A SIT DOWN CONVERSATION WITH CAMERON DANTZLER

https://thedraftnetwork.com/articles...raft-interview

Q: When did the NFL become a reality?

D: I would say my junior year of high school. Watching the NFL, it's something that I've always wanted. My dad used to always get excited watching the New Orleans Saints play and hopefully, one day, he'll be excited to see me play on that level on TV. I also can take care of my family by doing something that I love to do.


A little foreshadowing maybe??

Michael Ojemudia - CB IOWA

High IQ player, reacts and plays the ball. Good tackler in space too.

KJ Hill Jr. - WR "Thee" Ohio State

Instead of signing an UDFA WR, why not take a late round flyer on this kid? He is fluid in his run style, can catch a lot of the underneath stuff.

Lastly he's caught passes from different types of QB's at OSU. Cardelle, Haskins & most recently Justin Fields. Because of the school, I'm sure the Saints brass with give him multiple "looks" pre draft.

Both were traded. Saints didn't want to commit that much cap space to TE, Graham had lobbied successfully that he was also a WR if I remember correctly...

Remember hearing whispers that the Saints were most unhappy with Jimmy airing things out on social media, and likely agent leaks to the media...

Yes, Stills was eventually traded, but he was part of the offer to pick up Unger. It was the Seahawks who countered with including Graham instead. I can't remember the exact source, but I remember reading or hearing about that exchange. It may have been John Clayton who practically lives in the Seattle camp.

As for the Graham as WR affair, that was orchestrated by the NFLPA to challenge the designations within the Franchise Tag. It was their lawyers fighting the fight. The PA knew the definition of player positions was getting muddied. The line between an outside LB and a DE is disappearing with teams using different packages on a play by play basis, yet the tag level differs by $2M. TE's are leading teams in receptions, etc, at $5M per year less than WR's on the tag. The PA lost that appeal and his tag was designated as a TE. The Saints and Graham worked out a new deal shortly thereafter.

I really love peace and quiet. - Barry Sanders

Stud.

Sideline to sideline guy and tackles well. Not sure if you remember in the LSU (probably his worst performance) game, he got injured trying to chase Burrow on a roll out.

The concerns (very few) is that he does not shed away from defenders. Something that will be equally hard at the next level. Can become a little impatient in coverage. Side note - there was this one particular scout who compares him to Stephone Anthony . The pro scout name escapes me at the moment.

** FWIW, a lot of teams "worst performances" was against LSU. That was a juggernaut offense. No shame for Murray there.

IMO he's gone by pick 15.
