Is he really trying to land a huge payday? I know he is coming off an 11 sack season, but this is the first year he's really put up #s like that.

I agree, with our CAP situation, it probably would not be best pursue him if he really is trying to ask for big money. If he was searching around for a salary like the one he has now though, yeah, I would snatch him up very quick.

I kept wondering when I was looking at the 7 round mock why we didn't have a seventh round pick!!!! I totally forgot about that trade.

I was with you till you said all world TE.... People forget how much of a work in progress Graham still is because of the number's he putting up. This WR vs TE is bull the media is using drive Jimmy's asking price up. Mikey is smart if he keeps Jimmy's head on straight. If your not gonna Franchise him you give him Gronk's deal plus a few dollars more and be done with it... Plus if your unsatisfied with Watson's play( which im not) there are gonna be some backup Tight end steals in FA which won't cost you much... Jermichael Finley for example....

As for everything else.... Yes OLB does stand out... We need one. A rangy ball-hawking Free Safety as well... I think if we take the same approach we did last season and hit with another free agent CB...( Talib, Grimes ) Take a free safety from this draft this D can be something special.... not just a comeback story!!!

i just do not get it

i have watched more than once this year being stuck on the east coast in acc land. i just do not get the kid. talent is there but he just leaves me disappointed in every game. he is inconsistent big time. lazy untapped potential

sell me on him

for some reason i can see SP getting another toy early

R1 - Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU

just can see this pick all day long from him.

He's really a 34 OLB Rush LB like another Georgia Tech guy we drafted for the same defense named Pat Swilling...

In the 34, many opposing coaches remarked that he was "unblockable"; the GT staff changed with a new 43 alignment and so he was inconsistent with the adjustments to the new scheme...

The (common) big knock on the kid per a couple of scouting sites is that he's passionate to a fault which can get himself in situations where he out of position or has p/o the officials (personally, we could use some fire on this squad, but it does need to be tempered)...

We need guys that are sudden, just wicked fast and as strong; located some footage and posted here for you...

Georgia Tech?s Jeremiah Attaochu and Why His Versatility Will Appeal to 3-4 and 4-3 Defenses

Anyways, it's either him or ILB Chris Borland, Wisconsin; but Attaboy has more upside...

I'm withdrawing my support for Haha Clinton-Dix in the first round. The guy was a ghost last night.

Yeah, I didn't hear his name much either. Only when I did, OU WR's were enroute to the endzone.
