I've been busy monitoring the combine and planning for the draft.
Thought it might interest you to know Adenjii has been mentioned as a possible pickup by Seattle.
I seriously doubt if that happens, but he is at least a subject of discussion.
Also some talk of getting Hariis in FA. Imagine that...McDougald, Harris, and Addenjii all from Kansas in Seattle together. That would be a cool story. It will never happen, but cool story anyway.

Yeah, heard he had a really good showing at the combine. Many are saying he's a possible 2nd rounder now.

I'm pretty sure there are a bunch of NFL FAs who will be paying very close attention to what happens in the draft as that could have a dramatic effect on positional market value. This year's class is generally considered to be somewhat weak in terms of DE/Edge types, thus the emergence of players like Adenjii.

Adeniji had a decent showing and should represent well. The teams I've seen his name mentioned with most often have been Arizona and Cleveland and recently Tampa Bay. I've also heard he is likely to be moved inside to guard.

I also see Azur Kamara had some bright spots and dim spots at the combine. He came to football so late, but someone will at least give him a FA contract as a development project.

Since we're talking pros, I wanted to include this link on Steven Sims. He had a nice showing on a bad team that often had a rookie QB and three rookie WRs on the field at the same time.

You got it. Simms had a great year in Wash. We were taking note of that several weeks ago. Looks to me like hes set up for a pretty nice NFL career.

Adenigi attracting more and more attention as draft day approaches. Seems likely he will find a landing spot before it's over. I'm having a hard time figuring out where he gets picked, but there is evidence a number of teams have taken note of him.

Most of the mock I'm seeing have Adeniji being taken in the top 150. Two reputable sites even have him going to Seattle! That kinda took me by surprise. Another site has him going to Denver.
I also saw a site projecting Kamara(?) getting picked but I forget now by which team. It was a late pick and those are very hard to handicap. As if most after top 15 aren't...

Hakeem Draft value

He is a good athlete who is a smooth mover and quick on his feet. Adeniji could be a really good fit at guard in a zone-blocking system. He should improve his strength for the NFL, which was apparent at the Senior Bowl. With his arm length, Adeniji should probably move inside to guard.

Adeniji is a skilled pass protector who has some athleticism and movement skills. Team sources say he is a good athlete with quick feet but is shorter than ideal for a left tackle.

FIrst pick of Rnd 6 (180 overall).
I'd think a disappointment in position and destination, but just getting picked is a pretty big deal.
Be glad when this is done. This year it's been an exercise in frustration.

Getting drafted is a good thing. I think in the present situation and not knowing what training camps will look like, if they happen at all, will make this a very difficult year for free agents to have a chance to make an impression.
