Gettleman on Sirius NFL Radio 3/24/2015

24 March 2015 - 08:13 PM

On free agency and the locker room:


- Still uses free agency to set up the team to be able to take best available player in the draft. Feels we are "darn close" to being able to do that.

- Not every guy can be a probowl player but you have to understand each player's niche and how that helps the team get better.

- Feels it is important to send a message to the locker room that if you play well and do the right things, we will take care of you (says this in reference to Greg Olsen's new deal).

- Says that last year when we were 3-8-1 if the locker room was toxic, we would have finished at 3-12-1. But we have a strong locker room that believes in Rivera and in what we do.


On Michael Oher:


- Not a good fit in Tennessee

- Oher has a great relationship with John Matzko and loves how he teaches techniques of the position

- Went back and watched 3 years of film on him and felt that coaching changes were an issue in his play along with injuries.

- Feels like there are two types of guys on your team when you win a Superbowl: Guys you win because of and guys you win in spite of. Really felt Oher was a guy the Ravens won because of (and he was playing left tackle during regular season).

- Feels very good about the signing and having him projected to start.


On Jonathan Stewart and running back depth:


- Feels Stewart really finished the season strong

- First time in 3 offseasons that Stewart hasn't had to have a surgery of any type.

- Really likes Fozzy. Loves his 3rd down abilities and credits his running ability as well.

- Understands depth is an issue but says it will be addressed in the draft (so we know we are targeting a RB at some point).


LB Jordan Hicks

This kid has a chance to be a special player. He has all of the tools and flashes playmaking ability and tenacity.


I wouldn't be mad if we drafted him in the 4th. He has an injury history, but he got over that and played great last year. He could compete to start from Day 1.




The "Blue Goose" Prospect

22 March 2015 - 01:13 PM

As we all know, Gettleman is a man that looks for the "blue goose" prospects in the first 2 rounds.  "Blue Goose" of course meaning players that have elite attributes about them. 


In his first draft he came away with Star Lotulelei and Kawann Shortt. Star was extremely athletic and powerful for a big man, and Kawann Short was the best interior pass rusher in the draft.


In his second draft he came away with Kelvin Benjamin and Kony Ealy. Kelvin of course was the 6'5 240 pound wideout with 10 inch hands that could be a matchup nightmare, and Kony Ealy was the most agile DE (6.83 cone drill) that could play both inside and outside.


So I ask you to take your opinions out of it and look at it strictly from this point of view: Who are the "blue goose" prospects that could be available at 25 and 57? Because those are the guys that Gettleman is going to draft. Keep in mind these guys have to have some attribute that is elite and they have to be able to contribute from day one.


I see a few guys that fit this profile, but I will edit later with my thoughts, I'm curious to hear yours.


**EDIT** Updated after reconsideration on a few players


To get this ball rolling I see these as the possible prospects at 25:


DE Arik Armstead

WR Devin Smith

OT TJ Clemmings

OT Ereck Flowers

RB Todd Gurley

CB Kevin Johnson



Some of the prospects that could be at 57:


WR Philip Dorsett

RB Tevin Coleman

DT Michael Bennett

WR Sammie Coates

RB Jay Ajayi

DE Preston Smith

CB Byron Jones

OT Jake Fisher

1st OT La'el Collins, LSU

2nd S/LB Shaq Thompson, Washington

3rd DE Trey Flowers, Arkansas

4th WR Rashad Greene, Florida State

5th OT/OG Sean Hickey, Syracuse


I would be ecstatic with a draft like this. What say you?

NFL Combine-- DL and LBs

Dante Fowler is a straight up stud. His 10 yard split and 40 time at his height and weight are impressive.


Arik Armstead looks less than athletic out there for those that were supporting him.
