    Connor Barwin is intriguing as an OLB in the 3-4, looks like he has played on the Bearcat Basketball team as well. Didn't our head office mention they look for guys with Basketball experience for the athleticism to play OLB?

    I've been banging the Sean Smith drum for 3 months now. He's going to be a first round pick.

    Barwin is in excellent shape and is a former TE for the Bearcats.

    Here is a short highlight clip of him, looks pretty athletic. Thoughts from the Gurus?

    Also he is listed as an excellent special teams player. Named UC's Special Teams Player of the Week after blocking a punt and recovering a fumbled punt return at USF

    Smith has excellent size for a CB, any issues with his speed or Hips Boomer?

    None that I can see Joey. He might be a candidiate to move inside to FS.

    Big kid if his height is being reported correctly @ 6' 3" and has some long arms. Very interesting prospect if he decides to declare. I will keep my eye on him from now on.

    Here's a riser for you: Arthur Jones DT Syracuse

    For anyone who watched the Syracuse/ND game over the weekend, this kid was in the ND backfield all game. He had 17 tackles, numerous disruptions and a few sacks. At 6'4"/291/Sr he would probably fit well as a late round pick (6th-7th round) at DE in the 3-4. Hes quick off the ball, strong, and hustles. Hes not the most physically gifted player but man he plays hard on a bad team. Impressed the holy hell out of me as it was probably the single best performance by a DL I have seen this year

    The link I never clicked on at the start of the thread :) I had been meaning to make the post about Jones but too much stuff held me up. I would be surprised if Arthur Jones went top 60 however im disappointed others are taking notice. That kid is good. Dont know if he can play nose but he might make a nice replacement for Vonnie Holliday if we decide to dump him. :up:
