Many years ago I looked forward to your high unit plays
especially your pick of the month, I may not be following your plays
this year but I still read your stuff. Brother you're in rare form this
year especially as of late. I think it's time to tweak your system a
little, it's cosmically bad right now for you and getting worst by the
I'm not exactly killing the books right now myself with all the
injuries and upsets etc. but I'm lucky enough right now to still have my
head above water (still in profit in the NFL).
Keep your head up
brother and either restructure your system or I hate to say it but stay
with your system and fade your own picks because you're playing on a way
different level right now.
PS. If indeed you do decide to stay
with your system but instead just flip your picks at the end of your
write-ups will you let us know.
Ciron Black, OT, LSU
Not a good Combine for Ciron Black: A slow 40 (5.49), short arms (33) and a weak bench performance (23 reps). He also looked really stiff in the drills. All of this, after a pedestrian senior season. Black is a late-round prospect.
Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland
Bruce Campbell is officially a "great player." Campbell ran a 4.85 at the Combine, which unquestionably got Al Davis' attention. It'll be a huge upset if Campbell isn't drafted No. 8 overall.
Terrence Cody, NT, Alabama
After showing up to the Senior Bowl in the 370s, Terrence Cody slimmed down and weighed in at 354 at the Combine. It might be easy for someone as large as Cody to drop a few pounds, but the fact remains that he did what he was supposed to do, while others like Greg Hardy and Andre Smith (a year ago) didn't put any effort into being in shape for this job interview.
Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers
Anthony Davis' 21 bench press reps weren't a big deal because he was considered more of an athletic tackle. However, Davis didn't exactly look too athletic on Saturday, running a 5.35 and looking stiff in the drills. Bryan Bulaga could be ahead of him.
Dorin Dickerson, TE, Pittsburgh
Mike Mayock gushed over Dorin Dickerson throughout the Saturday workouts, stating that Dickerson "can't drop below the second round." Dickerson is a 225-pound tight end, but he's a dynamic athlete (4.40 40, 43-inch vertical) and an underrated blocker. He'll probably be in the Round 3-4 range.
Jimmy Graham, TE, Miami
Jimmy Graham didn't disappoint in the 40 (4.56) and definitely looked like a natural tight end in the drills. Some team will take a chance on him in Rounds 3-4.
Greg Hardy, DE, Ole Miss
This guy can't stop gaining weight. He was 279 at the Senior Bowl, which was high for him. On Saturday, Greg Hardy weighed in at 6-4, 281. Does he want to play nose tackle or something?
Marshall Newhouse, G, TCU
I've had the Raiders taking Marshall Newhouse in the third round of my 2010 NFL Mock Draft for a reason - Newhouse ran a 5.00 today at 6-4, 319.
Dennis Pitta, TE, BYU
The big question with Dennis Pitta was his athleticism. That's no longer the case. Pitta looked great at the Combine, running an impressive 4.63 40.
Andrew Quarless, TE, Penn State
Andrew Quarless had a solid 40 (4.69), but dropped numerous balls in the drills and generally looked sloppy. Quarless has a laundry list of off-the-field issues, so a weak Combine is not what he needed.
Rodger Saffold, OT, Indiana
Rodger Saffold displayed his athleticism at the Combine, running a 5.22 in the 40 and looking fluid in the drills. He definitely has left tackle potential in the NFL.
Jared Veldheer, OT, Hillsdale
As expected, Jared Veldheer showcased his athleticism to scouts at the Combine. Veldheer ran a 5.09 in the 40, and it seems like his only flaw is his arm length (33 inches). In a top-heavy, but thin tackle class, Veldheer could go in the second round.
Mike Williams, WR, Syracuse
Mike Williams posted just eight reps of 225 on Saturday despite putting on 10-15 pounds since he quit the Syracuse team in the fall. It's apparent that Williams spent more time eating Cheetos than lifting in the weight room.
Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
Where did this come from? Trent Williams somehow ran a 4.88 at the Combine and displayed a lot more athleticism than anticipated.
