round 2
Tyler Boyd WR Pittsburgh 6015 200 4.47
Jake Butt TE Michigan 6051 248 4.83
Think I heard Butt in an interview yesterday say he was coming back to Michigan for his senior year ... good thing, we've been having a lot of fun with his name, even the announcer's have a hard time keeping a straight face when they inadvertently say stuff like, "Butt's in motion" or "Movement by Butt", .
I wish I could find the Jimmy Fallon clip from the Tonight Show the other day where he had some good jokes about Butt being named Big Ten Tight End of the Year, it was pretty funny, .

JJ Watt was also playing before the SEC started stealing the recruits. Wisconsin has not had the same quality of talent in the last few years. Look at Montee Ball and Melvin Gordon?

Were they first year studs?

I agree were are so close to making your dreams come true if we keep on losing and make it into the to 5. still need to know if we are a 43 or 43 d.

Robert Nkemdiche DT/DE Mississppi 6032 296 4.86
vs
Jalen Ramsey, S/CB, Florida State, 6005, 202, 4.49

Pick 7 is a whole different cast of players

Jaylon Smith OLB Noter Dame 6025 240 4.67
vs
Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame 6055 315 5.17
vs
Laquon Treadwell WR Mississippi 6031 210 4.52


At CB you do have some solid scrappy types. That will contribute right out of the gate. Run support and tackling has to be key IMO so a couple I like are round 3 guys. Think Mike McKenzie types give or take an inch

Desmond King
Eric Murray

We would need a whole lot of luck to get this draft to work out right. The key maybe picking ahead of the Ravens. You know they will not let defense get past them.

But it is still early we have all the bowls to get through.

Keep an eye out for WR Tajae Sharpe he accepted an invitation the East West Shrine and NFLPA games. I would not be surprised to see him as a long shot that ends up as a late invite to the senior bowl. I really like this kid.

Toon didn't work out because he came from a school that does not produce NFL talent[Wilson was a transfer].
It had nothing to do with what school he went to. He had 3 years to acclimate to the NFL. Thats almost an entire college career but spent in the real NFL and not college. He had every recource available to him to be successful and acheive.Toon did not work out because he wasnt talented enough.

You do not build a great team from free agent acquisitions, you build a great team from drafting/scouting well.
This is how the Packers do it.

Re: We need to go after a big receiver in Free Agency

Two words why this is not the move to make: Cap Space

We are already overloaded with FA who are over priced and under performing. How about we develop some talent through...wait for it...
The Draft?

Re: We need to go after a big receiver in Free Agency

I think we have two. Give these two guys time. Brandin Cooks, Brandon Coleman had a good game against a very good Panthers defense. Next year could be a their break out year.
