    I think they’re just leaking that so someone doesn’t think they’re willing to trade up a bunch for Tua.

  18. “Tank for Tua” was a giant smokescreen so they could get Herbert

    Me and Matt watching the Senior Bowl.

    I literally paused it around 3:30 in the third quarter and said to matt Bradley Anae has won multiple times because he has terrific hands (hand combat) and that he seems to be the one finishing even though Josh Uche was getting there first.

    I pressed play and they immediately did a breakdown of Bradley Anae and I’m pretty sure he said “terrific hands” and “great finisher” verbatim as the only two descriptive terms.

    I do this all the time lol hire me to be an announcer.

    People probably see a hometown link with him and the bengals, but honestly where I think he’s from is probably about as close to Cinci as it is Pittsburgh and Cleveland.

    So. I watched a bunch of tape on the potential first round tackles, particularly Tristan Wirfs, Jedrick Wills and Andrew Thomas. and idk? I feel like it’s pretty blatantly obvious Thomas is the best. Can someone please explain to me how Thomas isn’t the top tackle in a lot of mock drafts lately? People have him falling to the teens and shit and being the 3rd tackle selected and I just don’t get it.

    Thomas has elite agility and footwork, very good length, and he’s strong / stout enough to not be dismissed as a “finesse player” - he can dig his feet in the ground and be an anchor against defensive tackles if necessary. His punch timing is good too.

    Thomas and Wills are the only tackles I’ve watched who consistently squat at the correct angle to get leverage, and who correctly set up their hands with good footwork on a regular basis. As opposed to, the common flaw of reaching & lunging at defenders due to poor footwork / a high center of gravity. Wills is even more of a technician than Thomas, but MUCH less athletic.

    As a pass blocker he’s phenomenal. Especially against speed rush, his kickslide is elite, which is huge in a league where pass rushers are running 4.5-4.6. I only saw him make one mistake the whole game vs Chaisson on LSU. He ALSO dealt with Rashard Lawrence’s power on some “stunt” playcalls, and Lawrence never got past him. The pass blocking is like, “top 5 pick” good.

    My only knock on Thomas is he’s much better for a zone running scheme than a power/gap scheme - he is a very quick & smart move blocker but he isn’t a road grader who can move bodies in a phone booth. That’s the only thing Wirfs does better than Thomas. The NFL is gonna want him to get even stronger than he is (which is a natural rite of passage for rookie OL). But if scouts think he can bulk up more I don’t see how he isn’t at least a top 7 player in this draft.

    I also like Josh Jones a LOT and am leaning towards having a higher grade on him than Wirfs. Which seems very controversial to the consensus. Only reason I’m hesitant is cause he played against worse competition, but his tape against better teams is still very good.

    Wirfs tape is mostly good but he got absolutely destroyed by Josh Uche this year and Montez Sweat last year. The Michigan tape especially is concerning cause the other DE clearly beat him a couple times too. (Granted, I also am very high on both Montez Sweat and Josh Uche, wasn’t exactly surprised to see them go off vs Iowa)

    Becton is the most impressive tackle on tape

    Wirfs is Andrus Peat and needs to move to guard
