Man I love this draft. I am slowly but surely warming up to OBJ in the first. The more I watch him the more I like him. To be honest, I think his stock is going to rise pretty quickly as the draft approaches but there are only 27 players that can be selected before our pick. Hopefully he is not one of them.
Yeah, that means nothing. Street gang fights are no different than backyard brawls between teenagers. Two idiots running their mouth, shoving, and charging after each other and slinging haymakers recklessly. And you know what happens when you do that against a trained martial arts fighter? They break your arm or you wake up in the 4th grade.
It has nothing to do with the game being "tough." He doesn't have the skills or knowledge to take on a skilled and trained fighter. If the past reports are accurate and Zimmerman truly is a former boxer and martial arts student, he'd most likely make the game look like a complete fool.
Go watch some early 90s UFC. Middle aged, average build guys like Zimmerman who were trained martial arts guys beat the poo out of the strong, muscular "tough" guys.
That's all true but this wouldn't be a mixed martial arts bout.
It would be a boxing match. I'm pretty confident the Game can take a punch and can throw his own decently as well. He certainly has the reach advantage is an athlete as evidenced by the fact the man was a Division I basketball player. I'm not saying he would dominate the man, I'm just saying I have a feeling the Game can scrap, hold his own, and throw a punch or two as well as take them.
At the moment I am on my phone so can't post the links that easily, but last night I saw numerous mocks that had him outside of the first round and one of which had us selecting him at 28. Meanwhile, other sites have him in the top 10 or a top 15 lock. Did I miss something lately? I think it's unusual for there to be this much disparity between mocks.
Evans won't run a blazing 40 and doesn't seem that polished overall to my untrained eye. Any chance he slips to 28? Hard to say now, sure, and there are a lot of teams that could look to upgrade their WR position before us, but should we be pulling for him to have a below average combine so he falls into our laps?
Many of the plays he made with Manziel he could make with Cam and he brings the size we need at the position without a doubt. Just confused as to why some mocks have him falling and others, if I am not mistaken, didn't even have him in round 1.
Man oh man am I sore. This is my first week back going hard after a couple years off and my body isn't liking me very much but I feel great other than the soreness. I suppose the sore muscles means I am doing something right in the gym.
Can't wait to see where I'll be after a few months and then 6 months from now.
Second time around trying this out...desperately wanted to get some offensive linemen earlier but the draft just didn't work out that way. Seastrunk was BPA here and allows us to bite the bullet and dump DeAngelo to improve and get younger at the position.
