LSU players playing up or down to competition has been going on ever since Miles got there.

Sam should now be seen as a Carlos Dunlap type.

He was never that good of a prospect.
Dunlap was a rare blend of size and athleticism who had motivation issues largely at practice and the DUI.

He wont have the sheer upside that kept Dunlap in the 2nd

I just meant that if you can get someone that can motivate him he can be a solid player. And Dunlap was notorious for taking weeks at a time off at UF.

Public humiliation from his coach didn't work, so I dont see Montgomery as being much of anything.

Wow, that ain't good to hear. Btw, do you have a credible source where he admitted that, or is that just something that you know from personal observation?

Personal observation and pretty much every scouting report on him. Atkins was also called out for work ethic and conditioning. College kids can be lazy sometimes.

Doesn't really help that Miles, Richt and Urbz aren't know as masters of discipline.

Especially the ones who smoke dope. Wonder if that could be a hidden problem.

Well, today was weigh ins and benching for the D-line.

Damontre Moore came in at 250 at 6-5.

However, the worst? He benched only 12 reps.

Devin Taylor, someone a lot of people liked from the East-West game, game in at 6-7, 266 lbs. However, only did 14 bench reps.

That's crazy to think about. Especially with how the wide receivers and running backs performed with the weight bench

(Also, made a thread by accident and I didn't see this)

I see Margus Hunt has already started the Freak Show.

38 reps with almost 34" arms.

Jesse Williams stopped at 30 reps? Thought he was going for a combine record. There must have been a lot of agents getting in their clients ear as about a dozen guys stopped at 30 reps also.

For an MJ clone, 14 is HALF of what MJ did.

Let him drop!

Yes. I used to blaze with an OSU player before he went to practice.

I thought Hunt would be exposed as a stiff, but so far he's looked good. I still wouldn't touch him until the 3rd, but I was wrong guessing he'd struggle during the combine.

After a poor practice week at the Seniorbowl, Ansah has stepped up. Jay getting first hand view working him out.

Too bad we went back to back DT's early last year. We'll have to pass on some good dt talent this draft.

We just do not have enough information to make that decision. Do the names change on a weekly basis? Or is this a damning statement about the work ethic of a handfull of players?

No way of knowing with out actually asking the question.

You would think because one sign is old, and one is new, that the names change over time.

I honestly would not be opposed to shopping Peko if we have a chance to land Jesse Williams. I think Williams is going to be a special player for a long time.

**Edit** Good lord, Kwame Geathers ran a 5.4 at 6'5" and 350 lbs. The level of athleticism on display this year is staggering.

Considering he flat out admitted to it, I think it is pretty safe to say he is gonna have some serious redflags about him
