I feel really bad for whichever teams need to pick a QB in this draft. If I was a GM I would not want to risk my career on any of these guys. To be honest I think I would rather take David Fales in the 2nd or 3rd than any of these guys in the 1st.
Man, Vegas flat out cleaned up yesterday(as usual).. How many times are teams gonna take double digit leads in college football and blow them to teams that seemingly can't move the ball at all? I mean Oregon sts defense looked great, and then su-cked 2nd half, and TCU's defnese was insane and somehow they lost to Michgan St? WTH? Thats crazy..
Hence, why a guy whos missed parts of the past 2yrs is almost a sure fire lock for 1st rd, and at LB, where hes only played for a couple seasons.. Kinda gives u a idea of what hes been accomplishing there..
Its a stupid way to draft, and exactly how u lose ur job.. U gotta take good players, and eventually as u pile up the good players, u run into a situation that allows u to get a legit prospect at QB or DE or whatever...
Interesting qoutes from NFL scouts on a few guys we've discussed:
-"Eifert is probably the top kid but he's not an all-around guy," one scout said. "I don't know how much he really likes football. I think he does it because it's something he's good at. He'd be more happy being a wide receiver."
"His (expletive) is bigger than a coffee table," one scout said, referring to Fluker. "Huge legs, long arm. He can really drive people off the ball using his massive size. He is getting better in pass pro. And he's got some nastiness to him."
DALLAS THOMAS/ODAY ABOUSHI
-"Thomas has the athletic ability to be a left tackle and is a footwork kind of guy. He might have to be a guard. Aboushi has a bad body on him but he's real effective. Pretty good technician. Kind of a nasty kid."
-"Great athlete," one scout said. "Can make all the blocks. You watch him move, especially for a zone team, he'll be right up their alley. Problem is the guy played at 280."
-"As a freshman and sophomore, you saw a lot of signs of dominance," one scout said. "I don't see how he gets out of the first round because he's just so big."
- "is an undersized move guy. Just kind of a finesse athlete. Big-time character questions."
-"You can knock him on this and that but he's just a good player," one scout said. "No major deficiencies. He's like (Luke) Kuechly from last year. Maybe not what you want to do (with a top-10 pick) but you're getting a good football player."
- "Ogletree is like (Kansas City's) Derrick Johnson," one scout said. "It's just his (four-game drug) suspension and everything. You've got to worry about that. He will slip and slide around in there and make a bunch of plays. He's so athletic and so big and can really run."
Another scout compared Ogletree to Odell Thurman, another former Georgia MLB whose promising career in Cincinnati was cut short by drug abuse in the mid-2000s.
The scout said Ogletree was the best player on the Bulldogs' defense despite the presence of OLB Jarvis Jones
-"He did not have the production you'd like to see from a really outstanding athlete," one scout said. "But he's also playing on a pretty good team, and they rotated a lot. He will blow the combine out."
-"Banks is a really good football player," one scout said. "Not a thick guy by any means, but real long arms. Even for a long, lanky guy he has pretty good quickness. His top-end speed isn't great. Loves football and isn't afraid to hit."
-"He's a nickel back and returner," one scout said. "It's just like Janoris Jenkins, but Janoris is much, much more talented. This guy just got arrested again. I don't know how you select him."
"This is maybe the best safety draft in a long, long time," one scout said. "This is a draft where everybody can get healthy at the position. You may not have the Sean Taylor elite-type player, but you have a lot of really good players."
-"Matt is kind of short but he's a hitter and he can cover," one scout said. "If he goes in the first it will be late."
- "He's different than most University of Texas guys - he's tough and physical," one scout said. "Maybe the lack of 40 time keeps him out of the first."
-Georgia's Bacarri Rambo (6-0½, 206) has major character flaws. "But he's the new breed of safety that you need," one scout said. "Real athletic. Ball skills. Covers. Real up and down with his tackling and his physicalness."
