I get the feeling that other fan bases lurking on this board are rolling their eyes at this.

Sorry, just not feeling it.

Has the strength and size to be a mauler as a run blocker. No question that it's probably his greatest strength.

Pass blocker, he's got the feet to be a good one, but obviously needs to clean up...

They might get their fair share if they can Lane and get a coach who isn't a muppet. Then, well, there's plenty of appeal to a school like USC.

Mark Andrews' upside is very compelling. I can understand why the staff has made multiple trips out there to see him.

I like Trumbetti a lot too. Probably doesn't have the highest ceiling, but...

I like the angle they're taking here.

Jaylon is the crown jewel. It's not even a question - the kid has the talent to be a multi year starter at any LB spot on defense, and could probably hold his own in practice at any of the secondary...

UND's video profile listed him at 5'11" on signing day. Kinda curious as to why they'd undersell a kid's height.

Doesn't mean the kid can't play if he is 5'11". Just look at Russell. Still, 3...

I think Ty Isaac's problem is that he just kept growing. Teams that were drooling over him early in the process weren't. Heck, even ND wouldn't guarantee him a crack at RB. I think USC's signing...

That, and we're talking about a kid who got banged up and didn't do the combine circuit.

At some point, ratings are arbitrary. Doesn't make him any less of a prospect over the next 3-5 years. ...

I'm actually going the other way - think he turns in maybe 10 sacks.

Not downing on the kid in saying that either - I just see our pass rush coming from other areas while Tuitt works on being a...

Kinlaw is a diamond in the rough. If the injury bug is indeed a thing of the past, we're getting a good one.

A lot of kids coming in with the potential to impact special teams. He's among them.

Admittedly, my Dad's history with nerve injuries are with different parts of the body. He also didn't have access to the kind of physical therapy that Amir has had from day 1. Still, he's 0/2 on...

Yeah, there's plenty of reasons for that.

Sometimes a kid travels just to open the door of communication with a HS staff - and vice versa. Fitts would actually be a prime candidate considering...

Amir Carlisle Update

The real question is, what percentage of the "old" Amir Carlisle are we getting back? 100%? 90? 80?

We're talking about nerve damage, people. This isn't "hamstring - 2-4 weeks" or even an ACL. ...

That's right! The #15's happened earlier in the year - they declined the penalty, but McCarthy and Ferguson both covered a kickoff - hence why Ferguson ended the year with #82.

Thanks for jogging...

Ferguson won't be eligible for 5th year consideration. He played in every game this year on special teams. Think he was even the 2nd #15 on that controversial play in the Pitt game.
