Chandler Jones Rated Best Defensive Player

25 April 2012 - 11:01 PM


Both Mike Mayock and Michael Lombardi have went on record to say that this kid is the best defensive player in the draft, and will reach this acknowledgement by his third year. This also is clear implication that he is the best defensive end.

On Mike Mayock's board, he is the #9 prospect.

This guy has been a late riser, but he also had some pretty good tape, from what I understand...

Is this guy our future #9 pick? Is he going to go top 10 as a surprise pick?

I loved this guy. HOF material.


Mock Draft

22 April 2012 - 07:54 PM

Firstly, I will have two scenario's. One in which we address Dline first, and the second where we go in another direction. I will only cover the first two picks, because the rest are so up for grabs, and honestly, I have no been looking at every player in the nation to know who to choose in the later rounds.

Here is scenario one:

Round 1- Fletcher Cox DT Mississippi State

This guy is a beast, and has freak athleticism, he may not be a stud against the run just yet, but he will get penetration, and will most definitely get sacks.

Round 2
Jayron Hosley CB/PR Virginia Tech
Posted Image
This guy has great speed, and has great ball skills. He seems like the biggest baller in the cornerback class, he has swag and he likes to get to the ball. He is a straight playmaker. Worse comes to worst, he would be a great free safety for us.

Scenario two:

Round 1

Stephon Gilmore CB South Carolina

Yes, I can feel the hatred. However, this guy has decent tape, and great measurables. The upside for this guy is so high. Yes, I know you can pull up some tape showing him having a bad time, but he simply has the measurables, and is only getting better

Round 2
Nick Perry DE, USC

This guy would provide immediate help on the opposing side of Charles Johnson to wreak havoc. I feel like this guy is one of the safer picks you could make in this draft, and it is a great value pick here, while also filling a need.

These are my two scenarios, in which two needs are filled, and with premium talent.

Gilmore Overlooked By Board

21 April 2012 - 05:32 PM

Let me explain my thoughts and reasoning. This guy has 4.4 speed, is 6'1", 190 pounds, and is all around prototypical corner build. This guy has also played at the SEC level and was a leader on his team. Gilmore has been shooting up draft boards and has even been rumored to be seen as better than Claiborne. If we got this guy, I think this would be not a reach, but a great pick. It fills a need, and he would arguable be the best player on the board.

Here are sources citing how highly he is ranked comparatively to Claiborne, and picks.

SI's Peter King, Dan Pompei of the National Football Post, and NFL Network's Mike Mayock and Mike Lombardi have all recently either reported or suggested that Gilmore is top-ten material. In Caplan's mock draft he has Gilmore going to Buffalo with the tenth overall pick.

People all around the league are talking about the potential and skill of this guy, and most of you are too stubborn to like him. All corners will get burned, and yes, he needs to stay lower to the ground in his backpedal, but this guy is top 10 material.

NFL Films' Greg Cosell also stated in a Friday radio interview that Gilmore is a better prospect than Claiborne, the 2011 Thorpe Award winner. "He's a hot guy," Lombardi said of Gilmore. "I was told Jacksonville actually likes him more than Claiborne." Lombardi also sent Gilmore to the Jags in his latest mock draft. At this point, we'd be surprised if Gilmore got out of the top-ten picks, and No. 7 seems his likeliest destination.


Here is just a video showing some good and bad plays of Gilmore. One of the better blitzers out of the slot that I've seen at corner.

This is from a year ago mind you, and he has been getting better...... This guy breaks on the ball hard.

So, what I am trying to say is, don't discount this guy. He is a legitimate prospect who has good game tape as well.

Kendall Wright Stock Falling

19 April 2012 - 11:28 PM

Kendall is being compared to Randall Cobb, a poor man's version of Randall Cobb. It is said that Wright has not only added weight during the offseason, but has not nearly the same run after the catch ability as Cobb, who went as the last pick of the second round. I say stay far away.... BRIAN QUICK!
