    Somewhere I picked up that if it's .5 or higher you round up. Below .5 you round down.

    I believe because of the big push he will get after the combine, Lamar Jackson will be the first or second qb taken.

    I've been following the Shrine game reports and so far it seems like DEs Joe Ostman, Justin Lawler and Marcus Martin have all been doing alot of good things and getting positive press. WRs Justin Watson and Jake Weineke as well as Cole Reyes also have been garnering alot of positive buzz. Nice early returns so far - they all need combine invites though.

    Drew Brees is listed at 6'0" and that may be a bit on the generous side. He's never had problems spotting receivers downfield, and seems to have very few passes batted down near the line of scrimmage. As long as Mayfield can do the same or close to the same his height is irrelevant.

    Josey Jewell declined the senior bowl invite.

    D-Lineman LaCouture has come a long way since missing the previous season w Knee injury; he should be landing on the 53-man roster as a rotational player

    Good to see that Jewell was recognized....but a smart decision ...staying 100% healthy is paramount.

    Yeah Shadow..that would be one of the most encouraging Drafts in quite some time!
    3 D-Lineman....Sam Hubbard; Taven Bryan & Harrison Phillips as possible 1st Rounders....Elite players like JJ Watt & Joey Bosa might have opened the door more!

    As been stated numerous times this is the Strongest QB Class in a long time!

    TE position continues to flex it's muscles......the consensus seems to be 8 of the Top 10 TE's ...this is an interesting upward trend.

    That was what I was thinking when I posted that, along with Cleveland with the first pick. They seem to love those black qbs.

    Penn WR Justin Watson has had a good week of Shrine game practices and has now been invited to the Senior Bowl. Great news! Cooper Kupp effect perhaps?

    Awesome, big strong WR. Measured in at solid 6'3 215 just like Penn had him listed!

    Jake Weineke also had a good week by all accounts. He is another monster WR at 6-4 218 lbs. Neither of these guys is the prototypical white slot WR. These are both legitimate outside WRs.

    Good to see FCS teams pumping out elite White WRs over last few seasons. James Madison's WR should be next big thing come 19 draft.

    Just really pissed off about the DB situation.. All of our top guys are being ignored once again. As of right now Apke from PSU is our only hope and he's most likely a 6th or 7th roumder slash UDFA at best!

    Don't forget Cole Reyes! He had a nice week at the Shrine Game too. He could sneak up to the 4th round.

    Decided to watch the shrine game - not one positive thing said about a white player so far. Mayock has become such a caste goon.

    It's ok brother. Most of the announcers are idiots. I watch most games on mute and ignore most lame stream media! :)

    Ha! I heard the tail end of a Mayock story about a prospect who was the DII all time sack leader and Mayock had reverence for a prospect who had a short reach for the NFL to be a pass rusher and humbled himself to play fullback at the NFL level. I'm assuming he has been spinning these stories......

    I heard that as well - he did not say anything about Martin's production in college - he had no issue hyping up the black FBS LT though because "he looks the part". They were talking about Marcus Martin and of course it is him that has to go between FB and DE - it's the caste system in action.
