It's almost like a little slice of our own reality TV show- as if people should care about every little thing we think or did that day. For many, twitter is a tool for attention seeking. There are exceptions. Some twitter handles are hilarious, others informative (twitter has been a revelation in sports reporting), and if you are ACTUALLY a celebrity it's nice because it gives average joes like you or me a chance to send a message that they will actually hear.
I hate the twitter format. Twitter's format is unnatural, counter-intuitive, difficult to follow. Most tweets are responses and you always have to click again to read the thing it was responding to, and it takes a lot of work just to follow a very quick exchange that is often intellectual empty calories in the first place.
For all those reasons, I only visit twitter as a last resort (mainly it's paragraph 2 that keeps me away), and the only way I could see myself opening a twitter account would be to social network or to promote my family business or future website.
Bravo! Bravo! However, I do look at who makes a post before I initially click on it and yours (as well as Scotts and Rob's) is one of the names that makes me click automatically. Having said that, twitter is something that people grow in to after earning a certain amount of notoriety, and more importantly, cultivating trust in some higher up sources. Then you have to regulate what you put out there so that it keeps people coming back, never want to over do it. I do foresee a time when Kip will have a twitter account and it will be because it's worth watching.
Back to the OP
That guy is certainly a man among boys there, I wonder how he would do against better competition? He looks very powerful, shoving two guys backwards at once. But he also looks very stiff. He was flat-backed in his stance and I can't remember what that is supposed to mean. Something about the difference between a knee-bender and a waist-bender I think.
Looks like a physical freak for the practice squad but a long way from playing ability.
Kip, I think this is spot on:
"There will be a lot of 1st round type players that will fall into the late 2nd, I think in particular Kawann Short
is a player to keep an eye on.
Another admission- I think the whole "15 players with 1st round grades" refrain that's making the rounds... it's complete bullshit*.
Guys like Tyler Eifert, DeAndre Hopkins, Ryan Swope, Eddie Lacy, Datone Jones, Tavon Austin, Jonathan Banks, Cordarrelle Patterson, Menelik Watson, etc are fantastic prospects and they aren't likely on that 1st round grade list"
I would hope that PC&JS would trade up for Kawaan Short. He's getting a bad rap and now a lot of boards have put Sylvester Williams, John Hankins, John Jenkins and Jesse Williams ahead of him, making him the 8th DT on the board! I love Kawaan and if we got him in the 2nd, I wouldn't care who else we got, well except for kicker Dustin Hopkins and my pet project Joe Vellano http://www.draftinsider.net/rankings/2013/DT
Edit: AND Jordan Rodgers. Watched him on Game Changers the other day and love him even more.
