Re: Alan Branch stress fractures in leg.

I'd bet he slips out of the top 10.

It does stink for him but thank goodness for our Skins that this news got out - I would pass on Branch now - there are too many options with players who have a clean bill of health out there.

Re: Alan Branch has stress fractures in legs

all the teams have known about this. i am guessing that is why he hasn't seemed to be an object of our affection. i guess there is debate about whether he actually has stress fractures but considering the other issues that have been raised this guy is going to end up being a steal for someone in the later half of the 1st round.

Re: Alan Branch has stress fractures in legs

I thought him slipping out of the top ten was like month old news.

One way to look at this is that it completely explains the combine workout. The other, obviously, is that he's damaged goods.

Yes. Thank goodness he didn't appear to be on our radar. Bad news for him, for sure.

Depends on which "MOCK" draft you look at, most all still have him going top 10, up until this point. I think the worst I've seen on any mock is #13

For what it is worth, PFT's, which he supposedly bases on what he is being told by league insiders and not on guessing or personal observation, has him slipping to 32.

Re: Alan Branch has stress fractures in legs

Here's my theory...

Branch's camp is responsible for the Okoye 420 mention. Okoye's camp is responsible for the he-no-walkie mention. As I've always said, two wrongs make a right.
