Take a look at Calvin Barnett. I have a feeling your going to like this kid.
Where do you find the tape on all these guys? Is it all online somewhere or are you a college coach with access to the national database?
You can also find cut-ups and whole games on youtube.
Love that website.
In my estimation I like Dix better than Pryor because of coverage skills must of watched different games. Keep up the great reviews.
Will do! Whenever I get a chance. Super busy this week
I disagree. Not a huge Dix fan. Think he's athletic, but saw him get beat a lot. Especially in the two biggest games of the year auburn and bowl game
Double digit sacks two years in a row.. 4 sacks against georgia, half a sack against ole miss. half a sack isnt much, but it means something when you get to the qb in big games.
3 straight years of over ten TFL.
guys got some skills
I agree. He's too inconsistent. I don't see an instinctive player there-- just a good athlete behind an excellent supporting cast. Would rather have prior or brooks later on.
Starting to dig Pryor in the 1st if he's there, if he's a better football player than any of the DT, you take him......
I agree. Only DT I take before him would be Donald
we will be lucky if he is there at 16,he is exactly what we should be looking for in a safety and i am sure he will move to the top 15 by the time of the combine.
Calvin Barnett (Oklahoma State) Scouting Report
Positives: Nice job of timing the snap count and penetrating quickly. Very powerful man made a lot of 1 handed tackles. Moves very well for his size. Has a really nice spin and swim move rushing the passer. Has position flex, has played both the 1 and the 3.
Negatives: Difficult time getting off blocks once initially blocked. Don't see a great motor. Whiffs and overpursues on a lot of running plays. Does not make enough play against the run. Does not know how to use his hands to get off blocks.
How he could fit on this team: I would probably play as a 1 in this scheme.
Overall feeling: This guy could present some value in the middle to late rounds. Definitely has that quick twitch we are looking for. I don't love the player, but I think he can improve with the right coaching.
That is what I've been preaching for months! His stock is going to blow up after combine
I'd like to see your feedback onVilami Moala if you feel like it and have the free time. Very underrated DT's that we could get after the 5th.
Great job, you nailed it. That is exactly what I was thinking. He could potentially be a Jay Ratliff type. Nice physical skill set, good production in a big program. Get him in the 5th, rotate him for a year or two and possibly get a pretty good starter.
Viliami Moala (Cal) Scouting Report
Positives: Really strong, powerful man. Violent with his hands. Plays with an excellent motor, never gives up on plays. Smart football player, excellent play recognition. Does a nice job of getting in QB's vision and disrupting throws.
Negatives: Not a quick twitch guy. Difficulty getting off blocks when pass rushing. No pass rushing moves. Whiffs on a lot of tackles on the running back. No explosion to his game. Rarely by the ball.
How he could fit on this team: 1 tech
Overall feeling: Not a huge fan. Don't feel he is a great fit for this scheme, does not play with explosiveness. Does not make enough plays for my liking. A rotational player in the NFL. Like Barnett much better as a mid to late round 1 tech.
Deone Bucannon (Wash St) Scouting Report
Positives: Plays in a variety of looks, cover 2, cover 3, and a lot of single high. Gives very little cushion in coverage. Excellent when used in coverage. Has a knack for coverage and knowing where he needs to be in helping out the corners. Tracks the ball in the air really nice, and plays ball really good. Really good at creating turnovers.
Negatives: Doesn't take the best angles on ball carriers. Difficulty shedding blocks in the run game. Does not possess elite athleticism. Not as physical as his size suggests, plays a little passive. Difficulty bringing ball carriers down, not a great open field tackler.
How he could fit on this team: Has the size of a SS, but his abilities are more fit for a FS. I think he could be used at either.
Overall feeling: Good player. I like him, not quite as much as Pryor, Ward or Brooks. But not too far behind. Does some things really nice, but his physicality and tackling scares me a little. I could see him paired up nicely with Barry Church. Hes a much better player against the pass then the run.
