So much salt. This dude is going to be the next, great, shutdown CB in the NFL to come out of LSU & likely a great ambassador to the university. You'll all be back around to STTD.

D. Clark will be a better pro than half that list.

If teams like him in meetings, he's got a chance to go late R1 or early R2

I’d prefer Treylon Burks over Chris Olave. Burks is bigger and stronger, like a Deebo Samuels type.

Did anyone see Hutchinson vs. UGA? That’s a #1 pick?

That's because Burrow is going to violate the Rams defense so bad on Sunday, the Bengals will be fined their 1st round draft pick.

saint tiger225 - You realize that Cincinnati's OLine is terrible and that Aaron Donald plays for the Rams. Smh Joe will be hard-pressed to violate anybody, but I hope he has a good game and stays alive.

It takes Georgia with 3 DL and a LB in the 1st round for Kirby to get over the hump.

Would suck for the Bengals if Linderbaum is off the board that early.

He will test out of this world . I’m saying 4.40 or less with a 38-42 inch vertical with the best three cone at his position. He will look fluid in the drills as well. Btw -this draft sucks

There is an OT last on the list. Subtle pick for the Bengals to win it all.

Stingley didn’t play that much after 2019.

Would Jameson Williams be able to practice in camp? That seems to be a big deal for wrs. Imagine if Chase’s preseason happened in the regular season. Could have derailed everything.

Saints aren’t drafting any of those guys. They’ll get some projected third rounder that no one has ever heard of

lol at Mcshay not having Stingley Jr. as first CB taken. Dude must be on drugs.

Maybe he thinks that the one before him is just as good and not as injury prone and doesn’t have a dad that will tell him to quit whenever it’s convenient.

After reading some of these comments some need to get a girlfriend or spend more time with family. With that said Him being #8 doesn't mean he will not get picked in the top 5 or top 30. But I think he is top 5 pick.

Simmons didn't give 2 shits about LSU. U can try & bash DS for a lot of stuff over the last 2 seasons, even tho he was clearly playing hurt/injured in ‘20 & ‘21 B4 he had 2 shut it down. Sting is from BR & him & his family are 100% LSU —> Cant come close to saying ANY of that about BS!!
