I always told you 3rd round for him & you always blew my idea & said it was no chance he'd make it out the 1st round.
That was even after the college season ended.
You telling me his combine changed everything & changed your mind when I've been telling you all this time we could get him in the 3rd?
At this point, we probably will be able to get him with TB's 4th.
If you read my comments again you will see I had Lache ranked 3rd among RBs before the combine. I may have said if you want him you better draft him early because chances are he isnt falling very far. Prior to the combine almost everyone had him as the top RB in this class but me really. I have been in love with Sankey for a while now. Yes I compared Lache to guys like CJ and McCoy ability wise but I also say he needs a lot of work. Sankey and Carey have always been my 1-2 those are just more my type of back. As with most positions it is does he fit what you need. Lache actually fits what a lot of teams that need a RB are doing right now. Honestly I prefer workhorse backs still I am very old school. Not sure who told you Lache wouldnt fall out of the 1st, wasnt me. I do believe you will see at least 1 late 1st in this draft but I couldnt tell you which one. 9 of these guys would have been the 1st RB in last year POS class IMO.
Am I the only one thinking that Teams are not as high on Manziel as the so called experts? I really think we will see an Aaron Rodgers like slide.... Also most teams needing QB's are new GMs who are prob unwilling to risk their jobs on perhaps the biggest gamble in draft history.. Johnny either becomes great or busts, no in between with him....... I honestly believe there are three scenarios. Either the Browns take him with their second 1st round pick if they didn't go QB with their first. Or the Texans, or raiders or vikings trade into the first and take him late in the first, or lastly, one of those teams get lucky and he slips to the second like Geno did last season for us...
Bortles should go in the top half of round one.
I am not sure about Manziel but the guy in real trouble is Teddy Bridgewater.
At one point he was looking to be the #1 overall pick on this draft but now with poor workouts he is going to slide on draft day.
I would not be surprised if he goes in round two or if he is not among the top 3 QBs to be taken in this draft.
Teddy Bridgewater - QB - Player
Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater's agent told ProFootballTalk his client has only had one private workout, and the assessment they received was "simply amazing and sharp."
This contradicts a report from ESPN's Chris Mortensen stating Bridgewater had looked shaky in his private workouts -- which is obviously impossible considering he has only had one. There is blood in the water surrounding Bridgewater, and NFL teams will say anything or leak any information if it means a coveted player will fall to them. Lying season is in full swing.
Apparently Mike Mayock begs to differ.
Will Bridgewater slide to No. 8 after poor workout reviews?

- Teddy Bridgewater played 39 games at the Louisville. His completion percentage was 68.4 percent, including a crisp, 71.0 percent effort in 13 games last season.
Accuracy wasn't considered an issue. Until, apparently, today.
Bridgewater's Pro Day was held today in Louisville. Twenty-nine teams were in attendance. The Vikings sent coach Mike Zimmer, General Manager Rick Spielman and offensive coordinator Norv Turner.
By most accounts, it wasn't a good 30-minute workout for Teddy. So the official Tearing Down Of Teddy process has begun. Who knows how far it will go, but this is a natural part of the process, particularly when a guy isn't that clear-cut No. 1 overall talent. And even then, with as much time between the scouting combine and the draft, even a guy like Andrew Luck withstood some arrows from critics and those hoping to muddy the waters so he'd fall to them.
NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock was on hand for Bridgewater's performance, which was aired on the NFL Network. Mayock, who considers (at least for now) Bridgewater to be the top QB in the draft, called the workout "average at best" and was clearly disappointed that Bridgewater didn't seize the moment.
Mayock said he saw "a lot of flutters, a lot of inaccuracy."
Bridgewater told reporters he thought "it went pretty well."
NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt, the former Cowboys executive, said Turner told him the workout was "pretty good." That, of course, could mean anything. Turner could have just been trying to be polite or vague. Team representatives aren't known for their pubic honesty when it comes to player evaluations this time of year.
Welcome to the draft, Teddy. The road will get bumpier before it gets smoother. Whether this means Bridgewater slides to No. 8, where the Vikings are, or even further, is, unfortunately, something no one can do more than guess at until the draft is held in May.
Next into the fire is Blake Bortles, whose workout is Wednesday at Central Florida. The Vikings will be there.
Mr hasty, you're being hasty. his proday, and private work outs are two different things. rnd 2 is laughable based on his tape.
It happens all the time for reasons that are not clear at the time.
No one is looking at any of these guys the way they looked and talked about Andrew Luck.
Everyone wants to dump on Johnny Football calling his rise hype or otherwise not real even though he had an awesome workout at his pro day yet Bridgewater is somehow bulletproof.
Even if Bridgewater goes first overall that does not guarantee him any success in the NFL.
Jamarcus Russel and Ryan Leaf came into the league with tons of hype only to fail badly.
You're taking this too far. You don't have to convince me that guys slide on draft day. I know they do. Clausen was supposed to go between picks 5-10 and ended up in rnd 2 (prolly should gone undrafted)...
I was merely pointing out that your use of "bad private work outs" as a reason for his slide was not necessarily the case. That looks to be bogus as we're finding out. It was confirmed that he's only had 1 private work out thus far... this is all independent of his "proday"..
anyway, carry on.
He better be having amazing personal team workouts or he will slide. If you skip the combine workouts then you had better nail the pro day. If he is even just okay he's dropping.
