    LOL!!! Ha Haaaaa! :laugh:


    And, now we have so few true needs, it probably makes more sense to trade some picks away than spend them all on guys who won't make it on the team anway. Should be an interesting draft for Spielman and Studwell and Co.

    A topic that keeps coming up on the radio is how valuable draft picks will be now under the 3 day draft.

    Consensus feeling is that teams will have more time to revisit thier picks, revisit other teams picks, revisit who's left, etc etc etc.

    As you said, it is gonna be fun to watch even though I am not sure I really like the whole weekday drafting idea.

    Re:Troup (DT) to visit Vikings (Possible 3rd rnd)

    I'm not a big fan of the new schedule just cuz it doesn't fit my schedule. I have a beer festival (Microbreweries For the Environment) on Friday night that is about 3 hours away from where I live, so I will likely be out of town for the entire thing since I was hoping to bring our brew staff down early for some brewery tours/education etc

    Maybe, I'll DVR the first 2 days so I can zip through them later...

    But, I can see where having that extra time between round 1 and 2, and between 3 and 4 is going to open up some trade doors since the GMs can wheel and deal all night long. Maybe we'll set another record for trades!?

    Troup Set To Visit

    Damn I like this guy. My guess is they better not wait until the 3rd to try and land him especially if the run on DT's goes the way most think it will in the first round.

    Analysis
    Pass rush: Bull rusher who often pushes his man (or a double-team when fresh) to collapse the pocket using leverage. Able to rip off blocks, punch and swim over the top, or even get under the arm of guards to pressure the quarterback if he hangs onto the ball too long. Limited burst; will provide some heat but not many sacks. Sits on many obvious passing situations.

    Run defense: Stands his ground against single and double blocks using his girth and strength, although he lacks the quickness to split the double. Can be violent with hands to free himself. Able to sift through trash inside to get to ballcarrier. Moves laterally while engaged to stay in the play. Needs improvement avoiding and recovering from cut blocks.

    Explosion: Quick and powerful off the snap, penetrating easily against man-up blocks. Good balance after initial contact, keeping pads low and moving forward. Loses steam coming off the ball throughout the game.

    Strength: Very strong player; prime nose tackle candidate. Uses a low center of gravity and thick upper body to gain leverage. Able to stack his man and disengage to chase the quarterback or wrap up ballcarriers.

    Tackling: Has length and upper-body strength to bring down most any player in his immediate area. Willing to chase down players but lacks burst to track them down from behind without help or consistently make tackles outside the box. Doesn't change directions easily, and can be eluded in space. Must keep his feet moving instead of relying on his strength to make arm tackles.

    Intangibles: Hard-working, unselfish leader with a quiet sensibility. Consistently gives good effort inside whether rushing the passer or stopping the run. No major character issues. Worked off 30 pound of weight during his career to gain stamina, although he still carries extra around his midsection.

    No way in hell Troup is second round talent. It would be a reach.
