    Pro Football Focus graded Robinson the worst LT in the league last year. He gave up 8 sacks, he's a huge part of the reason Goff got annihilated on a weekly basis as a rookie. Anti white media wants to write off Goff already but they neglect to mention he was hit on 43 percent of his dropbacks as a rookie!

    I hate that tribeboy cherpinsky - always denigrates whites. No real analysis is provided either - just his lame remarks.

    Lol I think the Rams should draft Mahomes. He obviously has dat upside and a rocket arm(his uncle was a shitty pitcher for the Cubs). He led Texas Tech to a 5-7 record in a conference that deems defense optional. Plus he throws the ball 60+ times a game and has rarely ran an offense under center in his career! He's a 1st rounder his defense just sucked. Sarcasm of course.

    Cuckepinksy writes like a 9-year-old boy who's just discovered that he can use daddy's computer to flame people. "Jared Goof"? How original, clever, and witty.

    And the whole "Goff's Rams be da worst team ever" thing is part of a larger problem in which adults with child-like minds scream "worst ever" at the most recent person, place, or thing that caused them butthurt. For liberal "historians," the "worst president evah" is always the most recent Republican president. That's why normal people never take them seriously.

    It's hard to believe someone with such an intricate website in regards to analyzing teams and players (not even getting into the caste system here) could sound like such an uneducated idiot, especially in regards to white players. His free agent grades are terrible too. Look at all of the white free agent pickups he's given a "Millen Kielbasa" grade to. What the eff is that even supposed to mean anyway? His site is one step above one of those crappy fan made Bleacher Report pages where every (black) player listed is laden with "upside"

    Nick Folk has been signed to compete with 2016 2nd rounder Roberto Aguayo who struggled last year. Normally I would not care about a kicker but Aguayo received so much hype when he was at Free Shoes (I'd be willing to wager because he was a non-white) and the Bucs used a 2nd rounder on him - I hope Folk wins the competition!

    We all knew this was coming but notice the lack of denigrating comments and insults hurled at all time bust Dion Jordan from weenieworld in their blurb:

    The Miami Herald reports DE Dion Jordan isn't in Miami's 2017 plans.

    It falls in line with previous reports. Jordan has been having off-field issues and isn't close to being in football shape, ballooning to 275-pounds after missing the last two years with injuries/suspensions. Miami can save $3.2 million from releasing Jordan.

    Fascinating how kickers were considered by the (((media))) to be "not real athletes" only until a non-white one came along. Aguayo's presence on the field is particularly obnoxious because his presence in this country isn't even justified. At least the blacks have the excuse that their ancestors were brought here against their will. Mestizo mystery meats have no such excuse.

    Probably the biggest bust in Miami Dolphins history, supplanting RB Sammie Smith for that dubious honor.

    Free agent WR Robert Meachem is working out at Tennessee's Pro Day on Friday.

    The Saints' former first-rounder out of Tennessee in 2007 turns 33 this year and just ended a 30-day jail sentence for failing to pay child support and alimony. Meachem needs a pay check and hopes to land a deal with all 32 teams in attendance at the Volunteers' Pro Day. We doubt he gets a contract.

    Lol nothing but a has been. This dingleberry already had his shot. If he's looking for a job to pay his child support, fast food is always hiring.

    Pretty funny article on Dion Jordan recapping the "experts" and their professional analysis of the pick during the 2013 draft. I have to give Gruden some credit but every other expert looks like an asshole!!!!! and the funny thing is Dion Jordan is not the exception - they all spew the caste BS during the draft. Again no credibility it removed from them because they have become anointed experts because they uphold the caste system. Dion Jordan is one of the all time biggest busts.

    What was said about Dion Jordan in 2013, and the lesson from it
    Posted by Michael Gehlken on March 31, 2017, 7:03 PM EDT
    NEW YORK, NY – APRIL 25: Dion Jordan of the Oregon Ducks reacts after he was picked #3 overall by the Miami Dolphins in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft at Radio City Music Hall on April 25, 2013 in New York City. (Photo by Al Bello/Getty Images)


    Woooooah! Woooooah!

    Woooah-woooah-woooah!

    And so it began in 2013, the NFL Network booth reacting to Commissioner Roger Goodell’s podium announcement of Dion Jordan as the Dolphins’ selection at No. 3 overall following a trade with the Raiders. The analysts expected tackle Lane Johnson, hence their surprise. That reaction is not to be faulted.

    What was said afterward, and in the weeks before, is where the lesson comes.

    When projecting draft prospects, no one knows for certain.

    The Dolphins finally released Jordan on Friday, ending months of expectation. The ex-Oregon defensive end totaled the same number of suspensions for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy, three, as he did sacks in Miami. His regard in 2013 speaks equally to Jordan’s talent level as to there being few guarantees in scouting.

    Here is what was said after Jordan was selected.

    Mike Mayock: “This young man, I think he’s got the potential to be the player that I compare him to, which is Jason Taylor, who ironically played for the Miami Dolphins. I also think he looks a little bit like an Aldon Smith, and if he puts on 20 pounds on that 6-foot-7 frame, some day he might be as good as a DeMarcus Ware. He’s got that kind of edge speed.”

    Steve Mariucci: “You know, I talked to his coach Nick Aliotti the other day, his defensive coordinator at Oregon. And he said this kid loves football. He loves to play. He loves to practice. He’s fully committed right now to football. This guy has got everything that it takes not only to rush the passer but to drop into coverage at over 6-6. This guy, when he puts on a little muscle, he’s going to be dynamite.”

    Marshall Faulk: “Dion Jordan is the guy that you don’t have to scheme to get a sack. He gets you a sack. And if you’re going to to compete against the New England Patriots two times a year, you have to be able to just beat a guy 1-on-1 and get a sack and not blitz Tom Brady. You need this guy.”

    That was the immediate reaction to Jordan’s selection.

    Mayock stood out in a key area, doing well to say what Jordan could be as opposed to will be.

    Pre-draft chatter included this from Bleacher Report: “If a player is going to be considered a ‘can’t-miss’ prospect, he needs to have a combination of elite physical traits, sound technical football skills and be free of character flaws. Oregon linebacker Dion Jordan may not be the first player selected on Thursday night, but when you consider the combination of athleticism and versatility he brings to the table, there is no way Jordan will fail to produce in the NFL.

    Jon Gruden anchored the ESPN broadcast’s reaction to Jordan’s selection.

    He had his doubts.

    “I really like Dion Jordan’s athleticism, but I’m shocked about this pick,” Gruden said. “When I watch Dion Jordan play, Mel (Kiper), I just don’t see him play. And this isn’t any false information. When you watch Oregon play, he doesn’t play against Cal because he’s hurt. But they play almost like hockey. He plays six plays; he’s out six plays. When you watch Dion Jordan play seven snaps in an NFL game, that’ll be the first time you’ve ever seen him do it. … He’s a great athlete, but there’s a lot of unknown right now at third overall.

    Plenty of love will be shown toward prospects during and after the April 27 to 29 draft.

    It’s best digested with a grain of salt.

    Another bust! This is my favorite thread.

    Bears waived DT Ego Ferguson.

    Knee and shoulder injuries have limited Ferguson to just four games over his last two seasons. The former second-round pick turns 26 in September.

    I wish I had kept all the draft magazines I've invested in over the years so I could check these bust's evaluations against how they actually turned out.

    Just for laughs.

    I remember saying it at the time (maybe even on this forum) that this guy would bust HARD. The hockey analogy is actually pretty fitting. Jordan wasn't even a full time player. I remember that draft screaming for Lane Johnson to be the pick only to have this turd's name called. Dion Jordan joins other black Dolphin's busts Sammie Smith, Yatil Greene, Ted Ginn, John Avery and possibly supplants all of them for the biggest draft bust in Dolphins history.

    This bust thing really interests me. I wish someone would put out a comprehensive book (or magazine) about this phenomenon. Call it say, "The Book of Busts" maybe. And try to answer the question of why so many players are overrated and over-drafted. After all that study and analysis and going over the draft over and over, with previous examples to refer to, and they still draft a and pay millions to a guy who can't play in the NFL. Some are obvious. Lazy, drugs, attitude, lack of intelligence, poor instincts, among others. I'm not talking about some lame top ten busts list either. A comprehensive look at maybe the last thirty or forty years, or at least since the draft has become such a big event. I'd buy such a magazine or book in a heartbeat.

    Giants third-year DE Owa Odighizuwa indicated on Twitter that he intends to step away from the game.

    "At the point and time I believe it's in my best interest to take sometime to get away from the game," Odighizuwa wrote. The 74th overall pick in the 2015 draft, Odighizuwa was a favorite of the draftnik community coming out of UCLA but failed to earn playing time in the Giants' defensive line rotation the past two seasons. Only 25, Odighizuwa may consider a comeback down the road.

    This slothful, criminally-inclined loser received absurd amounts of media love because of his "mouth-watering upside" as the second round pick of the Titans. Tennessee traded him to Philly in his second season, where he bombed again in '16.

    Jimmy Kempski of the Philly Voice believes Dorial Green-Beckham "must be significantly improved to make the roster in 2017." Following the additions of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, Green-Beckham is at best the No. 4 receiver on the depth chart, and Nelson Agholor's contract essentially guarantees him a roster spot. That means DGB is likely competing for one of the last spots on the roster, and those positions are usually reserved for players who contribute on special teams, which he does not do. Unless he makes a big jump, Green-Beckham could find himself looking for his third team in two years.

    Good news for Chad Hansen as the already thin depth chart is even thinner now.

    Total bust from the first round of the 2014 draft:

    Philadelphia Eagles DE Marcus Smith's fifth-year option will not be picked up by the Eagles, according to a source. Smith has turned in a disappointing pro career so far with only four career sacks.

    Many of these guys in the power positions are physically too big for the average college starter(even in the power conferences), but once they make the NFL can't use their size upon stronger more athletic opponents. See various sumo defensive tackles or offensive tackles or guards. Also some guys are literally like broken down race horses that are held together with proverbial chewing gum. The extra physical toll of bigger stronger guys on their bodies sends them to the IR throughout their aborted careers.

    In the speed positions many guys have poor technique but get by against slower college players with raw athleticism. Similar to great college quarterbacks that can't read defenses or pass with any accuracy.
