  • Fluker might go #7 overall to the Cardinals...

    http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/8332/dj-fluker


    His weight loss has risen his stock tremendously. Teams are realizing that since he's slimmer/quicker now, he'll pass-protect a lot better than what he showed on tape in 2012 (which wasn't bad to begin with)

    It seems less and less likely that Fluker will be available at 19

    He will be drafted by either the Cardinals (7), Chargers (11), or Dolphins (12)

    I doubt he goes befor the 3 LTs and the 2 Gs. Those 5 players won't go in the top 6 picks...

      The 3 LTs could all be gone in the Top 6

      And if a team after that values OT more than OG, then it's not that inconceivable

      Fluker will be a stud in the NFL

        I would be hugely surprised if Fluker goes that early....

          lol I hope so. Push the better players back.

          And the Cards just drafted Bobby Massie last year.

            Well if Fluker is gone that makes it more likely that a prime guy (like Rhodes) will be there for us.
            But I tend to doubt that Fluker will be gone by 19.
            Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

              I also tend to doubt that Fluker will be gone by 20.

                Not bashing Fluker, but I would be surprised if he went that early. I think this is a rumor only.

                With regards to his weight. It is always a good thing when a player takes this draft process seriously and gets himself in better shape for it. That is what Fluker did. But, you cannot ignore the fact that he has had weight problems in his past. It was widely reported that he spent time this past season over 400 lbs.

                Many GMs treat weight problems similarly to am off the field character concern because it has ruined many a career. The NFL demands discipline and playing tackle is 1 of the most discipline demanding positions.

                  His agent says he can go #7 overall. I'm shocked

                      I'd like to see those reports because physically he's actually pretty well put together, not like say another Bama Olineman who went top 10, Andre Smith

                          I wanted Massie, I heard he started ruff but came along throughout the season....Any team spending a top 10 pick on a Tackle that's not a LT is insane imo...

                            "Several scouts" around the NFL have expressed concerns about Alabama RT D.J. Fluker's "study and work habits.""Great kid, but you don't want him doing your taxes," said one scout. Another scout compared Fluker to a stronger, more competitive version of Bryan Bulaga, but "maybe not as smart." Fluker bounced around three high schools because his family was forced out of New Orleans due to Hurricane Katrina. It's not surprising he may be a bit learning-deficient. We still like Fluker to be a top-12 pick.

                              I admit when I watched that Sports Science bit I couldn't believe how much better in shape he looked. No stomach flabbing out or anything. He looked great.
