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

    On CST right now.... 1997 UF vs LSU. Off the top of my head..

    Alan Faneca
    Kevin Faulk
    Anthony McFarland
    Larry Foster
    my hometown boy Kenny Mixon
    Cecil Collins
    Mark Roman
    Chuck Wiley

    May be others I'm missing that played in the NFL as well I'm not remembering.


    One more thing, Herb Tyler shows you how to run the option to the short side of the field. Cedric Donaldson looked like Mo Claiborne in this game, and Wade Richey still sucks.

    OBJ already in hot water up at Giants camp. That is 2 LSU WR's they have drafted and both did a nice job of getting under Coughlin's skin early. He is a grumpy old bastard anyway but wtf?

    @LSUDad got anything?

    Caught on this one yesterday...

    Odell Beckham Jr. visited doctors Monday for tests on his nagging hamstring injury. Beckham has missed a week of on-the-field work since injuring the muscle on the first practice of training camp last Tuesday. He also missed the majority of the full team workouts in the spring with the injury.

    The first-round pick had spent the last several practices watching from the sideline or working on catching passes from a machine. On Monday, though, he was not on or near the practice field.

    "They had some treatments," Tom Coughlin said on Monday, pointing to the team's locker room. "They went over to the doctor."

    An MRI is the most likely test that doctors will use to determine the severity of the injury and get a better idea of how long Beckham will remain sidelined. Coughlin has already voiced strong frustration over the injury.

    "It's more than that," Coughlin said after Sunday's practice when asked if it is disappointing not having Beckham. "We're trying to put a team together. We saw too much of that in the spring . . . He actually looks pretty good out there moving around. We just hope it's a real short period of time."

    LSU has 3 Wr's on the Giants teams. Rueben Randle and Trindon Holliday are the other two.

    LSU has been elite for some time in producing NFL talent and I love seeing that.

    This will continue for a long time, too much talent development, too much seeing a player that hasn't topped out in high school. NFL teams really like the Tiger players coming out.

    A little Blue talk....


    Keep an eye on rookie running back Alfred Blue. He has impressed so far. If he can handle the blitz pickups, Blue has a chance to take some carries from Arian Foster. He also has soft hands and does a nice job out of the backfield. He's a tall back at 6-2, and would be even taller but he's a bit bow-legged. I think he might beat out veteran Andre Brown for the backup job.

    Alfred Blue did some nice things on Saturday. He made one catch, in particular, that was impressive. Bill O’Brien wants his running backs to be able to catch the football and Blue showed off his hands, at one point fully extending to grab an errant throw. The more impressive Blue looks, the less the Texans will need Andre Brown, the veteran of the backups. Where we’ll really want to see Blue is when the team puts on full pads and has some live sessions. If he can block, he might win that backup job away from Brown.


    Got an invite to make a Texans practice later in the week.

    The Browns waived offensive tackle Chris Faulk and kicker/punter Jake Rogers on Monday, according to the NFL’s transactions.

    The move leaves the Browns with 88 players, two short of the 90-player limit.

    The 24-year-old Faulk spent the 2013 season on injured reserve with Cleveland after knee surgery. Faulk suffered a torn ACL and MCL at LSU in 2012

    Not sure he would be taller, but the bowleggedness is associated w/being faster. This is well known in the world of Orthopedics. I couldn't easily find a medical reference, but the following describes why:

    He maybe a bit taller if his legs were not bowed... Pigeon toes is a different thing though...
