Well, at least it isn't 4 games.  And who knows, maybe it'll drop after the PA appeals.

 Pitt RB LeVeon Bell suspended 3 games, fined additional game check for violating substance abuse policy, per league sources. He is appealing


Bullshit.  Predict we get New England week one and Baltimore week two at the bare minimum.

DL Randy Gregory, Nebraska.  6'5", 235#.  NFLDS: top-15.  Mayock's #2 edge rusher.  Best in class at combine at BJ

While being good in the BJ department is a good skill to have, I'm just not sure how it would help an NFL team.  Roll Eyes

TE Cameron Clear, Texas A&M.  6'6", 252#.  NFLDS: R5.  Mayock's #3 TE.  Best in show at combine among TEs in 40 (4.80), 20-yard shuttle (4.32), and 60-yard shuttle (11.81).  NFL.com sez:

"SOURCES TELL US "Personally, I don't really think much of his chances to make it as a tight end because he's too far behind where he needs to be. I did think he looked better by the end of the year so maybe I'm wrong." -- NFC North scout

NFL COMPARISON Joel Dreessen

BOTTOM LINE A newly converted tight end who was a short-yardage specialist and red-zone brute for the Sooners as a quarterback. Bell was looked over by scouting community during the regular season, but he has flashed sure hands and shown improvement as a blocker and could have an NFL future if a team is willing to be patient with him."

Finny sez:  Seem to remember reading somewhere that Colbert picks tended to rate well in agilities, so that bodes well for Clear.  Good year to bring another developmental TE into the fold:  Miller is still productive but the writing is on the wall; Spaeth is Spaeth;  Branchflower could break out, but you'd like to bring in someone to push as that poor man's Gronkowski.  Good R5 value, or later.

WR DeVante Parker, Louisville*. 6'3", 209#.  NFLDS:  top-15.  Mayock's #3 WR.  4.45 40.

NFL.com sez:

"NFL COMPARISON Hakeem Nicks

BOTTOM LINE Parker does his best work when the ball is in the air. He uses his height and wingspan to consistently snatch anything that comes his way. Parker isn't going to overpower cornerbacks and he will have more contested catches than most explosive wideouts. He has consistently posted eye-popping yards-per-catch numbers during his time at Louisville and showed of solid athleticism at the combine. Parker has the potential to be a legitimate lead receiver for a West Coast offense."

Finny sez:  Hard to see the Steelers going WR in R1, but if Parker was there?  Put it this way, Steelers were very interested in Odell Beckham last year, and fans would have shit a cow if we'd drafted him.  But he was a playmaker, so...  I've seen comparisons from Nicks to AJ Greene to Deandre Hopkins.  A WR corps of AB, Parker, Bryant, Wheaton and whoever else would be just sick.  Ben would have 7000 yards passing.  Not gonna happen though.

LB Shane Ray, Missouri. 6'3", 245#.  NFLDS: top-15.  Mayock's #5 edge rusher.  Triangle numbers:  64.  NFL.com sez:

"SOURCES TELL US "He's not like other guys from Missouri that we've seen. He's got serious speed to get over the top of tackles and those other ends didn't have it. You just wish he was a little longer." -- NFC outside linebackers coach

NFL COMPARISON Chris Clemons

BOTTOM LINE It's hard to find many play weaknesses for Ray, but his lack of overall length is one area that some teams have concerns about. He pursues the quarterback and the ball like it's his last snap. An alpha male packaged in an explosive frame, Ray has the traits and skills to be a dominant pass rusher and potential Pro Bowler. He also has the athleticism and strength to play in any defensive front."

Finny sez:  Less enamored of Ray than most.  Nice speed, but thin lower body, no sand in the pants to anchor against the run.  Jarvis was also a productive SEC prospect, right?  I want a bigger pop from my OLB.

LB Kyle Emanuel, North Dakota State. 6'3", 255#.  NFLDS:  R6.  Combine best in show with 27 reps at 225# among LB.  NFL.com sez:

"BOTTOM LINE Small-school prospects often come with inflated statistics, but Emanuel's tape shows a combination of motor and skill that should be respected inside NFL buildings once he's studied closely. Emanuel has the leverage and hips to get under tackles and turn the corner, but his explosion off the snap will be tested. With his foot quickness and surprising lateral agility, there might be defensive coordinators willing to give him a shot as a 4-3 SAM linebacker."

Finny sez:  We need a top prospect at OLB in R1-2 IMO, but we could add a second guy later, and Charlie Hustle here is a prime example.  Keep an eye on this kid from R5 on.

DL Randy Gregory, Nebraska.  6'5", 235#.  NFLDS: top-15.  Mayock's #2 edge rusher.  Best in class at combine at BJ (125").  NFL.com sez:

"SOURCES TELL US "He's super raw, but those physical tools are through the roof. That's why you pay coaches." -- NFC scouting director

NFL COMPARISON Barkevious Mingo

BOTTOM LINE A 3-4 outside linebacker with the length, toughness and closing burst to immediately help a run defense. Gregory could stand to add more weight to his frame and needs plenty of technique work and a patient coach for his pass-rush skill to match his traits. Gregory's draft stock has been clouded with a positive drug test at the combine to go with failed tests for marijuana while at Nebraska. High-ceiling, low-floor prospect."

Finny sez:  Less concerned with the pot ding than frame and injuries.  Some knee issues, and could not keep weight on for the combine.  Too reedy for OLB for us.  Just not seeing the fit.

QB/WR Devin Garner, Michigan. 6'3", 218.  NFLDS: UDFA. 

Finny sez:  Unlike Denard Robinson, lacks speed.  Not sure of his fit in the NFL.  Not a QB.  Not a WR.  An athlete who lacks athletic skills.  Plus side:  high character. 

CB Darryl Roberts, Marshall. 5'11', 187#.  NFLDS:  UDFA. 

Finny sez:  hard to get much info on Roberts, looks like another speed/slot guy to add to the fold.  Not a shutdown.  Not jumping out at me.

RB Matt Jones, Florida.  6'2", 231#.  NFLDS: R5-6.  4.5-4.6.  NFL.com sez:

"SOURCES TELL US "Big ol' dude. We always reserve a place for chain movers on our depth chart, so he does some of the things that we like, even if he's limited." -- AFC area scout

NFL COMPARISON BenJarvus Green-Ellis

BOTTOM LINE Has very good athleticism for a big running back and is a physical pile-mover who is difficult to stop for negative yardage. Unfortunately, Jones lacks the instincts and vision to fully maximize his physical tools. Jones could become the physical member of a running-back-by-committee approach, with upside as a third-down option."

Finny sez:  Could be a solid platoon type guy, late value.  Size of Bell, but not the ceiling.  Don't see him processing as intuitively as Bell.

WR Sammy Coates, Auburn
OLB Eli Harold, Virginia
CB Senquez Golson, Ole Miss
TE C.J. Uzomah, Auburn
DE Nate Orchard, Utah

Be glad you've only been listening on the radio.  Watching Scuderi and Lovejoy try to play top 4 minutes is brutal.  I was against that trade from the beginning, but it's proven worse than I thought.  They just don't have the mobility in their own end, anywhere else on the ice, and add nothing offensively.

I do think injuries played a huge role in this season.  Losing Letang, Mattaa, Erhoff, for significant time, when they are the defenseman that always get the play moving forward.  Dupuis, Hornquist, Geno, Sid, have all missed time.  BUT, at some point you have to man up.  They've consistently lost multiple goal leads down the stretch, something that you just can't do in the NHL, I don't care who is out of the lineup.

That said, I want them in the playoffs for the simple fact that IF they get everyone back it would not shock me if they made a little run. Hell, we've seen Philly and LA sneak in the past few years and make it to the finals.
