    Yeah... this could be a pretty special line if things work out.

    he's playing 2 tech if Paul Pas has anything to say about it.


    I'm patting myself on the back w/this one, I said they were going to be more interested in NT b/c they have Ratty/Houston/Collins as 3 tech. Eat my smug bitches

    So.. this is what I gathered from various sources.

    He entered the draft early (he's a sophmore) because his mom hurt his back and wants to help and he played in the SEC with good talent week in and week out. People who watched a lot of LSU games said he stood out on the field. I don't buy too much in the already discussed 2015 draft, but for what it's worth; been hearing he would be projected as a 1st rounder.

    Ego's quotes, "I just got the perfect opportunity with the perfect team. I feel like I have a lot of upside. I have to improve on my pass rush (he's been talking to Paul P and both are excited).

    Says Ego on the critics... "Watch out for me. That's all I can say".

    Bit of a reach with big upside. I like the pick.

    I know, but that's just the starters. In all honesty I think the starting line well could be "Allen/Ratliff/Houston/Young" on pass downs

    That's what I like to hear, come in here and grind. I'm excited to see what this defense looks like when healthy on the field.

    Too many quality RB's in the NFC NORTH ... Egor has got to stop them all.

    Man if this puppy can do that ...does look to have the killer instinct. :1stprize:

    I remember Emery saying something last year about Kyle's short college career. He said he wasn't really concerned about the low numbers of games played because the growth from his first to his last game was off the charts. While Ego's career was longer and even if it's all BS already making 2015 mocks, there are some that have projected him as a 1st rounder in the 2015 draft . I trust that Emery did his research and got to know him as a person to make that pick. Screw some critics; we should all get behind him and support him while he works hard and develops.

    I hoping he can; he knows this is a perfect opportunity, and he wants coaching. I'm rooting for him.

    Dear Paul,

    Ego is your first assignment. Don't F this up.

    Plus I love the connections Emery seems to always have in place.. there's a man on the inside who knows these people. Kromer with Bushrod for example. Now Paul P with Ego.

    The Ego pick reminded me so much of the Kyle Long pick. Emery sees the potential in these guys, and is willing to spend high picks on young projects with sky-high ceilings. I love it. These are guys who will ultimately pay dividends for many years to come. We just have to be willing to put up with a bit of a learning curve (like with Kyle, who looked pretty rough at times, and brilliant at other times his first season).
