  1. what in tarnation
  2. During the NFL Scouting Combine telecast on Sunday, draft analyst Mike Mayock frequently compared Wisconsin linebacker T.J. Watt to a notable pass-rusher who has had a stellar career with the Green Bay Packers: Clay Matthews. At first, it might seem like a lazy comparison; after all, both players are white pass-rushers who come from strong football families. At first, I suspected that was the bulk of the reason for the comparisons. And then Watt went through his workout at the Scouting Combine and he showed something remarkable: that he and Matthews ended up nearly identical in terms of their athletic profile. This is notable for Watt, as some draft analysts thought he needed a good showing in Combine drills to keep him in the conversation for the first round. He absolutely got it. Now, it is important to mention that this does not necessarily mean that they project as similar players; instead, it just means that they possess many of the same physical tools. Let’s take a look at the workouts for the two players at their respective Combines: Clay Matthews T.J.

  4. could be a 7th rounder Zach Banner HT: 6'8" WT: 353LBS. POSITION: OT SCHOOL: USC ARM LENGTH: 34 7/8" HANDS: 10 3/4 Strengths Massive man with good upper-body strength. Has length and girth to overwhelm smaller opponents. Able to withstand a bull rush thanks to enormous frame. Powerful road-grader who blasts holes open as down-blocker and generates movement with his base blocks. Leverage not always necessary to produce push at point of attack. Won't find him on the ground much. Decent athlete for his size. Functional combo blocker. Initial kick-slide is fairly smooth. Can make life miserable for pass rushers when he latches strong hands into their frame. Could play right tackle but would need help against edge speed. Balance and redirect are adequate. Weaknesses Weight concerns are a huge issue. Has seen weight balloon to 385 pounds. Pass pro is a major concern. Could be too big and bulky to handle NFL edge talent. Lacks athleticism and quickness to recover when beaten. Slower than desired out of stance. Has to open early and lunge to protect the edge in pass pro. Rarely flat-footed at punch, relying on girth over technique. Takes wide route to his target with punch. Doesn't mirror well enough to keep defender from escaping from side door once engaged. Lack of bend and high center of gravity could make move to guard a challenge. Has had issues with penalties during time as starter at USC. Sources Tell Us "He's a really big guy. That's his body type. If he doesn't work his tail off to manage it, there is no doubt his weight will shoot way up again. Everyone is going to write him as a guard but I'm writing him as a tackle. They all have issues. I think we could work around him at tackle." -- Western regional scout from AFC team NFL Comparison Trent Brown Bottom Line Rare size, but some teams will question whether he can bend enough to be a functional NFL guard. As a tackle, he lacks quickness to consistently protect the passer, and teams might focus too heavily on that shortcoming. Teams who focus on Banner's strength -- drive blocking -- should be rewarded with a starting right guard who is average in pass protection, but who can help turn run creases into running lanes.
  6. Here is the website: I had a pretty ****** draft but it was kinda fun for someone not too great at doing mocks since I don't watch much college football. Try it out and reply with what you came up with. I also used the fanspeak board. You can choose different draft boards you want to base the mock off of. 31: R1P31 EDGE TAKKARIST MCKINLEY UCLA 63: R2P31 S DESMOND KING IOWA 95: R3P31 EDGE DEMARCUS WALKER FLORIDA STATE 136: R4P29 C ETHAN POCIC LSU 174: R5P30 DL DEANGELO BROWN LOUISVILLE 249: R7P31 K ZANE GONZALEZ ARIZONA STATE
  7. Straight up for Jake Locker
  8. It's not flashy but Robinson is a beast. I wouldn't hate the pick.
  9. I'm super happy about this move. My friend is a huge Chief fan and I asked him about Poe. He said he could just be a product of Justin Houston and Tamba Hali /other defensive players OR he could be a super star. I'm hoping and predicting the later.
  10. I used to drool over combine numbers and genetic freaks but Margus Hunt ended all that for me.
  11. Lmao he has no idea what waiting is. Wouldn't last a day in the Army
  12. I'm not sure either. I haven't heard anything about him leaving, not like he's gonna break the bank either
