    I'm surprised by the lack of hype surrounding Gordon. He reminds me of a bigger J. Charles. He's the best back I've seen so far this year (of RB's eligible).

    He literally just shot up a bunch of charts. He looked good as a RS Frosh behind Ball and White, and he and White both have really taken to the new offense.

    On the oter side, while I know Slimm wasn't high on him, D'Anthony Thomas has really fallen off a lot of lists because of his mouth

    Yeah, if there's a 1st RD back this year, I have to believe it's Gordon. In most drafts, I'd say he's a lock to go in the 1st, but the 1st is likely going to be pretty stacked.

    Colt Lyerla is a can't miss prospect, we need to get him #1 overall and take him off the board.



    Slimm are you going to update your positional ranking?

    depending on the combine and where he projects I think he still could be. Browns need an RB, we need one as well as DT/Miller just are too damn inconsistent and have too many holes in their games, The Cards could take one, ect. There are also teams I could see trading back into the first for him.

    But in terms of "luxury picks" I'd rather go WR or TE before RB.

    I've seen a few that's had him there for a while. Probably a reason that I look at their stuff when time allows. Rumor is that he's staying at Wisconsin right now, though.

    Alright so I've been taking a look at some of the offensive linemen first. Specifically Cyrus and he's probably in the same class as Fluker was last year from what I've gathered. They're similar guys with their power in the run game, but I really didn't like Fluker last year because his feet seemed very heavy and I thought he would struggle holding up on the edge with speed rushers. When I watch Cyrus I see a guy with more upside and athleticism, but who still suffers from very inconsistent technique. I think he has better feet than DJ and has the upside to be better as a pass blocker and an equal as a run blocker. He really needs to clean up his technique tho because he bends at the waist a ton and as a result ends up on the ground and is knocked off balance way more than he should. But I really see an elite run blocker with a ton of power if he cleans up his technique. Am I on the right track with that evaluation? I've watched a handful of games and think he probably is going to need to move over to the right unless he returns for another year.

    Also why are you so low on Cedric Ogbuehi?

    Think you're underrating Fluker as a mauler.

    I get real sour over players with heavy feet. I definitely think Fluker is quite the mauler, I was more making a point that I really like the amount of strength and power Cyrus displays. He's a risky pick in this draft.
