    Kase-1 Pre-Combine Mock 1.0

    1st Round-Dre Kirkpatrick, 'Bama, CB
    On the
    field, he's a prized cover man with the angular frame and reach to
    quickly become a No. 1-type cornerback in the NFL. The second-team
    All-American, also second-team All-SEC, was surrounded by top-50
    prospects on Alabama's defense and teams will want to gauge his ability
    to survive on an island before investing in his future.




    <table class="data" width="100%"><tbody><tr class="title"><td>Analysis</td></tr>
    <tr class="row1"><td>



    Man Coverage: Possesses prototypical size and strength combination to
    lock down NFL receivers on the outside. Long arms and attitude give him
    a chance to be very good in press role. Plays with natural bend and
    fair foot quickness in his backpedal. Hips are fluid for his size, opens
    them up quickly out of pedal to keep inside position while running down
    the sideline. Recovery speed from double-moves and pick plays is more
    than adequate, does not give much ground trailing on crossing routes.
    Can be overaggressive landing his punch in press, giving up inside
    position, losing his balance, or even falling down.


    </p>

    Zone Coverage: Mainly used in man, but flashes playmaking ability
    in zones, as well. Uses his size and length to close and wrap
    effectively after the catch. Reads quarterback when playing off, baits
    him to make the underneath throw then closes to make the interception or
    a big hit to dislodge ball from receiver. Uses length to knock away
    touch passes behind him and in front of the safety.


    </p>

    Ball Skills: Strong enough to win jump balls down the sideline or
    50-50 balls over the middle. Good hand-eye coordination to knock away
    passes in front of receivers with off hand. Does not find the ball
    quickly when receiver turns to look, overruns plays too regularly.
    Gambles on interceptions instead of securing the tackle.


    </p>

    Run Support: Very physical outside, pushes aside smaller wideouts
    easily and does not back down from confrontations with larger players.
    Willing to add himself to piles. Good hustle and chase downfield to help
    teammates. Typically keeps outside leverage but will get aggressive,
    leaving the sideline vulnerable. Needs to consistently break down and
    keep his feet outside or NFL backs will evade him.


    </p>

    Tackling: Flashes pure strength to stop receivers and running
    backs in their tracks on the outside, should get stronger over time.
    Likes to throw his shoulder into receivers to force them out of bounds.
    Resorts to duck-and-swipe when unnecessary, which may work against
    college ballcarriers but will cause problems at the next level. Used on
    corner blitzes due to size/speed combination, forces a lot of quick
    throws. Willing to go for the strip, especially if ballcarrier already
    engaged. Negates special teams gunners on punts, stays with them with
    effort, physicality and speed.


    </p>

    Intangibles: Well-liked teammate who got the nickname "Swag" for
    his quiet but confident demeanor; referred to Texas as not having
    "swagger" during his college announcement press conference. Likes to
    talk on the field to teammates and get the crowd involved when at home.
    Praised for his strong will and work ethic. Won the team's Bart Starr
    Most Improved Player Award in the spring of 2011.

    </p></td></tr></tbody></table>-Alternate 1st Rounder: Mike Adams, Ohio St, OT


    2nd Round- Vontaze Burfict, Az St, LB


    Burfict
    is explosive. He can rock ballcarriers in the hole, is particularly
    adept rushing the quarterback and plays with a ferocity that could
    quickly make him a fan favorite. There are plenty of aspects about his
    game that translate well to the next level. However, he has been prone
    to immature behavior that has cost his team penalties at critical stages
    of games throughout his career.


    </p>

    He's not as instinctive as his reputation might lead you to
    believe, has a soft build and hasn't shown any real improvement since
    first stepping onto the ASU campus.
    </p>



    <table class="data" width="100%"><tbody><tr class="title"><td>Analysis</td></tr>
    <tr class="row1"><td>



    Read &amp; React: Brings good instincts to the middle of a defense,
    but his reaction time is what stands out for a player his size.
    Combining that reaction time with his speed results in crushing hits. A
    step late recognizing screens at times and can be fooled by misdirection
    in the offensive line because he relies on his keys.


    </p>

    Run defense: Between-the-tackles thumper with mike linebacker
    upper and lower-body builds, but also agile and quick enough to get
    through gaps to make plays in the backfield. Avoids lineman blocks in
    space with quickness, strong hands, and even a dip move, though he lines
    up seven yards off the line to see them coming. Also strong enough to
    anchor against lineman blocks; could be more consistent shedding to
    reach ballcarrier as he runs by.


    </p>

    Pass defense: Agile enough to attack throws in front of him when
    in zone, can make the big hit which separates the ball from his man.
    Taken out in nickel packages, though, as he lacks the suddenness to get a
    deep drop or handle jerk routes of quicker slot receivers. Must read
    the quarterback's eyes to jump and affect passing lanes if not getting
    home on the blitz.


    </p>

    Tackling: Explosive tackler who gets low to stop backs in their
    tracks. Plays like a downhill missile on most snaps, making huge hits
    that result in turnovers. Also brings down backs by their leg if
    slipping down during the tackle. Anchors quickly after inserting himself
    into a pile to prevent forward pushes. Capable of reaching either
    sideline on a given play, taking deep angles when needed to prevent the
    touchdown. Gets low to shoulder down college backs, but NFL ballcarriers
    may avoid those tackles. Misses some tackles when trying to intimidate
    with a lowered helmet or shoulder instead of wrapping up.


    </p>

    Pass Rush/Blitz: Used as a blitzer off the edge and up the
    middle, showing a lot of potential by pressuring quarterbacks into
    throws but rarely getting home (zero sacks in 2010). Explodes from his
    stance but lacks a variety of moves and does not use his hands to beat
    initial block. Athletic enough to jump over running back cut pass pro
    blocks, but should be able to bully them instead.


    </p>

    Intangibles: His utter lack of discipline is a major concern for
    scouts; draws too many personal foul flags for late hits and constantly
    talks with officials and opponents. Has reportedly matured during over
    the past year, becoming a vocal leader on the field and in the locker
    room. Removed from starting line-up for one game in 2010 for
    head-butting Oregon State QB Ryan Katz. Stamina could be improved.


    </p></td></tr></tbody></table>-Alternate 2nd Rounder: Whitney Mercilus, Illinois, DE


    3rd Round- Mitchell Schwartz, Cal, OT


    Schwartz didn't play football until high school and is still growing,
    but has football in his bloodlines -- older brother Geoff started all
    16 games in 2010 for the Carolina Panthers. His technique is
    inconsistent, but he does a nice job jolting defenders at the point of
    attack and while it doesn't always look pretty, he usually gets the job
    done. Schwartz isn't a quick-twitch mover with only short-area lateral
    range, but he is a high-effort blocker with intriguing tools and
    intangibles -- looks like a right tackle-only prospect with limited pro
    potential, but has the toughness, maturity and intelligence to be a
    backup while fighting for a starting spot.


    </p>

    ANAYLYSIS</p>

    Strengths: Has a good frame with adequate length (33-inch arms)
    and has done a nice job adding bulk. Plays with a wide base and is a
    smart, instinctive player with good overall awareness. Has smooth
    athletic skills with the foot quickness and agility to mirror and seal
    the edge. Uses good body positioning and understands angles, doing a
    nice job going station-to-station and making combination blocks.
    Aggressive extending his limbs with some power, punching at the point of
    attack. Looks comfortable in space, staying patient in his stance with
    natural coordination. A high-effort player with very good intangibles,
    rarely making mental errors. He is a versatile veteran as a four-year
    starter with experience at both left and right tackle (51 career starts
    -- 35 at left tackle, 16 at right tackle).


    </p>

    Weaknesses: Not the most physically imposing player and lacks
    overwhelming power to win with raw strength. Has some technique issues,
    lunging and overextending himself -- allows his upper body to get over
    his feet too often. Needs to stay balanced through contact in the run
    game with a bad habit of lowering his head, whiffing and ending up on
    the ground. Lacks elite range and lateral ability. Tends to play a bit
    high and doesn't have a stout base to anchor without proper leverage.
    Flashes an inconsistent finishing attitude and is too passive at times.
    Has some durability concerns after a back injury kept him out of spring
    practice prior to the 2011 season.

    Re: Kase-1 Pre-Combine Mock 1.0

    not bad kase, but I would be shocked if Kirkpatrick dropped all the way to 32. I could see the Cowboys grabbing him. But you never know, I did not think Prince would fall to us last season.



    I think Burfict goes in the 2nd rd, but may be gone by 64. Whomever winds up being his LB coach and D coordinator. are going to teach him discipline in regards to reducing the personal foul penalties.



    I have heard other posters say good things about Schwartz from Cal---haven't seen too much of his play.
    Perry Fewell is out there playing Tecmo Bowl defense with just 4 plays you can pick from on the remote control.

    Re: Kase-1 Pre-Combine Mock 1.0

    Your first pick (and alternate) probably won't be available when we pick.

    If they should be, then that would open up some big (and agonizing) decisions). I'd like either (Kirkpatrick or Adams) if they were available.

    I'm not a fan of Burflict and he's not a need.

    Mitchell Schwartz probably won't be available by the end of the 3rd. Superfluous if you're going Adams in the first but a good pick if available and we haven't addressed the OT position before now.
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

    Wouldn't exactly be mad at that draft, but:

    highly, highly doubt we go CB with the first pick. If kirkpatrick is there, I can't see New England passing him up.

    I don't think kirkpatrick would be there, Mike Adams won't be there, Vontaze won't be there, Alshon Jeffery definitely won't be there in the third.
