    You don't like Charles Omenihu?

    I see a couple Long Snappers on this list - Weeks may be thinking about hanging up the cleats after this season.

    Jaylon Ferguson was who I mocked to Texans in 2nd... but he fell to the 3rd where Ravens snagged him 1 pick ahead!

    IMO different type players. Clowney can play OLB and DE. I see Crosby as OLB and Omen as a DT/DE. Can be wrong about latter and I like him as a replacement for Covington.

    Hope DJ Coker is out future starting center. Jamal Davis replace Edgifor, Hairy becomes safety as does Lonnie Johnson. Higdon replaces L Miller, my boy Chris Johnson converts to corner, Drew Lewis becomes as good as I think he can. Pridgeon becomes an NFL guard and Ta'amu beats out our 3rd string QB.

    I hope Omenihu works out. But the more I watch him the more concerned I become about his ability to translate his game to the pros. I see some Clowney-esque plays on his college tape due to his ability to time the snap count and take advantage of his impressive length to beat OL. Also, that same Clowney ability to get skinny and squeeze between OL beating them off the snap to get into the backfield. But I don't see Clowney's lightning fast first step and I'm worried about his ability to make splash plays in the NFL. When I watch him I see a splash player... for better and for worse. There are plays where he is immediately in the backfield blowing up a play. And then there are plays where a TE is driving him off the line like he's being blocked by Quenton Nelson. The Oklahoma game was the perfect example of the good, bad and ugly of his game.

    The rookie DL I am most excited about and think makes the quickest pro impact is Albert Huggins. An absolute steal that he wasn't drafted. But I don't see a guy who is "just a run stuffer". I see a guy with a deceptively fast first step to go with a heck of an anchor. He can make big plays but he wont get exposed and become a liability near as often as a player like Omenihu. I think those traits translate better in the NFL which is why I could see him getting more playing time. The more I watch Huggins the more impressed I am with his play. Also impressive is his character. He would have been well within his rights to transfer to a school that would make him a starter. Particularly when Wilkins opted to return for his senior year when it was "Huggins turn" to start. But he stuck with it and when Dexter Lawrence got suspended he got his opportunity to shine and played very well in the College Football Playoffs.

    Agree but long ways before needing either of those two to play much. Huggins is more of a steady nose tackle type. May never be every game starter but solid depth. I'm still watching cuts from other teams.

    Yep most likely interior pass rush contributor on roster is Carlos Watkins. Need him to fulfill that 4th round pick investment.

    & BO'b couldn't put more than 7 points against 93.5 QBR allowed?

    That's what I meant to say.

    That 93.5 BAR was due largely to allowing 37 points in the first game with Houston.

    I corrected my post... obviously not before you quoted me.

    So you take that game out, what was their QBR allowed? Does that explain the cluster of a passing game in the playoffs?

    Colts got a lot better defensively as the season wore on for sure.

    Yes I had him if we traded Clowney to Raiders get their 35. I think he's going be very good.

    Jake Fisher has been cut after Bills mini camp. His conversion evidently has not been impressive as his heart and disc conditions have taken their toll.

    Woodson-Luster played just 42 snaps with the Browns last season (all but one on special teams). His 87.6 tackling grade at Arkansas State in 2016 was 13th among linebackers.
