    Two quick takeaways on this -

    First, I would like to see 10 additional pounds put on Harrison and list him with the ILBs.

    Second, Armani Watts did not score nearly as well as I thought he might for the initial round.

    I hate FSU, but their secondary plays ball. I watched the Miami/FSU game over the bar at a hockey arena, so I wasn't watching as intently as possible, but I saw those safeties almost make some scary plays. "Range" is the best descriptor.

    The bold is dead on. Derwin gets most of the pub, but Trey should be getting a lot more mentions.

    I think Donnie Miles may end up being a player to watch going into the off-season. If he tests well his stock is probably going to be extremely upward mobile.

    #1 thing for safety class: don't leave a loaded gun with the safety off in your pants.

    FSU's Derwin James just declared himself NFL eligible and will NOT play in the upcoming bowl game.

    One of the few instances I don't blame a kid for not playing...The team has quit, the coach is gone, they really should have eloquently ducked out of bowl consideration all together. Since they didn't, let the new coach get to know "his players" for the future. James has nothing else to prove and his team is done...

    I agree 100%. If I was in that situation, no way would I play a meaningless bowl game and risk a potential injury of any sort. Not with an NFL career in clear view.

    Kentucky S Mike Edwards is going back to school. Passes on Draft 2018.

    Eric Reid's younger brother, Justin (Stanford Cardinal Safety), has declared NFL Draft eligible.

    Couple of interesting changes...

    Derwin moved down two spots to #4. The scores for Reid, Allen and James are all close so when the third round of scoring wraps up and some of the scores get put against the combine it could easily shift back. What grabbed my attention some was the idea that James had been considered by many to be a clear #1 for a bit, then the definite #2. If his combine numbers are anything less than what are being anticipated, will James see a day one slide? I think it's definitely possible and probably more so than a lot of people would think.

    Evan Berry and Trey Marshall being at 7 and 8 sparks my interest a bit. They both have range and athleticism with Berry being a touch ahead of Marshall, but they both have dealt with injuries making their developmental arc incomplete. It's a pairing of players that will probably slide some but if they can remain healthy they could represent real steals.
