    Do you ever wonder why the Saints don't typically have a lot of lsu players...I wonder if its because of they worry the players would get back with old crowd back home?

    It's because they're not the BPA when the Saints select a player. I have no doubt that if OBJ had been available, he would have been a Saint this year. If Hill had dropped further, I could easily see the Saints dropping a pick on him.

    Jarvis Landry excites the Dolphins early
    Dolphins owner Stephen Ross shook the hand of one player coming off the field on Friday: Rookie Jarvis Landry.

    Later, Ross mentioned Landry unsolicited, suggesting the owner is excited about Miami's second round pick before the kid catches even one pass in a game. Maybe he knows something.

    "I think Jarvis Landry is somebody I think everybody is really excited about, speaking to the coaches. I think he’s really going to be somebody that’s going to surprise a lot of people and really bring some excitement to this team,” Ross said.

    Well, if the coaches are telling him to keep an eye on Landry, maybe we should also.

    What does Landry think of his first day of practice?

    Also what Landry has been saying, most of what Cam runs at LSU, the Dolphins are doing much of the same. He has fit in well and looks to be ahead if the game there.

    Panthers’ Trai Turner shines as offensive line displays progress
    By Jonathan Jones

    Few came to see how the offensive line meshed, but Panthers coach Ron Rivera kept an eye on it.

    Carolina’s offensive line rotated several players with the first and second teams, though the Panthers’ first-string line remains static.

    From left to right, Byron Bell, Amini Silatolu, Ryan Kalil, Trai Turner and Nate Chandler got the majority of first-team reps together Friday night, just as they did during June’s three-day minicamp.

    Rivera isn’t necessarily putting much stock into the line’s performance until they get into pads on Sunday.

    “It was tough to tell, but listening to them communicate and talk is important,” Rivera said. “I thought Kalil did a nice job.”

    Kalil, one of the top centers in the league in his eighth year, is the most veteran player on the offensive line. While most eyes were on quarterback Cam Newton and his surgically repaired ankle, Kalil was focused on getting the calls with his younger linemen.

    “I think in these practices you’re looking for ability to pick up the scheme,” Kalil said. “It’s a big playbook, a lot of information is being thrown around early on, so you’re looking at how guys are playing.

    “You don’t really ABC it. We’re getting pretty down-the-line (defensive) looks right out of the gate, so it’s a good way to see how guys adapt and how they work things out on the fly in high-game speed.”

    Of the young guys around him, Kalil said Turner stood out the most. The Panthers drafted Turner out of Louisiana State in the third round of this year’s draft, and Turner turned 21 just last month.

    He’s gotten the majority of reps at right guard since minicamp.

    “He’s so young and he’s doing such a good job,” Kalil said.

    I agree Tap, La'el could be a 1st rounder this year. Hawk could move over to LOT and be a first rounder the next year. The problem if you want to call it one, Hawk will wow them at a combine, when ever he goes out

    I'm telling you every team that took WR before Jarvis will wish they hadn't.
