    Top 15. Not sure I can see both Miami AND Washington passing on him unless he really shits the bed in the interviews.

    And we've already seen how good he is with the words.

    You've got to assume he's been assured a first round by at least one team so that he can pay back Oakland out of his signing bonus. There's no chance they'd accept losing out on their first round player and getting the money back in installments. It's going to be genuinely hilarious the first time a properly brutal rusher gets their hands on him. Donald could probably land him in the seventh row of seating.

    Anfernee Jennings sacked him with one hand while still being blocked in the Alabama game, so putting on the ground seems easy enough. Getting hands on him is the hard part.

    Apparently he’s getting up to 200lbs though. Maybe he should work out with DK Metcalf.

    Right now I’d rank his landing spots as:

    Miami

    Washington
    Jacksonville

    Oakland
    Denver
    Arizona

    NYG
    Cincinnati

    Jacksonville will go below Oakland if they sign Foles or Bridgewater, and I refuse to believe the Cardinals talk until it happens.

    Not at all related but those NBA jerseys look fucking insane. Shame they are 20 years off (allegedly).

    AAF kicking off at 7 with Birmingham Iron against Salt Lake Stallions - should be able to watch on their website.

    I've only been half watching so far but this seems like a pretty not good game.

    I didn't watch the rest of the games from last night, but going by the highlights I didn't miss much in the Birmingham game. Just watching the ARI/MEM highlights & I've gotta say I've been impressed by Zac Stacy in both games.







    Rashad Ross deserves a look too:







    Some of the hits Hackenberg took were ejections in the NFL though





    There was also this really nice run:

    We’ve lost one of the potential challengers for the 40 record at the combine - Marquise ‘Hollywood’ Brown has had surgery on a lisfranc injury & will miss the combine & his pro day.

    He’ll still be a second round pick, to be fair.

    Mr Big Chest

    He must be getting the same advice as Kyler was.

    Fucking hell. It's a shame AB is so talented, because he really is a complete and utter prune.

    Seems like it’s actually going to happen (until they see the offers & decide to give him the Bell treatment instead)

    Cardinals have signed Charles Clay too.

    I'm really interested to see where he could go. If he just wants money then it's not worth talking about, but in terms of turning a team into SuperBowl challengers it's intriguing.

    The top paid WR from last season was Mike Evans for $18.2m of cap space. You'd imagine Brown will command $19-20m. Looking at Over The Cap, there's a few teams with over $20m free in cap space(I know it's not that simple).

    The Packers, but they do have a good WR corps already. Their defence is much more a pressing need.
    Titans, they'll have Walker back and have Davis but nothing really after that.
    Cowboys. Still need help at WR but just paid out big for Cooper, though not a great deal wrong with the rest of the team.
    49ers. With Jimmy G they're a completely different team and pairing him with the counter punch of Kittle would be great. There's not another WR that really stands out as must keep from them either.

    Seahawks would be a bit from left field, but they're a good young team with a superbowl winning formula being built into them. Adding a big weapon like Brown would give them another big push. Although they'd probably be more likely to take Hollywood Brown under their current model.

    Colts. Luck is amazing without great weapons and Frank Reich will get everything from him. They probably need more help with defence, but do have the most cap space in the league with over $100m. They could afford to do both.

    49ers is the one, I think.

    He won't go to the 49ers. I reckon he'd rather spend a season doing a Bell, even at this stage of his career, than spend it finishing nowhere.

    I could see the Raiders trading for him, maybe trumping everyone by offering one of their nineteen first round picks, but if he goes for a second it'll be to either the Packers on a 'win now' push accompanied by a load of defensive FA signings, or the Eagles, with a coach desperately keen to justify letting Foles go and putting their future on Wentz.

    I'd love him at the Eagles but we've the 2nd lowest spare cap space in the league and Wentz is coming into a 'put your money where your mouth is' kind of year.

    I've heard rumblings of us going in for him (and Bell) but I don't see it at all.

    We don't really have enough draft capital to trade for him and even after freeing Flacco we'd need to do a lot of cap movement to get him in.

    I'm hoping we could find a MLB or OL after cuts. I've heard that Osemele could be a cap casualty/Raiders open to trading him and I'd go all out for him. We'd still be lacking at centre but Stanley - Osemele - A Body - Yanda - Brown Jr would be a mean O-Line.

    Erik McCoy from Texas A&M could be a good day two guy to play center in that line.

    Steelers have confirmed they wont tag or use the transition tag on Bell.

    While we're talking RBs...He isn't my top back in the draft class, but you know who's fun? Devin Singletary.

    Guy has a great feel for space & how defenders are going to move within it, and he does the peak Shady thing of having an unblocked defender two yards from him as he takes the handoff, but the defender ends up on the floor having not even touched him while he breaks off a 20yd run. I'd wager his highlight tape is the best in the entire class.

    Here it is, actually:



    Not exactly the greatest competition playing for FAU, but I think he had something dumb like 68 TDs in 38 games
