I finally got to see him play today as the BC game was the alternate ESPN showing in my area so I checked him out about half the game.
I hqadn't read the story above before then so wasn't colored by his inner strength and resolve.
I thought he was a bit stiff. He's slightly behind Pollack and Spears IMO because he lacks that agile nature of the top pass rushing DE's. He is strong and obviously long. He has good speed once he gets moving. He reminds me a good bit of Greg Ellis(tho not as filled out) who I like alot.
I think he is a strongside DE who will be able to play the run and knock down alot of balls. Perhaps a Too Tall type career. Not sure if he goes bottom 10 of round 1 or top 10 of round 2 but think that is his area.
My top 3 in no particular order are still:
Rolle, Pollack and Rod Wright. The more games I see the more those 3 stand out to me as totally dominant.
Offensively the best I have seen are Braylon Edwards and Ryan Moats.
Vince Young is the best pure athlete I have seen play. He is still a raw QB but he is close to Vick on the run with 6'5" size.
But I still don't know what any team saw Thursday night that would have made them comfortable with waiting a round or two for the offensive lineman they wanted. ---Todd McShay
We just converted half our LB to DL. We have a 30m starting DL, it better be pretty friggin good.
