    Didn't say anything about 5'9"....?

    NFL.com has him listed on it's draft profile page at 5'10" 205 lbs. All the players I listed were either his height or an inch taller..

    Darren Sproles is 3'2"

    If he can play, he can play, height be damned.

    Why not? I'm not the one comparing great players who were not 5'-9" with a draft pick that is 5'-9".

    Because of your obsession with our midget backup QB?

    Were you always this way, or did the whole McGloin thing turn you into "that guy?"

    Bottom line is when it comes to addressing weaknesses, no team has been appeared more decisive and aggressive as Raiders.

    And with that...Happy Friday and Rounds 2 and 3!

    Colleges don't protect WR. Bosa wasn't kicked out of OS's bowl game for targeting. I get what you're saying. No, really, I don't.

    Dude has a great arm and lots of raw talent. But he'll sit behind Sanchez, shudder, for two years until Sanchez gets hurt, he has a decent season when Sanchez gets hurt again, and some team will overpay for his potential in free agency.

    Earl Thomas and Karl Joseph are damn near identical size-wise it's a total non issue.

    I dunno man. I see the physical talent on vids. Consistently good brain talent is harder to develop in a QB.

    We'll see if Osweiler is worth to dollars. But I think most people are not expecting to see him earn it yet, if ever. Houston figured he'd had enough development to be ready for the next level. He might be. But for him the next level is competent starter.

    Lynch is several years of development away from that, but miracles have happened before so...

    Did I read a stat that Lynch only completed 4 passes over 40 yards in his career? Seems fishy for a guy with a big arm slinging the ball around.
