re: I can finally say I like SI's Mock Draft for a minute...

Jones is too injury proned

Jones has received very good news on that front in the form of a new medical report recently sent to NFL teams. Dan Pompei of the National Football Post reported Sunday that leading orthopedist Craig Brigham concluded that Jones never had a significant spinal-cord contusion. Brigham's findings refute findings by USC doctors who diagnosed Jones with spinal stenosis in 2009. USC wouldn't medically clear Jones, leading to the linebacker's decision to transfer. Brigham believes Jones had a very mild incident of spinal-cord concussion or a stinger. Either way, the doctor believes the situation has long since been resolved.

Would you rather Mingo/other defensie player, or O-lineman?

The idea of taking an O-lineman in first round bums me out for some reason, but what do I know, just a homer second guessing from the arm chair chugging beer.

LT won't be there, I'd then go Mingo, then Cooper then maybe dropping back if they are all gone. I think Jones could be had maybe a few picks later among a whole bunch of "other guys" at this point.

All fans of teams that pick an offensive lineman in the first round are a little "bummed out". It's not a position that people get excited over.

In our case it's worse because we have needs at positions that people get very excited over.

you got your facts mixed up.

He got injured in 2009 and was diagnosed w/ Spinal Stenosis and doctors wouldn't let him play rest of the year.

In spring 2010 doctors still wouldn't let him play so he transferred to UGA in fall 2010 and had to sit out due to transfer rules.

Hasn't been injured since his stinger against Oregon in 2009.

DO WANT!

not really, he wasn't cleared to play at usc so had to transfer bc of medical and transferred. It was all in all probably a best case scenario anyways to sit that year out with the neck.

But her didn't redshirt bc of medical. He transferred b/c USC doctors were dumb and had to sit out b/c of transfer rules, not for medical reasons.

I know. I don't understand why we just don't draft players that are guaranteed to be studs and come with no risks.

Doctors for usc were incredibly dumb
