I wanted to put Antonio Garcia's name out there because I haven't seen him get a ton of mention. He reminds me quite a bit of Terron Armstead. Really easy mover with natural athleticism and knee bend. Constantly looking for work and seems to relish finishing his blocks and getting his guy down to the ground.

His game against a very good Clemson defense was quite good. Didn't allow a sack in nearly 900 snaps.



Stop. You're going to cause him to rise out of our reach loll. He's easily a 1st round OT especially in this draft. After the senior bowl, he will be a lost cause.

Jabrill Peppers is so grossly overrated.

Microfracture knee surgery is still a pretty big deal. That alone will make teams hesitant of taking him in the 1st round.

Budda Baker in Rd 2, yay or nay?
I think he can be a Tyrann Mathieu-like game changer. Safety and nickleback versatility with top notch ball skills

I'd think about it, but it depends on the offensive lineman available. Positional value is going to elevate those prospects for us.

He's a very very poor man's Tyrann Mathieu. I'd be okay with grabbing OL then trading back into the 2nd round for him though.

What do you guys think about WR Chad Hansen from Cal? If he's there in the 4th, I say snag him.

DT Caleb Brantley is very nice. Probably get snapped up before we pick though.

he is, but he is still a damn good player. I personally would like him to try and gain some mass to himself and try and do the ole Mark Barron, Shaq Thompson switcher-roo.

I personally believe he could fill in Zona's defense and do much more for their team than even Deone Bucannon.

The kid is just an athlete.

I'd be shocked to see Williams or Taylor that low.

Is he a Center though? He plays Tackle currently everything I've seen on him projects him as a Guard in the NFL. If we do land Lamp he should be a plug and play guy at RG. I'm fine with drafting a center to compete with Easton.

I think he's average at everything. I don't think he's some great athlete either. Great compared to guys that are weigh heavier than him, yes. Compared to nickel CBs in the league, he's average or below average in terms of athleticism. Mark Barron and Shaq Thompson were both hard hitting tough guys, Peppers is soft. He's just a very large slot CB in the league if you ask me.

I think he can play C. Very similar to playing G with added protection calling responsibilities. Every interview I've seen of his leads me to believe he's a smart football player and could learn the protection calls. Cody Whitehair did this exact thing last year for the Bears.
I think we have different opinions on Easton. Frankly I thought he was pretty terrible when he actually got to play. No push in the run game.

Easton was one of the few to get push in the run game this year.... he also has the track record of doing just that in back to back preseason schedules being rated one of the best run blockers.
