8. Atlanta Falcons — Nebraska OLB-DE Randy Gregory
The Falcons' free-agent edge signings have been anything but edgy. Brooks Reed? Please. Give us Gregory, the mantis-like rusher who doesn’t play as fast as you’d think a 235-pounder would, and his tape can be inconsistent, but his upside is undeniable.

 

 

This guy has Gregory at #8. It's the lowest I've seen in any of the mock drafts.

Have a feeling testing positive for pot at the combine is going to drop him well below 8!

No way this changes much. Too much potential

It means he enters the league already in the substance abuce program, he will for sure fall out of the top 10

Yup. He got his one pass, now he toes the line. This is only news to the public, surprised it wasn't leaked sooner, being able to squash this with teams before media jumps the story allows him to control the issue. Good coaching.

Didn't realize he tested positive for weed. How did I miss this? (Maybe it was the weed. LOL)

If weed gets him knocked out of the top 10, how is Jamies Winston the unanimous #1 pick by Mock Drafts?

Bad timing. Also not a QB.

He's an elite pass rusher, which is the next best thing.

If it knocks him out of the top 10, whoever gets him at a steal gets the last laugh

 

...unless he fails any more drug tests. Randy might be giggling then, but not the franchise stuck with him.

 

I think the owners and General Managers are tired of wasting draft picks on the likes of Johnny Manziel, Josh Gordon, and Justin Blackmon.

 

Gregory will go a lot lower and a lot cheaper, but that doesn't necessarily make him a bargain.

Nope.

 

We are talking about suspensions. Dog fighters, wife beaters, kid beaters, cocaine users, steroid users, and potheads all are excluded from playing in the NFL while pursuing their pastime of choice. You might perceive a difference between all of these, but they equally determine who plays and who doesn't.

 

One can't help his team if he can't step foot on the field.

Agreed there. Anyone taking Winston in the first round is insane. That dude is a Ryan Leaf type head case.

The cowboys would take him. Look at that Jones boy's track record. A little pot is nothing to Jerry.

 

I hope that Jerrah trades his first round pick to the Cleveland Browns for Johnny Manziel...

 

...and then I'll watch for the reddish glow on the Southern horizon that will signal the fireball enveloping Austin, College Station, Waco, Dallas, and Houston.

Remember defensive line is a strong position in this year's draft. I think he falls out of the top ten. I say between 13-15. I did say the Browns, but after Josh Gordan and Manziel...

I find it to be an absolute joke that people are talking about Gregory's draft status falling in light of his failed drug tests. Some "experts" have him dropping to the mid to low 1st round and some even have him in the 2nd round.

 

All the while, Dorial Green-Beckham, who has had numerous issues with substance abuse and law breaking and didn't even play last year, is projected to go in the mid 1st round.

 

 

These people are f'ing stupid

Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston dropped from late 1st rounder to the 3rd round because he tested positive. Suggesting that RG is going to fall out of the top 5-10 isn't crazy talk. From his recent history and own admissions that this is his third failed test I'm not sure why anyone would potentially waste a top 10 pick on the guy.

 

It's worked out for the Chiefs and Justin Houston but whoever picks up RG might not be so lucky.

Apparently it was in addition to his work ethic according to this article. But then, that may not bode well for Gregory either.

I just think it has more to do with teams trying to psych each other out on players. Because if Jamies Winston, Todd Gurley, and Dorial Green-Beckham are worthy of 1st round status, so is RG.

His past indicates major immaturity problems. A long history of bad decisions about his playing status. Has he grown up in the last 6 moths? Quite possible.

 

Personally after watching him the last year or so, I am not that impressed. He is quick, but undersized. He will run into quick players in the NFL that are not undersized or less athletic.

 

I know he was injured a lot while at Nebraska, but we never played a NFL schedule either. I personally would not use a first round selection on him, one because he does not deserve it from past performance, and to send him a message that he needs to grasp this opportunity and take full advantage of it. I would be very worried about his apparent taking plays off, lack of desire to see the field, questionable taking himself out of the game. Especially after just signing a major contract. I wonder how he will play midway through.

 

For him and his family, I hope he makes it, but of all that have left here with really high expectations, I see him the least likely to succeed. The drive, motivation is there for one reason and one reason only, money. He gets it, I doubt he will ever turn into the player he has the talent to be.

 

Hope I am wrong on that.

 

Illegal has a meaning. Not to be confused with what you or I think is okay. I have seen what MJ can do to people at the worst time possible, when you are counting on them.

 

One of my friends, at age 70 still lights up nearly every single day. His eyes are going, his hearing is gone, he has no drive to do anything. Never got into heavy drugs because of it, but it took his drive away to be the best he could be.

Some very talented people know that everyone is expecting them to "be the best they can be" and they really hate that. At some level, they know they're going to disappoint everybody, so they start sabotaging themselves. The actual drug doesn't matter. They can do it without any drug, too.

 

Sometimes the decision to check out is a choice. The marijuana didn't take the drive away, it just made the doing nothing part more palatable, and the food taste better.

 

As mentioned, plenty of successful people smoked pot until they decided not too, and some manage to remain successful while still partaking.

I dealt with it during Viet Nam. I saw the worst part of it, and know it cost people their lives. He started when he was in combat, took his mind off of things are his comments. I never tried it, never smoked or drank, so I have a different opinion of things than most. See no need for any of it, a crutch, a way out.

 

And I do not agree that is becoming legal because of its betterment of society. It is being legalized for the tax dollars it will raise. Pay to play.

Randy Gregory

Combine comparison: Barkevious Mingo, Jadeveon Clowney

Gregory might not project as a defensive end due to his lean frame, but 13.5 of his 17.5 sacks the last two seasons came when he lined up in a 3-point or a 4-point stance (with one or both hands on the ground), rather than standing up.

He had a burst off the line of scrimmage, averaging 2.77 seconds from snap to contact. Of the players ranked in the top 15 at each of the four front-seven positions, that ranked fifth among 23 players with at least four first-contact sacks (excluding coverage sacks).
