    I believe starting today player signed donít count towards comp picks anymore. Maybe date is wrong but thereís absolutely a cutoff day on those formulas and itís coming up. Read someone report that FA dominos will start to fall again after the draft for this reason.

    Ah come on man.. Youíre a bears fan, right? You should appreciate good physical football. I donít see it as launching into parsons face. The point of contact was on parsons shoulder. It woulda been a weak call if the ref threw a flag, this is football, not Girl Scouts. I just always hate seeing questionable penalties like that even if it favors my team, like just let them play physical football. Now if it was targeting (which it wasnít) or if it was an intentional helmet to helmet (which it wasnít) then I can see that.

    For some reason May 2nd sticks in my head as the day.

    A little side note but I hope they extend him before the year. I bet they could get somewhat of a discount if they do it now. I could see him having a very good year

    I just wanna see him do it in the NFL. One of his main strengths was YAC and I'm not sure he should attempt much of that against bigger, faster DBs. At 2:43 is a good example of what happens when 230 pounds meet 170 pounds in motion. That's his Eagles draft class mate JaCoby Stevens, by the way.

    I thought he took that hit just fine. He stayed in the game and caught a deep TD on stingley a few minutes later. Look at 1:50. Stevens illegally tries to knock Smith off his route and smith stayed the course and still caught the ball as stingley was tackling him. I think plays like this are a bigger indication of if he can play against physicality or not. I see a lot of plays like this where players try to get physical with smith and it doesnít faze him.

    Now I will say that although the SEC is a very physical conference, itís nothing compared to playing in the NFL. Whether he can do this against bigger, faster, and stronger players every single week remains to be seen but I donít see any reason on tape why he canít be successful.

    If thatís the case Richard Sherman SHOULD be on his way to Dallas. I still have doubts that they even make an attempt though.

    Yeah, he took the hit alright. That's my point -- not whether it knocked him out of the game. When a heavy object and a light object collide the light one takes on the brunt of the momentum. I wish we still had self-tackling Maclin so Smith could learn from him.

    Iíd argue that this probably applies to most wide receivers in the nfl, though yes devonta smith is one of the skinniest at the moment. But we have seen skinny wide receivers succeed before. Heís probably around the same size or maybe even a little bigger than desean jackson when he came out. I also donít see why he canít get up to around where hall of famer Marvin Harrison was as far as weight is concerned, heís not that far off right now. Itíll probably take a few seasons but I could see it. Isaac Bruce is another skinny hall of famer, so they are out there. Not saying devonta will be a HOFer, but rather just saying skinny WRs can succeed and have a good long career.



    Letís also not forget the GOAT. Randy moss was a twig in college.

    The messed up part is he did well against Stingley 2 years in a row and Stingley is no slouch.
    Like I said in the Eagles forum after year 2 hell ve best in the division and by end of year 3, he'll be top 5 in the NFL barring a huge injury of course.

    Yet Moss' weight was 194 lbs at the combine.

    If Smith were to bulk up to skinny Isaac Bruce's weight (188 lbs) that's a 10.5% increase in weight.

    If this affects his performance, I don't even want him to get bigger. I just want him to play smart and not get hurt.

    The issue I have with DSmiths size is how well will he handle being bumped off his line? Bama did a great job of putting him on the wide side of the field with single WR sets to give him as much space as possible. In the NFL there isnít as many wide sides, and thereís more traffic to navigate with LBers and Ss redirecting their routes.
