Thought this was a good place to put this stuff.

Eric Stokes CB Georgia. 61 and has excellent speed

#Georgia CB Eric Stokes just ran a 4.25 (Unofficially)
If accurate it would be the 3rd fastest 40 yd dash time ever💨

That certainly changes things
Yeah.

Gotta agree with Crow here. He's probably a guard now. Ouch.

Right now Leatherwood looks a very enticing prospect too tbh. Pro day results are decent and he's played LT for years.

Leatherwood doesn't operate well in space. Most scouts think he'll end up a guard in the NFL.

He's not the kind of LT Andy Reid usually looks for.

So here’s my question regarding Forsythe.

If he’s good at pass blocking and meh at run blocking.....what’s the issue? Draft him to play LT and work on making his run blocking better.

If they think Jenkins can play LT....then I’m good with it.

Folks also said Niang would play guard before he opted out last season but now that ain't happening. Bottom line is some tackles come in with percieved "weaknesses" which don't transpire when they get into the flow of the nfl. Schwartz's pro day was a mess...as was Orlando Brown's so I'm not ruling Leatherwood out because of the notion of a few scouts.

My worry is NFL players are going to blow by him because his footwork is atrocious. He can't just be some mammoth that gets by on standing there and making guys go around him, because they will in the NFL. He lunges alot when he starts losing to speed rushers that can bend the arc. I'd say there is legit concern.

Yeah Jenkins is probably gone before we can get to him considering how disappointing some of these other guys are. He’s probably the 4th OT on the board with some teams viewing him as the 3rd.

33.5 arms isn’t a deal breaker for a lot of teams IMO

You know who Leatherwood reminds me of?

Orlando Brown Jr.

that wasn't about weaknesses with Niang, it was about getting your best 5 on the field, and a healthy Fisher and Schwartz weren't going to be beaten out by a rookie.

this is just a thought, but are less than 34" arms the issue or is wingspan more the number that would matter. It seems to me that an inch shorter arms aren't a huge deal, but the wingspan would be more important.

I mean, I get that you don't want the defender all up in your chest, but if your shoulders are wider, but your arms are a half inch shorter, you still have the same wingspan and would theoretically have a stronger base.

Just a thought.

Scouts didn't say Niang would play guard, Veach did. And he said "to start out" primarily because at the time, we had Fish and Mitch. Niang is a prototype tackle, both in terms of measurables as well as technique.

Leatherwood is not. And it isn't about his pro day, it's about his film. He's got lower body issues, poor center, and doesn't move well. He's going to get abused on the edge by NFL speed rushers. He's not an NFL left tackle, especially not in an Andy Reid offense.
