I'm not sure I understand this. Is this some sort of competition? Or are we just posting about players that we find interesting?soxfan121 said:Post about your 2015 draft binkie candidates here. Final picks due before draft begins three months from now.
ElcaballitoMVP said:DT- M. Brown (TEX) versatile, athletic and big. J. Phillips (OKL)- 6'5, 330, he's a monster but back problems are a red flag. Round 1-2 type guys.
It took me a while to realize he was the Red Sox 8th round pick in the 2011 draft. According to Abraham his refusal to sign led the Red Sox to increase their offer to Betts and get him signed. I don't know how good he is at football, but I like him.ElcaballitoMVP said:CB- S. Golson (MISS) Later round guy who I've seen play a lot. Undersized but a ballhawk.
They already have Tim Wright.JBJ_HOF said:if they are going skill position it is 100% Devin Funchess

That's the same thing as saying every small white WR is Wes Welker.

I am not nuanced enough on the finer points of DL play and how to think about college offensive lines vs. pro offensive lines, but I do know that there is a lot of robust discussion about Wilfork right now and whether or not the Pats should move on. Then I see Phillips who is a mountain (6-6, 334), played in a power conference and is currently being mocked anywhere from late first to the 3rd round. I'm still in the information gathering phase, so I'm not going to call him a binkie yet, but I could see it trending that way.
Here is the obligatory highlight video
RedOctober3829 said:Sammie Coates. Tall, fast, and from the SEC. He constantly ran away from SEC defenses last year. Coates would be a huge upgrade on Tyms.
This guy killed the Senior Bowl as well, more than holding his own against top opposition and apparently opening a lot of eyes. He has a lot of the traits of a classic Pats developmental interior OL. I could see him being in play in the middle rounds.RedOctober3829 said:I'm a sucker for small school guys. I'm pulling for Hobart OL Ali Marpet. He was the only OL to run a sub 5.0 40 and was best or 2nd best in every drill today. The Patriots met with him as well.
mwonow said:The RB Allen looks really good - balance, change of direction, changing speed, some pop when he needs it...and man, David Irving is a beast. 2015 is probably not the best NFL year to have character issues, though...
That would be a very solid backfield indeed. IT I know, but is Reece really back, you think?Gunfighter 09 said:
I have to think Allen's 4.53 at 221# puts him solidly on day 2. I am already dreaming of an Allen / Latavius Murray / Marcel Reece backfield next year.
Those are almost exact replicas of Le'Veon Bell's numbers at the combine last year, fwiw. I imagine this guy can't catch it nearly as well but that speed/quickness profile definitely works as an NFL runner and might be undervalued in the market.Super Nomario said:I'm reading Waldman's RSP right now. His #7 RB is Texas' Malcolm Brown. Brown seems like a great fit for the Pats. He has ideal size (5'11", 224 pounds). His straight-line speed (4.62 40) was below-average, but he excelled in the 3-cone (6.86, 4th among RB) and shuttle (4.15, 8th), especially given his size. Most Pats-y: massive 10 1/4" hands and a fumble just once every 619 touches, by far the best in the class. Sounds like a nice Ridley replacement, and someone they can probably nab in the later rounds.
Ridley was very similar, too - 5'11" 225, 4.66 40, 6.78 3-cone, 4.21 shuttle.Morgan's Magic Snowplow said:Those are almost exact replicas of Le'Veon Bell's numbers at the combine last year, fwiw.
