    I'm warming to the idea of a short extension(3 years) of Boldin to reduce his cap number and keep him around.
    or put him in the backfield ala randall cobb

    I could definitely see them giving Boldin a restructure/extension. He is going to be crucial until we have a guy that can step in for him, which right now, I don't trust Doss to do as an over the top possession guy.

    Sorry, he may need a DC who can move him around, but he was one of the most disruptive defensive secondary players I've ever seen.

    He plays way bigger than his size and while he won't be a shutdown CB, he can be a terror nickel CB or safety IMHO.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Ya I'm not sure where the thoughts that he can't cover come from... I thouht he was better then Claiborne.

    I would agree with your observation on his breaks. I think his long strides hamper him in that department, so he'd have learn to be more choppy in his breaks, which can take an entire OS or full season. Depends on the coach and player.

    Studman takes Patton on routes. Patton takes Studman on releases. They are so different...still tough to prefer one over the other when looking at "highest value balanced with need".

    I really need to find film on Darius Johnson from SMU, Amos Anthony (MidTN), Chad Bumphis (there's a little more out on him now but wtf Bulldog fans?), and even more film on Jasper Collins.

    Speaking of Johnson...that cat can catch anything, apparently --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qn6OyxC3Mg0
    ...but does he always lose his feet in the process?

    IMHO...I don't get the like for Swope.

    I don't think he is any good.

    I'd rather go for a shorter, quicker guy like Marquise Goodwin.

    Everything I'm hearing about this Catapano bloke sounds pretty good, if the Ravens were going 4-3 wonder if he might not be a good selection in the third or something.

    Braxston Cave is an interesting one. Despite his team playing shit in the BCS, he actually had a good game and held Jesse Williams in check fro the most part. I would consider him in the fourth/fifth to compete with Gino.

    Rumor is he was the strongest player on the entire team.

    Cave was the strongest player on the team. He is not the most athletic of linemen. Last year ended early due to foot injury. His level of play was higher before the foot injury than an at any point this season. He is an interesting late round prospect. He can also play guard.

    wow he is listed at 6'3 303 lbs, but it appears to be very good weight, and he looks bigger than that. Looks like a gym monkey to me.

    He's probably not going to be a number 1 receiver but on a team with Torrey and Boldin he can essentially be Wes Welker on steroids; he's got all the quickness underneath that is impossible for LB's to cover and he also has the straight line speed that Welker doesn't have to get deep. I'd love to add him as a 3rd WR.

    In terms of WR in the Senior Bowl practice today, the two guys who stand out are Quinton Patton and Tavares King. King in particular is tall and would fit the deep-ball offense. He is running very crisp routes for a tall guy and creating separation.

    Quinton Patton is an all-around solid receiver. He fights the press, has good hands, and is solid all the way around. I would like either of these guys drafted, if Boldin is cut.

    Lane Johnson is rising quickly as a LT prospect. Everyone is projecting him as a true LT because of his height and arm length. He's a guy who might shoot past us at 32 but if he drops he's a good bet to get picked by us.

    He's improved every single game he played in college at OU.
