    Why SICK likes him @ 44?: Hernandez is a beast. The dude makes plays down the field, is great for YAC, and brings a ton of versatility to the passing game. In my offense in carolina, I am happy with DeAngelo Williams pounding the ball with Willis Mcgahee backing him up, Giving a young quarterback like Moore or Thigpen a safety net with a Tight End like Hernandez can only do great things for them as a budding player.

    Put him in an offense with Steve Smith, Williams, McGahee, Edleman, Curtis etc....and the panthers offense can scare people. Hernandez is too big to be covered by a DB and too fast to be covered by a LB. This causes many match up problems with the defense, and will only help bolster the panthers offensive attack, both running and passing the ball.

    41. Buffalo Bills select:

    Navarro Bowman/OLB/Penn State

    Bowman, a former Maryland prep Defensive Player-of-the-Year did not start until the fourth game of the 2008 season, but from there never looked back, emerging as one of the Big Ten's and the nation's top linebackers and playmakers. The athletic, swift and hard-hitting Bowman is intent on carrying on the "Linebacker U." tradition. He will add intensity to an already talented and outstanding defense.

    With the 42nd Pick of the Slowest Moving GM League Draft in History the Detroit Lions Select ...

    Terrence "Mount" Cody, Behemoth Tackle, Alabama

    [​IMG]

    In speaking with Duss last night, he confided in me that his list really started and ended with Cody at 42. It makes a lot of sense. Duss is transitioning the Lions to a 3-4, and he grabs a guy that takes Bill Parcell's concept of "Planet Theory" to an entirely different level.

    Much has been made about Cody and the weight:
    [​IMG]
    Cody ... HUNGRY ...
    That said, I think it's been overblown somewhat. The guy was a force for a top level NCAA program with a playing weight rumored to be somewhere around 370 pounds. The man was agile, nimble, and force to be reckoned with along the defensive line. In fact, his athleticism is legendary at Alabama, where he was rumored to be able to do a full back-flip flat-footed.

    Scouting Report​


    http://walterfootball.com/scoutingreport2010tcody.php

    In Cody the Lions select perhaps the best pure NT prospect in the entire NFL draft. As I said earlier the weight issues have been a bit a bigger deal than they should. This kid will end up being a great NT in the same vein as Gilbert "The Kitchen Table" Brown, Ted Washington, and Shaun Rogers. It's a great value pick for Detroit at 42, allowing them to simultaneously draft value and fill a need. I'm sure the Lions are thrilled to have Mount Cody on their team - all of him.

    With the 44th overall pick, the Seattle Seahawks select

    Vladimir Ducasse, OT, UMASS


    [​IMG]

    There's no secret about my need for a blind side protector and I'm proud to announce that Vladimir Ducasse is officially a Seattle Seahawk. A raw but very talented offensive tackle that's blessed with great quickness and strength. I was really impressed by him at the Senior Bowl, as I felt he improved every day. He got his rear end handed to him by Brandon Graham at one point but he bounced back well the rest of the days. He will struggle with the inside move by pass rushers because he can slide out with his kickslide too far in anticipation of an outside move but that will all go away as he gets more experience. He's a good run blocker IMO and in pass protection, he slides his feet very well. He doesn't always play with leverage, which will be corrected once he develops, but he has a fantastic punch. His hand use will sometimes get off course but again, he's raw and it will come to him. He's also got good character and comes from a hard working background.

    After much war room discussion including fielding offers for the pick and fearful 'their guy' won't be there if they trade down....with the 49th pick the Buffalo Bills select:

    Ryan Matthews/RB/Fresno State

    Solidifying his already high draft stock, the 5-foot-11, 217-pound runner had a strong Pro Day workout. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 to 4.48 seconds, according to NFL.com. Per the report, Matthews also had a 34-inch vertical leap and a 4.1 short shuttle. Matthews rushed for 1,808 yards last season and scored 19 touchdowns, finishing his career with 39 touchdowns.
    He’s regarded as a late first-round draft pick.

    We have a trade! The Carolina Panthers have traded the pick to the San Francisco 49ers. With the fiftieth pick in the 2010 GM League Draft, the 49ers select . . . . Jason Worilds, outside linebacker from Virginia Tech University.

    [​IMG]

    NFL Draft Expert Simon Clancy on the pick:
    The first clip of Worilds I want to show you is the very first clip of the reel, starting at 0.07 because it combines almost everything that Orgeron desires in a defensive lineman. Worilds is off the ball quicker than anyone at the snap. If you pause the tape after just one second, at 0.08 and look across the line, Worilds is ahead of his other three line mates. He sells a hard outside rush and the RT, Drew Davis responds accordingly. Drew doesn’t show too much inside, in fact he turns his shoulders square, almost asking Worilds to run the arc and try and beat him round the edge to get to Greg McElroy. Davis seems pretty well balanced, knees bent. He maybe leans a little into Worilds, but he can’t have expected the one handed jolt he receives at 0.09. It’s the pop Orgeron demands. And if you hit play you’ll see that Davis, the 6’7, 306lb senior, gets blown up by Worilds who gets under him, rocks him with the right arm and knocks a man 5 inches and 51lbs heavier, back three yards. And Davis doesn’t just fall down. Both feet leave the floor. Now Worilds doesn’t even dip and strike here. He’s taking Davis and throwing him down without really creating the leg power that you’d normally deem necessary to do what he did to Davis.

    When you watch professional boxing or if you spar yourself, you’ll know that the best punches, the punches with most power tend to come from your legs. Any boxer, any trainer will tell you that the big punches come from the ground up. For Worilds to generate the power without maximising his leg strength is remarkable and immediately points to a very fundamentally strong individual.

    But it wasn’t just a one off. The second clip I want you to look at is at 0.43. Same game, same match up on the edge, same result. But it happens going the other way so we have Worilds and Davis down the bottom of the screen which gives us a better chance to analyse the feet of the tackle and the leg work of Worilds. This time Jason is in a four point stance, something he regularly occupies. If you watch, McElroy drops his leg to indicate to center Will Vlachos to snap the ball at 0.43. The play starts at 0.44 and by 0.45, Worilds again is significantly further upfield than his three DL mates. Perhaps because of what happened earlier, Davis turns his body square on to Jason quicker than the previous example and to counter it, Jason, instead of stopping and punching as he did first time around, merely steps across Davis and repeats the trick of getting one hand into him and knocking Davis backwards onto the floor. When he crosses in front of Davis, he drops his hips a little, but again, not to the degree that you’d expect given the result.

    The next play I want you to watch is at 0.36 because it shows pretty good bullrush technique and football intelligence. What I mean by that is that when you watch this clip, you’ll see Worilds come up field, he’ll engage with his man and deliver a pretty textbook blow to the breastplate area. But instead of carrying on with the bullrush, he clearly sees that QB Dave Shinskie is only taking a short drop so any full rush will just go behind the QB and have no impact. Worilds sees Shinskie pull up short on his drop and step up into the pocket. As he does so, you’ll see that his initial jolt has been so good that it’s created a lane for him to attack the QB. He’s managed to disengage and create separation so as to get in on the passer. As he tries to disengage he’s clearly being held and that denies him from recording a sack, but you seep him dip, strike, and this time generate good power from the lower body to be able to create a lane. He does it with excellent strength, good hand position and lower body strength.

    So what about a pure bullrush? Well, skip on the video to 0.46. This is replay shot from behind Greg McElroy. You have Worilds on the strong side of the formation as a 5 or even really as a pure 6 technique given how wide he is, regardless of whether the TE is there or not. Now, if you start the tape and then stop it again at 0.48, Worilds is the only down lineman who hasn’t yet engaged. Clearly Davis is fearful of what’s gone before, although Kirby Smart, the Alabama offensive co-ordinator, still has him man to man on Worilds. Despite being 5 inches smaller, Jason’s pad level is low. He’s three strides out of his stance but his body is still not upright – he’s presenting Davis with less of a target to hit. If you look at Davis’s body, he’s bending his knees, but he’s making two fundamental mistakes; firstly, he’s looking to initiate contact with our man by bending at the waist. That immediately puts him off balance.

    Secondly, and more critically, his base is very narrow. Look at how close together his legs are. He’s not set himself a wide enough base to balance himself. Thus, you have a tackle there for the taking. But not every end can do that. Now I don’t know whether Jason got off the ball and immediately thought ‘bullrush’ and we’ll probably never know, but you can make an educated guess that he saw Davis’s body position and thought he’d simply go through him with power. Jason gets his hands inside first. That’s critical. Stop the tape at 0.49 and first survey the scene. Greg McElroy is setting up in a pretty clean pocket. Colin Peek is flaring out left, he has a back in front of him engaged, but certainly left and right seem pretty comfortable. But look at Worilds. Look at his elbows. There’s nothing for Davis to get a hold of. Worilds has beaten him inside to the punch and now has his hands in perfect position on the breastplate of his opponent. No way Davis can get his hands back inside onto Worilds because his elbows are tucked so tightly in. He either gets his hands outside his shoulder pads and risks a very likely holding call or he tries to beat him back by grabbing whatever he can. He goes for the latter option and tries to grab his head. With Jason’s hands in perfect position, he pushes the tackle back in towards McElroy. Now, one half of this is textbook. But again, perhaps because he feels he doesn’t have to, he doesn’t sink his hips on contact and generate power through his legs to further aid him. I suspect that if he’d have done that, given the shape of Davis’s body, he would have again knocked him to the ground. As it is, he lifts him up and forces him to take a back hop, but he can’t finish Davis off because he hasn’t generated enough strength from below. You could actually argue that were it NOT for the quickness of the hands and their subsequent great placement, that Worilds was playing a little high, simply because he’s not dropping down and generating that power.

    Now look at the play at 0.58. It’s almost a carbon copy of the previous play, except that on this one, he does everything right and not only does it enable him to disengage, it actually confuses the tackle who tries to block fresh air. Clearly, between 1.00 and 1.01, in the instant that Worilds makes contact, he almost drops out of picture completely. Not because he’s hidden by the RG but because he’s coiled himself up and exploded into Davis. He gets his hands up under Davis, he drives him back two steps but he has the power, generated because he dropped his hips and drove through the bottom half of his body to get the pop that creates space for him to remove his hands from the breastplate and pressure McElroy from the backside.

    With the 51st pick, the Pittsburgh Steelers select Rob Gronkowski, TE, Arizona

    [​IMG]
    In today's NFL it seems like if you get a tight end you get a guy who's either a pass catching guy with little blocking ability, or a blocking tight end with little pass catching ability. With Gronkowski you get both. He's guy who can make plays down the field and is a major threat in the red zone (6'6 1/4'' with huge hands) as well as a very willing blocker with the potential to be an outstanding blocker. We feel he is a very good pairing with our other TE Donald Lee, and were very excited to see him still on the board at this pick. There were some questions about his back injury, but after a very impressive pro day where he showed no signs of lingering effects, we feel he is excellent value at this pick as well as fills a need for us.

    The only player in Gamecocks history to earn first-team all-Southeastern Conference honors for three consecutive years, Norwood was a productive college player at defensive end, inside and outside linebacker. He is far better going forward, especially as a pass rusher, than he is going laterally or backward, so he is expected to be moved to defensive end or pass-rush outside linebacker in the NFL. His athletic ability is not obvious, but his production shows his well-honed instincts and a high-rev motor. He was a captain in 2009, and his work ethic is reflected in a criminal justice degree he earned in three-and-a-half years. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange, NFLDraftScout.com/CBS Sports/USA TODAY

    With the 53rd Pick in the GML Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select ...

    JIMMY GRAHAM

    [​IMG]

    With both the FS and WR position locked up with our first two picks, we felt like we still needed to get more aggressive on offense. Taking a look at the board and mocking up our projections of the remaining picks up to 67, we decided to trade up and go after the TE that we had rated as our #2 player in Jimmy Graham.

    There’s no doubt, at least in our minds, that Jimmy Graham is the most athletic TE available in the entire draft. His combine numbers are simply off the charts. We feel that the combination of his speed and size presents a tremendous mismatch for us down the seam against slower linebackers and smaller defensive backs.

    It may sound a little bit crazy, but we probably would not have considered Graham if not for the other TEs already on the roster. Bo Scaife is a nice TE who should provide a nice target for Josh Freeman. Ben Hartsock is arguably the best blocking TE in the NFL. This means that we are free to develop Graham – who we recognize is very raw – at the right pace. That’s important because we don’t want to overwhelm him too much off the bat. In other words, we aren’t going to ask him to do too much – we want him to play within himself and make sure what he contributes is fundamentally sound.

    That said, Norv Turner will obviously try to take advantage of the mismatch he presents in obvious passing situations (particularly the red zone, where his height and leaping ability should make him a very imposing target.) Graham gives us another legitimate passing weapon to go along with Jordy Nelson, Sammie Stroughter, Bo Scaife, and the recently drafted Brandon LaFell. It helps that Turner has a track record of coaching basketball players turned football players, having coached the model we are looking for in Antonio Gates. That experience was one of several reasons we brought Turner in to our organization in the first place.
    SCOUTING REPORT

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1702982

    We really like the idea of bringing Graham along slowly behind current #1 TE Bo Scaife. To start with Graham should at the very least be a mismatch for opposing defenses, especially in the red zone. His combination of size, speed, and potential was simply too much for us to pass up, so when we saw the opportunity to trade up and get him, it was something we felt we had to do. We can’t wait to see him in a Bucs uniform to start the season.

    With the 54th pick, the Seahawks select

    Donald Butler, OLB,Washington

    [​IMG]

    One of the most underrated prospects in this draft class, in my opinion. I felt it was necessary to move up for Butler because of his outstanding cover skills. He's very fluid in his hips and can change directions very well. He can match up in man coverage and gets proper depth in coverage. He doesn't always stack and shed cleanly in my opinion but I won't be asking him to do that in this defense. I'll ask him to get to the sideline with his good range and make plays on the ball in the air.

    With the 56th pick the Green Bay Packers select Ricky Sapp. Outside Linebacker from Clemson.

    [​IMG]

    Scouting Report from Scott Wright-

    We plan on Sapp coming in right away and competing with Brad Jones for the starting outside linebacker spot opposite to last years first round pick Clay Matthews. Even if Sapp doesn't win the full-time job, we feel he can add another pass rush threat that we could use on third down. Sapp has some experience lining up as a linebacker in a 34 so we are hoping this transition is quick and easy.

    We feel that Tyson fits in perfectly in Baltimore, both in culture and defensive scheme. He is a hard worker with a relentless motor and we expect him to play defensive end in our 3-4 scheme, with the potential to bump inside to NT if needed.

    With the 58th pick in the 2010 GM League draft the Indianapolis Colts select: Morgan Burnett FS Georgia Tech

    Burnett is well-built instinctive safety who does a good job locating the ball in the secondary and then closing on it from a center field position. He exhibits good balance and footwork in his drop and consistently keeps his feet under him when asked to transition and get out of his breaks. Burnett gets up to speed quickly and showcases impressive range when asked to make plays sideline to sideline. He exhibits good click-and-close ability on passes in front of him and can consistently get his hands on the ball. He's an impressive ball hawk in the secondary. Against the run, Burnett does a nice job reading the action in front of him and then taking good angles toward the ball. He isn't a physical tackler and has a tendency to lower his head into contact, but he wraps up well and can fill running lanes on the inside.

    http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/front-office-total-access-stats.html&position=fs

    03/21/2010 - TOP RATED NFL DRAFT SCOUT SAFETIES: *Morgan Burnett, Georgia Tech, 6-2, 209, 2-3: He had a coming-out party as a sophomore in 2008, when his seven interceptions tied for No. 1 in the nation, and he led his team with 93 tackles while earning All-America buzz. His production wasn't as impressive last season (85 tackles and four interceptions), but he decided it was time to turn pro anyway. He does just about everything well, with excellent awareness and reaction in man and zone coverage, and he can be intimidating as a hitter. His first career touchdown came against Matthew Stafford. Burnett was unable to run at the combine because of a pulled hamstring, but he passed the eyeball test for speed and strength in games. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange, NFLDraftScout.com/CBS Sports/USA TODAY

    Read & React: Reliable instincts for the position. Diagnoses the play and accelerates quickly to the ball, showing little wasted motion. Understands his role as the last line of defense and takes good angles to limit the damage.

    Man Coverage: A bit high in his backpedal, but can flip his hips to turn and run with receivers. Changes direction quickly enough that he was often asked to drop down as a nickel cornerback and appears to have the fluidity and break on the ball to do so at the next level. Good hand strength to press at the line of scrimmage. Keeps his hands on the receiver at the start of his route to disrupt timing with the quarterback. Quick, active hands to fight with the receiver as the ball arrives. Good ball skills (14 career INTs).

    Zone Coverage: An alert zone defender, Burnett understands his role and the role of his teammates. Recognizes holes in the zone and is quick to react. Sneaks a peek back at the quarterback and breaks on the ball quickly. Has the straight-line speed and agility to change direction necessary in being a true centerfielder in three-deep coverage and the range for two-deep.

    Closing/Recovery: Sneaks a peek into the backfield to read the quarterback's eyes. Generates speed quickly out of his breaks and shows a late burt to close. Locates the ball quickly and competes for the jump ball. Highpoints the ball and has the body control and strength in his hands to come down with the contested interception.

    Run Support: Willing and active in run support. Attacks the line of scrimmage, but will take questionable angles to the ball and is too often forced to re-direct at the last moment and latch on for a drag-down tackle, rather than applying a forceful pop. Willing to take on blockers, but prefers to elude and make the tackle himself.

    Tackling: Flashes some pop as a hitter. Can be an intimidating presence over the middle. Often leads with his shoulder rather than wrapping up. Generally a reliable wrap-up open-field tackler. Takes questionable angles when coming down in run support, forcing himself to lunge and latch on to the ballcarrier attempting to cut back against him. Has the strong, accurate hands to grab hold for the pull-down tackler, but this is an area in which he could improve. Stronger NFL runners will be able to break away from his arm tackles.

    Intangibles: Elected to leave early despite what some characterized as a "disappointing" 2009 season. Signed with Georgie Tech as a highly touted prep prospect. Received offers from Alabama, Florida and Georgia. First career touchdown came on an INT return against 2009 No. 1 draft pick Matthew Stafford in 2008.

    The San Diego Chargers are proud to select Rodger Saffold OT from Indiana with the 60th pick in the NFL Draft.




    [​IMG]


    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1243668

    Strengths
    Saffold has raw athletic ability in space and does an above average job of reaching defenders at the second level; he did a solid job on NW’s Corey Wooten though he had tight end help some of the time. He displays good athletic ability in space with the quickness to cut off rush lanes once he loses contact with a pass rusher. He generated a pretty decent push in the first half in the run game against Corey Wooton.

    Does a nice job reaching defenders off his frame in the run game and uses his athletic ability to chip at the line and seal at the second level. He has an above average first step off the edge and has the range to consistently reach corner on his initial kick-slide. Most of Indiana’s big runs this season have come on his side.

    Weaknesses
    At times he can get too wide with his footwork and will struggle to keep his base compact in pass protection. On occassion he doesn’t generate much power when extending his arms into blocks and is easily disengaged from on the outside. He has a tendency to overextend and get off balance. He has decent feet but can be beaten around the edge.

    Due to his tendency to get too high and lose leverage when facing quick-twitch edge-rushers, he struggles to quickly redirect and anchor at the point. Also he can be overwhelmed on contact and fails to consistently stay on blocks.

    Despite his size and speed he's not a dominant in-line run blocker and struggles generating much push at the point of attack, he doesn’t possess the body control to consistently stay on linemen through the play and is eventually disengaged on contact.

    At times he really struggles to stay on blocks. In the 2nd 1/2 of the game versus Wootton despite a good early game he didn’t do much that was noticable [in a good way,] in the run game against strong defenders he has struggled to generate movement in the running game.

    With the 61st pick in the NFL draft the New England Patriots select Calos Dunlap from Florida!!!!

    [​IMG]

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_Dunlap

    This could easily be one of the best picks in the draft. While Dunlap needs to prove he can play at a high level the entire game he has athletic skills that not many people have. He could be a star for the New England Patriots lining up next to Vince Wilfork at defense end in their 3-4 scheme..





    Overview
    Has seen action in 40 games at Florida, recording 15 starts…Recorded 46 tackles, including 27 solo and 19 assisted…Owns 15.5 tackles for loss and 19 quarterback sacks…Has deflected two passes, forced two fumbles, recovered a fumble and blocked four kicks during his career at UF…Was named the Defensive MVP of the 2009 FedEx BCS National Championship Game.
    Strengths
    Great size and bulk. Shows flashes of genius and uses his pads well. A pretty instinctive player who just seems to know where to go and what to do.
    Weaknesses
    Was arrested for DUI prior to the SEC Title Game and was suspended for that game as a result. Questions are often asked about his work ethic and whether he always gives 100%. Overhyped. Could well be the next Jamaal Anderson.

    With the 63 pick in the NFL Draft,
    Arizona Gm- AZFINFANMANG SPRINTS down to the Podium:


    Colt McCoy- QB U of Texas:

    After watching his Pro-Day yesterday, where all but two teams watched him complete 58 consecutive passes..that's right, he went 58 for 58, we had no choice but go this direction.

    Colt will have the opportunity to vie for a starting job immediately.

    We feel this young man has all the "Right" attributes to have a very nice career in the NFL, and when he fell this far, we felt compelled to make the move to jump up a few picks and grab him. Here's a few of his selling points:

    Built like a Sherman Tank
    Incredible Accuracy
    Has played at a very high level against some of the very best Defenses at the collegiate level
    Very good "Headiness" and quick decisions
    Can tuck the ball and run when needed, and throws VERY well on the run
    Great team leader, with an incredible work ethic
    Wont find a higher "Character" guy-very key to being team leader
    Very smart
    Loves to win. Is fiery, and always working to get his team up.

    With the 67th overall selection, the New England Patriots select...

    Brandon Spikes, LB, Florida

    [​IMG]

    After selecting two great players in Derrick Morgan and Carlos Dunlap who the Patriots feel are value picks, they select another value pick in Brandon Spikes. While Spikes has really fell on mock drafter's big boards because of a poor 40 time, no one can argue his gameplay on tape. Many considered Spikes to go in round one until his Pro Day.

    Spikes will play inside linebacker in the Patriots 3-4 defense. He has two very good linebackers to learn from in Jerod Mayo and Gary Guyton. The Patriots are happy to add a player of Spikes' caliber to their roster, who is simply a football player.

    And now the 70th pick in the draft the Miami Dolphins select from Ole Miss WR Dexter McCluster. I will add to this tonight but I plan on using DM as a supplement to the Wildcat as Rickys replacement coming in motion and as a slot WR. Jennings Massaquoi Mccluster and Bess with THE Zach Miller thats a nice passing game.

    [​IMG]

    Some may question his strength for being a small guy, truth is, pound for pound he is one tough mother ****er. He did put up 20 reps at the 225 pound bench press at the scouting combine. He reminds me a little of Warrick Dunn.

    Question his toughness? May I submit to you him decleating a certain safety who was ironically enough picked just after this pick.

    Watch him at the 1:30 mark seperate ironically enough again from a player that was picked just before him (Spikes doesn't even smell him as he goes flying by).

    With the 71st pick, the Pittsburgh Steelers select, Chad Jones, S, LSU

    [​IMG]

    To fill our final need we felt we needed to move up and get a player who we felt could have gone much higher and wouldn't be around much longer. We could have waited for our pick at the top of the 4th round and hoped one of the safeties in the next tier would fall, but we thought we'd be better off getting the guy with the most upside at the position left on the board. Jones has great size and good athleticism and while he has some work to do, but make no mistake, his upside is tremendous and we feel having Troy Polamalu next to him will help ease his transition. We are extremely excited about this pick.

    With the 74th pick in the GML draft, the Miami Dolphins select:

    Cornerback from Oklahoma, Dominique Franks
    Height: 5 ft 11 in
    Weight: 194 pounds
    40 time: 4.46


    [​IMG]

    We are happy with this pick as we needed to add another body to our corner rotation. With Smith and Davis the clear starters, Franks will push recently acquired Bradley Fletcher for the nickel corner role. We do think Vontae will push to inside slot for the time being in the nickel and dime packages as Fletcher is better suited to play outside. Franks will give us a little flexibility inside or out. He can also help us out in the return game as he is quite talented in that regard, particularly as a punt return man. He does need improvement in some areas of his game as noted in the quote above. However, I do feel we are getting another second round talent (see McCluster pick) here in the middle of the third round.

    Safety from Georgia, Reshad Jones

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Had to get an enforcer for the secondary. With Reshad we think we've found that enforcer. Free safety skills who will project to the strong safety position. We picked up Mike Brown in free agency. Wiley veteran but he's always been more of a free safety even though he racked up a ton of tackles last year in a comeback season with the Chiefs. Reshad has ballhawking skills and hits like a mack truck. Take a look at these videos of him blowing up people left and right. But also notice the ball skills while the passes are in the air. With 4.50 speed, his hitting ability and his ball skills (39.5in vertical), I actually think he's a better football player than Taylor Mays.

    KOA MISI

    [​IMG]

    After drafting offense for the last two picks, we decided to go back to the defense and address our front four. We feel like we got a very good value with Koa Misi in the middle of Round 3.

    [/table]​

    The big question mark surrounding Misi, especially at his size, is whether he can hold up against the run in the NFL. Our likely plan is to flip incumbent starter Stylez White to SDE, leaving Misi to play WDE in our 4-3. In obvious run situations we will likely rotate him out of the game with youngsters Michael Bennett and Kyle Moore.

    That said, Misi is a versatile player, and though undersized a bit we like him as a 4-3 WDE. We like his flexibility and feel like he adds another dimension to an already outstanding pass rush. This is because, at least to us, Misi is the definition of a hustle player. The guy just never quits. He’s relentless. We like that in our defensive ends.

    What sold us on Misi as opposed to other DE prospects at this spot, in addition to his hustle and determination, was the fact that he’s a high character guy. We expect him to emerge as a team leader sooner rather than later.

    SCOUTING REPORT

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1245666

    We believe that Misi is a high energy guy and a very good football player. We are excited to get him into our defensive line rotation and believe he will contribute right away. Misi will have every chance to start at DE for us, competing with free agent Jason Babin for the WDE spot - and don’t be surprised if the youngster surprises and wins the battle. We expect Misi to develop into a very good football player for us, and eventually becoming a very good NFL player.
