Oh No Its The Cops Posted March 7, 2008 Share Posted March 7, 2008 If Trevor Laws is available with our second second round pick, TD better snag this kid. Sure he is only 6'1" but then again so is Ellis, and honestly how often do you see a DT get 112 tackles in a season. Not to mention he blocked I think 7 kicks in college. His motor never stops, and he's got an amazing instinct to the ball. His work ethic and discipline are also very impressive...He gained 30 pounds in two months before the combine, working out 3 times a day and eating 5 times a day! It paid off, he was first among DT's in the bench press with 35 reps and also first in the vertical leap at 30.5" which means he has pretty impressive strength and explosion. He just knows how to use every inch he has to an advantage. Where he impressed most was in his positional drills, where he seemed very fluent, energetic, and explosive. I even heard Mike Mayock say that he listed his height as a negative and not Ellis's because he just couldn't find anyting else to put. Its all positive. And a real good character guy, which is now rather high on Blank's priority list.I'm not saying he is better than Dorsey or Ellis at this point, but a great value in the second round for sure. I am very curious to see what he can do in the NFL. If it was a perfect first day of the draft, i would hope it would be 1. Jake Long 2a. Brian Brohm (pending his and other QB's pro days) 2b. Trevor LawsAnybody else feel the same? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
