Edit: I'm aware Smith went back to school. Not editing it out though.

I'm ready for the Senior Bowl and beyond already. I'll be spending most of my Sundays watching videos on players who catch my eye.

Easy targets are guys like DeVonta Smith from Alabama. Great speed. Catches everything. And is a big play waiting to happen. Would do well opposite Michael Thomas.


Another guy on defense I'm learning more about is Hamsah Nasirildeen. 6'4", 216lbs. Sideline to sideline speed with hips almost like a corner. Imagine Obi Melifonwu but with actual instincts and a much harder hitter. It's like this guy was hand crafted for me to fall in love with as a player. Only flaw is he's coming off an injury, but that might be exactly what allows him to slide to the 2nd or 3rd day. I can see him lining up all over the place to cause trouble for offenses. He's not even a head hunter. He gets low and explodes through the ball carrier. Forced a few fumbles at Florida State.



Who is everyone else keeping a close eye on as we transition to the offseason?

anothergood option at LB is Jordyn Brooks. Reminds me of Bobby Wagner. I also love Gaither from App State. Similar skillset to Leonard or D Jones (Falcons). Undersized but lightning fast sideline to sideline eraser

Apparently Davis-Gaither was at the Senior Bowl.

I remember Charles Davis mentioning him as having attended his alma mater but the only linebacker that jumped out to me in the game was Evan Weaver.

Weaver looked very capable of a starting role.

The other knock on Davis-Gaither is that his size is better suited for Strong Saftety at only 216lbs.

Some impressive linebackers that I observed from the all star games:

Potential starters

Shawn Bradley (very impressive)
Evan Weaver
Christian Rozeboom
Shaq Quarterman
Michael Pinkney
Dante Olsen

Shawn Bradley dominated the Collegiate Bowl




Development PS guys:

Daniel Bituli
Michael Spears jr
John Houston mlb USC
Yes, I like Pinkney and Quarterman. Weaver was real good for Cal. Rozeboom is one of the best small schoolers. Have not watched Bradley that much. Other small school players watching. Sam Romanski, Da'Jon Lee , Cam Gill, Aaron Patrick, Jonas Griffith, and LB/SS Hybrid Ray Wilborn and Javin White...

A poster above mentioned that the draft is weak at Linebacker.

Im seeing it as average.

I see a number of guys with speed who can come in and contribute already and im only 3/4 of the way done scouting players.

Josh Uche OLB/DE
Kenneth Murray MLB/OLB
Shaun Bradley MLB/OLb
Evan Weaver MLB/OLB
Michael Pinkney OLB
Christian Rozeboom MLB/OLB

All have tremendous play speed.

Pinkney had an outstanding closing speed play at the Shrine game that stood out to me.



Quarterman isn't the Fastest guy but he was a 4-yr starter at Miami. The first since Dan Morgan in 2001. He and Dante Olsen have those broad-shouldered old-school frames that are well suited for 2-down run stoppers.

The traditional 2 down, downhill thumper Linebackers that come in at 250+ lbs. are becoming extinct.

The league is shifting towards athletic Linebackers that might fit more of the SS physical build, but being able to chase plays down to the sideline and being capable of dropping into coverage are a must with the way the game is evolving.

Isaiah Simmons is going to be the future of what teams look for from the Linebacking position. Passing is King in the modern day NFL and you need the speed and athletism to cover the edges against the Shanahan/Kubiak style schemes that stress the edges with all the boot actions.

Dre Greenlaw is the perfect example he's 5-11 and only 225 coming out of Arkansas and only went in the 5th round but turned out to be one of the most valuable Linebackers taken in last year's draft from a team value perspective. Deion Jones was undersized too but has translated into one of the best pure Coverage Mike backers in the NFL.

Im a big fan of Jordan Love and have watched a ton him over the last two seasons. He, and the entire Utah St. team as a whole, def fell off the cliff this year and a lot of Love's negatives showed up in almost every single game. Like every dude coming out, he's a work in progress, but Love clearly has the skills to evolve into a franchise QB.

That being said, I'm on here to hype Love's teammate OLB/EDGE/DE/DEFENSIVE WEAPON Tipa Galeai. This dude is pure chaos. It's clear that we love hybrid players (Taysom, Chauncey, Elliss) and Tipa is that exact type of talent. He lines up everywhere, DE, OLB, ILB SLOT, and his purpose is cause mayhem and log splash plays. I think Tipa is one of the most explosive seek and destroy players in this draft. He's 6'5 240 and when we sees the ball, that dude turns into a human heat seeking missile. Tipa has been used primarily as a pressure player, but I think he's a Rush LB/DEFENSIVE WEAPON in the pros. This dude is one of my 2020 draft darlings. I would absolutely love to see Tipa Galeai in Black and Gold come draft weekend.

Javin White played FS at the Collegiate Bowl and stood out on a handful of plays. I definitely wrote his name down.

Im certainly going to look into the other ones. Thanks!


This being off of my game sucks.

Im buying a house and the construction process is taking forever.

I normally have all these guys scouted by December. Im playing catch up right now and am still trying to get break down the Hula Bowl. It's the only all-Star game that I havs yet too watch.

What do we have to do to actually select a probowl caliber LB for once. Did we curse ourselves by having the Dome patrol?

We will see what happens in Free Agency. If we lose Klein and Alonso. We will probability sign a free agent. We still have Chase Hansen, Alex Anzalone, Kaden Elliss, Colton Jumper, Josh Martin, Andrew Dowell. Think if we draft one it will be between 3-6 round.

Everything is too scheme-dependent to make sweeping statements like that.

The 260lb Donta Hightowers of the world can still find a role as a downhill strongside guy inside of a 3-4 Just like Vaughn Johnson could back in the day.

Josh Uche
Steven Tuzska
Alex Highsmith
Bradlee Anae
Alton Robinson
Deonte Holden (Dominated Collegiate bowl)

Delonte Scott (35" Arms) 10 sacks

Chauncey Rivers DE (sack in Collegiate bowl)

DT
Damien Hamilton

Give me Uche first.

He has a low floor and high ceiling and is versatile and powerful.

Even if he flops as a pass rusher, which is unlikely he can still make for a very good linebacker.

After that flip a coin between Weaver and Bradley because I love them both.

Murray will like cost a 2nd rounder and will be too rich for our blood.

Pinkney looks like a starting olb from day 1.
