I think HTTV has been coming out since 2010.

There's still Joe Bolden and Royce Jenkins-Stone and A.J. Williams...

Todd Howard worked with him a little bit.
|15 hours 19 min ago||Hmmm... No, I think he's a||
No, I think he's a better corner prospect. Because he tackles like Cullen Christian did coming out of high school, and that's not a compliment. Christian eventually ended up playing some safety, but he wasn't very good at that, either.
I think St-Juste's best shot is to get stronger and work on his technique to just be a handsy, lanky corner. He doesn't have great speed or ball skills or hips. He's not much of a hitter.
Also, his film sucks. Not necessarily his play, but just the people taking the video. It's like they handed a camera to a second grader who was just learning how to use electronics. And then leaving the second grader to do the editing, too.
I'm not giving up on St-Juste because I trust this coaching staff, but I think we could find more talented corners.

Yeah, Keandre Jones.

I think they're very similar, right down to the fact that their competition isn't anything special. I think Dillon is a little more patient than Smith at the same point in their careers.

That's interesting, since we just wrapped up a class with David Long, Khaleke Hudson, Lavert Hill, etc. To average 6'3", we're going to have to start reeling in some of those 6'6" and 6'7" safeties and corners...

The best part was the personalized Jim Harbaugh autograph.

He was recruited as a corner.

Or it was a fast track when he ran the 40. Or it was a slow track when he ran the 100. Lots of different things can factor in.
Regardless, watching his film, he doesn't have good acceleration. And I'm not the only one to think so. Track speed doesn't always equal football speed.
|20 hours 21 min ago||I believe it differs from||
I believe it differs from state to state. Some places have a limit of 19 years old by a certain date during their senior year. I've also heard of a limit of 19 years and 9 months. I'm not sure what the rule is in Connecticut.
|20 hours 26 min ago||Eh, the problem with Dillon||
Eh, the problem with Dillon being "lightning" is that he doesn't get to top speed quickly. He's pretty ponderous with his cuts and acceleration. His 4.56 time in the forty isn't bad, but I think that's more reflective of some solid top-end speed. Which is, after all, the main criticism of using 40 times to judge football players. It's not often that you run 40 yards in a straight line.

On a slightly related note, Neal's son signed with Purdue to play DT in this year's class (LINK).
|20 hours 33 min ago||I don't think that's true.||
I don't think that's true. Plenty of teams have fullbacks. There are 32 active fullbacks in the NFL right now. Teams do generally just carry one, though.
|20 hours 40 min ago||Did you watch Shallman this||
Did you watch Shallman this spring? He seems very disinterested in playing fullback.
|20 hours 41 min ago||I disagree. Michigan||
I disagree. Michigan fullbacks have generally redshirted, save for the Rodriguez years when he was pretty unconventional with his FB use.
|20 hours 44 min ago||You think Ramsey will be the||
You think Ramsey will be the backup FS? I think he'll be busy starting at corner. I doubt they try to use him at two positions as a rookie.
|20 hours 53 min ago||I don't think that's true. He||
I don't think that's true. He scored a 142+, and the highest since then (AFAIK) is Cam Akers with a 141+. I'm willing to be proven wrong, but here's the link to Akers's score.
|20 hours 59 min ago||Michigan has had a little too||
Michigan has had a little too much thunder lately. We got one good lightning season out of Fitzgerald Toussaint in 2011, and Carlos Brown did okay under Rodriguez. But I'm looking forward to getting a potential home run hitter on the field.
|21 hours 3 min ago||True, but he is older than||
True, but he is older than most of his classmates. He's going to be 19 years old by the time his senior season starts.

I like Ty Isaac, but Dillon is a tougher runner.
|23 hours 12 min ago||Yes.||

He couldn't do much. He's still recovering from his Achilles tear.

The Jaguars basically have three starting safeties on their roster. Jonathan Cyprien and Josh Evans have each been starting there for the past three seasons. They also signed Tashaun Gipson from the Browns, who started the past three seasons for Cleveland.
|1 day 11 hours ago||The Saints have two fullbacks||
The Saints have two fullbacks on their roster. One is a third-year guy named Austin Johnson from Tennessee who played in ten games last year and started one. He had 4 carries for 9 yards and a TD, plus 5 catches for 30 yards. The other guy is a second-year player from Kansas named Toben Opurum, who played in two games last year. Both players were linebackers in college, although Johnson played some fullback during his first couple seasons before moving full-time to defense.

Not exactly a no-name. He's a Florida transfer who was fairly highly regarded in the draft. Better athlete with a strong arm.

I had Henry as a 4th rounder to the Bears. Like you said, this is a deep DL class. I can't really argue with the DL that have been picked before him.
