Re: Post-Combine - The Patsfans Risers/Fallers Donnybrook Discussion
- Pat White, QB.
- Andre Brown, RB: Good size/speed.
- Donald Brown, RB: Looked very good.
- Ian Johnson, RB: More athletic than anticipated.
- Darius Heyward-Bey, WR. Obvious.
- Brian Robiskie, WR. Looked fluid and smooth. 2nd-3rd round.
- Deon Butler, WR.
- Johnny Knox, WR.
- Jason Smith, OT: Obvious.
- William Beatty OT: Obvious.
- Aaron Curry, LB. Obvious. On another level from the other LBs.
- Clay Matthews, LB. Looked better than his teammates in almost every facet. Good agility and good times in the shuttle and 3-cone.
- Connor Barwin, DE/OLB. Obvious. One of the best overall performances of the combine.
- Michael Johnson, DE/OLB. 6'7" 266# with 4.75 speed and good agility in the drills. Was better in space than I anticipated.
- Darius Butler, CB. Good speed, great vertical/long jump, good feet, looked smooth in drills. Will challenge Alphonso Smith and DJ Moore.
- Vontae Davis, CB: Benefitted mainly from Malcolm Jenkins' poor performance, may be the #1 CB on some boards.
- Joe Burnett, CB: Being branded "best value" by Mayock can't hurt.
- Donald Washington, CB: A 45" vertical will get some people's attention and move him up.
- Louis Delmas, S. Weighed in a bit heftier than thought at 202#, Really looked the part. Interviewed well.
- Patrick Chung, S.
- David Bruton, S. Good size/speed/agility numbers.
- Stephen Hodge, S. Impressive size/speed.
- Chip Vaughn, S. Moved into round 3 territory.
- Andre Smith, WR. Obvious.
- Michael Crabtree, WR. May not have fallen far, but being shorter than imagined and having a stress fracture can only hurt his stock.
- Derrick Williams, WR.
- Jaison Williams, WR.
- Josh Freeman, QB: nice physical specimen, but no accuracy. I hope someone like the Jets jumps on him, but he didn't look good at all.
- Shawn Green, RB: Big lumbering truck. A load, but little speed/agility.
- LeSean McCoy RB: Missed a big opportunity to look good given how poorly all the other RBs looked.
- Everett Brown, DE/OLB: measured in at 6' 1 1/2", awfully short for a DE or even a 3-4 OLB. His 4.73 was not exceptional. Hard to see one of the top 11 jumping at a 6' 1/12" DE/LB with 4.73 speed. Didn't run the short shuttle or 3-cone, which leaves big questions about his agility as an OLB.
- Rey Maualuga, ILB: Slow and lacking power. Injury may have had something to do with it, but he comes across as nonchalant and unfocused.
- James Laurinaitis, ILB: Slow and unimpressive. Didn't stand out at all.
- DJ Moore, CB: Ran a 4.54 40, measured in at shorter than expected (5' 8 7/8") and didn't look particular smooth; almost fell while flipping from his backpedal. Looked like he was forcing it.
- Coye Francies, CB: No more 1st round hype.
- Dominique Johnson: Unimpressive all-around.
- Kevin Ellison, S. 4.85, and poor agility. Looks like a LB.
- Nic Harris, S. See Kevin Ellison.
- Emmanuel Cook, S. Unimpressive in every facet.
- Jeremy Maclin, WR. Didn't show tremendous speed, but no one seems to think he fell.
- Percy Harvin, WR. Not sure how he came out of all this.
- Brandon Pettigrew, TE. Slow, but not sure it will hurt him much.
- Aaron Maybin, DE/OLB: His 4.78 was slower than anticipated, but we weighed in at 249# and looked good in agility drills, showing nice ability to play in space and go to the ball.
- Brian Cushing, LB: Not the workout warrior some predicted, didn't look as good as Matthews, but better than Laurinaitis or Maualuga.
- William Moore, S: Weight down to 221#, his 4.53 wasn't bad and he looked better in drills than in the Senior Bowl. But he didn't look like a 1st round pick, nor as smooth as Delmas or Patrick Chung.
- Malcolm Jenkins, CB. Obvious.
- Alphonso Smith, CB: His 5'9" height was better than DJ Moore, but his 4.50 wasn't great, and the drills didn't really show off his ball skills. Interviewed well.
- Sean Smith, CB/S: His height, weight and 40 time were impressive. Looked reasonable in drills. But didn't run a short shuttle or 3-cone, leaving me to question his agility a bit.
Gotta run ... more later.
