Totally agree, Hagan...Never like trading two picks for one, it rarely works for us and limits darts on the draft dart board...

And I want guys that can play, but we've got a little too much Buckeye for my liking, though I'd gladly keep Thomas, a steal...

Let's just hope Lady Luck smiles on us with Lattimore and I'll be Golden...

Re: Roster Cutdown Mega-Thread

second thought pass on TJ Ward and stick with youth movement and look to next years draft and save the cap space

Round 1 Ronnie Harrison, SS Alabama 6011 214 4.57 #15 Jr
Round 2 Quin Blanding SS/FS Virginia 6011 205 4.58 #3 Jr

Wild card Kyzir White SS/OLB West Virginia 6025 215 4.56 #8 Sr

Cool with almost every move but Bighill. All dude did was make play after play

Numbers game. We already had Klein, Te'o and Robertson. I'm sure he'll be a priority PS signing.

We still have Anthony don't we? I'd take Bighill over him and I like Anthony but it's all about making plays...

Anthony looked great at WLB until he he got hurt.

Bighill is more likely to clear and sign to our PS than Anthony.

Re: Roster Cutdown Mega-Thread

Bighill is just a straght up football player. He should have made the roster. He made plays against the run and pass. I just don't get the Lasco love. He's not the RB Cadet is and he hasn't flashed on special teams enough to keep him around.

Anthony looks lost more than anything else. The difference between him and Teo', Klien, Robertson and Anzalone is staggering. Bighill was the 5th best LB in preseason. Not even close. That being said, I think he will make the PS.

Both looked great, but I thought Victor shined a tad more in the games. Edmunds must have splashed more in practice.
Not surprised. T.E. showed good hands in preseason. Some of his touches in the run game where wrecked by our backup O-Line. He's also faster & has great size. Really hope we can keep Victor on P.S.

He's also Ferrell Edmunds' kid & y'all know how we love that.

Re: Roster Cutdown Mega-Thread

I understand Bighill may make it to the ps but i am still feeling bad for the guy. Dude put it all out there. Made a bunch of plays. To keep Anthony who has done nothing since his rookie yr over him, has to be a punch in the nards. Hope Bighill keeps his head up. You don't see heart like that to often.

Adam was a dawg all of pre season. I really thought he'd make the final 53.

As for Stephone, I assume he's going on IR tomorrow.
