Yeah I know but unlike most LSU players were talent is not the issue and football IQ is. In SP eyes - I am guessing.

Ethan Pocic is just the opposite. may not be the most gifted player out there but he has the smarts and attitude to make up for it.

So if my assumption is right about SP view point on LSU players, he is an option.

Pocic can play guard I believe. We must draft a guard early if we don't sign one in free agency, which I hope we sign Zeitler incidentally.

Re: Fanspeak 2017 NFL Draft Simulator

Just ran one, here are my results:

Round 1, Pick 11: Derek Barnett - DE - Tennessee
- the compliment to Cam Jordan. FInally legit pressure from both ends

Round 2, Pick 10: Gareon Conley - CB - Ohio State
- thought about going LB, but felt Conley was a better value than the LBs available at the pick. Solid CB, should improve our DB group

Round 3, Pick 12: Dion Dawkins - G - Temple
- big guy, played LT at Temple but moved inside during the Senior Bowl and was successful. Nasty guy, plays hard, quick feet... should fill in at one of our guard spots

Round 4, Pick 11: Connor Harris - ILB - Lindenwood
- small school guy, with reported great work ethic and high character. Set NCAA for college tackle record of 633 tackles during his career. Also, projected as one of the fastest ILBs in the draft (4.65 prediction). Adding speed to our defense

Round 6, Pick 12: Tarik Cohen - RB - North Carolina A&T
- nicknamed the "human joystick", and called by NFL.com as Darren Sproles 2.0. Small but quick, stops on a dime and makes great cuts with excellent vision

Round 7, Pick 11: Eric Saubert - TE - Drake
- another small school guy, put up solid numbers. Had a great week at the East-West Shrine Game, but tendency to drop balls. Late round TE who still put up good numbers, so why not?

I could see someone doing something pretty crazy to get Fournette. Not that crazy though.

I like Gareon Conley over Marshon Lattimore -
Marshon Lattimore - chronic hamstring dating back to his high school
Gareon Conley - His mental game is ahead that of Lattimore's. He needs work as a tackler.

I am leaning towards Quincy Wilson because of the big slow WR/TE in our division

Cordrea Tankersley improved his all around game so much I wonder about how high his ceiling really is,

I really like him at OG but how bad will the baggage hurt his stock

Tarik Cohen, ahhh that would be a great pick. Looks like Sproles but more agile.

Re: Fanspeak 2017 NFL Draft Simulator

Keep a lazy eye on this kid in the 6th and or UDFA... played very close to home (Baton Rouge/Southern University). Quick, elusive, deceptively strong and has a knack for getting into the end zone.
