He definitely showcased a much better punch controlling tackles than anything that I've ever seen from Jordan. For a team that gives up over 5.2 yards a carry on the ground I can't see how Jordan can even be in serious consideration for a 3-4 team at his height and weight.



But hey, people here love finesse players.
Don't know that was 2 years ago, wasn't paying attention to him. How come he couldn't do that since? I've seen more people talking about him being a strongside end than I ever have 3-4 OLB. NFP has an article how he's overrated, walterfootball thinks he might be asked to pack on more weight to be a 3-4 DE. I know you got your guys but other than maybe a run down only 3-4 OLB I'm just not seeing it with Taylor.

What you mean you can't see how Jordan can't be in consideration for a 3-4 team? 6'6'' 250 is pretty prototypical for a 3-4 OLB. He's an every down player with great potential. He's explosive to rush the passer, he has the height and athleticism to match up against the top TE's, and he's added weight to be more effective in run defense. When you're changing your defensive front he's exactly the kind of player you look for.

For once, I think we can count the days of Strief as a starter, and also, we are on our best when we use 3 tackles in our elephant line, using the tackle as an extra tight end.

I do think, at this point that Johnson and Fluker are a safer bet then Mingo, Jones, Jordan, or the available corners.
i didnt like fluker at the combine but johnson looked real good

you are right in that its much safer to take a tackle in the first round than it is to take another positional player

tackles are easy to judge. you can either block or you cant. its hard to miss on a tackle that is clearly a first round guy. once you get later into the draft its a little more difficult to judge and tackle isnt a position you can really toy around with

if we absolutely have to hit with this pick.....then we either gotta hope someone falls a lot, or we take a tackle

  • and today’s performance
He said that he jumped on the scene after his East-West performance but some questioned his tape due to the level of competition. BUT after the Sr. Bowl and his performance today no one will question if he can compete with the “higher level” athletes.
NFLDraftScout.com also had him rated as the #10 OT prospect and a #3 draft pick prior to todays Combine. Needless to say, the folks over there were in "We told you so" mode after his performance today.

6'5", 306, a 4.65 forty AND 31 reps on the bench......

Dayum!

If Johnson is there at 15 then he surely should be considered. He is also good trade bait if he slips to us.
Fisher was in the first group; he had a good day.

Another thing, having a starting tackle with the salary of the 15th pick makes a lot of financial sense now, considering how rookie contracts are structure. In a we words, it's cheap. Lane Johnson will be a very exciting pick.

Fluker is a nasty right tackle, he can start there from day 1 and be a solid starter for years to come. I wish that Charles Brown finally show some toughness and claim the starting left tackle position, he has the athletic ability to do so. We would be set on the line for years to come.

NFL Scouting Combine: What we learned from Day 3

NFL Scouting Combine: What we learned from Day 3 - NFL.com

» Te'o handled the media barrage with grace. It was all a little awkward and odd. Te'o admitted the experience has been "overwhelming," but he's done a good job putting it in perspective and moving on.

» Lowest moment for the media: The New York Post asked if Te'o was dating anyone "real."

» On the field, prospects mostly held serve. Notre Dame's Tyler Eifert looks like the top tight end in this class, arguably by a wide margin. A strong day of drills included a 4.68 second 40-yard dash, and a 35˝-inch vertical leap. NFL Network's Mike Mayock said Eifert helped solidify his spot as the top tight end, although his No. 2 tight end, Zach Ertz, also had a nice day.

» Mayock's No. 3 tight end, San Diego State's Gavin Escobar, ran a surprisingly slow 4.84 in the 40-yard dash. "That's not who he is on film," Mayock said. He said the slow time will cause teams to look at Escobar.

» Fairly big draft stock news: Oregon defensive end/linebacker Dion Jordan announced Saturday that he will have surgery to repair a torn labrum after the combine. That will keep him off the field for three to four months. Jordon is a Mayock favorite who could wind up getting taken in the top 10. This won't help that effort.

» The Kansas City Chiefs are viewed as an early favorite for Alex Smith. (Means at least one of the QB's wont be taken before us...)

» Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson made it clear he will do anything to get into the NFL: Play wide receiver, quarterback or even cornerback. (Or possibly wash cars.)

» My favorite bit of news I learned today: LSU defensive lineman Barkevious Mingo and Sam Montgomery have a bet on who gets drafted first. The bet: $5,000 and a car wash. Of course, $5,020 would be simpler, but the loser actually has to do said car washing.

Mingo mentioned this when he was on the NFLAM set a couple weeks ago.

Tyrann Mathieu - College Player - 2013 Player Profile - Rotoworld.com

Mathieu 5'9" 186lbs. Not too bad, probably right where people thought he'd be. Like the article says, not ideal to play outside, but perfect for a slot/nickel corner.

Austin and Goodwin both ran 4.25. Austin's second 40 was 4.31 while Goodwin's was 4.29. There's some fast guys in this draft.
