Re: Time for me to scout for the draft

Why didn't you wait to make a thread until you had a mock draft? Pretty much a useless thread telling us what positions you're keeping an eye on...

You certainly have the right positions in mind. I'd also throw in OG, DE, DT and WR as well.

And judging by Roman Vaccaro and Malcolm Byrds problems this year we may not be set at safety either.

Also add a DC, DB coach, LB coach.

Throw in a head coach that can win on the road aswell.

Re: Time for me to scout for the draft

This is the LB I want, if he forgoes his senior year to enter the draft:

Benardrick McKinney*, ILB/OLB, Mississippi State
Height: 6-5. Weight: 249.
Projected 40 Time: 4.62.
Projected Round (2015): 1-2.

10/18/14: In 2014, McKinney has 41 tackles, six tackles for a loss, three sacks and two passes broken up. One of those sacks came when he beat Texas A&M left tackle Cedric Ogbuehi off the edge. McKinney is a big-time presence in the Bulldogs' defense and has shown the ability to be a three-down starter who can drop into pass coverage or rush the quarterback.

8/23/14: After redshirting in 2011, McKinney made a splash in 2012 and was named a First-Team Freshman All-American by numerous media outlets. He recorded 102 tackles with 4.5 tackles for a loss, one sack and four passes broken up. The sophomore had 70 tackles, seven tackles for a loss and 3.5 sacks in 2013.

McKinney is an intriguing, versatile athlete who has a lot of upside. He has the potential to add weight and play 3-4 outside linebacker, and maybe even some defensive end, along with inside and outside linebacker. Sources have told WalterFootball.com that they view McKinney as a three-down middle linebacker candidate for the NFL.

Maybe we can trade up on all our picks and draft a fantastic drug dealer.
That way we can get PEDs just like the Hawks did and make a run for SuperBowl quickly!!!

Didn't we try that already? I don't think it worked out as well as we planned.
