I've heard a bunch of positive blurbs on Eli from practice. Hope the teams are noticing.
Houston radio guy Lance Zierlein's response to me on Eli. He is an NFL.com draft guy and I believe very good at what he does.
"Doesn't break too many tackles and I was really disappointed by his tape this year. He's got some explosive athleticism, but late rounder."
The thing of it is, though, is that's where he would've gone last year had he come out early. So I hope he doesn't regret coming back for his senior year. He got his degree and the team got through some real hurdles together. Some of them self-made, but it speaks to the leadership of guys like he, Riles, and Peters that the team didn't totally collapse in on itself.
"Late rounder" I love McGuire but he should be a late rounder
Call me a homer, but I would love to see Drew throw the ball to Eli on 3rd down wheel routes and screens.
James Willis was one the coaches who were fired.
Just a bump reminding everyone that this game starts at 2 PM today on the NFL Network.
