Eagles select...Sean Considine S. IOWA
probably scott young from BYU, or maybe trade
Iggles have such a great front office and have the top pick of all the players leftover, would be surprised if this was not a quality pick.
well gotta think that was a quality pick.
Crap. I hoped he was at least an option for us.
Y'know, Philly has had an awesome draft. There isn't a player they've selected that I wouldn't have wanted on our team.
Sean Considine...too bad. He'd have fit well in Dallas.
considine!!! They don't need him---must have done it to keep him away from us.
Strengths: Is an exceptional special teams player that made huge strides at DS his last two seasons at Iowa Has adequate-to-good straight-line speed and decent size for a FS. Is quicker than most people think and he also has good body control, balance and COD skills. Is aggressive and active versus the run. Plays bigger than measurables indicate. Takes good angles in pursuit, shows some burst when closing in on the ball carrier, and is a reliable and powerful tackler in space. Has a nose for the ball and makes a lot of big plays vs. the run, in coverage and on special teams. Has adequate range in zone coverage. Shows improved diagnostic skills, won't take many false steps, has decent straight-line speed when pursuing the ball in the air, and has better ball skills than his athletic ability would indicate. He has ideal intangibles. Is a great student who also has an outstanding work ethic on and off the field. Extremely coachable and gives a great effort in everything he does. Has the perfect mentality to play on special teams in the NFL. Is tough and played hurt as a senior.
Weaknesses: Has just decent size and is not an elite athlete. Has adequate-to-good speed but not great. His hips can look somewhat when he's turning and running. Has limitations in man-coverage and struggles to shadow quicker receivers. He is active and tough against the run but lacks great size to match up near the LOS in the NFL.
Overall: Considine spent his first two seasons primarily on special teams. He started all 13 games at free safety as a junior in '03 and finished with 64 total tackles, three INT's, six PBU and three fumbles recovered. Considine missed two games because of injury in 2004. In the 10 games he played as a senior, he finished with 42 tackles, one TFL, three INT's and seven PBU. In four seasons at Iowa, Considine recorded five blocked kicks, three of which were returned for touchdowns. In terms of physical tools, Considine does not stack up with a lot of the Day 1 safety prospects in this class. He has just decent size and is only an adequate athlete as a free safety prospect. However, he ran faster at the combine than expected and showed a lot more quickness and agility. He also is the type of player that the more you watch on film the more you fall in love with him. He's an exceptional special teams' player with the toughness, speed, instincts and tackling skills to translate that production to the NFL. He continues to improve at safety and has become much more of a playmaker. Furthermore, Considine has an exceptional work ethic, very good intelligence, and has ideal intangibles. In short, he's the type of player and person you want on your roster, which is why we think he's a good value in the third round.
considering we need a S and Parcells loves SP teams players you may have a vaild point. But still think they would have taken him regardless
The 2nd round wR is the only guy that does nothing for me. Doesn't mean he won't do soemthing, but the other guys I really liked.
dang one guy off the list.
Sean Considine, FS, Iowa
Height: 5:11.6 Weight: 206
Overview: A former walk-on, Considine soon became a mainstay in the Iowa secondary. The team captain also excelled in the classroom, earning Academic All-Big Ten Conference honors three times and Academic All-District accolades once. Considine was a standout running back and linebacker at Byron (Ill.) High School. He was named to the Illinois Coaches Association All-State team as a junior and senior and chosen first-team All-State as a senior by the Chicago Sun-Times and special mention by the Chicago Tribune. He holds the school records for career rushing yards (4,010), touchdowns in a season (34) and touchdowns in a career (65). Considine rushed for 1,580 yards as a senior and had 400 yards receiving while scoring 34 touchdowns. He gained 1,340 yards as a junior with 18 scores and had 13 touchdowns as a sophomore while rushing for 1,090 yards. After spending the 2000 season as a redshirt at Iowa, Considine was a key reserve in 2001, posting 17 tackles (11 solos) with a fumble recovery. He added 26 tackles (17 solos) and blocked two kicks during his sophomore campaign. Considine then took over the free safety position in 2003, recording a career-high 66 tackles (43 solos) with three interceptions, five deflected passes, two fumble recoveries and a pair of blocked kicks. A left foot injury would sideline him for two games in 2004, but Considine still managed 48 tackles (32 solos) with seven pass break-ups, a fumble recovery, three interceptions and a blocked kick. For his career, Considine registered 157 tackles (103 solos) with three stops for losses of 7 yards, five blocked kicks (four led to Iowa touchdowns) and thirteen pass break-ups. He gained 106 yards on six interceptions and 25 yards with two touchdowns on four fumble returns.
Analysis: Positives...Has an athletic build with developing upper body muscle tone, firm midsection and hips and only 9.7 percent body fat...Sensational kick blocker who times his leaps and has a knack for finding the ball...Intelligent athlete who will rarely bust an assignment...Studies film and has no problems retaining plays...Has good straight-line speed and is better when playing in the box than in the deep zone...Shows a strong closing burst, getting a decent break on the ball...Has natural hands to catch and secure the ball...Active in run support, taking good angles in pursuit and will hit with authority...Will sacrifice his body to make the play.
Negatives...Does not have the timed speed or flexibility to handle man coverage, as receivers too often get him turned around and dictate the route progression...Spends more time chasing than covering in one-on-one situations...Can move in reverse, but shuffles his feet, causing him to look choppy trying to turn in transition...Struggles to find the ball with his back turned and can be beaten over the top...Looks hesitant in his initial charge and does not have the speed or range to handle two-deep coverage...Will pursue plays on the perimeter in run support, but when the action is inside, he looks passive and late to arrive, failing to use his arms well to disengage from blockers...Hard tackler, but ducks his head, causing runners to slip off some of his hits...Does not run as fast as his timed speed indicates.
Agility tests: 4.46 in the 40-yard dash...345-pound bench press...512-pound squat...327-pound power clean...43-inch vertical jump...31 5/8-inch arm length...9 1/8-inch hands...Right-handed... 32/41 Wonderlic score.
