    "Youngstown State edge-rusher Derek Rivers is hardly a household name. But after starring for the Penguins and testing off the charts in Indianapolis at the scouting combine, Bleacher Report's Charles McDonald suggested on the The Ringer NFL Show that Rivers could be Round 1's biggest stunner.

    "I wouldn't be surprised to see Derek Rivers go in like the top 40 or even slide into the back half of the first round, just because he has all of the things you look for except for the brand name from the school," McDonald said."

          Yeah man he is up there with the best of them.. getting more media attention.... would not surprise me to see him go way earlier than projected. Looks like he could be a gem among gems and if he drops could be a fantastic value pick. One of those guys who a few years from now e1 could be saying how did we pass on that guy?

Kid has a weird background/character concerns, but Mayock thinks he'll be a surprise talent for whoever drafts him late. Ran a 4.41 at combine too, 2nd fastest in his class. I know I know, not meant for the giants.. Gotta check this tape tho:

            He is a dude. No doubt. Loaded RB class. He is another underrated, under the radar stand out. Put him on the wish list. sheesh, with so many to choose from,we better get one of them!

                  Blair Brown = Ray Lewis?

                  both short & underrated in the draft. Both monster hitters and monster producers/tacklers.

                        When was Lewis underrated? If it wasn't for off-field stuff he would have been a top 10-15 pick

                          ok correction. off field stuff then. different reason for dropping i suppose. i didnt know, i just knew he wasnt as high a pick as he should have been talent wise.

                            I remember that draft. Knew about Lewis's red flags but was shocked as he kept on slipping and slipping. Ravens got a steal at 26. Same thing will happen this year if teams pass on Foster in the 20's. If he's there at 23, I take him.
                            Before any of the nit-pickers lose their mind, in no way am I saying Foster will definitely be a future HOFer or comparing him to Ray Lewis. But the kid is a beast.

                              UDFA TE Michael Roberts

                              Possibly the biggest Red zone threat in the draft. The guy had 16 touchdowns in 45 attempts and 80% of his catches went for first downs. That is crazy. Hire that offensive coordinator quick lol.

                              http://www.steelersdepot.com/2017/04...chael-roberts/

                              strong guy that could be an h back or blocking full back potentially as well.

                              if he is there in the 7th or goes UDFA i would be happy if the Giants take him.
                              "Michael Roberts, Toledo, 6-4, 270, tight end: Has the size, athleticism and elite production (80 percent of catches for first downs, 35.5 percent for touchdowns). Motor and speed are questions. Projection: fifth-sixth round."


                              below is an article that has him at #61 overall draft pick. I think that is crazy but... ya never know.
