We can get plenty of good defensive players starting in Round 2 who will be very good after they take they mandatory redshirt season.
2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 511 189
3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 66 240-Jarvis Jones replacement
4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 64 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 67 322-raw talent with ton of upside
7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 510 210
7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5 10 185-need WR depth and returner
As long as Ebron isn't viewed as a TE, and more a 'big WR', he fits a need.
Schiavone's Race Career:
I'm really on the fence about ebron
I worry about his hands and when I watched him play, I just didn't see a special player. Sure, he has some highlight reel plays, but I never saw a game changer like some here do. Seems to drop some easy ones as well. Reportedly had a bad pro day catching the ball, not that it means a whole lot. He could also be extremely productive if he puts all that athleticism to good use.
if we go pass catcher, I prefer him over the WRs benjamin and lee.
My point was that if you are going to give Ben the benefit of a doubt regarding the aforementioned allegations, then you should extend Pouncey the same benefit for merely wearing a baseball cap...
Was in in poor taste? Insensitive? Absolutely...
Does it have anywhere near the gravity of a rape allegation? No...
I am not impressed with Ebron- at least not as a 1st round pick. I watched him play in a few games, especially against my Alma mater, and he dropped passes, and frankly, was a non factor. He dropped a sure TD in the endzone that day too. I would say that a good 80% of the time, he lined up as a WR against us.. If he would drop into the 2nd round, then maybe..... I believe this alternating between D and O every year is merely coincidence, and this year we draft D like we did last year.. Welcome aboard, Dennard... He's my pick at 15....
