    Re: A look at the 2011 NFL draft

    [quote user="nycsportzfan"][quote user="thegreatone"][quote user="nycsportzfan"][quote user="thegreatone"][quote user="nycsportzfan"][quote user="thegreatone"][quote user="Redeyejedi"][quote user="nycsportzfan"][quote user="Redeyejedi"][quote user="nycsportzfan"][quote user="slipknottin"][quote user="nycsportzfan"] I've been saying this for awhile now... Seems like the perfect 4/3 SLB, and especially for us, because it would give us a LB that is very active and not one dimensional....[/quote] my question with foster is where does he go in the draft, is he a 2nd round pick? is he a late 3rd rounder?[/quote] i think hes a 2nd rder, because as it turns out, the LB crop isn't what we thought it was gonna be coming into this season... So, i think people will jump on the top guys at the positon alittle earlier, putting Foster in RD 2...
    [/quote] I think as long as he doesnt completly bomb out at the combine he will be taken in the 2nd round[/quote] agreed...

    What do u think of Bilal Powell after the Sr Bowl? U know, i think he was one of the best backs that didn't get the publicity, and i had him as a sleeper back, that was gonna move up as the draft became alittle closer, and i think he started that, by looking solid all wk long in practice and then, looking strong and fast in the game... I think hes in the 3rd-4th range now, and hes still got the combine...
    [/quote]Have to say I liked what I saw. He hit the hole hard and flashed some speed[/quote]any rb can hit the hole hard it what you do when you get to that 2nd level that determines what kind of back you are and he showed some very poor vision on some of those runs. wasnt impressed with him.
    [/quote] u weren't impressed with him? He had a great week, and 50yrds on only 10carries is pretty solid, against some of the best players in the country... Not to mention, hes not only strong, but a gamebreaker, who can smash a dude for a 2yrd gain and push em back for a 1st down, or breat it for 80yrds which he did twice this yr and 70plus yrds 3times this yr.. Hes not a huge weapon in the pass game, but certainly adequete, and also gets chunks of yrds in his pass catching opps... The consensus is that he looked great all wk long, and really helped his stock, which isnt anything, compared to the remarkable season he put together... This guys easily one of the best RB's in this draft, that no ones been talking about, and will go before the 4th rd is over, if not before the 4th rd.... Not every rb hits the whole hard, thats the problem with a ton of RB's, hence the whole tip toe at the line chit chat on so many backs... Powell has a nice blend of power and finesse, and speed and i coudlen't dissagree more about his vision.. Then again, i watched a ton of louisville this yr, from betting games, and i seen him do things, i wonder if any back could do.. He had the best run i seen this season against Cincy, and i knew i could find it, check it out about halfway through... also, his vision is extrodianry, he knows exactly where the defenders are gonna be and anticipates when in the open field, and as shown against KU, can simply out run DB's when in the open field, or just explode through them.. Hes got alot going for him..

    [/quote]
    highlights showed he is FAST. does have some moves, still question his vision. only one run showed vision and it was the memphis one (albeit impressive). the rest he was hitting the holes (nice holes by the way) hard with little opposition. wish people posted more online in regards to videos. we should start a website called "armchair GM"(TM) and get people to upload vids.
    [/quote] how about the run against Cincy? Where he had 3guys on em, and he drove em back untill he spun off em, and was almost in 4th gear instantly and went 85yrds for a td? That was making his own hole, there...lol Those highlights were mainly to show u that play, the others were good, at showing his speed, and that run against memphis, displayed incredible vision, but overall, it was for that crazy run against cincy, that displays his strength and speed combonation.. He also changes direction well, can be a workhorse back, if the team needs that, hes a heck of a back.. I just don't see, where u get, hes got no vision.. Just from watching the Sr Bowl? But, i guess, if so many had to wait untill the SR BOWL to love em, u are entitled to not like em after only the sr bowl, but i just don't get how u don't, when it was clear, he did good all wk long, and that was on top of a amazing season... I guess, we'll definetly have to agree to disagree on him, becasue i again, think hes the best Back outside the top of the heap, hands down...
    [/quote]
    that was sick as well but has nothing to do with vision. there was one run in particular(SB game) and i cant really remember the specifics but he showed HORRIBLE vision. basically ran right into the guy which was kinda outta his way. like i said i havent been impressed (although that highlight real DID impress) buti havent seen that much of him either. i looked out for him every practice and noticed him once. even my sleeper locke didnt stand out as much as i thought so idk. truthfully i wasnt impressed with any RB SB week except for hunter in the pass drills. i will be watching plus if you love the guy i gotta give him some leeway :P if you can find some more highlight reels that would be awesome. i have looked but they are mostly one run. id like to see more runs like the memphis ones. slip posted a Montague of taiwan jones runs and he had several like that. starting to like that kid.
    [/quote] wow, locke showed incredible burst, and i believe helped his stock as well... U gotta understand, guys are gonna run into a guy and make a play now and again, that is bad, like running into a guy that is un called for or something , thats just the way it is... I've seen him a ton, and he really dosen't have a weakness per say, all though neverend brought up him sometiems not waiting for his blocks, and just trying to explode before the play gets going, and i have noticed that from time to time with him during the 4or so games i've seen this season with him... He pretty much had to deal with 8in the box often, as he was the louisville offense, and as he went good, opened things up for Cameron Graham and bellamy and chichester do some damage.... He was a one man wrecking crew in most games he played... My fave game i seen was against Cincy and his game against S.Florida, even though they lost the S.Fla game, because he litteraly was the louisville offense in that game, every TD and pass was set up off him being the workhorse carrying them downfield and the defense needing extra guys in the box to try and contain him...
    [/quote]oh i agree he just didnt perform as well as i was hoping or expected but not bad by a long shot. . ill be keeping my ear to the floor for powell, trust me. we all want that speedster.

    Weslye Saunders has been ruled ineligible for the draft. and has been removed from the combine. U would think I guy that had improper contact with an agent a year before everyone else would have people that would know to file paperwork properly.</P>


    </P>


    <FONT size=5>According to sources, Saunders and his representativesdidn't petition the NFL to be included in the draft eligible listto begiven special eligibility</FONT>. </P>

    Seriously its more on his people though. How the hell do they not get that done. The one thing is at least he will get to chose which team he wants to play for as an UDFA. Depending what they do on a rookie wage scale he might of lost some money.</P>

    If he can work out some of his character concerns, this could work out for the G-men... I remember an article from last year that they wind up with roughly twice as many undrafted rookies in their rookie mini-camps as any other team because they (the undrafted rookies) know that they'll get the best shot to make the team and play with The Giants. Also, they've taken shots on guys with character concerns before... just look at Bradshaw.

    hes not eligible as an undrafted free agent either, i dont believe. I think the next time he can enter the nfl is as a supplemental draft pick.
