Guess what time of year it is!

Its time for the NFL Combine!

Time to get obsessed with 40 times and bench presses.

Vertical Jumps and Broad Jumps!

Cone Drills and Shuttle Runs!

Here’s the complete schedule!

Wednesday, Feb. 24
» Media interviews for running backs, offensive linemen and special teamers

Thursday, Feb. 25
» Media interviews for quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends

Friday, Feb. 26
» Media interviews for defensive linemen and linebackers
» On-field workouts for running backs, offensive linemen and special teamers

» On-field workouts for quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends

Sunday, Feb. 28
» On-field workouts for defensive linemen and linebackers

Monday, Feb. 29

Some players I think are worth watching:

Two Ohio State Athletes:

The very fast Braxton Miller

Braxton Miller

And the Best Running Back in this Year’s Class, Ezekiel Elliot

Ezekial Elliot

Physical Freak of Nature Shawn Oakman

Oakman

Track Athlete Jalen Ramsey, who may not wow in the 40 yard dash, but is expected to wow in everything else.

JalenRamsey

And Robert Nkemdiche, who better use the combine as a place to erase some of his red flags in the mind of many NFL scouts.

Robert Nkemdiche

Its going to be a lot of fun!

Enjoy!!!

    Kieth Marshall 4.29 40

  2. dbolt48 says:

    D,
    Did you see my post on the previous page of Nkemdiche outing Tunsil for the synthetic marijuana?

    • D says:

      No i didnt. I knew Tunsil somehow was mixed up in it, they had a partial report of it previously. Still dont think it hurts his draft stock, might put he and stanley on somewhat equal footing though, before i would have said Tunsil is a guaranteed no 1 overall, maybe now it could be Stanley.

  3. D says:

    Alex Collins was 4.55 which imo isnt too shabby, Henry’s 4.51 is fucking fast for a guy that big.

  4. D says:

    Wendell Smallwood is a back i have been targeting in 7th round on the first pick mocks i have done. If i dont already take a RB ahead of time, i take him late, he put up a 4.43 40

  5. D says:

    Im really wanting to see Jonathan Williams 40, mostly just to see where he is in his recovery.

  6. D says:

    Lol that picture of Ramsey above is one of the most awkward caught in the middle of a jump picture i have seen in a while.

  7. Mike E. says:

    SB was sitting next to Cespedes in his Lambo Aventador

  8. Mike E. says:

    D

    If Tunsil fell to us, would you take him? I would, in a millisecond!

    • D says:

      Yeah i would. It would be outside almost any draft plan i have done so far, but i couldnt pass on him.

    • dbolt48 says:

      Background is key just like Spence.

      • D says:

        Little difference in a guy who was habitual with getting suspended for drug charges and a guy who has an otherwise unblemished record getting fingered by another guy who may be trying to repair his image by throwing someone else under the bus. Sad thing is Tunsil was constructive in how he mentioned Nkemdiche and his troubles in that interview i posted above.

      • dbolt48 says:

        No doubt, but as you said you still have to dig deep.

        In regards to Nkemdiche…..who knows, maybe he was just tired of the label being wrongly attached to him.

  9. D says:

    Deandre Washington, another late round guy, who really caught my attention at Senior Bowl 4.45 40.

  10. D says:

    Damn did Aaron Green get snubbed from the combine invite?

  11. dbolt48 says:

    Really happy for Marshall:

    @uSTADIUM: Georgia RB Keith Marshall’s (1st ran a 4.29) second 40: unofficially 4.31.

  12. D says:

    DBolt if you told me to look at two guys side by side with the history they have and how they have handled themselves as a whole while in college, Noah Spence is a red flag, and Tunsil might be a yellow one, Nkemdiche an orange one. That said id take Nkemdiche in the second, and probably Spence too but id still be nervous by the selection in the second with Spence.

    • dbolt48 says:

      D,
      It’s why I’m saying teams will know better than you and I. Tunsil could be more red flag than you and I know. You had the academic fraud issue at Ole Miss, etc. not saying Tunsil is a red flag, but he could be.

  13. The Flying Pig says:

    I love that Nkeidmiche actually has to acknowledge he was drunk when he fell out of a hotel window

    bc that is the kind of thing that happens to sober people all the time…

  14. Al in MIA says:

    Matt Miller ‏@nfldraftscout 46s47 seconds ago

    Keith Marshall clocks 4.29 and 4.31 unofficial in the 40

    —————————————
    No doubt because the get to be one on one in interviews with him, but thats why i was saying the initial interviews Spence has done, at Senior Bowl, with the teams, and scouts was from what i saw reported, not good. Im not really going off my own opinion, as much as those reports. I am sure, however, that what you are saying is right and each team will know best whether or not he is worth the risk to them.

    ——
    Did you know that Turnsil was with him when that happened?

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I heard the rumor like a month ago

      It doesn’t affect my opinion of Turnsil
      I’ve seen plenty of my drunk friends do dumb things….lol

    • dbolt48 says:

      Matt Miller said during SR. Bowl week that there would be some concerning news about Tunsil that’d get out in a couple of weeks.

  17. The Flying Pig says:

    I can’t believe Nkeimeche felt up a ledge?

    What a weirdo…

    D,
    Given former coach Mark Richt’s ability to scout NFL like backs, that’s a major plus I guess for NFL GMs :/
    —————————————-
    I have said it plenty of times before, certain teams curn out NFL quality product from certain positions. UGA has always has turned out RB’s who are successful in the NFL.

  19. Tim Knight says:

    So being drunk and falling from a window is Nkeimeche’s red flag?

    • D says:

      Pretty much, his brother is a mess but the only really thing against Nkemdiche is the falling from a window thing.

      • D says:

        Against Robert Nkemdiche i mean. Denzel is the brother that is a mess. Sad because he is a decently talented LB/SS guy too.

      • Tim Knight says:

        He’s a talented player. I wouldn’t mind seeing him on our team. Do you think he could play DE?

  20. The Flying Pig says:

  21. The Flying Pig says:

  22. D says:

    Devontae Booker also opted out of the 40. Seems thats an event he woulda wanted to do.

  23. Al in MIA says:

    D,
    Yep, It’s my opinion that NFL teams can save themselves alot of time in scouting resources etc if they ride the knowledge of the college coach (use the coach as a proxy in scouting) who has the better eye for talent picking at a certain position. Sometimes NFL front offices, as what happens in other professions as well, think they are smarter than the person who ultimately is the source to the success of others.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I think a lot of that happens during the scouting process. Teams already have grades on prospects. The combine and pro days is the last chance to meet face to face.

  24. D says:

    Im becoming pretty set on Kenyan Drake as a RB prospect for us.

  25. Al in MIA says:

    Piggy,

  26. Al in MIA says:

    Flying Pig,
    Obviously that person has not seen this haircut

  27. The Flying Pig says:

    If you are drinking
    and your drunk friend does something stupid
    and you don’t do the same thing
    it shows good drunk judgment
    and drunk judgment is invaluable

  28. dbolt48 says:

    Tim,
    Nkemdiche has the talent to play any spot in a 4-3 front and the DE spots on a 3-4.

    • Tim Knight says:

      That’s what I think based on what I’ve seen from him. Where do you think he goes in the and why would one drunken college incident be such a red flag against him?

  29. getterdone says:

    Speaking of a guy like Mark Barron, is Sua Cravens from USC. He’s a hybrid S/OLB. Some experts have him as a Top 50 pick.

  30. The Flying Pig says:

  31. D says:

    Why settle for one bad haircut when you can have many!

  32. dbolt48 says:

    This is a great haircut!

    He’s a talented player. I wouldn’t mind seeing him on our team. Do you think he could play DE?
    ————————————–
    He and Bullard both are really plug and play at any position on the DL, same with Chris Jones out of Miss State. He also plays fullback and has a beauty of a catch and sideline tightrope run for a TD during last years sason. Think JJ Watt, put him where you want him and he can do it.

    Im becoming pretty set on Kenyan Drake as a RB prospect for us.
    ——
    I really like Paul Perkins from UCLA…what’s funny is that on nfldraftscout they both are right next each other on the RB ranks (8 & 9 w/ a 3-4 RD expected draft range).
    What I noticed about both these players is their great vision of seeing the LB & DB before they even get passed the LOS and how they set up their moves to make those guys miss or have them take bad angles and be out of position.

  36. getterdone says:

    Nothing has affected my opinion on Tunsil, in fact I like him more & more each week.
    I doubt he’s still on board @ #8 the way he’s getting talked up.
    If he is, I’d either trade down if the offers were good enough, or just say screw it, & take him. If he excels in OTA’s & TC, then we could actually waive bye to Albert, or have this be Albert’s last year with us.

  37. Al in MIA says:

    I saw Adam Schefter retweet this but talk about brothers from another mother …

    If only Henry had been like Myles Jack and played 2 ways (RB/DE) …maybe it’s not too late to be Myles Jack 🙂

    ——
    Some people are thinking about Duke S Jeremy Cash also possibly being a very good OLB candidate if he could somehow gain 20 lbs due to how well he plays around the LOS and behind it (or did while at Duke during run blitzes etc)

  39. The Flying Pig says:

    This was an unexpected surprise

  40. dbolt48 says:

    @FinsInsider: Ravens OLB Courtney Upshaw is expected to hit the market. He is best suited for a 3-4 scheme. Not great at rushing the passer.

  41. getterdone says:

    LMAO @ OV.

    Also, remember the Doo that Jeff Samuda had to wear?

  42. dbolt48 says:

    @nfldraftscout: 4.48 seconds for CJ Procise at 220 lbs is very, very good. He can catch the ball well too. Should show up in position drills

  43. D says:

    When i was revieiwng RB’s i thought Daniel Lasco looked pretty good but i read a lot of people who were pretty down on him so i just bailed out, since i already had several candidates i liked as several different draft tiers. He is showing up really good at combine. Prosise too, but i really dont see Prosise as anything but a tandem back.

  44. getterdone says:

    Gheyness!

  45. Tim Knight says:

    This dude is trying to come up with a name better than douche to describe himself.

  46. dbolt48 says:

    @nfldraftscout: FWIW, Robert Nkemdiche was asked if any other teammates were with him in the hotel. He didn’t just offer it up. https://t.co/2SSx5r0GRU

  47. D says:

    Watching the interview with Spence now. Im apretty impressed. Seems actually humbled and very straight forward. I am not sure how the interview went at Senior Bowl but this one was pretty good one.

    http://www.vikings.com/media-vault/videos/Combine-Presser-Eastern-Kentucky-DE-Noah-Spence/db569d1f-59a3-40a1-906a-84e09e860cd8

    • D says:

      Toward the end of the interview you could tell he was getting tired of the questions, but that was somewhat understandable, he got like 2 questions total regarding his playing ability and the rest was pure question after question about the drug use.

  48. getterdone says:

    Wonders why the judge won’t grant him bail.

  49. dbolt48 says:

    Don’t know if this guy is alive anymore😂

  50. getterdone says:

    Al, besides Keith Marshall’s 4.31 40 time, he led all RB’s with 25 reps, he also had a nice burst of 1.53 in the 10 yd split.

  51. D says:

    Bosa’s nose is friggin HUGE.

  52. getterdone says:

    NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock projects Arizona LB Scooby Wright as a third-round pick.
    The analyst also pegged Wright as a future NFL starter. Wright is a divisive prospect in the Zach Thomas, a Tasmanian devil tackling machine who doesn’t run in straight lines very fast. Pro Football Focus adores Wright, ranking him as the No. 23 prospect in the draft. “The question for Wright is his athleticism in space, but we’ve seen other linebackers stay productive with similar concerns,” concluded PFF.
    __________________________________
    Would be a good 3rd value pick up. Now I’m anxious to see his 40 time and his 10 & 20yd splits.

  53. D says:

    Braxton Miller can eat a dick, between his arrogance in his interview and the shit he did at senior bowl i wouldnt want that guy.

  54. Mike E. says:

    Bosa has a Roman nose. It’s roamin’ all over his face! Ba-dum-bum!

  55. dbolt48 says:

    @AbramsonPBP: UCLA’s Myles Jack: “A lot of teams are looking at me at Mike backer. I can definitely do that.”

    Tim how can you say that, he seems a quite considerate fellow, obviously he loves his women (or possibly men) very much, he made a heart for them to see no matter what direction they were facing him.

  57. D says:

    Halapoulivaati Vaitai, had the best broad jump score. 113.0

    • D says:

      Pretty damn good for a 310lb man. He was another guy who shut Ogbah down pretty well.

    • Al in MIA says:

      Interesting…. this does reflect great potential on run plays (burst off the line from a set stance) but I’ve never been able to figure out how the broad jump / vertical might be useful in analyzing potential of a guy walking backwards and defending a rusher on a pass play. The stat itself does tell you the leg and drive power for sure.

  58. dbolt48 says:

    @nfldraftscout: Mighty Mouse Corey Coleman did 20 reps of 225

  59. D says:

    Shit, Spriggs has been in the top of almost every exercise.

  60. D says:

    Conner McGovern showing really good lateral quickness with a 7.50 3 cone drill.

  61. getterdone says:

    The Broncos opened discussions with LT Ryan Clady on Friday.
    The Broncos are hoping to lower his salary for next year. They’re hoping to do the same with DeMarcus Ware. Clady sat out last season after tearing his ACL during OTAs. With Von Miller, Malik Jackson, Danny Trevathan and Brock Osweiler all headed for free agency, the Broncos will need as much cap space as possible.
    ___________________________
    No Clady, yet they still won the SB….lol. I wish we could get Trevathan, but Denver seems intent on resigning him.

  62. D says:

    Kenyan Drake 123.0 broad jump, good burst power.

  63. D says:

    Dixon, Henry, Lasco, Ervin, and Drake all showing really good, powerful lower body strength and explosive power.

    Posted: 3:49 p.m. Friday, Feb. 26, 2016

    INDIANAPOLIS – Former Georgia linebacker Jordan Jenkins interviewed with the Atlanta Falcons at the NFL scouting combine.

    “I met with the Falcons for a little bit,” Jenkins said on Friday. “I met with the Dolphins for a little bit. I think I met with about six or seven teams. You guys have to forgive me, I can’t remember them all. I have a good bit of teams that I’m meeting with tonight.”

    —————————————-
    OG’s dont always give ground off the snap on a pass play since their pass pro target is lined up a few inches away. You try to knock them back and then set into a defensive stance and wall off. If you are going backwards as an OG you have lost.

  69. Tim Knight says:

    It’s funny yesterday we were discussing how 40 times are not that important yet today everyone is posting them.

  70. D says:

  71. D says:

    Myles Jack said it would be awesome if he got drafted by the Vikings and re-united with Barr and Kendricks. I bet he wouldnt like the paycheck diference from being draft potentially by the Cowboys at 4 vs the Vikings at 23.

    • getterdone says:

      Maybe if Jack is still on the board when Miami is on the clock, the Vikings can come calling with a large booty matey.

  72. D says:

    Jason Spriggs combine so far. (53 OL participating)
    1st in 40
    4th in BP
    1st in Broad Jump
    tied for 16th in 3 cone.
    2nd in 20 yard shuttle.

    Dont know if the OL do the 40 yard shuttle or Vert jump but there are no scores for those for any of the OL so far.

  73. Brian in NY says:

    D,
    I heard an interview with Brothers on NFL Radio on my way home today. He sounded like a really nice guy.

    • D says:

      He is awesome man, i spent time talking with him at the meet and greet and after the game. He remembered me from the meet and greet and shook my hand before getting on the bus to leave. Really solid guy.

    • getterdone says:

      I’m thinking I like Brothers better than Ragland. Maybe it’s the fact that Bama has so many other good defenders around Reggie.

  74. getterdone says:

    They say Ragland showed up to the Combine down 12lbs. I wonder if that’s a weight he intends to maintain? I doubt it. He’s likely trying to show some quickness in the drills.

  75. olddolphan says:

    NIPPY HERE RIGHT NOW!! Think I’ll split a huge steak with Mrs. OD before walking the dogs. Our greyhound looking longingly at the grill!!!!!!

  76. D says:

    Damn Harlan Miller’s stock is soaring right now. He might be a 2nd-3rd rounder before the draft gets here.

    ———————————
    I have no doubt Ragland is the drafts best pure ILB, he has the combination of size, instincts and skills, but Brothers to me isnt far off and given there is about a full round difference in round evaluation i like the value of Brothers in the second over Ragland in the first, but thats also because i value drafting a CB over ILB in the first.

    • D says:

      Ragland is very nice as a person too. He spent a lot of time meeting with fans after the game and he was a freindly guy at the meet and greet, but when he has the uniform on, he is all business. You can tell even when he isnt on the field he’s watching and analyzing. I think he will be pretty good, maybe not quite as dominant right out the gate as CJ Mosley was, but i see Ray Lewis kinda ability in Ragland.

    • D says:

      He had a total of 3 missed tackles for the entire season last year including playoffs. Thats pretty ridiculous.

  78. getterdone says:

    Brian, good to see ya on. Haven’t seen ya much. Hope things are slowly getting better for you & yours.

    What’s your take on resigning OV and/or Miller? Seems to be mixed camps around here.

  79. The Flying Pig says:

    That would be a heck of a set of LBs for the Vikings

    But they might want to focus on DL

  80. getterdone says:

    NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reports Norte Dame LB Jaylon Smith is expected to miss the entire 2016 season.
    It rules him out as a first-round pick. Smith is dealing with nerve damage in his knee/ankle. He’s expected to redshirt as a rookie, but may never make a full recovery. A top-ten talent, Smith led Notre Dame in tackles the last two seasons.
    _______________________________
    If true, he’ll fall way further than just out of the 1st round. He could go the UDFA route.

    • D says:

      Doubt he goes UDFA, too much talent to just let it fall. There are teams out there with few enough needs who will pick him up and likely even be willing to part with a 2nd rounder for him. Some teams play with high level picks like most do with low level picks, we just dont know that feeling because we are never in the position to have such comfort in the draft.

      • getterdone says:

        Well, the words, ‘may never fully recover’ would be a No No if I’m GM. Hope we don’t have the same doctors we had when Coldpooper was being examined. 😉

  81. D says:

    Wow i just noticed Antonio Morrison got snubbed for the Combine too.

  82. steveccnv says:

    D, Denver is $12 mil under the cap we’re at $8 mil under, and they have way too many guys to sign.

  83. The Flying Pig says:

    What a shame if that is true about Smith

    Not fair at all

    😥

    • getterdone says:

      I saw the play it happend on in the endzone & I was thinking maybe just a badly hyperextension, maybe with some meniscus damage at worst.
      That does suck.

  84. D says:

    NFL.com had this to say about Demarcus Robinson and I pretty much agree with all of it, maybe even the comparison.

    STRENGTHS Talent jumps off the tape early in the session. Electric vertical talent that can make cornerbacks re­think their coverage plans. Has shake at the line of scrimmage to free himself against press coverage and has adequate ball tracking skills. Graceful, flexible athlete with instant turbo acceleration. Has ability to hit the home run after the catch. Races off the line and forced cornerbacks into retreat opening easy comeback catches. Has talent and ability to make a living outside or from the slot.

    WEAKNESSES Routes can be lazy at times. Will need to improve with selling fakes at break point of his routes as a pro. Too reliant on athleticism and speed over improvement of skill level. Hands are a concern with 11 drops to 106 catches at Florida. Plays smaller than his listed size. Suspended four times while at Florida. Scouts call him immature and selfish.

    SOURCES TELL US “I think he’s really, really talented but the guy has been suspended four times. You don’t get drafted very high when you are ‘Mr. Suspension’. I’ll probably be in that room fighting for him late though.” — NFL executive

    NFL COMPARISON Mike Wallace

    I feel really bad for Jaylon Smith. Poor guy, it’s very unfortunate what happened to him.

      Fucking last game of the year too, and not a game that realy meant much of anything but to showcase him for the NFL and instead it may have really limited his chances to make it.

    Brian, good to see ya on. Haven’t seen ya much. Hope things are slowly getting better for you & yours.

    What’s your take on resigning OV and/or Miller? Seems to be mixed camps around here.
    *
    Thanks GD. I’ve been really busy helping my mom out with everything, and catching up with work. My thoughts are to let Vernon walk (although the franchise tag and then trade him rumor is appealing) and re-sign Miller. I’ve always been a big fan of his, and as most have said he has been vastly under utilized. I think that he can be one of the best backs in the league if we used him correctly. Vernon is simply going to cost too much for us to keep him long term.

    • Tim Knight says:

      Brian, I hope you and your family are doing well, I know you had a lot of sadness and loss recently. All the best, man.

    • getterdone says:

      Ditto, my thoughts too. I remember standing next to you during the Fest as we watched Millertime rip off huge gains & score. The Phins score was like an old pinball machine going off. I turned to you and thought it was near halftime, & your like, hey, it’s still the 1st Qtr….lol.
      Guess we all were shocked to see so much scoring in the 1st half, let along the 1st damn quarter.
      Good times!

      Well, hang in there my friend. Thanks for the reply.

  95. Tim Knight says:

    I definitely feel if the top defenders aren’t there at #8, trading down is a good option. Because there are a lot of good defenders in the 1st that may be more teens range.

    That said, Tannenbaum when asked about the offseason, also mentioned trading up.

    If we traded up, which defender would you do it for? Bosa, Ramsey or Jack.

    • wyoming85 says:

      None
      All have replacements at the end of round 1
      Leonard Floyd, OLB/DE, Georgia
      Vonn Bell, SS/FS, Ohio State
      Darron Lee, OLB/ILB, Ohio State

    • getterdone says:

      Trading up? Ugh! Trade down or stay put in the 1st rd.

      But if forced to move up. It would be Jack, easy decision. Maybe this is the plan with Tagging OV, then trading him. 🙂

  96. Tim Knight says:

    Brian, remember Suh is only guaranteed $60M and they can cut his salary and defer into bonuses to create cap space.

    Having Suh on the team at that number along with Tannehill, Pouncey and Albert, makes it even more crucial we do a good job in FA and upgrade some positions and hit on a few impact guys in the draft. We’re set up to win soon. Let’s hope we have a Mets type season. 🙂

  97. Tim Knight says:

    It was just a scenario guys, play along. LOL

    I’d take Ramsey. I view him as an every down defender who you can play all over the place like a ‘rover’ and for matchups. He could play CB, S and LB. Once in the spread it really doesn’t matter what your position is called. Everyone has to rush or cover.

    • getterdone says:

      Jack is that guy too. Read where he’s even been lined up @ corner. Crazy good athlete.
      If I was to move up for a so called CB, it would have to be for a shutdown corner type, not a roving hybrid in the top 5 say.

      • Tim Knight says:

        I think Ramsey can do more than Jack. He’s not playing CB. LOL

        Ramsey could play base safety along with Jones which would be killer, could play some corner when we go to 5 and 6 DBs in a good matchup, and/or line up as a LB to blitz or drop. He played like that in college.

        I like Mack too and would not be bummed if he was the guy we wanted either. I’d take Ramsey.

      • getterdone says:

        Fair enough. I just see more 3 down value in Jack. Not saying Ramsey isn’t going to be a stud.

      • dbolt48 says:

        You go wide 9, your LB play is more vital than safety play. Both are important, but you need excellent LB play to make it go.

  98. getterdone says:

    Mets type of season? Phbbt!
    Let’s hope we have a Golden State Warriors type season. 😉

  99. Tim Knight says:

    Dbolt, you better have the quickness to play 9 wide. I know that’s what Schwartz is known for and brought it to DET with Suh. If you’re not quick enough in that defense you’ll get torn up.

    This has nothing to do with Ramsey vs. Jack. Both guys are fits, we better add a few more fits. Especially DE.

  100. Tim Knight says:

    If we’re going to play a 9 wide defense, we need more speed on defense. It’s a 5-2 DEF. Bill Arnsparger is the creator of the 5-2 defense which morphed into the 3-4.

    LDE Wake – needs to be at worst a situational pass rusher, that’s his bread and butter.
    LDT Suh – is a dominant force, we all know who he is.
    RDT Phillips – a mountain of a man who can move and has upside.
    RDE Mitchell – to penetrate with a non stop motor.
    Edge ? – weak/blind side off the corner guy

    LB Jenkins
    LB?

    CB Grimes
    CB?
    S Jones
    S ?

    It’s a 5-7 rush attack system.

    • Tim Knight says:

      When Vance Joseph said Suh was double and triple teamed and he has ways of how to avoid that, this is what he was talking about.

      Wake – lines up outside the RT.
      Suh – lines up over the RG.
      Phillips – lines up between the C and LG.
      Mitchell – lines up between the LG and LT.
      Edge ? – lines up outside the LT.

      LB Jenkins – read and react and attack.
      LB? – read and react and attack.

      • getterdone says:

        That’s one of the ways, but you can’t be in that all the time. Funny, we went from what we thought was a plethora of DE’s, to nearly bare cupboards now.

        Dion FF, busted.
        OV is a UFA commanding too much money.
        Shelby is UFA
        Wake got old & injured at the same time…lol
        Fede didn’t grow in 2015, nor did Chris McCain

        Then we ignored the LB unit. Waiting on a couple UDFA’s to make the jump in the 2nd year.
        The vets Sheppard & Paysinger aren’t worth much.
        Misis is over paid.

        Grimes got old on us.
        Taylor can’t get up & flying.
        Davis was dealt.
        Brice McCain was cut.
        Rest are late round rookies & UDFA.

      • getterdone says:

        Oh, and Delmas is likley gone for good this time. Aikens hasn’t shown much.
        Tbomb, Grier, Gase, & Vance has their work cut out for him.

      • jetsssuck says:

        If you watch the last three games of season you will see Suh lining up outside of the LT in passing downs. You will also notice the great pressure that Phillips provided during the latter part of the season. If you back to the beginning of the season and watch his presnap stance you will understand why he was playing at a pro bowl level at the end of the season.

  101. getterdone says:

    NFL Network’s Albert Breer compares Notre Dame LB Jaylon Smith’s nerve damage to ex-South Carolina RB Marcus Lattimore’s injury coming out of college.
    Lattimore, of course, never played in an NFL game after 49ers GM Trent Baalke blew a fourth-round pick on him during San Francisco’s failed “redshirt” phase. Other medical analysts have likened Smith’s nerve damage to that of Peyton Manning’s. Manning’s nerve “woke back up.” It’s unclear if Smith’s will.

  102. Tim Knight says:

    GD, the 9 wide is an aggressive defense that attacks and doesn’t react to what the opponent is doing. Of course we’ll mix it up. But it’s a defense that needs specific talent or it’s a vulnerable defensive scheme.

    Dick LeBeau’s 3-4 zone-blitz scheme is legendary and the wide 9 is a version of it in the 5-2 scheme via a 4-3 base.

    At the end of the day it’s about talent. Our defense will be built around what Suh does well. It’s not about helping poor Suh. It’s about how to let Suh be dominant. It’s really difficult to double or triple anyone on the DL in the wide 9.

    • getterdone says:

      I know what it is. That’s why I listed the lack of talent we really have right now. This draft & FA will or should be heavily for defense.
      Grier said he wanted to get more physical, but they better make sure it’s physical speed as well in most areas.

      • Tim Knight says:

        We need at least one really good overall LB but what about Edge Rusher and DB?

        We need an influx of talent at like 3 spots. LOL

      • steveccnv says:

        Tim, we may not need an edge rusher, if we can keep our guys like OV and Wake. I really don’t see either one of them leaving, because Ross won’t let them, unless OVs demand is just ridiculous. Tannebaum to Ross, Stephen we’re going to have to part ways with OV, our salary cap is too tight. Ross to TB, can it be done? TB, yes. Ross, ok get it done.

        Ross isn’t going for a rebuild, he wants to win now.

  103. D says:

    Did driskell just run a 4.5?

  104. D says:

    I heard mayock say that some people consider driskell the Kirk cousins of this draft. Mid round guy who will need to come in and be coached up some but has starting ability

  105. D says:

    Tim I think we can get for sure starters from first thee rounds this year and I hope to have at least a LB DE and CB in those rounds. I keep saying CB is the most important to start with because it’s the thinnest class so my preference on order is CB LB DE though I think it will really just matter in the second who is still sitting there. Best DE/LB available in second.

  106. olddolphan says:

    D: RE: Jeff Driskell’s 4.5 40 time. “Wish his passing was more like his running. LOL.” –Jeff isn’t even the best passer in his family –That award belongs to his younger brother, JASON DRISKELL, the projected starter for Florida Atlantic this coming season. Jason came into the Miami-FAU game last season and led the Owls to consecutive touchdown drives on his first two series after FAU’s starter, Jacquez Johnson, was knocked out of the game in the first quarter. Johnson reclaimed his starting job in game 2 and got most of the starting snaps the rest of the year. But, in my opinion, young Mr. Driskell was FAU’s best passer and proved it the final game of the season when he led FAU to a comeback victory.
    ———–
    JASON DRISKELL and UM’s BRAD KAAYA will renew their rivalry the second week of the college season when FAU travels to SUN BAKED STADIUM September 11 to play Mark Richt’s Hurricanes. While casual football fans may assume that MIAMI will win easily, my response is “NOT SO FAST, MY FRIENDS!” FAU will return a HUGE offensive line, a couple of stud running backs, and a group of experienced wide receivers who will definitely challenge Miami’s secondary. –I LOOK FOR a wide-open, exciting, big play game that will go down to the fourth quarter, as it did last season. While many will tune-in to see the highly touted Brad Kaaya, I’m going to tell you right now the BEST QUARTERBACK ON THE FIELD WILL BE JASON DRISKELL!

    At the 5:10 mark Suh is doubled initially, because Wake is running an inside stunt. I hope this is the type of thing Joseph was talking about when he said, they’ve got ways of freeing up Suh.

    I hope Wake comes back and helps the team with a restructure. JT seems to think Tannebaum will find a way to keep OV. I only write OV instead of spelling out, because it’s easier, after hearing Chris Perkins say it during group interviews makes me want to puke.

  108. steveccnv says:

    Reports out of SF say Kaep wants out, other reports say Kelly finally has a QB that fits his system. What have they been watching, Kaep trying to get a play off within 20 seconds would be like asking a guy with 2 broken arms to tie his shoes in under 10 seconds.

    While at NV Kaep ran the no huddle a lot, and at crunch time when trailing with not much time left he rarely got the ball snapped with more than 7 or 8 seconds left on the play clock. It used to drive me nuts.

    ———-
    Have faith, Bruce, in Steve Ross. He’s ALWAYS right!!

    • Tim Knight says:

      Yet it took 3 more years for other teams to see that in Bowles. Everyone seems to think Bowles became a HC at the same time as Philbin. He was a first time HC last year.

  111. Tim Knight says:

    Jetssuck, do you mean Suh was lining up outside the RT? I don’t remember Suh ever lining up outside the LT.

  112. Tim Knight says:

    Steve, see my 8:17 post. I said we’re in a win soon mode. But that doesn’t mean I would treat OV like he’s some elite pass rusher because he’s not. There are already reports Wake is willing to restructure so I do believe he’ll be back. It also sounds like he’s healing well from the Achilles injury.

  113. olddolphan says:

    Tim says “everyone seems to think Bowles became a HC the same time as Philbin. He was a first time head coach last year.” WRONG TIM. NOBODY believes Bowles became a HC the same time as PHILBIN. People with accurate memories will tell you Bowles replaced Sparano and took the Fins to a 2-1 mark BEFORE PHILBIN WAS HIRED AS HC.
    ———
    DROP your pro-Ross, anti-Bowles agenda and STUDY THE FACTS, TIM. Face it, the Ross/Philbin defenders have no case!! And neither DO YOU!!!

    • The Flying Pig says:

      I think Tim means that Bowles was an interim defensive coach and the DC for AZ before getting the HC job for the jests

      So it’s not like the NFL was clamoring to make a HC in the NFL
      A lot of teams didn’t hire him for coaching vacancies

      I think we had the inside track to retain Bolwes
      But it’s not like the league was competing to give him a HC job

      If you remember the guy we went after and lost to was Jeff Fisher
      And you will be the first to tell us that was bc fisher didn’t want to work with Ireland
      And Ross should have fired Ireland

      So that said, what would have Todd Bowles done with the Dolphins working with Ireland?

      For what it’s worth I think Ross made a mistake not taking Bowles seriously as a candidate
      And that’s not just hindsight – plenty of Dolfans favored hiring after he went 2-1
      But keep it in perspective
      No one thought Todd Bowles would be a better hire than Fisher at the time
      And we really don’t know what Bowles is yet
      Give him a couple of years before you judge him

    • Tim Knight says:

      You’re the one with an anti-Ross agenda, I’m just pointing out the facts. Bowles was never even a coordinator until he went to ARZ. So you think a 2-1 record as an interim HC after being the secondary coach is some big deal?

      My point also has nothing to do with Philbin. But you’re so locked in your agenda that you can’t discuss anything without bashing Ross and Philbin. Philbin is gone and he earned it because his team was going in the wrong direction. He finished the 2014 season 1-3 and started 2015 1-3 which is a 2-6 record over those 8 games. I agreed with his firing. I said at 1-2 after that horrible loss to the Bills that if we lose the Jets game we’re going to see a lot of changes and that’s what happened.

      But why wasn’t Bowles hired as a HC in 2012, 13, or 14 if he was the great HC candidate at the time? I guess a lot of owners looking for a HC during that time screwed up.

      If you ask Jets fans about Bowles, they’ll tell you he’s the one that screwed up the last game against the Bills to make the playoffs. But that doesn’t matter as long as we can hold it against Ross that he didn’t hire the great Bowles. You can be sure if Bowles screwed up our chance to make the playoffs last game of the year that many fans would already be asking for him to be fired. That’s how it works here. LOL

  117. Tim Knight says:

    And Fisher has basically been just as successful as Philbin in STL. Fisher hasn’t had a winning season in his last 6 years as a HC going back to his last two in TEN and four with STL.

    • steveccnv says:

      He’s been overrated his entire career, he had a couple of good seasons, because of McNair. Funny how coaches get credit for having a great QB, then when they don’t have that they suck.

      The QBs always go higher than they should if there is a glimmer of hope that they could be a franchise QB. That’s the key to a top defensive prospect falling to us. That and Tunsil and Stanley going before we pick.

      If Ramsey, Bosa and Jack are gone when we’re up at #8, trading down is a possibility if a QB or another coveted prospect is available for a team to trade up. I think the WR Treadwell could be that guy for a team needing and wanting a go-to-type WR because he might be the only 1st rd WR. There’s plenty of defensive prospects available in the middle of the 1st round.

    Jetssuck, do you mean Suh was lining up outside the RT? I don’t remember Suh ever lining up outside the LT.
    Reply
    ————————————————————————————
    Yes,he lined up over the LT on passing downs during the last 3 games. It freed up him to take on less 2x and triple teams until teams used help for the LT, but he was very effective because he less OL double teaming him. He had double teams but they were only by getting chipped by RB’s and TE’s.

    To answer my question earlier about Philips playing like a pro Bowler later in the season because of his pre snap alignment it’s because he changed the presnap to like Suh uses when he lines up in the “sprinters runner box stance” with one hand and uses the other hand to the first punch while using footwork to gain the leverage. I think he gets his power from pushing off from his “sprinter box stance”when he get’s low which can be hard for a person that tall 6’5 or 6’6 but he manages to gain tremendous power that knocks OL off their BOTH feet which is a big no-no for OL.

    • Tim Knight says:

      I don’t ever remember Suh lining up at RDE. Where did OV play?

      I think Phillips is a stud in the making.

      • getterdone says:

      • jetsssuck says:

        Both lined up on left tackle side. OV didn’t do much but Suh gained a big advantage, but I don’t know what OV assignment was. It may have been to occupy blockers to free Suh.

  125. Tim Knight says:

    GD, yes on the WTF with Phillips but it was a value pick. We had a 1st rd grade on Phillips. I think he’s going to be a beast and with Suh on the other side that’s SWEET!!!!

We were told the primaries before super tuesday was not going to determine the race for the nomination.

      • Tim Knight says:

        Trump seems to have a comfortable lead though. NJ Gov. Christie already gave Trump his endorsement. He’s likely to become AG in Trump’s cabinet.

        I know people have a lot of fears with Trump and I think a lot of it is overblown, it’s election time so smear campaigns are in full swing against all the candidates.

        The thing I’m intrigued by is Trump and Christie (not VP) get the GOP closer to a moderate party then where they are. There is no place that makes sense in 2016 for an extreme right wing party just like there isn’t a place for a hardcore socialist in America. That’s not who we are.

        The world needs to get away from dictators in general. You either believe in freedom or you don’t. Not that Trump is the best candidate for this, but he might be the only one who is really viable in the big picture to get it started.

      • getterdone says:

        Yep, the financial backing of guys like Rubio, Cruz, Berny & Hillary are huge. Jeb had it too, but as you mentioned, they bailed on him since Trump scared him & his brother about the classified missing 28 pages on the 9/11 report.
        So now there monies are going to the candidates above, both Dem & GOP. You know, the ones they can control. Puppets on a string.

  133. getterdone says:

    Tim, yes Trump is the way to go….IMO
    Main reason is he’s got the global elitists, the longtime establishment pissing in their pants. Even Mexico, now China’s leaders are already trashing him, as well as the elites here in the US, like the Bush & Clinton crime families.

    I fear for his life now. Others have been taken out when they push back against the cabal.

    Also, watch for yet another rigged election, starting with a brokered convention. This is already in play with the establishments’ boy Rubio, since Jeb couldn’t muster even a whisper. They’ve also pulled Romney now out of the dust balls in case Rubio continues to get smacked around by Trump.

    BTW, this was never about a 2 party system, a left, moderate, or right candidate. The powers that be are one system, one party. The GOP & Dem thingy is a ruse for the sheep to squabble over, while wondering why nothing ever changes, but for the worst as the social & economic class divide widens.

      Well… why was Trump center stage flanked by Rubio and Cruz with Carson and Kasich as secondary thoughts? It was so obvious to me. That was absolutely rigged.

      • getterdone says:

        Correct. The establishment knows Carson & Kasich have no chance. So they are circling the wagons around Rubio & Cruz now that golden boy Jeb got the stink finger by Trump. Glad to see many voters out there have woken up!
        Wait till they see this rug get pulled out from under their feet when the convention starts.. Let the funny business begin, with the counting of delegates & “Super” delegates….smh!

    GD, if you remember, I have used a term my friend coined that the two party system is a ‘duopoly’. I get that. I have also said our evolution will take us to the planet being more united then ever to explore the new frontier. Our existence as a species is reliant on expanding territories. That’s what all creatures try to do and they adapt. The new frontier is other planets.

    I know this is far out and heavy, man. But humans need to get out of the dark ages and join 2016.

    We shouldn’t be regulating each other more, it should be less.

    • getterdone says:

      Right, and the duopoly that exists here is really a form of oligopoly. Greed, power, & control. We are subtly being herded decade by decade to be the minions of the ruling class.
      They’ve done a good job. Many us us don’t even notice as we become comfortable with our quaint lil daily, weekly, yearly routines. 😉

      As far as establishing colonies on other planets, well good luck with that. TPTB want it, but I don’t think it’s feasible.
      Many even dispute if we really put a man on the moon or not. 😉

      • Tim Knight says:

        Bro, the planet thing will come long after we’re all gone. Think about you in 1980 and then in 2016? Well think about 2016 to 2052. You think they’ll be any new technology? 🙂

    After reading some earlier posts I am lead to believe that all these guys coming out are alcoholics, drug addicts, and criminals…
    This league is in a world of shit!

    I really don’t see anything in trump
    I think he would be the worst thing to happen to this country if he was in office

    He’s run his campaign like an episode of the apprentice

    The guy is just an egomaniac

    Rubio was trying to nail him on that “trump university” scandal
    But he barely go to talk about it as they screamed at each other in the debate

    Trump set up a university called “trump university”
    It’s not a real university it’s not a credited school

    It’s a was a “unoversity” where young naive real estate entrepreneurs were told they would be taught all the ins and outs of the real estate business

    They took at loans and went 10a of thousands of dollars in debt
    And they never got anything in return

    Many of the students died him

    But more importantly the ny attorney general has sued him calling it classic bait and switch

    He stole a lot of $ from a bunch of young people who look up to him
    It’s not much different than bankruptcy of the AC casinos
    Or being fined 1m for hiring polish illegal immigrants

    Trump is a national embarrassment
    He would sell his mother if it made him a profit

    I know you many of you hate the establishment and the 2 party system
    So do I
    Trump may appear to be an outsider – but frankly Runio, Cruz, Clinton & Sanders
    They all deserve credit for a lifetime commitment to public service

    While they were doing that trump was getting just amassing wealth for himself
    He has never done anything for the public interest
    Now all the sudden he has an interest in politics

    His candidacy is just for his own ego

    We need leaders who care about our country’s future
    Not there own ego

    I would encourage you guys to rethink Trump
    IMO the guy is a crook

    Wait to you see he Noah spence scouting report

  138. The Flying Pig says:

    I actually scheduled the Noah spence to run tonight at 8
    Cause I’m tired of this blog already

    If you want to see a movie discuss the faking of the moon landing

    I suggest ROOM 237

    Room 237 is a documentary about Stanley Kubrick and the Shining

    And what the documentary does is breakdown the film and takes a look at the subliminal messages and symbolism

    One of the theories proposed is that the Shining is actually Stanley Kubricks confessions that he was hired to fake he moon landing

    It makes The Shining even creepier than the movie already was…lol

    • getterdone says:

      The whole Van Allen radiation belt that’s 25K miles long and Nasa years later after they kinda forgot about the lunar landing, saying that a human being could not pass through it without being burned up….Oops.
      That made me go, wait a minute now????
      Plus the fact that since the 60’s no country has ever returned to the ‘moon”, now with superior technology. Why???

      • The Flying Pig says:

        I tend to beleive it was real

        I’m just suggesting you check out that documentary

        Kubrick made 2001 before the Landing
        And the suggestion is that the govt recruited him

    Piggy, Trump University is a tiny part of who DT (lol) is. Let’s spend all day discussing this. That is the propaganda approach. We all know who Trump is for 40 years. Now he’s a rabid racist and bigot? Please! It’s election time.

    Liberals are dumb too. They will do and say anything to discredit their opponent in the name of their glory one. I mean please. It’s disgusting.

    Trump is who we know he is, don’t get caught up in the hype. Don’t be surprised if Alec Baldwin runs 4 years from now. That’s where we’re headed.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      It’s not a small part of who he is Tim

      It’s exactly who he is
      A lot of people in his own party hates him

      If he is elected, this country has truly hits it’s lowest point

      Trump University is flat out fraud and exploiting young people and it should not be undermined

      • Tim Knight says:

        I know, I don’t like Trump as a person. He’s a doer though. My thinking is he reforms the GOP even if they hate it. It’s a dirty business. The Republican Party is at a crossroads. The extreme right needs to go.

        In the best interest of the country, say no to government controlling your life. 🙂

  141. The Flying Pig says:

    BTW

    New blog up

  142. getterdone says:

    Piggy, yes, on Trump. He has his warts, as we all do. Personally, I think he’s a weird looking, braggadocious ass.
    But he got tired of seeing this country being sold to the highest bidder, and not a government of the people, by the people, & for the people.
    He’s an outsider in a sense. The Bush’s, Clinton’s, Rubio’s, Cruz’s were groomed into their roles. Where did they really deserve credit for? And what lifetime of service???

    It sickens me every time I see a pic of Dubbya Bush walking around holding hands with his Saudi buddies. Yeah, the ones that his family is in business with> Yeah, the ones that he & Jeb got flown out of the country on 9/11 after all other air traffic was ordered to halt. Yeah, the Saudis that have a horrendous human rights record.

    Time for a non-coddled bought Pol to take a seat at the helm. If Trump got elected, then he can surround himself with the best, sincere, honest, non-corrupt cabinet in the country. That would set us on the right course. That and a complete overhaul of the longtime legislation, err potted plants.

  143. getterdone says:

    Time to shake it up. This BS has been going on for decades!
    I think Trump is the only one asshole with tht balls & willing to do it. Believe me, I’ve researched this a lot, before I go spouting off at the mouth.
    I’m not going to fall in line with the narrative, and seemingly, neither is Trump.
