Re: 2017 New Orleans Saints Draft - Scouting Prospect Visits, Bowl Games

Interesting. NFL.com's list of weaknesses sounds like the rest of our LB crews from the last few years:

"WEAKNESSES Undersized by NFL standards for position he's currently playing. Labors to disengage once size is on top of him. Will need more play strength to ward off NFL blockers. Improving with hands, but needs to continue technique work to control blockers. Lacks necessary bulk, length, and play strength to set a strong edge as an NFL 3-4 outside linebacker. Marginal speed-to-power ability. Connects and sticks to tackles when trying to bull-rush under their pads. Pass rush reliant upon athletic talent and cursory hand play. Needs more diversified rush plans. Slides off of too many tackles. Missed 16 tackles over final two seasons at Temple. Needs to chest-up and run feet through contact. Played in fewer than 70 percent of team's defensive snaps."

I like that they compare him to Shazier though. That guy plays crazy mad.

The thing is, those weaknesses apply to projecting him as an edge rusher. We'd use him as a weak side LB.

Hahaha! "Browns gonna brown"

They did trade up for Johnny Football while Carr sat there until the third round.

If I were the Browns and they were stupid enough to not select Garrett; I'd damn sure trade down and stock up on even more picks...

Maybe the Jets feel they've been a QB away from getting past the Patriots making the jump...

Could Ryan Pace be feeling pressure to move da Bears to jump the 49ers to get Trubiskey?

49ers Jed York wanting the No. 1 pick and be worse than the Browns in franchise mgt?

Browns could really go Fournette, taking the pressure off of a quarterback in that division...

Or just the Browns owner has giving edict to take a QB...

Pre draft media hype. I'd be surprised if Myles isn't their guy @ #1.
