    Different position but I know you've been in on Myers from OSU. If you have time this afternoon, take a look at Trey Smith from Tennessee against a top flight defensive front today in Georgia.

    Again, do I need to reference y’all to Etienne? Dudes the next Barry Sanders. I’d consider trading back slightly and taking him top 10. He’s that good.

    Didn't get to watch him. As long as his blood clot issue is behind him, I'd have no problem if we got him. The interior needs to be upgraded.

    Smith has come a long way technique wise. Hes extremely explosive w his hands & through his hips... would not surprise to see him go Late RD 1.

    Have you watched Wyatt Davis? I've seen a few mocks having him go on day 1. BTW, looks like you were right to be skeptical about Thomas. Giants fans aren't thrilled with him so far.

    I havent seen any of Wyatt but ill take a look when i have a chance. Smith i know as hes been a prospect for a few yrs now.In actuality there are a few not just good but downright
    special OL in this 2021 class.

    Sewell
    Humphrie
    Smith
    Leatherwood
    Davis

    Thomas actually landed w the perfect team for his skillset & think when its all said & done he’ll be a very solid OT for 10 yrs.But i watched his tape starting his Freshman yr as a possibility for the Jets & i knew he was not the greatest mirroring in longer pass sets & lacked some blocking coordination. We’re seeing that now

    He's also a massive man with a wide frame. The type of guy that even if you 'beat' will still have a chance at blocking you from that guard spot because he's got such a big frame to go around. Like those really tall 6'5"+ NHL goalies.

    Tennessee in general got beat up in the run game by the Dogs though.

    Back to the thread topic, Journey Brown from Penn State could be a nice day 2 or day 3 pickup.
