The OTs you would take at 25 if available

01 March 2015 - 10:16 PM

Some Jake Fisher and DJ Humphries discussion around here got me thinking.  Of course it all depends on how DG values each specific player, but I was wondering out of the potential left tackles: Who would you be willing to take at 25? 

 

For me..

 

Given:

 

Brandon Scherff

La'el Collins

Andrus Peat

Ereck Flowers

 

Fringe/Undecided:

 

Cameron Erving

The impression I get is he's actually totally capable at LT in the NFL but his star potential at center makes him overlooked..hell, the idea of bringing him in to be LT/Back-up Center for a bit and eventually take over for Kalil is intriguing

 

TJ Clemmings

He's raw and some say more ideal for RT but he could be a good option with a ton of potential

 

DJ Humphries

One of the more hyped guys once the combine started to roll around.  From Mallard Creek, has mentioned recently he would love to play here.  I'm sure we'll give him a look, interesting to wonder if DG could view him BPA.   

 

Jake Fisher

Another hyped guy as of late that was originally being projected around round 3 towards the beginning of the year.  There are scouts, analysts, and draft sites mentioning he could be taken in the first.  Chiefs and Giants fans are even talking about wanting to have him as their pick. 

 

 


Kevin Johnson CB Wake Forest

01 March 2015 - 06:05 PM

Kevin Johnson

6'0 188lbs

 

He had a few fantastic games last year (Clemson most notably) and I've seen a lot of good stuff written about this kid.  Johnson may fall into that zone between our 1st and 2nd rounder, but I see him having a late first round grade on a lot of sites.  He's a skilled technician at the position, good size, good speed, good awareness.  The area for improvement is in run support but I think he'll be highly coachable in that regard and get better moving forward.   

 

Never missed a single game in college and overall just seems consistent and poised to be a starting CB. 

 

Johnson may not end up being the BPA when 25 rolls around but regardless, he's going to be really good in the NFL and if you're open to Jalen Collins in R1, I think Johnson should be considered as well.    

 

NFL.com compares him to Sam Shields who's one of my favorite cornerbacks.

NFL Combine--DBs

I'm not seeing a thread so figured I'd start one.

 

Collins blazed in the 40 at 4.43

 

Also, this could be a chance for the seemingly light safety class to show some potential. 

 

One guy to keep an eye on is Gerod Holliman. 


Davis Tull OLB Tenn-Chattanooga

22 February 2015 - 02:35 PM

If you've been watching NFL Network today, you may have caught their praise and segment on Davis Tull.

6'2 3/8, 246, 42.5" Vertical (highest since 2006 at LB), 11' broad jump

 

He's been compared to everyone from Von Miller to Luke to Shazier.  Crazy athletic with a very high football IQ.  4 year starter, very very quick and instinctive.  SoCon Defensive Player of the Year.....3 years in a row.  Maintained a 4.0 GPA while racking up 18 TFL & 10.5 sacks most recently.  His sophomore year, he was second in the country in sacks at DE/LB.  

 

This guy screams Carolina Panther in my mind and could see his stock rising. 


Kenny Bell WR Nebraska

Kenny Bell

 

6'1 197 out of Nebraska

One thing that I take notice of in WRs are the ones that know how to go up and get the ball.  They either just out muscle defenders or seem to have a nose for it.  Landry and OBJ noticeably had these traits for Zach at LSU. 

 

That brings me to Kenny Bell.  I'm in no way saying he's comparable to the guys I mentioned in their respective play but he has that nose for the ball and a huge home run threat.  The one thing keeping him in the mid-rounds seems to be questions in how much he can bulk up and he weighed in this weekend at 197 after staying around 185 most of college.  He not only is quick but seems to have that second level he kicks into that just blazes past guys and with the added mass, he still ran a 4.4 flat.  

 

Keep your eye on Kenny Bell in R4-5.
