Alvin Gentry finally has his boys playing good ball. The New Orleans Pelicans I anticipate them to put together a nice run. The duo combinations they have @ PG and PF is enough to beat most teams in the NBA. Clippers have been looking very out of synch and have not been playing their best ball. Paul and Blake will try their best, but as crazy as it sounds I think Pelicans will steal this one. Either way this will be a close one.
Pelicans plus 6.5 for 2 units. GL.
I may have more picks later. Follow me on Twitter @podpicks1
@This was milhouse lol i dont talk to myself in forums thanks. I lost, i was wrong. I made the system so what does it matter if its system or otherwise? Like you think i would hide behind the system as if it makes me look less stupid? If anything making a system that decides to hammer the cowboys makes me feel even dumber
Character - suspended 2010 season (contact with agent)
Summary: Marvin Austin has ability commensurate with a top-15 pick. However, linemen with questionable motivation are tough to gamble on in the NFL Draft. Austin is a former top recruit as a prep and had an opportunity to cement his draft stock with a solid 2010 campaign. Instead he was suspended for the entire season for improper contact with an agent and was considered the central culprit in the scandal that cost the Tar Heels several players.
The time off is going to cloud Austin's evaluation. On the field he is a terror. With his speed, he can run down running backs and get after quarterbacks. There is a lot to like, and the reward could outweigh the risk at the end of the first round or early in the second.
Player Comparison: Tank Johnson. The common thread here is obviously lack of motivation. When these players have their foot on the pedal, good things happen. Unfortunately that is not often enough. Johnson gets some sacks and plays the run well just like Austin profiles as a pro. There is also a weapons theme here. Austin likes guns. Just look at his Twitter feed. Guns and tanks go together right?
