Relative Athletic Score for all drafted players


Recommended Posts

I don't really get being overly critical of Senior Bowl stuff.   Good OL play also had a lot do with OL chemistry and guys working with guys they know. 

I think how he looked vs Auburn, LSU, Clemson, Ohio St, UGA, etc. is probably a better insight of him than the Senior Bowl.

I don't know what you are talking about. Our best guards were always very athletic. Our worst ones were not. It's the difference between Trai Turner and Duke Robinson 

Just to play devil's advocate, because I do believe he looks fairly out of shape, even for a big boy...  but, I don't think Norwell was super athletic.

I have hope for him though.  He has the pedigree and there have been quite a few interior OLs taken over the last decade who have succeeded in the league with pretty disgusting measurables.

My RAS is at 1.36 now so Brown has me by a tenth or so.

I think if he loses some weight and gets serious about being a pro he'll be another steal late in the draft, but he's got to make that decision for himself.

Shi is a bit surprising.

Is it though?

They don't differentiate between X, Y and Z receivers. He gets crushed in the height / weight section of his RAS score because there's 6'4" monsters roaming the NFL at WR.

It's a real credit to this draft class that we have this much to discuss about our sixth round pick. I get it, Brown was the coaches' first-team all SEC guard, he's a beast. But traditionally if we get anything out of a sixth rounder, it's a win.

If you go to Christensen’s spider chart I found it interesting to see that Brady was most comparable to Rashawn Slater.

Knowing this staff viewed Slater more as a guard (I think) than tackle I wonder if they figured they’d be better off rolling the dice on the guy who was a true LT in college. Not to mention we grabbed Brady in the 3rd whereas we would’ve had to spend the 8th overall pick on Slater.

I'm not sure what they thought of Slater - I personally think he'll be a good LT in this league.

I think the lower down the Draft you go the more comfortable you are with taking players with 'flaws'. i.e. if you're hesitant to take Slater at #8 overall due to his arm length, but a very comparable player is there at #70 then you jump all over that.

Yeah that was a total homer post. Looks like the staff is hinging on him losing weight because he does have some skills but his weight cost him his RAS score. But those are the types of risks you take in the sixth round. He does have talent. 

Indeed. Very good gamble. If he is even a two deep player for the entire rookie contract, that is a HR for a 6th round pick.

I'll take undersized with ideal athleticism all day everyday over the guy who everyone drools over his Inspector Gadget arms but who can't actually move.

"Just move the guy in front of you" sounds nice until they stunt a DE and DT and he has to try to stop a guy 5 times faster than he is. 

Or you have to pull.
