    Its different this year though. Very little buzz about who any team likes.

    With no combine, and most pro days attended by scouts or assistants the media aren't picking up the player buzz like normal.

    The only thing we have consistently heard is the media is way off on the evaluations this year AND guys are getting dinged for opting out.

    When the media think the Niners want Mac Jones at #3 you know they are disconnected

    The CB from Kentucky. His name escapes me but he’s pretty damn good. I think he’ll go much earlier than mocked.

    Btw, Freiermuth is going at 49. I’m demanding that :cheers:

    Kelvin Joseph? I've seen him mocked to us in the 2nd a few times.

    S Richie Grant... Some view him as top single high FS. I could see him sneaking into the end of the first

    LB Jamin Davis. Very high ceiling

    WR Rondale Moore. I can see Saints or Chiefs loving him

    I once saw a man actually bend over to pick up a penny which was laying on the sidewalk. He sprained his back while bending to pick it up. I have never forgotten that. It sort of sums up my life as an NFL draft pundit.

    Thus, I will suggest the following: There will be no C, RB, or S drafted in R1. More WRs than QBs will be drafted in R1. And finally, the first Cardinal's pick will leave us all scratching our heads.

    Kelvin Joseph. Solid corner. Was a 4* coming out of high school, chose LSU, played quite a bit his freshman year, then transferred to Kentucky, sat out a year, then started this past season at Kentucky. Wouldn't break my heart if we get him in the 2nd round.

    I thought about Jamin Davis too. I think he's better than the media have him ranked, but also quite a lot of teams need ILB quite badly.

    Another kid I quite like later is Ambry Thomas. Had a nice pro day. Ran a 4.35 with a great VJ and BJ. Only started one year and sat out last year so limited tape but if there in the 5th could be a steal.

    So that's why my ears get itchy at night sometimes. Sure explains it.

    Many report it because it's the "buzz" out of the SF camp but don't really believe it.

    I think it was nonsense just because they went to watch Mac Jones, as anyone in the QB hunt would. Now they went to see Fields it's "Oh Fields is the guy".

    If Shanny went to watch Beyonce then Beyonce would be the QBOTH.

    Lazy media inventing stories.
