Projected Round: 5 S

Mobile Combo DL Good sideline to sideline speed. Quick first step with jab, strong bull rush, solid at point of attack. Good balance and quick feet. once disengaged has good speed to chase down QBs and smothers. Smothers running backs on contact. began Cleve as an OLB but rebut his body and started 13 games totalling 6.5 sacks and 11,5 TFL. Still raw but talent is there and passes the eye test. Wide and balanced body. locks up ball carriers and smothers without arm tackling at point of contact. fit with no injury history. mainly DE in a 3-4 but excels at DT in 4-3. High motor and finishes through whistle. Good center of gravity, excellent lower body strength but needs to improve arm strength as he is prone to getting locked-up and must develop better swim move and uppercut without opening up hips. Needs to improve lateral slide-step without opening hips to drive through double teams. Stays on feet and not prone to getting bent backwards. Definitely worth a 5th round pick and shows great promise for improvement and is coachabke as he worked over 2 years just to earn starting spot, transforming his body from OLB to DE at UGA. Has great Shot at making roster and is a student dedicated to improving. good chip on shoulder.

this could be our Kam Chacellor and could take over Thomas Davis' role whenever TD hangs 'em up.

I would take him in the first. talk about value and versatility. if you want it, this guy's got it.

Owa Odighizuwa DE/DT UCLA

I'm sold. if we could draft this guy, it would really help me get over the Hardy loss.

I'm hoping for him in the second round, but if he's trending up.. here's his NFL profile off of NFL.com

ANALYSIS
Strengths
Absolute Greek God with the pads off. Shredded physique with very little body fat. Strong at the point of attack. Plays with desired anchor and strong lower body. Run defender who can close down creases. Gets off ball with good pad level and has potential to convert speed to power. Hands are violent and active. Relentless and competitive. Never gives up on a pass rush. Expected to be a core special-teams talent. Can play 4-3 defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker.
Weaknesses
Not skilled as a pass rusher. Won't win around the edge often and must prove he can counter back inside. Has dealt with two surgeries on his hip and missed all of 2013 because of it. Lateral agility is limited. Range in pursuit in question. Could be mismatched if forced to cover in space. More unit fit than talented player.
Sources Tell Us
"He's not Courtney Upshaw, but he could be used kind of like that. I can see him playing in both 4-3 or 3-4, but he can't be counted on as a pass rusher and you have to know that he will be limited to just being a run stopper." -- AFC national scout
NFL Comparison

Bottom Line
Odighizuwa has some scheme versatility, but he's not necessarily a versatile player. Some scouts believe that he could open some eyes with his straight-line speed in his workout, but his marginal pass-rush skills and average athleticism could stunt his draft stock.

We Have 4, 1-Trick Pony Receivers

12 March 2015 - 06:15 PM

Ginn-Primarily a Returner
Cotchery-slant/possession receiver
Brown-just fast
Bersin-crossing possession receiver

Any ideas about how we can consolidate all these traits into just one receiver? Who would that receiver be?

I'm saying Hakeem Nicks to replace Cotch/Bersin and Brown.

if a WR is BPA at one of our picks, I say go for it, otherwise, I think Nicks with Ginn with Brown in 4-wide sets make for solid compliments to KB and Olsen.

has everyone written this guy off? he's coming into his contract year and was a beast subbing in for Hardy and Johnson in 2013-14.

who is to say he doesn't come into his own, as it took Hardy and Johnson a few years to become the forces they are?

At worst, he's better than any rookie we could draft and at best, he beats out Ealy for a starting spot. I'm looking for big things out of this former 4th round draftee.
