    Did not even remember Conley. Had to look that up. 96 draft. Should have put Davis on the list. that for the info Phillyesq.

    Thanks Chadman thats the insite and kiperish post I was looking for.

    Side not here. While looking up Conley guys on here are right that Drafting has been real ruff.
    04 class only Ben left if Starks does not comeback.
    05 only Miller.
    06 NO ONE
    07 would have been 1 Woodley. But Gay and Spaeth are back
    08 NO ONE
    09 Hood and Johnson (if he even makes it out of camp)
    10 5 are here still
    11 6 of still here
    12 6 make the cut so far.

    Wow seems bad. But maybe not that different in years past. Plus there are still some UDFA from the last few years.

    No one ever asked Cowher why he soured on Steven Conley who showed flashes as a rush DE early in 1996 and especially in 1997.

    You know, in retrospect, while most posters are enamoured with Jarvis Jones, we've totally dismissed Damontre Moore. Moore has a better vertical (35.5"), better 3 cone (4.37s) & better Broad Jump (10'2") along with pretty much the same Bench numbers (19 reps). And while their 40 times are comparable- the difference is that Moore has been struggling with leg issues while Jones has not.

    Their college careers speak of great similarities.

    If Jones and Moore are both there the pick would be Moore over Jones I bet. But I think now that Worilds gets this season to succeed or fail. I also don't think the back up plan is a 1st rd OLB. But a OLB will be a pick at some point in the draft. Thanks for the insites Chadman. I am thinking CB,S or maybe TE,WR at 17.

    Funny how things work- over the last 24 hours, Chadman is starting to come around to OLB being the pick.

    I had remembered him as a total bust, but looking back, I didn't realize that he had 4 sacks in a reserve role in 1997.
