Did Mallett do more to hurt himself by storming off during his interview, or to help himself by throwing well?

Do you buy the talk that Carolina will just go QB when all is said and done?


..there's like 1,000 questions I want to ask. Can you guys do a 3 hour show since there's so much to talk about? :D

Out of the all the 34 OLBs projected to go in the first two rounds (ish)
(Houston, Reed, Kerrigan, Quinn, A.Smith.... others?)
Any of them solidify that they should solely play in an even front and avoid playing in space?

Which first round/ fringe first round offensive linemen moved themselves up based on the week they had at the combine?

Scott/Shane

What are your thoughts on PP coming in at 219 & not 207 like he expected & was he trying to get down to 207 so he would not be in talks of moving over to FS?

Allen Bailey looked incredibly athletic in the positional drills. He was asked to do linebacker drills at the end and looked surprisingly good in his drops. He played LB as a freshman at Miami but was a LB his whole life prior to arriving at The U. The fact that they got him to do the LB drills leads me to believe that there's a possibility that some NFL teams are possibly considering him as a 3-4 OLB. I think in general people are too quick to want to change a guys position and force him to do something brand new but seeing him do the LB drops had me thinking...

For a player with terrific athleticism but who also lacks a true position, is there a chance (if he dropped back down to 270-275) that he could be getting some looks are a possible LOLB in a Parcell's style 3-4 defense?

Why is it QBs did not lift this year?

Orlando Franklin was somewhat stiff in the positional drills will this make him drop on teams draft boards? What is your assessment of his overall performance? What tackles really moved up the boards?

Scott/Shane, is Brandon Harris moving up or down your draft boards? He checked in at a very small 5'9 and a half, but ran well and looked very impressive in drills. Is he still in play to be the #3 corner off the board?

Can you ask Acho and Little did the Falcons interview them or what teams talk to them.

Thanks Scott

you bring up a lot of good points and there does come a point in the draft when Allen Bailey could be a steal. He's kinda stiff and not a natural football player but certainly a unique athlete that will go higher than he maybe should. If watched this player at Senior Bowl wouldn't think he was a late 1st/early 2nd. He played like a 4th rounder... BUt at combine he's a top 10 athlete.
