He's being talked about as a late-round pick with his performance the past two days. He does not back down either, and just went after Quinton Coples in drills, battling hard after the whistle had blown.
-Vinny Curry of Marshall really stood out today and was impossible to stop at times. He's at a disadvantage as he's been used solely at defensive end and never allowed to stand up over tackle, but scouts leave the morning and the week highly impressed with his athleticism, quickness and general feel as a pass rusher.
[View Full Quote]- OL Senio Kelemete of Washington was pushed inside to guard today and was effective. He's a solid athlete and his ability to block with sound fundamentals (knee bend, hand placement) is impressive.
- Shea McClellin of Boise State looks better every day at the linebacker position. He's been planted in the middle today and has done a great job remaining patient with assignments, smoothly moving across the field and showing a good degree of awareness.
- Vinny Curry of Marshall is once again displaying a lot of quickness and athleticism. He really struggles handling blocks, and looks more and more like he'll be a natural as a 3-4 outside linebacker rather than at defensive end.
I'm changing my tune just a little. If we land Nicks in FA; I'd have a hard time not drafting Ingram or Curry in the 1st based on their Sr. Bowl performances. I love the fact that Ingram can start at SOLB opposite Ware, and then line he and Ware up on the same side in a four man front. If Ware is the DE and Ingram is the 3 Tech, you can assure Ingram is not doubled team. Ware may be chipped, but if he stays wide, the Center will not be able to help out if Ingram attacks the out side shoulder of the OG. Its very reminiscent of how the giants use Tuck inside. The only way to help out, a TE chips Ware and the RB doubles Ingram. This will now allow the backside to be open for the blitz as no TE or RB will be able to pickup the extra rusher.
With that formation you can now have, Ware-Ingram-Ratliff-Butler on the field at the same time. That's a very impressive four man rush unit. With Carters speed at nickel LB, a blitz up the middle will more than likely get home if they keep their spacing.
Curry, I think is going to prove to be a True OLB in the 3-4. If we take either of the two in the 1st; I would take Glenn if he dropped or the highest rated CB.
I would love to scoop up McClellin in the 3rd or 4th round.
For all this to work, we really need Arkin to step up this year. I love DeCastro, put passing up on a true pass rusher is hard to do. Esp. a versatile pass rusher as Ingram. Ingram's versatility is hard to find.
