Austin Blythe. Center. Iowa. 6'2" 290#. On my ignore list. Too small. But I kept seeing his name being mentioned.

I finally looked at some videos on him last night and it was shocking. Austin is thick, stout, and fundamentally sound. He can move ok and appears to be a smart, competitive pivotman. Can we get him in round 6 ?

290 is not too small for a young prospect. Just needs to get the playing weight up a bit more. Hardwick was talking in enormous amounts of calories daily just to get to and maintain 290lbs. Dude walks around like 230lbs right now.

True Guru. Check the vid. This guy is thick. NFL playing weight ~305#. And Austin can go Gumby on ya.

My goal is to draft a starting center as low as we can get away with. Ryan Kelly can now be found late round one in mocks, because of his recent performances. But centers are just not overdrafted.

Big roll of the dice waiting until round six to solve one of the bigger issues facing the o-line.......

I was concerned that would happen. Kinda wishing the centers don't get picked until late 2nd round.

But seriously, my netminder buddy, we can solve this in the late rounds.

I consider the middle of our offensive line to be the biggest problem we have, personnel wise.

The Cleveland Browns matched an offer sheet made to C Alex Mack by the Jacksonville Jaguars on April 11, 2014. The new five year contract is with $42 million, with $18 million fully guaranteed upon signing. The guaranteed portion of the contract is his 2014 and 2015 base salaries. His $8 million 2016 salary is guaranteed for injury only and becomes fully guaranteed if Mack opts to not void the 2016 through 2018 years of the contract. In 2017 and 2018 Mack has roster bonuses worth $2 million each that are due on the 5th day of the League Year. Base salaries are $10,000,00(2014), $8,000,000(2015), $8,000,000(2016), $6,000,000(2017), and $6,000,000(2018).

He says that the only reason he'd leave is to go to a winning program - which isn't the Chargers. http://www.foxsports.com/nfl/story/c...portant-122415
TT said he has a 4 th rd pick he does not need.

2b. Taylor Moton G/RT
3. Isaiah Ford WR
