    Came in here to read about Eric Smith, and I'm seeing even more Ben Braden talk.. he's still out there undrafted, hope we could get him still. We would have 3 solid OL additons

    Trust me. Teams know about him. If he's still out there, something rotten is in the state of Denmark.

    Funny, I was going to come talk about Braden too. I have Googled him daily since Saturday and have found nothing. This is quite the mystery.

    You'd think Miami would have been a heck of an opportunity for a good interior line prospect.

    Alex Kelley (C for Colorado) got a tryout with SF! I was good friends with his brother, and I remember Alex when he was about 7. His chances of making it are low, but I'm rooting for him. Super nice family.

    Some people don't really WANT football. Take two prospects I also liked, or at least WOULD have liked, in Jake Replogle and Johnny Caspers. They just...quit. They were good at football, could have had a go in the NFL, and just quit. I'm sensing that may be what's going on with Braden.

    The issue with Ben Braden is he's got a pretty bad back situation, medically speaking, according to Simon Clancy. Tall OLs with bad backs...it's a thing to watch for.

    Sucks. I don't like seeing him on the Jets regardless. Even if his career is short, he should be pretty good.
