As I told you years ago when you liked all the Big 12 QBs, sorry Iv have been vacationing for a few years, Gabbert, RG3, and some other clown and I told you Wilson would be the best QB besides Luck that year. You laughed, now you have gone full retard liking Watson, he has no arm strength, would be a decent RB or very good WR, but an NFL QB??? Do you want the Browns to be HOT Garbage the next 5 years? why????
Hey fellas. I'm a long time player with a pretty good pro %. 60% or close on average. Down this year on college frankly to 50/50 but I am studious and expect to get that # up. I want to study Pinnacle's lines but could someone explain their vig #'s? They use a four digit number and I don't know what it means. Hope this doesn't look lame but how's work? Thanks.
Yet again, I will follow Walt's lead for this draft order outside the fact that the Bears land the top pick over the 49ers or Browns, I have more faith in Cutler running into wins before I do with Kessler or Gabbert. Also, there are still some players not in the system such as the Illini DEs, Justin Evans and Malik Hooker at safety. Until they are in I will mock without them.
John Clay, RB, Wisconsin
John Clay, who was reported to be in the 250s at one point, weighed in at 230 Friday. This is a good sign for Clay, but he's still not a lock to be drafted. He needs to show that he can catch the football on Sunday.
Noel Devine, RB, West Virginia
Noel Devine weighed 160 pounds at the Senior Bowl. Citing some sort of injury that made him lose weight, Devine promised to be at 178 pounds at the Combine. He's 179.
Dion Lewis, RB, Pittsburgh
Dion Lewis was listed at 5-8, 195 during the season. I was hoping he'd eclipse the 200-pound barrier at the Combine. Instead, he's 5-7, 193.
Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas
Arkansas fans have accused me for hating Ryan Mallett for no explicable reason - see the 2011 NFL Draft Mailbag for more - but here's a Friday tweet from the Houston Chronicle's John McClain:
"A long-time personnel expert I trust told me last night that every time he looks at Arkansas QB Ryan Mallett he sees Ryan Leaf! Ouch!!!"
I personally see JaMarcus Russell. Tomato Tomahto.
Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State
Derek Sherrod managed 23 reps of 225 pounds at the Combine. That's not an awful number considering his arm length, but a lighter Gabe Carimi posted 29 reps despite the fact that his arm length is nearly the same as Sherrod's. I wrote yesterday that I was concerned about Sherrod's sudden weight gain. Let's see how he looks in the drills and 40-yard dash tomorrow.
Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland
Torrey Smith will probably run a great 40 on Sunday, but you can't help but be concerned about his hand size. Eight and 5/8 inches? Microscopic hands like those usually mean a huge drop rate. Look at Brandon LaFell (8 3/4 hands) as a prime example. Smith has been criticized for catching the ball with his body too often, and now we see why he tends to haul in passes that way.
Nate Solder, OT, Colorado
Twenty-one reps of 225? That's it? Nate Solder's arms aren't that long - they were measured at 35 inches at the Senior Bowl and 34.5 inches at the Combine. Tyron Smith, meanwhile, benched 225 pounds a whopping 29 times despite the fact that his arm length is 36 3/8 inches. Smith is also 12 pounds lighter than Solder. It's pretty clear that Smith has overtaken Solder as the No. 1 offensive tackle in the 2011 NFL Draft.
Shane Vereen, RB, California
Shane Vereen said he wants to show everyone he can be an every-down runner. So far, so good. Vereen weighed in at 5-10, 210 at the Combine. He was listed in the 200-205 range this past season.
