Default Friday Afternoon Update on Wilkins, Ferrell, Bryant

We wanted to pass along the latest information on Christian Wilkins, Clelin Ferrell and Austin Bryant.

The team finished their first team meeting of the season Friday afternoon.

Wilkins, Bryant and Ferrell were not at the meeting according to one of our sources. They weren't there because "they were still deciding" according to our source.

We have also have confirmed one reason they have not made a decision is due to the fact that they did not receive the grades they thought they would get. Multiple sources confirmed to us that all three players received second-round grades from the NFL Draft Advisory Board.

We will continue to monitor this situation closely.

2nd round???? Well dang. I guess I get Big Juicy, his year didn't pop, but his career...my gosh.

Cle and Austin had monster years. I just don't get it....just like Trubisky going before Watson. Makes no damn sense to me

Not a good sign at all. Best of luck on whichever way they choose! They'll be fine either way!

Second round grades for Wilkins and Ferrell? You gotta be kidding me! Hope that pisses them off and they come back to prove something.

2nd round grades mean you could easily fall to 3rd or 4th round. you may be 2nd round talent, but are not going to be drafted until those graded above you are. All depends on how many teams need DL.

I think two goes and one stay.. Most likely Bryant stays.. Second round grades for those three are asinine and absurd

It is all the qbs coming out or are graduating that is causing the issue. Next year, they won't have all that. I believe bama's top 2 rbs are also in the mix. Unless someone is wanting DL in a serious fashion, they will be going offense on their top picks or hoping to get the DL in the second selection. Cuts into the money for sure. Just think what it does to our WRs coming out and not being quite the best in the nation.

The NFL people making that call have been right 85% of the time since 2010 when evaluating Juniors leaving early.

All of the media draft guys (Kiper, Matt Miller, etc) have Cle and Wilkins in their top 20 overall players. They're usually pretty close on what actually happens.

A lot will depend on the numbers they put up at combine also. Could easily shoot them into round 1 or drop them into later rounds.
