  • I am so excited that James Franklin is getting a chance to play in the NFL. What a great human being, he just needs to stay healthy.

    • Glad you said that. I hope he gets a chance to play his way and has QB partners to cover each other, so they can all show us their own unique talent at this pivotal positon. Franklin learned the hard way to carry the weight of the right decision, while Josey, and Washington sometimes took the load off his shoulders to secure victory. What a great unique Missouri team this was, a very special group of young men all over the roster. Thanks Tigers and SEC for an amazing year of football

  • Also for UGA-Blake Sailors is trying out for the Redskins and Dallas Lee is trying out for the Falcons.

  • According to Geoff Collins twitter account Deonte Skinner got on with the New England Pats

  • Atta boy Emmanuel! Can’t wait to see him play for the Rams.

  • Several of these guys will be starters or big time contributors one day IF they can stay healthy.

  • Also just for fun, former UGA RB Isaiah Crowell is trying out for the Cleveland Browns.

  • Strange , the Browns got a STEAL with a bigger, tougher , more durable QB with better QB ratings and W – L record over the last 2 years & from the same conference as j.glassnuts, beat (at thetime) #5Missouri and had the same record as Missouri yet lost the tiebreaker because of the 1st game of the season road loss to UGA . Wound up #4 in the final season polls, & who I have a sneaking suspicion will usurp Lil jonny, as Cleveland’s QB. The worst case of I’ve ever seen in 37-38 years of understanding football. & the most sad case of media injustice EVER , I’m talking about Conner Shaw. He missed 1 game in his final 2 years (which Dylan Thomson still won in clem’s sons dead valley) .
    Shaw finished his final 2 years as an SEC starter with a 21-4 record (NEVER lost a home game) has been wrongfully regarded as not being an accurate passer yet threw only ONE interception last year (on the road) as he rolled left and tossed a 50-50 pass in a high scoring (? 3 point?) game . The INT was a great play by the defender!
    I feel Lil jonny flatballs- can hear Shaw’s QB rating and causing Lil jonny some sleepless nights in Cleveland! If the power that be in Cleveland aren’t afraid to make the right choice and not scared to sacrifice jersey sales untill the fans see the steal they got , he will rightfully be penciled in as the STARTER!!!
