Maryland OT Bruce Campbell








What is your overall feeling on Maryland OT Bruce Campbell? I have a feeling that we could draft this guy if the top 4 OT are off the board at #13 or #17.

Supposedly looks really bad on tape.

I have my doubts too. I'm just not sure if one of the top OTs will be there for us to draft @ #13 or #17? We may have to look elsewhere.

Campbell's biggest problems are lack of experience, poor technique and nagging injuries. I can deal and work with the first 2, but the last one is problematic.

The upside though is that he's highly motivated, works hard and has physical skills for a tackle that are through the roof. I think he's less of a risk than most people imagine, mostly because he seems to want this pretty badly (whereas a lot of guys aren't willing to put in the work necessary to be great).

Because of his work ethic and desire, I'd take Campbell over Anthony Davis any day of the week, even though Davis is presently far ahead of Campbell in terms of technique and overall playing experience.

What are Davis' character issues?

Where did I say Davis had character issues?

Looks like a bigger version of Vernon Davis. He does got some power behind his punch I will tell you that. If he is mentally all there with no off the field issues like with Vince Young (before 2009 season), Lawrence Philips or Tony Mandarich, than I'm all for him. I'm sure Vernon Davis would lend a hand to a fellow Terp.

If the other 4 OTs are off the board, we can also assume that Bradford, Berry, Suh and McCoy are off the board. That means that one of (or several actually) will be on the board when we pick:

-Jason Paul Pierre: The highest ceiling in this class. This guy has what it takes to be one of the best pass rushers in the league.

-Joe Haden: Best corner to come out in the last several years. Could be an upgrade over anyone we have in the secondary...and this is clearly an area that needs help.

-CJ Spiller: Dynamic playmaker who will stretch the field and be an elite return specialist.

-Dez Bryant: Physical makings of the next Andre Johnson, who can give us the best receiving core in the league (Crabtree, Bryant, Davis???? wow!)

-Rolando McClain: a QB of the defense who can take over the play calling duties and be the leader of that defense that we've been lacking.

-Jimmy Claussen: A potential franchise QB. This cannot be stressed enough.

-Dan Williams: A true NT that doesn't necessarily fill a huge need right now, but does play the second most important position for our team (QB being first).

At least 3 of these players will be available to us. And we pass on one of them in order to take a 2nd round OT? This guy can be Kwami Harris for all we know, what good will that do for us???
I think there is a big difference between Kwame and Campbell, first off he is an athlete while Kwame was big and slooow both physically and mentally. From all accounts Campbell is self driven and he can make it. Kwame was sort of untalented and lazy and in no way athletic. If a guy has talent plus willing to work he can do it, but I think Kwame never would have made it. I do think he is a bit raw but I think any OT may have to sit a while anyway. By the way, I am not saying Kwame was dumb, just slow. He was very slow reacting and I do not see that as something you can do much about.
