Mock Drafts / Re: Another fanspeak pre combine mock draft
« Last post by RT on February 21, 2019, 07:56:46 AM »
Dexter Lawrence is starting to make a ton of sense to me. I know people will say you can get a NT later in the draft, but he is a dominant player. They talk about the Clemson players benefiting from the play of others, he's the main guy. Imagine a D-Line with Clark- Lawrence- Daniels, who will they double team? Talk about collapsing the pocket and getting pressure up the middle.

It is way to early to have strong opinions on players until we get some numbers on them. We have game highlights, but we really don't know what they are yet athletically. But as for Lawrence, IMO, I will be very surprised if he is a first round pick and will not be surprised if he is bypassed in the second round either. He was the third or fourth best DLineman on his college team and enters the draft with strike one on the NFL drug testing. Add in the total of 1.5 sacks from him last season, hardly a studly stat, I don't think that is going to equal to being drafted very high.

NFL Talk / Re: NFL pays Keapernick $60m - $80m to go away.

The problem was that how can you defend Blake Bortles making 7 million a year, and he was benched for Cody Kessler.

But a guy who took his team to a SB, and almost won, cannot get a job?

If he gets suspended, and likely he will, its under a million.

Mock Drafts / Re: Another fanspeak pre combine mock draft

Rashan Gary is working out for the draft near my home. Let me tell you if he weighs 280 lbs, he's the thinnest 280#s I have ever seen. I mean this in a good way. The guy is totally buff. He even looks menacing when he walks. He's also well spoken. I hope that Green Bay takes him and makes him the heir apparent to Wilks.

I am starting to warm to the idea of Gary as the top target for the Packers, I think Pettine would maximize his talents by moving him around to take advantage of teams weaknesses. A flexible defender that could be used like Peppers was.

Gary would be a very solid pick. I don't think any of us would complain about that.

I'm in favor of an "impact-play maker" at #12. I don't care who, or what position, just make it a winner of a pick..............please!

New rumors are that the $60m - $80m figure is highly inflated, and the real number is half or less. Since there's binding NDAs all around, I don't think we'll ever know for sure.

The higher numbers would typically be "go away" payouts and include a clause that he will never work for the NFL again. But rumors persist that the Panthers and Pats are talking to him about a job, kneeling in front of the bench apparently.

I'd like to go on record that I will kneel in front of the bench for half whatever Keapernick agrees to. When asked, I'll say I'm kneeling to protest my white privilege.

 Don't forget about Tony Brown, tough guy with a ton of intensity. Total theft by Gute on that acquisition.

Agree that he is worth watching and he should be a cheap re-sign if they do like him as an option for next season. As of right now he is a free agent and not a member of the Packers. But yes, it would not be a surprise in the least if he was on the opening day roster. Knows the system, plus one for him.

I get all my H/W/40-times from nfldraftscout.com. They've been fairly reliable compared to many sources that tend to inflate measurables. Granted, college athletes are still growing and can put on/lose lbs. at the drop of a hat-- but if Miles Boykin is 6' 6"-- I'll eat said hat.

The combine is right around the corner and their will be no fudging of numbers after that. Every year most teams have some new large WR that is going to set the world on fire, he is going to be just unstoppable. But each year they come and go only to be replaced by the next unstoppable oversized WR. The 3-cone drill is the place that will expose them as having a chance to be the real deal or if he is a fraud. What is Miles Boykin? I have no idea at this moment, but after the combine most should have a very good idea.
