I would argue that his footwork was cleaner than anyone in college football last year.. just wait till he gets 2 more years.. arm is only going to get stronger
    I respect your opinion, you probably watch a lot more Penn State games than me. However, I'm really interested in your thoughts re Allen Robinson, the WR? How good is he? Because he is bigger and more physical than any WR that we currently have on the roster, he appeals a lot. Welcome your thoughts..

    I think too many fans get caught up in draft grades...a 96 versus 95....this about building a team not winning a draft guru contest.

    If a 95 at a position of great need is there versus a 96 at a position of depth...you take the 95.
    Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.

    Allen Robinson > Kelvin Benjamin.. 19 is too high but I have him in that early 2nd range.. Pull the trigger if he makes it to 50 no doubt.. Miami needs that big bodied receiver to win those 50/50 balls.. He's also very skilled after the catch..

    Another key thing to look at is positional value.. Safety is the most scarce position in the league.. a 4-3 Will is also very scarce.. So I think if you have guys equally graded, you have to go with the rare position.. They're are at least 10-12 "Franchise" left tackles.. But the only "franchise" free safeties are Byrd, Earl, McCourty, and Weddle.. So I would have guys like Calvin Pryor, Ha Ha, and Shazier pretty high on my board..
