I don't see this guy as some kind of project. He played

at USC and that means he is pro ready...at safety. If you

were playing USC it would be wise to avoid this guy. That

right there may explain his lack of numbers. When D. Hall

went to Oakland, who did they throw at? D. Hall because

the other guy is trouble.

Alphabet didn't go to USC, he went to Berkley. And plenty of USC busts. See: every WR, most RB's, some QB's.

If they busted it wasn't because they had not played

college football at it's very highest level. Name a

school where all their players succeed in the pros.

There is not one.

The way I look at the draft is to go to the great college

programs first and foremost and then look for real standouts

from the small schools. Lawrence Sidbury looked like a pearl

in a swine's snout at Richmond. It was easy enough to pick

him out because he made every play.

I agree. There isn't one, but that was what you insinuated saying he comes from USC so he can play.

I am more than insinuating I am straight out saying "he can play"

because he doesn't even sniff the field at USC if he can't play

and play very well.

There is some security in drafting guys from the top schools because

they have already been through a heck of a screening process.

I see what your saying, but then you look at players like Tim Tebow from a top school, who is an EXCELLENT college player and also wouldn't sniff the field if hey couldn't play. But that sure as heck doesn't mean he can play in the Pro's

:ph34r:

Danny Wurfel had a weak arm and although I don't remember

he may have had perfect accuracy and mechanics. The weak

arm is not something he could correct. Tebow is big and

strong and can whip the ball in there. He is being thrown

under the bus on style points and somebody will look past

all the negative stuff and pick up a possible gem. I say

possible because if Tebow offers the ball to the defenders

like Leftwich does they will bat it out of his hand just

like they do with Byron. That will be the same regardless

of whether you are from Marshall or... mighty Florida.

Tebow has already made changes to respond to the criticism

and cleaned up his mechanics. It should be fun to watch how

he comes out and it costs us nothing!

Tebow was just an example, and not me trying to knock him. Personally, I am rooting for him and I hope he does well in the NFL.

If you are saying no matter what school they come from it is

still a crap shoot then I would agree but only up to a point.

The best formula for success is, as I have stated: first go to the

biggest winning schools in the country. Second, look for gems shining

in the smaller schools.

The "great ones" can still come from anywhere but you need a plan.

I saw this idea not too long ago, and heard it reiterated on the NFL network. While I understand we do not need another safety, what is the likelihood we look at this guy as a more athletic LB? Thoughts?

Darnell Bing II

I've been saying the guy is going to have to try & make it at LB in the NFL if he wants any shot for 2 years now. He'll wind up just like Bing.
