    First off, that was a horribly written article that honestly made me mad more than anything...I've never seen an analyst tell readers to look through NFL records themselves to get a better list of hip injuries since his list was woefully incomplete. But even on the ones he listed, I question the accuracy since he only looked at future games played. For example, he put Pouncey in the "good" category....despite the guy clearly regressing after the hip injury and not being able to hit in practice. That's not a "good" outcome at all.

    In fact, out of that whole list Frank Gore is the only real success story...and we know Frank Gore simply isn't human. Mare was highly positive as well but he's also a kicker that doesn't take contact- neither relate to what Tua will have to do in the NFL.

    When you look at the worst-case scenarios, however, you see Dennis Pitta had the hip pop out three different times across 4 years and it ultimately ended his career. That's a real possibility with Tua and I think it's enough to make teams pause when considering moving up to draft him. If I were a betting man, I'd bet heavily that he's available at #5 and I believe we pass on him; it's just too much of a gamble that early in the draft. I think the only way we take him is trading back and landing him in the teens.

    All the pre-draft hype and analysis has me thinking that getting Tua at #5 will be a bargain, LOL. Most, add a disclaimer, like if Tua passes medicals, etc., but it kind of has me feeling like Grier is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.

    If they do get him will he be able to start?

    Physically yeah I think he could start if he had to.... He has been throwing for a few weeks now... He is running... and cleared for all football activities.

    The Tua reports today remind me of The Office scene when Kevin gets his medical results and they're negative and Michael thinks that it's bad.

    So is the positive medical report good or bad?
