Living the dream with a victory lap in South Beach. It’s on tune-in radio. Just search for Dan Patrick live. He has an app and a podcast you can listen to about 1 hr after it’s aired. Burrow already pimping Gatorade. Wonder how much dinero he made for that! Good interview so far (listening to it on SXM App). Joe Cool was in full effect. JB: Success comes from preparation. What I do on Mon Tues Weds etc, not Saturday. Learned how to prepare from JT Barrett. DP: Do you have any doubts? DP: Are you glad the Bengals questions are over (after asking a few Bengals questions)? DP: What exactly is the dance you were doing? JB: Get the Gat. I can dance a little bit. DP: It’s not exactly a dance is it – more like a move. DP: Who’s the best athlete on the team? JB: Clyde. No question. Other notes – Reggie Bush was his favorite player growing up and he became a Saints fan when they drafted him. Stingley impressed him last year when he threw at him in bowl practice. Post-interview during commercial break: knocked over McLovin with his last pass. One of the Danettes said something about it being the best interview yet, and general comments about his confidence. Sick. Just watched it. Dude is so good at hovering right at that median between confident and cocky. Really cool stuff. I like how Joe knows when he needs to be diplomatic and knows when it’s okay to just answer truthfully. He’s apparently got a sponsorship deal w/ Gatorade (talking up its “Volt” product). Tua was on yesterday and did something similar except he was pimping Autotrader. He really is. He talks like a pro that’s done these interviews forever.
And no offensive lineman has ever just moved me off the ball or bullied me.
I speak three languages. I do pass rush. I can drop in coverage and cover anybody you want me to cover. I can play the run. And no offensive lineman has ever just moved me off the ball or bullied me. So I feel like that’s what makes me more dimensional. Those words are likely music to Dan Quinn’s ears. Its looking like the Dallas Cowboys are going to have a heavy secondary need after free agency. C.J. Henderson cannot only fly in speed, as was evident by his 4.39 40-yard dash, but he also put up 20 reps in the bench press to show his strength. With Okudah and Henderson already selected, the Eagles will be staring at the board with Las Vegas and Jacksonville picking in front of them and both have cornerback needs. It shouldnt take much for them to jump three spots. The price would be worth it to get a true man coverage player like Kristian Fulton.
The Raiders shocked the world when they selected Clelin Ferrell at No. 4 overall in last years draft. They thought Ferrell was a good, productive player but what really sold them on the pick was Ferrel’s character lining up with how they’re trying top build their culture. Kenneth Murray fits that mold this year. He’s a player who understands the work ethic it takes to be great. Mayock also said the Raiders need to add big-time playmakers on defense. Murrays 4.52-second 40-yard dash, 38-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-9-inch broad jump proved just how effective of a downhill linebacker he is. If Fulton was still on the board, he could be a target for the Jaguars. They could still look to cornerback here, but when a playmaker like Queen is on the board to address a major position of need at linebacker, it would be hard for Jacksonville to pass on him. I dont think they will. With no sweets-spot offensive tackles or pass rushers left on the board, I have the Dolphins trading back a few spots to pick up an extra fourth-round pick and still get the offensive tackle they want.
Jones is a smooth mover with a high upside. Five offensive tackles in the first 21 picks? Wide receiver is a big need for the Buffalo Bills. Weve seen Tee Higgins and Laviska Shenault Jr. mocked at No. 22 overall, but I would like to introduce a new name to the mix. Justin Jefferson was one of the most productive receivers of this college football season. He had the most receptions and receiving yards from the slot, and also had one of the highest contested-catch rates. In Indianapolis, his 4.43-seconds 40-yard dash, 37.5-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-6-inch broad jump solidified him as one of the most athletic receivers in the class. Going into the combine, Cesar Ruizs name was in the mix for the top interior offensive tackle. Leaving Indianapolis, the word around town was that hes not just in the mix, but hes at the top. The way things are trending, it looks more and more likely that Ruiz is going Round 1, and the New England Patriots are a team that could swoop in on him early.
