Agree FC, I’ve been digging how this kid plays. Tough nosed son of a bitch who can cover and make plays on the ball.

I thought he looked good in Senior Bowl practices that I caught. I am also bias since I too played at Delaware.

I really like him.

Too bad the Steelers do not need a 5 tech in this draft. It is loaded.

Sure they could use one but there are some high quality 5-techs that will drop into the 2nd round.

Well... shit! I guess this takes him off everyone's boards. Pending the legal case. Even though it's just allegations at this point. Damn.

#12 another intriguing prospect. (early) Mid-Round pick potential.

At best, Carl Granderson would be a Chick replacement. I would be fine with him in the 5th round or later. Minus the sexual assault charges.

I am up in the air about Hakeem Butler. Love some of the traits but he has the feeling of Kelvin Benjamin or Hunter. Some people love him. I feel he has been skating by on his physical abilities with no real technique. I would call him a TE that does not block.

Draft season has officially begun! Posts of intrigue and also I have my first two draft crushes of 2019.

Both are from Power 5 conferences, so, the times they are a changin'.

This prospect is a bit raw but has intriguing size and length. 3rd Rounder?



Also find this prospect intriguing.



My favorite little known [not being talked about] CB right now....



...and another little known [not being talked about] CB right now...



This prospect looks like a true sleeper for the later rounds

Nice choices 77. I like Hartage and Blace Brown a lot.

CB Corey Ballentine https://wusports.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=5068

Couldn't find much film on him but his draft stock after the senior bowl has slowly been on the rise. At first glance looks the part with size, length and [alleged] long speed. Has kick return experience. Also there's this...

I want either Chauncey Gardner-Johnson or Nassir Adderly in rd 2.

Hopefully we can add a CB or ILB in FA that allows us to grab a good S/Dime backer in rd 2.

I just hope we don't think Davis/Edmunds are good enough to exclude playmakers at the position.

I think either Edmunds can be a decent Dime backer... point is: they need more playmakers at safety, regardless of whether FS (Ed Reed), SS Troy Polamalu/Eric Berry), dime backer (Telvin Smith/Deone Bucannon), S/CB type (Tyran Matthieu/Eric Rowe).

Adderly's going to go round 1 late, unless he flunks the combine.

Chauncey Gardner to Chauncey Gardiner is just too good to be true.

I agree that this draft class is loaded.

I think they could use one, actually, but can't afford the pick. That's why I was advocating in FA for a 5 tech who can be a plus penetrator/rusher (David Irving). Look for a FA signing and a UDFA with a chance to make the team. NT/DT tech is in play, too... McCullers is done and Alualu is a FA.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons suffered a torn ACL during a pre-draft training session.
It is a devastating blow for a player who was expected to be a first-round pick despite not being invited to the Combine because of a 2016 incident in which he was seen punching a woman multiple times while she was on the ground. He pleaded no contest to a simple assault charge following the incident. A big (6-foot-4, 300 pounds) interior disruptor, it is possible a team takes a shot on Simmons Day 2 despite his injury and off-field concerns.

Punching a women while she’s on the ground??? Now that’s a whole different level of shitbag!
Yeah, I’d use a 1st round pick on this loser... :roll:

6'4", 300 pounds. So much for "gentle giant." Jeez. When the switch flips for folks, do they just forget the fact that they probably double the woman's weight and are a foot taller? People are nuts.

Context, if I recall correctly: it was a fight between two women and he was protecting one of the women who was getting beat up.

Not that it makes it satisfactory, just context.

I'd draft him and wouldn't think twice about it. I have a contact and Mississippi State that says he's been a good teammate, has kept his nose clean, and has distanced himself from that event. He's an elite level player who can be flat out unblockable at times. Can you imagine if you can draft this guy later in the draft to play alongside of Cameron Heyward, Stephon Tuitt, and Javon Hargrave you can't pass him up.

I fully agree smith. The thoughts that ran through my mind as well. I'd spend a 2nd and most definitely a 3rd on him which could very well be a reality because this draft is oddly heavy DLine talent. If they could parlay a Brown trade and get an extra pick or 2 for him I'd definitely be targeting DLine depth on top of ILB and Corner. *Hint* https://twitter.com/AB84/status/1095375211749355520
