[quote]All true, but the NFL guys aren't going to watch tape of every LSU game for every player. They go largely on numbers and "check boxes"
Do you really think that the NFL talent evaluators use just "numbers and check boxes" when they are drafting.
You really think they don't wa...

Then you don't watch many games. First off, the one to D Byrd wasn't in the red zone. Some notable ones that WERE red zone fades that occurred since the one you mentioned were:

My take on it is, if Glen Davis is still pulling a check in the NBA, there is no reason JOB can't make a living there too. JOB compares much more favorably to Big Baby than he does any other recent pro players from LSU....

I think CFB and the NFL are in a transition period brought on by the new CBA. With the new pay scales in place, it has given CFB players more to think about when it comes to their future careers and when is the best time to end their CFB careers.
One thing that HASN'T changed is the number of ope...

Our fans are really struggling to gain any perspective right now. Let's look at a few facts:
1. Nick Saban is the BEST coach in CFB right now, no one disputes that fact right?
2. Nick Saban is the best recruiting HC in CFB right now, if he's not THE best he is on a very short list.

Last I heard, this was the official story line from the coaches. Because of depth issues at DE he spent the entire spring and most of fall practice working at DE.

The guy has been a MONSTER at LT all year, and yet you are hearing little to nothing nationally about him.
Hard to believe he is flying so low under the radar to TAMU's and Bama's LT's, because to my eyes there certainly doesn't seem to be much difference in talent or performance wise!...
