Joe Burnett Central Florida Cornerback

Michael Hamlin Clemson Strong Safety/Free Safety

Otis Wiley Michigan State Strong Safety/Free Safety

Cody Brown Connecticut Outside Linebacker/Defensive End

Anthony Heygood Purdue Outside Linebacker

Devin Moore, Wyoming Running Back

Pannel Egboh Stanford, Defensive End

I have a question about texas tech lineman in one of the few college games ive been able to watch they talked about the spacing between the lineman and how it differed from a traditional set up. How would that affect their transition to pros? Also is this the same for other spread offenses?

I don't want to give a answer for every OLiner in a spread offense here. The spread makes it a little easier for the QB, because edge-rushing DE's have a longer way to go, on the other hand, it's easier to get a inside move, if the OLiner doesn't move well.

I think, like always, you just have to look closely at a player, look how he moves, only then you can guess if he might work out in a traditional set up.

My guess is: Teams will draft these guys later until they have experience in how they react to a pro offense ... right now this spread OLine is still pretty "new", so NFL coaches don't know how these players work out in the NFL.

I would like, especially Reed, because of his athletic upside. Even if he's only used as backup, you can use him in 3rd and short or goalline situations, because as soon as he's on the field. he's the strongest player, he WILL get a push for you which is exactly what you want in these situations ... if in addition he has no problems pass blocking at a pro level, he would be a huge steal.
