NFL Draft

sorry to say it but i doubt Isaiah is drafted at all. watched him for 4 years and he's not fast.
i wish him the best of luck. i'm surprised though that training with a sprint specialist couldn't
get him under 4.5.

Based on my very few personal interactions with Isaiah, his life after football (whenever that begins) will be a successful one. Impressive young man.

I almost believe stuff like this is fed to fake Twitter journalists for that 1% chance a player falls a spot or two so teams that actually like the players don't have to trade up to make sure they get them.

That, or that Musk ruined Twitter by turning into a social experiment where everyone can pretend to be official with a blue checkmark.

Anyone can buy a blue checkmark for whatever the monthly fee is, no?

If anybody thinks for a nanosecond that having a blue checkmark makes you legit, you may just be a bit gullible. In addition, anyone that thinks that prior to the change in ownership of Twitter/X, it was a bastion of goodness, truth, and well-being...... well, I have no words.... lol. Each individual is solely responsible for their own degree of ignorance. I take ownership for the things I choose to believe.

If someone is dissing on Newton or any of our other guys, I am 100% positive that any NFL GM can pick up the phone and have a chat with Coach B....

It's click farming.

It's click farming.
I am hopeful that at some point in the near future that 'clicks' cease to be a method of measuring/compensating online materials/info..... A 'click' should not men anything (Bots ?!?!?), and the only somewhat true measure of consumption is time spend on the website/article.... I HATE the whole NEXT PAGE/CONTINUE thing that is only there to give damned additional clicks..... makes it worthless.... Perplexing there is no pushback on this method from whomever is shelling out the $$$ base on views.

I don't think the click farmer will make one whit of difference to any NFL team interested in Newton.

The amount of AI-driven content is absolutely scary. Young people have zero clue that most of the content they intake is AI or bot generated and that it is constantly recycled by other bots.

Sadly it's true.

There were overall horrible defensive performances last year where Newton was in the backfield on every snap. Kansas most notably.

College guards had no chance in single coverage against him.
Never seen anything defensively like what he was doing against Wisconsin before his ejection. He set up camp in the backfield. Then he comes back against Minnesota and completely changes the outcome of that game by himself.

It's a really hard decision whether he or Corey Liuget had the best DT season I've ever seen at Illinois.

Newton had more pancakes of helpless individual blockers, Liuget had more Kool-Aid Man blowups of double teams.

Agreed.


They are very similarly sized on the stat sheet but Liuget was an unstoppable force. Newton is more athletic though.

Klatt hit the nail on the head, Johnny's definitely got a lot of Aaron Donald in him.
