  1. How do you guys/gals feel about the draft?

    Keep in ming the year we drafted Ben, Cowher was pounding the table for Stacy Andrews, and it finally took Dan Rooney telling him to shut up and let Colbert make the call for us to pass on Andrews and take Ben.
  2. How do you guys/gals feel about the draft?

    1, not really. Shazier made more splash plays sure, but Bush mad some difficult chase down open field tackles look easy. 2, take a look at how much NFL talent was on that OSU defense, Bush did not. Shazier was able to stay incredibly clean and Bush played through tons of muddied situations 3, tied to point 2, they had very different defensive schemes. OSU has the interior of their line hold blocks while Mich has interior guys attack.
  3. How do you guys/gals feel about the draft?

    Depends how you use the 40. If you are looking at more than the 10 yd split for DL/OL you use it wrong. RB/WR the 10 yards split can tell you about how well they can get up to speed, and 20-40 split can tell you about pull away speed. For CB's/S's the 20-40 split can tell you about closing speed.
  4. How do you guys/gals feel about the draft?

    Explosiveness, strength, flexibility, balance.
  5. How do you guys/gals feel about the draft?

    Going down the list more: Shazier arms: 32 3/8. Bush arms: 32 1/8 Shazier hands: 10". Bush Hans 9 5/8" Shazier Vert: 42". Bush Vert 40.5" Shazier broad: 130" Bush broad 124" Shazier 3 cone 6.91. Bush 3 con 6.93 There really is not much of a difference between them.
  6. How do you guys/gals feel about the draft?

    Shazier at the combine was 6011, 225 Bush at the combine 51175, 234 Barely over an inch difference. If we want to call Bush Tiny, Shazier was extremely underweight.

    Eh....I don't care. It's going to be a story all year long of "life without AB". I think stuff like this and players making comments about how much the lookerroom is different are things they should do at times. I think why they posted this one, AB posted him working out with all the Raiders WR's and wrote "some just don't want to put in the work".

    Y’all see Juju take a shot at AB on Snapchat? Posted a short vid of himself and Switz lifting in the team gym, and said “you don’t need to post about yourself working out, in fact the ones who do work the least.” And Switz chimed in saying “First in last out means lots of standing around.” Talk about shots fired.

    I want to quote this because people tend to forget there are 5 types of sacks: Busted protection Beat the man Coverage Overload Schemed We didn't get many beat the man or coverage sacks last year. Coverage sacks is what can allow you to 'expose' a guy like Dupree as not that great. But when he's getting good snaps and the ball is out by the time he engages the OT, you can't judge how good or poor of a pass rusher he is.

    Consistency has more to do with what's between the ears than what the player is physically capable of.

    Last two years: Von Miller: $30million, 24 sacks, $1.25 million per sack Bud Dupree: $7.2million, 11.5 sacks, $626k per sack Pass rushers are massively overpaid. Prorating the money, you pay more per sack for elite pass rushers than you do non-elite pass rushers. Von Miller has a cap hit of $25.5million this year and averages 10 sacks a year. Bud Dupree is making $9million and averages 5 sacks a year. In the grand scheme of things, what Dupree is making isn't 'that much' of an overpay.

    Who knows. Maybe Patricia starts using players in roles rather than in general. And I'm not using him/them as a comparison. You need to stop going to that well so easily. There's a chance that Dupree goes to a team that does use him differently and he's successful.

    Buds the type of player that ends up in NE on a cheap 3 year deal, gets used right, and everyone wonders how he became a FA.
