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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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.

#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

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.

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

#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

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.
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.

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.
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.

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.
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.

Returns to Tempe after enjoying one of the greatest seasons by a
running back in school history. Record-setting sophomore season in

yards during his two seasons at Arizona State. Great vision and
footwork help him change direction quickly making him difficult to

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

#74 John Simpson- Clemson, OLG,
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.
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.
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.

#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
#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,
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
#71 Logan Stenberg- Kentucky, OG,
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
Notre Dame, FS, 5-10,
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,
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.
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.
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.
Ashtyn Davis- California, FS, 6-1, 200-
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.
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
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,
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,
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.
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.
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
#31 Javaris Davis- Auburn, CB,
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.
Bernard- Utah, LB, 6-1, 235-
Good job finding the RB in traffic. Needs to stack and shed
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,
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,
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,
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.
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.
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,
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.
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
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
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
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
#55 Jason Strowbridge- UNC, DL,
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.
