Murray's surgically-repaired knee "looked stable" in front of reps from 20 NFL teams. Included in that bunch were the QB coaches from the Cowboys, Jaguars, Chiefs, Saints and Rams. Interestingly, Jacksonville also sent its head coach (Gus Bradley) and general manager (David Caldwell), while St. Louis dispatched director of player personnel Taylor Morton. Brandt did clarify that, despite the fatigue, Murray looked good. "He’s a not-get-too-high or not-get-too-low type of player," the analyst wrote. "If there’s a run on quarterbacks in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, he could wind up being selected in that round."

I'd rather have Jordan Matthews, Donte Moncrief or Martavis Bryant in the second round - but I can see Payton taking Eastern Illinois Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in the second round - if he lasted that long...

Actually like Aaron Murray and he's the reason I DON'T trust Mettenberger as he beat him out at Georgia...

In truth, see the Saints picking prospects I'm not as high on; there's prospects I like better than they may take; and I'm hoping for a situation like last year with the injuries in that other teams' moves, selections force their hand and they end up with the best player for the team...

Last year Saints FO nailed it in the draft, until the last pick at least; this season, I'm hoping for smoke screens and that they take Attaochu and wait for a guy like Aikens in the fourth-fifth round...

Anyone remember how many of our draftees we visited with last year? It seems to me we only visited with about half of them. But hell, I have trouble remembering where I put my glasses...

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

After 54 throws his arm got tired??? No crap, Gil Brandt, let's put you out there to throw the ball 54 times and see if your arm doesn't get tired. There have only been a handful of times a QB threw that many times in a game, and they're getting breaks in between series.

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

I'm hoping that any interest in Roby is a smokescreen. That guy is not a football player. If we take a CB early it needs to be Verrett.

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

Kyle Fuller currently projects on many boards at No. 27...

While I'd be crushed if we don't get Attaochu, could live with Fuller...

While I'd clearly disclosed I don't like Ohio St - I'd be very, very disappointed if we took another OSU player like Shazier or Roby...

We've had our quota in Will Smith and Malcolm Jenkins; they too were billed as fast, stong athletes; the only speed I ever saw out of either of them was Jenkins catching a player from behind, at our goal line...

While I appreciated the effort, I'd rather our defense never let it get to that point - don't get the Saints FO fascination with OSU players; their supposed speed/athleticism never translates to NFL Football Fields...

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

Hey Jeanpierre, I'd argue with your use of the word never, but that's really not the point. You brought up two pretty poor examples and if I really had the energy, I'd bet I could match you at least three to one in successful NFL players from tOSU. But really, who cares?

I think you're absolutely right about Roby. I've spent way too many hours watching his play over the past three years and he's about as over rated as it gets. I'm really hoping someone reads the hype and picks him before us so we don't even have to worry about it.

Shazier, on the other hand would give us a second Vaccaro on the team as far as lights out hitting goes... for a little while. He'll end up in rehab pretty quickly as pro players are a little larger and more savvy when it comes to crazy heads down body tackling.

I'm hoping we don't draft either too. Just wanted to say something about blanket statements.

; Your story isn't over yet ;

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

Seer1, PM a list of OSU players and I'll respond and you'll see where I'm coming from re: OSU alum when you see the names/expectations...

There's some exceptions, but there mostly role players...

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

Kyle Fuller injury history, Roby is inconsistent at best. Alvin Scioneaux? UDFA? a bit on the small side have to read up on the kid
