I'm really excited for this game because two of my favorite defensive players will be playing, both on different teams.

Phillip Thomas, FS - Fresno state

I posted a thread for Thomas a couple days ago. He's my favorite safety prospect right now, and though he's graded as a 3rd-4th rounder, I could see him making a serious push for the 2nd round. He just had everything you want out of your free safety, definitely worth the watch to see this kid play live.



Margus Hunt, DE - SMU

CBSsports deemed Hunt "the #1 freak athlete in college football". He is 6 foot 8, 280 pounds. Just a complete force on the D-line. Multi-sport athlete from Estonia. Holds the record for most blocked kicks with 17 all time. Also has 15 sacks and 25 TFL in his career. 4.7 forty yard dash speed.

Anyone else gonna be watching?

He is truly incredible. I would take him with our 4th rounder no doubt

Just saw an article on Yahoo Sports about Hunt. Dude looks like a freak of nature. Pair him with CJ, Hardy and Frank the tank and we're talking one hell of a DE rotation

Hunt will not pass the 3rd round. His draft stock is going up, then in the combine when he shows how much of an athlete he is, he'll be a 2nd round pick.

Liked Hunt last year. Hoped he'd be there in the later rounds. Be nice to have someone with a knack for blocking FGs. Still hope hes there in the fourth!

I see Hunt going in the 2nd if he is athletic and quick as people say.

He is a terror on the line imo

6-8, 280 and no fat
35 reps of 225
82 inch wingspan
36" vertical
4.7 40 yard dash
Just learning the game

After the combine, he will be a first rounder.

His speed really doesn't show on the field, almost looks kinda sluggish. Still could shoot up boards though like Poe.

Keep in mind he's from southern Methodist too..

I did not see the game, nor have I seen him play 1 down. However, he is raw and is new to football, according to what i have read. Right now, JJ Watts has the NFL looking for the next one. I would not be surprised to see him rocket up boards.
