Of course you would add details to it now.
Your other was post wasn't accurate, imo.
Any one have any thoughts or players in mind that they feel may challenge Haha for the top safety spot. I haven't really heard much about safety prospects, and I'm wondering about who may be some worthy prospects to take a look at...
Once he committed to Alabama he was, lol
Then why do you have him above Richardson? Richardson kept Clowney in check all game except one freaking play last year. Richardson didn't need help.
Did I provide a link to the thread I'm referring to, so people here can rush in to 'help'? No.
Have I posted in the thread I'm referring to since starting this thread (well, about Kouandjio anyway)? No.
'SEC-centric' does not mean they all bow down to Kouandjio.
In fact, I was going to post on here that I feel like I may have been 'owned' in that thread. Here's the response I'm talking about:
"ok...so thomas, who played his entire career as a tackle played last season as a guard. Good. But you're deflecting from the point. Which is CyKo wasn't an elite tackle last year.
The fact that the coaches chose an OG, that isn't elite, over him as an all conference selection actually makes my argument stronger. They wouldnt even have considered putting Thomas, or any other OG, on the all sec team if CyKo was truely an elite LT last year.
This isn't about Matthews (again chill with the projections) or anyone else. This is about Kouandijo not playing at an all conference level much less an All American level last year. If he wasn't elite according to the guys who played against and know him best then he wasn't an elite LT last year. Just give it up, you're calling him elite based on HS rankings and not how he played.
Nice conversating with you though."
Elite = Any Person who is consider to be the best at their Position or at least Top 5 at their Position. Cyrus will be consider that this year barring any of kind Injury. Also will be Projected to be one of the 1st 5 LT taken in Draft. So correct answer is not based on last year alone answer is no, but by the end of 2013 Season the answer will be yes. Honest Answer from a Bama Fan.

Fair enough answer based upon your definition. The definition of the word elite is what is hamstringing this conversation more than anything.
Richardson is the second best pass protector of the group but he is not strong as a run blocker. His inability to control defenders and move them out the gap was the primary reason ut run game suffered
I would take a ban bet with anyone that Tiny is drafted before CK
Our Butch is an awesome Butch he reigns from Knoxville with Jalen Hurd on the way our Butch is an awesome Butch
You would lose but I won't entertain bets with trolls. If UT break .500 then come back and talk football
I wouldn't take it either if I were you. Tiny is going before CK
Tennessee's run game suffered because the qb couldn't read a defense for squat dude. The play calling was pretty much predictable. Neal also likes to dance like he's auditioning for Dancing with the Stars. But the primary reason was Tiny WTF..... Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha
Yeah that guy who said it was on Tiny is an idiot lol kinda sad to watch actually
He struggles to move runners out their gap which prohibits your guards to make it to the second level. Richardson is a mid first round to second round talent. Great at pass protection, below average to average run blocker. Predictable play calling means nothing. You think notre dame didn't realize bama was running left majority of the game? No matter the play call it mainly comes down to who wins the line of scrimmage between your offensive lineman and their d lineman.
You guys are worse than arguing with bama fans about b Jones.... No need in discussing and I'm sure u won't remember this come April after tiny falls down the draft board because he plays to high during run blocking and his flexibility is very average.
Um.... I have my opinion and you have yours.... Tiny wasn't the problem with the run game.... Predictive play calling is bad... Yeah it's about execution, but Bray couldn't audible his way out of a wet paper sack... None of the running backs could break tackles.... Neal would dance around and run outside.... The offensive play calling was so predictive.... But keep thinking Tiny was the primary reason.... Hahahahahahahaha.....
I will admit I went to far with saying he was the primary reason ut run game was bad, that was a stupid statement. I still stand by him being more of a waist bender, comes late out of hos stance to often, and has bad leverage in run blocking. He is a stud no doubt and much like Cyrus is getting a pass for some flaws because it was his first year starting at left tackle so should tiny. I still have him as #4 right now imo but he has the potential to pass Lewan and Cyrus. I think Cyrus is the only one that has the athleticism and footwork to surpass Matthews
OK, dude ... well let's go off CBS Sports' gurus, then. They both have CyKo going as the 3rd OT picked. Is that elite enough? Or does he have to be the first OT taken? My god some of you people can be argumentative pussies sometimes.
Either way, on draft night Cyrus Kouandjio will be selected before the local news comes on, and he'll have another BCS ring on the way.

How many NFL scouts have you asked?? the movebysticks guy on twitter had Matthews rated higher.
D'onofrio is just a pawn. This is Al Golden's team and Al's defense. Al's the clown. Dorito's just the floppy shoes.

Finished up the top 3 OT's. Will be fun to track these guys during the fall. As of now, I have it-- 1-Koundjio 2-Matthews 3-Lewan.
Not being a smartass, but there's one.
That's one argument I lost. I debated being a smart ass and saying he isn't a current NFL scout, but I respect D Jeremiah's opinion a lot.
I do disagree with his rankings though based on last year's tape.
Yep. Lewan got abused in the bama game.
