2014 NFL Draft

Unless one of the top 3 corners or an impact pass rusher is available where we pick, I don't see anybody that would really be worth it.

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

I read somewhere that there were 15 underclassmen WRs entering the draft. I think that we will draft wr in the later rds.

Triman, you may be right...

One name to know is WR Brandon Coleman, Rutgers ;Height: 6-6, Weight: 220 lbs.

He's a bubble guy who can move up based on his Combine experience...

Another guy with some question marks is WR L'Damian Washington, Missouri; Height: 6-4, Weight: 205 lbs. who runs a sub 4.4 40, but has poor route discipline and catches the ball with his body too much...

Coach Payton doesn't mine sacrificing a little speed for bigger receivers who can muscle over smaller defensive backs...

Washington would require some extra coaching effort, but could really turn into a special talent...

And he'd be comparable to a Devery Henderson...

I really like Brandon Thomas, though he's projecting as a Guard, he did play some Tackle at the Senior Bowl - he'll definitely geaux by the mid fourth round, with a strong combine and the right interviews, he could geaux in the third round; he got into some trouble early while in school, but looks to be just a nasty offensive lineman...

Pass on anything slow out of Ohio State; State and Bama showed us all what Ohio State is, second place bridesmaids, so I pass...

I expect Loston to slide, but that's brutal

We'll have either a Right Tackle or Center, maybe both, by the time we're done in the third round...

They really should make them run the 40 in a uniform (helmet, pads)...

Some guys aren't as fast with the pads on...

If you want to see a fast LB - look for Howard Jones out of Shepherd Univ (WV); I'm curious to see if he validates NFL Draft Scouts Posted 40 Time...

I'm down on Loston ... just didn't seem to have an eye for the ball. At least this past season.
