  • Re: A look at the 2012 NFL draft

    Anyone watching the Army All American game tomorrow?

    Darius Hamilton, son of former Giants defensive player Keith Hamilton is playing in the game. He has his top 3 schools as RU, Cal, and Florida.

    He is the #5 prospect in the country. Hope he picks RU.

        Well I think Greg Childs WR ARK had one of the biggest games as far as Prospect wise in that Cotton bowl as he finally looked healthy and at least close to what he looked like last yr I could definetly see someone use a 5th-7thrd pick on him

          [quote user="BlueSanta"][quote user="nycsportzfan"]hey whats everyones take on Jerel Worthy? For some reason he just has a giant draft pick feel to him . I am split on how i feel about worthy. Sometimes he looks dominant and sometimes he looks like a slug lol His motor dosen't seem to rev 100pct of the time He certainly does Flash though! I guess i could see the appeal if we were to draft Worthy

          I think this kid has some questions about his fitness and dedication that could be answered at the combine 1 way or the other.

          I guarantee scouts watching him are wondering the same things. Does this kid take plays off? Is he a great player who is out of shape or mentally undisciplined? Or is he a ok player who has a few great moments. In his case, its really hard to determine what defines him, his great plays or the rest of them.

          I also wonder if he struggles with his weight. It seems his body has had a few tranformations during his college years. So I want to see how seriously he takes the combine. Does he come in lean and strong showing dedication to fitness? Or does he come in sluggish in body and mind.




          [/quote] ya he reminds me of the defensive version of Anthony Davis OT Rutgers from a couple a seasons ago . I wanted nothing to do with him and certainly heard it from a couple people on here but i just didn't trust his Work ethic and from what i here hes been a total bust! So as u said i think the combine is huge for worthy and i'll certainly get on board if he comes in looking good and like he has a work ethic in him

              Yeah all the Arkansas WR's except Hamilton did there thing last night. Wright got deep, Adams returned a Punt,Childs moved the chains.That team was a good football team this year. They only lost to LSU and Alabama

                Im usually against drafting interior lineman. Maurkice Pouncey was the only 1 I really liked in the last few drafts. However Im really high on Peter Konz and have been for awhile.The only thing that worries me with him is his injury history. I think Konz could come in and start day 1 at Center or Guard. The Guy is a monster 6'5 315. Im really concerned about this Oline I just wonder if the Giants are as well. They may feel Petrus is the answer and who knows maybe he is. I just feel like the Giants need to add an immediate starter along that line.Which means a high pick interior lineman or FA. The running game can not be this bad again next year

                          Heres a little Scouting Report from Walt football on mercilus I only put it on here because of the player comparison of JPP I agree with Walt about Whitney being pretty athletic. Even if u don't think hes that athletic u gotta love Whitney as a prospect



                          [*]Whitney Mercilus, 6-4/265
                          [*]Defensive End

                          [*]Illinois














                          Whitney Mercilus Scouting Report

                          By Charlie Campbell








                          Strengths:
                          [*] Raw speed to turn the edge
                          [*] Agility to sink his hips/shoulder
                          [*] Strength
                          [*] Repertoire of moves
                          [*] Active hands
                          [*] Has the strength to anchor and hold his ground vs. the run
                          [*] Always looking to force fumbles
                          [*] Quick get off
                          [*] Shedding blocks when pass rushing
                          [*] Ability to bull rush heavy tackles and guards
                          [*] Extremely athletic








































































                          Weaknesses:

                          [*] One-year wonder
                          [*] Lacks complete body of work in college
                          [*] Quality of tackles he faced







                          Summary: Whitney Mercilus was the most productive pass-rusher in
                          college football in 2011. He led the nation in sacks (16) and forced
                          fumbles (9). It was a record-setting season as Mercilus topped Simeon
                          Rice's school record for sacks in a year. Like Rice, Mercilus is a
                          fabulous athlete. He has a special combination of size, speed and
                          strength to go along with excellent technique. Mercilus also recorded 57
                          tackles and 22.5 tackles for a loss.



                          Entering the NFL, Mercilus is an advanced pass-rusher. He got the better
                          of the best tackles he faced this season. Against Ohio State's Mike
                          Adams, Mercilus recorded 1.5 sacks with a forced fumble. The Wisconsin
                          Badgers' powerful offensive line couldn't contain Mercilus. He bull
                          rushed through massive right tackle Josh Oglesby to get a sack-fumble on
                          Russell Wilson. Mercilus also knocked out left tackle Ricky Wagner for
                          part of the game.



                          Mercilus has a very impressive repertoire of pass rushing moves. He
                          attacks with speed around the edge. As a counter to the speed, he has
                          the strength to execute rip moves and shed offensive linemen. Mercilus
                          has the raw power to get under offensive linemen's pads and bull rush
                          into the pocket. That catches linemen by surprise as they are so
                          cognizant of being ready for his speed rush. Beyond his great physical
                          skill set, Mercilus is an advanced pass-rusher technically.



                          Mercilus holds up well in run defense. Linemen don't push him around, as
                          he is strong at the point of attack. He also will burst into the
                          backfield to disrupt running plays.



                          The big question regarding Mercilus is why didn't break into the lineup
                          sooner and why didn't he produce more earlier. In 2009 and 2010,
                          Mercilus combined to record 24 tackles with two sacks and 6.5 tackles
                          for a loss.





























                          Player Comparison: Jason Pierre-Paul. There are a lot of
                          similarities between Mercilus and JPP. Both are fantastic athletes who
                          come to the NFL with a special combination of speed and strength. They
                          also were one-year wonders at the college level. Mercilus had more
                          production than JPP in their final college season, and the latter has
                          turned into one of the best pass-rushers in the NFL.





                          Right now, it looks like Mercilus should get drafted in the same range
                          as JPP. However, it is possible that Mercilus will be this year's Aldon
                          Smith and surprise some by cracking the top 10. It is not out of the
                          question for him to pass North Carolina's Quinton Coples in the lead up
                          to the 2012 NFL Draft. JPP did that with Derrick Morgan in 2010. Projecting Mercilus to the pros, I see a player similar to Pierre-Paul.





                          NFL Matches: Jacksonville, Chicago, San Diego, New York Jets, Buffalo, Cleveland, Detroit




                          What team couldn't use another pass-rusher? Mercilus has the athletic
                          ability to be a stand-up edge-rusher in 3-4 defenses, and that opens him
                          up to consideration from a lot of teams. He looks like a natural right
                          defensive end in a 4-3 defense who will challenge left tackles.




                          The Jaguars will have the first crack at Mercilus, and they need an edge
                          rusher. Buffalo, San Diego and the Jets are all 3-4 defenses that need
                          to find a player who can put heat on the quarterback. If Mercilus gets
                          past all of those teams, he could end up in Chicago. They need some
                          young talent for their defense. It would be a significant fall for
                          Mercilus to get to the Browns' second first-round selection, but they
                          could use an end to complete their young front four. The Lions almost
                          took a defensive end last year, and if they don't re-sign Cliff Avril,
                          they might consider trading up to land Mercilus.

                              After today's game if there was any focus on drafting a DT it should be completely shifted to LB, CB, or Oline. Canty and Joseph were plugging the middle all day!

                              Hopefully Kuechly will be there or DeCastro.

                                I'm happy enough with the way the team is playing right now, I think that just getting healthy and resigning free agents will be like a whole extra draft.

                                BPA all the way. Just add talent, only JR knows where it will be needed next.
