I am glad to see people enjoy it as much as I have. You can tell the people that watched it before the draft because he if you saw him, he became one of your pet cats. He is just fun to watch.
do you have the fsu tape from 2012? or iowa this year? i'm curious how he did against the big schools.
there is not squat of him that I have found but that.
He is easy to find as he is the tackle with the long hair. #93
He is a juco transfer with only two years in the MAC. He had a foot injury but tried out at his pro day anyway. His scores were terrible outside of putting up 31 on hte bench press. Watching him pursue you can see he runs faster than that.
Between the poor pro day and the lack of experience I can see why clubs were hesitant. He is still a fun player. If he makes the team I am going to be tempted to have a jersey of his made.
Very encouraging. If we can hit on 2 of these 7-rounders then that would be fantastic.
I have not found any other decent footage of him either except a short interview video. Would like to see some more of him.
That's a baaaaaaaaaad man right there.
Who is blocking him in that video, Doug Free?
Not Poe. Poe was physically a monster put his actual play at Memphis was not as impressive IMO. However, he was doing it against superior talent so there is that. Poe really blossomed when he got into the Pros and got with a good scheme fit.
That was about as much fun as I have ever had watching a highlight reel for a player. I know...he fell to the seventh round for a reason. But, holy guacamole!!!!!!! did you look at that? Love him.
He does look impressive in this video but we will have to see what actually transpires when he gets in pads. His agility numbers don't project to what we see on film which could mean that he is simply playing against talent that is not as good as what he will face on a day to day basis. Obviously, that's true but, can he sustain the same type of speed, power and quickness against NFL players? I hope so. I was impressed with his ability to rush from the up position. I wonder if he might project to the outside at all? Would be interesting to see him on the strong side. He's kinda short but hey, that's not a show stopper.
Let's just hope his ceiling is not through the floor.
He put up 31 at his pro day. He ran like poo-poo though. Was invited to the combine but did not participate.
Word is that he had a foot injury and that he has ran a 4.96 at that weight when healthy.
Word is that he ran so poorly due to a foot injury that had kept him out of the combine.
Would explain a lot. When you look at him on tape, his burst and pursuit just look so much better then what his times indicate. When you watch him on tape, his ability to shift weight and adjust in the run game are very impressive and that is something that is not really effected by the talent level he's playing against. If that is good, then that is good regardless. However, when you look at his agility numbers, they don't come across that way in the 3Cone or Shuttle, which should really be outstanding for this player, based on what you see on tape.
An injury would make a lot more sense.
4.96 is fine and dandy at that weight...might have something here, can't wait to see.
Oh and here is my source for that 4.96.
