if the Saints would pass on home town once in a lifetime type of player in Leonard Fournette I would DIE!! Mark Ingram hasn't shown to be all that great. We will likely have a new young QB in a few years and a BEAST back would do him wonders. Hell he may help Brees last a little longer in that he won't have to pass 100 times a game. Delvin Breaux, PJ Williams, DeVante Harris, Ken Crawley, Damian Swann, and Kyle Wilson will be plenty enough depth at corner. The 2 UDFA corners have played good considering they are undrafted. I think PJ was gonna have a good year before the devastating concussion. We are missing Sheldon Rankins right now and our top 3 corners. This D isn't as bad as most think, but the devastating injuries to all our corners have killed us, which would happen to every team out there. Plus I'm scared of Bama corners BIG TIME!! They seem to bust or take forever to produce!!
Yeah the Patriots are just clamoring for an interior offensive lineman. After all they have Thuney and Mason as starters at guard with Jonathan Cooper and Ted Karras as back-ups and have a very good center in David Andrews. What the Patriots need is an offensive tackle because Sebastian Vollmer ain't getting any younger and hasn't really been fully healthy the last two seasons. If there's a great prospect at OT at the end of the first round the Patriots should take him. You're out of your tree if you think the Patriot's greatest need is an interior offensive lineman.
Yet again, I will follow Walt's lead for this draft order outside the fact that the Bears land the top pick over the 49ers or Browns, I have more faith in Cutler running into wins before I do with Kessler or Gabbert. Also, there are still some players not in the system such as the Illini DEs, Justin Evans and Malik Hooker at safety. Until they are in I will mock without them.
A disappointing 2009-10 season marked the end of the 13-year Al Skinner-era as he was fired from BC. Now Steve Donahue comes from Cornell to take the reins after leading the Big Red to a Sweet 16 appearance.
Donahue does have the good fortune of taking over a team that returns four starters including their top three scorers and rebounders. So why are they ranked so low? Their depth is a serious concern. When Donahue took over, he lost two players to transfer and several of the committed freshmen backed out on their decision to take their talents elsewhere.
Boston College was unable to replace those bodies in the short period Donahue had to find new recruits. Realistically, that leaves the Eagles as a team that can only go seven deep next season, maybe eight if one their freshman can acclimate themselves from the get-go. That will hold this team back and as a result they will likely be near the bottom of the ACC standings.
Player to Watch: Reggie Jackson, G
Jackson took a nice step during his sophomore season taking over as the team's top perimeter player and putting together solid all-around numbers of 12.9 points, 5.7 boards and 4.5 assists per game. Jackson can play either guard spot and should get even more touches now that Rakim Sanders has transferred out of the program. If he can improve on his 29.1 three-point percentage, Jackson might become one of the top scorers in the conference.
