I like the Braylon -> Edwards comparison (and when I think about it, Floyd and Edwards are also similar to each other).

I also like the King->Flowers comparison. He's easily my favorite corner in this draft class.


For some reason I keep seeing Ty Law when I watch King, although Flowers is not a bad comparison. I like the Jones and trufaunt comparison. Although I'm not sure about the Barnett comparison. I would have liken him to a Orakpo with the way he favors with using his upper body to over power guys.

Moz, bad teams pick in the top 5.That's the way the draft works.

Leonard Fournette-- Ricky Williams


I appall player comps, however this is an excellent comparison. Arguably the closest I've ever seen. When you talk play strength these two are the cream of the crop.

I think you guys will have to find some point of agreement here on a guy that will rise somewhat following the combine:

Nate Gerry (Harrison Smith)
Positions played: Safety / some linebacker (Safety / some linebacker)
Recruited as: Athlete (Athlete)
Height: 6'2 (6'2)
Weight: 220lbs (215lbs)
40 time: 4.4 - 4.5 tbc (4.5s)
Trademarks: Big hits and Ints (Big hits and ints)
Senior Year tackles per game / pdef / TFL: 6.73, 12, 5.5 (6.93, 10, 3)

Harrison is an ultra-athletic, big and smart safety who has roamed the secondary as a four-year starter and senior captain for Notre Dame. He is the type of safety who is always involved, using his quickness, recognition and overall body control to react effectively to plays.

Gerry's athleticism: Gerry won the 200 and was runner-up in the 100 last year as a junior. His bests of 10.39 in the 100 and 21.31. Claimed 35" vert, 10'7" broad. Ran down Akrum Wadley easily.


Problem is I don't think Gerry runs a 4.5, I think he's closer to 4.7.

Ran the 100m in high school at 10.39. And was timed at combines in hs with a best 40 of 4.42.

dudes got wheels


That's great. I doubt he was 220 in HS either though. I just don't see a 4.4 out there, but I guess he could surprise me.


He was the biggest, fasted kid (for his size) in HS in Sioux Falls. He really hasn't grown much. 10 pounds. I'd say he is still close to 4.5 speed. Kid will be good.

And if you watch Foreman, the guy runs like a freight train, but can change direction with easy.

Marshawn Lynch was 5'11" 215, ran lower and popped more. There are much better comparisons out there.


And this Foreman kid is faster than Lynch ever was. Lynch was my favorite runningback during his reign of terror in Seattle, but he didn't hit homeruns the way Foreman does. Lynch will almost 100% be considered the better pro back 15 years from now, but I think Foreman ends up being a high end RB for someone. I really like his game.

Lynch was so dangerous because of his quick twitch lateral ability. He could make you miss or lower the shoulder with violence. That's what makes some backs really dangerous.

Foreman doesn't have anywhere near the lateral ability of a Lynch, Le'Veon Bell or a Blount. Sure if he gets a crease he's got an extra gear but running to daylight in the NFL is a maze. Much different than the runways he gets at Texas.

Foreman reminds me more of the NFL Laurence Maroney

Decent size, runs with a full head of steam at times, but has enough speed to bust it.

RB's are so hard to judge because of how much they change how they run when they enter the NFL. If they don't change, most of the times those are the ones that fail.

Foreman is 6'1" 240, Henry was 5'9" 215. Might want to reevaluate this one.
