You know what you get from Grady Jarrett, but they need a playmaker next to him. If not Simmons, maybe one of the Clemson DLs in the 2nd round or use that pick on DreMont Jones..But they have to address their defensive line. Quinn pretty much fired his whole staff. He's next if they go 7-9 again
    That is why I made the comment. Blank did not like getting burned by Vick (he appears to have forgiven him but not forgotten). I am hoping more and more teams overdraft for a QB or other positions allowing some of the better DT’s or OT’s to fall to them. I seriously doubt Q falls that far, but Jonah could still be around. Then perhaps they could pick up a steal in the 2nd round. Beasley has been a bust. He had one good year (the Super Bowl year), the rest he has looked like a complete bust. Tak had some weird mental breakdown happen that has not been talked about too much, so who knows if that guy will be around.

    The NFL is really sending mixed signals. Hell two weeks ago a player was caught on tape mugging someone and ended up getting an invitation to the Super Bowl.

    This is the darkest timeline.

    I probably shouldn't say it and I know it's paranoid, but the guy in striped shirt just could, could, be looking at the biggest payday in his life. It's happened before...

    There's a video from the corner showing him run up to the official behind the Saints WR, but the official motions for him to stop. You can imagine how the LSU... I mean Saints fans reacted to that.

    I'm sure the NFL brass are aware of how the augments the public perception that athletic contests are rigged to benefit BIG money gambling. I believe that they will tweak the rules, reviews, whatever, to make sure something this flagrant doesn't happen again...

    I remember Alabama listed Jake Coker at the same height and weight as Ben Roethlisberger, and I said there is no way.

    Matt Miller's Scouting Notebook: Who's New on the 2019 NFL Draft Big Board?



    Alabama RB Josh Jacobs
    It's unlikely a running back will be drafted in the top five picks this year, but Alabama's Josh Jacobs is worth it. Jacobs, who sits at No. 5 overall on my board, has a mixture of power and speed that should excite NFL general managers. He's a more powerful version of Alvin Kamara with limited wear and tear, only carrying the ball 120 times as a junior and 251 times total in college in the deep Alabama backfield.
    5. Stock Down
    Alabama's Deionte Thompson shot out of a cannon this season as a first-year starter who looked like the NFL's answer to the free safety position, but Thompson has since fallen down the board consistently. He struggled against Clemson in the national title game, showing a timid nature and slow instincts that weren't there early in the year. Whether he was dealing with an undisclosed injury or just struggling, Thompson didn't look right. There are also legitimate concerns about his body type and weight. He's very skinny throughout his body and was playing at an estimated 170 pounds this season. That won't cut it in the NFL.

    If I heard correctly on the radio today the AAF pro league that Birmingham is playing in will have a review process in the last 5 minutes of each half that includes reviews for everything including non-calls like this one. This is something the NFL will watch closely and may incorporate.

    The "Ledyard" analysis was a lot of what I saw this year so I would agree with you. The "Crabbs" analysis is better and is what some teams see with Mack's potential. I think he is a day 2 guy going in 2nd or 3rd round.

    Nope. But I also don't think another year here would have helped him get better either.
