anybody looking like a JJ clone or close to it this year in your opinion?
who is your biggest boom or must player?
do you see us drafting any guys and moving them to a different spot...(Bruce Miller/Ahmed Brooks)?
who are your top favorites this year..guys you would love to get?
No JJ clones this year. Probably none for a long long time. Dont think people understand how outrageous of an athlete Watt is. His combine last year was legendary after a terrific junior year.
6'5", 290 with 34" arms. Ran a 4.78, which is a good time for a player 30 pounds lighter. 34 reps, a 37" vertical, 10' broad, and the scariest number, a 6.88 3 cone. To put this in perspective, he was a guy about 90 pounds heavier than Claiborne and Jenkins, but jumped substantially higher, just as long, and had a superior cone time. Crazy athleticism, hard working, dedicated.
Biggest boom or bust? Tannehill. The guy will probably be selected at number 7, but wont be ready for years. Could be great, could stink.
Look for a couple late rounders to be versatile players the team may convert: Jeremy Jones (CB/S) of Wayne State; Chris Anzevino (C/G) of Kent State; Matt Broha (DE/LB/TE) of Louisiana Tech; Tavaris Cadet (RB/WR) of Appalachian St; Jason Slowey (C/G) Western Oregon. Expect one of these guys to be drafted by the team. Lay heavy money on one of these guys.
Too bad the team laid heavy money on Ahmad Brooks because I think Andre Branch is going to be really, really good. Peter Konz, DeCastro. All these guys are future stars. Love Bobby Wagner, Brandon Brooks.
