2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Toilolo didn't have an impressive Bench Press - makes me wonder about his work ethic as an athlete... We no longer have a seventh rounder so he's a sixth rounder for us or bust......

It's not uncommon for people with long arms to struggle with the bench press. I wouldn't use that as a main barometer to gauge his work ethic.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Caught some of the combine re-run today.

Matt Furstenburg, TE, Maryland

He's looking like a nice late round prospect... definitely earned himself a right to get drafted. Pretty good combine.

Tyler Eifert(TE, Notre Dame) looks really smooth. Someone is going to get themselves one heck of a prospect. I can see what the hype is all about.

Understand the long arm struggle - but there have been other flags in articles that reinforces the idea he hasn't really focused on developing his talent to be a special player...

250 lbs sounds about right, thankfully it wasn't lower than that.

Welcome to the top 15 Dion.

230 lbs scared me. He now only needs to add about 10 lbs.

Look for that weight to come back down.

ordan is participating in drills at the NFL Combine, but he unveiled something on Saturday that could make teams think twice about his draft status: he's having surgery in the coming week to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder.

Jordan said that the surgery will force him to rehab over the next several months:

"Give me about 3-4 months as far as my rehab. Iím going to attack my rehab after the surgery as hard as I did before, just to make sure Iím able to show up to camp and compete with all the other guys."

That could put Jordan out for all of March-June, with a return some time in July. He would miss organized team activities and minicamps, but would probably be ready to go for training camp. The surgery is expected to hurt his stock too much, but you never know -- there are quite a few defensive end/outside linebacker types who might be attractive for teams in the first round, and a guy who isn't having surgery might end up going over Jordan.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

so many players including Jordan need to check out medically.

what i love is all the Alabama OL so far have brought up questions that sport writers saying hurt their ratings. LMAO i am back to what was said in the early part of the year.

Barrett Jones is the man.
