The NFL Draft Has Begun. Really! Pay Attention!

By TOM

2. Drafting Patriots- Oh my goodness the Shrine game is here. NFL Channel at 3:PM. The Shrine Game is the key to Understanding Day Three..

East Offense:

#1 Riley  Ferguson- QB, Memphis, 6-4, 210- Very productive QB who can take hit, and dominated against much better teams. Could be a nice option for the Pats on Day Three. The Pats will definite be looking for a developmental back up in this Draft. He is a winner.

#9 Quinton Flowers- QB, South Florida, 6', 210- Great talent at QB. I love how he plays the game. However, he is awfully small. It is very tough to play QB at his size.

#16 JT Barrett- QB Ohio State, 6-2,  222- Very tough and smart option QB. I like this kid a lot. He has some great clutch in him, and no one takes a hit better then he does. But he is just too inconsistent throwing the ball tight now. Nice 3 to  year developmental Day Three QB.

 

#35 Ray Lawry- Old Dominion, 5-10, 203-

#7, Ralph Webb- Vanderbilt, 5-10, 202- Interesting Day Three RB who has a chance. He is good receiver out of the backfield. He pick up the LB in pass pro.

Earned start in the offensive backfield in every game, running his consecutive starts streak to a remarkable 49 games... As senior, posted 831 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns, and 188 receiving yards and a touchdown on 13 catches.

#23 Johnson   D'Ernest- RB, South Florida, 5-10, 208- Very small RB who has an uphill climb to get Drafted.

#81 Jester Weah- Pittsburgh, 6-3, 210- I like this kid. He could be an interesting Day Three option for the Pats. He has great speed to go with his great size. I love the way he high points the ball.

#10 Daurice Fountain- WR Northern Iowa, 6-1, 210- He made the most money at the Shrine game. I have not seen him play, but a little birdie said he was the WR who garnered the most interest from teams. If there is a call up to the Senior Bowl for a WR he could get it. He can catch the ball away from his body. Nice speed with the ball in his hands. Carries the ball too low. Goes up over small school DBs to snag the ball, like they are children. Nice job getting open in pattern.

#5 DaeSean  Hamilton- WR, Penn State, 6-1, 206- Terrific athlete and WR. He has some clutch in him, and some great hands. If the Pats are looking for a WR on Day Three I would vote for him.     

#25 Justin Watson- WR, Pennsylvania, 6-3, 225   Small school WR who is huge. He garnered 1,115-yards and 8 TDs on 89 catches. Hewas 1st Team all Ivy this season and last season. "I am thankful for the opportunity to represent Penn one more time at the Shrine Game," Watson said. "My coaches and teammates have all helped me become the player I am and have helped put me in the position to play at the next level. I look forward to this challenge and taking the next step in my football career." He will get a lot of looks on Day Three.

#83 Regis Cibasu- WR, Montreal, 6-3, 232- Another mystery WR who a little birdie told e is going to get Draft higher than you think. I love how he goes after the ball. He doesn't wait for it, he goes up and gets it. His size is a huge bonus. He is an NFL player.

 

#50 Tony Adams- OG North Carolina State, 6-2, 315- 

#57 Austin Kuhnert- North Dakota State, 6-4, 304            

#75 Jaryd  Jones-Smith- OG, Pittsburgh, 6-7, 320- Saw him play a couple of times, and I would take him on Day Three no sweat. He is an NFL OG.

#70 Connor Hilland- OG, William & Mary, 6-6, 303-

#64 Brian Allen- OC Michigan State, 6-2, 302- Terrific OC with size issues.

#71 Brad Lundblade- OC, Oklahoma State, 6-3, 300         

#62 KC McDermott- OLT, Miami, 6-7, 300- He has the size and feet to play OLT in the NFL. Great job keeping his hangs high and tight. He does a good job keeping his hands inside. He could be an interesting Day Three developmental OLT.

#73 Austin Golson- OT, Auburn, 6-5, 314- 

             

 #82 Ethan Wolf- TE, Tennessee, 6-6, 245- He has to prove he can block first. A scout created some controversy by saying: "(you will not see a TE) "block as bad as Ethan Wolf", "(that he) avoids contact", he's "is one of the softest players I’ve seen on film." That I not good

And through all the controversy his allies didn't really defend him. "Is Wolf the most physical tight end that I’ve seen in college football? No," a former SEC OL Cubelic said. "There aren’t many physical tight ends anywhere in college football anymore. I make sarcastic comments all the time when I see tight ends actually block somebody that he’s actually a dinosaur of a college football player. Those guys aren’t really asked to do that a lot. There aren’t a lot of tight ends that put their hand on the ground next to an offensive tackle and are asked to get movement at the point of attack." But he can go up and snag the ball, and can hurt you after the catch.

#86 Damon Gibson- TE, MSU Moorhead, 6-4, 236- He was a game changer on the small school level. "Teams know about him, so they've got their best guys on him and they game plan their coverages around him," Moorhead HC Steve Laqua said. "The fact that he's statistically done what he's done this year I think is impressive. It's tough to duplicate the numbers he had last year." He has a chance to go on Day Three.

 

#27 Drew Brown- KR, Nebraska, 5-11, 200-

West Defense:

Okay, I have to go coach Basketball and sell Girl Scout Cookie (that's right I'm a proud Girl Scout dad;). And of course go grocery shopping. So DVR the Shrine Game, and I will get the West team side up as soon as possible.

East Defense:

#3 Deatrick Nichols- CB, South Florida, 5-10, 189- Small guy who looks like a Nickel to me. He is tough and has shown he can cover bigger WRs. Does a good job bumping the WR off his route. He can play off and Bump and Run.

#4 DeVonta Delaney- CB, Miami, 6-1, 193- He went to college at the Citadel, where he was an All-American his last season at the Citadel. He garnered 6 INTs and 8 PBU. He was a graduate transfer to Miami in 2017. He has excellent speed. He also has a lot of experience at CB (36 game at the Citadel).

#14 Avonte Maddox- CB, Pittsburgh, 5-9, 180- Another little nickel corner. He is tough kid who can also blitz the QB.

#15 Grant Haley- CB, Penn State, 5-9, 190- He is a tough little Corner, who plays excellent run defense. He played outside at Penn State against a lot of good WRs. He will make a team on special team, I think he can develop into a good Nickel Corner.

#31 Brandon Facyson- CB, Virginia Tech, 6-2, 197- I really like this kid. He is one of my guys. East-West kids are usually taken on Day Three. He could be a steal for the Pats on Day Three. Nice speed to chase the RB down, 50-yards downfield. He can shut guys down in straight up man. Very interesting CB.

#32 Tre Flowers- FS, Oklahoma State, 6-3, 200- He is another one of my guys. I love the way this kid plays. I don't think the Pats need another Safety (but if he is there in the 2nd Round;). Watch this kid, because he can play. If he is there on Day Three the Pats should take him.

#11 Tracy Walker- FS, Louisiana-Lafayette,  6-2, 200- Terrific tackler who might be a SS on the next level. He only had 2 INTs last season, but 97 Tackles. Terrific small school athlete, who is tough and mean in the run game.

17 Damon Webb- FS, Ohio State, 5-11, 195- Webb can play. He flies up fast when he has the inside slot WR to knock him down. He can get a hand on the ball when the TE catches it going down the seam. He is a FS who can make plays on the ball, and cover WR and TE in the slot.

20 Trey Marshall- SS, Florida State, 6', 217- Big Safety, who can still move on the field. He pumped up 10-pound this past year. A lot of experience playing Cover Two. He can hit the outside WR, right after he catches it outside on the 3rd level. I like how he moves on the field. They will line him up like an LB, and have him blitz. Fierce hitter coming up to smash the RB out of bounds on Tosses. He lined up in Cover One, but could get himself out of position sometimes. Usually excellent in position, especially as the last line of defense.

21 Jamar Summers- FS, UConn, 6', 190- Terrific free safety prospect. He played Corner early in his career, but struggle with instincts outside in coverage. He looked like he was more instinctual at FS. He has the athleticism to play CB in the NFL, and that is a great asset at FS. He might be the best FS prospect for stepping into the Slot, and covering the Slot guy.

#2 Jordan Martin- FS, Syracuse, 6-3, 206- Career Overview: Joined the Orange in 2017 as a graduate transfer from Toledo … Played in 42 games during his career, including eight at Syracuse ... Started 14 games at cornerback for Toledo and five games at safety for the Orange … Invited to the 2018 East-West Shrine Game ... Totaled 99 tackles and 14 pass breakups during his four seasons … Redshirted the 2015 season after suffering a torn ACL ... One letter.

Senior Year (2017): Saw action in eight games, starting five at free safety ... Missed the last four games after undergoing season-ending surgery on his wrist ... Recorded 25 (17 solo) tackles, three pass breakups and forced a fumble.

 

#30 Parris Bennett- LB Syracuse, 6', 216- He is really a little guy, but he is a great hitter. Very aggressive LB with speed. He will make any team that drafts him, as a special teams Maven. He looked like he was made to play special team in the NFL.

34 Jacob Pugh- LB Florida State, 6-4, 240- Long lean linebacker who is as troubling as he is interesting. Only played in 8 games this season.

2017: Coming off a spring MVP honor, appeared in 10 games and started six….totaled 19 tackles, one TFL, two PBU and a fumble recovery….opened the season against No. 1 Alabama with four tackles…followed up his performance with a tackle for loss against NC State…came away with a season-high six tackles on a Friday night at Boston College…recovered a fumble against rival Florida he returned 16 yards for a touchdown, the third fumble recovery and first touchdown of his career.

#40 Jason Cabinda- ILB, Penn State, 6-1, 234- Typical Penn State LB. But he is a small guy. He probably has to prove it on special teams first. But there is no question he made the Penn ST defense better. Great at filling the hole and finding the RB. Slides over to the slot in coverage nicely. Penn States leading tackle who is a great ILB moving forward.

#44 D.J. Palmore- LB, Navy, 6-3, 236- He is an option for the Pats, because he played at Navy. Tough as nails, and great in the run game. He has good size, and looked like an NFL player to me. 

#45 Chris Worley – LB, Ohio State, 6-2, 230- He is another one of my guys. He was better in the rush, and is playing behind his eyes ten times better than last season. He had terrible eyes last season. Excellent in coverage against RBs. Sneaky good athlete. He flies up fast to hit the RB coming out of the backfield fast. I just love the way he is moving on the field this season. Made checks and calls this season. He will still take a misstep or two sometimes. But is a much smarter player.

 

#33 Marcus Martin- DE Slippery Rock, 6-2, 255- Nice hands. He has great quick hands in the rush. Nice job protecting the edge against the scrambling QB. They will double him on runs, and he can split the OLT and TE. He can set the edge against the ORT with leverage and a straight arm, and then torque him aside. Plays position well on the edge against the Option. He can get over powered by the ORT at the point. Terrific technique moving upfield. 

92 Curtis Cothran- DE, Penn State, 6-5, 301- Interesting run stuffer. Might get drafted by a 3-4 team as a 5-Tech. He has some passrusher in him. He had a big Sack against Michigan. He also hit Barrett against Ohio State, but it was past the LOS.

97 Dalton Keene- Illinois State, 6-4, 275- I have heard good things about his kid, but I haven't seen him play. "From the moment I got to the hotel the experience has been unbelievable," Keene stated. "The Shriners Hospital visit was by far my favorite part. Meeting the kids and their parents was truly life changing and humbling. Being a collegiate athlete is something only few of us are given the opportunity to experience, and sometimes we take it for granted. People look up to us because we do what they dream of doing, and it was a surreal experience for sure. Forming relationships with those kids and the guys who were selected to play in the game is something that I'll never forget."

99 Chad Thomas- DE, Miami, 6-6, 275- This is another one of my guys. I would gladly take him on Day Three. A little surprised he is in the Shrine (which means they look at him as a Day Three Pick). He can be unblockable sometimes on the edge. Rushes from the inside as well. He has elite size for a DE. If BB wants a DE, this is a guy he could steal at 96.

 

90 Parker Cothren- DT, Penn State, 6-4, 304- 2017: One of eight players to be a part of three-straight seasons with a shutout (Illinois, 2015; at Rutgers, 2016; Akron, 2017), marking the longest such streak since a three-year span from 1989-91...Part of a defense that logged a season-opening shutout for the first time since 2007 (FIU, 59-0). Pittsburgh (9/9): Logged two stops. Georgia State (9/16): Made a pair of tackles...A part of a unit that posted its second shutout of the season, marking the first time since 2009 a Nittany Lion defense posted two shutouts in a single season. at Iowa (9/23): Had one solo tackle. Indiana (9/30): Totaled four tackles...Recovered a third-quarter fumble, which was forced by Marcus Allen, for his first career fumble recovery. at Northwestern (10/7): Made three tackles. Michigan (10/21): Made four tackles...Logged a solo quarterback takedown in the fourth quarter...Part of a defense that held the Wolverines scoreless over the final 40:03 of the game... Part of an defensive line that earned the coaching staff's Defensive Player of the Week. at Ohio State (10/28): Totaled one tackle. at Michigan State (11/4): Posted three stops...Added one quarterback hurry. Rutgers (11/11): Registered two tackles. Nebraska (11/18): Had one tackle...Combined with Shareef Miller on a first-quarter stop behind the line of scrimmage. 

93 Folorunso Fatukasi- DT, UConn, 6-4, 303- It seemed the more he played at UConn the worse he looked. He has NFL size and athleticism, but has to show it in this game if he wants to get drafted.

#96 Kentavius Street- North Carolina State, 6-2, 287- If doesn't make it won't be for lack of trying. Benches 500-pounds squats 700-pounds. Nice burst into the double team, and he can pop the OC and OLG back. He looks like a guy could play some 5-Tech in the NFL.

West Offense:

 

 

Be A Citizen! Not a Subject! 

Fascist is as Fascist does. Beware American. President Jerkballs is pulling the cowardly republican Senate closer and closer to the cliff.

Amendment I. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances:

 

The 1st Amendment to the Constitution is the greatest paragraph ever written by mankind. It is the truest diagram of how to ensure a free Country of citizens survives. But is is also a list of what to attack when you want to be a fascist dictator. President Jerkballs is attacking every article in the 1st Amendment. Beware suckers, or you will be subjugated:
