No doubt. How about we slot him in at 50, where I do think the Bucs may be targeting him? I do think a solid, all-around DE who can stop the run to play opposite Spence could be at the top of the wish list. Barnett at 19 is what the team is really hoping for maybe. When they don't get him, I do think they are eyeing Willis.

I've considered it. If you think he is gone by pick fifty you have to decide how bad you want him.

That comment implies you are going to move him up your board to select him. If he's top of our board, take him. If he's top of our board @ 19, I question our board (as a KSU fan). He is high character, but I don't consider him a "safe" prospect. Not in the first damn round.

Actually I thought he played safe disciplined football, do you think he could be told go get him on 3rd down?

He did what he was assigned to do. I'm sure that is one of the reasons coach Snyder raves about him. I have little doubt he will work hard and continue to improve. He checks all those boxes, but I don't think he's a turn it loose kind of pass rusher. I don't think he has the bend or explosion. He tested much better than I expected from watching him play. He also weighed less. I think he dropped 10+ pounds to be more attractive to 3-4 teams. After watching his last game I hoped we'd look at him in the 3rd. He always played hard and usually very well, but I never remember him being dominant in any televised (all our decent games are) matchup. He never struck me as first round NFL talent, but a guy I definitely thought could go on to a healthy pro career.

My bold prediction is we would be wise to get this guy - Ahkello Witherspoon!

So whoever is repping Joe Mixon is doing a great job this week and earning their commission. A few days ago a story from when he was in HS was debunked, and now Mixon and the girl he punched in the infamous video have released a joint statement

Yup. They were able to talk privately(lawyers were probably waiting outside the door) and settle the civil case without a prolonged hassle. Hopefully, he'll be able to put this behind him when we draft him next week :mrgreen:

Has there ever been a prospect with this big of a red flag to have this type of outcome? I'm not talking about Jameis' allegations but a situation where we knew they were guilty. Quite possible that he will have his name called Thursday night.

I think Green Bay might take him in the 1st.

Somebody is brigade-ing Mixon's google search results. I wanted to go over some of his highlights, which used to dominate the first page of a video search on google. Now it's all videos of him punching that girl and videos from 2014 about how his draft stock will drop after the incident.

Jameis' stuff was NOTHING compared to Mixon and Cook.

I hope we avoid these 2 like the plague.
