God, I would have been right down the road 20 years ago. Used to live on Lawrence Road, but now I live in the ice box that is Albany, NY. I am going to find a copy and watch. Better be worth my time. LOL. Dude I was back for my 25 year reunion not so long ago. I can't believe how much that area has changed. Growing up, there were 2,000 in Kemah. No lie.
Oddly enough, I'm not a huge fan of mocks. I generally prefer to just focus on team needs and individual prospects by position. With the new CBA, first round movement is much more likely as a result of the rookie pay scale and I think mocks in general will prove to be highly inaccurate. Now, I'm not against saying "X team is going to target X position"...that's really the best way to predict the draft with any reasonable measure of success.
Yes I did, I am high on him. He was all everything coming out of high school. His shoulder and ankle set him back his first couple years in college but has since played well. Tall fast and a good athlete.
Hey lil bush, sorry it took me so long to get back to you, I didn't realize you messaged me. I didn't see too much of Gilbert in the combine (I watched almost all of it on NFLN) but I have read some good things. His athleticism was noted in a couple of articles I saw which was no suprise. Do you think we look for another LDE type now that we have Antonio Smith? I think the draft is a little more stacked at RDE and I think we look for more of a situational pass rusher since Antonio can move inside on passing downs. I am moving Sidbury up on my list for that reason. I still wouldn't pass on Gilbert if he was there in the 3rd though. Take it easy man.
