    Agree. I'm sure Eli is being advised well. He made his mark. He probably cannot add value with another bowl. Only risk injury or potentially not show well. On to the combines...

    You're right. He won't get to go offfir a couple hundred yards in an all star game.

    I'm sure he and his agent have their reasons, but the biggest value of the Senior Bowl is the week leading up to it. Practice time and the countless interviews with coaches and organizational people. The game is basically irrelevant in comparison.

    Pretty brutal. But they're brutal on everyone. Fournette, considered one of the best RBs coming out got hammered too.

    Laughable. Eli's going to be a steal for somebody. No doubt.

    They weighed in and did bench press so far. Even though it's probably one of the more pointless combine drills, he put up a solid 15 reps. Real stuff starts tomorrow

    Hud did 25 reps with the 225# Bench Press, BUT can't move like Eli, or catch, or be elusive, or etc.

    That analysis is as much an indictment on how he was developed and coached the last 4 years as anything. That's indicative of our struggles the last few years. The failure to develop the offensive athletes we have...to improve their skills year over year. We essentially used his athletic ability to carry us, hurt his foot, and sent him to the combine not much better developed than we found him. I am pulling for him to overcome that, because he's a warrior.

    I thought it was a pretty honest assessment regarding the interior running ability. But completely missed on several points as well.

    With that busted foot he still outran his ____ poor coaching and god awful offensive line. Dude is a steal of a deal for anyone. I would love for Seattle to pick him and use him properly...but that's just putting him into another coaching & offensive line problem.

    That dude gave his body for the team and kept plugging away. I wonder how they measure heart.

    He would kill it in New England, New Orleans and KC.

    He actually would be a very good fit in NOLA with his receiving ability. He would be a huge upgrade to Cadet & Murphy in the Sproles/ Bush role
