And why I think he's the second best LEO prospect in the draft for us. No point explaining the rest of my opinion - the video should do that pretty well. With the possible trade down due to Noisegate (as much as we like to ignore it), Harold seems like a much more realistic pick for us, and I think he'd be a fantastic fit. Hope you guys enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXc5k9pwXAc PS: I accidentally listed his weight as 147 lbs instead of 247, and I said "horizontal" to the ground instead of "parallel." Minor things that bothered me, shouldn't affect the gist of the video though. I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts. EDIT: a few days later, not nearly as big of a fan. :/ still like his potential but wouldn't take him early.
I find this kid to be super raw but also an altheltic freak. For some weird reason, I believe in our staff's ability to coach up and develop talent, which we haven't done in years. If we have to trade down, I won't have a heart attack with someone like this kid being on the board late in the first. I had hoped he'd be there in the 2nd to give us added flexibility in the first, but it looks like Mike Tomlin is already looking at him as an OLB in the first. Thoughts? Defensive end Danielle Hunter (6-5 1/4, 251) had a 36 1/2-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-10 broad jump. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.47 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.95 seconds, which is really fast and shows his tremendous change-of-direction abilities. Hunter ran a 4.57 40 at the NFL Scouting Combine, which was the best time among defensive linemen. StrengthsFreakish combination of size, athleticism and explosiveness. Has long arms with jarring power behind his hands. When technique is right, he can stack and overpower tackles at point of attack. Fluid and agile in space. Uses length to bat down passes and disrupt the passing lane. Flashes winning spin move in pass rush, but needs to learn to set it up better. Uses arm-over inside move to set up tackles for loss. High-end tackle production for his position. Secondary motor to pursue and speed to chase leads to more tackle opportunities. Lead all SEC defensive linemen in "stuffs" (tackles for no gain or loss of yards) with 17. Active and energetic at all times. Continues to work to improve position vs. run and pass. Off-field character considered "squeaky clean" by NFL scouts. Has speed and agility to become special-teams star early in his career.
