Our coaches get the best out of their draft picks.
regarding Elam, please post a link with reports that say he's 5'8''. i didn't say that he was gonna be as good as reed or the other players i posted. i'm basically arguing against your logic that because he was "short" by your standard, he can't play the position, which is pretty ignorant considering the top players that have played safety under 6 feet.
you may be glad that i'm not drafting, which is a childish statement considering that i don't have a job with the team, but i know my college football, which according to your posts, you know almost nothing about.
I like how you are just using the part of what I said that support your side or your opinion and ignore the rest. now that is childish. I clearly said I would draft him at the end of the 4th round. That would be a 4th round comp pick. I never said I do not know anything about collage football. All I said is that I have never seen Lattimore play. So now your making stuff up. want to talk about Childish. Sorry I have not watched every football game or seen every football player that is coming out in this years draft. you can disagree with me all you want it does not hurt my feeling. That is why we are on this bord.
I really thought Elam was 5'8" sorry I made a mistake. they where talking about how short he was on the path to the draft. they said he was a good play but short. they said he was 5'8" that is where i got it from. 5'10" is fine to play FS. you may know football but you do not know me, so maybe you should think about that before you start calling people childish and ignorant, all your doing is making your self look bad.
using what you said to support my side? a page ago, you said you thought it was a bad idea to draft an injured running back like Lattimore, even if it was in the 4th round. a few of us argued with that logic and you explained that you never saw him play. i was stating FACT, not making stuff up.
LOL at you calling me "childish." when i try to make a point, at least i have a valid reasoning behind it. you'd rather just say that you're glad I'm not drafting for this team because I'd use a 4th rounder on a running back and draft one of the top safeties.
so to summarize our whole exchange, you say "NO" to drafting Marcus Lattimore, even in the 4th. I say "YES," and you agree after admitting never seeing him play. you say "NO" to drafting Elam because he's 5'8'' without listing a legitimate source. I argue and say "YES" and note that he officially measured at 5'10'' at the combine and that other great safeties played at that height, which should be enough of a reason that his height isn't a concern. you take it as if i'm saying he's the next Ed Reed lol. at least you admitted making the mistake.
Then you say I'm making myself look bad because I called your post ignorant (Elam not being able to play the position because he's "short") and childish (you saying that I believe Elam would be the next Reed). ok lol
if anything, i do apologize for sounding like a dick. it was never my intention. i made an argument, you responded with a smartass remark about me not drafting for this team and i snapped.
