Not a fan personally. Think he is inconsistent and will not be as imposing physically in the NFL. Not playing this year will hurt him as I think more teams will have wanted to see more. His combine numbers may change that and he is definitely a top 60 guy already so it isn't that he is awful, I just don't like the spot compared to other players.I kind of think Jay Tufele could be a dark horse pick for us
I disagree with the inconsistent part, but I see your point with everything else.Not a fan personally. Think he is inconsistent and will not be as imposing physically in the NFL.

I really like Kenneth Gainwell. He is exactly what we need. He does everything that we want a RB to do in our offense. Good vision. Can take it to the house. Can catch without need to sub in Chase. He has good vision and hits the holes with excellent timing. He always seems to be running downhill.
Watch his highlights and just look at his style of running.
I don't know that our roster can facilitate taking a RB that high, but he will be a good one.
I really think we should be giving Edmonds starting snaps to see if he can be the guy. I think he can.
I disagree. Edmonds is a great change of pace/back-up RB. He doesn't have bell cow traits and I don't see how that will change (we would have seen it at this point).
Yes, another coaching staff drafted Daniel Jones recently. 22 starts. 7 wins. 32 TDs to 21 Ints & 28 fumbles, 16 lost.Did I miss something re: Giants? Didn't they just use a R1 pick on their QB of the future? I am not sure, but I would make sure their OL is solid. If not, I would think they would lean that way, or maybe even trade back a bit and then go OL. But what do I know?
Jayson Oweh is my guy. As much as I like the idea of bolstering our interior o-line, I can't watch this dude and not feel like in a couple years people will wonder how he fell in the draft.Forgot to mention that Zaven is a ILB, not OLB.
If Ojulari declares, I don’t think he’ll make it to us honestly. Dude is gonna blow up the combine with production to back it up.
Would love Oweh, but folks that don’t follow CFB heavy here gonna hate that pick cause of production, lol.
Also warmed up to Ojulari a lot. Think he’s different than previous UGA pass-rushers. @Chopper0080
I feel like this is a chicken little post.I'm not sure if people realize how ugly this off season is going to look.
If the cap is reduced to $175m, which seems likely, then we only have $22m cap space and only 31 players.
Lets say we pick #20 in the draft. We need $5m of that for the rookie draft pool and in my opinion must include a OLB, CB and RB capable of starting right away. We also need a low round WR with speed that can do what Isabella can't.
So let's say $17m and 36 players, in fact lets be generous and say 40 players with 4 UDFA's making the roster.
We can cut Robert Alford and save $7.5m. That's likely. But I don't see how we can afford to keep Pat Pete around other than on a ******** contract thats heavily backloaded and screws us in future years. So might they keep Alford as vet experience for a drafted rookie?
But lets bin Alford. So $24.5m and 39 players.
At this point Larry, Pat, Drake, Campbell, Sweezy, Golden, Peters, Reddick, Zane, Lee, Kirkpatrick, Beachum, Banjo, Hundley, Joseph, Blackson, Vallejo, Garcia, Arnold, Daniels, Sherfield, Gardeck, Washington, Zeke Turner and some lesser names are all gone.
And we have $24.5m. Only CJ, Kennard and a drafted rookie at Edge. No CB's other than Murphy and a rookie. A depleted D line. No real backup QB. No starting running back outside Edmonds and a rookie. No kicker. No punter. Only 1 Tight End. Only 2 ILB's (3 if Weaver makes the roster). Only 3 safeties. Only 5 WR's. And all 4 of our best ST guys are gone.
And we have $24.5m to fix it. Good luck with that Keim.
This is also why Reddick isn't getting tagged and there is absolutely no chance Larry is coming back on 1 year for $11m. Or any money frankly, unless he just wants to keep playing in Arizona and he decides to do it for vet min.
We need a crazy good draft just to have a chance of being average.
I feel like this is a chicken little post.
I have put this in other threads but, we can get to 40 mil pretty easily.
Corey Peters re-signs for like 3.5.
Markus Golden 4.5 with an initial year hit of 2.
Dan Arnold 5, but it will be a multi-year deal so the 1st year will be around 2 or 3.
Vallejo was paid 800k this year and if we want him back, shouldn't cost much more.
Blackson, Daniels, Washington, Banjo and Garcia are roughly 900k and same.
Gardeck, Sherfield and Turner are RFAs so they are cheap.
So, we lose Sweezy, Beachum, Campbell, Zane, Lee, Kirkpatrick and Hundley. But, Sweezy, Beachum, Hundley, and Campbell's replacements are already on the roster.
That leaves us with questions on Larry, Drake, Peterson, Reddick and our P & K with a bit above 20 mil to go. Any multi year deal given can make this much easier.
Larry shouldn't make 11 again.
If Drake wants more than 5 they probably let him test the market.
Pat probably wants a 3 year deal so that 1st year number would be low.
The Cardinals will likely approach Reddick with a similarly structured deal to the one they gave The Captain. Low initial year and then big guarantee year 2. If he passes they put the transition tag on him for 13.
I doubt they give big deals to both a P and a K next year. So count 3 mil for both combined.
So, meh...I'm not too worried. I am not a paid cap specialist and I can get us to pretty much resigning everyone except guys who we have replacements for, a mediocre RB, and two aging vets.
We currently sit at 24 mil.First off, how are you getting from $19.5m to $40m "pretty easily"?
I agree to a point. I think he could handle a 55% snap role over the course of a season but we will still need another back to fill in. A draft pick isn't going to eliminate that and competition is healthy.He cannot take the pounding, that's proven but he's excellent in his role now
Most of the teams in the league will be in the same boat or worse, some MUCH worse, so there will be a huge glut of veterans willing to sign cheap one-year deals or backloaded deals.I'm not sure if people realize how ugly this off season is going to look.
We need a crazy good draft just to have a chance of being average.
We currently sit at 24 mil.
We will cut Robert Alford and that gives us 7.5 mil more. 31.5.
We will restructure or cut Chandler Jones. I think we will extend him and reduce his cap hit from 20.8 to 10. That opens up 10.5 mil and brings us to 42.
Cutting Devon Kennard, if we needed to, gives us an additional 4.25 and then cutting Gilbert opens up and additional 1 mil (rounding up). So, without really stretching we can get to 47 mil.
