    Glad we don't need a QB cause this draft is supposed to be one of the best which means players should fall to us wherever we pick. Do people really think Darnold is that good? Definitely looking to help boost the Oline I don't see Dotson around forever also wouldn't mind a Guard either at some point. Also CB would be nice Grimes isn't getting any younger and obviously more help for the pass rush.

    Darnold looks that good so far, much better than Rosen and Allen.

    This is a great OT draft and I really hope we get one. Connor Williams, Mike McGlinchey, Orlando Brown and Mitch Hyatt all have a ton of talent.

    OT, DE and CB are my 3 biggesr needs, need replacements for Dotson, Ayers and Grimes sooner or later. S is #4 but could rise depending on what we see during season.

    2 huge games on Saturday which I will definitely be watching #11 Michigan vs #17 Florida at 3:30 and #1 Alabama vs #3 Floride State. Tons of big name prospects against quality opponents.

    Yea I think everyone will be glued to Bama vs FSU, should be a great game. Not much room for error for the losing team. Also looking forward to WVU v VT Sunday night, eager to see how Grier does after his suspension.

    McGlinchey would be a dream come true pick.

    Williams is better than McGlinchey. I expect both to ho higher than we will pick in the draft.

    OT, CB, DE look to be the biggest needs. Have to keep an eye on RB and S throughout the season.

    UCLA vs Texas A&M - Armani Watts, S, A&M

    If add that too, a top safety prospect vs a projected Top 5-10 pick is a good watch too

    I've heard people say Ivey projects to kick inside. He's a good OL prospect regardless and Pamphile could always kick outside or be replaced himself and Sweezy is unknown at this point. Either way it's a good matchup vs a talented UM front 7

    Kareem Hunt went off last night, 148 yards rushing, 5 catches 98 yards, 246 yards from scrimmage is a record in a first game, 3 TD.

    I liked him but didn't expect that. He looked fast, strong, showed good vision.

    There was a reason I said multiple times that the Bucs should pursue Kareem Hunt in the draft. What an absolute stud performance on the road in his first game against the defending champs and best franchise in sports for the last 15 years.

    Most in here did, Aecon and I had him in quite a few mocks. He didn't play like a 3rd round pick and got to start due to injury though, he played like a Top 15 pick who was brought in to be the starter all along. Fournette, McCaffery, Cook and Mixon were betree prospects but will have a hard time topping that Week 1.

    My guy Orlando "Zeus" Brown Jr dominated a Top 3 DL in college football last night on the road at Ohio State. He's more than just a mountain of a man, though his 6'8 340 lb frame should intimidate most DL at any level. He played great against Bosa, Hubbard and the group of top NFL prospects out there last night.

    To me this is no surprise the kid has been a dominant LT since starting as a freshman in the Big 12. His dad had clearly taught him a lot of what he learned over his own NFL career before his death.

    He's been being talked about as a 2nd or 3rd round guy which is insane to me. 2 guys I might take over him in a great OT class next year. You add a player like Brown your getting strength, size, toughness, attitude and a ceiling as high as any OL in years. If his talent and size/strength are developed properly you have a starting LT who will absolutely eat people alive for the next decade.

    Carlton Davis, the CB from Auburn did a great job of covering Deon Cain (Clemsons #1 WR), who will be a 1st rd pick in 18. Davis is projected as a 2nd-3rd rounder next season.

    Also impressed by C. Ferrell DE Clemson, D. Guice RB LSU, and of course, S. Barkley RB Penn St.

    Was not impressed by K. Pettway RB Auburn, or Andrew Brown DE Virginia

    Lots of good games today, with 2 premier matchup.

    Clemson @ Louisville is a juggernaut ACC matchup. Jackson and the Cardinals vs the stacked Clemson D and skill players

    Tennessee @ Florida, unfortunately the Florida suspensions continue to really hurt them. A lot of big time prospects on both teams still.

    Watching UCLA @ Memphis now, curious to see how a West coast team plays on the road at 12 Eastern/9 Pacific. Memphis is a very good small school who puts out NFL talent every year.

    Of course I'll watch my Syracuse Orange play Central Michigan as well.
