Character is what will cause him to be a bust
Edited my QB rankings after watching more of Carr. Moved him ahead of Jimmy G.
Has anyone been following theis reader mock that Walterfootball.com has been doing?
I was pretty excited that he chose one of my comments to post under there (As Cajun33)
I'm pretty much a badass sports writer now...
No your not. #dreamruined
I'm not a huge fan of Walter, but I do go to his site alot. I like how he always updates his mocks and his free agent rankings are always helpful.
I really enjoy his site. I like his scouting reports on all the prodays and combine workouts.
Some guys I'd like to see us get.
Preston Brown, MLB, Louisville. The physical ILB we lack right now. Woodyard is going to play the weak ILB, but we lack the guy who will go full-speed in to the line of scrimmage every play and blow up the run. That's what Brown does best.
Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, GT. We need an edge rusher and Attaochu will be available in the second. He's a raw but ascending player.
Devonte Freeman, RB, FSU. Best all around back in the draft. There are bigger guys available. There are faster guys available. None of those guys have the skill set Freeman has. He can catch, block, run inside and has enough speed to get the corner.
Marcus Smith, OLB, Louisville. Much like Attaochu, he's raw but has the ability to run the arc and turn the corner on OTs. A converted QB who is still learning the position. 14.5 sacks as a senior.
Devin Street, WR, Pitt. In another draft this guy would be a second round pick, but it just so happens that this draft is absolutely loaded with WR talent. 6'3" 200 lbs and had over 700 yards the last three years despite never having the same QB in consecutive years.
Billy Turner, OT, North Dakota State. I made a thread about him earlier.
Justin Ellis, DT, Louisiana Tech. A big 0-tech(6'2" 335) with some good athletic ability for a guy his size. Good strength, quickness and leverage. Plays a position we don't currently have filled by anyone who's even average.
Brent Urban, DE, UVA. Good size(6'7" 295) who has a knack for batting down balls at the line of scrimmage. Plays the run really well and gets some push rushing the passer. The one thing holding him back is injuries.
Jaylen Watkins, CB, UF. Prototypical size at 5'11" 195. The best of the available UF CBs in this draft, if you ask me. A much better football player than Purifoy and a better athlete than Roberson. Lacks physicality supporting the run, but he can flip his hips and turn with the best of them.
Aaron Colvin, CB, OU. Won't be able to help the team in 2014 because he tore his ACL at the Senior Bowl, but he was being considered in the late first round before that.
Now obviously I don't want us to draft all of these guys at all costs. If we draft Barr at 11 then Attaochu in the second round wouldn't make much sense.
Speaking of Purifoy, whatever happened to him? 2 years ago, I thought he was going to be a sure fire 1st round pick.
Nice list btw.
He was labeled a "better athlete than football player" then flopped at the combine. Both he and Roberson ran in the 4.6s.
Edit: Just googled his name and this popped up. Avoided getting arrested after being caught with drugs because he became a police informant then he didn't inform them of anything and now they want to arrest him again.
Yea I was thinking about making a thread about him because he was talked about around here. What an idiot.
Totally in agreement with the two LB's from Louisville. I hope we get one if not both and I think we will seeing as we had both in for visits.
Also a fan of Freeman, Turner, Ellis and Attaochu.
