    Charles Johnson 6'2" 285 lbs. Kony Ealy 6'4" 275 lbs. Frank Alexander 6'4" 270 lbs. Mario Addison 6'3" 260 lbs. Wes Horton 6'5" 265 lbs. See the pattern? I'm scanning the DEs/OLBs available and not seeing many that match that mold. The ones that do are Addison types instead of Johnson, Ealy, or Alexander types. DE Preston Smith is the closest one, and from what I can tell is projected 3rd or 4th round.

    My question to everybody is why aren't more people talking about Chris Conley. I watched his highlights last night (obviously highlights don't show players flaws) but I feel in love with him as a receiver. He catches with his hands, blows the top off of defense and he goes over the middle to catch anything. I honestly don't know why he isn't been talked about as a late day 1 or day 2 pick. If you haven't seen his highlights please take a look.

    So i watched Conley's best game (And the only available game from 2014) and I can see why he had a 5th round grade on him. He's not ready to play in the NFL. Te comparisons to Coates are ridiculous. Coates is a much better prospect. First off, I watched only one game for both Coates and Conley, both only had one from 2014 available. So I can't say a lot for either. But looking at Conley's statline, I'm not sure what all there is to see. He had only three other games over 50 yards, and only 2 other games with 4 catches or more. i'd like to see how he'd adjust to balls, and what he did against other comeptition, but at 5 catches, 128 and a td, this was the best display of his skill set at WR. First the good. He has very good acceleration, he has the ability to blow past DBs before they get a chance to redirect him or try to press him. is acceleration allows him to run quick, crisp routes which he showed off a few times against Ark. One he sat down on a route, then quckly turned and accelerated past the saftey who came down to get himself open for a big gain. He also has the ability to find himself the soft spot in the zone. Once, he was wide open on a route into the endzone, and the QB just didn't see him. i feel like he has upside but... He doesn't play up to his size or his 40 time. He's not very strong and it showed as he was redirected off of his routes a few times, and once just out powered by an Arkansas DB. Not once did I see him run that 4.35 speed and just completely take the top off a defense.On top of that, his agility and ability to get YAC seemed limited. Overal, Conley seems overhyped. The athletic talent is there, but he's going to be a project, honestly. As for Coates, I watched him against LSU and while he only had 4 catches, I can see why there's hype behind this guy. Coates is very physical, and plays every bit of the 6'2 he is. He can fight through contact and get off te line against physical DBs. On top of that, his mix of strength and speed allow him to be useful on any part of the field, short throws, deep balls, middle of the field, redzone. He's a very physically gifted WR. His YAC ability is impressive as well. He showed the ablity to fight through tackles and make moves to get more yards, and it was very impressive. i think my favorite thing about him is he boxes out DBs so well. Two of his big catches he used his body to shield off the DB and make the catch over them. Think of a WR with LaFell's body, but he atually uses his size to his advantage. Amazing. My biggest concerns are not unlike those of the ones I had with KB. Drops and route running. Against LSU, Coates had a perectly catchable ball just sail right through his hands, and apparently, he had a drop rate of 19.1 percent. Holy poo. Against LSU, I only saw him run somethng other than a straight vertical route once. Both of them I'd rather stay away from them first two rounds. But i'd take Caotes of Conley in literally any other round just because I think Coates gives you an instant impact at WR, with just as high of skill ceiling.

    Greg Gabriel, who was a scout for Giants 1985-2001 before spending 9 years as Director of College Scouting for the Bears (2002-2010): "The problem I have with evaluating Conley is that you don’t see those (impressive combine) numbers on tape. ... I felt he played more like a 4.50 type. ... (in his Combine workout), the only time that was disappointing was his 20 yard shuttle which was 4.30. ... I was a little disappointed in his ability to get off a jam consistently. Once free of a jam, he can break down going into a cut, but I don’t see top explosion coming out of the cuts (slow 20 yard shuttle). ... He is still very much a developmental player in that he needs to become a better route runner and also has to improve his release. After a period of learning, I see him as a player who will be a much better pro than he was a college player. It just won’t happen right away. ... Conley has very good hands and always catches the ball away from his body. He tracks the ball well and can adjust to the poorly thrown ball. After the catch, he is a good runner. ... Overall, Conley’s traits are outstanding, and because of that, he will get drafted high." http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/nfp-prospect-focus-chris-conley-and-justin-hardy/

    We all have a few trash drinks we all like even if the general friend-Bro consensus is that they are terrible or girlie. In the trash beers: I love Natty Lights, PBR on tap and possibly Bud light with lime...all forced upon me from bowling leagues. In mixed drinks I will go with :Long Island iced teas, Blue Motorcycles and yes...bc I abused Vicks Formula 44 as a child I love the taste of Yager... I will still kill a 40 of Old E if you dare me but bust out the old hip hop...bc of all the dead homies.

    Seven-year NFL veteran S Matt Bowen (30 starts for 3 teams, primarily at SS) on Dorsett: On whether Dorsett's speed translates to the field: "the speed and the lateral movement that allow him to separate versus coverage is legit. They flashed every day on the practice field when I watched Dorsett at the Senior Bowl, and they absolutely jump off the screen on the game tape. ... "SPEED…RIDICULOUS SPEED" ... That's exactly what I wrote in my notes on the first day of Senior Bowl workouts when watching him ... This guy could fly. Like he was shot out of a cannon or something. ... and could change directions. ... crazy speed ... speed and sudden burst ...speed and acceleration ... the speed of Dorsett, it's going to cost you" [$$$$$ too] On Dorsett as a deep threat: "At times, the deep ball is a layup for Dorsett because of his ability to just blow past a safety over the top or beat a cornerback ... That's just too easy. ... You want a receiver that can blow the roof off the secondary? Then take a look at Dorsett." [imagine him with Cam's long-range cannon arm] On whether Dorsett is a one-trick-pony: "it wasn't just the deep ball that stood out... Dorsett displayed a lightning fast burst at the top of the break on the quick slant, and he could win inside on the option route by pulling away from a defender's leverage or snap back to the ball on the curl route.... I want to highlight the ability of Dorsett underneath as a receiver that can produce after the catch on a basic shallow crossing route from the back side of the formation. ... we see the speed and acceleration after the catch from Dorsett as he turns a shallow crossing route into an explosive gain. ... That's a luxury to have on offense when the quarterback can throw a high-percentage ball (inside breaking route) ... bring him underneath to get him the ball in space ... At the NFL combine in Indianapolis, Dorsett put on a show with an..6.70 second three-cone time—the top time for a wide receiver. That's where you see the immediate, quick and sudden change-of-direction speed along with the explosive ability ... If you are looking for a pro comparison on Dorsett: T.Y. Hilton... a receiver who can run the vertical game and also create issues for opposing defenses underneath because of his ability to produce chunks of yardage after the catch. ... Dorsett is the type of prospect who brings the same type of big-play ability to the next level. He has the speed to beat defenses over the top, the lateral quickness to win at the line of scrimmage versus press and the open-field burst to turn a slant or option route into an explosive play by eliminating angles from the secondary. Remember, this isn't just a track guy in pads who runs the occasional go route. Dorsett played in a pro-style system down in Miami, averaged over 20 yards per catch and can win on a variety of route concepts from outside the numbers or in the slot." http://m.bleacherreport.com/articles/2421996-miami-receiver-phillip-dorsett-has-the-speed-to-burn-nfl-defenses

    You can't really compare the two. Anything you say about 2014 will be colored by how they did their rookie year. Anything about 2015 is a big unknown. For example Benjamin is being evaluated based on his rookie season not just on what type of potential he had coming out of college. While White, Cooper, and Parker are all unknown and we don't know who will boom or bust which will color our view of how big a prospect they were next year.

    I'll be blunt. White crime doesn't sell. No one wants to hear about a white guy that kidnaps a kid. It doesn't sell. White cop shoots a black kid, it's big ratings. The media generates hate. More people can relate to feeling prejudiced against, real or imagined, or to feeling the loss of a family member even though the death may have occurred naturally. They cant understand how some feels when their kid has never been taken. The media isn't about honesty, it's about money.

    ???????? being a better coverage safety than Collins isn't saying much as Collins one of the worst coverage safeties in the draft. Collins is basically a LB playing SS. Randall is a free safety with very good nickelback potential and decent SS potential too. Landon Collins only has SS and OLB. potential and he's never played OLB. ???????? Landon cost Alabama a chance of finishing the regular season undefeated as Ole Miss beat Alabama 23-17 by taking advantage of Landon's subpar-coverage skills: "Against Ole Miss, Landon Collins was picked on and burned for two touchdowns (34 yd TD pass to tie the game, then a 10 yd TD pass with under 3 min left to win the game), but it should have been even worse as he was all but beaten for another long touchdown by a tight end who ended up dropping the pass. Collins had a lot of trouble in pass coverage" http://walterfootball.com/draft2015bigboard.php It was like how Roman Harper cost the Saints from playing in the NFCCG at the end of the 2011 season when Roman Harper got torched by Vernon Davis all game long in the Saints' 36-32 loss to the 49ers in the playoffs, including for a 49-yard touchdown catch, a 47-yard catch with 40 seconds remaining and the game-winning 14-yard touchdown catch with nine seconds remaining. And it wasn't just Ole Miss that figured out that Landon Collins' liability in coverage was the Achilles Heel of the Bama Defense. Of all draft eligible safeties, Collins was Top Ten in who was thrown at/picked on the most, and Landon got roasted for a 64% completion percentage (84th-worst of safeties last year) https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2015/04/13/cff-player-profile-landon-collins-s/ Landon Collins was basically a LB playing "S" for Bama. He is similar to, but not as athletic as, another former great S for Bama: Roman Harper. Both suck in coverage but Roman Harper was one of the best in-the-box ("extra LB") safeties during his heyday: #1 in the NFL in sacks and FFs for all "safeties" during a good stretch and went to some Pro Bowls. He was a 2nd R talent just like Landon Collins. Harper had a 100-tackle season for Bama just like Landon Collins (Harper had 114, Landon 102) Landon Collins would be a fair shot to get a younger version of Roman Harper in the 2nd. Jaquiski Tartt could also be had in the 2nd and he is more athletic with more upside than Landon Collins Landon Collins is a very subpar athlete for NFL standards: horrific 3 cone (bottom 5% in NFL) which measures your coverage athleticism and terrible short shuttle (bottom 17% in NFL) which measures your sideline-to-sideline speed And Landon himself agrees with this. When told he's only good as a box safety, he said he’s “cool with” the label. "Being in the box, that's where my size allows me to play," Collins said. "The coaching staff at Alabama told me, 'You have to be tough down there and you have to be accountable.' I just had to increase my range and that helped me play sideline to sideline." again, his short shuttle (sideline-to-sideline speed) was terrible Thanks to the great athleticism of Luke and TD, we only have to use two LBs and we run a nickel with 5 DBs (one of which, Roman Harper, acts as our "3rd LB") Landon Collins would be an intriguing prospect in the 2nd to take Harper's role. Or we could get a much better athlete, and much better prospect in the 1st in Shaq Thompson to learn more, here's the thread on Landon in the draft forum here at the Huddle:

    Been saying this forever if Odi is there at 25 we are taking him..you can get a OT in the second (Fisher) who could be the same as some of the first round guys. Charles Johnson and his contract also play a huge part in this, plus the pass rush was awful the first half of the year until CJ got into the groove. A rotation of CJ, Ealy, Alexander and a guy like Odi would be dominant with Ealy and Odi obviously being the future at DE for us.

    How thirsty? About two Aquifina bottles worth: But really, I hope we don't get a DE in the first 3 rounds. If we do though, I'll have to give Gettleman the benefit of the doubt. Edit: I don't think Ealy jumps to double digit sacks this year either, that would be a pretty impressive leap for a second year guy

    This is true but Keep in mind California is like the size of 5 states combined. And if the game is at 1 then its 10 here and to get to the Bay area its at minimum 1 and a half hours for me.... That being said once or twice a year won't hurt.

    Was Collins' mom the one that was heated when he went to Bama instead if LSU when he declared at the All-American game? Crazy how time flies if so. I remember watching him as a senior in high school now he's a pro.

    I'd be cool with Dorsett round one. I'd hope Shula could implement his skill-set into this offense correctly. I think he brings the speed we need to stretch the field but I also like that he goes up and gets the ball and I think his hands are pretty dang good. He'd be lethal if he reaches his ceiling. Nearly impossible to cover if he mastered the route tree.

    Not sure what you real question is....... Just be honest with your realtor about what you are looking for....what are deal enders....honesty about your budget....etc Now, if you are trying to determine if the realtor is the right one to hire, then I would ask about how they will work for you....what areas of the city do they specialize in (make sure you get a realtor that sell a lot in the areas that you are interested in....not just the city, but the areas of the city). You will spend a lot of time with your realtor looking at houses and negotiating.....so you need to make sure that your personalities mesh.
