    Damn I should've known better.

    Been watching a lot of Houston defense video lately for Emeke Egbule and Ed Oliver and been stunned by Isaiah Johnson's prowess...and so I came to see what Slimm thinks of him. Third behind Baker and Ya-Sin.

    That sounds...incredibly right.

    sooooo that Houston defense has some solid players apparently, where do you think Egbule will go, round wise??

    He probably goes late based on where I keep seeing him rated.

    Is he just a Phillip Wheeler? Or is he more of a Dont'a Hightower?

    That is so funny, first player that came to mind was Phillip Wheeler.

    Feels like everyone (excluding present company) forgot about Iman Marshall. His 4.53 is a win at 207 lbs. He never took that next step after a strong start to his career at USC, but I think he's a good bet on late Day 3, where he seems likely to go.

    Also curious to see what people do with Kris Boyd. Has the tools to be a versatile DB, and is somewhat similar in profile to Gardner-Johnson except he was asked to cover on the perimeter more, where he did have some struggles. I'd like to see him inside or in a D that plays more zone and off coverage.

    I always felt like Marshall needed to move to safety. He’s just a little bit too stiff for corner.

    Boyd has the talent to be a pro bowl cornerback. But his technique has always been a mess.

    Slimm we talked about this a long time ago but it's worth noting that Chris Westry went ahead and had the sort of pro day measurements I always thought he would.

    He was 6044 and 199 lbs with 34" arms and a 6'10" wing span, ran a 4.31 with a 38" vertical, 10'1" broad jump. One team even clocked him at 4.27 in the forty.

    That position is very much a measurement-oriented position. He's going to get a shot.

    Yeah those are exceptional numbers. Spectacular. Just goes the other way in a hurry when you turn on the tape. Does for me.
