BowlenBall must read the Color Purple before making another draft selection.

Probably around the right time for Lavar Edwards. I like him more as a 43 Power End, but in a one gap 34 scheme, he could have a role. He never lived up to expectations at LSU, which means there is some untapped potential still.


Really like the Buchanon selection. He was #6 on my top 10 remaining. Tons of upside and potential here. I think he could do any scheme, but might be best in the 34.


As for OG Gilbert Godfrey, not a fan of the draft value, but then, I know nothing about him, which is why I'm not a fan of the draft value.

Don't know Garrett Gilkey? Height: 6-5. Weight: 314. Arm: 31 3/4. Hand: 10 3/8.
40 Time: 5.33.
Projected Round (2013): 4-6.

One moment, Garrett Gilkey was standing on his big stage. The next moment, he was being plowed under it.

There was a small crater in the turf where the 314-pound Gilkey tried to dig in his cleats and stop the charge of John Jenkins, a 359-pound defensive tackle from the University of Georgia. Gilkey is an offensive lineman from Chadron State, an outpost in northwest Nebraska, and NFL scouts were gathered around to see if the player from a small Division II school could block a player from a Goliath of college football, a school from the mighty Southeastern Conference.

Jenkins thrust his powerful claws straight into Gilkey's chest and it was an instant mismatch. Big beat little, for the moment.

It was a one-on-one drill at a practice for the Senior Bowl, a college football all-star game, which is the next step in the 2013 NFL draft process. Gilkey was shoved back by Jenkins and left standing on a white towel, which was the imaginary quarterback Gilkey was supposed to protect. This would have been a sack in a real game, the quarterback in a heap at the feet of Jenkins, and Gilkey humiliated.

Gilkey, a small-college nobody, did not pick up that white towel and start waving it as a flag of surrender.

He wasn't going to be defined by one stinking play.

The next snap in the one-on-one drill with Jenkins, Gilkey quick-setted Jenkins, which means he hit him first. If the big guy from Georgia was going to bull rush Gilkey in a drill with a helmet and no pads where coaches want to see players work with their hands, not power, Gilkey would counter with his own shifty move. He didn't take a step back to pass protect, he attacked Jenkins with a block.

"Punched him right in the face mask," said Gilkey, whose long blond hair flowed out of the back of his helmet. Then he smiled.

"I'm small school, he's big school. There might have been a few moments of awe because of the stage we're on here, being here in front of a lot of scouts, but after that first hit, it's just football. You have to show something here, some competitiveness. You don't let people intimidate you because you are from a small school."

There are two scouting services for NFL teams, Blesto and National Football Scouting, who scour the outposts, those small schools, and file reports for 28 NFL teams (four teams do not subscribe to the services). NFL teams have their own scouts who endure plenty of windshield time driving to small schools spread around the country to get a peek at a player. When word of a 314-pound lineman with quick feet spread, NFL teams flocked to Chadron, Nebraska, to see Gilkey. Savage said NFL scouts will try to stay mum on a prospect from a small school to keep teams off the scent.

"I sent a questionnaire out with Gilkey's name on it, along with some other names, and asked whether these players should be invited and all the scouts said yes, yes, yes to the others and no to Gilkey," said Savage, a former scout and general manager. "I knew something was up when they all said no. They were trying to sit on him. I got some tape, looked at him, and invited him."

There are some things that have nothing to do with skill that NFL scouts look for in a prospect, be they from big schools or little schools.

Gilkey had a solid Senior bowl after his initial run-in with Jenkins.

Tampa Bay has made their final selection of the 2013 OM Draft.

Players selected:

1. Xavier Rhodes- CB
2. Eric Reid- S
3. Jamie Collins- OLB
3. Chris Faulk- OT
5. Knile Davis- RB

Made a trade back into the 3rd, but missed out on the guys I wanted, Terron Armstead or Brandon Williams. Collins wasn't a bad backup plan though.

Playing a hunch on my last pick with Knile Davis. Given his injury history, he could be considered a racch in the 5th. Watch the 2010 film on him and tell me that he couldn't possibly be a steal.

Overall, filled many of the team needs, except maybe a pass catching TE.

Not so much a knock on the players, but this draft deserves an F for the trade you completed.

I'm flying down to New Orleans tomorrow morning for a 4 day bachelor party.

My co-GM phibacka31 and I will text to stay in communication about any upcoming picks.

Going to be fun....3 days in New Orleans and then heading down to Venice to go deep sea fishing for a day.

I'm hoping to hook into a monster sized yellowfin tuna.

be careful with the tuna in New Orleans. I hear one catch will stay with you the rest of your life.

Hehe, gotta love the little/big guy story with Gilkey. Maybe you found something there. I know nothing about him. The OL position is so picked over in this draft though, that I suppose if you needed one, now was the time. I probably would have tried to wait on him, I'm not sure anyone else actually had him on the radar this soon. But we'll see. Maybe he'll be a 3rd round pick and you'll look like a genius.



Tampa Bay

I think this is the right range for Knile Davis. There's massive upside here. It's a boom or bust selection, but you're right, that 2010 tape was impressive. Maurice Clarrett got selected in the 3rd Round off tape from a year or two earlier. No reason Davis can't make the 5th here. He was someone I would have considered moving up for in the 6th.

Overall the draft haul was decent. Rhodes looks good. Reid in the second was solid. Collins' draft value was fine, but not sure about his fit in a 43. Faulk I thought was a reach as more of a 4th or 5th round guy, but maybe the way the draft went dictated that. He does have some upside. And I think Davis is fine here. I see a decent draft with quality players.



Jarvis Jones

He and Damontre really **** the bed with these workouts. There is still hope as Terrell Suggs did the same thing and became a great pro. I think the top half of the 1st Round is highly unlikely for both now though.

Have fun on your trip. Deep Sea fishing is my all time favorite love in this world. Trolling for billfish or tuna is pretty fun, I really prefer traditional bottom fishing for grouper/snapper. I could do that every day of my life.

Thanks....I've fished all over the United States and Canada on some incredible lakes and rivers and have done numerous fly-in trips in some super remote places, but I've yet to go deep sea fishing, so I'm really looking forward to it.

Missed the last few selections, comments on those as follows:


Love the Josh Evans selection. I had him as my #4 top remaining guy and the best Safety left on the board. I think he's a 4th round guy in the real draft, so this was great value. He should be able to play any style of Safety, with a lean towards Free.


I thought Boyce was pretty solid. I think this is the earlier part of his draft range, but he's got some nice physical traits to work with. He was probably the top WR left after King went.


Really like the Klein selection. I prefer him over Nico Johnson whom went a little earlier. Klein was my 7th best prospect remaining when I made my little list awhile ago. I have him in the Mid-4th - 5th round range. This was rock solid value. I probably prefer him in a 34 a little bit more, but he can play inside in any defense.


Those were three strong and quickly done selections. The last two nights, people go nuts around midnight with the picks.
