much, but the picture of Tomlinson in the Duggan article is pretty amazing. That guy is huge - and looks to be "cut" not a blubber belly 315 lber.

Also, Engram looks more WR than TE in build. I have not seen a picture of him next to Marshall, but their numbers appear to be close to the same in height and weight.
Good stuff from Duggan and Patti.

If you haven't seen this piece on Tomlinson before, enjoy. He's another easy guy to root for.
Landon Collins go #28 on NFL ranking list

Congrats to him to go so friggin' high in just his second year.

Looking forward to top 20 next year...
I am beginning to think Owa Odighizuwa is Tyler Durden  
bigblue1124 : 6/13/2017 8:49 am : link
Absolutely no one other than BBI speaks of the guy. In Patti’s article winners and loser so far she points out that fact. And she is the only one I have seen even comment on it.

Hope the kid is ok but a very weird situation with him to say the least.
Kratch's 90-man Roster Review - some thoughts  
Jimmy Googs : 6/13/2017 9:09 am : link
Locks (31):
Does Herzlich really need to be a lock? A non-position player who certainly didn't light it up on Specials last year, and Skinner played better in far less snaps.

Safe For Nows (12):
Darkwa and Thomas seem to be more "Bubble guys" to me. And I wish Andrew Adams was Bubble as well but just my preference.

On the Bubble (27):
3 backup Cornerbacks - Blake, Deayon and Hunter. One of this crew damn well better move up a rung quickly or we need to find a veteran. To me, a problem because you know a starter can easily go down here and we don't have Safeties that can fill in at Corner.
