  1. COREY DAVIS, WR, Western Michigan 6'3, 213 lbs, Senior Round Projection: 1st Stats 2016- 97 catches, 1500 yds, 19 TDs 2015- 90 catches, 1436 yds, 12 TDs 2014- 78 catches, 1408 yds, 15 TDs 2013- 67 catches, 941 yds, 6 TDs http://www.espn.com/college-football/player/_/id/545923/corey-davis Who is Corey Davis? Had Davis declared for the NFL in 2015, one scout says he could have gone late first round. The only other MAC receiver ever taken in Round 1? Marshall’s Randy Moss, in 1998. But Davis returned to school, in large part to work toward his degree. On the field this season, coaches have slid him around the formation to create opportunities—Davis lines up in the slot, out wide, and runs nearly every route. He has been swarmed by double teams, yet is still averaging six catches for 99 yards and a touchdown per game. ... When scouts visit campuses to do recon on prospects, they’ll often ask: Does the player love football? Davis shows without telling, by staying after every practice to shag balls. Sometimes he’ll do distraction drills, implemented by Fleck and Simon: They’ll run through more than 100 ball drills, sometimes using cut-open footballs, other times lacrosse or tennis balls. This perhaps explains why drops are rare for Davis. ... “I’ve gone against Darqueze Dennard, Eli Apple…” he rattles off. Davis has 617 receiving yards and four touchdowns in seven career games against Big Ten teams, highlighted by a 10-catch, 154-yard, one-touchdown performance against Michigan State in the 2015 season opener. http://mmqb.si.com/mmqb/2016/09/28/nfl-draft-corey-davis-western-michigan-first-round There is no denying that Davis has feasted on questionable competition and that Western Michigan's spread offense has padded his numbers. He has faced top talent over his career, however, and the production was still there with 450 receiving yards and four touchdowns in five career games against Big Ten competition entering the 2016 season. http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/2061005/corey-davis Cutups vs Wisconsin: http://draftbreakdown.com/video/corey-davis-vs-wisconsin-2016/ (PFF grades vs Wisconsin https://www.profootballfocus.com/college-cotton-bowl-grades-wisconsin-rides-rushing-attack-to-victory/) vs Ohio: http://draftbreakdown.com/video/corey-davis-vs-ohio-2016-2/ vs Buffalo: http://draftbreakdown.com/video/corey-davis-vs-buffalo-2016/ Highlights
  2. Well that...doesn't necessarily inspire confidence.
  3. Another one to pass the time... Believe this is the highest I've seen Foster. He's also pretty positive on Adams, Lattimore, and Davis.
  4. Haha. I had the same thought. Not to mention that those teams knew he was the best player on their team and they had to stop him.
  5. Lots of interesting stuff here on Davis. Execs don't appear to be sold...at least the ones Bucky talked to.
  6. Sitting here waiting for FA like... Seriously, I'm dying for news.
  7. Ballard was under Dorsey, who is still the GM there. I still see your point though.
  8. JAMAL ADAMS, S, LSU 6'1, 213 lbs, Junior Round Projection: 1st Stats 2016- 76 tackles, 7.5 for loss, 1 sack, 1 INT, 1 FF, 1FR, 4 PD 2015- 67 tackles, 5.5 for loss, 0 sacks, 4 INT, 1 FF, 1 FR, 6 PD 2014- 66 tackles, 5 for loss, 1 sack, 0 INT, 0 FF, 0 FR, 4 PD http://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/jamal-adams-1.html Who is Jamal Adams? "The people who have been at that program the longest think he might be the best leader LSU has had in years. He's a no-doubt first-rounder. He can play all over the field and he could have an immediate impact on defense just like Landon Collins did coming out. I love him. I think he's a winner." - AFC area scout ... Natural-born leader of men. Well-built. Will not hesitate for one second as a hitter. ... Interchangeable safety with a sheriff's mentality. Adams is a physical tone-setter who should thrive near the line of scrimmage or in a robber role. Should be a commanding presence in the locker room early on and his do-as-I-do play demeanor could be the catalyst for turning a struggling defense around quickly. http://www.nfl.com/draft/2017/profiles/jamal-adams?id=2557979 In 2016, his role for the Tigers has shifted from playmaking zone defender to shutdown cover man, when needed. Coaches asked Adams to lock down high-profile tight ends in games against Alabama and Mississippi. Alabama’s O.J. Howard managed one catch for minus-three yards against Adams, and Ole Miss’s Evan Engram caught three balls for 15 yards. ... “I told him not to compare this kid to Troy Polamalu, because Troy is my favorite player I ever played with,” [Ryan] Clark says. “But Jamal has that same explosion and instincts. He feels the game the same way Troy did.” http://mmqb.si.com/mmqb/2016/11/30/nfl-draft-2017-jamal-adams-lsu-top-safety-ryan-clark-tyrann-mathieu And while earning comparisons to the great Honey Badger is quite the compliment, frankly, it isn't enough. At six-foot, 211 pounds, Adams is considerably bigger than the 5-foot-9, 186 pound Arizona Cardinals standout and is a much cleaner prospect off the field than Mathieu was at LSU, as well. Whereas Mathieu's repeated failed drug tests led to his suspension from LSU and his slip on draft day, the folks at LSU can't speak highly enough about Adams, who was the first player of the Les Miles era to ever be named a team captain for a game (Louisiana-Monroe) as a true freshman. http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/news/top-nfl-draft-prospects-lsus-jamal-adams-is-honey-badger-2-0/ Cutups vs Alabama http://draftbreakdown.com/video/jamal-adams-vs-alabama-2016/ vs Texas A&M http://draftbreakdown.com/video/jamal-adams-vs-texas-am-2016/ vs Wisconsin http://draftbreakdown.com/video/jamal-adams-vs-wisconsin-2016/ Highlights
  9. To let a player of his caliber walk is almost unheard of. Then when you add in the fact that he's a locker room leader, the face of their defense, and an all-around nice guy with a great story, they'd be nuts to let him walk. It would create a chilling effect within that entire locker room. I agree; I don't think he hits FA. But if he did....JRob needs to be first in line to speak with him.
  10. More LaCanfora speculation. If anything, you have to feel better about him not getting tagged.
  11. On the Walter Football rumor page, there's only one link for the Titans. It's from late January when McCormick mentioned the possibility of McCourty getting cut. I'm getting pretty anxious for FA to get here. Can't wait to see what we do.
  12. It's part of the reason I've been more on the Davis hype-train lately. When it's all said and done, I think Adams goes before 5. If he's there though, I would absolutely take him.
  13. Interesting note on Adams... Last year, we saw Jalen Ramsey come into the combine with safety size and then test like a cornerback. This year, Jamal Adams figures to do exactly the same. Listed at 6-1, 214 pounds, the junior safety has the type of movement skills capable of executing any task in coverage. So much so that the LSU defense legitimately asked him to play every position on their defense (besides on the line). Of his full workload, 14.2 percent of his snaps came lined up as a true linebacker, 14.1 percent came as a strong safety, 32.8 percent came as a slot corner, 38.5 percent came as a free safety and he even took three snaps as a true corner on the edge. The result was PFF’s highest-graded safety in all of football, and a top-10 lock in the upcoming draft. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fancy-stats/wp/2017/02/21/2017-nfl-draft-these-five-prospects-are-going-to-dominate-the-combine/
  14. Three Tiers. You can sign 1 player from the top tier, 2 from the middle tier, and 3 from the lower tier. Who ya got?
  15. Just seems like a perfect match for both parties.
