Slater has multiple warts

size/length - short arms, I think?

Northwestern is not exactly a power school with top competition every game

and he opted out of 2020

I have seen this guy mocked anywhere from top 5 to mid second round.  its bizarre.

as I have said before, all of the worthy picks at 5 have significant warts, as I see it

I feel more confident in the Bengals’ ability to evaluate the 0-line prospects now that they’ve hired Pollack.  Jim Turner truly was a disaster.

kinda sad that Devonta Smith was unwilling to have his height and weight measured......clearly a draft strategy but bottomline irritating

I know the same article says he will be measured at his pro day, but athletes who refuse measures seem untrustworthy to me. 

Just as I - an applications developer - should be willing to demonstrate my coding ability at any interview, so should an athlete be willing to have their measurables measured, as those are important in their employer's hiring process.  Not permitting this is to me highly questionable

It seems pointless to refuse to be weighed and measured.  Once you go interview, the guys are going to get a good look at you and basically know how tall you are and how much you weigh.    Pointless.

.......and to be clear, I am looking for a plug and play type on the OL

so for me this makes Slater look even more attractive, albeit as an IOL (short arms), not an OT, at least initially (try some OT time in preseason or garbage time)

Jeremiah's top 10 from senior bowl practice (there doesnt seem to be a day 3 summary)

https://www.nfl.com/news/2021-senior-bowl-daniel-jeremiah-s-top-10-nfl-draft-winners-from-week-of-practic

I like Basham in round 3, or even mid 2 if we get a mid 2 in a tradedown

fully aware that passrushing DE is a very big need, almost as big as the OL need

Truth be told I'd be surprised to hear Burrow say "nah, I don't want that guy" about any prospect. But clearly he'd be excited to throw to Chase again.

true dat.

He says the inoffensive things

I wait for the moment where he comes out and admits that his offensive line in 2020 provided less protection than a wet paper bag

hey Mem, Sheeran likes Chase as much as you do, maybe more

he states guarantees at the end of this video

https://twitter.com/i/status/1347553142762737666

that Chase will be the pick if the Bengals address OL in FA

My problem with this is that the Bengals definition of "address OL" probably involves much less talented player(s) than I am expecting, which is two OL one of which must be a ORT and both of which must be notably above the midline in ranked performance numbers for pass pro at their given positions, and not older than 30.

and if my expectations are met and Chase is the pick, I'd still want another OT with our early r2 pick

and OC needs to be addressed no later than r5, since Billy is on the last year or his contract and we need to get Hopkins eventual successor grooming this year so if Hopkins goes down next year we have the "next guy steps up" guy

They do what they need to do in FA and the draft opens up. Yeah, I would still love Chase. But really, that depends on actual work being done in FA. Fingers crossed.

Slater over chase and Sewell is a thing one could have mocked, yes. Not that one should. But one could.
