It's close. Hurst and Nathan Shepherd will be 25 before the season starts. Jordan Akins will be 26. McVay just turned 32.

Glad to see Ian Thomas on that list, I think he’s got big time potential in the pros. Criminally underused in college here at IU.

Wake Forest S Jessie Bates says he met with the Steelers head coach, GM and owner at the NFL Combine.

The Steelers are showing a ton of interest in safeties. Beat writer Jim Wexell reports Ohio State's Damon Webb had an informal meeting with a Steelers position coach, Alabama's Ronnie Harris also had an informal meeting, Stanford's Justin Reid had a "formal" sit down with Mike Tomlin and add Bates' formal meeting to the list.

Lamar Jackson - QB - Cardinals
Walter Football mentions that Lamar Jackson met with the Bills, Bears, Broncos, Dolphins, Giants, Eagles and Steelers during the NFL Scouting Combine.
Jackson (6'3/205) received some of the most mixed reviews of any quarterback -- or player -- at the combine this week. Some came away impressed with his arm strength, others like NFL.com's Bucky Brooks came away concerned about his inaccuracy and footwork. All of the teams listed above outside the Eagles and Bears could use a long-term answer at signal-caller, and one can't help but wonder if Chicago has interest in Jackson as a wide receiver. Because he didn't test athletically at the combine, his pro day later this month is going to be one of the most important of any draft prospect.

I'm not, frankly. I think the last two years have really been a wakeup call for what could be in the middle of the field. McDonald played pretty well, but he's had injury issues that have made him unavailable AND he's all salary this year-- there's no cap hit if they cut him. Jesse was hurt all of last year, but is pretty much shown to be an underneath relief option thusfar. He hasn't been a great blocker but has been decent. Grimble seems to have plateaued.

One thing I have read numerous times about Fitchner is: he LOVES to substitute liberally and rotate skill position players. He enjoys figuring out ways to use different kinds of players and matchups.

My guess is: however many WRs and TEs and RBs are active on gameday, they're all going to be used for something.

So, it's not outrageous to think they could add a 3rd guy or that they could add someone near the top of the draft, even, to take McDonald's job.

I agree, b2b, as much as I like Vance (he hasn't proven he'll stay healthy). I doubt they would cut both he and James, but doing so would save almost $6.25 million on the cap this year without much dead money at all ($52K for James).

Next question is, how much are Trey Burton, AS-J or Cameron Brate gonna demand per year in FA? I like Brate better than Vance actually; underrated athlete, great red zone and very good blocker. What's he gonna cost you think?

Edit: oops, just realized Brate is a RFA, oh well.
