Re: College game scouting

And there is nobody worth drafting from SC anyways. It's 45-13 right now Georgia.

Re: College game scouting

I don't follow recruiting near as much as I used to, but Fournette is one guy I've followed since his freshman year. He was always a transcendent talent. There is always a certain fear with players like him, that they won't be able to deal with the pressure and constant bombardment of the media and coaches all over the country.

He seems to give no F's about any of that. He is without a doubt one of the three most talented RB's at the college level, in the last 35 years, with Herschel Walker and Adrian Peterson. I don't care about any player before that time, as the game was just entirely too different.

Leonard actually looks like a clone of Herschel every time I see him run. I don't view running back as a need, but he is THAT good where I would absolutely take him if given the chance. He is a generational talent. But he is a sophomore. He's two years away from being draft eligible (which is great as an LSU fan), and while the Saints might be bad enough this year to get a top 5 pick, I don't know about next year.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

But I need specifics. I only get a small handfull of college games to watch with no cable. No ESPN college wrap up show or anything like that.

Without this, cfb is rather boring nowadays.
we don't need a rt, we have one from this year draft(just need grooming)

First priority will be guard but hopefully we can get that in rd 2. TE or wr Hopefully we can get in rd 3. With the 1st pick either a elite DT that can rush passer or a elite DE that will complement Cam Jordan.

SC has a few later rounders of interest.

Brandon Shell, RT is an interesting late round prospect.
Pharoh Cooper WR is a solid slot WR prospect. love the way the kid runs after the catch. RB skill set. Might mouse

There are a few others

Re: College game scouting

I guess we need to start something in the college section of the board to help us all out

Re: College game scouting

Well, I guess it's up to the new scouting department to prove that this years productive draft wasn't a fluke.
