  1. Imagine going into the draft with 9 picks, getting Ekwonu and Deebo on day one. Then trading Becton for a day 2 pick and Mims for a day 3 pick, which would allow them to start day 2 still with 9 picks.
  2. Also mentioned on the Pro Football Network Draft Insiders show. Said it was 70:30 likely to happen.
  3. Has the traits of a Kyle Shanahan type of receiver from a short area quickness measurables stand point. 6.81 3-cone and 4.10 shuttle are within the range of the typical WR in the system. Elijah Moore: 6.67 3-cone, 4 shuttle and Berrios: 6.72 3-cone, 4.18 shuttle. Devin Fuller, Deebo, Richie James, all have similar 3-cone (around 7) and shuttle times (around 4.1). Plays similar to Hunter Renfrow and can be a contributor on special teams.
  4. Seems like a perfect Shanahan late round type of prospect. built like Elijah Mitchell but plays like Raheem Mostert.
  5. Agreed. The 'red flags' are over blown when it comes down to the draft as everyone gets nit-picky about every prospect. Its possible that there are other 'red flags' that are just not available to the public but these issues seem to just be minor concerns.
  6. 4 OL Ickey Ekwonu 10 WR Drake London 35 EDGE Nik Bonitto 38 LB Quay Walker 69 C Cameron Jurgens 111 CB Zyon McCollum 117 FS J.T. Woods 146 WR Bo Melton 163 RB Isaih Pacheco
  7. Has just a few that were on-field issues: 2019: Suspended during the 1st half of the Georgia Tech game for violating team rules. Eventually ejected from game. 2019: Suspended for the 1st half of the LSU game, for fighting with a defender in the Georgia Tech game. "Unfortunately, [Pickens] got an undisciplined penalty and when you make undisciplined decisions, regardless of what's done first, you pay a penalty for that," Smart said. "He won't be able to play the first half of next week and when you make emotional decisions, that's what happens. We're going to help George. We're going to help him grow up. We're going to help him make better decisions so he can help our team, but that's unfortunate." Smart called Pickens' actions both "selfish" and "undisciplined." "I mean, don't be stupid," Smart said. "It's just silly, it's selfish, it's undisciplined. It's, 'Why?' You ask yourself why. Why would I give up an opportunity over what we have next week? Over what? I always ask guys, 'Was it worth it?' That's what I always say. 'Was it worth it?' It's not worth it to me when you hurt the team. "But you live and you grow up and you love them. And look, I love George Pickens. He went to the hospital with us on Friday and did an unbelievable job. He had as much charisma and as much care for those kids as anybody we had there. George is a great kid. He's a freshman." 2020: Flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct for squirting water on the Tennessee QB when he ran out-of-bounds on the Georgia sideline Georgia wideout George Pickens squirted water at Tennessee quarterback Jarrett Guarantano after the Vol signal-caller ran and fell out of bounds on the Bulldog sideline Saturday. Pickens received a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, and Tennessee later took a 21-17 lead on that drive off a 27-yard touchdown pass. After the game, Georgia head coach Kirby Smart expressed his displeasure with Pickens' actions. "When somebody comes out of bounds and you squirt water at them, what are we? Are we seven and eight years old?" Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart said, per ESPN's Harry Lyles Jr. "I mean come on, let's play football. Let's don't be silly." ---- "George is a talented player. In terms of leadership, it starts from within; it starts with him. He's got to do a great job of making sure he's handling all the things that he's got to do both on and off the field,” Smart said. “George is growing up, as all players do, and we need him to grow up faster. We need him to lead more. He's certainly a talented player, but sometimes that can be a disease at Georgia that affects you. You have to be careful of that, because what makes George great: his love for the game. And you just cannot let that be a weakness; you've got to use it as a strength." ---- “It’s just one of continued growth and maturity, and he has embraced it,” Hankton said of Pickens’ mental development. “When you look at our entire team and you talk about altruism, I think there’s this aura of selflessness and a positive vibe. It has really continued to grow; it really shines brighter. For (Pickens), he’s embraced that, so I’m looking forward to how he continues to move forward.” ---- There are also Georgia fans that called him out his freshman year for only playing hard when it was a pass play and putting little to no effort when it was a run play or the ball was not coming his way. There may be other issues that are not known to the public, but you can see that he has been growing up and maturing. It is really up to the NFL team that drafts him to have the environment for him to thrive. He has the talent of a 1st rounder, but the 'red flags' and injury has pushed him down to borderline 1st or early 2nd round. Wouldn't say these concerns remove him from the draft board, but the coaching staff needs to be up to the challenge to help him continue to grow and mature.
  8. Another interesting tidbit from this podcast was the discussion of the number of 1st round graded players. Daniel has 16, Bucky has 18 and Brett Veach (KC's GM) has 16-18 1st round graded players. And the follow up to that discussion was that Daniel had a hard time filling out his top 150. Once he got to 130, he believes there is a huge drop off. He has 2 punters and 1 kicker in his top 150 which is not typical, there just isn't the prospects after around the 4th round. They talk about either trading up with later picks (5-7) to get into the 4th or just trading 5-7 round picks for a pick next year.
  9. Not sure these are legit sources and it's lying season.
  10. The talent is there but from what I've read and heard on podcasts is that the character concerns are what is moving him down. He needs to find the right team and there are questions about his maturity. From a fan post on a Georgia forum from 2020: "He does NOT BLOCK this year. Watch him. He takes all plays off that do not directly involve him. Very selfish! I say bench him or use him as a decoy. He needs to grow up." The thing is, he can be a very effective blocker when he wants to be.
  11. Now go sign Arden Key and Rasheem Green.
  12. If you believe Connor Hughes, more likely an emphasis on the D-line early in the draft.
