    Andreas Knappe

    HUGE 6 8 LT Prospect
    377 on CBS big board
    has good feet but not great. He appears to play high but that is probably because he is such a big man. But he does really well in pass protection, looking like a giant among children... wont blow guys off the line in run blocking but can get the job done... surprisingly for such a big man gets out in space to make second level blocks. not as nasty as bolles or some others but his giant frame makes him a wall in pass protection that defenders have little chance of speed or bull rushing.... My amatuer take on him is that he is a good prospect and if he can increase his lower body strength and flexibility to bend, with exercise and technique improvement, especially in run blocking, he can make a good NFL player. Another of the many intriguing late round or UDFA prospects

    Update, apparently he is climbing up some draft boards...could go early or mid rounds. Keep an eye out for this guy.

      1. Jabrill Peppers. Just don't see a position for him on our team. Maybe fits another team though. But for us he is not even on the radar i don't think. Without a true position in th NFL except may be SS i don't see how he can be ranked so high on draft boards.

      2. Jonnu Smith TE I've seen his name among the tight ends considered in the draft. he is not a good football player IMO. I don't think he is a good prospect at all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nA2bCEmQ5TE He looks lost out there. He does not find anyone to block, missing his assignments. Just plain not good. Perhaps alack of experience. I don't know. But i think he is off my board completely even as an UDFA in my mind.
      Jonnu smith went in the third round..... He is listed as the third stringer as of right now for the titans behind delanie walker and phillip supernew

          very good call on mack hollins... he looked fantastic in first preseason game... he actually ended up going earlier, in round 4 to the eagles ...but still a great call....

          • rico gathers 6th rounder dallas cowboys TE scored another TD thats 2 in 2 preseason games.... dude had not played football since he was 13 or something...was a basketball player they took as a project in the 6th round.... looks like a great steal for them so far.....

            • watching the lions colts preseason...TE michael roberts had a catch......... LT greg robinson looks great so far for the Lions (acquired this season after being thought of as a bust).... jarad davis...the LB already had nice coverage/break up looks really good out there so far also..........

                7.1 Yards per carry. He will be the steal of the draft if you ask me.

                  glasgow projected to be a back up after being picked in round 4 by the bengals:

                    Tedric Thompson, Colorado, FS
                    Jeremiah Ledbetter, Arkansas, DT

                    Jordan Evans, Oklahoma, MLB
                    Jayon Brown, UCLA, LB

                    Are a few late round/undrafted sleepers I'm digging
                    ejuan price went in the 7th round to the rams and looks like he has a back up role and will make the roster...some writers predicting he will make the starting lineup.... good call dude.

                    tedric thompson off to a shaky start as he learns but expected to start went at 111

                    http://insidethepylon.com/nfl/teams-...ver-3-defense/

                    S Tedric Thompson The last of the team’s seven picks in the top 111, Thompson figures to start out at free safety where he would back up Earl Thomas (veteran free agent Bradley McDougald can back up at both safety spots). But it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Seahawks put Thompson at corner to judge his ability to play there. He could emerge as a player who is similar to DeShawn Shead in his early years, able to back up at several spots

                      One heck of a good football player. Could be severely underrated by the media and flying under the radar. Surprisingly good in coverage from what i saw. Surprising speed for such a big bruiser. NFL ready for sure.

                        7.7 yds per carry. Led all of the college backs. Love the way he refuses to be tackled. He is a fighter, with good speed. Not as pretty as dalvin or mccaffrey, but the dude is a football player man.

He's getting comparisons of "the next Richard Sherman". Comparing their combine stats King is faster than Sherman and has a better vertical too. They both are ball hawks. Some have him being mocked to the Seahawks in the 1st round.... like they need a better secondary! lol.
