    DL Tuli Tuipulotu, USC
    Big Ronnie Bell fan. Does a lot of things well. Solid punt returner too.

    Adebawore was a good player in the Big Ten. Another inside DL from the Big Ten is Keeanu Benton from Wisconsin. Really good at bringing pressure inside.

    A couple of others that I think are interesting…

    WR/PR Tank Dell from Houston… super productive but really thin. Fun to watch.

    DE/LB Ivan Pace, UC. Might be a tweezer but he was really productive at UC. I didn’t think he looked that quick in games but in the Senior Bowl practices he was basically unblockable in drills vs RBs in pass pro. Looked really quick.

    Another impressive guy - South Carolina CB Darius Rush. Runs really well, great size. Definitely looks the part but I haven’t watched much.

    One other thing - T Dawand Jones, after a great first day… sounds like he ghosted the rest of the Sr. Bowl. Both Brugler and Zerkein on the Athletic pod were talking about it. Strange.

    Dawand Jones self-reported a possible concussion. That's why he hasn't been around since Day 1.

    Any Samoans for me to get excited about yet?



    …Peko would have been a terrific culture fit on this team

    OK thanks - saw later that it was an "undisclosed" injury. The draft weenies were saying that he did really well on day one, but the guys he was going against were kinda playing into his hands, trying to get upfield with outside moves, which is what he's best at, with his absurd length. They were saying that he's a bit still and doesn't handle counters well, and they were hoping to see how the rest of the week went for him.

    Cool. I want him!

    Right now it feels like Tuli is going to fall into that too early for 1st rounder but too late for 2nd rounder situations. But I agree from what I've seen I like and he fits a need.

    man, this TE class is ridiculous.

    If they come out of this draft with any of the following:

    Michale Mayer
    Luke Musgrave
    Payne Durham
    Sam LaPorta

    It's a very good class. A lot of good RBs, too, which plays out well for the Bengals. Hard to find all-around TEs but Mayer and Musgrave seem to fit that. LaPorta is a little hard to evaluate because Iowa QB play was atrocious, but there's a lot to like about what he brings to the table.
