In a humungous gear-shift you wont hear Talor talking up guys he loves...  no, no you still will.   But in this double episode you'll hear him talk down a bunch of folks who he thinks will not return your investment at the draft. Some players look to overproduce but not these guys. Talor isn't saying he doesn't like these players, he just doesn't like how early you'd have to draft them given what he thinks you'll get back from them.    It is fun trashing a few guys but of course there is a bunch of talking up alternatives, cos Tay gonna do what Tay do best This is Part 1 of a 2 part series.
