"NFL Draft 2014 Preview"


  

          

casual opinions based on what I've seen to this point. players improve and decline, obviously, so these are hardly definitive.

I've mostly watched him on a surface level, so I can't say much now, but everything checks out at a glance. He's comfortable under center, shotgun and pistol. Great at play-action; he makes a superb hand-off fake and finds targets quickly after turning his back. High, tight release with zip. Feels pressure and doesn't sack himself, while also throwing well on the move.

More dissection to come, but he did miss some downfield throws in games I watched.

He's got size and a decent enough arm, but right now he's a DTLG quarterback. His college performances (and "winner's mentality") are useless to me, because he has advantages playing for Alabama that no NFL team could ever duplicate in the cap era.

Every single one of his 2012 linemen will play in the league (three being first-rounders), he's played with a pair of running backs who have and will go in the top ten (Richardson and Yeldon), plus he's got a Marqise Lee clone (Amari Cooper) to throw to. Oh, and a defense that basically guarantees victory if he can put up 17 points.

I think his pocket presence is questionable -- he holds the ball way too long -- and all his reads are elementary school, because defenses play to stop Alabama's run game. Hitting play-action passes on 2nd and 4 is easy for anybody. And the thing is, he misses those too. Deep passes are often short. His LSU performance last season was abysmal; they should've won that game by two touchdowns (instead he got credit for pulling a Ben Roethlisberger special).

In response to Reply # 14


  

          

he's getting some dumb advice. that week of practice is made for guys like him to win some team over, and if he thinks he's a Luck-echelon talent who can skip it without penalty, he should watch his own tape more closely. or ask Geno Smith how it felt in in the waiting room.

Good arm made better by his very quick release. He whistles the ball into tight spots. Goes through progressions well, and is not afraid of the check down. Solid in the pocket, although his feet can get happy and he'll start dancing around ghosts. I hate when he takes off, because he seems perpetually conflicted on whether to run, throw, slide or dive headfirst. It results in a lot of awkward scrambles, which are dangerous for his own sake.

Finished strong last season, as plenty of his throws against LSU were NFL caliber: the back shoulder fades, the first touchdown to Hopkins in a two-foot window off the ground, the third down conversion to Ford with a free rusher in his face...all impressive.

In response to Reply # 1


  

          

He finally got a chance to start for a full season last year, and there were some encouraging signs. Firstly, he's got serious arm talent -- he flings it 50+ yards with ease, and can fit the ball into non-negotiable spaces all across the field. His accuracy, however, is a work in progress. He'll overthrow and underthrow deep passes, and shorter throws that require touch hit their mark sporadically.

Timing is also an issue, as he's often a beat late (it's mitigated by his arm strength, but still). His best work is rolling out towards the sidelines, where he makes throws that cannot be defended.

He plays a lot of pro-style -- under center, play-action and so on. He also moves well (nice touchdown run against Notre Dame last season, nullified by penalty) but isn't a game-breaker outside the pocket. Definitely a talent though, and I'll be keeping a closer eye on him now.

142. "great arm talent, not much else"
In response to Reply # 78


  

          

draftable as a developmental prospect, but his lack of "quarterbacking" skills at a NFL proficiency after all these starts is not promising

From an arm and physical standpoint, this guy is in Cam Newton, Andrew Luck, Josh Freeman territory. He stands tall in the pocket (too much so, as he doesn't know when to give up on a play) and when he gets on the move, he's one of those physical intimidators that can run over a linebacker. If his footwork and mechanics are in-tune, he can make all the throws.

Yes, he was awful in 2012, but I'm going to toss out his junior season and hope for the best with new coaches this fall.

Everyone remembers that horrific performance against Bama, but that VT offense blows and he got better as the year went on. He's got way more talent than anyone else who'd be available on Day 3, might as well take a chance on him than someone who'll never be more than a #2 QB.

He does some good things. He can make two or three reads per snap, throws an accurate ball that can be caught and run with, is smooth in his mechanics and creates plays in the scramble drill.

I need to find out more about his arm strength -- it appears good enough, but defenders get great jumps on his passes when he's aiming for narrower windows. I also have questions about how he handles pressure. I've seen him get sacked several times despite obvious extra blitzers shown pre-snap.

Solid first game for him. Nevada didn't have the talent to be elaborate on defense, so they threw a lot of simple coverage shells and blitz reads at him -- which he handled well. Did a nice job looking off defenders when the Wolf Pack disguised a few wrinkles and traps in there.

He likes to run more than he should. He's shifty and strong, but is still forsaking the 25-yard completion for the 15-yard scramble. Great accuracy on all crossing routes. Placement on deep passes, especially sideline throws, wasn't great, but that's largely an opening game symptom.

146. "Honestly was a little disappointing to me this year"
In response to Reply # 118


  

          

We had a good year, and Hundley was a big part of that, but I was hoping to be blown away by his passing this year and wasn't. There were too many times this year where teams dared us to beat them through the air by going press man outside and there were too many times our offense stalled when they did so. Hundley was actually pretty good at hitting the deep go routes by the end of the year (we started a couple games hitting those big) but did pretty poorly with any sort of anticipatory throws. He had some really bad picks against Stanford and Oregon as well.

All that being said, it wouldn't surprise me if he left still, all the tools are still there and this QB class is probably weaker than next years, with a ton of QB needy teams at the top of the draft. To me he needs another year but I don't really see how he falls out of the first, so he probably goes.

I'm going in with a clean slate this season, since he's been bounced around and lacked a consistent role. A lot to improve upon after that opener, though. His first interception was atrocious -- staring down an out with his back on the goal-line and then soft-tossing a gimmie. One of those mistakes a quarterback cannot make under any circumstance.

He did have a few nice sandlot plays, running and throwing, but that's not something he'll be able to rely on against NFL defenses. Play-action showed promise.

Notre Dame should be a good gauge.

but he has a horrible habit of making neutral plays into nuclear disasters. he can absolutely blame the coaches and stunted options, but the ball is in his hands -- under no circumstances can some of those turnovers happen.

too bad he won't have new coaches next year. Lewan didn't get any better either.

But he was just SO beat up by the end of the year

Also I have to disagree about Lewan. Hes been getting blamed for the struggles of everyone else for months, but I never saw his assignment even breathe on Gardner all year. The G-C-G was a revolving door of RAFR and former walk-ons. All Lewan can do is his job.

He's getting a little draft nerd hype but I didn't like what I saw against South Carolina. Weak arm, bad anticipation on downfield throws and unreliable accuracy. He can't complete tight-window, NFL throws with the velocity needed (him throwing from the opposite hash to sideline was scary bad). Also some questionable decisions.

Only one game, but I see a third quarterback *ceiling* right now.

He might be special. His feet and acceleration are impressive, and he can stop-start from any angle. That improvisation can hurt him in the open field, as he tries to out-juke everyone instead running through an opening, but it only seems to be a problem past the line of scrimmage. Excited to see more.

In response to Reply # 2


  

          

Every undersized skill player is going to get the Tavon Austin comp in 2014. Thomas might be faster in a line, he's nowhere close in his lateral movements. He needs big lanes between the tackles, otherwise he pecks around and bails out to find the sideline. If he gets a seam he's gone, but Austin was better at creating his own space.

Fumbling 10 times in the last two seasons (without being the primary ball-carrier) is also worrying, mostly because he'll cough it up from the softest contact. I think he's a much better receiver than running back right now, so we'll see how he does as the main guy.

In response to Reply # 40


  

          

He is the prototypical "TZR" in our offense - switching seamlessly between the (T)ailback and Z/R receiver positions.

Folks forget that Josh Huff was really the first guy we had in that role, for all of his freshman year, but due to depth at WR and the arrival of DAT we pushed him outside into a pure WR role. The talk is now that he's going to be re-integrated into the slot. I'm expecting a huge year from him with a veteran (hah) QB and a more considerable passing attack overall.

With Byron Marshall looking "the part" increasingly and the arrival of Tyner in a few months, I'm hoping that DAT isn't asked to take that many snaps from the backfield - though they've been suggesting all spring that he's now the number 1 there.

Now this guy reminds me more of Tavon Austin than anybody else in the class. His cuts and balance are on a different level, and he accelerates past defenders like they're standing still. Tough for his size.

He splits touches between returner, part-time back and slot weapon, although he's not yet a polished receiver. He'll flub a number of catches, but does show the ability to go downfield and gets separation whenever he wants too.

He runs tall and with a gliding style, inviting tons of contact -- which he usually sheds. His leg drive is awesome, and defenders need to properly wrap him up to save embarrassment. He can't make something out of nothing, but his jump cut is good enough to get into the second level. Receiving needs work.

Oh, and he's been arrested three times since February 2012. Mostly over the dumbest misdemeanor shit.

Another big back, he missed most of last year with an ACL tear but should be good to go this season. He wasn't a hard-cutting, explosive back before surgery so I don't see his style changing much. He's more like a Le'Veon Bell.

He has natural receiving skills and good movement for a back of his size, but he's sort of a tweener. He's not a good enough runner to necessitate carries, and his usage as an H-back is curtailed by his horrible blocking. He's a matador's cape as a lead blocker and pass protector.

I see him as a Marcel Reece utility back, but his blocking has to improve a lot.

In response to Reply # 3


  

          

A little off last year. He was suspended for weed, got nicked up, and missed a couple games due to illness or early injury. As a freshman, when he got open it was catch-cut-and-gone -- in 2012, he lacked that same explosiveness.

He's run a lot of simplistic routes in his career so far, so I'd like to see more nuance when setting up corners this fall. And how he does as the singular focus of every defense.

Chris carter like ball instincts
Plucks the ball out the air in almost any situation
Extremely explosive gets 0-100 insanely fast
Lateral quickness is great has great vision
Always gets up field after the catch yet rarely gets hit clean

Only drawback is Clemson never had him run a lot of precision/timing routes
It will be an adjustment

I also don't know if his speed is all quickness
Or if it's balanced he is a home run hitter either way. I just hope people don't put too much stock in his 40 time if it's more than 4.3

Is a homerun hitter with unreal catching ability if route running is where it appears
He can literally be Chris Carter with better speed

Top 10 pick

He's big and runs well. That's about all he has going for him. It's rare that he makes a clean catch, with all sorts of body traps, double-clutches and Mutombo spikes. Even when he gets extended and his hands placed correctly, his grip is so weak that corners can just swat the ball out (he might have small hands for his frame).

His size will keep the radar on him, so hopefully he improves at the whole catching the ball part.

I liked him less the more I watched him. He's a slow-stepper, doesn't seem to separate enough and his hands aren't perfect. But wow, he makes some incredible catches down the seam. I prefer my slot receivers faster and my outside receivers bigger, although he could become enough of a technician to compensate. Looks like a Jason Avant, inside possession type (back when Avant could catch).

Very nice slot prospect. Outstanding awareness when it comes to the sideline and first down marker, with great feet to stay inbounds. Really smooth; he stops and starts well and shows reliable hands. He's not just running open against linebackers, either -- he lines up plenty outside, and wins contested deep passes against bigger corners.

Based on his size, his timed speed will be a big part of his evaluation, but I'm a fan.

More burst than Landry, he's not a pure speed player but he can push open deep zones. Great body control and someone who contorts to the often inaccurate throws he's seen in his career. YAC ability across the middle. He might be closer to 5'10 or 5'11 though, as LSU is known to exaggerate their listings. Good punter returner.

Tall enough to play outside but does his best work down the seam. He's not explosive in his stride and his hands are good, not great. Possession-type.

Another tall receiver who doesn't have the great speed to be an elite prospect. However, he does the little things well, including his release against press and footwork near the sideline. And his hands are very, very smooth. A natural who adjusts to bad throws.

Again, a long-strider who can't run past everyone and is limited in the open field, but I like his possession potential. He did get arrested on an assault charge last year (pled down to a misdemeanor), which needs to be checked out.

Small slot receiver with some punt return value. He may lack elite speed, and he could get faster in his breaks -- an exaggerated stride costs him separation. Reliable hands though, and he knows how to cut up zones. Seems like a middle rounder at this point.

Very, very good hands. He'll make easy adjustments, one-handed snares of bullets, over the shoulder, everything. And he has to, because Keith Price throws him some bad ones. I need to see more when it comes to tackle-breaking, separation ability and what kind of blocker he can be. When he has to block NFL front-seven talent (LSU), he gets destroyed. No excuse with that frame.

He's also got some discipline issues.

2013 stats: 62 REC, 973 YDS, 3 TD

I expected him to catch more TDs, but he was still UNC's leading/most reliable receiver, and a guy that most teams couldn't consistently stop. Has a great combo of size and speed - too fast for LBs and too big for DBs. Has great hands and can turn bad throws into completions. He improved his blocking this year too.

NFL draft position: first TE taken, probably top 15.

PS What's up Will?

Could he be the best tackle in the Big 11? It's possible, and I thought Taylor Lewan was a top ten pick last year. Great balance, feet, and with a NFL-ready frame. He's already using his hands well, latching inside and controlling defenders with ease. He's got to become a better finisher in the run game, but this is a potentially great prospect.

He's got all the tools, but was far from perfect in his first year starting. His wingspan makes up for a lot of mistakes right now, like a delayed punch (he keeps his hands in his pockets too much) and choppiness in his sets.

His draft projections are based more on how he "could" play rather than how he currently plays, so I want to see if he's really improved his technique.

He put himself in draft conversations after his performance against Clowney. Obviously the strip sack against him made every highlight, but he handled everything else thrown at him up until that point. Speed, power, swim move, inside fake -- Richardson neutralized it all.

He's an aggressive player from the waist up, and does just enough with his feet. Lots to like here.

with this abomination Miami calls an offensive line we are a lock to take a tackle with our first pick. there's a good handful of guys who could go in the 1st, though I don't know who'll be there at 19, I fear the ones guys I want (Kouandjio, Robinson, Richardson or Collins) will be gone.

He's making a ton of mistakes right now, but you can see the potential to be special. He looks like an oversized tight end from a distance, and he shows that athleticism when getting to the second level and walling off linebackers. Positioning and hands mask his current lack of power.

Balance needs to improve -- experienced pass rushers kill him on counters -- and he should grow into his frame as well. Definitely one to watch though, whether he adds to this tackle class or goes into 2015 as one of the top dogs.

Big right guard with light feet. He's super quick off the snap, and is going to win a lot of battles with that initial burst. I saw some issues in protection though -- he can get moved back, but keeps his balance well enough to prevent a jailbreak. He also has some trouble pulling across the formation.

He'd be oversized for right tackle, which makes him even more impressive on the inside. He can pull to either side, which is really impressive with those measurables, and is very smart with positioning. He's not consistently the road-grader you might think, although he does well enough.

His form is all over the place. One play he's pile-driving an All-American linebacker, the next he's on his knees and clogging up the backfield. He needs to get a better latch and use his lower body when blocking, instead of just making that first hit and lunging. He actually looks better in the passing game, using his long arms to keep distance and mirroring well.

Maybe the most talented athlete at his position though, so if he develops his technique he could rise to the top.

I was down on him as a left tackle, but now that he's moving back to guard, we can be friends again. The experience on an island should help him as an inside protector, and his versatility (he played right tackle too) is a bonus for depth-strapped teams in the cap era. Solid run blocker who at times is a dreaded "waist-bender", I think he'll be much more comfortable next to center this season.

Classic right guard who'd be best in a power man scheme. Even when he doesn't get a solid hold, he still shows a ton of power with just his forearms. Moves well in a line but can be a little clunky finding his targets.

Animal. He doesn't have an off button: left end, right end, defensive tackle, chasing 30 yards downfield...he's playing through the whistle on every snap. He uses more of a power and technique game as a pass rusher, but with extremely quick closing speed. One of my favorites.

He's OK. Doesn't have the speed to consistently win the corner, but he'll get pressures by dipping his shoulder and cleaning up breakdowns. Bull-rushes a lot, something I'm not crazy about as a NFL tactic with his size. He does hold gaps decently against the run, so I'm wondering if he can he stand up in a 3-4.

Unleash this guy. He's got great size, can make plays against the run, has enough quickness to disrupt gaps and finishes in space. They even drop him into middle linebacker coverage depth on blitzes.

While he's still putting his abilities into a complete package (last season he disappeared for stretches), I want to see him rushing more. Tigers often went small on passing downs, moving him inside at tackle.

That one play can elevate a guy is a testament to the
shittiness of scouting

I saw that WHOLE GAME when it was on and was scratching
my head like "this guy is a bum."

I didn't even pay much attention to the hit, because
it wasn't relevant in the scope of things.

He was getting tossed

the only clip giving clowney a run for its money in repeat showings is the sanchez ass fumble.

truth is, even before the outback bowl, there was talk of clowney being the first player taken in 2013 if he were eligible.

I'd be hesitant on banking my franchise on a guy that doesn't impact the game on every snap. the spotlight will be on clowney this year so it will be interesting to see if he can step up and add some versatility to his game.

and to be fair about it, the play was immensely critical to the outcome of that game. but people acting like it was some VY rose bowl performance obviously weren't paying attention.

NFL body. He carries his weight extremely well, while keeping his agility. He doesn't play like he looks though, mostly due to weak hand usage and high pads -- he'll make an initial push, but get turned out of lanes and can't make a tackle with his free arm while blocked. Off his feet too much, which connects to the point about his leverage.

I think he's more of a five-tech than tackle (where he plays mostly in college), but he has to get better at making his length a strength, instead of letting his height become a weakness.

Listless talent. He does just enough to keep you interested -- power in his hands but not consistent enough to beat blocks, good pursuit tackler but no immediacy from the edge. Right now he's a guy who can hold a point and is smooth enough to drop into coverage...which NFL teams need, but not befitting his talent. Hope he gets better.

Mountain of a player. He looks like he's playing in the wrong age division, and when he's on, he basically runs over guards. He was raw last season, and Tennessee was probably a downgrade in coaching coming from a JUCO, but he once he figured things out it was hard to move him. Arrow pointing up.

Don't like him. He looks like a fat middle linebacker, without the quickness you want from a tackle under 300 pounds. He can't do anything against the run -- even cut blocks send him back a few yards -- and wastes a lot of motion with his arms trying to shed blocks. He needs to either gain strength or improve his technique a lot. He's still young though.

He's very, very quick for his size, and that's how he beats his opponents. Lines up as a traditional nose tackle, either zero-tech or slight shade, and makes his back seven look good in the process (Te'o last season). He's currently not as dominant as Lotulelei was, but if he develops better rush moves to combine with his initial burst, he can be one of those rare block-eaters who also applies pressure.

Undersized like Jernigan, the difference being he actually makes plays in the backfield. He consistently finds openings to the quarterback, and if you leave him one-on-one against a guard he can wreck your entire protection. Nifty pass rusher who chops down hands and swims past. A finisher (23.5 tackles for loss, 12 sacks).

I have questions about his arm length, plus whether he can play 3-4 end (probably only as a one-gap) if needed. But the NFL will find snaps for those who get to the quarterback.

Trapped between two positions. He's not quick enough to play on the end of a four-man line, and lacks the length that teams prefer for their 3-4 ends. Reportedly he's putting on weight and moving back to tackle full-time, but even there his hands need to get better. He's got a great club move, but often he'll never shed his block and be thrown around.

He plays all over the interior, even shifting over center. But he's best at three-tech. From there he shows a real burst, shooting into the backfield and disrupting run and pass. Everywhere else he was ordinary, as he lacks the size or technique to anchor a gap. Routinely lost battles against Mississippi State's Gabe Jackson when not rushing from his outside shoulder.

Had a suh like season but wasn't heralded as much due
To playing for Pitt

If he was 2 -3 inches taller and played for a bigger named program
He would be a top 5 pick

Great initial push
Good quickness
Arsenal of pass rush moves
Was the best DT in the country in 13

Cons-

Kinda short
Must be around 280+ anything lesser GMs gonna get noid

Should be a top 15 but he will be 17-25
3 technique Dt

When he can keep himself clean, this guy is unreal. He closes like a homing missile, hitting with force that defies his size. It's fun to watch him prey on ball-carriers.

He takes a lot of chances getting to them, though. Ducks around most linemen and is not always gap sound. He's got a spidery frame not built to handle blocks, so he needs to add weight. He's also unsure in coverage -- moving backwards and reacting is the opposite of what he does best.

I'm curious to how teams see him in the NFL; he's sized like a 4-3 weak-side backer, but the way he plays on the edge and to the sideline could interest a 3-4 team.

Scary big, with room to add even more weight in his lower body. He plays a lot of end when Saban goes to a four-man front, although his pass rushing isn't dynamic yet. He lacks pure edge speed (same as Courtney Upshaw) and relies on power moves or stunts. Needs a deeper arsenal.

For his size though, he still runs well. He can easily stand up and make plays from sideline to sideline, or even downfield. Very intriguing as a multipurpose, oversized edge defender.

Lanky, long-legged rusher who currently plays out of a three-point stance on most downs. Right now he creates enough space between linemen with his hands, but could stand to get better at disengaging. Speed is average. Maybe some outside 3-4 potential here.

Not flashy or super athletic, he just takes on linemen and does the dirty work. He lacks the speed to be an outright difference-maker, but give me a tough guy who stacks and sheds blocks every play. I like him a lot.

I don't see him as being quite as ridiculously explosive as Von Miller or Aldon Smith as a pass rusher, but he got a lot better as far as defending the run, pass coverage, and staying disciplined. Pretty much like a bigger, faster Clay Matthews, which is definitely worthy of a top 10 pick.

He didn't even start full-time last season, and was arguably Alabama's best player on defense. He's got that innate gift for finding the football, seeing plays develop a second before anybody else. He runs faster, hits harder and looks smarter because of that anticipation.

He can play any linebacker position, drops into coverage like a safety (which he could play minus 15 pounds), times his blitzes perfectly and is a great tackler. He's NFL-ready now, but it wouldn't surprise me if he got even better this fall.

A smaller version of Dont'a Hightower, right down to the ACL tear and subsequent mediocre season. He's a vicious hitter in the box -- one of those guys who rarely allows runners to fall forward -- and plays mean when challenged by linemen.

He was a bit stiff in his first year back from knee surgery, so I expect him to be much faster to the football and improved in coverage this fall.

Big, agile defender with some closing burst. He's great at making tackles while being blocked, and has the speed to split gaps and invade the backfield. Power tackler who brings down ball-carriers with force.

He has some trouble against the elite athletes in coverage, although his positioning is OK. Very interesting prospect.

He's got everything needed to become an elite prospect (well, except for great hands), he just needs to iron out his technique. Great frame; he's got size and flexibility without the high waist you see from most taller corners. Very good recovery quickness. He can swivel, break and drive with immediacy. Fluid and fast.

Right now though, he gives up too many plays that he shouldn't. Not with his talent. He gets in trouble with his hips, opening them too early in press, and doesn't always play to the coverage correctly (he'll give up posts and slants off inside leverage). A ton of potential though.

As a sophomore he showed some of the best ball skills I've seen in a decade, but last year was not so good. He played primarily off coverage in 2012, to very poor effect, and all that shuffle-stepping seemed to wreck his regular backpedal technique as well. Too many times he looked tight-hipped and off balance.

So this season is huge for him. He's better near the line of scrimmage, but I still want to see his discipline improve when he's playing off. He may end up being a safety prospect for certain teams, which I think is fine, since his tracking ability is special and he's a good tackler already.

I guess I'm a fan, but I have reservations. He gets beat often on first moves, gambling away position and having to make up ground immediately. However, right now he can disguise that with his excellent recovery speed and how good he is in trail coverage. He plays the receivers' hip, times his move perfectly and attacks their hands -- which is why he had so many passes defended.

I wish he hadn't faced so many substandard passers (NFL quarterbacks don't miss the openings he gave up) last year, but hopefully he sharpens up his game anyway.

It's too bad he commits so much interference, because he can make plays on the ball without it. Great leaper, long arms and rips out completions before feet hit the ground. Forced a ton of fumbles as well.

I can't even tell about his coverage, however, due to the fact he's grabbing receivers at every single chance. Not bumping them, but literally pulling their pads and jerseys without a care. It's a scary habit, because NFL officials are actually competent compared to the Pac-12's.

He can play tight mirror (not press) against anybody, and that's what Florida asks him to do on most Saturdays. Very disciplined; he stays square and doesn't open up until a receiver declares his release side. You need a great throw or catch to beat him in man coverage, and even then he has long arms to give him one last chance at a break-up.

I like him a shade better than his teammate Roberson, but his conservatism may be a negative to others.

Very much like Purifoy, but a little stronger and more aggressive. He breaks hard off the first move, which can hurt him against better route-runners, and he can get too loose in his hips (forced to armbar a lot). Panicky in deep coverage and will commit needless interference.

However, he also makes a lot more plays on the ball than Purifoy, so it's a matter of tweaking his risk-reward style to a better balance.

Extremely well coached, smart player. He's good in tight man and even better playing off. Diagnoses route patterns well -- fights through picks, and peels off decoys in zone. Compact, fluid guy who breaks out his pedal quickly.

He also has an aggressive side, yet he stays in control. Good blitzer off the boundary side and a very sound tackler. Teams won't love his size, but he rarely beats himself and makes his share of plays.

When he does everything right before the ball is in the air, it's hard to complete passes against him. He's superb at using his body to block out receivers and times his break ups well. He can play tight mirror or zone, is built solidly, and doesn't back down against the run (minus the overzealous shoulder tackling at times).

When he makes one false step though, his coverage gets dicey. Does he have recovery speed? Long speed? That great timing goes away when he's chasing numbers downfield. I'm interested, but he has less margin for error as a sub-six-footer and possibly 4.5+ guy.

He's on some watch lists but I don't see much here (I like his teammate Exum better). His footwork needs a revamp and he has trouble finding the ball. A year can make a big difference, so maybe he figures things out.

In response to Reply # 12


  

          

I didn't pay much attention to him last season, but one play convinced me he's a legitimate NFL prospect: his interception in the SEC Championship.

Georgia lined up with trips to the left, with Clinton-Dix in single-high coverage. At the snap, the receivers ran a hitch-seam-post combination -- Clinton-Dix kept equal distance between the seam and post while in his backpedal, read Murray's eyes and broke on the pass as soon as it left his hand for an easy pick. Both inside routes were threatening him deep, and designed to make him choose, but he didn't overplay either and came up with a huge turnover.

Now that play doesn't make him a star or anything, but does show he's well-coached, disciplined, and has the athleticism and ball skills to play centerfield. I know he's a solid prospect, now I want to find out if he could be a great one.

He's really fluid and covers a lot of ground, but I need to see a lot more of him. What I did watch was not consistent: he abandoned zone coverage at the goal-line when the quarterback broke the pocket (sucker move), took some horrible angles (how 15-yard posts go for touchdowns), muffed a gimmie interception, and was late to passes when playing deep center. Jury's out.

Based on his college listing I'll assume he's 5'11 or shorter. At that size, you want a player who has more coverage versatility (his feet look heavy in man). Assignment-sound and gap-disciplined, but doesn't close ground at a high level.

Adept at blitzes and racks up tackles (even if they aren't the prettiest form). A very good collegian, but you can see the deep cracks in his game against top-tier athletes.

Long-legged and stiffly built, he plays a bit tall for me. Goes for hits to break up passes instead of reaching for deflections. I question his range; on one TCU touchdown he couldn't get to a running back down the sideline despite starting from the nearest hash.

South Carolina's coaches have been lining him up everywhere lately, which might be for their own satisfaction rather than his -- how many times do you get to coach a defender who can line up at every single front seven position?

what a difference a year makes...
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/writers/andrew_perloff/05/01/2013.nfl.mock.draft/index.html

As far as their top 10 picks...:

They had Tyler Wilson going #1 overall, he ended up being a 4th rounder that got cut but the Raiders and cleared waivers and resigned to their practice squad...

Joeckel held his position...

Amerson ended up being a late 2nd rounder...

Bray was undrafted...

Woods was 2nd rounder...

Montgomery was a late 3rd rounder...

Rhodes went late first...

Barkley went fourth round...

They had the Rams drafting Barrett Jones 9th, we actually got him in the 4th round

Jarvis Jones went a little later at 17...

Also interesting they had Miami safety Ray-Ray Armstrong going 25th overall, the Rams signed him as an undrafted free agent and he made the team as a linebacker...

and have no league contacts. Montgomery (undersized five-tech), Amerson (he had a 2nd or 3rd round grade from scouts after 2011), Woods and Jones were NEVER top ten prospects.

Bray and Da'Rick Rogers were Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne. Armstrong probably would've been drafted in the middle rounds had he stayed at Miami or been eligible afterwords.

But I liked what I saw in the bowl game and on tape.

Would not want to pick him in the top ten but with the measurable and the what he could do at his Pro Day or Combine he will probably go in the top 10.

He looks like a better Tannehill to me. Better in decision making and ball placement. But he also looks like he lacks focus sometimes.
