All this projecting is great but at the end of the day we will have traded 2 first round picks to move up and get a developmental “raw” player that has “freak athleticism”.

You know I have to add one of my Kentucky guys. If he falls in the draft WR Lynn Bowden. He can play slot and might not be as good of a returner as Harris but I guarantee he wouldn't be much of a fall off. He is still a little raw because he had to play QB because of injury but the kid is special. I wouldn't spend a first or second but if he slips to the 3rd round some team is getting lucky.

I like CeeDee Lamb. Getting destroyed by LSU left a bad taste in his mouth and I'm sure he wants to show his worth at the next level.

I get he played in the Big 12 (swiss cheese D) but his route running is very good and has those "mean" hands. We need more WR's not named Michael Thomas to go get those 50/50 balls. Not a burner but his ability to run crisp routes makes up for it.

He could fall to the end of the 1st rd.

I'm also a big believer in CeeDee's talent. It was not just bad Big 12 defenses, he really has the skills IMO. His RAC is extraordinary and he can run routes well enough to get it done. I see a lot of Stefon Diggs in him, minus Stefon's occasional attitude issues.

Did you watch the Okie V LSU CFP Game? He dropped some gimmes...

In my head, was having conversation with Hagan after one downfield drop pass that should've scored, and I could hear Kev saying (JP), he just dropped a gimme for seven in a big game, I'm not sold...

And that was an ideal game to scout him because of the level of competition; Lamb will probably go high, but in this deep WR class, can't justify a R1 pick on a guy who drops the ball in big games...

Respect and Love Y'all, but I'll agree to continue to disagree...

Speaking of Oklahoma, regretfully, Creed Humphrey has stated his intention to return to school; don't get it as a Center just doesn't get taken in the front half of the first round...

Now I like Wisconsin's Tyler Bad@ss, and wouldn't mind taking him and moving McCoy to Guard, but Creed Humphrey has terrific size and could go to either Guard and start right away, and maul right away...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

Yes. See Exhibit A - Marcus Davenport.

Even 1st rounders require "coaching up".

Why would you want to move a guy (a polished rookie I might add) who was graded as the 5th highest graded center in the NFL? Erik has been good in both pass protection and run blocking. He had HUGE shoes to fill when Max left but this kid has taken on the challenge and accepted it well as a rookie.

Leave Erik where he's at.

Yeah I'm not sure what was up with the drops in the last game. It wasn't something he showed in most other games this year. And from my view, he was the only reason Hurts was even a Heisman candidate this year. A lot of those passing yards were CeeDee busting loose and making giant plays after the catch.
