    We're going to be in good hands whenever Ozzie moves on.

    FWIW, paraphrasing Eric about mid-way through: If you're drafting a receiver, draft a receiver who's tough, competitive and has a tremendous work ethic. People get seduced by combine numbers, college catches, where they line-up, etc., and all of that's important. But what makes Torrey special is his personally, work ethic, demeanor and drive.

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    Man that guy is good, he knows what the fuck he's talking about. I would absolutely love to get him under the truth serum in a room and find out everything he thinks of this draft. I bet he's a really tough interviewer too, kind of get the feeling Erik plays the bad cop, Ozzie plays the good cop role.

    Sounds like DeAndre Hopkins.

    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.

    Re: WRs

    It seems with all the hype surrounding Hopkins, we may have to jump in front of either the Texans or the Vikings to get him. Not sure if the Ravens play that game of moving up for a WR in the 1st. However, I have been curious of how many times when asked about WRs, the Ravens have mentioned how much they are looking forward to seeing the players already on the roster (Doss, Thompson, Streeter, Reed with Williams not being mentioned a lot) and kind of change cater the answer. I believe I've heard that from multiple front offices and coaches the same statement (towing the company line). Smokescreens you think?

    There is a lot of buzz around Hopkins and the Rams. He has already had multiple visits and is again visiting today I think, with Fisher attending.

    I highly doubt the Ravens would be willing to move up to 16 or 22 (the Rams spots) to get Hopkins.

    In the real world, I can't imagine us moving up 10 spots or so for anyone.

    I'd say maybe 5 maximum. Unless they really really love a certain player that hits the 20's.

    I keep eyeing #25.

    Betting the FO doesn't value Eifert as much as I do lol, but I can see us having top-tier value on Cyprien based on his excellent positional skill-set, range and strong "Joker" potential. Super-freaky athletics aside, he's what GM's hope that Ziggy becomes. DEN or NE could snag him just ahead us, so MIN's #25 would look like the place to land.

    Hearing a lot of QB buzz lately on Nassib, Barkley and Manuel. If Jacksonville shows their hand in any way as far as looking for a QB at 33 it could make 32 very valuable. Even if they dont people air on the side of caution when trying to get their QB, could fetch a nice haul to move down a few spots.

    Re: WRs

    I like this guy Stedman Bailey. He's totally overshadowed by Geno Smith and Trayvon Austin, it's crazy. He had like 114 receptions, 1600 yds, 25 TDs. I know he's only 5'10" (so are Greg Jenning, Steve Smith (Carolina), Wes Welker, etc) or whatever, but you can't ignore his production. He's one of the best route runners in this draft and could probably immediately come in and get 70+ catches in the slot. NFLDraftScout has him projected as a late 2nd rounder, early 3rd rounder.

    Studman is terrific. I love his game and how he uses his mighty 5'10 body to wall DBs away from the ball.
    I've been challenged though in trying to determine how or whether his game/skills will translate to the NFL.
    It seems as if many FOs are challenged as well, which is why I think he's been tracked as 3rd or 4th RV since the late fall.

    Re: WRs

    I think his game would translate well into the NFL, I could even see him being a go-to receiver, with Torrey and Jacoby taking the safeties deep. Walter Football has a nice Scouting Report:

    Strengths:
    Excellent hands
    Quickness
    Superb route-runner
    Intelligent
    Good yards after the catch
    Athletic
    Durable
    Improved each year
    Unselfish
    Can be effective versus double-teams
    Ready to compete quickly

    Weaknesses:
    Short
    Will speed translate to NFL?
    Could be best as a third receiver
    Will he be limited to the slot receiver?
    Doesn't project to contribute as a special teams returner


    "He thrived against LSU's incredible secondary comprised of Tyrann Mathieu, Morris Claiborne, Eric Reid and Brandon Taylor. Bailey caught eight passes for 115 yards and a touchdown versus the Tigers' stellar defensive backs."

    He can play against Elite NFL Quality DBs

    Lawd. Unless he falls out of the 3rd round, Keenan Allen will be drafted at the age of 21.
    If he was 100% at his pro day, he would be a sure-fire 1st rounder. Still might be.

    I like Stedman. But yes, you can ignore his production. He played in WVUs offense. Those numbers don't mean that much. Not tryna knock the guy though, I wouldn't be upset at all if we ended up with him on day two
