Senior Bowl 2017 preview

The Senior Bowl practises begin on Tuesday (1:15pm EST) with workouts until Thursday and the game taking place on Saturday (1:30pm EST).

Here are some of the players to monitor and why…

North roster

Cooper Kupp (WR, Eastern Washington)
Can he shine against good competition? He certainly did it for Eastern Washington. It’ll be interesting to see if that translates here.

Rasul Douglas (CB, West Virginia)
How does he measure? (Height, arm length). He was a turnover machine at WVU in 2016, can he flash in practise and make a big play in Saturday’s game?

Desmond King (CB, Iowa)
He’s not big — so how does he measure? His production regressed in 2016 so can he regain some momentum here?

Obu Melifonwu (S, Connecticut)
Big things are expected of Melifonwu at the combine. Let’s see it. Stand out in practise. It’d be nice to see some physicality too.

Kareem Hunt (RB, Toledo)
How big is he? The Senior Bowl game is a good platform for runners. The combine will be bigger for Hunt. It doesn’t look like he has a second gear on tape.

Chris Wormley (DT, Michigan)
The trench warfare in Mobile is the most entertaining part of the week. OL vs DL. Wormley has the length, size and quickness to excel.

Haason Reddick (LB, Temple)
Will he work out completely at linebacker or will he get some EDGE work too? Can he shine like Deion Jones a year ago? How big is he, officially?

Dion Dawkins (T, Temple)
A big tackle with a lot of potential. O-liners can do a lot for their stock in Mobile. Dawkins could jump significantly with a good week working against guys like Dawuane Smoot.

Dan Feeney (G, Indiana)
Does he get any looks at tackle? How long are his arms? Can he perform as consistently well here as he did on tape? He’s really good.

Adam Bisnowaty (T, Pittsburgh)
Arm length. Big key here. Bisnowaty also has a chance to work at tackle and guard this week and flash. The Senior Bowl is always big for OL vs DL.

Julie’n Davenport (T, Bucknell)
Small school talent — can he show he belongs while playing next to some big names.

Zach Banner (T, USC)
How big is he? Is he as big as advertised? Does he struggle with leverage during drills?

Dawaune Smoot (EDGE, Illinois)
His get off is so quick on tape so let’s see some dynamic EDGE rush in practise. Explosive on his day, let’s see if he can get off blocks too.

Ryan Glasgow (DT, Michigan)
His brother had a great Senior Bowl and really boosted his stock. Let’s see if Ryan, a defensive lineman, can cause these big name O-liners some problems.

Jaleel Johnson (DT, Iowa)
Really strong interior rusher coming off a decent season. This is a great stage to promote his talents. Can he flash quickness?

South roster

Montravius Adams (DT, Auburn)
How good is he? Some people really like him. I’ve always felt a bit ‘meh’ watching him. Here’s the chance to impress.

Ben Boulware (LB, Clemson)
He looks like he was born to play in the AFC North. Will the other players gravitate to him as you’d expect? Can he continue to stand out?

Justin Evans (S, Texas A&M)
He has first round potential. Let’s see how big he is first and foremost. Can he make a big play in the game?

Evan Engram (TE, Ole Miss)
All he did in college was make plays. With a few rising stars in this TE class, Engram needs a strong week. Catch everything.

Tre’Davious White (CB, LSU)
Just a really good player — he has an opportunity to confirm his status as a first round pick. He’ll catch Mike Mayock’s eye.

Matt Dayes (RB, NC State)
Underrated, tough as nails running back. How big is he? Can he continue to run hard and have a big day in the game?

Ryan Anderson (LB, Alabama)
Every single week he made plays for ‘Bama. Can he continue that here without the star-studded supporting cast?

Cam Sutton (CB, Tennessee)
Length, length, length. This is all about the arm length. +32 inches and he could be on Seattle’s radar. He’s a dynamic player with a great personality. Is he healthy?

Antonio Garcia (T, Troy)
Could be the star of the week if he performs. There’s always one tackle who emerges in Mobile. Garcia is smooth in pass pro but needs to be nastier as a run blocker.

Dalvin Tomlinson (DT, Alabama)
He was essentially Jarran Reed in 2016 for ‘Bama. Can he flash some pass-rush moves this week? Good player.

Jordan Willis (EDGE, Kansas State)
How long are the arms? Can he have a big impact during pass-rush drills? This is a nice test for him against the South O-liners.

Forrest Lamp (T, Western Kentucky)
Does he get snaps at tackle or just guard? Can he live up to the increasing hype? It’ll be fun to watch him next to Antonio Garcia if he plays some left guard.

Ethan Pocic (C, LSU)
He’s listed at like 6-7 — is that accurate? And if so, where do they line him up this week?

O.J. Howard (TE, Alabama)
Dominate. Keep blocking well, catch some passes. Howard is a first round pick and can prove he’s a class act here. Catch every pass.

Daeshon Hall (EDGE, Texas A&M)
Seattle-born pass-rusher who had big games and quiet games at A&M. How long is he? Can he have a big week in drills?

Carlos Watkins (DT, Clemson)
He had a big year in terms of production but the tape is a bit underwhelming at times. Can he shine in the OL vs DL drills during the week?

    Test

  3. Hawkfaninmt

    It’s up again!

    Cooper Kupp is more than welcome to trade Cheney for Renton!

  4. rowlandice

    I think Ryan Anderson will be surrounded by some talent in this game! Just not from Alabama. I’ll be watching the OL and DL in this game. Even thought Shead’s injury has opened up a potential major need at DB, I still think the Hawks will be looking at linemen on both sides of the ball. I wouldn’t be surprised if they traded down a few spots for an additional 3rd, then went best defensive player available with the 1st pick, then went OL, DB, LB, DL in some order in day 2 and 3.

  5. GoHawks5151

    Ryan Anderson is one of the most interesting prospects in the draft. He just makes plays in every game. Little bit of rush ability, can drop into a zone and a hitter. Would be interesting to see him as a Hawk. Cam Sutton is a stud too. Be interesting to see how he measures and moves this week.

  6. Hughz

    Will the kick step technique impact us taking a CB in the first round? Seems to take a year to pick up and I’d think we’d want a starter right away with the first pick.

    • NathanM

      Typically guys have sat for a couple years but Sherm started 10 games his rookie year, taking over after injuries to Trufant (IIRC… and others). Part of the reason for guys waiting has been good players ahead of them and part of it is learning the technique so I wouldn’t totally rule out a rookie CB starting. If he can learn quickly with the technique and his responsibilities in the system we could see a rookie starter considering how shallow our CB depth has become.

      • CharlieTheUnicorn

        If you can play, you can play. I would rule nothing out in 2017.

      • Coleslaw

        Also, we can work out prospects, so we can tell them to do whatever we want and see how they react and how they look. we can find the guy who picks it up best

  7. icb12

    Carroll Phillips on the North Roster Too. OLB/DE for Illinois.

    I’m interested to see how he does.

  8. Volume12

    Iowa DB Desmond King. 1st round pick 10-15 years ago.

    Love his physicality. I think he could be an Antoine Winfield type of corner. Interested to see how he measures and performs.

    • East Side Stevie

      Im very high on him as well! Glad to hear Im not the only one, This past season nobody would throw his way they were scared of him but he consistly made plays: Se game against rutgers he made a touch down saving play on the electric Janorian grant. Very physical intelligent high charracter Db

      • Volume12

        Gotta see how he runs though.

        As a pure slot guy, LSU’s Tre’davious White is very appealing. His tackling could be cleaned up, but even if a guy has great technique? Seattle is going to teach them their way of doing it. ‘

        ‘Eyes through the tighs.’

        • Volume12

          *thighs.

          • East Side Stevie

            I would like D king in the 2nd round and I heard Iowa’s stand out LB Josey Jewell is coming back for his senior season so looks like Just D king and Jaleel Johnson will be the lone 2 hawkeyes to get drafted unless Cj beathard gets a day 3 look

  9. Volume12

    Oohh. Houston LB Tyus Bowser (6’3, 240 lbs.) is here? Also played Bball. In only 8 games this year he had 47 tackles, 12 TFL, 8.5 QB sacks, 3 PBU, and 9 QB hurries.

    And I’ve recently seen comps between Troy OT Antonio Garcia and Dallas OT Tyron Smith. I do see a lot of Smith in Garcia.

    • Rob Staton

      Garcia looks really good in pass pro. Would like to see more of an edge in the run game.

      • Volume12

        There’s some nasty there and a mean streak. Just needs to show it a little more consistently.

        • Volume12

          This was just the Clemson game

          https://mobile.twitter.com/BenFennell_NFL/status/822567542594146305/video/1

        • JT

          He flashes the nasty sometimes, but it’s not consistent across the several games of film I’ve seen. My big question with him is strength/power in his base to move mountains in the run game. Love him in pass pro tho. If he tests long and athletic, he should go Round 1.

        • Wall Up

          Glad to see more are onboard with his potential. More time in the weight room could give him that edge to be better on runs. Cable will be able to instill that edge because the desire is there. He could compete for LT or RT.

          If C-Ham & Bolles are gone, Garcia could be their guy, either via trade dn or with 26. I still hold out hope for C-Ham, Garcia & Rasul in that order, with moving up if need be. That would be 3 starters that will give a spark to the club.

          • Wall Up

            If there is no 2nd pick, Garcia 26, Rasul @ 78 with trade up from 90.

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      Bowser has some very interesting measurables listed V12. Might be worth keeping a very close eye on this guy. A position of need and a rare size combo for a LB as of late. (I like the multi sport aspect, another indicator when it comes to the Hawks)

  10. Jason

    Did a mock if we drafted heavy on the oline early and went with defense in the mid rounds…

    26: R1P26
    OT GARETT BOLLES

    58: R2P26
    G DAN FEENEY
    INDIANA
    90: R3P26

    VILLANOVA
    229: R7P8
    RB JOE YEARBY
    MIAMI

    • AlaskaHawk

      That would be an interesting draft if it broke that way. I think if they start with offensive pick it is likely they would go defense in the second and offensive line in the third. Real good mock though.

      • BobbyK

        I don’t see any scenario they go OL with their first two picks. I don’t see Fant or Glowinski benched for a second round rookie. The only OL I can see getting replaced with a first or second round pick is a tackle. I don’t see them drafting depth in the second. The biggest problem with this line was their inexperience. I don’t see how they get better with two more rookies (unless they were top 10 type of picks, which they won’t be).

  11. JT

    So much talent in this year’s group, even with a few guys declining at the last minute. Gotta watch this group like hawks.

    One name to keep in mind – Jordan Morgan from Kutztown Univeristy. Small school LT who’s listed at G for the Senior Bowl. He has some truly explosive plays in the limited tape i’ve seen, and looks the part athletically.

    I’m excited to see the measurements for the OL & CB’s.

  12. Volume12

    I don’t think he’s anything special, but Michigan RB De’Veon Smith has caught my eye since last week. Same exact size and style as Spencer Ware. Probably will test very close to him as well. For his tiny hands, he catches the ball extremely well too. Got a call up from the Shrine to the SR bowl. Toughness personified.

    Could be a nice target late day 3 or as an UDFA.

  13. Trevor

    Great prep write up for my favorite week of the year. Thanks Rob.

    I like the Senior Bowl Practices even more than the Combine. I have found the last couple of years the guys who really shined in the one on one drills particularly in the trenches have inevitably gone on to be good players early. Think about Noah Spence, Javon Hargrave, Deion Jones last year for an example just to name a couple of guys.

    Also Vannett showed really well in last years pass catching drills and showed he was more than a blocker. Seems like the Hawks scout it pretty closely.

  14. Volume12

    Oh, I’m still laughing at this. Look at BB’s face at the end. He’s in the background. 😂

    https://mobile.twitter.com/uSTADIUM/status/823366845545742340/video/1

  15. Trevor

    Some other guys I can’t wait to see who I think with shine this week

    Ryan Switzer (WR) NC
    Gerald Everrett (TE) South ALB
    Taywan Taylor (WR) W.Ken
    Keionta Davis (DL) Chat
    Vince Biegel (LB) Wisc

    Taywan Taylor in particular just looks like a Seahawks WR to be. Big time character guy / leader who is ultra productive. He will have a big chip on his shoulder and will be a steal for someone in Rd 3-4 IMO.

    • Volume12

      I really wanna see Forestt Lamp’s measurements. While I do think he’d be a great guard, there are guys 6’4, 34″ arms, with the foot speed that are OT’s. David Bahktiari, Duane Brown, Jason Peters, Michael Over, Kelvin Beachum, Marshall Newhouse are a handful of names that are at that height (a couple not so good). It can work.

      • Volume12

        Rees Odhiambo is another one. Like Lamp, there would be a lot of positional flexibility.

        His tape against ‘Bama reminds me of Khalil Mack’s vs Ohio St.

  16. Trevor

    I guess the Browns asked Watson to play in the Senior Bowl and he declined. Selfishly I would have loved have seen him but for a guy who has played as much as him the last 3 years I say it was a smart move.

  17. Jason

    Do the Steelers get a pick taken away from them for withholding Bell’s injury?

    • DLep

      In the pro football doc’s opinion on twitter, they should get punishment if the Seahawks do.

    • CharlieTheUnicorn

      It is unknown what they knew and when they knew it… John Clayton believes this helps Seattle’s case.

    • Trevor

      Of course the won’t the Steelers always get the benefit of the doubt because of the beloved Rooneys.

      Still was a bonehead move by Pete but Goodell and the NFL office are such a joke really.

    • Rob Staton

      The problem the Seahawks have is they are considered repeat offenders.

      • Curt

        Unfortunately they probably will. Heard someone on podcast/radio in Seattle submit the case they should not because this is totally different situation from the stupid minor OFA infractions that the NFL have deemed so bad.
        This is a regular/post season brain fart by the coach trying to protect his player and this would be their 1st offense not 4th in this area. He said the NFL looks at this all the time with other teams and if they do add this on to the previous then it would be hypocritical on their part.
        But we all know the NFL/Roger is subjective and can/will look at it any way they want.
        IMO the Bell situation should help us but of course Roger doesn’t care about our opinion.

  18. Volume12

    For those that care, even though the site is still down, there is another place other than draft breakdown to watch prospects. Noonkick.

    • HawkFan907

      Draft Breakdown has been a game changer for me. I’m amazed at the amount of resources that are available on the web. I’ve always loved crunching numbers and looking at measurements but now there is video available as well.

  19. CharlieTheUnicorn

    “#1 scoring offense vs #1 scoring defense in Super Bowl”
    “We know how that turned out last time”

    The Falcons are a complete team, the last team that was high scoring… also had a subpar defense (The Broncos in SB48). The Falcons have a decent defense, one fully capable to holding the Patriots to around 30 points. If they do that, they will win.

    I’m hoping Bellicheat and company plan on double teaming Julio, because Sanu will eat them up on offense…. I also see the duo RBs for the Falcons being key to the game. They can be involved in either the passing game or the rushing attack…..
    As for the Falcons defense, remember what happened when Seattle faced NE in NE…. they held them down due to man to man concepts, mixing in some zone. NE won’t be able to get wide open looks like the AFCCG… I’ve already heard the crowning of the Patriots as SB51 champs (3 point fav) on talk radio, but I think this might turn into a very entertaining SB after a few dogs.

    And I would much rather see a team win a SB it’s 1st time, than a team win it’s 5th.

    • Ed

      I just want the Hawks connection DC. Ryan is a classy guy too. Falcons were my darkhorse SB winner last year, I was just a year early. Dang

  20. Ed

    Teams that need QB’s that could aide in Hawks plight for more talent and choices:

    Browns
    49ers
    Bears
    Jets
    Bills

    Top QB’s that will go in 1st/2nd round

    Trubisky
    Kizer
    Watson
    Mahomes

    It’s possible 1 (Watson) and 2 (Trubisky), but don’t see Kizer or Mahomes going earlier than a move up from 2nd round by any of those teams that don’t get QB in top 10.

    If so, Rob has shown plenty of mocks where the Hawks have multiple value picks at 26 (700 points), so I would love this year for them to drop back to 33-35 (580-550 points). That’s a 150 points, so either Hawks swap places in the 3rd round and get a 4th or they add more to the trade. I say swap.

    36 (Bears)
    58 (original)
    67 (Bears)
    90 (original)
    99 (comp guess)
    103 (Bears)
    103

    • Wall Up

      That’s a bit much for a 26. Maybe just a 3rd with the 2nd.

  21. HawkFan907

    The two positions I will be looking at this week more closely than the rest are DT and RB. As far as DT’s are concerned, I’m looking to see if Jaleel Johnson makes the jump to possibly becoming a late day one pick. He had a lot of production, but speed may be an issue.

    At the RB position I will be looking for the player who becomes the Alpha male. We need a bruiser to compliment our current backfield to help wear out a defense. Let’s see if we find him here.

    • Hawktalker

      Bruiser? There is no better bruiser fit than Samaje Perine. It is got to be a nightmare on the defensive side trying to get that guy down. I guarantee you nobody is going to like it, except for the Seahawks. I think he is just what the doctor ordered, but, I think he’ll go so high that we will not be able to justify picking him over some of our other needs, DB, OT, LB and even better luxury/impact pics like Buddha Baker if we could get a hold of him. If we can fix the offensive line, I think our running game would almost fix itself with the quality group we already have. Just need them all to stay healthy and I’m not sure they are made that way.

  22. Cameron

    So, I know WR isn’t exactly high on anyone’s radar around here, but I wouldn’t mind seeing us take one in the mid rounds. One guy who’s really caught my eye is Cal’s Chad Hansen. This guy is 6’3 190 lbs and fast. I think he’ll test extremely well at the combine.

    He would make an excellent upgrade/replacement for Jermaine Kearse. For a big guy he has great footwork and often wins clean release off the LOS. He can also high point and frequently wins at the catch point.

    Check him out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOuz6OYp7do

    CBS has him ranked 26th (196 overall), which is 5th-6th round, but I seriously doubt he lasts that long. He’s recently been getting some buzz from the likes of Daniel Jeremiah.

    • Trevor

      He looks like a guy with a ton of upside.

    • D-OZ

      Jordan Morgan is who I want the Hawks to come out of this draft with. Play’s with great leverage and good foot speed. Hand’s aren’t bad either. Bit of a mauler.

      • D-OZ

        Ruetter has Hansen in his 3 round Mock.

  23. Hawktalker

    As we talk about what positions we should draft and where, given Shead’s injury and the consensus that Lane should be upgraded anyway, shouldn’t we be looking at to good DBs to fill-in?

    As far as quality picks go, especially since we are losing #5 for a violation, I think we really only have 4 quality day 1-2 picks available to us, unless we pull some trade-down magic and pull a fifth out of it.

    What another great post Rob. I’m sure glad I don’t have to pay to read these, but I would.

    Position priorities for our top 4-5 picks (NOT in any order):

    2 DB/ CB: we talk a lot about King and say we add one more)
    1 LB: (chronicles of Riddick?)
    1 OT : (best OT available)
    #5: with a trade down – Safety (pipe dream Budda, Obu wan or best available), RB (best RB available – come on Perine), what else in the needs category?

    Seems like D line might be a luxury we can’t afford if we’re going to address our needs, hopefully even less an issue with a very RED FA signing in Campbell. WR seems like a distracting luxury pick as well given our needs. Just for the sake of discussion, a competitive OT FA signing adding some maturity and stability to the OLINE could really settle the group down and help the open the running and passing game. Feedback?

    • Volume12

      If they get a 3rd round comp for Bruce, they’ll get a 5th for Sweezy. If they lose the 2nd rounder in the Sherm thing, its bumped up from a 5th. So they’d have 2 5ths in other words.

      Seattle will find 2-3 UDFAs that outperform the higher picks anyways.

  24. Coleslaw

    are we going to get arm measurements and testing numbers?

    • Volume12

      Tommorow morning.

      • Coleslaw

        Sweet!

        • Volume12

          Testing #’s at the combine.

    • Rob Staton

      Measurements take place on Tuesday

  25. Coleslaw

    2. Kevin King (after trading down into early 2nd
    2. Haason Reddick
    3. Adam Bisnowaty
    3. Marcus Maye
    3. Elijah Hood (I personally would take Mixon, keep him on a short leash and trade him if it starts to go sour)

    • Coleslaw

      We might be a good spot for Mixon because we would actually keep him at #3 and he’d probably only get 10 or less snaps a game. If he kept his cool and out of trouble for a few years he would deserve a shot in my eyes.

      • Kenny Sloth

        If we drafted him and are trading him, who would want him?

        • East Side Stevie

          Have a feeling he falls a lot later than the 3rd round we might could grab him in the 5th but its very possible he doesnt even get drafted Its that touchy feely of a subject a lot of teams wont even entertain the idea of drafting him and the absolute only reason he would be drafted as early as the 3rd round is if its a poorly run organization that have a history of making questionable decisions

          • East Side Stevie

            Dont get me wrong I like his talent and there is no denying he can play but he was in the BIG 12 like Rob says about Texas RB foreman he is reluctant to be sold on him because of the competition level

        • Sea Mode

          Dallas, of course…

      • Rob Staton

        Seattle won’t draft Mixon. Schneider said they’d never draft a player that hit a woman.

        • peter

          Rob’s right. Though I think JS’s comments were more from a spousal abuse point…..but he did say it so it should be kept in mind.

          • Rob Staton

            The Seahawks don’t need any more distractions right now.

  26. Volume12

    Dane Brugler: Had a scout tell me today, the best player at the SR bowl is LSU CB Tre’Davious White. ‘Great kid. Instinctive and tough.’

    Jags meeting with Pitt OT Adam Bisnowasty
    NE and Denver meeting with Nebraska S Nate Gerry
    Dallas meeting with ‘Bama LB Ryan Anderson
    Jets meeting with BYU RB Jamaal Williams
    Carolina meeting with W.Michigan OT Taylor Moton- is said to be a mountain of a man
    Ravens meeting with Florida LB Alex Anzalone and Bucknell OT Julie’n Davenport

    • Rob Staton

      No surprise at all on White.

      This looks like one of the best Senior Bowl groups in a while.

  27. Misfit74

    Here is my mock (featuring Brubaker at 26) picks 1-32: http://walterfootball.com/mocks/publishedmock/58048?ti

  28. Sea Mode

    Speaking of undersized OL, here’s one to look at: OT Erik Austell, Charleston Southern. (6-3, 285)

    Super smart, described as a “coach on the field” type, and highly athletic, with a mean streak that comes from playing with a defender’s mindset (played DL in high school). 84 knockdown blocks in 2016.

    http://americansportsnet.com/news/all-american-tackle-erik-austell-paces-charleston-southerns-rushing-attack

    If we gave Joey Hunt a shot pretty much just based on smarts alone, then this guy might get a late-round shot as well when you throw in the athleticism and toughness. “Smart, tough, reliable” is the Hawks catchphrase.

    Was interviewed by the Redskins during Shrine week. Pauline had some good notes on him:

    “it was difficult for defenders to shed [Charleston Southern T Erik Austell] once he was able to get engaged with them [during East-West Shrine Game practices].”

    “[Austell] plays a little high, sometimes,” Pauline wrote, “but he also displayed a strong lower body when he was able to pass set properly and sit low.” The 6-foot-3, 285-pounder actually began his career with the Buccaneers as a defender before moving to the offensive line in 2013. He went on to start 12 games that season and has been an anchor ever since, though he may well have to try to latch on with an NFL squad as an undrafted free agent. Jan 21 – 3:46 PM

  29. Volume12

    Rob, you like LSU LB Duke Riley?

    • Rob Staton

      Not watched him. What you think?

  30. Trevor

    Keionta Davis (DL) Chattanooga is a guy to really keep an eye on this week. He could be a huge riser this week.

    I thought he had a great game against Alabama and has a ton of upside as an Edge rusher. Great size at 6-4 and 260lbs. Also has the 33″ + Arms the Hawks want. Can’t wait to see him in drills as I think he will pop. If he tests well at the combine he could definitely be a big riser at least from my untrained scouting eye.

    Another guy I want to see is Tarrell Basham from Ohio. Ton of production and looks the part but how will he fare against better competition.

  32. Trevor

    Julien Davenport has both the longest arms (36 inches) and wingspan (87 1/2 inches). Those are key numbers for an OT as we all know. Can’t wait to see how this guy plays in the drills.

  33. Trevor

    Corn Elder was a guy I was really curious about but arm length less than 31″ so I guess he is out. Too bad because he seemed like a nice lot corner prospect.

  34. Trevor

    Daeshon Hall is the perfect physical profile for an edge guy. 6-5 265lbs 34 1/2 inch arms. Another guy can’t wait to see in drill. He is a PNW guy isn”t he?

    I know we have a ton of other needs but if somehow someway OJ Howard is on the board the Hawks have to take him. That is a freak of an athlete. He is a great blocker too. 6-5 1/2, 250lbs, 34 inch arms and 10 inch hands. If you were going to build the perfect TE that is it. He is the Julio Jones of Tight ends.

    Can you imagine Graham and Howard at TE with Baldwin in the Slot and two speedsters in PRich and Locket outside. WOW

      Depending on the choices also available, I’d also LOVE to see us draft OJ Howard. Dual top shelf TEs would give us great flexibility on offense and add even more security for Wilson under pressure. He would help or offensive line and passing game and run game all at the same time. He’s one of my favorite prospects in the entire draft.

    My 2nd favorite OL Lamp has 31 inch Arms do definitely a Guard. He is a T-Rex which has to hurt his draft stock.

    Also Garcia sub 33″ inch arms but barely. Not going to help is case a potential 1st rounder.

    That is the thing about all these small school guys is most have a physical limitation that caused them not to get scouted by one of the big schools. On the positive side most have a big chip on their shoulder because of that and succeed as a result anyways.

    Another one of my favorites scratched off the list. Cam Sutton /Tennessee. 29 2/8 arms 8 2/8 hands

    New post up, Trev!

      lol Thanks

    Carlos Watkins at 6035/312 w/ 10.38 hand and 33.5″ arm.

    Ideal DT measurements. He is another guy who has a chance to make some $ this week.

    Taywan Taylor at 510/511 has 32 3/8 arms and decent sized hands. I’m anxious to see how he runs.
    [Taywan Taylor Western Kentucky WR 5110 198 32 3/8 8 7/8]

    That being said, I’d like us to draft/find a big possession receiver more than a speedy, smaller player. With PRich, Baldwin, and when Lockett returns unless McEvoy develops significantly, that’s an area we could find an upgrade and really help this offense on 3rd downs, especially. Maybe a guy like Amba Etta-Tawo or Darboh mid-late? What I wouldn’t give for Corey Davis or Mike Williams…
