Anyway He may not be the next LT but the more I read about David Pollack the more I like him. For anyone that hasn't picked up the sporting news draft guide here are some tidbits about him. 6-2 1/4 260 lbs. 4.70 40 yd. dash. Against the run, uses hands extremely well.
Pass rush: quick agile powerful and explosive. Changes direction quickly. Never quits when attacking the paser. Shows intiial quickness and closing burst of an elite edge rusher. Forces a lot of fumbles from quarterbacks. Is relentless. Lacks the speed to run past offensive tackles. Lacks the height and long arms to bat down a lot of passes.
Pursuit tackling: Never quits on a play. Is a powerful tackler; makes big plays.
Bottom link: Polack is an elite playmaker who improved his draft stock by staying in school in 2004. He makes up for his lack of height and elite speed with quickness, intensity, instincts, power and relentlessness. There isn't a more competitive or hard-working player in this class.
"You can alalyze it all you want, but he's going to be a hell of a player," says one AFC souct. "He doesn't look it , but the kid is an animal.
"You basically go into games knowing you're down one man," says Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville, "because if you don't use a fullback or the tight end to help out, he'll kill you."
