Tanner Lee- QB, 6-4, 218 Nebraska-
He was a surprise entry to the Senior Bowl, but he can spin it. He
was a guy that was a high school star and that stayed with him. When
he has a clean pocket he can hit his WR crossing in perfect
position. It is when things break down around him when there is
trouble. When he can step into the throw he can throw a guided
missile. Then the next pass can be wild. He only needs consistency
to make his mark in the NFL.
played on a terrible team. He threw to man INTs. He really struggled
last season. He also took a beating this season. He is one tough
kid, but he threw 37 INTs in college at Tulane and Nebraska. He has
Luke Falk- QB, 6-3.6, 211 Washington State-
He threw some great throws in practice. I think his floor is 64. If
he is on the boards the Pats will take him to end the 2nd. If BB
wants to continue coaching the Pats he has to get the next QB in
this Draft. I like Falk more than most because of his 2016 season.
His coach put a ton of pressure on him, and he showed some clutch
play, that wasn't Brady like, but it was close.
Baker Mayfield- QB, 6' .3". 216, Oklahoma-
He just can't be trusted. He showed up late to the Senior Bowl, and
was accused of trying to dodge the weight in. Then he said he had a
family issue, yet no one could really believed him. Though I do
believe he has a legit family crisis and had to see to it.
everyone questioned if he was telling the truth, because he has
shown to not be trustworthy. They weren't accusing him of lying. But
they did question whether they could believe him. He did nothing
wrong, but it became all about him and disrupted everything. That is
not the guy you want leading your Franchise.
Josh Allen- QB, 6-4.7, 237 Wyoming-
Nice touch throwing to the corner on the endzone. He struggled a
little with accuracy, but not as much as the haters said. One
problems is that he throws so hard that a lot of catchable balls
were dropped, because of his arm. Gallop just dropped one on the
sideline. He threw it so hard it went through his hands and bounced
off his shoulder pads like a rocket. He threw a beauty to Gesicki
crossing the goal line.
Michael Gallup- WR, 6-0.7, 198 Colorado State-
Great outside release. He knows how to get open on the 3rd level. He
can adjust to the off throw, and drift outside and still pulls it
in. He has a great extra gear on the 3rd level.
Allen Lazard- WR, 6-4.2, 227 Iowa State- He looked great, but then kept dropping the ball. Then he made an
elite catch high, through every kind of contact. He can catch it
over his shoulder in the corner of the endzone and tippity-tap his
feet inbounds for a TD. Nice hands over his head, which is so
important for him. His advantage in the NFL is his height and
length, and going up and grabbing the ball over the CB. He has a
nice power release. Knows how to get open outside.
DaeSean Hamilton- WR, 6-0.6, 202 Penn State-
He looked like he was running NFL routes, while all his teammates
were running college routes. He just kept running routes to get open
all week. He had a few drops early, but as the week went on and
practice went on his hands and competitiveness kept getting better.
ran patterns to get open all over the field against the North's
defenseless Corners. He looked NFL ready in practice. He took
everything the CBs gave him, and ran patterns to get open every
single time. He was the most impressive offensive player in drills.
Jaleel Scott- WR, 6-4.7, 216 New Mexico State-
He did a great job getting open on goal line drills. He has a nice
burst outside to free up his outside shoulder from the CB. Great
size. Needs to play in balance. He could be special if he puts it
Cedrick Wilson- WR, 6-1.7, 194 Boise State-
This is my guy. He is going to be a great player in the NFL (Pats
64;-). Knows how to get off the line, and has great speed outside.
Knows how to open. He runs patterns to get open. He knows how to get
his outside shoulder to get open outside. He can burst open on the
out. Nice hands reaching out for the ball thrown a little too far in
front of him. Great job going up and catching the ball through
Justin Watson- WR, 6-2.5, 213 Penn-
He really looks the part. He could be a legit NFL WR in a few years.
He had the catch of Thursday's practice. Going up and grab the ball,
one handed, in the corner of the endzone with a CB tackling him from
behind. He can get very physical in pattern, and break free and
catch the ball.
Braxton Berrios- WR, 5-8.5, 177 Miami-You
put him on the field and he gets open and catches it. He can take a
beating and keep on ticking. He can turn the CB around in route.
Great route runner. He looks little like Amendola to me.
Durham Smythe- TE, 6-5.2, 253 Notre Dame-
He doesn't have great speed, but he knows how to run patterns to get
open. He caught everything thrown to him at ND. He doesn't have the
speed to get open consistently, but when you throw it to him he
catches it. Plus, he is a great blocker in the run game and pass
turned DBs around in pattern at SB. Terrific catching the ball
through contact, which the slower TEs have to do. He caught
everything thrown to him in SB practice, even when he was tripled
Troy Fumagalli-TE, 6-4.7, 247 Wisconsin- He does not have a good burst off the snap. But when he gets going he
out physicals the Safety for the ball. He has some great quicks in
pattern. He can get wide open with a stutter step, and a sudden
Tyler Conklin- TE, 6-2.7, 252 Central Michigan-
He has a great release when the Safety tries to cover him. Nice
hands catching the ball. I really like this kid. He is a guy who a
team is going to be very happy with on Day Three.
Mike Gesicki- TE, 6-5.3, 242 Penn State- Smooth hands catcher. He has some quick feet in pattern. He can make
the DB miss in patterns with his feet. He kept going up and
alley-ooping the ball over DBs like they were his kids. He looked
like a man amongst boys in the end drills.
Akrum Wadley- RB, 5-9.7, 188 Iowa-
Phenomenal receiver out of the backfield. He has to add some weight.
He looks like a 3rd down back who can't block in pass pro. He can
spin around and do a 180 in the air to catch the ball thrown behind
him. Great screen runner. Am I seeing Kevin Faulk? He did make some
good blocks in pass pro in team drills, but he needs to get
Kalen Ballage- RB, 6-2.1, 222 Arizona State-
He is great in patterns. Terrific receiver out of the backfield, and
in the slot. Elite athlete. For a big back he is a great receiver
out of the backfield. Great hands catching away from his body. He
has a nice burst on the 3rd level. Am I seeing Justin Forte'?
Jaylen Samuels- RB, 5-11.4, 223 North Carolina State-
He makes LBs look foolish in coverage. He knows how to get open in
pattern. He is so nifty with the ball in his hands. And then he
collides with a DB, and the DB goes down. He is big strong and
tough, and when you match that with his speed and smarts you have
Dimitri Flowers- FB, 6-1.6, 253 Oklahoma-Smooth
and natural catching the ball. Knows how to get open. He can catch
the ball over the LB's shoulder. He has the ability to be a great
receiver out of the backfield, and I liked the way he ran at OK. He
just kept looking batter and better in receiving drills. DBs and LBs
couldn't come close to covering him in practice.
Mason Cole- OC, 6-4.2, 303 Michigan-
He secured the starting OC role. He is not a lot of flash and dash.
He is just a guy you stick into the lineup, and he starts without
noise for ten years. When he plays with good leverage he can really
move his feet well. He looks like a zone scheme Center to me. Maybe
a bigger Dave Andrews.
Scott Quessenberry- OC, 6-3.6, 314 UCLA- He has always left
me wanting more. He should be a Day Three pick who plays in the NFL
for ten years at OC.
Cole Madison- OG, 6-5, 307 Washington State-
Very impressed with him in SB practice. He could be a great Day
Three option for a lot of teams. He will develop into a good starter
for some lucky team.
Will Hernandez- OG, 6-2.4, 340 UTEP-
His ex-coach is now coaching the Broncos. He was great in the first
Pass Pro drill. He may have worked himself into the 1st with his
work in practice at SB. He dominated in the first pass pro drills at
SB, while his mates were getting killed. He just stoned some really
good DTs at the line.
Sean Welsh- OG, 6-2.3, 296 Iowa-
Welsh is an undersized OL, who can struggle against speed. He got
best up in pass pro drills, but he will always play better in team
situations. Justin Jones annihilated him with power in the Bullrush.
But I still think he is a Patriot on Day Three.
Wyatt Teller- OG, 6-4.4, 311 Virginia Tech-
He is a big bruiser. He struggles against speed. He is an inside OG
only, on a team that runs. The more he run blocks the better he
looks. He looks the part. Huge build. When he gets his hands on
rusher, and plays with leverage, he stones guys at the line.
Brett Toth- OT, 6-5.6, 303 Army-
His question is moving backwards. We know he can fire off the line
and dominate the run game. But can he protect the QB's blindside? He
has a two-year commitment to the Army, where he can work on his
kickslide. He has the athleticism, feet, and long arms to play OLT
in the NFL.
Tyrell Crosby- OT, 6-4.7, 319 Oregon-
He is a beast. A lot of
people think he is a 1st Round pick. I like him more in the 2nd. He
is not as smooth as I like moving backwards. But he gets to the
spot, and is help by his strength and balance. Great powerful hands
and power. He is a beast run blocking. He can block down on the DT
and collapse the inside of the line with him.
Brian O'Neill- OT, 6-6.4, 298 Pittsburgh-
Nice job turning and sealing the DE outside on short throws. He had
a lot of trouble with inside moves. He has the feet and hands, but
he has to get stronger. He will take a year or two to develop. He
has to get a stronger base moving backwards. He is an elite athlete
for an OT, he played Tight end (which old school coaches sees as
plus athletically), and basketball in high school. He has to
add strength to play OLT in the NFL. But in a year or two I think he
is a starter at OLT in the NFL. Which makes me wonder who will start
first at OLT in the NFL O-Neill or Toth?
Jamil Demby- OT, 6-4.5, 323 Maine-
He is a big guy. He moved backwards nicely. He plays well moving
laterally with this arms extended to stop the outside rusher. Not
sure he has the feet to play OLT in the NFL. He is a Day Three
developmental guy. Great strong hands. He might look to grab a
little too much. But that is his strength. He can lose his feet, get
out of balance, and over attack to the wrong side, but when he grips
shirt he looks great. He will need a year or two of development as
Levi Wallace- DC, 6-0.3, 176 Alabama-
He has that knack for sticking to the WR. He showed it in coverage
in drills against TE as well. He is as sticky a CB as there was at
the SB. I can't help thinking about him at 64 for the Pats. He has
the best ball skills of the three Alabama CBs. He made himself a
great player at Alabama. It seemed he made a play on the ball in
every rep in drills.
smart player. "Tremendous kid," Saban said. "When I
met first him he was like 6-foot, lucky to weigh 150 pounds. Just a
respectful young man. Did everything you asked." He also has
Chandon Sullivan- DC, 5-10.5, 190 Georgia State-
Looks like a Nickel. His coverage got stickier as the week went on.
WRs had to start making 2nd and 3rd moves to get open. He made some
money in practice. He has some suddenness in his shoulder. Now it is
a matter of speed as to where he gets drafted.
D'montre Wade- DC, 5-11.2, 201 Murray St.- Nice feet moving
backwards. Showed nice patience staying in front of the WR to take
him out of his pattern. Nice job staying with the first and second
move. Turned his back to the QB, and focused solely with staying
with the WR. He does a good job protecting the inside move first.
But can get knocked off stride on physical outside move
Danny Johnson- DC, 5-9, 182 Southern-
He needs a plan. Reacts a hair late. Played off against Washington,
so at least he's smart. Turns smoothly in press. But then jammed
late, and actually shoved the WR open outside. Then he was able to
use some interesting speed to catch up. Hot and cold Corner who I
liked as the week went on.
M.J. Stewart- DC, 5-10.5, 198 North Carolina-
Got a little grabbing early. Needs to trust his feet more. He
reminds me of Logan Ryan. He could be a great steal for the Pats in
the 4th. I am all in on this kid. But his speed will hurt him at the
Kameron Kelly- DC, 6-1.5, 195 San Diego State-
Likes to play Off. He is a converted Safety, and it showed a little.
But he is big and physical. Nice initial burst inside, but will get
high and loose WR on the second move outside. He has to show he has
the speed at the Combine. But he is a great athlete, and I don't
think that will be a problem .
Siran Neal- DC, 6', 206 Jacksonville St.- He can get very physical in coverage. Uses his hands too much. Turns
and runs smoothly. He has to stop grabbing so much shirt, and trust
his feet. He does a great job jamming the speed WR with his arms
extended at the line, and moving his feet, so he can't get off the
line. He stoned Washington at the line with a great double jam. He
has some nice size, and is as strong a corner as was at the SB.
Jeremy Reaves- S, 5-10.5, 204 South Alabama-
He can find the RB in the backfield. Not great in man coverage. He
broke his back in high school. "It was a freak thing,"
Reaves said. "I went up to catch a pick and I landed on my butt
and rolled over. Throughout the [next] week my back was giving me
problems. And the next game, it gave out on me. I could barely walk.
I went to the doctor the next day and they told me I had fractured
my L5 and my L6 vertebrae." So he is a bit of a medical risk.
had him play some press Corner in drills. He did a good job, but was
a little susceptible to the double move.
Tray Matthews- S, 6-0.3, 209 Auburn-
He made some plays on the ball in practice.
Quin Blanding- S, 6-2, 209 Virginia-
Big Strong Safety. I like him when I watched him at Virginia.
Ike Powel- lLB, 6-2.4, 244 Auburn-
Uchenna Nwosu- OLB, 6-2 245 USC-
He is similar to Okoronkwo. They
are both elite college edgerushers, with great production, but the
size doesn't fit. He is more try hard than explosive like Okoronkwo.
He is also as tough as it gets, and a team leader. He is better with
the inside move, and rushing inside. He is one of those guys that
you root for, but I'm just not sure he translates.
Shaquem Griffin- OLB, 6-0.2, 223 Central Florida-
He is the dude with only one hand. He has the quicks to turn the
corner on the blitzed. Tough not to root for him. But he is small,
and looks best moving forward as a rusher. But he just kept making
plays at the Senior Bowl. Very impressive quick twitch. He was the
quickest player on the field whenever he lined up. TMIWTMIL. He was
simply unstoppable in drills. It was one of the most incredible
things I have ever seen on the football field. But he only has one
hand, and I don't know what you do with that.
Marquis Haynes- OLB, 6-2.4. 233 Ole Miss-
He chewed up the small school guys in drills. He is a 4-3 OLB, but
is so natural rushing the passer. It can look like he is just toying
with the blockers. Great quick twitch move inside. He plays with
such great leverage that he beats up bigger blockers. He was great
in SB drills. He made OLs look slow and stupid in some drills. I
thought he had a bit of a down year, but I could not have been more
impressed with him at SB.
Darius Leonard- ILB, 6-2, 229 South Carolina St.-
He did a nice job in coverage. He can really run. He has the hands
to intercept the ball. He could be a four down LB. I like how he
moves on the field.
Dorian O'Daniel- ILB, 6-.4, 215 Clemson- Very small. He showed up at the SB the size of a FS. LBs have gotten
smaller, as coverage has become more important then stuffing the
run, but damn.
Tre' Williams-ILB, 6-1.6, 238 Auburn-
Very opportunistic ILB. He see it as well as
anyone. Get to the ball with his eyes as well as anyone. I really
like this kid. I like how he moves on the field in coverage.
Micah Kiser- ILB, 6-3, 236 Virginia-
Old school inside thumper. Teams will be looking for some thumpers
in this Draft, as the best running teams had the most success in the
Playoffs, as defenses have gone too far to pass defense schemes. So
he should go in Day Three at some point.
Da'Shawn Hand- DE, 6-3.6, 282 Alabama-
He was so quick and twitchy at the SB. He showed great power in
drills. Great Rip inside. Likes the spin-Rip. Loves to Rip all day
and night. You can really see his elite blend of size and
athleticism in one on one drills.
Marcus Davenport- DE, 6-5.7, 259, 34" Arms UTSAC- NFL guys
love this kid, and consistently put him in the top 16. He has some
nice length and burst. He is an all out all the time guy. Great
hands. Knows how to use his long arms. When he uses his hands he
looks like an NFL player. Nice double slap on outside arm of ORT. He
needs more moves.
I watch him play he had one move that he used to hit the QB against
smaller school competition. He is an elite physical talent, but he
has no idea what he is doing in the rush yet. He ran the arc for a
sack in team drills. He shot off the line like a rocket in a 2-Point
stance. They moved him inside on Day One, but he is an OLB not a
was an OLB in a two-point in college, and he can really run. "When
Marcus was little, he used to like to chase rabbits," his Dad
said. "He would always come close and almost catch them."
Too often grabs blockers rather then tries to
shed them, and get past them.
has so much potential that it is frustrating how he deals with
blockers sometimes. Right now he is an inside rusher only, (he
pushes the OTs back, and then break inside of them to the QB). But
if he can learn to use his hands, and find a rip, dip, or rip and
dip, he could be special.
Kylie Fitts- DE, 6-3., 259 Utah-
Nice burst upfield. He will fight around the ORT, and hit the QB
from behind on an extended arc. Excellent spin move inside. He had a
great week of practice. He may have worked his way into the 4th. He
looked like he belonged from day one.
Poona Ford- DT, 5-11.5, 306 Texas-
He keeps getting under blockers and driving them backwards. He was
the first guy I ever saw get Bozeman off balance and off his feet.
He is just an outlier that it is impossible to say where he goes. He
has the physical traits of an undrafted free agent, but he plays and
produces like a 1st Round Pick. He dug under every OL they put in
front of him. He was one of the funest players to watch this week.
Christian LaCouture- DT, 6-4, 329, LSU-
He has nice power and a quick burst inside. He looked more like a
one-gapper in practices. More of a one-move player now. Just tries
to get a shoulder and power or rips through it. He knows how to ride
the OG's shoulder into the QB.
Greg Gilmore- DT, 6-3.7, 318 LSU-
He can get to the QB with second and third effort. He has a good
first step moving laterally. He has the agility to try and spin back
when caught. He surprised me with his quicks and suddenness. He had
a great week, and looked like a Day Two DL. I don't think he looked
that way at LSU. He needs to show that same effort in the game.
Andrew Brown- DT, 6-3, 294 Virginia-
All out hustle guy. He will get stoned and beat the blocker with a
second or third move. Nice size and quicks.
Isaac Yiadom- DC, 6-0.7, 187 Boston College-
Showed well in coverage. Doesn't trust his speed. He played a lot of
Off at Senior Bowl. He is as smart and tough as you want a CB. He is
a Day Three sleeper who will be a starting DB at Corner or FS for a
long time in the NFL.
Michael Joseph- DC, 6-0.5, 186 Dubuque Division III-
He has some nice size. Tough and quick. Great quick feet. He has
some twitch turning and running downfield. He played in that
sidesaddle technique. Nice job coming off his man, and going and
tackling the ball carrier catching it underneath him. Nice physical
tackler. He is a tough kid. Excellent COD mirroring WR, with his eye
on the QB. Great quick feet. His Forty will decide where he is
Duke Dawson- DC, 5-10, 208 Florida-
He showed up very well at the Senior Bowl. He is like King from last
year. He has everything you want in a Corner except great speed. He
is a smart a CB who has ever play at the SB. He reads the route and
looks like he is out of position, and then the WR cuts right into
him. They will draft him as a FS, and play his at Corner.
Darius Phillips- DC, 5-9.6, 188 Western Michigan-
He can leap over the WR on the 3rd level and knock the ball down.
Great athlete. He can play the ball in the air, and had an INT
against Michigan State. He came off his man when he saw the QB
throw, and leaped up over the WR and stole the ball. Terrific job
staying in front of the slant, and punching the ball out. He is an
excellent kick returner, who will make any team on special teams. He
can protect the sideline, and rip the ball out when the RB tries to
power over him.
was truly dominate against Mich ST. He had a 100-yard kick return
for a TD and a 50-yard kick return, 3 PBU (the 3rd one caused the QB
to run down and tell at his WR), an INT, and he caused a fumble (by
ripping the ball out of the RB's hands), and returned that fumble
recovery for a TD, and a pick Six.
Taron Johnson- DC, 5-11, 189 Weber State-
He might be a Nickel, but he is tough tackler against the run. He
was primarily the left Corner. Nice job weaving through traffic to
tackle the WR on the bubble screen. He can hit the WR, and rip the
ball out. He will get overaggressive sometimes when the WR catches
the ball in front of him. Great COD moving forward out of petal to
burst forward make the play. He can make a play on the ball on the
DC, 6-0.4, 182 South Carolina-
Great athlete. He can sky up and grab the high INT like a basketball
player. Nice job slipping off
coverage, and slicing in front of the WR, and then leaping in front
of him to snag the INT. He has some clutch in him. He likes to trail
under the WR, and not the side. He can get very physical at the line
in the jam. He loves to leap and play the ball in the air.
DC, 6'.5, 192, Penn
State- He has some great
quicks and strength in coverage. He can play it rough. He is a good
blitzer off the edge. He can find the RB in traffic. He can get beat
bad on play action, when the WR stutter steps like he is going to
block. Nice job protecting the sideline.
can fight through the FB, and tackle the RB. He is a force against
the run. He might be a FS. He can get so focused on the run that he
forgets the WR. Great feet at LOS in press. When he gets low and
mean he looks really good moving backwards in petal. I love his
movement skills. He is better against the run than the pass. He
turns and run well with the WR, and can stop and turn with his with
great quicks and physicality.
Armani Watts- S, 5-10.4, 191 Texas A&M-
Great speed, but can get beat up by TEs in coverage. He struggled
one on one against TEs. He recovered later in drills. Very
aggressive with his hands in coverage. He looked worse in drills
than he did in games at A&M.
Marcus Allen- S, 6-2, 215 Penn State-
He showed some abilities to cover in the box. Nice knack for hitting
the TE when he wants to make his break He will give up the inside
sometimes. Great athlete. Great hitter.
Trayvon Henderson- S, 6', 204 Hawaii-
He got beat by Gesicki inside. He can leap up and play the ball in
the air. He can absorb the push off, and still one-hand snag the
ball. When he reads it right he can really stick to the TE
in coverage. Inconsistent playing the ball in the air.
Kyzir White- S, 6-2.1, 216 West Virginia-
He is a little too physical in coverage. But he can run with TE all
over the field. He competes in coverage. He is as physical as it
gets in the box. He is the best hitting DB in this Draft. He is a
strong safety they were trying to make into a free safety at SB. It
didn't work in practice.
Ja'Whaun Bentley- ILB, 6-1.5, 252 Purdue-
He is good in the zone drop. He can play the QB's eyes and shifty to
the side the QB's eyes are locked onto. Nice athlete who can leap up
and snag the high INT in front of the WR slanting. Great speed in
the open field to return the INT for a TD. He is a good blitzer up
the gut. Good hitter. He can cover the tight end down the field.
Makes plays in coverage, and has multiple interceptions.
ILB, 6-2.7, 243 North Dakota State-
He can read the play instantly, and get out and get the RB on the
ground. He is a good blitzer up the gut. He looks like a special
teams guy to me.
ILB, 5-11.2, 227 The Citadel-
He can fill the hole with impact. Nice form tackler. Great hitter
from the side. He can read the toss, and get outside quickly. He can
cover the RB sneaking out of the backfield. When he sees the hand
off, he can destroy the RB inside. He looks like a special teams
maven to me.
ILB, 6-3.4, 235 Brigham Young-
He can look a little small to protect the edge. Looks like a Will.
Reads it quick, and can flash across the box to tackle the RB on the
other side. Make more plays downfield than upfield. Better in
coverage than run defense. Nice job covering the TE on the seam.
Terrific covering Ins into the box. He looked like a limited 3rd
down cover LB to me.
ILB. 6-1.1, 241 Michigan-
He is not as big as advertised. Not the quickest guy. He is another
ILB who is better in coverage than the run. Very physical bursting
through tacklers. Quick in coverage. When he sees the handoff he
gets to the RB. Good in zone drop. Not afraid to stick his nose in a
pile. Tries to run around blocks rather than take them on. Not good
taking on blockers.
Garret Dooley- OLB, 6-1.7, 248 Wisconsin-
Nice blitzer off the edge. He can get to the QB. He
is fast into the backfield. He can drive the ORT into the QB. When
the QB takes off, he can shed the ORT, and sack the QB. He was
making a lot of plays against North Western. He
did rush drills with the DLs. It didn't go well.
Kemoko Turay- OLB, 6-4.3, 252 Rutgers-
He was a twitchy surprise to me. OLs could stay with his speed on
the edge. He was burning ORT's like they were marshmallows on a
stick. He showed he could be a pure speed rusher. I wanted the Pats
to draft him by Thursday. But he still has a ton of questions.
has great natural bend and arc agility. He looked like the best pure
speed rusher at the SB. He ran around the ORT, and then swooped into
the QB almost effortlessly in drill. His ability to bend and turn is
the most interesting aspect of his traits. His ability to counter
his speed with a nice fast and strong Rip impressed me more. I love
how he slaps at hands and arms, as he bends and runs the arc.
Dewey Jarvis- OLB, 6-2, 236 Brown-
He looked like he never dropped into coverage at Senior Bowl. He can
be in great position and not be able to play the ball in the air.
Ogbonnia Okoronkwo- DE, 6-1.3, 243 Oklahoma-
Elite passrusher who doesn't have the size to do it in the NFL. I
was a little disappointed with his performance. I wanted to see him
move backwards. He was great moving forward in practice all week.
But we knew that. He needed to show what he could do moving
backwards in coverage. What if he is too small to stay on the line?
Can he cover? Can he learn to cover like Van Noy? And Van Noy was
bigger in college. We don't know. He is amazing getting the edge
against a much bigger OLT.
Tyquan Lewis- DE, 6-2.6, 276 Ohio State- He looked more explosive and twitchy in one on one drills. When you
add that to his great heavy hands you have something special. He
could be in the 1st after what I saw at the SB practice.
Chad Thomas- DE, 6-5, 277 Miami-
Jalyn Holmes- DE, 6-4.6, 279 Ohio State- Most underrated edge guy from last season. He has knack for finding
the ball in the backfield. And not just the QB, but RBs as well. He
was primarily a stand up rusher, and then showed up at the Senior
Bowl at 280-pounds. I don't know what to do with that. He is the
most underrated player in this Draft. They lined him up at 4-tech
and he beat Welsh like a drum.
Nathan Shepherd- DT, 6-3.7, 310 Fort Hays State, Division II-
He hurt his hand in practice. His legend has become that he was the
best DT down there before he hurt his hand. He will be able to
participate in the Combine. He will be drafted, and maybe as early
as the 4th.
Justin Jones- DT, 6-2.3, 311 North Carolina State-
Great straight-arm Bullrush. I wish he played like he did in drills
during the season. He is a great physical specimen. He really looks
the part. He can stuff the run at DT.
Harrison Phillips- DT, 6-3.3, 303 Stanford-
The more he played in drills the better he looked. He is a live
wire. He reads the play, and uses his long arms to keep himself
alive, then goes and gets the ball carrier.
B.J. Hill- DT, 6-3.3, 321 North Carolina State-
Amazing quick spin move inside. He is a phenomenal in drills
at the SB. Not as dominate at NC ST. Phenomenal athlete when
struggled in college when he had to read. He really looked the part.
He was elite in one on one drills, but didn't find the ball as
easily in games. He is a great physical specimen.
Kyle Lauletta- QB. 6-2.5, 217 Richmond-
Struggled in goal line drills as well. The North QBs are so superior
to the South QBs that I don't know how the South wins. He came back
a little with a nice Corner throw to 16. Made a nice throw on a
crossing pattern on 7 on 7s, but it would have made it over the
lines if the OLs and DLs were in. He showed some juice on throws in
11 vs 11. Hit the RB over the middle and then spiked the ball in
two-minute drill. He seems to have a good head on his shoulders
Though he did keep going over the middle.
Kurt Benkert- QB, 6-2.5, 214 Virginia-
He showed some nice toughness in the Endzone. He can throw the short
touch throw to the big WR. Then a bad throw. The South QBs really
struggled in drills against the South defense. Nice read throw to
Brandon Silvers- QB, 6-2.3, 224 Troy-
He dropped the ball in two-minute drill, and then picked it up and
completed the pass. I thought that was a great play. I like to judge
QBs when everything is going wrong, and not when everything is going
great. He likes to throw to the RB over the middle. Nice job
avoiding the rush, and then throwing to the WR on the 3rd level.
This kid has something.
Mike White- QB, 6-4.1, 221 Western Kentucky-
He showed some bad accuracy on short throws in the Endzone. He has
the cannon, but not the finesse. He can throw accurately with
pressure on his side and behind him. He still lets the ball get away
from him, when he tries to take a little heat off the ball. He ran
one of those wacky spread offenses, and he threw the ball all over
the place at a very fat pace. So you know he has some smarts. But
those guys have a tough time translating.
J'Mon Moore- WR, 6-2.5, 209 Missouri-
Great one foot break. Great speed with the ball in his hands.
Struggled with some drops in practice. He is as quick lightning. He
has great suddenness in pattern. If his hands are good, he is an NFL
Byron Pringle- WR, 6-1. 201 Kansas State-
Great quicks. This guys is as quick in patterns as any WR at the SB.
He exploded inside in one pattern, and then broke back outside and
left the CB flatfooted. Very nice hand slap to chop the CBs hands
off his shirt. He can make the great adjustment to the ball thrown
behind him. Nice hands extending out to catch the ball way away from
his body. I really like this kid.
Marcell Ateman- WR, 6-4.2, 216 Oklahoma State-
He showed more quickness in pattern at SB than I saw at OK ST. He
was a baseball player, who came back to college. He has the size and
really looks like the part. But seems to lack concentration
D.J. Chark- WR, 6-2.5, 196 LSU-
He runs patterns to get open. I was surprised at how well he ran
patterns at SB. Great lateral burst on outside cuts. Great
inside-out double move that left CBs in the dust. He has everything
you want physically from a WR, but something it just seems something
is missing. He made a lot of money in drills. He was catching every
as the week went on. They couldn't cover him on Day 3.
James Washington- WR, 5-10.7, 210 Oklahoma State-
He was timed with the highest speed at 21.25 MPH at SB. He is an
elite athlete. I heard some guys say he wasn't a great athlete, But
he was timed as the fastest player at the Senior Bowl. He was a star
in high school in track, tennis, and football. If that is a great
athlete than I don't know what is. Plus, he was the best deep threat
in the FBS the past two years.
Tre'Quan Smith- WR, 6-1.5, 202 Central Florida-
It was ridiculous that Central Florida gave themselves a made up
National Championship, it was positively Trumpian. However, I was
very impressed with all the Central Florida players at the Senior
Rashaad Penny- RB, 5-11, 224 San Diego State-
I really like this kid. He is going to be a Day Three steal. He has
a great burst to the second level when he gets a lane. Great speed
RB, who doesn't get caught from behind. He also returns kicks. He
was the offense player of the year, and special teams player of the
year for SDSU. He is also strong and a tough inside runner.
Darrel Williams- RB, 5-11, 229 LSU-
I thought he had a better season than Guice. When he was in the LSU
offense worked better. Huge powerful thigh that make it very
difficult to take him down. Great suddenness with the ball in his
hands. He looked bigger than the FB when they lined up. He is also a
good receiver out of the backfield. I'd take Williams in the 3rd
over Guise in the 1st any day of the week, and twice on Sunday.
Ito Smith- RB, 5-9, 201 Southern Mississippi-
Nice blocker in pass pro. He has to be a great blocker in pass pro,
because he looks like a 3rd down back to me. Knows how to use his
blocker. Shows some patience behind his big O. He can catch the ball
on the 2nd level. He showed he could block a little in pass pro in
practice. I like this kids toughness block for his QB.
Nick Bawden- FB, 6-1.7, 244 San Diego State-
Terrific job in pass pro. He can step on the field and block on 3rd
down right now.
Ian Thomas- TE, 6-3.3, 256 Indiana-
He knows how to get open with physical play. I was really impressed
with all the TE down here. He is another guy who is going to be a
great pick on Day Three.
Adam Breneman- TE, 6-4, 241-
Great receiver, but I just can't get past his terrible blocking.
Jordan Akins- TE, 6-3.2, 246 Central Florida-
He can catch through all kinds of contact. Terrific physical player.
When it gets tough and physical he wins. He has some juice blocking.
This guy can really move on the field. He can get open in pattern.
If he can block consistently he could be something special at tight
Dallas Goedert- TE, 6-4.4, 260 South Dakota St.-
This kid was very impressive. He will make a great Day Three pick.
Austin Corbett- OC, 6-4, 310 Nevada-
He moved inside to OC at Senior Bowl. He made some money. He looked
excellent at OC. He was able to get low and stuff the stocky guys.
He has great size. Very strong inside. He has to stay low. He also
lined up at OLG. He is going to switch inside in the NFL, like
Bradley Bozeman- OC, 6-4.5, 317 Alabama- He just stays low and wide, grabs shirt, and moves his feet. He is so
tough to beat. Great job grabbing the shirt with the big DT tries to
cross his face, and once he is clamped on the rush is done.
Austin Golson- OC, 6-4.5, 310 Auburn-
He played some ORG in practice. He can hold his base while getting
punched in the face.
Skyler Phillips- OG, 6-2.4, 314 Idaho State-
He played ORG. Got to the ILB on run to the other side. He got his
hands on the big DT, and washed so far outside the QB that he hit
the ORT protecting the edge from the DE. Then he stoned him on an
inside move to the other side.
Taylor Hearn- OG, 6-4.5, 319 Clemson-
He looked like he earned a start with the first team in team drills.
He played OLG. He can get outside to the second level and seal the
OLB. He can over lean in pass pro, and fall down. He has to stay
patent in pass pro.
Colby Gossett- OG, 6-4.6, 304 Appalachian State-
Good base. He was a little behind in first practice. He has some
quick feet and hands. He does a good job getting his hands on the
rusher first. He knows how to hold on and not let the blocker get
Isaiah Wynn- OG, 6-2.4, 308 Georgia-
He lined up at ORG to start the practices at Mobile. Knows how to
use his arms. Nice recovery. He has the suddenness to cut off the
strong inside move, after he get beat a little. He moved over to ORG
as well. He dominated Hand in their first rep. He grabbed his shirt,
turned as Hand tried to dip, and then shoved him to the ground with
some interesting violence. He looked better at OLG than OLT, and I
though he has a chance at OLT (before I saw he was 6-2.
was spectacular in practice in pass pro drills. He is a 1st Round
OLG, who can also be an emergency OLT like Mankins. Great power
Joe Noteboom- OT, 6-5, 306, TCU-
He has some quick feet. Understands position and how to use his
hands. He looks like a legit prospect to me. He is probably an ORT.
Brandon Parker- OT, 6-7.2, 303 North Carolina A&T-
He certainly has the length, but he struggles with outside speed.
Nice power step inside. His school said he did not give a Sack at
A&T. Great twitch outside moving backwards off the snap. He has
some interesting quicks moving backwards. He has to stay and play
lower. He would beat the rusher to the spot, but let him get under
him, and got jacked. But he did a good job holding on, and barely
balance and base. He can really move his feet, and not get himself
Alex Cappa- OT, 6-5.5, 299 Humboldt State-
He was a killer amongst boys at Humboldt. Not sure he has the feet.
But he has the upper body strength. Great heavy hands that he uses
to punch and grab at the same time. They played him at OLT and ORT.
Not used to the quickness yet. He gave up the inside gate to Haynes
like he was his daddy. He has to keep his feet moving. He stops
moving his feet sometimes. Level of Comp was showing early at SB.
When he grabs rushers he can use great hip torque to toss them off
balance with his powerful hands.
