Drafting Michigan skill players is usually not a good idea.

 

But drafting Michigan linemen often is.

Watched the whole 1st season on Netflix last year. Two episodes into the second season and I lost interest. I'm still curious how the heck they did 4 seasons of that show.

I actually enjoyed the last season, it tied up all loose ends nicely.

If Bell was an undrafted free agent we should be able to find a solid right tackle in round 3 or 4. Our scouts just have to dig and do their job... Find the diamond in the ruff.

If Seattle can have the best secondary in the league starting a 5th and sixth round cornerback we can find a Hog Mollie in the 4th round.

I hated the way they killed him off on Prison Break.

They never let the good guys survive :(

I coached OL for a very good high school team.  I know a little about fundamentals--there is more about the pro game that I don't get.  Having prefaced this with that, here is my take on this guy:

 

He has been well coached. He manages to maintain a wide base and keeps his shoulders square.   I saw him (in the Mich St game) get 2 negative grades and about 5 positive grades--that is strong.  He made his mistakes bending at the waist, a bad thing for OL.  This occurs, however, when he is trying to maintain good technique and he gets fooled by a stunt---once the G should have released his block to the RT but he did not, allowing for a stunt/blitz (can't remember) to reach the qb.  This looked bad, but it was not on the RT.  With no back helping that side, the G should have released the DT when he took a route to his outside and stepped down.  Instead, he rode the block out.  The RT saw this and tried to step inside to B gap, but was late.

 

Later I saw him pull on a counter and sealed the opposite side---not many tackles can do that.  It was beautiful.  He reaches the second level when he needs to.  He has solid feet, decent to good hands, and he plays with good technique most of the time.  He seems smart, based on the improvisation and his understanding of angles. I am not sure about his measureables, but if his arms are more than 33", I would say he is a solid second to third round pick based on what I see.  I would say that he has some potential to convert to a LT down the road.

 

Finally, did you notice how well he stays on blocks?  Better tnan Bell.  In addition, when protecting the pocket, he does not take an angle directly to the QB like Bell does; he fans out at a 45 degree angle until contact. This is important because Cam is mobile and it expands the size of the pocket. 

 

Nice call.  I like this guy.  I would rather have Lewan, but 75 is a good football player who would upgrade us from day 1.

Damn nice to read comments from someone who really understands what they are talking about....does not happen often on The Huddle.

Billy Turner.

Great measurables, but idk how much he has beyond that. I watched him closely Tuesday. Seems to have a really slow first step and gets beat pretty consistently against speedier guys. Solid run guy but I dont know like him as a pass protector at the NFL level if what I saw this week is any indicator. Havent heard anything about him from anywhere else.

MHS - I appreciated your opinion on Schofield......may I ask if you think Moses (UVA) makes it to our 2nd round pick? I know he's starting to shoot up boards after looking like a late 3rd - late 4th rounder initially. I'd love to go BPA WR in the 1st, then double-dip on Moses in the 2nd and Schofield in the 3rd.
