A-TowN.- Posted November 1, 2010 Share Posted November 1, 2010 (edited) Free Agency- Matt Light, OT Patriots - Definitely an upgrade over Baker at this point. Still has solid feet and great pass protection along with some good run blocking. Still something left in the tank, as well as being a vet.or- Zach Miller, TE Raiders - Provides us with another great TE that can help move along Palmer. Can come and give Tony a break while he is close to the end of his career. Good blocker and solid pass catching TE.Draft1. Justin Houston, DE UGA - This guy is a solid player with Brandon Graham's work ethic. Great athleticism and a good start off the snap. Works hard and has good size. Can shed blocks, great tackler, and he has good speed moves. Is versatile and has one of the best motors. Plays the pass and run very well. Can learn a lot from Abe.alternative pick: Jeremy Beal, DE Oklahoma 2. Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin - BPA at a position of need, even if we did get Matt Light, this guy can be groomed and be a definite starter at either LT or RT. He has what it takes to play both spots IMO, and a vet like Matt Light could def help him. Good athlete. Very good pass protector, long arms. Holds up to bull rushers, and uses his hands great. Good slide. Stays on his blocks and locks on. Good power and is a great run blocker, just ask John Clay. Has a great mean streak and will be good for our Oline coach since he likes nasty players. Already built for our system fairly well.alternative pick: Joseph Barksdale, OT LSU 3. Titus Young, WR Boise - Great route runner, and very quick/agile. Runs solid routes and shows clean cuts when he does. Imagine what he could learn from Roddy. He has solid hands and can create great seperation. A willing blocker and a play maker. Could really utilize the one on ones he will recieve assuming he will start, he has great hand eye coordination and good focus. Plays bigger than he is IMO.alternative pick: Ronald Johnson, WR USChttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPM5ttLp_Qg4. Mason Foster, LB Washington - May not be here, in any case if he isn't I think Bynes, Mouton, Bradham, Moten, L. Wilson, or Herzlich could be here. Foster is the leader of Washingtons D. Great instincts, very smart. Has a high football IQ. A good tackler, and leads by example. Could push for a starting job. Has good range, may lack 40 time speed but his game speed is great. Shows good physical toughness, and is always getting his nose in the action. Great awareness. A good coverage LB with ballskills. Bilal Powell, RB Louisville - Tough nosed player that always keeps his feet moving. Great cuts and good vision. Good size and is very quick. Has the speed to slip away from defenders. Good awareness. Very hardworker. Could recieve the NFL workload. Dynamic player, and can burn defenders or break their tackles. Not blazing speed, but good game speed.5. Bilal Powell, RB Louisville - a quick RB with great vision. Hits the hole hard and makes excellent cuts. Is very versatile, and can catch the ball. Shows explosiveness, and a great burst. Hard worker. Can take the workload. Change of pace back, with deceptive game speed. Quicker than fast. Keeps his feet moving and very tough. 6. Johnny Patrick, CB Louisville - Another Louisville player, but both have impressed me. Johnny is a strong CB and can be very aggressive. He is not afraid to come up in the run game. He can bump and run or play off man, which is what we run. He has good instincts. Good hips, not stiff. He always sticks with the WR right on his hip and has his head on a swivel. Reminds me a little of McCourty from Rutgers, just a hair slower. He is still very fast, with long strides. Is very fluid and reacts wells. He could learn a lot from our experienced CBs, plus he has good size. (playing LCB)7. Greg Salas, WR Hawai'i - I think he will slide here bc he hasn't been in a real NFL type offense system. He doesn't do much blocking, which can be taught, especially because he is a hardnosed kid. He reminds me of Miles Austin in a way, and could be a good project player. Don't expect him to make the team, but he is a hardworker so there is a chance he could. He is hard to bring down is a YAC type of WR, this is why he reminds me of Miles. Has good hands, and deceptive speed. Nice size and speed.alternative pick: Demarco Sampson, WR SDSU 7. Tejay Johnson, S TCU - Good size and speed. Can play either safety spot. Has great range and pass coverage ability. Comes up in the run and tackles well. Will compete for both S jobs.7. Alex Henery, K Nebraska - Best kicker in Nebraska history. Has a long very strong and accurate leg. Has hit several past 50 yards. Also no harm in bringing Bryant some competition, even though Bryant has been money. comments much appreciated Edited November 1, 2010 by A-TowN.- Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
