Informative bio on Cole Strange with some cool stories.
A snippet.





I benched 300 in 8th grade (I was 13)...and I was ALWAYS behind Chris Kuka. I could crank out 60 straight dips when he was over 75. Eh...that isn't that impressive. Also, my younger brudduh was stronger than I ever was.

Anyone hear the rumor, " Pats wanted Devin Lloyd at 29 after trading down from 21"?

Think it was Ryan Leaf that said he had solid Intel on the subject.

He has contacts .
On the Patriots? There's a very short list of media that has contacts on the Patriots, and I would be absolutely stunned if Ryan Leaf were one of them.

I listened to a podcast with Greg Cosell the other day and he mentioned that, according to his film study, he felt Lloyd was a free-lancer
who didn't show a lot of discipline at Utah and suggested that to be a possible reason why the Pats might not have wanted to take
a guy like Lloyd with a high pick. Which is more plausible than Ryan Leaf knowing anything about our draft plans.

Of course we'll never know for sure, but, if true, it wouldn't have been the first time Bill skipped over a guy who was a star in college because he
made splash plays at the expense of his team's overall D.

I was thinking any leak would be via the Chiefs. Have heard a lot of stories about how BB and Andy Reid are close and have no issues making trades. Some people claim they have made late round trades just for fun. Obviously KC was involved in that 1st round trade. Anyway once any info like that is out there it can travel.
The Jaquars traded up in front of the Pats to select Lloyd.

It's sometimes interesting the players that he (BB) picks up via unsigned, undrafted, injured before, whatnot...
