  1. Ty!!! HTTR!!!
  2. I think a person who might be a PR nightmare would show up more in EI test than the Wonderlick.....look these billion dollar companies have such a finite commodity that I'm sure they invest tons of money/resources for every player/udfa...some prospects inspected more than others...from what I remember (and I've only heard a few WL questions) I was fairly surprised at the complexity....felt a lot like the LSAT type...which is being able to connect dots, formulate and conceptualize...which sounds to me a lot like FB schemes and the reasons why these schemes are run...now, I believe the WL test is timed...so there is an added "psychoanalytic" side to this test...stress...how well do you handle it?...how fast can you connect these dots...If I were a team I'd film my prospects taking the WL test...see their body language...reactions.... /I'll quit giffin'...just bored and playin' around...
  3. why bother with the Wonderlick then? /gif kidding
  4. No offense taken at all Morne ...I was about to say that in our postings (IQ variation/perception by position...i.e. kicker vs QB) and knowing your grasp on FBall and our Redskins I assumed it would be superfluous to you....and I'm lazy...also, that's why I decided to use Ray's Wonderlick Test score..he had like a13 or something...crazy low...but he anchored an incredible defense for a decade and a half...
  5. is a lil' concerning....but, "Complex Defenses" are overblown in my opinion...I'll steal one from GMSM, "Football Players" or instinctual/athletic players can more than make up for any perceived lacking in "IQ"...see Dexter Manley or any Wonderlic Test... See Randy Moss and Ray Lewis....even our very own newbie Terrel Pryor (what was he hung over...sheesh...lol)...if Foster falls to us? It'd be mana from Heaven...HTTR!!! or Robinson!
  6. I haven't watched CM but the way you describe him it sounds like a hybred H-Back...except not rb/te but rb/slot...a slot-back...wing-back?...I got it!!...SWing-Back!!...
  7. man, that does get me pumped!
  8. makes sense... lol whoa what now?? break that down for me one more time..i think i understand what youre sayin but im not sure...
  9. true, true...but, I think, I'd rather go ahead and spend on Zac and Hankins and that would also give us flexibility in the draft...to, maybe, reach a lil' with more pics and develop them for a few years...rbs in this draft could be starters up until the late fourth...early fif...I think our Oline's center/guard area needs almost as much work as our Dline..I wouldn't be hurt if we spent a 2nd on a Guard/Centre...or took a chance on one like we did with that kid from USF...Reiter...still shocked we let him get away...
  10. just being casual i suppose... I seriously have to hope that there really is a method to their madness...cause from my laymen's view, I don't get a lick of it...
  11. how much would his vet min be?...with our luck...it's been since Terry Allen that an older rb, with "issues", has worked out for us...I can't think of one that even came close or was serviceable...second thought, naw don't sign him...
  12. Hap Anniversary, Happy!!! HTTR!!!
  13. I'd equate it to you are almost always better off, as a defendant, to take your case to the day of the trial (unless the prosecution makes you an unbelievable deal)....because the prosecutor almost always will give you a better deal...least that has been my experience...
  14. I ain't posted nuthin'

  15. DAN FEENEY, OG Indiana For many, the Hoosiers are synonymous with basketball but with Feeney joining former teammate and Green Bay Packers 2016 second-round pick Jason Spriggs as a first-team All-American, football -- and offensive linemen, in particular -- is becoming the new "in" in Indiana. The Hoosiers' up-tempo scheme presents some questions about how quickly Feeney could transition to a more traditional pro-style attack but scouts are excited about his blend of size, agility and consistency. While helping to pave the way for future NFL standout running backs Tevin Coleman (Atlanta Falcons) and Jordan Howard (Chicago Bears), Feeney allowed just one sack in 37 starts heading into his senior season. His ultimate draft position, however, could be influenced by medical evaluations as Feeney missed a handful of games in 2016 due to a concussion after previously missing the entire 2013 season with a Lisfranc injury. STRENGTHS WEAKNESSES STRENGTHS: Four-year starter, with each coming at right guard. Among Feeney's impressive traits is his initial quickness, which allowed him to easily slide laterally for reach blocks and pull. Feeney possesses very good agility for a man with his square-ish frame, showing good flexion in his lower body to adjust to moving targets at the second level. Feeney delivers a powerful jolt to defenders and keeps his feet moving through contact. Feeney has a tenacious playing style which will endear him to OL coaches. He shows good anticipation of where defenders will be and looks to finish his blocks, showing the nastiness to pancake opponents when he feels them off-balance. Voted a team captain for the 2015-16 seasons. Described by the Indiana coaching as possessing an infectious personality and is revered for his commitment and work ethic. WEAKNESSES: Possesses the agility to handle the left guard role but has only played on the right side for the Hoosiers. Effectiveness in pass protection (only one sack allowed over first 39 starts) is inflated due to Indiana's up-tempo attack, which prioritizes getting the ball out quickly. Can get too high with his initial punch. Requires a careful medical evaluation. Missed four games in 2016 due to a concussion sustained in the second week of the season (Ball State), as well as the entire 2013 season due to a Lisfranc injury, requiring a medical redshirt as a true sophomore. IN OUR VIEW: Assuming his medical questions are answered, Feeney will be among the first interior offensive linemen drafted. His blend of size, agility and power make him scheme versatile and he plays with the nastiness and technique to quickly ascend to a starting role in the NFL. COMPARES TO: Xavier Su'a-Filo, Houston Texans: Like Su'a-Filo (who played in an up-tempo scheme at UCLA), Feeney is likely facing a schematic transition in the NFL. The traits - including quickness, agility, power and toughness - are undeniable, warranting top 50 consideration and helping Feeney project as a quality starter, as Su'a-Filo has emerged in his third season at left guard in Houston. wouldn't Mind trying out Erik Magnuson OT, Michigan as guard in the later rounds eitherERIK MAGNUSON, O
  16. Big ILB... KENDELL BECKWITH, ILB LSU Beckwith is LSU's top returning tackler with 84 stops in 2015, adding career-bests 10.0 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. That came on the heels of a sophomore season in which he took over the starting job midseason and went on to finish second on the team with 77 tackles, including 7.5 tackles for loss and a pair of sacks. As a freshman, Beckwith saw action in 12 games, finishing with 11 tackles and his first career sack. He was a consensus four-star recruit by national recruiting services coming out of East Feliciana in Clinton, La., where he finished his senior season with 91 tackles, including 17 sacks. Beckwith was the No. 2-ranked recruit in Louisiana by ESPN, Rivals.com, Scout.com and 247Sports. STRENGTHS WEAKNESSES STRENGTHS: An every-down linebacker for the Tigers, Beckwith is extremely patient with a natural feel to sift through the trash, find the ball and make the stop. He is a fundamentally sound tackler with strong hands to hook, stay low and drop the ballcarrier, using leverage to wrap and finish. Beckwith has the power and physical mentality to take on linemen at the second level, acting as a hammer between the tackles vs. the run game. A three-year starter, Beckwith is viewed as one of the veteran leaders in the locker room. WEAKNESSES: While his patience works to his advantage, it can also be a curse as he tends to wait for the ballcarrier, causing him to be late mirroring and losing the angle. Beckwith has adequate closing speed once he locates his target, but he isn't a rangy athlete and his play speed is average at best, limiting his effectiveness near the sideline. His tight hips and tall pads also show in the open field when attempting to break down in the backfield or dropping in coverage, which leads to spacing issues. IN OUR VIEW: With the size that dwarfs some defensive ends, Beckwith is built for the NFL game with the strength to be a downhill masher between the tackles. However, his athletic profile is average-at-best for today's pro game, lacking the speed to be reliable outside the hashes or in space. While he will likely always be a 4.8-type of athlete, Beckwith can help his NFL draft stock with improved anticipation and read/react skills as a senior leader in coordinator Dave Aranda's defense. Although he isn't in the same first-round discussion as teammates Leonard Fournette and Jamal Adams, a spot on day two of the 2017 NFL Draft is a realistic goal for Beckwith. I also like this guy...if he slips to us in 2nd round...but I doubt that happens FORREST LAMP, OG W.Kentucky A four-year starter at Western Kentucky, Lamp developed into one of the most consistent left tackles in college football and performed extremely well against elite non-conference opponents like Alabama (2016) and LSU (2015) - Crimson Tide defenders Jonathan Allen and Ryan Anderson singled out Lamp as one of the best blockers they have faced. A two-star offensive tackle recruit out of high school, Lamp was undersized and went overlooked by the bigger programs, committing to Western Kentucky. After redshirting in 2012, he earned a starting role immediately, starting the first three games at right guard before moving to left tackle for the final nine contests to earn All-Sun Belt Honorable Mention honors. Lamp started all 13 games at left tackle as a sophomore, earning a spot on the All-CUSA Honorable Mention team. He again started every game (14 starts) as a junior in 2015 to earn First Team All-CUSA honors. For the second straight season, Lamp earned First Team All-CUSA honors as a senior, despite missing two games (12 starts). A physical, technically-sound blocker, he works hard to keep rushers in front of him in pass protection and rolls his hips as a run blocker to create movement. Similar to Zach Martin as a pro prospect, Lamp might be able to survive in the NFL at tackle due to his coordinated, square-blocking skills, but his lack of ideal length makes him better suited as an interior blocker. With his body control, core strength and stubborn mentality, Lamp has the necessary traits to make the transition to guard and start early in his NFL career. STRENGTHS WEAKNESSES STRENGTHS: Balanced movement skills with low hips in his shuffle. Resets well with lower body flexibility and lateral quicks to sit in his stance, stay square and mirror. Quick, efficient coil with the grip strength to lock out and maintain spacing between him and rushers. Aggressive hands to answer counter measures. Broad-shouldered frame with developed build. Proper kickslide depth to push speed rushers away from the pocket. Aware of his surroundings to pick up spins and stunts, closing inside rush lanes. Physical run blocker, rolling his hips at contact and creating movement. Blocks with a stubborn mentality and competes with the inner confidence required to face NFL linemen. Rarely ends up on the ground. Reliable playing temperament in both practice and games - voted a two-time captain. Strong preparation habits and knows his opponent. Four-year starter with 51 career starts (48 at left tackle, three at right guard), including 42 consecutive starts at one point. WEAKNESSES: Adequate wingspan, but below average arm length. Looks to get a head start protecting the edge, setting too aggressive outside and late protecting inside moves. Hurries his technique vs. speed, leading to wild limb use. Average lower body mass and frame appears maxed out. Reliable square blocker, but can struggle with defenders on his edge. Limited starting experience inside at guard. Missed two games as a senior due to a leg injury (Sept. 2016) and was forced to sit out the Senior Bowl due to a high ankle sprain (Jan. 2017). NFL COMPARISON: Zach Martin, Dallas Cowboys -- While unfair to compare him to an All-Pro NFL lineman, Lamp has a similar square blocking style as a college left tackle with the technique and tenacity to dominate in smaller quarters.
  17. about this guy...he seems intriguing... Jarron Jones DT, Notre Dame PLAYER OVERVIEW The 6-5, 315-pound Jones looked like the next big thing at Notre Dame until a torn MCL prior to the season ruined his 2015 campaign. Having already used his redshirt as a freshman, Jones gamely battled back, hoping to return in time to contribute. He sufficiently recovered enough to play a few snaps in the Fiesta Bowl loss only to suffer another injury - a stress fracture in his foot -- which limited his ability to practice this spring. Battling back from injury, unfortunately, has become the story with Jones, who missed the final two games of the 2014 season due to a Lisfranc injury. Before sustaining the Lisfranc injury against Louisville in 2014, Jones had recorded 40 tackles, including 7.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks and two blocked kicks. STRENGTHS WEAKNESSES STRENGTHS: Jones often lined up at defensive tackle for the Irish and certainly possesses the size and power to remain there at the next level. For a man of his size, Jones shows good initial quickness and flexibility to slip through gaps. His best asset, however, is his power and length. Jones generates a powerful bull rush, showing impressive upper body strength as well as leg drive to push opponents into the backfield. Even when fending off blockers, Jones does a nice job of reaching out and lassoing ballcarriers, dragging them to the turf. Jones' long arms and good timing make him effective knocking down passes and kicks at the line of scrimmage. WEAKNESSES: Teams are going to be hesitant to invest an early pick in any player who only played at a high level for one year and has already suffered multiple significant injuries. Jones started just one game in 2013 (20 tackles, including one tackle for loss) prior to his "breakout" junior campaign. On too many plays, he is washed out of the hole and doesn't show the same effort from snap to whistle. COMPARES TO: Stephon Tuitt, Steelers, -- Similarly built as the former Notre Dame standout - the No. 46 overall pick in 2014 by Pittsburgh - Jones offers a combination of length, strength and athleticism that is sure to capture the imagination of NFL teams operating out of odd and even fronts alike. IN OUR VIEW: A first-round pick on paper, Jones doesn't consistently play up to that level and the injuries are something the NFL will certainly need to take into account when grading Jones. When healthy, however, he has shown flashes of being a difference-maker in the middle. --Rob Rang (@robrang), Dane Brugler (@dpbrugler), 9/27/16 and I like the scouting on this guy.... QUALLS, DT Washington PLAYER OVERVIEW Much quicker and passionate in pursuit than his blocky build might suggest, Qualls emerged as one of the Pac-12's most disruptive defenders in 2016, earning First Team all-conference honors from league coaches with a career-high 32 tackles, including five for loss and three sacks over the regular season. Qualls may be a relative unknown outside of the Pac-12 but scouts on the west coast know him well, as he enjoyed a breakout campaign a season earlier as a replacement for 2015 first round pick Danny Shelton (Cleveland Browns), registering 4.5 sacks (among 26 tackles) despite missing three games with an ankle injury. While his build suggests a classic run-stuffer, Qualls' surprisingly light feet and awareness allowed the Huskies to feature him at both defensive end and even as a stand-up rusher, at times. He projects best back inside in the NFL but creative defensive coordinators will be intrigued by Qualls' unique blend of size and agility. STRENGTHS WEAKNESSES STRENGTHS: Possesses deceptive initial quickness and lateral agility for a man of his considerable bulk. Splits gaps with his burst, showing the core strength and flexibility to "get skinny" and disrupt the line of scrimmage. Keeps his eyes on the ball and is quick to peel off of blocks and pursue laterally and downfield in pursuit, showing good vision and spatial awareness to remain on his feet amidst the rubble, as well as surprising closing speed. At least adequate arm length and strength for the pull-down tackle and can deliver the emphatic hit when he has a clear path, bringing his hips and launching into ballcarriers. Effective run-stuffer when he keeps his pad level low. Projects as a possible goal-line fullback option given his quickness and bulk. WEAKNESSES: Has a cinder block-like frame with little room for growth and carries too much of his weight in the middle, leaving him off-balanced. Inconsistent pad level and snap anticipation, each of which contribute to Qualls' getting knocked off the line of scrimmage more often than his bulk suggests. Shows awareness in getting his hands into passing lanes but lacks the height and arm length to be effective in this area, contributing zero passes defended or blocked kicks over his career. Overly reliant upon a late spin move when his initial burst is contained as a pass rusher, showing a limited arsenal overall in this area. IN OUR VIEW: Given his considerable bulk, Qualls offers some rather unique traits with quick feet and a high-revving motor. His lack of length and inconsistent pad level are challenges which could keep him from starting at the next level but he could prove a valuable disruptor in a rotational role. COMPARES TO: Christian Covington, Houston Texans: At 6-2, 305 pounds Covington is a little longer and leaner than Qualls but both offer the quickness and motor to help collapse the pocket from the interior.
