    Re: 2013 NFL Scouting Combine Thread



    Am I the only one who thought Reddick looked good in all the agility drills? Haven't heard much said about him today, but I saw a guy who looked like he checked all the boxes.

    Re: 2013 NFL Scouting Combine Thread

    Had to laugh about this one: Florida A&M LB Brandon Hepburn. Was just curious since he was one of the faster LBs. He's 6'2", 240 and ran a 4.68. But here's the best part (from NFL.com): He walked on to the Florida A&M football team while carrying a full academic load in biochemistry. During a summer internship, he successfully found a way to kill certain cancer cells in rats using copper-loaded nano particles. Hepburn dreams of owning a biochemical company so he can lead research that will eradicate deadly diseases.

    Whaaat?

    Meanwhile, somewhere in Knoxville, Tyler Bray was throwing beer bottles at cars.....

    I like DJ Swearinger too. Safety is stacked in this draft thats for sure. Not sure out of safety and DT.
    Swearinger is my favorite safety in this class. Even more than Elam.

    Isn't he more of a SS though? Not a centre field guy?

    I remember when Terry Bradshaw was playing for the Steelers whenever he talked to any reporters he came across as the biggest Bonehead that I have ever seen! However, he was living proof that you could be dumber than a rock and still be a HOF QB!

    Brains do not necessarily make a great football player!

    Holy shit. That's awesome. Oh but of course all football players are practically brain dead!

    Nooooo....Swearinger can lay some lumber, but that dude can cover. He lined up at corner and played press-man in some games.

    He seems to be largely liked but not lauded. It's very strange.

    I like Reddick. He would be a good pick up.

    You were right after all, Manti said the pressure/demands from the combine activities really affected him.

    Te'o said he was running 4.5's and 4.6's, he believes he'll do better at his Pro Day

    I was surprised by the LBs overall. Few of the top ones were impressive and most of the guys we're looking at like Minter, Teo, Reddick, etc. were 4.70, 4.80 etc.

    I was surprised both Minter and Teo were in the 4.8's. Maybe they will both improve on their Pro days.

    Re: 2013 NFL Scouting Combine Thread

    For DB's tomorrow, one guy I like is John Boyett from Oregon. He was the leader of their defense and when he realized he needed surgery after week 1, there was a lot of concern about how badly he'd be missed. In the end they put together some solid games on D for Oregon, but no question he was badly missed.

    I'll be really interested to see if he even runs the 40 with his knee problems. He's 5'10" but that's only an inch shorter than Ed Reed, and the Ravens are not one of those teams that writes off safeties for being under 6'2" or whatever. Height is not a prerequisite here.

    Boyett can play single-high (and not many really do in college these days, or so I have read) so that experience is a plus.

    I think I'll wait to see his 40 and his vertical (need that closing speed and ability to go up for the ball) but certainly he's a guy who could maybe slot in as what Ihedigbo was for us last year -- a decent guy who can fill in at either safety position. But with Pollard firmly entrenched in his role, it's clear we need to lean towards the FS / single high type, because we really have a lot of situations where the matchup dictates single high with Pollard down inside.

    Dude had 27 reps on the bench today -- no wonder people don't break his tackles much! A reasonable 40 with a surprising vertical and this guy could shoot up the board. Not sure what to expect though. When I have seen him, he's been more about being well positioned, knowing what he's doing, etc., more so than relying on athleticism. That's great; love to see that. But I do want to see some athleticism at some point because sometimes, even a great player like Reed, for all his knowledge and anticipation, it sometimes still just comes down to having to simply out-jump a dude (like that final bat-down against Houston in the playoffs the year before).

    Just watched some tape on him. Smart player, he has that more of an athletic side to him which I like, but he may need ot bulk up. Really high on him though, he's got the intellegince and instincts you can't teach. His stock is all over the player. More than likely would have to move up to the top half of the 3rd for him
