a little info.....i think you should consider taking off welch. i went to school with him, he isnt exactly the classiest person behind the scenes if you spend time with him outside of athletics, reminds me of jeff reid. while he is a good kicker he also has some injury problems because he doesnt keep in shape during the offseason. leg injuries the past couple of years during spring ball and at the start of fall ball, this year i think a groin/quad injury...im not trying to hate on him because he is a nice guy just not a steeler type in my opinion.

hey skl,

do you think a team might burn a late-round draft choice on Chapman knowing he probably won't play his rookie season or do NFL teams tend to pass on guys who blow out their ACL?

I think he becomes a luxury pick to a team rebuilding with some comp picks. I could see him landing with the Cheats also.

SKL,

I'm going to go against your request for the purposes of discussion.

I realize Ta'amu has been shut down by elite offensive lines this season. Why are the specific factors in your ratings of "stinks." I only watched 3 of his games this season. 2 he played very well in and commanded constant double teams. The other he disappeared in.

Are you attending the Senior Bowl this year?

The eagles have gambled picks in the 4th or 5th round on guys like this in the past. There was a corner and a tight end. Both had high grades and were coming off injuries. Can't remember their names -- neither guy made any impact.

Wisconsin CB Jack Ikegwuonu (4.131 in 2008) and Florida TE Cornelius Ingram (5.153 in 2009).

Good memory. Your encyclopedic knowledge never ceases to amaze.

I thought I remembered the corner having a name similar to iguana and being from Wisconsin, but I wasn't entirely sure.

He doesn't stink....I just wouldn't touch him until about round 5. He has no balance is completely on skates at times and plays like a man about 100 pounds lighter than he is. Way too inconsistent. I will not be at the game but I have been here the last 3 days.

I'm not that smart...I'm no Ernie Adams. :wink: I remembered Ikegwuonu because I had him in my mock that year (6th or 7th round, though, not 4th)...thought his name was Jake rather than Jack, though. I had forgotten that Philly also drafted an injured TE a year later, but when you mentioned it, a Florida Gator came to mind, but I could not remember the name, so I looked it up on Google (then included where the Iggles drafted those guys, since I was already there).
