I’m now confused as to what is being argued

Yeah, I think I misunderstood what you were arguing.

My bad there

Yeah, I took it as you insinuating that UGA under developed Nauta. Nauta would have been drafted appropriately if he had been elite.

Maybe I’m the dumb one.

I’ve always thought he was the best in the business.

Good thing his hit rate is much worse than most.

It appears to me that a lot of Demetric Warren's CB picks are nothing more than him following suit with other mods' picks.

re: 5* TE Arik Gilbert
I was just watching a side-by-side of Arik Gilbert and Darnell Washington running routes - there is no comparision. Gilbert is much faster and more fluid with moves and Change of Direction(COD).

I understand Washington is a few inches taller and 15lbs heavier. Not sure what Gilbert's vert is but DW's only 31". Would much rather have Gilbert - don't get those that try to claim these two are interchangeable - they are not.

Maybe it is because I find most things funny, but I thought that was a joke/sarcasm.

As in, "You agree with me? I always thought you were the smartest of the group."

Could be wrong .

Yeah, I've posted about Gilbert being quicker, more fluid and athletic in our recruiting thread. Their testing numbers are vey close except Gilbert's verticle is better. Bama prefers Gilbert over Washington, in part because they want and need a flex TE/bigWR type more than an in-line TE type. Bama tends to opt more for quick-twitch over size for their WRs combined with a flex TE.

It appears to me that Washington is a better fit for how UGA (Kirby) apparently likes to use TEs vs WRs. Kirby said something to the effect that he genetally prefers his QB to target guys who can do the most after the catch. A big WR like George Pickens fits the bill of being as much, if not more, of a matchup problem and big play threat than most flex tight ends.

It appears Kirby is wanting one in-line type TE (Washington) and one flex type (Gilbert or Theo). Since it also appears UGA is in a very good spot with DW and Gilbert is trending away from UGA and supposedly isn't keen on being on the same team with DW, I suppose UGA will press even harder for Theo. We'll see.

Surge you going to get yourself fired .

That word always makes me think of the Bill Burr skit about the sports commentator ruin his career.

Is it just me or am I the only one that thinks Washington might end up at defensive end before his collegiate career is over? Maybe I'm just reading too much into his measurables but I wonder if who every gets him doesn't ask him to cross train some there to see what he looks like.

Another prediction (this time from Rivals) of Arik to VOLS.

Still got a gnarly feeling UGA may end up with DW and Bama will swoop in and get Arik.

Still also hoping that Neidermeyer will do his magic on DW, especially since we apparently have the last visit with DW.

This season will have a lot to do with our class this year. Hopefully Pruitt can pull 8 or 9 dubs out of his ass.

Aren't both of those the same?

Six of one, half a dozen of the other really. Redundancy is the spice of life.

I’m not betting against Nerdmeyer, especially when it’s a recruit at a position he coaches

Hope playing WR on a team that is irrelevant is worth it. Rather than TE on a championship caliber team. Think about it Arik...
