Clowney's interview yesterday said he wants to be at a contender. Most sportsmen will say that, and any side with Wilson has to be a chance, particularly if they do this well even while **** the bed. Be interesting to see where he goes. He was also playing injured most of the season, sports hernia, apparently.
Cowboys need a DL or 2. We will have him for a pie and coke

Simmons looks big for a saftey, but definitely has the speed for it.
Yeah someone is going to draft him and they'll officially list him as a Safety or a LB, and ultimately it wont matter, because if he's played the way he should be, it will be as a hybrid who can do a little of both, So his designation isnt super important

the distinction between SS and LB is becoming pretty blurred with how teams are using Nickle packages more as a base. He's going to be in the box making plays in the run game or covering RB/TE inside of the sticks. That's going to be his role. He's excellent in press coverage, he's got enough speed to hang with RB's short term (wheel routes against real speedy RBsmight be a problem if the QB has time to let it develop) and the size to cope with TEs
You can totally see that. Looks as big as Bam Bam Kam in pads - I just checked the numbers and he is an inch taller. Doesnt seem to hit as hard, but looks good too.
Yeah Kam is a great comp for him.
As you said, not as physical as Kam in hitting, but probably a better cover safety. So that's the trade off

TBH, in a modern player, its probably a better trait with a pass heavy league.

Antonio Gates is hanging up his cleats. Anyone disagree that this Charger will be a 1st ballot HOFer?

We all missed Kevin Stefanski becoming the Brown HC. Former Vikings OC.

Surely this is career suicide?!?

Shocked. He’s only 28, with 8 years in the league. He implied in his announcement it was due to injuries, and you have to think it’s concussions specifically. He’s earned $60M+ so he’s set. Good for him, but a sad loss to the Panthers none-the-less.

Yup. He has shoulder issues too right? Very similar problems to Sean Lee. Shock horror, both are MLBs

Give me $60m and I'd probably retire too.

Chiefs have to come from behind, AGAIN, but get it done at home.
The plucky underdog Titoons, go back to Nashville with heads held high.

Having a look at the stats, that scoreline is VERY VERY flattering for the Packers. Jimmy G threw is 8 times for 6 completions and 77 yards. 285 rushing yards, and 220 for 9ers Mostert with 4 TDs. WOW!
