Cardinals select...Antrel Rolle, CB, Miami.
Rodgers. Not even close. All the RB's are gone and he's best value IMO.
I'll go with Rodgers if for no other reason that I would love to see another Pac 10 QB go to the desert and fail. Yeah I'm sadistic, so what?
Carlos Rogers or Antrel Rolle
They targeted CB with this pick.
Rodgers (6 of 7)
Has to be Rogers, IMO.
i'll go w/ rodgers even though denny might do something not expected but he passed on rothlisburger last yr so he needs to take a qb here
ROOT for Rolle
It'll be A. Rogers.
Could be a trade here with 6:00 to go........
If Aaron Rogers doesn't go here, and I don't believe he does, he falls into the 20's.
Rolle is the pick for AZ.
BUT...this is the area at which we'll start seeing some trade action. There are still two or three strong CB's available and Barron is sure to draw some interest if he falls much further.
I am beginning to think Aaron Rodgers might go in the late teens, and that has to suck for him.
By the way, Matt Leinart goes #1 overall to Cleveland next year. Write it down.
Rolle it is.
Mike Williams in free fall
How can skins screw this up?
6 for 8. Not too bad so far.
I think me and Canadian Boyz Fan are tied.
Aaron Rodgers maybe, this ESPM simul web cast stinks.
Supposedly, Washington really likes Carlos Rogers. That is about the ONLY way MW drops past Washington.
I think if Washington drafts Williams we will go defense with the first 3 picks. There is likely to be a lot of height at WR in the NFC East this year
Antrel Rolle, CB, Miami
Height: 6:00.1 Weight: 202
Overview: Regarded as one of the premier cornerbacks in the nation, Rolle has exceptional closing ability and is one of the team's fastest players. Because most teams don't throw at him, he often blitzes from his cornerback position. Rolle plays the run extremely well and can also return punts and play on special teams coverage units. Rolle was widely considered the top defensive back prospect in South Florida during his playing days at South Dade (Homestead, Fla.) High School. He was a Parade All-American choice and rated the second-best prospect in Florida and Dade County by the Miami Herald. He was a member of the Dallas Morning News National Top 100 list and was named to the prestigious All-Gridiron Team by Sunshine Network for 2000. He also performed well in the classroom, graduating with a 3.8 grade point average. While excelling at cornerback, he was also one of the state's best return men. Rolle recorded 86 tackles and three interceptions, returning one for a touchdown, as a senior in 2000. On offense, he had four catches for 160 yards and a touchdown in 2000. He added 85 tackles with three pass interceptions and broke up five passes as a junior in 1999, when he also returned six kicks (three punts, three kickoffs) for touchdowns. Rolle was one of four true freshmen to letter at Miami in 2001. He appeared in eight games, recording eight tackles with an interception. He started twelve games as a sophomore, earning All-Big East Conference first-team honors in 2002. Rolle totaled a career-high 66 tackles (48 solos) with two sacks, six stops for losses, seven pass deflections and an interception in 2002. The Sports Administration major followed that sophomore campaign with 51 tackles (42 solos), 3.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage, two interceptions and seven pass break-ups in 2003. He was a consensus All-American in his final season, making 58 tackles (37 solos) with 6.5 stops for losses, an interception and six pass deflections, but was hampered late in the year by a foot sprain. Rolle closed out his career with 183 tackles (129 solos), 4.5 sacks for minus-36 yards, 16 stops for losses of 105 yards, three fumble recoveries and 21 pass deflections. He gained 73 yards and a touchdown on five interceptions, 203 yards and a score on 13 punt returns (15.6 avg) and 44 yards on a pair of fumble returns.
Analysis: Positives...Has a big, athletic frame with solid overall muscle tone, trimmed upper body with good arm and chest definition, well-developed bubble and hamstrings...Self-motivator who pushes his teammates due to his hard work ethic...Shows good short area quickness and agility...Changes direction well, maintaining balance and quickness in transition...Has a good feel for the pass and makes almost instant decisions when attacking the ball...Shows a smooth flow with his feet in transition, taking proper angles and accelerating out of his breaks...Can close and recover down field...Takes clean angles to the ball out of his breaks and has the body control to make adjustments on the move... Physical wrap-up tackler whose loose hips give him the opportunity to quickly turn and run...Excels in press coverage, showing the strength to jam and reroute receivers at the line of scrimmage...Anticipates the quarterback to jump the play in zone coverage and is very effective covering the slot in the three-wide alignment...Quick and balanced through his backpedal and shows that extra gear to chase down the ball in the air...Has the power and hand strength to compete working inside the box and is quick to react and come downhill in run support...Plays off blocks well and takes good angles to string plays out... Has a good feel to fit in tight quarters when working through traffic...Can squeeze rush lanes, stay low in his pads and drive the fullback back through the hole...Natural hands catcher with the leaping ability to make the tough grab.
Negatives...Can be fooled by play action and is not as quick to react to the ball when playing outside the box, taking too many chances and will get caught peeking into the backfield...Better when playing in the short area, as he does not have the sustained speed playing off the receivers in man coverage...When the quicker receivers defeat his press, he is a little too stiff in his hips to immediately recover and give chase...Needs to use his hands better to prevent the receiver from using double moves to gain separation.
Agility tests: 4.54 in the 40-yard dash...325-pound bench press...425-pound squat...313-pound power clean...32.5-inch vertical jump...4.10 20-yard shuttle.
