    For the Deonte Brown crowd. It will be his ability to engage in a block, disengage and then have the feet to slide over and block the blitzing or stunting player. The pulling aspect is almost never an issue with draftable college linemen.

    LOL

    I will be here for the "Why isn't Vance Joseph playing Caleb Farley over Dre Kirkpatrick" threads in 9 months.

    Another raw freak athlete for Vance to waste. :)

    Which CB? Other than Surtain who is surely gone I'm just not feeling it with any of the others.

    He’s not raw though my man. He already has good technique & can play the ball in the air, & he’s only gonna get better. He’s not like a Derion Kendrick(he’s returning back to school now)

    The thought of another rookie cb as starter is enough to give me nightmares after what happened with Murphy. Worse if P2 leaves & we have rookie start alongside a Dre Kirkpatrick or similar Keim time special :bang:

    interestingly, the Cards will not be alone in the NFC West

    almost certain this is true: Jalen Ramsey will be the only starting CB in the NFC west under contract going into the offseason

    We hope a "Planet Person" falls to us at #16 and draft him.

    A planet person (a concept created by Giant GM George Young) picks up on the theory that "there are only so many players on the planet who are big enough or fast enough or strong enough" - & you do whatever it takes to get one of those.

    It's kind of a refinement of a BPA drafting philosophy. Guys like Aaron Donald, Simmons, B Baker and PP21 (& K Murray) are planet people.

    When it comes to the first two rounds, I firmly believe in drafting guys with a high floor rather than picking guys with the highest ceiling. I think you have to minimize risk in the first two rounds make sure you get a guys that won't wash out. Take a risk and swing for the fences in later rounds.

    Over emphasis on guys with a high ceiling, but not necessarily a high floor leads to drafting guys like Nkemdiche and Reddick.

    Mmm, I guess keim started to draft with this criteria, getting al those prospects with higher pff grades, and didn't work as well, an example Isabella

    Two things stand out here for me, one how will he handle speed rushers at that weight and two wearing knee braces on both knees is not endearing to me.

    @DVontel would know for sure re: Alabama but some colleges mandate their offensive linemen to wear knee braces.

    No round 4 pick. I’d sign a vet.

    maybe tap the breaks on the Deonte Brown bandwagon

    this drill is stacked against the offensive player, but still.....

    Nice videos of D Brown. Laughing to myself right now visualizing Brown pulling and rounding the corner and seeing some DB (like Deonne Sanders) running up the stairs into the stands to get away from him.
