That is very hard to read.
Seemed like Baalke likes younger players like Davis and Smith.
Hey OTC what you think about jayron hosley from va tech? Is he more of a second rounder?

solid playmaking corner

he will be an int machine but size and strength islimited will suffer against bigger physical WRs

but he is a playmaker

Seems more like a Nickel CB to me. Probably more of a late 2nd-3rd right now. Either way, I don't think he's really a fit for us. We need size and/or speed (with adequate size) at CB.

I still feel like Culliver is a waste at CB and should be our starting safety if Goldson walks. Culliver's speed, size, and range make him an excellent safety. But at CB his problem is getting his head turned. He has the physical tools and coverage ability down, but his problems playing/looking for the the ball when he has back turned running with the receiver is going to lead to a lot of PI penalties and missed interceptions that could change games.

He was a tremendous safety because his field of vision was changed and he could see much more. With the play in front of him Culliver is more dangerous.

If they intend to keep him at CB, I hope they fix his tendency to play the receiver instead of the ball. The only reason he isn't starting over Brown right now is because of the issues just stated.

NFL | Andrew Luck intends to apply for NFL DraftTue, 06 Dec 2011 06:18:25 -0800

Stanford QB Andrew Luck said late Monday, Dec. 5, that he intends to apply for entry into the 2012 NFL Draft. When asked about his plans for next year, Luck replied, "I think I'm going to hopefully play professional football if a team will have me." He then said he was "absolutely" prepared to go to the NFL after this season.

Sanu isn't saying his decision til after the bowl game right? reports say he'll return for his senior year

How long will Griffin take to announce his decision?
Why did Rb Robert Turbin leave early? Seems like a bad decision. Last year he missed due to an injury, and I think proving he can be health with another year would be pretty important.

I'd be surprised if he went earlier then the 5th round.

Extremely weak senior RB class. No senior currently carries anything higher than a third round value.
Another update done.
