    Interesting, from the 2012 list, they only drafted 4 of the 30, and all but Mike Adams were 7th rounders (Clemons, Paulson, Beachum).

    John Simon.. you mentioned him in your mock Bryan, good call

    I like C.Michael,.. he is not being talked about much

  • $19122620

    I like Michael too.

  • dave

    This is always a good source of information. You can count on 3,4,5 of these guys ending up on the roster, not just as draft picks but as undrafted players too.

    2010 – Pouncey, Emmanuel Sanders, Antonio Brown
    2011 – Marcus Gilbert, Curtis Brown, Cortez Allen, Weslye Sanders, Keith Williams, Corbin Bryant, Anthony Gray

    2011 was not a banner year.

    Michael looks like one of the best running backs in this class, but with his off the field issues, and the failed Chris Rainey pick, he will really have to prove he has changed his ways.

  • Lamarr56

    I heard they brought in Arther Brown, I could be wrong though.

  • The Fighting Ingies

    With all the visits that Colbert, Tomlin, company have made for the Combine and Pro-days, these visits that they bring in should be real interesting to try to read into.
    C Michael has his documented issues. V Williams could be a medical since he reportedly was slowed with a cracked tibia last spring – both of these guys flashed in the all-star bowl games. Finally J Simon is looking like a position switch from DE to OLB
    I would expect many of the remaining visits to fit in these categories

  • SteelSpine

    The needed stats a poster Dennisdoubleday provided above to give needed balance to the topic, tells you how much to read into who they bring in.

    I think altho part of interview is to try to determine mental compatability, I’ve heard part of interviews is to ask the player which other NFL teams expressed interest, to help team guess how late in draft can wait to draft the guy. Also, remember who they bring in is only who the team wants all teams to know are bringing in, tho I think using it to make a red herring is unlikely. Also I’ve read interviewers glean info from the interviewee about his teammates, & a reason the team does that is to get info about teammate as under-the-radar instead of that team announcing interest in that teammate. All this might sound nuts but remember the draft is all about waiting as late as you can to draft who you want, so ya can use earlier picks for other/priority needs.

    Also most draft-eligible players go to any of many “draft preparation camps”, since higher you get drafted will be higher pay. Those pre-draft prep camps are everywhere now. There, prospects not only learn how to get a faster 40 time but learn how to answer questions in interviews. In those camps the prospects learn how to answer questions likely to be asked by NFL teams in pre-draft interviews, to get drafted as high as possible.

    I really doubt an NFL team is looking very closely at who the other teams are bringing in for pre-draft visits. That’s 30 teams by 30 players: 900 pieces of info is a lot to keep in mind.

  • steeltown

    True.
    What were the off field issues? I know he got in some ‘twitter trouble’ at one point

  • steeltown

    I hope so

  • SCSteeler

    I’m excited about this list so far! Really starting to like Phillip Thomas! What round do you guys see him getting drafted? And do you guys see Kaseem Greene as an OLB or ILB for us?

    From espn.com —->Had a tough senior campaign and did not see eye-to-eye with new Head Coach Kevin
    Sumlin. Suspended for the SMU game for violating team rules. Also was ejected
    from the Sam Houston State game for throwing a punch in the second quarter.
    Slept through two meeting with scouts at the NFL combine.

  • Kevin Gobleck

    Man i am completely happy with all of the players we brought in.

  • Kevin Gobleck

    and if were going to take chances on running back i’d rather it be M. Lattimore.
