Still on the board


Recommended Posts

If I have this right...






Bailey and Doss are still on the Board. Got to hope that Steinbach,Johnson,Witten and a few others sneak up like Foster and Pace so that we can get a shot at Doss, Peterson or Bailey. Would Nelson from Iowa be an upgrade to consider at center?

Ken Hamlin

College: Arkansas

Year: Junior

Height: 6'2"

Weight: 205

Birthday: January 20, 1981

Strengths: Arkansas free safety Ken Hamlin is a headhunter who flies around the field making big plays for the Razorbacks. He posted eight double-digit tackle games in 2001, including a 19-tackle performance against Tennessee with a fumble recovery thrown in for good measure. Hamlin dominated Arkansas' game that year with UNLV, when he had 11 tackles, two tackles for loss, half a sack, an interception, two pass deflections, and a fumble recovery. He has started every game of his college career and recorded at least 100 tackles each season.

Hamlin is a physical safety that can come up and play like an extra linebacker and is fast enough to run with the wideouts. He is an explosive hitter with a knack for causing turnovers. At 6'2", Hamlin has the height to match up with taller receivers and plays bigger than his 205 lbs.

Areas for Concern: Hamlin was arrested in May for his second drunken driving offense in 14 months. He plead guilty in July and served 10 days in jail. To the surprise of many observers, Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt chose not to suspend Hamlin, explaining that the jail experience seemed to have had a profound impact on the player and that Hamlin had expressed sincere remorse for his actions.

On the field, Hamlin is a "pure" safety that lacks great man coverage skills. While he has nice size, with his style of play, Hamlin needs to add some bulk to his lanky frame in order to survive the rigors of the long NFL season.

Espn says this about Ken Hamlin


Summary: An intimidating safety in the Steve A****er, Rodney Harrison mold who could turn out as the top safety in this draft after a few years in the NFL, but his stock doesn't reflect his potential right now because of off-the-field issues.
