Post containing possible draft picks profiles


Recommended Posts

I going on the notion that we will keep our draft picks as they are. With our 2nd or 3rd rounder the following prospects come to mind:

Wr Travis Wilson http://insider.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft/tracker/player?id=9261

Strengths: He possesses good overall size. Has above average height and is well built. A strong, physical receiver with deceptive speed. He is tough and aggressive. Not afraid to go over the middle. Shows good recognition skills. Does a nice job of using his frame to shield defenders. Also has a good feel for finding holes in zone coverage. He has big, strong hands. Does a great job of catching the ball in traffic. Has flashed the ability to catch the ball thrown over his head. He adjusts very well to the deep ball. Shows a bit of a burst when chasing down the ball in the air. He is a savvy and tough runner after the catch. Lacks explosive burst and elusiveness but is shifty and strong. Makes the first defender miss often after the catch. He shows good vision after the catch and will build speed as he goes. Breaks a lot of tackles and will carry defenders after the catch. He also has some experience returning kickoffs and shows some upside in that capacity. He's a hard worker and intelligent person. Has good size, strength and willingness as a blocker.

Weaknesses: Lacks explosive initial burst. Has good speed but not elite top-end speed. He's the type of WR that builds speed as he goes. He still can improve in terms of his double moves and crispness as a route runner. He will not drop very many passes but he does let the ball get into his pads too often and needs to learn to pluck with his hands more often.

DE Kamerion Wimbley http://insider.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft/tracker/player?id=9332

Strengths: Is tall and shows the room to add bulk to his frame. He is quick and athletic. Has above average speed. Shows good initial burst and acceleration when turning the corner. Shows decent closing burst as a pass rusher. Is a fluid athlete who can change directions without losing too much in transition. He pursues the run hard from the backside. Plays with a good motor. Is at his best when on the move vs. the run. He takes good angles, shows closing burst and is an explosive tackler. Is very disruptive when turned loose upfield vs. the run. Is a solid wrap-up tackler in space. Is an impressive athlete for the position. Shows fluid hips and does a good job when occasionally asked to drop in coverage on zone-blitz.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal starting experience. Has been a bit of an underachiever so far. Is undersized. Is tall but lacks bulk and needs to continue to get bigger. Might even be a 3-4 linebacker-type in the NFL if he can't bulk up. He lacks lower body strength and plays with a narrow base. Gets washed out too easily by bigger OT's that get into his pads. He needs to learn to play with more consistent leverage and must take on blocks better. Also needs to improve his array of pass rush moves in order to get off of the initial block and to fully maxizmize his speed and athletic ability.

DE Darryl Tapp http://insider.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft/tracker/player?id=9191

Strengths: Is well built and powerful. Is quicker than fast. Has great initial burst and anticipation skills. Has shown the ability to rush the QB from the outside and as an interior penetrator. He has good body control and balance. Is able to turn the corner with good body lean and shows excellent closing burst as a pass rusher. He is a powerful hitter who will generate some forced fumbles. He is quick, tough and active vs. the run. Has very good recognition skills. Lacks height but is squatty and well-built. Will play with leverage and does a good job of using his hands to disengage from blocks. He finds the ball carrier quickly, gets off of blocks in a hurry and pursues with a great motor. He takes good angles in pursuit and shows good closing burst as a tackler. Is a fine athlete for his size and shows good open-field tackling skills. Has also proven to be a great contributor on special teams. He plays with a great motor and is a hard worker.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal NFL measurables. Is short and has below average top-end speed. Is able to hold the POA at the collegiate level but taller, bigger OT's will engulf him easier in the NFL. Also is able to turn the corner as a pass rusher in college but lacks ideal top-end speed to do so consistently in the NFL. He needs to become more powerful in order to stay off of blocks as much in the NFL. He also needs to work on his array of pass rush moves as an interior and perimeter pass rusher.

CB Jason Allen http://insider.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft/tracker/player?id=9324

Strengths: A tweener DC/FS prospect. Possesses a very good combination of size, strength, speed and athleticism. He has developed into a playmaker both versus the run and in coverage. He shows fluid hips for a taller DB and is smooth in his turns. He shows burst when breaking on the ball in front of him. He has long arms, good leaping ability. Is a great weapon to have vs. bigger receivers, especially in the red zone and on jump balls downfield. He has above average ball skills and shows the strength to rip the ball away from receivers in the air. Is a big hitter for a DC/FS type. Fills hard and has developed into a very good open field tackler. His versatility will only be a bonus on draft day and it should allow him to get on the field earlier as a young player in the NFL. He has experience on the perimeter, as an eighth-member in the box, a matchup cover corner in the slot, and a more traditional safety in the deep one-half of the field. He also has the size, speed and tackling skills to play a big role on special teams immediately as a rookie.

Weaknesses: Lacks an ideal fit as an NFL prospect. Is he consistent and fluid enough to hold up on the perimeter in the NFL? If not, he will need to move back to FS and continue to develop his skills in space. He has good speed for his size but lacks elite speed. He can't afford to make as many recognition mistakes as he has in the past at the DC position and he doesn't show the catch up speed to recover if he does.

Also let's not forget the best sleeper in the draft

WR Mike Hass http://insider.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft/tracker/player?id=9352

Strengths: He has emerged as one of the most reliable and dangerous receivers in the nation. A tough, savvy, intelligent receiver. He has adequate height and is well built. He shows good moves beating press coverage at the LOS. He's a quicker than fast receiver who seems to consistently find ways to get open deep, despite his lack of good speed. He has a great feel for finding soft spots in zone coverage. He constantly sets defenders up and catches them guessing by using double moves. He has fluid hips and is a subtle route runner. His hands are outstanding. He adjusts to the deep ball as well or better than any WR prospect in this class. He can pluck on the run and he makes the tough catch in traffic. He's not afraid to go over the middle and he will hold onto the ball after taking a big hit. He shows good quickness, vision and awareness after the catch. He rarely makes a mental mistake and he has an uncanny knack for stepping up in clutch situations.

Weaknesses: He lacks ideal NFL measurables. He has just adequate size and below average speed. He does not show explosive burst or great elusiveness after the catch. He may struggle to get downfield as a vertical receiver in the NFL like he has in college. He does not have experience in the return game and does not show much upside in that capacity.
