  1. I still think John Nelson might go sooner. Good left backs are hard to find and he is one who got this far without being a big brute, but by playing with intelligence and skill.

    Also happy to see Sean McSherry is up to #47, he was one of those invited off the alternates list so he probably started well off the radar. That likely means he saw a little bit of time in the scrimmages and impressed those who watched. Good luck to him.
