I’m watching Florida & Ole Miss game on ESPN. All-American TE Kyle Pitts is one of the best receiving TEs I’ve ever seen. I don’t know about his blocking skills (FL running a spread offense) but as a receiver he’s going to be a Travis Kelce / Zach Ertz type of talent in the league. He’ll definitely will need to put on more muscle weight to his lean frame.

HE racks up huge numbers with the talent advantage Clemson has against most teams.

But he couldn't keep up with Burrow last year when they needed him to go score for score.


Nah he balled out during the playoffs. I used to say the same thing about him but the kid is the real deal. He singlehandedly defeated the Ohio State Buckeyes with his running ability and talented arm. I stopped doubting him then.


I remember those runs. But he's not a runner like Murray or Jackson.

Would be more impressed if he can scramble and extend plays and hit big pass plays.

DB, ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE


Speaking with Fran Duffy on the 'Journey to the Draft' podcast, The Athletic's Dane Brugler forwarded Alabama junior CB Patrick Surtain as his pick for first defensive player drafted in the spring.

Brugler explained that while "you could argue" that Penn State LB Micah Parsons is the more talented defender at this juncture, but that Surtain's position and its importance inherently give the Alabama junior a leg up in terms of likely draft position. The evaluator believes we could see Surtain pegged off the spring board around the same lofty slot as OSU's Jeffrey Okudah. Okudah was selected by the Lions with the No. 3 overall pick in April.

is he actually that good? or is his name part of his hype?


I’ve seen him get beat badly last year, but Jamar Chase will do that to almost anyone. I also seen Auburn Seth Williams getting the best of him. Having said that, he’s one of my favorite corners to come out of the college ranks since Janoris Jenkins left the college ranks.

Remember when we passed on Mahomes and Watson for Solomon Thomas? Kittle aside, that was a really, really bad draft....

I'm just slightly joking. Garoppolo has the rest of the season to show that he can win games when everything else isn't clicking. If he can't, he's gone. It's a shame, 'cause he could certainly do it pre-injury.

I didn’t want to make the trade for Jimmy G to begin with. Acquiring him from the Patriots led to him winning some meaningful games, and out of position to draft a franchise QB that offseason. Rumor has it that we didn’t even bother scouting the QBs because we had Garoppolo on the roster. Had we not have him, Shanahan would have undoubtedly scouted and fall in love with Mahomes.

I think Kyle really needed it. Team was off to a real poor record and he wanted to win, not position for the draft, even though that would have been the better strategy.

In any event, say they cut ties, because apparently his contract allows that. Who replaces him?

At this point, they can't go for another developmental project. Will there be someone available like Tannehill, who went through his rookie deal with Dolphins who cut him loose but change of scenery raised his level of play?

Maybe take a chance on someone like Darnold? Or Rosen? Not sure Rosen would be available but Darnold could be.

Rest of the team is ready to contend so do you take a chance on someone unproven?

:nod: I’d love to have Darnold. He would excel in our system. He’s much more mobile in the pocket than any other QB on our roster.

We traded for Garoppolo the season after Mahomes came out. Shanahan scouted Mahomes and decided he didn't want him. Watson too.

Well that's if Darnold hasn't been broken by his years with the Jets.


As far as Mahomes, lot of teams obviously didn't think he'd be this kind of player.

Maybe Reid got way more out of him than Kyle or any other coach would have gotten. I think McVay would have designed easy plays for him, though he doesn't need tricky bubble screens like Goff.

But Mahomes' genius is really making plays on the run. He's better at it than Wilson or young Rothlisberger. He just buys enough time for Hill to get 40 yards downfield and he's got a cannon arm with elite ball placement.

It seems most of the big pass plays he makes are second reaction or off-schedule as Kyle likes to call it, not off play design. So that may be why Kyle didn't want him not running his "glorious" plays the way God intended.

TREVOR LAWRENCE
QB, CLEMSON TIGERS


Clemson junior QB Trevor Lawrence completed 24-of-32 passes for 404 yards with five touchdowns and an interception in a 73-7 win over Georgia Tech on Saturday.

Oh what a game this could have been for Clemson if this game was remotely close. While the 6-foot-6, 220-pound quarterback did throw an interception, he was pretty much perfect outside of that throw, and all five touchdowns came in the first half to build a 52-7 lead against a completely overmatched Georgia Tech defense. And offense. And special teams. The interception was the first he had thrown since October 19. Lawrence is as good as it gets in the sport, and Clemson improves to 5-0 on the season. They'll improve to 6-0 after they beat Syracuse next Saturday.
