Let’s talk a little bit about Antonio Gibson. A thread.— John Hesterman (@john_hesterman) April 20, 2021
Despite concerns about his usage as an RB in college, Gibson finished his rookie season with 170 carries for 795 yards and 11 touchdowns and tacked on 36 receptions for 247 receiving yards.
Bryce Love is gone and McKissic will end up less targeted than he was last season with more reliable QB play and less panic dump offs.— John Hesterman (@john_hesterman) April 20, 2021
Conclusion, Gibson has serious upside potential that does not seem to be getting enough conversation.

From the time Harbaugh showed up in SF, until retiring today — Alex Smith teams went 80-36-1 with him as the starting QB— John Middlekauff (@JohnMiddlekauff) April 20, 2021

Jordan Reed had perhaps the best hands I've ever seen from a tight end, had a natural ability to go Beast Mode at the catch point. pic.twitter.com/84HrBgPPDc— Johnny Kinsley (Tony Romo Hive CEO) (@Brickwallblitz) April 20, 2021
Kind of been swept in the news cycle, the #WashingtonFootball team has used their full allotment of individual Zoom sessions on Asante Samuel Jr. too. I believe 9 interactions.— George Carmi (@Gcarmi21) April 21, 2021
This happened a few weeks ago. https://t.co/4YKO7u4FH6
NFL teams didn't get athletic testing numbers from the Indy medical combine earlier this month, but they did get measurements. And that meant, finally, they got Alabama WR DeVonta Smith on a scale.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 21, 2021
Per sources, the Heisman winner checked in at a 6-foot-0.2 and 166 pounds.
Beyond DeVonta Smith, other notables from Indy ...— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 21, 2021
• Louisville WR Tutu Atwell was 5-8, 149 (!) pounds.
• Tulsa LB Zaven Collins (6-4) was up 11 pounds from his Pro Day to 270.
• BYU QB Zach Wilson was 6-2, 210 pounds.
• Pitt DL Jaylen Twyman (6-1) was up to 319 pounds.
I wonder how much DeVonta Smith weighed when he had 345 yards and 6 TDs in the College Football Playoffs last year?— Eliot Shorr-Parks (@EliotShorrParks) April 21, 2021
Cliff Branch was the best WR in the NFL for a few years in a row at 5'11, 170 in an era where DBs could mug wide receivers. https://t.co/JFuNwSV6lg— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) April 21, 2021
I'll tell you what, seeing people smarter than me like the same guys that I do does wonders to help with my imposter syndrome. Joe Tryon is a monster.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) April 21, 2021
Absolute worst case scenario, I think he goes 32 to the Bucs, but likely will go much earlier than that. https://t.co/5fTlAXANRH
The classical music concert my wife and I were supposed to attend tonight got postponed until next Thursday night. I have a feeling I have a scheduling conflict, but I can't quite put my finger on it.— Mike Tanier (@MikeTanier) April 20, 2021
OSU QB Justin Fields has confirmed to NFL teams during the pre-draft process that he is managing epilepsy – a neurological disorder that can cause seizures, per me and @TomPelissero. It has not affected football & doctors believe he’ll outgrow it as his other family members have.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 21, 2021
There are 16 WRs that weighed in at 170 pounds or less at the combine since 2000. Here's the top guys sorted by career AV. DeSean Jackson is best case scenario, who ran a 4.35. I like Smith a lot, and think he will be a good pro, but it would be a bit unprecedented. pic.twitter.com/lDAWRHuEjm— Evan Lazar (@ezlazar) April 21, 2021
I like this policy as applied to social media, but I really miss footage of players in the green room taking calls from the teams that draft them. That I think is far more compelling than watching the commissioner announce the pick. https://t.co/YgPT68Xzms— Nick Korte (@nickkorte) April 21, 2021
Nick Sirianni won't name Jalen Hurts the Eagles starting QB.— Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) April 21, 2021
"To name a starter at this particular time... we've been working with these guys for two days."
Sirianni says he wants competition at every position.
NFL source on the fourth-and-15 alternative to the onside kick that's up (again) for possible approval today by the owners: "I can't see the fourth-and-15 passing." It's still too gimmicky for some owners and probably is headed to being discarded again.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) April 21, 2021
The "booth umpire" (or sky judge) proposal by the Ravens was withdrawn, source confirms. So the only significant replay change that could come today would be if the owners ratify the proposal to expand the duties of the replay assistant to consult with the on-field officials.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) April 21, 2021
NFL owners ratified the Chiefs' proposal to expand the jersey-number options for players at certain positions, source says. Running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, defensive backs and linebackers will be allowed to wear single-digit jersey numbers.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) April 21, 2021
Philly gets a lot of practice with 4th and 15’s so that wouldn’t be fair to the rest of the league— Jody O’Donnell (@jodyobx) April 21, 2021
Also ...— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 21, 2021
• Chicago’s extra point proposal passed.
• The Rams’ double forward-pass rule passed.
• All overtime rules proposals failed.
The NFL wrote in a memo to teams today that the NFLPA "relying on statistics purporting to show that the lack of an offseason program in 2020 led to significantly decreased injury rates during the 2020 season" is "inaccurate and misleading."— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) April 21, 2021
Teams with at least 60% of their roster being "homegrown" players:— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) April 21, 2021
Teams with a low number of homegrown players— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) April 21, 2021
Football Team- 43%
That Texans number is ridiculous.
A player who hasn't shown that he can be among the best 5% of his position leaves his original draft team after 5 years more often not.— Moo (@PFF_Moo) April 21, 2021
Teams may think of their top draft picks like this and that's why I created another draft curve.https://t.co/KsXiN298QP

I just received a phone call from a North Dakota number that I would never normally answer but Trey Lance is a thing so I did. Spam, of course. My car is in fact covered by insurance. Oh, man do I need this draft over with. Or a nap.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) April 21, 2021
Someone in our player personnel department once proudly told me upon returning from the combine that he asked a draft prospect “if you were a vegetable, what kind of vegetable would you be” - I just stared at him and added in my head the cost to us of sending him to the Combine. https://t.co/PZyiwHec1B— Amy Trask (@AmyTrask) April 21, 2021
