Speed was not Grady's problem. He wasn't Carlos Brown fast, but he was a fast player. I ran track against him. I was very fast. He was faster.
Also of note, our league was a very strong track league, and Grady won the conference in the 100 and shot put. That is rare.
|12 hours 16 min ago||Christian High was not in||
Christian High was not in that league. They were still in the City League then.
|12 hours 18 min ago||I played against Grady. It||
I played against Grady. It wasn't exactly Dallas/area competition but that league was very solid. At that time, Lowell, Hudsonville and FHN were all very good programs. It wasn't his competition. He was just a unique athlete.

You have McCray leaving early but not Peppers? Interesting.
|19 hours 27 min ago||I wouldn't say they missed||
I wouldn't say they missed him a lot. They were basically the same team. With him they lost a head scratcher too and frankly got lucky it didn't cost them a playoff spot.
|20 hours 39 min ago||Agreed. I think anyone who||
Agreed. I think anyone who said that was purely speculating.
|21 hours 9 min ago||I didn't make a single||
I didn't make a single comment about their games. This thread is in regards to his combine numbers, and I'm making a comparison to a back of very similar size who we know is very good. I don't think Dillon will be Derrick Henry. But if his ceiling is 75% of Henry, that's still pretty good.
|22 hours 28 min ago||Oh, Akers is who I was||
Oh, Akers is who I was thinking of. I thought I read that r had beaten Samuels's, but I'm happy to see I'm mistaken about that.
|22 hours 29 min ago||At 4.56, Dillon is a bit of||
At 4.56, Dillon is a bit of lightning himself. That's not exactly DeVeon Smith speed.
|22 hours 43 min ago||Taking a look a few years||
Taking a look a few years ago, Dillon looks kinda similar to Derrick Henry. He was 6'3" 243, 4.52 40, 4.12 shuttle and 41.9 vertical. Dillon's numbers are not quite there, but pretty darn close for a dude of very similar size.
|22 hours 48 min ago||This doesn't change your||
This doesn't change your point at all, but I believe Samuels's sparq score has been broken.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Byron Scott is not a terrible||
Byron Scott is not a terrible coach. He did well before he was with the Lakers, and he actually had HC experience. And unless the Lakers make a big splash in FA this offseason (and I don't know who they could get that would do that) losing those guys you mention doesn't do any good. They still need veteran leadership because those guys are young. And you'll only have them on rookie contracts for so long, and I think they have to pay Clarkson this year, right?
|1 day 21 hours ago||But when he was a champion as||
But when he was a champion as player and coach, he was never a main guy. He was a role player and an assistant. I just don't see why the Lakers have a young up and comer as their #1 guy. It's kinda like USC hiring Clay Helton. Those teams should be able to grab an established, proven guy. Not someone who has never done it before.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Is it a great hire? He's a||
Is it a great hire? He's a guy who has never been a HC outside of half a season as an interim and not terribly much as an assistant. How is that great? On its face it looks pretty mediocre to me. If Luke hadn't played or the Lakers (which is no help as a coach) would you still call it a great hire?
|2 days 8 hours ago||Being able to win with this||
Being able to win with this Warriors team is lot different than doing it with this Lakers team.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Definitely Taco, very likely||
Definitely Taco, very likely Dymonte. Probably not Clark or Stribling but possibly one of the OL (but probably not).
|2 days 8 hours ago||I don't know though. Cook||
I don't know though. Cook could lead a genocide and I still don't see how you draft Hackenberg or Kessler over him (I don't know much about Jacoby Brissett).
|2 days 8 hours ago||Josh Uche. Dude is the next||
Josh Uche. Dude is the next Von Miller. You can take that to the bank.
|2 days 9 hours ago||God I just spent a long time||
God I just spent a long time trying to think who the other first rounder was. Thanks for that.
|2 days 9 hours ago||I'm willing to bet Glasgow||
I'm willing to bet Glasgow won't be playing in the previous 50 so that's pretty irrelevant.
|2 days 10 hours ago||All the Lion hating is really||
All the Lion hating is really lame. Are they the Patriots? No. But they've been an average team over the last 5 years. There are worse places he could have ended up, and only a few that are measurably better.

That sucks. As it turns out, I was gone from my faimly more than half a day today. All week, in fact. My kids may never forgive me.

Harbaugh must be forcing him to do this.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Yes, people with cash have||
Yes, people with cash have shitty days. But this isn't really a shitty day, and the shittiest part has to do only with money (dropping down the draft board). So it's like a rich guy having a bad day because his investments had a big drop. He's less rich today than he could have been, but he's still a really rich dude so people aren't going to feel all that bad for him.
It's not like Tunsil lost his mother or was diagnosed with Leukemia. He didn't have some major unfortunate event happen to him. He lost some millions of dollars (but will still get many millions of dollars) by doing something stupid. So yeah, I think money does have something to do with it.
|2 days 16 hours ago||There's a difference between||
There's a difference between "that situation sucks" and "I genuinely feel bad for him." He's a super high profile guy who is about to make a ton of money. He's been a local celebrity for 3 years. He has it good. The downside of fame is that when you do stupid stuff, a lot of people care. He's learning that right now the hard way, as many have before him.
I am lucky because if I post a video on Twitter (I don't have instagram) of me smoking a gas mask bong, no one will care because only like 63 people or something like that follow me and outside of my wife who never checks Twitter, none of those 63 would have an opinion on it one way or another. Hell, 40 or so of those people don't know what I look like. I'm unlucky because I don't make millions and millions of dollars playing in the NFL.
Laremy Tunsil could have my life (approximately) if he wanted it. In fact, in the very recent past Eric Crouch had my same position in my company in Nebraska. He has chosen (wisely, in my opinion) that he'd rather play in the NFL so he has to deal with the pros and cons that go with that. Thus, I don't feel bad for him.

Didn't Harbaugh do something similar with guys from Stanford?
|2 days 18 hours ago||My guess is still that Paea||
My guess is still that Paea will be a NT. He just sounds like he could be a huge, strong 2-gapper type. And that's good because that's the position we need the most.

|2 days 22 hours ago||You're the second person to||
You're the second person to say Henne was the first pick in the second round, but he was not. He was the 57th pick. That's closer to the 3rd round than the 1st.

Henne was mid second round.
