    I'm waiting on Wynn and Davenport to leak, they seem like rather large omissions, Hurst as well but they may be scared off by his heart thing.

    It seems like it would be a nice place to bring Hurst in and let the doctors poke and prod him. But frankly I wasn't that high on him to begin with. I'm not as down on Bryan as I was. The guy definitely gets up field. But he does it with such reckless abandon that he has no idea what to do once he gets up field. He is your classic guy that you can fool with screens all day. Or who will get up field but then do nothing to actually bring the QB down. His quick first step is actually pretty good but I hate how he lacks any game plan to finish and has basically no awareness when he is doing it.

    He's very raw. His burst/timing off the snap is ridiculous, I saw several plays where he is off the ball and nearly engaged with an OL before 1 or 2 of his teammates even get their hands off the ground, but overall I'd rather not take someone in need of as much development as he is at 19.

    I have zero interest in Miller before the third/fourth. I think he is a Combine wonder. There were times within the past two seasons at UCLA where he flat out never looked like he could play. As for Bryan, feh. Feh. And feh again with 19.

    That's exactly what I saw when I watched him too. I honestly sort of doubted his burst because his TFL numbers and sack numbers were so low. And usually when I watch Florida D-lineman I'm very disappointed. Bryan really showed that excellent burst when I watched him. I sort of couldn't believe he didn't have better stats. He needs a lot of work and I'm not sure if his awareness can really be improved or fixed. I mean if you want a guy to just fly up field and disrupt shit he can do that now but I don't see that finish ability that you see with David Irving for example. It's like Bryan gets upfield so quickly but he no idea where he is at once he gets upfield.

    Yeah, he won the shorts olympics. But how many times have we seen a guy with great athletic ability fail on the O-line? It happens all the time and teams just fall in love with that athleticism on a big man. Maybe he could be coached up to that point but I don't want a project on the O-line in the first. Someone like Hernandez or Wynn is a plug and play excellent player. These OT's all scare the shit out of me.

The Eagles are rolling with Barnett/Graham/Bennett/Long, that rotation is seemingly the envy of many at the moment so why not spend another 1st on a pass-rusher?
    If the pass-rushing talent was compelling enough, sure. DT is more interesting to me as a position given the boost to the whole defense.

    Adding Hernandez could very well make this the most talented and dominating O line we've seen in a long time.
    I really don't think it's a stretch to say that a unit like that could reach 'legendary' status.
