Match Up Sheet For The 

Senior Bowl 

Part I.

By TOM

I tried to do way too much and now I'm in trouble. I will get both up as soon as I can. But here is the South Offense Matchup chart against the North Defense. The next one won't be as complete:

South Offense:

#1  Jalen Hurts- Oklahoma, QB, 6-2, 225- He is as tough as any QB in this Draft. His question is, can he be a pass first QB. He took a huge step towards being a passing QB at Oklahoma. If I was a team interested in Hurts, I’d trade up in the 1st to snag CeeDee Lamb, and then do everything I can to grab him in the 2nd (and if you whiff on him, you still got CeeDee Lamb, one of the true elite talents at WR in this years Draft;). Hurts had a chemistry with Lamb that few QB-WR pairs ever had, and he certainly never had with another WR in college. He did not throw as well to any other reliever, ever. He had 8 INTs against 32 TDs. He can really move well in the pocket.

#10 Justin Herbert- Oregon, QB, 6-6, 237- He has had up and down career. Every time I watch him, I love what he does. Then he gets erratic and pisses me off. I loved what he did late in the season. Then he struggled throwing the ball in the Bowl Game, and pissed me off. But he won. He had to use his feet to win the game. And he won the Bowl Game.

He really looks the part. More than any QB at the Combine, he looks like an NFL QB. He has a nice variety of release points in his throws to throw over and around the traffic in front of him. He did improve in just about every area in 2019. Reminds me of a little more refined Josh Allen.

#12 Steven Montez- Colorado, QB, 6-5, 230- I really like this kid. He can be erratic, but he seems to get better as the game goes on. Not great feet in the pocket, but the are great when he takes off and runs. When he loses control of his feet in the pocket, he loses control of his throws. But he is also better throwing on the run than standing in the pocket. Which is so odd. He also has an NFL arm. He has a ton of work to do on his feet in the pocket.

If he can clean that up and learn to throw in rhythm much better, he has the arm and clutch to win some games. Great off platform thrower. He holds onto the ball for too long in the pocket. Almost like he knows he throws better off platform and on the move. He wants to take off and run to throw on the move. He is a great scrambler, but he too often takes off and throws on the run/. Like he has to, because he seems to throw more accurately on the move.

 

#5 Austin Mack- Ohio State, WR, 6-2, 215- He has some suddenness turning upfield after the catch. He has that short area quickness you need in a WR. He had some shaky hands in practice at the SB. He knows how to get open in the Redzone and Endzone. He runs a terrific comeback to win in limited space. He can reach back and snag the pass behind him. Impressive hands, but he will drop the easy one now and again. He plays on both side. He is excellent getting open short and quick, so his QB can throw in rhythm and not worry about the rush. Big and strong, to break tackles and straight arm DBs for extra yards. He has the quicks in pattern to break open for the easy throw.

Ohio State 2018: A well-rounded student-athlete, Austin Mack has made his mark on the field and in the community at Ohio State … a veteran of 34 career games, he is tops among returning wide receivers with 19 career starts … he was having the best statistical season of his career as a true junior in 2018 before a foot injury in late October ended his year.

#4  Brandon Aiyuk- ASU, WR, 6-1, 206- I think he is faster and more dynamic than N’Keal. It will be interesting to see him at the Combine. N’Keal ran a 4.5-flat. I think that makes him a 4.4 guy. I could see the Pats snagging him at 23 with a 4.45 or better. Which could also help his transition into the NFL, if he and Harry are friends. Harry could help him adjust to the life as an NFL rookie in, ug, Foxboro, and help with the playbook.

Great quick hands to snap up and snag the fastball flying over his head. Love his hands. The blazing off target throws just melts into his hands like ice cream. Strong release and can run through two DBs trying to jam him. Great punt returner. He consistently makes the first guy miss. Then he is dynamic finding a lane.

He has some great suddenness in patterns breaking to either side. That is how he gets open so consistently in pattern. I think he is a 1st Round pick, and the more Tape I watch of him the more obvious that is. He one of those guys that is good at everything, but Draftniks seem to ignore for some reason (not an indictment as I am guilty as well;). But a sub-4.5 will put him in the 1st Round and looked faster than Harry at ASU in 2018.

Overview: 2019 Preseason Phil Steele Pac-12 All-Conference Third Team selection. Among returning wide receivers with at least 40 returning targets, he ranked 11th in the Pac-12 (106.2) in wide receiver rating according to PFF, finishing third among Pac-12 players in their first season in Division I football. Had the 15th-highest receiving score among returning wide receivers in the Pac-12 at 68.7. That score represents the fourth highest total for players in their first season of Division I football. Has the ability to return both punts and kickoffs. 2018: Made a successful transition from the Junior College to Division I level, getting more comfortable in the offense as the season went on. Looks to make his mark during his senior season as one of the top returning wide receivers in the Pac-12. Played in all 13 games for the Sun Devils, recording 33 catches for 474 yards and three touchdowns.

#6  Devin Duvernay- Texas, WR, 5-11, 210- He is so good at getting wide open running a Corner route from the Slot. They like to run the bubble screens to him and let him use his great instincts. When he catches it over the middle and breaks a tackle, he can go a long way. He ran the 100-meters in high school. He needs some space to run. He had four plays of over 20-yards against TCU. He is a team captain. He is short, but stocky, and has huge thighs and strongly built. He is the best in the Draft running a Slot-Fade. He was a very talented high school sprinter.

A fourth-year wide receiver who has played in all 51 games and made 29 starts ... named to the All-Big 12 First Team and was honorable mention as Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year in 2019 … added to the Biletnikoff Award midseason watch list in 2019 … named Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week twice… a three-time Academic All-Big 12 first team selection (2017, 2018, 2019) … also a five-time member of the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll (fall 2016, spring 2017, fall 2017; spring 2018, spring 2019) ... named to the Academic All-Big 12 Rookie team in 2016-17 … named Big 12 Conference Newcomer of the Week (Oct. 17, 2016).

#11 Collin Johnson- Texas, WR, 6-6, 220- He runs patterns to get open over the middle. Knows how to use his size. He has everything except pure speed. But he played faster in 2019. He Forty at the Combine is everything and will determine how high he can go. He consistently ran  patterns to get open over the top of the CB. It seemed to come together mentally for him running pattern mid-season this year. He will make three subtle cuts on the skinny post to get wide open. He was not doing that early in the season. I loved the way he was running patterns to get open against a very good TCU defense, and a great CB in Gladney.

A fourth-year wide receiver who has played in 44 games with 28 starts ...  one of six Longhorns elected by their teammates as a captain for the 2019 season ... entered his senior season with 150 receptions (ninth-most in school history) for 2,065 yards (10th-most in school history) and 12 touchdowns ... named to the preseason watch list for the Biletnikoff Award in 2019 ... A first team preseason All-Big 12 selection by Phil Steele in 2019 ... also named to the Preseason All-Big 12 Team ... a third team preseason All-America honoree by Phil Steele and a fourth team selection by Athlon Sports in 2019 ... named third team preseason All-Big 12 by both Athlon Sports and Phil Steele in 2018 … named to 2018 Biletnikoff Award, Wuerffel Trophy and Walter Camp Award watch lists.

#14 Van Jefferson- Florida, WR, 6-2, 197- He knows how to run crisp patterns to create all kinds of separation. He is a technician running patterns. Elie catch radius. He is one of the smartest route runners I have seen. He just kept running patterns to get open in SB practices. He is so good catching the low throw and holding on as the CB hits him. Great adjustments at the stem. He has a great inside release that makes him instantly open. He is more of a big slot WR. His production did not match his talent. That is why he will drift down into Day Two. His stats where very similar in 2019 as they were in 2018.

2018: Played in and started all 13 games… Led the Gators in receptions (35), receiving yards (503), receiving touchdowns (six) and average yards per game (38.7)… His six touchdown receptions tied Solomon Patton (2013) for the third-highest season total by a Gator since 2009… Returned three punts for 17 yards with a long of nine… Ranked fourth on the team in points score (36) and all-purpose yards (520).

#15 Jauan Jennings- Tennessee, WR, 6-3, 208, Rs-Sr- He can run Outs to get open fast for the QB. His size comes in handy in the Endzone. They line him up in the Slot a lot. Runs a nice Dig from the Slot. They don’t run a lot of complicated patterns. He will need a lot of teaching on the next level. They will have all five WR run the same patterns on the same play, short digs. Great quick feet on breaks. He has some suddenness in his shoulders running outs. Doesn’t block much. He get open running an Out at the Marker. He can be a bit of a body catcher. He will let fastballs fly through his hands on short routes sometimes. Looks like a Day Three guy to me.

Capped his career as one of the top receivers in program history, finishing fifth all-time at UT in receptions (146), fourth in receiving yards (2,153) and tied-for-fifth in touchdown receptions (18) ... The 6-3, 208-pounder from Murfreesboro, Tenn., played in 50 career games and made 30 starts ... He also tossed two career touchdown passes and made an interception on defense in his career to go along with his receiving accolades ... He led all wide receivers in the nation in broken tackles with 30 in 2019 according to PFF College ... Will be remembered for his competitiveness, his comeback and for the 43-yard Hail Mary touchdown catch from Joshua Dobbs to beat Georgia in Athens in 2016. 

2019: RS-SENIOR: Finished as one of the SEC's top wideouts as a senior in 2019, leading the Vols with 59 receptions for 969 yards and eight touchdown catches, while adding a rushing score ... Ranked fifth in the SEC in receiving yards and sixth in yards per game (74.5) ... Selected as Tennessee's team MVP and as a permanent team captain at the year-end banquet ... Ranked tied-for-eight in the SEC with 59 receptions ... Led the nation in broken tackles (30) by a wide receiver, according to PFF College ... Appeared in all 13 games with nine starts.

#16 Kalija Lipscomb- Vanderbilt, WR, 6-1, 201- Great feet in pattern. He has some quicks moving side to side in pattern. He has some twitch to him. Dynamic running after the catch. They will throw him bubble screens just to get the ball in his hands. Can run the subtle patterns. Knows how to change speed in pattern to trick the CB. He can run patterns to get open in the Redzone. Good feel for sinking into zones. Smart player. He will struggle catching through contact sometimes, but he snags everything when he is clean. Usually a smooth hands catcher.

Elite blocker. He can get to the CB in off, get his hands in his shirt, and hold on until the whistle. He is a great blocker, he can block the CB and push him back, and then slide off and hit the Safety flying downhill towards the RB. A WR who can block two defenders on the Edge on a toss to his side is worth his weight in gold.

I like guys from Vandy and Purdue, because they are the two least talented teams in the SEC (ah, by a lot), and they are always playing against the most talented defenses in the FBS. He  played against LSU’s D, Alabama’s D, and Georgia’s D every year.

As a Senior (2019): Biletnikoff Award Watch List. Preseason First Team All-SEC (Athlon Sports, Lindy’s). Preseason Second Team All-SEC (SEC Media Days ballot). 194 catches in career, ranking fifth all-time at Vanderbilt. 2,313 receiving yards, ranking eighth all-time at Vanderbilt. 21 touchdown catches, tied for  second all-time at Vanderbilt. 11 games played. Earned 11 starts at wide receiver. Topped team with 47 receptions and 511 receiving yards.  Six receptions of at least 35 yards. Six catches and 75 receiving yards in win over East Tennessee State.

 

#80 Jared Pinkey- Vanderbilt, TE, 6-4, 260,- He is a big old fashion blocking Tight End. He also has excellent hands. He knows how to sink into hole in the zone, and he can make breaks to get open in man. Nice soft hands. Plus, he played at Vanderbilt. Which means he played in the SEC against teams that were much more talented than his team. And he played very well. This is more the kind of TE that BB likes. He is as good a blocker as he is a receiver. I like Bryce Hopkins more because he is the best receiving TE in this Draft. But Pinkey is going to be available in the 2nd and maybe the 3rd Round.

As a Senior (2019): John Mackey Award Watch List. Biletnikoff Award Watch List. Preseason All-American First Team Tight End (Street & Smith’s, Sporting News). Preseason All-American Third Team Tight End (Phil Steele). Preseason All-American Second Team Tight End (CollegeFootballNews.com). Preseason All-SEC Second Team Tight End (SEC Media Day voters). Preseason All-SEC Second Team Tight End (Phil Steele, Lindy’s, Athlon Sports). 11 games played. Started first 11 games of senior season at tight end. 20 receptions, 233 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Season highs of five catches, 76 yards and two scores in win over East Tennessee State. Four catches for 47 yards against LSU. Three receptions for 61 yards at Purdue. Two catches against Missouri, UNLV and Georgia. Second career 100-yard receiving game came in win over Northern Illinois.

#81 Stephen Sullivan- LSU, TE, 6-5, 242- Talented kid, who barely played. He is a more of an H-back than a true TE. He did not get on the field much at LSU. Some think he could slip into Day Two, if he has a great Senior Bowl and Combine. I think he is a pure upside Day Three guy. He lined up outside like an X sometimes. He kept running patterns to get open in practice at Senior Bowl. He is a body catcher sometimes. He was a pure back up. Good blocker. He can block like a FB and a TE. Nice job flying into the Box and taking out the Safety going down hill with a huge hit. Great athlete, that LSU had running deep patterns a lot, who much more promise than production. He reminds me of Jermaine Wiggins.

One of the tallest receivers in school history at 6-foot-7 … Uses his large frame and outstanding leaping ability to his advantage … Great hands with the ability to create yards after the catch due to his size and speed … Spent time learning the tight end position during the spring, giving the Tigers another option in the passing game … Will continue to cross-train at both wide receiver and tight end in 2019 … Has 34 games to his credit with nine starts … Goes into 2019 with 34 career receptions for 582 yards and three touchdowns … Graduated in August 2019 with a degree in interdisciplinary studies.

JUNIOR SEASON (2018): Played in 13 games with one start in 2018 … Second on team in receptions (23) and yards (363) … Caught a pair of TD passes and had at least one reception in 10 of LSU’s 13 games … Rushed twice for 20 yards, including an 11-yard run against Ole Miss … Against Auburn, made a spectacular 9-yard reception on fourth-and-nine late in the game that extended a drive that eventually led to Cole Tracy’s 42-yard game-winning field goal as time expired in LSU victory at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

#83 Josiah Deguara- Cincinnati, TE/FB. 6-3, 240- He can get open short on the seams. He was impressive in Senior Bowl practices. They kept him in to block in pass pro. He needs work on blocking in pass pro. He gives good effort, and when he latches on he can win in the end. But he does not control the defender. The defender tends to controls him.

He doesn’t have a natural feel for open space in pattern. He has some speed in pattern. He can get open running an Out from the slot. He can change speed in pattern. Shifty feet in pattern sometimes. He can line up in the slot and get open going down the seam. He a nice quick move inside. The QB doesn’t look his way very often. Good soft hands. He is a Day Three guy at best.

#40 Harrison Bryant- Florida Atlantic, TE, 6-5, 240- He had a ton of production at a smaller school. Terrific athlete. He really looks the part. Not a great blocker. He gives good effort. Light hands. Needs to grab shirt better. More of an H-back. He will lead the RB through the hole like a FB and give a good hit, but he struggle to sustain blocks.

He can sustain blocks against DBs in space for a long time, and eventually pancake them 20-yards downfield. More of an athletic blocker, who struggles against the bigger guys. He is slick in patterns. He can move across the line like he is blocking, and then break wide open down field uncovered. He caught that pass against North Texas, and ran for a 56-yard TD. Excellent receiving H-back prospect. But he will take some time, and strength training.

 

#2  Lamical Perine- Florida, RB, 5-11, 218- I like this kid. He has some shake and bake. Tough as nails. Nice receiver swinging out of the backfield. He can get wide open down the sideline in pattern. He will line up outside like an X. He can get open in pattern outside and they will throw him the ball, and he’ll catch it. He can catch the option and turn upfield for a nice gain. Shifty runner. Finds the hole and slashes through it quick. Herky jerky and tricky with the ball in his hands. A Day Three guy who can make a team and become a starter.

2018: Played in all 13 contests and recorded one start (Missouri)… Led the team with 134 carries, 826 rushing yards and seven touchdowns… Caught 13 passes for 170 yards and a touchdown… Ranked first on the Gators in total yards (996) and second in scoring (48)… Tallied a pair of rushing touchdowns against LSU and South Carolina… Notched 100-yard rushing performances at Vanderbilt (23-121) and Florida State (13-129).

#24 Antonio Gibson- Memphis, RB/WR, 6-2, 220- Love this kid. He is the most versatility offensive weapon in this Draft. When he lines up like a WR, he looks and plays like a WR. When he lines up at RB, he looks and plays like an RB. He is an odd prospect. He can be a nice power runner. Then he will line up in the Slot and run a WR pattern. He is a good blocker outside in space.

He is also a terrific kick returner. He played at Community College and was a one year wonder at Memphis last season. Great burst outside. He is one of those rare guys who lines up at RB and looks like an RB running the ball. Then lines up in the slot and looks like a slot WR running pattens and catching the ball. When you throw it too him he catches it, and then runs like an RB after the catch. Great weapon for an offense to have.

#25 Eno Benjamin- ASU, RB, 5-10, 210- Great tough RB. He is small and electric. He has great speed outside. But he is also trouble in the passing game, and will step up in pass pro and block for his RB. I just love his speed on he toss outside. Small RB, but he is tough. He is fast. He runs and play at a different speed. I like this kid. His speed at the Combine will determine how early he can go. Great college RB.

OVERVIEW: Benjamin Placed on Walter Camp Player of the Year Preseason Watch List. Benjamin Selected to Hornung and Wuerffel Award Preseason Watch List. Benjamin Named to Doak Walker Preseason Watch List. Benjamin Earns Spot on Maxwell Award Preseason Watch List. Benjamin Picked as a Preseason All-American by Phil Steele. Returns to Tempe after enjoying one of the greatest seasons by a running back in school history. Record-setting sophomore season in his first-year as the starting running back. 2,190 (1,784 rushing) all-purpose yards during his two seasons at Arizona State. Great vision and footwork help him change direction quickly making him difficult to square up. Built low to the ground with tremendous lower body strength giving him great balance and leg drive, creating plenty of yards after contact. Dynamic play maker with the ball in his hands, making him a weapon out of the backfield and in the return game.

#5  Ke'Shawn Vaughn- Vanderbilt, RB, 5-10, 218- He runs behind his eyes well. Spots the hole and can through it fast. He can take the huge hit and keep on ticking. Nice flash cut in the backfield, when he middle is jammed. He make a few yards when it isn’t there. He will set up to block in pass pro, and then not block. He consistently doesn’t give effort blocking for teammates. He is a Day Three guy. Good receiver out of the  backfield on the Swing pass.

2019: Maxwell Award watch list. Doak Walker Award watch list. Preseason All-American Second Team All-Purpose (Athlon Sports). Preseason All-SEC First Team (Athlon Sports, Lindy’s). Preseason All-SEC Second Team (SEC Media Days ballot). Started every game at running back. 1,015 rushing yards, eighth highest season total in team history. Nine rushing touchdowns, tied for sixth most in team history. In 23 appearances, has 2,259 yards, fifth all-time among Vanderbilt backs. Has 21 rushing touchdowns, third all-time among Vanderbilt backs. Has nine 100+ rushing performances, fourth all-time among Vanderbilt backs. Has 3,144 career rushing yards, 12th most among active players in NCAA. Just third Vanderbilt back to post multiple 1,000+ rushing seasons, joining Ralph Webb and Zac Stacy.

 

#74 John Simpson- Clemson, OLG, 6-4, 330- He is so tough to move off the line. I thought he was the best OLG I saw last year. He is right up there with Shane Lemieux. Lemieux was better in 2018, and I thought Simpson was better and tougher in 2019. He is so good at absorbing the biggest and strongest DT’s get off, and then just stopping him. He has an amazing base to just stop the inside rusher. He uses that leg strength to move forward in run game. He can power the biggest of the biggest DLs back. He hurt the big OLs moving them backwards at SB practice. 

#12 Shane Lemieux- 6-4 316, OLG- He is so balanced and easy in Pass pro. I saw him more as a run block guy, but he so smooth and disciplined in pass pro. Very impressive. Great initial pop to move the DT out of the way. He will get his hands outside sometimes and will keep them low and outside, and likes to pull up on the shirt. He just stones all the DT, and when they try to push him up and take a shoulder, he slides that great base sideways. Great balance in contact. The Pats could really use this guy. He did a great job getting his hands inside in the DE’s shirt, and keeping his feet moving forward to power him out of the play.

#79 Lloyd Cushenberry III- LSU, OC, 6-4, 315- He gets so low off the snap to win leverage every time. He get so low that he can slip to one knee and still win. He plays with elite lean. He gets lower, and will go helmet to helmet, and is so adept at getting his hands inside and pushes and pulls the DT’s shirt up and out of balance. Great feet fight, pushing up, and moving laterally. He could be a great zone blocking OC. Great recovery when he gets beat by the first move.

Clemson: Great quick hands to snap the ball, and then get both hands up instantly into the NT’s shirt and stop him. Nice job extending his right hand after the snap to slow the NT into the ORG, and then grabbing the blitzer with his left hand, turn, and stone him. He can get a hand on two defenders in pass pro as quick as anyone I’ve seen. He is the best OC in this Draft.

#60 Keith Ismael- San Diego State, OL, 6-3, 310- Good quick hands to get into shirt. He has to over lean to get power to move rushers back, but it will get awkward and end soon. He can’t match power for power against the big DLs. He needs to get stronger. Very versatile OL who started games at OC, ORG, and OLG at San Diego State. So he can play all three interior positions.

Pronounced Iz-MALE ... Big, athletic, versatile offensive lineman with excellent technique ... Has a ton of potential ... Was slated to start at left guard as a redshirt freshman heading into the 2017 fall camp, but moved to center, eventually right guard and even left guard against Ohio in the 2018 DXL Frisco Bowl ... Missed the 2019 spring campaign after having shoulder surgery, but enters the fall as the projected starting center.

#65 Terence Steele- Texas Tech, ORT, 6-6, 310- He will give up leverage to the smaller Edge guys. He has to stay lower, and not let the Edge pop him up. If leverage is even he wins. Tends to get his hands outside. Like the fight. When he gets aggressive he wins. He will miss on the quick inside move.

#68 Damien Lewis- LSU, ORG, 6-3, 332- He will over lean for leverage, and lose balance against the aggressive 3-Tech. Then get pissed and dominate the 3-Tech on the next play. He will get over aggressive when he gets popped up, and will lose balance and get thrown to the ground. Not often, but has to stay and play, or he will lose balance. He does a good job getting mean when he gets beat. He gets a little lower, and he he pushes the D up, he wins. Knows how to use his hands to let the the DE drive himself into he ground.

#73 Tremayne Anchrum- 6-2, 315, ORT- Great reach to grab the 5-Tech and turn him inside on outside run. He actually plays with an NFL kickslide moving backwards consistently. On thing about all these spread offenses is that it gets tougher to tougher to see kickslides. Nice power on his outside hand kicksliding backwards.

#75 Ben Bartch- Saint Johns, ORT, 6-6, 305- Big aggressive ORT. He will get out of balance when the DE gets under his pads. But he can hold on and still win. Great hands grabbing shirt, and they are very difficult to punch off. He was winning one on ones at SB. It is a big step up for him, but he looked like a Day Three guy at the SB.

#76 Prince Tega Wanogho- Auburn, OLT, 6-7, 305-

#78 Tyre Phillips- Mississippi State, OG, 6-5, 345- He can get pushed back, reanchors and win, when it looked at first like he was in big trouble. He is a huge guy, who has some twitch in him. Great lateral bust low as a bowling ball to get in front of the great NT, and stone him at the line. If he loses the initial pop, he can gets beat a little too easily, and lose his balance. He has to play lower and with better balance.

#71 Logan Stenberg- Kentucky, OG, 6-6, 322- Very aggressive get off. He has good lean and hit with his facemask. Then he turns him outside with a great thump. He is guy you can run behind. He gets his hands outside a little but fights with good grip and can hold the shirt through the whistle. When he losses the leverage war off the snap, he gets beat. He will lose when the 3-Tech can burst underneath him. But he will also win when he can pull the 3-tech up, and then use hip torque to throw him to the ground.

#77 Alex Taylor- South Carolina State, ORT, 6-9, 305- Very tall dude. Plays high. But he can grab the Edge’s shirt, pull him up, and then win with a wide base in pass pro. Impressive off the snap. You see his size and think he has to lose the leverage war, and then he dominates. He has the ability to get his hands shirt first, and he keeps attacking after. I think he is an NFL ORT. When he gets his hands inside, even though it looks like he is losing he leverage battle, he wins. I don’t know if he can continue to do that against NFL guys. It will be mush more difficult. But is impressive blocking guys who get under him a little.

North Defense:

#11 Alohi Gilman- Notre Dame, FS,  5-10, 202- Terrific FS. He is also a great special teamer. He can help a team in a lot of ways. He can line up like a OLB and make the tackle in the run game. He will get too aggressive in coverage and take the bad PI. He has to chill when he get outside to the WR before the ball. Very aggressive when he is the last line of defense.

#14 Josh Metellus- Michigan- SS, 6', 218- Great strong safety. HE is surprisingly good in coverage. They having go man to man all week at the Senior Bowl, and he was winning. He looks like a solid Day Two Safety. He will kill on special teams, and a=paly for a long time in the NFL. TMWHTMILH. He is a guy the Pats might snag on Day Three.

#21 Jalen Elliott- Notre Dame, S, 6', 210- He can cover the big WR in the Redzone. He didn’t really stand out on tape at ND. However he was one of the best Safeties in SB practices covering slot guys. He will play in the NFL as a FS, who can step into the slot and cover the slot guy. That is more and more valuable every year. He also played a ton of special teams. He is also good in the run game. He can play the ball deep at FS. I like how he can step forward and cover the slot guy ad arrive to hit him right as the ball arrives, and how he can step back seamlessly into Cover One.

JUNIOR SEASON (2018): Started all 13 games, making 67 tackles with four interceptions and seven pass break-ups. One of 35 players in the country with four or more interceptions. Ranked third on the team in pass break-ups and fourth in tackles. Had a pair of interceptions against Ball State. Made two pass break-ups at No. 24 Virginia Tech in return to his home state. Had an interception in win over No. 12 Syracuse at Yankee Stadium.

#22 Jeremy Chinn- Southern Illinois- SS, 6-3, 212- Big Safety/CB that can cover the big 6-5 WR, and knock the pass down. He looked very good in practices at the Senior Bowl. He played a lot of deep Cover One, and the middle in deep Cover Three. He consistently lined up 20-yards off the LOS. He has a ton of experience moving backwards. He will make an NFL roster.

#3  Ashtyn Davis- California, FS, 6-1, 200-

#4  Khaleke Hudson- Michigan- SS, 6', 220- He can cover the big WR deep down the sideline. He gets too aggressive and physical in coverage as you would expect from a SS. He can cover the big WR, and turn back to the QB and make a better play on the ball than the WR, and catch the INT. He was very impressive in coverage drills in SB practices. He was just great in cover in SB practices.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#5 Troy Pride Jr- Notre Dame- CB, 5-11, 194- Very quick CB. Doesn’t buy fakes. HE can run with the speed guy outside. He can force the WR to the sideline, where there is no room to throw into. HE was great in SB practices. I didn’t think he played that we at ND. I have to watch some Tape of him. He has some snap in his hips. He seemed like the only guy who could cover the North WRs in practice a the SB.

#7  Michael Ojemudia- Iowa, CB, 6-1, 200- This kid can play. Knows how to get physical in pattern. He has some suddenness moving back outside, twisting his hips. He has some great snap in his hips. I love this kid. I would Draft him in the 2nd, just to make sure I can get him.

#24 Lamar Jackson- Nebraska, CB, 6-3, 215- He is a late comer to the dance. Great big CB, who is built like an LB. He can time his attack in coverage, and slap the ball out between the WR’s hands. First off, dude is huge. He looks like a small LB or a big SS. But he can run with the WRs outside. They cannot outside physical him. He can also rip the ball out a split second after the ball touches the WR’s hands. It is always amazing to see him running down the sideline stride for stride. Nice job, and hip twist to turn and run in press coverage. I can’t wait to see his hips at the Combine. He is always peeking into the backfield. He will turn and walk sideways back before the snap, staring at the QB. Nice side gallop back while watching the QB. He is  great at looking at the QB, while seeing the WR. HE line sup with outside leverage when the WR line sup inside on the seam. He seems to instinctually, or purposely, protecting the boundary.

#26 Terrell Burgess- Utah, CB, 6', 198-

#27 Essang Bassey- Wake Forest, CB, 5-10, 190- He plays a lot of Off. They always keep him on the QBs right. They don’t like to move him around. Teams will line up in trips left a lot to keep him out of coverage. He can set the edge when a WR doesn’t line up on his side. He is space player who stays away from the LOS. He seems to zone a lot. Smooth pedal. He likes to watch the QB as he pedals.

Not a strong run defender. He seems to play more like a FS in the passing game. He plays in a wacky system where he is asked to do things I have never seen a DB be asked to do. I wasn’t going to do this, but there are too many things that I don’t understand and can’t explain what he is doing in coverage.

First off, he doesn’t move. I have never seen the ball get snapped and a DB not move his feet through almost the whole play. The ball is snapped and he doesn’t move for 4-seconds. The outside WR runs by him and he just stands there. He finally reacts to #6 crossing under him. I have never seen anything like that before (:49). But I’m not blaming him, I’m blaming the coaches. But how do you scout that?

 #31 Javaris Davis- Auburn, CB, 5-10, 190- He can be very sticky. The passing drill at the SB, the DBs where getting toasted. He was one of the few guys who looked like he could run with the great WRs at the SB. He gives up the inside to easily in finesse-press. Great hips turning and running outside. He likes to protect the outside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#13 Francis Bernard- Utah, LB, 6-1, 235- Good job finding the RB in traffic. Needs to stack and shed better.

#6  Joshua Uche- Michigan, OLB, 6-2, 250- He is more of an Edgerusher, but his size doesn’t say that. He is another tweener like Baun. You cannot run to his Edge. He can set it, shed it, and get to the RB. He is really and Edge, but at 6-2, 250 he does not fit the prototype.

The more I watch him the more I like him, but his height worries me. I will be very interested in his arm length at the Combine. But boy can he really run the arc. He can beat a top ORT running the arc like he was Noah. Great agility in dip to make that tight turn inside to the QB, while being hit by the ORT.

#30 Logan Wilson- Wyoming, LB, 6-2, 250- He had a terrific INT in SB practices.

#39 Malik Harrison- Ohio State, LB, 6-3, 240- He can cover the TE down the seam, and leap up and intercept the ball. He can really get outside fast to cover the TE on an Out. Very impressive speed in coverage.

#45 Carter Coughlin- Minnesota, LB, 6-4, 245- He has some good hands in the rush.

#56 Zack Baun- Wisconsin, OLB, 6-3, 235- Another OLB who was more of an Edgerusher in college but doesn’t have the size to do it full time in the NFL. He is a smart guy, who understands scheme. He is a terrific rusher, but he is light and slight for the NFL. He has to get stronger. He played OLB, and also lined up inside to rush.

He can rush from every angle. But he is a bit of a tweener. He is not really an OLB, and he is not really and Edge. So he is versatile or without a position in the NFL. A team that needs that as versatility, won’t let him out of the 2nd. He can find the RB in traffic, on the run to the other side. I love the way he moves on the field.

#89 Evan Weaver- California- ILB, 6-3, 235- He is just so good at finding the RB in traffic. He just runs through the turnpike at 5: O’clock and right into the RB. He is the best in the Draft at finding the RB. He knows how to beat blockers, and where the RB is going. He is smart as can be. He is a tackling machine. He is instantly heading to the ballcarrier, seemingly right at the snap.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#58 Bradlee Anae- Utah, DL, 6-3, 265- I loved this cat as a passrusher at Utah, but was great in run defense in the SB practices. I did not expect that. He is a 1st Round edge. Great job setting the edge outside, and then grabbing the ORT arms, and pulling himself inside to hit the RB. When he wins the hand fight he gets to the ball carrier. He can attack the OLT’s hands and arms with either hand, and both in the rush.

Career leader in Sacks at Utah. PAC-12 DL of the year. High character kid. Great-great hand fighter. He slashed by an ORT in the SB, with a double arm chop, and was by him before he turn around. It was an All-Pro flash and sash running the Arc, with elite technique, speed, and heavy hands. This kid is a 1st Round pick. He has the best hands in the Draft not named Chase or Young. He can get a little too aggressive trying to punch out the ball, which not a bad thing. Great aggressive hands. He is so tough to keep outside when they run inside.

#93 Kenny Willekes- Michigan State, DL, 6-4, 260- He was not good last season. He had a ton of production in 2018. But he did not look good in 2019. He has lot to prove this week.

#94 Alton Robinson- Syracuse, Edge, 6-4, 260- He has the get off and speed to arc to the QB. They were rushing him inside at the SB, and he didn’t look bad. He likes o use speed to power to try and pop the OLT back, and then spin in side. He has some flash dash. He needs to use his long arms better and more consistently. When he tries to get fancy he can flash, but get stoned as well. He is along armed Edgerusher, who needs to do what he does best. When he plays at arm’s length, he really looks good. Terrific job bursting inside, when lined up standing up, and get to the RB running a dive on the other side of the OC. He has some good eyes, and gets through traffic with some flash sometimes.

#95 Trevon Hill- Miami, Edge, 6-3, 238- He has good length. He wants to go upfield every snap. He can getting up field outside, but the OL knows it’s an inside run and he doesn’t. eh can look real bad against the run real quick. I haven’t watched this kid a lot. But he was impressive in practice down at the SB. If he has a good game, he could go a lot higher than expected.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#90 Neville Gallimore- Oklahoma, NT/3-Tech, 6-2, 300- He is a low built brawler. He is not pretty and neither are the trenches in football. He looks a he should be inside in the trenches battling OLs until they puke. He will get over aggressive popping the OG back, and let a hole open underneath him for the RB. He is the guy team double.

#99 Leki Fotu- Utah, NT/DT, 6-5- He plays on the Nose and 3-Tech for Utah. Great NFL size. Extends hands first off the snap, and keeps the OC hands off his shirt as he spies into the backfield. Nice job sliding to his right after he see the hand off to the RB. He gets a little too high, and can struggle to shed against the great OC (nick Harris), but he plays great behind his eyes and hands.

Teams double him in the run. He can take on the double team on the dive at him, and make the RB bounce it outside. He is a rock in the middle. He is a run first DT, but he has some nice hands after the reads pass on the stack and shed.

Returning first-team all-conference player is one of the best defensive tackles in the country.
2018: First-team All-Pac-12 … played in all 14 games with 13 starts … 33 tackles (5.5 TFL, 3.0 sacks) … five tackles vs. Arizona State … four tackles (2.0 TFL, 1.0 sack) vs. BYU … four tackles (1.5 TFL, 1.0 sack) vs. USC … four tackles (0.5 TFL) against Oregon … four tackles vs. Northwestern in the Holiday Bowl … three tackles vs. Northern Illinois (0.5 TFL) and UCLA.

 

#53 Davon Hamilton- Ohio State, DT, 6-4, 310- He showed some flash at the SB. He can get up field hand fighting so the OT cannot grab his shirt. He doesn’t always seem to know what to do with hit. If he can use his eyes to find the ball better, he could put up some serious stats in the NFL. Otherwise he looks more like a disrupter than stat-creator.

#55 Jason Strowbridge- UNC, DL, 6-5, 285- Great quick to cross the OC’s face and slap both his hands off with a slashing double slap. Amazingly quick hands and feet. I like this kid. He has great timing batting passes down. He is a great athlete. Played special teams. Great fighter at the point. He can shove the OL up and hold him until the RB gets near him. Dude can really move. He is great at reading the Offense, and he seems to find the ball carrier whenever he runs into his area. He looks like an 2nd Round DL to me.

#79 Darrion Daniels- Nebraska- 5-T/DT, 6-4, 325- He is one of the three Nebraska 5th year seniors that terrorized O-line last season. He is a grad transfer who really looks the part more than his two DL teammates in their Odd front. All three DLs will be Drafted in 2020. 

The Tuioti/Chinander philosophy is somewhat of a double-edged sword on the surface. Nebraska runs a 3-4 scheme, but their roster is full of defensive linemen who can be swapped across the front. Davis is a perfect example of that. At 6-foot-2 and 325 pounds, he seems to project better at nose tackle than a defensive end. However, Nebraska fans can expect him on the edges trying to accomplish what Freedom Akinmoladun struggled with during 2018: generating consistent pressure on the outside. Don’t be surprised to occasionally see him slide to the interior to eat up double-teams.

#92 Larrell Murchison- North Carolina State, DT, 6-3, 291- When he plays and stays low he is a beast. He has a great power spin  move with vicious elbows that can knock the OC off his shirt. He looks like an NFL 3-Tech to me. Nice initial burst to shove the OC back and to the side, and when he tries to recover spin back the other way to hit the QB. Very impressive balance, agility, and strength for a guy his size.

Rudy Gillian's Bagman Lev Parnas

Blows up Trump's Ukraine Defense

Stephanie Grisham, the White House press secretary, was up bright and early on Thursday morning to try to spin the remarkable interview that MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow did on Wednesday night with Lev Parnas, one of Rudy Giuliani’s bagmen in the effort to extort the government of Ukraine into digging up dirt on Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Parnas claimed that Donald Trump “knew exactly what was going on,” and he also implicated Vice-President Mike Pence. “This is a man who is under indictment and who’s actually out on bail,” Grisham said on Fox & Friends, Donald Trump’s favorite morning show. “This is a man who owns a company called Fraud Inc. . . . We’re not too concerned about it. We know that everything in the Senate is going to be fair.”

The first part of what Grisham said was correct. After being arrested in October as he prepared to board a flight to Vienna, Parnas, a forty-seven-year-old Soviet émigré who grew up in Brooklyn, was charged with four counts of violating campaign-finance laws by trying to hide the source of political donations that originated in Russia. Campaign-finance records show that he listed his employer as Fraud Guarantee, a Florida company that, according to its Web site, helps people “reduce the risk of fraud as well as mitigate the damage caused by fraudulent acts.”

This was just one of many business ventures with which Parnas, who has lived in Florida for many years, has been associated. Others involved stockbroking, bullion dealing, and film production. After Parnas was arrested, the Miami Herald described him as a “former stock broker who has left a long trail of debts in Florida and beyond.” The wife of one of his debtors, who is pursuing a legal judgement of five hundred thousand dollars against him, told the Herald, “He financially ruined us.”

Parnas comes across as something out of a Carl Hiaasen novel. But Grisham failed to point out that he isn’t just a random grifter the Feds lifted from the street. He is (or was) a close associate of Giuliani, Trump’s political ally and personal lawyer. He has visited the White House, where he had his picture taken not only with Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence but also with the President’s daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner. Parnas also attended Trump’s election-night victory party in 2016. Like Zelig, Parnas seems to pop up everywhere.

How did he obtain this sort of access? According to his account, he was a key player in Giuliani’s efforts last year to persuade the Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, to open an investigation into the Ukrainian gas company that employed Hunter Biden. He travelled to Kyiv and spoke with top Ukrainian officials. He communicated with two lawyers who have close connections to the Republican Party—Victoria Toensing and Joe DiGenova—and kept in constant contact with Giuliani. “I wouldn’t do anything without the consent of Rudy Giuliani or the President,” he told Maddow. “I have no intent—I have no reason to speak to any of these [Ukrainian] officials. I mean, they have no reason to speak to me. Why would President Zelensky’s inner circle or Minister Avakov or all these people . . . meet with me? Who am I? They were told to meet with me, and that’s the secret that they’re”—members of the Trump Administration—“trying to keep. I was on the ground doing their work.”
