falling out of favor with their original team, looking for a change of scenery) but he's actually started for four years and has playoff experience.


He's only 26, so we could probably get him on a 1-year deal as he's looks to improve his stock in the open market to secure a long term deal.


And for anybody that wants to bring up his PFF grade (-2.7 in '13), Mitchell's grade was -2.9 before coming to us last offseason. Sometimes players just need a fresh start to flourish.


I'd be ok with this signing.
