Matt Ryan finally has a "Pro Day" workout and now NFL Scouts and ESPN personnel, (I won't say any names, Todd McShay, Mel Kiper, Chris Mortensen!) are all on his nuts, all pretty much agreeing that Ryan will be a top 8 pick and possible number one. Some say he's a franchise Quarterback.
Well, duh! Where have all these people been the last couple of years? Even if you haven't watched College Football, haven't you seen video of this guy by now? Why does it take a combine or NFL "workout" before these "pro" scouts to realize just how good a certain players are. I mean look at last year. It took the combine for scouts to realize Adrian Petersen was a top ten pick. Even this year with Darren McFadden.
I've lobbied for the Dolphins to take Matt Ryan with the top pick since December. I've watched Mock Drafts for the last few months and have seen Chris Long, Glen Dorsey, Sedrick Ellis projected as the number one pick.
