Kayoh Posted March 3, 2013 Share Posted March 3, 2013 I think I have my first official prospect crush this year. I've been watching film, the senior bowl, the combine, looking over numbers, stats, measurements, everything, and the one guy that just shows up in every single facet of my scouting is Lemonier. He beat the best LT in the SEC, Chris Faulk, for TWO sacks against LSU, and in that game he was drawing CONSTANT double and even a few TRIPLE TEAMS. For a 250 lb DE, that is insane. You can really tell Fairly isn't around at Auburn anymore, because there is nobody on the inside drawing blockers away from Lemonier. Let's not allow ourselves to forget that Lemonier was playing on a defense coordinated by BVG. This kid is going to be an absolute stud, and is almost an exact clone of John Abraham and DeMarcus Ware when they were draft prospects. 6'3 1/2, 250, 4.55 40. Lemonier benched 225 27 times - that's exactly the number that Ware put up in 2005. 1.57 10 yard split, explosive on film, 9'11" broad jump, 34 1/2 inch arms...I just can't find a negative on this guy as a pass rusher. He clearly needs work against the run, but I would have to assume that if he isn't getting double/triple teamed all day every day, he'd have an easier time beating single blocks in the run game than he did at Auburn beating multiple blockers.I'd honestly be happy if we took Lemonier at 30. Some people might get irritated by it because it's a "reach", but at the end of the day when you see talent and you aren't 100% sure it'll be available at your next pick, reaching needs to happen.
