    I like Tank Carder a lot.

    Surprised you have Orson Charles so low. I think he has a lot of value and incredibly underrated.

    Bert Reed? C'mon...I like Streeter and Byrd better than him.

    I really think we need to get two WRs in this draft. Id like Sanu/Randle and Hilton/Adams personally. Lots of guys to like though.

    Obviously there's other elements that combine to make up a prospect's grade on my board. For example, a kid like *Ronnell Lewis has 1st round physical talent and athletic ability. I felt like he always played out of position for Oklahoma (DE) and was better suited to be playing from a 2-point stance.... in space. He was a little undersized playing the DE position, but he has great feet and instincts. Knows how to get off blocks and understands leverage. Terrific burst off the ball, even though he's still raw as a pass rusher. Excellent special teams player and that goes a long ways towards helping him stick on a roster in the NFL while he learns his trade, and is able to receive the coaching and fundamental work that he needs at this point. One of the strongest players and best athletes in this draft.

    However, his academic issues and questionable intelligence are things that teams have to consider. Especially if you need him to come in and learn a complex system quickly in order to nail down that roster spot for you. He's a high risk/high reward type prospect, but the kid can play.

    For these reasons, a 1st round physical talent gets a late 3rd/early 4th round grade somewhere in the 95-105 range overall on my board.


    There's so many different variables that apply to all these kids. I don't necessarily even have a draftable grade on every prospect on my lists, mainly when you get towards the ends of these lists. Some of them are prospects that I like the film on, but don't test very well athletically.... I'm looking at them anywhere from the 7th round - Priority UDFA.

    In other words, if there's a particular grade on a specific prospect that you'd be interested in just ask...

    Haha Slimm, giving the credit to G.J. Kinne I see.

    We've talked about him quite a bit and you know I am high on him as a quarterback for the style of offense Miami is expected to run. Great video to give him a display.

    Thoughts on Ryan Lindley QB?


    Late round developmental only?

    Good question. I like him a little better than that, somewhere in the late-4th round range... but if a team were to get him later than that due to him being on the board that long I think they got themselves a pretty decent steal at the QB position.

    Right off the bat, Lindley has what you're looking for in his profile. Prototype size, 4 year starter in a pro-style offense, big strong arm, and experience in a knock-off West Coast system under Al Borges. He has one of the 3 best arms in this draft, if not the best.

    Has good pocket presence and tougness. Decent feel for the pass rush and more mobile in the pocket than people think. Needs very little to no work on his delivery from the waist up. I wouldn't touch it. Understands situational football, adept and efficient running the 2-minute offense. The 2-minute offense he ran at the end of his bowl game against UL-Lafayette to lead them to the go ahead touchdown in a whale of a football game was one of the best I witnessed all season in college football.

    The issues I see with Lindley are that he's a very, very streaky passer. His accuracy can go completely in the ditch because of sloppy footwork and tendency to overstride in his setup, and it happened often. He has to focus more on his fundamentals from the ground up to improve his accuracy. You have to have it in the NFL. However, when his footwork is sharp, he can be unstoppable because he can make any throw, anywhere, anytime to anybody due to having such a tremendous arm. Will also force some ill advised throws into double coverage, which most quarterbacks with physically gifted arms will do from time to time.

    Overall, I think Lindley is one of the lowest risk/high reward prospects in this draft, particularly at the quarterback position.

    What happened to make Michael Brewster fall down so far? Wasn't he being projected to go in the first round at one point?

    I don't know if he was ever projected as a 1st rounder but he was always one of the top 2 or 3 Senior centers in this draft. Konz was always the guy that was going to be the #1 center if he declared early.

    Brewster's a good player with exceptional toughness and competitiveness. He's one of the most experienced offensive lineman in this draft and is adept at making all the line calls. However, he just doesn't test well athletically.

    He's still a top 125 player in this draft and I'd be suprised if he lasted past the middle of the 4th round or so.

    No one is talking about Sanu, but I think he'd be a good fit for our offense and likely available in the 2nd - maybe the 3rd?

    His pro-day really helped his cause from what Ive read. His 40 went down significantly, could have been a fast track though Im not sure

    problem with sanu for me other than he can fight the ball his hands look inconsistent to me is that on tape i have yet to see evidence of him
    providing chunk yardage plays in the passing game...his game has more a possession type wr look to me given everythings 20 yards or less pretty much that i've seen...

    i wouldn't touch him with our 2nd rounder i know that...

    demario davis the lb from ark state really caught my eye at the combine with his work in drills and his length...very long lean muscled athlete...slimm since you have him your top rated 43 0lb i assume you have seen plenty of evidence of this kid showing off instincts and burst etc...can you point me in the direction of where i can see some of it??? i was a big fan of his after what i saw at the combine

    i think you have kendall reyes 2 spots too low on your dt rankings and i think you have cb dwight bentley a little low also...i don't see the cb norman from the small school that lit up the shrine game week on you rankings either...

    also why is lb bobby wagner from utah st not on your board???

    Josh Norman isn't on my board because there's no way in hell you can play cornerback in the NFL running almost 4.7 in the 40 yard dash. He has some character issues off the field, and some effort issues on it. There's too many other good CB's that I like, and Norman just didn't make the cut. There's some small school corners like Asa Jackson that I really like.

    Bobby Wagner isn't on my board for the same reason a lot of other players aren't... I don't think he's very good, and I like other linebackers better.

    I'm comfortable with where I have Kendall Reyes. He tested extremely well at the combine which helped his stock in my eyes, but he has a tendency to want to play around blocks rather than through them. Once he realizes he's lined up across from a guy who'll battle him tooth and nail, Reyes doesn't always match the challenge. I watched Lucas Nix completely dominate him and shut him out.

    Dwight Bentley is also a top 3 round pick on my board, but he's a very small corner. Has some issues in downfield coverage as well. Extremely competitive and plays with tremendous heart. I like Bentley, but I'll take the corners I have ahead of him first.

    Demario Davis might be the best 3 down linebacker in this draft behind Luck Kuechly, although I like Davis outside. He's a freak athletically in every aspect, physical, instinctive, wrap up tackler who knows when to really bring something extra without risking a whiffed tackle. Arkansas St. had a tremendous defense and Davis looked to me like the heart and soul of it that everyone else fed off of.

    damn...i didn't know norman ran 4.7...i guess now i know why he was squatting on everything at the shrine game...lacks long speed

    i thought bobby wagner showed well at the senior bowl...i think he can make someones roster as a specials guy at least

    As I continue to go back and study the film more on these prospects, I've made a slight adjustment to my board.

    Kirk Cousins moved up 1 spot in my quarterback rankings, B.J. Coleman dropped a spot.



    Coleman:

    - pocket presence
    - accuracy & ball placement
    - coverage recognition



    Cousins:

    + coverage recognition *consistently read the flat defender correctly on the slant/flat read*
    + better anticipation and reading defender's intent vs. zone
    + ball placement and velocity on very difficult intermediate throws between defenders
    + consistent release point and gets good extention of throwing arm
    + ball comes out of his hand very clean with tight spin when he sets his feet

    TedSlimmJr....I was recently having a conversation with a friend about RGIII and at the time it seemed very obvious that with the Skins trading up to number 2 that they would go after him...but now I am having some doubts..I thought that it was pretty interesting that you had Tannehil ahead of RGIII..can you give some insight on it? I have never been a fan of Griffin as a pro qb..and I like Ryan alot....I agreed with Ck about his funny release at times and he just does not pass the eye test with me as far as his build is concerned..Do you think there is any chance that Tannehil goes number 2 to the skins? They both ran some bootlegs in college and both throw the ball pretty good on the run but with Tannehil you get the pro level size...

    From NFL.com
    Those last couple of sentences...not good. 1.6 seconds on your 10 yard split? That tells me he lacks that short area quickness to get separation at the LOS.
