    Greg Lloyd Jr.

    Is he still at UConn? if so, anyone watching him play today. Michigan is moving the ball pretty well.
    never too early to begin thinking about the draft.

    #95. Had a couple of nice tackles but Michigan is moving the ball pretty easily on their D.

    He is to light to play DE against those big tackles. He needs to be a LB. He is a big hitter.

    FA Signings- Donte Moncrief, Mark Barron and Steve Nelson

    Trade 1/20-3/66-3/84 to BUF for 1/9
    Trade 5/142-6/194-6/207 to MIA for 4/116

    Surprised he's wearing his dad's #95. Anyone know if they patched up their differences?

    I'm surprised more kids from NFL players are not in the league. I would have thought that some of the 70's Steeler players would have had children playing on our today Steeler teams. Actually they would now be retired by now but, still the same. Just goes to show the special gift of talent that graces the few. I'm sure it has something to do with some of them having the opportunity of having dads with big money and being set up in life with an education and finacial backing. No need to play football.

    I'm sure alot of the parents don't want their kids to go through the physical issues many of them are dealing with and have steered them in other directions or sports. Example being Mark Schlereth whose son is now a MLB pitcher.

    I agree, I think it is huge with the parents feeling the physical pain they probably now have and to direct their kids in a different direction.

    i like lloyd jr. i missed the game on sat but i saw him play a lot the last couple of seasons. he is a really good tackler. he would be worth a late round pick imo.

    Well, his dad was sure worth where we took him in the 6th round (of course, in today's NFL, with more teams than we had in 1987, plus adding in compensatory picks and such, the 110th pick that we used to get Lloyd back then would be taken in the 4th round now instead of the 6th).
    Plan A: Trade 1.20/3.66/5.141 & 2020 3rd to BUF for 1.9 (ILB Devin White)

    Plan B:
    1.20 TE T.J. Hockenson, Iowa 6-5 251
    2.52 WR Kelvin Harmon, N.C. State 6-2 221
    3.66 OLB Chase Winovich, Michigan 6-3 256
    3.83 S Amani Hooker, Iowa 5-11 210
    4.122 ILB David Long Jr., West Virginia 5-11 227
    5.141 CB Isaiah Johnson, Houston 6-2 208
    6.175 ILB Bobby Okereke, Stanford 6-1 239
    6.192 RB Travis Homer, Miami 5-10 201
    6.207 OG Hjalte Froholdt, Arkansas 6-5 306
    7.219 DE Armon Watts, Arkansas 6-5 300

    I was thinking the same thing; they (were) estranged, yet he sports the number. Lloyd (Jr.) really was unimpressive (this coming from Lloyd being my favorite player of th epast). I wouldn't even attribute it to his knee, because even in games before the knee, he wasn't particularlyimpressive.

    He is too slow (on that note, he's put on A LOT of weight--259 lbs?).
    I wasn't hired for my disposition.
