I like the 1st 3 tho I am not sold yet on Fauria as a capable blocker, he plays so tall and needs to add some bulk. He is a good red zone TE tho.
The 1 guy you list who I do not like, not so much because he isnt a good player but beause he isnt a good fit, is Nigel Malone. He is gonna be a slot guy in the NFL, and we have 1 of those already in Hosely.
I think we need a big physical outside CB type like Rhodes, Milliner, Banks, Amerson , Poyner or even a Logan Ryan. CWeb has been 1 of the worst performing Cbs in the NFL this year. We cannot wait to replace him, especially at his pricetag. Expensive and Bad is not a good combination.
As far as FAURIA, i think hes a OK blocker now, and certainly can get alittle bit better in that area, which would make em a solid blocker.. He dosen't suck at blocking or anything.. Just needs to get alittle better... Offensively, hes dynamite, and i've seen him make a few plays u would think a white guy(sorry to my fellow white dudes..lol) his size would not be able to make, athletically anyways.. I think theres a huge dropoff after Fauria at the TE positon this yr.
Speaking of Joseph Fauria.. Hes on Walt Footballs Draft Stock UP/DOWN list this wk, as being UP.. A bunch of players i really like are on there, that include CJ Mosley, Kawaan Short, and of course, Joseph Fauria...
Joseph Fauria, TE, UCLA
The Bruins senior tight end has been a deadly red-zone weapon this season and proved that again versus the Cougars. Fauria caught his ninth touchdown of the year with a beautiful red-zone route. He lined up in the slot and went straight off the snap for a few yards before jab stepping to the outside and slanting to the deep middle of the end zone. It was an easy nine-yard touchdown catch for Fauria.
The senior later drew a pass interference in the end zone on a fade route. The 6-foot-7 tight end had a mismatch with a short cornerback, and all the defender could do was pull Fauria to the ground to avoid giving up a touchdown.
Fauria made a great catch to set up another score. He went over a defensive back for a jump ball to make a tough reception. The defensive back tipped the pass, but Fauria controlled the ball as he landed on his back. The gain went for 30 yards to the Washington State 10-yard line and set up a UCLA touchdown on the next play. Fauria totaled 70 yards and a touchdown on four receptions. He had three plays that directly led to 21 points for the Bruins.
Fauria has 31 receptions for 417 yards and nine scores in 2012. He has improved as a blocker to become a more well-rounded tight end. Fauria looks like a nice value pick after the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. This performance against the Cougars will help his efforts to be a second-day selection.
I think 3rd round is a fair rating for him though.
