    Drafting trends

    There are a few trends that still stand true:

    1) Power 5 teams
    2) age they like younger players
    3) past trend with FA spending ( this year they haven't spent) is to draft a player at a position they sought out in FA.
    4) Tomlin and Colbert visit pro days together.

    So lets break it down...

    proday where Tomlin and Colbert went together.

    Clemson- Etienne
    Georgia- Azeez Oljuri , Stokes,
    Auburn-?
    FSU- ?
    Bama-Harris, Dickerson, Surtain,
    Penn ST- Freiermuth, Parsons, JAyson Oweh
    Michigan- Mayfield, Payne,
    OSU- Second round players...Davis, Browning, Werner, Sermon,
    ND-JOK, Eichenberg

    not sure how true it is, but I read on another board that colbert/tomlin didn't go to to Vtech pro day when they drafted edmunds.
    maybe it was one or the other

    That was this board. I remember someone bringing it up in a thread specifically about Edmonds.
    From the 2010-2020 season, (A 10 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks.

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the playoffs in the 70ís...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches

    Some schools are having two pro days so it’s something to watch leading up to the draft.

    Did you deliberately leave out OL options at the schools Tomlin/Colberthave been seen at?

    I saw Tomlin specifically talking to Josh Meyers at Ohio and Trey Hill at Georgia in the Pro Day highlights..
    The people that are trying to make the world worse never take a day off, why should I?

    Light up the darkness.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if this was our Day 2 pick. We like Big 10 players.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    I would rather select Trey Sermon in Round 3.
