You called him cocky AND grabby.  Pretty damning evidence. 

He's a football player, not running for IS president.  

FTFY

DB's take as long as 4 years to "get it" sometimes.

I think we'll have a real good idea about Jaire at the end of the 2019 season.

Just stay healthy & play!

Guys I like that are left on the board

  • Josh Jackson
  • DJ Chark
  • Courtland Sutton
  • Isaiah Oliver
  • Will Hernandez
  • Ronnie Harrison

listening to local Bucs talk radio there was not anyone that sounded all excited about the possibility of taking James for the Bucs. They were saying he was a great athlete but rarely did enough on the field to make a difference. Any many of the callers were FSU alum. So whether James or Edumunds are all that is as much in debate as whether or not Alexander is all that. I have no idea how these guys are going to translate to pro ball but hoping Alexander is better than Rollins or  the already out of here Randall.

Problem is they are probably all gone by #45.  The question is will Glutes package some chum to move up in RD2 or climb back into RD3?  If he gets back into RD3 I hope it's the top half because he already has the first pick in RD4.

I'd actually trust the super homers of Florida college football.  I think it's pretty safe that Alexander will be a better fit than Randall and definitely better than Rollins.  Both tweener projects.  

Possibly all gone by #45 - We'll see

Nobody expected Landry still on the board....or Josh Jackson. Lotta draft left yet.

Reading back through older articles & finding out things here in Dallas - Seems Packers were really, REALLY trying to trade up & get Minkah. When that didn't work, they traded down & "settled" for Jaire while picking up more draft capital.

Dolphins probably wanted the moon to move up 3 spots - good for Gutey standing his ground on value.

Although I don't see why Pack couldn't have worked with Oakland who DID trade down with the Cardinals - Don't see why the Packers couldn't beat this deal if they really wanted Minkah that bad

That's exactly what I was thinking.  AZ didn't pay too much to move up.  Seems like Packers could have easily made a similar move.

But after seeing how everything worked out, I'm glad it didn't happen.  Time will tell, but based upon what I've read, there is a very good chance that Alexander ends up being as good, if not better, than Minkah.  So I'm happy with Alexander and a future 1st.  

Griffen is interesting. I'd guess top of 5th, but hobbits seem to be in fashion this year and it only takes one GM. The hand aside, he's awfully small for a linebacker. He's probably a Joe Thomas-type in the dime, and special teams. Hand work is so important in the pros and length can be too. 

If a team sees him as the nickel guy also, he could see the third round

Perhaps the death of Verne Troyer this week has given the Pack a soft spot for midgets?

Ok, bad joke.  Truth be told, I really don't care how big or small guys are as long as they can play.  Being 5'8" 167 lbs. myself I personally have some love for the vertically and horizontally challenged individuals of the NFL.

Griffin is 6โ€™/225 lbs. with 4.38 speed. He can bulk up without losing much speed. Shaq Thompson does just fine in Carolina at 230. 

Love his athleticism and attitude, but hand usage is kind of important for shedding blocks and tackling.
