A WHOLE PIE!

Greg Cosell & Doug Farrar podcasts are back, and they've got one up today which is a review of preseason performance. at the 27:40 mark of this link -

 

 

(if the player doodad doesn't work, then use this URL to listen in your browser - http://tinyurl.com/ok8bdsw )

 

the subject is Star Lotulelei and Kawann Short.  Both guys relate their draft evaluations of these players to how they performed in preseason action, most notably the Ravens game where they went full bore against mostly starters for a half and then some.

 

Cosell speaks about how 'nimble' Star is, and his positional versatility, and Farrar chimes in.

 

The discussion about Short is more about snap count in college versus NFL, and how that ties into evaluating draft prospects. Cosell wonders if Kawann can't be a very effective player playing 30-35 snaps per game to start.

 

short talk, but it's mostly positive and they've clearly watched at least the Baltimore game in detail.

Cosell is a guy who's opinion I value bc it is based on endless hours of tape and not so much on emotion or petiness.

He has a reoccuring segment now on the Mac Attack on Fridays where he will dive deeper into Panther film and look at specifics...

i agree with TN. Cosell is a game tape addict and so he knows his stuff.

Cosell is one of the best in the biz.

They went in depth about Short. Cosell thought he would prosper with around 30-35 snaps a game in a rotation as his flash plays will be more consistant.

Star got the he is the "new" type of DT that can play all positions on the line.


Lazy summary for the lazy ones who hate listening to anything.

Its a great podcast that I will listen to on the regular this season.

Short was an excellent get no matter how you slice it. We are set at DT for years to come.

He's going to be sending a lot of fans to the emergency room this season
