https://twitter.com/ChrisSteuber/sta...60182451933184I'm told that scouts from the #Chiefs, #Falcons, #Giants, #Jaguars & #Titans are attending the #Florida, #FloridaState game today. #CFB #NFL
A lot of good defensive prospects in that game, especially on both D-Lines.

Some darn good athletes out on that field.
Yes they seeing a very good game too
I'd have no problem if TD's first 3 picks were Warner, Floyd, and Gillislee.
http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...-team-buildingWest Virginia WR Tavon Austin (vs. Kansas, Saturday 2:30 p.m. ET, Fox Sport Network):
Probably the most electric player in college football, Austin's problem isn't hard to figure. He's listed at 5-9 and 171 pounds, and chances are he's even smaller than that. That said, one evaluator called Austin a "smaller Percy Harvin." Another college scout said, "He's a niche-type player -- you look at players like him, it's probably a little bit like a (Dexter) McCluster, that 'tweener type. Is he a receiver? Is he a tailback? How do you use him? Here's how: You find a way. He's a package guy, though, and you take him knowing you have to design things for him. Most college offenses have that guy; doesn't fit a position, but he's such a special athlete." Size probably keeps him out of Round 1, but he's an intriguing prospect for just about everyone.
So, Evan Silva of Rotoworld just suggested that if the Raiders plan to stick with the zone blocking, they could look to trade Darren McFadden during the offseason since he's a bad scheme fit and enters the final year of his deal in 2013. DMC is 25 years old and would earn about $5.8M next season... or about $300K more than Michael Turner's salary, who likely won't be around anymore. The Falcons can still draft one more between-the-tackles RB this upcoming April, as a safeguard due to DMC's injury history and after letting Snelling leave this offseason, so your new "committee" trio next year could potentially be McFadden-Rodgers-Bell/Gillislie/Bernard/Ellington/etc.

Dream: Trade for DMC, draft Lattimore in the 2nd/3rd/whatever he is worth. THat way if we didn't bring back DMC we have Lattimore ready after a year of recovery and if we do bring back DMC then we won't have HB problems ever again.
^Looks good to me. Speaking as a Georgia fan, Lattimore was an absolute nightmare to go against. But if he can get healthy, I don't doubt that kid's future at all. Same with DMC with a lighter workload/expectations on this team.
^Reggie Bush is on pace for 2,500 yards-from-scrimmage over the past two seasons and has become a much better inside runner, but he also turns 28 years old next March and publicly stated that he wants to stay with the Dolphins.
espnThis upcoming offseason, Atlanta Falcons S William Moore will be amongst a group of fine players at the position that will be hitting free agency -- so long as their current team doesn't re-sign or franchise tag them. It's a group that also includes Ed Reed, Jairus Byrd, Dashon Goldson and Louis Delmas. After injuries plagued Moore during his initial three seasons in Atlanta, he's become a stalwart for the team in 2012, and has 75 tackles, two forced fumbles, four picks and a sack through ten games.
In other words, he's making himself some money in this, his contract season.
The franchise tag tender value for safeties was $6.2 million for 2012 (down from $8.8 million in 2011 thanks to the new tag value calculations in the current CBA), so that's a number to keep in mind when it comes time for Moore's negotiations. Though players generally bristle at being tagged -- instead of getting a long-term deal -- that $6.2 million for 2013 would be about ten times what Moore will make in 2012 ($615,000).
If Atlanta chooses not to tag or re-sign Moore, he'll certainly draw significant interest elsewhere, as it appears he's up there with the best of the young safeties in the league when healthy.
We'll bring him back. We have no depth behind him.
Dolphins placed LT Jake Long (triceps) on injured reserve, ending his season.
The No. 1 pick in the 2008 draft will end up missing six games total in the past two seasons. He's battled up arm injuries since 2010, which may explain the dropoff in his effectiveness. Long is due to hit free agency in the offseason. It would cost the organization over $15 million to apply the franchise tag, which could signal the end of his Dolphins career. Long's agent will like try to set the market with his next contract.rotoworldA team source tells the Palm Beach Post re-signing LT Jake Long will be a "top priority" for the Dolphins this offseason.
The developing consensus has been that Long's days in Miami are numbered, but the Dolphins will reportedly have upwards of $50 million in cap space this offseason. Using the franchise tag on Long would cost $15.4 million, while any long-term deal would likely have to include in the neighborhood of $40 million guaranteed. Long's play has slipped the past two seasons as injuries have inhibited his range of motion, but he'll still be only 28 in 2013. How rookie Jonathan Martin fares in his absence over the next month could be critical to Long's Miami future.
