    I thought Linam was picked up by the Browns? He'd be decent as an ILB, don't think he'll make the squad though. And I love the Logan Harrell signing..

    Kinda surprised we bothered with Lee, neither of the LSU QBs were really worth a damn last year

    De'Andre Pressley is an interesting choice. Likely sees time as a CB.

    Adonis Thomas is a fast little bugger. Much more of a Sproles type of back than Baker.

    Adonis Thomas certainly has some quick feet. He dances a bit too much, but that can be fixed with the right coaching.

    yeah, good luck with that one.

    i'm guessing he's nothing more than a camp arm.
    someone to take reps with practice squad or something.

    i have a tough time believing he's even gonna win the 2nd or 3rd string job.
    and I seriously doubt he ever sees the field in the regular season (even if y'all didn't have a top level QB already).

    I truly think that this may be the first year an UDFA makes our 53, beside Cattouse and Lee has anyone ever heard of any of these guys?

    I mean hell I would've preferred Keenum or Moore by a substantial margin over either LSU QB

    I agree with that. Unless one absolutely blows away the pre-season I don't see any of them being worth a roster spot.

    Still dont;) The thought of any UDFA getting a starting job at the beginning of the season is ridiculous

    would you feel differently if he was drafted in the..oh say...3rd round, but had the exact same preseason performance?

    Pre season performance? you mean not going up against Demarcus Ware, getting beat by Jared Allen all day and doing alright against S.F.'s 3rd stringers

    Not trying to talk down on the kid because I do think this kid has a bright future and could be the RT of the future. I'd love to eat my hat on this if I'm wrong but we haven't seen this kid in the real game yet. I'd suggest we wait on throwing ticker tape parade until next Tuesday

    Ticker tape parade? I must have missed that. I did have to throw up my umbrella to deflect the piss accompanying the moaning.

    No pissing and moaning, maybe I read that post incorrectly but it sounded like MOP knew all along Harris was a stud or something riding around on a high horse, I was just saying lower expectations until we see how he holds up.

    I'm all for realistic expectations & wasn't referring to you specifically re: pissing & moaning. There's been plenty of that attitude to go around. But once again - if as football fans we can't be optimistic at this time of year, then maybe we should just stick to watching the political conventions. :rolleyes:

    Wayyy wrong! I almost never watch college football (something to do with a pact with the wife, saturdays with her, sundays NFL), you won't find me talking about college prospects much, if ever.

    Like I stated in my post, I was just wondering

    yes, preseason performance, do you know what the term performance means? do you know that someone can perform well, bad, so-so, et. ?

    This was in response to your post about a UDFA starting being "ridiculous", My questions was if he were a 3rd rounder instead of an UDFA...
