Yeah, Alabama line is dominating tonite. That makes a lot easier for Lacey run the ball.

I would love him depending on who else is on the board.

My post was very reactionary to him just going into beast mode and throwing that one dude down.

C.J. Mosley looks pretty beastly as well.

I heard Mosley isn't going to declare though. I hope he does. Just another slot added for someone to drop to us.

Yeah, I'm a pretty big Lacy fan. I'd really like him on the Steelers; I saw a few mocks peg him around the 3rd/4th, though. Regardless, I'm sure this game will bring a lot of player's draft stocks up. Lacy is having a hell of a game.

Lewis-Moore's injury doesn't look encouraging- ND absolutely needs him.

It would be nice if Mosley came out but I heard he won't.

Te'o has not looked good in this game. I can definitely see him slipping a bit in the draft now.

Warmack is a damn beast. I could have gone without him trotting around with his shirt only pulled half way down and his fat belly hanging out everywhere before the game though.

I also like Lacey but his O-Line is ridiculously dominate. Hard to judge guys like that.

I wonder what this game will do to his stock coupled with what could be less than impressive combine results as speculated by a few sites.

I'd still take Te'o at 17. I know he's having a nightmare game and he is obviously over-hyped because of playing for ND but the kid only had like 2 missed tackles all year before this game.

I still think he's a safe bet to be a good NFL player. Maybe not the most upside but the floor and ceiling seem like they'd be close together with a guy like him.

didn't Mendenhall used to spin as much as Lacy is spinning 'round now?

Ogletree or Te'o at 17 if both are available? Ogletree is faster and makes more plays behind the line of scrimmage. Though to be honest I really don't want an ILB. We have Timmons and Foote starting and Spencer looked really promising before getting hurt in camp last year.

I thought that as well. He doesn't look nearly as athletic as Mendy though but seems to run harder on a consistent basis.

I don't really get ND's game plan. For some reason they keep going after Dee Milliner who's one of the best CB prospects in the country. You'd think they'd target someone else in the secondary.

Yeah, I'd rather have an OLB with that 1st pick but not sure what will be there.

For some reason I see Ogletree as more risky and boom or bust than Te'o. I just think Te'o is the safer pick but maybe I'm wrong. Time will tell...

Definitely agree on the OLB, it's obviously a much bigger need.

You could be right. I might just be sick of the Te'o overhyping from ESPN all year

Who do you guys realistically want in the draft at this point in time? Obviously a long way to go and a lot can change but just curious.

TE Gavin Escobar. San Diego State junior. Mackey Award semi-finalist. 6-5, 255-pound.

they draft a TE late every year, right?

for the first round? i want an impact defensive player.

Of course the draft positions of guys will change a lot after the combine but I guess I'd like someone from this group right now:

Chance Warmack - G - Alabama
Barkevious Mingo - OLB - LSU
Johnathan Banks - CB - Miss State
Xavier Rhodes - CB - FSU
Dion Jordan - OLB - Oregon (all potential, big boom or bust)

I'm not versed enough in football to evaluate prospects and care about mock drafts, but I want Barkevious Mingo for the name alone.

ND got their ***** beat by a real team tonight. I'm off the ND bandwagon and college football in general.

I fell asleep right before the game started, and I just woke up.

****.


Not happy to hear how Te'o has looked.
