Pro Day Coverage

Submitted by blueinbeantown on March 14th, 2019 at 8:13 AM

Does anyone know if coverage of tomorrow's Pro Day will be available on TV or via live stream?  With so many players in the mix, guessing it will heavily attended.  Always fun to see what coaches are there and working with player groups.  Would be fun to watch on a Friday AM.

Apparently Wilton Speight will be coming back to Michigan to throw at our Pro Day, per Harbaugh on his podcast.

Pro Day is also closed to the public so it may not be televised or streamed.

I still wouldn't be shocked if Gentry goes a bit higher than that. Not saying he will, but you can't teach size and he's still new to the position so you can project further growth. He said he liked what he heard when they submitted his name to the draft committee FWIW. 

Doing well tomorrow would help him for sure. Scouts get to work him out directly which is a bigger opportunity than incrementally better times anyway.

That's an odd take on a guy who averaged 17.8 and 16.1 yards per catch over the past two seasons, along with catching 49 passes in that span. The guy had a couple drops late in the season, and that seems to have really colored a lot of people's opinions. There's a whole lot of recency bias going on there.

Even worse, recency bias being spouted by recently-joined shitposters.  Take a look at the join dates of all the Gentry-haters arguing with you and OwenGoBlue.  Every single one of them with join dates of 2018 and 2019.

I think this blog took a wrong turn last year when version 3.0 replaced 2.0 and the voting system changed.  We (AND the mods) need to see both the upvotes and the downvotes that MGoPosters receive for what they post, not just the net difference. 

The pipeline to Bolivia needs to be reopened before this place gets any more like RCMB and/or the MLive comments section than it already is.

Yeah, it's very surprising to me that so much of this has not been fixed. At this point it just seems like we're going to have to settle for the site being broken, just like we had to deal with 2.0 being broken for several years (for example, being unable to open page 2 of the MGoBoard).

It looks like Rashan Gary is falling in mock drafts. I saw two where he is now out of the top 15. This all after the combine.

 

ProFootballFocus did a 1st round mock where they say what they think "should be" not what they think "will be". Rashan Gary is not even in that 1st round. And he is not in their top 6 EDGE. But Chase Winovich is at #2 EDGE, ahead of Montez Sweat.

I don't know if you're joking. I don't think he's going to be taken in the top 10. But I don't think he'll fall all the way to the 2nd round.

 

Do you think he belongs at DT instead of DE? That seems to be going around a lot. Do you agree?

There was a lot of talk that Jon Gruden wants him, and will take him at #4. But that talk is gone now. Now the talk is they will move up to get Kyler Murray. Who knows.

I don't think he'll drop to the 2nd round. I was just joking.

Yes, I think he's a 3-tech or a 3-4 DE. I think he can be a 5-tech DE in an even front, but I just don't know if he can be an outstanding player in that spot. Well...I think we've already seen that he won't be a standout as a 5-tech. He had two seasons with Chase Winovich coming off the opposite edge, and there still wasn't enough juice to make a lot of plays.

Sorry I didn't catch the joke.

 

After watching him for 3 years, it seems like a risk to draft him with high expectations. I don't think he will play like a op 15 pick. But he has push against a double team, just not the quickness to get off the blocks and make havoc. Like you say, where's the juice. So it seems he'd make a better DT.
